Stem Cell Therapy and Chronic Conditions
Unlike other stem cell treatments, umbilical stem cells have a unique, regenerative ability that has given patients with chronic diseases hope they never had before. That hope comes from the cells’ unique ability to differentiate into healthier cells needed by damaged parts of the body. Whereas other stem cells can treat a variety of specific conditions, umbilical stem cells can recreate healthy tissue virtually anywhere.
Umbilical stem cells are newer and more nutrient rich than older cells simply because they are extracted from newborn umbilical cords. With healthy tissue and the science to support it, patients suffering from chronic conditions can now look forward to what they hope will be a new lease on a healthier life. And while umbilical stem cells do not, at this time, guarantee recovery or the restoration of full functionality, they do contribute immensely to patient support and quality of life. Hope and aspirations of a life better lived is intensely important, as well.
Umbilical stem cell treatment has shown remarkable progress in the care of individuals with Parkinson’s Disease. Known as a neurodegenerative, chronic condition that generally has a poor prognosis, Parkinson’s is not known to have any distinct causes or preexisting determinat conditions. There is some indication, though no definitive research, that suggests ingesting dangerous levels of alcohol may increase the likelihood of developing this disease. While this claim is just that, the public would do well to consider their lifestyle habits and just how much they imbibe overall.
No matter what causes the disease however, treatment options are often sought by those who will or already are facing the loss of neurological function and overall independence. Current treatment options for Parkinson’s include brain stimulation as well as a variety of medications aimed at symptom management.
But what if there was a better way to treat this condition? And what if there was a way to, if not stop the disease’s progression, at least stave off its growth? Mercifully, these ideas are no longer mere dreams, but options that are being actively pursued to benefit the Parkinson’s community. Enter: Umbilical Stem Cell treatment and its effects on dopamine.
Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that regulates a host of functions, including mood, movement and executive functioning. In patients with Parkinson’s, dopamine levels drop to subtherapeutic levels that eventually result in poor muscle control throughout the body. Understanding dopamine as an integral part of this diagnosis allows researchers to explore ways to secure the highest levels possible of this neurotransmitter.
Current research has discovered that umbilical stem cells can be used to successfully restore dopamine levels by essentially becoming this chemical and working positively with the cells that secrete it. Though this research has not proven itself to be curative, the benefits individuals garner from such care is beyond what most of us ever thought possible.
