Just wanted to give you an update on JD. JD had a stroke either shortly before birth or right after, causing left sided paralysis along with other common stroke symptoms, such as slurred speech and seizures. JD was 30 yrs old when he had 2 rounds of stem cell theraphy, he is now off all seizure medication, has lost 40 lbs, and was seen by the eye Dr, today and has had a 40% improvement in his eyesight. The Dr. was amazed and so was JD, no more bi-focals…he had bi-focals since he was 13. I have also noticed that his speech pattern is alot smoother and flows better. Keep up the great work!
Stroke Testimonials from Our Stroke Patients
|Four days after I had a stroke my grandson took me to Dr. Steenblock’s in a wheelchair. I couldn’t walk, had slurred speech and my right side was paralyzed. I went into the hyperbaric unit thinking I’d sleep, but the oxygen woke me up. Then I began taking a magazine into the hyperbaricunit and it took me a week to read it. By the last treatment I read that magazine cover to cover in two hours. I measured my progress by how normal my functions became. Today I feel ten years younger, and actually feel better than I have in 20 years. I have lost weight, and gotten my blood pressure under control.~Ed
I had a stroke on June 19, 2004. After a four-day stay at Hoag Hospital, they handed me a cane and said goodbye. They treated me as if I did something wrong by having a stroke. They said maybe in six months to a year, I would get back the 70% loss of strength on my right side. After some research, I found Dr. Steenblock and you. He put me in the hyperbaric chamber the first day I came in. Your kindness of talking me through the oxygen process helped me overcome my claustrophobia. After the first treatment in the HBO chamber my strength returned to about 90%…I continue my rapid progress. George you are a healer.
A Stroke Ten Years Ago “I’m Still Here”
Dale Hartley suffered a stroke ten and a half years ago. Dale had heard about Dr. Steenblock’s program on the radio. He was as thrilled then as today that Dr. Steenblock had something more to offer than conventional medicine. He and his wife Audrey came to Dr. Steenblock’s clinic to undergo the stroke program. When Dale arrived at the clinic he began the full program of chelation and hyperbaric oxygen therapy, and as he tells it, “my sister had a stroke three years after me; she didn’t come to Dr. Steenblock. Unfortunately, she’s gone- I’m still here.”
Like many who suffer a massive stroke, with such an insult to the brain, to just “still be here” is a miracle in itself. But Dale and his wife Audrey wanted more. They did their research and concluded they wanted to try umbilical cord stem cells in Mexico.
About two and a half years ago Dale had umbilical cord stem cells. He believes they made him stronger.
Then recently, he and Audrey learned about Dr. Steenblock’s Personalized Regenerative Medicine and the use of your own bone marrow stem cells. They excitedly packed up their precious little Bianca, and made the drive down from Malibu (where they live) to have this procedure done. Audrey had it done as well.
With a big bright smile, Dale will tell you that after having the bone marrow stem cells the first time his eyesight improved,and both of his knees (which hadn’t been”working” he said), were back to “almost normal”. In addition, his hip joint was back to normal, and he believes he has better balance when walking.
Audrey says that her knee problems (the meniscus) were getting signs of arthritis, and she also wanted to make sure she didn’t lose the strength of her grip to arthritis. She has noticed after her bone marrow stem cells that her constant sinus drip was nearly gone.
Both Dale and Audrey did bone marrow stem cells twice, six weeks apart. Both report a resounding success, and when asked if they’d do it again, they’ll tell you, “Absolutely!”
Our months here in Mission Viejo have been very enjoyable. Dr. Steenblock and his devoted staff have worked hard as a team to bring about the healing and restoration that each patient is hoping for. The physical therapists, the the HBOT – have been great. We feel sad to leave. We will recommend the center to anyone who has been stricken with a stroke. It’s a complete program in a wonderful location, great staff, and a doctor with a heart for people. His main objective is to help his patients get well. Bill is feeling much better, is walking good, and has benefited much from being there.

“What I got was Outstanding Medical Treatment for my Stroke!”
I came to this clinic hopeful of a miracle. That did not happen. What I got was outstanding medical treatment for my stroke. That treatment has enabled me to increase my body strength by 300% and has greatly enhanced my ability to begin walking. The treatment has also reinforced my confidence to accept my stroke as a fact of life and to go out into the public forum once again. I am most thankful that a treatment program specifically designed for stroke victims is available. It is shameful that a program like Dr. Steenblock’s is not readily available within the medical community of the United States.

We came for HBO therapy with hopes of a miracle that mom could use her right hand again, the hand paralyzed for 2-1/2 years. After 7 weeks of therapy, we got the beginning of movement in her paralyzed right hand. We got an improvement in balance and walking in over all health, in speech and sociability. She can shrug her right shoulder and give your hand a strong squeeze. Small miracles. Miracles to build on. Thank you for starting it all. Mom’s comment to anyone who asks about HBO: ” Go for it. It’s worth the trip and effort.” I agree.
My wife, Teresa, has completed the 60 day program recommended by Dr. Steenblock, which consisted of hyperbaric oxygen treatments, physical therapy, electrical stimulation, biofeedback and dietary supplements. Overall, Teresa has made very significant progress: Her right leg is much stronger and walking is vastly improved. Her speech is considerably better. She has more energy and stamina. Normal feelings of sensations have returned to parts of her face, neck and torso. Above all, I have appreciated the deep and personalized attention and vigorous medical supervision provided by Dr. Steenblock.
Dolores came to the clinic from Washington state for Dr. Steenblock’s stroke recovery program. This included hyperbaric oxygen therapy, physical therapy, and biofeedback therapy. Dolores has improved each day ins spite of all the complications (physical and mental) she had during the 60 day program. Dolores has had significant improvement. She walks better, and her mental capacity has certainly gotten better. We are very happy with every aspect of her treatment. Thank God that we have found this medical center and someone like Dr. David Steenblock who cares.

I am very satisfied with the care and treatment of my mother at the center. The atmosphere is more than a medical center it is positive, loving and has a family feeling. The whole staff is not only concerned with the patient, but is very understanding and supportive of the care givers.
Dr. David Steenblock and his efficient staff have provided me with excellent hyperbaric oxygenation therapy. The staff is friendly, accommodating and pleasant. This reflects on the faces of the many ailing patients who attend. It was especially gratifying to see serious stroke cases demonstrating and extolling the virtues of this therapy.
Senator Robert Hagan and Senator Anthony Latell: Ohio needs legislation that would establish Ohio’s recognition of Alternative Medical Treatment Programs. We need you on the front lines to help lead the charge! Too often, the AMA, the FDA and the nation’s insurance carriers vilify alternative methodology of various treatments for established illnesses or medical conditions. One such program currently used in California by Dr. David Steenblock utilizes alternative treatment of stroke and other brain damage. The results achieved by Dr. Steenblock are often miraculous.

After your program Russ’s leg does not seem to buckle anymore. He now puts his full body weight on both legs due to right hip being stronger. His right arm relaxes easier and appears straighter. He feels hunger again. While lying down, he can put his right arm straight up over his head any time of the day. His right eyelid is more relaxed and normal-looking. His voice diction has increased in clarity – can even sing with increased endurance. His gait is more controlled. More focused ability in general – physical, emotional and mental.

Dr. Steenblock is to be Commended for his work with Stroke Survivors!
Dr. Steenblock is to be commended for his work with stroke survivors. All of my doctors said that there was nothing that could be done for me, but after only 12 visits to Dr. Steenblock, I noticed improvements in my condition.
I want to thank you for your contribution to Teresa’s recovery. The program you have developed is exceptionally good and the staff you recruited is competent and very pleasant.
“A Real God Send for People with Stroke”
We feel that this program has given us hope where none existed before. We also feel that this treatment is the coming thing and a real God-send for people with stroke.

I am doing well so far and want to thank you for the wonderful time I had at your clinic and your personal care for me.
This is just a heart-felt recommendation concerning my patient Richard B. We have been attending the Hyperbaric Clinic for some months now.The laughter and friendship has meant so much to my patient.
Here’s wishing you all a New Year filled with love, laughter and happiness. I’ve been doing the “therapy thing” 3x per week. Things are progressing oh so slowly, but none-the-less progressing. I can now stand up (in a frame) for an hour. I can remember a time, not so long ago when I’d freak out after a few minutes, all the while holding on to mom for dear life. Now it’s easy. My doctor says I should start walking soon..and that I’m 365 days closer to walking than I was last year at this time.
I want to give you an update on Stan Lee’s progress since he left your center three weeks ago. We have been very pleased with the progress Stan is making. As you know, I came to you with three main goals: For Stan to stop throwing up; for him to stop seeing double; and for his dizziness to go away. I felt that all of these were caused by a malfunction in his brain. As you are well aware, the last two goals were achieved about half way through the program, but the throwing up continued on throughout the 60 day program. I had heard that the oxygenation process would continue for some time after the treatments were stopped. This appears to be true, for Stan has not thrown up now for three weeks.
I have progressed from wheelchair to walking. I am really thankful to the clinic – meeting everyone helped my progress. I would like to thank Dr. Steenblock, Noyemy and the rest of the staff.
When Ron saw the sign on the wall his eyes filled with tears “I can read that sign!” Nancy said, read it to me! Ron’s reply was, “I can’t talk now!!” Thank you Dr. Steenblock and your great staff!
Ron & Nancy
Tragic as the situation has been that brought us to this place, my Jean and I have been impressed by the staff’s positive “glow”. My thanks to each for the positive therapy that we have received.
I am requested by His Imperial Majesty Oba Okunade Sijuwade Olubuse II, the Oluaiye and Ooni of Ife, to thank you most sincerely for your care and attention during his attendance and treatment at your clinic.

We’ve had a very positive experience at the clinic. John has improved in many areas, including speech and walking. When we came there 3 months ago, John was not able to move his right leg on his own to walk. Now, with the help of a brace, he can walk about 100-150 feet. His speech is much more conversational. He initiates conversation and offers many insights that are verbalized. He has a more positive outlook and is learning to handle stress very well. Thank you for all your help!!!

I am writing this with my right hand which I couldn’t do before I came. The staff is very special. They have given me reason to hope again.
If I would have only known that Dr. David Steenblock and his Clinic existed, I would have insisted that the hundreds of thousands of dollars that were spent elsewhere would be spent on treatment at Dr. Steenblock’s Institute for the healing of traumatic brain injuries, instead of the maintenance which my husband received until he came here.
We both appreciated your many kindnesses to my husband, and I know your treatments improved his health so that we had almost two more years together that we would not have had without them.
Still in therapy – it gets a little better each day. Still optimistic and expecting wonderful things in the coming year.
Dr. Steenblock – Thank you for trying the untried, and proving it can work. Thank you and keep up the good work.
Nancy and Harold Hutsell
Dear friends: I’m in my own home at long last.
“I Read a Book Six Months Ago: The First since the Stroke!”
I read a book six months ago: the first since the stroke! I can read again! My brain is getting better; I couldn’t write two years ago; but I can write now. Three months after the stroke I was helpless. Now I’m much more self-reliant. P.S. I did a 1/2 triathlon this year!
From the day we arrived we felt completely “at home” – thanks to a terrific staff who are not only very skilled in what they do, but certainly know how to give a lot of TLC! In Just 4 weeks Roy is showing improvement. He definitely has more energy. He is sleeping much less and no longer needs his 2 hour daily nap. His memory and vision have improved some and he seems to have a more positive attitude than he did 4 weeks ago. We’re very impressed with Dr. Steenblock’s vast knowledge and his attention to detail. He goes that “extra mile” that you don’t find in most doctors today!
