WHAT IS A STEM CELL?
Beware! There are many types of stem cells and not all types of stem cells repair organs. Stem Cell Therapy has become a ‘media buzz term’ that some clinics are taking advantage of in their advertising campaigns. When inquiring about Stem Cell Therapy ask where the cells are taken from and the most important question, ask if they are PLURIPOTENT cells.
Stem cells are undifferentiated biological cells that can differentiate into specialized cells and can divide (through mitosis) to produce more stem cells. They are found in multicellular organisms. In mammals, there are two broad types of stem cells: embryonic stem cells, which are isolated from the inner cell mass of blastocysts, and adult stem cells, which are found in various tissues. In adult organisms, stem cells and progenitor cells act as a repair system for the body, replenishing adult tissues. In a developing embryo, stem cells can differentiate into all the specialized cells—ectoderm, endoderm and mesoderm but also maintain the normal turnover of regenerative organs, such as blood, skin, or intestinal tissues. There is a discussion within the medical research community revolving around where embryonic cells are found. Our Doctor’s education and research at a very prominent school in Europe believe the stem cells our clinic uses and are harvested from the umbilical cord of a ‘healthy born baby’ are in fact PLURIPOTENT EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS. Our Doctor believes that 10% of the umbilical cord contains embryonic stem cells. Also, he states that one healthy born baby’s umbilical cord supplies enough embryonic cells for -40- of our patients.
This is a ‘logic’ statement used repeatedly by our Founder, Terry B. Massey. “If the umbilical cord is inserted into the embryo for the term of the pregnancy doesn’t it make absolute logic that a percentage of the umbilical cord would contain ’embryonic’ cells if by no other method than osmosis?”
The magical sentence in the above paragraph is….’act as a repair system for the body, replenishing adult tissues….’ The stem cells used in the Genesis approved protocols are Embryonic. They are harvested from the umbilical cord of a healthy born baby specifically for our therapies. Embryonic cells are considered Pluripotent, meaning they can differentiate into all cells for all organs.
There was controversy in the past with the use of Embryonic Stem Cells. Much of that controversy has been put to rest but understand that there will always be those of differing opinions. Our clinic has treated over 5,000 patients with 100’s of varying diseases over the years. The success rate is approaching 90%. Our Doctor is unfiltered and some would say eccentric but he has created a protocol, featuring Embryonic Stem Cell therapy coupled with a proprietary Auto Immune Vaccine, that has been termed miraculous by many of his patients. Our Stem Cell Therapy is designed to repair those diseased or dead cells which are causing the pain and suffering of millions worldwide.
The next question should be: If they are so great and heal so many then why can’t I find this medical miracle where I live? Simple question with a simple ‘opinionated’ answer: There is no money in a cure! Does anyone believe that we have placed men and women in space, walked on the moon, performed organ transplants but we have not been able to cure cancer or a multitude of other debilitating diseases??
There is a very simple answer to the question ‘What are Stem Cells?’ The answer: They are the building blocks of the body, they are what we are.
