STEM CELL VICTORY OF 2009?
STEPPING TOWARDS A PARALYSIS CURE, A TALE OF TWO SUPERMEN
By David Granovsky
“It was the best of times, it was the worst of times…”
A Tale of Two Cities
Superman #1 – Christopher Reeve:
1995 – Thrown from his horse, lands on his head, destroying the first and second cervical vertebrae, and is paralyzed.
The cause: “Spinal Cord Injury” (SCI)
2002 – RSC treatments begin improving the lives of severe SCI patients in Portugal.
2004 – Two of these improved SCI patients testify before Congress regarding the benefits of RSC for treating SCI. After 2 years of RSC treatments providing SCI improvements, Mr. Reeve disregarded this information, choosing instead to “believe in” the promise of embryonic stem cells.
Oct. 10, 2004 – At Northern Westchester Hospital suffers cardiac arrest brought on by infection.
CONCLUSION: After battling paralysis for 9 years Superman #1 dies.
March 26, 2009 – 4 ½ years after Mr. Reeves’ death, not one SCI patient has been treated with embryonic stem cells.
Superman #2 – Male, 23 years old:
Prior motor vehicle accident victim with cervical bilateral inter facet dislocation, C6-C7 injury.
Feb 28, 2008 – Implanted with fresh autologous (from his own body) bone marrow stem cells in Argentina.
March 15, 2008 – Implanted with cultured and expanded mesenchymal stem cells. Clinical indications after implantation were intense physical therapy and MRI each 6 months.
CONCLUSION: After receiving two Repair Stem Cell treatments, intensive physical therapy and with the assistance of a walker, Superman #2 is now walking on his own power, has sensation in his legs, has hair growing on his legs, and has bladder control.
Repair stem cells are the only medicine known to man capable of achieving significant results with the most seriously injured SCI patients. He is living and walking proof that when Western Medicine dogma declares: “severe SCI patients are permanently paralyzed”, it is true only when Repair Stem Cells are prohibited, as they have been, and will be for years to come, in America.
“You go on. You set one foot in front of the other, and if a thin voice cries out, somewhere behind you, you pretend not to hear, and keep going.”
