CCSVI and Multiple Sclerosis
Untangling CCSVI from MS: The Stories, The Science, and the Need for Action
February 15, 2016
Chronic cerebrospinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI) is linked through current research to the top six neurodegenerative diseases, afflicting hundreds of thousands of Canadians and millions worldwide. First identified in MS by Dr. Paolo Zamboni, CCSVI disturbs regular blood flow through the brain and, hence, exposes the brain’s vital tissues to a deficiency of oxygen and the presence of damaging toxins, including iron. This video, produced by the Canadian Neurovascular Health Society (formerly the National CCSVI Society) with the help of Cedarwood Productions Inc, explores how CCSVI has affected the lives of those with MS, both those who have been treated and those who have not. It interviews researchers and doctors behind CCSVI in the hopes that new science will prompt urgent widespread action to increase knowledge and bring all available treatment options to Canadians.
