The Adult Stem Cell Foundation is a philanthropic (not for profit) organization that will assist un-well people travel to overseas to receive Adult Stem Cell Therapy (ASCT).
The Foundation will also promote a campaign showing how it is possible to prevent or limit the progression of these degenerative diseases to the general public. Degenerative disease is an uncontrolled escalating world problem that if not controlled has the ability to bankrupt our health systems. Very little is being done to control this pandemic in Degenerative Disease.
The purpose of the Foundation is to show that people suffering from a degenerative disease like Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, Diabetes 1 & 2, Stroke, Alzheimer’s, Spinal Cord injuries, Liver diseases, Myocardial infarction, (to name a few) can now receive Adult Stem Cell Therapy that may change their quality of life for the better. That there is now HOPE.
Adult Stem Cell Therapy is still not yet available in Western countries and will not be for many years. Yet, a sole country like Germany has passed an Act enabling private clinics under Government supervision to administer Adult Stem Cell Therapies. Germany has a first class medical system.
The Adult Stem Cell Foundation has also become the Co-Ordination Centre in Australasia for overseas clinics like the XCell-Center in Germany that have demonstrated they abide by the highest medical standards, and have a proven track record with these therapies.
Becoming a Co-ordination Centre allows the organization and advising of patients locally. This streamlines and improves the process. New patients are also able to talk with other people who have had these therapies, prior to making their own decision. This is very reassuring and one of the key reasons for forming the Foundation.
The ultimate purpose of the Adult Stem Cell Foundation is to publicize nationally that Adult Stem Cell Therapies are available at the XCell-Center, and to encourage as many people as possible to take advantage of this. To raise money in the way of donations from benefactors, including private and commercial sponsorships.
To promote a National awareness campaign on how to prevent the onset of degenerative diseases. New stem cell enhancing products (backed by science) are now available that stimulate the bodies natural release of Adult stem cells from the bone marrow into the blood stream. Science now recognizes that this simple process is the key to all renewal processes in the body. To support financially, Adult Stem Cell research here in Australia and NZ by leading Universities and Non Profit organizations. To endorse products proven to assist the proliferation of Adult Stem Cells in the body.
The Foundation’s goal is to have as much impact and awareness in the community with Degenerative Diseases, as other high profile Foundations have done with Breast Cancer like the McGrath Foundation. We would like to open offices in other countries. New Zealand will be next. Tax benefits maybe available to certain entities that donate, please check with your Tax Advisor.
ADULT STEM CELL THERAPY IN SIMPLE TERMS:
Adult stem cells are not to be confused with the controversy surrounding embryonic stem cells . Adult stem cells are very different. At the XCell-Center the adult stem cells are taken from the bone marrow in the patient’s hipbone. After collection the stem cells are isolated from the bone marrow and tested in a certified laboratory.
The sample undergoes several quality assurance tests including a number of viral markers at the XCell-Center laboratories. In addition, the number of stem cells and their vitality are tested. This ensures the patient receives only the highest quality stem cells for their treatment. The stem cells are injected back into the patient’s damaged tissue in 3 days time. As they are the patient’s own stem cells , rejection does not occur. This is the opposite with embryonic stem cells (from another person) where rejection is a definite possibility.
The injecting of millions of extra adult stem cells directly back into the patients damaged tissue enables the stem cells to work their magic where they are needed most. That is how simple Adult Stem Cell Therapy is! It is Day Surgery in most cases.
Published data by the XCell-Center show varying success rates of 60% to 80%, dependant on the disease treated and the patients condition. Why it does not work in a percentage of the cases is still unknown. Hopefully on going research will resolve this in the future. There are literally many thousands of Australians who have a degenerative disease (that has no immediate cure) that may benefit from Adult Stem Cell Therapy at the XCell-Center.
STEM CELLS & TUMOR RISK : ” In accordance with the latest scientific findings, the therapy performed at the XCell-Center does not cause tumors because the stem cells are not allowed to multiply for any length of time outside the body. They are transplanted back into the body immediately after purification. The XCell-Center doesn't treat patients with tumors.”
PREVENTION OUR MAIN AIM
Hence we would like you if you have a degenerative disease to contact the Adult Stem Cell Foundation for a confidential chat OR consider becoming an Honorary Member and learn with our training, how to spread this important message to the wider community, including, how to prevent the onset of these terrible degenerative diseases. This is an opportunity on how you can help others and also help yourself.
A local panel of Advisors from the medical and scientific communities has been appointed to advise the Foundation on all aspects of running a successful organisation.
Learn the part adult stem cells play as the “Repair Kit” for damaged tissue and organs anywhere in the body. Adult Stem Cells are really your best friend. You will learn the importance of keeping your own stem cells in a healthy condition, and how to do that. You will also learn how to increase the number of stem cells you have available, and why that is so important to a long and healthy life. As one ages you release less stem cells into the blood stream and that is exactly the opposite of what you want to happen. We will show you how to reverse that trend.
The number of stem cells circulating in the bloodstream is one of the greatest indicators of human health. As stem cells possess the ability to become virtually any kind of cell in the body. Supporting stem cell release can potentially enhance the health of every organ and tissue of the body, offering a golden opportunity for ongoing health and wellness for virtually everyone.

We thank you for your interest in this worthy and exciting cause, and we look forward to discussing with you the possibilities of your involvement with the Foundation.
We need an army of many to realize our dreams of turning the tide against degenerative diseases.
Your help will be sincerely appreciated.
Thank you. Frank McNabb
