An in-depth look at how stem cell therapy may be able to reverse certain age-related conditions.

Aging is a complex, natural process; the effect of environmental factors, genetics and routine wear and tear on the bodies eventually takes a toll in a multitude of different ways. It is this result of living  life that can simply bring unavoidable health problems.Over time, the cells of the body age as we do; resulting in their inability to replicate; they become damaged and die. The loss of efficient cell replication is what causes our bodies to age. Some of the most common signs of aging are: impaired vision & hearing, lack of strength in muscles & bone density; decreased immunity and cognition, and less efficient metabolism.  Aging cells can contribute to disease. Thus if cell aging can be prevented, slowed down, or even reversed, many diseases could be better managed. Stem cells may have the ability to slow this process down & combat certain age related conditions.  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.

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 Stem 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

Can Stem Cells Stop Aging?

With our current knowledge of stem cells, it is technically feasible to delay aging and improve both health and lifespan. Stem cells, can play a crucial role in delaying the aging process. Stem cells in combination with anti-aging genes have the ability to create a complex shield, which can prevent the effects of aging.

Increased wear and tear of the bodies natural stem cells, increases cellular damage and accelerate the natural process of aging. Stem cells combined with anti-aging genes can potentially absorb the process of cellular aging. The introduction of "youthful" stem cells into the human body can rejuvenate existing cells and allow the body to age more gracefully & even reverse some effects of the aging process.

What is Stem Cell Rejuvenation?

Stem cell rejuvenation is a type of therapy used to combat the effects of the natural aging process.  A large amount of youthful stem cells are injected into the patient via IV.  These are intended to replace ones existing "old" cells thus allow to body to work my efficiently by healing itself and reducing inflammation.  There are many different methods and amounts of stem cells that can be administered.  At DVC Stem we use cord derived stem cells; the patient receives over 300 million stem cells that have the ability to rejuvenate the body.

This type of treatment can be used both as preventative medicine and regenerative medicine.

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.
