Stem cells are unique cells that maintain and repair tissue. These cells are non-specialized, so they can become whatever type of cell is needed for healing. Instead of having a role – such as a heart cell – they can morph into what’s needed for healing. As you age, your natural production of stem cells slows, leading to slower healing times.
Stem cell therapy involves injecting stem cells directly into areas of inflammation, so they secrete growth factors and help with healing. A general injection of stem cells can also help improve your overall well-being and reduce chronic pain. Dr. Warren also uses Wharton’s jelly, a substance that surrounds the umbilical cord, as a source of stem cells, as well as a source of exosomes (healing agent).
Stem cells address a wide variety of conditions and promote continued wellness. They can:
Dr. Warren evaluates your condition to determine if stem cell therapy is right for you. Stem cell therapy can also provide an overall improvement in your well-being by decreasing inflammation and deter the development of conditions such as heart disease and dementia.
Stem cells can be effective in treating pain or injury to:
For example, stem cells can be used to heal hip pain, knee injuries, and other joint problems. In addition, the cells have an immune-modulatory effect, so they can fight chronic autoimmune conditions, such as Lupus or rheumatoid arthritis.
Stem cells also have aesthetic applications. They can help revitalize hair growth and boost skin health and appearance. The hair restoration programs are very effective.
Stem cells are a unique type of cell because they can become many different types of cells as they mature. Stem cells serve as an initial repair system in many tissues and specify to particular tissue if needed. Dr. Warren also uses Wharton’s jelly, a gelatinous substance that surrounds the umbilical cord to obtain the stem cells and other birth cell and tissue products.
As you age, you produce fewer and fewer stem cells and thus lose this natural ability to heal. You also lose them through normal wear and tear, injury, and disease. The stem cells you do have left are often compromised by toxins around you, including alcohol, medications, and stress.
At Regenerative Wellness Center, Dr. Warren introduces umbilical stem cells to your body to stimulate the growth of your natural stem cells. The introduced stem cells also encourage your body to produce growth factors and other messenger chemicals to boost healing.
Umbilical cells are ethically collected from umbilical cords and placentas but do no harm to the baby or mother. The benefits of these tissues are that they contain a unique type of cell known as a mesenchymal stems cells (MSCs). These MSCs boost the overall quality of your body's ability to heal itself.
Stem cell treatment is performed on an outpatient basis at Regenerative Wellness Center, meaning you go home the same day. A session lasts about one and half hours and involves minimal to no downtime. You can usually go right back to your normal daily activities afterward. The exact process for your stem cell therapy depends on your individual treatment plan.
