The following is a questions and answer email exchange between a potential patient and us
When patients come to see you what day do they normally fly in and fly out? Are all the appointments in the am? Will a schedule be given? *We have had heavy metal testing done, which were in normal range, as well as 2 rounds of stem cells in Panama so chelation is not on the table.
Most people fly in on a Monday and leave on Thursday as Monday flights tend to be cheaper. The only days to fly in that don’t work are Friday or Saturday unless you want to stay more than 4 days in town. Our office manager sends out schedules a week before treatment as she must arrange transportation for all patients in town at that time. Our head physician Dr. Romo is experienced in chelation treatments, but if there is no metal toxicity then there is no reason for it.
How many children with autism have you treated with SCT? What the success rate?Are there any parents that have given you permission to share their information to other parents for questioning? If so can you please pass on any testimonial or contact information?
We have only treated adults with autism at our clinic so far. We have our first child who is 2 years old arriving for treatment this week (October 14th, 2019) and then we have 3 other families with autistic children arriving over the next 2 months. They are all from a group in the UK that communicate with each other about their children’s autism so I am sure they will be fine to provide feedback and talk with you post treatment.
What the average viability percentage?What is the percentage of placenta vs umbilical tissue MSC stem cells?
The stem cell viability is as follows: Post cultivation
Day 1 – 99.8% Day 2 – 99.7% Day 3 – 99.5% Day 4 – 99.3% Day 5 – 97.1% Day 6 – 76%
This is why we almost always administer the stem cells within 24 hours of cultivation. The percentage of placenta to umbilical tissue mesenchymal stem cells changes with every batch. All Mesenchymal stem cells act the same in the body so it doesn’t matter what the ratio is. Dr. Arnold Caplan, the man that named them mesenchymal stem cells has been very outspoken about this as seen here – https://youtu.be/qa3mMNH8Jfw Unfortunately it has become a marketing strategy for companies to say one type is better than another when the truth is that they all work. The difference is in how fast they replicate and since the placenta and umbilical cord are attached all those stem cells replicate at the same rate. The only instance you would be selective would be with an autoimmune disease as your stem cells are not working properly to fight it so you would not want to use your own bone marrow of fat derived cells.
How many stem cells would be administered to a 6.5 year old weighing 42lbs?
How long would the process take? Is this a drip or a push IV?
We recommend 1.4 million stem cells per lb of body weight so a 6.5 year old at 42lbs = 58.8 which we would have to round up to 60 million in an IV. We would also do 3 sessions of 22 million stem cells administered via nebulization. The nebulized stem cells cross the mucus membrane into the blood stream and then head straight to the brain whereas the IV stem cells go lungs, heart then the rest of the body. The IV cells are needed as intestinal inflammation is thought to be part of the problem with autism so the IV cells can go there and help guide the repair and regeneration of whatever is causing that inflammation plus strengthen the immune system. The IV takes about an hour and each nebulized session takes about an hour.
Do you sedate?
We do not use sedation, but if you have a recommendation as to what you know works for your child we are not opposed to it.
Do you offer a 5% discount on payments wired instead of CC payment?
We do offer a 5% discount for wire transfers. Our bank is a subsidiary of Bank of Melon in NY so it works out to be a national wire transfer. We also offer the discount for payment with bitcoin, litecoin, ripple, bitcoin cash or etherium.
What resort do you recommend for families as an all inclusive? I saw a few on your website but looking for FAMILY AND ALL INCLUSIVE. What is the range from the clinic that you will provide transportation. You stated that you will book the appointment once the travel plans are already set in stone. What happens if for some reason you are not available for the time travel plans are booked?
I recommend the occidental hotel or paradise village resort for family friendly accommodations. They are both across the street from our hospital and beautiful all inclusive beachfront resorts at great prices. Our transportation range extends from downtown Puerto Vallarta to Bucerias. There is no way for us to be too busy to accommodate you. We have 2 rooms for treatments and 2 doctors available. IV and nebulized treatments can be done any time of day so don’t worry, if you book we will take care of you.
I’m interested in the placenta injection in the stomach fat. Can you expand on that more please?
The lyophilized placenta injection is not required, but highly recommended. It is from placenta that was used to cultivate stem cells. This tissue is freeze dried (lyophilized) and then reconstituted with saline solution for injection. In the animal kingdom most animals eat the placenta as it is loaded with hormones, nutrients, vitamins and minerals. There are many clinics in the US opening that will lyophilize a mothers placenta and put it into capsules for pills she can take to stave off post partem depression. By injecting this subcutaneously the hormones, nutrients, vitamins and minerals are able to slowly release into the system for the next 3 months. This keeps the patients hormone, mineral, vitamin and nutrient profiles optimized which is like giving the stem cells more bricks to build the house. I like to visualize the stem cells as the managers on a construction project. They send out the signals to guide the cells to repair and regenerate, but those worker cells need enough bricks to build the house.
Let me know if you have any more questions.
