how to enhance healthy aging: boost your own stem cell production

As many of you know I am interested in optimizing health and healthy longevity.  I am not interested in pushing my body to last for 150 or 200 years; however I want a long life with health and sufficient vigor until the end.  Of course this is what I want for my patients and family as well.

Starting around age 25 we begin a slow decline in stem cell production.  These “pluripotent” (can become any tissue) cells emanate typically from the bone marrow and are the basis of tissue healing because they can become muscle, tendon, blood vessel, nerve, bone — whatever is needed.  Our bodies are intelligent, self-healing organisms  informed by good diet, good attitude and the basics of clean living.  Those of you who do your best to commit to these basics are in a terrific position to build on to healthy longevity, by stimulating de novo stem cell production.

I have used PRP (platelet rich plasma) and oxygenation therapies (ozone infusions) for over a decade to help stimulate innate self-healing.  These therapies have been helpful to many but are somewhat invasive, and a bit expensive.  I keep the cost minimal in my office (you could spend thousands on these therapies elsewhere…) but I’m bringing a new idea to you now.  I have followed the possibility of enhancing stem cell production gently and safety for about 6 months now, and am ready to have you join with me in assessing whether the X39 LifeWave patches improve YOUR vitality, expedite wound healing, relieve pain, and deepen sleep.

BEFORE GETTING STARTED WITH X39 explore the link at the bottom of this introduction to read “The Story of X39” for a comprehensive background on how LifeWave founder David Schmidt created X39 patches, and more.

Wikipedia has a decent explanation of copper peptide GHK-CU if you want to look.

On the LifeWave website you can find many clinical trial reports.  I found especially helpful (in getting through skepticism about the concept of 1) stimulating stem cell production via GHK copper peptide and 2) (even more mind blowing) using our own body infra-red heat to “reflect” a specific spectrum of light waves back into the body, triggering the enhanced potential of GHK-Cu. “International Journal of Healing and Caring Vol 20, Issue 2, May 2020 “LifeWave X39 pilot demonstrates light triggered changes” is a starting point for personal research.

Track your progress if you choose to experiment with me.  I have a handy “benefits tracker” form in my office which you can pick up with the patches if you decide to engage.

Make a list of

* Any acute or chronic pain – including back, neck, hip and joint pain, nerve pain, migraine, headaches, eye pressure, toothaches, or internal pains.

* Daily energy levels.

* Endurance and recovery in exercise.

* Quality of your sleep.

* Your stress levels.

* The length, thickness, strength, color, and health of hair.

* Strength and speed of nail growth.

* Skin appearance: depth of wrinkles and fine lines, acne, dullness, loose skin, firmness, elasticity, roughness, skin spots, and hyperpigmentation.

* Any wounds or scars.

COPPER GHK-CU has been shown by hundreds of clinical trials to upregulate stem cell production.  Stem cells can turn into any type of tissue depending on what the body needs for repair.

LifeWave X39 patches have been clinically demonstrated to elevate the naturally occurring copper peptide GHK-Cu, which declines with age.

When Copper GHK-Cu is elevated in the body, this peptide activates the body’s stem cell production.   This provides many health benefits.

GHK-Cu was discovered by Dr. Loren Pickart in 1973 and since then he made it his life mission “to inform the world of GHK’s possible uses to improve human health and reduce human diseases”.

GHK-Cu has been studied extensively over the last few decades. One of the main known benefits of GHK-Cu copper peptide is that it resets over 30% of the genes in the body to a healthier state by safely increasing new stem cell production.

In his latest book, Dr. Loren Pickart writes “Skin stem cells are its “golden reserve” – a resource for renewal and rejuvenation.”

Take a look a the GHK-Cu Wikipedia Page and also do a Google Search so you can see the results of decades of studies that are available.

While universities and researchers worldwide have studied and documented the benefits and the promise of the natural GHK-Cu peptide, no supplement or injection of GHK-Cu has been approved. LifeWave is the only company to develop an exclusive and patented technology to safely and naturally elevate the GHK copper peptide with the human body.

How To Wear

  • Place a new X39 patch either three finger widths below the belly button, or on the “GV14” acupressure point on the back of the neck. This is easily found by trying to touch your chin to your chest and while doing so you will notice that 2 vertebrae protrude a little on the bottom of the back of your neck. The “GV14” point is in the middle.
  • Wear the X39 patch every day or every night, for 12-16 hours per day.
  • Remove the X39 patch for 8-12 hours per day. If left on too long, your body can get used to the stimulation of the LifeWave patch and start to ignore it. All functions in your body work on cycles, just like the need for sleep. So to have maximum effectiveness, there should be at least an 8 to 12 hour rest period.
  • If you accidentally wear the X39 patch for 24 hours straight, then remove the patch and wait for at least 8 hours to start the daily usage again. You can either wear them in the evening or during the day, but not both.
  • It is not necessary to put the X39 directly on the pain or affected area – but you may do so if you wish. Wearing it on the directed spots (below the belly button or back of neck) will positively affect the whole body.
  • LifeWave patches lose efficiency after being worn on or near the body for more than 24 hours. Be sure to wear a new patch every day.

How Long Before I Get results?

Everyone is different. Some people get noticeable results immediately – but not everybody.  Your body heals and regenerates on a priority basis. Your body knows where it needs to heal first internally – which you may not be aware of. Trust the natural healing priorities of your body.

Create a notebook, and write down your baseline on the first page so you can see how much you improve. I have a hand-out on request to track progress.

I recommend wearing X39 for minimum of 6 months. Even if you don’t notice an improvement right away, stay consistent. Most people notice ongoing improvements in health fairly quickly.

Here is an 18 minute youtube of founder/CEO David Schmidt explaining how X39 works in basic terminology.  There is a bit of “business” at the last minute because yes, this is a type of MLM business structure.  What interests me about that is that you can figure out how to break even with your costs if you continue with the patches.  That’s my goal!  I have zero interest in building an MLM business: Natural Healthcare is plenty of business for me.  However, MLM’s can be a great way to have profit “trickle down” instead of staying at the top only accruing to the top managers.

Minimize DETOX symptoms:

Stay Hydrated

Drink a minimum of 1 large glass of water before applying the X39 patch. Continue to drink lots of water throughout the day. This will reduce any possible detox effects such as headache, nausea, or fatigue. If you do experience any mild detox symptoms – don’t worry. They usually disappear within the first day or two.

Mild Detox Symptoms

Your body can go through a natural but uncomfortable cleansing. If you are having detox symptoms like headache, nausea, or fatigue you can take off the patch for the remainder of the day.

Re-apply the patch the next day and reduce the hours you wear X39 to only 1-2 hours per day. Gradually increase the hours as the symptoms go away. Drink plenty of water to flush your system. After your symptoms are reduced, you can continue wearing as normal.

Persistent Detox Symptoms

If you have persistent detox symptoms, you can support your body in detox with a Y-Age Glutathione Patch, or using Readisorb liquid liposomal Glutathione for 5-10 days. Boosting your body’s production of Glutathione may support detox and may speed up detox while decreasing the detox symptoms.


The “Pain Relief Trio”

A nice combo for helping to ease pain is IceWave and Aeon for urgent and immediate pain relief, while X39 “goes to work” activating stem cells to help as a long-term solution for pain relief over time.  X39 works to relieve some types of pain immediately for some, but not for everyone
