Many people hear the word cell therapy and don’t quite understand what it is that we do at ICBR. It’s not surprising given the similar name to stem cell therapy and other regenerative therapies available. Let’s take a look at the process of Classic Cell Therapy to clear the air.
The Cells of Classic Cell Therapy
What we’re using in Classic Cell Therapy are embryonic and fetal cells. They are taken, in this case, from black mountain sheep. People frequently ask, “Well, why not human? Wouldn’t that be better?” While one might think that to be the case, it’s not. The truth is that all mammalian cells are the same at this stage of gestation. People also confuse what we do with stem cell therapy, which is only natural because that’s a phrase that is so much in the spotlight.
Stem cells are at the very youngest embryonic stage of development. These cells have no identity. They don’t become what they will become until they are in an environment with other developed cells, at which point they become a heart, lung, or other fully developed cell. When you have a cell that is that immature, that doesn’t have its own identity, you get explosive growth capacity. When you want to use stem cells, you have to put them where they are needed. The future of stem cell research is bright and has a lot of potential to heal people, but it’s not what we do.
What we do involves cells that are slightly more mature than stem cells. These cells are called organ-specific cells, which is the next stage of development. This stage is the final stage of development before the cells become species-specific cells. Part of the reason that we do not use cells that originate from human fetuses is that you cannot quality control that process. You can’t raise people the way you raise animals.
Rejuvenation and Regeneration
There are many reasons to undergo Classic Cell Therapy, but the primary reasons are rejuvenation and regeneration. The systems that fail as we age are primarily our immune systems, our endocrine systems, and our connective tissues. These are the systems that we treat.
When we begin the process, we start at the beginning. First, we introduce basic embryonic cells into the patient via a serum. This is a cell that works anywhere in the body. This part of the process comes from my husband, who always used to say “first, you give the base, and then you get specific.” What this means is that we start with a sort of universal treatment and adjust the treatments based on each patient’s needs.
When we treat our patients, we begin with endocrine system embryonic cells because these cells are the foundation of how you feel. They affect your energy levels and your mood. We then treat a portion of the endocrine system called the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (also call the HPA axis). The hypothalamus deteriorates by about 70% by the time you’re 70. It’s important to support the hypothalamus because it is essentially the wizard behind the curtain. It feeds the pituitary gland, which controls the rest of the endocrine system.
If the immune system is a problem, we treat that, too. It all just depends on what you need as a patient. The connective tissues are also a big area to treat. These include the tissues in the joints, which make easy mobility possible, and things as simple as the tissue under the skin in the face, which determines how young you look.
