ANSWERS ABOUT STEM CELLS THERAPY
Stem Cell Therapy uses stem cells to treat or prevent a disease or condition.
WHAT ARE STEM CELLS?
Stem cells are fundamentally the building blocks of life and have the potential to differentiate into many different types of cells within the body. Stem cells are actively involved in repairing, regenerating, and rebuilding damaged or absent tissue in the body affected by disease, infection, or injury.
HOW DO STEM CELLS HEAL?
Receptors on stem cells allow them to migrate to areas that need healing and effect change, potentially becoming new cells and creating new tissue to help improve functionality. They secrete chemicals that activate and attract your body's native stem cells to initial tissue regeneration. There is considerable scientific evidence that shows the amazing reparative potential of these cells.
TYPE OF STEM CELLS USED?
We use only the best source of stem cells, containing the highest therapeutic quality bioactive biomolecules of Wharton's jelly-derived stem cells and its extracellular matrix, along with amniotic membranes available. The main therapeutic medium used are umbilical cord stem cells, exosomes, placental stem cells, amniotic stem cells, and PRP.
THE SOURCE OF STEM CELLS?
All the stem cells that we attain are from ethically obtained healthy live cesarean births. The mothers are donating willfully, and they must go through an extensive medical history questionnaire and several blood tests to ensure they are healthy and free from all communicable diseases. Once the umbilical cord and placental tissues are removed, the tissues and the mother and infant are tested again.
TYPES OF STEM CELLS USED
The types of stem cells we use in our protocols are explained below.
UMBILICAL CORD STEM CELLS
Umbilical cord stem cells are retrieved from the umbilical cords of healthy, live cesarean-delivered births and donated by the mothers. These are by far the most effective type of stem cells obtained ethically and are available today. The young age of the stem cells makes them far more biologically active and gives them a greater ability to divide and grow tissue than older stem cells. More immature stem cells are about ten times more potent than that older stem cells. Umbilical stem cells contain several types of stem cells, mainly mesenchymal and hematopoietic stem cells. This allows for the treatment of many other diseases and conditions.
PLACENTAL TISSUE STEM CELLS
These are similar to umbilical cord-derived stem cells and are obtained similarly but are extracted from placental tissue rather than the umbilical cord.
AMNIOTIC FLUID STEM CELLS
Amniotic fluid is where a newborn baby lives during a woman's pregnancy. Some stem cells float within the liquid, allowing for the proper development of a growing fetus, but there are few in number. Many different types of bioactive molecules aid in tissue growth. This is the least expensive type of stem cell treatment available because it contains the least amount of stem cells but is also the least effective. Amniotic fluid stem cell treatment is best used in patients with mild degenerative conditions or as a supplemental treatment to an umbilical cord-derived stem cell treatment to help accelerate tissue regeneration.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is derived from the peripheral blood of the patient being treated. PRP contains a small amount of stem cells, and the healing capability is mostly due to the bioactive molecules present in the injection. PRP treatments will typically range from $500-$2000 per joint. Here at Stem Cell Rejuvenation Center, we provide PRP treatments with all our stem cell treatments free of charge. We also offer PRP treatments independently of stem cell treatments for patients with more mild conditions or those who prefer a less expensive option.
WHAT ARE STEM CELLS?
Stem cells are the building blocks of the human body. A stem cell can replicate itself and turn into other specialized cells, such as blood cells, skin cells, bone cells, cartilage cells, and just about any cell in the human body.
Everyone already has hundreds of millions of stem cells in their body. They're the reason that your skin is completely replaced every 35 days. Stem cells cause your hair and nails to grow. They're replacing the worn-out and damaged cells in your organs and tissues throughout your body. And they're creating 2 million new red blood cells for you every second!
It's been said that you wouldn't live for more than a few hours without stem cells.
What Is Regenerative Therapy?
Your Body's Built-In Repair System
Your body has incredible repair systems. When you fall and skin your knee, your body sends stem cells to the injured area to repair and replace the damaged skin and tissue. When you break a bone, your body sends stem cells to help the broken bones grow back together.
For almost any damage or injury, your body has the tools and systems to make the needed repairs to keep you going. It sends your stem cells (along with a few other special cells) to repair the damage. But as we age, our body produces fewer stem cells. And the stem cells it makes are just not as "healthy and strong" as when you were young. This is why a baby's skin is always soft and smooth compared to a more "mature" adult.
As a result, when our "more mature" joints are injured or damaged from arthritis or degeneration, we don't have as many stem cells to repair the damage as when we were young, nor are the stem cells as strong and healthy to make the repairs. This is why most recent advancements in regenerative medicine have focused on using stem cells and growth factors from healthy young umbilical tissue.
We're so excited to bring Stem Cell Therapy to you.
