As we get older, we experience more aches in our joints and muscles. Many degenerative diseases occur as we age because our cells are not as efficient in waste removal. Toxins build up in our tissues and cause illness. That is where exosome therapy comes in. It is an innovative treatment meant to rejuvenate aging cells, leaving you feeling and functioning better. If you are wondering how and why exosome therapy supports your body’s natural anti-aging process, we give you the details below.
What is Exosome Therapy?
Our cells produce exosomes, which are essentially transportation vehicles between cells. We can find them in bodily fluids and tissues. Not only do they take waste out, but they also carry data that tell our cells what to do. These functions include healing and repair. In fact, our stem cells send exosomes mainly to cure and restore other cells. Stem types are important because they replace damaged cells in our body. That is why it is beneficial to support our body’s natural exosome function.
The therapy itself involves injecting an IV full of these vehicles into regions that need the most help. These regions can include any joints and muscles experiencing pain or degenerative disease. How many we inject depends on each individual patient.
How Does Exosome Therapy Slow Down Aging?
Exosomes support all cells, including your stem cells. These cells might slow down or work less efficiently for a variety of reasons, such as aging. Adding new exosomes helps revitalize them and function better than before. They can also help slow down inflammation in the body — a factor that accelerates aging. In turn, your body can recover from diseases more quickly, whether you are suffering from a more severe degenerative illness or a simple cold. Since your body is functioning more efficiently, you might experience healthier skin, hair, and nails by extension.
What Are The Side Effects?
Unlike stem cell therapy, exosome therapy does not require invasive surgery. This means little to no downtime. Most patients do not experience any side effects, but a small percentage do experience mild to severe symptoms after the fact. This can include headaches, nausea, vomiting, and a mild fever. However, these symptoms are short-term. If they happen at all, they tend to last about 24 hours and do not last any more than three days. We have so far only noted positive long-term effects — no lasting consequences.
To get the most out of this treatment, here are some guidelines to consider:
- Avoid anti-inflammatory medication before your treatment, such as aspirin
- Stick to light activity for the first 24-48 hours
- Continue your cardio workouts after 3-4 weeks
- Continue your weight lifting or resistance training after 4 weeks
