Autism is one of five common developmental disorders. Abnormalities in social communication are characterized as highly repetitive behaviors. It is an unknown disease in which the processing of the brain is influenced and precisely how it is affected by the changes of nervous cells and synapses in the brain of autism and their organization. In autism, the only treatment that can be performed alone is not sufficient by itself, and treatment should be formed to the needs of the child. Combined treatment approach is very important, with family and education system being the main pillars of treatment.
SVF Stem Cell Therapy in Autism
Studies have shown that stem cell therapy has the ability to act on metabolism, the immune system, damaged cells and tissues.
The primary target organ of the treatment of SVF stem cells, with positive effects on the entire body organs and systems. Brain memory, concentration, interest, speech, etc. parts of the functions are damaged. Stem cell therapy helps increase blood and oxygen flow to the brain (improved perfusion), renewal of damaged neurons, and formation of new blood vessels. After a certain period of time, the transplanted stem cells make the cells in their surroundings functional, and these cells multiply to regenerate the white and gray matter. Thus, a reduction in neurological symptoms and an increase in intelligence capacity are observed.
Studies have shown that stem cells can be active to see more than one function at the same time.
- Communication skills;
- Learning, memory and thinking capacity.
Renewal of missing (missing) neuronal connections, improvement of synaptic communication with the formation of new neuronal links, and improvement of new neuronal connections can result in improved disease by increasing endocrine functions.
Expected improvements in patients with autism who have received stem cell therapy:
- Better tolerance to different foods and improved digestion. In some children, it has been found that new foods are spontaneously tested.
- The ability to communicate better in a child (primarily eye contact).
- Show better behavior at home and in the outdoors.
- Noise, strangers and bright colors are less afraid or not afraid at all.
- Improvement in speaking ability (if the child does not speak at all, he starts to vocalize and spell and then use words).
- Improvement and improvement in writing skills.
- Improvement in self-care skills.
- Show interest and improve concentration.
Although there are differences in the grades of the various improvements above, progress has been reported in the vast majority of cases.
Stem cell therapy is an effective and safe method in the treatment of autism. Many children with autism and autistic disorders at different grades can be helped. However, in order to achieve optimal results, it is recommended that stem cell therapy is not applied alone, but in conjunction with integrated therapies such as diet and education programs.
