Dr. Adelson began his training in regenerative injection therapy in 1998 while in his final year at The National College of Naturopathic Medicine, in Portland, Oregon.

During his residency program in Integrative Medicine at the Yale/Griffin Hospital in Derby, Connecticut, he volunteered after hours in a large homeless shelter in Bridgeport, Connecticut, providing regenerative injection therapies to the medically underserved while gaining valuable experience. He opened Docere Clinics in Salt Lake City in 2002 and from day one, his practice has been 100% regenerative injection therapies for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain conditions. In 2006 he incorporated platelet rich plasma and ultrasound-guided injection into his armamentarium, in 2010, bone marrow aspirate concentrate and adipose-derived stem cells, and in 2013, fluoroscopic-guided injection (motion X-ray).

Since February of 2010, Dr. Adelson has performed over 4,000 bone marrow and adipose-derived adult stem cell procedures, placing him among those most experienced in the world with use of autologous stem cells for the treatment of musculoskeletal pain conditions

Board Certified in Emergency Medicine with 10+ years of direct patient care, Dr Killen has been practicing Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine for five years. She is fellowship trained in Anti-Aging and Regenerative Medicine through A4M and has done extensive additional training in aesthetics, platelet rich plasma and stem cells, hair restoration, bio-identical hormones, nutrition, fitness and sexual dysfunction.

Dr. Killen oversees a busy clinic with a comprehensive, integrative approach to health and also works at Docere Medical with Dr. Harry Adelson, providing cutting edge regenerative medical treatments for a host of different conditions.

Dr. Amy Killen has spoken nationally about PRP and stem cells, as well as sexual dysfunction and regenerative treatment options. She teaches a physician training course as well, outlining current best practices for using regenerative medicine for aesthetics and sexual optimization.

What motivates you? If you're like most people it's one of two things:

A) The avoidance of pain
B) The pursuit of pleasure

This unique double-interview, narrative format show was motivated by the former. Pain. Lots of pain, for a long, long time- mostly in my lower back and right hip.

It all started 25 years ago when I injured my hip drunk-hiking in Angeles National Forest. I used to pack booze into the woods with my homies, get hammered, then try to find our way back out. It was the best of times, and well, you know the rest of the line.

At any rate, rather than having my hip looked at by an actual doctor, I had my pot dealing, boarding house manager Bob (who was incidentally, a spitting image of Steven Seagal) knock my displaced hip back into the socket with a giant rubber mallet.

Suffice to say, that method of medical treatment was not only ineffective but left my hip injured, which eventually put a strain on my S.I. joint. Add to that initial injury 15 more years of hauling massive musical equipment around the world while playing in rock bands (mostly also done while intoxicated), and you've got me at the current age of 47 years old, in fairly constant back pain.

Over the past 21 years that I've been into alternative health, biohacking and all ways and means by which to heal your body, mind, and soul, I've tried anything and everything I've ever heard of to improve my back and put an end to the nagging pain. The list is far too long to include here, but I'd dare say that I've tried just about anything that you can think of to fix it, short of straight-up surgery.

While I have had moments of reprieve here and there through the application of various modalities, nothing has ever really helped in a meaningful way.

Over the years, however, I have heard over and over again about the healing power of stem cell therapy, and have met many owners of injured, painful human bodies who have experienced nothing short of miraculous healing experiences using this increasingly popular natural-medicine intervention.

Due to this fact, I've had the words 'Stem Cell Treatment' on my yearly vision boards and journals, in hopes that someday I would be so situated as to try this emerging technology on my back.

Well, as fate would have it finally in February 2018, the stars finally aligned and I was able to travel to beautiful Park City Utah to undergo dual treatment under the care of doctors Harry Adelson and Amy Killen at Docere Clinics.

Dr. Harry worked his magic on my lower back, hip, spine, and shoulder, while Dr. Amy focused her injections on my face, scalp, and penis. Yes, you read that correctly. Why would I have them put there? You'll have to listen to this episode to find out.

This extraordinary show follows my entire journey from LA to Utah, in cars, on the airplane, to a local hot spring, and right into the operating room where the two interviews took place, mere moments before I went under anesthesia and underwent the procedure.

This will no doubt be a trip you won't forget as you ride co-pilot along with me on my latest experiment to find the ultimate solution to this long-standing physical challenge.

If you know anyone with persistent pain, or someone who's looking for safe alternatives to anti-aging and sexual optimization therapies, please do them a favor and share this episode with them now.
