Hi. I reviewed the data on CCSVI at the link you provided.

I will give you my personal opinion, as one who lived almost a decade with a family member with severe dementia: This is not something you want to try. There is no clinical evidence that it works -- if there was it would be available everywhere and millions would be using it.

I'm sorry to say this but, personally, I would almost call CCSVI a scam.

I hope this has been helpful for you. I wish your mother and you the best in these difficult times.
