Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an unpredictable, often disabling disease of the central nervous system (CNS) that disrupts the flow of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. According to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society, the disease is thought to affect more than 2.3 million people worldwide, that number may be a significant underestimate since MS is not a reportable disease and no centralized reporting system exists at this time. Also, MS can be difficult to diagnose. Since there is no single test for MS, the diagnosis can be missed, delayed or even incorrect.
In MS, the immune system malfunctions destroying the myelin which is the fatty substance that coats and protects nerve fibers in the brain and spinal cord. Often times, the myelin is compared to the insulation coating that surrounds electrical wires. When the surrounding protective myelin is damaged and the nerve fibers are exposed, the messages traveling along the nerve become slow or potentially blocked. In some cases, the nerve becomes damaged.
Stem Cell Treatment for MS
Umbilical cord and amniotic stem cells are potentially the most diverse and effective healing agents and have been proven to treat an astounding variety of conditions, ranging from injuries to chronic, debilitating diseases. Over a million young stem cell treatments and counting have been performed and many have improved health and quality of life for patients with unmet clinical needs.
Stem cells are highly potent healing agents in the body and have shown therapeutic effects through a wide range of modalities.
In any type of treatments for MS, it is essential to address the underlying cause of autoimmunity through modulating the immune system in addition to repairing damaged neurological tissue. The primary causes contributing to the progression of MS is due to the body’s autoimmune attack against the central nervous system causing damage to the nerve fibers and their protective myelin sheath. Groundbreaking research indicates that umbilical cord stem cells have the potential to address these two main causes that contribute to the progression of Multiple Sclerosis by inhibiting the immune attack against the central nervous system and stimulating regeneration damaged tissue in the body. Umbilical cord combined with Amniotic stem cells treatment have the ability to address both fundamental causes of the disease by selectively homing to areas of the body of damaged tissue and repair function and healing.
Therapeutic Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy has the potential to improve quality of life benefits associated with Multiple Sclerosis:
- Increased Balance and Coordination
- Reduction or Elimination of Numbness and Tingling Sensations
- Increased Energy & Endurance
- Improved Focus and Concentration
- Reduction or Elimination of Muscle Spasms
- Increased Mobility and Range of Motion
- Improved Bladder Function
- Reduction or Elimination of Chronic or Acute pain
- Increased Muscle Strength
- Improved Memory
- Speech Improvement
- Reduction or Elimination of Depression
- Improved Vision Impairment or Loss
- Increased Sexual Function
- Reduction or Elimination of Headaches
- Improved Sense of Touch
Stem Cell Procedure
Through customized, targeted stem cell treatment plans, our goal is to offer patients access to umbilical cord stem cell treatment that has the potential to significantly improve one’s quality of life. Stem cell therapy consists of a very simple blood draw to extract and separate the platelet rich plasma by board certified physicians. Through our proprietary protocols, the prp is then processed by laboratory technicians in our on-site state-of-the-art laboratory. The stem cells are then comfortably infused back into the patient’s body along with the prp.
