Well from what I recall from my high school biology class, all the "code" for organs, limbs, everything really, is still there in the DNA. But as it's replicated, there are little "blockers" which block off those strains representing things that only grow once, that way you keep growing skin and not, say, arms.
So as far as I know, regeneration is possible, you've got all the blue prints and the resources, it's just as far as your DNA is concerned, some stuff is off limits.
Now if you were to be able to add and remove the ban on growing those parts.... hm....

I don't reckon it's quite as simple as that.
I figure DNA to be in a dynamic relationship (now obviously this begs at least one question "with what?")
And we so obviously have examples of cell-growth out of "normal" relationship.
Trying to hack your DNA seems to me to be somewhat risky, although the idea of a "reset" sounds ok...
I mean, we're not salamanders...

This Russian researcher claims to be able to regenerate organs, teeth etc. Is this guy for real?

That's what gong is all about! Our DNA is in a dynamic relationship with our environment, behaviors, and other life patterns that influence the way it expresses. Changing any one or combination of these factors results in new and varied things being coded for. Two weeks of eating something and your body starts making those metabolic pathways more solid at the expense of certain other, less frequently utilized ones. We play with our sleep cycles similarly, affecting things as varied as melatonin regulation and dream content. Beyond that, we do relaxation and breathing exercises to calm the cortisol and adrenal responses, paving the properly alkaline environment for certain other genes to come into subtle alignment.
The nature versus nurture argument is and always has been off the mark, assuming a false dichotomy when really it's a complex unfolding feedback loop in a dynamic dance between the two.
