Stem cell therapy is a promising area of medical advancement in the 21st Century. What are stem cells, and why is this an exciting therapy in medicine?

Stem cells are found throughout the body in different types of tissue. These cells, commonly known as adult stem cells, are in tissues in the brain, bone marrow, blood, skeletal muscle, skin, and liver. They remain in a non-dividing state, called “undifferentiated,” until activated by disease or tissue injury.

Mesenchymal adult stem cells were initially found in bone marrow but also exist in various other tissues, such as adipose (fat) tissue, umbilical cord blood, and muscle. Interestingly, these adult stem cells can divide or self-renew indefinitely, enabling them to “differentiate,” or change, into a range of other specialized cell types. The challenge with stem cells is identifying and picking out the cells that can both self-renew (generate more of themselves) and change into three main cell types – bone, cartilage, and fat.

Stem Cell Therapy Helps Repair Cells

Significant recent advances in science have now been made with stem cells. Mesenchymal adult stem cells can help repair tissue and renew cells, which may help with a variety of chronic or degenerative conditions:

  • chronic pain
  • degenerative joints
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • autoimmune conditions
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • and more

Stem cells may also slow aging for improved performance and a more youthful appearance. They can stimulate new blood vessel growth in damaged tissues and reduce free radicals by enhancing the antioxidant effect of new, younger cells. It is important to note that not all stem cells are of the same quality and potency.

Stem Cell Therapy at Sanoviv

At Sanoviv, we have researched sources to provide the highest quality cells. We carefully screen human donors using strict criteria matched to each patient. We use cells derived from the placenta and the umbilical cord blood, rich in stem cells. These are self-renewing, adult, multipotent stem cells that can change into many types of cells, including cartilage, bone and bone marrow, fat, muscle, nerve cells, and all 10 kinds of blood cells.

We administer the stem cells within 72 hours, once cultivated and harvested, to ensure their safety and potency. They are given via IV or injection when dealing with localized conditions such as degenerative joints. The Sanoviv Stem Cell Rejuvenation program includes a variety of other integrative therapies. The program design helps maximize the efficacy of your stem cell treatments.
