In Search of Optimal Health – Integrative and Regenerative Medicine
Imagine if someone told you that there is a cure for herpes, diabetes, Lyme disease, lupus, MS and many more diseases considered to be incurable life-sentence illnesses by conventional medicine.
Wouldn’t you be overjoyed?
What if you found out that there are treatments for cancer that are 1000% more effective than conventional treatments? What if you found out that many of these therapies have been available for some time but that the “powers-that-be” such as the FDA, “big-pharma” and insurance companies shut the door on these “alternative cures”?
Wouldn’t you be outraged?
Optimal Health and the Powers-that-be
Well, studies show there are KNOWN and proven cures to some of the most debilitating diseases of our time, but because of what seem to be nefarious and conspiratorial reasons having to do with power and money, those that control medicine seem determined on keeping us in the dark about these treatments and cures.
Why would they do that?
Because your ill health is a multi-trillion-dollar industry that feeds massive pharmaceutical companies, giant insurance companies, as well as the Feds and enormous sectors of the legal industry. Simply put, the disruption to these industries represented by a cure to an illness whose “management” generates billions of dollars is a threat.
Bottom line, there is a lot of money and power in “managing” your illness for the span of your lifetime, rather than simply curing it and restoring you to optimal health.
Is your mind boggling?
Because mine certainly did when I discovered all this from husband and wife team, Dr. Alice Pien MD and Dr. Asher Milgrom PhD.
Pioneers in Integrative and Regenerative Medicine
For me the issue was also personal. I’d gone in search of an alternative cure for my rosacea as I’ve suffer with continual outbreaks, not only on my skin, but occasionally also in my eyes. The only solution I could find with western medicine were antibiotics and steroidal creams, both of which cause side effects and are hard on my liver.
My search brought me to AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare where I met Drs. Milgrom and Pien, pioneers in Integrative and Regenerative medicine. Together, Drs. Milgrom and Pien own and operate AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare where they’ve developed advanced holistic medical protocols for a wide variety of laser procedures that produce extraordinary clinical results while requiring minimal patient downtime. In other words, they could stop my rosacea for good – with no unhealthy side effects in a short span of time.
The only down side?
My insurance wouldn’t cover it. I went ahead regardless and had the laser treatments done.
And did it heal my rosacea?
Absolutely – 100%
Holistic Rebirth of Your Skin
AMA Regenerative Medicine & Skincare offers all kinds of leading edge, noninvasive therapies that go beyond the repairing of your skin to a holistic rebirth of your skin. If you want healthy, young looking and vibrant skin, this is the place to go.
Achieving Optimal Health
But hold on, not only do Dr. Milgrom and Dr. Pien include high potency vitamin IV therapy, acupuncture, collagen induction therapy, and hyperbaric oxygen treatments as adjuncts to their hi-tech laser medicine, they further offer ozone therapy and stem cell therapy for a wide spectrum of systemic diseases as well.
These last two therapies for optimal health are what really intrigued me, and I wanted to know more, not just about these therapies but also about what is happening in our healthcare system?
Integrative and Regenerative Medicine for Optimal Health
Stem cell therapy seems to offer tremendous promise in treating a range of diseases, injuries and other health-related conditions. Could you tell us more about this?
Dr. Pien and Dr. Milgrom:
Eventually all the cells in our bodies lose their ability to function because of aging or because they were damaged in some way. Since stem cells are the regenerative engines of our bodies, we can either stimulate your own native stem cells or inject your body with stem cells that will help heal your body in ways your own stem cells are no longer able to.
We administer stem cells in the form of injections and IV infusions, and once the stem cells are in your body we stand back and watch the healing. It’s rather miraculous and is truly humbling for physicians to work with these “mysterious” cells (see the documentary, the “God Cells”).
The stem cells we use are harvested from the human umbilical cord Wharton’s Jelly and are known as Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC). Studies show that these stem cells help with joint repair, auto-immune disease, degenerative organs and neuromuscular diseases including Autism, Multiple Sclerosis and muscular dystrophy. Without a doubt, Stem Cell Therapy is the most promising and potent of all anti-aging, longevity and regenerative therapies.
And what can Ozone Therapy do for you?
Dr. Pien and Dr. Milgrom:
There are studies from around the world showing that Ozone Therapy is effective in the treatment of various diseases including cancer, AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis, arthritis, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic infections such as Lyme disease and viruses, as well as many autoimmune diseases.
Ozone kills bacteria, viruses and fungi, and comes with a long list of benefits such as anti-aging, boosting the immune system, and increasing energy production in your cells. Ozone therapy stimulates the mitochondria of every cell in our body, and given that mitochondria are the “engine of life” in each cell—ozone stimulates the regenerative capacity of every organ in the body.
Ozone therapy has been extensively studied for decades, is used worldwide for cancer, hepatitis, HIV, herpes, Lyme, autoimmune diseases and hundreds of serious illnesses, and though it is legal to use, it is not FDA approved in the US. You may wonder how that can be, when ozone is so effective and inexpensive, without any harmful adverse reactions or side effects so typical of pharmaceuticals and surgeries. Ahhh, and therein lies the rub, because the fact is that ozone works and if it was used more, many people could avoid the need for pharmaceuticals and/or surgeries.
Why is Western Medicine not climbing on board?
Dr. Pien and Dr. Milgrom:
Conventional western-medicine is failing us here in the USA. Not only do we pay the most exorbitant costs for healthcare anywhere in the world, but the quality of care we receive is now the lowest in the developed world. To make it worse, the painful truth that no one wants to look at, is that “Iatrogenic Death”, which is death caused by medical treatments, ranks as one of the top 3 leading causes of premature and unnecessary death in the United States. And yes, of course, everyone is aware that western medicine has also developed amazing and vital therapies, but we’re moving towards a future where achieving optimal health is the goal.
For stem cell research, the rules and regulations laid out by the FDA slows us down and makes it very expensive to do trials that also require many years to complete – and everyone knows it. It’s short sighted because now literally millions of people every year leave the US in search of preferred healthcare elsewhere in the world that is focused on optimal health and is both more effective and often less expensive than treatments in the US.
Above is Dr. Milgrom’s animated depiction of what the medical playing field looks like in the US. Notice how neither the doctor nor the patients are allowed to participate in the conversation dominated by the four huge gorillas.
It’s due to this ludicrous situation that Drs. Pien and Milgrom are looking to establish a medical facility in Belize called AIMS – Advanced Integrative Medicine and Surgery that will be truly integrative and completely free of the gorillas, and 110% focused on delivering the best possible clinical outcomes to its patients. They’ve already gained support from Belize’s Ministry of Health who said “…we are pleased to provide all necessary support to ensure the success of this project…” And the government in Belize has modified its healthcare regulations in support of the AIMS project.
So, how does AIMS plan to help patients achieve optimal health?
Dr. Pien and Dr. Milgrom:
With Advanced Integrative Medicine—a safer, non-toxic, minimally invasive, less expensive way to treat you with superior results that achieve optimal health.
Integrative Medicine incorporates treatments from all modalities, ancient treatments and modern science, western and eastern, including Regenerative medicine, and takes into account not only the physiological symptoms, but also the psychological, social and spiritual aspects of illness, health and wellness. Integrative Medicine utilizes, supports and amplifies the body’s own potential to heal itself.
In this fully integrative environment, even when surgery is necessary, the outcomes will be far and away superior to conventional standards. Through AIMS and its research facilities, Drs. Pien, Milgrom, and hundreds of their colleagues’ intend to develop and provide optimal health for humanity.
