MS Fact or Wishful Thinking

2015-1206 Looking for the Cure

Disclaimer

I have not fact checked the following information. As such, I can neither confirm nor deny the information reported below is accurate. However, my instinct tells me the “cure” is not repeatable in an independent study. I would like to think Multiple Sclerosis (MS), or even a small portion of MS, is curable with a simple surgery, but I doubt whether or not such a solution currently exists, or that it was recently discovered. I have two reasons to doubt the validity of the simple cure: 1) millions of people still have MS and 2) mainstream media has not picked up the story.

Italian doctor may have found surprisingly simple cure for Multiple Sclerosis

According to the article by Lussy Williams, an Italian doctor has been getting dramatic results with a new type of treatment for Multiple Sclerosis, or MS, which affects up to 2.5 million people worldwide. In an initial study, Dr. Paolo Zamboni took 65 patients with relapsing-remitting MS, performed a simple operation to unblock restricted blood flow out of the brain – and two years after the surgery, 73% of the patients had no symptoms. Dr. Zamboni’s thinking could turn the current understanding of MS on its head, and offer many sufferers a complete cure.

It will not be long before other medical professions cast doubt on the theory a cure for MS requires nothing more than a simple surgery. I chose to post this story not because I believe it, but because my hope is it will encourage researchers to find an unquestionable cure for Multiple Sclerosis.
