supporting this idea in
the scientific literature,
and al though my
colleagues and I strongly
believed that the idea
was in fact a truth, at
that time we could not
fi nd many sci enti sts
who agreed wi th us.
For tunatel y, research
developments in the last
three years have proven
us right and have set the
stage for a hi stori cal
change i n the way
people view health and
wellness.
As ear l y as 2001,
sci enti sts publ i shed a
seri es of sci enti fi c
ar ti cl es that
suggested strongl y
that the release and
m i g r a t i o n
phenomenon was
natural. One of the
early studies reported
was performed by
Dr. Di ane Krauss
and her research
team. Dr. Krauss
wanted to answer
this question: “Can
one single stem cell
reconsti tute the
entire blood system?”
Devising a research
protocol to find the
answer was not as simple as one may
think, for it is ver y di ffi cul t to
i denti fy a stem cel l under a
microscope. If you are to simply
inject one, how can you tell that the
one you are looking at is a stem cell?
The process to test the identity of
the cell would damage the cell and
make it no longer usable. They
resorted to an ingenious process. It
is well known that when injected in
the bloodstream, stem cells home to
the bone marrow, and only stem
cells do. Therefore, if one injects a
population of bone marrow cells in
the blood, the only cells to reach the
bone marrow after a few hours are
stem cells. Krause irradiated female
mi ce and i nj ected mal e bone
marrow cells. After a day or so, the
group collected cells from the bone
marrow -onl y stem cel ls- of the

You have heard the statement many times: The
release of stem cells from the bone marrow and
their migration to the body's tissues is a natural
process. Nowadays, those of us associated with
the marketing of StemEnhance
TM
consider this
statement to be a universal truth; but not so
long ago the idea of the natural release and
migration of stem cells was just that… an
idea. Although there was some compelling data

recipient mice, and a single one of
these cells was injected in another
irradiated female. After this step
in the experiment, the researchers
had female mice containing one
si ngl e mal e st em cel l i n t hei r
bodies. Could a single stem cell
keep alive mice whose blood cells
had been damaged by radiation?
The sci ent i st s were soon t o
discover: After a few weeks, the
enti re bl ood system of the test
mice was back, demonstrating that
only one stem cell was sufficient to
reconstitute the blood system!
The study of Krause involved
i nj ecti ng one mal e stem cel l i n
irradiated female mice. Because
male DNA is XY whereas female
DNA i s XX, i t i s possi bl e t o
identify in the body the cells that
came from that one original male
stem cell. When Krause looked at
the animal s al most a year l ater,
cells containing the Y chromosome
were f ound i n var i ous t i ssues
including the intestine, liver, lung
and ski n. Thi s cross-gender
prot ocol ( mal e st em cel l i n a
female mouse) revealed that stem
cells from the bone marrow could
naturally migrate to reach tissues
and become cells of these tissues.
But the stem cells in the Krause
research were not the animal's own
st em cel l s, t hey were i nj ect ed.
Would we see the same migration
and adaptation phenomenon if we
tapped into the natural release of
an ani mal ' s own st em cel l s?
Concurrent with the Krause studies
in 2001, Dr. Donald Orlic and his
research t eam at t he Nat i onal
Institute of Health answered that
question. For their research they
st i mul at ed st em cel l rel ease i n
animal s who had suffered heart
at t acks. In a groundbreaki ng
experiment, Dr. Orlic showed that
dramatically increasing the number
of circulating stem cells for just a
few days actually eliminated scar
t i ssue i n t he hear t and al most
completely restored normal heart
function… in as little as 27 days!

Wi t h t hese t wo
power f ul st udi es
publ i shed fi ve years
ago, one woul d
wonder why it took so
long for the scientific
communi t y to agree
that stem cell release
and mi gr at i on i s a
natural process, and
t hat st em cel l s
constitute the natural
renewal system of the
body. The t r ut h i s
that in spite of these
st udi es, t here were
still many unanswered questions.
Research in the past five years has
added an i mpressi ve amount of
information about stem cells to the
scientific community and to the
world at large. A very impressive
number of articl es publ ished in
prestigious scientific journals now
confi rm the fact that stem cel l
release and migration is, indeed, a
natural process…. both in animals
and in humans.
Onl y f i ve years ago i t was
almost impossible to find scientists
who would take our “idea” about
stem cells seriously. Now, happily,
we find more and more respected
members of the world's scientific
community who support our view.
What' s more, these researchers
now see in this discover y a new
way of thinking about health and
wellness. If science
has di scovered t hat

t here a bet t er
