We were recently in Germany to visit Villa Medica, a leading regenerative medicine clinic established in the town of Edenkoben, and with over 50 years of niche medical experience.
Upon arrival, we were met by a clinic staff and swept off in a gorgeous BMW limo for an hour-and-a-half drive passing through the picturesque German countryside.
On our first day, we observed how Villa Medica specializes in preventive and regenerative medicine using a holistic approach. The main goal is to ensure the delivery of world-class treatment that exceeds the expectations of patients. It is one of the few clinics in the world which is approved and licensed by the German government and health authority.
This was part of the German trip we took along with our besties Anton San Diego, Mons Romulo, and Tessa Prieto-Valdes.
“The world knows what cell therapy is all about now, since it made its significant impact on the medical field in 1931 as an effective rejuvenation treatment for specific conditions. Villa Medica has been a center for cell therapy, using the original Niehans’ Fresh Cell Therapy method for over three generations,” Joyce Lee, Villa Medica’s director of guest relations, explained to us upon our arrival.
The Villa Medica experience begins even before one’s arrival. Based on one’s individual diagnostic profile, the patient will benefit from the personalized care and consulted therapies. This will be conducted under the direct supervision of Villa Medica’s experienced medical team.
The clinic’s team of doctors responsible for all medical issues were chief of medicine and medical director Geoffrey Hürtgen, Dr. Andre Morato, Dr. Ingeborg Ewen and Dr. Ann-Marie Meissner.
We tried Villa Medica’s infusion therapies better known as Myer’s Cocktail. This is a nutrient mixture applied intravenously containing different vitamins, electrolytes and minerals. Indications for this kind of treatment include chronic fatigue syndrome, fibromyalgia, hives of unknown origin and the like.
Chelation therapy is also offered. Chelating agents like DMSA remove heavy metals (lead, arsenic, iron, plutonium, uranium or mercury) from the body. At Villa Medica, the chelating agent is administered intravenously. Once inside the body, it prevents the heavy metals from binding to other agents. They are then excreted from the body.
Since this process also removes vital nutrients like vitamins C and E, the latter must be supplemented. This therapy has a popular use in treating heart disease, kidney dysfunction, autism, ovarian cancer or eye disorders involving calcification.
In high concentrations, vitamin C acts as a prooxidant in the cell. With this characteristic, a high concentration in cancer cells can
lead to the death of the latter. It is also known as a biologic response modifying agent. Vitamin C is infused intravenously in varying concentrations.
Oxyvenation is a method characterized by intravenous administration of medical oxygen in a slow pace. The dosage is precise (2 liters of oxygen per minute). The end effect is the stimulation of blood circulation through the dilation of blood vessels before being injected with the stem cell.
After the administration of cells and/or cartilage material, it is obligatory for patients to take a rest in their assigned rooms for 30-36 hours. During this period, food will be served in your room.
After cell therapy injection, the following precautions are observed to optimize the effects of the transplantation:
Resting for 48 hours is advised post-treatment; minor activities such as sitting in a sofa is permissible.
Continue living a healthy lifestyle by taking lots of fluids, vitamins, minerals and fish oil, and having a high-fiber diet for at least one month.
Mental and emotional strain should be avoided at least three days after the treatment, if possible.
We noticed that two members of our gang cheated but stopped only when we reminded them.
The excellently prepared buffet table for lunch and dinner by the villa’s top chef is usually Thai cuisine. No beef or pork, but mostly chicken and
what ever you choose to go with it.
After completing the treatment, we were given a pamphlet listing several leisure activities. Heidelberg, one of Europe’s most famous and oldest universities, is nearby. It’s worth visiting the famous park and statue dedicated to the Philippines’ National Hero José Rizal who studied in Heidelberg.
Our stay was a memorable one, not only after rejuvenating and healing, but also the cultural insights in Germany.
Away from the hustle and bustle of city life, Villa Medica offers a relaxing and healthy environment for its VIP guests seeking integrated medical treatments—in particular the signature package, four days and three nights of rejuvenating Fresh Cell Therapy.
After all, health is wealth.
