have son aging 9 years, he is suffering from DMD , In his early age he were walking but from last two years he stooped walking.Even he can't turn his body on bed. I mate so many doctors and then i came to know through newspapers that Dr.BS Rajput,Mumbai(orthopedic Surgeon) has performed stem cell transplantaion for DMD and being successful or may helpful to come out.I personally met with him he said that DMD can be cured after stem cell transplantation.Cost of treatment is bit expensive say around 10-11 lacs.if you are resourceful enough then one chance can be taken.I am taking too.(B.K.Sinha-9967584205)

Dear Mr Sinha, the stem cell transplantation claim by so called Dr BS Rajput is totally false and he is just aiming to cheat you out of your hard earned money which you might have to use a later point where stem cell therapy really is perfected.

Dear anyone,
my grandson d-o-b 11.02.2006 diagnosed DMD early this year. Confronted with an undesirable unfortunate situation,we tried to consult known specialists to learn of the latest on the treatment of this dreaded disease.To the best of my knowledge no definite cure appears to have been evolved so far but in view of the concerted efforts by the researchers/specialists in Europe, USA,Australia some possible cure to this genetic disorder is only a matter of time.
Anyone faced with such a situation is advised to ensure:
1.Preventive measures against possible injuries to the child.
2.Feed diet low in fat but high in essential nutrients. 3.Supplement diet with vit C,E, calcium and selenium.
4.Maintain normal mobility avoiding strenuous physical exercise. 5.My own observation reveals that,Ayurvedic medicine from Swami Ram Dev's estt.Haridwar,lowers muscle demage by about 30%.
6.Extend all possible love and affection to the child without promoting in him the sense of protection/inferiority complex.
7.Last but not the least,encourage him to perform and develop a sense of realization, and await the nature take its own course while preparing for the inevitable.

its going to be okay just keep on having faith and believe that God can do all things even when it seems impossible.He sees favor in those that put Him first. so do not be discourage but have hope. God would never put you in a situation where yu cannot handle it.it only feels like yu cant handle it. Read psalm 91. when i feel stess out i read this scripture and it helps me big time.
