Today is a lucky day for us as we get an up close and personal look at Dr. Roberto Fernandez Vina, the chairman of the Repair Stem Cell Institute’s Science Advisory Board, and one of the world’s most renowned stem cell research pioneers using the patient’s own Adult Stem Cells.  We also get a in depth look at his stem cell therapy for Multiple Sclerosis.

Dr. Fernandez Vina recently presented the results of some of his stem cell research for Diabetes Type 2 and COPD at the International Society for Stem Cell Research (ISSCR) annual meeting a couple of weeks ago in Barcelona.

However, Dr. Fernandez Vina usually doesn’t get the credit he deserves as his stem cell treatment takes place far away in Argentina (and now El Salvador).

Stem Cell Treatment by Dr. Fernandez Vina – Up close

Dan Alvarez, also known as “the Day Trading Tutor,”  recently took his mother to Argentina for Dr. Fernandez Vina’s stem cell treatment to help his mother’s Multiple Sclerosis and documented the whole story in his Day Trading Blog.

Here is what Dan had to say about the stem cell treatment for his mother using Adult Stem Cells:

we were picked up late in the afternoon and taken to the hospital for preparation for the treatment on the following day. I was very impressed by the quality of the hospital and its cleanliness. The nurses and staff were great; always very helpful and supportive. The room was equipped with cable TV with plenty of channels (as well as funky Argentinian shows).

On that same day, we met Doctor Fernandez Vina and his assistant, Doctor Janina.

All I can say is that they were wonderful, with a genuine concern for their patients and their well-being. My mom really felt at ease with them and that helped a lot with her nervousness (she’s a bit of a sissy when it comes to doctors…He…He!).

During the next morning, bone marrow was extracted from my mom’s hip bone under general anesthesia. From this marrow the stem cells were later extracted and a few hours after that, Doctor Fernandez Vina implanted the cells through one of my mom’s leg arteries. The implant procedure took less than an hour.

My mom had to spend the day after the procedure in the hospital under medical supervision and one day on bed rest at the hotel.

The Results of the Stem Cell Therapy for Multiple Sclerosis

And what happened after the stem cell therapy for Multiple Sclerosis? Did it help improve her quality of life?

Dan describes the effects of the Adult Stem Cells:

After the Stem Cell Treatment

It’s been around two weeks since my mom had her treatment; so it’s too soon for the stem cells to complete their repair function, but we’re already seeing some dramatic changes. The MS had affected mainly my mom’s balance and coordination. She could not really walk without a cane anymore and constantly swerved to the sides, bumping against objects in her path if unassisted. To my amazement (and that of all our other family members), she was rather quick on her feet yesterday (the day prior to this post) when we paid her a visit. She wasn’t swerving to the sides and didn’t use a cane at all while we were with her.

It’s a truly amazing change given her previous condition. I can’t wait to see what other changes lie in store for her and thank God for all the blessings bestowed upon her so far.

For those of you who have family members suffering from multiple sclerosis, diabetes, or any other condition for which the traditional medical community doesn’t have a cure and probably no financial interest to find one, I strongly suggest that you contact the Fundacion Fernandez Vina in Argentina. I’ll be more than happy to discuss my experiences and suggestions with you in more detail, so feel free to contact me as well.
