Montel Williams Multiple Sclerosis

Montel Williams Multiple Sclerosis, Having spent much of his adult life coping with multiple sclerosis and trying various medical options, former talk show host Montel Williams decided an experimental — and controversial — treatment was worth the risk: liberation therapy.
“The only way I can figure out whether or not this works is if I do it myself,” he said of the June 30 medical procedure, which involved a balloon angioplasty to open three narrowed veins in his neck and chest.
When his veins were unblocked, the effect was immediate, he told CTV News.
“That’s when I immediately noticed the first difference,” Williams said, in his first public comments about his personal experience with the procedure. “I got off the table and bent over to put on my shoes and I realized I wasn’t holding on to anything.”
While Williams says that the treatment isn’t a panacea for all of his symptoms, he is adamant that the therapy has benefits for sufferers. Williams spoke to CTV News while in Winnipeg for a recent speaking engagement.
But the traditional medical community has so far refused to endorse liberation therapy, which tries to improve blood flow from the brain to counter the chronic fatigue felt by MS patients.
In fact, a study published early in the Canadian Medical Association Journal early this month concluded that evidence of a link between blocked veins and MS is too conflicting and inconsistent to draw any concrete conclusions.
Still, for the last two years, Italian doctor Paolo Zamboni has popularized a theory that blocked or malformed neck veins cause or somehow contribute to MS, and that angioplasty can treat symptoms.
