Has anyone been to Panama City in Panama for Stem Cell ?

I have filled out an application for treatment in Panama, but I'd like to find out of any of you have been there, and how it went for you.

From what I can gather, outcomes have been mixed. There is a Holly Huber who has posted a lot on her stem cell experiences in Central America. I believe she can be contacted on Facebook or Twitter.

I have been in direct contact w/ 7 people now who had stem cells in Panama at SCI.
All of them except 1 have had good results, but all have had to return for more than 1 treatment.
One person had umbilical cord cells injected into his spinal canal, and his walking got worse.
There is also news reports on the cop from Texas who had the therapy with good results in 2008, he has had one further treatment, but he can now ride his bike in 50 mile races.

I am thinking about going to Panama Stem Cell Institute. MSC seems to be a successful treatment for MS.
I think it is very sad that this option is not provided for us in US. All countries are on their way and we are behind.
The trials I see are limited and are autologous only. Because of "moral" issues !!! I'm sorry but F*7^. This could have been available 10 years ago.
Anywho...........
Has anyone heard resent stem cell work done in Panama? Dr. Neil Riordan seems to be very well informed but all I find goes back to 2 to 6 years ago.
I have tried almost anything and now I am SPMS.

It is too bad that the people that had indicated interest in this procedure (in numerous threads on this site) a number of years ago left the forum, including the OP of this thread. It would have been interesting to find out if they had the procedure done and what the results were.

In any case, I did some research on the clinic and found some interesting info about the clinic and the numerous 'expensive' supplements they offer.

Also found this which you may want to review:

https://www.msworld.org/forum/showthrea ... -in-Panama

In fairness, I did find links to favorable articles as well.

There is a fair amount of information available on the web.

Keep in mind that like ALL treatments, this one works for some but not all and certainly not a significant majority. This tells me all I need to know. Personally I would only consider the treatment as a protocol of last resort (at this time) until it is proven to be safe and successful for most.



@ Vivianne766, Just curious, exactly what protocols have you tried?

Just FYI - there was a woman who has posted extensively on the web about her positive experience with stem cell treatment in Panama. I believe her name is Holly Huber, and I think you can google it and get lots of info.

EVERY protocol, from the simplest to the most complex, from very inexpensive to very expensive, has people reporting successes while others following the same protocol report the opposite. Stem Cell Therapy is no different in this regard and IMHO should be done only as a last resort option since there are many much safer and much more affordable options available at this time.

Elliot - I totally agree - I was just putting her name out for anyone wanting to explore this option. I personally think the stem cell trials going on at the Tisch MS center do offer real hope.

I believe that someday stem cell treatment will be a viable treatment for many illness, just not at the moment. Some genius will figure them out at some point in time!

FWIW, this Panama City clinic seems to be sponsoring a very expensive supplement they claim is supposed to promote stem cell repair without surgery. Snake oil? Perhaps. Seems to basically be a probiotic.
