“Dr. Mike Van Thielen left his home in Belgium to come to America with just $400 in his pocket. He is a prime example of “incremental Improvements” in action, having advanced his career from disc jockey to doctor and authority in Regenerative Medicine, while also setting a World Record in swimming recently. His story is an inspiration to athletes, sports fans, and anyone working on self-development.”
Author, “Incremental Improvements: Change Your Life One Small Step At A Time”.
“Dr. Mike is a fellow author, speaker and philanthropist. When he was 26, he saved $400, stuffed his backpack and came to the United States from Belgium as a Physical Therapist. Now he is the CEO/President of a renowned Regenerative Medicine and Stem Cell based therapy company. Dr. Mike is not only a multiple U.S. National Master Champion in swimming but also holds an American and World record. I like that Dr. Mike dreams big, sets huge goals and most of all accomplishes them. That’s what makes him not only a great leader but also a great example. He walks the talk.”

Dr. Mike Van Thielen has a natural and cutting-edge approach to healing and his patients see amazing success as a result of his continued innovation and dedication.

“In my efforts to assist a major client in the Middle East to provide advanced medical care to its citizens, I focused on Regenerative Medicine and in particular Stem Cell based Therapies, as it showed promise in the treatment of a variety of endemic ills that plague this client’s country, its citizens and the region. I was fortunate enough to make contact with Dr. Mike Van Thielen and his clinic. Not only a technical leader in the science, he also has an uncommon ability to connect with patients, carefully explaining the procedure and expected results, giving the patient confidence. As a naturalized US citizen, he has adopted and now exudes the American Dream—innovation and results. His story is fascinating and inspiring.”

“As a retired Major-General, I enjoy playing tennis, swimming and working-out. My right shoulder was giving me more and more trouble and I decided to visit the doctor. He said it was arthritis and gave me a cortisone injection but that didn’t help at all. An MRI showed rotator cuff tears and the orthopedic doctor recommended a reversed shoulder replacement surgery but indicated I probably wouldn’t play tennis again. Therefore, I looked for another option and ended up receiving allograft injections in my shoulder at Neo Matrix Medical. 4 months after the treatment I was totally pain free and playing tennis again. It’s been two years now and my shoulder still feels great. Dr. Mike and his team are simply excellent and care for their patients”.

“What greater testimony to one’s life work and mission, than being told, what you did for me, changed my life. You hear that repeatedly from those Dr. Mike has worked with. His own experience as a high-performance athlete enables him to bring a unique perspective to not only the physical side of high performance, but also the mental side which is often even more important.”

“I came to know Dr. Mike while researching stem cell therapy to possibly address Alzheimer’s disease. I was leading a Health Ministry at our church and preparing presentations on Alzheimer’s and Stem Cells at the time. I went to a seminar by Dr. Mike who did an excellent job of describing stem cell therapy as well as the procedures his company, Neo Matrix Medical, utilizes to maximize the health benefits. I then scheduled myself for stem cell therapy for August 29, 2018, to address my severe Sciatica. I had rejected surgery. It has now been 8 months and the results have been absolutely amazing. In addition to a full recovery from my sciatica, three other sources of pain have also vanished. Dr. Mike is a remarkable person and has built a fabulous regenerative medicine clinic. I have referred several people so far and all those who went are happy with their pain reduction and increased body function.”

“I have known Mike for over 35 years now and if I had to describe him in one word, it would be “Persistent”. Even in the most precarious situations he stays optimistic; his glass is always half-full and giving-up is not in his dictionary. His persistence has delivered him success in both his athletic and professional career. As a competitive swimmer he won several Belgian National Titles and this year, at age 47, he swam a World Record in the 4x100m Freestyle relay with his Belgian team mates. He also was a very knowledgeable and successful swim coach here in Belgium. Mike is not afraid to work hard and is always there to provide a helping hand. I can count on him 100% of the time. I’m proud of his accomplishments so far but mark my words when I say “We ain’t seen nothing yet”.
Professional Swim Coach
“I am a big fan of Dr. Mike because of his energy and drive, but most important he instils HOPE in people whether if it’s someone with a medical condition or someone who just needs a reason to keep trying. I believe I have always been a HOPEFUL person myself. I have chosen a career path of investing in Real Estate and always HOPED I could make a living by doing that. After buying and selling 100’s of properties in the last 50 years, the tally to date is very positive and it has afforded me and my family a very nice living. But if I had lost HOPE during the lean Real Estate market periods, the unplanned problem periods, etc. I would have given up a long time ago. That is why I only want to do business with people like Dr Mike.”
President Daytona Land Company
“I got to know Mike as a inspiring motivational speaker in the Regenerative Medicine arena, working to help countless people to get treatments for devastating conditions like neuropathy, and preventing knee and hip replacements by endorsing stem cell based treatments to shift peoples’ mind from sick-care to healthcare. At the same time, Mike took the 'make it or break it’ task to break several swimming records. He trained hard and DID it. What a great accomplishment and demonstration of dedication and strength. Dr. Mike, you are an inspiration for all of us.”
Serial Entrepreneur in the Regenerative Medical Space
“I have had the pleasure of knowing Mike personally and professionally. He continues to amaze and inspire me with his continued success, unbelievable drive and accomplishments. He is definitely a type A personality and is never satisfied with just “average”. Mike is constantly trying to improve, learn and I can honestly say he is the most driven individual I have ever met. Not to mention a phenomenal speaker. He can easily captivate an audience in an entertaining manner all while delivering a strong informative message. I have watched him grow over the last few years with his success of Neo Matrix Medical and witnessing first hand his American Record in swimming. I will continue to be one of his biggest fans and supporters for years to come.”

“I have known Dr. Mike for many years. I was sick with Ulcerative Colitis Disease and conventional physicians were unable to help me. Dr. Mike designed a specific nutrition plan for me, taught me how to juice with a cold pressed juicer, and put me on some medical grade supplements. Within the shortest time I noticed significant improvement and I haven’t had issues for years now. Since my recovery, I invited him to speak for several groups in Toronto. I have to say: “he is a phenomenal speaker, with a wealth of knowledge to share!”
Equine Business Owner
“I have known Dr. Mike as a colleague/partner; practitioner; motivational speaker; and healer. His uniqueness in the Integrative Medicine Health Sector is one of Practical Performance: As a World Class Athlete and the ‘Houdini of Health’. If you haven’t seen him perform on stage yet, it’s a must!
Jo Dee Baer
Certified health coach/nutritionist
“I have known Dr. Mike for over 8 years now. He has always been a loyal friend and a true professional in all aspects of his life. He puts 110% into everything he sets out to do or accomplish. From Swimming competitions all over the world, in which he excels, to his leadership at Neo Matrix Medical. I trusted him as a patient with physical therapy, acupuncture and trigger point injections, and with stem cell-based therapy at Neo Matrix Medical. The allograft injections prevented me to have a surgery for a torn rotator cuff. A biceps dislodgement that was not repairable with conventional surgery also healed. I now have approximately 95% of the original usage of this arm because of the stem cell procedure. It has been a pleasure knowing him over these last years, both professionally and socially.”
Sharon B Phelps

“Unlike most people, I had the privilege to call Mike a close friend for over 35 years. Mike is a person that goes ‘ALL IN’ when he sets his mind to something.

He showed everyone that it’s never too late to reach your goals.”

He is a professional always looking to increase his knowledge base. His regenerative medicine work is a good example. Dr. Mike has a profound respect for food integrity and knows how the body heals itself when put in the right conditions. He walks…rather swims…the talk by eating healthy and keeping his body fit.”
