Stem Cell Therapy for Heart Disease: John Coleman

John “Skeeter” Coleman, III received stem cells for heart failure in Costa Rica in 2008″

“… Blood samples were taken to find donor placentas with tissue types compatible to mine. Three weeks later I received two IV injections per day for seven days. It was done on an outpatient basis in CIMA hospital. Simple, painless and I could drive myself to and from the hospital for the injections. Four months after the stem cell therapy my cardiologist asked me to return for tests to see if we had made any progress. Blood studies revealed BNP 620 (down from 3,875); Hemoglobin A1c 6.0; all other tests were normal. Ejection fraction had increased to 51 (up from 26 two months after ICD implant and up from 12 on original admission) and there were no further problems with dyspnea. She was ecstatic. I was elated. We hugged and both of us shed tears of joy before she emailed that same phalanx of physicians who kept me alive previously with my spectacular results.

“The quality of my life has been enhanced immeasurably. I definitely breathe easier and I’m climbing up and down the mountain daily with no problems and no stopping every 15 meters (48’) to catch my breath.”

Prior to stem cell therapy my ICD defibrillated five times preventing sudden cardiac death. A change in one medication followed by the stem cell therapy and I am “defib free” for 14 months. The quality of my life has been enhanced immeasurably. I definitely breathe easier and I’m climbing up and down the mountain daily with no problems and no stopping every 15 meters (48’) to catch my breath. How long I will live is not in my hands but I appreciate the fact I am no longer burdened by a powerful pharmaceutical lobby that maintains a stranglehold on the US Congress. One doctor explained it in simple terms. “Pharmaceutical firms make money selling drugs. Stem cell therapy has the capability of curing possibly eliminating all drug therapy. There are many things the United States has to be proud of. This isn’t one of them.Think about it.!”
