Olympian Escapes Canadian Winter For Sun, Surf And Stem Cells


From -16F to +80F, Canadian bobsled pioneer, Christina Smith, sought refuge in Southern Baja on a medical vacation getaway, not only for the great weather but to pursue regenerative joint treatment recommended by her doctor in Calgary, Alberta.

Plagued with an arthritic knee due to the wear and tear of a 12-year extreme bobsled career, Christina previously received orthopedic treatment via alternative therapies in Canada (Prolotherapy and Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)), which proved effective.

However, it was not successful enough for the active 50-year-old who used to indulge in an active life of outdoor pursuits and found herself avoiding the aftermath of pain and discomfort as of late.

Due to the inability to receive the next level of regenerative treatment known as stem cells and exosome therapy in Canada, Christina headed south to the PRMEDICA clinic in San Jose del Cabo.

Conscious of organic health and wellness, Christina preserves herself naturally without any cosmetic surgeries, hair dies, nips or tucks.

Known for her never-ending smile and positive energy, Christina’s additional gift to herself in Cabo was an anti-ageing PRMEDICA treatment for facial lines done with exosomes and stem cells out of their second clinic in Cabo San Lucas.

All treatments were competitive or lower in price in comparison to other regenerative retreats, without sacrificing quality and safety of service.

Having transitioned from ice on the track, to ice in her glass, Christina has returned to Calgary with fond memories and bright hopes to re-engage in an active lifestyle thanks to the medical team of PRMEDICA for the availability in this day and age of alternative and regenerative care.
