Joe Rogan And UFC Fighter Eryk Anders Discuss Stem Cell Therapy
Our Patient And UFC Fighter Was Recently Interviewed By Joe Rogan On JRE Pod Cast About His Stem Cell Therapy.
Stem cells can be used to repair and regenerate damaged tissue. They can also help reduce inflammation and promote healing. This technology can be used to treat a wide range of conditions. This includes degenerative diseases and chronic injuries. Eryk Anders, a professional MMA fighter and former NFL player, believes it is the future of medicine.
In this episode, Eryk delves into the benefits of stem cell therapy for athletes. He explains how UFC fighters, like himself, often sustain injuries to various body parts. He also believes in the effectiveness of stem cells in regenerating damaged tissue. This, and reducing inflammation, are crucial in the UFC. He shares his personal experience with the therapy. He also talks about its positive impact on his training and recovery.
Eryk, early on in his career, took a lot of damage to his neck, first from his years of playing football and, more recently, from MMA training. Fighting out of submissions puts a lot of strain on the neck. All the years of hard training were starting to slow him down. So he looked for other options than surgery and decided to try stem cell therapy.
Eryk had severe disc degeneration in C6 – C7 and degeneration in discs C3 – C6, plus bilateral and multilevel facet degenerative disease. He had constant pain that was aggravated the more he trained.
He had to slow his wrestling because it caused him so much pain. He couldn’t put his head in the proper positions necessary for wresting. His training often left him w numbness in his hands and arms, which concerned him.
Eryk’s shoulders and knees were also torn up from his years of training and fighting.
His shoulder MRIs showed glenoid degeneration of articular cartilage and subchondral bone with narrowing of the glenohumeral joint. His right knee has a Grade III torn medial meniscus. His knee was swelling up all the time.
Eryk had knee surgery where around 50% of the meniscus was removed. Unfortunately, the surgery just made his knee worse instead of better.

[00:07] The Ultimate Goal is to Win
Eryk talks about the satisfaction of rendering an opponent unconscious in the UFC.
However, the sport is not without its challenges. It surely requires a high level of physical and mental preparation. “It’s kind of hard to train and get ready for a fight when you’re hurting all the time,” he says.
[01:12] Eryk’s Health Issues
The professional fighter shares, “I’ve got some bulging discs, arthritis in my neck, some degenerative tissues on my shoulders.” The traditional route to repair the damage will be surgery. But he decided to explore stem cell injections as an alternative.
Stem cell research has made great strides in recent years. It has also shown promise in regenerating damaged tissue and reducing inflammation. This non-invasive approach offers many advantages over surgery. Examples are faster recovery, less pain and discomfort, and fewer risks.
For Eryk, stem cell therapy is a much better alternative to surgery. It can be a great way for athletes to avoid going under the knife.
[02:19] Fighting Father Time
Eryk believes all those years of playing football are taking a toll on his body. But he is committed to fighting Father Time. This is an idiomatic expression that means “to overcome the effects of aging.” It means keeping up the physical and mental ability levels he had in his youth.
[02:33] Potential of Medical Technology in Mexico
People in the US may be aware of medical advancements. But they might think differently about healthcare in Mexico.
Eryk recognizes the stigma. But he chooses to appreciate the country. “The gym here has been a plus. Great hotel, and great food down here in Mexico. I like to travel so I’m kind of killing two birds with one stone,” he adds.
[01:12] Stem Cell Therapy is the Future
He talks about how stem cell therapy is much cheaper in Mexico than elsewhere. He also stresses that word of mouth is the best way to spread good feedback about it. It’s not just Eryk who has experienced the quality service over there. Other fighters have been down south before, too. He asks, “Can you get some of this stuff in America?”
His body is not as resilient as it used to be. But treatment has helped him reverse the effects of playing football for so many years. He also talks about how stem cell therapy is the way to go in the future of medicine. He believes people should give it a try.
