Stanford Doctors ‘Stunned’ Stroke Patients Walk Again After Stem Cell Injections

June 4th, 2016

Reported by: Lili Tan – NBC Bay Area

It’s a medical breakthrough that is even surprising doctors: chronic stroke patients with little hope for recovery suddenly talking and walking again. Stanford researchers say a new stem cell experiment is transforming lives.

“We did not expect to see significant recovery,” said Dr. Gary Steinberg, who is Stanford University School of Medicine’s Chief of Neurosurgery. “We were quite startled by the remarkable recovery some of the patients showed.”

Treatment For MS Patients Gives Remarkable Results

June 3rd, 2016

UK doctors in Sheffield say patients with multiple sclerosis (MS) are showing “remarkable” improvements after receiving a stem cell treatment that is usually used for cancer patients.

About 20 patients have received bone marrow transplants using their own stem cells. Some patients who were paralyzed have been able to walk again.

Prof Basil Sharrack, of Sheffield’s Royal Hallamshire Hospital, said: “To have a treatment which can potentially reverse disability is really a major achievement.”

Around 100,000 people in the UK have MS, an incurable neurological condition. Most patients are diagnosed in their 20s and 30s.

The disease causes the immune system to attack the lining of nerves in the brain and spinal cord.

Support and Stem Cells Provide Marina With A Second Chance

May 8th, 2016

Irish Family

Marina Jordan Killoran (45) suffers with an incurable auto-immune disease called Systemic Scleroderma and was told by medics she needed a stem cell transplant, which is not available in her homeland Ireland.  She must travel to the USA for this life saving treatment.  The good news is she now can.

Just a few weeks ago Marina put out a video as it emerged her stem cell transplant would cost $125,000 (€109,000), not including travel, accommodation or aftercare expenses.

In just 7 days from the start of the appeal via the Irish Newspaper, “The Independent”, donations came flooding in and €130,000 was raised. Marina’s stem cell transplant was booked immediately and will be performed at the Chicago Clinic in the USA on June 20th.

Overjoyed Marina said: “This is a second chance at life. It’s incredible.”

“We are euphoric, it’s just such a turnaround in just one week,” she said.

The cash raised will also allow her husband and two daughters to travel with her to the U.S.A.  Marina insisted that any extra cash will be put back into supporting others suffering with the disease.

“If I can continue and I am in good health I just want to dedicate my life towards helping others with this illness.”

Systemic Scleroderma or “thickened skin” creates an overproduction of protein collagen in the body.

Marina has the more severe form of the disease which means her internal organs are also affected. Her lungs, oesophagus and stomach are now damaged – and there is also an anomaly with her heart.

The Race To Cure Macular Degeneration With Stem Cells

April 3rd, 2016

The USA, Japan and Britain are leading the race in stem cell therapy with regards to finding a cure for blindness and preventing loss of eye sight, a very prevalent issue for aging populations.

Dr. Pete Coffey, of the UCL School of Ophthalmology has led The London Project to Cure Blindness.

Advanced age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a leading cause of irreversible blindness and visual impairment in the world. As many as 11 million people in the United States have some form of age-related macular degeneration.

By the year 2020 there will be 450,000 Californians struck with AMD unless modern technology intervenes.

Japan and Britain also face a future with large numbers of aging humans who may lose their eyesight from AMD.

For good reason, these countries are investing millions into stem cell incentives to ensure modern day technologies and medical advancements can preserve the independence of their aging populations for as long as possible.  Preserving one’s eye sight is one of the most valuable aspects of independence.

Watch this short video below where Dr. Pete Coffey talks about this work being one of his finest accomplishments to date.

ABC57 News – See the Difference Michiana

An unprecedented stem cell procedure was performed today at a veterinary clinic in Michiana.  [Click link above to watch video].

The surgery was for 5-year-old German Shepherd, Nike, and set an example of how stem cell therapy is changing modern medicine.

Although it took merely 30 minutes, it was tough for Jayne Stommel to watch, Nike’s owner and trainer.

Stommel traveled from Indianapolis to South Bend hoping the operation would relieve her 5-year-old super dog of arthritic pain and ensure Nike could continue working for many more years.

Stommel’s love for training rescue dogs began long before Guinness and Nike came along.

After seeing the devastation of 9/11 firsthand, Stommel says she discovered her calling.

With a little bit of research and the right dog, that dream became a reality.

Nike, is one of only 150 certified FEMA trained rescue dogs in the nation that actively works to find survivors of fires, building collapses and natural disasters.

While training at only a year old, Nike was in an accident which ultimately led to arthritis in her hips.

“Nike is mid-career, she just turned five. If she doesn’t have to stop because the pain in her hips, she should be able to go another four or five years,” said Stommel.

Stommel knew in order to prolong Nike’s career as long as possible, the stem cell procedure, which was affordable and minimally invasive, was necessary.

“It takes a lot of work and training and that’s after you find the right dog. They are very unique dogs.  Being able to keep her working longer, is very important,” said Stommel.

Noticing that Nike was favoring her hip during recent training, Stommel was recommended to and then sought the help of Dr. Chris Persing and the team at Western Veterinary Clinic on the edge of South Bend.

The treatment was divided into two operations, the first was this morning.

“We opened up her abdomen; we found a good healthy layer of fat that we pulled out. I handed that over to a staff so that she could prepare that tissue. To extrude the stem cells, to incubate them, to excite them, to get them ready for a job to do. Later on in the day, we went ahead and used those stem cells to inject in to Nike’s hips,” says Persing, Associate Veterinarian.

The injection went well and hopes are high for a full recovery.

“After a two or three week period, she should be pretty much back to her normal activity and doing the things that she needs to for training again,” said Persing.

And in just two months Stommel’s other German Shepherd, Guinness, will be joining that exclusive list of certified FEMA trained rescue K9’s.

Until then the two train together, waiting for Nike to join the pack again.

What Natural Nutrients Can Help AIDS Patients?

Act Against Aids

By Thomas E. Stone, ND, CNHP

In 1995, an article in “Scientific American” concluded that traditional disease fighting methods were not effective in fighting the HIV virus and AIDS. Instead, this author recommended that we focus on finding ways of stimulating the immune system and reducing the viral load. Colostrum can be very effective in both of these ways.

Colostrum stimulates and strengthens a weakened immune system and those who take it on a regular basis, have a heightened ability to resist and fight infection – exactly what the AIDS patient needs.

Colostrum activates or “turns on” the immune system in the newborn and it can do the same thing for the AIDS patient – or anyone, for that matter. It contains over 40 different immune factors which work in harmony to support a stronger defense mechanism. This is so critical for the AIDS patient, who dies – not from the HIV virus – but from secondary infections which the immune system is no longer able to control.

One of the immune components in colostrum falls into a category called immunoglobulins. These are “functional antibodies,” ready to combat a host of bacterial pathogens. In this way, colostrum can actually be a sort of secondary immune system for the AIDS patient.

Colostrum and colostral components can also be effective in reducing viral populations. A 1995 study conducted in the Netherlands, indicated that the immune factor, lactoferrin, is one of the best ways to reduce viral levels in the body. It inhibited the HIV virus of certain body cells and was able to completely block the Cytomegalovirus infection. This same study concluded that bovine (cow) lactoferrin was up to 2.5 times more effective than human lactoferrin. Several other immune factors contained in colostrum have been shown to have anti-viral activity as well. In fact, a 1990 study reported in the Journal of Tropical Pediatrics identified a “non-specific virus-neutralizing activity” in non de-fatted colostrum.

One of the most serious problems with AIDS is something called “wasting.” It is brought on by chronic diarrhea and results in a loss of vital nutrients and fluids. It also depletes the supply of intestinal antibodies, leaving the patient even more vulnerable to dangerous pathogens. A 1992 study showed that out of 37 immuno-deficient patients with chronic diarrhea, 72% experienced significant improvement with the use of immunoglobulins from colostrum. Another study stated that colostrum immunoglobulins have been able to treat diarrhea-causing infections associated with AIDS, where no other treatment was effective.

Wasting occurs when the AIDS-infected body begins burning muscle for fuel. Here again, colostrum can help. The growth factors, contained in colostrum, also play a big role in supporting AIDS patients. Treatment with IGF-1 and growth hormone (GH), both contained in colostrum, produce an increase in muscle mass, preventing the severe weight loss associated with wasting. If colostrum were used for no other reason than to reduce the diarrhea-induced wasting and to prevent the loss of muscle mass, it would greatly enhance quality of life for those who suffer from AIDS. However, in my experience, colostrum can do so much more than this.

Eight months ago I treated a patient with full blown AIDS, who had been sincerely searching and doing everything in his power to regain his health. When I initially met with him, he had a T- cell count in the high teens, despite the fact that he had been following a strict health regime for a matter of months. With mega doses of colostrum (60 capsules/day) and an herb called Maca, we eliminated many of the other things he was doing. He continued to eat healthfully and take ample amounts of green juices. Within 2 weeks, both he and his medical doctors were shocked to find that his T-cell count had risen to 350! His doctor even insisted on a retest to verify these results. Now, 8 months later, he has been declared HIV free and doctors are saying that they must have misdiagnosed him in the first place. This man is so dedicated to helping other people that he now owns a health food store and is sharing his knowledge with hosts of other people.

A desire to get well is a critical factor in healing. This man was totally dedicated and when he found the additional nutritional help of colostrum, he made fast progress. Can colostrum assist AIDS patients? In a variety of ways, the answer is a resounding, Yes!

Another important ingredient in Stem Cell Worx Intraoral Spray is fucoidan. Fucoidan is a sulfated polysaccharide that is found in the cell walls of several species of brown seaweed.  Fucoidan possesses many antiviral properties and blocks bacteria at the cellular level while also strengthening the immune system.  More recent studies, in the last ten years, show strong support for fucoidan being used as an adjunct dietary therapy for cancer, HIV and inflammatory diseases.
