Fibromyalgia (FMS) is a persistent and debilitating disorder which causes extensive musculoskeletal pain, fatigue and tenderness throughout the body.

The obvious strategy is to directly administer glutathione. This can be done orally, topically, intravenously, intranasally, or in nebulized form. Glutathione administered intravenously, inhaled, and ingested intranasally increases systemic levels. Glutathione has a short half-life but has shown at least short-term efficacy in several diseases.

HBOT, is a type of treatment used to speed up healing of carbon monoxide poisoning, gangrene, stubborn wounds, and infections in which tissues are starved for oxygen.

Having been assured by my physicians in Fall 2013 that no recovery was possible for my sudden onset Bell’s Palsy, I searched far and wide for hope. There are many important players in my nearly 18-month saga but the final and most critical was Roy Schmidt, M.D. His vision to bring regenerative medicine and stem cell therapy to West Tennessee made it possible for me to now find myself at the finishing stages of complete recovery. The outstanding care providers at New Life Medical Group offered me a hopeful path to bring back my face. Who would have thought that my surplus fat would make it possible for me to smile again? I’m on home plate – with tears of gratitude.
“To exist and not live is not good.” I thought that forever people would be driving me around and helping me put my clothes on. I have no more pain, I don’t have a burning. Pain works on your mind, body and it takes a lot of things away. You can sleep or do anything – you have no life. Dr. Schmidt is so wonderful – he attends to your physical needs and emotional needs – it is the whole person he is attending to. This has given me my life back. You don’t want to be on medicines your entire life. I am free of my pain and I never thought I would be.
My back has hurt really bad for the past 22 years. I had back surgery, it helped for a little while, and then the pain came back. EVERY DOCTOR I HAVE SEEN SINCE THEM HAS TOLD ME THERE WAS NOTHING I CAN DO – JUST TO LIVE WITH IT. It got worse through the years and they gave me pain pills…I wound up in a wheelchair. After seeing DR. Schmidt, my back is now 95% pain free, I’m learning to walk again. My only regret is that I didn’t find this sooner.
