MANILA, Philippines – Former President and now Pampanga Rep. Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo will undergo on Monday, September 10, her fourth stem cell treatment to help correct her spinal condition.

“This Monday, I will have my fourth stem cell intravenous treatment with my alternative medicine doctor,” Arroyo posted on her Twitter account @gmarroyo on Saturday, September 8.



She did not provide more details.

After the former President was granted bail by a Pasay City Court last July, she contacted alternative medicine doctor Antonia Park, who owns a wellness center in Tagaytay City, and this week Arroyo started searching for another specialist who can correct her spinal condition.

Arroyo still has physical therapy sessions 3 times a week at the Veterans Memorial Medical Center, where the Pampanga Rep. had spent 8 months in hospital arrest over electoral sabotage charges in connection with the 2007 midterm polls.

Dr. Roberto Anastacio, her physician at the Makati Medical Center, earlier said the treatment for Arroyo’s condition cannot be found in the Philippines.

However, the former President is prevented from traveling abroad by 3 hold departure orders issued by the courts in relation to electoral sabotage, plunder and graft cases filed against her. –
