Look guys, in any new health care industry you are going to find fraud and deception. You are also (hopefully) going to find success and health. You have to research new treatments and find out who knows the real skinny. Make sure you trust them before making a decision. “Caveat Emptor” (buyer beware) applies here as much as anywhere else. Remember, if it sounds too good to be true, it is. No treatment heals everyone. No treatment heals 100% of the time.

Stem cell treatments are relatively new. I designed a building for the first commercial treatment center in 2004 and was so blown away by what I saw, actually switched careers from architecture to stem cell education. There are real therapeutic benefits for many people from adult stem cell treatments for diseases which are considered incurable or with no means of life extension or symptom reduction or recovery.

My dream is patient empowerment. Taking someone frantic, ignorant and desperate and then educating them, calming them and empowering them to make the best health decisions they can for themselves.

I have been involved in adult stem cell education since 2004. I have dedicated my life to helping people find the best stem cell treatments in the world and protecting them from getting conned. I wrote a children’s book about stem cell treatments. I am working to get 2 members of my family treated with stem cells. Do NOT paint an entire industry of health care with one giant “con” brush. That would be the same as saying the entire pharmaceutical and medical system is a con or a fraud just because there are millions of hits when you google “FDA fraud.”

If you have had a bad experience then I am terribly sorry and wish we had met prior so I might have helped you avoid that experience. If you are basing your opinion on: “all you’ve heard is bad” then I would like to share this article: https://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/do-stem-cell-treatments-work/  and over 1,300 clinical trials that prove the safety and efficacy of stem cells…not to mention thousands of patients treated whom have fewer symptoms or no symptoms and recovery or a higher quality of life.

60 Minutes, Stem Cell Treatments – Snake Oil Salesmen

In STEM CELLS IN THE NEWS on April 18, 2010 at 9:17 pm

I would like to draw your attention to the recent 60 Minutes segment that made comparisons to Stem Cell Treatment Centers as “snake oil salesmen.”

This blog was created to help navigate the misinformation and confusion associated with the almost 500 treatment centers around the world.  Many of these treatments centers are inexperienced, use untested protocols or are merely “in it for the money.”  This blog was created to assist the patient interested in stem cell treatment but daunted and worried by the overwhelming mass of information and misinformation.  I helped create a set of rigorous standards by which these treatments centers have been assessed.  Only those facilities that have a proven history of success, safety, service and integrity meet the exceedingly high standards.

Stem Cell therapy is a young and rapidly evolving science.  New information appears everyday and the typical patient has no hope of wading through and evaluating the plethora of information that has come before and continues to be generated by doctors and scientists around the world.  I can help to find the best treatment center for you, your condition and your situation and give you the confidence to make an educated and informed decision when choosing stem cell treatment protocols, treatment centers and doctors that will perfectly cater to your needs and concerns.

The problem was not the concept of treating ALS with stem cells…in fact, Stem Cell treatment of ALS has a history of success since Feb, 2009 –

“In a [February, 2009] published clinical stem cell research study, adult stem cells were shown to help delay Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) progression and improve an ALS patient’s quality of life. This research study was believed to be the first published study comparing ALS patients who had their own stem cells injected into their brain vs a control group…

The initial two year clinical test study results of the stem cell procedure was published in Cytotherapy, February, 2009. Positive results were confirmed through both clinical observation and MRI tractography.  It is considered by many within the international neurological community to be the foremost procedure available for minimizing or abrogating ALS symptoms and extending the lifespan of ALS patients. The procedure is a state of the art use of autologous CD-133 (+) stem cells injected into the frontal cortices for the effective replacement of motor neurons.”

(There are also a number of other clinical trials currently ongoing to further test the safety and efficacy of Stem Cell treatment of ALS.)

FDA, FTC Warn Public Of Fraudulent 2009 H1N1 Influenza Products

In ALL ARTICLES on May 2, 2009 at 12:51 am


Please,please wait until the FDA has evaluated these new products and deemed them perfectly healthy…like some of the other products they’ve approved…Raptiva, Vioxx, cigarettes, Swine flu vaccines from the 1970’s, etc.


Google “FDA” and “scam” and you will get 1.2 million hits.  Do you think they are all conspiracy nuts?  How about Dr. David Graham (senior drug safety researcher at the FDA) who blew the whistle on the Vioxx debacle.

Go Google the words “graham vioxx interview” and you will get 41,000 hits.  Here’s a small sample of the greatest hits parade:

The FDA’s suppression and intimidation of scientists is a threat to public health. Unless it changes, and scientists can speak without fear, they cannot defend the public,” he said.

“I would argue that the FDA as currently configured is incapable of protecting America against another Vioxx. Simply put, FDA and the Center for Drug Evaluation Research (CDER) are broken.” November 23, 2004 PBS Online News Hour Program

the corruption and crimes that take place every day inside the Food and Drug Administration.”


Let he who is without sin, throw the first stone...FDA, heal thyself...those who live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones...

FDA, FTC Warn Public Of Fraudulent 2009 H1N1 Influenza Products

ScienceDaily (May 2, 2009) — The U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Federal Trade Commission are alerting the public to be wary of Internet sites and other promotions for products that claim to diagnose, prevent, mitigate, treat or cure the 2009 H1N1 influenza virus. The agencies are also advising operators of offending web sites that they must take prompt action to correct and/or remove promotions of these fraudulent products or face enforcement action.

“Consumers who purchase products to treat the novel 2009 H1N1 virus that are not approved, cleared or authorized by the FDA for the treatment or prevention of influenza risk their health and the health of their families,” said Michael Chappell, acting FDA Associate Commissioner for Regulatory Affairs.

“In conjunction with the Federal Trade Commission, the FDA has developed an aggressive strategy to identify, investigate, and take regulatory or criminal action against individuals or businesses that wrongfully promote purported 2009 H1N1 influenza products in an attempt to take advantage of the current flu public health emergency.”

Products that are offered for sale to the public with claims to diagnose, prevent, mitigate, treat, or cure infections caused by the H1N1 influenza virus that have not been proven to be safe and effective for these uses must be carefully evaluated.
