Neuropathy

Peripheral neuropathy is a serious condition that has the potential to take independence away from its sufferers. It can cause debilitating pain and discomfort that can ruin any chance of a patient’s normal life. Range of motion may be reduced in addition to the enjoyment of life. It is therefore imperative that effective treatments exist to help minimize a patient’s suffering.

If you have been affected by neuropathy, you understand how debilitating a condition that it is. Therefore, finding effective methods to alleviate pain is paramount to ensuring a patient’s quality of life. Specifically, diabetes is a common cause of peripheral neuropathy if your blood sugar remains consistently high.

Peripheral neuropathy is caused by damage to your peripheral nerves, which are responsible for sending signals between your brain (via the spinal cord) and the rest of your body such as your hands, feet, and so on. Your nerves may become damaged, forcing them to send erroneous signals to your brain. You may experience numbness, unending jabbing sensations, and extreme sensitivity with every touch. Most neuropathies, including peripheral neuropathy, respond well to pluripotent stem cell therapy. The positive effect of these stem cells on nerve repair was observed early on in our studies with Lyme patients who suffered from numbness, pins, and needles, or severe pain in various parts of their bodies. Most of them had the numbness or pain either cease completely or greatly reduce after our four week Lyme protocol.

Stem Cells and Peripheral Neuropathy

Currently, the traditional therapeutic options for peripheral neuropathy include medications and surgery. Most procedures and treatments are aimed at the management of resulting pain. Often, these involve lifestyle changes to help patients better manage their condition on a daily basis. No matter the severity, it is a progressive condition. Meaning, your neuropathy can get worse if left unmanaged.

Stem cells are revolutionizing our understanding of how to combat disease. These cells can differentiate into many different cell types whose DNA hasn’t been blocked or preset to be only one type of cell. This means that this DNA can express miRNAs that can target more than one cell. In this way, they may act as a healing agent that can reverse damage caused by a condition and replenish cells that are lost.

Research has shown that pluripotent stem cells may have the ability to boost the growth of nerve fibers and support the recovery of nerve function. In a study conducted to determine the therapeutic potential of iPSCs in neural regeneration, iPSCs showed to regenerate peripheral nerves.

Neuropathy at Stemaid Institute Baja California

Neuropathy linked to diabetes has also been treated at our institute with success. Patients with lingering post-shingle infection-pain reported noticeable improvement as well. Whether the neuropathy results from injuries, infection, metabolic problems, or exposure to toxins, pluripotent stem cells are able to significantly reverse the condition.

The mechanism of nerve repair as induced by stem cells is not yet fully understood but is believed to rely on the paracrine effects of the exosomes they release when injected into the patient’s blood flow. These exosomes are known to promote angiogenesis – the production of new blood vessels – and reduce inflammation, thanks to specific microRNA and growth factor proteins. More recently, studies showed that miRNA 222 and 133b are the ones involved in neurite outgrowth. All these factors contribute synergetically to restore the damaged nerve and its environment.

Our neuropathy treatment combines the use of pluripotent stem cells by IV and IM and their exosomes (Plurisomes™) – with a specific composition that favors the growth of vascular vessels and nerve myelin. A minimum of 2 weeks of treatment is recommended for lasting results.

What Stemaid Institute Can Do For You

Testimonial from Betsy H.

I went to Stemaid in San Jose del Cabo for 5 weeks in January of 2019 and again for 2 weeks in November of 2019. As a result of their caring and professional staff, I’ve had very positive results in a number of areas. I want to add that it’s still up and down. I still have good days and bad days but my good days are better than before and my bad days aren’t nearly as bad as they were. I don’t cry out in pain using my walker anymore. My brain is clearer and sharper. My body is still a work in progress but at least it’s progress! I’m so thankful that I was led to Stemaid and for the wonderful care I received from the staff there. I’m more hopeful than ever that I will be able to dance at my sons’ weddings.
