Preventing Vascular Ageing

Arteriosclerosis is an Inflammatory Process The last decade has shown an increase in the relevance of inflammation and its mediators in vascular biology; thus, the role of inflammation during atherogenesis is now a matter of intense investigation. Basic science studies proved that elements belonging to both innate and adaptive immunity can be involved in theContinue reading “Preventing Vascular Ageing”

Joining the dots in POTS, Migraine and Fibromyalgia

One of the safest aspects about modern medicine is its conservatism, and the need to work within accepted and proven guidelines. It is a safeguard against enthusiastic or entrepreneurial management, and usually protects against unsafe and dangerous practices. This discussion document does not follow mainstream evidence-based medicine and as such, it must be read andContinue reading “Joining the dots in POTS, Migraine and Fibromyalgia”

My Journey

My Journey Around 20 years ago, I was fortunate to meet, and later work with, one of the great pioneers in food related disease, the allergist Dr Mervyn Garrett. For decades, he has been able to prove the relationship between types of food to diseases such as eczema, irritable bowel, colic, reflux, and many more.Continue reading “My Journey”

Inflammation and Autonomic Dysfunction

The rest of this information is generic and my interpretation of current knowledge. This is not mainstream medicine and as such, it must be read and seen as research-based rather than evidence-based which is how medicine usually works, and which does provide a safety net against extreme concepts. Working through the problems leading to POTSContinue reading “Inflammation and Autonomic Dysfunction”

Aortic root and arch dilation

Aortic root and arch dilatation. Preliminary studies suggest a link between aortic root and arch dilatation with thoracic outlet vein compression, the MTHFR mutation, as well as hypermobility syndromes. At present we are investigating the hypothesis that catecholamine and/or inflammatory responses and baroreceptor signaling from vascular compression syndromes, particularly thoracic outlet syndrome are responsible forContinue reading “Aortic root and arch dilation”
