Oh how we love the way the sun feels, but oh how we hate what it does… sun damaged skin! 

Yes, the sun does make flowers bloom and trees grow, but flora was designed for that purpose.

Human skin on the other hand, was not designed to withstand the effects of prolonged exposure to the sun, especially lighter skin.

The Sun’s Damaging Effects on Skin

But if feels sooo good, how much damage can the sun really do?


Lecture : What are stem cells? – Part 2 of 4 – Where do they come from?

(The following is a transcription of the above video)

There are three sources of stem cells.

  1. There are the embryonic stem cells, those stem cells that are part of a developing fetus. 
  2. There are the placental stem cells, which are the placenta and the umbilical cord.
  3. All of our adult organs have stem cells in them as well.


Lecture : What are stem cells? – Part 1 of 4 – Why are stem cells important?

(The following is a transcription of the above video)

Hello everyone, I am Asher Milgrom, PhD, the CEO and Chief Science Officer of AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare. My specialty is biomedical sciences and we specialize here in Integrative Medicine and Regenerative Medicine.

We are privileged to be doing all sorts of very interesting research with stem cells and also treating patients with stem cells and that’s the subject of this lecture.

 

First things first…. Embryonic stem cells that are used for medical treatments are NOT part of a developing fetus or baby.

Rather these cells are derived from other embryonic tissues such as placenta, umbilical cord, and amniotic fluid. These tissues are routinely collected during the birth of a baby and destroyed (incinerated) immediately following the birth.

From a clinical perspective, fetal stem cells are NOT suitable for any therapeutic use, because they are very unstable and not safe for transplanting into patients.

 

Every cell in our body comes from the original stem cells that comprised the embryo we once were.

Everything starts with a sperm and egg, which fertilize each other by merging into a single cell thereby becoming the first stem cell from which our entire body will be created. At that point the merged cell starts dividing into 2 cells, then 4, 8, 16, 32 cells etc.

In these early stages, every one of these cells can become any cell in the human body.

 

Medical science has known for decades that stem cells can be found in almost all human tissues and organs and that they are critical participants in the process of how human bodies repair themselves and stay healthy. However, a new chapter was opened when scientists discovered that stem cells can be found in human embryos.

This breakthrough became even more important when laboratory experiments proved that stem cells can be grown in a laboratory, and can potentially be used to develop treatments such as stem cell therapy for different medical conditions.


Excerpt from Interview with Dr. Neil Riordan on Stem Cell Therapy for Heart Disease
(below is a transcription of the above excerpt)

DOES STEM CELL THERAPY WORK FOR HEART DISEASE?

Joe Rogan: Wow! What about heart disease? You were talking about people that have heart issues.

Dr. Neil Riordan: Yes, we have a number of patients with heart failure that have responded quite well to the stem cell therapy treatments.

Joe Rogan: Heart failure? Heart attack?


Joe Namath discusses HBOT for the treatment of TBI

 

Reporter
My next guest knows a thing or two about that he’s the Hall of Fame quarterback Joe Namath. He recently underwent a series of Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) Treatments that doctors claim reversed damage he suffered from years of brutal hits in the NFL.

How would you describe these Hyperbaric Treatments and what did they do to you?

Joe Namath
JoeNamathwithDocKnowing that I had had concussions I reached out for some help because I wanted to find out if in fact I had traumatic brain injuries (TBI) we could do something about.

  

The holiday season brings cooler temperatures, more travel and less time to pamper yourself. Sadly, winter is one of the main reasons for dry skin and often leaves our skin with a lot more than rosy cheeks. Dry skin is one of the most common complaints during the winter, even in Southern California. With a little help from Elle Magazine, we have compiled the Top Home Remedies for Dry Skin.

#1 HOME REMEDY FOR DRY SKIN – ADD ALOE AND VITAMIN E

Elle magazine editors say the key to a winter dry-skin-free, glowing face is glycerin, aloe and vitamin E.

 

Changing these bad habits, recognized as the top 9 causes of aging, into healthy habits can do more than just help you to look better, they can actually help you be healthier too. We all know that smoking and sun exposure can add wrinkles – and years – to your skin, but you may not know that these 9 causes of aging can also pack a preverbal punch to your looks and add years to you and your body.
