Stem Cells are the cells that are from us. They are in our own eyes, skin, brain, lungs, and everything that is you. Today’s Stem Cell Therapy offers hope to many patients who suffer from many chronic conditions. These simple procedures can potentially help avoid the complicated and dangerous nature of surgical procedures.
Here at Young Foundational Health Center Dr. Young has treated many patients and through their testimonials and his own health he has witnessed outstanding success with human umbilical cord blood stem cells.
Not All Stem Cells are the Same!
What Are Stem Cells?
They are the cells that form us. We can now harvest stem cells from fat, bone, amniotic fluid, umbilical cords, and placental fluid; however, not all sources have an equal amount of stem cells in them. Below is a comparison of the approximate number of stem cells per cells in different body sources:
- Adipose Tissue 4.734 cells/mL to 1.55 million/mL
- Bone Marrow 1 cell/mL to 317,400/mL
- Placental/Amniotic 1,000 cells/mL to 30,000 cells/mL
- Umbilical Cord 10,000 cells/ml to 4.7 million/mL
When getting stem cells, no matter the source, ask for the number of stem cells you will be receiving.
If the doctor will not give you a number, then maybe those cells are not for you.
Stem Cells and Your Age
Our stem cells rapidly decline with age, leaving us more prone to injury, aging and disease. In theory, using your own stem cells is a good idea. However, stem cells deteriorate with age and if you are sick with a chronic condition, your stem cells are sick as well.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells (MSC) can be given to anyone because they are allergy neutral. The chart to the right illustrates the drastic difference in the number of Mesenchymal Stem Cells as our age declines.
Safety is an important fact when considering stem cell therapy. Tissue banks screen their stem cells for 7 different diseases. Dr. Young's source also screens for an additional 10 conditions. We also reject about 15% of the cells that the tissue banks certify as 'safe' because your safety is important to us, so we go the extra mile to do more testing. Dr. Young wants you to be sure that the cells you give yourself, your family, and patients are the very best. Below is a list of the disease that our stem cells are screened for:
|Competitor's Source||Dr. Young's Source|
|HIV I and II||√||√|
|HTLV I and II||√||√|
|West Nile Virus||√|
"I injured my right knee playing tennis. It was swollen, it would catch, and it would cause me to limp in pain. The MRI showed three meniscal tears, one bucket handle tear, osteoarthritis, and bone on bone."
"After much research, and motivated to avoid surgery, I decided to try umbilical cord stem cell therapy. After 10 days, I had no pain and my knee wasn’t catching. After 30 days, all the swelling was gone. 90 days after treatment, I was back to playing tennis. The follow-up MRI showed that all three meniscal tears were gone. The bucket handle tear was 80% healed, and there was no sign of osteoarthritis or bone on bone. I was thrilled with the results and I was excited to think what this could mean for my patients."
"As an M.D., my goal is to get my patients better with few, if any, pharmaceuticals and with little to no surgery. Umbilical cord stem cells could go a long way in achieving this goal. Over the past three years, I have administered thousands of umbilical cord stem cell treatments, and I am constantly encouraged by the results."
