Will Stem Cells Help My Disease?

It has been more than 12 years since we were told stem cell  help would soon be coming  for chronic diseases affecting families.  Where is the progress, what is working and what is not working?  What is the hype and where is the actual hope?

The Christian Wilde Stem Cell Research quarterly report  has for  several years been reviewing and presenting the information. The information shared with the public focuses on the  progress with  87 chronic diseases  (any one of which) might be affecting you or someone in your family. The information also covers 23 autoimmune diseases, including diabetes,MS, Parkinson’s, Lupus, diabetes, heart failure, joint diseases, arthritis, brain tumors and most cancers in ongoing FDA trials.

The author has also written the book on stem cells for heart failure  with contribution from 6 of the world leaders in cardiovascular stem cell therapy at major universities. Twenty two M people are currently dying of congestive heart failure around the world.  Wilde reports  on the ongoing   success with a one time minimally invasive stem cell procedure being done under the FDA.

HOW TO PREVENT A HOLIDAY HEART ATTACK

Preventing Holiday Heart Attacks

By Christian Wilde,

The medical profession is well aware that heart attacks do indeed increase in number during the holidays and winter seasons.  One major study analyzing heart attacks among 138,602 people recorded a 35% higher number of heart attacks in December and January compared to August of a given year. We would all agree of course–no time of year is a good time for a heart attack!

Triglycerides: Medical researchers studying preventing holiday heart attacks  have identified one of the contributing factors that can increase certain people’s risk during such times in preventing holiday heart attacks. The phenomena known as triglyceride spiking occurs when triglycerides suddenly rise to dangerous levels. This heightened risk can happen after eating a single fat meal such as we might enjoy at festive dinners during Thanksgiving Christmas or New Years. This innocent event can literally provide a direct pathway to a heart attack within 2 to 26 hours following the single high fat meal.  Triglycerides are the fats that circulate in the blood and those individuals (particularly diabetics) who are already fighting higher levels are at greater risk. The advice of the researcher is––those at particular risk may help minimize their risk by simply taking 800 mgs of Vitamin E in combination with 1000 mgs of vitamin C –– prior to consuming the rich holiday dinner.  According to the study, this combination can dramatically control the “spiking.”  More emphasis has in the past few years been increasingly directed at controlling triglyceride level. Dr. Michael Miller M.D., Ph.D., and team at the University of Maryland determined that any triglyceride level over 100 increased one’s heart attack risk three fold.  According to the findings the increase isn’t like cholesterol where the higher the number the greater the risk. With triglycerides, any number over one hundred produced the greater risk. These findings influenced the medical profession to change the nationally accepted guidelines for triglyceride levels,.

Tempers and the Holidays: Another perhaps less obvious reason for holiday heart attacks lies among unresolved resentments, sibling rivalries and a whole host of other emotionally charged situations that often rear themselves when families get together. Tempers explode and blood pressures rise. When someone “loses it” statistics show a two and a third time increased risk of a heart attack within the immediate hours following the incident. Here are a few reasons why:  Under high stress as one might experience during a bout of anger the coronary arteries constrict resulting in a subsequent “arterial spasm.” Fatty cholesterol deposits within the artery becomes welded together closing off the artery initiating a heart attack. When one is in a state of anger, blood becomes viscous and adrenalin and other toxins are released into the bloodstream. In the book how to detect and neutralize Hidden Causes of Heart Attack and Stroke: (inflammation, cardiology’s newest frontier) two case histories representing the endpoint of extreme anger are presented along with many other hidden risk factors and information on how to neutralize them.

“Weekend Warriors” It isn’t difficult to get dad involved in a traditional game of touch football or hoops after Thanksgiving or another holiday dinner.   “What say we work off a few of those extra helpings we just ate?” Is this a good idea if your dad or yourself have not been regularly involved in regular physical conditioning?  http://www.abigon.com/page/page/448087.htm A study involving 1800 participants sponsored by the Institutes of Health looking at the heart attack risk from physical exertion found a 5.9 times (600%) greater heart attack risk within one hour of an actual innocent exertion.  You could extrapolate from this study that someone out of condition, pushing a stalled automobile out of traffic or having to shovel snow or being pushed to the limit in a friendly game of after-holiday-dinner football could unconsciously be putting himself or herself at great risk.  We have just read of three of the reasons heart attacks increase during the winter months and about certain simple life-protecting precautions we might keep in mind to help safe-guard ourselves and our families from America’s number one killer.  The good news is that heart disease and heart attack  is now considered to be 90% preventable at  Let’s all apply a little common sense and favorably affect the number of heart attacks this holiday season.

Alzheimer’s Disease (Is There Benefit From Turmeric?)

UCLA’s Geffen School of Medicine has been very active in studying the phenomenon of why the country of India has been able to boast the lowest number of Alzheimer’s Disease and dementia cases on the planet.  Of the many studies the researchers have performed,  (according to UCLA’s Geffen School of Medicine)  only 1% of citizens over 65 show any sign of developing or having developed dementia or Alzheimer’s.   Researchers from Duke, UCLA and other universities have come to the conclusion that turmeric for disease prevention plays an important and effective role in both treating and preventing this memory robbing disease.   The scientific findings indicate curcumin’s ability to dissolve existing amyloid beta plaques (hallmark of the disease) and  preventing  amyloid plaques from forming in the first place. Researcher/medical health author Christian Wilde, has for over a decade been an ardent voice for turmeric’s many benefits as an anti-inflammatory in mediating against literally hundreds of medical conditions.  Christian Wilde’s Enhanced Turmeric+ Formula has just been awarded the Emord & Associate’s 20th Anniversary award for Excellence in  Health Product Innovation http://www.abigon.com/buying_turmeric.html.

Obamacare, Repeal it or Change It! (seven common sense changes)

 

 

Written by medical researcher/author — Christian Wilde in 2009!

There is no doubt America has needed a healthcare plan but is this the best we can do?

 

Looking back, would these 7 points have helped formulate a more sensible, acceptable plan and is it now too late?  You be the judge.

The U.S. congress is engaged in a healthcare war. History has taught us wars are not won in one battle or in one campaign but through a series of well thought out individual, strategically implemented strategies. Does the entire health plan have to be done at one time, particularly under the country’s current economic conditions?  Could this unprecedented all or nothing approach  be a recipe for disaster?   The subject is vastly complicated and will require a much more comprehensive multi-phased plan than what has been put before the American people.   We are entering unchartered waters, a health plan for all of us  is  far too important an undertaking  to be squandered on a timeline for political expediency.  No one can anticipate the broad based problems that will arise from trying to implement this massive restructuring  and  at one time.     UPDATE 11, 18/13,Gary Bower (D) explained on national TV that besides the problems with the roll-out there are a 1001 other things that are worrisome with  the Obamacare, Affordable Care Act.

Has it been counter- productive for the politicians to exclude the medical professionals from the healthcare debate? A discussion concerning the very profession these medical people have dedicated their lives to? Congress might implement their plan against the doctor’s collective advice and win the battle but ultimately risk losing the war. Consider what a IBD/TIPP Business Daily poll reported:

-(2010)  45% of doctors polled said they would consider leaving their practice or retiring early if the proposed health care bill were to pass- 72% of doctors polled disagree with the administration’s claim that the government can cover 40-47 million more Americans with better quality care and at a lower cost. Sixty percent, or 2 out of 3 practicing physicians said they opposed the current plan. Is anyone listening and why did the administration believe  it all had to be done at one time in today’s economy? It is now believed (6 years later)  that many of the senior more experienced physicians will announce  early retirement after January 1, 2014 rather than have the government dictate medical policy, is it fair to suggest,  “ Obamacare, repeal it , start over?

 1. Catastrophic insurance for all uninsured now. Isn’t this one of the main concerns Americans have? Fear of losing their homes and savings if a catastrophic disease happened in their family? We can start here as a first step and we can do it now. No disqualification for Pre-Existing conditions.  Why not have an “Assigned Risk” insurance pool just as we have successfully used with high risk automobile drivers?  Each insurance company must take a certain amount of patients per year who are assigned to them by the state.

 2. Has anyone been doing the math? Case-in-point, if you or I called our physician’s office today to make an appointment, because of the doctor’s overload we may not be seen for two or more weeks. So, why hasn’t anyone asked the common sense question about the obviously overlooked elephant in the room? The American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) already predicts a shortage of 40,000 physicians in ten years. What will happen when the current overworked number of doctors by mandate of  the affordable care act will suddenly be ordered to care for an additional 40 to 47 million more new patients? Bottom line, it is a mathematical logistical impossibility?

 3. No one is talking about how adult  stem cells will favorably impact overall healthcare costs. FDA trials are already proving billions will be saved. Here are just 3 examples: Heart failure alone in the U.S. costs $39 B a year and yet the trials for heart failure are today transitioning hundreds of “no option” patients to full recovery following a one time, one hour,  minimally invasive procedure. The patient successes since 2000 have been documented in Miracle Stem Cell Heart Repair. Seventeen of twenty MS patients at Northwestern Univ. had already in 2009, gone disease free for 4 years following another one time procedure. The same procedure is being used for 23 autoimmune diseases, including, arthritis, Lupus, MS and diabetes, a disease that costs the healthcare system $103 B a year. This one time procedure for the 23 autoimmune diseases is being proven today, not 20 years in the future, . Over 150 diseases are currently being treated with the patient’s own or donor adult stem cells and discussed in detail in the Christian Wilde’s Stem Cell Research Reports.

 4. If physicians were given tax breaks for doing more pro-bono work with the uninsured and the government implemented comprehensive tort reform against frivolous law suits, would doctors be willing to reciprocate by contributing more time to clinics and urgent care facilities?

 5. How to lower the high cost of drugs? Drug companies present the sound argument for charging high costs because of their limited time of patent protection. Why not exactly double the current patent protection term providing companies automatically cut what they charge the consumer by 50%. Might this eliminate their argument and justification for their exorbitant charges? “turmeric curcumin.

 6. Drug companies spend billions on TV advertising influencing patients to convince their doctors they need a particular drug. Adding insult to injury the companies then build the high advertising costs into the price they charge the patient. Congress has been looking into the question, should TV drug commercials be controlled?

 7. No More “Cherry Picking” by insurance companies. (see #1)  Allow patients to buy insurance across state lines. Here is one last question: Why are congressional members and their families exempt from The Affordable Health Care act while the rest of us are forced to accept and live by it?

In retrospect, had some of these common sense points been included,  would they have  helped formulate a more conscientious health care plan? If  a new plan were put in place would these few  points make it more acceptable to the general  public?  “Obamacare, repeal it”   Change It or Start Over.
