Treatment with stem cells, a new hope.

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is characterized by being an autoimmune condition, with unclear origin, medical evidence suggest that genetic and environmental factors are involved in the appearance of MS, which tends to be more diagnosed in women than men and from ages to 20 to 30 years, a diagnosis on MS is not made with a specific tests, it often relies on the appearance of symptoms and conditions, which is known as a differential diagnosis.

On Ms immune system confuses and attacks our own body, particularly the myelin sheath nerves, the damage to myelin, derives on unpredicted disrupt signals from the brain to the body, this causes unpredictable symptoms such as: fatigue, difficulty walking, muscle stiffness and spasms, numbness on parts of the body (typically on one side of the body at the time), problems with thinking and learning, symptoms can steadily worse over time or come and go, condition varies from patient to patient, around 50% of the patients with MS (relapsing-remitting), develop a steady progression  of symptoms, with or without periods of remission.

The symptoms of MS can lead to a disability caused by nerve damage, which is one of the main causes of why MS is a problem today, disabilities vary from patient to patient but one constant among the patients is the diminished quality of life derived from disabilities, patients cannot continue their life as always and patients change their habits and routine, this impact on their self-esteem as they cannot do the things usually enjoy, closer relationships also has to adapt to the new life condition of the patient because usually they had to take care of the patient and change their life.

Being diagnosed with MS could be confusing and hard to accept, but living with an acceptable quality of life is possible, but requires to change and adapt to the new challenges, strategies such as fatigue management, stress relief activities, physical exercise, sleep well and improve eating habits, help patients to manage the impact of MS on their lives.

Traditional MS treatment

So far, the medical science cannot cure MS, the actual treatments are designed to control the symptoms and difficulties, for example the steroid medicine helps to speed up recovery from a MS episode, there are also treatments for individual symptoms such as numbness or dizziness, mainly to control the magnitude of a particular symptom.

Treatments usually include physical therapy which helps to build muscle strength and relieves some of the symptoms of MS, even support groups and psychological support are used to help patients to face the inner challenges and adapt to their new reality.
