I do believe Nelson (nelo) had treatment at SCB for heart failure, COPD and diabetes. A triple whammy. I still stick with my advice and that is for each person to research and consult with several different clinics. If a clinic is asking for an astronomical amount of money, this is a good reason to pause. If they are not able to answer questions to your satisfaction, run! As the forum grows, it is my hope that more members will post who have had treatments for a large variety of diseases. I just don't see the solid proof that one type of cells is far superior to the other for all applications. Yes, it may be true for some (and to me the jury is still out on the issue), but there is no blanket approach that I can see except for ads done by the clinics to boast that their method is the best. As for COPD, I have found that location seems to be the main factor and certainly not cell type. The Argentinian clinic has had good success using adult stem cells and SCB has had good success using umbilical cords cells as has the clinic in Costa Rica. To my knowledge, Germany has not treated any COPD patients yet, but they are willing to. It would be nice to peek into the future on all of this, but until then, this forum does not give medical advise nor does it intend to, but we do welcome opinions of our members and we value their post therapy information on how they are progressing.
I pretty much agree, but for cardiac I have seen nothing to suggest that cord cells are the way to go. Just nothing there to suggest using anything other than human cells. I am not saying that COPD and other illnesses have not benefited from both cell types, and I am not saying that human cells are better than cord cells. Just speaking about cardiac, which is what I have researched more than anything else, since that is what my issue is.
Cord cells COULD end up being the way to go for cardiac down the road, but virtually nobody is using them right now.
And yes, I realize that SCB has used them for cardiac, and as for ICM, it is difficult to get a straight answer as to what they use for them. ICM Costa Rica told me that they only used cord cells, then a week or two later their website claimed that they used human cells for cardiac, so I just don't know what they are doing.
I definitely agree that we don't give any medical advice.
I am definitely no doctor, and any advice I give at all is coming from someone who has had 2 stem cell treatments and received no benefit.
So, I am sure it is easy to see how much good all my research has done for me!!
So, take it at face value, and/or with a grain of salt!!
