I'm brand new on this forum.
Seashell, KaseyKat or others,
Is there anyone who is willing to connect via phone? Is there a way to privately share contact info?
For me it's extremely difficult and painful to type, or be in front of computer. I'd love to talk with others who are open to phone calls? I'm in CST, USA.
I have had long term, severe, debilitating chronic pain. (root causes are mostly unknown). I've spent years of seeing multiple specialists, getting tests, trying many conventional and complementary therapies, etc)
I have been suffering terribly with a complicated multiple problem-Mystery illness. Not conclusive but some say: pssible pudendal nerve neuropathy, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, possible chronic lyme infection and co-infections, SI joint disfunction, coccydynia, Auto-immune Hashimotos thyroiditis, Fibromyalgia, depression, anxiety, PTSD, poor sleep.
I'm starting to research stem cell therapy myself as of TODAY! I'm considering a local clinic in Twin cities, MN, USA offering treatments via IV for the whole body from Mothers umbilical cord stem cells. Donors have gone thru rigorous screening. Stem cells do not include any blood, and go thru DNA Neutralization. I will investigate how or IF they can assure me that the donor does NOT have LYME disease and co-infections?? A friend contracted her Lyme disease thru a blood transfusion, so this is a risk I'm very concerned about and I'd need reassurance!
According to a knowledgable patient care case manager I spoke with at the clinic, Umbilical cord stem cells are the most recently (FDA?) approved source method providing the youngest, strongest stem cells available for treatments to date.
They are having such great success with this, they are doing less and less of the other types of stem cells mentioned such as stomach fat cells, bone marrow, etc.
4 cc units total would be administered in 1 or multiple IV-sessions. Basically I understand the stem cells communicate with the body signals to go to damaged, inflamed, painful, diseased area's and will copy the healthy tissues. I'm told they divide 64 times, and multiply over 3-6 months. Can help stop progressive disease processes, aging, pain, and can indirectly balance the bodies norepinephrine & serotonin. This can improve mood, hope, and quality of life. Some even experience Eye sight or hearing improvement.
Of course, this is WAY beyond my financial means and insurance doesn't cover. I hope I would not need follow up Booster treatments! If this could relieve this horrific chronic pain, I would figure out somehow, some way to pay for it.
Any input, personal experience, success stories, support, especially via phone is greatly appreciated.
