Love And Gratitude


You believe that luck favors those who work hard and you are leaving nothing to chance with your future stem cell treatment.  You changed your diet to increase stem cell proliferation.  You quit smoking and drinking.  You get more sun, exercise and sleep.  You researched your condition, the many clinics and every doctor who answered the phone.  You joined a dozen patient groups and you spent enough hours studying to have combined degrees in regenerative medicine and micro-biology.  You’ve done everything in your power to ensure a positive stem cell therapy and results.  Or have you?  Have you trained your brain for stem cell success?
Positive thoughts have a scientific and quantifiable effect on your environment and self.  Expressing words of love to water changes it on a molecular level.  Humans are comprised of over 65% water.  Why would we be any different?  Expressing love to an infant changes their immunity and even their DNA.  Express positivity, hope, faith, passion and see your success before it happens.  Imagine how it will feel to have significant improvements in your health and quality of life.  Imagine how it will feel to be “in great shape for someone who is 65” instead of “in great shape for some who has Multiple Sclerosis.”  Imagine playing tennis, chasing your grand kids around the yard or any of the activities which current condition restricts you from doing.  Wrap those feelings of joy and satisfaction around yourself.  Practice the smile you will wear when your friends and family stunningly blurt out: “oh my God, you look great!”
A change in attitude can have a huge effect.  An enormous amount has been written about how our attitudes change our perceptions which change our reality.  Renowned Psychiatrist Victor Frankl, author of “Man’s Search For Meaning,” found that those people in concentration camps who controlled their attitudes were predominantly the ones who lived.  How’s your attitude?  How’s your glass? Half empty or half full?
Why be happy? What do you have to be happy about, you’ve been dealing with a chronic or terminal disease for ‘x’ years?  True, but you are still alive.  You are alive in a period of medical history where chronic and terminal disease are falling in front of the scientifically proven safe and effective power of regenerative medicine.  You’ve found this site which is a resource for information.  There is a potential path to mitigation of your symptoms and recovery for you whereas ten years ago there was not.  It’s time to embrace a brighter future and it doesn’t start outside of you, it begins within.
Be positive.  This is your homework.  This is not easy at first.  It will feel false.  You will feel like you are acting or even, delusional. Keep at it, it will get easier.  Remember, positivity is a learn-able quality.  Others may worry you will be crushed if the results come too slowly or aren’t up to your expectations.  Smile in the knowledge that you are WAY stronger than that.  You’ve dealt with heart disease, MS, Diabetes, etc.  You are stronger than they realize.  You are even stronger than you realize.  Others may dissuade you from “getting your hopes up.”  Smile in the private knowledge that you are not setting yourself up for disappointment, you are conditioning yourself for success.  Condition yourself for success.  Your body, your brain and your attitude.
Here’s a few words I wrote to a friend going for stem cell therapy which may help on your path to success.
The science behind stem cell safety and efficacy is solid, your faith is strong, your passion is palpable and we’re all send prayers and thoughts of strength and encouragement!  Hoping you have an awesome experience and significant improvement!A few thoughts to help you on your journey; that which you’ve traveled before, that which you embark on today and the journeys of your future:TRIALS CREATE STRENGTH: “If you will call your troubles experiences, and remember that every experience develops some latent force within you, you will grow vigorous and happy, however adverse your circumstances may seem to be.” –  JohnHeywoodBE OPTIMISTIC: “Bepsychopathically optimistic and always stay hopeful for the best outcome.”BE HOPEFUL: “And as far as false hope, there is no such thing. There is only hope or the absence of hope-nothing else.” – Patti DavisYOU CONTROL YOUR DESTINY: “I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.” – Jimmy Dean

LOVE AND LAUGHTER: “May the love hidden deep inside your heart find the love waiting in your dreams. May the laughter that you find in your tomorrow wipe away the pain you find in your yesterdays.”

THINK POSITIVE: “If you realized how powerful your thoughts are, you would never think a negative thought.” –  Peace Pilgrim

YOUR PATH TO SUCCESS STARTS TODAY: “Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but anyone can start today and make a new ending.” – Maria Robinson

All my love,

Dedicated to the amazing women (and men) who are doing everything in their power to heal their children…

Do not confuse them for a distracted and solitary parent sitting alone in a dark corner on a laptop, sipping a spritzer and dangling a toe into stem cell treatments.

These are parents who are researching for years, they network and talk to everyone they can get their hands on, they create pages and sites and media campaigns, they compare data with each other and they do it better than a super computer, more relentlessly than a pit-bull and they do not give up and do not surrender.

They are intense and even fanatical researchers with passion, drive, motivation, education and intelligence and they are going to change the entire stem cell industry from the inside out.  You can love them or hate them but do NOT get in their way.  They are blind to bureaucracy, oblivious to obstacles and dismissive of despair.  Their engines run on the nova hot burning jet fuel of a parent’s love for their child, they wield weapons built on research and science and wear impervious suits of armor forged in hope.

They are stem cell moms and they are organized and aggressive and nothing will stand in their way.

They are…

I am continuously amazed at the wet blanket attitude that is projected by so many in light of significant stem cell breakthroughs.

First they say: “stem cell treatment has enabled patients with type 1 diabetes to go for as long as four years without insulin injections”

…pretty awesome huh?

Then they say: “the team warned the treatment may only work in those very recently diagnosed”

…oh, really…bummer.

Let’s just overlook that “recently diagnosed” actually means “recently developed symptoms” (I am fairly sure they don’t mean a 75 yr old grandmother who was “recently diagnosed” as having lived with diabetes for 55 years.) and as my friend the actuary likes to say: “Let’s just concentrate on the numbers.”

  • · Diabetes Prevalence – Total: 23.6 million children and adults — 8.0% of the population — have diabetes.  The total prevalence of diabetes increased 13.5% from 2005-2007.
  • · Diagnosed: 17.9 million people
  • · Undiagnosed: 5.7 million people (24%!)
  • · Pre-diabetes: 57 million people
  • · 1.6 million new cases of diabetes were diagnosed in people aged 20 years or older in 2007.



Ok, those are the numbers….So how SHOULD this article have been written?

How about…

World celebrates as new results prove diabetes pandemic can be stopped in it’s tracks with early detection!  Government to spend 10 million on improved early diabetes detection. (wait, where would they get the money…oh!) Money to be saved from not having to spend 100 million on late stage diabetes treatments.


5.7 million undiagnosed diabetes victims can now be saved from the trials of diabetes, amputation, blindness, kidney disease…etc with a single blood test.

Maybe you can come up with a different slant?

Point is; this is HUGE news!  Can we now cure every diabetic in the world?  No.  But we can potentially cure MILLIONS and this is a time for celebration for those people…and a time for optimism for the potential cures for others who are more advanced (as the science improves)…not a time for warnings of limitations.

But no, they stick to the glass is half empty position and say:
“It would be wrong to unnecessarily raise the hopes of people living with diabetes about a new treatment for the condition on the back of the evidence provided in this study.”

But you know what I think?

I think caution is good…but we are talking about people who are living with diabetes!  In my book, that makes them pretty damn tough already.  They are not little kittens and they don’t have to have their hopes “managed” or “spoon fed” to them.  In fact, raising their hopes may be EXACTLY what they need to survive through one more day of diabetes related pills and insulin, threats of blindness and amputation, reduction of lifespan, kidney and liver disease…etc. etc.

So celebrate the victories, embrace the hope and ALWAYS remember:

“If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream.” Martin Luther King, Jr.

And as far as false hope, there is no such thing. There is only hope or the absence of hope-nothing else. – Patti Davis

“If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a dream.” Martin Luther King, Jr.



And as far as false hope, there is no such thing. There is only hope or the absence of hope-nothing else. – Patti Davis

Although “you feel tiny in the presence of a huge disease,” it is important not to lose hope, Davis said, noting that “interactions may be smaller, but you can still communicate” with a loved one who has Alzheimer’s.

Davis also criticized the Bush administration – Laura Bush in particular – for saying publicly to “not give Alzheimer’s patients false hope.”

“Hope is not false,” Davis said. “It just takes hope, sometimes just the hope of one person.” – Patti Davis

This song inspired me to create a new category called HOPE AND INSPIRATION.  Don’t watch it without a box of tissues.  I’m not kidding.

I refuse to add anymore words because nothing I could possibly write can hold a candle to Ms Boyle’s voice.  -dg
