Now, here's his exclusive interview with UltimateHuman.Org:

What originally inspired you to get into health/ wellness?  

The inspiration came when several diverse aspects of my life, goals, and aspirations all aligned.

A girlfriend of mine worked in the pharmaceutical industry. From the stories she told, it was clear that the medical system was broken.

Maybe it was naïve to think that the goal was to heal people, but that wasn’t the case at all. Physicians with years of medical training had less control over a patient’s care than a mid-level insurance company executive. Doctors couldn’t prescribe medications, order tests, or recommend the best treatments without insurance company approval. The incentives seemed to be all screwed up — focused on money, not well-being.

Fast forward a few years, I was a real estate executive working with a property in Mexico that seemed right for an industry I hadn’t heard much about — medical tourism. I was introduced to a group involved with stem cell therapy and began to advise them on the business aspect of their organization.

Now I am not a scientist, but I saw how this group was pioneering new medical treatments that were unavailable in our broken U.S. medical system. I realized that I could work with these scientists to help improve medical care for more patients & leave a legacy for future generations.

What’s your favorite part about working in health?

Learning and being at the leading edge.

What I know today about new emerging therapies pales in comparison to our talented researchers, but it often extends beyond what’s generally known in the U.S., even among physicians.

The more I learn about the science of regenerative medicine, the more excited I get about its future and its potential to both extend our lives and improve our quality of life.

But in a way, it’s a double-edged sword, because the more I learn about all this exciting research, the more I’m convinced the U.S. science is starting to fall behind the rest of the world — which is unfortunate.

What are you most proud of in your career so far?

Giving back.

Sure, I’m an entrepreneur, but I make sure that we also make our treatments available to those who need to heal, but can’t afford the best treatments.

For example, we treat many veterans at no cost.

We saw Leroy Torres, who suffered from toxic poisoning while serving in the U.S. Army Reserve in Iraq. He had been working in those burn pits now known to have caused many health issues.

And we were proud to offer treatment to Omar “Crispy” Avila; another brave veteran who had sustained severe burns — and who now has less pain.

Treating heroes like these aren’t just decisions I’m proud of, it’s my honor to do so.

What’s something new in health/ wellness you wish more people knew about?

We now have an entirely new approach to treatment and wellness that many people don’t know about, but it’s destined to change the way we think about medicine.

Right now, there are two basic approaches: Cut people open or give them artificial chemicals to kill off microbes that cause disease.

Don’t get me wrong, these are valid approaches... but they can also be disfiguring or cause side effects.

Now there’s a third approach: Helping the body heal itself at a cellular level.

The body is constantly healing itself, but regenerative medicine is based on enhancing this natural process.

If you could wave a magic wand and fix something about the modern-day healthcare system, what would it be? 

If we’re talking about the modern-day healthcare system in the U.S., I’d like to see:

  1. Patients to have more choices

  2. Physicians with more freedom to make decisions best for their patients — instead of what’s best for health insurance companies

Other countries do a much better job at this. All we need to do is look at these approaches. No magic wand is necessary.

What are you most excited about in the future of health? 

When I look at all the power of artificial intelligence and machine learning, I’m convinced that in the future, we’ll have medications personalized for individual patients.

Just one formulation for a medication or supplement? That will be considered archaic as we begin to design personalized medications & treatments based on an individual patient's condition, DNA, age, and other aspects we may haven’t even considered yet!

Is there anything else you’d like to add? A message you’d like to share?

I believe Confucius once said, “If you’re the smartest person in the room, you’re in the wrong room.”

I’m always willing to learn and to be convinced that I may be wrong about many things. If anyone disagrees with what I’ve said in this interview, let me know.
