Facts About Kidney Failure And Disease

More than 661,000 Americans have kidney failure. When these critical organs are healthy and working, they are essential in helping the entire body keep clean, strong, well-fueled and running properly. That’s why kidney failure (also known as renal disease) is such a high health risk. Renal disease prevents impurities from being cleansed from the body. Waste accumulates and wreaks havoc.

Have You Or A Loved One Experienced Kidney Failure? This Information Can Help.

familyThe kidneys’ chief purpose is to help detoxify the body

We’re all born with two kidneys. Each is approximately fist-sized. The kidneys sit beside the spine, one to the left and the other to the right, near the waist and just beneath the ribs. The kidneys’ chief purpose is to help detoxify the body by filtering out the waste products it produces.

Kidneys’ role in health goes beyond filtering waste

These can include a variety of waste products such as excess fluids, leftover particulates in the digestive track, and surplus sodium and electrolytes, to name a few. But they also play a function in helping control blood pressure, removing drugs and other toxins, regulating hormones, and even in maintaining healthy, strong bones.

Little wonder, then, that kidney failure is never taken lightly in the medical field. The National Stem Cell Institute (NSI), one of the leading regenerative medical clinics in the United States, has seen many cases of renal disease. Waste products and the build-up of fluids, nausea, difficulty in thinking clearly, and fluctuating levels in blood pressure are all telltale signs of kidney failure.

The basic causes of kidney failure include:

  • A sudden, serious drop in blood flow to the kidneys
  • Heavy blood loss, an injury, or a bad infection known as sepsis that reduces blood flow to the kidneys
  • Insufficient fluid intake (dehydration)

But all of these can be the result of any number of illnesses, injuries, and chronic conditions. In the U.S. today, diabetes and hypertension (abnormally high blood pressure) are frequently the main culprits behind kidney failure. However, these two are by no means the only promoters of renal disease. An unhealthy diet or high levels of inflammation within the body have also been connected to kidney failure.

So, what steps can you take to be pro-active in lowering your odds of kidney failure? You can begin with these:

  • Eat whole foods that have ample electrolytes, like potassium and calcium
  • As much as possible, prevent exposure to certain toxins and chemicals such as heavy metals and industrial chemicals
  • Maintain a healthy weight

A More In-Depth Look At Kidney Failure

Kidney failure happens when the kidneys don’t function well enough to keep someone living. Common markers of this are:

  • A loss of the ability of the kidneys to excrete waste
  • The inability to concentrate urine
  • The loss of the ability to conserve electrolytes
  • The inability to maintain fluid balance

To date, no treatment has been discovered that permanently stops progressive renal disease. But advanced medical trials using methods like stem cell therapy have made headway in management techniques that are showing early promise for improved quality of life. Meanwhile, there are several self-management techniques that those who suffer from kidney failure can adopt to keep as healthy as possible.

In addition to stem cell therapy trials, there are several types of conventional treatment employed to help slow the progression of kidney failure and relieve the symptoms. These include medical techniques that:

  • Clean the blood (hemodialysis)
  • Help prevent dehydration
  • Help prevent fluid retention
  • Remove waste from the digestive tract (peritoneal dialysis)

Ultimately, at this time, replacing the diseased kidney with one from a healthy donor is the only thing that stops the progression of renal disease. But the news isn’t all dire. Many patients diagnosed with kidney failure continue with a healthy quality of life for years without the need for dialysis or transplant.

Neither of those options is necessary unless the diseased kidney causes infections, uncontrollable high blood pressure, or become cancerous. And continuing trials and research into regenerative therapy methods, such as those using the patient’s own adult stem cells, are paving the way for advanced treatments that appear to be just over the medical horizon.

Kidney failure is a serious medical condition

But make no mistake. Kidney failure is a serious medical condition. It takes a holistic medical approach to slow the progression and make optimal improvements to the patient’s quality of life. And it requires the person living with renal disease to be fully involved and pro-active. In addition to medical interventions, nutritional counseling is essential in helping those with kidney disease get plenty of crucial nutrients, while functional rehabilitation can help them learn healthy lifestyle habits that keep them active and enhance daily life.

Be On The Lookout For These Symptoms Of Kidney Failure

Sometimes, it can be difficult for a person to recognize the symptoms of kidney failure. If you’re concerned that you or a loved one may be prone to renal disease, keep the following signs in mind:

  • Tenderness or a throbbing pain in the area of the kidney, below the rib cage or in the back or abdomen
  • A change in your pattern of urinating: more than usual, less than usual, or not urinating at all
  • Seeing blood in your urine, or changes in the color of your urine
  • Retaining fluids that cause swelling in the legs, ankles or feet
  • Your face and eyes appear puffy and swollen
  • Indigestion, nausea, loss of appetite, or vomiting
  • Elevated blood pressure
  • Cognitive impairment (confusion, anxiety, or “brain fog” for example) and mood changes

However, once again, keep in mind that a diagnosis of kidney failure –though very serious- does not necessarily mean you will need to undergo dialysis the rest of your life or that you are at risk of imminent death. Overall health, age, and the number of risk factors present all play a very important role in slowing the progression. Today, it is more possible than ever to live an active and fulfilling life with proper management of renal disease.

Risk Factors And Causes

Risk factors in renal disease include:

  • Diabetes
  • Anemia
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease or failure
  • Any form of kidney damage or disease, including kidney stones
  • Sepsis, an infection that causes a slow-down of blood circulation

While a diagnosis of chronic renal disease does not always lead to a diagnosis of kidney failure, if not taken seriously and treated promptly, it can contribute to kidney failure.

Electrolytes also play a crucial role in the health of your kidneys. An unhealthy diet can cause electrolyte imbalances, a deficiency in nutrients, elevated levels of inflammation, and fluctuations in blood pressure. There is also a very strong connection between unhealthy weight gain and kidney failure.

how to prevent kidney failure

As we age, the risk of renal disease increases

For many people with a history of prostate disease, liver damage, or liver disease, the risk of kidney failure can be a concern. This is because these types of diseaseaffect how well the body can rid itself of waste, and process toxins, drugs, hormones and chemicals.

Any time someone experiences a trauma or injury to the kidneys that results in rapid blood loss, the possibility of kidney failure arises. Likewise low immune function that is caused by illnesses, particularly those that are viral in origin, can give rise to renal disease. Elevated levels of emotional stress, frequently occurring infections, or frequent fatigue are also factors in lowering your immunity.

The Connection Between Kidney Failure, Surgery, And Medication

Today, especially since the development of regenerative therapy methods such as stem cell or platelet rich plasma therapies, undergoing surgery is consider a last resort rather than a first one. This is because, while some surgeries remain necessary, one of the risks of surgery is the onset of kidney failure.

Likewise, medications can lead to kidney disease. The over-use of antibiotics and pain medications can increase risk, and drugs such as ACE inhibitors should be closely monitored. Talk to your doctor. Any time you can safely and effectively get by with less dosage, it’s usually a good thing.

What You Can Do To Naturally Treat & Help Prevent Kidney Failure, Damage Or Disease

  1. Adopt a Kidney Friendly Diet

Renal disease affects the body’s ability to process protein, water, salt, potassium, and phosphorous. A diet that takes kidney health into consideration is important in the management of kidney disease. For those with kidney failure, a kidney friendly diet is an essential part of working toward the best possible outcome.

There is now strong evidence that suggests poor nutrition increases kidney disease and patient mortality, even after therapy for kidney disease is initiated. This is because poor diet puts stress on weakened or damaged kidneys. Poor nutrition can also contribute to a variety of health issues that can accompany kidney failure. These include anemia, fluctuations in cholesterol levels, heart damage and bone metabolism dysfunction.

KIDNEY 2 - HEALTHY DIET

It’s important for patients to be pro-active in their health

That’s why it’s just as important for patients to be pro-active in their health nutritionally as medically. Nutritional counseling is an excellent start for examining how you eat today and how to make your eating habits work in your favor to maintain optimal nutrient levels and a healthy weight.

The best diet for you depends on the state of your kidney health. Generally speaking, you should load your diet with foods that are nutrient-dense and high in antioxidants and certain types of electrolytes. Even for those who don’t have renal disease but are still prone to kidney stones or renal risk factors, adhering to a diet that cleanses the kidneys is great.

Foods that aid the cleansing of the kidneys include:

  1. Cranberries
  2. Blueberries
  3. Celery
  4. Burdock root
  5. Green leafy veggies
  6. Beets
  7. Cherries
  8. Spinach
  9. Avocado
  10. Bananas
  11. Citrus fruits

    KIDNEY 3 - PROACTIVE

  12. Stay Hydrated

It is just as important to stay hydrated as it is to adopt a kidney friendly diet. Dehydration can put you at risk for kidney problems. This is particularly crucial to pay attention to if you:

  • Vigorously exercise or engage in high-energy activities
  • Live where the climate is hot
  • Drink tea, coffee, or other caffeinated beverages (caffeine is a diuretic)
  • You are prone to sweating more than average
  1. Watch Your Potassium, Sodium, and Phosphorus

Whole foods that help you manage your potassium intake include:

  • Apples
  • Cabbage
  • Green beans
  • Grapes
  • Strawberries
  • Avoid high-sodium foods such as:
  • Pre-packaged food
  • Frozen meals
  • Soup that is canned
  • Fried food
  • “Fast” food
  • Meats and cheeses that are processed

Limit your consumption of phosphorus by decreasing foods like the following:

  • Dairy products
  • Legumes or beans
  • Nuts (peanuts in particular)

KIDNEY 2 - HEALTHY DIET

Watch Your Dependency on OTC Medications

All too often, overuse of OTC’s is passed over by people as a problem. But they can contribute to your risk of developing kidney failure when abused. So limit them as much as possible. OTC meds that can promote renal disease if overused include:

  • Tylenol
  • Advil
  • Motrin IB
  1. Quit Smoking and Avoid Alcohol

Yes, no doubt you’ve heard this many times. Kicking the habit of tobacco use and anything above moderate alcohol consumption (1 to 2 alcohol units daily) opens up a world of medical risks, not the least of these being kidney failure.

Use Herbs and Supplements to Prevent Renal Disease

First, a word of caution on this topic. If you have already been diagnosed with kidney failure, it is very important that you consult with your medical provider before trying herbs or supplements. This is because many of them are metabolized differently after the onset of renal failure and may worsen your condition.

But if you have not yet developed kidney failure, want to prevent adding to kidney damage, and your doctor give you the green light, the following herbs and supplements may be helpful.

  • Magnesium aids in the prevention of forming kidney stones
  • Vitamins B6 and E help to reduce urine levels of a crystal-forming mineral known as calcium-oxalate
  • Cranberry extract also helps in the reduction of urinary calcium levels
  • Aloe vera, too, is helpful in reducing the formation of urinary crystals

There are also two types of essential oils that have been linked to the reduction of kidney stones. These are citrus and helichrysum oils. They are believed to support the detoxification of the kidneys and liver. To use an essential citrus oil like lemon, lime, wild orange or grapefruit, add two drops in a glass of water two times a day. Helichrysum oil can be used as a topical treatment by rubbing some across the lower abdomen two times a day.

Never Go It Alone When It Comes To Kidney Failure And Disease!

Renal disease and kidney failure are potentially life-threatening. Never try to self-medicate or treat kidney disease without the expertise of a medical professional. Do not mistake the information in this article as a means to replace your relationship with a trusted physician.

Much is being done with regenerative medicine techniques

Today, many in the medical community think of therapy for kidney failure or disease as a multi-faceted approach. Much is being done with regenerative medicine techniques, along with sound conventional methodology and healthy lifestyle changes, to advance the potential of stem cell therapy as a future treatment for renal disease.

The National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) is actively pursuing the development of stem cell application regarding kidney failure and disease. Following FDA guidelines on stem cell therapies, NSI has already helped patients with varying degrees and stages of kidney disease improve their quality of life. So optimism is high. However, certain criteria must be met in order to know if a patient is a good candidate for stem cell therapy regarding renal disease.

It is also critical that people interested in the potential of stem cell therapy for their condition carefully research regenerative medicine clinics that claim to offer these therapies. Below are tips for ensuring that you are working with a legitimate, licensed stem cell clinic.

What to Look for in a Stem Cell Medical Clinic

When searching for a qualified stem cell therapy center it’s important to remember that not all of them are created equal. Stem cells, when used properly, are your body’s most powerful means for healing that can repair everything from ligaments, tendons, and cartilage to organs including your liver, pancreas and lungs and even neurological tissue like your brain, nerves and spinal cord.

Unfortunately, the majority of so-called “regenerative medicine clinics” in the world aren’t trained in the latest, most technologically advanced procedures and will, therefore, provide poor results if any.

The good news is the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) has established the most advanced stem cell and platelet rich plasma procedures on the planet which has drawn patients from all over the world as well as professional athletes and celebrities because they are recognized as the best in the world at stem cell therapy.

 

What makes NSI Stem Cell the top stem cell clinic in the world is demonstrated in 5 key areas:

1. Highly trained and experienced, board-certified doctors and team members who have performed stem cell procedures on thousands of patients with incredible results.

2. Cutting edge procedures utilizing all that regenerative medicine has to offer for many chronic degenerative conditions.

3. Leading scientific researchers who follow the advanced guidelines to maximize the healing potential of your stem cells and to maintain compliance and ethics

4. Use of only the most potent and viable resource of living, viable stem cells and harvested on the same day. No vial that you can purchase will contain living stem cells. If there is no harvest then there are no stem cells.

5. Post-operative guidance for supporting stem-cell growth including rehabilitation, diet and supplement protocols. NSI is a full-service healthcare center focused on patient outcomes. Stem cell therapy is only one tool used to help improve patients’ lives.

Patients have raved about their experience at NSI Stem Cell Clinics testifying that it was their unique cutting-edge procedures that helped them experience a breakthrough when nothing else worked.

Your Gut Always Bothering You? Try Stem Cell Instead

People think about a bad gut and immediately associate it with an irregular bowel movement. That’s only partly true. It’s actually the all-encompassing term that refers to your gastrointestinal tract, which includes the large and small intestine, esophagus, stomach, colon, and yes, the appendix.

You already know that large amounts of bacteria live in your intestine, right? For the most part, they don’t cause any harm, and they are actually beneficial. But just like everything else in nature, when there’s an imbalance, health issues will crop up.

How Stem Cell Therapy Can Improve Symptoms Of Gut Pain

How Do You Know You Have an Unhealthy Gut Anyway?

Here comes the tricky part. It would have been easy enough to realize something is wrong with your gut if you rush to the toilet every now and then. But can you blame your stomach when you suffer from a constant migraine? Of course not!

Here are just some of the symptoms of a defective gut and see if you can identify with some of them:

Skin breakouts like acne or eczema

▪ Migraines

▪ Exhaustion

▪ You get sick often

▪ Joint and arthritic pain

▪ Bloating or gas

▪ Halitosis

▪ Extreme mood swings

▪ Depression

▪ ADHD

▪ Thyroid dysfunction

▪ Celiac or other autoimmune diseases

▪ Diabetes or intense craving for sweets

▪ Food allergy

▪ Poor concentration

▪ Bad memory

unhealthy gutYou would never associate 90% of those red flags stated above with a bad gut. Admit it, you wouldn’t have gone to a doctor to have yourself checked when you experience one or two of those symptoms. The problem is people have a tendency to self-medicate, and only go to the hospital when the problem spirals down from worse to worst.

Why is This Happening to You?

There are many causes for an unhealthy gut. For one, if you are eating processed foods for so long, it can thin up your stomach lining. Hard to digest foods will also cause your intestine to act up. Taking antibiotics more than the recommended period by the doctor will also cause some lesions in your stomach. Then you add the toxic environment, dirty food and water, improper cooking, unhygienic practices, and you have a perfect storm to create a bad gut.

processed foods

Doctors Can’t Always Pinpoint the Cause

Let’s face it, for all the great things they’ve done for humanity, doctors are not fortune tellers. Every medical treatment follows a scientific procedure. For the most part, it’s a process of elimination through lab tests, physical exam, and the patient’s history. But treating your diabetes with insulin, for instance, will not address the root cause of the problem, which is a bad gut.

Of course, when you take ibuprofen the pain in your head subsides and thereby forgetting that the problem is the bad bacteria lingering in your intestine.

Promoting a Healthy Gut

While you can’t do anything about your environment, you focus on what you can control and this means watching what you ingest. Probiotics will help promote a healthy gut, and so does a lot of vegetables (the organic kind) and fiber. You should avoid artificial sweeteners (and sugar in general), trans fats, non-organic food, gluten, processed food, fast food, and dairy.

Why Don’t You Consider Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cell therapy has been proven to address conditions of the gut since they can repair damaged tissues, and research has been done on how they can cure inflammatory bowel disease. The procedure is even deemed safe enough to be a long-term practical solution to gastrointestinal disorders in kids. A thinning stomach lining and bowel wall can also benefit from stem cell therapy, as the study from the University of Melbourne has shown which concludes that the procedure releases neurotransmitters that trigger a positive response and stimulate the malfunctioning area of the digestive system.

6 Natural Ways To Treat The Symptoms Of MS

You Can Be Pro-Active In Managing The Symptoms Of MS. Here’s How!

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is classified as an autoimmune disease. An autoimmune disease is a malfunction of the immune system. The immune system mistakes the body’s own cells for foreign invaders and attacks them. In the case of MS, it attacks the central nervous system.

While MS is known to mostly affect women, men can also fall victim. Multiple sclerosis knows no age limits, but usually is diagnosed in people aged twenty to forty. Today, multiple sclerosis has been diagnosed in over 2.5 million people throughout the world, with at least 400,000 people suffering the symptoms of MS right here in the U.S.

The symptoms of MS are caused by erosion of the myelin sheath, which surrounds and protects nerve cells. When the myelin sheath is damaged so, too, is the nerve exposed to damage. This causes signals being emitted by the nerve to slow or stop altogether.

Fatigue

At their core, the symptoms of MS are the result of inflammation

This happens when our bodies’ immune system confuses the elements of the nervous system as foreign objects and attacks them. The entire nervous system is vulnerable to multiple sclerosis, and damage can occur anywhere within the brain or the spinal cord.

The origin cause of MS is still unknown. But high on the list of culprits are infection, toxicity (such as mold), excessive traumatic or emotional stress, hormonal imbalance, deficiencies in vitamin D, and food allergies.

The Symptoms of MS

Symptoms of MS are notorious for how widely they vary. However, certain ones are the most common. They include:

  • Vision Problems
  • Difficulty in Thinking Clearly
  • Poor Coordination
  • Balance Troubles
  • A Sense of Numbness or Tingling
  • Arm or Leg Weakness

There is no single, neat formula for what to expect in the symptoms of MS. Every patient experiences them differently and at different levels of intensity. It’s possible to suffer a single symptom, then live your life for weeks, months, or even years without experiencing any other types of symptoms. Or symptoms can occur just once, and never recur. For others, the symptoms of MS can worsen over the course of weeks or months.

Multiple sclerosis is among the most common degenerative conditions seen at the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI), a leading regenerative medicine facility in the United States. The good news is that with today’s regenerative treatments like stem cell therapy for MS, strides are being made in the relief and even remission of this chronic disease. Reversal in damage done by multiple sclerosis is a regular occurrence for many.

Especially in cases of chronic conditions like multiple sclerosis, NSI strongly urges that patients take a pro-active role in treating their symptoms of MS in order to build upon the health and function that returns during and after treatment. With that in mind, the Institute recommends augmenting medical treatment with these six natural ways to help alleviate the symptoms of MS.

what are symptoms of ms

#1: Foods That Help Relieve Symptoms Of MS

Food plays an important role in managing the symptoms of MS. A diet high in healthy fats and nutrients is essential for this. Foods that aid in managing multiple sclerosis symptoms include:

Food that are Unprocessed. Good choices are whole foods, preferably organically grown and as unprocessed as is possible.

Coconut Oil. This delicious oil is known for its large amounts of medium chain fatty acids (MCFA). These fatty acids are highly beneficial for the brain and nervous system.

Fresh Veggies and Fruit. The more colorful the fruit or vegetable, the higher its antioxidant count, which is a critical player in the prevention of damage from free radicals.

.FruitsandVeggies

Omega-3 Fats. These healthy fats are most abundant in fish that are wild-caught. Omega-3 fats help in the reduction of inflammation, one of the primary causes of symptoms of MS.

Cabbage and Sprouts. Both cabbage and bean sprouts are rich in lecithin. Studies done on the benefits of lecithin show that this essential fat for cell health may go a long way in helping to strengthen nerves and keep the myelin sheath intact.

Avoid these Foods if You have Multiple Sclerosis

Food that is Processed. Since there seems to be a connection between toxins and the recurrence in the symptoms of MS, reduce exposure to chemicals and toxins as much as possible when making food choices. Processed foods usually contain high quantities of chemical preservatives and flavor enhancers.

Gluten. Usually, multiple sclerosis sufferers are gluten intolerant. If this is the case for you, avoid foods that have this protein compound. It can make a big difference in flare ups and the intensity of symptoms of MS.

Food Allergens. Have a food allergy? Even if it doesn’t seem to be related to your symptoms of MS, it is likely contributing their recurrence or severity. Avoid foods that you suspect you may be allergic to.

Processed Sugar. Any type of processed sugar will interfere with the body’s immune response. The result is systemic inflammation and premature aging. Even in cases of natural sugars like honey, go lightly in order to help reduce chances of flare-ups.

Alcohol. Not just in products like liquor, beer, and wine, alcohol in any form can increase inflammation and produce a toxic environment within the body. Go alcohol free as much as possible, even in products as seemingly innocent as mouth washes.

Oil

#2 Through #5: The Right Vitamins And Minerals

Fish Oil. Fish oil continues to prove highly valuable in reducing inflammation. It is also known to support improved nerve function. Taking a 2,000mg daily supplement is a great way to help manage symptoms of MS.

FishOil

High Potency Multi-Vitamins. Select high potency when shopping for your multi-vitamins. These provide the right amounts of the basic nutrients that affect immune function.

Vitamins

Digestive Enzymes. These are enzymes that break down polymeric macromolecules into their smaller building blocks. This is what facilitates their absorption into the body. They are essential in breaking down starches into sugar and protein into amino acids. Taking one or two capsules at each meal may aid digestion and help in the reduction of autoimmune reactions to foods.

Vitamin D3. This vitamin is an immune system modulator aid. It also supports the healthy functioning of the brain. Adding 5000 IU daily to your supplement regimen can go a long way in helping to control the symptoms of MS.

Vitamin B12. This vitamin is related to the healthy formation of nerves. Include 1000 mcg daily.

Check Out This Bonus Remedy In Managing The Symptoms Of MS

Astaxanthin is a potent carotenoid antioxidant. It’s known for supporting the brain and nervous system. You can get it through wild caught salmon or in supplement form. Taking 2 mg once or twice daily will do nicely.

Try These Essential Oils For Treating The Symptoms Of MS

Essential oils have been proving their worth as health aids for centuries. Regarding the symptoms of MS, frankincense and helichrysum are especially supportive in neurological function. The frankincense should be taken internally on a cycle of two drops three times a day for three weeks, break for one week, then return to the two drops three times a day for three weeks. Repeat the cycle.

Helichrysum oil is derived from plants found in the sunflower family. Its restorative properties provide excellent support to the skin, liver, and nervous system. Use it by rubbing two drops to the temples and neck twice a day.

Basil and cypress oils, meanwhile, are known for improving circulation and muscle tone. Both of these qualities can help reduce the symptoms of MS. Rub several drops of one or both into your palms and massage into muscles.

#6: Regenerative Medicine Therapy

Today, the best treatment for the symptoms of MS is a three-prong approach. Regenerative medicine methods are considered in the class of disease-modifying treatments. This is because regenerative techniques like stem cell therapy for MS have the ability to address the core cause of symptoms.

All healing and regeneration begins at the cellular level

Regardless of the reason for the damage -whether illness, injury, or chronic disorders-the stem cell’s most essential purpose is as a building block that repairs that damage. They replace, repair, heal, or re-grow whatever is in need within the body.

Multiple sclerosis is a case in which the body’s nerves have been attacked by the immune system. So one of the goals of stem cell therapy is to heal nerve damage and re-grow healthy nerve tissue as needed. Myelin sheaths can only be repaired or re-grown on the cellular level. Because of stem cells’ plasticity, their abilities to address the relapses and symptoms of MS make them a natural and effective treatment.

Happy

Advanced regenerative medicine facilities like the National Stem Cell Institute strictly comply with FDA guidelines

These guidelines require minimal manipulation of the patient’s stem cells. NSI has developed treatment that is very minimally invasive and is done on an outpatient basis with no recovery time needed after therapy.

Stem cell therapy for MS is rigidly controlled under exacting sterile conditions and done entirely in-house. There is no risk of rejection, since NSI procedures work exclusively with the patient’s own stem cells derived from a small sample of fatty tissue.

In addition to the specific procedure, stem cell therapy for MS at the Institute also includes nutritional counseling and functional rehabilitation. This three-prong approach provides optimal relief of symptoms of MS and has created a treatment is safe, effective, and has significantly longer-term results than the conventional multiple sclerosis previously used in medicine.

MS Facts

MS is not contagious. It is a reaction of the immune system.

Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) can be used to determine disease progression and assess how well your treatment for the symptoms of MS is doing.

The Four Types of Multiple Sclerosis are:

  • Clinically Isolated Syndrome (CIS)
  • Relapsing-Remitting Multiple Sclerosis (RRMS)
  • Primary-Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (PPMS)
  • Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis (SPMS)

Pain is a real part of the symptoms of MS. Pay no attention to those who might tell you the pain “is all in your mind,” or “just shake it off and power through it.” The symptoms of MS are very real, and legitimate medical facilities like the National Stem Cell Institute treat them as such.

It is not possible to predict when or where a lesion on a myelin sheath will occur. But it is possible for these lesions to be healed. The repair of these lesions one of the primary factors in today’s advanced medical treatments such as stem cell therapy for MS.

Applying heat to an area affected by multiple sclerosis can worsen symptoms.

Multiple sclerosis is more widespread in latitudes that are southern or those that are high northern.

Modern medical practices such as stem cell therapy for MS are known as disease modifiers and have been shown to decrease relapse frequency.

Most Common Symptoms Of MS

Fatigue affects 75% to 90% of those diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. In fact, it is reported by MS patients that it is the most disabling of all symptoms of MS.

Incontinence and other bladder and bowel troubles are also very common symptoms of MS.

Spasticity is commonly experienced by MS patients when demyelination happens in nerves that control regulation of muscle tone. It presents as a stiffness or tightness in muscles. Spasticity is known to impede normal movement, speech and gait.

The inflammation of the optic nerve (called optic neuritis) is often among the commonly felt symptoms of MS.

Cognitive dysfunction, frequently referred to as “cog fog” occurs in many people with MS.

Clinical depression is diagnosed in at least 50% of people who suffer from MS.

Multiple sclerosis is not considered a directly inherited neurological condition. However, studies indicate that genetics may play a role in a person’s predisposition to develop MS.

Understanding More About Multiple Sclerosis

To have a better grasp of how multiple sclerosis affects the central nervous system (CNS), it helps to think of the nervous system as an internal tree. The CNS is both the tree’s roots and its trunk. Symptoms of MS can spring up from anywhere along this internal tree.

People suffering from the symptoms of MS often experience relapses. The National Multiple Sclerosis Society offers this definition an MS relapse:

  • A symptom -whether new or one that worsens- lasting longer than 24 hours, that may happen 30 days or more following a previous attack, and is related specifically to MS rather than another cause like stress, infections, or elevations in body temperature.

Though the definition of a relapse omits external factors, this is not to say that elements such as stress, sickness, or temperature fluctuation cannot worsen the symptoms of MS. This is medically known as pseudo-exacerbation.

Today’s Advanced Treatments For Multiple Sclerosis

The advancements that have been made in treating the symptoms of MS have gone far beyond attempted management through medication alone. Regenerative medicine now makes combating multiple sclerosis at the cellular level a reality. Pairing stem cell therapy for MS with healthy nutritional habits and the right physical activities is the 21st century high-water mark in modern medicine’s ability to significant improvement the lives of those with the disease, offering a bright future based in science reality.

What To Look For In A Licensed U.S. Regenerative Medical Clinic

Stem cell therapy procedures are medical specialties that must be practiced by experienced, legally licensed professionals. Just as you would not trust a medically untrained person to perform surgery on your heart, you shouldn’t trust someone who is not a qualified physician to perform stem cell therapy or platelet rich plasma treatment.

The National Stem Cell Institute offers the following tips on how to determine if a facility is a legitimate, FDA guidelines-compliant clinic licensed to practice regenerative medicine methods in the United States:

If the stem cell clinic in question uses any type of stem cells other than those derived from human bone marrow or adipose fat, the facility is putting your health at risk. That clinic is not following FDA guidelines, and is not a legitimate regenerative medicine facility.

Under President George W. Bush, the use of embryonic stem cells for regenerative medicine practices was banned years ago. If the clinic in question is claiming to use human embryonic stem cells, consider that facility dubious. Seek out a facility that strictly adheres to FDA guidelines.

A legitimate regenerative medicine clinic takes a holistic approach to health and treatment. Follow-ups after therapy are essential, and companion therapies such as functional rehabilitation and nutritional counseling should be on-site at the facility as well. Particularly with chronic illnesses and injuries, these are essential to achieving optimum health and function while receiving stem cell and/or PRP therapy. If the clinic you are considering does not offer these services, consider that clinic highly suspect.

Patients have raved about their experience at NSI Stem Cell Clinics testifying that it was their unique cutting-edge procedures that helped them experience a breakthrough when nothing else worked.

7 Natural Remedies For Hair Loss

These 7 Natural Remedies For Hair Loss Can Make A Real Difference!

How our hair looks can play a critical role in how we feel about ourselves and how others perceive us. No surprise, then, that experiencing hair loss can be demoralizing and stressful. Solutions for hair loss have been with mankind for thousands of years. Most through history have been ineffective and, often, bizarre.

Today, medical institutions like the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) –one of the leading regenerative medicine facilities of the United States-understand the reasons for hair loss far better than in ages past. For instance, did you know certain vitamins are essential for the healthy growth of hair? And here’s another fact: poor nutrition, which often includes vitamin deficiencies, is a major player in causing hair loss. Happily, much more is understood about natural remedies for hair loss than in any other period in history.

Hair loss is far from a strictly male problem

Less than forty-five percent of women will have a life-long full head of hair. For men, the majority will experience at least some degree of hair loss during their lives. Today we know that regulation of hormone levels or combating oxidative stress as you age can make a big difference.

It is estimated that hair care is an 83 billion dollar industry. And that’s in the United States alone. That’s because the hair care industry understands just how much stock people put in a healthy, youthful head of hair. The trouble is, most of these products don’t really deliver on their promises. And they often contain risky chemicals to boot.

So it’s worth your while to explore these 7 natural remedies for hair loss before spending your hard-earned money on more products that will likely leave you disillusioned.

Six Vitamins For Hair Growth And One Natural Remedy From Modern Science

stem cellsThe reason so many chemically-based treatments for hair loss come up short is the complex nature of losing hair. Genetics, hormones, lifestyle habits, and the environment all play a part to one degree or another. And, of course, the follicles of the hair are as subject to the ravages of aging as the skin.

Some of these factors are easier to control than others. One of them that can be easily corrected is vitamin deficiency. When this is the case for hair loss, increasing your intake of vitamin-rich foods or by adding the right supplement to your diet, you can significantly slow the loss or may even stop it altogether.

There are vitamins that contain antioxidants that aid in combating the external reasons for hair loss, such as environmental causes. Still others help with the balancing of hormones levels.

With that in mind, the following six vitamins for hair growth should part of your life if you want to naturally help your hair to become thick, healthy, and lustrous.

1. Sometimes, Something Fishy can be a Good Thing!

The Omega 3 fats that are inherent in fish oil are a natural remedy for hair loss. Omega 3 fats have long been established as having healthy benefits for both skin and hair. These oils are excellent for nourishing hair and supporting thickness, as well as reducing inflammation that often leads to hair loss.

As recent as 2015, a study appearing in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology looked at the results from subjects taking omega 3, omega 6, and other antioxidants for six months. In this randomized comparative trial to examine the potential of these oils as remedies for hair loss, 120 women with female pattern hair loss were followed. At the end of the six-month treatment, nearly 90% of the women reported significant lessening of hair loss, improved hair diameter and hair density.

Foods that are rich in omega 3 include:

  • Salmon
  • Mackerel
  • Tuna
  • White Fish
  • Sardines
  • Egg yolks
  • Walnuts
  • Hemp Seeds

Omega 3 foods work as natural remedies for hair loss because they help the body balance hormonal levels and fight inflammation. Not really into fish, seeds, or nuts? You can still get omega 3 as a supplement, either in capsules or in liquid form. One to two capsules or a single tablespoon will do nicely for reducing the inflammation that can cause hair disorders.

Are you presently on a blood thinner? Even if it’s only aspirin, it’s important to talk to your doctor before starting a fish oil regimen, as the oil may increase your chance of bleeding.

2. Let This Zinc In

As a remedy for hair loss, zinc compounds taken by mouth have been around for decades. They have been very useful in the treatment of hair loss due to telogen effluvium and alopecia areata. Zinc is highly beneficial in follicle health. It an important co-factor for multiple enzymes and is related to essential functions of hair follicles. This mineral plays a role in preventing the regression of follicles while also accelerating the recovery of follicles.

Studies indicate that, for hair loss, zinc deficiency can be a factor. In fact, zinc deficiency has been found to be an issue for some alopecia areata patients. When alopecia sufferers took zinc sulfate as an oral supplement, doing so served as a helpful treatment. But zinc isn’t just beneficial to people with genetic disorders that cause hair loss. Studies also show that it’s helpful for hair loss caused by typical male pattern and female pattern baldness.

3. It’s Not Complex to get the Right B-Complex Vitamins!

Vitamin B5 works to support the health of the adrenal glands. These glands perform a number of functions, such as regulating metabolism and helping the body deal with stress. The adrenal glands also help stimulate hair growth. This makes it an essential supplement for hair loss prevention.

Biotin has been used for many years now as a natural remedy for hair loss. Biotin, a water soluble B vitamin, benefits your hair by repairing damage done to the strands’ cuticle layers through excessive shampooing, sun exposure, and hair styling activities like blow drying or ironing.

One of the primary signs of a biotin deficiency is the loss of hair

Biotin deficiency can be caused by lifestyle choices like tobacco smoking. But proper levels of biotin can also be affected by liver dysfunction or pregnancy. Studies have shown that a significant number of women develop a biotin deficiency after becoming pregnant. This is because the developing fetus needs biotin for vital growth functions. The studies brought researchers to the conclusion that the standard recommendations for biotin as a daily supplement don’t take into account the nutrient needs of women who are pregnant.

As a prevention for hair loss, as well as to reverse the loss and strengthen hair, you can add one B complex supplement to your daily vitamin routine. Alternatively, you can choose to add one biotin and one vitamin B5 tablet as separate items to your regimen. You should consider eating foods that are rich in biotin and vitamin B5, as well.

Foods rich in these vitamins include:

  • Eggs
  • Beef
  • Chicken
  • Avocado
  • Legumes
  • Nuts
  • Potatoes

Pregnant or planning to become pregnant? Check with your health care provider to see how much biotin you should add to your daily nutritional requirements.

avocado4. Orange You Gland There’s Vitamin C?

A lot of evidence is building that points to oxidative stress playing a critical role in aging. Free radicals are extremely reactive molecules that can cause oxidative stress, which directly damages the structural membranes of cells, proteins, fatty acids known as lipids, and your DNA. An critical ingredient for hair loss if there ever was one.

As we grow older, free radical production within the body tends to increase

One of the reasons for this is that a part of the body’s natural defenses, antioxidative enzymes, decrease. The result is cell structure damage and the aging of hair. Vitamin C works as an antioxidant, fighting the oxidative stress that is major contributor to the graying and loss of hair.

You can use foods that are rich in vitamin C as part of your remedy for hair loss. They include:

  • Oranges
  • Red Peppers
  • Kale
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Broccoli
  • Strawberries
  • Grapefruit
  • Kiwi Fruit

You can also supplement your diet with 500 to 1,000 milligrams of C twice daily. If you choose to add more, be aware that megadoses have been known to cause diarrhea or nausea in some people.

5. Iron isn’t just for Wrinkles!

In addition to zinc deficiencies, not getting enough iron has shown to be a reason for hair loss. Studies that examine the relationship of iron deficiency in baldness have shown that iron deficiency anemia is responsible for hair loss in many people.

Adding foods rich in iron can be an effective, natural remedy for hair loss. They include:

  • Spinach
  • Swiss Chard
  • Collard Greens
  • Egg Yolk
  • Beef (particularly in steak form)
  • Navy Beans
  • Black Beans

Once again, you can supplement your diet with iron tablets or by making sure iron is part of your daily multivitamin. But don’t over-do it with iron supplements. An overload of iron can affect the liver, heart, and pancreas. Don’t turn your remedy for hair loss into serious health problems.

steak6. Does D Stand for Hair? It Does When Using Vitamin D for Hair Loss!

Did you know that vitamin D is an essential hormone? It is, and it’s commonly known in the medical science community that vitamin D deficiency is a frequent occurrence in people who have alopecia areata.

The follicles of the hair are extremely susceptible to hormonal shifts. As a hormone, vitamin D plays a critical role in the regulation of calcium in the extracellular fluid of the body. It also is an important player in the regulation of the immune system, as well as in aiding cells to become the various types of tissue that comprise our bodies. Studies also support the medical view that not having enough vitamin D may play a part in the development of many autoimmune diseases.

If you want to use vitamin D for hair loss prevention, the best way to get it is directly from the sun

Sitting in the sun for approximately 10 to 15 minutes allows you to absorb around 10,000 units of natural vitamin D. Sunshine, in proper amounts of exposure, is also a natural de-toxer. And, of course, foods rich in D can also go a long way for hair loss prevention.

Foods rich in vitamin D include:

  • Halibut
  • Mackerel
  • Eel
  • Salmon
  • Whitefish
  • Swordfish
  • Maitake mushrooms
  • Portabella mushrooms

All of the above foods and vitamin supplements discussed can be combined for hair loss prevention. You can also give your hair a healthy boost with the following.

The Essential Oil Rosemary

Massaging rosemary oil into the scalp has been shown by studies conducted in 2013 and 2015 to directly increase the cellular metabolism responsible for stimulating the growth of hair. The 2015 study in particular compared the application of rosemary oil with that of minoxidil. You may know minoxidil better as Rogaine, a topical medication developed for hair loss reversal. At the end of six months, hair count increased significantly in both the group that used minoxidil and the one that used rosemary essential oil.

However, scalp irritation and itching was reported more frequently by the subjects who used minoxidil. The study conducted in 2015 proved that the rosemary oil is every bit as successful as minoxidil for hair loss, and did the job without side effects like scalp itch.

Aloe Vera, in either Juice or Gel Form

For centuries now, aloe vera has been known for its nourishing properties. It contains vast amounts of vitamins and minerals. It’s as great as a preventative for hair loss as it is a health and beauty aid or household burn treatment. The soothing properties that aloe vera is known for also conditions the scalp and relieves inflammation. All of this provides an idyllic environment for healthy hair growth.

Aloe vera has antibacterial and antifungal qualities that also eliminate dandruff. Plus, this natural preventive for hair loss contains enzymes that help clear the scalp of dead cells and aids the regeneration of skin tissue surrounding hair follicles.

Apply as a gel, or drink as a juice

There are two ways you can add aloe vera as a preventative for hair loss. In gel form, you can massage it directly into the scalp, either alone or as an additive to shampoo. You can also drink the juice of aloe vera. Using a liquid measurement cup, fill it halfway. Drink this amount twice daily, and see how the healthy properties of aloe vera work to boost the health of your hair!

Modern Medicine’s Natural Remedy For Hair Loss: Regenerative Therapy

Many people don’t realize that stem cells have been used in the United States for treating of a long list of illnesses, injuries, and chronic disorders for many years now. Not only are severe conditions like arthritis and autoimmune diseases successfully and safely treated, stem cell therapy for hair loss is a regularly performed and simple procedure.

Using adipose stem cells for hair regeneration is modern medicine’s most successful path to permanent hair re-growth. It can be considered a natural remedy for hair loss because the stem cells are the patient’s own, and are minimally manipulated in a sterile laboratory setting.

The potent adipose stem cells stimulate those that are already present in the hair follicle, which in turn causes the dormant stem cells to signal hair growth. Using stem cell therapy for hair loss also constructs and helps to underpin the hair follicle papilla, which is the base of the follicle bulb. The bulb is comprised of connective tissue and capillary loops, an essential part of healthy hair.

The result is ongoing, long term, permanent hair regeneration

These adult stem cells are easily harvested from the patient’s own natural fat stores. The small sample is most often taken from the thigh, buttock, or abdomen.

The adipose stem cells of the body are always “active” and ready to be used. However, in the case of hair follicles, stem cells are usually dormant and do not replicate until receiving a signal from the surrounding area that they are needed. Getting the stem cells within a hair follicle to “wake up” was once a tricky and mysterious matter. But through the development of today’s adult stem cell therapy, science has joined with nature to produce a permanent solution for hair loss.

Who Is A Candidate For Stem Cell Therapy For Hair Loss?

There are two essential steps in determining your candidacy for hair loss stem cell treatment. The first is to ask yourself these questions:

  • Have you tried medications for hair loss that have been ineffective?
  • Do you have allergies or any sensitivity issues with other natural treatments for hair loss?
  • Have other treatments lost their efficacy?
  • Do you prefer not to apply artificially produced chemical treatments for hair loss to your skin?
  • Are you seeking a treatment for hair loss that uses your own body’s innate healing properties?

Seek out a regenerative medicine facility that has physicians, health care providers, and medical staff that are experienced in stem cell treatment for hair loss. The National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) strongly urges patients to make sure the facility is FDA guidelines-compliant. Questions? You can reach NSI at (877) 278-3623

Top 16 Anti-Inflammatory Foods to Promote Health and Wellness

Even with modern advancements in medicine, there seems to be a rise in the number of people affected by arthritis, heart disease, asthma, cancer, amongst others. Many scientists acknowledge that these diseases affect the general population to a higher degree than it did decades ago. According to WHO (World Health Organization), noncommunicable diseases is the leading cause of death for people around the world.

WHO has named poor diet, tobacco use, and excessive alcohol consumption as some of the main factors that have led to the higher incidences of these diseases. While you are advised to quit smoking and drinking, there hasn’t been a lot of focus placed on providing information on the kind of foods that they should be taking. In particular, the power of anti-inflammatory foods in transforming one’s health has grossly been underrated.

What Is The Role Of Inflammation In The Body?

Even though there are many diseases caused by inflammation, inflammation is actually an important bodily function. It is an important part of the body’s immune response. It helps the body get rid of damaged cells, harmful stimuli, irritants, and pathogens.

When these harmful elements and irritants are detected, white cells and other important substances are deployed to that part of the body. Blood flow may increase in the area to ensure hormones, white blood cells, and nutrients are delivered to the affected area. As a result, you may notice redness and swelling. Without inflammation, wounds would become septic and infections would be difficult to contain.

However, inflammation is not always beneficial to the body. Science tells us that it is the root cause of many common diseases. Inflammation can generally be categorized into two; Acute and chronic.

  • Acute: Inflammation progresses rapidly and may quickly become severe. It may clear within a few days or may extend to a few weeks.
  • Chronic: Chronic inflammation is long-term and can last for months and even years. It often happens when the immune system cannot get rid of the irritant, when the irritant persists at low levels in the body, or when the immune system begins to attack tissues in the body.

Acute inflammation may cause flu, sore throat, tonsillitis and bronchitis. Chronic inflammation may be responsible for even more serious conditions such as arthritis, cancer, Crohn’s disease, and chronic active hepatitis amongst other diseases. An autoimmune disorder happens when the body decides to reject its own cells and tissues. Some of the more common immune disorders include rheumatoid arthritis, vitiligo, and systemic lupus erythematosus. For diseases that are not autoimmune, the body responds to pathogens and irritants, but in a way that is not properly controlled and regulated. Some of the diseases that are not autoimmune may include tonsillitis and asthma.

Scientists and medical practitioners acknowledge that nutrition can help manage and even cure most of these diseases. However, some studies show that dietary recommendations by medical practitioners are still underdeveloped. This happens even after the patients request dietary recommendations from their doctors.

What Can An Anti-Inflammatory Food Diet Do?

One of the best ways to combat inflammation and the diseases that come with it is through diet. It has been noted that some of the foods that cause inflammation also cause heart disease and diabetes. Some of these foods include refined carbohydrates, carbonated drinks, and a number of processed foods. These foods facilitate the underlying mechanisms that trigger and sustain inflammation in the body. They also limit the body’s ability to control infections, contain allergies and reduce the risk of cancer.

To adopt and anti-inflammatory diet, you need to avoid processed foods and start taking a well-balanced diet that contains plenty of fruits and vegetables. You will also need to avoid or reduce the consumption of red meats, processed carbohydrates, and foods with a lot of additives.

For the best results you need to consider foods with the following:

  • Antioxidants: Are known to protect cells from free radicals and reduce inflammation by reducing oxidation in the body.
  • Minerals: An important element in the regulation of inflammation.
  • Essential Fatty Acids: Fatty acids are an important part of the functional response of cells to inflammation.

Top 16 Anti-Inflammatory Foods

There are some important changes you can make to your diet to reduce your risk of succumbing to one of the diseases caused by inflammation. Taking small consistent steps is generally more realistic and easier to implement.

You can start by replacing some of the foods in your diet that will secure your body from diseases at a cellular level. Here are some of the best non-inflammatory foods you can incorporate into your diet.

Top 5 Tips For Your Fibromyalgia Diet

Reduce FMS Symptoms With These Top 5 Fibromyalgia Diet Tips

If you have found that controlling your fibromyalgia symptoms with medication only hasn’t been effective, you’re not alone. According to Dr. Kathleen Holton’s scholarly article published on ScienceDirect, “Fibromyalgia symptoms are only about 30% amenable to current pharmaceutical strategies on the market.”

Population studies estimate that at least 5 million people in the United States are diagnosed with fibromyalgia symptoms. The majority of Americans who suffer from FMS are eighteen years old and up. Most of them are women, usually middle-aged. However, approximately ten to twenty percent of Americans affected by fibromyalgia are men and children. This means that fibromyalgia is a nationwide concern that cuts across the board.

fibromyalgia stem cell tipsFibromyalgia diet changes often reduce symptoms to zero or near-zero

The good news is that there are dietary habits that can be adopted by people suffering from fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS). The National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) regularly pairs regenerative medicine methods with sound nutritional counseling at their medical facilities. NSI has found that there are five dietary elements that are especially helpful to patients for dramatically reducing their fibromyalgia symptoms. Paired with stem cell therapy, patients at NSI regularly report that these fibromyalgia diet changes often reduce symptoms to zero or near-zero.

Making A Fibromyalgia Diet Work For You

Did you know that as many as 42% of FMS patients report that their symptoms get worse after eating particular foods? Research is showing that the evidence for this isn’t just anecdotal. Certain simple changes in diet can cause a significant reduction in the intensity of fibromyalgia symptoms and flare ups. The fixes aren’t complex, yet they can make a world of difference in planning a good fibromyalgia diet.

Being pro-active in managing fibromyalgia makes a difference

Today, more FMS patients than ever understand the need to be pro-active partners with their doctors in managing their fibromyalgia symptoms. That’ why nutritional counseling is such an important part of patient treatment at NSI. Let’s take a closer look at the top five tips that NSI patients have found work best for their auto-immune and fibromyalgia diet regimens.

Top 5 Tips For Your Fibromyalgia Diet

fibromyalgia tips

1. Vitamin D is Your Friend

A lot of people have a deficiency in vitamin D. But for people who have FMS, the “sunshine vitamin” is often absolutely vital. According to Dr. Holton, a deficiency in vitamin D frequently mimics some fibromyalgia symptoms. Adding the right amount of vitamin D to your fibromyalgia diet regimen just may result in reducing symptom flare-ups.

Get screened to check for Vitamin D deficiency

NSI recommends that all fibromyalgia patients undergo testing to see if they have a deficiency in vitamin D. A lack of this essential vitamin can lead to bone and muscle pain, one of the most common fibromyalgia symptoms. A groundbreaking study conducted in 2008 showed that people with a vitamin D deficiency needed near-double doses of pain medication, compared to people who had sufficient vitamin D levels.

So when planning your fibromyalgia diet regimen, be sure to check to see where your own vitamin D levels are. Your nutritional counselor can advise you on the right amount of supplement to add.

2. Food Additives? Avoid Adding Them!

There are several common food additives that can be classified as “excitotoxins.” Sure, the “excito” part is nice, but the “toxin” element…not so much! An excitotoxin is an amino acid that excites our neurons. The three most commonly used as food additives are glutamate, aspartate, and cysteine. They have been added in large quantities to foods for many years now, and are a primary reason behind our cravings for so many unhealthy foods. Excitotoxins aren’t good for anyone, but they are especially problematic for people wanting to follow a beneficial fibromyalgia diet plan.

Foods that often contain excitotoxins include:

  • Processed Foods
  • Frozen Meals
  • “Diet” Foods
  • Diet/Lo Calories Beverages
  • Artificial Sweeteners
  • Processed Snack Products

Excitotoxins ramp up pain sensitivity in fibromyalgia sufferers

These toxins belong to a chemical group that can cause neurons to become hyperactive, which can ramp up an FMS sufferer’s pain sensitivity. Throttling back your intake of excitotoxins like MSG, aspartate, and cysteine can go a very long way in developing a fibromyalgia diet that helps you manage your symptoms.

Keep in mind that some amino acids, like cysteine, are considered semi-essential to nutrition. However, controlling how much you take in is the key. Like so many things in life, moderation works wonders for a fibromyalgia diet regimen. So ease off foods that have been boosted with excitotoxins: like Asian takeout or diet drinks.

3. Something’s Fishy. And It’s a Good Thing!

Omega-3 fatty acids are excellent for reducing inflammation everywhere in the body, from the cellular level on up. Omega-3 is also a powerful ally in the prevention of cardiovascular disease. So it should come as no surprise that this healthy fat can be beneficial in reducing fibromyalgia symptoms related to joint and muscle pain. Omega-3 fatty acids should be a major element in any good fibromyalgia diet regimen.

Foods that contain Omega-3 include:

  • Lake Trout
  • Salmon
  • Mackerel
  • Fresh Albacore Tuna
  • Whole Grain Breads
  • Whole Grain Cereals
  • Peanut Butter
  • Walnuts
  • Pumpkins Seeds
  • Flaxseed
  • Eggs
  • Milk Yogurt
  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Avocadoes

Omega-3 can be a game-changer in multiple fibromyalgia symptoms

Omega-3’s soreness-reducing traits can be a real boon in the reduction of several fibromyalgia symptoms. People who have added Omega-3 to their fibromyalgia diet regimen have reported an easing of the joint stiffness that many FMS patients experience in the morning. It also relieves the discomfort of inflamed joints.

Many people with FMS also suffer from other chronic conditions like rheumatoid arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, or dysmenorrhea (severe, chronic menstrual pain). Adding Omega-3 to their fibromyalgia diet plan will provide added benefit for those who must also contend with the symptoms of these additional health complications.

There are many delicious foods that contain Omega-3 fatty acids, from fish to vegetables to dairy to grains and cereals. So find your favorites and add them guilt-free to your new fibromyalgia diet regimen!

old woman fybromyalgia4. Cut the Caffeine

It can be a vicious cycle. Your FMS interferes with sleep. You gulp down caffeinated beverages like coffee, tea, or Red Bull so you can make it through the day. By the time you’re ready to go to bed, the very thing that fueled your day now adds to one of your primary fibromyalgia symptoms: sleep problems.

A classic set-up for energy crashes

NSI sees this regularly with fibromyalgia patients. Caffeinated drinks for many FMS sufferers is a classic set-up for energy crashes, especially when drank late into the day. Ultimately, caffeine doesn’t compensate for FMS-related sleep problems. It adds to them and, all too frequently, makes them chronically worse.

It may take a little discipline in the beginning. Caffeine withdrawal can lead to temporary headaches and irritability. But cutting out caffeine when you switch to a healthy fibromyalgia diet plan can pay off big time. Many FMS patients find that they don’t have to go cold turkey. They steadily decrease their caffeine intake over a week or two. Consult with an experienced nutritional counselor like those at NSI for advice on how to best kick the caffeine habit. When you begin getting better sleep, even with your fibromyalgia symptoms, you’ll be glad you did!

5. Radical Thinking: Eat Your Veggies

Many studies indicate that lack of antioxidants may well aggravate, or even cause, fibromyalgia symptoms. When the body doesn’t produce enough antioxidants, oxidative stress occurs. Antioxidants are what the body uses to combat cell damage caused by free radicals. A free radical is a molecule that is unstable.

When a molecule is unstable, it “robs” electrons from molecules around it in order to stabilize itself. This, then, causes the molecule robbed of its own electrons to become unstable, so it attacks stable molecules around it. It’s a classic case of chain reaction, which results in damage to living cells that can potential cause illness and cancer.

Oxidative stress can trigger or increase the severity of fibromyalgia symptoms

A well-planned fibromyalgia diet plan helps combat the oxidative stress that can trigger or increase the severity of FMS symptoms. Virtually any fruit or vegetable that you can think of is loaded with potent antioxidants; among them, vitamins A, C, and E. Vitamins like these help control free radicals and work to stabilize molecular functions. Some studies indicate that a raw vegan dietary plan works well for controlling FMS symptoms. However, many people would find it very difficult to maintain this as a fibromyalgia diet regimen.

Fortunately, FMS patients who might feel going strictly raw vegan is too intense as a fibromyalgia diet have options. You still want to load up on veggies and fruits that are rich in antioxidants. The trick is to not overcook vegetables. Lightly steamed veggies retain plenty of nutritional content, including their antioxidant qualities. They taste a lot better, too, when not overcooked.

Vegetables and fruits rich in antioxidants include:

  • Spinach
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Kale
  • Broccoli
  • Beets
  • Red Bell Peppers
  • Onions
  • Eggplant
  • Strawberries
  • Plums
  • Raspberries
  • Blackberries
  • Cherries

Understanding Gluten Connection In A Sound & Healthy Fibromyalgia Diet

The goal of any proper fibromyalgia diet should be aiding the control of inflammation, the reduction of toxicity, and promotion of nutrient absorption. It’s not actually about vegan versus paleo, ketogenics versus calorie counting. Instead the focus should be on sticking to some basic, time-proven dietary principles.

“Holistic” is a word that gets tossed around a lot these days, and can be easily misused. The best way to understand holistic is to know that it literally stems from the word “whole.” So approaching a fibromyalgia diet regimen with a holistic attitude simply means considering the whole of your body. For someone with FMS, a focus on whole health equates to a focus on eating in a way that helps in the management of his or her fibromyalgia symptoms.

fibromyalgia pain reliefThe complexity of fibromyalgia requires a stronger dietary foundation

Fibromyalgia is a complex syndrome. So establishing a strong dietary foundation goes a long way in helping with medical treatment. This, too, is a way of thinking holistically about FMS symptoms and a sound fibromyalgia diet.

The nutritionists at the National Stem Cell Institute know that understanding what foods to avoid is as essential to a holistic approach in a healthy fibromyalgia diet regimen as knowing what foods to include. Not only that, but when to eat certain foods is also important.

With that in mind, let’s now turn our attention to this part of an overall, healthy fibromyalgia diet.

Going Gluten Free

Much has been made of going gluten free these days, so much so that it’s quickly becoming little more than a fad. But if you suffer from FMS, consider eliminating gluten from your diet as much as possible.

The gluten-free campaign began because of people who have a gluten-sensitive digestive system. There are many people who had no trouble with gluten prior to being diagnosed with fibromyalgia. So, for them, it may come as a surprise when their doctors and nutritionists tell them that gluten can worsen fibromyalgia symptoms. If this has happened to you, heed the advice of your medical professional and include a gluten-free or low-grain plan in your fibromyalgia diet regimen.

Gluten can worsen the symptoms of several types of diseases

Gluten, especially when derived from wheat protein, can worsen the symptoms of a wide variety of disease, including leaky gut, osteoporosis, and fibromyalgia.

Most gluten is found in grains and starches. Avoid products that include:

  • Wheat and Wheat Derivatives
  • Malt and Malt Derivatives
  • Brewer’s Yeast
  • Wheat Starch

Happily, gluten-free choices are easier to make today than ever. Look products that are made with the following:

  • Rice
  • Cassava
  • Corn
  • Soy
  • Potato
  • Tapioca
  • Beans
  • Sorghum
  • Quinoa
  • Millet
  • Buckwheat Groats
  • Arrowroot
  • Amaranth
  • Teff
  • Flax
  • Chia
  • Yucca
  • Gluten-free oats
  • Nut flours

When crafting your fibromyalgia diet plan, however, it’s important to keep in mind that FMS sufferers should not attempt to eliminate gluten-based foods too quickly. Going “cold turkey” can stress the body and even have a backlash effect that aggravates fibromyalgia symptoms.

The goal is to have a fibromyalgia diet enhance and support your therapy by retaining more nutrients and reducing symptoms such as inflammation. This means that choosing to go gluten-free is a positive step in managing and, even helping to reverse, your fibromyalgia symptoms. But doing so should be done correctly. That’s why NSI nutritionists advise FMS patients to taper off gluten on a well-planned, steady basis.

Perfect Pair: Ketogenic Diet & Stem Cell Therapy

stem cellsMore and more people are getting to know the benefits of the ketogenic diet. Why? A ketogenic diet (also known as a keto diet) focuses on the benefits of a low carbohydrate, high fat nutritional program. And while this healthy, new lifestyle trend certainly does wonders with weight management, the advantages go far beyond that.

A ketogenic diet has been shown to help control seizures caused by epilepsy, especially in the case of children, and appears to aid in the reversal of kidney disease related to both type 1 and type 2 diabetes. Continue reading “Perfect Pair: Ketogenic Diet & Stem Cell Therapy”

6 Nutritional Tips That Help COPD Conditions

Looking For COPD Nutritional Tips That Work? You’ve Come To The Right Place!

Hearing a diagnosis of COPD can be a shock. But chronic obstructive pulmonary disease doesn’t have to be debilitating. It can be managed with healthy lifestyle changes and the medical advances of the 21st century. The trick is to be pro-active when seeking the right COPD treatment as well as in making healthy choices that improve your daily quality of life. Both are easier to do today than in any other era that has come before. And there is no better choice to begin with than committing to good COPD nutritional habits.

Figuring out how to begin may seem daunting, but getting tips from an expert removes a lot of the guess work. COPD is one of the most frequently treated chronic conditions at the National Stem Cell Institute, where using stem cells for COPD treatment is paired with sound nutritional guidance from experienced counselors. The physicians and medical professionals at NSI know that proper treatment and a COPD nutritional plan under the guidance of experienced counselors can help patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease lead a more active, healthy life, often reduce dependence on medications, and get back to the things they enjoy doing most.

So let’s take a closer look at what NSI’s experts recommend as a firm foundation for COPD nutritional success. Then we’ll explore the medical advances in COPD treatment that have prestigious medical institutions like the Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic so excited about what is happening in 21st century medicine.

stem cells for COPD6 Tips For Your COPD Nutritional Needs

1. More Fiber, Less Carbs

Carbs put a load on more than just your hips. They can also overload your lungs by potentially increasing carbon dioxide production. The more carbs you take in, the more stress on the lungs. Of course, the answer isn’t to cut out carbs altogether. The key to maintaining good COPD nutritional habits is finding the right balance.

One of the best ways to keep carbs to a minimum and still get a healthy amount is to switch to whole grain products. They’re rich in fiber and are a great source of the right type of carbs. Whole grain choices can be found in breads, rice, bulgur, and quinoa, to name a few. Just remember: moderation, even with whole grains, is a key foundation in a COPD nutritional plan.

More whole grain options include:

  • Wild Rice
  • Barley
  • Whole-Wheat Pasta
  • Bran Cereal
  • Flaxseed
  • Whole Wheat

2. Love Dairy? You Can Still Have It

Some fat is healthy for you. So if you’re a milk lover, you should choose 2% milk over skim. It not only provides the right amount of fat content, it offers protein, calcium, and vitamin D. And here’s a tip to help make your new COPD nutritional regimen as great tasting as it is healthy: go with a full-fat yogurt smoothie made with fresh fruit. Like chocolate? Add a serving of dark chocolate powder. Yum!

3. Fat Isn’t All Bad

Often, COPD patients also struggle with heart trouble or weight issues. Sometimes, both. That can lead to a temptation to cut too much fat out of a daily diet. The truth is, not all fats are bad for you. The trick is to choose the right fats and the right amount of them. There’s a way to choose fats that are friendly to your COPD nutritional needs.

Go for the Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish, such as salmon. Healthy fats are also in many varieties of nuts. Love eggs, but thought you shouldn’t have them anymore? They’re back! Serve them with avocados, another healthy fat choice. And when you prepare that luscious salmon, pan fry it in olive oil. All of these will help you maintain a tasty and well-balanced COPD nutritional diet plan.

4. Pile On Fresh, High Fiber Fruits And Veggies

For COPD nutritional needs, fresh fruits and vegetables aren’t an option…they’re a necessity. But how much is enough? How much is too much? The best way to figure this out is to follow the half-plate rule.

Every meal plate should be half filled with fruits and veggies. The fresher and higher in fiber, the better. There are particular choices that are also rich in vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that are especially beneficial to people living with COPD. They include:

  • Apples
  • Bananas
  • Peaches
  • Pears
  • Fresh Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Tomatoes
  • Cucumbers
  • Cabbage
  • Broccoli
  • Squash
  • Spinach

5. Sub The Salt

You’ve heard this before: too much salt can cause or contribute to a long list of chronic conditions. Not the least of these is COPD. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is an excellent resource for scholarly articles about the risks of high sodium diets. It comes as no surprise, then, that a healthy COPD nutritional regimen will limit salt intake.

As with many important minerals, the body does need a certain amount of sodium. Your COPD nutritional plan shouldn’t cut it out altogether. But high levels of sodium increase blood pressure and leave you vulnerable to health complications that can directly affect COPD. Salt causes fluid retention which, in turn, makes breathing more difficult.

When switching to a good COPD nutritional diet plan, it’s as important to look for “hidden” salt as it is to keep your reaches for the shaker to a minimum. So get into the habit of reading every label on every food product. Choose those that have no more than 140 milligrams per serving. Less is even better.

But don’t despair! There are many salt substitutes that will actually keep you from missing that those extra doses of sodium. They include:

  • Liquid Aminos
  • Kelp Granules
  • Nutritional Yeast
  • Herbs & Spices
  • Fresh Garlic or Garlic Powder
  • Lemon Juice
  • Flavored Vinegar
  • Cumin
  • Nutmeg
  • Fresh Ground Pepper
  • Oregano

Salt substitutes not only help you maintain a healthy COPD nutritional regimen, they can even flavor your food better than that old standby salt. However, some packaged salt substitute products may include herbs or spices that are as equally unhealthy as sodium. So, when it comes to salt substitutes, it’s important to consult with your doctor or a qualified nutritionist.

Meanwhile avoid pre-salted foods, which can include the following:

  • Canned Vegetables, Soups and Vegetable Juices
  • Frozen Meals
  • Salted Snacks
  • Pickles & Olives
  • Feta Cheese & Processed Cheeses
  • Ham
  • Salami
  • Soy Sauce
  • Barbecue Sauce

6. Boost Your Magnesium

Magnesium is something everybody needs for good muscle function. But for those with COPD, it’s especially important because its antihistamine-like effects are beneficial for bronchial activity. The bronchial tubes are particularly susceptible to inflammation and the build-up of mucus. So a COPD nutritional plan that includes proper amounts of magnesium will help manage bronchial symptoms associated with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

Men who are over 31 years of age should aim for a daily magnesium intake of about 420 milligrams, while women over 31 should aim for 320 milligrams. So what type of food options especially rich in magnesium can you add to your COPD nutritional regimen? Take a look below for good examples:

  • Dark Green Vegetables
  • Whole Grains
  • Peas
  • Beans
  • Tofu
  • Raw Spinach
  • Fish (Pollock, Tuna, Turbot)
  • Avocados
  • Dark Chocolate
  • Yogurt
  • Bananas
  • Sunflower and Flax Seeds
  • Brazil Nuts, Cashews, Pecan, and Pine Nuts

Things To Avoid In A COPD Nutritional Diet

You don’t want to erase the strides you’ve made!

Now you’ve got a great start on your healthy COPD nutritional regimen. If you’re a patient at National Stem Cell Institute, you’re feeling the benefits of COPD stem cell therapy. You’re following the nutritional guidelines set down by your NSI nutritionist to enhance the healing effects and renewed energy that follows your treatments. With your feet firmly on the path to better health and improved quality of life, you don’t want to erase the strides you’ve made.

Avoiding foods that can hinder your improved health is as essential as choosing those that can enhance it. It should come as no surprise that most fried foods or processed foods are preserved with nitrates or sulfites. When shopping for groceries, it serves everyone well to read the labels. But for those who are managing the symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, it is especially important to watch what goes into the shopping cart.

Did you know that 63% of American’s calories comes from processed foods? This is a staggering statistic and has got to change. It’s especially important when mapping out a sound and healthy COPD nutritional plan.

processed foods

With that in mind, below is a sampling of foods and food additives to steer that cart away from:

  • Bacon
  • Ham
  • Hot Dogs
  • Processed, Salty Foods
  • French Fries
  • Onion Rings
  • Jalapeño Poppers
  • Fried Chicken
  • Fried Fish
  • Carbonated Soft Drinks
  • Sparkling Waters
  • Beer
  • Sparkling Wines
  • Sparkling Cider
  • Shrimp
  • Potatoes

Be Pro-Active. Know All Your Options

Healthy eating is one of the pillars of a healthy life. For those living with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, the importance of doing everything possible to manage COPD is even more critical. COPD can weaken the immune system, leaving you more susceptible to viral and bacterial infections than people without COPD usually are. The lungs of people living with COPD are especially vulnerable to diseases like pneumonia, which can have a particularly serious impact on breathing ability and health. Choosing foods and food additives that help boost immunity is an important part of a solid COPD nutritional plan.

Many thousands of sufferers in the United States are using stem cells for COPD as a safe and effective therapy

So, be proactive. Follow the guidance of a qualified, experienced counselor when choosing a sound COPD nutritional plan. But, being proactive also means exploring all your options for treating your chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. For many thousands of sufferers in the United States, using stem cells for COPD as a safe and effective therapy has returned improved quality of life beyond medications alone.

Why Is The Use Of Stem Cells For COPD Being Widely Used?

The use of stem cells for COPD treatment is one of the most common therapies sought by patients throughout the United States who are seeking a better alternative to conventional medical means. For many years now, stem cell therapy paired with COPD nutritional counseling has been growing in popularity. Not just with patients, but in the medical community at large.

Treating COPD with stem cells is not only offering remarkable improvement in life quality in the here and now, many of today’s experts medicine see regenerative medical therapies like stem cell treatment as the most likely path to a full cure. Prestigious medical facilities like the Mayo Clinic and the Cleveland Clinic both support stem cell therapy in both practice and continuing research.

Stem cell therapy is one of the greatest disease and injury fighting weapons in the 21st century medical field known as regenerative medicine

These cells are used as the basis of treatment for an ever-growing list of illnesses, injuries, and chronic conditions. From the physical to the neurological, regenerative medical methods are revolutionizing how medicine is practiced. This includes treating COPD with stem cells.

Stem cells are a kind of “proto” cell. They remain in the body throughout life, waiting to receive chemical instructions on what type of cell to become in order to replace dead cells, repair tissue damage, rejuvenate, and heal. When using stem cells for COPD as treatment, airways, air sacs, and lung tissue are heal, repair, and re-grow. Breathing is dramatically improved. Stem cells also reduce inflammation, so the production of mucus is decreased, which further improves air flow into and out of the lungs.

The healing effects of COPD stem cell therapy also contribute to a cascade of overall health improvement. These elements help in the increase of energy experienced by patients who undergo COPD stem cell treatment. An increase in energy motivates more physical activity. More physical activity, in return, helps improve energy even more. This can result in improved mood, outlook, healthy weight management, and the path to a healthier, happier lifestyle.

Treating COPD with stem cell therapy is among the most commonly sought after regenerative medicine therapies

Because of the “shape shifting” and anti-inflammatory qualities of stem cells, the treatments are able to improve multiple symptoms of COPD, whether the symptoms are asthmatic, emphysemic, or due to other underlying conditions that fall within the definition of COPD. In some cases, reversal of damage has been observed in patients who use stem cell for COPD treatment.

It’s important to keep in mind that treating your COPD with stem cell therapy is a partnership with your doctor. The symptoms of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are most often the result of lifestyle choices, with the smoking of tobacco products topping the list of causes. So anything that you can do, such as quitting smoking, will help to ensure that your COPD is not aggravated and greatly boost the results of your stem cell treatments. And, of course, following a sound COPD nutritional plan should be a part of your new, healthier lifestyle choices.

When exploring your stem cell COPD treatment options be sure seek out a medical clinic that adheres to FDA guidelines, such as NSI Stem Cell Centers

It’s best to choose a medical facility that works exclusively with the patient’s own stem cells and uses a minimally invasive procedure that strictly complies with FDA guidelines. In particular, clinics like NSI practice a method that requires only a small sample of cells removed from the patient’s fatty tissue that lies just beneath the skin. The sample is then processed to be used in a highly concentrated and potent stem cell serum. This high concentrate of stem cells is then re-introduced into the patient through a simple injection.

Using stem cells for COPD treatment through this process requires no overnight stays or general anesthesia. A local anesthetic at the site where the sample has been harvested is all that is needed. The treatment of COPD is done as an outpatient procedure, completed in a matter of hours, and the patient can return to normal activities immediately.

You can learn more about using stem cells for COPD treatment online at NSI Stem Cell Centers. The physicians and staff at NSI are always happy answer any questions you might have, if you prefer to call (877) 278-3623. Also available is a FREE brochure for downloading. And patients’ success stories about their COPD treatments can be seen on NSI’s YouTube channel.

COPD made still be listed as a disease in need of a cure. But, today, management of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is far easier than in decades past. The advances of regenerative medicine and the understanding of the impact of nutrition has made managing COPD a reality.

Be pro-active in the management of your COPD!

But, remember, like certain other chronic illnesses, such as diabetes and some autoimmune conditions, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is strongly influenced by lifestyle choices and environment. So be pro-active in the management of your condition. Through innovative, advanced regenerative therapy and a sound COPD nutritional plan you’ll be able to lead a more active and healthy life, possibly reduce your medications and get back to the things you enjoy doing most.

Benefits of Minor Nutrients and Minerals

Micronutrients, unlike the macronutrients everyone knows about like protein, carbohydrates and fat, are a special classification of vitamins and minerals the body needs to maintain a healthy balance. While they are needed in smaller quantities they are still essential and are needed in order to ensure normal metabolism, growth and overall health. There are many benefits of minor nutrients and minerals that you need to know about and getting enough nutrients can go a long way in making sure that you and your family stay healthy and strong.

“Called micronutrients because they are needed only in minuscule amounts, these substances are the “magic wands” that enable the body to produce enzymes, hormones and other substances essential for proper growth and development. As tiny as the amounts are, however, the consequences of their absence are severe” (World Health Organization). Here are some minor nutrients and minerals you need to be mindful of:

Thiamine B1 20mg

Thiamine is one of the well-known B vitamins, specifically vitamin B1. It is found in many foods such as grain, yeast, beans, nuts, and most meat. Vitamin B complexes almost always include thiamine along with other B vitamins. People are commonly prescribed a supplement of thiamine to help treat conditions affecting nerves and the circulatory system as well as to help keep healthy hormone levels during pregnancy. Thiamine is also commonly prescribed to help treat a range of digestive problems such as poor appetite, gas and bloating, ulcerative colitis, high levels of acid, and chronic diarrhea. This vitamin is also being used in treatments for AIDS and in concoctions that aim to boost the immune system, relieve severe diabetic pain, fight the effects and onset of heart disease, reduce the damage caused by alcoholism, and more. It is also believed to help with other issues such as aging, canker sores, vision problems, motion sickness, depression and anxiety, morning sickness during pregnancy, memory loss, and energy levels to mention a few more. The benefits of minor nutrients and minerals are obvious when one looks at the impact B1 can have on the body.

Riboflavin B2 0.5mg

Vitamin B2, which is commonly known as Riboflavin, is one of the vital micronutrients the body needs. It also acts as an antioxidant within the body. Vitamin B2 plays a key role in healing and regeneration of the cellular structures and in maintaining healthy blood cells. It also plays an important role in maintaining energy levels, enabling healthy metabolism levels, preventing free radical damage, protects skin and eye health, and much more! As a water-soluble vitamin, as all B vitamins are, B2 must be ingested on a regular basis and reliant on proper hydration for maximum efficiency. All B vitamins are used to help digest and extract energy from the foods you eat; and this one especially is important to preserving the health and vital functions of every single cell within your body. Compared to the other vitamins in the B family, riboflavin must be present in high enough amounts in order for all the other B vitamins to be properly absorbed and used by the body! Getting enough nutrients and the right ones are key to maintaining overall health and wellbeing.

Niacinamide B3 20mg

Niacin which also goes by the name niacinamide is one of the B vitamins- Vitamin B3 to be exact. Vitamin B3 comes from foods high in protein and healthy fats such as eggs, lean meat, nuts and grains and well as deep leafy green vegetables. Niacinamide is a common component of many B complex vitamins and is part of the balance of micronutrients needed to support healthy systems and organs throughout the body. It has been shown to have a positive impact on cholesterol levels and has also been used in the treatment of circulation problems, migraine headache, dizziness, and stomach upset. Vitamin B3 has proven to be very effective in treating symptoms of schizophrenia, hallucinations from illegal drug use, Alzheimer’s disease, depression and anxiety, motion sickness, dementia, addiction, and more! It may also prove to help conditions such as ADHD, memory loss, arthritis, digestive disorders, breathing problems, high blood pressure, impotence, and even help improve energy levels.

Pyridoxme B6 20mg

Pyridoxine is another one of the micronutrient vitamins that many people do not get enough of in their regular diet. Some foods have high levels of B6 but most people get it through the use of supplements. Pyridoxine is most commonly used along with iron to help combat symptoms of anemia and low energy levels. It is also commonly prescribed for treating symptoms of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, homocysteine, high cholesterol, and circulatory disorders. For women, Vitamin B6 is effective at treating symptoms of PMS, and during pregnancy, it can help alleviate morning sickness and help with post-partum depression. Pyridoxine is also being looked into in regards to treatments for Alzheimer’s disease, ADHD, Down Syndrome, autism, Type I and II diabetes, headaches, muscle cramps, memory issues, fatigue, vertigo, motion sickness, macular degeneration, seizures, sleep regulation, and even the prevention of some cancers and kidney stones. The benefits of minor nutrients and minerals are far-reaching and getting enough nutrients like B6 is key to staying healthy!

Methionine 15mg

A nutrient of the body that very few people have even heard of, methionine is critical to keeping the body healthy and strong and functioning as it should. High levels of methionine are usually gotten in the diet through the consumption of eggs, sesame seeds, Brazil nuts, fish, and whole grain. Most fruits and vegetables contain very little of it and the consumption of highly processed foods are thought to affect its availability within the body. Loss of methionine has been used to treat hair loss and premature greying, Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s, drug withdrawal, schizophrenia, asthma and allergies, drug and alcohol addiction, as well as anxiety and depression. Methionine is vital to the balance of the body’s systems and most people do not get enough through their diets.

Inositol 30mg

Inositol is what is sometimes called a vitamin-like substance. It is found primarily in plants but is also present in animal by-products. While it does occur naturally, it is most commonly made in a laboratory in order to ensure the proper potency and for easier dosing and consumption. Inositol has proven to be helpful in treating diabetic nerve pain, anxiety attacks, high cholesterol, ADHD, OCD, sleep disorders, several cancers, depression, autism, hair loss, polycystic ovary syndrome, impotence, schizophrenia, Alzheimer’s disease, psoriasis, and various skin conditions. It has also been used to help treat premature babies to help improve lung functions and breathing as well as in treatments of medication, relaxation, and mood control. Inositol is often prescribed in small doses and is used in conjunction with other treatment and therapy options in order to maximize results.

Choline 30mg

Choline is a mineral that is very similar in composition to the family of B vitamins. It can be made naturally by the body and it is created in the liver. It is present in foods such as muscle meats, fish, liver, nuts, spinach, wheat germ, beans, peas, and eggs. Choline has long been used for treating liver diseases that include chronic hepatitis and cirrhosis. It has also shown to be very beneficial in terms of fighting mental decline and other brain-related disorders such as depression, anxiety, memory loss, dementia, Huntington’s chorea, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, Tourette’s disease, cerebellar ataxia, seizures, and schizophrenia. It is commonly used by bodybuilders and athletes to increase stamina and boost performance levels. Choline is commonly given to women during pregnancy to help prevent birth defects and to ensure mother and baby health. It is also being investigated for its potential at preventing cancer, lowering cholesterol, and improving lung functions.

L-Camitine 75mg

L-carnitine is one of the important amino acids that are used by the body as a building block for proteins used in cellular structures throughout the body. It is a micronutrient that is naturally produced in the body. Low levels of this nutrient are most commonly the result of a genetic disorder because one is taking certain medications, or because of an illness or medical procedure that affects the production by the body. It is also used for strict vegetarians, dieters, and premature infants to help boost overall health and wellness and system health. The micronutrient can be helpful for treating conditions that range from muscle cramps and low energy levels as well as brain fog and mood disorders. Infertility, brain decline, memory issues, Rett syndrome, anorexia, diabetes, thyroid disorders, chronic fatigue syndrome, Lyme disease, heart-healthy, circulation, muscle health, and boosts in energy and endurance levels also some of L-carnitine’s benefits and demonstrated the benefits of minor nutrients and minerals we can enjoy when we eat right and keep our bodies healthy.

Conclusion

“There is growing interest in the role of the micronutrients (essential trace elements and vitamins) in optimizing health, and in prevention or treatment of disease. This stems partly from the increase in knowledge and understanding of the biochemical functions of these nutrients, but also from the extensive but less well-founded commercial claims for such substances. It is important that doctors and other health professionals are aware of the evidence for the nutritional essentiality of these substances, and for the situations where an increased intake may lead to clinical benefit” (NCBI).

What to Look for in a Stem Cell Medical Clinic

When searching for a qualified stem cell therapy center it’s important to remember that not all of them are created equal. Stem cells, when used properly, are your body’s most powerful means for healing that can repair everything from ligaments, tendons, and cartilage to organs including your liver, pancreas and lungs and even neurological tissue like your brain, nerves and spinal cord.

Unfortunately, the majority of so-called “regenerative medicine clinics” in the world aren’t trained in the latest, most technologically advanced procedures and will, therefore, provide poor results if any.

The good news is the National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) has established the most advanced stem cell and platelet rich plasma procedures on the planet which has drawn patients from all over the world as well as professional athletes and celebrities because they are recognized as the best in the world at stem cell therapy.

1. Highly trained and experienced, board-certified doctors and team members who have performed stem cell procedures on thousands of patients with incredible results.

2. Cutting edge procedures utilizing all that regenerative medicine has to offer for many chronic degenerative conditions.

3. Leading scientific researchers who follow the advanced guidelines to maximize the healing potential of your stem cells and to maintain compliance and ethics

4. Use of only the most potent and viable resource of living, viable stem cells and harvested on the same day. No vial that you can purchase will contain living stem cells. If there is no harvest then there are no stem cells.

5. Post-operative guidance for supporting stem-cell growth including rehabilitation, diet and supplement protocols. NSI is a full-service healthcare center focused on patient outcomes. Stem cell therapy is only one tool used to help improve patients’ lives.
