What is Multiple Sclerosis?

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease in which the nerves of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) degenerate. Myelin, which provides a covering or insulation for nerves, improves the conduction of impulses along the nerves and also is important for maintaining the health of the nerves. In multiple sclerosis, inflammation causes the myelin to disappear. Consequently, the electrical impulses that travel along the nerves decelerate, that is, become slower. In addition, the nerves themselves are damaged. As more and more nerves are affected, a person experiences a progressive interference with functions that are controlled by the nervous system such as vision, speech, walking, writing, and memory.

About 350,000 people in the U.S. have multiple sclerosis. Usually, a person is diagnosed with multiple sclerosis between 20 and 50 years of age, but multiple sclerosis has been diagnosed in children and in the elderly. Multiple sclerosis is twice as likely to occur in Caucasians as in any other group. Women are twice as likely as men to be affected by multiple sclerosis earlier in life.

What causes multiple sclerosis?

The cause of multiple sclerosis is still unknown. In the last 20 years, researchers have focused on disorders of the immune system and genetics for explanations. The immune system is the body's defender and is highly organized and regulated. If triggered by an aggressor or foreign object, the immune system mounts a defensive action which identifies and attacks the invader and then withdraws. This process depends upon rapid communication among the immune cells and the production of cells that can destroy the intruder. In multiple sclerosis, researchers suspect that a foreign agent such as a virus alters the immune system so that the immune system perceives myelin as an intruder and attacks it. The attack by the immune system on the tissues that it is supposed to protect is called autoimmunity, and multiple sclerosis is believed to be a disease of autoimmunity. While some of the myelin may be repaired after the assault, some of the nerves are stripped of their myelin covering (become demyelinated). Scarring also occurs, and material is deposited into the scars and forms plaques

Stem cell therapy has proven to improve the conditions of MS in a great many ways.  See Laura's testimonial below.

Laura Pino -  Multiple Sclerosis

I had the procedure Tuesday, December 6 2011. Immediately there were positive results, I was able to rotate my right ankle (where I hadn’t been able to before). For the first couple days my bladder had worse issues than before, not emptying well. These resolved back to what I was used to in a few days. The next day after the procedure, I had a headache with slight double vision, an MS symptom I had heard of but never had. But then I started to notice that my face, formerly very stiff on the right side, was starting to loosen up. And my hand, which had been very stiff, was loosening. And my walking was a lot better. And I hadn’t had air hunger since the procedure. I could lift my leg higher, and my foot didn’t drop so much. I had commonly choked quite a bit on liquids, it was much better. I was still getting 6 hours of sleep, but I was encouraged. In the first week I had a headache 3 days out of seven, with attendant issues in balance, heavy body, trouble moving with core muscles. But on the other days I could see improvement. It has now been 9 days. No more headaches, I think that was just the new cells settling in. I have many improvements.

Better balance, I can stand up without holding onto anything.
Even walk by myself without holding on to my husband or a cane for a short distance. 

Raise my leg enough to get in the truck without moving it with my hands. 

My circulation seems to be improving, since my foot and leg aren’t getting so cold and discolored. 

I walk better, without as much of a limp.
It’s easier to move in general. 

No air hunger, or any kind of trouble breathing. 

The color in my face is better, so much that friends have remarked on it (that’s how I know). 

I am not in bed all the time but am up and about.

I got 7 ½ unbroken hours of sleep last night I am excited to see what the future will bring.
