Defeating Progressive MS without Drugs
Dr. Terry Wahls
I am a clinical professor of medicine at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine in Iowa City, Iowa, U.S.A., where I teach internal medicine residents in their primary care clinics. I also do clinical research and have published over 60 peer-reviewed scientific abstracts, posters, and papers.
In addition to being a doctor, I am also a patient with a chronic, progressive disease. I was diagnosed with relapsing remitting multiple sclerosis in 2000, around the time I began working at the university. By 2003 I had transitioned to secondary progressive multiple sclerosis. I underwent chemotherapy in an attempt to slow the disease and began using a tilt-recline wheelchair because of weakness in my back muscles. It was clear: eventually I would become bedridden by my disease. I wanted to forestall that fate as long as possible.
Because of my academic medical training, I knew that research in animal models of disease is often 20 or 30 years ahead of clinical practice. Hoping to find something to arrest my descent into becoming bedridden, I used PubMed.gov to search scientific articles about the latest multiple sclerosis research. Night after night, I relearned biochemistry, cellular physiology, and neuroimmunology to understand the articles. Unfortunately, most of the studies were testing drugs that were years away from FDA approval. Then it occurred to me to search for vitamins and supplements that helped any kind of progressive brain disorder…

Terry Wahls, M.D’s practical guide to managing MS and other autoimmune disorders, in which she shares the remarkable story of her transformation from a zero-gravity wheelchair to biking every day, despite her progressive MS, and outlines the program she developed using the Wahls Paleo Diet™ and more, inspired by functional medicine and Paleo diet principles, currently the subject of an ongoing clinical trial. The book has been sold to Avery (Penguin). Projected publication date: 2014.

Dr. Riordan has more than 60 scientific articles in international peer-reviewed journals. In the stem cell arena, he and his colleagues have published more than 20 articles on Multiple Sclerosis, Spinal Cord Injury, Heart Failure, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy, Autism, and Charcot Marie Tooth Syndrome. In 2007, Dr. Riordan’s research team was the first to discover and document the existence of mesenchymal-like stem cells in menstrual blood. For this discovery his team was honored with the “Medical Article of the Year Award” from Biomed Central. Other notable journals in which Dr. Riordan has published articles include the British Journal of Cancer, Cellular Immunology, Journal of Immunotherapy, and Translational Medicine.
Riordan has authored two book chapters on the use of non-controversial stem cells from placenta and umbilical cord. He is also an established inventor as and inventor or co-inventor on more than 25 patent families, including 11 issued patents.
Dr. Neil Riordan’s team collaborates with a number of universities and institutions, including National Institutes of Health, Indiana University, University of California, San Diego, University of Utah, University of Western Ontario, and University of Nebraska.
Dr. Riordan is also the founder of Aidan Products, which provides health care professionals with quality nutraceuticals. His team developed the product Stem-Kine, the only nutritional supplement that is clinically proven to increase the amount of circulating stem cells in the body for an extended period of time. Stem-Kine is currently sold in 35 countries.
Dr. Neil Riordan has made a number of novel discoveries in the field of cancer research since the mid-1990s when he collaborated with his father Dr. Hugh Riordan on the effects of high dose intravenous vitamin C on cancer cells and the tumor microenvironment. This pioneering study on vitamin C’s preferential toxicity to cancer cells notably led to a 1997 patent for the treatment of cancer with vitamin C being granted. In 2010, Dr. Riordan was granted an additional patent for a new cellular vaccine for patients with cancer.

Dr. Arata on CCSVI
Dr. Arata is an accomplished physician internationally respected for his work in Interventional Medicine. He specializes in treating chronic venous obstruction and venous occlusive disease. His experience in this area spans for more than a decade, long before the discovery of CCSVI. He has performed several thousand of central venograms and angioplasties for blocked veins for a variety of different diseases and over 1500 CCSVI procedures.
Dr. Arata is Board Certified in Phlebology, the study of veins. He has also completed a fellowship in endovascular procedures. Since endovascular techniques are used in the treatment of CCSVI and dysautonomia symptoms, this fellowship training is very important to ensuring expert care and maximum safety for our patients.
A graduate of UCSF School of Medicine, Dr. Arata completed his four year residency at Duke University Medical Center. After completing an Interventional Radiology fellowship at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Dr. Arata joined Hoag Hospital where he served as Director of Endovascular Therapy. He left hospital based care in 2005 to develop the first outpatient based vascular practice in Southern California.
