Used in conjunction with traditional treatments, or other therapies offered like hyperbaric oxygen therapy, it can potentially improve your chances of long-term health.
Recent research of Alzheimer’s Disease and related dementias brings upon new treatments for those battling it. Past treatments have shown that stem cells not only have the potential to regenerate the lost or damaged tissues in the brain, but also have the ability to temporarily modulate the immune system, disabling the abnormal attack. By addressing these two areas of Alzheimer’s Disease, potential improvements with the following symptoms have been observed:
- Enhanced behavior and mood
- Reduction or elimination of confusion
- Improvements in motor skills
- Improved cognitive function
- Reduction of memory loss
- Increased energy
Alzheimer’s Disease is a form of dementia which causes memory loss and can inhibit intellectual abilities severely enough to interfere with a person’s daily activities.
Billions of nerve cells connect to one another in our brains transferring tons of information like a giant communication network. In a patient with Alzheimer’s disease, the communication is interrupted. Parts of the brain involved with specific tasks such as thinking, learning, and memory become uncoordinated, tampering with cognitive abilities. Alzheimer’s Disease is known as a progressive disease, meaning the damage worsens and/or spreads over periods of time. The rate of progression, however, is unique to each patient and the symptoms vary greatly depending in part on age and other health conditions that may reside.
To perform at its greatest potential, our brains require coordination. With each group of cells in control of a certain bodily function, they act like tiny factories, carrying out each task in a routine manner. In a patient with Alzheimer’s Disease, this signal flow is interrupted by progressive damage. Scientists believe that Alzheimer’s Disease prevents parts of the dense-branching communication network from running smoothly. The damage ultimately spreads to other parts of the brain causing irreversible damage and leading to the various symptoms associated with Alzheimer’s Disease.
Each case of Alzheimer’s is unique to the patient and the symptoms experienced are of a broad array. Effects of the disease can range from slowed thinking and memory loss to difficulty swallowing, speaking and walking. In the early stages of an AD diagnosis the area generally affected responds to learning and memory. Early symptoms include difficulty remembering new information, memory loss, and slight mood and behavioral changes. In a patient with moderate AD, organizational skills, understanding speech, expressing oneself, and planning are impaired. Progressively the disease can affect thinking, sense of time and place, and minor interferences within work and social life can be noticed. In the late stages of AD, the brain is severely damaged and the symptoms are very difficult to treat. The cortex and hippocampus of the brain shrink dramatically and fluid-filled spaces within the brain, called ventricles, begin to enlarge. Inability to recognize family, perform daily tasks, communicate, walk, and swallow are some of the symptoms generally experienced in the late stages of an Alzheimer’s Disease diagnosis.
Treatments today for Alzheimer’s include medications for many of the symptoms such as prescription drugs for behavioral changes, sleep patterns, and pain management. Some medications work by assisting in the performance of chemicals in the brain responsible for the transfer information from one cell to another. Many herbal remedies and supplements are also available for use to help relieve symptoms experienced. These methods temporarily improve the symptoms of memory loss and problems with learning and reasoning. While relief can be found in the symptoms associated with AD, no cure exists for the chronic disease.
In explaining how stem cell therapy can be beneficial to a patient with Alzheimer’s Disease it is important to understand what exactly happens in the brain when battling this condition. In a patient with Alzheimer’s Disease, protein deposits, called plaques, build up in the spaces between nerve cells far more rapidly than normally associated with aging. Tangles, twisted fibers that build up inside dead and dying nerve cells, also produce at a faster rate. These two occurrences tend to follow a pattern, targeting areas most critical for memory then progressively spreading to other regions. The damaged nerve cells are then unable to properly transmit electrical signals within our brain, those signals that are responsible for memories and individual thoughts.
Stem cells reproduce at a rapid rate and have the potential to be many different cell types in the body. Stem cell therapy for Alzheimer’s Disease is a breakthrough procedure in regenerative medicine and Stemedix uses adipose, bone marrow aspirate or umbilical cord derived stem cells as methods of therapy for you in your journey to wellness. These regenerative therapies help the body’s natural healing process work faster and more effectively. These procedures are designed to aid in the restoration of dying tissues in the body. In the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease, the stem cells are collected, enriched, and administered in hopes of replacing the dying nerve cells in the brain. These advancements in the treatment of Alzheimer’s Disease work to potentially regenerate missing or damaged tissue that the body would not ordinarily regrow.
While aging is among the greatest risk factors for Alzheimer’s Disease, it does not have to be a normal part of the aging process. With our stem cell therapy for Alzheimer’s Disease, hope can be returned to those attempting to manage their condition. When traditional medications show less than optimal results, advanced technology offers a natural procedure to assist your body in rebuilding itself. Stem cell treatments offer a new way of approaching Alzheimer’s Disease that not only addresses the abnormal immune response, but also aids in the restoration of diseased and dying nerve tissues of the brain. There is no cure for Alzheimer’s Disease, but these methods have potential benefits in the management of symptoms.
Other MS Treatments vs Stem Cell
Current MS treatments can reduce the severity of symptoms by blocking autoimmune responses against the myelin sheath. They do not repair the neural cell damage that has already occurred.
These treatments can also cause serious side effects, and over time, can stop working for certain patients.
Stem cell therapy can slow down the progression of MS by neutralizing (or even reversing) the damage caused to the myelin sheath.
Past treatments have shown that stem cells not only have the potential to regenerate lost or damaged myelin sheath tissues, but also have the ability to modulate the immune system, temporarily disabling the abnormal
