Diabetes Spotlight: TV Show “Reversed” On Now!


The National Stem Cell Institute Teams With Noted Celebrity Of TV, Film, And Music For First Ever Reality Program About Diabetes

There is a worldwide epidemic raging, well known yet progressing largely in silence because so many people don’t take it seriously. Left untreated it can cause blindness, kidney failure, and nerve damage. Millions of its victims have had to depend on kidney dialysis or have limbs amputated. It is a factor in the acceleration of atherosclerosis, a condition that hardens and narrows the arteries and can lead to stroke, coronary heart disease, and other diseases of the large blood vessel system.

What is the name of this terrible affliction? Diabetes mellitus. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), this degenerative disease has reached pandemic proportions with over 422 million diagnosed cases across the globe. The National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) reports that therapies for both type 1 and type 2 diabetes are among the Institute’s most commonly sought-out treatments. In fact, diabetes is a primary focus of the Institute.

The Importance Of Putting Diabetes In The TV Spotlight

Diabetes is a metabolic disorder. Some medical professionals now categorize type 2 diabetes as an autoimmune disease. But whether talking about type 1 or type 2 diabetes, the hallmark of this chronic disease is the same. Sugar levels in the blood (also known as blood glucose) become abnormally high. This occurs when the pancreas fails to produce sufficient amounts of insulin or the body doesn’t react properly to that insulin. Unless blood sugar levels can be regulated, diabetes becomes degenerative, debilitative, and can ultimately be fatal.

It is high time such a devastating global disease be fully brought into the spotlight. At the very least, it deserves its own dedicated TV program. Now, it has one: Reversed.

First of its kind reality documentary TV series!

Reversed is produced by music, TV, and film celebrity Charles Mattocks, who has seen the destructive effects of diabetes first hand. The program is the first of its kind: a reality documentary TV series that is designed to be a blue print for fighting not only diabetes, but many other chronic illnesses.

5 people selected from around the world will spend 10 days together in one house to accept Charles’ challenge to “reverse.” Medical experts on nutrition, health, and wellness like Dr. Vincent Depasquale, D.C., will teach the house guests to change their ways of eating, drinking, exercising, and –at the core- their entire way of thinking when it comes to living with diabetes. But, this is not just about diabetes! This movement is about those who are in desperate need to be REVERSED.

How Charles Mattocks Became Inspired To Fight Diabetes

In 2009, Charles was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes. Charles wasn’t one to sit back passively after his diagnosis. He began reading everything he could find about diabetes. This led him to not only take a proactive role in improving his health and saving his life, but also inspired him to a calling that has helped so many others on their journey to control and, ultimately, reverse the disease.

The documentary “The Diabetic You” was born from Charles’ dedication to educating and inspiring people all over the globe.

The success and popularity of the film caught the attention of major network talk shows including CNN, The Today Show, Anderson Cooper, Good Morning America and scores of others. His story and his fight against diabetes have caught the attention of the Huffington Post, Diabetes Health, and the Examiner. His regular blog on the Dr. Oz website has further spread the word about his successes in his war against diabetes.

Already an established name in music, TV, and film, Charles has become a celebrity chef dedicated to diabetic-friendly meals. He is also a best-selling author of three books on delicious, affordable, healthy eating and has devoted his career to becoming a world diabetes advocate since his own diagnosis of Type II diabetes. He attributes much of his success to his late uncle and reggae legend Bob Marley, who encouraged Charles to always dream big.

Mining The Expertise Of Noted Lecturer Dr. Vincent Depasquale

Dr. Vincent Depasquale, D.C. is uniquely suited to join Charles’ Reversed medical team. Dr. Depasquale is cofounder of the National Stem Cell Institute in the United States and is the author of a number of articles and columns published in several established publications. He is an expert in functional medicine, nutrition, weight loss, and wellness. He is a highly sought-after lecturer on the topics of metabolic conditions, including diabetes and thyroid disease. He enthusiastically advocates for the utilization of drugless, non-surgical, and advanced but conservative methods in medicine.

Dr. Depasquale’s belief in regenerative medicine techniques like stem cell therapy and platelet rich plasma treatment is based on a solid scientific foundation. Regenerative medicine has been established in the United States for many years now, and has been the root of safe and effective therapies that include treatment for:

  • Arthritis,
  • Autoimmune Diseases,
  • Back Pain/Injury,
  • Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD),
  • Diabetes,
  • Erectile Dysfunction (ED),
  • Joint Pain/Injury,
  • Kidney Conditions,
  • Multiple Sclerosis,
  • Neuropathy,
  • Parkinson’s Disease,
  • Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy (RSD) and
  • Spinal Cord Injury

The National Stem Cell Institute specializes in the practice of regenerative medicine in the U.S. Diabetes is a primary focus at the Institute. Dr. Depasquale and the team of physicians, nutritionists, physical therapists, and medical staff of NSI practice stem cell and platelet rich plasma therapies that strictly adhere to FDA guidelines. NSI’s unique approach to medicine exclusively uses the patient’s own stem cells and/or blood in regenerative treatments to ensure safe, effective therapies that are very minimally invasive, virtually painless, and are performed on an outpatient basis.

Regenerative medicine is renowned for its ability to treat diabetes

Regenerative medicine is renowned for its ability to treat a wide range of illnesses, injuries, and chronic conditions that once were quintessential challenges throughout medical history. Not the least of these is diabetes. This is because stem cell therapy is uniquely suited to treated degenerative diseases. Today, regenerative medicine is revolutionizing how diabetes is treated.

We know so much more about how to treat and manage diabetes than in any other period of history. It is Dr. Depasquale’s and Charles Mattocks’ mission to spread this knowledge as far and wide as possible. The new reality documentary TV series “Reversed” brings that mission to a whole new level that promises to fundamentally challenge viewers to rethink what it means to live with diabetes and just how empowered they can be in changing their lives.

What to Look for in a Stem Cell Medical Clinic

When searching for a qualified stem cell therapy center it’s important to remember that not all of them are created equal. Stem cells, when used properly, are your body’s most powerful means for healing that can repair everything from ligaments, tendons, and cartilage to organs including your liver, pancreas and lungs and even neurological tissue like your brain, nerves and spinal cord.

Unfortunately, the majority of so-called “regenerative medicine clinics” in the world aren’t trained in the latest, most technologically advanced procedures and will, therefore, provide poor results if any.

The good news is the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) has established the most advanced stem cell and platelet rich plasma procedures on the planet which has drawn patients from all over the world as well as professional athletes and celebrities because they are recognized as the best in the world at stem cell therapy.


What makes NSI Stem Cell the top stem cell clinic in the world is demonstrated in 5 key areas:

1. Highly trained and experienced, board-certified doctors and team members who have performed stem cell procedures on thousands of patients with incredible results.

2. Cutting edge procedures utilizing all that regenerative medicine has to offer for many chronic degenerative conditions.

3. Leading scientific researchers who follow the advanced guidelines to maximize the healing potential of your stem cells and to maintain compliance and ethics

4. Use of only the most potent and viable resource of living, viable stem cells and harvested on the same day. No vial that you can purchase will contain living stem cells. If there is no harvest then there are no stem cells.

5. Post-operative guidance for supporting stem-cell growth including rehabilitation, diet and supplement protocols. NSI is a full-service healthcare center focused on patient outcomes. Stem cell therapy is only one tool used to help improve patients’ lives.

Patients have raved about their experience at NSI Stem Cell Clinics testifying that it was their unique cutting-edge procedures that helped them experience a breakthrough when nothing else worked.
