REASON FOR TREATMENT
Badreddin started to experiencing numbness and tingling sensation in his feet around 10 years ago. His symptoms were spontaneous, and would repeatedly occur for 10 days, each time. He felt electric waves shooting from his back to his feet, every time he moved his neck. A short time after experiencing his first sympoms, Badreddin began suffering from progressive weakness of his lower limbs. Eventually Badreddin was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.
The medications that Badreddin was prescribed with were not improving his condition, so Badreddin's family turned to alternative treatments sources, willing to find a solution, in order to improve Badreddin's quality of life.
