VIDEO: Neil Riordan, PA, PhD discusses Stem Cells: Their Role in Aging and in the Treatment of Chronic Diseases

At our May 4th 2019 event in Southlake, Texas, Dr. Riordan discusses stem cell therapy at the Stem Cell Institute in Panama City, Panama. He mentions the two main types of adult stem cells but his talk focuses on mesenchymal stem cells including their sources and functions. Then he goes on to discuss specifically the specially selected human umbilical cord tissue-derived MSCs used in Panama. He highlights several clinical trials for spinal cord injury, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes and cancer inhibition. He shows MSCs growing in culture and discusses 3D culturing. He then goes into cord tissue products being offered in the US including Signature Cord, a minimally-manipulated Wharton’s jelly product he developed. Finally, Dr. Riordan discusses current US law and the new stem cell law in Texas, including where he sees the industry in the US going from here.

Stem Cell Treatments for Autism – Valentino R.

Hi my name is Layla I am Valentino Roshi’s mom. He is 4 and a half years old and we have been to the Stem Cell Institute three times.

The first time we came over in November 2017 and at that point, he was diagnosed with the highest level of autism. He was nonverbal. He didn’t have eye contact. After the first treatment, we had a lot of eye contact, a lot of attention span, [and] his attention span increased. He would sit down through the whole classroom for 4 hours, and, you know, sit down still and pay attention

The second treatment we saw a lot of gains on the speech. So, like right now he’s saying “mama,” he’s saying “sister,” like he’s repeating words. When he goes to the bathroom he says, “water and soap.” So like a lot of those things like, you know I guess, we never thought we would hear. He says, “I love you,” and he kisses us. You know the gains are there.

I guess the third time we are expecting more fluid speech, but as of right now we are very happy with the improvements, and you know, it’s just giving us a lot of hope, hope that was lost at some point. You Know, that’s really it.

Stem Cell Treatments for Autism – Grant Meyer

“Hi, this is Grant Meyer, and Grant is 12. He has autism and some developmental delays. This is our second time in Panama at the Stem Cell Institute. We came last year in January and we noticed several changes, some pretty immediate with ability to read. [His] ability to converse was much better. Better vocabulary. Better usage of words and sentences. And while he was only reading a handful of sight words by the end of the week, he was able to read some full books. [His] coordination is better; muscle coordination. And… That’s the highlights.”

UFC Champion TJ Dillashaw discusses how stem cell therapy in Panama cleared up his psoriasis

UFC bantamweight World Champion TJ Dillashaw discusses a side effect of his stem cell treatment at Stem Cell Institute in Panama with its founder, Neil Riordan, PA, PhD during dinner in Panama.

Dr. Riordan – I am talking about the last time you were down here.

TJ – I’ve been learning a lot about what the stem cell therapy did for me. Stuff that I didn’t even know it was going to do until I listened to you on the [Joe Rogan] podcast [with Mel Gibson]. And one was it got rid of my psoriasis.

Dr. Riordan – And where was your psoriasis?

TJ – My scalp. I had it for like six years. I thought changing my diet and all this stuff would help it out but I think what really helped it was coming down and getting stem cells.

Dr. Riordan – And how long was it after you got treated that you felt the difference?

TJ – Shoot. I didn’t notice for probably a couple months, I think is when I figured it out. I had it really bad but a couple months later it was completely gone.

Dr. Riordan – Wow.

TJ – I had it for six years, you know? Yeah.

Interview Transcript

Interviewer: Today is December 22nd 2017. Please give your names.

Michele: Steve and Michelle Bacon and this is Brady.

Interviewer: Brady’s diagnosis?

Michele: Brady was diagnosed when he was two and a half with autism.

Interviewer: So, this would be his second stem cell treatment?

Michelle: Umm, hmm.

Interviewer: The first treatment was performed when?

Michelle: April, 2017.

Interviewer: Can you describe his improvements?

Michelle: The first round of stem cells, after the second infusion, we were putting him to bed that night and he said spontaneously, without any requests or anything, us prompting, nothing…his first 3-word sentence. He said, “I want pizza.”

Steve: When Brady was diagnosed he was, or is diagnosed as non-verbal. So that was a complete surprise that he came up with a spontaneous 3-word phrase.

Michelle: And before that, he had only been doing like “echoing” and a lot of it was not understandable to everyone. I mean, we understood because we know him but other people wouldn’t have been able to understand.

Steve: Since stem cells, he’s become more patient and able to wait for things and not have to quick go and do something. He can stand in a line and wait now.

Michelle: He’s more… His school reported that he is more tolerant of transitions, like when they’re transitioning from a preferred activity to, like, work, like a work sheet – school stuff.

Steve: He’s able to read some sight words now since…

Michelle: About 30. Yeah, he can read words now. He wasn’t able to do that before. He can… It started out just recognizing like, from an array of three pictures, and then he would have like, “apple” or “banana” and he’d have a horse and a pencil and a banana and he cold match the word “banana” to the picture. And he would trade out the words and he could correctly identify which word went with which picture. And now, all we need is the flashcard of the word, no pictures, just like “horse” or “yellow”. And he can identify about 30 words. 30 or 40 words.

Steve: And he can now read some simple sentences with the sight words in it that he knows. And this is all new since stem cell treatments.

Michelle: Yeah, a lot more tolerant. Eye contact is better. He seeks out peers to play now whereas he didn’t before. Greetings are better – like “Hi” and “Bye”. Still working on the eye contact though. That one’s still kind of tough. He can look at you in a mirror, do eye contact in a mirror but the face is a little hard still.

Interviewer: Ok, anything else that you’d like to mention?

Michelle: Anything else guys?

Brother: He’s my brother.

Sister: [Inaudible]

Steve: More interactive with peers and family members.

Michelle: He’s definitely more interactive with everyone.

Interviewer: Ok.

Michelle: And no.. Oh yeah! He used to, it was hard always to get him to come out of his room. He would just want to sit in his room and play on his iPad and now he actually comes out and he sits with us a lot more. And he’s a lot more interactive with the family. We used to have a hard time getting him to stay at the table for dinner and now, he stays at the table no problems. He used to have meltdowns that would last 20 or 30 minutes. Now, he turns around in like, a minute. It’s so much better. His temperament is a lot better. I mean, he’s always been a very good boy but he gets rigid about things, you know? If he doesn’t have it just that way, it’s a 20 – 30 minute meltdown – before. Now, it’s much better.

Interviewer: Ok. That’s it. Thank you very much.

Everyone (including Brady): Cheese!

Stem Cell Treatments for Multiple Sclerosis

A Miracle for Martha
A woman’s journey of deliverance from pain

By Deanna Kirk Daily Sun Nov 26, 2017 (Link to original story)

The last 12 months have been a giant series of ups and downs, an extreme roller coaster for Martha Phillips.

Last December, her father-in-law battled brain cancer, which affected the lives of all of her close family; and her only brother died very suddenly from a pulmonary embolism. They were buried a week apart.

The battle with Multiple Sclerosis

Martha had been fighting her own battle against Multiple Sclerosis since a diagnosis in 2010. This disease causes the body’s immune system to attack its own tissues, and the malfunction destroys myelin, the fatty substance that coats and protects nerve fibers in the brain and spinal cord, according to the Mayo Clinic.

Phillips’ had seen her own ups and downs in that battle as well, with medications that caused huge weight gain, severe intolerance to heat, and intense bouts with pain. She tried many different protocols and medications, but what seemed to make the most difference was an extreme dietary change, which led to a loss of 72 pounds, acupuncture, adjustments, and regular massage therapy. Under the care of Dr. William “Doc” Davis in Ennis, she went from 10 prescriptions down to two, and did quite well for nearly six years.

But after the bout with all the stress during December 2016, Phillips discovered her body just could not cope with all the continuous stress demands placed upon it, and she suffered a pretty severe setback. She was forced to go on disability from her job.

“The Tysybri I was having infused regularly has a black box warning,” Phillips said. “I had to sign paperwork when I started taking it, that I knew it could kill me.”

The neurologist offered several other choices of medications, but all were either equally as risky with not as many good results, or more risky with even worse results.

“To me, it felt like my only choice was going backwards, and to me that was unacceptable,” she said.

Phillips learned about a somewhat-new innovative treatment for people with Multiple Sclerosis, and it was not being done in the United States yet, but for $25,000 one could fly to Panama City, Panama and have the complete treatment done and stay right in the same hotel where the treatments are done.

The blessings of how all her funding came together to have the treatment were chronicled in a story that ran in the July 8, 2017 edition of the Daily Sun.

But this story is about the trip itself, the treatment, and how her life has been since the trip to Panama.

Life since Panama, and new stem cells

It’s been roughly three months since Phillips returned from Panama. She took her little sister Robine Reeves with her, and the things she noticed right off were 1) the Atlanta airport is awful, and 2) Panama is a lot like Texas with regard to the weather.

“It’s very Americanized — they take American dollars, Spanish is their primary language but it’s OK if you don’t speak it,” Phillips said. “The people in Panama are so super friendly, even the kids. A group of junior high kids got on the bus with us and many of them spoke to us. That was the day Vice President Pence was there, and we, stupid Americans, didn’t know he was there, but his motorcade was very impressive.”

Phillips notice that the Panamanian president’s motorcade also came through that morning, and they watched it all from the rooftop of their hotel where the pool was. And some guy from London had to tell them their own Vice President was there.

“The clinic has a very impressive concierge,” she said. “Someone was there holding a sign with my name on it at the airport. She took us to the VIP lounge and whisked us through customs and the fingerprint deal very quickly and painlessly, and called our driver who works for the clinic. He took us to the hotel, and showed us shopping and restaurants along the way.

“They don’t have really good restaurants, they just look for consistency,” she said.

“The next day, I had a medical checkup and blood work. The second day, they gave me stem cells through an IV. I also had two subcutaneous injections in the groin/lymph region, which were more painful than the IV.”

Phillips also had physical therapy that day which consisted of evaluation, stretching exercises, balance and strength.

“The stems cells they use are umbilical cord stem cells, which women donate when they give birth,” she said. “Since they are brand new, they double every 24 hours. They’re a perfect source because they multiply so fast. I got 1.33 million stem cells.”

The way the stem cells work for MS and some other autoimmune diseases they’re using them for is that they reset the immune system, she said. They do not go in and repair the damage the MS has already done to her brain, but there is scientific evidence that shows if MS stops attacking the body, the body can heal the brain and spinal lesions.

“They believe that because there’s another virus that does the same kind of damage to your brain, but because it does not continue to attack the brain, people recover from it,” Phillips said.

There was another day of treatment just like the previous day, then the following day the sisters flew home. On the day of the blood work and checkup, the doctor discussed diet and supplements with Martha.

“He started describing a high fat, low carb diet, and I said, ‘Do you mean a keto diet?’ and he said ‘Yes,’” she said. “He said I would be throwing my $25,000 down the drain if I did NOT follow this diet and take supplements.”

Phillips had already followed this diet in the past, but wasn’t following it very strictly at the time.

Her supplement list looked something like this: 2000 mg per day of Magnesium; B vitamins; CoQ10; Stemkline; Probiotics; and a lot of it is supposed to be for energy as well as for brain health.

“When I went to Panama, I was taking 10 prescriptions,” she said. “I am taking one now, 90 days later.

“That all actually happened within the first two weeks.

“I feel amazing. I feel like I can conquer the world. I’ve had more energy than I’ve had the entire time I’ve had MS.”

Philips said when she made her trip to Panama, her thought was if she could get rid of enough of the pain and fatigue in order to return to work, she would be happy.

“But I got SO much more — I actually have no symptoms right now.”

She’s also no longer a slave to heat intolerance. Before, when she went to CrossFit, she had to wear a cooling vest full of ice packs and stand in front of a giant fan or A/C unit in order to work out. The least little bit of heat would cause her to become very, very sick.

“The first time I worked out after my transplant, Nick (Biles) came over to check on me, and I cried and said ‘I can’t remember the last time I worked out without heat intolerance,’” she said.

The heat intolerance makes the MS Symptoms you have temporarily worse until your body cools down. That can happen with one degree of change in body temperature, she said.

“It’s really weird to me now, to learn how to live without thinking about all those things,” Phillips said. “For so long, I’ve had to consider all sorts of eventualities in every scenario I find myself in.”

Stem Cell Thearpy for Autism – Interview with Stephen Lallo and Neil Riordan, PhD, PA

Stem Cell Therapy for Heart Failure – Anita Ciszewski’s Story

The heart attack I had at 44 was a massive one – a 3 on a scale of 4, so the damage was very bad. When you get a 3, you know at 4 you’re dead. The whole left side was damaged, and it was the hospital’s fault because back then when a woman went in with chest pain they didn’t care 20 years ago. If I’d been a man they’d have paid more attention but because I was young, they left me for six hours and did nothing. During those six hours, I was in full-blown heart attack mode and imagine the damage that was done. The nurses kept saying it but nobody else noticed. The waiting list in Canada for the bypass was a year and a half and that’s how we ended up in Miami with Dr. Kretchmar. He is the doctor I trust. He’s been with me for 20 years. I felt good after my bypass for about ten years and then I started going downhill, started getting blockages again. I’ve got three stents implanted not to mention a torn artery. That’s when Dr. Kretchmar recommended that I go to Panama for stem cells.

So, I got on a plane with my son and went for the treatment at the Stem Cell Institute. I went back six months later, not because I had to, because I wanted to, I didn’t want to take any chances of any fall back. I wanted to be on the safe side. I went the second time and the side effects weren’t that bad, there were hardly any side effects.

I found the second treatment was even better than the first. I was getting more energy, I was doing things . . . I could kneel down and pick something up and get up again, but I noticed in the summertime working around the pool that I was able to pick up leaves, vacuum the pool, and doing things that I haven’t done in a couple of years.

I decided again on my own that I was going back again. I went again the third time and I’ve been going every six months. After the third one, I realized I didn’t need nitro anymore. I wasn’t using the nitro patch, nor was I using the nitroglycerin spray. I had no angina. I was shocked. I couldn’t believe it. Before, I couldn’t go up a flight of stairs without stopping halfway!

Thing were progressing so well that I said, can I come back again? I just wanted this to keep going that way. I did have a fourth treatment in October. After the fourth treatment, we decided that we’ll wait a year because four is quite a bit, and I’m feeling . . . as long as I feel like I’m doing great, there’s no point in me just going for the sake of going. It’s all good

I used to get up and fall asleep all over the place. I’d get up in the morning, grab a cup of coffee, and then I was sleeping with my coffee in my hands. I didn’t even know I was sleeping. I would take my granddaughter to see a movie and she’d be waking me up after the movie was over. I just could not stay awake. I felt so weak; zero energy, none whatsoever. I’ve seen a huge, huge difference. I’ve mentioned it to so many people that know me already. I say, “listen guys, I’ve gone there four times, had four treatments, and I’ll go back again if I have to.” For me that was my saving grace.
