STEM CELL RESEARCH HELPS MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS PATIENT IMPROVE HER QUALITY OF LIFE

Release date: 12/11/2009

A 46 year old woman is reporting amazing improvements in her multiple sclerosis (MS) after receiving adult stem cell treatment.

Stem Cell Research Leads To Treatment For MS

A 46 year old woman is reporting amazing improvements in her multiple sclerosis (MS) after receiving adult stem cell treatment.  Kang Sook Park, who has had MS for more than 20 years is the latest multiple sclerosis patient to improve her quality of life following research that led to the therapy using only adult stem cells.

Before stem cell treatment For Multiple Sclerosis:

  1. Vision Loss- optic neuritis,  vision blurry, lost ability to read
  2. Loss of  motion and feelings in legs and arms- 
  3. Depression - like many MS patients, the loss of her physical abilities sometimes depressed her
  4. Loss of Independence- couldn't get around by herself

 

 

After stem cell therapy:

  1. Regained vision-  vision became clearer, can read again
  2. EMG showed improved scores in her upper and lower limbs- her arms and legs
  3. Feels Happier Due to her physical changes
  4. Independent again-  doesn't need help getting around

From the stem cell news story:

 

Prior to stem cell treatment, Park suffered from Optic Neuritis -- a common symptom of MS. Some of the symptoms of Optic Neuritis include double vision, vision loss, and uncontrollable rapid eye movements. She was not able to recognize any writing due to her vision loss. After six months of receiving stem cell therapy, Park experienced phenomenal changes. Her vision improved drastically -- she was able to read. Furthermore, it also became possible for her to move her legs using her own muscular strength.

 

"My legs felt like hollow logs. They were so numb and stiff. However, after receiving stem cell treatment, I can actually feel my legs. I can also tell the difference in cold and warm temperatures. Stem cell therapy brought incredible changes to my physical condition," stated Kang Sook Park.

 

Park also added, "Receiving stem cell turned my life around. I feel like I am reborn. The fact that I am in this condition brings me new joy. I love the fact that I no longer need anyone's help to get from place to place. I would like to share my experience to others who may have this rare disease. I want to let others know that they can find hope through stem cell treatment, just the way I did."

 

Park's doctor reported EMG findings before and after the stem cell treatment. "Patients who have an uncommon disease such as MS rarely show improvement or are completely cured. EMG results showed that Park's movement increased both in upper and lower limbs. Reduction in latency suggests that demyelination was also improved. It is extremely difficult for MS patients to use their own strength to even make small movements in the arms or legs. These changes in Park were possible through stem cell therapy."

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MS SUFFERER WALKS AFTER STEM CELL TREATMENT

“Australian physicians used a new stem cell therapy to essentially "reset" the immune system of a patient with multiple sclerosis, allowing him to walk again.  In the procedure, physicians first removed the stem cells from the patient's bone marrow and then eradicated his immune cells with chemicals. The stem cells were then planted back in the body, restoring a healthy immune system. And the physicians involved say it appears to have worked a cure.”

An Australian man who was confined to a wheelchair by multiple sclerosis has made a remarkable recovery after receiving a groundbreaking stem cell treatment.

In results reported in the Lancet, some patients in the trial were left free from seizures and better able to walk after the treatment. [1]

New Kids on the Stem Cell Block

This is another great stem cell success story from an adult stem cell company with offices in Asia and the USA; though I believe the stem cell treatments always take place in Asia.  Last month, we reported that they used their stem cell research to help Chloe Sohl, a young American who was suffering from hearing loss.  Chloe was treated with her own adult stem cells.

And before that, they also helped John Cullison with his arthritis.   This new player in the stem cell treatment business seems to be doing all the right things-- helping people improve the quality of their lives.

Not Available in the United States

We have covered dozens of MS patients who have improved following stem cell treatment for their multiple sclerosis.  Unfortunately, all of them have had to leave the United States to do so.  The United States offers MS patients expensive drugs that don't work.  The reason these MS patients go to Costa Rica, China, Germany, Israel and other countries for adult stem cell treatment is the United States has nothing to help and nothing to offer them. Why can't we offer these patients a (stem cell) treatment with zero side effects and a good chance of helping them improve their lives?  Only the faceless beaurocrats at the FDA and close minded doctors who refuse to see the growing evidence that adult stem cells are a valid treatment can answer that question.

Stem cells could be used to treat multiple sclerosis

NORMAND HOULE’s EXPERIENCE

Normand received Repair Stem Cell treatment for Multiple Sclerosis from an RSCI approved doctor who is also the Deputy Chairman of our Science Advisory Board.  Here is Normand’s experience unedited:

 

“It was a great experience.  There were 4 people from the clinic in Israel, 2 people from the lab, 1 nurse and the CFO. It was great to have them, very reassuring for me especially the nurse.  Everything went well except for the terrible headache but I think it’s normal.  I spend 4 days at the hospital. They did the spinal tap and they inject me 3ml of liquid that contains approximately 16 million cells.

 

The people at the hospital were great and good treatment except for the food in the hospital but I think it’s normal we have the same problem elsewhere.  I never felt that I was a medical tourist for them.  Now I’m waiting for the improvement.”

…STEM CELLS KICK HODGKINS LYMPHOMA’S BUTT!

 

In 2003, 13 year-old Kirk Lee was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma, a disease that affects the body’s lymph nodes.  Kirk Lee first noticed something was wrong when he detected a knot on his neck. His grandmother Carolyn Lee said he was taken to the hospital and consequently diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma. He was immediately transported to Jackson for surgery to remove tissue from his lungs and undergo chemotherapy.

After receiving radiation, chemotherapy and some experimental treatment in Jackson, Lee still had third-stage lymphoma, meaning the disease was in his abdomen and his neck. (1)  When neither of those treatments was successful, he was taken for stem cell transplant therapy.

That stem cell treatment put his illness into remission.

STEM CELL TREATMENTS FOR CEREBRAL PALSY BEGIN IN SINGAPORE

Release date: 12/11/2009

A young girl with cerebral palsy is showing remarkable improvement after receiving her own cord blood stem cells which were saved at birth from her umbilical cord.

 

Singapore has become the latest country to utilize Repair Stem Cells to help patients with neurological illnesses.  A young girl with cerebral palsy is showing improvement after receiving her own cord blood stem cells which were saved at birth from her umbilical cord.  Georgia Conn, 2 1/2 years old, is believed to be the first child treated in Singapore with her own stem cells. 

Georgia- First Child in Singapore to Receive Adult Stem Cell Treatment

 

Georgia, first child in Singapore to be helped by stem cell research for cerebral palsy.

Stem Cell Treatment Repairs Brain - No Side Effects

Before the stem cell treatment, due to a brain injury at birth, Georgia would suffer more than 50 seizures per day.  Now, thanks to the injection of her own stem cells, Georgia suffers fewer seizures, has more muscle strength and can sit more than a hour without pain. 

From the stem cell news article:

Mrs. Conn, who had an easy pregnancy, said that they signed up to bank cord blood with private blood bank CordLife a week before Georgia was born.  They never thought they would have to use it.  "It took us over 18 months and an enormous amount of research to find information about the potential for using stem cells, if any, and especially using a child's own cord blood to help children with cerebral palsy," said Mrs. Conn.

Georgia was treated by Singapore neurosurgeon and stem cell pioneer, Dr. Keith Goh.  Dr. Goh says “Conventional treatment can improve the muscle tone of the limbs, but it does not solve the root problem of damage in the brain, which controls the body's motor functions.  Injecting cord blood into the patient is believed to result in a significant portion of stem cells going to the brain to repair the damaged neurons."

Stem Cell Therapy for All - Whether You Saved the Cord Blood Stem Cells or Not

This stem cell treatment is also available in the United States at Duke University where doctors are treating cerebral palsy kids, but only for the children whose parents have stored their own cord blood at birth.  See more on this stem cell research here and here

However, if your child has cerebral palsy, and you didn't save his/her cord blood at birth, that does not disqualify your child from stem cell therapy!  Many children and adults with CP have improved using their own adult stem cells taken from their bone marrow  and from the use of donated cord blood from other children.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

RESEARCH STUDY SHOWS ADULT STEM CELLS HELP HEART ATTACK VICTIMS

Release date: 12/13/2009

A new stem cell research study shows that giving adult stem cells to a patient who had suffered a heart attack is more effective than giving a patient nothing following a heart attack.  

A Shocker? Adult Stem Cells Help Heart Attack Patients

A new stem cell research study shows that giving adult stem cells to a patient who had suffered a heart attack is more effective than giving a patient nothing following a heart attack.  Dr. Joshua Hare, of the University of Miami, along with 10 other universities completed a study that shouldn't surprise any readers of this blog. 

Research Clinical Trial Details:

The study enrolled 53 patients who had suffered a heart attack within 10 days.  75% of these heart attack patients received infusions of adult stem cells.   25% of the heart attack patients received a placebo (ie. nothing). 

Unsurprisingly, the 75% who received the stem cell therapy are now faring better than the patients who didn't receive anything.  All patients were tested using an MRI and echocardiogram.

From the stem cell news article:

After six months, patients who received the adult stem cells were four times as likely to have improved overall condition, were able to pump more blood with each heartbeat than untreated patients, had only one-quarter as many dangerous heart arrhythmias, and suffered no toxicity or other serious adverse side effects from the treatment.

Echocardiograms showed patients had improved heart function, particularly in those patients with large amounts of cardiac damage. Patients also have improvements in lung function.


Why? Emergency signals sent out by wounded heart tissue attract help from stem cells.
It's probable that the stronger signal from the more damaged hearts attracted more of the stem cells to the site of injury, suggest Cleveland Clinic researchers Marc S. Penn, MD, PhD, and colleagues in an editorial accompanying the Hare report in the Dec. 8 issue of the Journal of the American College of Cardiology.

Dr. Joshua Hare, Led the Research Study Using Stem Cell Therapy


Dr. Joshua Hare Led A Research Study Showing Adult Stem Cells Help Heart Attack Patients

Stem Cell Therapy Available In United States in 2020?

While this is a promising stem cell research study, if you are thinking this may help heart disease patients in the United States in the near future, you are sadly mistaken.  This was only a Phase 1 study.  Phase 2 and Phase 3 studies must still be completed and approved by the snails at the FDA and then this was only a trial for patients who had a heart attack within the last 10 days (before receiving the stem cells).  

What if you had a heart attack 5 years ago and now suffer from congestive heart failure?  Well, there are still congestive heart failure trials going on, but don't expect anything in the United States for at least 5 more years.   That is the reason more and more Americans are leaving the comforts of the United States. 

Nonetheless, this is a nice addition to the overwhelming evidence that adult stem cells can help heart disease patients.  -Congestive heart failure, recent heart attacks, coronary artery disease- all have been shown to be helped by stem cell therapy using adult stem cells.  So if you aren't convinced yet that adult stem cells can help heart disease, I'm not quite sure what else I can do. 

Is Stem Cell Therapy A Cure For Heart Disease?

No, I'm not saying it is a 100% cure.  I'm not saying it works in every case of heart disease.  But, I am saying that giving adult stem cells has no side effects AND there is a good chance that it will help improve a heart patient's quality of life.  I don't see any reason why it shouldn't be given to all heart patients.  To not give them something that could save their life is essentially sentencing them to death. 

When will the FDA wake up and make stem cell treatment available to the general population? Until they do, they are costing people their lives by doing nothing.

ONH PATIENT SEES SNOW FOR FIRST TIME AFTER STEM CELL TREATMENT

Are you or a loved one interested in receiving stem cell treatment? For free treatment information, please fill out our treatment form or email me don@repairstemcells.org and put THERAPY in the subject box.

 

Stem Cell Research Benefits Optic Nerve Hypoplasia Patient

Another young girl with optic nerve hypoplasia is reporting improvements in her vision after receiving stem cell treatment.  Lilli Mann, 8, from North Dakota is now seeing things she has never seen before after getting stem cell research in China using cord blood stem cells.

The Only Viable Treatment for ONH

Lilli is the latest child to show improvements in her vision following the therapy and research Optic nerve hypoplasia or ONH is a genetic condition in which the optic nerve fails to develop leaving the patient blind or with very limited vision.  Until adult stem cells, there was no way to help these patients.   Adult Stem Cell treatment is the first viable therapy for this condition as many children have proved.

Before Receiving Adult Stem Cells

 

  1. Could Only See Large Letters From 15 cm away on Eye Exam
  2. Could Only Listen To TV
  3. Never Saw Snow

After The Stem Cell Treatment

  1. Now Can See Large Letters From 60 cm away on Eye Exam -  Quadruple Improvement!
  2. Can Now Watch TV
  3. Saw snow for the first time as well as countless other things she never had the opportunity to see

 

From the stem cell news story:
Lilli, born with optic nerve hypoplasia, an incurable disease which occurs while in the womb, traveled to Asia with her mother in September to receive stem cell injections said to repair damaged nerve tissue. Although the 25-day visit was difficult and full of treatments and therapies brand new to Lilli, for the Manns the results are thrilling.

Lilli was particularly thrilled to be able to read large print. During an eye test, Christi indicated doctors determined Lilli was seeing large letters from 60 centimeters away, when at home, prior to the treatment, she was seeing them at 15 centimeters away.

Now that she has returned to Wahpeton, Lilli's improved range of vision continues at home and in the classroom. She's pointed out to her parents' cars parked an average of two parking lots away. Christi said she's even been able to identify the car's color.

In school, Lilli is able to participate in games of kickball in gym class, where they use a purple ball she's able to identify.

 

Stem cells are meant to work as an "internal repair system" that mature between six and nine months of being injected. While the Manns hope for improvement beyond what Lilli has gone through to date, she'll always maintain what advances she's made because of her visit to Asia.

Christi first began to see a change in Lilli during outings to the mall being built across the street from the hospital.  "We went there everyday to get out and do something," Christi said. "She'd find things on the wall and ask what they were."

Quality of Life Improvements From Adult Stem Cells

Another quality of life improvement thanks to adult stem cells.  Since the therapy was made available, many youngsters like Macie Morse, the young girl from Colorado with ONH who can now drive after the stem cell treatment and Lawrence Brown, a young man from Texas who also has improved greatly.

INFERTILITY HELPED BY STEM CELL TREATMENT

Infertility Solved Through Adult Stem Cell Therapy

A woman who couldn't have a child due to infertility problems is now pregnant after stem cell therapy in which she had her own adult stem cells implanted in her womb for endometrium regeneration

Endometrium Growth Enabled By Stem Cells

Poonam, age 31, of Kutch, India, had no endometrium growth and thus was unable to have children, even through In Vitro Fertilization (IVF).  Surrogate mothering was suggested, but Poonam wanted to give birth to a baby herself. 

Two doctors of infertility claim that Poonam is the first successful case of pregnancy conceived through stem cell therapy for endometrium generation, and we have no evidence to the contrary.

 

"This pregnancy promises a breakthrough in treating women who suffer infertility due to poor endometrium growth. In fact, majority of women who are forced to opt for surrogacy suffer from this problem and will be able to avoid hiring a surrogate," says Dr Nagori.

 

Process of Stem Cell Treatment For Infertility:

  1. Bone Marrow Was Removed And Sent To A Lab Where Adult Stem Cells Were Grown
  2. Uterus lining of Poonam was cleaned up and stem cells transplanted into her uterine cavity under the guidance of sonography.
  3. We had to give her estrogen to give the right push to stem cells to generate into endometrium.


"In three months time, Poonam had got a 6 mm lining which was good enough to proceed with IVF," says her doctor.

"This treatment would give boost to a lot of women who do not want surrogacy and want to experience childbirth. In many cases, endometrium fails to grow if there have been cleaning up of the uterus too often or due to chronic infections," says her other doctor.

 

No Embryonic Stem Cells Involved!

Please note that only Repair Stem Cells were used.  Embryonic stem cells were not involved in any way in this therapy. 

 

 

 

 

RSCI EPILOGUE:

Thank you for reading the Repair Stem Cell Institute’s Newsletter!  We want to bring you up to date on the new improved stem cell treatments that are available now

 

In 2009, the Repair Stem Cell Institute helped thousands to learn about the safe and effective stem cell treatments available to them. Many chose stem cell treatments that the Institute recommended, and perhaps two-thirds of them are well on their way to an improved quality of life.   

Not only are dozens and dozens of new stem cell protocols in use today which were not being used a year ago, but more information is also now available. As an example, for the first time in stem cell history, scientific data proving the miraculous results the world’s first stem cell company has achieved for 400+ no-option cardiovascular patients will be available early in 2010, and the Institute will be the first to have the summary data along with a half-dozen abstracts of the peer reviewed published papers.    

Parkinson’s treatments, which have been limited due to difficulty of getting the stem cells to the affected portion of the brain, will see new protocols in early 2010 which will use catheters to implant those stem cells where they will be most beneficial.  This protocol may apply to stroke and PPMS patients also. 

Spinal Cord and Cerebral Palsy patients now have choices much closer to North America than before, while those with Muscular Skeletal problems such as osteoarthritis and knee problems can be treated in North America. 

The Institute has become an all-in-one resource for widespread Repair Stem Cell information, and patient education, and we look forward to helping you. There is no cost or obligation to you for our services. 

If you are interested in learning more about how Stem Cells can better help you or a loved one in 2010, click here.  We’ll start the information flow to you within less than 24 hours.

Jump on board for a freewheeling ride that will leave you armed and ready for those who call you an anti-science clod for opposing destruction of human embryos for stem cell research. The NIH is about to release new guidelines on broader federal funding for embryonic stem cell research. That will touch off another round of false hype about “hope” and “cures” from embryo-destructive research.

HiddenCauses100H.jpgHidden Causes of Heart Attack and Stroke

 

When the author became aware that 50% of all heart attacks had been happening  to people with so called,  normal cholesterol, he began a five year research and writing project to identify other hidden factors that were unsuspectedly destroying lives.
