Coronavirus: How Regenerative Medicine Helps in the Age of Coronavirus

Category: Blog

By Dr. Warren Bleiweiss

The COVID-19, otherwise known as the Coronavirus, is now officially a pandemic. It is causing significant disruptions to our lives. The CDC has already made recommendations on a number of common-sense precautions that we as individuals can practice in the age of coronavirus such as washing hands, social distancing, and wearing a mask if you think you were exposed to the virus.  

Individuals with a weak immune system are more susceptible to contracting the Coronavirus and developing serious health issues as compared to healthy people. Unfortunately, many people expect the worst is yet to come. Still, many others believe the warming weather of spring will help contain the viral spread? In the end, only time will tell.

Boosting Your Immune System to Defend Against Coronavirus 

One simple act to take at home is to take high dosages of Vitamin C and vitamin D3 because these two vitamins enhance the immune system.   The stronger your immune system, the less likely you will be affected. Vitamin C through an IV infusion greatly enhances the bioavailability of vitamin C.  The oral vitamin C absorption rate is an average of 18% while IV delivered vitamin C is 100% bioavailable. However, IV vitamin C infusion is only performed at a medical office. 

At home, we should all increase sun exposure, get enough sleep, practice earthing outside with bare feet and engage in moderate exercise regularly which are all helpful measures to take to help strengthen your immune system.  Eating a healthy diet is very important as science proves that a healthy gut strengthens the immune system. A diet without processed food and sugar is far superior to a diet including such food in keeping your gut healthy. Your gut bacteria play an important role in controlling your immune functions, so taking care of your gut is crucial.  Eating a diet rich in vegetables, fiber, good fats, and quality protein will enable our gut bacteria to keep our immune system running efficiently.  

Another medical tool is to use senolytic agents to kill off senescent cells, also called zombie cells.  These are cells that should have died but did not and they burden the body by secreting certain “bad” growth factors and inflammatory cytokines which affect the immune system negatively.  How do we go about clearing out these cells? There are senolytic agents on the market that are over the counter. We can recommend effective supplements to help remove them.  

Regenerative Medicine Therapies to Defend Against Coronavirus

Services we provide at our office to help strengthen the immune system include:

  • Oxygen ozone infusions.  Using ozone for medical treatments started over 100 years ago.  In fact, it was used to treat infections in world war I. Ozone can significantly boost the immune system and reduce inflammation through combatting pathogens, killing infectious agents like bacteria and viruses, and effectively fighting infectious diseases.  Ozone infusions help the body clear out weak and damaged cells while strengthening healthy cells.  Ozone also helps mobilize our body’s own stem cells. A large number of studies have been conducted on the benefit of ozone therapy including recent studies on its benefits on cardiac functions and oxidative stress.   When administered correctly, ozone infusion is one of the safest and most effective immune booster available.  The famous professional biohacker and the New York Times bestselling author Dave Asprey said in his new book Super Human that ozone is his “go-to when I want to keep my energy levels and immunity high”.  In fact, he devoted a whole chapter to ozone therapy.  
  • VSELs (PERIPHERAL BLOOD STEM CELLS) infusions.  VSELs are pluripotent stem cells circulating in your bloodstream in an inactive form.  When the body has a need, these cells can differentiate into multiple types of cells to serve almost any need.   These cells can be taken from your own blood and prepared in a propriety method and then safely returned to the bloodstream.  What is of significance here is that these cells seem to make the immune system younger and healthier. The reason why some individuals infected by COVID-19 never experience any symptoms is due to their strong immune system.  A healthy immune system is our best tool in the age of coronavirus. Research shows that the telomeres of the immune cells increase in length after a VSELs infusion. An increase in the length of the telomere means that the cell has become “younger” and healthier.  A healthier and younger immune system is much more capable of preventing viral infections. Therefore these VSELs infusions can certainly be a powerful tool in the age of COVID-19. 
  • NAD+ Infusion therapy.  NAD+(nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide) is very important for mitochondria.   NAD+ infusions as a good immune boosting tool because of its effect on the sirtuin pathway and sirtuins seem to be intimately involved with the immune system.  When NAD+ is plentiful, mitochondria are healthy and increase in number. Recently, NAD+ has become a prized molecule in the scientific research community due to its critical role in many biological functions.   A recent Time Magazine article proclaimed NAD+ as the scientific “fountain of youth”.
