Arteriovenous malformation
Posted by: mark

I have an arteriovenous venous malformation (cavernous angioma) in my brain on the the left parietal lobe bordering the occipital lobe. There is a dark circle surrounding it which is hemosiderin. It is small and two neurosurgeons have refused to deal with it because of the location. The neurologist and primary doctor will not prescribe anything for intense pressure in the head as well as dizziness and lightheadedness, and many other symptoms. Are there any natural and safer ways to deal with this since once again the conventional doctors refuse to help a patient in need?

The thing which comes to mind is hawthorne which is said to strengthen the structure of the vascular system. Of course, vitamin C should be on board at all times for routine repair of the wall of the arteries and veins. That does sound like it might be a dangerous location to operate and I would defer to the surgeons on that question.
