There is hope for a new type of a MS cure due to studies performed by an Italian doctor. These studies have found there to be a connection between CCSVI in patients and the occurrence of MS. Dr Zamboni’s studies indicated that CCSVI in Multiple Sclerosis patients can be treated to provide relief from symptoms associated with MS. A promising study for an MS cure Italy researchers completed involved 65 patients who underwent an operation to alleviate CCSVI and the results showed that 73 percent of this group no longer had MS symptoms after 2 years.

The condition named CCSVI stands for ‘chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency’ and it causes blood in both the brain and spine to be unable to make it back to the heart. To diagnose CCSVI an ultrasound is usually taken of the veins in various parts of the head and neck. The procedure for this possible MS cure found is called extracranial and transcranial Doppler sonography, and with this procedure doctors use a set of 5 criteria, but only 2 criteria must be present for a diagnosis of CCSVI. The major signs doctors are looking for while studying the high resolution image produced by the ultrasound, are signs of narrowing or deformity in the main veins of the central nervous system, or any other signs which show that blood flow through these veins has been reduced. These signs, usually point to CCSVI, although similar reductions of blood flow could also be caused by an obstruction of some sort.


MS Cure News


Promising news regarding an MS cure 2010 brought about has to do with the fact that the environment also plays a role in the presence of MS. The reason for this is that a lack of sunshine will lower the amount of vitamin D gained naturally, which is why it is important to enjoy some sunshine each day. A daily dose of the sun’s rays helps the body to create a small amount of vitamin D and could be a link to a new MS cure. However, environment isn’t solely to blame as the genetic makeup of a person can also contribute to Multiple Sclerosis.

Some scientists believe that taking a vitamin D supplement is very good for patients afflicted with MS, as long as they understand that they need to take much higher doses than those recommended on the vitamin D bottle. The dose recommended for an average person tends to be around 1,000 IU, but for MS patients, a dose that will have the desired effect needs to be closer to 14,000 IU or higher. Researchers looking for an MS cure have even seen success with dosages as high as 40,000 IU for a short period of time.
