Adult Stem Cells are Curing Multiple Sclerosis Patients

Most people think there is no cure for Multiple Sclerosis. However, a doctor in Israel has been having success treating patients using their own stem cells taken from their bone marrow.

Multiple Sclerosis is a disease in which the patient's own immune system attacks the nervous system and can lead to disability, blindness and sometimes paralysis. In Tel Aviv, doctors have invented a procedure in which stem cells are extracted from a Multiple Sclerosis patient's bone marrow and then multiplied and then implant them back into the patient.

The researchers say they have tried this procedure on around 25 MS patients and say that the stem cells can repair damage done to the cells if done early enough. They believe the key is to do the stem cell treatment as early as possible before permanent damage is done.

Louise Zylstra from Canada was one of the patients treated with her own stem cells. Zylstra, a golf pro, was diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis in 2007. By early 2008, Zylstra could no longer play a round of golf and had difficulty walking short distances.

Zylstra suffered from the primary progressive form of MS, and her doctors told her she would have to be using a wheelchair within 2 years.

Zylstra heard about the stem cell treatment in Israel. Knowing that she was using her own stem cells and therefore there no side effects, Zylstra made the journey to Israel and was treated.

Fast forward 8 months, Zylstra is now back on the golf course again. She says she has made a 180 degree turn and the difference is like "night and day." Her doctors say the amazing turnaround would have been unlikely without the stem cell treatment. Her doctors in Canada were so impressed that they would like to make the treatment available in Canada to treat other MS patients as well.

Adult Stem Cells are helping more and more people. Stories like Louise's give Multiple Sclerosis patients hope. Adult Stem Cells are the future of medicine and the future is now.

The Repair Stem Cell Institute www.repairstemcells.org is a public-service company formed to educate, teach, and help patients with chronic diseases and conditions to find qualified doctors who provide Adult Stem Cell therapy to improve the patient's quality of life.

The Repair Stem Cell Institute website has a list of diseases and injuries that are now being treated with adult stem cells. The site also tells the reader where and how to seek out that particular stem cell treatment.
