Stem Cell Treatment

Hi guys,

I'm new here.

I was wondering if anyone has ever had any success with stem cell treatment.

And if so, where can this be done?

I've personally done stem cell treatment for orthopedic reasons using my own mesenchymal stem cells from the marrow in my pelvis, and it really helped me a lot.

But I also know there are a lot of charlatans out there in that field, too, so you really need to know which types of stem cells to use, and which clinics and doctors are reputable.

Anyone got any suggestions for me?

Thanks!

Oliver

  1. @Oliver thank you for your question on stem cell treatment for macular degeneration. I certainly hope that if anyone in our community has personal experience with this, they will chime in here and share it. In the meantime, I'm attaching a link to an article on this. https://www.brightfocus.org/macular/article/stem-cell-therapy-and-dry-age-related-macular-degeneration-risks-and-considerations Best wishes, Wendy, Advocate.

    1. Thank you very much, Wendy.

      It seems that stem cell treatment for eyes is a lot trickier and less clear than, say, orthopedic stem cells, which I've already done myself with the cultured version of Regenexx mesenchymal stem cells (taken from the bone marrow in the back part of the hip).

      I can say that it was really helpful for my osteoarthritis.

      But it would seem that eyes are such a delicate thing, and it's not so straight forward as re-injecting your own stem cells.

      BTW, my mother (who has early macular degeneration) is already having some success with the PEMF machine that she bought a few months ago. We'll have to see if the doctor is able to see any changes when he checks her eyes later on this month.

      There is some support in the medical literature for treating eye ailments such as glaucoma and macular degeneration with PEMF, so if you don't know about PEMF, you can always look into it.


      It was actually a friend from another continent who asked me to look into the issue of stem cell treatment for him.

      So far, I don't really see much outside of clinical trials to report to him, but we'll see.


      Thanks again, Wendy!


      Best regards,
