I just went to my initial consultation at the Brain & Body Health Center in Winchester, VA yesterday. The doctor I met with also has Lyme so understood my perspective. I plan to have a 2cc injection of umbilical cord stem cells in May there at that clinic to help with my many health issues and associated symptoms - Lyme, Babesia, hypothyroid, MTHFR, etc. It's well under $10K for that amount of cells, and they seem to think it will at least help with joint pain, air hunger, and strengthening my weak immune system which they think is my root problem for all my health issues.
They're all about rebuilding the body from the ground up and targeting root issues rather than just putting out fires of the various symptoms I've been feeling. The muscle testing they did on me was fascinating. I think the plan once the stem cells have had a chance to work for a few weeks is to see how the dust settles and then start tackling any remaining symptoms with diet, homeopathies, herbs, etc. They aim to reduce the amount of supplements I take as much as possible. The clinic (and maybe the entire USA) has only been cleared in the last couple years to use stem cell technology, and this place in particular has only begun to use them on patients in the last six months. The FDA is closely following them to use their statistics to eventually help make the technology FDA Approved rather than just FDA Cleared.
There are no negative side effects to using this stem cell therapy. They told me they have seen a 90% success rate in their patients, and they said with my many health issues I am almost guaranteed to experience relief in at least one area of concern. There's just a possibility it may not target every single thing that I need help with.
As background, I am 33 years old and have had Lyme and Babesia symptoms for a little over a year. I've been on lots of antibiotics and herbal supplements over the past 10 months, and despite being on a current regime of taking meds/supplements 70 times per day I am still not much better than when I started. I'm hoping by strengthening my immune system with the stem cell treatment I will be better able to finally get over the debilitating effects of the disease and associated problems that have popped up since being diagnosed. I am cautiously optimistic about the clinic and therapy they provide, but I can provide a better review post treatment in a few weeks or months.
