02/01/2016 12:00 pm PDT
My guest on this episode of Business Game Changers is Matt Feshbach, the CEO of Okyanos, a clinic and research facility located in the Bahamas working on therapies utilizing adult stem cells. Their work has been yielding amazing results from accelerated tissue repair, stimulated tissue regeneration, decreased inflammation, prevention of further cell death, to the creation of new blood vessels. They are considerably improving the lives of people with conditions such as heart disease, autoimmune diseases such as MS and diabetes and are also helping people with neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and even strokes. They continue to have amazing success without safety issues, but the FDA has not approved their treatments in the United States, even though these treatments have been approved internationally in Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, and throughout Europe and have been shown to have an excellent safety profile.
This episode we talk with Matt Feshbach about adult stem cells, how they work, and what they are capable of doing. We also discuss the FDA, his company, and the challenges they face in bringing this technology and treatments to the many people in the United States who could benefit immensely from their therapies.
From Okyanos website on what Adult Stem Cells are and what they do:
The adult stem cells stored in your body fat could be likened to small “physicians” who diagnose and correct individual areas of the body in need of special attention. Because these cells have the capacity to detect changes in the body, which are causing pain or dysfunction, they respond and communicate with the body’s needs to provide the correct tools needed for healing. These adult stem cells are commonly referred to as “repair cells” for their ability to heal injured organs or body parts.
