Dr. Ben is focused on Regenerative Medicine and Life Extension. He uses a number of different techniques to accomplish this from herbs and nutritionals to exercise and life style changes. There are also natural and pharmaceutical options for life extension and to increase quality of life. One of the most novel and promising approaches is his use of VSEL’s (very small embryonic like stem cells). VSEL Stem cells can be harvested by simply drawing blood from the arm unlike the usual surgical procedures of liposuction or bone marrow aspiration. Additionally VSEL’s are unique in that they are your own cells so you cannot get a disease or have rejection issues as occur with umbilical stem cells. The VSEL’s can actually be guided to the area that needs healing/renewing with a patented optical laser system. VSEL’s are go anywhere, restore anything cells. The process can be done in the convenience of your own home and takes about 2 hours.
