Losing control of your own body and muscles is not easy, but this rare debilitating condition called myasthenia gravis may be able to be helped with our non-invasive Stem Cell Therapy treatment.
Myasthenia gravis is characterized by the fluctuating weakness of the skeletal or voluntary muscles (muscles that are under your control). Those suffering from this disorder often face frustration due to the inability to control their legs, arms of facial features.
The initial cause of relapsing myasthenia gravis is unknown, but certain viral or bacterial proteins might be the reason for the autoimmune problem.
Myasthenia gravis is a result of an autoimmune disorder. This means that the body’s own immune system attacks healthy tissues and cells – and in this case specifically, the neurotransmitter substance acetylcholine. When this substance is attacked, communication between the nerves and muscles is disrupted, causing the loss of muscle control.
There are a few factors that can worsen symptoms and lead to other disorders like lupus and rheumatoid arthritis, these include:
I couldn't walk through the Seattle airport, it's a long walk between terminals and I had to ask for wheelchair assistance and that was pretty traumatic for me. What is wrong with me that I can'e even walk that distance. So just to be able to move is an incredible thing. I had the injection directly in my knee, the injection is not a big deal. I think after a couple of months I could see enough improvement that I thought it would be helpful to do this again simply because I was having hip pain and neck pain also on that right side. So it was just really a good choice for me and I am so glad I did, it's really made a difference. I would definitely recommend it.
“What a difference the treatment made in 4 weeks! Things that we used to enjoy, we can do again. Balance is better, can walk better – with more energy, vitality, spunk and enthusiasm. We both have so much more freedom and movement without joints hurting and the intense pain. It’s a new life!“
