Stem Cell FAQ

This page is for answering some of the most common questions.

What are stem cells?
Stem cells are the basic building blocks of human tissue. They have the ability to repair, rebuild and rejuvenate tissues throughout the body. When disease or injury strikes, stem cells respond to specific signals and set out to facilitate the healing process by differentiating into specialized cells. These specialized cells then release healing growth factors in response to the distress cell signal in an injured or pathologic area of the body required for the body’s repair.

Where do the stem cells come from?
The human cell and tissue products are derived from the umbilical cords of healthy, full-term deliveries. Our products do not contain any embryonic or fetal tissue.W

How are the tissue donors screened?
Comprehensive medical and social histories of the donors are obtained and reviewed. All tissues are procured, processed and tested in accordance with FDA requirements to minimize potential risks of disease transmission to recipients. Infectious disease testing is performed at a registered laboratory in accordance with the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments of 1988 (CLIA) and 42 CFR part 493.

How long does a procedure take?
Depending upon the area being treated, the procedure can be completed in a single office visit. Your physician will be able to provide details specific to your treatment plan.

Does my age matter?
Your age may play a factor in the outcome of your treatment. We will be able to provide you with more specific information in regard to your treatment outcomes.

Does the procedure hurt?
The injection does not require any invasive procedures, resulting in less pain and a shorter procedure time.

When will I begin to feel the benefits?
Depending upon the severity of the injury and your personal health, recovery time can vary. Your physician will be able to provide you with more information regarding your recovery timeline.

Is it safe?
Our products are rigorously tested to FDA guidelines in our CLIA registered lab. Thousands of patients have used these tissue allografts with no adverse effects.

Can I use if I have cancer?
Human cell and tissue products are not recommended for use in patients who are currently undergoing treatments for cancer. We recommend that patients be cancer free. Depending on the site and severity of cancer we can may more recommendations.

Will my DNA be altered if I receive a human cell and tissue allograft?
In certain cases of bone marrow transplants, a patient’s DNA can be altered or shared with the donor. For the intent and purpose of our product, your DNA will most likely not be altered. Most procedures utilizing human cell and tissue products in regenerative medicine will typically be removed by normal body processes within 3-14 days, and in some cases up to 120 days (4-months).

Thanks for visiting. More about me...I wanted to be a doctor as long as I can remember. My passion is and always will be to help people solve their health problems and inspire them to be better versions of themselves. I completed my undergrad at Michigan State University where I studied Physiology. It was there I shadowed in a local hospital, talked to scientists, counselors, medical doctors and chiropractors. After much consideration I attended Life University in Atlanta, GA. Prior to attending Life U I had never been to a chiropractor. All I knew is they help peoples' spines. Shortly after attending I received my first adjustments. Previously, it was ingrained in my head that pain was normal and to ignore it. As part of the process at Life U you are assigned a student intern that is learning to adjust people. Little did I know their learning experience on my spine would be my miracle. At 26, I've had constant shoulder pain since my days on the high school football team. I was 100 percent convinced I'd have to live with it forever. After being under care for a few weeks things started to change and shortly thereafter my pain was gone. Besides the knowledge in joint pain and spinal adjustments I became well-versed in other aspects of holistic care like diet, exercise, and other chronic disease processes that can be reversed via lifestyle. I love to teach and like to be creative so starting a blog, youtube channel and instagram profile check all my boxes for what makes me happy as a person. Other accolades: I became the go to chiropractor in the Atlanta area for athletes and families. The Atlanta Blaze MLL (professional lacrosse) team brought me on to be their team chiropractor. 2015 Nationally Qualifed NPC Men's Physique Competitor I also did some modeling and even acted in a few commercials for fun.
