Stem Cell Therapy for Parkinson’s Disease
“The people are top notch; they’re great to deal with. Feels like a second home to me. I’m ready to get back to martial arts, play my guitar, and get back to normal life with my family. It’s been an incredible journey.”

Stem Cell Therapy for Diabetes
“We are doing treatment for Type 1 Diabetes that I have had for 53 years, arthritis that I have had for about 30 years, and colitis. I believe that stem cell therapy is the medicine of the future.

I personally have met Dr. Anand and I have full faith in his ability to create the formulas and deliver a very high quality product. After my first treatment, I was able to cut my insulin in half. I was able to go off my colitis medication.

As for the arthritis, the inflammation in my hands and feet have reduced. I think stem cell therapy for most illnesses is the only hope we have at this time. Stem cells can reverse things.”

Stem Cell Therapy for Lupus
I have a rare form of lupus and a brain tumor. Symptoms include: severe headache, seizures, loss of vision, double vision, left sided weakness, fibromyalgia, kidney issues. I am currently taking 26 medications. I am on many medications that don’t cure you or put you into remission, and only help with side effects and reduce the pain.

My doctors have pretty much told me that there is nothing more they can do for me and eventually in a short period of time, I will pass away. An expiration date should never be given to a person.

So, we looked into alternatives and found out about stem cell treatment. The staff is great. Dr. Anand has been in touch with me several times throughout the process. He has all my medical records. After the second treatment was when we really started noticing huge improvements.

My seizures, brain bleeds, blood clots, strokes incidents have decreased immensely. I do still have my bad days but my bad days are a lot less then my good days. Do your research and if this is an option that is available for you, do everything in your power to make yourself feel better.
