Stem cell therapy (SCT) and regenerative medicine are growing topics of conversation in the search for longevity and preventative wellness measures, but along with this curiosity and promise, there are also questions and myths surrounding the topic. This class’ goal is to inform our community around stem cells, stem cell therapy, and address the common questions around this growing treatment.

So, how does stem cell therapy work and what does it do? Where do the cells come from? Are there are negative side effects or contraindications with Stem Cell Therapy? Stem cells are our body’s natural internal repair system. In short, stem cells seek out damage in the body and work to regenerate damaged tissue.

In SCT practiced by Advanced Integrative Medicine, they only use human umbilical cord stem cells that are collected from hospitals across the US. The mother signs a consent form, donating the umbilical cord blood to the hospital after the live birth of a healthy baby. Only cord blood cells from healthy mothers and babies are accepted.

In a very small percentage of patients, they occasionally see a minor reaction of flu-like symptoms. This does not last more than 24-28 hours maximum. This actually demonstrates the cells’ anti-inflammatory and immune-privilege potential.

Are you curious if you are a good candidate for stem cell therapy? If you’re looking for a more natural solution towards regenerating the body, your best option is to consult with a Regenerative Medicine Expert, such as Dr. Shawn Pallotti, to discuss your specific symptoms and candidacy.

Stem Cells are specialized cells that are able to receive signals from the other cells in your body. Stem cells then seek out inflammation and degeneration and go to that location to begin repairing tissue.

Stem cells have been shown to help repair muscle, bone, cartilage and tendons. Research has indicated that stem cells can benefit a wide variety of health complications and may assist in individuals living stronger, healthier lives.
