Multiple Sclerosis Symptoms Treated with Stem Cell Therapy — What You Need to Know
Are you struggling with the symptoms of multiple sclerosis? Have you just been diagnosed with MS? A recent breakthrough in regenerative medicine could help you manage your symptoms and improve your quality of life. Stem cell therapy is an alternative option that is giving sufferers much-needed relief.
Alternative Treatment Options for Multiple Sclerosis
According to recent studies, stem cell therapy could deliver the following improvements to your multiple sclerosis symptoms:
Reduced muscle spasms
Better bladder function
Alleviation of muscle pain
Relief from tingling sensations
What Is Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple sclerosis is a disease of the central nervous system (CNS); it occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the CNS. The body’s unnatural immune response results in damage to the myelin sheath — the protective tissue that protects nerve fibers in the brain. Over time, this process causes inflammation of the nerve fibers, and eventually their exposure.
Damaged nerve fibers in the brain caused by MS results in the interruption of signals between the cells and the brain itself. This deterioration eventually leads to symptoms such as loss of coordination, cognitive decline, and reduced motor skills.
What Are the Treatments for Multiple Sclerosis?
Multiple sclerosis affects different people in different ways, which makes it difficult to treat. Some patients report tingling and numbness in the extremities, inhibited movement in the hands, balance problems, muscle pain, and extreme tiredness. But people with the most serious symptoms experience walking difficulties, spasticity of the muscles, vision problems, and dizziness.
Some patients report these symptoms episodically. They can suddenly flare up without warning and then disappear within a few weeks. And some people can be symptom-free for years. Sadly, however, MS is usually a degenerative condition — and there’s currently no cure.
Traditional treatments for MS are usually based on two objectives: suppressing the body’s immune response and alleviating symptoms. In most cases, drugs are prescribed to fight the effects of multiple sclerosis. But research into regenerative therapies for MS continues unabated, and there’s now real hope that stem cell therapy could offer long-term relief from some of the condition’s symptoms.
Can Stem Cell Therapy Relieve MS Symptoms?
Stem cell therapy is being used as a way of alleviating multiple sclerosis symptoms in studies around the world, and the initial results have been very promising. There is evidence that this form of regenerative medicine could be a way of managing the most serious MS symptoms. And while studies continue, there’s genuine cause for optimism.
Stem cells are the building blocks of life; they’re responsible for the creation of most of the body’s cells. When these cells are introduced to the body in a targeted way, they have the potential to regenerate and replace damaged and dead cells — including cells in myelin sheath tissue.
And there’s even more reason to be optimistic. Research suggests that stem cells have a modulating effect on the body’s immune system — which may disrupt or disable the attack on healthy nerve cells.
Research into the efficacy of stem cell therapy as a treatment for MS symptoms continues. And while the initial findings are positive, this regenerative medicine is still considered experimental. As of now, the treatment has not been approved by the FDA. Before you embark on a course of stem cell therapy for multiple sclerosis, you should set realistic outcome expectations.
We stringently screen every patient who turns to Cendant for stem cell therapy. Based on the exact nature of a patient’s multiple sclerosis symptoms, we develop a highly personalized treatment program — but only after we’ve established the individual’s suitability for treatment.
Please see the comments and personal video testimonies on our website to see our patients’ experience and their personal journey to wellness with Cendant.
