Stem cells are unquestionably some of the most amazing cells in the human body. These are undifferentiated cells that do not have a direct “blueprint” or specific destiny. They can become differentiated into specialized cells anywhere throughout the body. They are classified as 2 different types of cells, those that are from embryonic origin and those called adult stem cells.
Research shows the therapy may benefit the following:
- Frailty syndrome
- Localized Ischemia
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Pulmonary Fibrosis
- Rheumatoid Arthritis
- Vasular insufficiency
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Critical Limb Ischemia
- Erectile Dysfunction
- Liver failure
- Parkinson’s Disease
- Renal Failure
- Heart Failure
In the developing embryo, these cells differentiate into ectoderm, endoderm, and mesoderm. These give us rise to our spine, nerves, and all our organs. Adult stem cells are primarily used to repair, replenish, and regenerate tissues.
Historically, stem cells can come from a variety of tissues. These include umbilical cord, fetal tissue, adipose, or the best source bone marrow.
Bone marrow stem cells have the highest numbers of cells when collected and tested compared to all others. This is by far the preferred method of stem cell therapy because of sheer numbers and the fact that they are coming from your own body. This is called autologous therapy.
Stem cell research worldwide goes back over 100 years, the German research is documented back to 1860. There are a wide range of studies and articles describing its dramatic benefit for chronic diseases. Many of these publications are available for you to read on my website.
In performing stem cell therapy, extremely strict guidelines must be followed in coordination with a specialized protocol. This ensures accuracy, sterility, and quality control of the procedure. This information gathered from the procedure, including various forms of documentation can be used for medical publication at a later date. Physician notes and procedure as well as a questionnaire filled out by patients periodically are part of this process. This enables the highest level of procedure and documentation possible.
Initially, patients are examined, appropriate blood or other testing is done and reviewed and schedule is made to begin procedure. Typically, stem cell therapy is done within 2 weeks of initial consultation.
On the day of procedure, stem cells are extracted from Bone Marrow, this takes 5-10 minutes then patients sit and relax while the processing is done. It is then washed and centrifuged 3 times to allow separation of cells and harvest stem cells. At the end of the procedure, microscopic analysis can estimate the number of stem cells available for injection. Injection can be done either into joint, connective tissue, muscle or for all other organs or systemic diseases, intravenously. Intranasal technique also used for MS, Parkinsons, and Alzheimers disease. Intravenous and nebulizer is used for COPD, Emphysema, and Pumonary Fibrosis.
