The story behind the practice.

The great work of Ideal Health and Regenerative Medicine exists today because a son desired to cure his father’s terminal illness. Dr. Van Camp’s father was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease in 2011. After traditional therapies yielded no benefits, the family sought alternative treatment options. Dr. Van Camp took his father to see a physician in Miami who offered adult-harvested stem cell therapy, stromal vascular fraction, and PRP therapy. The improvement from using the patient’s own bone marrow and fat tissue seemed to awaken Dr. Van Camp’s father from his previous state.

The significant improvement lasted up to six months. Dr. Van Camp and his father returned to Miami for a second treatment and this time, brought his aunt as well, who had end-stage COPD. Once again, the results were astonishing.

During this trip, Dr. Van Camp learned how to process a patient’s own stem cells. He found he could offer this as a compassionate therapy for debilitating chronic and terminal illnesses, or as context for medical research.

He wrote a research protocol, sought approval, and began recruiting patients. It’s believed that the first adult-harvested stem cell procedure in the state of Kansas was performed by Dr. Van Camp on his own father. Since then, Dr. Van Camp has been published for his work with Alzheimer's, performed hundreds of treatments on over 250 patients affected by various chronic conditions, including Osteoarthritis, Multiple sclerosis, Parkinson’s disease, COPD, Diverticulitis, and Muscle-wasting neurologic disorders.
