Mr. J. R. is a 49 year old Mexican national who has been struggling with Progressive Relapsing Multiple Sclerosis for six years, which was rapidly progressing prior to his coming to NCIM (January 2012).
He arrived at NCIM’s treatment facility unable to walk and with his speech so slurred only his family was able to understand him. He also had difficulty swallowing as well as being unable to move his tongue very well. According to NCIM co-administrator & patient care coordinator, Grace, Mr. J. R.’s arms functioned normally but everything from the waist down plus his tongue and throat did not. He was treated with stem cells derived from three umbilical cords, Wharton’s Jelly and his own bone marrow (primed using Nova Cell’s unique laboratory method) along with NCIM’s proprietary Beacon factor.
Six weeks after his treatment Mr. J. R. was able to be understood even on the phone. He was so amazed and ecstatic with the improvement in his ability to communicate that he could not resist calling people to chat plus family and friends whom he often invited to him home to visit with him.
About three months following his treatment he was walking again, specifically taking a few steps at a time and climbing a few stairs — with assistance.
As of August (2012) Mr. J.R. can walk (slowly) without assistance and can also touch his palate with his tongue. He is hoping to be able to return to NCIM in January 2013 for another treatment.
Ms. Elisa is a 38 year old lady diagnosed with Secondary-Progressive Multiple Sclerosis four years ago. Among the things she has been wrestling with:
- Poor balance
- Lots of pain in her legs
- Rigidity in her hands and one leg
- Unable to walk well (Alternates using a walker and wheelchair to get about)
- Severe depression
- Poor appetite with corresponding weight loss
Ms. Elisa was treated during December 2011 with primed stem cells from Wharton’s Jelly, cord blood and her own bone marrow, along with NCIM’s proprietary Beacon Factor.
About two months after her treatment Ms. Elisa noticed her migraine headaches were becoming less frequent. In addition, she was able to balance herself to the point of not being afraid to fall any more though she continues to use her walker to get about. The rigidity in the hand and leg on one side of body has diminished and the other leg is no longer rigid though there is some light twitching which she is managing with tonic water and quinine. Also, Ms. Elisa is eating better, has gained some weight, and though she feels sad she no longer feels controlled by depression (The severe bouts of depression having completely disappeared). She reports seeing no further disease progression.
Mr. M. S., the brother of a prominent Mexican politician, is not a Nova Cell’s patient but instead was treated by his primary care doctor in Mexico using stem cells processed and primed by NCIM. He has been struggling with multiple sclerosis for eight (8) years and complained of severe fatigue, blurred and double vision in one eye, problems with his bladder, constipation, lots of muscle spasticity plus loss of muscle strength.
He was treated in February 2012 and responded so amazingly well his family brought him back to Tijuana in the middle of June to get a booster treatment.
Among the benefits Mr. M.S. has reported: His spasticity is much better especially following his second treatment, his vision is improving and he is getting more control of his bladder. His family is taking him to physical therapy which has resulted in his gaining some physical strength. Perhaps most impressive of all to Mr. M. S. is the fact that his condition has stopped progressing.
Mr. M.S. anticipates seeing additional gains in the months to come and has pledged to report any and all changes to Nova Cell’s co-administrator and & patient care coordinator, Grace.
