ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), also known as Motor Neuron Disease (MND), is a neurodegenerative disease that worsens progressively. It affects the brain’s nerve cells and the spinal cord. When the motor neuron cells that link the brain with the spinal cord and the body muscles begin to degenerate, it can lead to the death of these cells. Anyone suffering from this disease will cease to have any muscle movements when the motor neurons are destroyed, leading to total paralysis in the patient.
Difficulty walking or doing your normal daily activities
Tripping and falling
Weakness in your leg, feet or ankles
Hand weakness or clumsiness
Slurred speech or trouble swallowing
Muscle cramps and twitching in your arms, shoulders and tongue
Difficulty holding your head up or keeping good posture
ALS often starts in the hands, feet or limbs, and then spreads to other parts of your body. As the disease advances and nerve cells are destroyed, your muscles progressively weaken. This eventually affects chewing, swallowing, speaking and breathing.
Until the most recent decades, ALS can only be treated by medications and physical therapy. Rilutek (riluzole) halts any further damage to the nerve cells that glutamate stirs up. Motor movements and the patient’s survival improve with this drug. For stiffness in the throat and limbs, Baclofen is prescribed. To retard muscle atrophy, nutritional supplements can be given. If the patient is depressed, antidepressants can be given. Physical therapy aids in enhancing blood circulation and prolonging the use of muscles at the onset of ALS. While these traditional treatments can help manage ALS to some degree, they often bring unwanted side effects and high costs.
Nowadays, new advanced stem cell treatment such as Stem Cell Therapy Plus is giving new hope to ALS patients.
Stem cells are those cells that can easily become the cells of different organs where their need arises. This means that stem cells can evolve into cells of the nervous system, brain, immune system and other organ & tissues and so to treat degenerative diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis. Stem Cell Therapy is at the heart of a new field of science and medicine called regenerative medicine.
Since stem cells have the unique ability to renew themselves and give birth to generations of cells with different degrees of differentiation, the use of stem cell therapy becomes very encouraging and promising for those who suffer with debilitating diseases. The stem cells can also replace damaged cells in different body parts without any risk of being rejected and without causing any side effects.
Anecdotal evidence shows that the stem cells from Stem Cell Therapy Plus can help retard the aggressive progression of ALS symptoms and create a unique environment fit for cells to migrate from other body organs to begin the healing process. The stem cells can also play a supporting role in extending the life of motor neurons. These stem cells can differentiate into cells that help support functioning motor neurons, they can also regenerate healthy motor neurons by repairing or replacing damaged neurons and thus promoting improvement in impaired functions.
Unlike traditional Stem Cell Therapy which can only be applied via injection in the selective hospitals/ clinics, Stem Cell Therapy Plus delivers stem cells through high-tech bio-active softgel capsules which can be shipped in secure packages and delivered right to your home. The lyophilized (freeze-dried) method employed in softgel capsules produces stem cells which remain biologically active (a proven technique for gently conserving biological substances) without damaging the effectiveness of the valuable, big, bio-active matter. Being enteric coated, softgel capsules by-pass the stomach and dissolve in the small intestine whereby the stem cells and other active ingredients are fully absorbed by the body. Therefore, to receive the results and benefits of Stem Cell Therapy Plus, all you need to do is to take 1 – 3 softgel capsules a day at the comfort of your own home.
