Stem Cell Therapy Now Offered at Youthologie S

tem cells sourced from umbilical cord blood (CBSCs or cord blood stem cells) have advantages over using adult stem cells. These ad- vantages include their youth, energy, health, lifespan and greater potential. Natural Awakenings spoke with Lisa Hogan, MD about stem cell therapy: CBSCs are immune privileged. This means they do not need to match a specific blood type or HLA type. CBSCs are obtained from tissue that would otherwise be discarded. There is no harm to mother or baby and the cells are extensively tested to be certain they are safe.

Stem cells integrate into existing tissues and structures and provide a source of new cells and a source of new stem cells. In addition,

they provide growth factors and other molecular signals, which help to di- rect one’s own native stem cells and encourage healing. Stem cells home to areas of injury and inflammation, so a primary use of stem cells is to assist in healing injuries and reducing inflammation. Stem cells increase vascularity and circulation in tissues, which also speeds healing. Although stem cells are not considered a cure, they are used in many situations for improvement and enhancement. Re- missions can last for many years. Examples of the conditions stem cells have been used for are osteoarthritis, joint pain, tendon injuries, bone injuries (fractures), erectile dysfunction, atrophic vaginitis (vaginal dryness), facial

rejuvenation, scalp/hair rejuvena- tion, general anti-aging, and ath- letic enhancement. Stem cells have been used for many degenerative diseases and autoimmune disorders. Most stem cell recipients experience increased energy as well as im- provement in painful or inflammatory conditions.
