Stem cell treatment in Germany’s Villa Medica

DAY ONE (Thursday): It was about 6 a.m. when Cathay Pacific (CX) Flight 0289 docked at the Frankfurt International Airport Bay no. 2.

Beth was nursing some stiff neck and the usual neck pains when we unbuckled to disembark. It was an 11-hour flight from Hong Kong and like all previous foreign trips, Beth never had some good sleep, despite the comfortable and totally reclinable CX modernized seats in the Business Class section.

From the glass windows at the tube, we saw the heavy fog outside. After gathering our luggage, Villa Medica (VM) representative (named Sammy, an Iranian) was flashing the VM sign at the arrival gate for us. We were the only passengers in his van for the 140-kilometer trip to Edenkoben. Sammy said that there were about eight guests from Thailand and Vietnam in our batch but they were arriving later in the day. (Times Editors note: Edenkoben is a town in the Sdliche Weinstrasse district of Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany.)

Sammy was a good source of information. I was curious and I could not wait for the briefing by the VM doctors. He said that the fresh cells are taken from Black Mountain sheeps, specially raised in a farm and transported to VM laboratories for tests and procedures before they are slaughtered while 18-week pregnant. The mother sheep is slaughtered on the day of the injection on the client (they dont use the word patients). The unborn fetus, about 18 weeks old, is still alive when the fresh cells are taken and within two hours, the harvested cells must be injected on the guest. He gave a few prominent names in the Philippines who have come to VM. And many kept coming back, he said.

We arrived at Villa Medica after an hour-and-a-half of travel, passing grape vineyards that have started to wilt and darken with the onset of winter. Villa Medica looked like a mansion house in the middle of the forest.

When we disembarked, we were met by the VM head staff named Joyce, a Malaysian, who turned out to be Sammys wife.

Before being conducted to our room upstairs, we were told: Please proceed to Praxis [name of the room] on the ground floor for the first infusion.

We entered a room with about 12 reclined seats facing a drapeless window looking out into the forests. The first infusion meant being linked to an oxygen aerator attached to your nose and getting an intravenous flow of some pinkish-looking fluid containing concentrates of Vitamin C, B12 and Glutathione combined. The procedure was over in about 45 minutes.

When I asked the German lady nurse what the infusion was for, she explained that it was to loosen up the body in preparation for the next days fresh cell injections.
