What is Stem-cell Therapy?

Stem-cell therapy is becoming the treatment option of choice for the regeneration of organs.  Regenerative medicine is a field of medical research developing treatments to repair or re-grow specific tissue in the body. There is a rising body of studies that reveals the power of mesenchymal stem cells. Stem cells are multipotent stromal cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types, [1] including: osteoblasts (bone cells), chondrocytes (cartilage cells), myocytes (muscle cells) and adipocytes (fat cells). This phenomenon has been documented in specific cells and tissues in living animals and their counterparts growing in laboratory tissue culture. Most Human Tissue has a rapid turnover rate. It is the availability of stem cells that assists in the process.

Regenerative Medicine at Its Best- How does it work?

Stem-cells can be derived from the bodies own bone marrow and adipose tissue and if available from umbilical cord. However recently cells derived from Amniotic source have show to be the most effective, reliable, safe and least invasive. Approximately 200,000 Amniocentesis are performed in the US alone. Most of the time the tissue fluid is discard but now live stem-cells are isolated from this tissue sample and many patients decide to permanently bank this tissue.

Once these concentrated cells are redeployed, the body’s own innate wisdom takes over. Signaled by inflammation, stem cells home in on damaged tissues, where they produce growth factors and other compounds necessary for repair and regeneration.

Some of them, such as vascular endothelial growth factors and angiogenesis mediators, stimulate the production of new blood vessels to restore circulation and oxygen supply. Others prevent apoptosis (programmed cell death) or boost the formation of various cell types. Another stem cell benefit is that they curb excessive inflammation and help regulate the immune response, which is key to the therapy’s benefits for inflammatory conditions and autoimmune diseases.

Applications for Stem-Cell Therapy:

1. degenerative Joint repair

AVOID TOTAL KNEE REPLACEMENT!. Amniotic Stem Cells Tissue is ideal for the the restoration of damaged or arthritic joints. Adipose tissue stem cells, cortisone injections, and other medicines offer a temporary cure for some of these injuries or diseases; while amniotic stem cells have the capability to restore the regenerative tissue and bone back to its original condition. One of the prime components of amniotic stem cell therapy is the hyaluronic acid that is known to lubricate your joints and tendons, easing pain and restoring your mobility. Several weeks after injection of the amniotic stem cells a significant improvement in cartilage growth, ligament and tendon stability can be noticed.

2. Inflammatory arthritis

Inflammatory arthritis can now be treated with stem cell therapy. Stem cell samples contain hematopoietic stem cells among a multitude of cytokines and growth factors. The therapy is applied in one simple IV and relieve from joint inflammation is usually noticed with a few days.

3. Neurodegenerative disoders: Neuropathy, Stroke recovery, Parkinson's Disease

Stem-cells can be applied locally and systemically to affect large muscle groups and nerve systems to be restored. Recovery time from Neuropathy, Stroke injury can be improved with the use of Stem-cells and in combination with Acupuncture. A Reduction in Parkinson's symptoms can be achieved. For Stroke Recovery we are offering programs including Chinese Herbal Medicine, Electro-Acupuncture, Bioness and now Stem Cell Therapy.

4. PROSTATE DISEASE

Stem-cells have shown to shrink Benign Enlarged Prostate Conditions. Forty per cent of men in their 50s, and 75 per cent of men in their 70s, experience uncomfortable urinary symptoms caused by BPH, and treatment options are very limited. The prostate can be a very difficult tissue to target with drugs, supplements and herbs. The main etiology for BPH is fibrosis and weakening of the muscular tissue in the prostate. When Acupuncture and Chinese Herbal treatment alone have little effect or when the prostate is larger than 2 times its original size, local Stem-Cell Therapy becomes an important treatment option. In theory stem cells act as a reserve pool to initiate a backwards differentiation of the hyperplasia of prostatic stromal and epithelial cells, The turnover of cells allows the weakened muscle to be replaced and the fibrosis undergoing repair.  [7]

5. Respiratory Disease

In Orthodox Medicine there is little or no treatment available for COPD, Asthma and Emphysema. Currently no modes of effective treatment are available for ILD or emphysema. Being anti-inflammatory, immunomodulatory, and regenerative in nature, the administration of mesenchymal stem cells has shown the capacity to control immune dysfunction and inflammation in the lung [5]. There is no cure for Asthma, the mere management of the symptoms leads to increased inflammation and damage of the lung tissue. Stem cell therapy contributes to the regeneration of lung tissue, which leads to a significant reduction in the incidence of attacks and their duration and stops asthma attacks. Stem cell therapy in patients with asthma increases resistance to colds and infectious diseases reducing the frequency of exacerbations. It reduces the allergic response of the organism to allergens including house dust, animal dander, pollen and foods.

Why is NATUREWORKS offering Stem-Cell Therapy?

Stem-cell therapy has been show to be very effective in recent years. Now it has become evident that if combined with Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine the effect of the stem cells is potentiated. For difficult Medical Problems the combination of Chinese Medicine with Stem-cell therapy offers a rapid and effective therapy option. The two most significant reasons for disease are:

  1. Blood stasis: a blockage in blood supply and other lymph or interstitial body fluids
  2. Lack of capability for regeneration of tissue.

Both etiologies can now be treated effectively with Chinese Medicine and Stem-Cell-Therapy. Amniotic stem cell therapy is more powerful than stem cells derived from bone marrow or adipose. In addition this source of stem cells comes with a natural boost of over 200 growth factors and cytokines that stimulate cellular regeneration. Stem cells derived from your own bone marrow or adipose tissue are often not effective due to their "age" and only a small percentage of the derived cells is truly active.
 

Please inquire with NatureWorks for a consultation and further details concerning other Medical conditions.

 

IS Stem-cell therapy Safe?

So far over 10,000 injections have been used on patients without any cases of adverse side effects. Amniotic stem cells are collected from amniotic fluid extracted during a genetic amniocentesis, a prenatal diagnosis procedure typically performed during the 2nd trimester of pregnancy. For the purpose of stem cell preservation, a small amount of the fluid withdrawn for genetic analysis is saved in a collection container for transport to a processing and storage facility. Collection of the sample causes no change to the standard amniocentesis procedure and therefore adds no additional risk to the mother. In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration regulates amniotic stem cells under the category of “Human Cells, Tissues, and Cellular and Tissue Based-Products.

Patients who receive stem cell therapy through us can receive both systemic and targeted administration methods:

  • Systemic IV infusion of their stem cells to fully saturate the entire body.

  • Localized injections of solutions with less than 1ml into targeted muscles and limbs

  • NO PAINFUL EXTRACTION OR ADMINISTRATION PROCEDURES INVOLVED!
