My friend, Nancy, was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2001. MS is a gradually disabling disease of the central nervous system that disrupts the flow of information within the brain and between the brain and body. As a result, Nancy has been in a wheelchair for ten years since 2007.
But here’s what she just wrote, “After just a few treatments, I was able to move my right leg and hand in ways I had not been able to do in many, many years! And the improvements have continued to manifest.”
Nancy had been receiving stem cell treatments.
Nancy discovered that there are different types of stem cells. (Note: none of these are from abortions. In fact, they come from infertility clinics that put the parents’ sperm and egg into a laboratory dish to grow before re-implanting them in the woman.)
Embryonic stem cells are taken on the fourth day after fertilization and are capable of becoming all 221 types of cells in the human body. In addition, they are the only kind of stem cell that can pass through the blood-brain barrier to heal neurological issues in the brain.
Umbilical cord stem cells are capable of becoming all types of blood cells, but not other types of cells.
Adult stem cells are much fewer, which is a handicap because millions of stem cells are required for a single treatment. Adult stem cells can only become new cells of whatever type of organ they are gotten from.
Nancy had already gotten two different stem cell treatments in the US, but neither produced any benefits, but she wouldn’t give up. After researching several other options, she chose to try one more time with Dr. Hino at the Hino Medical Clinic in Ensenada, Mexico.
Why Mexico? Well, in 1996 the US Congress passed a law (Dickey-Wicker Amendment) that prohibited federally funded researchers from creating or harming embryos. This virtually halted all federally-funded research in the US on stem cells. In August of 2001, President George W. Bush’s sought to allow some research by banning federal funding for research on only newly created human embryonic stem cells. (There were already existing a few dozen sources of embryonic stem cells previous to this order that were permitted to be studied, but they were produced in a technically inferior manner and therefore not very viable for research.) Bush’s ban remained in place until 2009 when it was lifted. Aspects of the Dickey-Wicker Amendment are however still in force. The bottom line? US research into stem cells is about 10 years behind the rest of the world.
Nancy’s treatment consisted of seven intravenous doses of 20 million embryonic stem cells each, administered every other day. These treatments were alternated with five umbilical stem cell treatments of 10 million cells.
Nancy concluded, “The strength of signal from my brain to my right leg has continued to grow and become more dependable. Last night, I was able to take several small steps with my right leg as I was assisted over the short distance from the commode to my bed — consistently, each and every time. This was after not being able to use my right leg for years!
“Dr. Hino tells me that most patients see initial improvement only after three to four weeks — and then experience the greatest change in the first six months. So seeing my body respond during the treatments is a very, very positive indicator to me of excellent improvements to come!”
Previously mainstream medicine has not been able to do anything for MS. Now, embryonic stem cells are giving hope to people with a wide variety of degenerative diseases.

By the way, Nancy gave me permission to tell her story in the hope that it will help many, many others. I join her in that hope.
