Data From Multiple Sclerosis Patients
Re: ABC Treatment
I received my first treatment 3-6-00 at the North City
Chiropractic Health Clinic from Dr.Cheri Markos. Since that
date I have gone twice each week. I have been declining with
multiple sclerosis and all the various symptoms since 1988.
I have tried many treatments for relief and have been on Avonex
since 1996. 1 have not seen any significant results or have
had any real relief. Main stream doctors and naturopaths have
My symptoms and disabilities have become more of a challenge
in the past 5 years. I now know I have crossed over to secondary
After the very first treatment from Dr. Markos the results
were amazing. There was no waiting period to see if there
would be any results. It was immediate. Ever since that initial
visit I notice more and more of my body coining back to me.
My balance, strength, energy and mobility, to name just a
few, have improved dramatically. I can now bend over and pick
up things with bent legs without falling, I feel so much stronger
and stable. I can look around without experiencing significant
vertigo, a real bonus!!!!!!!
I could really go on and on. The bottom line is that the
ABC treatment provided by Dr. Markos works. It has worked
for everyone that has received the treatment. I have referred
a couple of people who also have seen immediate and dramatic
results. Even those patients who have a lot more disability
I would like to recommend that anyone who has MS go for
treatment from Dr. Markos. The results are staggering!! !

Sclerosis. For more data on the reason this works so well

Advanced BioStructural Therapy February 23, 2000
My name is Larry Conaway, I was DX with MS in August 1996,
at the age if 50. I was DX with primary progressive, and at
this time the VA put on a bunch of meds. Dr. Markos has been
treating me off and on for the last two years. About six months
ago I lost the ability to raise my left leg that Dr. Markos
was able to keep working it for one and half years.
Dr. Markos learned the Advanced BioStructural Therapy
now called Advanced BioStructural Correction) and then
asked me if I wanted to try this new procedure. I am always
ready to try anything new that would help people with MS.
Then I started the ABC with DR. Markos on February 16,
Since then I have had three appointments, on the 18th,
21st, and the 24th .
The first appointment was like a miracle to me. After
my very first session I could stand up straight and walk more
stable, bend over from the waist and pick up objects off the
floor and stand back up again, walk down stairs with less
worry of my left knee giving out, and no back pain, which
I have had for the last three years. I have only noticed a
moderate improvement while walking up the stairs.
I noticed that when I walk, that my left leg does not
hyperextend backwards. This has relieved the pain that I have
been getting around my patella. The VA was about to make me
a knee brace for that knee and now I don't think that I will
When I walk forward, my left leg will bend forward at
the knee and it has not done that for about two years. I can
swing my left leg forward and now when I walk that makes it
easier to walk smoothly. I can also turn around while standing
up without having to hold onto a wall or other balance object
and this is at a fast rate of turning.
My left foot has been a floppy foot since I was DX with
MS back in August of 1996, and now I can hold it up as I walk
and that keeps me from having to drag it along, and that keeps
me from tripping over it also.
I noticed that I can now stand on either leg while resting
the other one. My legs do not get fatigued as fast as before
the procedure. I have been able to stand on my legs for a
longer time with out having to sit down.
I find that it is a lot easier to get in and out of the
shower. I can spend more time in the shower without my legs
getting tired. I can bend over and get the soap with out worrying
about falling down.
I am finding it easier to get dressed and undressed, and
putting on my shoes is a snap now.
Working in the kitchen making dinner or just getting my
coffee is easier now also. I think that this is a great benefit
to be able to do what I need to do in the kitchen.
I now spend less time in my wheel chair and more time
on my feet.
I have noticed that before my appointment on the 24th,
that my head and neck were further forward and that my body
has started to slump forward. After the treatment, I noticed
that I was no longer slumped forward and my shoulders were
back. I did notice that my left hip seemed to be lower than
it was after the first treatment. I am now back at the point
of the first appointment and the above descriptions.
February 26th, 2000: I noticed that I was leaning to the
left and a little slumped forward since the last adjustment
and Dr. Markos adjusted it back so that I was standing up
straight again. At this appointment, we started ABC
procedure on my friend Mark Wheat. I helped DR. Markos with
this by being the camera man. At first I found it hard to
stand and hold the camera for a long period of time and hold
it steady too. Then after do this for a few minutes I was
able to settle down and even hold the camera steadier. This
was hard for me while I was standing with just one eye open
and the other eye in the view finder. It took a couple of
minutes and then my body got trained, as far as holding the
camera steady and moving with one eye shut, to filming the
procedure. I could stand and move with the camera and hold
it fairly steady at this point.
I also stopped taking Baclofen and now I am waiting to
see if I need to keep taking it or not.
Catherine Sykes Seattle, WA
Advanced BioStructural Correction With Dr. Markos
began March 1 5. 2000.
The following physical capabilities began to occur after
I use a walker or am assisted by someone in public because
my balance is poor and my left leg is weak, when at home I
use a cane or wall walk.
I am able to breathe deeply for the first time in years. My
body feels less stiff arid more open. I am able to make the
transition from barefoot to AFO & arch supports much easier.
I am sleeping 10 hrs at night w/ 1 hr naps.
I am able to stand straight and up right with my shoulders
back, I am no longer hunched over. The left leg has an AFO
but I have noticed it collapsing on me.
I can stand up straight without holding on to anything or
using my arms for balance, I can flail them about w/o being
thrown off balance.
My feet, calves and arches ache and I noticed I am sleeping
10 hrs w/ naps.
I feel stiff, very emotional & crying all day.
I was in my barefoot and bent down to pick up a bowl off the
floor w/o planning how I was going to manage this endeavor.
It just happened! I have noticed the warmth returning to my
feet and hands. I can walk better w/o my AFO and support.
My walking flows and is less choppy. I am able to stand up
straight with my hands clasped in front to my chest or abdomen.
I do not have to hold on to anything or use my arms for balance.
My hands and feet are warm / I had a massage and feel so much
I can feel the arches in my feet, as though they are returning
My dog(70 Ibs) began laying on my legs, I could feel exactly
where he was and feel his paws as he raced over my shins and
jumped off the bed. Before I would just feel a weighted mass
at my legs and was unable to distinguish it, this all occurred
w/o looking at what was happening to my legs.
My left leg is weaker than the right but I have noticed
that I am able to bare weight equally on both legs w/o favoring
to the left or having it collapse on me. I am able to take
5 steps w/o using my cane or wall walking, this all occurred
in my barefoot. (I hyper extended my left leg )
My AFO and supports were bothering me so I took them out,
I barely noticed they werent in when my left foot did
turn out, I was tired and needed to rest. I tried this for
only 4 hrs today.
