Cant wait to return for my second treatment. As a nurse, I can say that the staff were well informed and professional. They followed universal precautions, infection control and are very dedicated to ensure that your well being is a priority. Two doctors stayed with me during the whole extraction and infusion of the stem cells. The nurse was exceptional with her delivery of care. North America could learn from this facility on how to treat patients including listening to them. I felt very safe and the people bend over backwards to ensure that you are happy and they do it genuinely. If you have a chronic disease that you are struggling with, I suggest you get a consult and free yourself from the north American Model of pushing pills and blaming genetics for everything.

I saw results in the first ten days of my first treatment, I could roll in bed without screaming. My head and body did not feel as heavy. I had stamina and did more things in the first three months than the last three years. The pain decreased and so did the intensity of it. I was able to reach a little further too. The clarity of my brain was the biggest noted relief. My head felt full, heavy disrupted and after my first stem cells, my head felt normal again.
I returned for treatment two in September. Again, we were well received at the San Diego airport by the clinics driver. My second treatment has given me a huge boost. All my swelling is gone. I cant believe it. I lost 10 pounds of fluid within the month. My fingers are thin again and rarely have I had swelling since the second treatment but when I do, I can still roll my ring around my finger. On a side note, I had three loose teeth and my first stem cell treatment fixed that. I also suffered from gum disease and my gums were always inflamed and bleeding. My dentist was really surprised to see my gums healthy for the first time ever. I got rheumatoid arthritis two weeks after my one and only flu shot. That was 18 years ago. I was extremely desperate as the pain was so intense that I had no quality of life, no enjoyment etc. and was planning my death. I was bedridden for most of six months last year. I heard about stem cells from a foreign doctor and investigated. I was initially denied by progencell as they said my arthritis was too advanced. I explained that I wasnt looking for a cure. I was looking for symptom relief as my swelling was so exaggerated and uncontrolled that it was slowly killing me. My C-reactive protein was at 131 and I ended up with pericarditis with effusion as a result. Not fun! Stem cells has done more for me than any drug has ever done. My bad days now can be compared to my good days when I was bedridden. They come in spurts but it is nothing compared to where I was. I still have some type of pain most days. The difference is that I was in a torture room before. The pain is better managed. I have energy, I go out. I can enjoy life around me. I wont ever be able to bend or close my hands but the pain is 90% gone in duration and intensity. I just turned 50 and am enjoying my second chance. I will be doing for my third and final treatment in the new year.
