If you or a loved one are among the 30,000 Americans with MS, reflect for a moment on what your principle physician has done so far to help you manage your condition. Most likely he has prescribed drugs to help reduce inflammation and symptom severity, plus perhaps a “healthy diet,” exercise program and possibly physical and other therapies. There is no question but that these approaches have helped many MS sufferers “muddle through,” though often with side effects and complications. Dr. Steenblock on-the-other-hand takes a more comprehensive or “whole bodily systems” approach to MS. Among the things he employs to help MS patients realize substantial clinical improvements that stick around:
(1) Identify and eradicate any infections, allergies and other contributors to inflammation including those in the GI track, gums or elsewhere.
(2) Test for toxic, tissue-damaging heavy metals and then remove any that are present in high amounts by means of IV chelation therapy.
(3) Identify and implement the best ways to foster repair of the MS patient’s leaky blood-brain barrier and remyelination of their demyelinated nerves. Among the many innovative treatment approaches that are part of Dr. Steenblock’s clinical repertoire:
(a) Dietary & Nutritional measures geared to reduce neuroinflammation and provide the body with what it needs to combat the MS autoimmune process, as well as repair and restore disease-ravaged tissues.
(b) Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT): HBOT helps reduce inflammation in the Central Nervous System (CNS) and increases oygen to diseased and hypoxic (oxygen-starved) tissues.
( c ) External counterpulsation (EECP): This noninvasive medical device painlessly and safely pushes blood from a patient’s legs and trunk to his heart, which results in better circulation. Although the FDA has only approved EECP to treat angina and congestive heart failure, Dr. Steenblock has found it to benefit MS patients when used in concert with HBOT (See b. above).
(d) Intravenous therapies: Many have similar effects to what you’ll find under (a) above, but work much quicker than dietary measures and supplements.
(e) Whole bone marrow transplants: Bone marrow contains stem cells that have been shown to help dampen the MS autoimmune attack on myelin and promote remyelination of demyelinated nerves. You will find some of these studies on http://www.stemcelltherapies.org/umresearch/ms-research2.html, and additional information on stem cells & MS at http://www.strokedoctor.com/the-news/212-stem-cell-therapy-for-multiple-sclerosis.
(f) Referrals to Mexico for treatment with adult (nonembryonic) stem cells: Dr. Steenblock serves as a medical and scientific consultant to various adult (nonembryonic) stem cell medicine programs in Mexico, and in this capacity has accumulated a lot of information and documentation concerning the responses of MS patients to treatment with stem cells isolated from umbilical cord blood, placenta, amnion and other donor tissues. Some of these findings with respect to MS can be found in “Umbilical Cord Stem Cell Therapy: The Gift of Healing from Healthy Newborns” (Call 1-800-300-1063 to purchase a copy.) When he feels an MS patient would benefit from a specific stem cell treatment available in Mexico (but not the USA), he will make a referral to the program offering this.
