Treatment – Today!
Used in conjunction with traditional treatments, or other therapies offered like hyperbaric oxygen therapy, it can potentially improve your chances of long-term health.
Treatment is generally supportive as there are no known cures for ALS.
A medication known as riluzole can help slow the progression of symptoms, but the disease will continue to assert itself despite this treatment.
Other medications, such as baclofen for muscle spasms and amitriptyline for excess saliva, can help to control some of the symptoms caused by the lack of muscle control. Rehabilitation, physical therapy, and other exercises are also important to maintain as much muscle strength and flexibility as possible.
Improvements have been seen in the following symptoms after treatment.
- Decrease progression
of the disease
- Increases energy and vigor
- Increase the ability to
perform daily tasks
- Enhanced mood
- Improve chances of
- Improvement in motor skills
- Encourage regeneration

- Encourage regeneration
of brain pathways.
ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is one of the muscle conditions in the muscular dystrophy spectrum. This disease primarily attacks the brain and nerves cells that control voluntary muscle movement, primarily skeletal muscles.
As the condition progresses, patients lose more and more control over their muscles until they are completely debilitated. ALS reaches its crescendo when the muscles of the chest are affected, making it difficult to breathe. No specific known cause is responsible for ALS, but those who have family members with the disease are at higher risk.
Fortunately, advances in stem cell therapy can benefit those who suffer from ALS. Stem cells are the progenitor cells of the body. This means that they are the first cells, the ones that differentiate into various tissue that makes up the body. By inserting stem cells into the blood stream, you can encourage the regeneration of nerve and brain pathways that are damaged in the course of ALS.
Stem cell therapy for ALS can be an alternative to the other methods of ALS treatment. Using in conjunction with traditional treatments, or other therapies offered like hyperbaric oxygen therapy, it can potentially improve your chances of long-term health. If you want to try the latest technological advancement to counter your ALS, adult stem cell treatment is a viable option for you.
Symptoms of ALS do not usually appear until after a patient passes 50 years of age, and when the symptoms are noticeable, the treatment options are generally not very effective. Muscle cramps, weakness, and contractions are some of the early signs of the disease.
As it progresses, you may have trouble swallowing, difficulty talking, or become unable to hold your head up. Weight loss and difficulty breathing are further symptoms of the condition that do not tend to appear until it is well advanced. However, not every muscle cramp means ALS is present, but if you have chronic muscle issues, it is recommended that you have a thorough medical screening for ALS.

Rehabilitation, physical therapy, and other exercises are also important to maintain as much muscle strength and flexibility as possible. Problems with gagging and choking are often seen with ALS, and a permanent tube may be inserted into the stomach for feeding.
Other MS Treatments vs Stem Cell
Current MS treatments can reduce the severity of symptoms by blocking autoimmune responses against the myelin sheath. They do not repair the neural cell damage that has already occurred.
These treatments can also cause serious side effects, and over time, can stop working for certain patients.
Stem cell therapy can slow down the progression of MS by neutralizing (or even reversing) the damage caused to the myelin sheath.
Past treatments have shown that stem cells not only have the potential to regenerate lost or damaged myelin sheath tissues, but also have the ability to modulate the immune system, temporarily disabling the abnormal
