A new alternative way to help manage the symptoms of ALS.
With Stemedix Regenerative Therapy, your rebuilding process can begin.
Although stem cell therapy for ALS therapy is not a cure, some symptom improvements have been observed:
Repair nerve damage
Improvement in motor skills
Increases in energy and vigor
Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) is a muscle condition within the muscular dystrophy spectrum. Commonly known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, this condition primarily attacks the brain and nerve cells which control both voluntary and involuntary muscle movement. Oftentimes, symptoms of the condition don’t appear until the patient is 50 years or older. These may include:
- Muscle cramps
- Spasticity (stiffness or tightness of muscles)
As the disease progresses, difficulty speaking and swallowing, weight loss, and troubled breathing may ensue.
While there is currently no cure for ALS, today’s treatments include medications used to control symptoms and slow disease progression. One ALS medication is used to reduce the levels of the chemical messenger in the brain, glutamate, which is typically higher in individuals with ALS. Another common drug can control the decline in daily functioning. With that being said, these medications are linked to their own side effects.
Regenerative Medicine Therapy for ALS
For chronic disorders like ALS, medical experts are working diligently to find new solutions to improve patients’ chances of long-term health. Regenerative medicine therapy is one option which is emerging as a promising alternative or addition to traditional treatments. In particular, stem cell therapy, which employs the use of adipose (fat) or umbilical cord derived stem cells, holds potential for increasing quality of life in conditions for which there is no cure.
The use of stem cells represents a breakthrough in regenerative medicine which can be used to help the body’s natural repair kit work more effectively. These powerful cells have the ability to differentiate into various types of tissues. Thus, when they are inserted into the bloodstream, they can encourage the regeneration of nerve and brain pathways which become compromised in ALS and similar conditions. Stem cell therapy also appears to be safe and generally well-tolerated.
Although not a cure, regenerative medicine therapy can yield results such as decreased disease progression, nerve damage repair, improvement in motor skills, and increases in energy and vigor. The use of stem cells and other regenerative treatments are therefore worthwhile alternatives for making a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals with chronic or progressive conditions.
