Stem cells are specialized cells that exist throughout your body. Stem cells regenerate into new cells -- either new stem cells or specialized cells that your body needs for healing, such as heart cells, nerve cells, or muscle cells.
Adult stem cells are taken from an adult person and can be programmed to develop into various kinds of other cells. These cells have the potential to specialize and transform other cells in the body.
Stem cells are harvested from adults or acquired from donated placentas and grafted or injected into the skin, joints, or other body parts to stimulate regeneration and growth. Stem cell therapy is still in the development phase but has shown potential in helping people recover from strokes, manage diabetes, and overcome spinal cord injuries.
Stem cell therapy can help with repair and regeneration of damaged, degenerated, or injured tissue. Stem cell therapy is best applied to conditions that break the body’s tissues down. These conditions include, but are not limited to:
Stem cell therapy can also boost hair growth in people who have alopecia, thinning hair, or male or female pattern balding.
Many of these conditions and associated issues are a result of problems in the body that need either repair or complete regeneration. In many instances, the body is unable to properly repair the injury or address damage from an illness due to its severity. Your number of stem cells also depletes as you age, so you just may not have enough of these healing cells available at areas in need of healing.
Stem cell therapy proposes that by growing stem cells that can turn into other cells, you can actually stimulate the rejuvenation of cells in injured areas of the body and promote healing.
