Neurologic Issues

ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis)

ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord specifically in the motor neurons, which innervate the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to the complete wasting away of the muscles. When the motor neurons die, the ability of the brain to control muscle movement is lost because the voluntary (muscle that is controlled by your will) muscles are affected. People with ALS may lose the ability to speak, eat, move and breathe due to this fact.

Regenerative Cells secrete anti-inflammatory, antifibrotic (decrease scar tissue), immunomodulatory (decrease autoimmune response), and regenerative (rebuild tissue) molecules that stimulate the repair and regeneration of inflamed or damaged tissues. These are the reasons why we recommend this therapy for those suffering with this condition.

Functional Medicine looks at the root cause of disease and is typically incorporated in all of our chronic disease protocols. Typically, we give recommendation on specific nutrients based on blood work, genetic testing, heavy metal/mineral testing, etc. Once we repair, rebuild, and improve symptoms, we want to make sure that whatever may have instigated the issue to start is gone and no longer aggravating the system so there is not relapse later.

Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is a chronic and progressively debilitating disease in which the immune system wears down the protective myelin sheath that wraps around the nerves. The damage to the myelin does not allow for communication from the brain to whatever nerves are involved. Nerve damage is typically seen through MRI, looking for the plaque buildups in the brain, spinal cord, or optic nerves. Symptoms include balance, motor problems (muscle wasting), visual issues, and cognitive problems.

In those with Multiple Sclerosis the T-cells penetrate the brain and react agianst the myelin sheath because their activity is unregulated (autoimmune disorder). Usually, the T-cells are regulated by what are called T regulatory cells (Tregs). Umbilical Cord Mescenchymal Stem Cells (UC-MSC) have shown the ability to stimulate the presence of Tregs and would therefore help control T-cell activity that is unregulated and attacking the myelin sheath. In a recent study UC-MCS were used in those suffering from MS and they showed an increase in the number of Tregs among resting T-cells in these patients and restoration of the regulatory activity of the Tregs.

What does that mean?

It means that these cells have shown the ability to stop or decrease the progression of this disease.

Parkinson’s Disease

Parkinson’s Disease is a neurodegenerative disorder that affects the dopamine-producing neurons in the brain that are called the substantia nigra. Symptoms usually develop over a number of years. The symptoms with Parkinsons’s are often different between individuals due to the variability of the disease. Symptoms typically include pill rolling tremors of the hands with other forms possible as well, limb rigidity, balance and walking problems, and bradykinesia (slower than normal movements).

Stroke Rehab

Strokes happen when blood flow to an area of the brain is stopped. With blood flow stopped, the brain cells are then deprived of oxygen and begin to die. The symptoms that accompany a person after a stroke can vary depending on what part of the brain the stroke occurred in and how many brain cells were damaged. Some people may recover completely, but typically more than two thirds of survivors have some type of disability. For example, someone who had a small stroke may only have minor problems such as temporary weakness of an arm or leg. People who have larger strokes may be permanently paralyzed on one side of their body or lose their ability to speak.

These are the reasons why we recommend this therapy for those suffering with this condition. The caveat being that the longer someone has had their symptoms, usually the harder it is for those areas to heal.
