    Kenwest - I broke 3 of my toes years ago and they would often hurt. I noticed the same thing you did in that they don't hurt since I've had stem cell treatments.

    If you have any articles you feel would benefit readers of this website, please feel free to post them or post the links to the pdfs. If they concern COPD, then they should be posted in the Pulmonary section. As long as there are no direct links to commercial clinic sites or promotions of any kind, then I would love to have you share what you have written on a subject that is very important to many on this forum.

    Also, please tell us a little more about the clinic in Honduras. Perhaps, one of the doctors there would like to participate in our Ask the Doctor feature.
    First treatment in 2007. Pioneering ever since.

    Barbara,

    I am happy to quote articles on arthritis and stem cell therapy. The top line is the link, just copy and paste into your browser. The secondline is a brief description of the article so the reader does not waste time reading an article he is not interested in. The third line is the title of the article and the last line is the Journal in which it was published. Please note that these are all highly reputable scientific journals.

    This is a large study of 1114 osteoarthritis patients who had adipose-derived autologous stem cells treatment to 1856 joints, mostly hips and knees. Follow up was 12.1 – 54.3 months. No side effects, systemic infection or cancer was noted. Most patients improved 3 – 12 months after treatment with an overall 91% of patients improving.

    [QUOTE=Kenwest;24001]Barbara,

    I spoke with Dr. Glenn Terry of the Global Alliance for Regenerative Medicine and he would be happy to be a guest doctor. How do we proceed?

    I will have to comment further on another entry. The website will not allow me to have more space.

    greatly appreciate any feedback shuggy
    Hi Shuggy. Check out bit.ly/2a4IxSK[/url] for a great written experience of a patient with chronic rheumatoid arthritis that experienced a great improvement in quality of life following treatment using fetal stem cells. She hasn’t been to the chiropractor once since treatment!
