CCSVI: BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND

CCSVI: BACK BY POPULAR DEMAND

Since the introduction of the concept that many of the Multiple sclerosis symptoms can be caused by a reduction in the drainage of blood from the brain, a concept popularized by Dr. Paolo Zamboni, many of you have wanted to know where the procedure to improve the drainage of blood (dilating the constricted veins) is done in Canada, USA, and Mexico. Below is a list of the cities and provinces.  You will need to locate the major hospital, call and ask about the procedure.  In Canada, you’ll need to call the authorities of the province.

  1. This is excellent news. Sadly WAAAY too late for me, but good news nonetheless.
    I’ve been fortunate to have had two CCSVI sessions. There were two stenosis-es?
    and one side was cleared in September 2010 and again in March 2011. it is now April 2011, but I am worse than ever despite monthly Tysabri, medications of baclofen, provigil, ampyra, macrobid and low dose naltrexone. I recently had Botox injections for the back, shoulder and left arm pain. Nada. I continue to worsen.

  2. They also do CCSVI in Chicago at Rush memorial dr Hector ferral I amhaving it done on may 2nd cross your fingers

  3. Oh boy Ginn….don’t give up. I had the CCSVI procedure too and it did nothing for me. I’ve been on LDN for the past 10 years and that has stopped working the way it had for the first 6 or so. Just keep searching for the reason for your issues. I am not searching all sorts of energy modalities. I really do think that there are many causes and many solutions and hopefully one day we will all find ours.
    With the CCSVI, I have not given up on this as I do think it has merit, I just think maybe something was missed.
    I’m going to now look into something that tests for stressors like dental issues, pathegins, emotional blocks, allergies…that sort of thing. Maybe I’ll zero in on something that is stressing my body.

  4. We reside in Australia and travel for my sister is not an option. We have not been successful in locating a place in Sydney or Australia that do the test let alone the procedure. Can anyone help. She also has secondary progressive MS – is this an option for her? Thanks

  5. Those comments sound scarry to me. Not very uplifting.

    But good luck to everyone who is involved. God Bless.

  6. Many thanks to Dr Cartwright and Sue Ellen once again for your continued work to get our health back to so called normal.
    CCSVI is not recommended by the MS Society of Western Australia to date – would love more success stories.
    I,like Joyce beleive there is a trigger in all of us,that sets off this disease.How to find it takes alot of work.

  7. I have been taken vitamin D3 called Idelos and I find they are helping me a lot thank god also I take fish oil and I agree you have to find what suit you thanks for all your advice and help and Ginn Wild dont give up if you go on a wed site markpollock.com it will give you so much inspiration never to give up
    thanks again

  8. FYI this is NOT being done at all anywhere in Canada right now and Saskatchewan, Manitoba and Yukon provinces are doing Clinical Trials on this that is all.

  9. Apparently an enzyme called Serrapeptase (check it out) cleans out the arteries without the need for surgery. I put my husband on it and hair started to grow on his head which has been bald for years, so something is working. Ginn, don’t know if it will help but research the amino acids which are the brains’ building blocks. You can buy them online but make sure they are in enterically coated form. X-Tend Life Total Balance is a great vitamin supplement with several amino acids in them, but quite expensive. Also, a lot of foods have the acids in them, much cheaper, but perhaps not as effective. There is a lot of info out there on the net. Good luck and by the way, I think the side effects of all the drugs you are taking are probably making things worse. The drug Copaxone is nothing but 4 amino acids and it has no side effects. You might be able to get there taking the amino acids, but as I said, they must bypass the stomach acid intact so need to be coated.

  10. i was treated in oct. 2010 and so far so good…my feet are no longer cold and blue, tremors & shaking are gone, spasms are rare (before it was a daily ordeal), i sleep much better, walking has improved, and i look healthier in general! i quit the drugs except the ldn due to the side effects i had and it wasn’t doing a bit of good for me. i eat healthy, take supplements, go to pt (water therapy is golden). stretch and get massages. i believe that there is something out there for everyone we just have to stumble upon it i guess…and i am proof that its not too late in anyones game!

  11. ON TV AT NOON THE DR SAYS FUNGUS IS THE CAUSE OF POOR HEALTH
    MY SUMMERS WERE SPENT IN UPPER MICHIGAN WHERE FUNGUS IS IN THE GROUND

    KNOW THE CAUSE– TV PROGRAM

    IM GOING TO BUY A BED PAD WITH MAGNETS AND A RING WITH MAGNETS

    I TAKE STRESS PILLS TO RELAX ME VIV PECK ELGIN ILL 68

  12. I had the CCSVI procedure at Synergy in Costa Mesa (Pacific Interventionalists) and am doing better all the time!

    After 2 months, my balance, strength, stamina and especially the fatigue are all better! Now I need a nap after overdoing something, not from MS fatigue. I need to build up more stamina instead of expecting to be able to pick up my life where I left off!

    The procedure was easy, almost painless, and in and out in a few hours. I highly recommend the Doctors at Synergy since they have done this procedure on the jugulars and azygos hundreds of times and have a low re-stenosis rate. I do take care to exercise, eat a healthy whole foods diet and take my omega 3’s and D and The Essentials and keep hydrated.

    Even if you can get tested for it, do it! Its terrific to feel better?

  13. ok i see you have cleveland ohio i live there where are they doing the treatment or test for ccsvi i would like to get tested to see if i have blockage love april

  14. Before I would even consider CCSVI, I continue to use all non invasive items, There is a series of talks on youtube by Dr Cordain who talks about nutrition items. I also think the essentials mentioned on this site are very important, add 2 tablespoons of cod liver oil, 2400 units of vitamin e, 5 grams of lecithin. These are all non invasive options. Make sure you are giving your body all of the best tools and nutrition to heal itself.I also use several Nikken products, including a magnetic matttress pad, magnetic insoles and magnetic and copper braclets. If they each help a little bit it is better than something with serious side effects.

  15. HEY THERE GINA KEEP THE FAITH OK ITS ALL GOING TO WORK OUT FOR YOU GOD IS HEALING YOU AT THIS MOMENT BELIEVE I’M PRAYING THAT YOU WILL BE HEALED AND GOD IS WATCHING OVER YOU EVERY DAY GOD FAMILY AND FRIENDS YOU CAN DO THIS GINA LOVE YA APRIL

  16. It seems to me that there are numerous conditions which share some symptoms and are caused by as many different factors. To call them all MS is the cop out and misleading since we all and each have different factors in the onset and development of those symptoms. If it can be seen on an MRI that there is flow restriction in the veins from the head then the procedure to expand those veins seems like the way to go. If there is not then its the same as fertilising a dead plant; it still won’t grow.
    There does appear to be benefit in removing as many of the toxins from the body as is possible whether there are “MS” symptoms or not. I still struggle in the heat and sometimes with walking. I know that I have felt fantastic at times recently and seek to recreate the circumstances of that. Meanwhile I believe that there is a total disappearance of symptoms possible for me and I do those things which have beneficial effects and not those which have negative effects. I am determined to enjoy life in the moment and not to worry about the future; that will look after itself when it gets here.

  17. I’ve heard all about this breakthru, but it’s still way too far to get to from where I live in Canada. Hopefully it will reach here once it’s been tested enough for all of us to try. Thanks for your work on this tho… much appreciated. I’d like to say also, I know of patients who have had the procedure and had little improvement. Mine is the relapsing remitting kind, which I’ve had for 34yrs. I’m extremely lucky so far, either that, or I tend to be in denial until I have a relapse. Then it’s a different story. Good luck to all!!

  18. A message for Ginn Wild – don’t give up. I have PPMS and it can get pretty grim, but I have to say that in the beginning I read Sue Ellen’s book. She actually had to have the paddles on the chest following a seizure – it doesn’t get grimmer than that; she now leads a normal life. Honestly, I really do believe that this is a process and we each have to find our way – please believe that it will get better and that you will get control of your life back. Good luck.

  19. Thank you very much for the infoprm,ation about vitamin D3 I have only been taking it for about 1 week so it is too early to say if there has been any improvement but mentaly I got quite a lift from the information and Dr Cartwrites information and his web cast
    Thank you very much
    Paul

  20. I am asking the same question that William Baldridge asked. Why are my feet swelling. At first I thought it was the Enablex, doctor prescribed, so I stopped taking it. One month later they were still swelling so I went to my primary care doctor and lookesd up what I am taking and said the Baclofen could be causing it, so I have stopped taking that. I had gone to my vascular doctor and he gave me a sonogram and he said everything was circulating fine. I have PPMS and as for the calcium issue, my vitamin D count was very low.I started taking 5000iu a day and it didn’t get any better after 3 months.So I was told to take calcium with the vitamin D and it went up quite a bit. I am not a heavy dairy eater so after reading your column I stopped taking it and my level plummeted again, went back to the Calcium and it went back up. What do you think?

  21. I had the procedure for CCSVI done on St.Paddy’s day in Costa Mesa CA. It was the best thing that I could ever had done for my ms and believe me I’ve done alot. In the recovery room I could move my ankles and bend my knees without me pulling them with my hands… I cried! I have more energy etc etc. This procedure has changed my outlook on my life (I am a widow since Jan/11) and thought I’d need to move in with family. I am completly independent now.

  22. Can’t help feeling this clip very inspiring

    I hope and think there are a lot of potential in CCSVI, but in Denmark where I live, there is no place to go to get the treatment.

    I have traveled to Germany to recieve PTA, 6 month ago, and still wait on some miracles.

    The only one is, that I don’t need to sleep 16 hours a day, anymore.

  23. I have had the CCSVI procedure (California) with little change. I wanted to mention that a friend who has had the procedure done twice had a second MRI done as well and it showed a reduction in the damage in her brain. And so, perhaps with time, those of us who have had the disease a long time, will gradually heal.

  24. is there anyone in new york
    doing this procedure to improve the drainage of blood (dilating the constricted veins)

  25. llo dr. Cartwright,
    I would like to thank you for your
    recommendations. I was just able to
    buy them
    but I couldn’t find magnesium oxide 800
    they only carried 250 and
    500mgshould I
    take one 500 mg or two? And the omega 3 I
    only found the in 1000 mg and
    1200 mg.
    Ehat do you think I should do? And I also got
    some melatonin 5 mg for
    sleep do
    you think it okay? Thank you for helping me
    out.

  26. I have been diagnosed with MS since 2001. I recently found your website. I have been taking your Essentials and other vitamins and supplements you recommended and changed my diet to gluten, sugar, artificial sweetener, diary free. I am getting around worse than I was before I started all this in February. I was wondering if that’s normal – to get worse before you get better. I am positive that I AM on the road to recovery. Please advise and thank you!

  27. I had my CCSVI treated in Egypt 3 months ago and there is definitely an improvement in symptoms, its good to see an M.S doctor not putting this treatment down as everyone who was treated at the same time as me also had instant improvements, how I saw it was my blood wasn’t flowing. It has made my 8year old so happy that mummy can do things that other mums can.

    I have been using magnesium, omega 3, serrazimes, L’Arginine way before treatment maybe this has helped too

  28. 1.can someome give me a list of pros and cons ?
    2.is this procedure available in the UK ?
    3. are there any trials currently happening with this treatment ?

    Many thanks

  29. . I have had for 30 years and also have suffered from two heart attacks, the last in October 2010 I take anticoagulant drugs and have used a wheelchair for 18 years

    In May of this year I went to Belgium for the treatments and this was organised by world med assist. They were aware of my medical history and were given hospital report listing relevant medical histories and the list of the drugs which I was taking for my heart.

    The operation went ahead but I developed “the league” at the site of entry in the groin I had to spend a night in hospital in Belgium and I was very weak afterwords and this caused the delay to my return home to France.

    Since then I have continued to feel weak and confused and have had no “positive” symptoms. On the seventh of June and was admitted to hospital in extreme pain and spent 8 nights there. The severe urine e infection was diagnosed and I am is still very weak although I have returned home.

  30. Sorry I am dictating and sometimes the machine seems to have a mind of its own. The above should read “I’d developed a bleed”

  31. I work for Vascular Access Centers as their CCSVI Program Specialist. I want to thank you for mentioning our centers on your page and welcome you (or any of your readers) to send any questions about CCSVI treatment my way. We are also planning on doing a webinar with our doctors sometime soon. I will be sure to let you know about it.

    Thank you for all of your enthusiasm and what you do.

    Wonderful stuff!

    All the best,
    Danielle

  32. Another is Skinny Java, which is a Java drink without any sugar or calories that are
    commonly found in coffee drinks. The main key nutrient of
    the popular dietary supplement Primal Lean is irvingia gabonensis (bush mango).

    The first step to a clean body is to control your intake of harmful preservatives and other chemicals.

  33. I agree. I think that MS is not one singular thing. And from years of self investigation, research, and studying ~ I believe MS is more of an umbrella for what are actually varying incidences that trigger a particular set of nerve damage/breakdown, but that there are many ways to it. Some people who have leg and balance problems never experience the ‘Hug’ and vice versa. The symptoms vary of course, because different nerve paths get damaged. But, even though the symptoms vary, they still are within a large group of symptoms that don’t vary. I think a better avenue of official research should be through the symptoms that people have, and trace back to the root cause that way. I think they would find that it is not just one catalyst, but various ones that initiate the process of the myelin breaking down. It could possibly be that depending on the initiator, the treatment might even be vastly different. Not your all-in-one type of treatment. Why do some people who get the CCSVI treatment have spectacular results, and others less, and some almost none? Why does one of the new pills help some greatly, and for others they have a set of medication symptoms that develop that make the MS ones not seem so bad to deal with? That is my husband right there.

    He was a study patient for FTY 720, Fingolimod, and he had to go to theses specialists: Pulmonary, dermatologist, cardiologist, and neurologist-of course—-always checking for any change in these areas. One has to debate if it is worth taking the pill if you develop a heart problem as a result. And, if you feel markedly better for taking the pill, maybe. But his symptoms from the pill were general malaise and foggy minded, bad back pain, hair thinning, insomnia, and other aches and pains that he had not had previously, and went away once he was off it. He went off it after the study since there was a lapse in between the end of his portion of the study and approval from Novartis to keep receiving it. These pill symptoms went away, even his hair became thicker again, and he felt better, even with his MS symptoms, and was off for 2 yrs, not on anything. His MS symptoms are not that much worse for it really, considering the doctors say immediately upon diagnosis: “You must get on something right away”. Why? How about becoming a juicing enthusiast, or going on a raw diet first and see how that goes. And how about changing one’s exercise regiment to include stretching/yoga/ and focused exercises. Isn’t it worth it to see rather that start pumping one’s body full of -as yet proven fully effective- hardcore drugs? Truly – one must think about these things all the time in general, but especially when we may just be replacing one bad thing with another. What’s the problem we want to solve? I say less manufactured drugs and more other avenues of treatment. It’s amazing what the human body can repair … that should be the approach, the starting point from which we work and go from there.

  34. I HAD MY CCSVI IN NEW YORK LAST NOVEMBER (2012) IT HELPED WITH MY INCONSTINACNCE FOR ABOUT 3 MONTHS BUT NOTHING ELSE I DO NOT REGRET HAVING IT DONE AS SOME HAD EXCELLENT RESULTS I WIDSH THEM THE BEST
