Stem Cell Treatment for Multiple Sclerosis
Stem cells offer regenerative capabilities for the body. They modulate the immune system which decreases inflammation and promotes healing. In the case of MS which is an autoimmune condition, this can significantly alter the progression of the disease.
Symptoms of MS
As with any autoimmune condition, chronic inflammation is the staple which causes the widespread symptoms. As antibodies attack and damage the protective myelin sheath over nerve fibers, symptoms of pain and muscle weakness begin to appear. The symptoms start as intermittant and progress to chronic. Patients will also experience numbness and tingling the moves up the legs and arms. The muscle weakness and numbness cause balance problems and falling can be a part of a reduced quality of life. Patients also experience brain fog and chronic fatigue.
Treatments for MS
Unfortunately, conventional treatments covered by your insurance can only manage the symptoms of pain and inflammation. These classes of meds suppress the immune system which puts you at risk for infectious illnesses and cancer.
How do stem cells affect MS?
Stem cells are well researched to modulate the immune system, thereby decreasing inflammation. This will facilitate healing and repair of the myelin sheath. Patients begin experiencing less pain in a few months, maybe earlier. Strength and stamina returns as the muscles get stronger. Depending on how advanced your condition is, you may need up to three treatments to get the full benefit of stem cell therapy.
