Mother From Illinois Seeks Stem Cell Treatment Abroad

Michelle Brown, 30, mother of​ two and​ resident of​ Lincoln, Illinois who is​ diagnosed with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, more commonly known as​ ALS or​ Lou Gehrig’s disease has recently gone to​ Mexico for​ stem cell treatment. According to​ the​ ALS Association’s website, ALS is​ a​ progressive neurodegenerative disease which attacks motor neurons traveling from the​ brain through the​ spinal cord. as​ the​ motor neurons are lost, voluntary muscle movement becomes increasingly difficult to​ maintain.
At present, there is​ no proven form of​ treatment to​ cure or​ reverse the​ effects of​ the​ disease. But, there are some in​ the​ field of​ medicine who believe stem cell treatment can make a​ difference.
Brown’s first stem cell therapy Mexico treatment, completed in​ February, involved lamb stem cells.
Her and​ other patients from the​ U.S. have been seeking Tijuana stem cell treatment, and​ seeing very positive results. Brown reported after her first treatment, that though progress has been slow, and​ not so noticeable to​ others, she herself has felt improved strength in​ her legs, being able to​ roll over in​ bed all on her own.

The U.S. government does not currently offer funding for​ stem cell research, but Brown and​ others hope to​ change America’s perspectives on the​ controversial topic.
“The misconception about stem cell treatment is​ that all stem cells are embryonic, and​ that’s not true,” Brown said. “There are stem cells in​ umbilical cords and​ other places. I would just ask that people really research and​ look into stem cell treatment beyond what they hear.”
