Your Body's Nerve Damage
Is your immune system attacking your Myelin Sheath? Would you even know if it was? Sure, you would. You would experience this attack in how your body reacts to those attacks, and you might receive a diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis.
That’s because the Myelin Sheath not only protects your nerves, it protects nerves found in your brain and spinal cord. It is what enables your nerve cells to communicate with one another.
Research on Multiple Sclerosis
Italian researcher Paolo Zomboni first coined the term Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency, which theorizes that Multiple Sclerosis is due to an increase in Iron deposits in the body. That extra iron throughout the body causes the Myselin Sheath to degenerate and autoimmunity. All of that hinders the communication process between the nerves.
It is theorized, according to a recent study, that that Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency may be the result of a vascular condition that hinders proper blood flow. No one is quite sure what causes that abnormal blood flow in MS patients, but it may cause extra iron deposits. That extra iron may go to the brain tissue via the the blood brain barrier.

MS and CCSVI
While the research for the cause of Multiple Sclerosis continues, this study shows the connection between MS and CCSVI may either be vascular or degenerative. It may also involve a mechanical component in the upper cervical spine (C1 Vertebrae).
In order to restore normal blood flow, an MS patient should seek the care of an upper cervical chiropractor. They can examine the upper neck vertebrae for any misalignments in the top two vertebrae in a person's neck that may be contributing to their abnormal blood flow and damage to their nervous system that's manifesting itself as Multiple Sclerosis.
