Dear GRG Member,
For TODAY ONLY a fine book on Regenerative Medicine is available at NO COST.
Author is Theodore Harrison, MD. His wife, Louise Andrew, MD, JD alerted me
to the book.
It was written for the lay public and created with patients in mind. The
book introduces the reader to regenerative medicine: a multidisciplinary
specialty that uses the body’s own repair mechanisms to functionally heal
previously irreparable tissues or organs. The author first explains the
mechanisms of regenerative therapy and the use of modalities like stem cells
and platelet-rich plasma. He then goes on to give descriptions of
regenerative techniques already in clinical use today, such as the Vampire
Facelift, snoreplasty, the O-Shot and and prolotherapy.. He devotes another
section of the book to the many therapies that are still in testing, but
about to break out into the mainstream. These include cures for COPD, sickle
cell disease, congestive heart failure and many more diseases for which
today’s medical paradigm can offer only temporary or palliative measures.
The book ends with a section on the problems and challenges confronting
regenerative medicine and the huge potential for new cures.
This is an easily accessible book written for the lay person with a basic
understanding of science. At 29,000 words it is not a lengthy treatise. Dr.
Harrison explains all concepts clearly and includes a glossary and more than
60 full-color illustrations. It is indexed for quick reference.
