Stem Cell Therapy Helps Man With MS Walk Again

The extraordinary power and promise of stem cell therapy is on display again. Its mounting record of success in all areas of medicine excites me for my patients’ sake. Marvelous results from stem cell therapy, such as restoring vision, treating heart failure and overcoming multiple sclerosis, will only help to build confidence in the successful work we’ve been doing with stem cell therapy at New Jersey Pain Care Specialists. We’ve become expert at using stem cell therapy to repair the damage from conditions such as degenerative disc disease, desiccated discs, spinal stenosis, facet arthrosis, sacroiliac joint syndrome, osteoarthritis of any joint, and sports or overuse injuries.

Here’s a story from the Mirror newspaper in England about a multiple sclerosis sufferer named Eric who lost the use of his legs and right hand after he was diagnosed about five years ago.

Because Britain’s public healthcare program  doesn’t pay for stem cell therapy, Eric’s family raised enough money to fund hematopoietic stesm cell transplantation treatment overseas. Hematopoietic stem cells are harvested from the bone marrow.

Eric and his wife travelled to the Mexico where, after going through preparation and tests to ensure he was fit enough, the hematopoietic stem cells were transfused into his bloodstream to replace destroyed tissue. Just a week after returning home a month later, Eric was able to walk again. “I wasn’t expecting this level of success,” he said. “To get that result so quickly has been amazing.

“If it just stopped the progression that would have been enough. People really need to know about stem cell therapy. I am living proof it works. I am absolutely delighted with the results and now say that I used to have MS.”

He must now have a follow-up series of five infusions which will act as maintenance for the transplant: “I am taking it one day at a time, but it is great to know I am getting my independence back. I would say to other people that the earlier you go, the better effect the treatment has. I was diagnosed in 2011 and believe that if I had gone for the treatment straight away I would never have had to stop working.”

Eric’s wife added: “It is only the beginning of a long journey, but we are delighted with the results so far.

His family now plans to raise money for other MS sufferers to have the stem cell therapy abroad.
