What Are Stem Cells, And How Can IV Therapy Help You? 

Stem cells are a popular topic in the science and medical industry, and with good reason. They have amazing capabilities that allow our body to regenerate cells. Stem cells and IV therapy are known as regenerative medicine, which works to help our body focus on any weak or injured tissues and cells. It is an excellent resource for understanding many ailments and has given us a plethora of information related to disease progression. Let’s take a closer look at this innovative therapy.

What is a stem cell?

Stem cells are generated from other cells that have specific functions. They, in turn, create more cells, called ‘daughter cells.’ These daughter cells can become new cells or become specialized. Specialized cells are be geared towards specific tissues or functions, such as brain or heart muscle cells. No other cell in our body has this ability, making stem cells truly unique and fascinating.

There are different types of stem cells, such as pluripotent stem cells and adult stem cells. Pluripotent cells are embryonic and have been used in some treatments to ‘reprogram’ adult cells due to their ability to be more flexible and dynamic in nature. Adult stem cells are generated throughout life and repair the body, and must be ‘activated’ by a need to replicate.

Why is this so important?

The critical component of stem cells that makes them so interesting is their ability to self-renew and change functions. These types of cells replicate and determine where they should go. They get triggered in certain stages, which informs them on the direction they should take.

While much about stem cells is still being studied and understood, they allow our body to redirect cells to the place of need, such as damaged tissues. By monitoring how stem cells react biologically, we can begin to understand how ailments and diseases develop. It also allows us to see what may be effective in fighting those diseases, such as certain treatments or pharmaceuticals.

What can stem cells treat?

Stem cells have been shown to effectively halt the progression and help treat diseases such as Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, ALS, diabetes, and multiple sclerosis. There are also current clinical trials for therapies focused on the ocular (eye) and dental systems.

In neurological tissues, stem cells were able to mimic dopaminergic neurons, allowing them to function properly. Since stem cells work on repairing neural damage, they are a promising treatment for therapy.

For patients dealing with cancer, bone marrow transplants have been successful in helping them make new cells on their own after intense treatments that may put their bodies under strain. They can also aid in creating new tissues, which is immensely helpful for those dealing with heart issues or muscular degeneration.

How are stem cells administered?

There are a few different ways that people can get stem cells if needed. One of the popular methods is bone marrow transplants, which are taken while a person is put under anesthesia. The cells are then taken from the person donating cells and put in a stored location or given to whoever needs them.

In cancer treatments, stem cells may be taken from the patient prior to intense therapies like chemotherapy and placed back into the body afterward to prevent any damage to them. This allows your body to fight infection more effectively. This specific process is known as autologous transplant or AUTO transplant.

Stem cells can also be injected at a specific site, such as at a joint for targeted effects. They can also be administered as an IV infusion for whole-body effects.

Stem cells and IV therapy are considered regenerative medicine, which focuses on the repair and replacing of damaged cells or tissues. With an IV treatment, you will get the stem cells directly into the bloodstream. This allows the cells to immediately begin working without delay, as opposed to other treatments, which may be more uncomfortable and require more time to work.
