High Tech Ways to Extend Your Life: How One Man Regrew a Finger.


Dr. Oz shows Oprah Lee's finger. Lee accidentally cut off part of the middle finger on his right hand. Thankfully, his brother, Dr. Alan Spievack, was a pioneer in cellular regeneration. He gave Lee a powder made from the extracellular matrix material found in pig bladders. "I applied that to the wound and just put a Band-Aid over it," Lee says. "I did it for 10 days, and in four weeks, I regrew the finger." Oprah.com.


Dr. Oz also says cellular regeneration research is ongoing at the University of Pittsburgh.


I printed this out and will take to my Surgeon...Can you imagine?!!

There are over 1,000 patient and caregiver stories on the main Sclero.org site.

Judith, what a fascinating article!


Now when you take this to the doctor, are you going to ham it up? I can just see you now, with a little Miss Piggy knuckle puppet. <Puns intended.>

I saw that this morning and could not believe it!! Sure enough the guy's finger was renewed, complete with fingernail and all. That gives hope to so many people. I would definitely like to hear about more people trying out this new method. Maybe, we'll be reading about you in the news. I'm keeping tuned.




Live well, Laugh often, Love much
