What Are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are a special type of cell produced primarily by the bone marrow. Most cells in the body have a specialized function and are adapted and specially formed to suit it: for example, muscle cells are long and thin with the unique property of contracting when exposed to electrical current, while squamous cells, which are found on the surface of many internal tracts such as the esophagus or the bladder, are wide and flat. Stem cells, however, are more ambiguous: they have no specified function, and can instead change into other types of cells under certain conditions. In addition to this property, stem cells possess anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and immune regulatory properties, which can make them useful in treating a variety of systemic conditions.
Advantages of IV Stem Cell Treatment
IV stem cell treatment involves taking stem cells from your bone marrow or another source, then injecting them directly into the bloodstream via IV, producing a large burst of stem cells that circulate through the body. These stem cells can then integrate with damaged or dysfunctional tissue, stimulating the body’s own natural healing processes. Stem cell therapy can be effective for certain systemic conditions because the stem cells are able to integrate with any dysfunctional tissue, whether in the brain, the nervous system, the muscular system, or the immune system.
What Conditions Can Stem Cell Therapy Treat?
IV stem cell therapy can be effective for a wide range of systemic (whole-body) conditions, but ultimately, it depends on the specific medical situation of the patient. Dr. Abellera will work with you to fully understand your own medical history and condition, then decide if IV stem cell therapy should be a part of your treatment plan. That said, IV stem cell therapy may be used to treat:
- Spinal cord injury or damage
- Parkinson’s disease
- Immunodeficiency disorders
- Autoimmune diseases
- Muscular diseases
