Brynn McLennan was diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy at the tender age of 12. This disease has left a severe curve in her back, and affects muscle growth in her face, shoulder blades and torso.
For nearly two decades Brynn has tried various types of treatment – she has taken vitamins, attended physio and acupuncture sessions and undergone injections.
Despite all of these procedures, she has seen the most effective results from stem cell treatment.
“I’m physically more sturdy, stable, I have gained weight, which I was unable to do before. The connections from my brain to my muscles have improved,” Brynn said.
Often referred to as regenerative medicine, stem cell treatment is thought to support the repair and healing of damaged or diseased parts of the body. Scientific breakthroughs, advancements in technology and positive reports have patients seeking stem cell treatments now more than ever!
Effective stem cells for use in regenerative medicine are found in a baby’s umbilical cord blood or tissue and can be banked for later use by the child or family members if needed.
In addition to treating Muscular Dystrophy for Brynn, stem cells have also treated cancer in Nathan Mumford, bone marrow failure in Matthew Farrow, sickle cell anemia in Cardelia Fox, and the conditions of several others.
There are numerous uses for stem cells, and medical professionals continue to make new discoveries in clinical trials. Learning, for example, that cord blood is not only effective for physical needs such as transplants, but may also be used for developmental conditions such as autism.
Although research continues to showcase the benefits of stem cell treatments many of the claims are not proven yet. If you are looking to use stem cells for treatment, it’s important to seek out a reputable organization to advice you and oversee these types of procedures.
