Multiple Sclerosis is an autoimmune disease that is the result of your immune system incorrectly attacking parts of your central nervous system. In this case, it misidentifies the protective casing, known as ‘myelin’, that surrounds your nerves, and progressively dismantles it over time. This exposes the nerve, allowing it to become damaged, destroyed, or cause an unwanted nervous response, often resulting in persistent pain.
The team of professionals at Cords of Revitalization utilizes the incredible regenerative properties of stem cells to help patients manage and mitigate symptoms of multiple sclerosis. IV stem cell therapy has a promising future, helping to fight back against neurological and musculoskeletal conditions, and restore quality of life to patients.
Symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis
Each person with MS will experience different symptoms with different severities, all depending on the progression and aggressiveness of their condition. Symptoms often affect movement, such as:
- Numbness or weakness – in one or more limbs, typically on one side of your body at a time
- lack of coordination
- Slurred speech
- Tingling or pain in parts of your body
- Problems with sexual, bowel, and bladder function
These factors may increase your risk of developing multiple sclerosis:
- Age – Typically occurs between 20 – 40 years of age. However, it can develop at any age
- Sex – Women are at increased risk
- Family history – parents or siblings with MS, means you are at higher risk of developing the disease.
- Certain infections
- Race – White, Northern European descent, are at highest risk of developing MS
- Vitamin D deficiency
- You suffer from another autoimmune disease (eg. Type 1 diabetes)
How Stem Cells can Help With Multiple Sclerosis
Stem cells can reduce inflammation throughout the body, while also helping to regulate the immune system and prevent further myelin degradation. This makes stem cells a very promising therapy for multiple sclerosis. Studies conducted in 2018 concluded that stem cells, embryonic cells, in particular, have been observed regenerating the myelin sheath surrounding the nerves as well as repairing the damage done to the central nervous system.
The other important benefit provided by stem cell IV therapy is what’s known as immunomodulation. Think of this as a balancing effect, when your immune system is underperforming, it provides support to enable proper function and when your immune system is acting too aggressively, it provides a suppressant effect.
As these cells are introduced into your system, they may help prevent further damage to the protective sheath around peripheral nerves in the body. This can help slow the progression of your condition or allow the body the opportunity to heal damaged nerve tissues.
Stem cells contain powerful regenerative properties along with the ability to differentiate into a range of essential cell types for cellular repair. These cells are what are known as ‘unprogrammed’ cells, meaning they contain all of the necessary components to serve multiple functions, they are simply awaiting a command from other nearby cells.
Working in parallel with a regulated immune system, these new stem cells can be introduced into areas where the nerves have been damaged and provide the building blocks for cellular regeneration to occur! As damaged cells are replaced, your pain and other related symptoms may subside.
