Multiple Sclerosis has long been treated life as a lifelong debilitating nerve degeneration. The disease affects around 3 million people around the world always causing mental and physical disabilities that can destroy any quality of life for those with this disease MS. It has long been known and accepted that there is no cure for this disease so all the attention has been focused on treatment well a doctor named Paolo Zamboni in Italy has announced a new type of treatment for Multiple Sclerosis which affects more than 3 million people in the entire world. Dr. Zamboni took 65 patients with relapsing-remitting MS and did a simple operation to unblock restricted blood flow out of the brain. He showed that 2 years after the surgery 73% of those with MS had no symptoms. Dr. Zamboni has stated that many types of MS are actually created by a blockage of the pathways that removes excess iron from the brain and by simply clearing out a couple of major veins will reopen the blood flow and the root cause of the disease.
This discovery came as part of a personal quest to cure his own wife as she begin to show the debilitating symptoms of MS and lead him to spend countless hours reading everything ever written on MS and came to the realization that MS is simply a excess of iron in the brain and the buildup thereof can cause damage in the blood vessels in the brain. This lead him to test those with MS with an ultrasound machine to see if this idea had any merit and discovered that more than 90 percent of those tested had a sort of abnormality of malformation in the block veins that drain blood from the brain.
Basically he is saying that MS is caused by a buildup of iron in the brain caused by blockage and damage to vital blood vessels and as the vessels rupture they permit the iron and immune cells to cross the blood brain barriers and into the cerebro-spinal fluid and when the immune cells have direct access to the immune system they quickly begin their attack on the myelin sheathing of the cerebral nerves and thus causes the term Multiple Sclerosis. He has then named the problem as Chronic Cerebro-Spinal Venous Insufficiency, or CCSVI.
The end of the love story for Dr. Zamboni is that after 3 years since the surgery performed on his own wife she has not had any symptoms nor attacks.
This is great news for those suffering from this debilitating disease and we just hope that this can be adopted by the big MS institutions and Jerry Lewis MS marathon drives that collect millions of dollars per year for this disease and show little or no positive results and that they turn invest that money in this kind of research and get rid of MS for good.
