Stem Cell Therapy
HEAL YOUR BODY NATURALLY
About Stem Cell Therapy
The most commonly cited function of stem cells is their ability to differentiate into different tissues but they also have other abilities that can be very beneficial for healing. Stem cells produce over 30 types of growth factors and tissue chemicals that stimulate healing. Stem cells help recruit other local and systemic stem cells to focus on repairing damaged tissue. They are also active in immune modulation to promote or suppress T-cell function.
Stem cells are triggered to move into an area by signals from the tissue based on chemical, neural, and mechanical changes. Hypoxia, which is lack of oxygen, and inflammation are strong triggers for stem cells to target an injury, although the stems cells account for less than half of the new tissue formed. The rest of the repair is done by other cells recruited and managed by the initial stem cells. This is why very tiny injections of stem cells are used.
Under ideal conditions stem cells would respond to injuries and healing would occur. Factors that affect stem cell response include age, fitness level, and the level of free radicals in the body. Free radicals damage all cells, including stem cells.
Is stem cell therapy right for you?
Stem cell therapy has huge potential and should be considered as a healing treatment for injuries or organ damage. In addition, systemic stem cell therapy shows promise in treating neurological conditions. Providing nutritional support for the body's own stem cells is always a good option, which can be supplemented by using targeted injections of harvested stem cells. These injections are especially useful when nutritional support does not create enough healing effect or the injured area, such as ligaments in a patient's lower leg, has poor circulation.
Frequently Asked Questions
What is stem cell therapy?
Where do stem cells come from?
Stem cell therapy, also called regenerative medicine, triggers the healing receptors within your own immune system to promote the repair of injured or diseased tissue using stem cells or their derivatives. Stem Cell Therapy is a breakthrough in natural healthcare.
Adult stem cells can be isolated from the body in different ways, depending on the tissue. Most commonly, we take blood stem cells from your own circulating blood, bone marrow or abdominal fat. Then, we use a centrifuge for concentrating as many stem cells as possible before re-injection.
How can stem cell injections help my chronic pain?
Stem cell injections have been proven to successfully treat chronic joint pain, discogenic pain, neuropathic pain, and osteoarthritis. Not only is stem cell therapy a natural medical treatment, but it is also one of the best for treating chronic pain conditions of all sorts.
