A human barbie has rushed to have 30 million stem cells transplanted into her body to avoid her catching coronavirus.
In a bid to remain healthy Marcela Iglesias had 30 million stem cells transplanted from an umbilical cord into blood stream in hopes that it will help her to avoid covid-19.
After recent outbreaks of the virus in her hometown of Los Angeles, California, Marcela rushed out to have the $6000 transplant.
Marcela said: “I started the research of stem cell therapy because of my father’s diseaes and I have learned a lot about it, unfortunately, my dad is not doing well and he didn’t want to go through the treatment, so I took the advantage of all the information and I decided that it was time for me to do it.
“After all the information I gathered, I decided that mesenchymal stem cells via IV therapy was the one for me, there are many others procedures, but this was the most convenient.
“I was willing to go through and it is done in the United States of America, so I don’t have to travel overseas where there are many places now offering all kinds of stem cell treatments.
“The stem cells are provided by the FDA regulated lab in USA.
“After talking to the doctor and his assistant for a couple of weeks the date arrived and I felt very happy about my decision of doing it.
“I believe that with the coronavirus spreading uncontrollably over the world, the extra 30 million stem cells in my body will create a shield into my immune system to make it stronger.
“The treatment went great, it’s like receiving an IV fluid, I was there for an hour and a half and I felt very relaxed.
“The doctor showed me the three tubes where the 30 million stem cells arrived, they were frozen.
“The treatment is not cheap but I feel that people, in general, including myself, spend a lot of money on things that have no benefit in the long term, especially when it comes to health, so I decided to dig into my savings and give my body a great gift.”
