Arroyo might undergo stem cell therapy

MANILA, Philippines - Former President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo might undergo stem cell therapy to improve her health, according to the alternative medicine facility in Tagaytay City that the Pampanga lawmaker visited Thursday.

Arroyo came to the facility complaining of difficulty in swallowing because of a bulge in her throat, according to a statement from the Green 8 Young Health & Wellness Center.

Her voice has also changed and she is losing weight because she can't swallow solid food. She also has angina, the center said.

Arroyo also complained of continuing neck and back pain.

"Our center is accepting her for possible stem cell therapy," the alternative medicine facility said. "The stem cell therapy is... strongly considered."

It said the Arroyo can undergo such therapy in the Tagaytay center while her physical therapy will continue at the Veterans Memorial Medical Center 4 times a week.

The Pampanga lawmaker is seeking treatment at the center through her sister, Cielo Macapagal-Salgado.

The center said Salgado was previously diagnosed with a cancerous lump in her breast.

"She consulted several doctors and was subsequently subjected to a myrad of treatment procedures. These, however, did not produce the desired results. When she came to our center she was cured of her cancer," it claimed.
