Several years ago, Ryan Lee was diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder (psoriatic arthritis), and ignored the advice of his MD to go on chemo, while instead focused on coming up with a psoriatic arthritis diet plan, and simplifying his life, relationships, business, and more.

For the past three years, I've been tirelessly toiling behind the scenes to create the book I've personally always wished existed: a complete guide to optimizing the human body, mind, and spirit—written with no stone unturned, no fluff, no “watered down” drivel—just pure, hardcore, practical, from-the-trenches content. I won't lie: nearly every big New York publishing house turned me down for this book. It was too big. (The completed manuscript was over 1100 pages, and we trimmed it down to 608 pages for the final release.) It was too comprehensive. (It wasn't a flash-in-the-pan,...

"Held Hostage. The FDA ruled last week that your own stem cells from your own fat are a drug and only they have jurisdiction over them. All stem cell treatments using your own cells in the USA now must be from bone marrow. Japan, Panama and many other progressive countries have moved in the opposite direction and have approved stem cells from your fat for their citizens due to the high safety and efficacy rate. This affects all of us. Big Pharma is now regulating your body. Legally."

My podcast guest on today's show, Dr. Tami Meraglia is a double board certified MD, who recently posted to a private Facebook group we are both part of the message above.

I found this post so disturbing that I invited her on my podcast to discuss the current state of stem cells and legality in the US and we take a deep dive on this show. Dr. Meraglia is the author of The Nationally Best Selling book The Hormone Secret and the CEO of Global Stemology and Seattle Stem Cell Center, the only Stem Cell Clinic in the Nation that provides complimentary hormone, nutrition and inflammation program to every stem cell patient.

She is keynote speaker for the American Academy of Anti-Aging and conferences in the US, Canada, Asia and Dubai. She has appeared on Good Morning America, Fox National News and has hosted multiple radio shows. After an illustrious career in the ballet, she discovered that she had a great talent for chemistry; combining that with her intense desire to make a difference and a career in medicine was launched.

During our discussion, you'll discover:

-Tami's history in the realm of stem cells, and how she began using them in her practice...8:55

-How the FDA is currently regulating stem cells...15:26

  • Many stem cell clinics store their cells at U.S. Stem in Florida
  • U.S. Stem uses a collaganese enzyme to break down fat and access the stem cells
  • U.S. Stem was issued a cease and desist by the FDA
    • Anything that is more than "minimally manipulated" (by the FDA's parameters) has become a drug, and therefore must be regulated by the FDA
    • It must go through a pharmaceutical manufacturing process
    • Extremely expensive process; pharmaceutical companies will profit handsomely while delivering an inferior product
  • "Why should the FDA say we have the right to one source of stem cells and not the other?"
  • The next wave of stem cell scrutiny will be with bone marrow
  • Big Pharma perhaps sees stem cell industry as a threat to the status quo, hence this legal action
  • Pain is a perceptive thing; the procedure isn't really painful
  • Bone marrow transplant is as good or better than fat

-How concerned consumers can get involved with this issue should they wish to do so...26:40

  • An attorney has been retained by several previous stem cell patients
  • It's a waiting game

  • NAD antioxidants
  • VSEL's require a light and temperature stress
    • They pass the blood brain barrier

-The type of protocols co-administered with stem cells to increase their efficacy...36:20

  • Can't be done with the typical Western medicine mentality
  • If your stem cells are seeds that are growing, the soil in which it grows matters a great deal
  • There's "clean" lifestyle and there are things that help the stem cells and the mitochondria that supports them
  • Stem cells are attracted to areas of inflammation
  • Don't waste them on the gut when the gut can be healed in other ways
  • Modern farming practices make our soil deficient in magnesium

  • Fasting to up regulate stem cells
    • Intermittent fasting is ideal for most
    • 24 hour fast is necessary for some

  • A lot of men are on progesterone (if estrogens are high)
