Multiple sclerosis is a disease of the nerves and muscles that is generally regarded as untreatable. In fact, when patients are diagnosed with this condition, the usual treatment is merely to support the problems and not attempt to cure the underlying cause. This is generally because there is no cure for multiple sclerosis, but recent attempts into using stem cell therapy in this disease have proven that it may actually be more treatable than traditional doctors expect. Of all the conditions stem cells have been used to treat, multiple sclerosis seems to respond the best to the process.
How Stem Cells Help Multiple Sclerosis
Stem cells can help a condition like multiple sclerosis because the symptoms arise from the breakdown of nerve cells in the body. Plaques form on the nerves and cause impairment to the muscles that respond to those nerves. It is usually a systemic problem, and nerve tissue very rarely regenerates. When nerve tissue is damaged, it tends to remain that way for the rest of the person’s life, causing a great deal of pain and anguish to the patient.
When using stem cells to treat multiple sclerosis, the cells are actually given in a systemic way. They are inserted into the body using an intravenous line, and the cells go anywhere they are needed. In addition, stem cells can differentiate into the cells needed at the time. This means that stem cells can regenerate nerve tissue because they can form the progenitor cells that allow for new nerves to grow. For this reason, stem cells are able to regrow nerve cells that are impacted by the multiple sclerosis, restore movement to muscles, and decrease pain. When the cells are taken from a liposuction procedure, the amount of cells harvested is much greater than with other methods, and this means a more forceful result for the multiple sclerosis patient.
Results from Our Patients
The results from Stemedix patients who have multiple sclerosis have been nothing short of fantastic. We have found that all of the patients who had our treatment came away with some improvement in their condition. This isn’t to say that the disease was cured or went into remission. It simply means that those who had our treatments reported a substantial decrease in various symptoms at the three month and six month marks in their journey. For example one patient described:
“…Bad headaches are gone, vision is better, skin rashes are gone, head tremors are better, neuropathy in feet and hands improved, brain fog has improved; balance/ falling has improved, muscle twitching is gone, jaw/locking is gone; flu like systems are better, terrible nightmares are not happening anymore…”
“Before the treatment I went from the bed to the couch. Now I am able to do some things throughout the day.”
This is good news for multiple sclerosis patients because it means there is something more you can do than simply supporting symptoms. Stem cells offer a way to treat some of the underlying symptoms and help to alleviate them. When other doctors have nothing but medications to keep you comfortable, stem cells have an excellent track record for making multiple sclerosis patients feel better than any other form of treatment. Although it is not a panacea to get rid of all your problems, it is definitely something to look into if you suffer from this condition. Many people around the world have tried stem cells for multiple sclerosis, and it is only a matter of time before it becomes the mainstream treatment for this debilitating condition.
