A Conversation with Dr. Teresa Cody ~ The Miracle of PRP


WG: What promoted you to write a book on PRP, and how did that come about?

 DTC: After working with PRP for 3 years in the Wellness clinic, I felt the need to write about our experiences and the many successes and healing we observed.

WG: What has been your personal experience with PRP if any?

DTC: PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma. It is in the plasma portion of your blood.  A test tube of blood is drawn and placed in a centrifuge. After the blood is spun, it separates into two portions;  the red blood cells fall to the bottom of the tube because they are heavier and the plasma floats on top. The plasma pipetted off and then the plasma is used for esthetics and in areas that are injured. The plasma contains at least 15 growth factors that direct the healing process in the body. The growth factors are the directors of the healing process. They ensure processes like cell division, proliferation, differentiation, and survival. In other words, they direct new blood vessels to be made, new skin produced, increases collagen and everything needed to repair the body.  

My nurse and I have treated many injuries, pulled tendons, ligaments, muscle pain, diabetic ulcers, eye drops for dry eyes, nasal spray to reduce allergies, and esthetic facial procedures. 

WG: Is PRP the flavor of the moment insofar as newer health treatments?

DTC: PRP has been used in dentistry for over 30 years. It has been used in conjunction with bone grafts. Bone grafting is necessary for dental implants to be successful. PRP naturally clots and is placed in extraction sites as a perfect natural band-aid. Post-operative pain is severely reduced and most patients do not need any pain medication.

WG: How did you find the process of writing the book? Problems?

DTC: I remembered this writer when asked how he was so prolific. He said he wrote 200 crappy words a day. I thought, I can write 200 crappy words a day. Some days I wrote more and some days it was less, but what I tried to do was write and not edit.  

WG: Any future books planned?

DTC: I have been considering writing about our son Neal who has Down syndrome and our journey through that experience.
