Bone Marrow Stem Cell Therapy
The latest discovery in the world of natural medical therapies is STEM CELLS! You have within you a powerful set of tools to repair your body and keep you healthy. The future of medicine is NOT better drugs but better use and application of your body’s own stem cells. As of now stem cell-rich tissue can be extracted from your hip with virtually no discomfort and used to help restore your body. This opens up an exciting new horizon in terms of preventing and treating disease and tackling the symptoms of aging – if not aging itself. Already, patients are returning to Dr. Steenblock for additional bone marrow treatments because they are seeing that their gray or white hair is turning back to its original color. Their skin not infrequently looks younger too and they report having more energy and less arthritic aches and pains!
Over the past two years, we have done over 1000 bone marrow procedures with much success. Contrary to the conventional painful methods used, we have developed an almost painless approach to extract bone marrow and the hidden trove of stem cells contained within. Using the patient’s own bone marrow rather than someone else’s has totally eliminated the risk of graft versus host disease and the need for toxic chemotherapy to suppress the immune system. Since we are merely transferring stem cells from your bones into your blood stream there is never an allergic or rejection type of reaction since these are your own cells. The results have at times been phenomenal! Some patients with memory loss are beginning to remember more after their bone marrow transplant. Some patients with macular degeneration are reporting better eye sight. Even some of the patients with traumatic brain injuries are able to move their legs again. Many of those with sports injuries, osteoarthritis or a torn rotator cuff are reporting relief from pain within days of their treatment. One person had a heart attack and then ten days later came to us for a bone marrow transplant. He was strong enough to return to work in about half the usual time – to the astonishment of his cardiologist. Even some patients with genetic disorders are showing improvements after several transplants. The November issue of the Townsend Letter for Physicians and Patients will have my article of mine on what happened when I treated a person with Huntington’s disease. In-a-word with each bone marrow transplant he received, he became stronger and more coordinated. Now he is taking his beautiful wife out dancing once again!
What is the Secret Behind Bone Marrow Stem Cells?
What is the secret behind the successes we’ve seen with the bone marrow treatments? While bone marrow transplants have been done for the past 50 years for cancer patients and those with blood disorders, this procedure is different because it is being used for neurological conditions as well as other health problems. We use your own bone marrow and instead of isolating one type of stem cell, we take whole tissue which contains a rich variety of stem and progenitor cells. The bone marrow is rich in two different types of stem cells: One type turns into blood cells, blood vessels, and cells of the immune system and are called hematopoietic stem cells (heme meaning blood-related). The other type of stem cell is support stem cells that produce bone, fat, tendons, skin, muscles and connective tissue. Recent research shows that these hematopoietic and the support stem cells are also able to divide into all types of brain cells, including glial cells (white matter) and neurons (gray matter). The bone marrow also contains retinal progenitor cells and several patients have actually commented on how their vision improved as a side benefit of their bone marrow procedure.
Other Amazing Effects of Bone Marrow Stem Cells
In regard to its anti-aging effects, the bone marrow contains primitive progenitor cells that are associated with the early development of the fetus. These primitive cells reside dormant deep inside your bones and sport a genetic profile from your early development. When these primitive cells are released into your system, there can be a revitalization of your body that physiologically “sets the clock back” in-a-way. Several patients have reported that the bone marrow transplants have also improved their sexual performance. This side effect is thought to be the result of stem and progenitor cells repairing sex organs as well as other tissues.
What does this mean for you? Your bone marrow stem cells have the potential to repair damaged tissues and organs. Whether you want an “anti-aging” treatment or you need the procedure to repair damage in your joints, liver, kidneys, heart or brain, a bone marrow transplant is an efficient and sure way to flood your body with stem cells.
