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? Crohn’s Disease is an autoimmune disease that causes the chronic inflammation of the digestive tract. Crohn’s can affect the bowels, stomach, rectum, and even the mouth and esophagus. Symptoms of the disease include painful abdominal cramping, bloody stools, pain in the rectum, bloating, nausea and vomiting, excessive gas and diarrhea.

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...

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...

Are you experiencing joint pain? Muscle weakness? Stiffness with movement? You may be experiencing the signs and symptoms of osteoarthritis. Dr. Johnson treats osteoarthritis patients using stem cell therapy that uses their very own stem cells. Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It can impact any joint of the body. Common joints affected include the hips and knees, but many patients experience osteoarthritis in their wrists, hands, and fingers. Some people experience it in their spine, too. Osteoarthritis can strike at any age, but the typical onset is after the age of 40 as a result of aging. Younger patients with the condition may experience it as a result of injury or wear and tear caused by overuse. Symptoms of the condition include pain in a joint or joints that occurs with movement, stiffness in joints after lying down or sitting for long periods, joints that are swollen...

The Pain of PN

nerves
Peripheral neuropathy is a painful nerve condition impacting some 20 million Americans each year. Symptoms of the condition include burning, paralysis, pain, tingling, and numbness, usually in the feet and legs. Patients with the condition are also at risk of developing sores and ulcers on their legs and feet, leaving them open to infection. Peripheral neuropathy develops when the nervous system becomes damaged by injury or illness, and the condition can impact the motor and sensory nerves, as well as the nerves that control the actions of our body’s automatic systems, like digestion. Dr. Johnson treats patients with peripheral neuropathy with stem cell therapy here at Innovations Stem Cells. Causes of the condition include exposure to toxins and alcohol abuse. Guillain-Barre Syndrome, an auto-immune disorder that attacks the body’s peripheral nerves which help control muscle movements, can also cause peripheral neuropathy.  Much of the time the cause is unknown.  Diabetics...

Take Heart: New Study on Stem Cells Shows Potential for Healing Damaged Heart Muscle

heart
A Japanese study published in the Journal of the American Heart Association in April shows promise that stem cells taken from the thigh of a heart failure patient could be a new way to treat heart failure. Researchers on the project performed at Osaka University have used the stem cells found in the muscle tissue of the thigh to create a patch to repair damaged heart muscle. This is extremely exciting news for physicians and stem cell researchers around the world, as cardiac tissue does not easily regenerate, if it regenerates at all. As part of the project, the Japanese scientists isolated the stem cell from the rest of the tissue and organized them into a 4-cm patch. They glued this stem cell patch to damaged areas on the hearts of 27 study participants to help regenerate cells and boost performance in surrounding tissue. The growth factors contained in the...

Taking Control: How the Body Controls Stem Cells

research
An international team of researchers in combination with scientists from the Luxembourg Center for System Biomedicine at the University of Luxembourg has discovered how the body develops red and white blood cells from progenitor cells. Researchers on the project are hopeful that their new discovery will lead to explanations as to how the body creates different cells and improved stem cell treatments. Progenitor cells, like stem cells, have the ability to change into a specific cell type. Although more specific than a stem cell, they are not as defined as a specific cell type like a skin cell or a nerve cell. Progenitor cells and stem cells differ in the fact that stem cells replicate multiple times without end, while progenitor stem cells have a limit to how often they can divide. Researchers on the project applied growth hormones to the blood cells of mice and watched how these cells...

Stem Cells Research May Help Save Heart Attack Patients

heart-attack
Every day of the year, scientists and researchers are working on new applications and treatments for stem cells in order to treat patients for a range of conditions – from spinal injuries, nerve conditions, lung diseases and much more. One new application of stem cell therapy has been found to treat damaged heart muscle tissue after a patient suffers a heart attack. All things stem cell is Dr. Johnson’s passion – so we are excited to share yet another example of the benefits of stem cells. Statistics from the Centers for Disease Control estimate that every 43 seconds, someone in the United States suffers a heart attack. Heart attacks occur when blood vessels become blocked, either as a result of a blood clot or from atherosclerosis, which occurs as a result of plaque buildup from a bad diet, disease, or genetics. When heart attacks occur, the muscle of the heart...

Stem Cell Treatments for Achilles Tendon Injuries Get Patients Back to Activity Faster Than Traditional Treatments

soccer-kick
Achilles tendonitis and tears are painful conditions that sideline many athletes and active individuals from their favorite sports or activities each year. Patients with these injuries often become frustrated with traditional self-care treatments like rest, ice and over the counter pain relievers because their inability to bring relief. Surgical interventions also do not guarantee results, and patients, tired of pain and inactivity, are now turning to new therapies. One new therapy is SVF stem cell therapy that uses stem cells to treat damaged Achilles tendons and other soft tissue injuries. The Achilles tendon is a band of thick, tough tissue that connects the calf muscle to the heel bone in the foot. It is the largest tendon in the human body, and also the most strong. This tendon gives the foot its ability to flex, and plays a key role in normal daily functions walking, and other physical activities like...

How Stem Cells Can Help ED

elderly-laughing-couple
Many patients with erectile dysfunction chalk the disorder up to simply a consequence of getting older. While erectile dysfunction is more common in men over the age of seventy-five, it can actually happen at any age. Over three million men in the United States are diagnosed with erectile dysfunction each year, making it one of the most common health complaints reported by men. Erectile dysfunction can be frustrating, embarrassing, stressful, and cause strain on intimate relationships. Dr. Johnson treats men for erectile dysfunction with stem cell therapy to bring back function – and self-confidence. While aging may be a cause of erectile dysfunction, many other factors contribute to the disorder, as well. Physical causes of erectile dysfunction include injuries, the use of certain medications, hormonal issues, such as low testosterone, and some health conditions, like diabetes, high blood pressure, and Peyronie’s Disease. Other factors may be psychological or emotional, like stress...

Stem Cell Therapy Provides Relief for Peyronie's Patients

shutterstock_96672334
Peyronie’s disease is a painful inflammatory condition that results in erectile dysfunction in many men and causes the development and buildup of tough scar tissue inside of the penis. This scar tissue buildup causes the penis to curve – resulting in painful erections and for many, embarrassing sexual dysfunction. Treatment for Peyronie’s disease involves a range of long-term therapies that include vitamins and hormones, but may sufferers live without treatment, out of embarrassment. Peyronie’s patients do not have to suffer any longer, however, as new treatments involving stem cells have become available to reduce inflammation and restore sexual function for many men. The penis is made up of sponge-like tissue that when filled with blood expands and stretches. This tissue is surrounded by a sheath-like membrane that protects the inner tissue of the penis. When a penis functions normally, the skin of the penis stays flexible to allow the tissue...
