Christopher Alkenbrack’s CCSVI Update on

Christopher was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis at the age of 24. The first signs of the disease came when he was doing graduate work in Linguistics at the Université de Montréal while working full-time for a Québec charity.

After diagnosis Christopher went on to a career as a College (Cégep in Québec), Secondary School teacher, a School Board Pedagogical Consultant, and then a School Principal. In 2001 MS reared its ugly head once again with a series of debilitating attacks that left Christopher unable to work as of 2003, when his MS was slowly transitioning into the Secondary Progressive stage.

After attempting several of the current treatments for MS, Christopher’s MS continued to progress.

In 2009 Christopher learned of Chronic Cerebrospinal Venous Insufficiency (CCSVI). After being tested for this condition in Canada, he sought treatment in Poland in May of 2010.

We are very thankful that Christopher was willing to spend his time with us for an update interview!
