Recently, one of my customers sent me this article from Dr. Mercola’s website. It discusses the new use of stem cell and platelet therapy for healing joint injuries.
Noting that surgery is the least desirable option, the suggestion of rebuilding tissue with these therapies is certainly worth considering. I wonder, if regular insurance will pay for them though, since they look experimental, and we all know how insurance companies love paying for things they don’t understand or acknowledge—NOT!!
Dr. Mercola then goes on to mention several supplements, such as melatonin, Others include:
“Nutrients and combinations of nutrients that boost stem cell regeneration include vitamins C and D, glucosamine and chondroitin, curcumin, resveratrol, bitter melon, and the amino acid l-carnosine. Leiber recommends these to most of his patients. He also recommends taking a high-quality omega-3 supplement such as krill oil in higher amounts.”
The video is definitely worth checking out.
It also includes a video interview between himself and Dr. James Lieber.
