That comes with getting old”is what society and the medical communities are telling us. Sit-ting in a prominent orthopedic surgeon’s office in 2012, I heard those same words. “Your knees are worn out. You’re getting old, and I recommend knee replacement surgery.”
“Let me think about it,” was my response. For the next five years, I wore braces and sucked it up. Forty years of racquetball had taken its toll on my knees. I found myself with the baby boomers’ scourge: a severely degenerated knee and facing knee replacement surgery. Eighty-five million baby boomers have lived, and 64,000,000 are alive today. What we all have in common is that we are rapidly aging. Suffering from chronic degenerative diseases is our fate. Many have pain, no energy, do not feel well, cannot sleep through the night, and have very inactive lifestyles. We have some-how accepted that diabetes, arthritis, COPD, heart disease, obesity, and joint replacements are inevitable. Pretty sad state. I will come back to my knee replacement story later.
Just a bit of history so you can understand where I’m coming from. I graduated from Lubbock Christian University and Harding University with a degree in education and a Master’s Degree in Educational Administration respectfully. My first teaching job was a junior high school basketball and football coach and then a high school coach and teacher in Homerville, Georgia. I coached the varsity men’s basketball team in a small school in Arkansas and later became afifth-grade teacher in Little Rock, Arkansas.

My next career move was to Oklahoma, where I became a Christian school superintendent. When my family out-grew my income, I decided to change my career and moved to Kansas City, where after four years, I graduated from Cleve-land Chiropractic College with aDoctor of Chiropractic degree. We then located in North Richland Hills, Texas, where I opened my first practice. I have been on the same street for 36 years and have cared for over 22,000 patients.
I made the conscious decision 20 years ago to periodically examine my career and reflect on how I treat patients. After 16 years of providing chiropractic care, I found myself asking, “What can I do to serve my patients better?” Self-evaluation led me down the path of discovery to where I am now: the CEO of a multidisciplinary I made the conscious decision 20 years ago to periodically examine my career and reflect on how I treat patients. After 16 years of providing chiropractic care, I found myself asking, “What can I do to serve my patients better?” Self-evaluation led me down the path of discovery to where I am now: the CEO of a multidisciplinary practice that provides unique medical and chiropractic services, all of which are regenerative in nature. The keystone of our philosophy of care is regenerative cellular therapy. I first learned about cellular therapy, often referred to as stem cell therapy, when I heard about a secret meeting of the extraordinarily rich and famous. Let me share the story with you.
A few years ago, wealthy A-list celebrities, billionaires, and leading antiaging scientists gathered at the home of a well-known billionaire in Southern California for a by-invitation-only three- day event. These individuals were seeking the answer to reversing the aging process. The wealthy paid $100,000 to learn about successful youthful living and how to de-age the cells of the human body. This profound meeting addressed the “Secret of Opting Out of Old Age,” and the subject matter focused on breakthrough scientific discoveries that reverse the aging process within the human body. Revealed in those three days was “top secret,” and only the rich and famous could afford it. After the meeting was adjourned, each attendee left with the knowledge of how to reverse the aging process.
The results of that meeting revealed the changing world of medicine as we know it. The scientists explained that years, even decades of aging, can now be reversed. Injuries once thought to be crippling could now be healed. Even more astonishing, growing younger biologically was within their grasp. Staying youthful, sharp, and energized for decades longer is more probable than ever thought possible.
Take, for example, a legendary NFL quarterback who goes from “washed-up” at the age of 36 to having a record-setting MVP season just one year later at 37. How about an aging NBA superstar who tried stem cell therapy? After injuring his knee, he thought his career was over. Then he decided to try stem cell therapy. His results: He played three more years at the highest level, and today is one of the NBA’s all-time scoring leaders. Both refused to accept physical limitations and sought cellular therapy to extend their careers and rejuvenate their aging, broken bodies. Their dilemma, my dilemma, and your dilemma become how to slow down and reverse the aging process. As we age, can we cheat death? Can we stop father time? Surely there is a way to live longer, be more active, and have pain-free lives. If so, the answer lies in super-charging our natural repair processes.
