You’ve got to love the name: “Liberation Treatment.” That was marketing genius. I’ve got a bit of an issue here. The doctor doesn’t just open up veins for MS patients. He rejects the idea that MS is an autoimmune disease. Based on?
I’ve written about MS before. It appears to have a definite connection to vitamin D deficiency, which acts in the body as an immune modulator. In a susceptible group of individuals, nerve inflammation results. Various viruses, including EBS, are implicated in worsening the condition. Nowhere does MS say to me: this is all due to venous blockages.
So far, so good. But what is the evidence? Dr. Zamboni has great results, but no one else has been able to replicate them. So either go to Zamboni or consider doing something else. Other researchers have also been unable to document his findings of neck vein blockages.
What is a patient to do? Well, before having someone roto-rooter your veins, you might have your PCP order some EBS titers during times of worsening symptoms. When I did this with one patient, we found her thirty to fifty day worsening cycles matched exactly to the fluctuation of her viral titer. She was much more able to maintain function knowing what was making things worse. There are a few more non-toxic ideas at my website.
