I was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease 9 years ago, but now, thanks to Dr. Gonzalez, I feel like I am healed!
Pharr, TX (PRWEB) March 18, 2010 –
Dr. Omar D. Gonzalez, founder and Medical Director of Integra Medical Center, has designed and developed a methodology of treatments which he has used for patients with Parkinson’s Disease. His patients’ conditions are improved substantially after receiving Dr. Gonzalez’ therapies. The methodology used by Dr. Gonzalez involves the use of Stem Cells which are safely prepared and managed in IMC’s lab. IMC keeps the stem cells sterile and ready for implantation, adhering to the Center’s protocol for their strict proprietary methods. More than 50 patients from Mexico, Canada and the United States, including Hawaii have received Dr. Gonzalez’s cutting-edge therapy.
Before and after their treatments, Dr. Gonzalez’s Parkinson’s patients at IMC were evaluated using the Unified Parkinson’s Disease Rating Scale (UPDRS). According to the results shown by this rating method, patients reported the following improvements, after their treatments at IMC:
- 80% Better coordination and balance
- 70% Less overall rigidity and stiffness
- 60% Less tremor
- 80% More energy and better mood
- 50% More Mental clarity
- 90% Less dependent on others
Because of the dramatic improvement seen in his Parkinson’s patients and other types of patients who have obtained his Stem Cell methodology, Dr. Gonzalez expects to see continued good results in the various levels of their diseases’ progress.
For Dr. Gonzalez’ approach to dealing with the diseases of his patients, he explains that there are three levels of results: first, to slow down the progression of the disease, second to stop its progression, and thirdly to reverse the symptoms of the disease. In Dr. Gonzalez’ assessment of his work, he believes that at IMC, the third level has been achieved in more than 80% of his Parkinson’s patients.
When Dr. Gonzalez consults initially with his patients at IMC, he explains to them and their families the various factors which can affect the possible outcome of their treatments; the age of the patient; the time of onset of their symptoms and their level of deterioration at the time of beginning treatment.
Currently, Dr. Gonzalez is treating Parkinson’s patients who have different levels of deterioration. These patients are not only experiencing improvements in their coordination, balance, tremor, dementia but also, other general aspects of the condition such as depression and lack of vitality.
Parkinson's Disease is a progressive neurological condition affecting movements such as walking, talking, and writing. It is named after Dr. James Parkinson (1755-1824), the London doctor who first identified Parkinson's as a specific condition.
Parkinson's occurs as result of a loss of nerve cells in the part of the brain known as the substantia nigra. These cells are responsible for producing a chemical known as dopamine, which allows messages to be sent to the parts of the brain that co-ordinate movement. With the depletion of dopamine-producing cells, these parts of the brain are unable to function normally.
The problem with this substantia nigra is that when about 80% of the dopamine production has been lost, the symptoms of Parkinson's appear and the level of dopamine will continue to fall slowly over the years. The reason why the loss of dopamine occurs in the brains of people with Parkinson's is currently unknown. Most researchers believe it is likely that many factors play a role in causing Parkinson's. Areas of research into the cause include genetics and environmental factors.
Scientists have identified 9 genes linked to Parkinson's, of which the parkin gene is most commonly associated with the familial form of Parkinson's.
Also, there is some evidence that environmental factors may cause dopamine-producing neurons to die, leading to the development of Parkinson's. Several toxins have been shown to cause Parkinson's-like symptoms. There may also be a link between use of herbicides and pesticides and the development of Parkinson's.
Parkinson’s Disease (PD) is a condition most people know about nowadays. Dr. Gonzalez agrees with many other doctors who believe that Parkinson’s is going to be a public health issue in the coming years, especially in developed countries.
