Stem cell therapies offer amazing promise to help regenerate all sorts of body parts. This article explains how they work and some cautions that must be observed with them. This article will be extended in the future.
WHAT IS STEM CELL THERAPY?
Stem cells are nothing more than totipotent cells in the body. These are less differentiated cells that, due to their unique nature, can differentiate into many types of cells. Most cells cannot do this. They are either leg cells, stomach cells, liver cells or some other type.
However, some cells in the body are called totipotent because they are undifferentiated and they can change themselves into many, if not all types of cells if needed. They are like universal replacement cells that can adapt and change into whichever type of cells the body happens to need. This is indeed an amazing ability.
The sperm and fertilized egg of a human being, of course, is one such totipotent cell. However, scientists have discovered that throughout a personŐs life, he or she also makes some of these universal replacement cells at all times and they are used to replace worn out cells whenever the existing cells cannot divide and reproduce fast enough.
Stem cell therapy is simply the extraction of these cells from the body and their use to then make other more specialized cells wherever they are needed. Fortunately, all that is often required to do this is to place the cells near the site of an injury or illness where cells have been destroyed. When this is done properly, the cells seem to know what they need to change into all by themselves.
PROBLEMS OF STEM CELL THERAPY
1. Cancer. Stem cells could turn into cancer cells instead of into the desired types of cells. This is possible, in theory. The trophoblast is the basic cell of cancer and it is one of the many cell lines possible for a stem cell to change into.
2. Stem cell therapy does nothing to enhance the nutrition of the body. One is not supplying nutrients, but only cells. Therefore, stem cell therapy is limited in its effects.
3. Stem cell therapy does little or nothing to eliminate from the body toxic metals or toxic chemicals. There may be some effects due to the vitality of the new cells, but it is quite limited. This will also limit the benefits of stem cell therapy.
4. Stem cell therapy does little to balance body chemistry, except perhaps locally where the stem cells act. This also limits the effectiveness of this therapy for some conditions.
Stem cell therapy is here to stay and promises much more than drugs can deliver. Stem cells are not toxic, and the therapy is quite simple. In fact, the glandular products used in nutritional balancing science are a very crude form of stem cell therapy that works well and is quite safe. The only danger is that of cancer, but this can be avoided if the right stem cells are used.
