How to Find a Reliable Stem Cell Therapy


Posted by skymedicus STAFF on 7/27/2017 2:13 PM | Last Modified: September 26, 2017


Choosing the right stem cell therapy is a big task when there is not as much reliable information on the kinds of therapies available. First, it is important to understand what stem cells are. Stem cells essentially are blank cells that can be used to heal, repair, and replace damaged cells in the body through their natural properties. This type of treatment differs from drug treatments in that components of the patient's body are being used as treatment instead of drugs, which have their own risks. Stem cells exist in the human body and can be extracted from bone marrow or, more commonly, fat. When taken from fat deposits, the stem cells are called 'adipose.' These cells are taken out of the body in a process similar to liposuction, spun to separate the different components, and then the adipose cells are reintroduced to the body.

This is the general process, but each therapy is going to be different and give different results, based on the type of stem cell, how much is used, and the injection site. The best sources for more information are the doctors themselves, who you can communicate with directly through the SkyMedicus system. An important question to ask is what the affects of the therapy will be. Most stem cell treatments will enter the afflicted tissue, stimulate healing, and reduce inflammation. Beyond that, certain therapies are able to treat ALS, multiple sclerosis, autism, alzheimer's, erectile dysfunction, macular degeneration, spinal cord injuries, stroke, burns, heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis, among other diseases and disorders.

Another question to ask your doctor is about the successful results in patients who have been treated before. Most stem cell therapies will use cells taken from your body, called autologous, so there is less of a chance of your body rejecting the cells. Everyone's body reacts differently to stem cell therapies, so it is a good idea to ask him or her about the results that are typically seen. Ask about follow-up treatments and any take-home medication.

If a stem cell therapy is something that you are considering, but you feel like you do not have enough information, talk to a stem cell doctor in the SkyMedicus system - you will be able to ask about outcomes, risks, and anything else that you want to know.
