03 May Adipose SVF Stem Cell Therapy Can Help With Crohn’s Disease
Crohn’s disease is a common GI illness that many Americans suffer from every day. It can prevent you from eating certain foods, traveling, and even work. This disease is tricky, and sometimes hard to manage with traditional medicines. Surgery may not be an option for some patients, or they just do not feel comfortable with it. Stem cell therapy may be what you need. Stem cells have the ability to heal the GI system from the inside out by creating new, healthy gut cells. This therapy is so beneficial because there is no cure for Crohn’s. Stem cells could be the cure that you are looking for.
What Is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cells create all of the other specialized cells in our body; you cannot create new cells in any other way. There are several sources that we can get stem cells from. They are embryonic stem cells, adult stem cells, adult cells that have been altered to be embryonic stem cells, and perinatal stem cells. Stem cell-based therapies help with healing because of their ability to create new cells that are the same as the injured ones. These stem cells transform into the cells of the target area and heal it by creating newer, healthier tissue, stopping the pain.
What is Crohns Disease?
Crohn’s will most commonly affect the end of the small intestine and the beginning of the colon, but it may affect any part of the gastrointestinal (GI) tract, all the way from the mouth to the anus. Crohn’s disease can also affect the thickness of the entire bowel wall. Symptoms and signs of Crohn’s Disease or inflammation of the bowels are:
- Persistent Diarrhea
- Rectal bleeding
- Urgent need to move bowels
- Abdominal cramps and pain
- Sensation of incomplete evacuation
The causes of Crohn’s disease have not been identified yet. Diet and stress may irritate Crohn’s Disease, but they are not the cause of the disease. Recent research has shown that hereditary, genetics, and/or environmental factors may lead to the development of Crohn’s Disease.
How Can Adipose SVF Stem Cell Therapy Help my Crohns Symptoms?
Adipose SVF stem cell therapy uses mesenchymal stem cells from the body. This treatment offers an alternative to people suffering from Crohn’s disease. Instead of enduring several surgeries, patients can try this stem cell therapy. This stem cell treatment works by stimulating, enhancing, or suppressing an immune response. In recent study trials, these stem cells closed the fistulas associated with Crohn’s disease.
