NAD+, Statins, and Parkinson’s Disease

NAD+ is a powerful molecule as we discussed in the last blog. NAD+ declines as we age and that decrease has been associated with the progression of many illnesses. NAD+ depletion specifically affects mitochondria, the energy center of every cell in your body.  When...

One of the most prevalent misconceptions about Bone Marrow Derived Progenitor Treatments is that these are "stem cell" treatments alone. In fact, a small fraction of cells that contain DNA within a bone marrow aspirate are “stem cells." In actuality two generally...

    Before coming to Dr. Bashir, I had multiple injuries including, Knee Shoulder and Neck. Being based in the UK I researched various companies and Dr. Bashir proved to be the ideal fit for the treatment that I was looking for. From the very first call, Dr. Bashir gave me the confidence that he would be able to improve my injuries. His personal service is exemplary. On arrival to Miami, I was impressed by the welcoming atmosphere of the clinic. The treatment was as expected and I look forward to great results.

    Finding Ocyon and Dr. Bashir was truly a Godsend. After experiencing severe whiplash from a car accident 3 years ago, I was diagnosed with a herniated disc. My neck was always stiff and in pain plus I had frequent headaches. I just wanted to avoid surgery and get back to my regular life. Dr. Bashir spent alot of time with me going over my MRI and discussing treatment options. He also educated me on regenerative medicine and gave me a tour of his state of the art facility. The procedure he performed on me was the best thing that ever happened. I was in and out the same day and it was completely painless. Within 1 week my headaches went away and my neck started feeling normal again. After my 1 month follow up visit, he showed me how my hernia had almost completely reduced and there was no longer any pressure on my nerves. I cannot be anymore grateful for Dr. Bashir and all of his very friendly staff. Thank you!

    Dr. Bashir did a wonderful job when it came to my treatment. I came in with back issues and after having a treatment with Dr. Bashir I am now getting the relief that I needed. I am making great improvements and I am very impressed with the healing effect that my body has been able to achieve. Before meeting Dr. Bashir, my sleeping patterns were interrupted constantly and after my procedure, I am able to sleep all night without waking up in pain. I am very confident in the work Dr. Bashir preformed and have had great success with him. I am having improvements of up to 70%. The OCYON team is one of the best that I have encountered. They were very attentive and treated me like if I was part of their family.

    I was involved in two car accidents is 2017, rear ended twice, not my year to say the least! I had done everything to avoid the "knife", so to speak, as I did not want surgery to repair my 4 herniated discs in my neck and my 3 herniated discs in my mid-back as a result of my two car accidents. I tried everything; acupuncture, chiropractor (three different ones), 18 injections in my back with anti-inflamatory and pain medications, and neck decompression therapy. Although these made me fell better the effects lasted only days. I did not know what else to do besides submitting myself to surgery which, in my early 50's with diabetes, high blood pressure and asthmatic, I did not want to do at all costs. I started to my own research on-line and came across Dr. Bashir and his team of healthcare professional and the work he was doing with platelet replacement therapy. I have never heard of it until then. Intrigued and hopeful I went to see Dr. Bashir for a consultation and after a few minutes of consultation I knew platelet replacement therapy was the way to go! After two treatments, 30 days apart, I felt many times better than when I walked in. Now, 5 months later, I have avoided surgery, regained mobility and range of motion and live pain free. The work that Dr. Bashir and his team, especially Randy, physical therapist who broke me down and put me back together so that Dr. Bashir can practice his art of regenerative medicine, can not be understated. I can enjoy my life again thanks to their professionalism and work. Avoid surgery at all costs until you have met Dr. Bashir and his team!

    I have had chronic lower back pain and multiple shoulder surgeries over the last 20 years. Not wanting a shoulder replacement or back surgery at this time, I turned to Dr. Bashir for help. I told him about my situation and all the avenues of physical therapy and surgeries that did not yield the desired results. Dr Bashir was very professional and showed a kindness and concern that is not often displayed in the orthopedic field. I am still in the process of recovering, but the stem cell therapy has definitely given me hope that I will be back better than before and without the chronic pain. I am very happy with my choice to forego surgery and exercise all my options like regenerative medicine, and OCYON Regenerative and Dr. Bashir have my utmost confidence.James Quinn 01/16/2019
