Former President and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal Arroyo: Stem cell treatment

MANILA, PhilippinesLike her predecessor, former President and Pampanga lawmaker Gloria Macapagal Arroyo has turned to stem cell therapy in an effort to improve her health.

Arroyo said in her official Twitter account that she would have her fourth stem cell intravenous treatment with her alternative medicine doctor on Monday.

Arroyo said her treatment would involve cultured stem cells, and it would be much more modest in price than the one coming from sheep or ones own body.

A close friend and ally of Arroyo, Quezon Representative Danilo Suarez, confirmed that the President has started stem cell therapy, and that she told him that the stem cells she has been using did not come from lamb placenta, and was the less costly form of stem cell treatment.

If you have a lot of health problems, you will try such things, Suarez said on Sunday.

Suarez said he has even filed a resolution to investigate the practice of stem cell treatments in the country, as well as the claims being made about it, considering that it has been gaining popularity.

The public needs to be better informed about it. It might have setbacks that we need to know about, he said.

The therapy involves the use of fresh cells, which are injected into the body to regenerate cells to treat illnesses or reverse aging.
