What is umbilical cord stem cell therapy?

Umbilical stem cells are the best source of pluripotent stem cells for therapeutic applications. They also contain Wharton’s Jelly, a rich source of mesenchymal stem cells, endothelial cells, and epithelial cells that give growth to many of the support tissues in the body.

How the practice treats you with the stem cells depends on your needs. You may receive cells injected directly into aching joints to promote healing or receive them via IV infusion for a systemic approach to wellness.

How does stem cell therapy work?

Stem cells can differentiate into cells that maintain and repair tissue. They’re nonspecialized, so they become whatever type of cell is necessary for healing.

Exosomes harvested from umbilical cord plasma transfer DNA, RNA, and proteins, such as cytokines, influencing the function of cells in areas that needs rejuvenation. Umbilical stem cells also play a role in minimizing inflammation in all parts of the body, including fluids and the brain.

As you get older, your natural production of stem cells slows, leading to slower healing times. Receiving umbilical cord stem cell therapy gives you a needed boost for your immune system and better healing where your body needs it.

Where do umbilical cord stem cells come from?

Stem cells may be obtained from several sources, including bone marrow, fat tissue, and peripheral blood. At Pacific Wellness of Ventura, umbilical cord-derived stem cells are used because they are considered among the best. All tissue obtained from umbilical cords is screened under US Food and Drug Administration and American Association of Tissue Bands standards to ensure you receive only the highest quality and ethically obtained cells.

What issues can umbilical cord stem cell therapy address?

When stem cells are injected directly into arthritic or injured joints, they can promote healing of cartilage and the regeneration of ligaments and soft tissue. The systemic IV infusion of stem cells has multiple potential benefits, including:

  • Anti-aging
  • Boosting your own hematopoietic system (stem cell production)
  • Healing of systemic osteoarthritis
  • Recovery from injuries, stroke, or heart attack
  • Regeneration of lung, heart, and body muscles
  • Assistance in the repair damaged nerves

Umbilical stem cell therapy may also help patients with autoimmune conditions and neurological issues (neuropathy) because the exosomes -- extracellular vesicles that are responsible for cell-to-cell communication -- can travel through the blood-brain barrier.
