T he S tem C ell A dvantage An Education With Joe Radich

I’ve been working in the field of stem cell therapy for about four years now, and in that time, I’ve seen many incredible things. Before shifting into stem cell therapy, I practiced orthopedics from the perspectives of both functional and integrated medicine. It wasn’t until I saw the power and potential behind stem cells that I gradually shifted my approach in treatment. The more I learned about stem cell technology and therapy, the more I realized this rapidly-advancing field could greatly benefit my patients, and really, people everywhere. While many people assume that stem cells are used primarily for joint conditions and orthopedics, the fact is, stems cells are useful in treating a broad number of issues. When patients learn just how beneficial stem cells are, they are astonished — just as I was. I’ve watched stem cell therapy become a genuine alternative to several types of conventional procedures, including many procedures doctors would label invasive. And not only can stem cell therapy be an effective alternative to many conventional orthopedic procedures (not to mention a number of corrective procedures for injuries, degenerative diseases, and other disorders), it can serve as an alternative to many types of cosmetic procedures, as well. I’m talking about skin and hair rejuvenation, including stopping and even reversing hair loss, and reversing the look of aging. Stem cell therapy has the potential to unlock a new era of health and wellness, helping people feel better inside and

out. And to that point, and for anti- aging applications, for example, stem cells work to heal your body from the inside out. You can look years younger without having to rely on chemicals or treatments that don’t last and certainly don’t use your own cells to your benefit. Stem cell therapy was very much a natural progression in what I was already doing in orthopedics. In many respects, both functional medicine and integrated medicine are stepping stones from more conventional methods of treatment — that is, treatment that emphasizes medications and surgery. I initially learned about stem cell therapy at a medical conference. I was astounded at what I was seeing and how people were being helped. From there, I made it my mission to learn about the field. It’s a field that is definitely expanding. That’s what is truly astonishing about stem cell technology. Researchers around the globe are hard at work unlocking the secrets of stem cells and learning how to apply them to different forms of treatment. And not only that, we’re also gaining incredible new insight into how we can put our own cells to work using our own adipose tissue.

For me, I’m thrilled to be in a position to educate others about the benefits of stem cell therapy. Through education, people can become advocates for themselves when they visit their doctors. And this is all too critical, especially with the emphasis on prescription medication and surgery. Many doctors don’t even bring up regenerative medicine as a treatment option. The more people know about regenerative medicine and stem cell therapy, the more it enters into the conversation at large. People need to know the option is out there so they can make more informed decisions about their health, wellness, and life in general. We all have the right to feel better, in whatever form that may take.

WHAT’S IN A HOBBY?

A hobby? Who’s got time for that? Well, you do — at least according to psychologist and professor Jaime Kurtz. “We habitually waste time, creating the illusion of busyness. Facebook, email, Netflix — pick your poison,” she writes in Psychology Today. Back in 1957, Cyril Northcote Parkinson wrote a book called “Parkinson’s Law.” It was all about time management and workflow, and it centered around one idea: The more time you have to do

something, the longer it will take . If you have something you do two nights a week, odds are your chores will be done those nights so you can get to the hobby. The rest of the week? Not so much. Besides the obvious — turning off the screens — there are other tricks to managing your time for hobbies. One great way? Just schedule hobby time into your planner or calendar. Set a reminder on your phone, and when the time comes, just go do it, no excuses. Another trick, if you know you won’t get to it later, is to do your chores early in the morning. That way, when you come home from work, they’re all done, and you have time to work on your hobbies. Oh, and bonus — you come home to a clean house! In fact, hobbies have a lot of benefits. They “can be a healthy escape,” according to Dr. Beth Howlett, “and can be very beneficial to mental health.” And

your career success, according to the Washington Post. Plus, unusual hobbies, like beekeeping or playing a funky instrument, make for great conversation starters. There are also plenty of affordable hobbies that “trick” you into staying active, like geocaching or Ultimate Frisbee. Consider something outside of your comfort zone — with a welcoming community that’s happy to show newcomers the ropes. Never be afraid to stop people who are doing something that looks fun and ask them what’s going on. That’s how you learn! Dr. Kurtz sums it up best: “Maybe there’s something you’ve always wanted to do,” or “maybe something you used to love but stopped doing.” Her advice? Take that thing and run with it. “Just don’t follow that phrase with, ‘Ah, well. Maybe someday — when the kids leave the house or when I retire.’” Because we all know what that means!

some hobbies — like reading and exercise — can even boost

Surviving Diabetes M arlon ’ s R emarkable R ecovery Marlon Bradley has lived with diabetes for 16 years. In that time, he has experienced numerous complications related to the disease. But Marlon is a survivor: “I have survived a stroke, two transient ischemic attacks, and transient global amnesia where I knew my wife was my wife, but I didn’t know her name. I didn’t know my children were my children.” It didn’t end there for Marlon. “I survived a heart attack. I survived congestive heart failure. I survived cancer.” Despite all this, Marlon is still here, and he went in search of treatment. His traditional diabetic treatments and medications simply weren’t enough. “I was excited about the opportunity to come and see Dr. Vincent DePasquale.” Marlon credits much of his success to the controlled and restricted diet plan he went on for six weeks, in conjunction with the stem cell therapy. “The restrictions were well worth it.” he says.

“It was all worth it for

me because I know that not only am I going to improve my health and avoid further complications, but I know I’m on the mend.”

Today, Marlon says his energy level is up and his condition has greatly improved. In fact, shortly after his therapy, his endocrinologist, impressed by his blood sugar levels, was able to take him off insulin. “We’re eliminating more medications,” Marlon says. “I’m good to go!”

How Stem Cell Therapy Treats Hip Pain and Injury

Did you know stem cell therapy can be used to treat hip pain? Regenerative treatments like stem cell therapy and innovative platelet-rich plasma treat different kinds of musculoskeletal problems, as well as the underlying conditions that cause pain. HOW IT WORKS When it comes to stem cell therapy, we use your own stem cells derived from your body’s fat stores. Through this procedure, these highly-concentrated stem cells help repair, rebuild, and strengthen the damaged tissue. In this same-day procedure, stem cells are delivered directly to the injured area, which helps improve your body’s natural ability to heal itself. WHO IT’S FOR Stem cell hip therapy is a non-surgical alternative for patients who are considering elective surgery as the best treatment option to help alleviate hip pain and hip arthritis. The therapy is also an ideal alternative for those who are facing hip replacement surgery or have already had surgery, but still experience pain. It’s also an option for those who have chronic hip pain. HOW YOU BENEFIT Patients who undergo this type of therapy typically return to their normal daily activities after the procedure. They avoid the

painful and lengthy recovery periods that are usually required to restore mobility, strength, and range of motion after an invasive hip surgery. Additionally, patients are far less susceptible to risks that come with surgery, such as blood clots and infection.

If you suffer from any of the following hip conditions, stem cell therapy may be an option for you:

• Avascular necrosis • Complications from hip joint injury • Hip arthritis • Greater trochanteric bursitis • Hamstring strain • Iliolumbar ligaments • Ischial tuberosity bursitis • Osteoarthritis of the hip • Osteonecrosis of the femoral head • Labral tears • Sacroiliac joint dysfunction • Tendonitis • Piriformis syndrome

• Post-traumatic hip arthritis • Psoas tendinitis (snapping hip syndrome) • Quadriceps strain or partial rear • Symphysis pubis pain • Stem cell therapy for hip conditions • Stem cell treatment of hip pain

W here the W ild T hings A re THE UNSPOILED NATURAL MAJESTY OF YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK

This summer, skip the expensive hustle and bustle of an

whopping 130 vertical feet. Or if it’s majesty and exploration you’re itching for, hike one of the many trails along the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone River. The views, with clay cliff faces and tree-covered mountains in every direction, are unlike any other. Also, be sure to investigate the Grand Prismatic Spring, which, besides its otherworldly rainbow waters, is known for being the largest hot spring in the U.S. For many, though, the biggest draw of the park is the wildlife. Yellowstone is home to the largest bison population on public land. It houses more mammals than anywhere else in the lower 48 states, 150 species of birds, and huge populations of native fish, to name a few. Just driving around the park, you’re apt to see moose, deer, elk, mountain goats, and, if you’re lucky, grizzly bears, mountain lions, or wolves. Go boating, catch a fish, scale a mountain, ride a horse — the things to do vary as much as the breathtaking landscape. If you’re looking for an affordable, relaxed, and wide-open family vacation this summer, Yellowstone is a no-brainer.

overcrowded theme park. After a vacation like that, you’ll feel like you need another.

As far as getaway destinations go, Yellowstone National Park, sprawling across Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming,

is a little more expansive . More than 3 million visitors flock to its astonishing peaks, multicolored pools, and dramatic geothermal geysers each year, but as you travel across Yellowstone’s 2.2 million acres, it’s unlikely you’ll see much of them. And the sheer variety of unparalleled activities to explore means fun for the whole family.

Make sure to check out Old Faithful, the most famous geothermal geyser in the world, with eruptions averaging a
