Shocking stuff really.

    I believe they are negotiating with a number or broadcasting companies at present. I will post more when I know when and where it will be aired.

    FPF, It is not science or medicine that skewed the path of evolution. That path is clear. In larger mammals, the average regeneration distance of motor or sensory axons is at least 365 mm, almost regardless of where the injury is located on the spinal cord. So, even if the animal were to evolve regeneration genes, recovery by regeneration will require a year or longer, too long an animal to survive to spread its regenerative genes by procreation. All the animals that can regenerate their spinal cords all have spinal cords that are less than 5 cm long. When we apply regenerative therapies, we are adding something that did not evolve.

    Wise.

    So I couldnt evolve "freakish" axons which regenerate faster and further?

    Whenever an ancient mammal was laying around slowly recovering from a spinal cord injury our ancestors probably ate them.

    I was hoping that this thread contained instructions on where to find the magic cure but no such luck. Does anyone else have one? Because that would be great right about now.

    Whatever the theories based on evolution, (and regardless of how many of our ancestors scored a good meal from recovering bigger mammals!) this is the ultimate defeatism that the allegedly smartest, though lest wise at times, creature on the planet should resist with all his strength and will. It is twaddle.

    In rehab, a consultant told me he "never" says never. I had mentioned the case of a school friend whose grandfather was injured in WW1 would be told that he would "never walk again". Later he walked from Bournemouth to Torquay, and additionally went on to live an active life until well into his 80s.

    These dismal doctors should be reminded of the saying "while I live, I hope".

    Having come in at the tail end of this thread, on picking up a recent addition to it, I found the original posts very interesting. I have heard of Edgar Cayce, but cannot profess a study of what he did.

    Mention is made of what we may call faith healing, or to put it another way, mind over matter.

    While sticking to strictly medical ethos, have I missed mention of double blind? This uses placebos, but the statistics are gathered from an independent arbiter: neither the patients nor their doctors know who got one or the other. As there are instances where alternative therapy gave positive results, we may draw further conclusions from that.

    Having said that, what Manoulli asked about placebo being a therapeutic tool, I find interesting. At present, we cannot (and should not) be dogmatic either way. Only some are healed when visiting Lourdes.
