Chronic diseases are conditions that continue over a long time. These diseases can hinder the lifestyle of someone and may create activity limitations. Some chronic diseases are arthritis or the wear and tear on joints, cancer, or an uncontrollable growth of abnormal cells in the body, stroke, which is a blockage of blood flow to the brain. A heart attack is a blockage of blood flow to the heart; obesity a chronic health condition that is a risk factor of arthritis, stroke, asthma, heart attack, type 2 diabetes, and other issues. Stem cells have also been shown to reduce the symptoms associated with lung conditions like COPD significantly.
Stem cells can be used to treat chronic disease as these cells travel to inflamed areas by using a chemical signal. In chronic conditions, this process is compromised, and stem cells need to be processed and introduced to the affected areas. This can be done by extracting, isolating, and concentrating your adult stem cells, and reintroducing these cells into your bloodstream.
The process is to infuse these stem cells into your bloodstream in much larger numbers and concentrations than is normal. At this point, there are a large number of stem cells circulating in the blood. These newly introduced stem cells travel toward the chronic inflammation. Once at the damaged site, introduced stem cells dominate the injured area and replace dead and damaged cells. When stem cells are infused into the body, their ability to heal is exponentially greater than occurs naturally in the body.
Research shows that adipose or fat tissues hold the greatest concentration of adult stem cells. These stem cells are used by isolating them from a small sample of fat taken from the abdominal area of the patient. When the fat sample is taken, it is processed, and the stem cells are removed from the fat. These stem cells are cleaned and concentrated.
Concentrated stem cells are infused into the bloodstream to treat many different types of chronic diseases. They regenerate damaged or aging tissue to improve age-related conditions.
