Stem Cell Treatments for Autism – James M’s Story

Donna: Hi, I’m Donna McCairn and this is my son…

James: James

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?

James: Yeah

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?

James: Yeah

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.

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.

Heart failure patient has 3 normal EKGs after stem cell therapy

I was diagnosed 20 years ago. My heart was stopped up. I have 11 stents in my heart. When they put in (stents) nine, ten and eleven they blocked an artery and caused me to have a heart attack. Then 4 years later, I went to the doctor and he did an EKG and he said he needed to do a nuclear scan. That was in May 2011. In July of 2011 he did a nuclear scan and then called me and told me there was nothing else he could do for me.

A friend of mine in Corpus Christi told me about stem cells in Panama. So I checked into it and I came down in October of 2011 and had a treatment.

[Mr. Gray received multiple doses of human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells over the course of several days.]

I didn’t feel anything for 30 days. Then I started feeling better and really felt good. I went to the doctor in January of 2012. He did an EKG and walked in and said, “What have you done?” I said, “What are you talking about?” He said, “You have a normal EKG. You’ve never had one of these before.“ So I asked my wife, “Do you think I ought to tell him?” This was in St. Dominic’s Hospital in Jackson Mississippi; the one that had caused me to have the heart attack. So I asked her, “Reckon I ought to tell him I had got stem cells?” She said, “Yes.” So I told him. He looked like I had cut his throat. He was white as a sheet and he wanted to know, “How did they do it?” and I told him.

Since then I have had 3 normal EKGs. The last one was about 2 months ago.
Well, I had another treatment about 11 months later and it fixed my kidneys the second time. The first time it fixed my heart. It didn’t do anything else but then the second time it fixed my kidneys. I had horse shoe kidneys and I was operated on when I was 33 years old, 35 years old and now I’m 69. My kidney had grown together and my kidneys have been bad my whole life but now they’re fine.

Colorado MS patient returning to Panama for more stem cell therapy

CLIFTON, Colo. – Even with all the advances in medical sciences over the years, multiple sclerosis remains mysterious in both causes and symptoms. There is no known cure for the disease, but one Clifton resident isn’t waiting on the US government anymore and is planning to fly to Panama for a stem cell therapy.

Pam Claypoole was diagnosed with MS almost a decade ago and has slowly lost the feeling in her legs and right arm. She said since the FDA currently doesn’t approve any stem cell therapies for her disease, she’s planning a second trip to Panama in hopes to improve her condition.

Claypoole said she’s made one trip to the Stem Cell Institute in Panama more than a year ago and was amazed by the effects.

“I felt it made a big difference for me right away,” said Claypoole. “My walking was better, the feeling in my feet was better, I had more energy.”

She emphasized her treatment doesn’t involve unborn fetus stem cells but rather the stem cells taken from healthy birthed babies umbilical cords.

Her family is currently planning a live auction on May 14th at the Western Slope Cattleman’s Livestock Auction in Loma. The event starts at 6 pm, and they’re hoping to collect $20,000 dollars to fund Pam’s therapy in Central America.

Sam Harrell’s Stem Cell Journey: Stem Cell Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis

Sam Harrell sent us this homemade video documenting his progress from 2010 until now (2014). Sam was coaching football at Ennis high school in Texas when MS struck him hard, forcing him to retire. Since then, after several rounds of stem cell therapy at the Stem Cell Institute in Panama, Sam has returned to coaching football, something he though that he would never be able to do again.

Stem cell treatments for spinal cord injury – Jamie Richie discusses her improvements

Jamie Richie discussed her treatments and improvements while undergoing her third round of stem cell therapy at the Stem Cell Institute in Panama City, Panama.

Jamie’s first round of treatment comprised 8 intrathecal (into the spinal fluid) infusions of human umbilical cord tissue-derived mesenchymal stem cells (hUC-MSC); 4 intravenous infusions of hUC-MSC; 2 intrathecal infusions of autologous (their own) bone marrow mononuclear cells (BMMC); 2 intravenous injections of BMMC and 19 physical therapy sessions over the course of one month. Her second round of treatments comprised half the infusions of the first.

My name is Jamie Richie. This is my third treatment here. I was diagnosed with a L-1 injury. That was back in January 1st, 2010.

What symptoms did you have before you came for treatment?

I had no movement from my L-1 level down. As far as my right leg, I couldn’t stand on it at all without a brace. If I had a brace on it I could stand and I could walk and all, with braces; and a more aggressive brace. My pain was very strong. My legs; the circulation was worse in my legs. Their color, they were very purple. I could not walk on a treadmill. I had a hard time walking on uneven ground.

What kind of improvements have you experienced since your first treatment?

I’ve improved. I’ve had like five major things after my very first treatment, which was a year ago in January. I was able to stand on my right leg without a brace and walk. My pain level dropped between a 10 down to a 6. It’s controllable. The circulation in my legs; my balance is better. I can carry things while walking with a walker. I can transfer something from one counter to the next. I can be in my kitchen, hold onto the counter and stand and get out a glass out of the cabinets. I can walk on a treadmill and I am actually able to walk three speeds higher than when I first started walking. So I’ve had great gains there. After my second treatment, I was able to walk even stronger on my right leg. I have better bladder control. I got better bladder control out of the first treatment. And I noticed that I didn’t get a whole lot until about two months after the treatment.

How has this experience changed your life?

This experience has changed my life, just one, the nerve pain. I’m more comfortable driving. I can walk barefoot on my right leg without any braces or… It’s just nice being able to walk barefoot. Being able to get onto the treadmill, that’s huge for me. I don’t have to drive to a park or a track and walk on a track. I can get on the treadmill and keep a good pace and keep better tracking of what my progress is. For my balance, being able to stand and take my clothes out of my washing machine and put them in my dryer to standing in the kitchen and being able to take a pan that has water in it and put it in the sink. I was unable to do any of that. If I were standing, would have to have help. Transferring, you know, something from one counter to the next. Walking on uneven ground is big for a life change. If someone comes to the house to pick me up, walking to the car. To be able to walk into a store, I can go to the grocery store, walk in, get into a power chair and do all my grocery shopping there. So, get back onto the walker and get back into my car. It’s given me more independence, which is very big for me.

What would you say to someone who is considering this treatment?

It’s not going to hurt you to try it. It’s going to hurt you not to try it. If I could suggest anything, I would just say as soon as you’re better from your injury where you are not in any more pain and able to get to therapy, I would go. And I would go as soon as you can. Otherwise, you’re going to sit back and go, “Gee what if I wouldn’t of? What if I had gotten?“ There are a lot of people to talk to. There are people who didn’t gain anything. I have not spoken to anybody who didn’t gain anything off a spinal cord injury. Do your homework. It’s worth it and it doesn’t hurt. I mean, it doesn’t hurt me. I can feel completely my whole back. So when I get the injections in my spine… The anesthesiologist is excellent. The doctor is excellent. I will have close to 20 injections in my back and I have had no bad experiences at all. I’ve had no negative side effects at all, none. I’ve only had positive side effects.

Stem cell therapy for traumatic brain injury – Oswaldo Tapanes

Oswaldo Tapanes received multiple injections of human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells and his own bone marrow-derived stem cells over the course of a month both intrathecally (into the spinal fluid) and intravenously at the Stem Cell Institute in Panama. Here is what Mr. Tapanes had to day about his progress thus far:

My name is Oswaldo Tapanes. I have a traumatic brain injury; diagnosed in June 2005.

What symptoms did you have before stem cell therapy?

I couldn’t move my left arm. My vision was pretty bad. My speech is worse than it is now. I could only make sounds. My balance was very, very bad and that’s about it.

What improvements have you noticed since your stem cell treatments?

My speech is better. My eyesight is better. My arm coordination is better. My balance overall and better overall well-being.

How has this treatment changed your life?

It improved my quality of life, so much so that I’ve returned now for a second treatment.

What would you tell others who are considering this treatment?

I would say obviously, do your own research but from my point of view, it’s very safe. The medical science is explained. Everything is there on the web site if you look at it and do your homework. I wouldn’t hesitate coming. If I knew before, I would have came earlier.

Sam Harrell demonstrates his progress after receiving umbilical cord stem cells + fat stem cells for multiple sclerosis

Texas high school Hall of Fame football coach Sam Harrell talks about his progress after undergoing several stem cell treatments for secondary progressive multiple sclerosis at the Stem Cell Institute in Panama City, Panama.

Sam is speaking from the clinic in Panama while undergoing his fourth 5-day course of combination human umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells and fat-derived stromal vascular fraction cells.

“I came by myself this time and that’s just a sign of how much better I’ve gotten. …the last times I’ve come I had to get in a wheel chair [off the plane] and I just walked through the airport this time. People ask me. ‘Do you think it really helps?’. Well, just look! I am walking through the airport with no aids.” [Sam demonstrates how he used to walk before treatment] “I took little steps. If I needed to turn around, I had to do like this.” [Sam demonstrates a slow, shuffling turn] “I don’t have a rope but now I can jump rope.” [sam demonstates jumping rope and walks quickly around the room demonstrating quick changes in directions] “Before, I couldn’t jump rope. I couldn’t do any of that. Now I can do those things. I used to have to think about my steps. I’d have to think about right leg, and left leg and now I don’t have to think. I catch myself doing that. I walk somewhere and I think, ‘hey I didn’t have to think about walking from there to there. I just got up and walked like I used to. Now I can make quick moves. I couldn’t do any of that before.”

“…I coached football and I had to retire. I never thought I’d coach football again. Just this last year, I coached football again. Amazing. I thought I would never do that again. I coached this past year and I plan on doing it again. I’m thank to the Stem Cell Institute in Panama and I am thankful to God above. He’s smiling on me too. It’s an amazing story, I think.”

Umbilical Cord Stem Cells: Regeneration, Repair, Inflammation and Autoimmunity – Neil Riordan PhD (Part 2 of 2)

In part 2, Dr. Riordan discusses how mesenchymal stem cells can affect tissue repair in spinal cord injury and in heart failure; benefit to heart is not the actual MSCs modeling new tissue. It is due to the trophic effects of MSC secretions; In rats, severed spinal cords re-grew after MSCs were implanted but the human MSCs did not form new cord tissue. The trophic factors secreted by the MSCs enable the spinal cord to repair itself.; Trophic factors from MSCs modulate the immune system by blocking clonal expansion of cytotoxic T-cells; There are 35 ongoing clinical trials using mesenchymal stem cells for autoimmune diseases; Safety of donor MSCs; Every mother has MSCs from each baby she has carried; Mothers have a lower incidence of autoimmune disease; Lifespan of mothers increased linearly with each child up to 14; There are 85 ongoing clinical trials using donor MSCs. Allogeneic MSCs from bone marrow have been approved in Canada and New Zealand to treat graft vs. host disease; limbal cells used in corneal transplants are MSCs; MSCs are useful in preventing donated organ rejection; glioma growth was found to be inhibited by MSCs; MSCs eliminated breast cancer in rats.
