During a seminar held at the Arab Media Forum headquarters in Yarmouk, a Kuwaiti doctor and academic has urged the Ministry of Health to take the necessary steps to launch a research program to investigate the possibility of venous catheterization being helpful in treating Multiple Sclerosis (MS) symptoms.
It only takes around 15 minutes, and it reduces the [MS] symptoms drastically,” he said, adding that neither the health minister or his deputy have suggested that the procedure should be completely stopped. “All they said is that we should hold back a little bit until we are sure this procedure is safe, and I agree with them,” he explained.
Dr. Sinan explained that Multiple Sclerosis is an incurable disease that usually occurs in young adults, which is caused by an as-yet unexplained condition, wherein the human immune system attacks nervous system. It occurs more in females than male, and its symptoms include visual problems, fatigue, muscle weakness and other nervous system related symptoms.
So far there is no known cure for this fatal disease,” said Dr. Sinan. “There was, however an experiment by an Italian doctor that found a correlation between many symptoms of the disease and narrowed neck veins, and many of those symptoms can be removed by a simple procedure to widen the neck veins.” In many cases where this procedure has been carried out, he said, patients’ conditions improved enormously.
