Selling stem cells door-to-door

Yesterday afternoon, the front stoop on every house on my block was tagged by a bright neon piece of paper tucked into the railings. Pulling out mine, I was greeted with the message "What have your STEM CELLS done for you lately?" That was just the beginning. "Why not have your own ADULT STEM CELLS work to enhance your health?"

Yesterday afternoon, the front stoop on every house on my block was tagged by a bright neon piece of paper tucked into the railings. Pulling out mine, I was greeted with the message "What have your STEM CELLS done for you lately?" That was just the beginning. "Why not have your own ADULT STEM CELLS work to enhance your health?" The product is "a concentrated natural aquabotanical extract that 'wakes up' our body's stem cells and puts them to work!" For just $59.95, the stem cell enhancer boosts the "natural role of adult stem cells." Two capsules "support the release of stem cells from the bone marrow into the bloodstream. Through a natural process, those stem cells then travel to areas of the body where they are most needed." The flyer, of course, also contained two phone numbers and a Web site where people can find out more information (which I am declining to provide, to minimize any publicity). Does this kind of thing hurt the field?

Don't take products like stem-enhance untill more studies have been done. Instead, use products like Vera-mist that are FDA approved for seasonal allergies so you can trade off sneezing and itchy watery eyes for glaucoma and cataracts. Stay away from natural products, they can't guarantee that they will cause multiple other symptoms just to slow one symptom.

Certainly we are the sum of all the things we?ve read, the input of the people we?ve met and our core beliefs coupled with our acquired experience, knowledge and education. However, if you?ve arrived in a place or a condition that you are not entirely pleased with, it may me appropriate to consider adjusting your course and beliefs based on fresh new concepts and information.\n\nIf you haven?t heard it before, ?Your mind is like a parachute, it only works when it is open!?\n\nPersonally, I recently endured a broken hip for 6 months because I ?believed ? if it was broken that bad it would hurt much more. I finally had it X-rayed and it revealed how very broken it was. What I believed had nothing to do with the cold hard fact that it was severely fractured and is resulting in a hip replacement.\n\nReal possibilities and breakthroughs normally occur when we accept new concepts and ideas that are unfamiliar to us. If we can open up our thinking enough to embrace ideas that perhaps are so new and unfamiliar that we couldn?t even imagine them before, we can experience major breakthroughs.\n\nThe idea of 2 little capsules of stem cell enhancer consumed 2 or 3 times daily making such an incredibly huge difference in our body?s stem cell physiology is not readily accepted. Especially, by educated health professionals who have never been exposed to the concept or had the opportunity to experience or witness the obvious benefits.\n\nMany just cannot believe something so simple could have such a dramatic effect over time?. On the other hand, we are all acquainted with a simple but vital substance called water or H2O. Very simple substance, but vital to our existence. I suggest that stem cell nutrition is just as simple, effective and even vital to our quality of life and longevity.\n\nAll that is required is to simply give it a try for a few weeks or even a few months?. You will be amazed.\n\nMakeMoreStemCellsInfo.com\n\nP.S. No one is selling any "stem cells" and the notion that a Double-Blind Placebo Controlled Cross-Over study is not relevant is an uneducated opinion. Maybe that little detail just slipped by the board who decided to publish the study in their medical journal.
