Why Stem Cell Therapy Is Quickly Gaining Popularity

By Wednesday May 31st, 2017Blog, Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy is a rapidly evolving and exciting area that has already shown considerable promise in managing many degenerative conditions. What makes it so popular is the fact that it is a non-surgical option that offers patients many benefits. Regenevéda in Chicago uses adult autologous adipose, peripheral blood or bone marrow-derived stem cells, or stem cells derived from umbilical cord blood.

How Are Adult Stem Cells Beneficial?

Autologous adult stem cells are derived from the same individual’s body. Adult stem cells are undifferentiated cells, found throughout the human body, that form after growth and development. Stem cells are the fundamental elements of life that can be found in all tissues of the body: connective tissues, muscle tissues, nervous tissues, and epithelial tissues. In living tissue, the main purpose of adult stem cells is to use cell division to repair and replace dying cells in order to regenerate damaged tissue. Adipose (fat) tissue has the highest concentration of stem cells and can produce billions of cells that will repair, replenish, and rejuvenate one’s body immediately.

Adult stem cells have the ability to self-renew, or divide, to replenish dying tissue of specialized cell types. They can be considered our own built-in repair systems that regenerate cells damaged by disease, injury, and everyday wear-and-tear. Once adult stem cells are administered to the body, they respond to inflammatory signals secreted by damage cells. Ultimately, adult stem cells replenish these damaged cells. Unlike traditional treatments offering less than optimal options, this revolutionary procedure gathers stem cells from their most abundant source, thus ensuring survival.

How Are Umbilical Stem Cells Beneficial?

Regenevéda is the first in the Chicagoland area to offer human umbilical stem cells as an office-based therapeutic option for all its treatments.  These cells have the advantage of youth, and experts agree that the younger the cells, the better, especially when treating debilitating disease. We use banked umbilical stem cells that are immunologically evasive so as not to require tissue typing or immune suppression.  And because we keep these cells on hand, you don’t have to wait. Thawing the frozen cells and administering them takes about 60-90 minutes in the office, depending on what we are treating. While Insurance does not cover the costs of this treatment, immediate financing is available for qualified individuals.
