Gloria Arroyo to have stem cell treatment Monday

Former President and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will undergo stem cell therapy on Monday with an alternative medicine doctor.

Arroyo, in a post on her Twitter account Saturday morning, said Monday’s session will be her fourth intravenous treatment.

“This Monday I will have my fourth stem cell intravenous treatment with my alternative medicine doctor,” she said.

Also she said, “It’s cultured stem cell and much more modest in price than the one coming from sheep or one’s own body.”

But she did not elaborate on how much the treatment will cost.

Stem cell therapy is type of intervention strategy that introduces new adult stem cells into damaged tissue in order to treat disease or injury.

Earlier this week, Arroyo said she continues to search for alternative solutions to an anatomic problem that prompted her to be rushed to a government hospital last month.

Arroyo said she had seen at least two “alternative medicine practitioners,” and has initiated communication with a “neurocervical spine purist.”

She said she also had her thrice-weekly therapy at the Veterans Memorial Medical Center (VMMC) in Quezon City Thursday.

Arroyo underwent treatment last August for an anatomic problem that caused her to choke on her food.
