Heart Disease



Stem cells have the ability to pinpoint and target damaged areas of the body. After that one area has been revitalized, a series of biological events will follow, which will eventually heal the whole muscle or organ. Such is the case when stem cell therapy is used to treat patients with heart disease or heart failure.

 

Heart failure patients who have been treated with stem cell therapy have shown positive developments after receiving treatment. Cardiovascular function and ejection fraction have siginificantly improved allowing the patient to be stronger physically and have more stamina. Tests show that their walking distance have increased with stress test results showing positive improvements just after 4 months after the first stem cell treatment was administered.

 

Heart Muscle Cell (Myocyte) loss in ischemic conditions irreversibly impair cardiac function. Several cell therapies have been shown to reduce apoptosis and improve myocardial injury.  However, to repair damage to cardiac tissue, it is essential to identify a source of stem cells that are able to regenerate cardiac myocytes.  Adipose-Derived Stem Cells have demonstrated a high degree of plasticity and have undergone differentiaton to cardiac tissues.

 

Reported in Cardiology Today's 2011 issue; After just 2 intravenous treatments, patients treated for ischemic heart disease with stem cells derived from adipose fat showed improvements of damaged tissue within 6 months. An associated peak in oxygen consumption was also achieved.

 

We have adipose stem cell therapy readily available.  We work in consultation with cardiologists to achieve the best result for the patient. We make sure the patients underlying conditions are stable before proceeding with treatment.

 

We use only an autologous approach (providing the patient with their own stem cells to eliminate the risk of rejection by the heart). We do not use embryos, hormones or chemical therapies during this procedure. The technique does not require general anesthesia. An over-night hospital stay may be required for high-risk patients.

Diabetes Mellitus Type II



Diabetes is currently one of the most widespread diseases, and its prevalence is rapidly growing around the world.

 

There are 2 forms of diabetes. In Type 2 Diabetes, the body becomes insensitive to and less able to produce insulin, a hormone made in the pancreas and needed to transport glucose from the bloodstream into body tissues. In Type 1 Diabetes, the pancreas is incapable of producing insulin entirely. More than 90% of diabetes case are of the type 2 variety.

 

In both forms of diabetes, unless treated, blood sugar will rise uncontrollably, and over time can lead to such complications as cardiovascular disease, kidney disease (nephropathy), circulatory problems, vision loss (retinopathy),nerve damage (neuropathy), cognitive decline and sexual dysfunction

 

In a three-year clinical study, stem cell therapy was administered to 29 people with Type 2 Diabetes.  Beginning at six months after the first treatment and continuing for the three years of the study, measures of blood sugar control and blood lipids (such as cholesterol) improved significantly, and insulin medication requirements were reduced.  Most interestingly, the number of patients suffering from diabetic retinopathy and diabetic neuropathy decreased dramatically. Additionally, four of 17 patients with diabetic nephropathy reversed their progression to an earlier stage.

 

Thanks to stem cell research, diabetes and even later stage Type 2 diabetes symptoms have been shown to be greatly reduced with diabetes stem cell treatment.

 

In 2006, the Global Stem Cell Network technique was proven to correct blood sugar normal levels with 6 weeks of the stem cell treatment for diabetes type 2. The primary indicator of rapid aging, Hemoglobin A1C was lowered by 50%.

Repeat applications of adipose (fat derived) stem cells proved to be the most effective treatment for diabetes type 2, offering an open window to make dietary changes, supplementation and exercise much more effective for long-term control of blood sugar.

 

In a US FDA study, 75% of the patients lowered medication levels and in 25% of the patients medications where replaced with supplementation and healthy lifestyle changes.

Liver Disease



The liver is considered a factory; and among its many functions: digestion, blood sugar control, blood clotting factors for healing, making amino acids, increase red blood cell growth, fat and cholesterol transport and the removal of waste and toxins, plus the metabolization of medications into their active ingredients.

 

The liver is the only organ in the body that can easily replace damaged cells, but if enough cells are lost, the liver may not be able to meet the needs of the body. This may lead to liver failure.

 

Cirrhosis is a term that describes permanent scarring of the liver. Normal liver cells are replaced by scar tissue that cannot perform liver function. Acute liver failure may be life threatening and one time deemed non-reversible, however stem cell regeneration has been proven most effective.

 

In fact alcoholism, cirrhosis, infectious Hepatitis, drug (steroid) or toxin exposure, and related genetic issues have been abated or reversed using stem cells.

 

The liver is a regenerative organ, but is limited in this ability depending on the reserve energy needed to heal and the host of responsibilities that must be attended to daily irregardless of this central organs ability to keep up the pace.

 

Liver disease can progress to cirrhosis and liver failure. Associated complications include increased risk of bleeding and infection, malnutrition and weight loss, decreased cognitive function over time and an increased risk of cancer.

 

We deliver simple, risk free, proven results in a holistic environment with the assistance of highly skilled professionals that understand the importance of personalized care. These cases require a unique customized approach to achieve the greatest results.

 

We offer extra-special attention in this area in order to make recent breakthroughs and advances known to the client and to assist them in taking advantage of the available leading edge options. We have proven results reversing the effects of Hepatitis, Cirrhosis and liver damage.

Kidney Disease



Through all kidney disease stages, stem cell treatment with your own stem cells can provide results.  The kidneys will release cytokines when they are injured. Stem cells can find the areas of injury because of these cytokines.  Then when the stem cells get to the area of injury they can differentiate into kidney specific cells.

 

Many kidney failure patients have spent huge amounts of time and effort with their doctors that practice all the "standard of care" treatments that have available to them and their hospitals. These patients eventually discover that in reality, their doctors just don't have a kidney disease "cure". Keeping things going as long as possible, with as few complications as possible, is the real goal.

 

When the kidneys become damaged, waste products and fluid can build up in the body causing swelling in ankles, vomiting, weakness, poor sleep and shortness of breath. Left untreated, diseased kidneys may eventually stop functioning completely. Loss of kidney function also causes other problems such as anemia, high blood pressure, acidosis, disorders of cholesterol and fatty acids and bone disease.

 

Chronic kidney disease is also referred to as kidney failure, or end-stage renal disease, wherein there is total or near total loss of kidney function. Most individuals in this stage of kidney disease need dialysis or transplantation to stay alive.

 

Stem Cell Therapy holds great promise for the future of the treatment and amelioration of Nephritis, failure and transplantation. Kidney improvement has been documented after the use of adipose derived stem cell therapy.

 

The procedure is performed under sterile operating conditions and fat will be harvested by manual liposuction and administered in the same setting without a need for expansion or adding new chemical therapies. PRP will be added to the stem cell application and then laser activated.

Erectile Dysfunction



Erectile dyfunction (ED) can be caused by various issues. It may be psychological or hormonal. It may also be due to poor blood circulation. Based on these issues, treatments for ED at present are usually stimulant- or hormone- based which have various side effects which includes, but not limited to, hypertension, stroke and heart diseases. In the long run, these drugs that gives short-term remedy to ED are not worth the risks.

 

Cedars-Sinai Medical Center researchers in Los Angeles said "it appears that there seems to be a high number of deaths and serious cardiovascular events that is associated with the use of viagra". They presented an analysis of 1,473 major adverse events that has been reported to the FDA at the American College of Cardiologists. Among the analysis, it was found that 522 people has died, mostly from heart attack.

 

Recent studies have demonstrated that local administration and intravenous therapy using stem cells are very effective in improving libido and blood circulation. The effects are both immediate and long-term. Autologous stem cell therapy doesn't have any side effects and there is no risk of overdose. In addition, the body does not reject the treatment since the stem cells that has been harvested for the treatment were taken from the same patient's body.

 

The stem cells used for the therapy are harvested from the patient's abdominal area. It will be returned to the patient through an IV drip after the stem cells have been activated through a specialized light source. Since the stem cells are taken from the patient's body, there is risk of rejection. The healing ability of stem cells can be increased by 100 to 200 times. It's YOUR stem cells put back into your body, not a pig's stem cells or someone else's stem cells.

 

Stem cells derived from adipose tissue (fat tissue) has been proven to increase blood flow and pressure in cases of Erectile Dysfunction. Fat stem cells have been shown to differentiate into endothelial cells and secrete vasculotrophic and neurotrophic factors.

 

The adipose (fat) derived stem cells migrate or implant near small blood vessels. Releasing growth factors that stimulate increased vascular regeneration, thereby increasing blood flow and penile pressure to improve erection.

Lung Disease



Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis, Emphysema and other lung diseases are just a few of the medical conditions that are long-term and are considered progressive diseases. Among other things, these diseases can shorten one's life span and can hinder the patient from enjoying various activities and experiences.

 

Patients who have lung diseases often complain of shortness of breath. Some may feel slightly suffocated and cannot get in enough air.

 

Stem cell therapy has proven to help ease these difficulties in patients who have lung diseases. Stem cells that have been activated are returned back to the patient, travel to the lungs, rejuvenates various parts of the respiratory system and helps re-oxygenate tissues, allowing the patient to breathe in easier.

 

Dr Buoros of Harvard Medical School has been using stem cell therapy to treat and allow patients who have terminal stage of Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis another shot at life. After receiving the treatment, patients who have emphysema have responded positively to the treatment and are showing an increase in forced volume capacity of the lungs. Smokers felt that 'they have a new lease on life' after the first stem cell therapy has been administered.

 

Obstructive Lung Disease is a category of Respiratory Disease and is one of the most common medical conditions worldwide. Tens-of-millions of people suffer from lung disease due to smoking, infections and genetic abnormalities. Lung disease can also occur due to malfunction in other systems like congestive heart failure.

 

Types of obstructive lung disease include; asthma, varied conditions of bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), cystic fibrosis, and emphysema. These are lung conditions that cause degeneration or damage to tissue over time. Inflammation, mucous, scar tissue and obstruction in the airways adds stress to the system, leading to difficulty in breathing, poor blood oxygenation and chronic fatigue.

 

When stem cells derived from fat are given intravenously to treat these conditions, improvements occur over a period of several weeks. Respiratory and forced volume capacity increases, and breathing improves over time. Patients state that they feel they can once again, "catch their breath". Mucous is reduced and scar tissue is reversed.
