Stem Cells Treat Macular Degeneration

March 28, 2018

Stem cells treat macular degeneration Stem cell transplant ‘game changer’ for MS patients I have been involved with stem cells for eight years while in New York City. Stem cells are on the verge of becoming primary treatment in many clinical diseases. The above are examples of unusual conditions that have shown improvement using stem cells. As a surgeon with over 40 years experience operating on many parts of the body, widespread background and experience in medicine can offer additional benefit. Look at dealing with an entire human machine. Reset Button Stem cells are basic, naïve cells with an ability to divide indefinitely and differentiate into any of three embryonic tissue levels. This means they have the ability to form different types of cells leading to distinct tissue growth. There are many levels of stem cells. Mesenchymal stem cells are the most useful for overall stem cell therapy. The word pluripotent indicates the potential for a stem cell to not only regenerate different types of tissue but also provide a systemic effect. Everyone has their own stem cells. However, they are the same age and have been exposed to the same environmental toxins as the individual. Stem cells get older as we do.

Many of the medical treatments taught in medical school and during residency training are reactive. Surgery or medications are used to treat diseases and conditions that have developed. Statistics show that medications for depression and mood stabilizers are the most frequently prescribed drugs in this country. Stress is considered ubiquitous in our society. Sometimes nothing is said and people, particularly men, don’t talk about this. It is part of life. Just work your way through it. The Dark Side Of Low T No One’s Talking About: Low Testosterone And Depression Cognitive function and emotions can improve with optimization of testosterone levels. This is an observation seen frequently even though these conditions are not often considered a symptom of testosterone deficiency. By affecting cognitive function and mood, stress can also be aggravated by suboptimal testosterone levels. Testosterone in balance with estrogen and progesterone is responsible for restoring a normal mood. This balance applies to women as well as men. Optimal sex hormone levels and balance can encourage a better sleep cycle with other subsequent beneficial consequences. With hormone optimization, most patients experience improved libido and sexual function. Many patients initiating a hormone optimization pr

I see a lot of patients who are dealing with hormone issues. Hormones are chemicals secreted by the body in small quantities. They can affect all organ systems. There is something else driving you. Think of that loved one that attracted you to form a couple. Chances are that some pheromones cause an initial attraction. These are chemicals that cause changes from contact with microscopic quantities. Here’s How Pheromones Are Driving Your Sex Life. Maybe pheromones are about genetic attraction? 7 Scientific Reasons You’re Attracted To That Special Someone (#3 Is Creepy) This is truly about neurochemistry.

• Just injecting stem cells is not a complete procedure. • Stem cell availability has increased with placental and umbilical cord blood sources. • Proper chemical and hormone balance can get things on the right track for healing. When balance is not optimal, it is not worthwhile to go into the doctor’s office, receive a shoulder injection, and expect miracles. • Patients do not come to my office and just get an injection. They get balanced. • The location of the injection, the solution to be injected, and what additional agents that can be included with the stem cells during the procedure and recovery also play a major part. • Good judgment comes from experience.   One area of antiaging has to do with body parts that wear out. This happens from injury, athletics, and daily wear and tear. Joints can be repaired or replaced. One of the repairs may be stem cells. With my career change and move to New York City there has been significant experience in the field of stem cells. This started over seven years ago with some retired NFL and NBA players. These players were going to Denver for stem cell injections of joints. The doctor there asked me to do prolotherapy injections on each patient several times to get the environment of the joint ready for healing prior to their stem cell injection. So I’m sitting there in front of a 320 pound former defensive player thi

The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) is at it again! They have recommended against the use of menopausal hormone therapy (HRT) for the prevention of chronic conditions such as breast cancer, osteoporosis and heart disease, among others. Their recommendation includes statements indicating that hormone therapy actually increases the risk of some of these conditions. Keep in mind, this is the same task force that, without a single urologist on their committee, recommended against routine PSA screening several years ago. The subsequent decline in routine PSA screening has led to a significant increase in the number of men diagnosed with advanced prostate cancer. This is also the same task force that recommended against taking vitamin D for the prevention of osteoporosis. Key points the USPSTF failed to take into account are that no distinction was made between synthetic and bioidentical hormones and their mode of delivery (oral vs transdermal). This is critically important because the majority of the data used to formulate their recommendations comes from studies using oral CEE (estrogens from horse urine), with or without medroxyprogesterone (a synthetic progestin). • Medroxyprogesterone is known to increase the risk of breast cancer whereas bioidentical progesterone is protective against breast cancer • Medroxyprogesterone increases the risk of blood clots whereas b

What do you Know About your Blood Type? It is not common that people in the United States know their blood type. Many foreigners have this test done as far as routine medical care. In my clinical practice, patients ask about their blood type as far as directing a special diet to lose weight and stay healthy. Food and weight loss will be addressed later. Look at other aspects that may be related to blood type, 7 Things Your Blood Type Can Tell You About Your Health As far as the difference in blood types, type O does not produce any antigens that will cause antibody production stimulating a rejection process when infused to patients who are types A, B, or AB. O blood can be given to anyone. It is the universal donor. When you look at the other blood types you can see there are certain antigens which will stimulate antibodies. Type AB is known as the universal recipient because they can receive blood from any other blood type without producing antibodies. When you look through the conditions associated with blood types, note the section on cardiovascular disease. There is mention of many other risk factors that are variables involved in this condition which makes it difficult to give a specific risk related to blood type al

Similar age groups today compared with those 75 years ago show a significant drop in hormone levels. For males, this may be up to a 40% drop in testosterone. The so-called metabolic syndrome (consisting of obesity, elevated cholesterol, and blood sugar problems or diabetes) that develops in middle age patients is many times a sign of chemical and hormone imbalance. I have covered these areas before with a previous article, Hormone Disruptors. Many of the chemicals mentioned in that article are also included with this recent article, 9 Chemicals that are Killing Your Testosterone Levels and Stealing Your Manhood. The real culprit are xeno-estrogen like chemicals that display estrogenic qualities. And it may not be just one hormone out of balance. There is a hormone orchestra. A part of this orchestra is the sex hormone section containing testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, and other hormones within that section alone. All three of the above have something to do with health in both men and women. Progesterone has not been considered significant in males. But that is another story. Then consider sections related to thyroid, adrenal, and g

• Cardiovascular risk prevention is an integral part of a longevity program. Significant information can be obtained with noninvasive exams. • The Calcium Score developed by Dr. Agatston is a key factor in preventive cardiology. • Cholesterol testing and blood work identifying chronic inflammation are important. • Blood pressure assessment and management is essential to decrease cardiovascular risk. • SphygmoCor is a valuable tool to assess peripheral and central blood pressure in a noninvasive fashion. • Testing for mercury and lead can identify a source that stiffens the blood vessel leading to a higher blood pressure. Look at your Oligoscan for nutrients and toxic heavy metals that was done in my office. • Other currently available exams related to heart and blood vessel structure and function are reviewed. • Data from multiple tests can provide information identifying significant risk and direct the aggressivity of treatment. I graduated from medical school in 1975. This allows me to reflect on advancements and changes in medicine. As a surgeon, on critically ill patients who needed careful cardiovascular and pulmonary management, I learned to place various lines and plastic catheters with the tip positioned in the lungs, heart, and large arteries and veins located inside the body. There was always some risk with the procedure since it was invasive. It was a

  This article was published last week. I have already posted information pointing to Roundup as a testicle killer. Toxin blast and Importance of detox blast. I present this as something to consider as far as your overall health. If we really had clean and fresh whole food and good water there would not be as much need for vitamins and supplements. Notice I also mentioned water. Here is a review regarding Water–It May Be Almost Everywhere But Not Good Everywhere. So I am not going to talk much. Look at the information and see how this may fit in with your health.

  • look at your ring finger
  • testosterone improves sugar metabolism
  • testosterone lowers cholesterol numbers
  • appropriate hormone replacement looks at identifying your metabolic “sweet spot” for proper levels
  • maybe you want to show your friends the finger

Here is a basic test that can be used to assess testosterone. Besides this test there may be other information supporting hormone replacement therapy. So to start you need a doctor to prescribe testosterone (controlled substance) then just start using it, right? Maybe in some places, but my goal as a physician is to do what is right for my patients. What changes can improved or optimized testosterone levels bring to your health?

  1. Testosterone is an androgenic hormone, which simply means body repair. It stimulates the immune system. It improves body composition and helps increase lean muscle mass.
  2. Testosterone improves sugar metabolism and type II diabetes
  3. Optimized testosterone levels lower cholesterol with no medication. Cholesterol is a precursor for the formation of testosterone. If testosterone levels are suboptimal, cholesterol levels go up.
