Regenerative Medicine V. Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell research has been at the forefront of headlines for decades now. Since its inception in 1981, stem cell research has led to many innovations in the field of healing and wellness. When applying cell therapy to the body, there source of the cells to your body vastly differ.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cells are the basic building blocks of the human body. They are undifferentiated cells that have the potential to develop into different cell types. When a patient receives stem cell therapy, cells are extracted from the patient’s own body and used to treat the illness or disease at hand. They are essential to restoring function and health in the presence of degeneration of the cells, structures, and systems of the body. As such, stem cells can play a unique role in holistic treatment and regenerative therapies.
Regenerative medicine has seen a growth in treating injuries and delivering pain relief. When regenerative cellular tissue is injected to the body, these cells are derived from another host’s body, specifically Umbilical allografts. There is no harm to the mother and child when the umbilical cords are extracted. The benefit of receiving regenerative allografts is the extraction of a higher yield count of the cells as well as the growth factors found in the cytokines which include interferon and interleukin. These cytokines greatly reduce inflammation and regulate the body’s immune system, giving the patient a boost in healing and pain relief.
