CCSVI Works (MS Liberation Treatment) ..What Big Pharma does NOT want you to know!!

The interests of groups such as big Pharma have taken hostage of our western civilization. I previously wrote about the deceptions of Big Pharma and have a personal example of how they manipulate the health of the general population. This won’t be the last time I write about the corruption of drug companies and the politicians, doctors and other medical professionals who cater to them. I am not against advances in medicine and medicines when used correctly, however Big Pharma has become very corrupt over the past few decades.

In 2008 an Italian Vascular surgeon came up with the biggest MS break-through in the last 50 years. He discovered that many MS patients had chronic cerebro-spinal venous insufficiency (CCSVI). The Liberation treatment of multiple sclerosis the procedure that addresses this problem .By performing a simple angioplasty procedure many MS sufferers show improvements. These improvements are often dramatic.

I am touched by Multiple Sclerosis indirectly as I have some close friends with the disease. CCSVI is not done, nor, is it allowed to be done in Canada. It has been estimated that the procedure would cost $1500 per patient in Canada if done here. It is a small price to pay to have people live more productive lives with less dependence on government assistance. The government has outlawed it to be done for MS patients, even though this same procedure is done everyday for people that have other health conditions. Talk about discrimination against MS patients! It is another example of how doctors and health officials are bullied by big Pharmaceutical companies. They state there is not enough positive data to confirm that is helps. Just from reading articles and listening to people with MS that had this procedure done, it is more promising than any drug introduced recently. I wonder who is calling the shots here? Big Pharma does not want a cure for MS in my opinion. They make too much money from MS to have it taken away from them. Big Pharma wants you sick. Disease is their business. The more diseases and more people they can control the more money they make. Big Pharma controls our health authorities, doctors and governments by bribing and bullying in order to make more money. Big Pharma also has a huge control of the mainstream media who are bribed by millions of advertising dollars.

I want to specifically mention Lisa’s story. Lisa suffers from MS and had to live with this degenerative disease for over 15 years. As well as living with the disease, she had to listen to misguided information from the Canadian MS Society and to a great extent the Canadian medical profession. Lisa was previously on a drug called Avonex at $1500 per month for 16 years, which resulted in a huge cash cow for Big Pharma. Last year Lisa stopped taking this drug and surprisingly felt better afterwards. When Lisa took Avonex she would get flu like symptoms for two days after taking this drug every week. Also while on this drug Lisa would often get migraines. Many MS sufferers take many drugs to help control their disease. These drugs cost thousands of dollars per year for each person. It is estimated that there are about half a million people with MS in North America. That would equate to revenue in the billions for MS drugs for the pharmaceutical industry. In addition to the cost of these drugs, the long-term side affects can cause liver damage, heart disease, osteoporosis and many other serious conditions. Some of these high priced drugs are not fully proven to help people with MS. That is exactly what they have been saying about the CCSVI treatment, that it is not proven. I know personally that while it is not a cure, it has given more relief from MS symptoms than the high priced drugs have. CCSVI should be giving the medical field the right path for a cure for MS.

Lisa had the CCSVI procedure done on June 21, at the Rhode Island Vascular Institute in Providence. I personally accompanied her on this trip. This facility is top notch and Providence is a great city. This procedure cost over $7000. It was a procedure that took a few hours. Lisa, as early as the next day after the procedure regained a great deal of her balance back. Currently, entering the second month after the procedure Lisa continues to improve, with better mobility, less fatigue, improvement in her balance, and coordination. Even her vertigo is gone and her bowel and bladder control has improved as well. This is because of the CCSVI procedure, not the expensive drugs! Are you listening Canadian MS Society? Are you listing Canadian Medicare? I am convinced that that the only thing you listen to is the sound of money and bribes by Big Pharma and a good portion of the medical field that would have to swallow their pride in admitting that Multiple Sclerosis is a vascular disease as opposed to an auto immune disease. Not only would it make a portion of the medical society look bad, they might also lose some kickback money from Big Pharma.

To date more than 15,000 people worldwide have had this procedure done successfully. There have been a few complications from this, mainly with people who have had stints put in. There were a few that did not receive any improvement. However, the improvement of thousands of people with MS far outweigh any risks involved.

The Canadian Government recently announced that they will begin clinical trials for the CCSVI procedure for MS patients. Who will be conducting these trials? Will it be biased doctors and the pharmaceutical industry? To my knowledge they haven’t asked the people that have left Canada to have this done, to participate in trials and studies for this procedure. In fact some doctors have turned their back to the patients that have had this done. Big Pharma along with selfish pride and greed control a great portion of the healthcare industry. The health of the patient is not top priority in many cases. It is time we collectively, as the general population start to change this.

I have added a few short youtube videos of Lisa Gallagher CCSVI.The first was a few days before the procedure and the second one was one day after the procedure. In addition here is Lisa's story in a local news article.

  1. This is a GREAT ARTICLE! I've been saying for a longitime now that the general public/taxpayors need to get involved. What is going on now, is in no way good for Canada. Even looking at the situation, as somebody like Prime Minister Harper might look at it, it makes no economic sense at all. I would like a chance to personally talk to Steven Harper about this situation one time.

  2. Go Lisa! This is fantastic Steve! It's great to see her looking so mobile! Thanks for posting this article. Let's hope the Canadian Government will start showing some ethical behaviour and start listening to studies by medical professionals rather than pharm companies!

  3. I had the procedure Sept. 21 last year in Costa Rica. I have most of my life back. What is sad I have a great deal of info to give but not allow to give it. I do know that if anyone wish to have this procedure if your not willing to do the work afterwards to get stronger you are waisting your money. I still get hard days, but they are like my good days before. I rejected both drugs and gave alot of side affects from them. I can do so much more now and have a more of a life, as I work to get stronger. The disease and problems is still there on my brain, but I am not a slave to it anymore. You are dead on in what you are saying, the sad part is they only want a cure in the drugs not in anything else. Work hard and you will see results-never give up-no matter how long it will take.

  4. many drugs, including those for MS, inhibit or
    however, alter the function of cytochrome P450
    the liver enzyme involved in the function of self-regulation structural and functional vascular wall, which can be no doctor in mind that these drugs may even be among the causes of CCSVI?

  5. Pharmaceutical companies are using stealth marketing tactics by eavesdropping on patients’ discussions on social networks and tracking patients’ “digital footprints” online to target them for advertising according to a Globe and Mail article

  6. one of the biggest ever drug corruption of a disease ever along with MS societys all wanting money out of sick physically sick people been going on for decades

  7. At last an article that gives the CCSVI side of the Liberation Treatment and also the drug company hands in these MS Drugs and the cost to the Health Care System. I have seen so many articles that make MSers look like they are crazy(Placebo effect), that don't tell the true results of the Liberation Treatment. Few if any vascular surgeons have been asked to report on their findings. The Canadian Study is being run by a vascular Surgeon that does not believe in CCSVI.Need I say anymore. The politcians &The MS Society are in bed with the Pharmao companies and MSers are their cash Cows. Moo Moo but not forlong!

  9. Nice to hear so many success stories. I'm very happy for you all :)
    Though I do agree with all said regarding the hypocrisy surrounding the MS Society, Big Pharma, Neurologists etc...unfortunately our family has no happy testimonials to convey.
    My sister (41 years old) had two CCSVI treatments within the last year. The first in Costa Rica July 2010, the second in Los Angles March 2011.
    She was diagnosed with MS at the age of 27. It stayed in its remitting form until about 8 years ago when it turned progressive.
    Neither of these CCSVI treatments she underwent helped at all. Perhaps many of the people who achieve success with CCSVI have remitting MS?...not sure. Needless to say, this failure was a big let down for her spirits, not to mention leaving a huge negative impact on her (and our family) financially ($30,000.00).
    So though it has met with moderate success, I have my doubts on the true benefits of CCSVI overall. There are hundreds of other people afflicted with MS who have not experienced any relief at all from this procedure. Most of us only seem to see blogs/websites displaying the positive side.
    Where are the blogs that are none biased, and display both sides of the coin? More people need to speak up.

  10. I am not a patient but I have a close relative that has advanced MS.
    I agree with everything you say about the corruption of politicians and big pharmaceutical companies. All they want is to sell drugs ; the Pharma are convinced that finding REAL cures would put them out of business. Although they could always continue making money researching other conditions and ailments investing and selling preventive medicine instead of selling illusions to already sick people, making them spend so much money on drugs that won't cure them or improve their conditions.
    As to CCSVI I am not sure what to think at this point. I have seen almost spectacular results for some patients and non existent for others. I think every case is unique; also I think that some persons have very bad veins and they just collapse again after the procedure, that's why sometimes the good effects last only a few weeks/months. Not sure how that can be resolved. I also think that the physicians who provide the liberation treatment right now in several countries are making a huge profit, so they are also 'milking' the current state of things. Why do private treatments cost up to 10 thousand dollars for something you say would cost only 1500? That's insane. Once again health is business and physicians are ruthless.
    I do believe is that all MS related organizations should fight for more government funded research from non biased physicians and scientists all over the world. Vascular surgeons NOT neurologists, because they are far more objective. I hope all MS patients receive proper treatment that can stop the progressive nature of this cruel disease.

  11. I was also so excited about the CCSVI procedure and did my research, met friends on FB that sent me to the vascular surgeon who does the procedure RIGHT IN MY OWN STATE!! NOT IN ANOTHER COUNTRY!!! So I went ahead and got the procedure done with such big hopes and it was covered by my insurance too, only to find out that it DID NOT WORK FOR ME for unknown reasons :( But alas I know there is much to still find out...and so I wait.......

  12. I am yet another success story in the CCSVI angioplasty wars. It was certainly the answer to my "MS" story! Having suffered for over 26 years, to have 99% of my symptoms formerly attributed to MS go away is a remarkable thing! I have friends who have not had the same success as I, but it has still improved their quality of life in some ways. this may not be the answer to 100/% of the puzzle of MS, or for 100% of the patients 100% of the time, but I ask, which disease treatment out there is? Nobody I ask can think of one...

  13. Thanks for sharing a idea....Great post and informative
