Medical History:
Koh is a 20 year old man and the onset of his disease happened 18 years ago (October 2010) and came on suddenly, without any obvious causes. From then on, he suffered repeated attacks; the EEG showed he had epileptic seizures. He received anti-epileptic treatment, but the seizures still occurred, and the seizures took on different forms, including generalized tonic-clonic seizures (GTCS), absence seizures, atonic seizures, simple partial seizures and complex partial seizures of automatism. There were multiple gouges in his tongue, without bite wounds. There was no incontinence. Koh was diagnosed with LGS Epilepsy syndrome. He received anti-epileptic treatment, but the medications were ineffective. The seizures occurred 3-4 times each day, his cognitive abilities decreased, his responses were slow, and could only occasionallyabide by his mother's simple instructions.
During the examination of his nervous system, Koh was alert, but with a mental deficiency, and lagged in his responses. He was able to make some sounds but had little autonomy in his language, most of the time he was not able to be understood by others. Koh was unable to cooperate with the memory, calculation or orientation tests. He couldn't cooperate with the cranial nerve examination. He had large amounts of salivation. The muscle strength of all four limbs was level 4. The muscle tone and muscle volume were normal. The tendon reflexes of all four limbs were normal. The bilateral cremasteric reflex was normal when elicited; the bilateral abdominal reflexes were not elicited. The bilateral palmomental reflex was positive, the bilateral Hoffmann's sign, Rossilimo's sign and Babinski's sign was negative. Koh was unable to cooperate with the examination of his sensation and coordinated movements. There were no signs of meningeal irritation.

We initially gave Koh a complete examination, and he was diagnosed with LGS Epilepsy syndrome, fatty liver. He received anti-epileptic medication and had his blood lipid levels regulated. During this time, we also administered the self stem cells activation treatment to repair the damage to the neurons. He received treatment to improve his blood circulation in order to increase the blood supply to the damaged neurons and to nourish them.

Now that the treatment plan has been completed, Koh's gait has improved when he walks. The extorsion of the toes is not as severe anymore. He has normal facial expressions and his language ability has improved. He can make longer sentences now and can speak as many as 13 words. Koh's salivation has decreased and he has fewer epileptic seizures. The EEG shows better results than before, the blood lipid level is normal.

Koh's mother is satisfied with the treatment, and said: "Koh has a better gait when he walks; and he has a better awareness of his walking. He speaks more words now and can better express his thoughts. What is very nice also is that Koh can now control the epileptic seizures when they break out."
