What’s it like to have your bone marrow harvested?, stem cells, ProgenCell, Tijuana, alternative medicinePeople can be squeamish about things they’ve never experienced before, especially when it comes to medical procedures, so we’re not surprised when a prospective patient asks us about bone marrow.

The fact of the matter is that the primitive bone marrow transplantation practiced on leukemia patients a half-century ago was slow and painful. But that was an entirely different procedure than what we use at ProgenCell.

Our orthopedic surgeon, a specialist who is particularly skilled with bones, works very quickly to aspirate a very small amount of bone marrow from a single site. As a consequence, our approach is the least invasive method known. This is important for the patient’s comfort, of course, but it also has a therapeutic advantage. Since stem cells “home in” on damaged parts of the body, any wound that might be created during the harvesting lessens the effectiveness of the therapy by monopolizing stem cells that ought to be treating the patient’s condition.

Stefan Sargent, a filmmaker, was so impressed by the lack of discomfort in our harvesting process that he arranged to have a video made of his own procedure. See for yourself here.

How did medicine survive FDA, progencell, stem cells, Tijuana

Those of us who practice on the forefront of medicine get tired of hearing advice like “Don’t trust any doctor whose treatments aren’t approved by the FDA” from bureaucrats and laymen. It’s not that we have anything against the FDA – we’re really natural allies in the advancement of medical practice because we give them discoveries that they turn into accepted procedures. What we do is the yin to the FDA’s yang: we complete one another. We would be much happier if those bureaucrats and laymen understood that our successes today are tomorrow’s FDA protocols.

Imagine what it was like in England in 1800. Almost everyone contracted smallpox and a fifth of them died of the disease. Worse still, those who were “variolated” (inoculated with smallpox as a preventative) also died of the disease. What hope would you have in that environment?

Edward Jenner inoculated people with cowpox in order to protect them from smallpox. He did this in spite of dire warnings from the Anti-Vaccination Society that his technique would produce “cowlike appendages” in his victims. Although the technique was known as early as 1765, and despite an utter lack of adverse events in Jenner’s experiments, it wasn’t until 1840 that the British equivalent of the FDA completely accepted “vaccination” (inoculation with cowpox) as a safe and effective means of suppressing smallpox.

ProgenCell’s work has paralleled Jenner’s in several ways. Like Jenner, we work with well-established discoveries. Like Jenner, we work with governmental regulatory agencies in getting our protocols accepted generally. And like Jenner, we have never had an adverse event from our work.

For those who lived in smallpox areas during Jenner’s day, it made sense to get vaccinated. For those who suffer from untreatable conditions today, it makes sense to look into autologous stem cell therapy. Find out what ProgenCell can do for your untreatable condition.

I never thought that diabetes was hereditary, I had read about the topic and most of my research got me into the same conclusion: Diabetes is hereditary. My father has been living with diabetes for ten years now and when we found out about it, all my brothers and I had a big interest to learn more about the disease. I got diagnosed with diabetes as well; I’ve been living with it for almost five years.

Symptoms of diabetes are not so obvious and when you notice them, you already require a visit to the Doctor. In my case, I had a sudden weight loss; I went from wearing jeans size 36 to 34, just in a couple of months. Also I was feeling fatigued all the time and numbness in hands was considerably present.

When I was diagnosed, definitely it was very unpleasant news. My grandfather had died many years ago, because of diabetes complications, so my fear became present.

Fortunately, my wife and my kids have been very supportive during this stage of my life. We have tried everything, homemade remedies, special teas, etc., all of these without leaving medical treatment. Until one day, an old friend from college asked me: If I had heard about stem cells; personally, I had heard something, but I wasn’t an expert about it.

Stem Cells are special cells that regularly are extracted from the bone marrow or fatty tissue, then the cells are taken into a laboratory and finally they are injected into the same person (autologous transplant). These cells are known as regenerative cells, because what they do: tissue repair, increasing cell efficiency therefore making internal organs stronger. In my case, we are talking about my pancreas.

After I did more research about Stem Cells, I noticed that a Stem Cell treatment could work to prevent complications on my kidneys, vision, circulatory system and other organs of my body, everything treated at the same time. Also, I was happy to know that there is minimal risk, and there are no secondary effects.

When I got convinced that Stem Cell therapy was an option to treat my diabetes, I decided to investigate where I could get my therapy. The first thought was in the United States. It was hard to find a clinic certified by the FDA. There were so many ads of clinics that offer Stem Cells and not all of them were clear about their services, they do not mention the name of their doctors and specific locations, also some signs that made me uncomfortable were the fact that I was being sold other parallel therapies and additional products. It felt they wanted my business but were not focused on my heath. Very commercial, and expensive, so I decided to search somewhere else. Doing some more online research it came to my attention that Tijuana was getting a higher status among the destinations for health tourism, there I found ProgenCell. I felt they were a good choice for me because I had the chance to talk with one of the doctors, their results offered were congruent, also the facilities look amazing and the attention was excellent.

Finally, I have to say that the stem cell therapy gave me better results than I expected, no pain and my quality of life has increased. My Doctor got impressed with the results from the last blood analysis, the insulin intake has decreased. Definitely I recommend people to explore these stem cells therapy option as well as ProgenCell, not only because they changed my life, also for their care and trust they brought to me.
