STEM cell therapy is being eyed to cure the neck and back pains and other illnesses of former president and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Arroyo, alternative medicine doctor Antonia Park said yesterday.

Arroyo went to Parks Green and Young Health and Wellness Center in Tagaytay City yesterday morning for cleansing and alternative healing.

A guard at the La Vista Subdivision in Quezon City, who requested anonymity, said Arroyo left the subdivision at around 7:30 a.m., accompanied by a few staff and a personal nurse. She rode a white Nissan Patrol and her convoy included a gray Toyota Land Cruiser and a police escort.

Arroyo was granted bail Wednesday by a Pasay City court after finding that the electoral sabotage case against her was weak. She posted a P1-million cash bond.

Stem cell treatment involves the introduction of new adult stem cells into the damaged tissue in order to treat a disease or injury. The ability of new cells to regenerate is seen as having significant potential to replace diseased areas of the body, with minimal risk of rejection and side effects.

Park, in a statement distributed to the media, said Arroyo complained of difficulty in swallowing with choking due to her bulge along the posterior pharyngeal wall, together with a change of her voice and losing weight due to her difficulties of swallowing the food (solid) and angina as well as continuous neck and back pain.

Thats why our center is accepting her for possible stem cell therapy and another treatment of pain management and giving natural food by means of fresh fruit and vegetable juices for which management is warranted and which the stem cell therapy is contemplated and strongly considered, she said.

She said the stem cell therapy can be given by her clinic in Tagaytay while Arroyo can continue her physical therapy at the Veterans Memorial Medical Center four times a week.

Park said Arroyo can to go her district, referring to the second district of Pampanga, over the weekend provided she takes care to wear a brace and avoid talking too much so as to protect the bulging interior of the throat, and provided she resumes physical therapy as soon as possible.
