Improvements coming out of the gate for Evie Morgan (3 year old little girl with Spina bifida)

Three year old Evie Morgan has spina bifida and a Facebook page devoted to her journey to betterment at https://www.facebook.com/evieswarriors/. She was treated in Mexico by Nova Cells Institute doctors during April (2016) and soon her Mum, Heather, was emailing NCIM patient care coordinator, Grace Odgers PhD cand., a series of positive reports and video clips.  Heather also made posts to the aforementioned Facebook page — three of which follow further down below.

Evie Morgan - April 2016
Evie in Mexico getting IV infusion

 

On 4-27-16 Heather Morgan sent this email message to NCIM’s Grace Odgers, PhD cand.:

We felt very comfortable in the hospital. The room was very clean and had a private bathroom and sink. The pediatrician, Dr. Sanchez, was amazing and Evie loved her so much. Dr. Sanchez spoke great English and we had no trouble understanding her at all. The nurses were very attentive to whatever it was that Evie needed and Grace was always right there to translate for us if they had questions or we wanted to say something. The procedure was quick and painless. Within 5 minutes of receiving the treatment Evie began moving her toes. In the week and a half since treatment Evie is still able to move her toes on command (prior to treatment Evie only had very little involuntary movement of her toes), she is urinating more on her own and has very increased balance. She is now beginning to walk much longer distances with her canes (before she had a walker). At her next urology appointment we are going to be able to start discussing next steps in seeing how her bladder can fully function without medication. We are very pleased with the results we have seen thus far and can’t wait to see what else Evie is going to do!

This video was taken 2 days after stem cells. Evie is now able to move her toes on command! Before it was completely involuntary movement. Pardon her sassiness at the beginning 😂 Evie also has incredibly improved balance and is able to walk much longer distances with her canes! ‪#‎evieswarriors‬

Evie is showing improvements in her bladder function and abilities since yesterday. We aren’t sure if this is going to be a consistent thing but we are definitely watching now. This is nuts.

Sorry for lack of updates. Everything went perfectly and the treatment is now complete. Within minutes Evie was flexing her right ankle when asked and wiggling all 5 toes. Some of the movement is involuntary right now as the cells are being repaired. We will continue to see results for a few months. Thank you all for supporting our girl! ‪#‎evieswarriors‬

New study underscores how messed up “garbage processing” in neurons causes major problems

TOP DOWN MRI SCAN - Free MSNEW STUDY UNDERSCORES HOW MESSED UP “GARBAGE DISPOSAL” PROCESSING IN NEURONS CREATES BIG PROBLEMS: Breaking the brain’s garbage disposal (AUTOPHAGY): Study shows even a small problem causes big effects: http://medicalxpress.com/news/2016-01-brain-garbage-disposal-small-problem.html (1-26-2016)

 

Messed up cellular “garbage disposal system” found to play a role in Alzheimer’s disease (And Nova Cell’s BEACON FACTOR coaxes lysosomes to do their job!)

Many neurodegenerative diseases involve a failure of lysosomes (the “garbage disposal” system within cells including neurons) to do their job properly. Now comes evidence that defective or compromised lysosomes may contribute to Alzheimer’s disease, something ably laid out in a 6-30-15 article on the Medical Express website at http://medicalxpress.com/news/2015-06-failure-cells-garbage-disposal-contribute.html. Here is a salient quote from this article:

Lysosomes, the “garbage disposal” systems of cells, are found in great abundance near the amyloid plaques in the brain that are a hallmark of Alzheimer’s disease. Scientists have long assumed that their presence was helpful—that they were degrading the toxic proteins that trigger amyloid plaque formation.

However, in Alzheimer’s patients, these lysosomes lack the ability to do their jobs properly, and instead of helping, the accumulation of lysosomes may even contribute to the disease, Yale University researchers report the week of June 29 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.

The new findings raise the possibility that coaxing lysosomes to do their jobs could help to prevent the toxic processes that eventually destroy the minds of Alzheimer’s patients.

The big question is how to get lysosomes to do their job as they should. While medicine has little that can pull this off, Nova Cells possesses an effective, nontoxic way to do so: Namely its  proprietary Beacon Factor. Not surprisingly, many patients with neurologic diseases and conditions that involve fouled up lysosomes have responded quickly and beautifully to intravenous infusions of the Beacon Factor. Click to read some of the case histories.

Jane from the “Show Me” State of Missouri – Older lady with Parkinson’s disease & Lewy Body Dementia

MRI OF BRAIN - FREE MORGUEFILENote by Nova Cell’s patient educator & care facilitator, Grace Odgers, Ph.D. cand., concerning Jane at the time she was picked up for transport to Mexico plus a brief summary of what took place after her Beacon Factor & stem cell treatments:

Jane arrived seated in a wheelchair with both hands and arms shaking, the left more so than the right. I knew from her history that she was no longer able to walk without assistance. Her son and her partner kind of lift and drag her from her wheelchair to other seating. She is incontinent and thus uses adult Pampers. Very thin ones. She came to treatment accompanied by her live-in partner and her son, both of whom are named Paul. She is given to having occasional hallucinations and is not aware of what is going on around her.

Jane was given large doses of the Beacon Factor by IV drip the first day in hospital. At night she asked to be helped to the restroom. Her partner and son helped her though she walked to the bathroom, and was not dragged.

The day after her stem cell infusion by both spinal tap and IV, Jane became more alert and began looking at her partner and son directly and was conversing with them. She didn’t say a whole lot but she was definitely more aware of everything and everyone around her. She even said “What is going on?”

Notes made by Jane’s son Paul and sent to NCIM:

Jan 20, 2016

1 pm PST, drove down from San Diego to TJ by biochemist Dr.  Abel Pena and Grace Odgers.

Checked into the hospital

3 pm PST: She ate some soup with lime Jell-O.

4 pm PST: The doctors put in an IV and began a saline drip. Mom took her usual medication.

5 pm PST: The doctor added the first dose of “The Beacon Factor”. We ordered dinner, tuna fish sandwiches, mixed fruit with bananas, mango and apples, some apple juice and water.

Mom seem to perk up while eating a lot, offering food to her partner and I while discussing how good she felt.

Tested her memory several times, which was still spotty, but she seemed concerned that she was “failing”.  Noticed that she had her eyes wide open and answered questions quickly, even though sometimes she didn’t make a lot of sense.  We both noticed she had more coherent thought processes and conversation.

7 pm PST: Mom took her final medication of the day.

Jan 21, 2016

6:30 am PST: Arrived back at the hospital. Mom was a bit frantic.

Really need an interpreter the whole time.

Changed bedding and dressings.

7:00 am PST: Mom was given her morning meds.

Took Mom to the restroom.

9:00 am PST: Mom seemed much more lucid, looking around.  Finally started to fall back to sleep after eating.

Changed bedding again and her dressings.

She slept until 11:30 am

1 pm PST: Anesthesiologist arrived and introduced himself and the fact he would be giving her a local in her back for the spinal puncture stem cell injection procedure.

2pm – 3pm PST: Talked with Mom who sat up on her own a lot, looked around a great deal, though she was still hallucinating and engaged in some nonsensical talk. Observed what was going on, and looked forward to going home.  During conversations she started in with “Come here doggie” and “There’s an old woman, really old, scary, staring at me”

Mom’s facial expressions became much more expressive. She was picking her lips and began folding her blankets and fidgeting a lot.

3 pm PST: The MD arrived to check her blood pressure, heart and blood oxygen level.

3:30 pm PST: Still waiting for them to take her in for her infusion.

She’s asking lots of questions and thinking very clearly after all the “Beacon Factor”.

4:00 pm PST: Mom left to go get stem cells.

5:20 pm PST: Mom was returned to the room, still very groggy from the anesthesia but doing well.

6:00 pm PST: Mom exhibited nearly normal behaviors (for her) of obsessing, and mumbling, but without leaning over as she usually did.  More eye movement and she was more concerned over recent events.

8:00 pm PST: Final dose of regular medicines for the day, after which she quickly became very groggy and tired.

9:00 pm PST: Returned to hotel room

Friday Jan 22, 2016

Returned home to Missouri after a day of travel.

Noticed several things, including obsessive behavior though not as extreme. Mom could be easily instructed to lean back, and she looked through the pages of magazines without tearing up the pages as she’d done in the past.  During changing, she lifted herself up as instructed.  Much more focus than before and she kept up conversations on current topics longer than had been true previously.

Canadian Lady with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy, Corticobasal degeneration (CBD) and prefrontal dementia has an amazing response to her NCIM treatment

MRI OF BRAIN - FREE MORGUEFILEProgressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) is a devastating neurodegenerative disease that oftentimes robs its sufferers of their memories, balance and much more. As bad as this insidious disease is, things get even worse when the patient has other neurologic challenges such as Corticobasal degeneration (CBD) (which causes cell die off in various parts of the brain including in many instances those critical to thinking and executive decision).

Recently Nova Cells was approached by a Canadian gentleman whose wife has PSP, CBD and prefrontal dementia. NCIM doctors reviewed scans of this lady’s brain which revealed clear evidence that her frontal lobes had been impacted by her disease. Her husband was advised that if his wife was treated with primed stem cells and the Beacon Factor, she would probably see very mild improvements that would most likely not be manifest until about 2 months after her treatment.

As this was a “heroic measures” case and the husband did not have an exaggerated hopes concerning outcome (“If she could just relax her right arm and hand, which has caused her so much pain, and be understood a little more, this would be a Godsend”), the patient was booked for treatment on Thursday, April 30.

NCIM patient educator and care coordinator, Grace Odgers, Ph.D. candidate was present during the lady’s treatment and had this to say about her condition  and response coming out of the gate:

The patient is really in a bad condition. But as soon as she came out of the surgery she was acknowledging things and people around her. She was locking  eyes with her husband and looking around which is something she had not done in a quite a while.

And, while her left arm and hand worked normally, her right arm was totally stiff and bent at the elbow and  drawn up against her chest. Her right hand formed a stiff inflexible fist which she could not open or relax at all.

About an hour after her treatment the attending physician came in to check on her and noticed that she was more alert and also that her right arm and hand were now relaxed! He took her hand and opened it more and more until it was fully extended. Then her husband asked her to shake hands with him and she did which amazed everyone!  We were all absolutely flabbergasted and emotional.

Soon the lady was smiling a lot, especially compared to when she first arrived. Prior to her treatment her face was somewhat stiff and expressionless and though she tried to smile, all she could manage was a forced half smile.

The doctors mentioned that when she went into the surgery room and they commenced treating her, she extended her totally stiff right leg about 2 minutes into her infusion.

The couple returned to Canada on Monday the 4th. Grace called the lady’s husband shortly after they got home and was told by him that his wife’s balance had improved significantly (He added that this is “great” because she has a history of falling).
