Stem Cells – The Bodies Natural Repair System
Stem Cells Help Your Body To Do What It Was Created To Do
With all that is being said about the stem cell therapy, you’re probably just wondering, “what are stem cells and why they are important to your body?”
Well, if that’s what you’ve pondered about then, it will interest you to know that “a stem cell is an undifferentiated cell of a multicellular organism that is capable of giving rise to indefinitely more cells of the same type and from which certain other kinds of cells arise by differentiation”.
Simply put, stem cells are your body’s internal repair system that has the remarkable ability to develop into many different cell types in the body. They are the foundational cells of our bodies and they have the capacity to repair damaged tissues and replace lost cells on a daily basis.
For instance, when our body is attacked by disease or we sustained an injury, stem cells respond to those specific chemical signals and then go about facilitating healing by differentiating into the specialized cells our bodies need in order to repair itself. Stem cells have the ability to help restore damaged organs or diseased tissue and they do that by creating certain growth factors and other body chemicals that promote repair. This is the essence of regenerative medicine.
Is My Stem Cell Supply Sufficient?
This is one of the questions people ask as soon as they are enlightened about regeneration process. The truth is, “your stem cell supply may not be sufficient”. The reason is that as we age, our body degenerates because the amount of stem cells in our body decreases with time and that leads to the diminishing of our body’s ability to repair itself.
However, a re-infusion of stem cells can help wake up our bodies natural repair system and processes. Your body has been designed to heal itself. Stem cells are a part of your body system that enables it to repair damaged tissue, reduce inflammation and balance your immune system. So, when stem cells are injected into the body or administered through an IV, they seek out the degeneration and inflammation and proceed to repair the damaged tissue or organ.
