5 Amazing Benefits of Cord Stem Cell Therapy You Didn't Know

You’re suffering from joint pain or an autoimmune disease, and nothing is working to relieve your pain and let you live your life the way you want. You’ve seen doctor after doctor and been given promise after promise, but nothing has helped yet.

Dr. Cedric Emery at Pacific Wellness of Ventura would like to change your outlook with umbilical cord stem cell therapy. He and his team have had great success using this treatment with their patients.

Stem cells are the basic building blocks of the body’s various components. They have the potential to turn into many different kinds of cells given the right stimulation (they are the only cells that can do this), and one place these stem cells are found is in the umbilical cord that connects a mother and her baby in the womb. If this cord blood is saved when babies are born, it can later be used to treat diseases; the stem cells can be extracted from the cord blood and then injected into the body where they are needed. The stem cells we use at Pacific Wellness come only from FDA-registered tissue banks.

Here are five benefits of cord stem cell therapy you may not know about:

  1. Tissue repair

Cord stem cells can replace damaged cells in many parts of your body. Whether you are in pain from tissue damage or your cells are not functioning correctly, the stem cells can provide great relief when introduced into the body through systemic IV infusion. They also play a positive role in decreasing and fighting inflammation. Because these cells are from cord blood and have been tested for a wide range of diseases, there is usually no adverse response from your body.

  1. Joint repair

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that causes great pain and swelling in the patient’s joints. Stem cells (specifically, mesenchymal stem cells from umbilical cord blood) have been shown to bring about healing activity in these areas, bringing relief.

  1. Cartilage repair

Wharton’s jelly is a gelatinous substance that provides insulation in the umbilical cord. This jelly contains stem cells that can be used to treat a range of cartilage issues in the human body, especially in the knees. When the cells are injected into the problem area, they can stimulate new cartilage growth, helping to reverse any damage or loss.

  1. Neurological treatment

If you or a loved one has suffered a stroke or has a neurological disease, you know how devastating these conditions can be. Exosomes are messenger cells found in cord stem cells that have been shown to alleviate the results of stroke and traumatic brain injury. Because exosomes can cross the blood-brain barrier, they are ideal for this kind of treatment.

  1. Autoimmune disease treatment

Scientists do not know why the body’s immune system sometimes turns on itself, attacking healthy cells instead of foreign invaders, but it can lead to diseases like diabetes and lupus. Taking out the malfunctioning immune cells and replacing them with stem cells is an area of treatment that is showing promise and could provide great benefit for patients.
