Ugandan patients suffering from chronical diseases including cancers could soon be relieved of the costly pains of flying out of the country for medical treatment, after a New Zealand based health products manufacturer revealed it is unveiling stem cell therapy.
Graeme Clegg, a New Zealand manufacturer said on Sunday that there is now hope for patients of chronical diseases to be treated in the country.
He was launching New Image International, a global manufacturer of health and nutrition products, in Mbarara district.
Founded in 1984 by Clegg himself, the firm has used research into the incredible health benefits of colostrum, nature’s first food, to create the Alpha Lipid™ technology, which helps the body absorb all the goodness colostrum has to offer.
According to Clegg, a one month doze of colostrum drug treats cancer and sight challenges to the human body.
While speaking at the event to unveil New Image International, Clegg revealed that he designed the New Image health science project in Uganda after realizing that most Africans grapple with non communicable diseases.
“I joined the cancer fight when it started ruining my parents,” said Clegg.
He says the project has so far traversed in 26 countries including China, Indonesia, Singapore, Malaysia, Vietnam, South Africa, Zambia, Nigeria, Uganda, Peru and many others.
“We have been in many developed countries but we are just pioneering here in Uganda. Colostrum is very user friendly to neutralize cancer cells,” he explained.
Dr. Geoffrey Ayebazibwe a pharmacologist (drug specialist) at Mbarara University of Science and Technology (MUST) and Kampala International University confirmed the effectiveness of stem cells after numerous tests on Ugandan patients.
He says the stem cells are the latest on Ugandan market that can treat non communicable diseases.
“Stem cells is the latest way we can help our bodies to prevent all the non communicable diseases like high blood pressure, joint problems, stroke, and we are sure the only hope for the doctors now is stem cells”.
Stem-cell therapy is the use of stem cells to treat or prevent a disease or condition. Bone marrow transplant is the most widely used stem-cell therapy, but some therapies derived from umbilical cord blood are also in use.
He said that Ugandan patients are guaranteed stem cells and that the service will be officially launched in Kampala on Tuesday this week.
“We are lucky that we have been able to go through all the processes and we are now able to have New Image™ operating in Mbarara and on Tuesday,” he said
He appealed to Ugandans to take precaution on their nutrition and to stop eating factory foods. Instead, he advised on eating greens and vegetables .
One of the patients, Kizza John Baptist, disclosed to SoftPower News that he applied stem cells to his body and recovered his lost sight.
