A new stem cell therapy for autism promises to be a blessing

A new stem cell therapy seems to hold a lot of promise for children with autism. Those who have used it are happy. Many are hoping it will prove to be a wave of change for children with autism.

One of the children who has benefitted is 14-year-old Sahil Navneet. Sahil used to be violent, have mood swings, and behave in a very rude manner. His father, Sujeet Kumar, decided to try out stem cell therapy.

Sahil went for stem cell therapy to the NeuroGen Brain and Spine Institute, in Mumbai. The results have proved to be overwhelming. His family says the therapy has made Sahil calmer, less hyperactive, and obedient. He is more willing to his father’s instructions.

Since the therapy, Sahil’s attention span and ability to sit at one place has improved. His family says Sahil has become a new person after the stem cell therapy.
