The History of TVAM

The story of the TVAM treatment begins with a polarizing topic known as CCSVI. Several years ago MS patients from across the globe began coming to my practice in large numbers seeking relief by undergoing venous angioplasty for a recently described venous condition known as CCSVI. The treatment could result

Normalization of HPA Axis Function After TVAM Procedure

The hypothalamic pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis is a critical aspect of human hormonal system, and cortisol is the primary hormone of the HPA axis. The HPA axis is a feedback loop system allowing interaction between the brain and adrenal glands. Abnormalities of HPA axis function are associated with many chronic

New TVAM Study Published in Acta Phlebologica

Michael Arata MD of Synergy Health Concepts published the results of a new study into the safety and effectiveness of the TVAM procedure in patients with autonomic dysfunction.

A New Approach to Treating MS Patients

As MS patients are all too well aware, multiple sclerosis can cause a wide range of symptoms, from weakness and numbness to visual changes. But most MS patients don’t realize that they are very likely to have another condition known as autonomic dysfunction, or dysautonomia, and that it is dysautonomia

Michael Arata MD of Synergy Health Concepts published the results of a new study into the safety and effectiveness of the TVAM procedure in patients with autonomic dysfunction, including patients with multiple sclerosis and other chronic conditions. The study was published in the April 2014 edition of Acta Phlebologica: A

New Study Finds Relationship Between Fibromylagia and Autonomic Dysfunction; Suggests New Treatment Options

A recent study published in the Journal of Clinical Rheumatology explores the connection between fibromyalgia and sympathetic nervous system dysfunction. This meta-study found that 65% of case-control studies found in the PubMed and EMBASE databases described “sympathetic nervous system predominance” as the “common clustering underlying pathogenesis”1, meaning that the onset

Treating Fibromyalgia Patients in a Whole New Way

Fibromyalgia is a difficult syndrome to diagnose and to treat. Worse yet for fibro patients, a large portion of the medical community still does not recognize fibromyalgia as a real or serious condition. What treatments do exist are inconsistent in their effectiveness and largely treat very specific symptoms like pain

Dr. Arata Presents Results of New Study at ISET

The results of Synergy’s new study were released today at the International Symposium on Endovascular Therapy (ISET). The study, which can be found here, investigates whether balloon angioplasty induces alterations in the hypothalamus pituitary adrenal (HPA) axis as indicated by changes in levels of ACTH and Cortisol. 88 patients in
