What is Parkinson’s disease (PD)?
Parkinson’s disease (PD) belongs to a group of conditions called motor system disorders, which are the result of the loss of dopamine-producing brain cells. The four primary symptoms of PD are tremor, or trembling in hands, arms, legs, jaw, and face; rigidity, or stiffness of the limbs and trunk; bradykinesia, or slowness of movement; and postural instability, or impaired balance and coordination. As these symptoms become more pronounced, patients may have difficulty walking, talking, or completing other simple tasks. PD usually affects people over the age of 50. Early symptoms of PD are subtle and occur gradually. In some people the disease progresses more quickly than in others. As the disease progresses, the shaking, or tremor, which affects the majority of PD patients may begin to interfere with daily activities. Other symptoms may include depression and other emotional changes; difficulty in swallowing, chewing, and speaking; urinary problems or constipation; skin problems; and sleep disruptions. There are currently no blood or laboratory tests that have been proven to help in diagnosing sporadic PD. Therefore the diagnosis is based on medical history and a neurological examination. The disease can be difficult to diagnose accurately. Doctors may sometimes request brain scans or laboratory tests in order to rule out other diseases
Treatments today for PD include medications that can provide relief from the many symptoms associated with the condition. Some medications work by assisting in the performance of neurotransmitters in the brain responsible for the transfer information from one cell to another. In some cases, regulation of certain regions of the brain are necessary for improvement of symptoms. Many herbal remedies and supplements are also available for use to help relieve symptoms experienced in patients with PD.
How can Stem Cells Help Parkinson’s Disease?
Stem cells reproduce at a rapid rate and have the potential to replace different cell types in the body. Adipose stem cell therapy is a breakthrough procedure in regenerative medicine in which a patient’s own adipose stem cells are harvested and reintroduced into the body. This regenerative therapy is designed to aid in the restoration of dying tissues in the body. In adult stem cell therapy treatment for PD, the adult stem cells are collected, enriched, and administered in order to replace the dying nerve cells in the brain. These advancements in the treatment of Parkinson’s Disease work to fully regenerate missing or damaged tissue that the body would not ordinarily regrow.
Recent research of PD and related dementias brings upon new treatments for those battling the disease. These treatments have shown potential improvements with the following symptoms:
- Enhanced behavior and mood
- Reduction or elimination of stiffness
- Improvements in motor and non-motor skills
- Reduction of shaking or tremors
- Increased energy
While aging is among the greatest risk factors for PD, it does not have to be a normal part of the aging process. With our treatment, hope can be returned to those managing their condition. When traditional medications show less than optimal results, this advanced technology offers a natural procedure to assist your body in rebuilding itself. Stem cells treatments are a new alternative way of approaching PD that aids in the restoration of diseased and dying tissues in the brain. There is no cure for Parkinsons’s Disease, but our methods have shown beneficial in the management of symptoms.

Which Kinds of cells are used in Parkinson’s disease and how are they obtained?
Adult Stem Cells are obtained from ITC Bank from donor tissue or Autologous Transplant is harvested from the patient own Adipose Tissue and it takes 21 days to culture, differentiate and administered the Adult Stem Cells to the patient.
How are Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) administered in Parkinsons Disease?
A Typical treatment is as following and are administered by a license physician.
- Medical evaluation, blood testing (Day 1)
- intrathecal injections of adipose derive Mesenchymal Stem Cells (Day 2)
- Hyperbaric Chamber (Day 3)
- 1 intravenous injections of adipose tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells , with Vit. C, Eicosanoids and Aminoacids (day 4)
- Hyperbaric Chamber (Day 5)
