“I believe in it and I believe it’s the next generation in medicine, just like penicillin was,” said the Truro resident. “Regardless of what Canada and the U.S. says about it. They don’t know about it. I didn’t know about it, but I know about it now.”
Dan Huntley is an outgoing chap who had a stroke almost 10 years ago that left him paralyzed on his left side and which in-a-sense turned his world upside down. While his doctors cautioned him to accept his disability and make the best of things, Dan kept looking for ways to restore his former independence. A December 2013 Truro Daily News article on Dan titled “Truro stroke survivor has renewed hope with new car” reflects Dan’s quest for this (You can access at http://www.trurodaily.com/News/Local/2013-12-19/article-3549224/Truro-stroke-survivor-has-renewed-hope-with-new-car/1).
After reading about Arthur Rechlo’s incredible turnaround in the St. Albert Gazette (Click to access), Dan felt that any treatment that could make such a difference in an advanced dementia patient might do something good for him. He then contacted Nova Cells Institute and began a dialog with patient educator & care coordinator, Grace Odgers, Ph.D.
Long story short: Dan was treated over two consecutive days in early May (5-7 and 5-8). Within a very short period of time he reported that his energy level had shot up to what it had been when he was in his 40s and 50s, and on top of this he was feeling “tingling” in his paralyzed left side.
Dan is back home in Canada now and welcomes calls from well wishers and those interested in learning more about his Nova Cells treatment and his response to-date. Those interested in connecting with Mr. Dan should email Grace at email@example.com or call her at 1-562-916-3410.

From an email sent Grace on 5-11-2015 by Mr. Dan:
I can feel bottom of left foot normal and itchy. I can relax and sleep like before stroke. Now I know I have a left side on my body. Foot working little by little. WOW!
And in a 5-12-2015 phone call to Grace, Mr. Dan shared these new developments:
(1) The depression and anxiety that has dogged his steps during most of the years following his stroke has utterly dissipated.
(2) His memory has come roaring back (He is remembering things his stroke robbed him of going back decades).
(3) He can now lean on his left side and stand.
(4) He senses that his paralyzed left hand is about to come to life and begin working.
And this from an email sent Grace on 5-14-15 by Mr. Dan:
3 pm Thursday May 14. Praise the Lord, today I walked some without assistance. No cane. I will be going 22 May for bladder tests and hope my bladder is good by then. Wow, I am coming back to life. This is truly a miracle in the making. This is the next generation in medicine [I have felt this way since I first investigated the Nova Cells treatment. Our medical system is money hungry. They must give us this great chance to be healthy as the good Lord intended us to be]. God bless you all! -Dan
And there is this from an email sent Grace by Mr. Dan on Saturday, 5-16-15 (9:06 pm Nova Scotia):
I can feel the toes on my left foot.
Mr. Dan contacted the Truro Daily News about his turnaround and was interviewed by a reporter on 5-20-2015. He tells Grace that “CTV news may follow my treatment with an interview some time later”.
In addition, he plans on seeing his neurologist in the very near future. Once this MD sees the rapid improvements he has made, he will ask for approval to enter a physical therapy program to reinforce his gains and build on them.

Progressive Supranuclear Palsy (PSP) is a devastating neurodegenerative disease that oftentimes robs its sufferers of their memories, balance and much more. As bad as this insidious disease is, things get even worse when the patient has other neurologic challenges such as Corticobasal degeneration (CBD) (which causes cell die off in various parts of the brain including in many instances those critical to thinking and executive decision).
Recently Nova Cells was approached by a Canadian gentleman whose wife has PSP, CBD and prefrontal dementia. NCIM doctors reviewed scans of this lady’s brain which revealed clear evidence that her frontal lobes had been impacted by her disease. Her husband was advised that if his wife was treated with primed stem cells and the Beacon Factor, she would probably see very mild improvements that would most likely not be manifest until about 2 months after her treatment.
As this was a “heroic measures” case and the husband did not have an exaggerated hopes concerning outcome (“If she could just relax her right arm and hand, which has caused her so much pain, and be understood a little more, this would be a Godsend”), the patient was booked for treatment on Thursday, April 30.
NCIM patient educator and care coordinator, Grace Odgers, Ph.D. candidate was present during the lady’s treatment and had this to say about her condition and response coming out of the gate:
The patient is really in a bad condition. But as soon as she came out of the surgery she was acknowledging things and people around her. She was locking eyes with her husband and looking around which is something she had not done in a quite a while.
And, while her left arm and hand worked normally, her right arm was totally stiff and bent at the elbow and drawn up against her chest. Her right hand formed a stiff inflexible fist which she could not open or relax at all.
About an hour after her treatment the attending physician came in to check on her and noticed that she was more alert and also that her right arm and hand were now relaxed! He took her hand and opened it more and more until it was fully extended. Then her husband asked her to shake hands with him and she did which amazed everyone! We were all absolutely flabbergasted and emotional.
Soon the lady was smiling a lot, especially compared to when she first arrived. Prior to her treatment her face was somewhat stiff and expressionless and though she tried to smile, all she could manage was a forced half smile.
The doctors mentioned that when she went into the surgery room and they commenced treating her, she extended her totally stiff right leg about 2 minutes into her infusion.
The couple returned to Canada on Monday the 4th. Grace called the lady’s husband shortly after they got home and was told by him that his wife’s balance had improved significantly (He added that this is “great” because she has a history of falling).
Nova Cells will update this blog with new information and updates as they become available.
