Stem cell therapy isn’t just for your aging knees and hips. It’s not just for pre-surgical strategies. It may just be your next step to more radiant skin.

This episode explores how stem cell therapy can be a powerful tool in healing chronic conditions and preventing the decline in the aging process. That is, in every way inside out.

As a Medical Exercise Specialist, who is surrounded by clients and by physicians who utilize stem cell therapy now pre-surgery to improve outcomes and for improving natural healing from everything from knee injuries to hip replacement, stem cell therapy isn’t new to me.

But use of it in skin products is. And let’s face it (pun intended) we all put our faces out there first. We see it first in the morning. We share it now more than ever in our images, selfies, and videos. We want more than ever in our lives to capture ourselves with our loved ones in photos. Yet, there’s often a reluctance to do it when you don’t see yourself in photos the way you feel on the inside.

Could stem cell therapy help? How does it work? I explore this with my guest in this episode.

My guest:

Dr. Joy Kong is a UCLA-trained, triple board-certified physician, anti-aging and stem cell specialist, educator, and CEO. As the founder of Thea Center for Regenerative Medicine in California, she focuses her efforts on the prevention of aging decline, as well as chronic and degenerative conditions that no one else has been able to heal. Dr. Kong believes that complete healing can only come from looking at the whole person - mind, body, and soul. This has allowed her to address the root causes of health issues and lead her patients to fuller, more vibrant lives.
