Pluripotent stem cell therapy is transforming the field of medicine and its use is rapidly growing.
Stem cell treatments are or commonly done to reduce joint pain, increase motion, and flexibility. The use of Embryonic Stem Cells goes beyond these skeleton applications as they are able to trigger repair in all organs and target systemic medical condition types like chronic disease, cardiovascular diseases, neurodegenerative diseases, diabetes, COPD, kidney failure, autoimmune diseases and diseases of aging.
At the Stemaid Institute Baja California, our scientists and health professional clinicians have pioneered the field of stem cell research and clinical application, by showing how embryonic pluripotent stem cells can take benefits of stem cell therapy for human disease to the next level.
Pluripotent versus Adult Stem Cells
Before we explain some of the benefits of this therapy, it may be helpful to know a little bit more about stem cell basics and how stem cells are helping restore health even for those who suffer from ¨hard to treat¨ conditions:
Adult Multipotent & Mesenchymal Stem Cells:
When we think about stem cells we often ignore that there is a huge diversity of them. It was recently proven that every one of our organs holds a reserve of specialized stem cells which are their individual repair kit; there are cardiac stem cells within the heart, neural stem cells in the brain, pulmonary stem cells in the lungs. The fate of these stem cells, also called adult stem cells, is to be released in case of injury and replaced the damaged cells. A massive release of cardiac stem cells within the heart occurs in case of a heart attack for example.
Such adult stem cells are commonly harvested from a patient’s own bone marrow or fat (adipose) tissue. These are autologous stem cell transplants, meaning from your own body, which is beneficial in that there is no chance of body rejection. However, they are limited in their beneficial effects, focusing on damaged tissue in skin, tendons, bones, and conjunctive tissues. It is important to note that with fat stem cell transplant, the number of stem cells available in the future from fat, specifically, will be reduced. With bone marrow transplant, on the other hand, is a hematopoietic stem cell transplant, and is a part of effective treatments for blood Because of the limited capability of adult stem cells, the Stemaid Institute solely uses embryonic stem cells.
Embryonic Pluripotent Stem Cells:
Pluripotent stem cells do not have the adult mesenchymal stem cells limitations. They are able to trigger repair in every organ. It is also important to note that with advancements in stem cell science, it is no longer necessary to retrieve eggs or sperm to produce the blastocyst needed to produce these embryonic stem cells. Our scientists are able to produce an egg from a skin cell. They are also able to fuse such an egg with a fibroblast (skin cell) to produce an embryo. In other words our Embryonic stem cells are produced by transforming skin cells into embryonic stem cells following several advanced scientific steps. No life is being produced or destroyed. There is only a transformation of old living cells into young and more effective ones, with the potential to manage your condition.
Benefits of Stem Cell Therapy
With so many treatment options out there, you may be wondering what benefits choosing the Stemaid Institute Baja California’s stem cell therapy provides. The Stemaid Institute is the only institute that uses embryonic pluripotent stem cells for whole body repair and rejuvenation, in a peaceful resort. These cells are the only ones able to trigger repair in all organs instead of being limited to a few organs like adult stem cells are. They are also able to turn the biological clock back which is a unique feature of the pluripotent stem cells. Additionally, because stem cell therapy utilizes biologic material, the general benefits include minimal risk, minimal recovery time, no side effects, and minimal worry at our state of the art facility in San Jose del Cabo, Mexico. Our specialists use embryonic stem cells derived from a blastocyst that is either donated or cultured from a skin cell, to heal and treat disease. ESCs have a powerful healing potential that targets a number of “hard-to-treat” diseases, some which include:
- Multiple sclerosis
- Brain injury
- Heart disease
- Cerebral palsy
- Autoimmune diseases
- Blood conditions
Embryonic Pluripotent Stem Cells also have systemic functional effects, such as:
- Immune response regulation
- Decreased risk of infections
- Chronic pain, pain relief, pain reduction
- reprogramming of body organs to a younger biological age
- cellular rejuvenation of all types of cells (somatic cells, blood cells, immune cells, white blood cells, brain cells, nerve cells, heart tissues cells, connective tissue cells, and all specialized cells and all types of stem cells in the human body)
Limitations of stem cell therapy:
The only limitations of stem cell therapy we have clinically found is in cases of diseases involving severe genetic defect. All stem cells provide epigenetic reprogramming, not genetic. They can repair DNA somewhat, but in the clinical setting, we have found that if a condition is genetic, we can improve quality of life and health overall, but the condition will not be resolved fully. It's just the nature of genetic conditions.
Safety of Stem Cell Therapy:
Risk of complications is minimal to non-existent. Of course, every medical procedure carries some risk, but in 10+ years of clinical applications of embryonic stem cells, we've had no serious adverse effects. Embryonic stem cells are anti-tumorigenic, immuno-modulatory, their anti-inflammatory effects are potent, the paracrine effects of their exosomes are highly reparative for all 220+ tissues of the body. Pluripotent regenerative cell therapy has an impeccable safety record.
Our experts believe in using pluripotent stem cells in whole body rejuvenation, for lasting health and creating a treatment plan that is personalized to you. Contact our experts today to learn more about how embryonic stem cells could help you.
