REASON FOR TREATMENT: Several years ago, Richard was diagnosed with Progressive Supranuclear Palsy. The disease, has left Richard in a wheelchair, and left him unable to care of himself. At first Richard has experienced frequent falls, and later, as his condition declined, he stopped walking altogether. PSP has affected Richard's speech, and made his eyes extremely sensitive to light, thus causing Richard to wear sunglasses at all times, even while indoors.
Richard and his family have tried everything before deciding to come to China for Cell Therapy treatment. Unfortunately, none of the treatments available for PSP outside of China was able to help him get better, or slow down the decline of his condition. In order to search for a better quality of life, Richard and his family have decided to come to China.
TREATMENT: 4 injections of neural Cell Therapys + Self Cell Therapy activation and proliferation therapy.
START OF TREATMENT: May 6th, 2010
