Receiving an autoimmune disorder diagnosis may wreak havoc on your life. On one hand, it’s good to have an answer as to what is happening to your body. On the other hand, it’s even more frustrating because you may have a lack of answers or treatment options. At Ageless Integrated Medicine, we see frustrated patients all the time. We help turn that frustration around through our use of stem cell therapies to help those with autoimmune disorders. Many studies have shown positive trends among people who use stem cell therapy to deal with their autoimmune disorder. Below, you’ll find different types of autoimmune disorders that respond well to stem cell therapy.
Types of Stem Cell Therapies
Stem cell therapy is all about using what your body naturally produces to help restore it. For patients with autoimmune disorders, naturally restoring their body is one way they’ll help feel better overall. Depending on the autoimmune disorder, a different type of stem cell therapy might be implemented.
The types of stem cell therapies that we perform at our office are derived from platelet rich plasma, umbilical cord mesenchymal stem cells, and amniotic stem cells. While each of the different therapies are derived from different places, the ultimate goal is to help patients naturally and holistically feel better and restore different parts of their body.
For patients with multiple sclerosis, stem cell therapy has been a welcome relief from their symptoms. The use of stem cells for these patients slows down the rate at which the nerve fibers around the brain and spinal cord are broken down, making the patient’s quality of life increase.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune condition that mainly affects the joints. In rheumatoid arthritis, the body’s immune system attacks its own tissue, including joints. While stem cell therapy to help patients with rheumatoid arthritis is new, the results do seem promising. With stem cell therapy, the inflammation in your joints should decrease over time, making movement easier.
If you’re tired of dry, flaky skin caused by psoriasis, stem cell therapy may help reduce your symptoms. Depending on the type of treatment, the visibility of flaky skin will decrease. One study has shown a patient who has not had an outbreak in two years. Of course, that comes with continued treatment, not a one and done treatment plan.
According to the Lupus Foundation of America, stem cell therapy is one of the best treatment plans available at the moment for people with lupus. Also, some of the completed studies show stem cell therapy lessens the likelihood of long-term effects.
