Stem Cell Treatment For ALS or Lou Gehrig’s Disease Proven Effective

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), often called “Lou Gehrig’s Disease,” is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. As motor neurons degenerate, they can no longer send the impulses to the muscle fibers that would usually result in muscle movement. Approximately 5,600 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with ALS each year. The incidence of ALS is two per 100,000 people, and it is estimated that as many as 30,000 Americans may have Lou Gehrig’s Disease.

At this time there is no treatment to control ALS except FDA approved Riluzole, which somewhat slows the progression of the illness.

Recent research has shown that autologous stem cell therapy can effectively improve the condition of patients who are suffering from ALS. From a study in Thailand, from the use electroneuromyography, nine out of thirteen patients shown significant improvements. Brian Dardzinski, Returning Hope’s CEO, was excited about the result of this trial which proves the efficacy of stem cell treatment against ALS.

  1. As a sign of gratitude for how my husband was saved from the dreaded ALS, i decided to reach out to those still suffering from this.
    My husband was diagnosed of ALS in 2013 and it was really tough and heartbreaking for me because he was my all and the symptoms were terrible, he had difficulty swallowing, all his joints were dead and that made him immobile to mention but a few. we tried various therapies prescribed by our neurologist but none could cure him. I searched for a cure and i saw a testimony by someone who was cured and he left the contact of the doctor who had the cure in 2015. I never imagined ALS has a cure not until i contacted him and he assured me my husband will be fine. I got the herbal medication he recommended and my husband used it and in three months he was fully okay even up till this moment he is so full of life. ALS has a cure and it is a herbal cure contact the doctor for more info on on how to get the medication. Thanks for reading my story.
