If you did not hear the show August 5, 2017, I highly recommend that you listen to it. You will hear astonishing recovery stories from a debilitating back problem, bone on bone knees, Parkinson’s, kidney failure and even stage 4 metastatic breast cancer. Since stem cells target any area with damage and inflammation, regeneration of shoulder problems, elbow problems and meniscus tears have become routine. There are answers to more questions in my May 2, 2019 post.
Stem cell therapy uses the same power that created the body to restore it and foster regeneration. Stem cells are a mind-blowing miracle of life. These generic cells seek out areas of the body that are inflamed or damaged and then become whatever type of specialized cell is needed at that location. They also stimulate other cells to do the right thing. The stem cells discussed here are from human umbilical cords with which there are no ethical concerns. (We are actually making a health-enhancing use of what would otherwise be medical waste.) I will talk about less desirable stem cell sources below.
When we are born, we are endowed with an enormous number of stem cells. That is because they are needed to flood the baby’s body, building tissues and organs of all types. Unfortunately, as we age, we have fewer of these cells and therefore have a harder time rebounding from stresses and injury. By the time we are teenagers, we have only 10% as many stem cells as we did originally. By the time we are age 50, we only have ¼ as many as a teen. And on it goes.
Our own stem cells can be extracted with types of surgery (into blood marrow or liposuction). In addition to the well known surgical risks, the cells from those sources are relatively scarce. I also wonder if our aged stem cells haven’t accumulated damage like our other cells and might be less vigorous. That is why the preferred approach is where doctors inject brand new stem cells.
Is this some wacky new idea? Far from it. If you search “stem cells” on pubmed.gov, the website returns over 330,000 scientific articles. (The research started in the early 1900’s.) To narrow it down, search for “stem cells kidney” and you will still see about 7,000 articles. This shows how excited scientists are about stem cells, however, I think that the most exciting for me are the success stories like the ones discussed on my radio interviews…especially the one listed at the top.
It is a real breakthrough that a system (very much like a blood bank) has been developed to collect, safety-screen, protect and distribute umbilical cord blood. It is a byproduct of that system a source has been created for the umbilical cords themselves. That is the richest source of stem cells in terms of numbers, but they are also the most vibrant and therefore offer maximum regeneration power. There is no concern about rejection, allergy or introduction of DNA from others. From what I’ve found, Infinity cells have the highest level of quality control.
As one of my listeners/readers, you can receive a no-pressure, no charge consultation to find out if your health problem might be helped with regenerative medicine using Human Umbilical Cord Stem Cell Therapy. That consultation and often free x-rays as well have a value of $250, but there is no charge—if you tell them Martie (or Healthy by Nature) sent you. Call Dr. Darcy Brunk’s office at 972.303.0683. They can also tell you if there is a doctor in your area (Doctors interested in offering this method can also call the same number.)
Nature is a fabulous healer, but sometimes we ought to give her a hand.
