G-Therapy and Dystonia

This article appeared here about 8 years ago

This is just an extract from a major article. The photographs show a dramatic improvement....

Improvements note aftet taking G-Therapy for 7 months:

Seven months after G-therapy, he has shown undoubted global improvement which is as surprising as his first MRI scan done in Feb’99 which shows a midbrain tumor with gross hydrocephalus! Unaware of this diagnosis, he was on G-Therapy from June’98 and he has improved all the same.

His speech is very clear, fast and intelligent.
He is able to eat dry snacks with own hands.
He is able to read to some extent.
His rigidity is markedly reduced.
Involuntary movements/dystonias are negligible.
He can come to sit on own, sitting balance is remarkable and he is also moving in the entire house by bottom shifting. Can maintain quadruped position, momentarily.
Though there is still dysmetria and tremors. Weight bearing is not possible on the feet.
Left eye ptosis much better than before.
Also the wasting has disappeared and there is significant weight gain.

Hemogram, Liver Function Tests, Renal Function Tests-done in Oct’94 and Feb 1999 are all normal.
CT scan chest Oct’94-No focal abnormality in the thymus.
Motor and sensory nerve conduction studies in Oct’94 and Feb’99-Normal
MRI Scan Brain Feb’99-Brainstem- midbrain area tumor with severe hydrocephalus.

This is an unusual case of dystonia-chorea due to midbrain tumor with hydrocephalus pressing on the basal ganglia structures.

The patient showed gradual deterioration of CNS symptoms and signs from Feb’94 to June’98. He began with eye symptoms and deteriorated to altered consciousness, severe dystonias with gross emaciation inspite of a voracious appetite. The patient has shown dramatic improvement in functional mobility, speech and obvious gain in muscle mass (with normalizing of appetite) after June’98.

Recent observation 2002:

Amit has improved phenomenaly in motor and mental functions. He can now walk, run and sing. His memory has improved and has joined the school now. For his parents it is the rebirth of their son.

We are doing his MRI scans every 6 months and his mid brain tumor and hydrocephalus are not showing any change in size. It is very important to note that no other treatment was given to him for his mid brain tumor or hydrocephalus like shunting, radiation or excision. This clearly indicates the role of G therapy in his improvements.
