Stem Cell Benefits for Hormones, Autoimmunity & Anti-Aging with Dr. Adeel Khan


Dr. Adeel Khan is at the forefront of the transformative field of regenerative medicine and innovative therapies. In this episode, Dr. Khan’s insights shed light on how stem cell therapies and gene editing technologies could revolutionize the treatment of various conditions, from aging and autoimmunity to cancer and skin health.

“None of them are offering real stem cells. They’re offering what are called committed progenitor cells. Unless you isolate the actual mesenchymal stem cell and culture expand it, it’s not a true stem cell.” – Dr. Adeel Khan

Dr. Adeel Khan and Dr. Stephanie delve into a comprehensive discussion on the nature and future of regenerative medicine. Dr. Khan shares his expertise and experiences, providing a rich tapestry of insights into stem cell treatments’ versatile applications and ethical considerations.

I’m Dr. Stephanie

Part geek, part magic, and all the way passionate about being a well-lived woman.

I want to throw my grandkids in the air in my 70’s. I want to be squatting even more weight than I am now, and putting my OWN luggage in the overhead bin. Sound like weird goals? For me these are just some of the little things that represent a life well-lived.

My health is MY job – I’ll be damned if I rely on luck, ‘good genes’ or a cocktail of drugs that over promise and under deliver.

The Betty Body is my first book-baby, and a collection of what I’ve learned after thousands of clinical hours, hundreds of conversations with the world’s top experts, and most importantly…

This book is an outline of what took ME from “rock-bottom health” at 38, to being my own version of a Betty in my perimenopausal mid 40’s. A woman who is physically strong, full of energy, enjoys mental clarity, great sex and a joyful family life. Is it all roses? Of course not. But I have the stamina and tools to deal with the push and pull of life so that it doesn’t turn into chronic stress.

I want this for you too. Let’s go Bettys!
