No painkillers, medications and surgeries are involved, while treating benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) and sciatica / chronic lower back pain with Thermobalancing therapy, Fine Treatment reveals. So undesirable side effects arising from conventional treatment options can now be avoided. The only thing patients need are unique Dr. Allens devices that go on top of the painful area while treating back pain or must be applied to the coccyx area for the prostate problems. Thats it!
Lower back pain treatment and relief without surgery can be a reality with the Thermobalancing therapy. Forget the surgery that will leave your bank account empty, or the painkillers that you will have to absorb for the rest of your life, says Dr. Ralph Saint-Phard, MD, Lincoln Medical and Mental Health Center, USA.
According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), chronic lower back pain is most likely caused by degenerative conditions such as arthritis or disc disease. Lower back pain is one of the most common medical problems, affecting 8 out of 10 people at some point during their lives. So Dr Allen’s devices and the Thermobalancing therapy they enable can benefit a large share of the US population.
Regarding the application of the Thermobalancing therapy to the treatment of BPH, you can watch a short video on how Dr. Allens device has helped a user with prostate enlargement: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5xidswhxJM.
On the other hand, according to the Bladder and Bowel Foundation, although effective in relieving symptoms of an enlarged prostate, transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP) can cause complications, leading to retrograde ejaculation. There are several types of drugs that act differently in reducing BPH symptoms which, according to the American Urological Association, have known side effects which vary from drug to drug. A user can start having stomach or intestinal problems, sinus congestion, headache, or dizziness.
The natural Thermobalancing therapy relieves pain in the lower back and sciatica, is beneficial for an enlarged prostate, and most importantly has no side effects, says Dr. Allen. Dr. Allens devices are the first successful natural solution for benign prostatic hyperplasia and lower back pain and sciatica, at the affordable price.

Cell Therapy now being used for carpal tunnel syndrome at the Center for Regenerative Medicine. “Current studies seem to be very impressive with use of regenerative medicine in orhopedic problems,” A.J. Farshchian MD From the center for regenerative medicine said earlier in a discussion on arthritis and sports injuries.
Carpal tunnel syndrome occurs when the median nerve, which runs from the forearm into the hand, becomes pressed or squeezed at the wrist. The median nerve controls sensations to the palm side of the thumb and fingers except for the fifth digit or also known as little finger, Median nerve also carries impulses to some small muscles in the hand that allow the fingers to move. The carpal tunnel is a narrow, rigid passageway of ligament and bones at the base of the hand which contains the median nerve.
Sometimes, thickening from irritated tendons or other swelling narrows the tunnel and causes the median nerve to be compressed. The result may be pain, weakness, or numbness in the hand and wrist, radiating up the arm. Although painful sensations may indicate other conditions, carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common and widely known of the entrapment neuropathies in which the body’s peripheral nerves are compressed or traumatized Symptoms of Carpal tunnel syndrome starts gradually, with frequent burning, tingling, or itching numbness in the palm of the hand and the fingers, especially the thumb and the index and middle fingers. Some carpal tunnel sufferers say their fingers feel useless and swollen, even though little or no swelling is apparent.
The symptoms often first appear in one or both hands during the night, since many people sleep with flexed wrists. A very common symptom is the patient may wake up from sleep, feeling the need to “shake out” the hand or wrist. As symptoms worsen, people might feel tingling during the day. Decreased grip strength may make it difficult to form a fist, grasp small objects, or perform other manual tasks. In chronic and/or untreated cases, the muscles at the base of the thumb may waste away. Some people are unable to tell between hot and cold by touch.
Carpal tunnel syndrome is often the result of a combination of factors that increase pressure on the median nerve and tendons in the carpal tunnel, rather than a problem with the nerve itself. There may be a genetic factor since the carpal tunnel is simply smaller in some people than in others. Other contributing factors include trauma or injury to the wrist that cause swelling, such as sprain or fracture, mechanical problems in the wrist joint, fluid retention during pregnancy or menopause, work stress, repeated use of vibrating hand tools rare causes such as over activity of the pituitary gland; hypothyroidism; rheumatoid arthritis; or the development of a cyst or tumor in the canal are possible as well. There is little clinical data to prove whether repetitive and forceful movements of the hand and wrist during work or leisure activities can cause carpal tunnel syndrome.
Repeated motions performed in the course of normal work or other daily activities can result in repetitive motion disorders such as bursitis and tendonitis. Women are three times more likely than men to develop carpal tunnel syndrome, perhaps because the carpal tunnel itself may be smaller in women than in men. The dominant hand is usually affected first and produces the most severe pain. Persons with diabetes or other metabolic disorders that directly affect the body’s nerves and make them more susceptible to compression are also at high risk. Carpal tunnel syndrome usually occurs only in adults.
The risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome is not confined to people in a single industry or job, but is especially common in those performing assembly line work – manufacturing, sewing, finishing, cleaning, and meat, poultry, or fish packing. In fact, carpal tunnel syndrome is three times more common among assemblers than among data-entry personnel. A 2001 study by the Mayo Clinic found heavy computer use (up to 7 hours a day) did not increase a person’s risk of developing carpal tunnel syndrome.
According recent data an estimated 3/ 10,000 workers lost time from work because of carpal tunnel syndrome. Half of these workers missed more than 10 days of work. The average lifetime cost of carpal tunnel syndrome, including medical bills and lost time from work, is estimated to be about $ 30,000 for each injured worker. Early diagnosis and treatment are important to avoid permanent damage to the median nerve. A physical examination of the hands including Tapping over the carpal tunnel may result in tingling sensation in the distribution of the median nerve in carpal tunnel syndrome. This is known as Tinels sign. Another exam is Phalens test which while the wrists are held in flexion for 60 seconds or less and patient begins to experience symptoms. (see picture). The wrist is also examined for tenderness, swelling, warmth, and discoloration. Ultrasound of the median nerve is also usually useful.

Veteran’s Day Honor: Search & Rescue Dogs of 9-11 Receive Breakthrough Stem Cell Regenerative Therapy from MediVet-America
Nashville, TN (PRWEB) November 10, 2011
One of the last surviving search & rescue dogs deployed in the 9/11 attacks, now 15 years old, will receive a breakthrough stem cell regenerative treatment from MediVet-America to help ease crippling arthritis and live out her days in greater comfort. At least two other 9/11 dogs also will receive the same stem cell therapy.
Only about a dozen of the nearly 100 search & rescue dogs that were sent to the World Trade Center in New York City, the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., and Shanksville, PA, are still alive today.
Bailey, a black Labrador retriever who is retired from service, will undergo the drug-free procedure on Veterans Day, Friday, Nov. 11, 2011, 10 a.m., at Companion Animal Hospital, in Goodlettsville, TN, near Nashville. It will be performed by Dr. Mary Ergen, D.V.M., and Katherine Wilkie, director of lab services for MediVet-America, which is donating the procedure.
Along with her handler, Keith Lindley of Thompson Station, TN, Bailey was mobilized by FEMA to the Pentagon on September 12, 2001. For 11 days she searched the disaster site and acted as a therapy dog for the first responders and military personnel who were devastated by the experience and missing their own families and pets. Later, Bailey went to Salt Lake City, UT, for the 2002 Winter Olympics and did wilderness searches back home. Today, she is stiff-legged from severe arthritis.
It seems fitting that on Veterans Day, when we honor all who have served our country, we are helping one of the unsung heroes of 9-11, said Lindley. I saw firsthand how Bailey and the other search & rescue dogs made a big difference in a terrible tragedy. And she may have many good years ahead. Her mother is now 18 years old.
Also to receive stem cell treatment in the coming weeks is Red, a 12 year old black Lab who was sent to the Pentagon on September 16 with her handler, Heather Roche of Annapolis, MD. Red also worked for 11 days, finding the remains of victims in the north parking-lot area. She later responded to Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. No longer able to handle tasks like climbing a two-story ladder, Red retired in July. Ms. Roche said, Red wants to work, but her body just cant do it anymore.
A third 9/11 search & rescue dog that searched the ruins at Ground Zero, Hoke, owned by Julie Noyes of Indiana, also will be treated.
Veterinarians and researchers describe stem cell regenerative therapy as a major scientific development in the treatment of arthritis, hip dysplasia, ligament and cartilage injuries and other degenerative joint diseases in dogs, cats, horses and other animals. The technology uses an adult animals own stem cells to heal itself.
MediVet-Americas treatment involves removing fat tissue from the animal, separating the stem cells from the fat, activating and then injecting the cells into the affected areas. Within four to six weeks, animals that had been in severe pain with a restricted range of motion are able to walk, run and even jump again.
The key to the procedure is an advanced, patented L.E.D. technology that activates millions of dormant stem cells present in fat tissue.
We are proud to help the unsung canine heroes of 9-11 on this first Veterans Day following the 10th anniversary of the attacks, said MediVet-America managing director Jeremy Delk. They deserve the very best stem cell therapeutic care that is now being received by animals across the nation.
The worlds leading research and development company in veterinary stem cell technology, MediVet-America provides innovative cell applications for the therapeutic care of animals. Headquartered in Nicholasville, Kentucky, MediVet-America develops advanced cellular designed kits and services for the treatment of osteoarthritis and degenerative joint disease. The company also offers MediVet Lab Services in multiple locations around the world that provides technical support for in-house stem cell vets, as well as regional and national Adipose stem cell processing and cyro banking services for pets at a young age or for a maintenance program, autologous conditioned serum processing, and cell counting for in-house stem cell procedures.

Story: Britain is facing an osteoarthritis (OA) time bomb as cases are set to double to over 17 million by 2030 according to OANation 2012, a new report released today by the charity Arthritis Care. The number of people living with osteoarthritis is predicted to rise dramatically over the next 20 years as two of the main risk factors for developing the disease — obesity rates and an ageing population (over 50) − are projected to increase. Of the 8.5 million people in the UK who suffer with OA – the joint related illness commonly occurring in hips, knees and hands – 71% are currently in some form of constant pain due to their condition, with one in eight (over 1 million people in the UK) describing the pain as “unbearable”. The report also shows that one in five people had to give up work or retire early — on average 7.8 years early – because of their symptoms. There are currently no clear guidelines for the treatment of OA and the condition is often hard to diagnose with over a quarter (29%) of those living with disease forced to visit their GP upwards of three times before being diagnosed. Arthritis Care are calling upon Government and policy makers to address the pain and suffering endured by millions of people living with OA and put in place clear, thorough and robust strategy outcomes across England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Other key findings: • People with OA face £2.6 billion in extra costs annually – or £500 person – as a result of medical …

Cell therapy may be effective against arthritis of fingers, says A.J. Farshchian MD from the Center for regenerative medicine.
A very common type of arthritis that we encounter here is Osteoarthritis of fingers. This is even becoming more common no thanks to advancements in technology. (use of computer keyboard or videogames or certain pocket organizers and cell phones) Repetitive motion is most likely the number one cause of osteoarthritis of fingers, common sign of osteoarthritis in the fingers is a knobby bony deformity at the smallest joint of the end of the fingers. This is called Heberden’s node. The bony deformity is a result of the bone spurs or osteophytes from the osteoarthritis in that joint. This deformity limits the range of motion of the joint. Typically is not painful but sometimes patient may experience severe pain in the fingers.
