  • How I Fixed My Kneecap Pain in Seconds

      I’m down in Grand Cayman seeing patients at our licensed advanced practice site and injured my right knee yesterday. I was pretty bummed as my family was coming down and I could barely walk. However, I eventually fixed it with a simple therapy that can teach you how… Read More

  • Do Physicians Have a Legal Responsibility to Know About Amniotic and Umbilical Cord Scams?

    We have a real problem. We have hundreds of physicians, chiropractors, and alternative-health practitioners who have been lying to patients about injecting them with millions of young stem cells from amniotic fluid and/or umbilical cord tissue. On its face, since there are no living mesenchymal stem cells in these… Read More

  • Is the ITB Connected to the Lateral Meniscus?

    You would think that in the early 21st century we would have figured out everything there is to know about the human knee, but you would be wrong. In fact, it was just a few years ago that the anterior lateral ligament was discovered. How is that possible? Because… Read More

  • Harry Adelson Stem Cell Review, the Biohacker, and the Chinese Hamburger

    Many years ago I was in China for business and hadn’t eaten in two days. I ordered a hamburger from room service, and what arrived wasn’t quite a hamburger. That’s how I feel about a new biohacker video that shows Harry Adelson, a naturopath, performing a stem cell procedure. What… Read More

  • Your Body Is a Stem Cell Machine: Another Reserve Stem Cell Population

    One of the big myths going around right now, started by clinics using dead umbilical cord and amniotic tissue, is that you’re too old to have useful stem cells. All of that is, of course, completely false. If you’re alive, your body has huge populations of stem cells helping… Read More

  • Should I Have Artificial Disc Replacement?

    If you read this blog, you know that I often write about what I experience on a day-to-day basis. Yesterday, I spoke to a patient from New York who had already had an artificial disc implanted in his back that failed and was contemplating another in his neck. Given that… Read More

  • Liveyon PURE: More Expensive than Gold, but No Mesenchymal Stem Cells?

    The entire “birth tissue in a vial” industry is based off one simple concept. As a doctor, you’re not buying a bottle of amniotic fluid or cord blood; you’re buying a vial of large numbers of young stem cells. This is why 1 cc of this stuff sells for… Read More
