Stamp Out Movement Disorders
There are only about 500 cases of PLS in the US. Since it is so rare, I was initially misdiagnosed with Parkinson’s and ended up with an unnecessary brain surgery. Now I see my neurologist twice a year and he basically says “Hi Jay, there’s still nothing we can do.” In his world, what I have cannot be treated, medicated, or cured.
As a now one-handed web developer, a client of mine suggested that I try stem cell therapy. They have had some successes with Parkinson’s and I am hoping that it is successful with PLS.
I’m not one to ask for help – I’m usually the one who gives it. However, my insurance won’t cover stem cell therapy, and the thought of living as a completely dependent person who can’t do the things I love is a rather grim alternative.
I build websites for a living, and I also publish a newsletter for radio broadcasters. I’m a second-generation radio guy myself, and my newsletter is the only resource that small, home-town broadcasters have. I’m passionate about both, and they’re my only sources of income.
Not to be able to work creatively supporting some amazing people, and on top of that to put all the financial pressure on my wife… well… I don’t want to go down that path.
Your support pays for my stem cell therapy and the travel to get there and back. Though the stem cells are taken from my own body, the U.S. does not allow them to be injected back in to the body via this particular process yet. If the treatment is successful, the PLS won’t progress, and I may regain the full use of the right side of my body. My hope is that this treatment works, so that I and others with neurodegenerative diseases can once again have the quality of life we once enjoyed. You can join me on my journey on my blog post here .
To show my appreciation, I am going to offer a free basic website to the highest donor as my way of saying thank you and giving back. It won’t necessarily be a fast turn-around time, but it will be a great website – hopefully designed and developed by the first person to be cured of PLS.
Thank you for your kindness and generosity.
For those of you who are curious, I'm being treated by Dr. Todd Ovokaitys (who goes by "Dr. Todd" for obvious reasons) whose company, Qigenix , has pioneered the use of lasers in stem cell therapy; and Dr. Randall Davis from Luminec Life Sciences who has combined the formulations Tri-Amino & TAFA400 based on the "Schutt Paradigm of Free Amino Alignment & Molecular Stability" along with a customized nutrition program to enhance my immune system to maximum levels for pre-& post op stem cell therapy.
In each case, and particularly in the last case, I have felt some immediate energy shifts within my body. At first it seems that my balance was off, but in reality it was just a redistribution of energy and musculature that I had to get used to. In fact, immediately following the last procedure I was able to walk relatively smoothly and with a fair amount of balance without using my cane.
But the most exciting news of all came during my semiannual visit to my neurologist last week: he did a thorough top-to-bottom analysis of my condition and found that in a number of cases what was once a muscle strength of "0" was now a "1," "2," or "3"!
I am fortunate to have a neurologist who is open to new ideas, who is in favor of anything that will help his patients – so he has been following my case closely and has been very positive about what I'm doing. (Typically with my condition, there is no course of action, no medicine – thank goodness – in the world of traditional medicine, so our encounter every six months is more of a fly-by joke-fest.)
I wish I could tell you that I threw away my cane and danced out of the treatment clinic, but at least I don't have to report that nothing is happening. I'm making steady progress, and I hope to have more treatments in the future to increase the rate and magnitude of my recovery.
I can't stress adequately the gratitude I feel for your contributions, whether they be in the form of thoughts and prayers and well-wishes, or something slightly more negotiable.
With thanks and good wishes,
So far everything is going well. The combination of the stem-cell therapy, the nutritional supplements and the change of diet have worked together to make me healthier in general and to improve my stamina and mobility.
As you can see from the before-and-after photos on my Facebook page – despite the fact that the "before" was professionally done (as part of the video on my GFM site) And the "after" was a spontaneous snapshot – I am pounds lighter and immeasurably healthier.
Thanks again for everything, and I hope 2016 brings you great happiness, health and prosperity.
