[callout1]Hyperbaric Stem Cell Definitions[/callout1]
Adult stem cells
Undifferentiated cells (these include the various types of multipotent and unipotent stem cells), found in a differentiated tissue of the developed, adult organism. These cells can renew themselves and differentiate (with certain limitations) to give rise to all the specialized cell types of the tissue they derive from. Adult stem cells can be found in bone marrow or in the umbilical cord blood of newborn babies.
Bone marrow stem cell
Multipotent stem cells from bone marrow; types include haematopoietic stem cells and mesenchymal stem cells.
CD34 refers to a special molecular structure that can be found on the surface of haematopoietic stem cells. With the help of this marker, the haematopoietic precursors can be differentiated from other precursors. CD is the abbreviation of “cluster of differentiation”.
See: Regenerative medicine
To generate identical copies of a molecule, cell, or organism.
Cord blood stem cells
The vessels of the umbilical cord during and shortly after delivery contain stem cells. These stem cells are in the blood at the time of delivery, because they move from the liver, where blood formation takes place during foetal life, to the bone marrow, where blood is made after birth. Umbilical cord stem cells are similar to the stem cells that reside in bone marrow, and can be used for the treatment of leukaemia and other diseases of the blood.
The process whereby an undifferentiated embryonic cell acquires the features of a specialized cell such as the liver, brain, heart or muscle cell.
The product of a fertilized egg. This term extends from the time of fertilization (zygote) until it becomes a foetus, which in the human is approximately eight weeks later.
Haematopoietic stem cell
Precursor of mature blood cells
Latin for “in glass”. Names processes that take place or are done in a laboratory dish, test tubes or other artificial environments.
Mesenchymal stem cells
Also known as bone marrow stromal cells. Mixed group of cells from the non-blood-forming section of bone marrow. Mesenchymal stem cells are capable of growth and differentiation into a number of different cell types.
The ability of an individual stem cell to develop into only a limited range of cell types. In general, adult stem cells are multipotent. Also see pluripotent and totipotent.
The ability of stem cells from a particular type of tissue to give rise to cell types of another type of tissue.
The ability of an individual stem cell to develop into numerous other types of cells. In general, embryonic stem cells are pluripotent.
A treatment in which stem cells are induced to differentiate into the specific cell type required to repair damaged or destroyed cell populations.
Cells with the ability to divide for indefinite periods in culture and to give rise to specialized cells.
Tissue Engineering refers to the production of tissue constructions from endogenous somatic cells. Stem cells or other differentiated somatic cells are used for the construction. In this way, tissue (such as skin or cartilage) can be grown outside the body and then transplanted to the patient.
Type of cell that can form an entire organism. The zygote (a fertilized egg) and the first four cells produced by its cleavage are totipotent.
Usually applied to cells in adult organisms that are capable of differentiating along only one lineage.

Hyperbaric Stem Cell Definitions
I have relied on the experts that are opening Hyperbaric Centers of Florida to provide treatment for my Lyme Disease for the past five years.
Our Experience at your facility was much more than we expected! Everyone was very professional and friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and patient. Regan, we believed, truly enjoyed her time in the chamber. Not one time did she complain about her visits and in fact, she was very eager to go!
Since her therapy has stopped, our family and friends agree that they see development in Regan. She tends to make more eye contact with strangers, asks intriguing questions for clarification and initiates spontaneous conversation with others. We are very pleased with everything and look forward to future hyperbaric opportunities.
We miss all of you there, too. Maybe we'll get back to you some day. You made us feel very comfortable. I feel a lot better already, and can't wait to get back bowling. I start today. Wish me luck. Regards to all and GOD BLESS YOU.

It is just a month since the end of our 20-day session you afforded us. Hilda’s short-term memory is much improved. Also, her skin tone and color is better. Old age brings on numerous bruises and we find them healing more quickly. Hilda’s energy level is also up a few points. I had no specific complaints, so I was there to assist Hilda and be a companion in the chamber. I found the overall experience to be a pleasant one. It was also a pleasure to meet persons who are having positive results from the sessions.

Joseph (my son) is showing more eye contact, more affection and more conversation. His OCD has lessened (repetitions are not as constant). It has not been 3 weeks yet, but I do see improvement. Thanks to Stephanie, Miss Carol, Fred and Barbara for taking care of him. He still remembers the M & M rewards.

The Guerra family is very thankful for your services at Hyperbaric Centers of Florida. Our experience in your facility was very pleasant, clean and home warming. The treatment has been a blessing to our son Kenny. He has been recovering and progressing amazingly, we’ve noticed many changes after his treatments. His personality, thinking, reasoning are coming back like Kenny was always. He is more independent, he’s cooking his own meals, playing video games, taking care of his image, he saves, showers on his own and amazingly all his acne has disappeared. Wish you our best wishes.

We really enjoyed meeting you and getting to know you over the last 3 weeks. Your sweet demeanor and hospitality made us feel right at home. We cannot tell you how important that was for us while we were away from home, a bit anxious, and doing treatments. We cannot thank you enough, but want to give you a token of our appreciation.

Everyone at the center was kind, professional and supportive during duration of treatments. Richard has better energy levels, better at performing work tasks, and reading with better comprehension. He seems to have improved communication skills as well as helping him with his friendships. Thank you again for your kindness and support.

Larry and I are feeling fine…. But especially Larry! He is able to hop up in the back of his pickup truck in one leap! Last year before treatment he could hardly make it with at stool! We are leaving soon, but plan on a few more Hyperbaric Oxygen Therpay in the fall to keep the good health momentum going forward.

My experience in the Hyperbaric Centers of Florida was an easy and pleasant time. Very friendly professional staff. The office hours were great, because it was really conducive for my schedule.
Cherie Alvis – Anti-Aging Treatment
Since we have left there he (our son) has been asking to go potty a little more often. Not yet really potty trained, it is a step in the right direction. He has been walking around the house saying "Monkey Boy" (his nickname we gave him). He also happens to repeat something Mommy said! lol. I had stepped on a pricker for the grass, and I happened to say "son of a b**ch" and he repeated it! I couldn’t help but laugh. He hasn’t said it since so that’s a plus. Other than that, the teachers have said that he is starting to focus more and it is easier to get him back to focus when coming out of a meltdown. He seems to reply sometimes with the right answer when asked a question like "Do you got it?" he replies; "I got it", as he walks away. He has been doing really good. I am in hopes to see more improvements and also would like to come back when we can.
DISTOTELL FAMILY – Autism Treatment
Hi Stephanie, We appreciate the kindness, care and support that you all showed to us during Christian's treatments. Everyone was so nice and very helpful to our family. We are pleased that Christian is now able to communicate with speech, everyday he is getting more clear and confident. At night when it's time to go to bed he feels really great about practicing saying all of his new words for hours. Christian can say; " I am happy, I feel good."
His face looks totally different now that he knows he can get his words out, he is getting better at speaking everyday. One of his teacher's today was saying how she just let him talk to her all day.
This teacher has just recently returned to school, she had been out since summer due to having a surgery. Mrs. Lisa told us today that she is amazed to see the difference in Christian and to now be able to know what he is thinking. We are all excited to hear something new from him everyday.
I got another good report from school today, this time from Christian's main teacher. She wanted to tell me herself that he talked to her all day. That was very exciting for her! I could see how surprised she was because he was still talking as she was talking to me.
Tammy – Autism Treatment
Last Fall 2013 as a paraplegic, I had the privilege of experiencing and witnessing myself how this treatment can save and improve lives. This great news in medicine must be shared and allowed to grow. The approach is somewhat basic in nature, but with technological inventions it becomes a common tool to one day be utilized for everyone. This therapy is definitely part of our future preventative and post healthcare. The staff are another proof of this with alert professionals providing a comfortable atmosphere and an enormous caring spirit. They really took time to explain how it works. I think they really like that part. The story for me is, after an exhausting failure with old western medicine techniques, my pressure sore injury was not improving. So after web surfing a bit I came across Hyperbaric Centers of Florida. My familiarity was limited to how it helped divers who had been injured or just need to decompress. The first 10 visits were really informative and eye opening. To say detoxifying is part of the process is a polite way of saying your going to be surprised that was in you. But that’s great! You’re on your way to a healthier you! The next 10 days started showing better circulation in my legs, more energy, sleeping better and improvement in general all around. My last 10 days, making it 30 straight treatments, I wanted to go to see if I could benefit anymore. I believe it did. And whenever I need a 10-day cleansing and revitalizer, you can bet I’m going to Hyperbaric Centers of Florida!

Six years ago I was given four months to live as a result of liver failure. The owners of Hyperbaric Centers of Florida provided treatment for me at their center in Texas and I was able to begin to grow new liver tissue. My primary care physician can not believe that his four month prediction was incorrect. I do require "booster therapy" which involves a few treatments every 6 to 8 months, but my health is excellent and I look forward to a long and productive life.
