Stem Cells for Spinal Cord Injury in Mexico

Most spinal cord injuries afflict young adults in their 20s and 30s. Our non-surgical holistic solution applies stem cells for spinal cord injury to reduce inflammation, regenerate damaged nerves, and promote motor function. Learn how stem cells heal spinal cord injuries and what type of stem cells are used for spinal cord injuries.

Why Choose Stem Cell Therapy for Spinal Cord Injuries?

Stem cell therapy is an innovative non-surgical treatment for spinal cord injury that has proven to have great success. Mesenchymal stem cells are finally receiving recognition worldwide as a viable treatment for conditions often related to a spinal cord injury:

  • Bulging discs and herniated discs
  • Sciatica and back pain
  • Peripheral neuropathy, stenosis, and myelopathy
  • Brain trauma and neurological degeneration
  • Partial or complete loss of feeling and mobility
  • Muscle weakness and coordination problems
  • Impairment of metabolic functions such as breathing
  • Incontinence and sexual dysfunction caused by paralysis

Each year, over 200,000 people suffer a spinal cord injury (SCI) and become partially or completely paralyzed due to a car accident, a sports accident, or some other cause of cellular degeneration.

Sadly, most victims are young adults in their 20s and 30s, robbed of their physical and emotional independence. With their whole life ahead of them! Conventional treatments simply aim to restore limited mobility while managing the symptoms of a damaged spinal cord.


Thanks to advancements in regenerative medicine, today a spinal cord injury is no longer viewed as incurable! Only with our international medical standard-compliant stem cell therapy at our alternative medicine clinics in Nuevo Vallarta and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, we can help your body heal on its own without surgery. Of course, each patient’s needs are different, so let’s meet to talk about your unique condition.

Our stem cell therapy in Mexico is performed under the highest quality international standards and regulated by governmental authorities.


Since we are not subject to political or corporate undertones that plague other healthcare systems, our regenerative medicine protocols are more effective than North America’s.

What is a Spinal Cord Injury?


A spinal cord injury (SCI) is caused when any part of the spinal cord or nerves of the spinal canal becomes damaged. Mostly, such an injury is caused by a traumatic blow or cut to the spine.

To illustrate, the axons act like the protective rubber of an electrical wire. If the wire is exposed or severed, the electric signal can no longer flow to the neural cell body. Because of this obstacle in the lines of communication, it is understandable why paralyzed patients no longer have sensation in their legs nor can they send signals to their legs to move.

Since the spinal cord is the conduit for all the nerves to send and receive signals between the brain and the rest of the body (arms, legs, neck, torso, skin, and organs), an injury to the spinal cord may render a person with varying levels of paralysis or disability.

How Do Stem Cells Heal A Spinal Cord Injury?

‘‘Robert looked at me like I was crazy and said, ‘But Sandrine, these are adult patients—adults do not grow new nerve cells.’ And much to his surprise, I said, ‘Well, actually, we do.' Robert isn't a neuroscientist..."

– Neuroscientist Sandrine Thuret

Mesenchymal stem cells are pluripotent undifferentiated cells that can become any type of cell in the body. These 100% certified “mother” cells are ethically sourced from umbilical tissue without harming fetuses. These stem cells can: 

  • Repair damaged axon (the nerve fiber of neurons)
  • Generate new cells to replace the damaged neurons
  • Regenerate myelin (the protective coating of the spinal cord)
  • Reduce inflammation causing obstruction of the spinal canal
  • Promote supra-optimal physical rehabilitation
  • Continue repairing for 6 months to 2 years!

For many decades, it was a common belief that adults cannot regenerate new brain cells like neurons. But recent advancements in neuroscience and regenerative medicine have proven that in fact, we can regenerate new nerve and brain cells!

Currently, stem cell treatments offer varying levels of recovery for patients with a spinal cord injury. For paraplegic patients (paralyzed from the neck down), increased autonomy and motor function may be expected. Full recovery usually is experienced by patients with less serious lesions.

How Is Stem Cell Therapy Performed at Holistic Bio Spa?

Holistic Bio Spa’s team of doctors and clinicians combine their skills and experience in all disciplines of medicine. For what purpose? To make sure your body is in optimal condition to receive and adequately use the stem cells. This is how we do it:
Prepare the soil

Every good farmer knows that for something to grow, you need the right type of seeds and healthy soil.

So, our doctors conduct extensive laboratory blood tests for over 64 markers to determine which type of stem cells will work best for your goals and health condition. We then recommend various detoxing and metabolic-balancing treatments to maximize your investment. For example: cleaning your blood plasma by removing cellular waste and heavy metals, balancing your hormones, and a clinically personalized nutritional program. This preparation phase is a crucial factor because if the stem cells do not have the right building blocks and environment to create new healthy tissue, your results will be suboptimal.

Plant the seeds

Time to plant the seeds! Far better than options available in the USA, our doctors can administer 100% safe and ethical cellular therapies approved by the Federal Health Ministry such as exosomes, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma), autologous stem cells, natural killer cells, and mesenchymal stem cells (from the placenta and umbilical cord) combined with holistic medical treatments to prompt your body to regenerate cells and tissues at a faster rate.

The stem cells will turn into healthy new cells, thus regenerating affected regions for several months. But it doesn’t have to stop there!

Fertilized growth

Seeds grow best when given proper nutrients and care. Therefore, our doctors will recommend additional treatments like intravenous medical-grade therapies with vitamins, amino acids, antioxidants, peptides, and trace minerals, NAD therapy, ozone therapy, high-quality nutritional supplements, and joint formulas to help your body to maintain a healthy, harmonious environment so that the stem cells can properly do their rebuilding work.

A single injection contains millions of stem cells that go to work regenerating your body 6 months to 2 years!

Nobody comes close to our holistic protocol for regenerative medicine with stem cells.

We understand that, while worthwhile, this is a big investment in your health. That’s why (unlike others) we don’t just inject stem cells in you and walk away hoping for the best. Our proprietary procedure for administering stem cells makes sure you get the best results possible. Watch how: 

Patient Testimonials: Does Stem Cell Therapy Work?

I had a bike accident and I had been living my life with enormous pain in my hip. We made the decision ... treatment with stem cells. I didn't really know about it, but Dr. Zoli explained in such a great way. And the therapy ended with such a great, great thing, I just got back my life! I'm not living my life with constant, 24-hour pain in my hip!

Frequently Asked Questions About Stem Cell Therapy

  • Can stem cells really regrow new nerve cells?
    For many decades, it was a common belief that we cannot regenerate new brain cells like neurons and axons. But recent advancements in regenerative medicine have proven that in fact, we can regenerate new nerve and brain cells!

    Currently, stem cell treatments offer varying levels of recovery for patients with a spinal cord injury. For paraplegic patients (paralyzed from the neck down), increased autonomy and motor function may be expected. Full recovery usually is experienced by patients with less serious lesions.

  • What is the procedure like?

    How is the spinal cord stem cell treatment performed?

    • Your consulting doctor at Holistic Bio Spa will review your lab tests and imaging (x-rays and/or MRI) to assess the damage.
    • We may start out with 300 million pluripotent stem cells injected into the damaged area of the spine.
    • PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) may also be administered to maximize the effectiveness of the healing.
    • Regular physical therapy and check-ins must be scheduled to help the body remain in a state of hyper-healing.
    • Immune-boosting treatments and nutritional programs are recommended to give the body the building blocks it needs to heal the spinal cord.
    • Immediately after the stem cell injection, your spinal cord will begin healing.
    • The extent of damage and results vary, but our patients experience a noticeable 70-100% improvement within 2-18 months.
  • Which stem cells are used for spinal cord injuries?

    Which stem cells are used for spinal cord injuries?

    • Induced pluripotent stem cells
    • Autologous stem cells
    • Allogenic stem cells
    • Mesenchymal stem cells
  • How many sessions will I need?
    How many stem cell spinal injections you need depends on the amount of damage that needs to be repaired and your health condition. But generally speaking, 1 injection of 300 million mesenchymal stem cells produce remarkable tissue regeneration in just a few days.

    Our international protocol is far more advanced than the doses in North America. This is why these 300 million stem cells will continue actively regenerating your damaged spinal cord for 6 months to 2 years! But not everybody is the same, so you may be advised to get a series of injections a few months or years apart.

    Note: Some studies even suggest that stem cells injected into the body can continue reproducing and repairing for your entire life! But these studies are still not conclusive. What is known today is that the benefits of just a single injection endure for years.

  • Is this procedure legal?

    Are stem cells legal in Mexico?

    Yes, our stem cells are legal in Mexico and approved and screened under international regulations. All of this is regulated by governmental authorities.

  • How much do stem cells for spinal cord injury cost?
    Our stem cells and holistic helper treatments carry a 20% discount if paid in cash. The same discount applies to most of our integrative and regenerative health treatments.

    Contact us to get a free treatment protocol with costs outlined!

  • Insurance coverage and financing?

    Can I pay for stem cells with health insurance?

    You will have to check with your international insurance provider what percentage, if any, they will cover.

    What if your insurance provider does not cover this type of regenerative medicine? Our third-party medical financing partners can help you maximize medical insurance coverage and benefits. They can also help finance all of your health treatments and stem cell injections.

  • Do I really need stem cells if the body already heals itself?
    Fact: Your body is super wise when it comes to knowing how to heal you. The problem?

    As we age our number of stem cells starts to dwindle (especially if a pathogenic agent is causing further damage). Kids scab their knees all the time and bounce back quickly. But as adults, we are left with fewer and fewer building blocks to make repairs. So some “less important” areas of the body start to decay rapidly.

    This makes sense because your body wisely wants to prioritize using your few remaining stem cells to repair your heart, your vital organs, and keep your brain functioning.

    By harnessing the power of stem cells, you can give your body that healing boost it needs to regenerate at an unprecedented rate.

  • How are Puerto Vallarta and Nuevo Vallarta different from other medical tourism locations in Mexico?
    Unlike others in high-crime areas such as Tijuana and Mexico City, Holistic Bio Spa is located in the heart of one of Mexico’s most beautiful, tranquil, and thriving tropical tourist destinations. No patient of ours ever complains about the safe, inexpensive, and paradisaic healing vacation they enjoy while here in Nuevo Vallarta and Puerto Vallarta! You go on vacation and return home a healthier you… what else can we ask for? Sign me up!

    Note: Just because stem cell therapy isn’t as widely-recognized as surgery and prescription drugs, does not mean that it doesn’t work, nor that it is not a safe alternative. Nature has been around much longer than pharmaceutical companies, and it tends to do the job way better.

    Did you know? No other clinic in the world offers our complementing holistic medical treatments under one roof. We are the only one!

    Stem cells are a natural solution to many health conditions.
