Living With CCSVI

an active participant in your recovery.

Drink lots of water to maintain optimum blood volume.
Check out this quick quiz to determine how much water you need to drink per day.
Rest After Treatment
Rest, don’t overexert yourself for a few days following treatment. Although it might be tempting, do not test out your abilities. It will take a while for your body to adjust to the change in blood flow. During this time symptoms may wax and wane for a few months.
Healthy Diet and Supplements
Maintain your endothelial healthy diet; See suggested reading on our Supplements page. And take your supplements.
If you are on blood thinners speak with your IR or primary care physician regarding which supplements you are taking to know if they have an effect on your medication.
Here is a list of some natural blood thinners:

Health Care Management Team
Find a medical specialist who you trust to provide follow up care after CCSVI testing and treatment. If you were treated away from home you might want to contact a nearby IR and ask if they would be willing to see you should the need arise. Preferably you will see someone who is familiar with CCSVI and MS and who has performed CCSVI treatment before. In addition you want your primary care physician to be aware of your situation and perhaps, provide him/her with research articles regarding CCSVI testing and CCSVI treatment.
It is our recommendation that you consider having a naturopath, acupuncturist, nutritionist, or other nutritional specialist to discuss your diet and supplementation.
It has always been the Hubbard Foundation’s philosophy that meditation has a profound effect on the brain. Previous foundation work was spent studying these effects.
Any form of meditation will be valuable, find what works for you to increase your sense well-being and quality of life.
Although venoplasty CCSVI treatment can help ameliorate some of the symptoms as a result of MS lesions, it may not be able to resolve all. Therefore, participating in a physical therapy program, possibly with the inclusion of electric stimulation may be useful (see Terry Walls MD Minding My Mitochondria).
Make sure to let your trainer know that you have a vascular disorder. Take it slow and listen to your body.
