El uso de complejos multivitaminicos, minerales, con altas dosis de vitamina C mejora el sistema inmune

Las vitaminas son imprescindibles para que el sistema inmune sea eficiente, es de especial importancia combinar diferentes vitaminas para ganar defensa inmunitaria.

VITAMINA C

La vitamina C es un nutriente esencial que se encuentra en los alimentos y en los suplementos alimentarios, es un antioxidante, además es un cofactor de varias enzimas, El uso terapéutico de la vitamina C, en paciente con afecciones respiratorias, es conocido desde hace al menos 80 años, permite reducir la morbilidad en paciente con afecciones virales con daño predominante a nivel pulmonar

La aplicación temprana de vitamina C es segura y afectiva en la prevención de este tipo de padecimientos , la administración intravenosa de Vitamina C alcanza concentraciones mayores a las obtenidas con la administración  por vía oral, en general las altas dosis de vitamina C causaron muy pocos efectos secundarios, es crítico el uso temprano y suficiente  de vitamina C, ya que no se considera un antioxidante típico, está involucrado no solo con la destrucción viral, sino también, de manera importante previene la replicación de los mismos..

Efectos de la vitamina C en pacientes con afección pulmonar:

Función inmunológica: incrementa la quimiotaxis, fagocitosis y los neutrófilos,  favorece la migración de macrófagos, estimula la proliferación de células T y NK, modulando su función y puede incrementar la formación de anticuerpos

Función celular endotelial: Mejora la barrera endotelial, disminuye la expresión  de moléculas de adhesión  intracelular, mejora la microcirculación.

Favorece la síntesis de colágena, favorece la reparación tisular en heridas,

Antioxidante, protege de los radicales libres dañinos, mejora el aspecto hemodinámico y favorece la resolución del shock

COMPLEJO B

Las vitaminas del complejo B participan conjuntamente entre otros, en la formación de proteínas relevantes para el sistema inmunitario, se han relacionado especialmente con la mejoría de la respuesta inmune  en pacientes con enfermedades infecciosas.

MINERALES

Favorecen al organismo en la función inmunitaria, en la síntesis de pretinas, asi como cicatrización de heridas y reparación de diversos tejidos, se han demostrado claros beneficios para la salud del sistema inmunitario, mejorando la protección de los constituyen células frente el estrés oxidativo,

La Suplementación adecuada de complejos minerales es primordial para el mantenimiento del sistema inmune, el deterioro relacionado con la edad de la función inmunitaria, se ha asociado a la vulnerabilidad de las personas mayores, por eso las personas con deficiencia de minerales pueden experimentar mayor susceptibilidad a diversas enfermedades infecciosas.

OZONO

La terapia intravenosa de ozono ha sido altamente estudiada, efectiva como germicida, permite la mejoría de diferentes parámetros fisiológicos, es analgésico, tiene la capacidad de estimular la circulación sanguínea  y de forma importante al sistema inmune, lo que permite al organismo una mejor defensa contra infecciones, ha mostrado una respuesta muy favorable contra enfermedades bacterianas y virales, tiene una alta afinidad con la cubierta de virus, produce un desdoblamiento de la membrana que impide su multiplicación, el ozono tiene un alto potencial de oxidación, incluso 1.5 mayor al cloro cuando se utiliza como antimicrobiano contra, virus, bacterias y hongos.

Ante la necesidad urgente de terapias seguras y efectivas a las cuales los virus no desarrollen resistencia, las terapia intravenosa de ozono ha  mostrado altos niveles de seguridad, no produce efectos que comprometan la vida del paciente, ocasionalmente puede producir irritación venosa leve y temporal durante la aplicación intravenosa, es posible utilizarlo antes, durante y posterior a la enfermedad. se tendría a bien reevaluar, especialmente, la terapia con ozono en periodos de crisis como la que estamos cursando-

Meet Godfrey Ingram, former professional soccer Player who underwent stem cell treatment to treat his knees.

During his 15 years professional soccer career in England, Wales and the United States Godfrey Ingram made over 440 career league appearances, and scored over 270 league goals. 

Being a professional athlete, especially a soccer player, really took a toll on Godfrey´s knees. He suffered from pain and lack of mobility that really affected not only his athletic performance and efforts, it also affected his quality of life. His struggles came to a point where he knowed that something had to be done.

After Consulting with different orthopedic specialists from all over the world Godrey found out about Stem Cell Therapy and looked into it as an alternative to treat his knees.

According to his own testimony he sought stem cell treatment in clinics from Europe and the United States and none offered him the kind of information and services he was looking for. When he contacted Progencell, he quickly understood that ProgenCell – Stem Cell Therapies premium medical tourism program offered him the kind of service he was looking for and that the doctors from ProgenCell offered the knowledge and expertise where he can place his trust upon.

Godfrey´s short term goal was to be able to comfortably play a soccer tournament in Hawaii. After his treat he not only was able to play in the tournament he ended up leading goal scorer and most valuable player.

Whether you are a professional athlete, or  simply enjoy staying active and fit, stem cell therapy can help you.

Misconceptions arise about any emerging medical treatment, but they seem particularly pronounced when it comes to Stem Cell Therapy. Perhaps that’s because the ethical debate that has surrounded stem cell therapy has forced several prejudices in to it.There are many myths about this subject and much erroneous speculation. So we asked Dr. Luis Romero and other members of ProgenCell Scientific Committee to identify the common myths about Stem Cell Therapy today to help people wishing to know more about it separate fact from fiction.

I. Stem Cell Therapy is not Legal. Research with Stem Cells and the therapeutic use of Stem Cells has been happening for a long time now. For over 30 years, HSCT (Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation) has been used to treat people with conditions such as leukaemia, lymphoma and several inherited blood disorders. Depending on the country were Stem Cell Therapy is used different laws apply, in the specific case of ProgenCell – Stem Cell Therapies operates under a fully regulated protocol overseen by COFEPRIS (our local version of the FDA). In conclusion, stem cell therapy is legal, nevertheless one should always seek and verify this claims.

II. Stem cells come only from embryos. Embryonic stem cell research is only a portion of the whole stem cell therapy canvas. There are several natural sources and types of Stem Cells. Most stem cells intended for regenerative therapy are generally isolated either from the patient’s bone marrow or from adipose tissue. Stem cells do not come only from embryos.

III. Stem Cell Therapy is Unproven. There is a wide range of diseases for which there are proven treatments based on stem cells. There are a number of studies that have been published in the regenerative medicine and orthopedic literature demonstrating positive results from stem cell therapies.

IV. Stem Cell Therapy can cure anything. Stem Cells are not a cure for everything. However, several studies have shown an  improvement in the for patients suffering from degenerative conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, Parkinson’s Alzheimer’s, autism, lupus, macular degeneration, musculoskeletal issues, pulmonary diseases, renal and hepatic failure, multiple sclerosis, stroke, spinal cord, erectile dysfunction, among other conditions.

V. All Stem Cells are the same. There are many types of stem cells, and can be classified depending on their source, their potential or their application. The differences among them are striking, not only at the biological level, but also in applications of medical procedures. The regulatory framework for each king of stem cells is also something to be considered. 

VI. Stem Cells from the patients own body dont’t work. Adult Stem Cells are currently the most widely used in medicine. It is an unfortunate myth. Bone marrow is an effective and useful source for stem cells  – it contains unique growth factors and significant hematopoietic cells that help drive tissue regeneration.

VII. Embryonic Stem Cell Therapy is more Effective. When talking about potency in the field of stem cell therapy it can be a tricky word and has lead into some misconceptions. Potency does not mean that a certain type of stem cell is more effective than other. Potency refers to capability of the stem cells to become other type of cell, which is not always helpful and can even be dangerous. This is one of the major challenges that must be addressed before embryonic stem cells can be widely and better applied in regenerative medicine.

If you are interested in Stem Cell Therapy or wish to find out if it’s the right choice for you, contact us a FREE Evaluation, our medical team can help you determine if Stem Cell Therapy is right for you.

October is the most exciting month for baseball fans all over the world. The Major League World Series happens every year in October, this year the Houston Astros and the Washington Nationals will play each other to determine the Baseball Championship.

For baseball pitchers the ulnar collateral ligament (UCL) can become stretched, frayed or torn through the repetitive stress of the throwing motion. Injuries in the UCL are very common among professional pitchers. The most common used treatment for this kind of injuries is the Ulnar collateral ligament reconstruction, also known as Tommy John surgery (TJS). Is a surgical graft procedure where the ulnar collateral ligament in the medial elbow is replaced with either a tendon from elsewhere in the patient’s body, or with one from a dead donor. This surgical procedure is commonly known as Tommy John Surgery, it is named after the first baseball player to undergo the surgery, retired major league pitcher Tommy John. This surgery for baseball players, full rehabilitation takes about one year for pitchers and about six months for position players. Players typically begin throwing about 16 weeks after surgery. Along the lengthy recovery time There is a risk of damage to the ulnar nerve, and 20% of the players who undergone this surgery are not able to pitch again in the Major Leagues.

Tommy John surgery is a procedure that no professional baseball player wants to have. Fortunately in recent years medical and scientific advancements have proven that stem cell therapy can help. As an alternative to the Tommy John surgery, Stem Cell Treatment Procedures may help alleviate pain and improve function with a simple intrarticular injection procedure. Most patients who receive this treatment experience almost no downtime after our procedures whatsoever.

There is an on growing list of professional who have decided to receive stem cell treatment as an alternative or to prevent injuries or avoid Tommy John Surgery. As shown in the chart above, since 2015 Baseball Tommy John Surgery epidemic dropped, this is due to advancements in stem cell therapies and regenerative medicine. Some of the professional pitchers who have had stem cell therapies are Garret Richards 1, Andrew Heaney 2, Bartolo Colón 3.

If you are considering Tommy John Surgery or other orthopedic surgery for your sports or elbow injury, you might want to learn about how the adult stem cells procedures can help avoid these risky Orthopedic surgeries. Call us today and find out if Stem Cell Therapy is an option for you.

Biohacking is a term that has recently become popular, whose meaning has several slopes. To broadly define it refers to the use and study of biology in order to enhance body performance. It encompasses do-it-your-self-biology, grinders, Nutrigenomics, and quantified self, concepts that we need to explore in order to have a grasp of understanding of what biohacking really is.

What is Biohacking

Biohacking is a term that has recently become popular, whose meaning has several slopes. To broadly define it refers to the use and study of biology in order to enhance body performance. It encompasses do-it-your-self-biology, grinders, Nutrigenomics, and quantified self, concepts that we need to explore in order to have a grasp of understanding of what biohacking really is. As biohacking starts to appear more often in headlines, it’s worth understanding it and exploring it.  In a nutshell, I think is correct to regard biohacking as the pragmatic use of science in health. So, if you’ve pursued ways to improve your health, that’s biohacking.

DIY Biology

DIY Bio is commonly lead by individuals with training and involvement in scientific fields. These biohackers offer tips and strategies to help non-specialists conduct experiments on themselves outside of a controlled trial condition. The most common purposes or motivations of DIY biohackers are lower costs, simply entertainment, medicine, life extension, and education. From the ethical or social point of view, biohacking aim o revise the notion that one must be an academic with an advanced degree to make any significant contribution to the biology community.

Grinders

In general, grinders progress toward becoming some sort of “cyborgs” by enhancing their bodies with a blend of gadgets, chemical injections, implants, and whatever else they can put into their body to improve it or make it work the way they want it to.

Nutrigenomics

Nutrigenomics refers to using nutrition to hack/take control of the human biology.

This type of biohacking is founded on the idea that your body can be optimized by learning how different nutrients affect your health.

Nutrigenomics also looks at how different nutrients affect how you feel, think, and behave.

Quantified Self

Other terms for using self-tracking data to improve daily functioning are self-tracking, auto-analytics, body hacking, self-quantifying, self-surveillance, and personal informatics. The quantified self refers both to the cultural phenomenon of self-tracking with technology. Quantified Self incorporate technology and data acquisition into daily life, often with the goal of improving physical, mental, and/or emotional performance. The adoption of wearable fitness and sleep trackers such as the Fitbit or the Apple Watch, combined with the increased presence of Internet of Things in healthcare and in exercise equipment, have made self-tracking accessible to a large segment of the population.

Is Biohackig Safe?

Some forms of biohacking are safe and Effective. For example, taking certain supplements or making changes to your diet can be safe. Even some body modifications, like RFID implants, may be safe when overseen by a medical professional.

Some biohacking methodologies border on the unsafe or even illegal. DIY bio and grinder sometimes centers around experiments that aren’t safe or ethical. Experimenting on humans, even if it’s just on yourself, is still considered unsafe because of the unintended consequences or harm that can result.

Can Stem Cell Therapy be considered as some sort of Biohacking?

Yes, stem cell therapy can be considered biohacking. Although it’s extremely important to understand that any kind of substance that goes into your body need to be administered in a technologically safe environment and under a clearly defined legal and ethical framework. Stem Cell Therapy is a proven way to improve your body function. And when used properly by medical professionals, has helped improved the quality of life of thousands of people.

One of the most frequent misconceptions encountered in the field of regenerative medicine is to think of PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) therapies as the equivalent or the same as Stem Cell Treatments. In this blog post I will go over the differences between PRP Therapy and Stem Cell Therapy.

What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem Cells, on the other hand, are the unspecialized, undifferentiated, immature cells that can divide and differentiate into specific type of cells and tissues. And Stem Cell Therapy refers to the use of these types of cells with therapeutic purposes. What Happens in Stem Cell therapy is that stem cells are directly used to regenerate or repair damaged tissue.  There are different kinds of stem cell therapies that are usually classified according to the source of the stem cells. Currently, the most effective, ethical and scientifically approached type of stem cell therapy is Autologous Stem Cell Therapy, which is when the source of the stem cells is the patient’s own body.  In the human body are several organs with high concentration of stem cells. The Bone Marrow, is one the most accessible and highly concentrated source of stem cells, for this sole reason Bone Marrow derived stem cell therapies are currently the most widely used and effective type of Stem Cell Therapy. Bone Marrow is composed by is composed of hematopoietic cells, marrow adipose tissue, growth factors and supportive stromal cells. When using Bone Marrow, we take advantage of the stem cells within the bone marrow, and the growth factors that help activate stem cells (as in PRP).

What is PRP?

PRP stands for Platelet Rich Plasma, is a component of blood that contains platelet concentrations above the normal level and includes platelet-related growth factors and plasma-derived fibrinogen.  What happens in PRP therapy is that a simple blood draw is taken from a person, most commonly from the arm, and its put into a test tube to be centrifuged (a process that consists in applying centrifuge force to separate particles from a solution) this results in a 3 layered substance. The top layer consists of a  clear solution of blood plasma; the second layer is called the buffy coat; which is a thin layer of leukocytes (white blood cells) mixed with platelets in the middle, and the third layer is composed of erythrocytes (red blood cells) at the very bottom of the centrifuged tube.

The most important part, the one that we use for PRP therapy is the second or middle layer, the thin layer called the buffy coat. In here there are concentrated platelets, concentrated growth factors and white blood cells. When using PRP we are not using stem cells. What is used to help tissue regenerate and/or repair is the growth factors, that not also help your tissue regenerate they also help by communicating with your body, and letting your body know that stem cells are needed in that part, PRP is some kind of stem cell activation therapy. Platelets are the frontline healing response to injuries as they release growth factors for tissue repair. The effectiveness of PRP relies in the ability of these growth factor to recruit your own body stem cells.

PRP VS Stem Cell Therapy

Both are two effective and commonly used alternatives in regenerative medicine, which have shown promising results to treat a wide range of medical conditions. Both treatments rely on the ability of the body to heal and repair itself. The main difference is that stem cell therapy refers to the direct use of the actual stem cells while PRP is the use platelet-related growth factors that encourage the presence of stem cells.  As you can deduct, PRP Therapy is not remotely as effective as Stem Cell Therapy. To Find out which option is best you (PRP versus Stem Cell Therapy) is important to consider all factors (including the financial aspect). At ProgenCell we can help you determine which one is the best option for your Case. Start your Evaluation Process Now or contact us to schedule your consultation.
