In western medicine, the prevailing belief is that many illnesses and conditions cannot be healed, let along cured. Once contracted, they become life-long afflictions, that at best can be slowed down, but never quite stopped or reversed. Autoimmune diseases such as Diabetes, Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis, MS, Crohn’s, Celiac, Alzheimer’s and so many others all fit into this category of diseases that will be with us until we die. The best we can hope for is to “manage” those diseases, to slow their progression, mask their symptoms and try to keep them from destroying the quality of our life while they inevitably and prematurely kill us.

Furthermore, as we age, and our glands lose their vitality, our hormones fade, become imbalanced, and wreak havoc on our ability to function, feel good, and thrive. This too is considered “normal aging”, and therefore, from the conventional point of view, our best hope is to manage our decline and “age gracefully”… or more honestly stated, degenerate slowly.

The Integrative, Regenerative Medicine Approach

The new science of Regenerative Medicine with Placental/Umbilical Tissues/Biological Allografts (FDA: HCT/P – Stem Cells) therapies at its core, stands in stark contradistinction to this rather bleak and depressing conventional scenario. Central to its philosophy of clinical medicine, as well as to its scientific insight into human physiology is the notion that the regenerative capacity of every tissue and organ is a wellspring of potential that can be tapped, stimulated, harnessed and directed to revitalize organs and return them to youthful and healthy functionality. This vital regenerative life force is found in its purest and most potent form in placental tissues (HCT/P), and thus an array of scientifically developed methods has evolved to support, nourish and stimulate your body’s native stem cells, such as ozone therapy, mitochondrial medicine, adaptogens, telomerase amplifiers to name just a few.

Beyond the science of potentiating your own native stem cells, the most potent of all sources of regeneration are Placental/Umbilical Tissues/Biological Allografts (FDA: HCT/P – Stem Cells) harvested from embryonic tissues such as umbilical cords. (Note: Fetuses are NOT harmed in any way by the harvest of embryonic tissues). These nascent cells have the potential of not only arresting the progression of devastating terminal diseases, but actually healing them by regenerating deteriorated tissues and returning failing organs to functional health and the patient to vibrant life.

Living Longer and Stronger

Combined with a growing armamentarium of advanced therapies that augment the regenerative forces within every cell, organ systems from head-to-toe and skin-to-bone can reclaim the energy and vitality levels of youth. Degenerating joints, failing organs, exhausted glands, frazzled nerves, declining memory and mental acuity, can be brought back into a state of health and vitality. “Normal” aging conventionally defined as an inevitable progressive degeneration, resulting in increasing discomfort and dysfunction can be largely avoided. It is now possible to live longer and stronger than ever, well into the nineties and beyond the century mark.  

Beyond Peak Performance


To AMARM “Thanks for treatment” – Jim

By engaging the science of Integrative and Regenerative Medicine, living long and strong beyond one hundred years is now within reach. Accordingly, imagine what can be achieved for those at the prime of their physical capabilities, who are determined to go beyond the conventional limits of peak performance.

For professional athletes, for whom entire careers depend on a razor thin edge of advantage above the next guy, we can now inject into this hyper-competitive picture the promise of “beyond peak performance”. Expanded exercise capacity, profoundly increased endurance, strength, speed and stamina, an astounding resilience to nagging injury, and an accelerated return to game-readiness after injury, are not only a game-changer, they are a career-multiplier.

For athletes, agents and team owners alike, achieving all this naturally, without coming within a mile of drugs is an industry-changer.

A Physiological Transformation of Your Skin

At AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare, we’re passionately dedicated to a natural, physiological transformation of your skin. We believe that a holistic approach utilizing your own natural physiology to “regenerate” your skin so that it’s young, healthy and strong on the inside is the best way to give you fabulous looking skin on the outside. Accordingly, our protocols, technologies and treatments are integrated from all viable sources and very different from most other skincare clinics.

About Our Treatments for Your Skin

Laser Medicine employs an extensive array of state-of-the-art lasers to physiologically transform the various tissue that comprise your skin and treat a full spectrum of cosmetic and medical conditions.


European Physiological Regulating Medicine (PRM) uses highly refined, natural biochemical formulas to precisely regulate the body’s physiological systems, producing physiological balance (homeostasis), optimal health and natural, robust beauty. These highly specialized formulas combine time tested homeopathic principles with the most advanced scientific breakthroughs in biochemistry and cellular biology. To better understand the critical role of dynamic homeostasis in human physiology, please watch this video.

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapies saturate every organ, tissue and cell of your body with energizing and healing oxygen, stimulating collagen production and immune function. Every organ undergoing oxygen saturation goes through a transformational cascade – from detoxification, to healing – followed by regeneration.

High Potency IV Therapies

High Potency Vitamin Therapies by Injection and Intravenous Infusions supply the body with essential vitamins, minerals and micro-nutrients, critical components of healthy cellular functions that promote the optimal health of all organs and tissues, and do wonders for the health and radiant beauty of your skin.

Mitochondrial Amplification

Every cell in your body precisely orchestrates 20,000 biochemical reactions every second of your life. (Hard to wrap your brain around that isn’t it!) for which a huge amount of energy is needed. Combine that number with the fact that you have around one hundred trillion cells (100,000,000,000,000) in your body every one of which is orchestrating a different set of 20,000 different biochemical reactions, to fully grasp the enormous energy your body must create and consume every second of your life in order to function.

The source of all that energy are the mitochondria in your cells. They accomplish this stupendous task by utilizing the energy inherent in the electrons of the oxygen you are breathing to make ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate) which is the energy rich molecule that your cells use to actuate all those biochemical reactions.

Bottom line: If your mitochondria are not functioning properly, you can’t function properly. From robust vitality to minor low energy to serious debilitating and terminal diseases, the state of your mitochondria is central to your health and wellbeing.

Ozone Therapies

Without question, ozone therapy is one of the most effective and safe modalities of medicine in history. It has a number of powerful effects on human physiology, not the least of which is its remarkable effect on mitochondria. It stimulates both mitochondrial function and causes an increase in mitochondrial numbers within each cell. (Mitochondrial biogenesis)

  • It boosts the immune system
  • It kills pathogenic bacteria and viruses
  • Stimulates organ function
  • Stimulates healing and regeneration of damaged painful joints
  • Stimulates healing of painful damaged ligaments and tendons
  • Heals painful trigger points
  • Stimulates the healing and regeneration of over active bladder and chronic cystitis
  • Stimulates the healing and alleviates the symptoms of benign prostatic hypertrophy. (BPH)
  • Cures chronic sinus infections
  • Effective against chronic bacterial infections – even Lyme and Candida etc.
  • Effective against chronic viral infections – even Herpes, Hepatitis, etc.
  • Effective against chronic fungal infections.

At AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare, we are pioneers and perfectionists. We adopt and perfect the best that is available from other sources and develop new “integrative” protocols and treatments to achieve optimal results that far exceed industry standards.

What is most unique about AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare are the advanced, holistic, Integrative, multiple modality protocols we’ve developed through years of ongoing clinical research that intensely investigates the interactions between human organs – such as the skin – natural physiology and the energies emitted by many types of lasers.

Additional dimensions of AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare’s unique expertise in multiple-modality protocols are all the treatment modalities listed above such as our Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy, High Potency Vitamin injections, Ozone therapies and our integral practice of Physiological Regulating Medicine (PRM) and Placental/Umbilical Tissues/Biological Allografts (FDA: HCT/P – Stem Cells).

A case in point is our renowned, proprietary SpectraLift Non-Surgical Facelift™, the world’s most comprehensive non-surgical facelift. In 1999 when we founded AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare, this procedure was born the “Triple Laser Facial (CP3).” Over the following decade, it evolved through extensive research, development and investment, from CP3, to CP4, 5, 6, 7, and finally into the completely customized, 11-modality procedure now known as the SpectraLift™.

A Physiological Approach to Laser Medicine

Perhaps the most important innovation to emerge from this intense research is AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare’s holistic, physiological approach to laser and aesthetic medicine. Our focus is the physiology of the patient’s skin as well as other organs systems affecting the skin, enabling us to treat the root cause of a condition in addition to its symptoms.

Accordingly, each protocol is designed to interact with your skin’s natural, physiological healing mechanisms of repair and regeneration, stimulating them to naturally bring your skin back to its youthful and radiant vitality. The SpectraLift™ will take years off your face on the outside by making your skin healthier and younger on the inside.

Thus, our protocols have achieved a unique partnership between the most advanced laser technologies in the world, advanced European PRM and the skin’s natural physiology, allowing us to customize treatments precisely to each patient. The beautiful result is young and healthy skin for decades to come.

In the field of laser medicine, an expert must utilize many different types of lasers to achieve mastery of the craft. However, the magic does not lie in the lasers themselves, but in how the lasers are used and who is using them. Beyond mastery of course there is artistry, which is held as the pinnacle of achievement in any field of medicine. Very few ever reach this level of expertise.
