Umbilical Cord Blood/Stem Cell Therapy has emerged as a promising treatment for a range of medical conditions. Although still considered an experimental treatment, there has been a growing interest in the potential of stem cells to treat neurological disorders, such as autism.
In the book " Educating Marston: A Mother and Son’s Journey Through Autism ," authors Dr. Eric Weiss and Christine (Chris) Weiss share their experience with Umbilical Cord Blood/Stem Cell Therapy as part of their son Marston's autism treatment. The book details their journey and stem cells' impact on Marston's development, providing a roadmap for other families looking for alternative treatments for autism.
So, what exactly is Umbilical Cord Blood/Stem Cell Therapy– and how does it work in the context of autism?
Stem cells are cells that have the ability to differentiate into various types of cells in the body, making them a valuable resource for regenerative medicine. The cells can be obtained from different sources, including embryonic tissue, umbilical cord blood, and adult tissues. Umbilical Cord Blood comes from live healthy births, having no ethical or moral concerns.
