Dr. David Steenblock is a man many in the world of medicine consider on the leading edge in terms of ferreting out as well as crafting safe, non-toxic, principally natural therapies that are geared to encourage a patient’s body to heal itself. Back in the mid-1960s he beat most of his contemporaries to the punch when he began openly championing a very low fat diet as an effective way in which to slow and even reverse arterial blockage. Today this dietary approach to helping manage coronary artery disease is part of the canon of mainstream medicine.
If you look up Dr. Steenblock’s biographical statement on his clinic website, you’ll see a long list of formidable medical and scientific accomplishments including his specialized training in pathology, plus family and integrative medicine. It is his background in pathology, in part, that has helped make him a first rate diagnostician; the kind of keen medical detective that other doctors look to when a case has them stumped.
Dr. Steenblock’s Background
What Dr. Steenblock’s official biography doesn’t tell you is how ably his Iowa farm boy’s penchant for finding quick but effective fixes has served his patients in terms of his finding answers to perplexing, stubborn medical problems that other doctors threw up their hands over. It also says nothing about the considerable sacrifices he has made to develop extremely well-honed methods and medical instincts for arriving at what is best for each and every patient.
In addition, Dr. Steenblock possesses a passion for finding and developing approaches to preventing and treating disease that minimizes side effects. Not surprisingly his “tinkering” has given rise to some rather remarkable and highly effective ways of treating a wide variety of human maladies. For instance, he has become quite expert in the use of plant-based natural drugs as well as a world authority on the medicinal uses of Chlorella. And over the past four decades he has developed and refined a rich repertoire of specific nutritional, dietary and nutraceutical measures aimed at preventing and treating various kinds of cancer, as well as various chronic “diseases of civilization and aging” such as coronary & peripheral artery disease, diabetes type II, aged-related macular degeneration, osteoarthritis and loss of libido and sexual responsiveness.
Dr. Steenblock & HBOT
Then, starting in 1989 Dr. Steenblock blazed new trails in the use of hyperbaric oxygen (HBOT) in tandem with specific IV and other modalities for the effective treatment of stroke, traumatic brain injury, cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. Today his clinic sports a hyperbaric medicine unit that houses four (4) HBO monoplace chambers operated by three (3) certified HBOT technicians.
Dr. Steenblock’s pioneering firsts continued well into the 1990 and 2000s and included his being among the first doctors to champion the use of umbilical cord blood and cord blood stem cells to treat neurologic issues including traumatic brain injury and pediatric cerebral palsy. During the early part of this decade Dr. Steenblock actually became a key medical consultant to cord blood stem cell medicine programs in Mexico, China and elsewhere; programs whose medical directors readily agreed to implement stem cell-based protocols he had crafted and then did so and saw powerful clinical results.
Dr. Steenblock & Stem Cells
Also, Dr. Steenblock went on to play an integral role in a pilot study in Mexico that involved the use of cord blood stem cells in children with cerebral palsy, and found time to co-author one of the very first English language lay-level books on cord stem cell therapy ever published titled “Umbilical Cord Stem Cell Therapy: The Gift of Healing from Healthy Newborns” (Basic Health Publications, 2006).
In this midst of this swirl of medical undertakings and innovations, Dr. Steenblock struck out and launched one of the first ever whole bone marrow transplant programs in the US targeting various neurologic, metabolic and other diseases and medical conditions. In-a-word, this entails the harvesting and then IV infusion of stem cell rich bone marrow aspirate (BMAC) along with a series of separate IV infusions of FDA approved stem cell activators. This legally sanctioned program, which is conducted at Dr. Steenblock’s medical clinic in Mission Viejo, California, has racked up numerous medical success stories including (most recently) symptomatic turnarounds in patients with Parkinson’s disease.
Of course, like many medical pioneers Dr. Steenblock is certainly no stranger to controversy and has met more than his fair share of mainstream resistance to many of the things he has championed and introduced. Not surprisingly, his colleagues and legions of patients are quick to dismiss this sort of thing as “coming with the territory.” That is, the price some doctors pay for pushing the envelope.
