  • 03- Scleroderma - Auto-hemotherapy Dr. Luiz Moura - English subtitles 03- Scleroderma: On 10/09/1976, I was the head of the medical clinic of the Cardoso Fontes Hospital, and they had a consultant dermatologist there, Dr Ryssia Alvarez Floriao. A lady who had been unable to walk for 8 months was hospitalised. Dr Ryssia carried out three biopsies and send them to Dr Gloria Moraes head of Pathological Anatomy, who gave her medical opinion: terminal phase of scleroderma. Then Dr. Ryssia decided to give a lesson. Every Monday we had a lesson on cases that were not routine. And this was a very rare case. Scleroderma is an autoimmune disease that is not frequent. A very good lesson was given and I learned a lot because I didn't know anything about scleroderma, I knew it from books, but I had never seen a scleroderma patient. When the lesson finished, Dr. Ryssia asked the nurse to take the patient away. I understood, now was the time to say what could be done for the patient. You asked to take the patient away, so she couldnt hear. She said: It is true. There is nothing I can do for this patient. I asked Ryssia: Will you pass this patient to me, so I can apply a technique which is not usual and is called auto-hemotherapy? She laughed and said: You know that I arrived from the USA in May. There I was a resident doctor in a clinic for all the cases of scleroderma from all over the USA. So the clinic was nothing other than a repository of scleroderma patients. There was nothing more that could be done. Then what do you think you can do? I said: Look ...

  • Scleroderma Disease Cure bit.ly So, what is the scleroderma prognosis, what is the average life expectancy, and what can you expect to happen in the future? Also, is there a cure for this disease, and what it is? Read on to find out. Diffuse scleroderma is the most dangerous and harmful, and usually affects internal organs. It spreads much more rapidly than localized scleroderma, which makes it difficult to control. If you have diffuse scleroderma, the average life expectancy will be about 20-30 years from now. Although the expectancy is high, the symptoms of the disease make if difficult for patients to lead a normal life. That's why if you have scleroderma, no matter what type, it is important to treat it. There is a new natural treatment, which has proven to be extremely effective in the curing of scleroderma, and was discovered by a former scleroderma sufferer.

  • What is scleroderma
  • My Life with Scleroderma Scleroderma is a rare, chronic autoimmune disease which afflicts an estimated 300000 Americans. Scleroderma is classified as an autoimmune disease. This means that a persons immune system works against itself. The normal immune system protects the body by fighting off foreign invaders such as viruses and infections. In an autoimmune disease, the immune system mistakes a persons own tissues as foreign invaders and sets up a protective attack that backfires to cause problems. Only 5000 children in America are diagnosed with Scleroderma. I was one of them. Patients of Scleroderma are always welcome to contact me.
