What are Adult Stem Cells?

Imagine your body is a log cabin, made by the strong trees that stand around it. When you have a broken door, leak in the roof, or other issue, you can simply use the trees surrounding you to fix the damaged parts of the house.

That’s how Adult Stem Cells work in your body. They are the trees – special cells that have the ability to divide and reproduce indefinitely to replenish dying cells or fix damaged tissues. Everyone has adult stem cells throughout their body and when you’re sick or hurt, these cells go and fix the damaged areas. Like the cabin, your body is already made from the same materials as the “trees” used to repair it – so it’s easy and natural for these stem cells to replace and repair damage in your body.

Researchers believe that adult stem cells can and will become highly-effective tools for treating many diseases that were difficult or impossible to cure. The trees are already in your backyard, so why not use them to help save live

How does adult stem cell therapy work?

A house is at its strongest when it is first built…but over time the house will experience everyday wear and tear. Your body is like the house. When you were born, your body had the most stem cells it will ever have, but as they are used to overcome the daily wear and tear of life, the number of stem cells decreases over time.

During youth, your stem cells multiply very efficiently, but this ability to multiply naturally decreases over time. Every 30 days before a child is born, one stem cell becomes 1 billion new cells; at age 20, it produces 32,000 cells in the same time, and at age 65, only 200 new cells.

In people with debilitating injuries or diseases, the naturally decreasing stem cells cannot multiply fast enough to keep up with the physical deterioration. Adult stem cell therapies can help people overcome these conditions by replenishing their dying stem cells and allowing their body to fight back.

FAQ’s

How do they work?

Adult stem cells find and repair damaged areas in our bodies through cell regeneration.

How safe are they?

No patients who have have received this therapy have experienced negative effects.

Are they ethically responsible?

Adult stem cells should not be confused with embryonic stem cells. Both the catholic and Southern Baptist Church support the use of adult stem cells as a means of medical therapy.

What is the legal status of using this therapy?

In May of 2017 “Charlies Law” was passed into law in Texas through HB-810. For the first time ever in the United States it is now legal for patients to receive medical therapy with expanded adult stem cells such as MSCs.

What are MSCs?

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSC) have proven to be the most effective type of adult stem cell. They are found on every single blood vessel in the human body.  These are the key for our bodies to be alive, each person has an innumerable amount of MSCs throughout  their body.
