Regenerative medicine is about helping the body heal itself. That is, giving the body what it needs to do, or should do, naturally.
Regenerative medicine is bigger than just stem cells transplants, treatments, or therapies. It is about all things that help the body heal itself.
We used to view regenerative medicine as the future of medicine. That view is incorrect. Regenerative medicine is medicine in the present. And it is guiding the way to how we will receive, use, and practice medicine for the next 50 years.
New and better technologies are beginning to advance regenerative medicine treatments faster than before. However, while most in the field are thinking about “cures” for diseases or replacement organs, it’s the incremental changes that most often have the greatest impacts on humanity. There are some people who are being “cured” by regenerative treatments or therapies. Anecdotally, this is less than 5% of all people who receive a regenerative treatment or therapy (it’s probably closer to 2%, or less). With that, the evidence continues to show that multiple treatments are likely necessary – possibly for a a lifetime – to help the body heal itself, or do what it should do naturally.
But there is hope! With the right plan, relationships, and therapies, people are living a better quality of life and gaining at least a little bit more time with loved ones.
Contrary to popular belief, more and better technology is not necessarily the answer to health care issues. Yes, technology continues to offer more and better tools, but technology by itself is not going to provide better health care.
Regenerative medicine is about helping the body health itself across the entire lifespan, not just when we’re sick. Although, we can help our bodies when we’re sick as well.
Regenerative medicine is the future of medicine, now.
Who Can Benefit From Regenerative Health
According to the US Center for Disease Control, nearly 60% of Americans suffer from either a rare or chronic disease. More specifically, there are approximately 200 million Americans suffering from rare and chronic diseases. About 98% (196 million) of these people are looking for a way to manage the disease on their own because there are few or no traditional treatments.
That’s why people are turning to regenerative medicine.
But, as individuals seeking treatment, and as society as a whole, we need to work together to find solutions – as many as we can for now, but also for the future.
The traditional “treat and street” model where patients get a treatment and then hope and pray that something works is doing a disservice to patients, doctors, and those who will suffer from these diseases in the future.
Regenerative health management helps us overcome many of these issues. Through the active on-going process of helping the body heal itself, we can work to find treatments and therapies that work for you.
Regenerative treatments and therapies are showing the ability to repair, replace, rejuvenate, and even regenerate tissue that has been damaged by injury, disease, or because of the natural aging process.
Given that, regenerative treatments and therapies are restoring the natural functionality of both cells and tissues and are being applied to:
The general health and wellness of both men and women
Joints: shoulders, knees, hips, as well as smaller joints in the body
Neurodegenerative diseases and disorders
Spinal cord injuries
Traumatic brain injuries (this includes concussions)
Autoimmune diseases and disorders
Male and Female sexual dysfunction
Wounds, ulcers, and burns
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
