Aging is a natural, complex process; the cumulative effect of genetics, environmental impacts, and normal wear and tear on our bodies eventually take their toll in a myriad of different ways. It is this consequence of living your life that can simply bring unavoidable health problems.
Over time, the cells of the body become progressively damaged and die. Dead cells are replaced too slowly to compensate for this loss. The signs of aging begin to appear along with health issues like impaired hearing and vision; loss of muscle strength and bone mass; decreased immunity and cognition, and inefficient metabolism.
Aging cells contribute to disease. If aging in cells can be prevented, slowed down, or even reversed, many diseases could be controlled or cured. Stem cell research and related regenerative medicine therapies are being looked at for providing solutions to many of life’s problems.
Antiaging Benefits of Stem Cells
Stem cell therapies are the ultimate anti-aging treatment. They are unique because they use a patient’s own stem cells and can be transplanted where they are needed. Treatments replenish the body with a fresh supply of concentrated stem cells to allow the repair and rejuvenation process in all organs, including skin. This is where the most obvious effects can be seen.
Unlike plastic surgery that addresses surface looks alone and not the cause, stem cells replace, regrow, repair and rejuvenate on a cellular level that goes far beyond appearances. They restore more youthful levels of energy and resolve age-related damage to face, body, and organs.
Anti-aging therapy improves the overall health, strength, and function of organs and cells, making them younger, stronger, and robust. They allow you to be more active and feel youthful again.
Stem Cells and Regenerative Therapy
Regenerative therapies have the purpose of helping regenerate or replace tissues and cells in the body to help restore normal functions. There are only a few types of regenerative medicine treatments. Most have to do with stem cells and helping the body to use those stem cells to heal itself.
When you are injured, blood platelets rush to the site of injury to clot a wound. That is how you get a scab. However, you have stem cells in your body that lie dormant until your body sends out signals that it needs help repairing itself.
Stem cells follow your blood platelets to the site of your injury and get to work to rebuild your tissues and cells in that area. If you have a cut on your skin, stem cells transform into skin cells and start to rebuild the area. Without stem cells, your body could clot, but it couldn’t heal itself. However, you are only born with a certain amount of stem cells, and the amount you have diminishes as you age. With stem cell therapy (a type of regenerative medicine), we can inject extra stem cells into the site of an injury or the site of your chronic pain.
Tips to Strengthen your Stem Cells
1.- Sleep: According to Standford studies lack of sleep diminishes Stem Cells activity up to 50%, so in order to get the best out of stem cell therapy we recommend you to sleep a minimum of 6 hours per night.
2.- Relax: Stress affects your overall health but when it comes to Stem Cells it damages your DNA causing you to age faster.
3.- Skip the Sugar: A high sugar intake destroys your stem cells along with many other treats for your health. So next time skip the sugar.
4.- Fasting: It’s being scientifically proved that fasting for a few hours has the power to boost your stem cells activity up to 20%, so consider going on intermittent fasting for stronger stem cells. Check out our blog post on The Benefits of Intermittent Fasting and find our more details on how to get started and all its benefits.
