I have been diagnosed with Scleroderma for about 13 yrs now. Up until recently there has been no major “cure” for this auto immune disorder. Research into Stem Cell treatment has revealed a significant improvement in patients suffering from auto immune disorders, and furthermore Scleroderma patients have seen improvements in their symptoms after the treatment.
Stem Cells are the mother cells that are responsible for developing an entire human body from a tiny two celled embryo; due to their unlimited divisions and strong power to differentiate into all the cells of different lineage. This power of stem cells has been harnessed by the technology to isolate them outside the human body, concentrate in the clean environment and implant back.
Thus, stem cells treatment involves administration of concentrated cells in the targeted area, wherein they can colonize in the damaged area, adapt the properties of resident stem cells and initiate some of the lost functions that have been compromised by the disease or injury.
After years of research, it has been believed that it is better to alter the microenvironment with the application of stem cells instead of suppressing the immune system. Mesenchymal stem cells are known to have angiogenic, transdifferentiation and homing properties, which are useful for forming new blood vessels, differentiating into required targeted cells and creation of microenvironment for the faster secretion of immune cells.
I believe this is the treatment I have been praying for. I believe this is what I have been searching for. After this treatment not only will my symptoms improve, the disease will stop progressing. I will be able to use my muscles again as they will have regained some elasticity and thus make it easier for me to move around. A menial task as sitting and getting up from a chair will no longer require assistance from someone, I will be able to do it like all of you, like a normal person. Life will be bearable, Life will be liveable. Inshallah.
Currently I can’t move around much. I have minimal use of my limbs. My digestive system is being affected, I can hardly eat 3 filling meals in a day. My internal organs are under attack too, I have severe bouts of diarrhea and some days I get intensely constipated. Because of lack of eating, I have lost a lot of weight.
Sometimes I wake up in so much pain I can’t even turn sides on the bed. I need help with everything, from washing up to dressing, from getting around to picking things up. Life has become very difficult for me as this disease keeps progressing.
If this continues my internal system would shut down, I would be refined to a wheelchair as m my limbs would be completely unusable. This will not only reduce the quality of my life severely, leaving me in tremendous pain but also it would end up killing me.
I am positive and believe that this treatment will help me get back on my feet, become an independent woman, earn a living and not be a burden on my family. I want to improve their lives, I want to be their pride. Help me get my life back, my dreams, my aspirations.
I appeal for your support so that I can get to India and get my treatment done. Inshallah.
God Bless x
