“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.”
On Sunday, February 24th, Fox 4 Sports in Dallas-Fort Worth aired a feature story about one of our patients, Sam Harrell. Sam is head football coach at Ennis High School in Texas. Sam was forced to retired from coaching several years ago due to multiple sclerosis but is now back on the field after receiving stem cell therapy in Panama.

Regenerative Medicine Center Opens at Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine and Health Sciences
The Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine Focuses on Non-Opioid Treatments of Pain
(Tempe, Arizona, October 2, 2018)–Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine & Health Sciences team will cut the ribbon for the opening of the new Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine on November 15 at 4:00 p.m. This affiliation between SCNM and Neil H. Riordan, PA, PhD, a research leader in stem cell therapy, will accelerate the development of this safe and innovative option for the treatment of acute and chronic pain. The Neil Riordan Center for Regenerative Medicine is staffed by an interdisciplinary team of physicians, and housed in SCNM’s LEED Platinum certified Community Commons.
Regenerative medicine, particularly autologous stem cell therapy, utilizes a patient’s own stem cells to promote healing, reduce inflammation and stimulate tissue repair. People with acute and chronic pain, including elite athletes, may benefit from the growth factors, natural anti-inflammatory activity, and regenerative properties of autologous stem cell therapy.
Over 100 million Americans suffer from chronic pain at an annual cost estimated at exceeding $620 billion, the many of whom are currently treated using opioids. This has led to wide-spread abuse and addiction to prescription opioids and illicit drugs including heroin. Opioid addiction and abuse has been attributed to 37,000 deaths each year nationally and 1,763 deaths of Arizonans from opioid overdoses in the past fifteen months. Stem cell therapy promises to limit the reliance on opioids thereby decreasing the potential for opioid addiction and abuse.
Neil Riordan, PA, PhD, is a pioneer in the field of applied stem cell research. In addition to collaboration with major universities in the United States, research and patient care is currently being conducted at Dr. Riordan’s other laboratories and clinics in Dallas, Texas and Panama City, Panama. He is an author on more than seventy peer-reviewed research publications, including clinical studies that explore stem cell therapy’s potential in treating conditions such as autism, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis.
Dr. Riordan is the author of two books on stem cell therapy: Stem Cell Therapy: A Rising Tide – How Stem Cells are Disrupting Medicine and Changing Lives and MSC (Mesenchymal Stem Cells): Clinical Evidence Leading Medicine’s Next Frontier.
We welcome any questions or comments. Please contact Kirsten Texler at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

SONNY MAYO, former guitarist for bands like Ugly Kid Joe and Snot, talks to me about getting STEM CELL THERAPY in Panama for a genetic heart condition. After two heart attacks and unpleasant side-effects from heart medications, Sonny was introduced to stem cell therapy through listening to a Joe Rogan podcast. Raising money through GoFundMe, he was able too make the trip and receive treatment which is not yet legal in the United States. Sonny is a stellar example of taking back his health treatment from an often limited and close-minded medical system. This is an important message as heart disease is the #1 killer in our country!

Donna: Hi, I’m Donna McCairn and this is my son…
Donna: And how old are you James?
James: 14 years old, 15…
Donna: Yeah, 15 in February. So, we came to Stem Cells last September and since then, the changes we’ve seen in James is that his math has really improved. For the first time he got two B’s at the end of last year for school. And then this year he had a target to get 70% mark by June of this year, but he actually got it when, James?
James: This month – for math.
Donna: For your test? And what have you noticed with the stem cells? What things have you found easier?
James: My daily life.
Donna: Such as?
James: Getting ready for school.
Donna: And what about your homework?
James: I’m completing my homework on time.
Donna: And so what we found at home is James is being more self-directed so instead of coming home and struggling to get through all the homework, he’s come home and sort of had that forward awareness where, “I’ve gotta get my homework done because it’s due tomorrow,” and sitting down and starting his homework unassisted, which has been a huge change. And what about with other people? What changes have you felt?
James: I’m talking to more people.
Donna: And are you less shy or more shy?
James: Less shy.
Donna: Ugh Huh. And what happened on this trip to Panama?
James: I made some friends.
Donna: It’s a first. As all the parents know, making friends is the hardest thing, isn’t it?
Donna: Yeah. Reading people is really tricky. So with our home life, with his siblings, there’s been less arguing, more being friendly, more being able to reason, just not getting so uptight and blocked. He can understand others rather than being self-orientated and only interested in what he needs and getting frustrated. He’s starting to see his sisters’ point of view, But… They’re still not right are they?
James: Um, Hmm. (laughing)
Donna: And it’s those little things. So. James likes to be driven to school, but when I say, “No, you gotta go catch the bus,” he normally would have resisted and waited and waited, but what I’ve notice between the last stem cell visit and this visit is the ability for him to reason, “Okay, mom’s not going to drive me to school today. I just have to get ready and go.” Whereas before, he’d just wait, and just wait until someone just gave in, or at least walked him to the bus stop to get the bus. And what about coming home from school on your own on the bus?
James: I’m more happy.
Donna: And what about walking with the other boys?
James: I talk to them more.
Donna: And do you sometimes walk and get off the bus with the other boys and come the other way?
Donna: So, it’s like he can get off at a stop where boys from his school get off together, and that’s a very new thing to go, “Oh, I need to be…” We all said, “You need to be in a group. You need pals.” What are you nudging me for? What’s the best thing about coming to Stem Cells?
James: The people and it doesn’t hurt. Oh, bringing your parents.
Donna: No, No, not parents. Being on holidays…
James: With mom.
Donna: Exactly! Being on holidays with mom. So if you want a great holiday, leave the kids. Leave the husband. Just come with your boy.
Hi. My name is Jennifer and I’ve been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) since 2003. I started coming to the Stem Cell Institute last year, 2017, in January. My second treatment was in August of last year and now I am here for my third treatment [May 2018].
“I feel strongly that I wouldn’t be where I am here today. I would have been in a wheelchair.”
From my first treatment, I saw major improvements as far as being able to stand without wobbling or bouncing back and forth. I also can feel my toes. I also have more bladder control. The second treatment, I didn’t really see much improvement like I did the first. The first was major. But now I am here for my third and I’m trying to go within six to seven, eight months the most in between my treatments until I see, let’s say 70% improvement.
So, thank you and I support the Stem Cell Institute, and I feel strongly that I wouldn’t be where I am here today. I would have been in a wheelchair.
“Feeling absolutely invigorated after our trip to Panama this weekend, where I received the transformative benefits of stem cell therapy! Our huge thanks and honor to all the doctors and the bright, caring medical staff at the state-of-the-art Stem Cell Institute in Panama City, Panama 🇵🇦. Stem cells saved my shoulder after struggling with excruciating pain from spinal stenosis and, more recently, a torn rotator cuff. Stem cell treatment is truly a next-level health innovation that can reverse the wear and tear we put on our bodies and prevent debilitating disease and injury from escalating further 🔬. This technological advancement will impact humanity in life-changing ways— it has the potential to transform and save MILLIONS of lives!…” View Original Instagram Post

Stem cells are the repair cells of your body. When there aren’t enough of them, or they aren’t working properly, chronic diseases can manifest and persist.
Neil H Riordan, PA, PhD, author of MSC: Clinical Evidence Leading Medicine’s Next Frontier, the definitive textbook on clinical stem cell therapy, brings you an easy-to-read book about how and why stem cells work, and why they’re the wave of the future.
From industry leaders, sport stars, and Hollywood icons to thousands of everyday, ordinary people, stem cell therapy has helped when standard medicine failed. Many of them had lost hope. These are their stories.
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.

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.
Steve: More interactive with peers and family members.
Michelle: He’s definitely more interactive with everyone.
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!
