Stem cells to treat autism?
Has anyone tried stem cell treatment for autism? I am taking my 4 year old son to panama in July.
It looks very promising many kids have made huge advances after their treatment.

Personally, I wouldn't try this for my daughter, from what I understand the bone marrow extraction and the spinal can both be quite painful. I do wish you luck and hope that you update us with any progress your son makes.

It's not from bone marrow it's from umbilical and there is no risk involved either it will help or it won't

Oh, they do one in Germany that uses stem cells from the person's own bone marrow.

I understand that there is no risk, but a spinal can be painful.

There will be no spinal for my son cause he is only four and I'm very happy about that cause I don't want anyone sticking needles in his spine. The are just going to iv it in his arm for four consecutive days which will total 18 million stem cells I believe.
