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: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bDXbgqFN920

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?

If you are ready to discuss your health situation with true medical pioneers, call toll free 1-800-300-1063 from 9 am to 5 pm (Pacific Time) Monday through Friday or email info@stemcellmd.org

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

    

   

Powerful tips for those with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS)

Recently CAM & adult (nonembryonic) stem cell treatment expert Dr. David Steenblock summarized his innovative spin on treating Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) aka “Lou Gehrig’s disease”. Here is the gist of it:

1) Get tested specifically for gut dysbiosis including yeast, heavy metals poisoning, and Clostridia infection

Dr. Steenblock specifically recommends ALS patients have a CDSA (comprehensive stool test) from Doctor’s Data, a quantitative urine organic analysis from the Great Plains Lab, and a heavy metal challenge test using DMSA with a 6 hour urine sample collection that is then sent to Doctor’s Data.

2) Test for the presence and activity of bacteria, viruses and such that cause the body to produce TNF-alpha and interferon gamma

3) Look for spinal nerve impingement and degenerative joint disease (Some doctors have found unmistakable spinal damage in the very areas where ALS is most active in destroying motor neurons)      

4) Explore where prions have been acquired orally. Dr. Steenblock admits this is harder to zero in on but he feels the majority of ALS patients do have prions at work up and down their spines.

Treatment consists of:

a) Treatment of pathogenic bacteria & yeast and chelation therapy for disclosed toxic levels of heavy metals

b) Treatment of any inflammation of the spinal nerve area which often consists of direct injections of stem cell-rich bone marrow aspirate (concentrate) into the affected spinal areas

c) Intravenous administration of stem cell-rich bone marrow aspirate

d) Ketogenic diet (Avoid all sugars since hypoglycemia from eating sugars causes the compressed spinal nerve to generate more Tumor necrosis factor-alpha)

Dr. Steenblock to attend Israstem 2013 conference in Ramat Gan, Israel!

Israeli FlagDr. David Steenblock will be attending the Israstem 2013 conference being held in Ramat Gan, Israel on April 22-23 (2013)! Dr. Steenblock will be there, in part, to share insights and discoveries with fellow doctors who have been involved in the clinical use of adult (nonembryonic) stem cells as well as with leading stem cell researchers from around the world.

This conference, which is being held in collaboration with the Israel Stem Cell Society (ISCS), will feature presentations by such stem cell luminaries as Joanne Kurtzberg, MD
(Duke University Medical Center), and Arnold Caplan, Ph.D.
(Case Western Reserve University).

Like many of those attending Israstem, Dr. Steenblock brings to the table a wealth of experience in stem cell therapeutics. From 2003-7 Dr. Steenblock was adviser to one of the very first medical clinics in the world (Mexico) to use umbilical cord stem cells to treat neurologic disease and disorders including cerebral palsy (This included participating in a pioneering open pilot study of umbilical cord stem cells and cerebral palsy in eight children which was written up as a paper and appeared in the journal Medical Hypotheses & Research). In 2009 he pioneered the use of stem cell-rich bone marrow aspirate (BMAC) to treat a wide of chronic diseases and disorders, a form of stem cell therapy that is legal in the US. The clinical responses of his cerebral palsy patients have been so consistently impressive that Dr. Steenblock as well as other doctors characterize this treatment as “a major medical advance, one almost certain to be the standard-of-care for CP and similar neurological challenges at some point in the future”.

Dr. Steenblock currently serves as executive director of the clinic he founded, Dr. Steenblock’s Clinic (Alexander Thermos, D.O., D.C., Medical Director), and is also President of the Steenblock Research Institute, a nonprofit research facility that includes a massive medical & scientific library and molecular biology R & D laboratory.  

Those interested in learning more about Dr. Steenblock and the ongoing work of his researchers and clinic healthcare team as well as those who’d like to discuss specific personal medical issues (with Dr. Thermos) are encouraged to call 1-800-300-1063 (9 am to 5 pm Pacific Time, Monday through Friday). Those who prefer to communicate in writing can do so by clicking this link http://www.stemcellmd.org/1005-2/, then completing the form and submitting it.

David Steenblock

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

 Jump to: navigation, search

David A. Steenblock (b. January 7, 1943) is an osteopathic physician, biochemist, product formulator and author who founded the first integrative medicine clinic west of the Mississippi River in 1978 and went on to do extensive clinical work and in-office experimentation with hyperbaric oxygen, chelation therapy, herbal medicine, enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP), whole body periodic acceleration, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF), and (since 2005) stem cell rich bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC). He has at various times been a medical and technical consultant to various foreign clinics doing treatments involving the use of pure umbilical cord stem cells (2203-present). Since 2011 he has served as Chief Wellness Officer for SiriCell Technologies which is conducting adaptive design phase 1 & phase 2 clinical studies in various countries in Asia. Dr. Steenblock is also founder and president of Steenblock Research Institute, a 503(C) nonprofit entity located in San Clemente, California that houses a massive medical and scientific library plus a state-of-the-art molecular biology R & D laboratory.

Education

Dr. Steenblock earned his B.S. degree from Iowa State University, then an M.S. in Biochemistry and Doctor of Osteopathy (D.O.) degree from the College of Osteopathic Medicine and Surgery in Des Moines, Iowa. His post-doctoral training included three years at Case Western Reserve University, one year at the Oregon Health & Sciences University and a clinical Rotating Internship at Providence Hospital in Seattle, Washington. In addition, he did an externship at the University of Washington Department of Hematology/Oncology in 1969 which included work with stem cell-rich bone marrow. This program was run by Dr. Edward Donnall Thomas (who in 1990 was awarded the Nobel Prize in Medicine & Physiology).

Dr. Steenblock obtained additional training and certification including:

Investigator Training for Medical Research, University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry, Strong Memorial Hospital and Western Institutional Review Board (September 2006)

Wound Care Education InstituteCertification in Skin and Wound Management (January 2007)

Certificate in Pain Management and End of Life Care Institute for Medical Quality (January 2007)

Career

Dr. Steenblock commenced his medical career by training in pathology. During the late 1970s he founded the first integrative medicine clinic west of the Mississippi River (Wholistic Medical Center, El Toro, California) which focused on the prevention and treatment of chronic degenerative diseases. His clinic relocated to Mission Viejo, California in 1994 and for the next 5 years operated as “The Brain Therapeutics Medical Clinic”. In 2006 his clinic became “David A. Steenblock, D.O. Inc., Personalized Regenerative Medicine” (Dr. Steenblock’s Clinic) and has since focused on personalized medical intervention for various chronic diseases plus age-related issues and aging management (antiaging). Among the modalities Dr. Steenblock utilizes is hyperbaric oxygen, chelation therapy, herbal medicine, enhanced external counterpulsation (EECP), whole body periodic acceleration, pulsed electromagnetic field therapy (PEMF), and (since 2005) stem cell rich bone marrow aspirate concentrate (BMAC).

During his lengthy career Dr. Steenblock has also held a number of positions and appointments including:

President, The International Oxidative Medicine Association (1995 – 1998)

President, Orange County Osteopathic Society (1985)

American College of Advancement in Medicine Board of Directors (1981 – 1985) Treasurer (1985 – 1991) Chairman, Scientific Committee (1990 – 1991)

Medical Editor, Let’s Live Magazine (1986 – 1993)

Assistant Clinical Professor of Medicine, Preceptor Training Program, University of Michigan College of Osteopathic Medicine (1982 – 1986)

Preceptor, Bastyr University Center for Natural Health (2004 – 2006)

Controversy

Dr. Steenblock has been subject to regulatory action by the Osteopathic Medical Board of California, something publicized in detail on Quackwatch by Dr. Stephen Barrett in entries such as Regulatory Action against David Steenblock, D.O. (1993-1994) and Regulatory Action against David Steenblock, D.O. (1997-2000). What these decisions and Dr. Barrett’s coverage of them do not reflect are issues, contrary evidence and claims of bias put forward by Dr. Steenblock and others. These have been summarized in Goliath v. David.

In addition, many critics and skeptics have taken exception to Dr. Steenblock’s use of hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) for chronic stroke, something he began using in conjunction with specific IV and other therapies in 1988. Quackwatch’s Stephen Barrett stated in “A Skeptical Look at David Steenblock, D.O.” (2010) that “It is true that strokes are caused by lack of oxygen to the brain. However, there is no scientific evidence that increasing oxygen delivery to the brain after an acute episode is over can stimulate cells to regenerate.”

In 2013, a major randomized, prospective Israeli study was published in PLOS Clinical Trials in which the authors reported that “… HBOT can lead to significant neurological improvements in post stroke patients even at chronic late stages”1

Dr. Barrett’s highly critical article titled “A Skeptical Look at David Steenblock, D.O.” (mentioned above) was rebutted in Beware of Quackwatch (2012).

Dr. Steenblock’s Clinic – The Road to Your Healing Starts Here!

What your doctor doesn’t know CAN hurt you

We are now up to our eyeballs in election year politics including debates over health care reform. Dr. Steenblock has tossed his hat in the ring — in the sense he has just published his thoughts on how to reform our (ahem) ailing health care system. Click this link to read Dr. Steenblock’s article

One of Dr. Steenblock’s salient observations concerning how a lack of knowledge about alternatives is hurting patients is “must reading”:

“Doctors (MDs) would have you believe they know everything about your health and are given to pressure their patients to believe they have all the answers and criticize those ideas and practices from outside of mainstream medicine. Unfortunately, the average MD was never trained as a nutritionist or as a physical therapist, acupuncturist, chiropractor, massage therapist, herbal medicine expert, etc. and thus cannot offer patients much, if any, information on alternatives to the drugs and surgical procedures they are trained to know all about. All they can do is raise doubts about them or outright dismiss them.”

 This lack of knowledge, experience and expertise in scientifically validated holistic-alternative methods and measures means that patients all across the USA miss out on gentle but effective treatment options for their aches & pains and chronic ills. Fortunately, patients don’t have to settle for status quo or “prescription pad” medicine as Dr. Steenblock is among those rare physicians who is an expert on a great many (if not most) holistic-alternative (CAM) methods and modalities including herbal medicine and therapeutic nutrition, as well as very sophisticated leading edge forms of care such as hyperbaric medicine, EECP, IV nutritional therapies and stem cell-rich whole bone marrow treatments (Money back guarantees on his bone marrow treatments for cerebral palsy & joint problems). And, he is just a phone call away! (Free 5 minute consultations to boot!)

So while it is true most physicians cannot draw from both the world of mainstream and CAM therapies, Dr. Steenblock not only is equipped to do so but adroitly does so on a daily basis.

To take advantage of Dr. Steenblock’s generous FREE 5 minute phone consultation just call 1-800-300-1063. Tell his friendly front office people you found his clinic on this blog site (www.davidsteenblock.com)

If you are ready for the best, give Dr. Steenblock a call.  He is offering stem cell consultations today! To arrange for yours just call his clinic toll free at 1-800-300-1063.  

How does Dr. Steenblock go about harvesting bone marrow?

bone marrow stem cellsHow does Dr. Steenblock go about harvesting Bone Marrow?

As most of you who visit this blog know Dr. Steenblock pioneered harvesting a patient’s own stem cell-rich bone marrow and then giving it back. The clinical outcomes have been impressive (Some of which can be found on www.stemcellmd.org.) The question has been raised: How exactly does Dr. Steenblock do a bone harvesting procedure? Here it is in-a-nutshell:

The harvesting of bone marrow is geared to be as easy and painless as possible. Typically, bone marrow is removed from a thick bone site as the tibia (big bone) in the lower leg or the crest of the hip bone. This process normally takes about 30-45 minutes. The first step is administrated of a local anesthetic to the area where the extraction will take place. Then, a thin needle is introduced and employed to harvest around 150-200 milliliters (~5-6 oz) of bone marrow. Most patients do not feel the bone marrow being removed. Once the bone marrow has been harvested, it is given back by either intravenous (IV) or intrathecal (lumbar puncture) depending on the condition being treated.

Dr. Steenblock has, BTW, also come up with a way to purge out old, devitalized stem cells from the bone marrow which gets the body busy making new, robust ones: http://stemcell.md/newsletters/nov2010.pdf. One way readers can do this at home is to use the all natural stem cell mobilizer Dr. Steenblock created which he dubbed “Stemgevity”: www.stemgevity.com

Dr. Steenblock’s Comprehensive Stem Cell Treatment Method

stem cellsThe stem cells in your bone marrow helps keep you healthy day-in and day-out.

But when injury or disease strikes, these stem cells rush to the damaged or diseased tissues and facilitate healing and restoration. Not unexpectedly aging saps the vitality of these stem cells.  Dr. David Steenblock, in fact, found clear evidence that the marrow of older folks contains lots of stem cells that tend to be “sluggish” or devitalized, while the bone marrow of people under 40 contains more robust ones. Acting on this discovery, he set out to develop new therapies to “revitalize” the bone marrow of people over the age of forty. This background will help you better understand this better:

Each of us has in the hollows of our bones both red bone marrow tissue and yellow fat. When we are children our bones are full of active healthy bone marrow that is growing and releasing healthy stem cells 24/7 year round. This is the reason why children can heal so much better than older people.

As we get older our bodies make less new tissue including that in our bones, and as a result there is a shift in the amount of red bone marrow to fat present. This decrease in the quantity of stem cell-rich red bone marrow in our bones is one reason healing and repair is slower and less efficient. Interestingly, Dr Steenblock observed that older folks who hike in the high mountains or donate blood tend to have healthier, more abundant red bone marrow than their less active peers. This is due to that fact that exertion at high altitudes as well as blood donation creates a state of hypoxia or oxygen deprivation in the body. This prompted Dr. Steenblock to add Intermittent Hypoxia Therapy to his bone marrow revitalization approach.

In addition, the bone marrow in people with Parkinson’s disease or dementia has diminished in quantity and quality to the point that a great many of the cells have entered into state called “senescence”. They are in-a-word too old to do anything but sit in-place and take up space. To offset this Dr. Steenblock tried prodding the body to mobilize these tired old stem cells into the patient’s blood stream by use of some hormones called colony stimulating factors. He figured once these devitalized cells had left the bone marrow new, healthier stem cells would be created to replace them.  And this is exactly what he found! Indeed, Dr. Steenblock discovered that in two weeks time patient bone marrow had produced upwards of 10 times more healthy stem cells than were present prior to the injection of colony stimulating factors!

Over time Dr. Steenblock added other things to his comprehensive stem cell revitalizing approach and tested this on patients. The clinical responses seen were far superior to what had been seen in older folks given simple whole bone marrow transplants, i.e., marrow was harvested and given back without pre- or post- transplant use of Intermittent Hypoxia Therapy, CSF injections, etc. Many also experienced anti-aging effects like better skin color, a healthier “glow” and fewer wrinkles

After Dr. Steenblock was satisfied with his improved or enhanced bone marrow transplant method he then pushed the envelope by added the use of fat derived stem cells (by themselves and in combination with bone marrow.) So far the clinical results have been very impressive, even dramatic! You will find some of these patient accounts on www.strokedoctor.com as well as www.stemcell.MD.
