    Stem Cells and Neurological Diseases: Facts and Fiction

    in Health

    Curing vision loss, growing  new skin for burn patients, growing blood vessels, and curing neurological diseases. These are a few of the proposed benefits from stem cell therapy. Embryonic stem cell research has been a source of political debate and controversy, but adult stem cells exist throughout our body after embryonic development and there is some evidence to suggest that they can differentiate to become other cell types. This potential capacity for adult stem cells to be instructed to specialize interests scientists and researchers who hope it will lead to a cure for Parkinson's and other neurological diseases.


    Separating stem cell fact from fiction will be the role of my guest, Dr. Juan R. Sanchez-Ramos,   Movement Disorders Professor and Researcher, Department of Neurology, USF Health, Tampa, Fl.  Dr. Ramos’ Clinical interests include: neurodegenerative diseases with focus on Huntington’s and Parkinson's disease. His research interests include: neurodegeneration, neurotoxicology and adult stem cell biology. Dr. Ramos is the Medical Director for the Parkinson Research Foundation, and provides monthly Ask the Doctor lectures at its community based program, Parkinson Place in Sarasota, Florida.

    Triple Lutz Report #392--Stem Cells Could Hold The Key To Your Improved Health

    in Finance

    We're about to release a new show, The Truth About Stem Cells, with Dr. Sharon McQuillan. Adult stem cells are being used in cutting edge treatments around the globe. Dr. McQuillan has been involved in stem cell research for over 10 years and really knows her stuff. Located in South Florida, I had the opportunity to discuss the therapy with her over the past several months. I'm amazed by the results and can't wait to share them with you. 


    Interesting story about the lengths an NJ woman went to reclaim her rightfully earned parking space. She hit another woman over the head with a 15 inch steel pipe. She's facing aggravated assault charges. Moral of the story, if someone wants your parking space, let them have it!


    As promised, New York's decline has accelerated. The number of derelicts living at the airport has increased dramatically in the past year, turning the main terminal into the city’s most popular de facto flophouse, where they sleep, eat and wash up while competing for space with passengers, according to Port Authority sources. But after the NYPost ran their expose, the Authority is promising to bar the homeless from 11pm to 4am daily. What a bold measure. 


    New York State is also incapable of understanding the unintended consequences of rapacious tobacco taxes. At $4.35 per pack, plus other levies, it's running smokers over 10 bucks a pack to satisfy their addiction. And NY can't figure out why cigarette sales are down a whopping 54 percent. You don't need to be Ludwig vonMises to figure that one out!


    And Cuba is making progress. They've agreed to pay back billions in principal to their creditor nations, sans the US, while getting a waiver of the accrued interest. Not a bad deal, all things considered.

    Take your stem cells to the bank!

    in Health

    Most people think of liposuction as a way to get rid of excess fat. They can’t wait to kiss those fat cells goodbye. But, don’t waste that fat! Your extra fat could become your secret beauty weapon. Smoothing wrinkles, rejuvenating skin and plumping up the volume in breasts. Just because you don’t want extra fat on your belly or thighs doesn’t mean that fat isn’t valuable.


     


    Fat is full of stem cells, valuable regenerative cells that have shown healing benefits. Stem cells have shown promise in treating a variety of different diseases from Alzheimer’s to spinal cord injuries and more. We can use these stem cells in conjunction with other cosmetic treatments to promote healing and foster cell growth.


     


    Fat banking or fat storage takes your excess fat today and stores it for later use. Someday these cells may be used for a stem cell enhanced fat transfer or similar beauty treatment or, depending on how medicine evolves, these cells may someday become a priceless tool for medical treatment as well.


     


    Tune in to Dr. Berger of Rejuvalife Vitality Institute and special guest, Anthony Dudzinski, COO of American CryoStem to learn more fat banking and stem cell storage!

    Treating Sports Injuries with Stem Cells

    in Health

    Sport related injuries are common with pro-athletes and even college and high school athletes. Although some injuries can be abrupt, many injuries develop over an extended period of time when an athlete is constantly exerting stress on their muscles. To combat these long term injuries, researchers have suggested the use of Stem Cell Treatment to cure these common injuries. Although the use of Stem Cell Treatment has been controversial and many doctors debate its effectiveness, studies reveal that that there is potential to repair injuries with the use of cell-based therapy.   


    On this week's episode we are talking with Dr. Andrew Blecher to discuss regenerative treatments including stem cell treatment. Dr. Blecher received his education from William College in Massachusetts where he was an NCAA- All-American in Track & Field. After graduating from Medical School at Tufts University and completing his residency, Dr. Blecher joined the world renowned Cleveland Clinic Foundation located in Ohio, allowing for more opportunity to work with high profile athletes.


    Due to Dr. Blecher’s notable contribution and success in the field of sports medicine, he currently serves as a physician for teams of Los Angeles Valley College, College of the Canyons, and Notre Dame High School. He is also the medical consultant for ESPN as well as the treating physician for the Summer X-Games, the WTA LA Women’s Tennis Championships, and USTA Men’s Tennis Farmer’s Classic.

    Minorities Conquering the World of STEM

    in Education

    The educational gap that is present within urban communities is causing a steep divide within the overall STEM industry. A lack of exposure, academic support and resources are hindering the possibilities of minority youth within the STEM industry. President Obama has noticed the void and gap and developed an initiative to combat it.Highlighting the notion that if America wants to compete with other countries our youth must be able to embrace a technological, scientific, mathematic and engineering platform to ensure our place as a world trailblazer. Tonight we are going to address why there is a gap within urban schools and how we can enrich youth with opportunities to advance within STEM.

    Using your body's stem cells and platelets to treat arthritis & musculoskeletal

    in Health

    Dr. Kevin Passero and his special guest Dr. Mayo Friedlis will be discussing using stem cells and platelets from your own body to treat arthritis and other musculoskeletal injuries.


    Dr. Friedlis joined the National Spine & Pain Centers in 1983 and has helped expand the practice into a leading pain management facility. He is passionate about the science of managing pain and committed to delivering the most effective therapies possible to each of his patients. Dr. Friedlis is one of few physicians in the Washington DC area trained to perform Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) therapy, and is one of the first doctors in the area to use Stem Cell Therapy for musculoskeletal injuries, in particular knee and hip arthritis.
