Stem cell therapy shows some success for multiple sclerosis.
Karin Boyd is a 46-year-old Traverse City woman who has been battling multiple sclerosis for about 11 years.
“It’s where your own immune system attacks itself,” said Boyd.
She says she’s tried taking multiple medications to ease her symptoms but she recently discovered another treatment, and now she wants to share her success with others.
She was first diagnosed in 2005.
“I was missing a out on a lot,” Boyd said. “I was tired all the time, I couldn’t get through the day, I would have to go home and take a nap. I wasn’t getting the cooking and cleaning done like I felt like I should.”
She says she constantly had numbness in her hands and feet.
Despite multiple medications, she even started to lose the ability to use her right leg in 2010.
“I couldn’t walk. I had to have a walker or wheelchair or cane to walk,” Boyd said.
