In October of 2011, I received my very first round of Adult Stem Cell Treatments in Shijiazhuang, China. It was a great success. The treatment enhanced my balance which enabled me to walk short distances. My body strength greatly increased and my concentration improved to such an extent that I was able to read and write again, and work on my PC for hours.

mystory

My name is Riaan Van Der Merwe. I am 39 years-old. I suffer from Ataxia, a deteriorating neurological illness that severely affects my balance, muscle strength and concentration.

I have had two successful rounds of Adult Stem Cell Treatment in China, 2011,and in Thailand, 2016. The treatment has enabled me to regain my balance, muscle strength and concentration to some extent.

BECOMING ILL - JANUARY 2007

During the first few weeks of January 2007 I became extremely, unusually tired.

We don't know what had caused the tiredness. All I know is that I could feel I was becoming weaker. I started to lose my balance, my muscle strength, muscle coordination, and concentration.

It was a very slow, but tangible deterioration at first. At that time I was still able to hold a job, working at a Photograpy studio in Pretoria. But I could feel that something was very wrong with me. 

Around June 2007 the deterioration increased. I was now significantly weaker.

I struggled to walk, and would often fall over. My muscle strength became extremely weak, and deteriorated to the point where I became wheelchair bound.My concentration became so weak, I wasn’t able to remember the chords when playing guitar.

I struggled to read, watch television or couldn’t work on a computer for more than a few minutes or I would become extremely dizzy, and get intense chest pains.

We had multiple tests done at the Steve Biko Academic Hospital  in Pretoria, between July-August 2007, including MRI and CT scans, an EEG, Lumbar punch and blood tests. The tests showed no abnormalities. I was seen by several neurologists at the hospital, who were unable to make a proper diagnosis. They had told me that whatever illness I have, there is no treatment for it, and no cure for my symptoms.

We had consulted several other neurologists, who were also unable to provide a diagnoses. Everywhere we turned for help, we were given the cold shoulder.

Things were looking so grim in fact, that a top neurologist from Cape Town - whom we wanted to fly out to and consult - told me over the phone that it would be pointless to go see him, since he cannot see any abnormalities on my scans. He had actually said that if I come see him, he would give my illness a fancy title, give me a "good luck" slap on the shoulder. And nothing else.

Meanwhile, I continued to deteriorate.

THERE IS HOPE - SEPTEMBER 2007

I had done a lot of research on the internet pertaining to my symptoms. I came accross a group of doctors in China who have had some success by treating people with symptoms similar to mine, with Adult Stem Cells. It was at the time, a relatively new type of treatment. I knew nothing about it.

I applied for Adult Stem Cell treatment, and was accepted in September of 2007. Then the fundraising began. No easy job.

Four years later I arrived at the Bethune International Peace Hospital, in Shijiazhuang, China, from 10 October to 11 November, 2011, to undergo Adult Stem Cell Treatment. We had done MRI Scans and Bloot Tests at the hospital, which yielded no results. I was then diagnosed with Ataxia.

During this period I received seven 30ml Adult Stem Cell packets, along with full rehabilitation. This included physical therapy, and acupuncture. 

The results of the treatment were remarkable. Within a few weeks I had good balance, and could walk unassisted. My muscle strength improved drastically. I could stand for long periods, and had more energy. My concentration improved to the point, where after two weeks, I was able to read 60 pages of a book ,without experiencing dizziness or chest pains. Prior to treatment I wasn't able to read a page without suffering from the symptoms. 

Though not completely healthy, I was able to live a quality life for a few years, after which my condition deteriorated.

I had received another round of Adult Stem Cell Treatments in Thailand in 2016. Again, I had seen remarkable results and had seen significant improvements in my condition. There is hope!
