The treatment is especially helpful for relieving acute disease symptoms, such as fatigue, blurred vision, sleeplessness, heat intolerance, bladder control - and only time will tell if people treated for their vascular condition will ultimately find relieve from the more chronic symptoms.

There is no rational basis on which one can deny the links between MS and venous disorders of the brain and spine. Any neurologists who think otherwise needs to do a good literature search and refresh their training with an open mind.
