Stem Cell Therapy for Autism – Amazing QEEG Results of Kenneth Kelley!

Original Post by Marty Kelley, Kenneth’s mother on July 18, 2013

This is Kenneth’s QEEG scans from 2007, two years before adult stem cells, and 2013 after six adult [uman umbilical cord] stem cell treatments. These are huge improvements. Dr. {Sandlin) Lowe said that the 2007 scan looks like borderline seizures and would indicate that the brain was leading up to develop seizures. Dr. Fallapour told me that many areas in the brain are now functioning normally!!!

Notice how almost all the red area is gone in the first head image! The other pictures show huge improvements, as well! See all the color changes indicating brain improvement. Green is normalized activity.

Today, the scans show that Ken has really good impulse control and there is no signs of Attention Deficit Disorder. Also, the brain is functioning normally, there are no longer any learning disabilities showing up in the scans.

Stem cell treatments for autism: Kenneth Kelley

May 2013 – Update from April 2013 treatment

“I don’t know what is going on, but we are already seeing changes with Ken almost as much as our first stem cell treatment in 2009! I never expected this at this point in treatment!! Ken is so calm, this is fantastic, as two treatments ago, his aggression spiked!! Thank you, everyone for this treatment!”

“Just so you know (and I know) i am not crazy, i just had a long talk with Kens teacher and she is telling me how amazing the changes are already!!!! She is able to reason with him now instead of him losing his temper and his thought process is better, much more calm…she can’t believe the changes already. Ken goes to school in fort Lauderdale. She has had parents that do lots of other therapies, NEVER has she seen changes like with Ken thank you, stem cell institute. Tell everyone thank you”

July 2012 – Update

“Ken has gone to summer camp (overnight) for the week! He was so excited to go! Ken claims that he is no longer scared of the dark and can handle summer camp…It feels very strange to not have him home this week. He is having such a good time.

This is a major event in our lives. If you understand the type of autism Ken had, you would know what a miracle this is. To clarify, Ken is at camp on his own without any support or an aide–he is just like all the other campers. Pray for the families that are still struggling and cannot do this with their children. Stem cells have changed our lives.” – Marty Kelley (Ken’s mother)

Last year, we told you about a 9-year-old autistic boy from Glenburn who traveled to Costa Rica for an unusual treatment. His family says he’s made remarkable progress.

A year ago, 9-year-old Kenneth Kelley couldn’t read. Prior to the age of 7, Kenneth couldn’t even talk. He was diagnosed with autism at an early age. Now his parents say he reads all the time. “It’s amazing,” says Marty Kelley, Kenneth’s mother, “he was no where near that even in December. He just started a little bit a month ago. He picked up the books and started reading.”

Kenneth’s road to recovery began three years ago, when his parents started him on hyberbaric oxygen therapy. Last August, they traveled to Costa Rica where Kenneth received stem cells from umbilical cord blood. It wasn’t long after the procedure the Kelley’s noticed a difference in Kenneth. “Immediately, we noticed within that two or three day time frame,” says his father Donald Kelley.

His parents say his sentence structure has improved and he’s more aware of his surroundings. He even remembers birthdays, days of the week and he can tell time. “We’ve just been waiting for the new things and the gains to stop coming and they’re not stopping. They’re coming every day,” says Marty Kelley.

Kenneth was the first child in Maine, and one of of less than a hundred nationwide, to receive the umbilical cord blood as a treatment for autism. But that didn’t scare the Kelleys. “We were excited for his future and we were scared of a life for him without stem cells and what the future would hold with just autism and no hope,” says Marty Kelley.

The family is heading to Central America for another round of the same treatment. They’re hoping the improvements they’ve seen are just the beginning. “It looks like the sky’s the limit,” she says, “especially with the reading, I never thought I’d see it happen. He’s also doing simple math problems. His teachers who hadn’t seen him in a year said he had improved tremendously.”

Stem cell therapy for autism: Victoria

It must be the stem cells…

Victoria explains the remarkable progress her son has made since undergoing stem cell therapy for autism in Panama at the Stem Cell Institute. He no longer needs to be placed into outside care. All of the professionals who care for him agree that “it must be the stem cells”. He has experienced a “rocketing of understanding”. He is now peaceful, calm and does not attack anyone. He can now be safely around his infant sister.

Stem cell therapy for autism: Millie Jimenez

Millie Jimenez discusses her twin boys’ improvements after they both underwent stem cell therapy for autism at the Stem Cell Institute in Panama City, Panama. One of the boys, who was non-verbal prior to treatment is now speaking in English and Spanish. The other has stopped stimming and both are now making a “more affectionate” connection with their mother.

Stem cell therapy for autism: Juliana Ubinas

Juliana discussed the improvements her daughter has made over the past year and a half after undergoing 2 stem cell clinical protocols at the Stem Cell Institute in Panama City, Panama.

“The changes have been extremely positive and obvious. After my daughter’s first treatment in January 2010, her tantrums diminished. She could transition from one activity to another without throwing a tantrum. She had more self-control. After the second treatment in June 2010, she was in contact more with her surroundings; as if a veil had been lifted. She was surprised, happy and wanting to be with her friends. Her social interaction improved. Before, she was very isolated. After she returned to school following her second treatment, she was able to do “show and tell” for the first time ever. Now she welcomes other children and wants to be part of the group. Her speech is improving. Now she can express to others what she wants.”

Stem cell therapy for autism: Emma

Emma playing ‘wonder ball’ at the pool with her friends.

A year ago tomorrow, when I began this blog, we had just returned from Costa Rica where we took Emma for her first stem cell treatment. We were filled with anticipation, fear and excitement, alternating between fantasies of miraculous recovery and tremendous uncertainty and worry. Like most things in life, we could not predict what the future would hold. We could not know that a year later we would be where we are now, that Emma would be where she now is.

So a quick review… Emma has hit so many milestones in the past year it is difficult to say one is more significant than another. My immediate thought was the most important thing in the past year has been that Emma is learning to read and write (more on that later) and while that is certainly an incredible achievement, when I consider that she is also completely toilet trained, even during the night, that too seems equally significant. I know of families with autistic children – now in their teens – who wear a diaper to bed, with no end in sight. The endless changing of sheets each morning is something I am grateful not to be confronted with. In addition, Emma use to wake up in the middle of the night, often more than once, leaving all of us exhausted to the point of hallucinating. Until we had Emma I had never known exhaustion such as that – to be woken and kept up for hours at a time, only to then face a full day of work where you must function, make decisions and not fall asleep during meetings, is nothing short of surreal. Emma rarely wakes us these days, though she did keep her brother up last night. Poor Nic was showing all the signs of exhaustion we have come to know so well. We will speak with Emma, (which is another milestone) and remind her that she cannot do this.

Emma is speaking in longer, more coherent and increasingly complex sentences. She is expressing herself in more sophisticated ways and is showing genuine empathy for others. She is also initiating more. She has formed friendships with specific children at her school, requests to see her cousins, is clearly upset when told they are not available to come over. Emma seeks out our company, often requesting that one of us join her in her room to watch a movie with her on her computer or play specific games with her. While staying in Aspen with my mother, Emma approached her Granma and said, “Granma can’t snap her fingers. Granma hurt.” She then gently patted my mother’s arthritic fingers.

“No my fingers can’t do that any more,” my mother said, showing Emma her arthritic fingers.

Emma stared at them for a moment and then reached over and tried to snap them. We heard my mother’s knuckles crack as Emma did her best to assist in helping my mother snap her fingers.

“Oh no!” I said, looking over at my mother with concern. ”Are you alright?”

My mother was laughing so hard she couldn’t speak and simply nodded her head. Emma looked on with a grin, trying over and over again to snap her Granma’s fingers. It was a wonderful moment between my mother, whose knuckles kept cracking, much to Emma’s delight and Emma.

The next morning my mother entered the kitchen and said, “Good morning Emmy!”

To which Emma responded, “Good morning Grammy!”

To date we have taken Emma to Central America for stem cell treatments three times now. We have not decided whether we will return for a fourth treatment in the next few months until we have some blood work done to measure her cytokines.

Yesterday as I worked with Emma on her literacy program I handed Emma an index card which said, “the man”. I had laid out a toy plane, a truck, a man and a kid on the table. I handed Emma the index card and said, “Give me this one.”

Without hesitation Emma picked up the toy man and handed him to me. These are the moments, moments I could not allow myself to wish for a year ago, that take my breath away.

Emma is progressing beyond my wildest dreams.

Stem cell therapy for autism: Joseph Lowenstein

From Joseph’s mother:

I just want to share why Joey is an important part of our Jewish Community. Joey was our 10th man today and he allowed us to read from the torah. Joey sat nicely in the last row [there are only 4 rows] through out the service. We called Yosef up for the 7th aliya. he walked up to the torah and with a one word prompt said the set of first prayers. He stood at the torah with me , the reader and 2 other men, enjoying and watching. half way through, he put his hand on the wooden roller. after the reading he said the 2nd prayer and ended it loud and with joy. All the men on the Bimah shook his hand and when he sat down , some of the other men came over to Joey. Bertie, he makes you and me proud. Joey is truly a Jewish soul.

When I observed Joey, I observed the following:
 Joey for the most part was in a very pleasant and cooperative mood. He verbalized louder and his speech seemed clearer than in the past. He made better eye contact with me. When he needed to use the restroom, he verbalized this clearly to me. Socially, he enjoyed playing ball and reading with his classmates. Academically, he seemed interested in doing his math, and was less enthusiastic about his reading. I assume that different times and days he probably also enjoys doing the reading program. He is very comfortable around his teacher Michelle and seems to be adjusting to Caroline his new aide. I am extremely impressed with Joey’s resiliency in terms of his ability to adapt back to the Aspen school and he seems quite relaxed and comfortable at school. In addition, I was impressed with Joey’s ability to participate in his “base group,” he stayed focused and seemed interested in the content.

Hope this is helpful, let me know if I can be of anymore help.

Stem cell therapy for autism: James Wagner

My son James developed severe autistic symptomatology one month prior to his sixth birthday. The anguish and pain we felt as our family watched him disappear into the abyss of thoughtlessness is indescribable. All of the Physicians agreed that his regression was an autoimmune phenomenon. They counseled us on accepting James’ circumstance. We accepted what had happened however we never lost hope.

One evening we received a call from Dr. Lowe a physician that treated James. He said that “James needs to go to Panama and have adult stem cell therapy from the Stem Cell Institute.” We were extremely nervous going to a non US medical facility. We mustered up all of the courage we had and took James to Panama.

The initial round of stem cells significantly improved my son’s cognitive skills.

Once in Panama we were put at ease as the facilities were no different than those found in the finest United States hospitals. The initial round of stem cells significantly improved my son’s cognitive skills. Globally, his engagement and language production show marked improvement. Each day we see many subtle improvements like consistently smiling for pictures, allowing his sibling to blow out her birthday candles or understanding that Sunday comes before Monday.

We are going to bring James back to Panama and are extremely optimistic that he will continue on his current trajectory. It is truly remarkable that such a promising therapeutic intervention is not more widely available. We are extremely grateful to the Stem Cell Institute for transforming our hope into reality.

Stem cell therapy for autism: Luke Fields

We are doing fine I hope you are as well. We enjoyed getting to know you this summer. Luke is about the same. I have noticed some small changes however. He seems to have a better grasp on the concept of time; as in how longer before Thanksgiving break or when a school function is going to occur.

…his teachers have reported his behavior at school is very good and he is taking less medicine than he ever has.

He is also taking more interest in what he is wearing and how it looks. Academically no difference except his teachers have reported his behavior at school is very good and he is taking less medicine than he ever has. Behavior with family is generally a little better like when eating out a little calmer sometimes.
