Over past few years, stem cells have been getting a lot of attention. What makes them so interesting is their ability to stimulate production of many types of healthy cells. That means that a single stem cell can turn itself into brain cells, liver cells, skin cells, pancreas cells, and so on.
In February of 2003, an article about stem cells was published in Journal of American Medical Association (JAMA). A team of researchers at Johns Hopkins Medical Center reported, for first time, that undifferentiated donor stem cells were able to cross blood brain barrier and morph themselves into neuronal cells.
This was an especially important finding because, of all cells in body, neuron cells are most advanced and complicated. This is significant because it means that if stem cells can morph themselves into brain neurons, then, chances are they can transform themselves into other types of cells too.
In a separate but related area of science, there is a growing body of evidence that a specialized area of nutrition called “glyconutrition” is very likely responsible for causing body to manufacture its own stem cells from its own bone marrow. This research is being overseen by Dr. Reg McDaniel M.D. at Fischer Institute.
Until JAMA article came out, Dr. McDaniel's team were in quite a quandary as to how people with varying neurological disorders such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, Children's Cerebral Palsy, Down's Syndrome, and Autism, were all experiencing increases in brain function when glyconutrients and other micronutrients were added to their diets.
After initial discovery that stem cells stimulated growth of neuron cells, researchers wanted to know if these newly created neuron cells worked correctly. To do this, they turned their attention to children in comas. One was a boy who had been in a coma for three years. Glyconutrients were added to his feeding tube and within five days his doctor started seeing changes in his brain function.
All this is became even more noteworthy when it was discovered that this wasn't an isolated case. Other cases have been reported in which children have been awakened from long-term comas after receiving glyconutritional supplements introduced through feeding tubes.
