How Your Own Stem Cells Can Promote Healing
Because of recent medical news, the words “stem cell” invoke images of nefarious people clandestinely harvesting embryonic cells. This is not legal, and certainly is neither endorsed nor practiced by our professionals at East Valley Naturopathic Doctors or those at Global Health. We understand that a person’s own stem cells can be extracted from their own body and utilized to improve their own health. Our methods are legal, ethical and life-changing.
This incredible advancement in natural healing means that stem cells can be harvested from a patient’s fatty tissue and reintroduced into that patient’s body. These stem cells have the ability to travel to areas of the body that have damaged tissues. The stem cells can then either instigate healing or actually transform into the type of cells needed to repair an injured area. The possible benefits of this kind of treatment are staggering!
Because the FDA has yet to approve this therapy, it cannot be said that stem cells are used specifically for the treatment of any disease. However, empirical evidence shows that this therapy is beneficial to people who suffer from many different illnesses, such as:
- Neurological diseases
- Chronic joint pain
- Autoimmune conditions
- Heart disease
- Pulmonary issues
Another amazing part of stem cell therapy is that it is a relatively quick procedure that requires little downtime. During the harvesting of stem cells, a person is fully awake and the area of fat extraction is numbed. It takes only 20 minutes to remove the tissue, using only a couple of tiny, 2 mm incisions. Afterward, the extraction area requires no sutures and will heal naturally. The stem cells are then extracted from the fatty tissue and, without being exposed to air, are reintroduced into the body. The entire procedure is done in a clinic and is begun and completed in a matter of only a few hours.
This minimally invasive procedure has the potential to vastly improve the lives of the patients who utilize this exciting therapy option.
