Chronic Diseases

What should I know about chronic diseases?

Chronic diseases all share one characteristic: Once they develop, they can’t be cured with the conventional medical treatments currently available.

These are a few examples of common chronic diseases:

  • Diabetes
  • Obesity
  • Rheumatoid arthritis
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Systemic lupus
  • Heart disease
  • Chronic kidney disease
  • Multiple sclerosis

Stem cell therapy helps many patients manage these chronic diseases and others, providing natural, holistic healing that improves your symptoms and may stop disease progression. 

What increases my risk of developing a chronic disease?

You’re more likely to develop a chronic disease if you:

  • Eat an unhealthy diet high in sugar, salt, and fats
  • Don’t get regular physical activity
  • Become overweight or obese
  • Drink too much alcohol
  • Use tobacco products
  • Live with ongoing stress

You can tell from this list that preventing chronic disease depends on lifestyle habits, such as eating a healthy diet and maintaining a healthy weight.

What types of regenerative therapies treat chronic diseases?

The experts at Stem Cells Specialist NY use stem cell therapy to heal problems caused by chronic diseases. Stem cells can continuously divide, creating a new stem cell that develops into the different types of cells needed to repair and heal your body.

When providing stem cell therapy, your doctor at Stem Cells Specialist NY uses liposuction to remove a small amount of fat from your tummy, then separates adult stem cells from the fat. In addition to their ability to self-replicate, these cells have distinct functional properties. For example, they’re potent anti-inflammatory agents and they help regulate your immune system.

Through these different actions, stem cells effectively improve chronic diseases. Diabetes offers just one example. When the team at Stem Cells Specialist NY uses stem cell therapy for patients with diabetes, the treatment often improves blood glucose levels, decreases HbA1C levels, and reduces the need for insulin or other daily medications.

What other therapies support chronic diseases?

With a dedication to providing holistic health care, the doctors at Stem Cells Specialist NY combine several treatments to promote your long-term health. In addition to stem cells for healing and repair, you also receive an anti-inflammatory intracellular cleanse.

Your doctor at Stem Cells Specialist NY helps you develop an anti-inflammatory eating plan that promotes weight loss, or weight maintenance if you’re at a healthy weight, while maintaining the results of your stem cell treatment.
