The treatment options available to Chronic Lyme Disease Sufferers
Those seeking chronic Lyme disease treatment options have reason to rejoice thanks to a recent study that offers extremely encouraging news.
A recent qualitative study undertaken at Nutech Mediworld in New Delhi into the effectiveness of Embryonic Stem Cells on Lyme Disease provides plenty of encouragement regarding this form of treatment.
Lyme disease is a serious bacterial infection that is obtained after receiving a bite from an infected tick. Initial symptoms include:
Unfortunately, many of the initial symptoms are also those that flu sufferers exhibit, therefore, Lyme disease often goes undiagnosed for a considerable period of time. What to look out for, and what makes LD symptoms differ significantly from the flu, is the initial rash around the bite.
When untreated, Lyme disease can have a devastating and life-threatening effect on sufferers that can result in severe, life-long symptoms that result in a significant reduction in quality of life for these individuals. Sadly, this is the case for many people unfortunate to receive the bite from an infected tick.
While there is a cure for Lyme disease when it is picked up in the early stages, chronic Lyme disease sufferers are not so fortunate. When symptoms following the initial bite are identified and treated with antibiotics, most people make a swift recovery. However, for those not fortunate enough to discover the illness quickly, serious issues can result.
Two of the most common afflictions for chronic Lyme disease sufferers are arthritis and myocarditis. In chronic cases, long-term and continual courses of antibiotics provide no benefit and therefore alternative methods of treatment are required.
Until recently, many chronic sufferers of Lyme disease have had little cause for optimism.
Exciting results have been reported following a qualitative research study into the effectiveness of stem cell treatment in the hope of making Lyme disease curable for those suffering long-term effects.
This exciting study had been undertaken by Geeta Shroff in New Delhi and the results are extremely encouraging to say the least.
The purpose of the study was to evaluate the effectiveness of Human Embryonic Stem Cell Treatment on five individuals who were suffering from Lyme Disease after-effects.
The location of the study was Nutech Mediworld, a fully certified centre for stem cell therapy under the watchful eye of an independent ethics committee.
Four separate treatment phases were performed for the five patients who had volunteered in the study.
In all, there were 5 study participants selected to take part in the research, A summary of the five patients is as follows:
The findings of the study were extremely encouraging for all those hopeful for an eventual lyme disease cure. All study participants reported significant improvements following Human Embryonic Stem Cell therapy. This was especially the case for the patients that were struggling to walk straight and having difficulties with balance. The reported outcome was that all these patients have regained their balance and are returning to their daily activities with less discomfort post-therapy.
Furthermore, patients reported significant results in improved vision, fewer tremors, decreased fatigue, no slurring of speech, as well as improvements in stamina and appetite. Lastly, some patients also reported a decrease in stiffness and numbness in the upper limbs.
Clearly this study is just one example to show the exciting opportunity that Stem Cell therapy can provide to those searching to resolve the persistent symptoms that chronic Lyme disease causes. This is the hope that chronic sufferers of Lyme disease have been hoping for.
Keep checking back as we report on more and more positive findings in the world of Lyme’s disease treatment using Embryonic Stem Cells.
