In the last several years, there has been a significant advancement in stem cell therapy for heart disease. Can stem cell therapy cure heart disease? No, but used with your current heart disease regimen, it can improve your heart health and quality of life.
What is Heart Disease?
Worldwide sixty-four million people are affected by heart failure. Heart disease, also known as heart failure, is the heart’s inability to pump enough blood to meet your body’s need for nutrients and oxygen. Over time the heart becomes bigger (enlarged) and weaker. As inflammation builds in the heart, the heart loses its ability to pump sufficiently, and fluid builds up in your lungs, causing shortness of breath.
Untreated or progressing heart failure can be life-threatening. In the late stages of heart disease, patients may need surgical placement of an artificial heart pump or a heart transplant.
What Causes and Symptoms of Heart Disease?
The most common causes of heart disease are high blood pressure, diabetes, thyroid issues, coronary artery disease (CAD), a heart attack, Myocarditis (an inflammation of the heart muscle), Congenital heart defects, defective heart valves, and irregular heartbeats (arrhythmias).
The most common symptoms are shortness of breath from extra fluid built up in the lungs.
Patients complain they feel tired all the time and lethargic. This is caused by the lack of blood flow to the muscles. Swollen legs and feet are also common because the heart can’t pump all the fluid out of the body in its weakened state. Some patients also lose their appetite due to excess fluid in the stomach and liver, making them feel bloated and nauseous.
Doctors treat heart failure symptoms in hopes of improving the patient’s quality of life and preventing further complications. Medications like diuretics (to remove the fluid in the body), Beta-Blockers (decreasing the force of the blood flow and slowing the heartbeat down to lower blood pressure), and ACE Inhibitors (lower blood pressure by relaxing the veins and arteries) are used to treat the symptoms of heart disease.
In severe heart failure, a pacemaker/defibrillator may be needed. These require a surgical procedure and a healing time of up to six weeks.
While current treatments manage the symptoms of heart disease, they don’t repair tissue damage or restore the heart’s function.
There is no cure for heart disease. The question remains, can stem cells cure heart disease?
How Stem Cells Can Improve Heart Disease
Stem cells can’t cure heart disease, but they can rejuvenate the heart muscle and improve the ejection fraction (the amount of blood the heart pumps with each beat) on the heart’s left side. Stem cells have an anti-inflammatory effect on heart tissue. Inflammation caused by heart failure is decreased with stem cell therapy. Stem cells also rejuvenate blood vessels and the heart by renewing the heart muscle, thus repairing damaged tissue and improving the heart’s function along with a patient’s quality of life.
Why ProgenCell is the Right Choice for You
ProgenCell uses autologous (from your body) adult stem cells harvested from your bone marrow via the pelvis. We use a sterile procedure to ensure the chance of infection is extremely low. Our doctors, nurses, and support staff are highly trained to ensure you receive conscientious and high-quality stem cell therapy.
The growth factor in bone marrow is a catalyst for the regeneration of the heart tissue and vessels.
We administer mesenchymal stem cells by IV. This allows the stem cells to arrive where needed through your bloodstream, thus targeting damaged heart tissue. Stem cells differentiate into multiple types of cells, making them a versatile form of therapy. Once they reach their destination, they begin the regeneration, renewal, and restoration of damaged heart tissue.
Can stem cells cure your heart disease? No. The advantage of stem cell therapy is the regeneration of the heart muscle and blood vessels, relieving symptoms and complementing your current cardiac regimen.
As in the US, standards for medical procedures are monitored by a regulatory health organization known as COFEPRIS in Mexico (the equivalent of the US’s FDA.) Our award-winning clinic has received honors from the Internal Board of Medicine and Surgery and countless testimonials from patients enjoying an improved quality of life and health after stem cell therapy.
