Your Own Stem Cells May Help Relieve Symptoms of Osteoarthritis
Osteoarthritis is generally a result of the aging process, overuse, and injuries. As many former high school and college athletes can attest, those old sports injuries can resurface and become quite painful later in life.
Regenerative medicine offers exciting possibilities for treating Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Regenerative medicine using one’s own adult stem cells can be tremendously helpful in alleviating the symptoms of osteoarthritis. It may even avoid the need for a total knee replacement.

Regenerative medicine offers the exciting potential of developing alternatives to total joint replacement for treating osteoarthritis.
65 Year Old Treated for Arthritic Bad Knee - Gets New Lease on Life
A 65-year-old overweight gentleman who already had one total knee replacement, came to us because he wanted to avoid having to do the same thing for his other knee which was badly worn down. Our expert physicians injected his own stem cells and growth factors into the affected knee as well as intravenously for systemic rejuvenation. He was also put on our powerful anti-aging and weight loss protocol. A few days later, he commented, “This is the first time I have been without pain in over five years!” Within a few months, he had lost 50 pounds, was jogging several miles and weightlifting. His motivation and energy levels have soared through the roof. A businessman, he exclaimed, “I have more vitality than ever, I’m never going to retire. And I have plenty of energy leftover to play with my grandkids!”
Depending on where the osteoarthritis is located, and how many areas are affected, the medical doctors may directly inject the affected joints and also infuse your stem cells intravenously. Infusion by IV as well as directly into the joints provides an overall anti-aging, rejuvenating effect.
The positive results using autologous (from the patient’s own body) stem cells taken from bone marrow and adipose tissue for persons with osteoarthritis can include:
- Reduction in pain and inflammation
- Increased flexibility
- Improvement in ability to exercise
- Increase in energy level (when infused by IV)
Your Stem Cells Can Ease The Symptoms Of Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis is an auto-immune disease, which means the body's immune system mistakenly attacks healthy tissue. RA causes joint inflammation and can hamper your ability to perform daily life activities. Without proper treatment, it can worsen and destroy your joints. In some cases, RA may affect the eyes, lungs and other vital organs. Some of the serious effects of RA include:
- Tendons become inflamed and may rupture (tear apart)
- Swelling can severely damage or destroy ligaments that hold joints together
- Damage to joint cartilage and bone
- Erosion of the bones of the joint can occur, causing pain and deformity
Rheumatoid arthritis can affect nearly every part of the body. Other complications may include:
- Damage to the lung tissue
- Increased risk of hardening of the arteries
- Spinal injury when the neck bones become damaged
- Inflammation of the blood vessels which can lead to skin, nerve, heart, and brain problems
- Swelling and inflammation of the outer lining of the heart and of the heart muscle, which can lead to congestive heart failure
The standard drug treatments for RA may help reduce symptoms but can also cause serious side effects, especially with long term use.
What our patients are saying . . .
I have had rheumatoid arthritis for five years. Upon awakening, I was always very stiff all over and in pain. I had constant severe pain in my spine, elbows, wrists, and ankles and was testy and fatigued. I could barely shuffle up the stairs without suffocating. I work in a demanding legal position and was so tired all the time. After getting my own stem cells by IV, I have dramatically more energy, my pain is about 80% less, and I can go up and down stairs like a rabbit with normal breathing. I can comb my own hair for the first time in five years and feel like a new person!

Adult Stem Cells Have No Adverse Side Effects
The beauty of adult stem cell therapy is that it can heal and regenerate from within, using a person’s own natural healing mechanisms. Moreover, the use of a person’s own adult stem cells in persons with RA carries no dangerous adverse effects and may provide positive improvements such as:
- Reduction of inflammation and swelling in joints
- Relief of painful aching in joints
- Relief or cessation of grinding fatigue
- Increase in energy levels
- Better ability to concentrate and focus
- Increased flexibility and range of motion
- More positive mental attitude
- Overall improvement in quality of life
