Celebrating 5 Years

Restoralife Celebrates 5 Years of Helping People be free from pain and avoid Surgeries!!

As August approaches RestoraLife will hit its fifth year of treating chronic pain and injury with its treatment methods. Upon opening in 2013, Restorative Treatments were not well known, often misunderstood and typically thought of as “alternative medicine”. As the field of Regenerative Medicine has exploded, RestoraLife has continued to stay on the cutting edge of care and has even become a first choice for many healthcare providers and their families.

restoralife reviewsThe documented results and benefits of regenerative treatments over time have made it a popular option for relieving pain and recovering from injury.  It has also become a first line of treatment for almost all professional sports franchises to treat injured players and every day people are utilizing regenerative treatments to relieve pain and recover from chronic conditions or injuries. It’s easy to see that our society is moving towards using regenerative medicine to aid physical ailments and degeneration. Whether it’s hair loss, bone or nerve degeneration, aesthetic or even sexual dysfunction, regenerative medicine offers solutions.  In fact, the industry is expected to achieve a compound annual growth rate of 33% over the next 7 years.  With the growing occurrence of chronic diseases, increases in government and private funding and the growth in the geriatric population, it’s easy to see this growth being achieved.

Over the past 5 years, the staff at RestoraLife has been dedicated to staying at the forefront of the regenerative medicine field and honing our treatment methods to be as safe and effective as possible.  During this time, we have helped thousands of patients avoid surgery, live with less pain and maintain the lifestyle they want.  We have not only seen patients improve physically, but we have witnessed the social and emotional gains that people experience when treated successfully.  Furthermore, these outcomes have been achieved using minimally invasive procedures that require no medications and no recovery time. The staff collectively agree that the most exciting part of our growth has been the return of former patients with new issues and the amount of referrals from friends and family of successfully treated patients.

As we reach this milestone, we would like to thank all of the patients we’ve had the pleasure of treating.  We would like to recognize the fact that they put their trust and quality of life in our hands.  There is no doubt that each patient and each condition has contributed to the betterment of RestoraLife and regenerative medicine as a whole. Many patients have come to us with little or no hope, and have given up with trying to find traditional medicines that work, finding themselves with little optimism for their future. RestoraLife is proud to have treated these individuals and honored to play a role in their recovery/healing process.

Regenerate natural function of your body

Regenerative medicine is the restorative process used to restructure and improve the function of damaged tissues, organs, joints, and nerves on a cellular level.

Over the past ten to twenty years the medical field has grown exponentially. Medications have been created and improved upon, surgeries are now being performed remotely and more recently, the world of regenerative medicine has exploded on the scene as a major player in the medical industry.  What was once considered experimental and controversial research has turned into a thriving industry that keeps pushing forward and breaking new ground.

Regenerative medicine is the restorative process used to restructure and improve the function of damaged tissues, organs, joints, and nerves on a cellular level. It has proven affective in treating a variety of musculoskeletal conditions, ranging from cervical/lumbar pain, to knees that are bone on bone, to something as simple as plantar fasciitis. Patients are treated using different cellular based therapies such as lasers, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), stem cells, prolotherapy, exosomes, etc.

Regenerative medicine can be administered for both preventative measures as well as existing conditions to help avoid surgeries, prescription pain pills, and steroid injections; all of which have the potential to further deteriorate your health long term. Why is that so important?

avoid-surgery-regenerative-medicineWhen a patient makes the decision to undergo surgery or receive injections they typically only focus on an isolated area of the body temporarily taking care of only a portion of the pain experienced. Key word being temporarily. By hyper-focusing on the “one” problem and not addressing the body as a whole, patients often find themselves back at square one, if not worse than before.  Regenerative medicine takes a systematic, long lasting, whole body approach to relieving pain, rather than treating and masking the symptoms only.  This approach allows the original source of the issue to be tracked down and treated along with the symptomatic issues.  For example, when a patient experiences SI Joint pain or discomfort, it will typically not only present itself only in the region of the joint, but also down the leg, tightening the IT band which can ultimately cause knee pain. Taking all of this into consideration, a treatment protocol can be created to ensure that the patient has been rid of both the referred pain and the primary source of pain.

It should be noted however, that regenerative medicine is not a drug, it is not an overnight fix, and it is not always right for every condition or individual.  It is an attempt to regenerate the natural state and function of your body.  So how does someone find out if regenerative medicine is right for him or her?  

With regenerative medicine now at an all time peak of discussion it is extremely important to become your own advocate and educate yourself on what these modalities can really do for you. We as a society have been conditioned to trust in initial diagnoses given with no hope. A primary example is the amount of knee and back surgeries that are done a year that could have been prevented by using regenerative medicine. There are numerous ways to become informed about this type of medicine; however, it is crucial to meet with a professional who is well educated on the matter. Setting up an appointment with an informed individual or even attending a seminar is a great way to obtain the knowledge so you can make an informed decision on what is right for you.

If you or a loved one are suffering from chronic pain and are looking for alternatives to prescription medications and surgeries, consider calling RestoraLife today.  RestoraLife takes pride in staying at the forefront of regenerative medicine and has successfully treated thousands of patients.  Call 321-610-1848 to RSVP for an upcoming Lunch & Learn Seminar or schedule your complimentary consultation.

One More Reason Why You Shouldn’t Put Up with Chronic Pain

Chronic pain is difficult to deal with no matter what age you are.

It’s the top reason why people end up on long-term disability. It lowers the quality of your life, making you give up your favorite activities and keeps you home-bound and lonely.

chronic painPain makes it difficult for you to get a good night of sleep. It often changes the personality of the pain victim, making him or her grumpy and sharp with family members.

You’ll do the best you can with the chronic pain you have. You’ll take pain medications that can cost $500/month or more, get to bed early, and eat a healthier diet … but often times, the pain is still there, day after day. It leaves you frustrated, desperate and wanting to give up.

And if that’s not bad enough, there’s one more thing that chronic pain causes that may surprise you: Chronic pain shrinks the brain 10% – equal to what happens from aging 10-20 years!

This was discovered in 2004 at Northwestern University when scientists found that chronic back pain – pain lasting six months or longer – isn’t just a figment of the imagination. It’s causing real damage.

It’s causing abnormal brain chemistry. More specifically, the parts of your brain needed for decision making, controlling social behavior, and assessing what’s happening with yourself and others emotionally are the parts that shrink. These parts of your brain are important parts for your ability to think.

That means if chronic pain is left to continue, you might expect a decrease in your IQ. Isn’t getting older hard enough – without suffering a corresponding decrease in IQ?

What Causes Chronic Back Pain?

Chronic back pain can result from one of several causes: osteoarthritis, sciatica, stenosis, fracture of the vertebrae, or herniated disk. These may be accompanied by peripheral neuropathy, the loss of feeling of a leg and foot and loss of the feeling of where the foot actually is while walking. Peripheral neuropathy can result in falling, breaking a bone, and many new problems thereafter.

chronic back painHere’s an example of how chronic back pain destroyed the life of one man named Frank. He had osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, sciatica, and fibromyalgia. He had a titanium plate in his neck at the level of the second cervical vertebrae down to the seventh cervical vertebrae. He rated his pain level at 7-8 most of the time, but sometimes it was at a level of 10 (This is where you want to die because the pain is so bad.).

He couldn’t sleep, couldn’t sit without help, couldn’t breathe properly at night unless sitting propped up in a chair. He couldn’t even dress himself. His doctor told him to double his pain medication.

Imagine the brain shrinkage that Frank was suffering from – as well as all the other problems that are from the chronic pain.

But by a stroke of good luck or good timing or whatever you want to attribute it to, Frank found out about RestoraLife’s new natural regenerative therapies. He then made a good decision that changed the entire course of his life.

After only two treatments, his pain started decreasing. Slowly his robotic movements due to chronic pain became more human-like and his real personality started shining through his daily behavior.

Now he’s pain-free. He doesn’t even use painkillers anymore. And he has successfully salvaged his brain from shrinking any further.

RestoraLife Regenerative Care, located in Melbourne, uses state-of-the-art therapeutic laser therapy combined with cell based therapy, concentrated Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and connective tissue treatments – all non-surgical and restorative without adding harmful medications.

Are the effects you’re experiencing from chronic pain worth a consultation?

Top Two Most Common Knee Injuries

Knees take a beating. Whether you are walking, jogging, or just performing everyday activities, you put pressure on your knees.

This revealing information is provided by —

Harvard Health Publications:
Let’s look at weight and your knees. When you walk on level ground, the force on your knees is the equivalent of 1½ times your body weight. That means a 200-pound person will put 300 pounds of pressure on their knees with each step. Add incline, and the pressure is even greater: the force on each knee is two to three times your body weight when you walk up and down stairs, and four to five times your body weight when you squat to tie a shoelace or pick up an item you dropped.

Our ability to withstand incredible forces on our knees can be exceeded and result in minor injuries, such as strains and sprains, or major injuries, such as torn ligaments, tendons, muscles or damage to cartilage. During Wimbledon 2017 The Championships, Bethany Mattock-Sands ruptured her patellar tendon. This is an excellent example of a fit, lean, professional athlete sustaining a debilitating injury.

Pre-existing joint damage from arthritis, trauma or anatomic abnormalities adds a further mechanical burden on normal joint function. Athletes will want to do everything they can to reduce the risk of injury and manage the risks they cannot eliminate. Weight reduction, flexibility/strength training, and sensible training habits are among the controllable risks.

What options do athletes who have active musculoskeletal problems have to reduce pain?

Let’s address two of the most common knee injuries: Osteoarthritis (also known as degenerative arthritis or degenerative joint disease, or DJD) and Patellar Tendonitis

1.) Osteoarthritis of the Knee

regenerative medicine osteoarthritisOsteoarthritis is a progressive and irreversible degenerative condition that can occur independent of trauma, overuse or the inevitable aging process. This type of joint inflammation usually involves large joints such as the spine, hips, and knees but can also be detected in smaller joints. The most severe forms of degenerative joint disease frequently leads to total joint replacement to control chronic pain. In the less severe forms, activity can result in severe pain and is usually eased by rest.
Athletes have reported that knee compression wraps and knee compression sleeves can improve functional movement and even reduce pain.

RestoraLife is giving chronic pain and arthritis sufferers new hope with Regenerative Medicine (Stem Cells, PRP, Laser Therapy). Results indicate improved cartilage growth and added mobility. Also, these revolutionary treatments stop the degenerative process in its tracks; keeping the OA condition from worsening.

 

 

 

2.) Patellar Tendonitis

Patellar TendonitisPatellar tendonitis, also know as Jumper’s Knee, is recognized as inflammation of the patellar tendon. This tendon attaches to the inferior patellar margin and the proximal tibia. This tendon is necessary to extend the knee and is used repetitively in endurance sports and explosively with jumping or sprinting sports. It’s important to emphasize that proper weight, strength and flexibility activities are essential to proper function.

Bands that are designed to assure proper alignment of the patellar tendon can reduce the side-to-side movement of the patella and the resultant improper mechanics. However, many devices apply posterior pressure on the tendon and patella and are uncomfortable to wear.

Stem Cells are a great option to avoid surgery and medications for pain caused by Patellar tendonitis. Stem Cells can heal and regrow tendons, muscles, bone and more. Stem cells will become any cell that the body needs, due to injury. When stem cells multiply, they are able to heal the body faster, naturally and more effectively than masking the pain with drugs or other devices.

If you or someone you know is suffering from chronic pain due to injury, call RestoraLife for a complimentary consultation to see which of our Regenerative Medicine treatments are best for you. (321) 610-1848

 

Regenerative Medicine Regenerates Earlier Dreams and Goals, Too

Regenerative Medicine Regenerates Earlier Dreams and Goals, Too

Each year you gain another year of wisdom but on the other hand, you may be losing ground with your body. You feel older and your joints aren’t as flexible as they once were. You move slower and your reaction times are not as fast simply because you know if you moved fast, you would hurt something!

You may wonder where your life is headed. How much decrease in quality of life will you experience before an answer shows up?

Regenerative Medicine RegeneratesDoctors Agree That Something Better Than Before is Here Now

Compassionate medical doctors feel your emotional pain, too – and have seen that the old ways of treating their patients via surgery, medications and physical therapy simply are not good enough anymore. They want to and finally can do something that has not previously been available – harness the power of your body to heal itself by giving it a boost with one of medicine’s finest advancements ever – one called regenerative medicine.

Regenerative medicine utilizes the earliest cell type in the body you had when you were a fetus growing in your mother’s womb called a stem cell. This stem cell has almost magical properties to it because it has the capability of turning into one of many different types of cells of the body’s muscles, bones and joints; skin or nervous system.

Once these cells are injected into the body, they get busy and start creating the new cells that are needed to regenerate the type of tissue that is damaged. These treatments are called cell-based treatments.

Besides cell based therapy, platelet-rich plasma (PRP) which contains growth factors to make cells grow big and strong, and laser therapy may also be used in the procedure. These additional two treatments enhance what the stem cells are doing.

Regenerative Medicine is Changing the World, One Dream at a Time

No matter what your age is, the new regenerative medicine processes have proven that tissues are renewed or regenerated. Those who have had pain previously in a shoulder, SI joint, knee joint or vertebrae of the spine and decide on the regenerative medicine approach are consistently reporting results not seen before without surgery. They have greater range of motion, a significant reduction in pain, and perhaps best of all – they are changing their old stagnant plans of staying home and on the couch to plans that make their dreams come true.

Sometimes their dreams are simple ones like tossing a football with the grandchildren but other times they are even grander, such as running a marathon, getting remarried, and traveling the world.

Check in with your own dreams and what’s going on in your body. Is there a mismatch?

Stem Cells Become Any Cell

Stem Cells will become any cell needed in the body to repair painful or injured areas

Stem cells are incredibly special because they have the potential to become any kind of cell in the body. This fascinating ability to transform and divide has made stem cells a rich source in repairing damaged tissue, tendons, ligaments, cartilage and bone. When a stem cell divides, each “daughter” cell has the potential to either remain a stem cell or become another type of cell with a more specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, liver cell, nerve cell or cardiac cell.

Stem Cells Become Any CellStem Cells Responsible for building and maintaining the human body

RestoraLife’s cell-based protocols are available for anyone experiencing chronic pain as a result of aging or injury. As we age, our bodies lose muscle mass, strength and cell regeneration. Our vital organs begin to lose some function as you age during adulthood. Aging changes occur in all of the body’s cells, tissues, and organs, and these changes affect the functioning of all body systems. Living tissue is made up of cells. And like us, our cells do not live forever. Most of the cells in our bodies today were not with us when we were born. Cells can split only a limited number of times. For example, fibroblasts, the collagen-producing skin cells, typically divide about 50 times. Once a cell reaches this end point, it enters a stage in which it no longer divides and finally dies. When the cell receives certain chemical signals that its time is up, the cell switches on a program called apoptosis that leads to the cell’s death. In other words, a cell that learns its time has come.

This being said, we harvest healthy cells from a donor and inject them into the injured area which boosts your body’s ability to heal again. Stem cells differ from other kinds of cells in the body. All stem cells—regardless of their source—have three general properties: they are capable of dividing and renewing themselves for long periods; they are not modified for a particular purpose or function and give rise to specialized cell types.

Chronic pain – #1 cause of long-term disability

Pain affects more Americans than diabetes, heart disease and cancer combined — Regenerative Medicine can help

chronic pain sufferersPain is cited as the most common reason Americans access the health care system. It is a leading cause of disability and it is a major contributor to health care costs.According to the National Center for Health Stati stics (2006), approximately 76.2 million, one in every four Americans, have suffered from pain that lasts longer than 24 hours and millions more suffer from acute pain. Chronic pain is the most common cause of long-term disability. The diversity of pain conditions requires a diversity of research and treatment approaches.
Pain can be a chronic disease, a barrier to cancer treatment, and can occur alongside other diseases and conditions (e.g. depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, traumatic brain injury).

For infants and children, pain requires special attention, particularly because they are not always able to describe the type, degree, or location of pain they are experiencing. Discoveries of differences in pain perceptions and responses to treatment by gender has have led to new directions for research on the experience and relief of pain. For example, medications called kappa-opioids provide good relief from acute pain in women, yet increase pain in men. NIH-supported scientists identified a gene variant of an enzyme that reduces sensitivity to acute pain and decreases the risk of chronic pain.

COX-2 (cyclooxygenase-2) is a major contributor to pain associated with inflammation. A study of genes affected by COX-2 led to the discovery of its role in connection to multiple cellular pathways that contribute to pain relief and adverse side-effects. Behavioral interventions for pain also demonstrate promise for providing pain relief either in conjunction with or in lieu of drug interventions. For example, NIH-supported research has demonstrated that individualized pain management programs may reduce cancer pain for some patients.

Unlike acute pain, which lasts temporarily, chronic pain is persistent and the pain signals continue for weeks, months or even years.

The definition of chronic pain is broad, and is generally defined as ‘any pain lasting for more than 12 weeks.’  Chronic pain has a lot of causes, ranging from initial injury or ongoing illness. There may also be no clear cause. As a result, chronic pain can be very hard to treat and can have negative impacts on patients’ lifestyles. If you or a loved one suffer from chronic pain, you are not alone.

We bring you key facts and statistics related to who is affected by chronic pain, its costs and how to manage it:

1) More than half of all adults in the United States have experienced chronic or recurrent pain in the past year.

2) Four most common types of chronic pain are:

  1. Low back pain (27%)
  2. Severe headache or migraine pain (15%)
  3. Neck pain (15%)
  4. Facial pain (4%)

The figures provided are from participants taking part in a National Institute of Health Statistics survey.

3) Women are more likely to experience the four most common types of chronic pain, and twice as likely to suffer from severe headaches, migraines or facial pain than men.

4) Age is an important factor when it comes to who is affected by chronic lower back pain. People 18-44 years old were less likely to experience lower back pain compared to those aged 45 and over, as found in a survey by the CDC.

5) Lower back pain is the most common form of frequent or chronic pain, affecting more than 26 million Americans between the ages of 20-64.

6) 7% of ongoing lower back pain cases develop into chronic pain.

chronic pain medication alternativeDid You Know Many Americans view pain as a misfortune and a sign of weakness?

Therefore, they believe it’s best to just keep going, as the pain should be dealt with by toughing it out.

If you or someone you love is suffering from chronic pain, The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests talking to your doctor about managing pain without drugs through methods such as physical therapy and exercise or cognitive behavioral therapy. These methods can be more effective than drugs and have fewer risks and side effects.

Pain sufferers in shackles

To the pain sufferer, it is a shackle that keeps them from living their life.

This summer RestoraLife is celebrating the many patients they have helped take their life back from chronic pain.

When a new person walks through the door for their initial consultation, the story is pretty similar.  The sentence heard the most is “I am unable to do the things I would like in my life because of my pain.”  Pain can come from many different things.  However, to the sufferer, it is a shackle that keeps them from living their life.

At RestoraLife, the medical team helps patients to discover the root cause of their condition whether it is a bone-on-bone joint, chronic back pain or nerve condition. The medical director then selects a specifically customized plan to use the latest advancements in Regenerative Medicine to help combat the source of the problem instead of masking the symptoms.

Regenerative Medicine is something we are hearing a lot about recently, but what does it mean?

restoralife ceo with patient MarthaRegenerative Medicine, consisting of treatments like STEM CELLS, Concentrated PRP, Therapeutic Laser, connective tissue treatments, and more can help most chronic nerve and pain conditions.

RestoraLife utilizes these treatments in an individualized approach for each patient to provide a non-surgical, restorative treatment option that promotes the body to heal itself, without a long list of medications or painful procedures.

By focusing these treatments at the source of the pain, they have helped thousands of patients with a wide variety of conditions; take their life back from pain.

What makes someone a candidate for these Regenerative pain treatments?

Some examples of the problems walking through the doors are:  A 92 year old female that still has plenty of life left but is unable to walk any distance without pain due to severe osteoarthritis of her right knee.  This keeps her from being able to exercise or comfortably do her physical therapy in order to maintain her health.  Another female commutes from Winter Park for treatment each week because she found herself unable to sit or stand and walk without pain due to previous spinal compression fractures at the age of 62.  A 73 year old man from Viera, who found himself sitting around due to painful knee and ankle joints, which frequent cortisone shots were no longer helping.

The above patients are among the many that are singing the praises of the staff at RestoraLife Regenerative Care.  When talking with people in this office a common theme is how happy they are that the medical team takes the time to understand and address their specific pain.  “They all care.” Mrs. Cruz of Viera, Florida states, “Dr. Leyte, Nicole and the rest of the staff took the time to understand the different issues that were causing the pain throughout my back and lower body and dedicated the time and energy to help fix it.  After several weeks of treatment, I was in the kitchen dancing and cooking again.”

If you are a patient suffering from a nerve or pain condition that conventional medicine has not been able to help. Restoralife has an open door policy and invites you to stop by their office and take a tour and talk to existing patients being treated. If you would like to learn more about how Restoralife can help you with your specific condition, they offer complimentary consultations in their office that was designed to feel more like a spa than a medical office. The treatments are state-of-the-art and medically advanced to help with the most difficult cases, however, the environment they created is about healing and that is something a patient can feel when they first walk in the door. If education and learning is more your style, they also offer weekly seminars at local restaurants to allow patients the opportunity to learn more about the science behind these latest medical advancements in Regenerative Medicine.

Stem Cell Candidates

Stem Cell Treatments may not be right for everyone.

Over the last few years, stem cell treatments for painful conditions have become increasingly popular.  People are seeing outstanding results and reclaiming their life from pain.  Surgeries are being avoided, pain medications are minimized if not eliminated, and ongoing pain management efforts are ceasing.  Sounds great, right?

It is great, for many people and many conditions.  However there are instances where stem cell treatments are not the answer.  Not everyone and every condition can be treated successfully using stem cells.  Despite what some may say, this medically advanced treatment isn’t a miracle worker, and traditional treatments, medications and surgeries are sometimes necessary.

Stem Cell CandidatesStem cell treatments are essentially a concentration of materials delivered to a specific location that is in need of regeneration. The body recognizes the extra healing materials and sends additional resources to the area that assist in the rebuilding process.  This could apply to cartilage, ligament, bone, nerves, hair, etc.   It should be noted that these materials can produce regeneration on their own, however in order for maximum regeneration they need help from the body’s other healing mechanisms.

Blood circulation plays an important role in regeneration.  Our circulatory system is responsible for delivering platelets and other growth factors to the area of the body in need.  A compromised circulatory system can minimize the regeneration potential that stem cells may have.  Energy is also required for healing.  Diet and exercise habits play a role.  A compromised digestive system can stifle our ability to convert food into fuel and further repress healing.  Other medical conditions and medications can also slow or stop the regeneration process.  Tobacco and alcohol use can also have a negative affect on healing.  Any one or more of these factors can undermine an attempt at regeneration and pain relief.

Additionally, the location and severity of the condition play a primary role in determining if stem cells treatments are right for you.  Osteoarthritis (OA) is a good example of this.  Cell-based treatments are very effective when it comes to OA of the knee. However OA treatments for the hips may not respond as well depending on the severity of the condition.  This is also an example of how blood flow can play a part in regeneration.  Knee joints receive  more blood flow than hips and therefore are more productive in regeneration of cartilage.  Hip conditions can still be helped with cell based treatments, however, the patient needs to be seen by a clinician that has experience in understanding when a hip is too far deteriorated for stem cell treatments.

Needless to say, stem cells are not a black and white matter and they are not a stand-alone miracle cure.  The effectiveness of these treatments can be bolstered or muted depending on a number of other factors.  Determining whether or not these treatments are right for you can seem like a daunting task.  Add to this the growing number of “stem cell clinics” opening up across the country, of which the majority are not properly evaluating or projecting candidacy for effective outcomes.  How can a person even know where to start or who to trust?

RestoraLife offers free consultations for this very reason.  They also conduct public seminars weekly to educate people on stem cells and other regenerative treatments.  “A person should feel good about their decision to have these treatments.  They shouldn’t feel pressured and they shouldn’t feel like they are taking a huge chance”, says Nicole Hadjadj, Clinical Director and CEO.  RestoraLife evaluates each patient and condition separately, spending as much time as necessary with a patient to accurately determine candidacy.

Florida Stem Cell ClinicRestoraLife does not recommend services to all consultations for the reasons mentioned above.  “Unfortunately, not everyone’s body possesses a strong healing environment”, continued Hadjadj.  “Many times the hurdles of healing can be bypassed using other modalities like Laser Therapy.  Other times there are simply too many contradicting factors to even recommend a cell-based treatment.”

An example of this is a married couple came in recently for consultation.  The woman suffered from surgical complications and the man was dealing with Fibromyalgia.  “They were an amazing couple that operated as a team as they each lived with their painful conditions.  We wanted to help them so badly but could not recommend our services for them.  There were simply too many factors present that would’ve contradicted the regeneration process.”

Even though RestoraLife could not help them, they were both very understanding and appreciative of the time and care that was taken during consultation process.  They even took the time to write a personal letter to the RestoraLife staff expressing their gratitude and admitting that they would’ve started treatment had it been recommended.  They recognized how easily they could’ve been misled and taken advantage of, but were not.

If you or someone you love is suffering from a chronic pain condition and looking for guidance through the possibilities of regenerative medicine, call RestoraLife today. (321) 610-1848
