In today’s modern medicine, there are many ways that are beneficial for the body through therapy. From chiropractic care through hormone therapy, regenerative cellular therapy has been making itself known in the last few years. The body is known for making sure that everything is working properly and that each of the systems inside are doing their jobs correctly. When the body is injured from acute injuries or from chronic illness, therapy can help alleviate the symptoms that are causing the individual pain and can relieve the symptoms after each session. In this 2 part series, we will be taking a look into what is regenerative cellular treatment, what is regenerative medicine, and what are stem cells. Part 2 will be discussing more about stem cells, and the types of stem cells that are associated within our bodies. By referring patients to qualified and skilled providers that specialized in regenerative cellular therapy, we work with affiliated clinics and distributor organizations, both internationally and nationally with the services that we offer. We find that education is the key to asking valuable questions to our providers. Dr. Jimenez DC provides this information as an educational service only. Disclaimer

What Is Regenerative Cellular Treatment?
From the ablest individuals to older individuals, many clinicians continue to search for ways to control pain and accelerate the healing process. Regenerative cellular treatment is defined as the process of replacing and regenerating cells, tissues, or organs to be established in a normal function. By utilizing various regenerative medicine therapies have proven to have many profound benefits; not the least of which includes overall superior outcomes. Studies have shown that regenerative cellular treatment has been represented as a valuable tool to help cure conditions from both acute injuries and chronic diseases that the body has suffered.
Dawning on the horizon of medical advancements these therapies hold the strong healing potential whose benefits have the power to span disciplines as diverse as hair restoration and orthopedics. Other research studies show that when the rise of chronic diseases and the associated process of degenerative tissue was becoming evident, the development of regenerative cellular treatment was starting to form. Regenerative cellular treatment can help the body by doing the following:
- Dampening the effects of congenital defects
- Improve tissue function
- Restore the whole organ
- Repair cellular activity in the body
What is Regenerative Medicine?
So regenerative medicine is a form of tissue engineering and molecular biology that deals with “the process of replacing, engineering or regenerating human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish
normal function.” When the body has been injured or has been invaded by chronic diseases, it will have an innate response to heal and defend. Studies show that with the use of regenerative medicines, the damaged organs and tissues will begin to heal and normalize the congenital effects of the body.
By harnessing and enhancing the body’s own regenerative powers is a medical practice at the frontier of present-day advancements whose properties can seem miraculous to those who benefit from them. The miracle, however, is the result of scientific exploration that has begun to unlock and utilize the body’s extraordinary ability to heal and restore itself. Other studies show that through the usage of cell and tissue therapy in regenerative medicine can even help dampen the effects of certain chronic disease dysfunctions like:
- Lesions in the joints and bones
- Musculoskeletal disorders
- Neurodegenerative diseases
- Growth hormone deficiencies
What Are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are the body’s own raw material that all other cells with special functions are generated. Research shows that stem cells are grown in a lab and can provide many beneficial properties from being implanted into the injured individual. Stem cells can help with the repair response of any tissue that has been either diseased or dysfunctional. Stem cell therapy is also known as regenerative medicine and there are currently two different ways that people are getting regenerative treatments in the United States. Autologous, which means it comes directly from the patient being treated and allogeneic which is that the product is donated from a donor of the same species (in this case another human). By utilizing stem cells through therapy, the body can begin the healing process and can dampen the effects of a number of degenerative diseases that are causing harm to a person. If a person has depleted their regenerative properties and their bodies do not have enough to handle the problems, then introducing stem cells to the body, can dampen the degenerative effects from progressing further.
As a result, the body will always go through a process of degeneration since cells and hormone levels always decline naturally due to age. When a body is young and full of energy, they have enough resources to regenerate their cells but as the body gets older with age, the degeneration will take over and the individual will begin to notice that their body is not healing quickly as it should be. By using regenerative cellular treatment, the body can being the process of restoring and repairing the damaged cells in the body. Thus the individual can being their wellness journey and their bodies can function normally as well as continue living life to the fullest.
