Exosomes 4: Back on the Treadmill Again
Four weeks ago, I treated two patients with exosomes in some damaged tendons. Happily, both are back on the treadmill again.
The first patient is a 53 yo woman who used to run frequently. At one point she was so fit that she was at 11% body fat and encouraged by her trainer to do amateur fitness modeling. As a child, she skated a lot and twisted her ankle frequently. Over the years, the pain from a particular tendon in her right front ligament was so bad that she gave up running entirely. For many people running provides not only fitness but also a sort of therapy from the endorphins.
Yesterday, I was pleased to hear she has lost five pounds since stopping her hormones and resuming the treadmill. The reason I advised her to stop hormones two weeks ago is that she had periods again after using Recharge for 10 months. Last week, she started at 1 mile a day and has worked up to 3 miles daily now. It has been years since she was able to run and this is only one month after exosome injection into the painful ankle tendon.
The second patient is an elite 60yo athlete who injured his hamstring tendon in January. Since then, he had tried everything but the pain was prohibitive so he was relegated to using the stationary bike instead. Four weeks ago, I injected his hamstring with exosomes. These are the texts that I got from him today:
No pain at all. The recovery has been remarkable. Hamstrings take a very long time to recover. I’m running on a treadmill, which is very different than running on the street. I’m building up strength in my legs week by week and hope to be running in a month or two. It’s not 100% yet but ever since your exosomes, my recovery has been impressive.
Finally, then there is the amazing 80yo runner, Doug, who is planning with 8 friends to tackle mountain three peaks in 48 hours. His knees were injected with exosomes 4 weeks ago as well. He says the knee pain no longer forces him to walk. I’m so happy for him!
It appears that the benefits of tendon injection are gradual and continuous and are better at four weeks than at two weeks. As we might expect, pain and inflammation is common, mild, episodic, and brief (minutes to hours) and those symptoms occur around day 3 to day 13. The healing is also often associated with odd twitching and cramps. Here is a text from a 48yo patient who had exosomes injected old injuries to his damaged patellar tendon, left wrist, torn left elbow, and right shoulder tendons. He notes what sounds like painful lymphadenopathy in the armpit, consistent with possible clearance of damaged cells from the repairing of the left elbow and right shoulder:
Day 13...feel good my shoulder is a lot stronger maybe 35% improvement since injection. I had a bruise and tender left armpit for a couple days then went away. Then the right armpit felt bruised for a couple days. Maybe the glands were swollen from the exosomes. Other joints feel good. I tested the knee with a little more range of motion during my leg workout and it didn't cause the normal pain I would feel. Over all good mood a little better than normal.
If you or someone you know has a troubling tendon or ligament (tendons are where muscles attach to bone and ligaments are where bone attaches to bone) then please contact me to discuss possible therapy. My email is email@example.com

Archived exosome blogs….Please read them all.
N.B. On 2/29/2020 I changed my philosophy about keeping these blogs private. The archives up to blog 32 were appended to blogs that had yet to be created when the earlier ones were first written.
I still have voluntary ASMR. Mom’s arthritis is greatly improved.
I explain why I believe exosomes aren’t inert. An amazing case of an overnight in heart rate variability is presented.
A case of whiplash and traumatic brain injury improved after exosome use.
After exosome injection, two runners were able to return to running after limitations from tendinosis that plagued them for months (in the case of the 60-yo man, and years (in the case of the 53-yo woman)
In this blog, I discussed how complicated clinical medicine can be. Different treatment protocols, ambiguous results ethical dilemmas and strange phenomena like acquired coffee aversion are part of what make treating with exosomes so challenging.
Using my left foot as an example, I attempt to explain that while some exosome effects are immediate, others take time. Remodeling of damaged tissues is a complicated process. My foot is still scarred and probably will be for life.
A patient after dental exosome injection becomes pain free after 4 years of suffering.
I explain why lab testing of freshly thawed exosomes is SUPPOSED to come back as normal saline.

I interviewed the principal scientists of Kimera Labs and other experienced clinicians using exosomes
66-yo Deb B went from not being able to do one squat to 100 per day after exosome injection.
80-yo Doug describes in his video how much his knees have improved since getting exosome injections. He is reaching new athletic peaks with no signs of stopping.
My 82-yo mom underwent microneedling with exosomes with fantastic results. Most impressive was the absence of “downtime” from redness or bruising.

I delivered two lectures in Hawaii. The first was about exosomes generally and the second is a password-protected video about clinical applications.

I explain how poor we are at assessing change and how attribution and recall bias play important roles
In the past year, there has been a lot of shifting loyalties in the exosome space resulting in a lot of rumor, innuendo, and bad press. With various parties trying to get each other in trouble with federal regulators, it is a treacherous business to be in.
I describe a case of an 86-yo woman whose chronic leg rash disappeared after improvement in her leg circulation
I use a car wash analogy to answer the question “how long do exosomes last?” The answer is it depends on how dirty and damaged the car is, how well you clean it, and how dirty you get it after washing.
I describe four cases of improvement of osteoartritic knees from my trip to Hawaii.
I explain the three definitions of placebo and why I believe most of the effects of exosomes cannot be attributed to the so-called placebo effect.
Some remarkable “soft signs” of exosome effects include itching (new nerves), twitching (new muscles), and heaviness (a healing FORCE).
Three amigos came to see me and all enjoyed benefits. The best was the 48-yo gentleman who had a dramatic improvements to his irritable bowel syndrome, varicose veins, and appearance.
I address the common observation from patients that exosomes seem “smart” or that they know where to go. In fact, I doubt this is true and that they are no smarter than player piano scrolls are good musicians.
I gave a lecture at the University of Hawaii with about 80 attendees. Around 10 of them were actual patients. Hear in their own words how exosomes helped them.
I describe two cases of improved leg swelling and explain what causes this common condition and how exosomes may be improving it.
