Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) – What it is & How We Can Treat it

If you are amongst a large group of the population who is suffering from degenerative diseases, then you may want to look no further!

Dr. David Steenblock, stem cell expert and alternative medical doctor, maybe close to finding the key to treating diseases such as Amyotophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). To learn more about how Dr. Steenblock can help ALS, just watch our videos below!

Anti-Aging Secrets with Dr. David Steenblock

Ever wonder the secrets of anti-aging? Watch Dr. Steenblock’s video where he discusses some of the tips and tricks to anti-aging. Watch here:



Patient Sees Incredible Results After Suffering from a Stroke, Heart Attack and Atrial Fibrillation!

Treatment for StrokeWe had a 55 Year old Male in the office a few months ago that had previously developed problems with his Heart – after a Heart attack, he developed a ‘Rhythm’ problem (Atrial Fibrillation) with his Heart as well, and as a result of the new issue he created a blood clot in his heart that went up into the Left side of his Brain, causing an Ischemic Stroke.  He now had 3 Major problems to deal with – his previous Heart Attack, the Heart Rhythm Problem (Atrial Fibrillation – he is now on Coumadin), and then the Stroke which left him with some Right Sided weakness, most profoundly in his Right Arm which was rendered essentially useless to him.

After getting nowhere further in Physical Rehabilitation, a couple of years later he called our office with the hope that Stem Cell Therapy could help him.  He fatigued easily, had no function of his Right Arm and had problems with his Right Leg ‘weakness’.  Our workup showed that he also had a significant amount of Heavy Metals which he was able to Chelate (taking some oral capsules to purge his body of the Heavy Metals), and some significant problems with his GI tract.  The GI problems would affect his absorption and would definitely create problems with the Stem Cells if we had just given them to him.  Instead, we placed him on a low Carbohydrate diet, some Pro-Biotics, and an oral Anti-Fungal prescription.

He came to the office hopeful – and we performed an Autologous (self)  Bone Marrow Stem Cell Transplant with him.  He went home and diligently worked in therapy.  I had spoken to his wife today – and she said that he made great progress in his stamina, and his Right Arm has made great strides with movement and strength.  Motion at the wrist / hand was greatly improved, but there is still residual weakness in the movement / grip of his fingers.  He’d made tremendous progress!

He will continue with therapy (which he had failed BEFORE the Stem Cell Transplant) to work on his Arm and Leg.  He is continuing with the Stemgevity (to stimulate further Stem Cell production) and the Pro-Biotics.  Once he ceases to make further progress, we may again pursue further BMSCT therapy – as it has given him so much hope and progress.

It’s stories like this that are so ‘heartening’, for someone to work so hard and make progress after being told “. . . nothing further can be done . . .” he now looks forward to the years ahead and have a better QUALITY of life in the future.

The Amazing Benefits of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)

Hyperbaric Oxygen TherapyHyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) works just as its name implies, hyper meaning more of, baric meaning pressure and oxygen. Treatment involves simply breathing up to 100% oxygen while inside a chamber which is pressurized to a pressure above one atmosphere. The treatment is so simple patients from all ages are eligible and most either relax and watch TV or take a nap during treatment!

By breathing oxygen under pressure your body absorbs it at a rate unequivocal to breathing O2 at just ambient room pressure, you literally become saturated with O2, one of the mechanisms of this occurs by the oxygen not needing hemoglobin (an iron binding compound within blood that transports O2) to transport it through the body and it is dissolved directly into the blood plasma this effect has only been observed breathing O2 under pressure.

In America we have just barely utilized this amazing modality in a medical setting with only fourteen accepted indications for HBOT. Other countries for example Russia currently have over sixty accepted indications for HBOT. Unfortunately if you are a patient with a condition other than the fourteen indications your use of HBOT is considered off-label and you are obliged to pay out of pocket for your treatment.

One of these off-label areas that has seen a remarkable improvement is Developmental Delay in children especially Autism. Countless children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) have seen life changing improvements in as little as month’s worth of treatment. Studies in this field showed positive results in physiology, behavioral, as well as cognitive. It works on by treating the entire body and affects many different issues these kids have. With ASD most children have been burdened with a toxic load of mercury and or lead.

HBOT is a powerful antioxidant and helps the body to clear out all these toxins out of the body and even the brain. Most ASD children suffer with chronic fungal and or bacterial infections and HBOT helps knock these out because HBOT is bacteriostatic and fungicidal. HBOT has also shown to promote neurogenesis (formation of nervous tissues) and produce new brain cells, which was previously thought impossible.

There are so many benefits it would be impossible to list them all in this article so I will leave you a testimonial from one of our patients parents, “ Our son Luke is high functioning and just completed his 27th treatment this morning. Luke participates in an ABA program at home and has a shadow at preschool. What I have noticed since starting his therapy is that all four of Luke’s therapists have reported that Luke’s behaviors have diminished significantly and he is more compliant. My husband and I believe the HBOT therapy has helped Luke increase his speech and language skills. We plan to complete 40 treatments as recommended.”

Ozone Therapy and UBI: The Benefits & Advantages

Ozone TherapyBoth alone, and in combination, ultraviolet light and medical ozone application to blood as a bio-oxidative medical therapy has many beneficial effects. One advantage is the multifaceted way in which the inactivation of bacteria, viruses, and fungi/yeast occur. By disrupting the integrity of bacterial cell walls through the oxidation of phospholipids and lipoproteins, the bacterial infection is eradicated. In fungi, cell growth is inhibited at certain stages and therefore, prohibits continued overgrowth. Viruses are inactivated when the viral capsid is damaged and the reproductive cycle of the virus is disrupted through peroxidation at the virus-to-cell contact point. The weak enzyme coatings on cells that make them vulnerable to viral invasion are made susceptible to peroxidation and therefore, eliminated from the body which triggers a production of new healthy cells to replace the damaged ones. Other benefits include enhanced blood circulation, increased oxygenation of tissues, and activation of the immune system. Done properly, bio-oxidative therapies can be an effective, safe, and natural alternative to traditional treatments for a number of different maladies. (Mandhare, et al.,  n.d.).

Hormones & Energy Problems?

The prior weekend I went to the Restorative Medicine Conference held in San Diego for an update as to what new thoughts there are in Integrative Medicine with regard to Hormone BalancingDr’s Braunstein and Wilson gave particularly interesting talks about treating Thyroid related issues.  Dr. Braunstein cited all the literature and the current testing methods available to point to the fact that the United States – as a Country – is generally deficient in Iodine.  Iodine is necessary for Thyroid Hormone production, and also provides some ‘protection’ against aggressive Breast Disease.  Interesting . . . with all the ‘PINK RIBBONS’ floating around, I have never once heard anyone in traditional Medicine speak of the importance of Iodine / Iodide in the relationship to Breast Disease.

As well, the counterpart to the Thyroid in the body’s regulation of energy levels is the Adrenal Gland, as they compensate for one another with regularity – i.e. a deficiency in one will be compensated for by the function of the other, etc.  However, the Adrenal Gland is very much under appreciated and under diagnosed/treated when dysfunction arises.  All too often it is missed – as it is just not thought of.  There are a variety of methods of looking at the Adrenal Gland Hormones and Neurotransmitters – from a ‘timed’ blood draw, to a 4 part saliva test to look at Cortisol levels in a 24 hour time frame.  Looking at Neurotransmitters  with a simple Urine Test (as the Adrenal Gland is actually connected and transmits messages via Neurotransmitters – just like the Nervous System) can indicate areas of dysfunction related to Chronic Pain, Depression, Chronic Fatigue, etc.

As in everything in this life – ‘BALANCE’ is what is important.  So many people are walking around fatigued and out of sorts – when some simple (previously undone) testing can get to the root of (or at least in part address) so many functional problems.  The tests are simple, and painless.  Integrative and Restorative Medicine has come a long way in the ability to detect things with simple tests – and finding the problem is the key to Restoring the body back to ‘BALANCE’ – using Nutrition, Herbs, Minerals, and Bio-Identical Hormone replacement to get the job done.

Check out the CHRISTIAN POST story on clinic stem cell success story, Andrew Burkhart

Perhaps you have come across news magazine or TV segments concerning Andrew Burkhart, 6, who has cerebral palsy and how he has benefitted from treatments with hyperbaric oxygen and his own stem cell-rich bone marrow done by Dr. Steenblock (2011, 2012) and Dr. Thermos (2013).  If not, you should check out a story on him that appeared on 9-16-2013 in the CHRISTIAN POST at



Nota bene: Dr. Thermos operated as a flight surgeon on an intermittas muneris in facultate basis in the USAF. He was never certified a flight surgeon.

Out of treatment options or just need better ones?

Girl Holding PlantDr. David Steenblock has practiced medicine for over 40 years and has devoted his career to trying and testing various combinations of therapies and treatments to elicit a healing response in patients who by-and-large are saddled with intractable and even terminal medical diseases and conditions that were not responsive to conventional medical treatments, or were for a time and then ceased being so. Among the many things he has tried in various forms and combinations down through the years are hyperbaric oxygen (He was among the first doctors in the world to try HBOT on acute stroke. It worked fabulously!), heavy metals IV chelation therapy, low fat diets to halt and even reverse coronary artery disease (since 1966 actually), and most recently the harvesting of patient’s own stem cell rich bone marrow and then its infusion back into their bodies by primarily intravenous (IV) means.   

The treatment regimens Dr. Steenblock prescribes are sometimes expensive and typically not covered by insurance or such.  Not surprisingly some patients go into treatment having filtered out all Dr. Steenblock’s admonitions and caveats concerning the experimental nature of their agreed to course of treatment, then complain bitterly if their treatment results do not measure up to what they thought or assumed was supposed to be the case.

 You might be tempted to say, “Well, why do this out-of-the-box medical stuff anyway? It sounds like a high risk-low return sort of thing. Why not leave this sort of work to researchers in major universities and government funded institutions?” The simple fact is that many medical discoveries and innovations would not have seen the light of day of it were not for individual practitioners “doing their (experimentation) thing.” In fact, it is no secret that many original medical ideas and trailblazing new spins on treating disease begin with a single doctor’s “tinkering.”

In Dr. Steenblock’s case, he has accrued some sometimes impressive case histories of turnarounds that involve novel off-label treatments and combinations of treatments (Click to access informational & patient testimony videos on YouTube). Many of his regimens produced profound clinical improvements that were subsequently replicated in many other patients with similar medical issues, while in some instances only a subset of patients got better (Something possibly linked to shared genetic features among those who did respond favorably.) He has also come up with some unique spins on the cause of some chronic diseases, something informed not just by his keen powers of observation and decades of medical experience, but also by years he spent working as a pathologist (Pathologists being “medical detectives” who are experts in figuring out the “who done it” behind causes of disease and death.)  

And like all research-oriented clinicians or experimentalists, Dr. Steenblock has had his share of non-responders. He has also had treatment approaches he devised bomb out. In such instances he has revised and retested them. Those that did not produce results no matter what, he abandoned.

Starting in February of this year (2013), Dr. Steenblock began reducing his clinical load in order to take part in stem cell R & D work going on at his namesake nonprofit research institute (Steenblock Research Institute) in San Clemente, CA.  As part of this shift in his focus Alexander Thermos, D.C., D.O., affiliated with his clinic and was trained by Dr. Steenblock in his many innovative techniques & procedures including use of stem cell-rich bone marrow (aspirate).  You can watch a brief (6m10s) video on Dr. Thermos including his education and military service (former USAF officer & flight surgeon*) by clicking this link:

If you have a medical condition or chronic disease that has not responded to conventional or standard medical care or has but your doctors tell you no more improvements are likely to occur, who will you turn to (Clinical trials notwithstanding which are great though many people find that do not meet inclusion criteria)? Doctors who will likely tell you the same thing you’ve been told previously? Or should you see medical innovators such as Drs. Steenblock & Thermos who do the sort of informed “in-office experimentation” that history shows is a crucial driving force in producing genuine medical progress?
