Investigating Inflammatory Bowel Disease : How Stem Cells Can Help Reduce Symptoms

digestion-3d
Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) isn’t exactly a topic that many people talk about. In fact, anything related to the bowels is pretty taboo in most conversations. Even though IBD doesn’t usually come up in everyday conversation, 1.6 million Americans experience the painful symptoms of IBD every day. Dr. Johnson treats patients with ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease, the two most prevalent forms of IBD with stem cell therapy at Innovations Stem Cell Center. What is Crohn’s Disease?

Saved by Stem Cells

stem-cell-therapy
CNN News reported in June the story of a South Dakota man healed debilitating pain in his wrist with stem cells taken from his own fat tissue. A Patient in Pain Saved by Stem Cells Bill Marlette had been living with extreme pain in his wrist for several years. The source of the pain was cysts and holes in the bones that made up his wrist. Marlette's cartilage, which serves as a cushion for the joints of the body, had been worn away, leaving him in extreme pain as his bones rubbed against each other. This pain made regular activities unbearable for Marlette, and even shaking hands and dressing himself became excruciating. After rounds of anti-inflammatory medications, Marlette still had pain and no cure for his problem. After discussing his options with his doctor, Marlette opted for stem cell therapy to heal his damaged wrist. How Stem Cells Can Heal...

Anatomy of Autoimmune Disease

doctor-body-small
According to the American Autoimmune Related Diseases Association, Inc., autoimmune diseases affect as many as 50 million people in the United States. These diseases often leave patients with chronic pain, or with other life-altering symptoms and disabilities that reduce their quality of life. Many of the patients we treat at Innovations Stem Cell Center have pain and other side effects caused by an autoimmune disease. What Are Autoimmune Diseases? Autoimmune diseases are painful and chronic health conditions that happen when the body’s own immune system attacks any of the healthy cells, organs, and tissues in the body. These attacks leave these cells, organs, and tissues damaged, disabled, and dysfunctional. According to the AARDA, there are over 100 known autoimmune illnesses. Autoimmune diseases cause illnesses like type 1 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, Crohn’s disease, muscular dystrophy, and multiple sclerosis. What Causes Autoimmune Diseases? Autoimmune diseases are caused by genetic and environmental...

Exercising and staying active are key components to staying healthy, but sometimes physical activity can lead to joint, muscle, and cartilage injuries that may leave you on the bench or out of the gym. These injuries, often caused by overuse, can be frustrating for many people because they take a long time to heal and require rest. Sometimes these injuries never completely heal, forcing many individuals to give up their active lifestyles. Stem cell therapy from Innovations Stem Cell Center can help heal damaged joint and connective tissue injuries, and get you back in the game. Types of Sports Injuries Many types of injuries can occur during physical activity, sports, and exercise. The most common injuries include tendonitis, or inflammation of the tendon, tears to cartilage or muscle tissue, and concussions. These injuries can be caused by repetitive use or trauma. These injuries can cause pain, limited motion, and in...

The Multiple Early Symptoms of MS

orange-ribbon
Multiple sclerosis, or MS, is an autoimmune disease that causes the immune system to attack the myelin sheath, the protective covering of the nerves of the brain and spinal cord. This causes the nerves to become chronically inflamed, causing pain, muscle spasms, memory loss and many other spontaneous and unpredictable symptoms. Dr. Johnson gives MS patients some relief from these symptoms through SVF stem cell therapy at Innovations Stem Cell Center and can also slow the progression of the disease. While the symptoms of MS vary widely among patients, there are several common warning signs of the disease. Muscle Weakness . Over 75 percent of MS patients have muscle weakness when this autoimmune disease is in its early stages, according to the National Multiple Sclerosis Society. For most of these patients, this weakness begins in the legs. Along with this weakness, many individuals also experience numbness and tingling. These symptoms...

Saving Skin with Stem Cells and the SkinGun

Skin and Stem Cells
New stem cell project, called the SkinGun, that has been used to successfully treat burn victims by growing new skin to replace damaged tissue using their own stem cells, according to Newsweek. The Skinny on the SkinGun The SkinGun is the first product of its kind. During the SkinGun treatment, a small sample of skin, about the size of a postage stamp, is taken from a from an unburned area of the burn victim's body. The skin sample is then spun to separate out the stem cells. Once the stem cells are separated, they are put into a solution. The stem cells are in their pure form, not altered in any way. The solution is then sprayed on the victim’s burned skin. Once the stem cells are deployed onto the patient’s damaged skin, they go to work repairing damaged tissue. The stem cell spray process is quick, and only takes...

Seeing New Hope for Macular Degeneration

older-eyes
Over 200,000 cases of age-related macular degeneration, or AMD, are diagnosed in the United States each year. AMD is the leading cause of vision loss in people over the age of 50. The loss of vision is very scary and extremely overwhelming for many patients. Dr. Johnson offers patients with age-related macular degeneration and other eye conditions hope and relief through stem cell therapy. What is Macular Degeneration? Age-related macular degeneration occurs when the macula of the retina in your eye becomes thin and worn. The macula is responsible for the sharpest vision in your eye and is what allows you to see fine details. When it becomes worn out, the central part of your vision becomes blocked. The loss of vision is especially unsettling for some patients because they retain their peripheral vision while losing sight in the middle of their eye- seeing a black dot in the middle...
