The effects of pluripotent stem cell treatment can help improve the health of patients suffering from various debilitating conditions, but how long do the stem cell injections actually last?
This is a question we get all the time and the answer is multifaceted. Improvement post stem cell procedure may be swift and occur within the first week and continue long-term. Improvement may also be slow and gradual and peak at 3-6 months post-treatment. The results vary patient to patient, case by case.
In our clinical experience with thousands of people, our clinical team has identified certain factors that determine how pluripotent stem cells exert their reparative and reprogramming action on all tissues of the body - 1. toxic burden of the body 2. vitality of the patient 3. physical & psychological environment patients return to after leaving our stem cell therapy clinic.
1. Toxic burden of the body
Pluripotent stem cells regulate and restore systemic health, but the accumulated toxins in the adult body get in the way. Toxins are chemicals and stressors that prevent your physiology from regulating and restoring normal health. They come in many forms, from the outside (exogenous) and from within your body (endogenous). Toxins can be man-made (metals, pesticides, phthalates, PCBs, electromagnetic radiation) or natural (mold toxins, bacterial toxins, parasites, metabolic waste such as histamines). Natural sources of physiological stressors are considered as toxins. Man-made sources are considered as toxicants. Irregardless of the specific definitions, the body is overburdened and we work diligently to remove these obstacles to allow repair to occur more efficiently.
At the start of all our Stemaid Programs, we identify the toxins and the stressors that are preventing the short term and long term healing and set a plan to removed these obstacles to healing from the start. In this manner, the body is being detoxed and the blocks removed so that the pluripotent stem cells and their signaling factors, Plurisomes™, can engage all their repair and reprogramming faculties more efficiently in all tissues of the body. The less toxic load, the more efficient the repair, the regeneration and the cellular reprogramming.
2. Vitality of the patient
In regenerative medicine, we believe that the human body has an intrinsic capacity to self-regulate and self-repair. Moment to moment, your physiology is working hard to neutralize and eliminate toxins and to restore balance and normal function. In chronic illness, in all medical conditions, and especially in degenerative conditions, this natural mechanism breaks down and you may have an impaired capacity to repair and regenerate. The vitality of the body, the ability to bounce back to a healthy set point, the ability of functional homeostasis to reset to regenerative and repair mode is impaired and affect the short term and long term function of the pluripotent stem cells.
When the vitality is impaired and the current status of your medical condition is serious, we see an initial increase in inflammatory markers during the treatment. This is a positive stressor on the body, a eu-stress, that allows the system to repair immediate damage and to jolt the homeostasis into regenerative mode. This initial pro-inflammatory stage can feel uncomfortable. Patients may experience fatigue, pain, and overall weakness. This is to be expected when the body is healing and when the functional set point is shifting all metabolic processes in the body away from disease and towards a more healthy and all new set point.
The initial increase in inflammatory markers can last up to 2-3 weeks post treatment, or in some cases longer. After this time, the butterfly effect of the pluripotent signaling begins to take effect and all organ systems begin to settle into this new and more healthy physiological milieu. After 3-6 months, the eu-stress settles and the biological markers show an improvement in inflammatory picture, in organ health and in epigenetic changes showing a reprogramming effect of pluripotency.
3. Physical and psychological environment (upon return)
Stem cell therapy recovery time and success depends not only of the body of the patient, but also on the mindset and the physical environment that the patient returns to. Our beliefs, our traumas, our paradigms have a direct effect on our functional homeostasis and reparative capacity. Our homes, our neighborhoods, our cities can pose a direct threat to recovery and continual improvement in health status. For this reason, we recommend that patients have psychological support upon return, so that the positive healing mindset that we put into motion at the Stemaid Institute continues. We also recommend that the patient and immediate family take a close inspection of the living and work environment that the patient is returning to. It's key that it's healthy, positive, and aligned with the most genuine and authentic lifestyle for the patient in the healing phase.
So, the initial question: How long do stem cell injections last?
The answer depends on the toxic burden of our lives, the vitality and reparative capacity of our body, and on the psychological and physical environment of where and how we live. The pluripotent stem cells and their potent and comprehensive signaling factors are designed to signal repair, regeneration and reprogramming in all 220+ tissues of the body. That means they are capable of restoring normal function in all areas of the body, at any age. The limiting factors to their activity and immediate and long-term action is the terrain of our body, our overall health, our psychology and our living environment and lifestyle. At Stemaid institute, we support all these areas of our patients' lives. We want these world's most potent and comprehensive stem cells to thrive in your body and to do their intrinsic work at their finest. That is our therapeutic goal. Your body, your health, your happiness, your whole life, thriving on all levels.
RELATED FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
How long does the stem cell treatment last for most people?
For the majority of people, the effects of the pluripotent stem cells are felt most potently weeks to months post treatment. When injected, the stem cells release signaling factors into the bloodstream and begin a gradual process of epigenetic changes that can take time to take effect. For more immediate effect, we also administer Plurisomes™, the pluripotent exosomes filled with ready to act biological ingredients, and plethora of other supportive IVs. In this way, patients feel reparative effect within days as well as for months post-treatment.
Are there any adverse effects?
We mitigate potential risk and other risk factors by making sure patients have had a meal before injection, are well hydrated, receive supportive treatments and that safety of stem cell production and administration remains top priority in our laboratories and our clinical settings.
Risk of infection (common infection, bacterial infections) is no different than for all IV therapy types. As long as sterile technique is used in production and administration, it is not a concern.
What type of stem cells are used in stem cell therapy?
While most regenerative medicine stem cell clinics around the world use adult stem cells, more specifically mesenchymal stem cells, at Stemaid Institute we use the most potent and comprehensive type of stem cell, the pluripotent stem cells. This cell line originates from the inner cell mass of a 100-200 cell human blastocyst. Out of all the cell types, the pluripotent specialized cells allow for full body repair, rejuvenation and reprogramming of all 220+ tissue types of our body. Cell therapies include injections of stem cells, stem cell transplants, intradermal, intravenous and intramuscular stem cell procedures.
What are the benefits of stem cell therapy?
There are many types of stem cells being used in clinics around the world. The majority of them use adult mesenchymal cells (MSC), that are best fitted damaged tissue in orthopedic conditions, since they signal growth factors and repair factors suited best for the 8 tissue types mostly present in musculoskeletal areas. Conditions that benefit from mesenchymal stem cells are joint pain, arthritic knee pain, knee pain, cartilage damage, cartilage defect, soft tissue injury. MSC are great for pain relief and pain management resulting from musculoskeletal injury.
The type of cell we use at Stemaid institute is the pluripotent embryonic stem cell. These types of cells are unique in that they signals repair in damaged cells of all 220+ tissue types of the body. So the benefits are many, since it can repair damage and reverse biological aging in all tissues of the body. Many conditions benefit, including aging, degenerative conditions, autoimmune conditions, arthritic disease, heart disease, neurodegenerative diseases, nerve disease, neurological disorders and so on.
What is the duration of stem cell treatment?
At Stemaid Institute, we offer long-term pluripotent stem cell treatment programs. This approach to treatment has been developed by our scientific and clinical teams for over 15 years, with consistent beneficial effects seen in thousands of patients. What we have found in all the years of therapeutics is that repair and reprogramming-induced rejuvenation with pluripotency is effective and safe.
A single treatment is not the most effective treatment in biological medicine. Biology and functional medicine needs time to shift and reprogram to a healthy state. The best treatment plan according to scientific studies and our clinical experience is when the stem cells are administered in pulsing doses daily for 2-5 weeks. This is when we see best improvement in all parameters of health and metabolic profiles.
Are there any studies showing efficacy of stem cell procedures?
Scientific literature is filled with thousands of studies assessing stem cell treatment efficacy in human cell lines and animal studies. The most recent studies in reprogramming medicine are briefly reviewed here.
At Stemaid Institute, we are now in the midst of clinical trials to assess the health parameters of daily pulsing doses of pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes™. The best candidate of stem cell procedure in these clinical studies is a healthy individual, over the age of 50, with no chronic conditions. The results coming out of these early-stage clinical trials are already promising.
