Advancements in anti-aging treatments, including stem cells and adjunctive treatments can potentially slow down or reverse the aging process.

Stem cells for intelligent aging

Aging is a complex process in which cells become progressively damaged over time and finally die. All cells in the body have an effective lifespan. Over time, these cells slowly cease functioning before deactivating. As we age, the body's ability to quickly replace these cells diminishes. Eventually, old age prevents the body from rejuvenating itself at the end of life.

Advancements in anti-aging treatments including stem cells and adjunctive treatments can potentially slow down or reverse the aging process. As a form of anti-aging therapy, stem cells can actively find areas in the body that require replenishment and transform into the required specialized type of cell. Those cells possess a unique anti-aging effect utilizing regenerating and repairing organs damaged by stress and various toxins we are exposed to in our daily lives and by improving immune functions. It is an external way to help the body repair itself.

The signs of aging generally start at the age of 40, earlier for smokers and those who are exposed to the action of toxic substances due to their jobs or lifestyle. These signs of aging are; loss of memory, poor concentration, loss of energy, general fatigue, tiredness, wrinkles, age spots, general aches and pains, loss of hair, loss of skin texture, insomnia, reduced sex drive, mood swings, degenerative diseases, and decreased immunity.

How do stem cells slow aging?

Anti-aging treatments drastically improves the capacity of physical activities, hair quality, renal function, immune function, strength, and overall well-being. With stem cell therapies, you are replenishing the supply of stem cells to allow the body to repair and rejuvenate all the organs of your body. Stem cells possess unique factors that aid in anti-aging by helping our bodies regenerate cellular tissues, such as your skin, joints, bones, and organs, that have been damaged by stress, injury, and environmental factors that we are exposed to on a daily basis. Anti Aging Stem cell therapy is an effective way to return to a more vital level of health; to a point earlier in life, where our bodies were able to repair themselves more efficiently.

How many stem cells does a patient need?

During stem cell treatment a patient receives approximately 300 million stem cells. These stem cells are harvested from umbilical cord samples, all of which undergo an extensive amount of testing to assure sterility and viability. Once we have obtained an adequate sample, these stem cells are then grown on special media (food), which enhances them even further. We then package the stem cells and store them in a cryogenic form (colder than 100 degrees below zero). At the time of intravenous administration, the cells are thawed to body temperature in a sterile lab and administered over a number of hours by our trained physicians. The high quantity of 300 million cells not only covers daily losses that have been occurring progressively for years but replaces the cellular losses a thousand times over. The reserve of the stem cells practically lost over the last 15 -20 years, is then restored to the body. After such a large cell replenishment, the body's organs are rejuvenated and renewed. Old and damaged cells are effectively replaced by brand new ones. Patients who undergo anti aging cell therapy can usually expect: feeling of vitality and rejuvenation, improved capacity for physical activities, thickening and improved quality of hair, increased libido, decrease in pain, increased strength, enhanced immunity, overall improvement in the quality of life.

Matthew Murry - MS Patient


"Is the video I posted from this morning! My speech is so easy for me now, got easier throughout the day! I can talk like a NYer (fast) for the first time in years! Praise God!"

- Matthew Murry


Only 3 days after treatment, Matthew is now able to touch his nose with his eyes closed as well as touch his thumb and pinky together. Both of which he was previously unable to do before treatment.

We are excited to see his continued progress. His story will be updated here so keep an eye out!

"This is exciting stuff, god bless"

Matthew Murry - MS Patient


Matthew experiences sensation in the bottom of his feet after receiving a simple nerve test.

His left foot did not experience any sensation or move at all, but what happened to his right foot is extremely exciting!


Matthew is now able to lift his leg unassisted. He was previously unable to do so.

Matthew is experiencing the benefits of stem cell therapy first hand. You can view his progress video here.

Matthew is able to stand up with the assistance of stability bars.

David Lyons

Multiple Sclerosis

Although David Lyons was able to successfully fight Multiple Sclerosis through a strict regimen of diet and exercise, he wanted to ensure he was doing everything he could to stay fit. Multiple Sclerosis can be managed with treatment, but there is currently no cure for the disease. For that reason, David came to DVC Stem years ago to use the regenerative and anti-inflammatory attributes of stem cells to aid in his fight for fitness.

The positive results he experienced enabled David to stay strong in the gym, now into his 60s, and that is why he continues to support our clinic to this day.
