The Difference Adipose Stem Cells Can Make
With Big Pharmacy and powerful CEOs governing much of the medical field today, it is little wonder many seem to have lost sight of the ultimate goal- to help people and do everything possible to prevent the symptoms from returning. This is finally changing! Imagine being able to use your own cells to address illness and disease and to improve your overall health and well-being. Imagine being able to help yourself heal with the cells that occur naturally in your own body.
Sound like a fantasy? Well, it’s not. It is a reality that many are discovering thanks to new advances in adipose stem cell therapy! Using potent regenerative cells found in fatty tissues (adipose) throughout the body, it is possible to heal the body, regenerate damaged cells, and improve health and functionality of vital organs throughout the body. So how did we get to this point where adipose-derived and bone marrow-derived stem cells are changing medicine today? What do these types of cells have to offer us?
History of Adipose Derived Stem Cells
The stem cell is a special type of naturally occurring cell that can be found in the human body. Now we know that these cellular powerhouses are what causes the body to regenerate and heal itself. If you fall and scrape your knee, it is stem cells that help the cells in that area repair themselves. They also help new healthy cells to grow and replace skin and nerve cells that were lost because of the injury.
They are an amazing part of the human body, and these powerful cells are opening new doors to therapies that are improving the lives of many across the country and around the world. Many of the stem cells used today in medical applications, like those done here at NSI, are adipose stem cells. A few decades ago, stem cells were first discovered inside developing human embryos, which unleashed a flurry of ethical concerns and a lot of red tape and protesting of further research into the use of these powerhouse cells. Most people know only of this controversial method of harvesting stem cells but, fortunately, we now know that adult stem cells can be harvested and used in therapies. With easy access to adult human adipose-derived stem cells, there is no need to deal with embryonic cells any longer.
In fact, adipose-derived stem cells are now preferred over bone marrow or umbilical cord blood/amniotic stem cells. Why? Because neither bone marrow nor umbilical/amniotic tissue store stem cells in the same abundance as the fatty tissue that lies just beneath our skin. The remarkable abundance and ease of access have unleashed the wonderfully regenerative power of these cells for many more people. Our team here at NSI has years of experience working with adipose stem cells and applied therapies, so give us a call to see for yourself what we can do for you! Adipose stem cell therapy is changing the way people look at medicine and is offering patients another alternative to harmful medications and risky surgeries.
Advances in Adipose Derived Stem Cell Therapy
These stem cells are easily obtained by collecting a generous amount of fatty tissue cells with a liposuction-like procedure. Common harvest areas are the stomach, thighs, buttocks, and arms. Once the adipose tissue has been collected, the stem cells are extracted into a concentrated slurry that packs a powerful regenerative punch. This slurry is then reintroduced when it is injected into the body at the site of the condition being addressed.
These cells then begin to replicate, and with their built-in differentiating powers they can change into new muscle, skin, blood, bone, tissue, and nerve cells! These cells start to repair the damage and rebuild tissue so symptoms such as pain and weakness are relieved. The advances in stem cell therapy over the last ten years have been amazing, and they just keep coming as we continue to learn about the power of adipose stem cells.
Adipose-derived stem cells are changing the face of medicine today. Many health concerns that were deemed to be untouchable 10 years ago are now being addressed with stem cells from fat. Just a few of the illnesses, injuries, and disorders that have responded to stem cells from fat tissue include:
- Allergies, asthma, sinusitis, COPD, and more
- Back, vertebrae, neck, shoulder, spine, and head injuries
- Traumatic brain injury, aneurysm, and similar conditions
- Erectile dysfunction and infertility
- Male and female hair loss
- Sports and work-related injuries
- Multiple sclerosis and spinal conditions
- Fibromyalgia and other nerve disorders
- Kidney and heart failure
- Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, and other degenerative conditions
- Cancers – particularly lung, brain, stomach, kidney, and skin
- Acne, psoriasis, eczema, hives, and other skin disorders
- Depression, mood swings, and anxiety
- Hormonal imbalances in both men and women
- Autism and learning delays and developmental problems
- And much, much more!
Contact Us to Learn More About Adipose Stem Cell Therapy
Here at NSI, we help patients who are suffering from damaged or diseased tissue just about anywhere in the body with our state of the art adipose-derived stem cell therapy options. A host of illnesses, injuries, disorders, and diseases can be helped, and many patients can benefit from cellular therapy and regenerative medicine.
All manner of stem cells are proving to be game-changers, but adipose-derived stem cells are leading the way as one of the most concentrated sources and the single most accessible source available. Stem cells from fat can be harvested, prepared, and administered in a single day, making adipose-derived stem cell therapy a quick and easy therapy option that is minimally invasive and requires no surgery.
Initial improvements can be evident within a few hours after the therapy in some cases, and in most cases, patients report seeing signs of improvement within a few days. Results can last a few months to years depending on the condition being addressed, the location of the targeted area, the severity of the condition at the time of therapy, and personal factors such as patient biology and body condition.
Additional therapy sessions may be needed to reach full potential for healing, and many of our patients do come back to us several times for additional or follow up sessions to achieve optimal and sustained results. Even if a therapy session is needed every year or two, it is an extremely worthwhile trade-off for living life free of pain and other effects of medical conditions instead of living a life of discomfort because of an injury. It is all possible with stem cells from fat reserves in your own body. Amazing!
The National Stem Cell Institute (NSI) of Florida is a leader in the stem cell field of regenerative medicine, and we specialize in fat-derived stem cell uses. Patient health and comfort are always our first priority, and we are proud of the reputation for excellence that we have within the community. Call us today to learn more about how we can help you live your life on your own terms once again with human adipose stem cells and stem cell therapies! You owe it to yourself to see what we can do to help you with adipose-derived stem cells.
Read This Abstract On Adipose vs. Bone Marrow
Abstract : Bone marrow concentration (BMC) is the most recognized procedure to prepare mesenchymal stem cells for cartilage regeneration. However, bone marrow aspiration is highly invasive and results in low stem cell numbers. Recently, adipose tissue-derived stromal vascular fraction (AT-SVF) was studied as an alternate source of stem cells for cartilage regeneration.
