Advice & Tips: This treatment totally eliminated cogfog and fatigue. My bladder function is dramatically improved, but not 100%. My spasticity is better. If my legs would work, I would be unstoppable, I don't 'feel' like I have ms anymore---my head feels normal. I can see improvements with physical therapy and expect to do better in the future. I was treated twice, the first time was not very thorough and missed major valvular blockages, so I went for a second round in NYC which cost $10,000 and was worth every penny.
