What is regenerative medicine?
Regenerative medicine describes a revolutionary approach to slow the signs of aging, and ward off chronic disease, help heal injuries, and manage pain. Platelet-rich plasma or PRP and stem cell therapy are hallmark regenerative medicine therapies. Renew Total Body Wellness Center also offers ozone therapy and membrane therapy.
This collection of treatments can address arthritis, tendon issues, sexual dysfunction, pain, urinary incontinence, and immunity. Regenerative medicine also holds promise in delaying the ailments of aging.
PRP or platelet rich plasma is generated from your own blood by centrifuging it and removing the platelet rich plasma, which is a small separated component of your blood. The PRP has concentrated healing factors that are then injected into specific areas that need treatment and healing. We use Your body to heal Your body! Click HERE for more PRP information
How are mesenchymal stem cells used in regenerative medicine?
Research shows mesenchymal stem cells have reparative value because they can stimulate many different types of tissue cells as they release their healing factors. Mesenchymal stem cells act as an initial repair system stimulator in many tissues.
With mesenchymal stem cell therapy, your provider at Renew Total Body Wellness Center can augment your body’s natural ability to heal as the number of stem cells we have available to do the job decreases as we age. They may be helpful for damaged and deteriorated knees, hips, and other joints that experience significant wear-and-tear. Your provider may also use Wharton’s jelly, a substance that surrounds the umbilical cord, and amniotic stem cells for therapy.
How does ozone therapy work with regenerative medicine treatments?
High dose ozone can boost healing by encouraging your body to release more of your own stem cells from your bone marrow. Ozone therapy can also:
- Improve cellular respiration.
- Stimulate of stem cell production to facilitate healing
- Encourage white blood cell production and hence the immune system
- Increase the production of cancer and infection fighting cells
- Enhance red blood cell membrane flexibility and effectiveness
- Optimize the Krebs citric acid cycle function to stimulate metabolism and energy levels
- Increase of the antioxidant enzyme system, which scavenges free radicals
- Inactivate viruses, bacteria, fungi, and protozoans
Ozone, (O3), is an energized form of oxygen that contains three atoms of oxygen rather than the two atoms people normally breathe. Ozone occurs quite readily in nature, most often as a result of lightning strikes that occur during thunderstorms. By harnessing the healing potential of these natural forms of oxygen, you heal faster and improve your wellbeing.
What is membrane therapy?
Damage to cell membranes can occur when the normal healthy lipids that make up these barriers are replaced with abnormal lipids. This happens when you eat poor quality, processed foods such as trans fats and oxidized cooking oils. Your membranes become stiff as a result and permeable to unwanted compounds, such as chemicals, toxins, and even viruses and bacteria. This damages your own cells' ability to heal and maintain your health.
Membrane therapy addresses the health of the cell membrane, which, in turn, improves the overall health of your cells and thus your overall state of being.
