  •  I would be cautious with some of these claims (0+ / 0-)

    1. Even Zamboni himself does not say CCSVI is a cure for MS - it alleviates symptoms of MS, but the underlying disease is still there.

    2. There have been no clinical trials of CCSVI to date. Even in the original 2009 trial of 65 people, only some were helped, and even among the persons helped the benefits have not proven to be lasting in all cases.

    CCSVI, massage, nutrition, etc. can certainly be part of disease treatment and management, but let's not go overboard in pronouncing a cure for MS.

    Liberalism is trust of the people tempered by prudence. Conservatism is distrust of the people tempered by fear. ~William E. Gladstone, 1866
