IV Stem Cells
What is IV Stem Cell Therapy?
A stem cell procedure amplifies the body’s natural mechanism for healing and potentially decrease body inflammation. This mechanism uses umbilical stem cells derived from human umbilical cord. Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) have been shown to be anti-inflammatory, which helps in healing, and they also have antimicrobial properties. MSCs regulates the immune system, which may stop the immune system from attack your own body.
What Medical Conditions will benefit from IV Stem Cells?
- Stroke Damage Stem Cell Therapy.
- Autism Spectrum Treatment.
- Cerebral Palsy Treatment.
- Heart Failure Treatment.
- Multiple Sclerosis Treatment.
- Osteoarthritis Treatment.
- Rheumatoid Arthritis.
- Autoimmune Diseases.
What to expect about the procedure?
In the procedure, the physician either aspirate bone marrow from the iliac crest of your pelvis or use UCB or both; then deliver it back into your body intravenously. Results usually last years. Patient is follow up by decrease in body markers inflammation like CRP and ESR.
Conditions for which IV stems cells therapy had proven to work:
1) Bronchial Asthma
Asthma is a common chronic inflammatory disease of the airways. Symptoms include wheezing, coughing, chest tightness, shortness of breath, reversible airflow obstruction, and bronchospasm. The infusion of mesenchymal stem cell therapy will potentially stimulate the immune system to repair itself. Stem cell therapy may contribute to the regeneration of lung tissue, which may lead to a reduction in the incidence of asthma attacks and their duration. Stem cell therapy in patients with asthma may increase resistance to colds and infectious diseases, which in turn may reduce the frequency of the attacks Stem cell therapy may reduce the allergic response of the lungs to allergens, including house dust, animal dander, pollen, and foods.
2) Rheumatoid Arthritis
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is an autoimmune disease in which the patient’s immune system develops antibody responses to various components of the joints, such as type I collagen. This immune response leads to joint destruction and serious systemic complications. The use of intravenous infusion of mesenchymal stem cells to help with joint destruction, pulmonary fibrosis, renal damage, and heart damage, possibly controlling damage done by RA.
Osteoarthritis occurs when the protective cartilage on the ends of your bones wears out. It occurs most commonly affects joints in the hands, knees, ankles, hips and spine. Damage to these joints can be treated with intravenous infusions of mesenchymal stem cells to possibly help alleviate pain. Stem cell therapy may be an ideal non-surgical alternative for those who suffer from pain because of osteoarthritis. Stem cell therapy requires only an injection of concentrated stem cells into the injured area or Intravenously.
Fibromyalgia is a chronic disease characterized by pervasive muscle pain, lethargy, attention issues, and sleep problems. The severity of symptoms can vary from one person to the next and may vary even in a single individual, depending on factors such as time of day or the weather. Its more common seen in women.
It is believed that IV stem cell procedure may harness and amplify the body’s natural mechanism for healing. Mesenchymal have been shown to be anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and immune regulatory properties, which may help in healing of fibromyalgia. Stem cell therapy is one of many measures of care and is by no means currently considered a cure.
Fibromyalgia is also addressed with IM L-Carnitine and IV NUTRITION along with hormone replacement. Each patient will show different responses to each therapy.
IV Stem Cell therapy
Intravenous (IV) stem cell therapy is an innovative treatment whereby stem cells are administered intravenously to aid quick healing and regeneration of damaged tissues and organs.
When stem cells are administered intravenously, they travel through your bloodstream and become available to all organs and tissues in your body. The idea of IV stem cells is to naturally seek out damaged tissues or organs in any part of your body and promote healing and repair of the damaged tissues or organs. Stem cells replenish and replicate the type of cells in the damaged tissues or organs. Instead of using medications, supplements, surgery for treatment of damaged tissues and organs, IV stem cell therapy is able to spread healthy cells throughout the body to promote quick healing.
What is the cost of IV stem therapy?
The cost of stem cell therapy can range anywhere between $5000 – $50,000 depending on the condition being treated, level of treatment, location, and provider. It is advisable that you consult with your primary healthcare provider and make more research about the financial implications of the treatment.
Does insurance cover IV stem cell therapy?
Stem cell therapy is still regarded as an experimental medical procedure. For now, health insurance does not cover IV stem cell therapy.
Benefits of IV stem cell therapy
IV stem cell therapy can help in the treatment and improvement of several different conditions. Some of its benefits include;
- Increase energy levels and stamina
- Increase muscle strength and tone
- Improve symptoms of arthritis and joint pain
- Heal injuries from sports or accidents
- Improve skin tone and facial appearance
- Improve erectile and sexual dysfunction
- Improve peripheral neuropathy
- Enhance hair growth
Does IV stem cell therapy really work?
A lot of patients have given positive reports on the improvements in their conditions after undergoing IV stem cell therapy. By administering high concentrations of stem cells intravenously, the stem cells are able to go into the bloodstream and move to every part of the body in a relatively short time. The stem cells move throughout the body looking for damaged tissues or organs. When they get to any damaged tissue or organ, they divide and replicate the cells of the damaged tissue or organ with new healthy cells. IV stem therapy promotes the regeneration of damaged tissues or organs.
