      I am in the USA....BUT the FDA is making,

      stem cell therapy difficult here. Google stem cell therapy for arthritis in the UK and see what pops up. Then reseach what you find. That is what I did. DON'T GIVE UP!

    There are several types of stem cell treatments. I have often wanted to give it a try since reciently it has been approved in the US.

    WHILE Europe OS the HUB of stem cell treatment.

    the types of stem cell treatment are. 

    Embryonic stem cells which is used for arthritis 

    Tissue-specific stem cells

    Mesenchymal stem cells

    Induced pluripotent stem cells

    see online for for clinical research data. Very interesting read. I am convinced it's worth trying. 

    Peace & Heeling

      My stem cells were taken from the back of my hips and then made into a product over a few hours...this is where the FDA has made it difficult in the USA because they won't let the stem cells be out if the body longer than 24 hours. I have severe arthritis in my hips but I had 2 billion stem cells to split between them.....I had not heard of embryonic stem cells for arthritis. ....but I don't think they are doing that in the USA yet.....I'm still recovering but so happy I did it! I'm Feeling better and I hope to keep improving!
