Before going deep into the technicalities associated with the disorder; we, as a team of Advancells, would like to assure you that, you are not alone on your journey, full of struggle and emotional turmoil. There are many people who are fighting with this mighty disease and almost every one of them might have experienced the same trauma. Many of the patients already have had very good life surrounded by children, wonderful grandchildren and people who love them. In spite of which they feel an emptiness, they feel that suddenly life has snatched away their freedom from them! Freedom to travel, laugh, play, etc. Once reality has been suddenly transformed into a dream! A dream that they see so unlikely as fulfilling for the rest of their life! However, the team of Advancells has always been a tremendous source of support for many of them. After speaking with our doctors and taking Stem Cell Therapy people with ALS disease have started managing the disease with courage. Our team’s experience with so many cases means that, we understand completely what you are going through.
One of our patients, Mr. Satish ( Name Changed for Privacy) from Oslo, Norway had a similar story. He had been diagnosed with ALS in late summer and by end of 2013 at the age 70. However, the disease first started showing symptoms in late 2011. He was stumbling and tripping due to floppy right foot, was unable to speak & move and was in progressive stages of the disease. Although the journey was long with very wrong turns, but in the end, all that was left on the table was ALS. His son Mr. Shahid spent many hours on internet searching for information on ALS and possible treatment options available for ALS. Mr. Shahid finally discovered the Advancells as the right platform for stem cell treatment.
Satish has undergone Autologous stem cell treatment at Advancells and found it to be reassuring treatment option with minimum pain and good recovery. With our dedicated team, he underwent physiotherapy and on time follow up programs. Within 6 month post treatment, satish reported complete stoppage of the progression.
Stem cells are the mother cells of the body, capable to give rise to many cells. Adult stem cells are present in the adult mature organs. They have been isolated from body’s own parts such as Bone Marrow and Adipose Tissue.
Thus many patients like Mr. Satish recommend stem cell treatment as the best resource to slow down or stop the progression of ALS. After all ALS can limit your activity, but it can never take away the love of your family and friends.
