Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) or Gehrig’s Disease 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.
Though at the onset of Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, its symptoms may be ignored, yet as it progresses, the following symptoms will be clearly seen:
Weakness of muscles in the arms, hands, legs and speech
Difficulty breathing and swallowing
Muscular twitches, muscle cramping in the hands and feet
Reduced use of arms and legs due to obvious impairment
Slurred speech and difficulty in audibility
Tripping over carpets, dropping things
Unusual exhaustion felt in the arms and legs
Uncontrollable bouts of laughter or crying
At first, the hands and feet may depict difficulty, as with walking, lifting things or doing daily things like dressing, buttoning clothes and washing. As the muscles begin to atrophy, paralysis sets in and spreads to the trunk. The patient exhibits slurred speech, leading to difficulty in swallowing, chewing, speaking and breathing. When his breathing is affected, he will need to be put on the ventilator to remain alive.
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.
Nowadays, aside from traditional medication and physical treatment for ALS, advanced research and treatment such as Stem Cell Therapy Plus is giving new hope to ALS patients. Anecdotal evidence shows that the usage of Stem Cell Therapy Plus retards the aggressive progression of ALS symptoms and creates a unique environment fit for cells to migrate from other body organs to begin the healing process. Stem Cells provided by Stem Cell Therapy Plus 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 expedite overall recovery.
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 brain, heart, muscle, organ, tissue or cartilage and so to treat many complex diseases such as Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Diabetes, Rheumatoid Arthritis, etc. 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 this therapy becomes extremely encouraging and promising for those who suffer with debilitating diseases. They also replace damaged cells in different body parts without any risk of being rejected and without causing any side effects.
Anecdotal evidence shows Stem Cell Therapy Plus can 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. Besides, mesenchymal stem cells introduced by Stem Cell Therapy Plus support neuron-regeneration, replace damaged neurons and spur functional recovery. In this treatment nervous system encourage stem cells to develop Glial cells which support and protect functioning neurons, slowing down the progress of ALS disease. Neural precursor cells then start receiving signals to become new motor neurons and nervous system starts working properly.
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.
