Exosomes, 3 years later and still awestruck

dr julia stevens family exosomes story

MSC Exosomes have changed my life, and I know it has just begun. 

3 years ago my husband suffered a spinal cord injury from removing a tumor that had been growing in his spine since birth and it left him as a partial paraplegic.  While he did regain the ability to walk early on, I never thought in a million years I would have my husband back in his full form. The vitality, wellness and stamina he has as a father and husband,  I’m awestruck by the gains over this season, and reminded that a hard chapter does not equal a hard life.  And at times, I am guilty of forgetting that he ever even had an injury. When I think back, the MSC exosomes were a pivotal point.  Not only just for him, these Repair microproteins have also given me insight into how to better treat the public in offering optimized health. With access to a groundbreaking healing accelerant, Repair proteins activate our own inborn stem-cell’s ability to repair and recover. It seems with a wide variety of conditions,  Repair proteins are a safe and powerful tool to optimize and embrace our ability to repair and recover.

Every organ has the ability to repair, and healthy cells are possible. 

I am honored to watch people win with their personal health goals. Whether I’m helping someone with helping to reset and reseal their inner digestive plumbing, or helping the brain and nerves calm, rewire and heal,  or helping the immunity from either over responding or under responding to a threat, I have a profoundly supportive tool to offer.  As a practicing Naturopathic Physician for nearly 20 years, I have been privileged to listen and witness many people on their health journey.  When I was a child I dreamed of helping people with full body health restoration. Thinking to myself, ‘our bodies are so amazing, why can’t we be free from all this disease?’ Truly our human skin bags, we call our bodies ,can be amazing or they can feel like a cruel trap. We all need to work with what we were given, and yet, insight and care go a long way. Our daily experience and ability to embrace them makes a big difference in the quality of our lives.  In our modern era of pharmaceutical rich medicine, we have been stripped of our full ability to take care of ourselves. Our medical freedoms are deteriorating, and  the mainstream emphasis on man-made products and procedures can minimize and potentially damage the power of the body’s inborn ability to heal. Worse yet,  we are left not knowing what to do and how to move forward when we are stuck. 

Caring for ourselves is an important skill to have as a human. 

How to actually care for our vessels in a very personal way is a profoundly important skill to have. And Repair proteins are a powerful restoration accelerant that is both safe and deep and long acting. The repair process is not overnight (people do not wake up the next day with a completely new organ system). What does happen is the inflammation levels come down almost immediately, giving people a much-needed break on aches and pains and inflammation. This takes many people out of imminent health danger, and the repair process continues on a cellular level at an enhanced pace. So 3 months later, 6 months later, 8 months later, people are repairing and recovering in ways that we didn’t even think were imaginable. As a person, I can be very idealistic when it comes to healing. And as a practitioner, I tend to be quite the skeptic.  My desire is to serve people in recovering and restoring their very best health, because pain and suffering are soul robbing, and there are simply better ways of being with support from the right tools.  We all have lives, and our own light to share with the world. Being empowered and secure in our health is part of the foundation of living the lives of our dreams. 

We are simply living in a time of much illness and toxicity. 

It’s easy to get disheartened. Collectively, we can seem to be barely holding on, especially our mental health!  Experiencing and watching repair proteins have given me a new outlook over the last three years. Watching people and working with crafting personalized repair plans helps to give me hope for this generation.  Repair proteins have the ability to repair our cells, signaling receptors,  and may even help in repairing our own genetic code. The inborn ability of the body to create new cells,  whether it’s heart, lung, skin, connective tissue, or nerves; is a powerful and often untapped process that gives good results. Our bodies are miraculous self-healing machines. Our human vessels are the only vessel we will have for this life we are living.  We have the ability to naturally recover our strength and stamina,  when we get thrown a curve-ball, or when we just want to see how good we really can feel. Feeling good feels really good. 

When we don’t know what to do, (or who to trust), What do we do?  

It’s time to seek better than the standard of care given in the traditional system. The hospital system has many good people, but they are limited to what they are taught, and the tools they are allowed to offer. So, what do we do when we want to be better than regular? It is my hope to share this gift of MSC Exosomes, also known as Repair proteins, with regular people who are wondering what else can be done. People who are looking to have optimized health and whole body restoration. When my husband went down with a spinal cord injury, I did not believe we would ever enjoy a family hike again. The picture above shows one of my dreams coming true, and this realization sparks my passion to share this tool. My passion in life is to empower people in having their own best health.  Sharing health strategies and teaching people how to take the best care of their vessels, while creating a personal strategy with clients, is how I satisfy my own need to help make the world a better place.

Exosomes add a new dimension in whole body healing support.

Watching people recover their health in a true genuine manner, has. Health restoration is not as far off as people think. Some people have simply never been taught where to even begin to optimize there health. We certainly don’t get many examples of people winning with their health, these days we here much more about disease and illness on a regular basis.  We have a medical system that profits off of people continuing to be ill, and so the incentive and motivation to recover our health has to come from within. Empowered lifestyle and health habits aren’t necessarily spoon fed to us as a culture. The importance of sleep, and what we need to eat (or not eat), how we need to move our bodies or simply how we need to take care of them on a daily basis, is often only learned after we are in risk of losing our health. Generally we know more about how to take care of our cars than we know how to take care of our human vessels.

MSC Exosomes are truly a modern health hack. 

Even if the idea of improving your daily habits and making positive changes sounds too daunting – you can receive MSC Exosomes and they simply work without changing a thing.   Whatever you do to support your overall health, Repair proteins synergize the human system to be optimized and more dynamic in its healing response. It’s possible to get an immediate boost without changing any habits. A common ‘side effect’ is a better working metabolism (ie. insulin, blood sugars, etc), and people often report craving vegetables! As a long time health advocate (and a mom) I love this. Our health instincts naturally are tuned up, and we crave taking better care of ourselves. 

Repair proteins promote efficient repair and recovery.

Restoration of our organ systems seems to occur on many levels simultaneously. Our metabolism improves, a higher rate of functioning for the nervous system is noted, inflammation calms down,  and we’re able to think better- in total the organ systems begin to work better together.  Like I’ve said earlier, it’s really amazing to be able to watch people heal. It’s easy to get down in our thinking, and falsely believe we cannot break through a chronic illness. It can feel like the pharmaceutical system has such a strong hold on humanities well being, and we feel dependent on outside influences to try to encourage our bodies to heal. But this is NOT TRUE,  it’s what we’ve been sold for generations. And this has had an effect on our attitudes and culture. More people than ever before are coming back to the roots of their own health and personal power. 

Repair proteins are simply different and very powerful.

MSC Exosomes are simply filtered micro-proteins from a single placenta source who’s cells are being kept in a petri dish in a lab. When these micro proteins are given back to the body, this amplifies all of the self-healing regulation that is inherently within all of our bodies. It’s an amazing process to watch someone’s Health Restoration unfold.  I have been privileged to both benefit from regaining my husband and the family unit that feels whole, and in my practice to be able to watch clients reach their best health. These past three years have truly been a humbling process. Now that I’ve seen these repair proteins in action, it’s hard to deny they exist.  MSC Exosomes are not FDA-approved for everything, though the positive research is mounting every single day.  They are approved for wound healing and skin applications.  There exists a conflict of interest within the FDA.  This results in ‘whole-body’ approaches,  those with an ability to get to the root of disease and illness, are not widely advertised or even recommended. It takes stepping out and seeking a path less common to experience the effects of MSC Exosomes.

MSC Exosomes mix well with many different treatments. 

It’s a fantastic characteristic of repair proteins, and makes health restoration so fun to observe. Simply an amplifier of what your body is already naturally trying to do! So other therapies that are promoting healing synergistically all work together.  And, even medications that are being prescribed work better because the organs that the medications are targeting are optimized and working more efficiently.  Bodywork, counseling, dietary and detox strategies all seemingly work better because the human is functioning at a higher level. The health support from a multitude of sources synergistically gives a better and optimized result.

Repair proteins are completely customizable to suit the needs of the person.

Repair proteins may be repeated every few months, and less frequently, is an option as well. This all depends on the person’s specific situation. I’ve witnessed people keeping a high quality of health and vigor with an annual boost keeping their whole human system amplified. Sometimes I begin to take exosomes for granted because I can assume that everyone already knows about them.  The reality is we, my husband and I, had to go through some hard struggles to find them.  As we learned how to maneuver the curve balls that were thrown at us, and which tools harnessed the biggest leverage for widespread healing, we also as a young family were on a tight budget.  We didn’t take on techniques that were going to not prove worthwhile. Countless hours went into my research before my husband was patient number one. Here, 3 years later, I am happy to share this picture above. This is our family, last weekend when the six of us embarked on a rigorous hike climbing up the side of a mountain like mountain goats.  We made it to the top and we all congratulated ourselves and the friend that took this picture said, “Wow. I can’t believe Jeremiah can do this.” And it hit me, ‘Wow. We can so easily take our healing for granted.’ I’m so thankful we both had the courage to take those early steps, and for all the help and meaningful coincidences that helped us along our path. My hope is that those who could benefit from MSC Exosomes are able to realize the benefits in their own lives. Our bodies are powerful self healing vessels, and this is just the beginning.  

Favorite organic skincare 10 years later

How did I choose Organic Skincare?

     10 years ago I started on a journey to understand how to best protect myself from breast cancer. Wait?! Breast cancer? Yes.  If you’ve ever been privileged to know an older generation of Slavic. The women are good at looking good and loving their people, and this was part of my grandmother’s legacy.  Hair, nails, style- yes, yes and yes. And you never know what you will miss about someone, until you are grieving them. Ten years ago, in September,  I was watching a football game where the entire team had these hot pink towels hanging out of their pants. That’s ridiculous, I thought. What’s that for?  I asked my husband sitting next to me, “Why are there hot pink towels on the field?”  and he replied  “Oh it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.” I thought to myself, ‘There has got to be a better way to protect ourselves from breast cancer than watching football with bright pink towels!’  In hindsight those bright pink towels did get me to take action, life certainly has a sense of humor. It was then, on the couch, annoyed with mainstream sports, and sitting in a puddle of grief, that I began to research and got determined to find the best organic skincare for myself and my family. I began learning about the different environmental factors, chemicals and toxins, that carry a potential cancer risk for humans. My grandmother would have wanted me to do whatever I could to minimize the risk for me and my daughters, while not giving up all things beauty. Since we share genes, I feel both blessed and responsible for my family. I wanted to make sure we don’t walk down the same pathway. We have breasts, let’s protect them! And there is nothing wrong with looking good. Now, ten years later, I am still inspired by what I’ve come across as a champion for organic skincare. 

Skincare labels; what’s in there and what’s not?

     At first, you may assume all ingredients are actually listed on the label. Well, that’s not exactly true- coloring agents, and anything less than 1% of total volume need not to be declared. This makes it hard to discern exactly what is in the products.  Especially, if you are watching for trace ingredients for potential allergens, it can be a nightmare. I prefer when companies offer full transparency, and that can be a rare find.  The FDA regulates many things in our country, but when it comes to beauty and skincare, there are no regulations for consumer products coming to market. In other words, this means that skincare brands are legally responsible for 100% their own regulation. What was that?  Let that sink in.  100% responsible for their own regulation.  For example, common ingredients like phthalates, are found to have hormonal effects and are known to be endocrine disruptors. This is NOT what we need for women who are pregnant, or planning on becoming pregnant, or children, or those concerned about hormone related cancers.  And, did you know? Common chemicals used in anti-aging skincare actually contain ingredients that can cause oxidative damage themselves. This means, while increasing irritation and damage at the cellular level, customers keep applying hoping for the promised results. This makes no sense! Once I learned this, (and now, you have as well.) My thinking brain has a desire to use products that are going to both promote the best health for my skin today, and have no risk of accelerating aging in the future. Talk about swimming upstream… No wonder people feel so defeated when it comes to aging!

Can organic skincare actually be of luxury quality?

     Think to yourself, what if Clinique (or Dermalogica) had a British cousin that was simply upstaging them in all the ways? Neal’s Yard Remedies is celebrating leading the world standard in organic luxury skincare for over 30 years. Began by a Homeopath and Naturopath who opened an apothecary in the streets of London, with business partnership this brand has developed into a worldwide brand. 

 

Do Organic ingredients actually make a difference?

     In ten years of watching people use NYR products both personally and clinically, I have been blown away with how amazing skin can improve when given the right support.  Witnessing the most stubborn acne magically vanish with the Palmarosa line.  This herbal line is both antiseptic and not drying or damaging to even the most tender skin.  For more seasoned skin, I have seen age spots and fine lines with wrinkles turn back and seem to almost disappear with the offerings within the Frankincense line.  While tapping into plant stem cell derivatives, and using the highest quality raw ingredients to support our skin health, “organic” and “science” can be on the same page, and in the same product. Does your skin struggle with dryness? The scent of orange blossoms from the neroli oil will lift your senses.  Stubborn rashes, sensitive skin and burns respond so well to Wild Rose Beauty Balm.  Over the years, I have had the pleasure of experiencing just about every item in the catalog, and I have yet to be disappointed. It’s one thing to find a single product you enjoy, it’s quite another to find a company committed to taking the high road every step of the way.

 

Neal’s yard is good for the planet and the world’s people

     Fair trade is important. As a North American woman I feel like I have been given both a privilege and a responsibility to make wise choices. We are all on this small blue planet together. When the ingredients are sourced from other parts of the world, the community contracts are both equitable and support the community at large. For example, I remember learning in the second year of using NYR,  the women from the Samburu tribe, in Northern Kenya, who collect the frankincense resin previously did not have running water. NYR provided the funds to complete construction for running water in the village, to help the women in their daily life. This community project was included above the fair trade contract for each individual working woman.  Since I first learned of that project, more recently NYR has continued to support an estate of 40 women in the Atlas mountains of Morocco, who harvest the organic orange blossoms (neroli) who would be socially marginalized otherwise and Amazonian communities cultivating the organic acai.

What are the benefits beyond skincare results?

     The subtle benefits of aromatherapy in the different product lines are a nice daily treat. Having a gentle scent to both lift your mood and well-being on a regular basis, is a good thing!  It’s nice to smell good things, and they contribute to a sense of delight with their gentle support. Essential oils can be good for our skin, and good for our brains. I usually can not tolerate scents, (instant headache), but having a scent that is natural with no nasties, is a treat. Those mall shops can leave me with a headache for hours. Note, NYR’s sensitive line is without any essential oils, for the most sensitive who are among us. Also, organic home fragranced items are also offered… because mainstream plugins can be a real toxin overload.

What’s so important about using the best organic ingredients for your skin?

     Yes, I want the best in beauty and anti-aging. The path less traveled  is to actually intentionally choose a brand. We tend to stick with brands we know, or what family or a friend uses, and never actually evaluate them with a deeper understanding. In this situation, I’m sorry to be messenger, but what we don’t know can hurt us. The products we have learned to trust over time may not actually deserve our loyalty. Ultimately, you decide for yourself. If you are wondering what is out there, consider browsing the catalog and discovering NYR.  Neal’s Yard Remedies is both good for our skin and good for our environment, offering fair wage contracts globally, and truly setting an example of how we can do good things with our purchases- championing conscious business practices. Even if your brain doesn’t care about the details, the products are simply amazing. With a single product alone- Wild Rose Beauty Balm, you can turn around your neglected and weather damaged skin health from the harsh reality that it may be right now. 

Wanting the best skin results, while taking no extra nasties?

     Neal’s Yard Remedies to the rescue. You may browse and explore the digital catalog  or walk through the web store.  Thank you in advance for supporting our business, and I look forward to hearing about which products you’ve fallen in love with.  Not sure what to try? Rose Polish and Frankincense Hydrating Cream are personal favorites. The Frankincense Cleansing Melt is a newer release that is quickly rivaling the cleansing wash with its extra moisturizing while being lightweight in texture. Begin with browsing the collection in this digital catalog, and choosing products to try for yourself. 

Changing the world, one blue bottle at a time.

Owning your path

There was a time when I thought the only thing that mattered was “getting it right.” Little did I know, there is no one right path. Why do we torment ourselves pursuing a single objective point that may not exist in the first place? Because there is a race, a hustle, and we are born into it.  And we go and we go, until we get tired of the hustle. What are we even racing for? Who are we trying to impress anyways? And do they even hold a position of authority in our current world? Or are they taking up space like dirty clutter in our minds?  Humans.  Why is it so hard to break out of the pack? Because the pack kept us alive in primal times. However nowadays, fitting in could actually be killing us. 

Our stories matter, our lives matter.  In our society right now we have choices about what we wear, and what we eat, what we watch and what we read. But when we question what medicine we use … we can catch flack. I am going forward and encouraging humans to be humans again. Let’s help each other have the best lives. For me, when I was young my body hurt so bad, I couldn’t participate in life fully. Now I am experiencing the best health of my life, and still in pursuit of better.  For me, I was chasing answers ‘out there’.  Learning to listen inside, and finding other people who also honored the same process was a pivotal shift.  What’s a big deal for one person may have little significance for the next, and it’s all valid. I’m honored to watch people grow and heal. For 25 years I have been on a quest, ‘What are all the other ways we help the body heal?’ 

The mainstream healthcare system is supporting shareholders, not identifying solutions.  I love access to a wide tool box- and I love acknowledging we are not alone. Medicine is definitely not a one size fits all type of conversation. 

This skin bag You are tied to is the only one you will have; it’s a self regenerating super machine blended into a miraculous moving water balloon… and we can definitely take them for granted. Our bodies have been there for all the moments that we have since forgotten about and we are all managing through 2022… So let’s take a deep breath. Oxygen matters. And we can rest knowing our bodies know how to heal. What is your body asking for?  I challenge you to practice self care.  And in this process, this requires us to be in charge of our own vessels.  Self care is health care,  and life is for truly living. 

All the best, 

Dr Julia
