Stem Cell Treatment for Ataxia & Nerve Cell Regeneration

Ataxia occurs through a disruption in bodies equilibrium, neurotransmitters, and cell signaling capacity brought about primarily through a lesion in the frontal lobe.

What is Ataxia?

Friedreich’s ataxia sclerosis is another type of Ataxia but Friedreich’s is basically hereditary. Lesions similar to those found in Aphasia, multiple Sclerosis and strokes can be found from the lateral and dorsal columns from the spine. The lesions of this common movement disorder generally start during childhood are accompanied by speech impairment, ataxia, scoliosis, peculiar movements, frequent hypertrophic cardiomyopathy, and even paralysis.[1]


Motor ataxia is the inability to manage the coordination of the muscles. Sensory ataxia is called such because of the proprioceptive area between the peripheral nerves and the motor cortex is lost. This loss results in uncoordinated movements, that becomes more apparent when an individual’s eyes are closed.

Ataxia-telangiectasia is a serious progressive form of cerebellar ataxia, that is related to abnormal eye movements, oculocutaneous telangiectasia, immunodeficiency, and sinopulmonary disease.[2]

Stem Cell Therapy for Spinocerebellar Ataxia

Neural Cell Treatment for Ataxia and Autoimmune cerebellar ataxia offers a promising treatment for those seeing the ability to repair/reverse loss of motor neuron related brain damage. Stem cells are essentially un-specialized cells that can be differentiated into any type of cell or tissue in the human body including neural cells, astrocytes & oligodendrocytes. Stem cells are unique since they can reproduce themselves and divide indefinitely.[3] Adult stem cells are able to also create specialized cells such as:Ataxia-therapy-using-stem-cells

The ability to make new cells and tissues in the body indicates clearly that adult stem cells can be used to replace diseased and damaged body tissues, organs, and lesions for the treatment of Ataxia with Stem Cells. Learn more about stem cells. Ataxia therapy with stem cells is non-invasive (No Surgery) and permanent.[4]

Our Ataxia protocol seeks to repair damaged and/or diseased tissues brought about by injuries or even hereditary such as Spinal muscular atrophy.

Please Note that not all patients Qualify for treatment of Degenerative Neurological conditions such as ATAXIA.Learn bout brain healthy foods here. Patients with late stage, severe supplement brain fog, multiple underlying health conditions or travel limitations to Bangkok may not be good candidates for the estimated 2 week treatment protocol.

Treating Sporadic Spinocerebellar Ataxia

Number of Stem Cell Infusions for Ataxia: Will depend on the patient needs
Type of Cellular Infusions for Ataxia: 
Enhanced Mesenchymal (MSC+) Stem cells that are expanded & delivered over a series.  Delivery of cells, exosomes, and cytokines are done through Intravenous (IV), Intrathecally or via a lumbar puncture.

Rehabilitation Treatment for Ataxia: Rehabilitation therapy is optional and can be performed 2-4 hours per day up to 6 days per week. Medical visas and accommodations packages for an extended stay can also be included at an additional cost.

Ataxia Treatment Guidelines for 2024

Neural cell treatment for Ataxia will require a minimum of 2-3 Weeks in Bangkok. Due to varying stages of the disease, our medical team will need to evaluate all potential patients prior to medical recommendations. To begin the qualification process for our multi-stage treatment protocol please contact us today.
