REASON FOR TREATMENT:
At the age of 16 months, Malika experienced her first febrile convulsion. Malika spent 10 days in comatose state and later diagnosed with viral Encephalitis.
Malika's parents are seeking to better her life, and after extensive research into alternative treatments have decided to bring Malika to Beijing Puhua International hospital, and try it's extensive rehabilitation and Cell Therapy treatment.
Condition before treatment:
After the initial brain damage, Malika was blind, stopped speaking and could no longer hold objects. Her development has slowed down significantly.
Over time Malika has regained some of her abilities, such as her vision and walking, however she still cannot speak and is fully dependant on her parent for assiatnce with all daily activities. Malika's cognitive functions suffered greatly due to her encephalitis.
Before the treatment, Malika could make some sounds, but did not speak words clearly nor formed sentences. Malika would not make eye contact with other people and was uncooperative. She exhibited a detached behavior, and seemed to not recognize her surrounding environment, including her parents.
Malika's attention spans were very limited, so could only focus on watching cartoons for a short while and for the most part, preferred walking around aimlessly. Malika screamed and cried often without any obvious reason.
Malika was also suffering from poor movements coordination. She tiptoed while walking.
Cell Therapy implantation, activation of neural cells via a daily supply of neurotrophic factors, daily rehabilitation and occupational therapy sessions, and daily Traditional Chinese Medicine treatments.
After the treatment:
After the treatment, Malika's emotional functions have improved, she stopped crying without any reason and began smiling after the first Cell Therapy implantation.
Malika was more responsive to surrounding stimulations and started making eye contact, and respond to her name. She seemed to understand and follow more instructions given by her parents and physiotherapists.
Malika's attention span has increased. She is now able to concentrate on performing different actions while undergoing rehabilitation trainings. After Cell Therapy treatment, Malika was able to sit through a full session of occupational therapy, following the therapists' instructions, something she did not do ever in her life before the treatment.
Malika exhibits more interest in her surrounding environment and can actively grasp objects offered to her.
We were happy to see these improvements in Malika's condition and wish her to keep gaining new achievements. Her parents have decided to seek an extensive rehabilitation program in their native Algeria, in order to gain further improvements in her condition.
