Cell Therapy

What is Cell Therapy?

LifeWorks has recently introduced cell therapy, a protocol which can help in rejuvenating and restoring function to aging tissue and poorly functioning organs. This type of cell therapy uses specific organ or tissue cells (heart, liver, adrenal, etc) from embryonic animals since most animal cells are very similar to human cells.

The theory behind this type of cell therapy is that healthy animal cells taken from one of the animal’s organs e.g. the liver, will find their way to the weak or damaged liver of the patient and this will stimulate the body’s own healing process.

This theory of cell therapy is nothing new. As long ago as the 16thcentury, the physician Paracelsus believed that the best way to treat illness was to use living tissue to rebuild and revitalize ailing or aging tissue, saying “heart heals heart, liver heals liver, like cures like”.

Cell therapy as we know it today was developed by Swiss physician Paul Niehans, MD, in 1931. During a medical emergency, Dr. Niehans injected a solution containing ground-up parathyroid cells from a calf into a patient who had damaged parathyroid glands. The patient recovered, and Dr. Niehans attributed the improvement to the injection. He went on to apply the idea of animal-to-human cellular transfer to other diseases.

Cell therapy is widely accepted in Europe and many doctors who administer it believe that it acts like an organ transplant, making old cells younger. Some organs are difficult to transplant, such as the liver and heart, while others are impossible to transplant, such as the brain. Also, with organ transplants there is always a risk the body will reject the new organ but this is very unlikely to happen with new cells. For this reason, cell therapy can be effectively used to treat many conditions and to aid in general rejuvenation of cells.

What is Involved with Cell Therapy?

At LifeWorks, patients are evaluated based on the symptoms they present with, combined with functional and lab testing. If the results indicate a weakness in, or disease of, an organ then cell therapy may be included in their protocol. Other times, patients generally just want to feel good again, especially those aged 50 plus. They may want to increase their stamina and energy and to decrease their aches, pains and fatigue.

The great thing about cell therapy is that it helps almost every condition or situation to improve. The LifeWorks practitioner will select the cell therapy formula which will benefit the patient the most and the patient will take this in liquid form, sublingually (orally) over a number of weeks.

What are the Benefits of Cell Therapy?

Cell therapy has two major benefits. The first is in anti-aging, since cell therapy can make people look and feel considerably younger, especially those in their senior years. The second benefit of cell therapy is “targeted therapy” and improves the health and function of specific organs. Many conditions can benefit from cell therapy including:

  • Growth and development abnormalities
  • Anemia
  • Recurring miscarriage
  • Infertility
  • Diabetes
  • High or low blood pressure
  • Heart and circulatory weakness
  • Menopausal symptoms
  • Prostate enlargement
  • Edema
  • Arteriosclerosis
  • Memory loss
  • Insomnia
  • Depression
  • Anorexia
  • Tinnitus
  • Asthma
  • Arthritis

Dr. David Minkoff, M.D.
Founder and Medical Director
In 1995, Dr. Minkoff's wife became ill and her physicians couldn't find what was wrong. Not accepting their "no hope" conclusion, Dr. Minkoff went on a search to help her which led him out of emergency medicine into complementary and alternative medicine to find the answers. In the process he gained expertise in Biological medicine, heavy metal detoxification, anti-aging medicine, hormone replacement therapy, functional medicine, energy medicine, neural and prolotherapy, homeopathy and optimum nutrition. He studied under the masters in each of these disciplines until he became an expert in his own right. The answers he found were soon in demand when others learned of his wife’s return to good health. In response to this, he and his wife, Sue Minkoff RN established Lifeworks Wellness Center in 1997 and it quickly became one of the most comprehensive complementary and alternative medicine clinics in the U.S.
