Dr. Nowicki, Where can I buy powdered pig bladder or the other materials covered here: http://www.ted.com/talks/lang/en/alan_russell_on_regenerating_our_bodies.htmlIt's crucial I get them ASAP because if my rectum heals now, as we hope, there will be formation of scar tissue; and this will reduce its expansion capacity and water absorption, resulting in a life-long nightmare of high bathroom frequency.

I have not yet had the opprotunity to watch the entire video. I will, but I am in and out with patients today.
There are a few places to consider getting glandular products. You may be able to contact a local compounding pharmacist who can get that for you. However, this may require a prescription from your doctor.
There is a company called standard Process that makes many glandular products. You can contact them and ask if they have bladder glandulars : http://www.standardprocess.com/display/PublicContactUs.spi
Another company called Priority One also makes glandular products. They have one called Total Gland Plus but I beleive it is more designed for the endocrine system rather that the digestive system.
Many glandular products come from New Zealand as they have very high standards.
If you can not find a company that makes the glandular, you can consider eating it as a food source. Although this does not sound appealing, it is how it used to be done.
Unfortunately, I do not believe that straight powdered pig bladder is available in the US as it is not FDA approved.
I think we're talking about two different things. This is powder you put on a sevored finger and a new finger grows back (like on a salamander).I would need to apply this solution to my rectal tissue so it heals back as new instead of scar tissue.
I mentioned the glandular products as a possible alternative.The powdered pig bladder is not available for purchase or by prescription. The product is in clinical trials and the only people receiving treatment are involved in studies. Unfortunately, it is not an option at this point in time.
It's a shame to not have access to such a benefitial substance. (I imagine it would be great for fresh surgical incisions as well.) I wonder if I can buy a bladder from a farmer and dry it.
That may be a possibility. However, the safety and use has not been proven. It is disappointing that such a promising treatment is not available at this time. Safety is paramount however as the first rule in medicine is to do no harm. In the mean time I will continue to provide as much information as possible to help you achieve wellness.

thank you. I would think NOT applying it to wounds is "doing harm".If I dried it, I wonder the best way to sterilize it to prevent infection, without disturbing its regererative properties?
