Woman swears by Multiple Sclerosis remedy

IT IS expensive and controversial and the medical community is still divided about its success, but Jenni Saunders is living proof Russia's controversial stem cell treatment program can work.

The Kawana Island resident spent 30 days in Moscow in December receiving stem cell treatment she hoped would help provide some relief from the multiple sclerosis that has been slowly crippling her body for 30 years.

It has been 10 weeks since Ms Saunders' return and she is ecstatic with the results.

The 60-year-old can literally jump for joy.

It's been "years" since Ms Saunders was able to lift both feet off the ground, so the small leap in the air is a giant leap for her.

"I have seen several improvements in the last nine to 10 weeks," she said.

"The pins and needles in my hands and feet are virtually gone and I can stand up with my eyes closed.

"This might not sound like a lot to many people, but to me it is significant."

She says she is the oldest Australian to have attempted the $60,000 treatment, excluding the cost of flights.

The stem cell treatment is not approved for MS sufferers in Australia and people like Ms Saunders have to raise money to pay for the trip, even though it is available in other parts of the world.
