Stem Cell Therapy for Aging, Could This be the Magic Bullet?

I have been observing the advent of this thing called Stem Cell Therapy for health maintenance and disease reversal for a while now.

My original purpose of this blog was to offer health care and age-reversing technologies to people. I believe this article that outlines this new technology may be the most important article that I could possibly share.

Stem Cell Therapy for Aging, Could This be the Magic Bullet?
Stem Cell in a nutshell!!

I hope you get something out of it and use this data to help you and your loved ones to lead a better and healthier life.

This is a relativity short article I want to share the overall so you are aware that this technology exists and can do your own research.

There will be links spread through this article to give you references that you can independently do the research yourself.

Claims that their products can make that despite the fact that the skincare industry our skin is healthy and prevent signs of aging, nothing can stop it in reality. Aging is a very natural yet complex process. Our everyday lifestyle, genetics, environmental factors, and normal wear and tear take its toll in the form of aging.

And as people grow old, they suffer from diseases like arthritis, Alzheimer’s, spinal cord injury, COPD, etc. Luckily, scientists have developed a new fix in the form of Stem Cell for Aging.

So, here, we are going to learn how this new technology will make our lives better.

The body and stem cells

Over the years, the cells in the human body progressively get damaged and they eventually die. And the problem is, the rate of replacement of the cells that we have lost is very slow.

As there is no compensation for the dead cells, the signs of aging start to appear. Due to the loss, common health issues like impaired vision, impaired hearing, loss of muscle strength & bone, decreased immunity, inefficient metabolism, etc. will start to surface.

As you can get a brief idea that aging cells contribute to various diseases in our body, the aging needs to be prevented or slowed down. Luckily, stem cell research has made it possible to form regenerative medicine therapies.

Gradually, the technology is reaching the whole world and it gives every one of us a hope that we have found a good solution for many problems of life.

What are Stem Cells ?

Before we get to the main part learning about the technology of Stem Cell for Aging, we need to understand what are stem cells and how they can keep us healthy for as long as possible.

Stem cells are the building blocks of our bodies. They are the essence of body regeneration as these cells have the ability to change, evolve, duplicate, and adapt to other cells that are found in the body.

With the potential to develop into many cells in the body, Stem cells are a very useful tool. These cells stay dormant in the bone marrow and fat stores.

As any cell of the body gets damaged, the proteins in our immune system send signals to the cells to activate them. Then the cells start working and take different forms to heal the damaged cells.

Stem Cells

It is Mesenchymal Stem Cells (mesenchymal stem cells are cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types, including bone cells, cartilage cells, muscle cells, and fat cells which give rise to marrow tissue) that are used for treatments of aging and other age-related problems like arthritis.

At present, MSCs are used widely in the treatment of pathological conditions and disorders including heart diseases to cancer.

As they are the core factor in the skin, muscle, cartilage, and bone regeneration, the technology of Stem Cell for Aging seems pretty impressive.

Let’s explore the various facets of this technology and see if stem cells are the magic bullets that would pierce every disease and break it down for humans.

Some Facts You Should Know:

As many clinics all around the globe are offering Stem Cell treatments, there are some things that you should know. The technology is not entirely new as it has been in existence for more than a decade now.

But the new developments and research have shown that this might be the answer to our future problems. Let’s take a look at other interesting and common unknown facts about Stem cells.

1: Each Stem Cells Have A Different Purpose:

Yes, people, there are four different types of stem cells and every one of them plays a different role in our body. There are embryonic stem cells that only exist in the early stages of development.

Then there are adult stem cells that are formed during fetal development and they remain in our body throughout life.

The thing is our body uses a different type of tissue-specific stem cell for every particular purpose.

More Stem Cells details!!

For example, the blood-forming stem cells in the bone marrow regenerate blood and the neural stem cells generate brain cells only. And these specific cells can’t perform the task of the other.

So, when you hear that some clinic is offering to use stem cells then make sure that you get to know the technology first.

 

2: Single Stem Cell Does Not Work On Multitude of Different Unrelated Conditions:

As we mentioned above, each stem cell has a particular function in the body and they can’t work in any way you want. That’s why; it is highly unlikely that a single type of stem cell treatment will be able to treat multiple conditions such as diabetes and Parkinson’s disease.

You can expect the Stem Cell for aging to work on other conditions. As the underlying causes of the conditions are different, therefore different types of stem cells will be needed.

Therefore, it is critical that the cell type that is being used is appropriate for the specific condition. The embryonic stem cells certainly have the potential to be used as a treatment for a range of diseases.

3: There Are Very Few Widely Accepted Stem Cell Therapies:

There are various clinical trials held all over the globe to see if the treatments work. While there are still debates going on in the world, some therapies are readily available for everyone.

Stem Cells close up!

The widely accepted treatment with stem cells is blood stem cell transplantation which is used to deal with blood and immune system problems.

Some bone, skin, and corneal diseases can also be treated with their help. At present, Stem Cell for Aging is the most common treatment which is considered safe and effective by the medical community.

4: Stem Cells Needs To Be Instructed To Behave Specifically:

When we are using the bone marrow cells for transplant, they do exactly what they are supposed to do. But for other conditions, we have to make sure that the cells behave in a particular way. And unfortunately, it is the biggest challenge for medical scientists.

You can use stem cells without any difficulty, but imagine that you want to treat neurological conditions. Then the cells you need to the implant have to grow into specific types of neurons. To work, the cells have to know which other neurons have to be connected and how to establish the connections.

As the scientists are still working on a way to figure out how to control the cells to do what we want, the treatment is far behind the schedule.

5: Stem Cells Are Not Always Safe:

This is a very hard and bitter truth, but if you think that the stem cells that doctors acquire from your body will be safe for you, then you are mistaken. Every medical procedure has risks involved.

Once the cells leave your body, they are subjected to various manipulations that might change the characteristics of the cells.

So, ultimately, your body’s immune system might confuse your own cells will foreign cells and attack them. And if somehow, they get contaminated with other bacteria, viruses, or pathogens then you will have a bigger risk.

So, when you are opting out treatment with stem cells for aging or for any other diseases, make sure that you are safe. Never trust the claims of a clinic about any treatment unless they have physical proof that the treatment works.

Benefits of Stem Cell Treatment for Aging:

The main field where stem cells have proven its value is the Anti-aging treatments. It is a modern approach and so effective that it can even reverse the process in humans. With the treatment of Stem Cell for Aging, you will have the following benefits: Youthful appearance with reduced signs of aging
Reduced tiredness and fatigue
Relief from aches, stiffness of joints, and other forms of muscle pain.

Exercise really helps!!

Greater muscle strength with improved energy, stamina, and vitality. And these are just a few of the benefits.

The scientists see a whole new medical future for stem cells. And we can only hope that they succeed as the stem cells might be able to help every human being to live a much healthier and good life.

Why Choose Stem Cell Treatment Instead of Traditional Treatments?

Do you have any idea how much a knee replacement surgery costs? Well, to be exact, the amount is around $49,500 in the United States where the doctors use state of the art technology.

Stem Cell Therapy for Aging
Traditional treatment!

But if you use Stem Cell Therapy, the cost gets reduced to only $3000 to $5000 per knee.

The science behind Stem Cell Therapy

There is no doubt that this major difference in the treatment would help a lot of people who are suffering from problems like arthritis, joint and muscle pain, etc.

And even the recovery time after the stem cell treatment is good. If you had treatment of Stem Cell for Aging, then you will be able to leave the hospital in a couple of days. And it will take only a few weeks for your skin to reflect the recovery signs.

But the exact recovery time is hard to calculate as every disease has a different effect on every single human being. At last, we know for sure that stem cells can prevent age-related degeneration in a safe and effective manner.

If I could get a little personal here, this whole topic of stem cell therapy has me very excited. I have advanced osteoarthritis in both knees especially my left knee.

Stem Cell Therapy for Aging
Karate is great exercise!

While  I never had any frank injuries in my life but between thirty-one years of rather rigorous chiropractic practice and about ten years of karate in my younger days,

all of which added a lot of stress to my knee joints has left me with some pain and stiffness in both of my knees. If I sit for a while and then get up my left knee especially is quite painful and stiff. After a few steps, the stiffness and pain reduce but I don’t see this getting better over time.

Now that I have more time on my hands one my fondest goals are to get back to my beloved martial arts, but in my present state that may be difficult.

I had bilateral knee x rays taken a few years ago and my suspicions were borne out. In both knees, the joint cartilages looked to be at least 80% gone. And in thinking about the handling of this situation I thought that total knee replacement surgery would be the answer.

I would ask my patients, who had this type of surgery done and their experiences and it was mixed. So I was stuck in a maybe, maybe yes, maybe no.

After watching some of these videos I shared I will explore this avenue for my health’s sake.

Below have a list of links to a series of youtube videos on a Stem Cell  Clinic in Columbia SA with testimonials. It appears to be on the cutting edge of stem cell treatment. Bye, the way, I have no vested interest in this Clinic but it looks to be very credible.

Below are sample youtube videos. If you are interested just type in “stem cell” in Youtube’s search bar you will get more returns than you know what to do with.

Pay attention to the difference between the number of stem cells that are used here and the freshness here versus in the states, That seems to a key factor in their results.
