WHAT IS REGENERATIVE MEDICINE?
Regenerative Medicine is a heterogeneous mixture of cells including cytokines, growth factors, scaffolding, Mesenchymal Stem cells, hyaluronic acid and various proteins to help with orthopedic conditions such as osteoarthritis. These are essential biomolecules our aging bodies need for regeneration.
With the help of the state-of-the-art treatments we offer at Body Systems Wellness, the body’s natural restorative processes can be stimulated to resolve pain, inflammation, and so much more. The goal of regenerative medicine is to enhance the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
A healthy body should have the power to heal from an injury without any outside intervention. However, in many cases, due to age, disease or an unhealthy lifestyle, help is needed and regenerative medicine is an extremely viable option.
HOW DOES REGENERATIVE MEDICINE WORK?
Regenerative Medicine with the help of stem cells can address a wide variety of body-health issues that come about as a result of injuries, diseases, and the aging process offering exciting new opportunities for healing and recovery without surgery and little to no downtime.
When people think of Regenerative Medicine, it is often associated with stem cells and their cell count in a product to determine treatment effectiveness. This is a common misconception where in reality Regenerative Medicine actually involves quite a bit more than just the stem cells and their cell counts to be effective in the healing process.
What Regenerative Medicine does at Body Systems Wellness, is serve as the vehicle delivering signal molecules to the patient's own stem cells and enable them to heal the body. These signal molecules (aka chemical messengers) are comprised of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), growth factors, cellular scaffolding, cytokines, proteins, and hyaluronic acids that act as regenerative agents in the body.
WHAT ARE MESENCHYMAL STEM CELLS?
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSCs) are stem cells that come from healthy multicelluar tissue that enables the body to address inflammation and pain on an internal level. They can differentiate into a variety of types of cells, including those that make up bone tissue, fatty tissue, and cartilage.
Our treatments can also involve amniotic extracellular matrix (ECM), which contains a high concentration of healing components.

WHERE DO YOU GET YOUR REGENERATIVE STEM CELL PRODUCTS?
For our Regenerative Medical treatments, all of the products that are used are sourced and produced from an FDA registered and regulated laboratory of the highest quality. The mesenchymal stem cells are donated to our FDA regulated laboratory by approved healthy donors who are subject to a strict screening process. Their medical history is evaluated, a physical exam is performed, tests are done to check for any communicable diseases, and behavioral risks to ensure there is no rejection of these cells in the body.
Body Systems Wellness only uses highly vetted practitioners to offer our treatments and services. The procedure for each clinical application of our treatments is developed and overseen by our Medical Directors. Our Medical Directors ensure that a standardized protocol is used when practitioners deliver our family of services.
The tissue used in the treatments is procured and processed to the highest standards mandated by the FDA as well as the American Association of Tissue Banks. Body Systems Wellness ensures that the Regenerative Medicine treatments offered use products that are sourced to best serve the needs of our patients. All of our regenerative products come with a Certificate of Analysis to ensure the highest quality of safety.
WHY CHOOSE REGENERATIVE MEDICINE?
- Components of the treatment are intended to reduce inflammation and continue the healing process, while improving, or eliminating your pain.
- Less invasive and rehabilitation time when compared to others forms of regenerative medicine such as bone marrow aspirate and adipose tissue extraction.
- For in-office procedures, there is minimal, if any, down time after treatment.
- Regenerative Stem Cell Treatment is designed to restore structural damage compared to cortisone injections that actually degrade and further enhance the degenerative process.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN YOUR TREATMENT VS OTHERS?
What many “stem cell” clinics fail to mention is that your cells are as old as you are. As we age, the number of cells and the quality of our cells drastically diminish. With a decrease in cell quality, a person of advanced age will not heal and regenerate like a young child would. Therefore treatments relying on the use of your own adipose tissue extraction and bone marrow tend to be lower in quality in connection with the condition of your health and age.
Additionally, common stem cell harvesting methods such as adipose tissue extraction and bone marrow aspirate, which are typically used at most clinics offering stem cell treatments, can be both invasive and quite painful. They can also require a fair amount of downtime and recovery.
At Body Systems Wellness our Regenerative Medicine technique does not require any of these methods. All of our Regenerative Stem Cell Products come from an FDA regulated laboratory and a Certificate of Analysis to ensure saftey. Our treatments use multicellular stem cell products donated from healthy donors, which means the components in these products are at day one strength. This makes treatment less invasive, much more comfortable, and typically a one-time procedure with little to no downtime required. Additionally, Body Systems Wellness is one of few clinics certified with the International Society For Stem Cell Application (ISSCA) and is an advocate for promoting excellence in the field of regenerative medicine.
