Welcome! This blog contains research & information on lifestyle, nutrition and health for those with MS, as well as continuing information on the understanding of the endothelium and heart-brain connection. This blog is informative only--all medical decisions should be discussed with your own physicians.The posts are searchable---simply type in your topic of interest in the search box at the top left.Almost all of MS research is initiated and funded by pharmaceutical companies. This maintains the EAE mouse model and the auto-immune paradigm of MS, and continues the 20 billion dollar a year MS treatment industry. But as we learn more about slowed blood flow, gray matter atrophy, and environmental links to MS progression and disability--all things the current drugs do not address--we're discovering more about how to help those with MS.To learn how this journey began, read my first post from August, 2009. Be well! Joan

Safety and Efficacy of Venoplasty for CCSVI-PUBLISHED RESEARCH
September 1, 2012 at 8:28am
Here is the list of published research on venoplasty for CCSVI. As the stack of publications grows, it is my hope that the media and medical establishment will refer to these studies, and the correct medical terms. This is no longer "controversial liberation therapy"
This is venoplasty, or endovascular treatment, for CCSVI.
