Stem Cell Therapy: Unlocking the Healing Power of the Body
What is Stem Cell Therapy?
Stem cell therapy is a type of treatment option that uses stem cells to help repair damaged tissue causing (or the result of) chronic disease or injury. The therapy is usually performed relatively quickly through injections or infusions as an in-office procedure.
What are the risks?
As with all medical treatments there is a varying degree of risk. Today there are literally thousands of stem cell treatments being done daily, and most do not report adverse effects.
Will it cure my condition?
Stem cell treatments are effective for many conditions, and often help manage/reduce painful symptoms, but of course every individual responds uniquely to treatment. We are on constant alert for breakthrough solutions to offer the clients we serve the best possible results.
Is there a cost for your patient advocacy service?
No we are paid by the network of providers we serve. Our network is continually expanding as we identify the most successful treatments available and add those trusted providers.
What conditions can be treated with Stem Cell Therapy?
Most areas of the body can be treated. Currently there are thousands of clinical trials in process studying hundreds of treatments. (See clinicaltrials.gov.) Here are a just few examples of promising new developments:
- Diabetes: Type 1 Diabetes is being treated in over 150 clinical trials with stem cells with positive results including improved blood sugar stabilization, and even sone improvement in pancreatic function.
- MS: From Japan to Jordan stem cells are being tested on treating MS. The latest advances in experimental treatments in the United States have shown exceptional results.
- Parkinson’s Disease: Patients with this condition develop difficulties with motor skills due to a progressive reduction in the production of the neurotransmitter dopamine. Certain stem cells (called Mesenchymal stem cells) have the ability to transform into dopamine secreting cells in the brain. This reverses dopamine decline and improves motor function.
- Skin: As we age we naturally lose the elasticity in our skin that keeps it smooth. Stem cell injected into the derma layer have been shown to restore natural elasticity.
- Orthopedics/Joint Therapy: With over 100 clinical trials underway for the treatment of joint issues including osteoarthritis, and daily treatments of joints using stem cells– stem cell therapy for joints is well on its way to mainstream medicine. A number of high profile athletes have returned to careers that previously would have ended had it not been for stem cell treatments, including Hines Ward of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Jarvis Green of the Denver Broncos, and Sidney Rice of the Seattle Seahawks.
- Hair Loss: Every day we lose between 40-100 hairs of the 100,000+ on our heads. As we age, half of the male population and 30% of females lose the ability to replace the hairs at the rate they fall out. Stem cells have been shown to grow new hair in scientific studies. Today doctors are able to use stem cell therapy to restore hair loss naturally. The procedure is non-invasive and effective.
