Chronic pain, Parkinson’s disease, osteoarthritis, lung and kidney disease, multiple sclerosis, brain and spinal cord injuries, vision and hearing loss… It’s rare that a single treatment can provide dramatic improvements across such a broad range of health challenges.
But that’s what makes stem cell therapy so powerful and unique. It unleashes the regenerative power of your body’s own stem cells, which are responsible for healing, growth, and replacement of cells damaged by injury, illness, aging, and normal wear and tear. And because stem cells are unspecialized and have the ability to change into various cell types, they can target a wide variety of tissues and organs.
Here’s what a few of the many patients we’ve treated at Whitaker Wellness have to say about stem cell therapy.
Stem Cell Therapy for Chronic Neck Pain
“I have had chronic neck pain for more than 10 years caused by bone spurs and arthritis, and I have had four epidural treatments to relieve the pain. Last year, I did stem cell therapy at Whitaker Wellness, and my neck has been pain free ever since.” — Carol D., CA
Stem Cells Benefit Parkinson’s Disease
“Since I had stem cell therapy to help control my Parkinson’s disease, I feel stronger and more enthusiastic, and activities such as dressing myself, buttoning my shirts, and tying my shoes keep getting easier and easier.”
— Richard O., WA
Stem Cell Therapy Relieves Hip Pain
“It has only been four weeks since my stem cell therapy, but my limp is improving, and I feel less pain in both of my hip joints.” — Rich M., CA
No More MS Meds After Stem Cell Therapy
“I’ve had multiple sclerosis for more than 20 years. I’ve been on every MS medication available, but there were still times when I was unable to get out of bed, walk, talk, or feed myself, and I had to give up working as a hospice nurse. My daughter and I flew to California for the procedure in September. The results are far more than I could have ever imagined! Today I am on no prescription drugs, and I have hardly any signs of MS. I am back working as an RN and enjoying my family. We are able to plan activities and travel now, which is something we never could do before. I tell everyone about my experience with stem cell therapy at Whitaker Wellness and highly recommend it to anyone with a chronic illness.” — Stacie R., TN
Stem Cells Speed Healing From Injuries
“I was involved in a motorcycle accident in 1989 and sustained a spinal cord injury. With therapy I was able to walk again, but the right side of my body had limited mobility and use. After doing stem cell therapy, I have more strength and can stand for longer periods of time. Other gains, which surprised me, include improvements in my hearing and eyesight.” — Craig C., CA
Stem Cells Benefit Traumatic Brain Injury
“During the first year after our son’s traumatic brain injury, everyone kept saying he would hit a plateau, but we refused to accept that. Now James is on year four, and he’s still getting better and learning more every day. He is more independent and able to express himself better, and his medication doses have been cut in half. He is also much happier and less depressed. We attribute this to his hard work in physical therapy and the stem cell therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT), and other treatments he has received at Whitaker Wellness.” — James, Robert, and Marcia V., TX
Stem Cell Therapy Improves COPD Symptoms
“In 2001, a pulmonologist diagnosed my shortness of breath as COPD. I was on oxygen at night and Advair by day, but my resting O2 was falling below 90, and my energy was low. In May 2014, I had stem cell therapy and HBOT at Whitaker Wellness. To summarize: Stem cell therapy has boosted my oxygen, raised my energy level, and allows me at age 81 to continue living on my own with confidence and competence.” — Janet N., AZ
Widespread Benefits of Stem Cells
“I have a lot of problems due to multiple system atrophy. Stem cell therapy has helped me with my breathing, which is almost back to normal. I no longer wake up during the night unable to breathe. I now have feeling in the bottom of my feet, and my kidney disease has improved.” — Bruce D., Canada
Healing Benefits of Stem Cells…Hidden in Fat
Stem cells are located in tissues throughout the body, but the most abundant source is fat. That’s right—your own fat is a treasure trove of rejuvenating stem cells! Bone marrow also contains reasonable numbers of stem cells, though far fewer than fat, but harvesting them is more invasive, and extensive incubation is required to obtain acceptable concentrations. Fat, on the other hand, is right there for the taking, and most of us have plenty to spare.
We simply remove a small amount of fat (about 50 cc), usually from the abdominal area, through a minimal liposuction procedure performed in a certified outpatient surgical suite. The stem cells are then separated from the fat, concentrated and counted, and returned back into the patient via an intravenous infusion or, in some cases, injection directly into problematic areas.
Regenerative Medicine at Its Best
Once these concentrated cells are redeployed, the body’s own innate wisdom takes over. Signaled by inflammation, stem cells home in on damaged tissues, where they produce growth factors and other compounds necessary for repair and regeneration.
Some of them, such as vascular endothelial growth factors and angiogenesis mediators, stimulate the production of new blood vessels to restore circulation and oxygen supply. Others prevent apoptosis (programmed cell death) or boost the formation of various cell types. Another stem cell benefit is that they curb excessive inflammation and help regulate the immune response, which is key to the therapy’s benefits for inflammatory conditions and autoimmune diseases.
In addition to the improvements reported above by patients at Whitaker Wellness, fat-derived stem cells have been shown to help patients with bone and skin defects, heart attacks and heart failure, diabetes, cornea damage, tissue transplants, radiation injury, and cirrhosis, hepatitis, and other liver problems. Hundreds of registered clinical trials are currently underway to further study the use of fat-derived stem cells for many of our most debilitating and devastating disorders.
If you ask your conventional doctor about stem cell therapy, you may be told it’s promising, the future of medicine even, but not ready for prime time. That may be an acceptable answer for healthy young people. But if you’re suffering with a chronic, intractable condition and need help now, I urge you to consider stem cell therapy. It’s safe, effective, and available today.
