We’re here to debunk 5 common myths surrounding regenerative medicine, to put to rest any misleading information.
MOUNT PLEASANT, SC, March 19, 2020 /24-7PressRelease/ — In the age of the internet, misinformation can spread like wildfire. Researching different treatment options can often lead to confusing, and sometimes conflicting, answers. We’re here to debunk 5 common myths surrounding regenerative medicine, to put to rest any misleading information.
Q: Do stem cells contain aborted fetal tissue?
False. There are a variety of stem cells available, ranging from ones found in adult bodies to ones found in umbilical cords. Elite Healthcare Physical Medicine uses the regenerative cells found in the Wharton’s jelly of an umbilical cord. The umbilical cords we use are collected from healthy and consenting mothers, making this process harmless and ethical. It also puts to use something that would otherwise go unused and discarded!
Q: The adult body contains stem cells.
True. Stem cells can be found even in adults. These stem cells can be harvested from adipose tissue or bone marrow. In both of these processes, the stem cells are extracted and then reintroduced to the problem site for targeted treatment. However, there comes a concern with these adult stem cells: these cells have been aging with the body, and therefore may not be as robust. They also could have been exposed to potentially harmful external stimuli, which may alter their efficacy. Our clinic uses the cells from umbilical cords because these cells are young and untouched.
Q: You can reject donated regenerative cells.
False. With the regenerative cells our doctors use, there is little-to-no-risk of rejections. The cells from the umbilical cords are immune privileged, which means they have not yet developed an immune system. This significantly lowers any chance of negative reactions to the donated cells. They are also unexposed to various potentially harmful stimuli, leaving them unadulterated by negative influences.
Q: Regenerative cells help repair damaged tissue.
True. Regenerative medicine is a form of all-natural pain relief because it taps into the body’s own healing ability. These regenerative cells can heal damaged tissue, meaning it’s a two-for-one combo of pain relief and tissue repair. Most medications only mask the symptoms and pain from damaged tissue, but regenerative therapies can treat both the symptoms and the source.
Q: Regenerative medicine is unsafe.
False. Regenerative medicine is a safe form of treatment. Regenerative medicine takes advantage of the body’s own ability to heal. Elite healthcare physical medicine uses the cells found in umbilical cords, which are young and potent. This means that they have a low chance of rejection. Plus, all umbilical cords are collected from mothers who are prescreened for health conditions, ensuring we only get umbilical cords from healthy mothers.
