By Dr. med. Bartholomäus Klotz
Nowadays our world is undergoing a complete change in many spheres. In the world of medicine is a fundamental change from chemical medicine to biological therapy over the last hundred years. Biological therapies are continually gaining in importance. We are aware that chemical preparations can help quickly in many acute illnesses, but we are coming more and more to the realisation that generally only the symptoms are being cured. Moreover, there is also widespread opinion that a vast majority of these chemical preparations endanger our health, especially if they are used over a longer period. Now we have reached the all too well known problem of dangerous side-effects from chemical preparations. In no way do we want to belittle the great successes in traditional medicine. We have a lot to thank it for; surgeons perform outstanding work, infectious diseases are, by and large, kept under control by antibiotics, and epidemics have been eradicated. However, a certain unease remains. Millions of people experience the curses as well as the blessings of pharmaco-medicine.
The result is a suppression of the illness until it emerges as chronic. Thus, today, chronic illnesses are expanding as never before. They are now the great epidemics of the 21st century. Heart conditions, circulatory disturbances, cancer and rheumatism, to name only a few, cannot be combated in spite of high expenditure. In the modern countries cardiac infarction and strokes are the first cause of death (followed by cancer). In this great medical confrontation which I choose to call “the great fundamental change” in medicine – natural therapies are increasingly gaining ground.
In countries where they have been able to develop freely, biological therapies have already left their initially difficult years behind them. It is true that the scales are still tipped in favour of chemical therapies for example in Germany 70 to 30, but biological therapies are gaining recognition in inverse proportion to their diminishing importance. Thus the future of medicine will quite certainly not be an “either or” but more a “not only but also”.
A meaningful prejudice-free combination of chemical and biological therapies must be achieved. For example: it would be a grave mistake not to use antibiotics for a severe case of pneumonia. However, there are many serious illnesses for which we can achieve the same, if not better, results by using a biological therapy, and what is more, this is achieved without any much-feared side-effects. Here I should like to refer, for example, to the great successes of cell therapy in chronic degenerative joint diseases.
Dr. J. Miller, a veterinary surgeon played an important part in the evolution of cell therapy. Based on fundamental research he improved the Niehans approach and development biologically high-quality cell peptides. As a result these cell peptides manufactured in Germany continued to spread all over the world. Today in Germany alone, there are more than 5000 doctors, who are specialised in cell peptide therapy. A fact which speaks for the recognition and medical achievement of this natural therapy in Europe. In the last thirty years about 15 million people have undergone cell therapy treatment. The use of cell therapy has spread increasingly over the last 80 years and is accepted more and more by health authorities around the world.
Health for everyone is only possible if unconventional therapies are also included in the present health system.
Let me now move on to some important points in cell therapy.
The first Question: What is cell therapy?
In this biological therapy active ingredients are isolated from animal tissue or cells. These ingredients are also called peptides. These cell peptides are then transmitted to humans to effect a cure. At the same time strict controls are carried out so that you can be absolutely sure that the peptides are completely sterile and free of viruses.
Directly after the injection the cell peptides are transported to the corresponding human organ, for example liver peptides to the liver, heart peptides to the heart. The transport of the peptides to the corresponding organ has been proved beyond any doubt with the use of radioactive cells.
Mesenchym: (connective tissue) What is extraordinary about the cells is that when it is ingested it migrates to the area of greatest injury in the body. Thus “repairs” on damaged cells or organs take place. We all know that the human body has a huge number of reserve cells which are not immediately ready to function. If these are presented with a high dosage of peptides, then they adopt the properties of the new material and then the cells are ready to function.
The second question: What can cell therapy achieve? Cell therapy can make substantial contributions to the revitalisation of the body, its organs and its functions. How important revitalisation is for all of us becomes apparent if we look at a nation’s state of health as a whole. It is not very encouraging: environmental damage, stress and strain, the wrong diet as well as the misuse of nicotine, alcohol and medication have a detrimental effect on the human body’s potential to keep itself healthy und vital. As a result of this once highly praised civilisation we are now faced with grave negative developments in our health; we now speak of so-called “civilisation diseases”, the common plagues of the 21st century.
90 % of all people have problems with their health. Hardly anyone feels truly healthy. One person in five says he is too fat. Circulatory disturbances, high or low blood pressure, digestive problems and insomnia trouble the others. However, not only organic diseases, but also the so-called “functional disturbances” make life difficult for people and 50 – 70 % of patients are troubled by them. Functional syndromes are illnesses which are not always clearly diagnosable with modern methods. Heart and vascular disturbances, rheumatic diseases, diseases of the lungs and bronchi, disturbances of the metabolism are the modern scourges of humanity. In all these cases cell therapy is able to exert its regenerating effect. Regeneration means restoration of the healthy structure and function of a cell, the cell itself is repaired. However, regeneration also means that the original cell and organ performance is regained thanks to cell activation. Revitalisation means the restoration of former mobility, vitality and regeneration of organs as they once were in one’s youth. Revitalisation activates the body’s own powers….
When to start cell therapy?
….This perceptible – an sometimes even visible – running dry of our reservoirs starts on an average as early as the age of 35 in women and in men from the age of 45. The age that it starts, however, may even be earlier, due to a number of factors. For instance: mental and physical strain, serious illnesses and operations, deep grief or sorrow, or excessive environmental stress and the individual genetic disposition. Then the question presents itself whether, in the face of the facts, there is not a way to combat such ageing processes. This could possibly be done effectively by using biological means, thereby reducing the risk of being ill and infirm quite decisively. It is true that many attempts have been made to combat these processes effectively with the aid of medication. These attempts however have repeatedly failed – or had no lasting success.
The reason for this is just as simple as it is disastrous: In the long run there seems to be little point in stimulating the circulation of an organ if it is no longer able to profit from this cell-wise due to a biological breakdown in its cells. The solution to the problem of growing old and becoming susceptible to illnesses seems to lie in the cellular sphere and that is the decisive starting-point for the most fundamental natural therapy of today, cell therapy.
We have cell peptides from the following organs: liver, heart, lungs, stomach, intestines, kidney, testicles and prostate gland or ovaries, connective tissue (from the umbilical cord), cartilage, vertebrae and disc as well as from different parts of the brain.
With the injection of cell peptides, the body’s partially damaged cells will be repaired. In addition, the body’s reserve cells will be completed and enable the body to repair other damaged organs. The completely destroyed high developed cells… …..after a stroke for example are destroyed irreversibly. So the only chance to get success is to repair damaged cells and helping the body by creating new ones. With the help of clinical and laboratory tests it has been shown that this repair and restructuring process rally does take place in our body.
For which illnesses does cell therapy promise success?
It can be applied for chronic degenerative illnesses of the inner organs, such as heart, liver, lungs, kidneys, and the central nervous system. In addition, osteoarthritis, peripheral arterial and venous circulatory disturbances and acute hepatitis can be included. Fatty degeneration of the liver, chronic virus hepatitis and early cirrhoses are also suited for cell therapy. It has also good results when used to treat arteriosclerosis. Mental degeneration which occurs in cerebral sclerosis and cerebral atrophy recedes after treatment with cell therapy; loss of memory decreases, and the mind becomes clearer.
Even after a stroke good results can be achieved with cell therapy. In the orthopaedic sphere osteochondrosis, osteoporosis and rheumatoid arthritis are important indications for cell therapy.
Can a patient with cancer be helped by cell therapy?
The answer to this is yes, but depending on each individual case. The body’s immune system is getting better by using especially peptides from the thymus gland (compare with the study from the George Washington University of Medicine and Health Sciences).
For several years now we have been isolating as well peptides from umbilical cord cells which strengthen as well the body’s own defence system quite considerably. The strengthening of the defence system is possibly our last and, at the same time, our greatest chance in the fight against cancer which is costing us billions.
- Cell therapy can help mainly in many chronic diseases.
- Cell therapy strengthen the body’s defence system and thus helps a great deal in cancer (after chemotherapy).
- Doctors have to reject the one-sided chemical therapeutic approach to consider biological issues.
(In Europe the number of doctors who are now specialising in this approach is enormous.)
- The patient should urge his doctor to use a biological, and thus, a non-toxic therapy.
(This is an important task for patients’ organisations.)
Cell therapy is termed the biological therapy of the future by its supporters.
In the last 50 years over 15 million patients have undergone such treatment. The supporters of organ therapy are increasing yearly since its success speaks for itself.
What are biological therapies?
These are therapies that endeavour to activate the body’s natural healing powers.
Natural elements are used and, at the same time, any harm to the organism is avoided as far as possible. From the diagnostic and therapeutic points of view the patient is to be seen as a whole person in his entirety, biological treatment, therefore, means activation of the body’s natural healing powers. Chemical treatment means the use of surrogates. With synthetic chemical preparations the doctor generally only treats symptoms with, for example, penicillin or replaces the body’s own healing powers for example with hormones, cortisone etc. Biological therapies try to treat the causes and not just the symptoms of the illness. Therefore, biological medicine is causal therapy and, as such, it renounces the use of chemicals and their often harmful substances.
Cell therapy is one of the greatest biological therapies.
The modern age of cell therapy was initiated over more than 80 years ago by Professor Paul Niehans, a swiss surgeon.
He deserves recognition for being the first person to use this method of treatment. Professor Niehans saved the life of a gravely ill patient by injecting the cells of an animals organ. From this initial cell therapy to the highly-developed cell peptide therapy of today – there lay a long, arduous scientific road. The further development was made by the Swedish Professor Dr. Sandberg in the 1970’s.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Who of you here would not like to be alive in the year 2050? But it is not only a question of being alive then, but perhaps also of being vital and healthy. For health alone is not everything, but without it, nothing is worth anything. Grasp this opportunity to use an established biological therapy whose founder formulated its aims so aptly as follows: «Cell therapy» means: More years in your life and more vitality in your evening of life.
The administering of cell therapy
The administering of cell therapy is quite simple.
After a preliminary check-up, the doctor decides what particular combination of cells is necessary. The cell peptides are given by injections. The injections of about 10 cell peptide preparations take about 15 minutes and are not at all painful. After treatment Sauna baths and all types of heat treatment should be stopped for about 4 weeks.
Other biological therapies such as the taking of vitamins and minerals are especially recommended after cell therapy as well as the administering of oxygen in all forms. Strongly smoking and the consumption of large amounts of alcohol are to be avoided initially after cell therapy treatments.
Many famous personalities used the cell therapy
Here are a few names of people who you all know: Gloria Swanson, Somerset Maugham, Charlie Chaplin, President Dwight D. Eisenhower, Konrad Adenauer, Pope Pius XII, the Duke of Windsor, Joan Crawford, Joseph Kennedy sen. and many others of equal fame.
All of them have been treated with cell therapy. What was once only a therapy for a handful of well-to-do-people is now within the reach of everyone. In the last 30 years a total of over 15 million people have undergone cell therapy treatment.
How cell therapy can change your life?
Power cells and cardiovascular problems, stroke, heart attack etc. Even so the cell therapy is only successful by treating each patient absolutely individual, there are a lot of different studies being made.
In “The Ärzte Zeitung” Nr.216,26./27.11-2004, a german newspaper, page 4” was a report about US-scientists tests by animals (Dallas) finding out, that the Thymosin-beta 4 molecule is helping by starting of repair mechanism on the heart after a cardiac attack.
Other scientist found out that the thymus peptides are improving the blood circulation, even the microcirculation (in the brain and in the fingers as well). The blood is a little bit more liquid (Antihrombin-III-is more produced under this therapy).
Cardiac and circulatory disorders: In the first place cell therapy can be used to treat diminishing cardiac muscle power, a weak cardiac muscle can even be strengthened so that the dosage of heart medication can be reduced or even completely stopped.
Amazing improvements have been achieved in treating extremely common circulatory deficiencies of the coronary blood vessels accompanied by the symptoms of “angina pectoris” which is an illness followed after arteriosclerosis.
These improvements also lead to the complete disappearance of troublesome heart pains.
Cell therapy is further to be recommended for the treatment for hypertonia and hypotension with all their side-effects. The treatment of hypertonia with a kidney preparation is particularly promising as blood pressure regulation can then be directly influenced. When hypotension is accompanied by annoying migraine attacks, cell therapy achieves good results. Sometimes one treatment alone brings complete relief.
Cell therapy can also be used effectively in the period after a heart attack, treated patients recover very quickly and their improved condition lasts a long time. However, it should be noted that the administration of cell therapy should be delayed until at least 5 months after the heart attack. Anti-coagulant treatment is not a counter-indication for the administering of cell therapy.
After “OTA Report: Pharmacologic and Biologic Treatment” positive results following cellular treatment have been claimed for a wide variety of genetic, neurologic, and multifactorial conditions, including Down Syndrome, Klinefelter’s syndrome, Alzheimer disease, Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, multiple sclerosis, lupus, arthritis, muscular dystrophy, and infertility.

How is »cell therapy» different than »stem cell therapy« ?
In “Focus, 10.04.2005“ was an Overview about stem cells and gene therapy: 1145 Gene therapy studies with stem cells were made but either in Europe nor in the USA was a therapy registered because the risk of these treatments are still higher than the profits. Van den Bos C. and other published 1997 ,that human mesenchymal stem cells produces two potent growth factors for human tissues.
But who will spend his own stem cells to a patient ? With the power cells, we have over 80 years of experience and with the modern power cells I have in the last ten years not even seen one complication.
Stem cells and gene therapy will be in the future getting very important but for the next 10 years at least this will be experimental and dangerous.
How does cell therapy work?
Each person has an exact number of healthy cells in each of their organs. Unfortunately, this number is reduced as we age. It is also reduced as our body fights various diseases and has to cope with environmental stresses and so on. In some organs, such as the brain (with high developed neurological cells), the body is not capable of exchanging dead cells for new, healthy ones. Fortunately, the human body has a large number of so-called “reserve cells”. These cells are biologically incomplete. The body does not have the ability to complete these reserve cells on its own and make them ready to function. Our organism mostly cannot restore the damaged cells of individual organs within a “biological repair” system on its own either. It is exactly at this critical point for our organism that cell therapy with its high biological effectiveness is employed.
Stem cells (changed by gene therapy) are changing the body, the immune system for ever. The effects are not able to be turned back. With our biological peptides we only give the cells “spare parts”, helping them to repair themselves.
