20 Dec Healing from the Inside Out Using Stem Cell Therapy
General health and well-being are of the utmost importance but, it is not until people’s health starts to falter, that most people recognize how important it is. The human body is complex, and many illnesses or health conditions will have a negative impact on a day to day basis – affecting mobility, movement, pain, and flexibility and, some health conditions will have a more serious nature needing medical attention. When pain is persistent and chronic, pain management is important but, identifying and then, alleviating the cause is paramount. Nowadays, stem cell therapy is being used to help treat a growing list of diseases and disorders with successful results. Stem cells can be utilized for common injuries or even those conditions which could be determined as chronic.
There are many conditions which can be improved using stem cells and these include:
- Arthritic conditions
- Injuries to the hip, knees, wrists, hands, ankle or foot injuries
- Spinal cord injuries
- Parkinson’s disease
- Nerve damage
- Multiple sclerosis
- Muscular dystrophy
- Cerebral palsy
Stem cells are an important part of the modern medicines healing process because they are a natural resource, and promote healing from the inside out. Simply, they use the basic building blocks already used by the body for tissue repair or for the restoration of specific functions. Adipose stem cells are highly potent and abundantly available as they are extracted from the individual’s own body. This is important because it means there are no foreign cells introduced which would automatically higher the risk of rejection by the immune system. The procedure is simple, under a local anesthetic, adipose tissue (fat) is removed from the Superior iliac spine or, from the abdomen. This is a much better alternative to extracting cells from the bone marrow and there are higher quantities of stem cells available in adipose tissue.
These cells play an important role in the healing of wounds and on a cellular level, can aid the regeneration of tissue. Medical science is enthusiastic about the role of adipose stem cell therapy so to repair any damage or injury to organs, tissues or even bones. It works because it can help to restore health and full function simply by stimulating the individual’s own regenerative processes. In addition, adipose stem cells are self-renewing. This is very much a case of working with the body and not against it, and the success rate is considerable.
There have been many clinical trials which have researched autoimmune disorders, and these include arthritis and Crohn’s disease amongst others, but the healing for skeletal tissue repair, myocardial infarction, and soft tissue regeneration is also included. Adipose stem cells have been used for intervertebral discs degeneration and even for pulmonary disease. Another benefit is that they have a very effective anti-scarring ability. Any treatment which requires the use of adipose stem cells tends to be a short procedure and is typically done within one day. Certainly, tissues contain larger volumes of mesenchymal stem cells that would be available through extraction from bone marrow and is far less invasive.
