Refreshing Communities Through Outdoor Gardens

Five words or less(NewsUSA) – Most Americans believe that before Europeans settled the New World, the continents were largely uninhabited. But when Columbus arrived in the Americas in 1492 there were at least 56 million people living here.
Over 90 percent of the indigenous population was decimated within two generations from disease and war. But the Native American “Indians” left behind over 200,000 incredible pyramid-shaped mounds, complex earthworks (the largest in the world) and walled cities. Today, fewer than 1,000 major mound sites remain.
“America’s Mound Builders created massive earth formations and mounds, and Native American earthworks are actually the biggest and most complex in the world. It’s an archaeological treasure that goes largely unrecognized by the public. One mound complex in Illinois has a pyramid mound over 110 feet high, and its base is larger than the Great Pyramid in Egypt,” stated Dr. Greg Little, author of “The Illustrated Encyclopedia of Native American Mounds & Earthworks.”
“There’s a mystery there,” Little continued. “There is a massive stone chamber inside it that has never been excavated.”
The oldest known mound in the U.S. is in Louisiana, dating back to 3,700 B.C., but all along the Atlantic coast are massive shell mound complexes nearly as old.
“It’s highly likely that there are older mounds hidden in shallow water along the coast that were inundated at the end of the last Ice Age,” Little said. “The Native Americans were building pyramid-shaped mounds more than a thousand years before the Egyptians were, and they can be found in nearly every state.”
In today’s economy Little says that people should consider family vacation trips to the larger archaeological parks and museums that have been established at these major mound sites. Most of these parks and museums have a nominal charge or none at all.
“It’s a way to engage children in our lost or forgotten history and is a great way to teach children about indigenous cultures. Almost every state has a couple major sites,” Little added.

Increase Your Mussel Power in 2012

Five words or less(NewsUSA) – According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Latinos in the U.S. have a longer life expectancy than the non-Latino white population.
Given lower average income and access to health care among Latinos, epidemiologists have proposed various theories to explain this puzzling statistic, dubbed the “Latino Paradox.”
A 2011 study in the American Journal of Epidemiology found the low mortality rates were partially attributable to fewer deaths from cigarette smoking — Latinos are less likely to smoke, and if they do, they tend to smoke less.
Another popular theory points to healthy aspects of Latino culture, including the Latin Diet. In “The Hot Latin Diet,” author Dr. Manny Alvarez says Latin cooking typically includes healthy “power” foods like tomatillos, cilantro and chili peppers.
The capsaicin in chili peppers reduces inflammation. Inflammation aggravates common ailments like headaches and arthritis and has been associated with the development of deadly cancers and heart disease.
“For fabulous flavors and good health, we recommend using the Latin American Diet Pyramid. Let traditional foods — the old ways of your grandmother — be your guide to well being,” said Sara Baer-Sinnott, president of Oldways, a non-profit organization promoting healthy eating habits and creator of the Latin American Diet Pyramid.
There are many new products that make cooking healthy Latin food easier. Chef LaLa, a cookbook author and certified nutritionist, has just launched her new line of all-natural Mexican sauces and marinades.
“Chef LaLa Homemade products are all about easy meal solutions with the healthy natural flavors and ingredients of the traditional Latin Diet,” says Chef LaLa.

Banking on Your Health

Securing your money and valuables – it just makes sense. As any financial consultant will advise, storing your finances and treasures in a secure bank isn’t just sensible, it’s imperative. People with means bank their savings, jewels, important documents and now, their stem cells.

“Think of it as a safety deposit box for your health,” says John Arnone, CEO of American CryoStem, one of the only adult stem cell banks in the world. “People rely on banks for financial security, and with the growing possibilities of stem cells and regenerative medicine, people can now bank for their future health, too.”

A Safety Deposit Box for Your Health

Five words or less(NewsUSA) – As any financial consultant will advise, storing your finances and treasures in a secure bank isn’t just sensible, it’s imperative. People with means bank their savings, jewels, important documents and now, their stem cells.
“Think of it as a safety deposit box for your health,” says John Arnone, CEO of American CryoStem, one of the only adult stem cell banks in the world. “People rely on banks for financial security, and with the growing possibilities of stem cells and regenerative medicine, this concept allows people to bank for their future health, too.”
Fat tissue contains a surplus of viable adult stem cells, which are at the crux of regenerative medicine. While cosmetic surgeons have seen their patient numbers grow across the U.S., the focus has only been on extraction and reuse of the liposuction fat on a patient. Now because of American CryoStem’s method of processing and storage, fat tissue can be made into viable and useful adult stem cells. These stem cells can now be banked and used for better overall health in the future.
According to a report from the Department of Health and Human Services, medical technology is going through a revolution that could yield cures for diseases like diabetes, heart attacks, arthritis, osteoporosis, cancer, spinal cord injuries and more.
“American CryoStem has created a cryopreservation process that allows adults to store their stem cells now and retrieve them for treatment when necessary,” says Arnone. “This type of regenerative medicine could enable medical breakthroughs for any condition resulting from damaged or failing tissue.”
The stem cell extraction process is quick and painless,
taking place at any local American CryoStem provider’s office. The fat sample goes through a secure chain of custody until it is safely preserved in a FDA-approved facility. Banking ensures that a more youthful cell age is captured, and it also prevents any chance of cell rejections in the future.

Transform Lipo Fat Into Future Health Insurance

(NewsUSA) – Nearly everything can be recycled and repurposed for later use — even medical waste. Now, liposuction fat leftovers can be turned into adult stem cells, which can be stored as a tangible form of "bio-insurance" for the future."The evidence strongly suggests that fat stem cells can stimulate the repair process after a heart attack," said American stem cell researcher Douglas Losordo, MD, of the regenerative medicine program at Northwestern Memorial Hospital.In addition to a heart attack, leftover lipo fat can offer a solution in the event of over 100 life-threatening diseases. For families with a history of diabetes, heart disease or neurological disorders, stem cells from fat may offer treatment options unavailable to others.Body fat is an abundant, renewable resource. Research shows that fat, or adipose tissue, is actually a better source of adult stem cells. It’s concentration can be up to 1,000 times greater than what can be extracted from bone marrow, it’s easily accessible and a less invasive procedure. Adipose tissue is currently discarded after liposuction when it could be put to better use. Storing today is essential because as you age, so do your stem cells, limiting their potential for future use.Beneath this umbrella of medical potential, the first adipose adult stem cell bank, American CryoStem, is providing a service and facility to store adult stem cells for future health applications. With American CryoStem providers, a viable fat sample can be extracted from a patient in a simple process taking less than 30 minutes. American CryoStem’s clinical laboratory then isolates the stem cells from the body fat, and the sample is immediately tested for sterility and cell viability. Afterward, the sample is prepared for long-term storage and secured at a FDA-compliant cryopreservation facility.Despite the startling possibilities of regenerative medicine, it’s greatly under-utilized in the U.S. Currently, American CryoStem is the only bank focusing solely on the storage of adipose-derived adult stem cells.To be notified when services become available in your area, pre-enroll with American CryoStem at www.americancryostem.com/pre-enroll-now today.

Adult Stem Cell Research Unlocking New Medical Potential

Throughout research labs and clinical trials across the country, adult stem cells are emerging to offer a variety of medical solutions. While some applaud the shift away from embryonic stem cells, others are still uncertain about the real applicability of adult stem cell research.

Despite the array of misconceptions and caution surrounding regenerative medicine as a whole, shocking and promising discoveries are being made about cell therapies. One such discovery is the ability to extract adult stem cells from body fat, cryogenically preserve them in a stem cell bank to capture your current cell age and use them for personal treatment later on.

One such discovery is the ability to extract adult stem cells from body fat, cryogenically preserve them in a stem cell bank to capture your current cell age and use them for personal treatment later in life.
This technology, offered exclusively by American CryoStem, was developed in response to the increasing applications of adult stem cells globally.
The Wake Forest Institute of Regenerative Medicine is growing entire organs in petri dishes using a patient’s own stem cells. Wake Forest doctor Anthony Atala has engineered ears, fingers and even pulsing, functional blood vessels.
“Another technique that we use is to grow patient’s cells and place them on 3D biodegradable molds to create entire complex organs. After eight weeks of incubation and growth, the new organ can be transplanted,” explains Atala.
In Colorado, a leading spine surgeon successfully performed a lumbar disc procedure using adult stem cells to reverse the disc degeneration and regrow disc cartilage. The preclinical trial offers an alternative to artificial disc replacement and spinal fusion surgeries for sufferers of debilitating back pain.
Researchers are also exploring adult stem cell treatments to improve cardiac function after a heart attack. A hospital in Wales cured blindness from varying levels of cornea damage; doctors in Europe saved a man’s life by growing him a new windpipe; doctors in Cincinnati replaced a child’s missing cheekbones — all using personal adult stem cells.

Are You Kidding? Belly Fat Can Save My Life?

Most people tend to loathe their belly fat, and they’ll expend serious effort to see it disappear. But most people also don’t know that their belly fat contains adult stem cells capable of healing almost anything. They can regrow tissue, form a new breast for post-cancer reconstruction or regenerate skin and muscles of wounded soldiers.

Adult stem cells are the new medicine for the 21st century, and they have yielded far more successful trials and transplants than embryonic stem cells. One company has enabled the potential of adult stem cells to create a health solution for families and their futures. American CryoStem is the first stem cell bank to focus exclusively on adult stem cells isolated from adipose tissue, a.k.a. body fat.

One company has enabled the potential of adult stem cells to create a future solution for families. American CryoStem is the first stem cell bank to focus exclusively on adult stem cells isolated from adipose tissue, a.k.a. body fat.
“Body fat can be medically extracted by certified professionals and turned into viable stem cell samples. These adult stem cells can not only be used to regenerate tissue, they can also reconstruct many types of injuries and defects,” says Richard Jacoby, MD, laboratory director of American CryoStem Corporation. “Adult stem cells are unspecialized, so they can be induced and guided to develop into specific nerves, bone, cartilage or organs.”
With American CryoStem, collecting body fat at a participating local doctor’s office is a simple process requiring less than 30 minutes. The adipose tissue is then shipped to the American CryoStem laboratory facility for processing and tested for sterility and stem cell viability. Individual cell samples are then stored at the company’s long-term cryo-storage facility. Each client sample is continuously monitored, from collection and processing to storage, to create an unbreakable, secure chain of custody. This continuous monitoring and tracking ensure that each client’s adult stem cell sample can be retrieved, and shipped anywhere in the world within 24 hours for a variety of medical applications: skin grafts, reconstructive surgery, transplants and beyond.
American CryoStem isn’t only offering long-term storage, it is offering a form of bio-insurance
— a solution for thousands of people battling afflictions. Only your own cells are a perfect genetic match, leaving no room for cellular rejection.
