Thread: Stem Cell Therapy

    Everyone wants to look younger and so do I, and when I came to know how Stem Cell Treatment helps in rejuvenating and repairing damaged organs and tissues, which include our skin, I was simply blown off. Of late scientists have discovered the fact that non-embryonic cells, which are extracted from humans can aid in fighting age spots, wrinkles, and even fine lines.

I would not recommend the venous stem cell treatment.
    SORWELLA,
    My name is Peg. Can you tell me exactly what clogged your lungs? Was it the stem cells? I've had stem cells for the past 4 years. I suffer with chronic neuropathic pelvic pain due to a vaginal cuff abscess after a hysterectomy in 1996. I developed symptoms of burning chest pain and shortness of breath 2years ago. Over the following year, my symptoms decreased with the burning chest pain and shortness of breath. This month I received a stem cell paste injection & intravenous stem cells. Yesterday, I developed once again severe burning of my chest & shortness of breath. I came close to going to the Emergency room. So I took 20mg of prednisone tablet. I contacted my stem cell physician. He told me that pneumonitis (inflammation of the lungs) can occur in the first 24 hours. That it's not typically seen after 48 hours. My stem cell physician was more concerned about a pulmonary embolism. My present symptoms are the same as a year ago. I believe that the stem cells are causing inflammation of my lungs. So I will be calling my pulmonary doctor in the morning. I'm sorry that the stem cells didn't help with your lungs. I may seek out stem cell paste injection again if needed for my chronic neuropathic pelvic pain. Thankfully the stem cells in the injection will not migrate from the injection site. Take care.

    Default severe asthma and sleep apnea

    I definitely wouldn't take antibiotics for asthma or COPD since I think that's what destroyed my lungs. I couldn't exhale 3 months after taking azithromycin for 6 weeks

    Antibiotics are pretty much standard it seems like for COPD patients. And rarely does a doctor or nurse advise those taking them to also take a probiotic. I was reading an article the other day that said anyone who has taken antibiotics should take a probiotic for at least a year after. Gut health is gaining a lot of attention especially in its role in chronic disease.
    First treatment in 2007. Pioneering ever since.

    SORWELLA,
    I'm sorry that you didn't see any relief with your stem cell therapy. I also developed pneumonitis or inflammation of my lungs after receiving stem cell therapy. But thankfully it was short lived. I do know that with stem cell therapy, it can be months before seeing positive results. With all of my treatments, I had pain relief immediately after the administration of the stem cells. It just didn't last long enough. Except for my recent stem cell paste injection for my pudendal neuropathy. This stem cell paste injection will last for 2years. The stem cells will stay at the injection site of my pudendal nerve. They will not migrate to other areas of the body. The stem cells will be healing and combating inflammation and pain. Also at the end of the 2years, My pudendal nerve potentially can be healed completely! My physician, Dr. Todd Malan of Scottsdale AZ, is the first physician to treat pudendal neuralgia with the stem cell paste injection. I would not give up hope on stem cells treatment for your condition. For stem cell therapy is advancing rapidly with each single day. Take care.....
