A half-million Americans have a medical condition from multiple sclerosis symptoms a disease that attacks the insulating myelin sheath surrounding neurons and, as a effect, compromises brain and spinal cord nerve signals. Symptoms include distorted vision, blindness, dizziness, numbness, muscle weakness, a lack of coordination and balance, speech impediments, tiredness, tremors, sexual dysfunction and bowel and bladder problems.
For now at the moment, there is no recognized medical cure for multiple sclerosis (MS), but a hopeful alternative approach has been developed using electromagnetic fields (EMFs) to treat the pineal gland.
Studies have found proof suggesting that there is a correlation between multiple sclerosis and dysfunction of the pineal gland. Researchers applied extremely low strength, pulsed EMF to invigorate the gland. This treatment was successful in creating marked symptom enhancement in 60% to 70% of multiple sclerosis patients in the study, and the remainder noticed mild to fair improvement.
No one knows what causes multiple sclerosis but a latest discovery made by an Italian surgeon possibly will change the depressed life style for millions of multiple sclerosis sufferers around the earth.
Dr. Zamboni's spouse, Elena began to experience mysterious attacks of vertigo, lack of sensation, temporary sight loss and overwhelming exhaustion. They were typical signs of multiple sclerosis, a potentially debilitating neurological disorder.
Using ultrasound to observe the vessels leading in and out of the brain, Dr. Zamboni made a astonishing find: In more than 90 per cent of people with multiple sclerosis, as well as his spouse, the veins draining blood from the brain were deformed or blocked. In people without multiple sclerosis, they were not.
He hypothesized that iron was damaging the blood vessels and allowing the heavy metal, along with other undesirable cells, to cross the crucial brain-blood barrier. (The barrier keeps blood and cerebrospinal fluid separate. In MS, immune cells cross the blood-brain barrier, where they destroy myelin, a crucial sheathing on nerves.)
More stunning even now was that, when Dr. Zamboni carried out a simple operation to unclog veins and get blood flowing normally again, many of the symptoms of multiple sclerosis sufferers disappeared. The procedure is similar to angioplasty, in which a catheter is threaded into the groin and up into the arteries, where a balloon is inflated to clear out the blockages. His spouse, who had the surgical procedure three years ago, has not had an attack ever since.
I am positive that this could be a revolution for the research and diagnosis of multiple sclerosis, Dr. Zamboni said in an interview.
