Stem cells are incredible because they have the ability to repair damaged tissue and help restore your body. The application of stem cells is vast, and they can be used for various purposes based on their stem cell type.
Totipotent vs Pluripotent vs Multipotent
Stem cells can either be totipotent cells, pluripotent cells, or multipotent cells based on how they were obtained and the way they function when placed in your body. Even these three main categories can be further broken down based on the same factors. For instance, pluripotent stem cells can be subdivided into induced pluripotent stem cells and embryonic stem cells.
Totipotent stem cells
Totipotent stem cells are incredibly powerful, but they are also very rare. They can only be obtained from fertilized eggs, which makes them difficult to obtain and use in research. Additionally, totipotent stem cells have a limited lifespan and cannot be stored for long periods of time.
All stem cells carry the ability to heal your body, but pluripotent stem cells have significant advantages in their application. Out of the three main categories, multipotent stem cells have the least range and are less effective at improving the cell signaling process in all tissues of the body.
What do Totipotent Stem Cells Do?
Totipotent stem cells have the ability to give rise to all the cells in the body as well as the placenta and the embryo, and this is where they differ from pluripotent cells. Pluripotent stem cells can give rise to any cells from the three germ layers and are therefore placed to signal repair in all 220+ tissue types of the body.
Where Do Totipotent Stem Cells Come From?
Every stem cell has to be derived from a source. The only cells that are considered totipotent are those embryonic cells present in the first couple of cell divisions once fertilization has taken place.
What are Multipotent Stem Cells?
Multipotent stem cells are a type of stem cell that can differentiate into multiple types of cells, but not all cell types. They are limited to the specific tissue or organ they come from and cannot be used to create any other type of specialized cell. Multipotent stem cells are typically found in adult tissues such as bone marrow, fat, and muscle. These cells can be used to repair damaged tissue, but they are not as effective as pluripotent stem cells.
What are Pluripotent Stem Cells?
Pluripotent cells can be embryonic or induced, and the embryonic stem cells are obtained from a human embryo when the cell has not differentiated in any way. Pluripotent cells are unlike multipotent adult stem cells which are significantly limited in their function. Pluripotent stem cells can express the DNA of every cell type that is found in the human body so their ability and range to heal various ailments is a lot wider. They are able to signal repair in all 220+ tissue types of the body, rendering them the most comprehensive whole body rejuvenation therapy in the world.
These stem cells rejuvenate and repair the body and their vast range makes them effective for many different treatments. Your body will eliminate the inserted pluripotent stem cells in a few days and the new stem cells in your body will continue to heal the area of interest so you can rest assured your body is doing the healing and you’re not getting dependent on external medications for your recovery.
Pluripotent Stem Cell Therapy for Healing
Pluripotent stem cell therapy is a promising form of regenerative medicine that has the potential to heal damaged tissues and organs. Pluripotent stem cells are derived from embryonic or adult tissue and can be used to create new, healthy cells that can replace those lost due to injury or disease. This type of therapy has been used in clinical trials for treating conditions such as heart failure, diabetes and neurological disorders.
Stem cell therapy is a form of regenerative medicine and there are many different ailments that can be remedied through the help of this therapy. There is a lot of interest growing in the scientific community regarding stem cells because of their ability to help understand how diseases occur and because of their ability to help in the recovery process when dealing with diseased cells.
Pluripotent stem cells are undifferentiated and based on the type of treatment you are aiming for, you can have the cells placed in your bloodstream or injected locally in the area of damage. Your doctors will give you a checkup and let you know the best course of action for you based on your personal health condition and medical history, so you can benefit from optimal results.
Stem cell therapy can help you if you’re facing a wide range of diseases, including:
- Parkinson’s disease
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Heart disease
If you have tried conventional medical treatments and you don’t see the results you want, you may want to consider stem cell therapy. Contact us at the Stemaid Institute today to learn more about the pluripotent stem cell therapies we offer and to start a more holistic approach to healing your body.
