What is Stem Cell Therapy?

A medical procedure using your own stem cells to help prevent disease or treat a condition. Candidates for this procedure could suffer from tissue scarring, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), or slow recovery from injury or surgery.

How does Stem Cell Therapy work?

The body heals, works to prevent disease, or repairs a condition by using stem cells. When using these cells your body develops the stem cells in the area where it is needed. For example, after an injury where skin tissue was damaged, stem cells will develop in that area to heal the skin faster. Stem cell therapy is widely used in cancer patients with conditions such as lymphoma and leukemia. During chemotherapy cytotoxic agents kill most growing cells. However, using stem cell recruitment therapy cells can grow more rapidly to kill the cancer over time.

Although stem cell therapy is not new, continual research is being conducted to make sure that the safest and most effective form of therapy is used. Many other types of stem cells are being researched, such as adult and embryonic stem cells and cells found in umbilical cord blood.

Stem cells are the basic cellular building blocks of the body’s tissues and vital organs. They have the ability to regenerate into additional stem cells or differentiate into specialized cells. This remarkable ability makes them invaluable in medical treatments. When injected into a patient’s body, stem cells can repair or replace the patient’s damaged or diseased cells, improve health and even save lives. With nearly a third of the US suffering from chronic pain and over a million patients a year having joint replacements, affordable stem cell therapy brings a welcome and viable alternative to the non-reversible trauma of surgery and a non-invasive drug-free treatment method for many internal medical conditions.

Regenerative Medicine

Is a game-changing area of medicine with the potential to fully heal damaged tissues, offering solutions and hope for people who have conditions that were once thought to be beyond repair.

While some people may have ethical issues with embryonic stem cell therapy, most everyone agrees that the use of amniotic stem cell therapy raises no ethical or moral questions. There is a network of participating hospitals that invites mothers to donate umbilical cord tissues that are otherwise discarded after a healthy and normal birth.

One of the most fundamental and profound characteristics of stem cells is that, at their origin, they are undifferentiated. They are not specialized to carry out any one specific function, like red blood cells that are designated to carry oxygen throughout the body or heart muscle cells that are designated to contract to pump blood. Stem cells can give rise to specialized cells through a process called differentiation. This way they can become any kind of cell your body needs, including blood cells, nerve cells and muscle cells.

The following two sources of Stem Cells are currently not FDA approved, and are available to patients as a cash only service. There are sources available from approved labs that are very affordable for the patient and the physician, if you just know where to look.

Umbilical Cord Blood Stem Cell Therapy

Umbilical Cord Blood Stem Cells are derived from umbilical cords and the placenta donated by mothers after normal and healthy child births. This cord blood contains hematopoietic (blood) stem cells and can be used to treat leukemia, blood and bone marrow disorders and immune deficiencies.

Wharton’s Jelly Stem Cell Therapy

Wharton’s Jelly is the connective tissue of a human umbilical cord. Wharton’s Jelly is an abundant source of adult stem cells (MSC) and has gained attention recently from studies showing its great potential in regenerative medicine. The MSCs within Wharton’s Jelly are multi-potent stem cells. They can differentiate into several different types of cells to bring healing to various parts of the body including: cartilage, bone, muscle, fat, liver, brain and heart cells.

Amniotic Fluid Stem Cell Recruitment Therapy

Amniotic flowables have anti-inflammatory properties (Cytokines & Growth Factors) similar to cortisone and steroid shots. This mixture creates an extra-cellular matrix to recruit the body’s stem cells to reconstruct and regenerate the injured tissue that is causing pain. By using amniotic fluid, arthritis, tendonitis, bursitis and other soft tissue injury patients have another option to repair tissue damage without needing pain, masking injections and/or surgery. Here are the following types of injuries that are treatable through the use of amniotic fluid:

Spinal – Neck pain, mid or lower back pain, sacroiliac joints

Joint – Knees, hips, shoulders, elbows, wrists, ankles, fingers and toes

Soft Tissue – Plantar fasciitis, tennis elbow, rotator cuff syndrome, Achilles tendon
