Multiple Sclerosis has justifiably earned a bad reputation for ruining both budding and thriving careers through its sudden devastating appearance. Multiple Sclerosis is a chronic and progressive disease which involves damage to the sheaths of nerve cells in the brain and spinal cord. Symptoms may include numbness of one side of the body (at a time), blurred vision, tingling and pain in parts of the body, fatigue, dizziness and incontinence. Lack of coordination (seen in an unsteady gait) is also a common symptom of Multiple Sclerosis. There is no cure for Multiple Sclerosis although treatments do aid in faster recovery from attacks and in managing symptoms. Multiple Sclerosis Stem Cell Treatment is poised to change all that.
Living with Multiple Sclerosis
Former BBC journalist Caroline Wyatt lived with Multiple Sclerosis (MS) for 25 years before doctors positively identified the disease. Wyatt, who first noticed the initial MS symptoms in 1990, readily admits that it is not an easy disease to diagnose. Being a journalist, the doctors put down the symptoms to ‘repetitive strain injury’. A brain scan in 2001 raised the very real possibility of MS which was eventually confirmed by a spinal tap (which is a more invasive test) in 2015.
Stem Cell Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis
Conventional drug treatments made little headway in slowing down the disease and she got progressively worse. This was when she decided to try Stem Cell Treatment. Considered ‘medically unsuitable’ for clinical trials in the UK, Wyatt made the decision to go to Puebla, Mexico after getting encouraging news from former patients. The prescribed treatment was a course of chemotherapy to burn out the old faulty immune system to enable the harvesting of the stem cells. This process aids in the rebuilding of a new immune system which would, ideally, eliminate the faults of the old one.
Wyatt was inspired by testimonials given by former patients that she spoke to. Some of them who had undergone the Haematopoietic Stem Cell Transplantation (HSCT) treatment were full of praise for the whole process and spoke of ‘near miraculous results’. Wyatt herself is very optimistic after undergoing the same and says she feels better than she has for a long time and is particularly appreciative of the fact that the brain fog that had been her constant companion for years has begun to lift.
Caroline Wyatt’s experiences, from the early misdiagnoses, living with MS symptoms, eventually getting an accurate assessment of her condition and finally embarking on a Multiple Sclerosis Stem Cell Treatment holds many lessons for us. Even while the established medical bodies such as the UK’s National Health Service (NHS) and the watchdog body The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) still consider the treatment as experimental, the results show that 80% of the patients who underwent the treatment showed some degree of responsiveness while better than 50% had the progression of their MS halted.
Examples of the efficacy of Multiple Sclerosis Stem Cell Treatment abound. In this testimonial, Forrest from the United States speaks of his joy at not having to use a cane anymore after receiving stem cell treatment together with a series of supporting therapies for his Multiple Sclerosis. Forrest advises anyone considering Multiple Sclerosis Stem Cell Treatment to do it as the results speak for themselves.
