What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cell therapy, also known as regenerative medicine, promotes the repair response of diseased, dysfunctional or injured tissue using stem cells or their derivatives. Having been lauded as a potential cure for everything under the sun—from auto-immune diseases, cancer, to asthma and even blindness, stem cell treatments have been in the news in recent years.

The truth of the matter is, the use and possibilities of stem cell treatments still remain largely unexplored. Researchers continue to unearth exciting and life-changing uses for these remedying and restoring cells.In Spanish, stem cells are referred to as the mother cell because of their malleability and innate facility to zero in on a person’s most immediate health concern. Treatments with stem cells have been used for years in equine medicine. A peculiar incident in horse racing illuminates the self-directed nature of these cells. Just like a mother can innately respond to the needs of her offspring, these cells know what location is most in need of care.

Once, while treating a Thoroughbred with an injured leg with stem cells, the veterinarian decided to track the cells, intending to see them quickly arrived at the leg and begin healing. He was astonished to discover that instead, the cells made a beeline for the horse’s liver. Upon scanning the organ, a previously undiagnosed case of sclerosis of the liver was revealed. Thankfully, the imported pluripotent cells were able to work their magic and to repair damaged cells and regenerate new healthy cells in the horse’s liver with as much alacrity and efficiency as it could other areas of the body.

Although research is ongoing and their full potential still unchartered, people in the know have already become early adapters to stem cell remedies. Just as the wealthy may have been making calls on cell phones back in the 1980s before the rest of us, the elite and well-to-do have been freezing their children’s stem cells for years now, thereby preemptively arming their sons and daughters with potential cures (right from their own bodies) for a myriad of ailments.

Today, sports stars use stem cell treatments for relief of joint pain and chronic asthma. Children suffering from scleroderma, in which up to 80% of their skin’s surface are tragically covered in open sores, are having their thin skin healed after the injection of stem cells derived from their own healthy skin.

Similarly, a man who had lost sight in one of his eyes 30 years ago in a chemical accident recently had stem cells from his healthy, sighted eye injected into his damaged, blinded eye. Thankfully, the ‘mother cells’ immediately got to work rectifying the ailment – repairing the eye’s damaged cells which had caused the blindness and quickly reproducing new healthy cells. Today, that man is blessed with full sight in both eyes once again.

The benefits of stem cell treatment are as varied as the health issues that plague us and have already brought great relief to people suffering from:

  • Chronic inflammatory diseases
  • Auto-Immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, myasthenia gravis
  • Asthma and other lung diseases
  • Joint Injuries
  • Undesirable effects of aging such as collagen loss, memory loss and hair loss
  • Diabetes – help with wound healing
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Psoriasis

Our body’s natural state is one of health and harmony with all organs and cell processes working effectively. Unfortunately, an issue with one part of the body can lead to distemper in other areas as well. A restorative, therapeutic stem cell treatment can repair damaged networks and restore the efficacy and functioning to our bodies in untold ways.

As in the case of the race horse, it may even alleviate problems we don’t even know we have. Today, celebrities, world leaders and prominent politicians are on the receiving end of this cutting-edge technology. However, just as it took a good fifty years for the use antibiotics to spread to the masses, it is expected that stem cell treatments will continue to revolutionize the field of medicine and healing in in the future untold ways.

How does it work?

The specialized cells can then be implanted into a person. For example, if the person has heart disease, the cells could be injected into the heart muscle. The healthy transplanted heart muscle cells could then contribute to repairing defective heart muscle.

Researchers have already shown that adult bone marrow cells guided to become heart-like cells can repair heart tissue in people, and more research is ongoing.

The benefits of stem cell treatment are as varied as the health issues that plague us and have already brought great relief to people suffering from:

  • Chronic inflammatory diseases
  • Auto-Immune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis, myasthenia gravis
