One is wise to explore the issues. The Zamboni treatment for MS, for example, is unproven.
Yet, many continue to sign up for expensive treatments in other countries.
The risks are huge. If there are complications in one's own country, how does a patient seek medical help? Do they return, at great expense, to the originating country?
In addition, non-medical practitioners are hosting information meetings at which MS patients are given stories of miracle cures. As with any treatment, the side effects and the long-term effects most concern me. It should be studied.
There is no balance at such meetings. People are selling, or remortgaging their homes to pay for a cure.
In fact, such treatment must be based on clinical trials, research, and peer-reviewed studies that are paid for by an objective source.
