There still seems to be a lot of confusion about stem cells out there. Let’s take a look at stem cell treatments for our newest treatable condition. Here we will analyze the difference between the capabilities of embryonic stem cells versus repair stem cells to treat hearing disorders.
Embryonic stem cells
1. SOURCE? - come from embryos
2. RAISON D’ETRE? - exist only to make a fetus...not to heal the body
3. TREATMENT POTENTIAL? - haven't produced any treatments
4. DOWN SIDE? - often grow tumors, rejection issues, requires immune suppressive drugs
5. AVAILABLE? - not available
6. HISTORY OF TREATING HEARING? - there are a few studies but currently no clinical trials for stem cell treatment of hearing disorders
7. HISTORY OF TREATING OTHER DISEASES? - there have been no successful clinical trials with stem cells
8. HOW LONG UNTIL I CAN GET TREATED WITH EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS? - once the trial begins, IF IT BEGINS, it will then take at least 7-10 years (clinical trial period) to complete the trial
Adult stem cells
1. SOURCE? - come from dozens of places in the body (blood, marrow, teeth, umbilical cord, mother’s milk)
2. RAISON D’ETRE? - exist only to repair the body
3. TREATMENT POTENTIAL? - have produced treatment s for over one hundred diseases
4. DOWN SIDE? - have never grown tumors, no rejection issues, no immune suppressive drugs
5. AVAILABLE? - treatments are available all over the world
6. HISTORY OF TREATING HEARING? - there is a long history of successful studies - http://repairstemcell.wordpress.com/2009/11/16/hearing-loss-%e2%80%93-a-brief-history/
7. HISTORY OF TREATING OTHER DISEASES? - there are over 2000 clinical trials that prove their therapeutic benefit and safety
8. HOW LONG UNTIL I CAN GET TREATED WITH REPAIR STEM CELLS? – repair stem cell treatments are treating hearing disorders NOW
Repair Stem Cells for a variety of hearing disorders will be available to patients in January at four different treatment centers. Of all the treatments that RSCI recommends to patients; treatments for hearing disorders will be the least expensive and is even available at half price for a limited time.

STEM CELLS CURE HEARING LOSS…WHAT?
A music student is encouraged by her parents (both of whom are doctors) to get stem cell treatment for her hearing loss with spectacular results. Is the increase in her ability to hear the results of the stem cell treatment…or is this another example of the placebo effect gone wild?
So far, the deceived include the girl, her parents, the doctors and the measuring devices! Beware, you may be next! One doctor dismissed the results as placebo effect, saying: “She’s just hearing things!”

American college student suffering from autoimmune hearing loss gains her hearing back in two months after (repair stem cell) treatment.
Chloe Sohl, an 18-year old college student who majors in music at University of Arizona was suffering from autoimmune hearing loss since the age of 15. Although there is no known cause of her diagnosis, it is a serious disease that slowly damages the organs. Chloe’s father, Dr. Bertram Sohl is a director of Obstetrics and Gynecology at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Long Beach, California and her mother, Dr. Veronique Jotterand is an ophthalmologist and Vice Chief of Staff at Miller Children’s Hospital in Long Beach, California.
Even though Chloe’s parents are medical doctors, they felt helpless and devastated about their daughter’s progressive condition. They tried every possible medication, but Chloe’s condition got worse. The only options they had were for Chloe to use a hearing aid and for her to take medication to slow down her autoimmune system. Dr. Tai June Yoo, a professor from University of Tennessee and a medical advisor of (the treatment facility), explained as specialist in immune diseases, that if Chloe continues to take strong medication like Methotrexate and Humira, there will be high chances for further serious complications without guarantee of improvement. Her doctors even recommended Chloe to receive Cochlea implant that would enable Chloe to hear some sound, but would irreversibly destroy the middle ear, which scared her parents.
The principle of adult stem cell therapy is actually simple because it utilizes the natural healing ability of our own body…
“Every part of our body already contains stem cells that play a key role in maintaining and repairing our own structural and functional system. Due to aging, the amount of stem cells decrease and that’s why the time and ability to recover from cellular damage slow down and chronic and degenerative symptoms develop as time goes by. The principle of our stem cell treatment is to make enough amount of stem cells and to bring them back to the patient’s own body. Surprisingly, we found that stem cell therapy has great potential to treat autoimmune diseases,” explained Dr. Ra.
Many stem cell researchers have demonstrated that mesenchymal stem cells modulate the immune system and suppress inflammation as a major therapeutic effect. Chloe’s hearing loss falls into this example. This treatment was supposed to soothe any hypersensitive immune response and repair damaged organs so that she might hear again.
Dr. Sohl was very intrigued for his daughter to receive stem cell treatment, but his wife was skeptical about Chloe getting stem cell therapy at first. Chloe’s physicians even discouraged Chloe from receiving stem cell treatment. (What else is new?) However, they were able to decide to try this treatment for Chloe from seeing (the treatment facility’s) successful outcomes. The great safety profile of (the treatment facility’s) stem cell therapy made them comfortable. Chloe felt assured to accept the therapy.
Chloe said, “I felt very good about it. I felt very optimistic. I’ve had IV’s every month since I started to lose my hearing. It was good because I knew this could work unlike the other ones. I just felt very optimistic about the whole procedure.”
Currently, stem cell transplant is not allowed in some countries like the United States, some European countries, and South Korea unless it gets a market approval through clinical trials as new pharmaceutical drugs undergo. Chloe had to travel outside of the United States and to Japan or China where (the treatment facility) established stem cell clinics. More than 2,000 patients with various diseases have been treated with stem cell therapeutics through (the treatment facility) since 2008.
Chloe’s hearing was tested two months after the procedure was completed on October 16, 2009. The results were spectacular. The left ear improved to 50% from 0%. The right ear gained almost complete hearing. Dr. Jotterand could not bear her excitement, “Now it’s just been a 180 degree turnaround. She’s just enjoying life and enjoying being a freshman at the university.
She’s just having a great time and it’s just wonderful to see the joy in her own face and in her life.”

The Repair Stem Cell victories are coming fast and furious now. Every day, it seems, brings a new story…a new recovery…a new miracle…but let us try to keep them all straight. For the record, 18-year old Chloe Sohl’s Repair Stem Cell victory over her hearing disorder joins 3 year old Chloe’s Repair Stem Cell victory over stroke and cerebral palsy.
CHLOE (LEVINE’S) STORY
It wasn’t until just after Chloe (Levine’s) first birthday
in 2007 that the doctors finally found that…Chloe had suffered a stroke while
she was still within her mother, and she had been born with cerebral palsy
despite her initial healthy appearance.
“Her life is completely normal, she doesn’t drag her right foot, she can use her right hand,” Jenny Levine declared. “She rides a bike, a scooter … we’re taking her skiing this year. She’s fabulous.”
FACING THE TRUE ENEMY
QUESTION: Who Is the Enemy When Your Child is Sick?
1. The Disease
2. The regurgitated misinformation you find on the net and sometimes in the media
3. The Doctors who say they can do nothing more
4. Parents who tell you stem cell treatments are child abuse
All of the above
What force is more powerful than a parent’s love? Confronted by an attacker, a parent can turn ferocious in order to protect their child. Surely one of a parent’s worst fears is that their child be born with or contract an incurable disease. Feelings of guilt, anger, frustration, helplessness and despair are very common. Those emotions mix with the intense desire to lash out and either fix the problem or break whatever and whomever stands in the way of your child’s health. This makes an extremely potent stew. But the disease is only part of the challenge and other elements must be considered. There is so much ignorance surrounding stem cell treatment that some responses when parents initially consider treatment are:
· Embryonic stem cells is murder (ignorance of adult stem cells is still rampant)
· The hospitals are 3rd world
· Child abuse
The road to health is a long and bumpy one and many parents of patients must overcome severe emotional abuse while trying to do the best for their child. Here is one case of an infant born with Aortic Stenosis. The corrective surgery he was given created the condition of Dilated Cardiomyopathy. Here is his mother’s uphill battle to get him healthy:
I now take a representative from the Consumer Health
Advocate org with me to each appointment just to keep things civil. Lee
wasn't born with the condition Dilated Cardiomyopathy, corrective surgeries
for Aortic Stenosis is to blame. His case has been one “stuff-up” after
another and they'd like nothing more than to sweep him under the carpet and I
feel transplant was how they planned to do this. They left him for 11
years with no attempt to fix his valves knowing the heart couldn't
continue to work at that rate.
You may find it interesting to see this story about the mother of an autistic child who also faced ridicule when all she wanted was to get her child healthy:
“My husband and I are trying to raise money to send our son, Niko for Repair Stem Cell treatment for Autism. Wow, we are finding it is like running on sand and people are so cruel. Our son is Autistic. I wish people were more educated on the subject before they crucified us!”
Her response is indicative of what I believe a lot of people are going through right now when they are looking for new treatments to old diseases.
“I will look into this, Thank you! Your email is the first kind email we have received! Thank you for the links! I will join the repair stem cell group right away. We are not going to give up! We have no other option but to fight on! We had to stop the email responses on Niko’s blog, they were just too much for me to handle. Looking forward to keeping in touch with you! Blessings!” FULL STORY
Why are people so resistant to the benefits of RSC? I find it terribly sad that in all of her research and correspondence, my email was the first kind one she received but this type of behavior based on ignorance goes on every day. I can only imagine the ordeal of seeking help for a sick child and facing the misguided “Stem cells is murder” cries from opponents of embryonic stem cells and “Stem cell treatments is child abuse” from those ignorant of the benefits and safety proven in over 2000 clinical trials. The world must seem a very cruel and cold place.
This section honors a member of society who is giving back by sharing their Repair Stem Cell treatment experience with others. Too few people know of the benefits of Repair Stem Cells, their proven safety and their sometimes miraculous results.
We would like to congratulate James Eilert for his work towards advancing Repair Stem Cell Awareness. James is awarded the RSCI Advocate of the Month for November. This is his stem cell treatment and his Advocate of the Month success story.
Two years ago, 40% of James’ left ventricle was totally dead. James received Repair Stem Cells and then two months later had a follow up metabolic stress test using the standard Bruce protocol. James scored 10.1 METs with a VO2 of 32. This was a 20% METs increase and a 12.5% VO2 increase over his original scores!
VO2 max refers to the maximum amount of oxygen that an individual can utilize during intense or maximal exercise. It is measured as "milliliters of oxygen used in one minute per kilogram of body weight" (ml/kg/min).
The doctor that performed his original test called the results “absolutely stunning!” James’ stats put him in the 95th percentile for men his age (50 out of a 100 men his age could not match the performance of a male with 40% of his left ventricle dead!). Two years later, James is healthy and energetic and is an active and strident advocate for Repair Stem Cells. Here he explains where he is today (slightly edited for clarity):
“Today is a great day for me, another milestone. 2 years
have now passed since I decided to change my fate and put my faith in
something I didn’t even know existed just three months prior to my treatment.
