We arrived at the clinic at 9am, having filled out extensive paper work that acknowledges the process as experimental and specifies there are no guaranteed results.

We then met with Elliot who reviewed our blood work and x-rays (which he’d already seen). If if our blood panels hadn’t already existed we would have had to get them done ahead of time (with his prescription).

After discussing the health issues that were indicated by our blood work (nothing major), he reinforced what he’d originally told us on the phone about Nitric Oxide being critical to health and the anti-aging process—and recommended one brand only NEO40 which is available on Amazon. We’d been taking it for months after talking with him back in August.

If you’re not familiar with Nitric Oxide and what all it can do for you—including helping to keep your telomeres longer which is a significant part of anti-aging be sure to look them up online since this blog isn’t about Nitric Oxide or telomeres!

Jim went in first to have his own stem cells removed through the fatty tissue in his upper hip. And once they were finished with his stem cell removal they took me in for the exact same procedure.

It’s a pretty simple process. They had us lie face down on a well padded table, merely pulling our trousers/pants and underpants down enough to get to the desired location which was about 4-5 inches below the waist on the left side about mid-way between the center of the back and the actual side of the hip.

Then with two assistants present, and the television news on pretty loud as a distraction, Elliot announced that the first procedure would be to inject local anesthesia and “you might feel a bit of a pull or a little pain.” Yes, that’s correct.

Then he began the removal of fat from the area, nudging and prodding the tissues to give themselves up to his collection tube. Within minutes it was done and the assistants put on a band-aid covered by a thick gauze pad taped down tight, and then a thick body compress that wrapped entirely around our middle body area. But no stitches or staples were used.

There was no discomfort to speak of at all!

Then we went into another room to get the intravenous infusions.

And since this is getting a bit long, I’ll leave it here and pick it up in the next installment.
