Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell facts:

By Priya Pandey

The controversial thing related to stem cell facts is that how they are used in healing the human body suffering from different diseases. There is no doubt that there are debates still going out on whether extraction of the cells from embryo is ethical or not but at the same time it is also a known fact that advantages of anything always overcome its disadvantages. Same is the thing in this case where people are being benefitted by using the stem cell therapy. Many chronic diseases have now become curable with the help of this technique.

In the underlined article we will be discussing about the stem cell facts. Basically stem cells are those cells which have the ability to differentiate in the body of the organisms. In other words the term organisms can be replaced by multi cellular organisms as well. These multi cellular organisms include animals, plants and even human beings. These cells not only divide in a large number without any restriction but they are also able to transform into many different types of cells. These cells produce tissues and organs of the multi cellular bodies. Division of cells has the basic purpose of healing the body.

Stem cell facts that how these cells work is like a fantasy. It sometimes happens that division of cells is not enough for healing the body. It is due to the fact that there are some of the cells which cannot be replaced. Moreover there are some cells which were not supposed to be replaced a few years back. For example there are certain cells which are lost on continuous basis in people undergoing chemotherapy in case of cancer. Now stem cell research has made it possible for the people to replace the damaged cells due to this therapy.

There are some other stem cell facts which people must know like the most experienced physician in the world for this therapy is Dr. Gonzalez of Mexico. He is bilingual that he can speak fluent English as well as Spanish. His success rate is enormous and people from all around the world come to him for the treatment of their chronic diseases. These chronic diseases include cardiovascular and pulmonary diseases, dental surgery, organ replacement like liver and renal, lung surgery, permanent treatment for diabetes, spinal cord injuries, autism, retinitis, Parkinson’s, cerebral palsy, baldness, depression, anti aging, cancer, arthritis etc.

Visiting Mexico for medical tour is not very expensive. It takes only $19,000 to be there. A Person also has the facilitation to receive treatment in the hotel in which he will be staying. He will not be required to visit any Mexican hospital. In addition, a person can have the entertainment in the most beautiful part of the world. Mexican food is very delicious. In short medical tour of a person can also entertain him as well as the treatment of his chronic diseases.

In short stem cell facts are mentioned here and it totally depends on the reader that how he takes them and treats them.


Here are just a few of Stem Cell Therapy treatments that are available:

Lung Diseases:

When you breathe, your lungs take in oxygen from the air and deliver it to the bloodstream. The cells in your body need oxygen to work and grow. During a normal day, you breathe nearly 25,000 times. People with lung disease have difficulty breathing. Millions of people in the U.S. have lung disease. If all types of lung disease are lumped together, it is the number three killer in the United States.

The term lung disease refers to many disorders affecting the lungs, such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, infections like influenza, pneumonia and tuberculosis, lung cancer, and many other breathing problems.

Multiple Sclerosis:

Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a disease in which the nerves of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) degenerate. Myelin, which provides a covering or insulation for nerves, improves the conduction of impulses along the nerves and also is important for maintaining the health of the nerves. In multiple sclerosis, inflammation causes the myelin to disappear. Consequently, the electrical impulses that travel along the nerves decelerate, that is, become slower. In addition, the nerves themselves are damaged. As more and more nerves are affected, a person experiences a progressive interference with functions that are controlled by the nervous system such as vision, speech, walking, writing, and memory.


Definition of Retinitis Pigmentosa:

Retinitis pigmentosa is the name given to a group of diseases that affect the retina.
The retina, located in the back of the eye, acts like the film in a camera. It is a delicate layer of cells which picks up the picture and transmits it to the brain – where the “seeing” actually occurs.

In retinitis pigmentosa, the retina begins to degenerate, which first causes peripheral (side) vision and night vision to diminish, and then, usually only decades later, the central vision as well.

Toxoplasmic retinitis, which may be either acquired or congenital, is caused by a microorganism. If the condition is congenital, the microorganism was passed to the fetus through the placenta. A similar type of retinitis is caused by a blood-borne infection that settles in the eye.

Exudative retinitis stems from unknown causes but may result in detachment of the retina from the internal surface of the eyeball.


The word hepatitis simply means an inflammation of the liver without pinpointing a specific cause. Someone with hepatitis may:

have one of several disorders, including viral or bacterial infection of the liver

have a liver injury caused by a toxin (poison)

have liver damage caused by interruption of the organ’s normal blood supply

be experiencing an attack by his or her own immune system through an autoimmune disorder

have experienced trauma to the abdomen in the area of the liver

Hepatitis is most commonly caused by one of three viruses:

the hepatitis A virus
the hepatitis B virus
the hepatitis C virus

In some rare cases, the Epstein Barr Virus (which causes mononucleosis) can also result in hepatitis because it can cause inflammation of the liver. Other viruses and bacteria that also can cause hepatitis include hepatitis D and E, chickenpox, and cytomegalovirus (CMV).


The diseases which are listed under Diabetes Mellitus are many with the most common being Type-1 diabetes and Type-2 diabetes. These are diseases of the metabolic system and involve the body’s ability in metabolizing sugar using the hormone insulin. Insulin helps the cells use the simple sugar glucose which is needed for repair, growth and energy.

In Type-1 diabetes, the body produces little or no insulin so those with this type of diabetes need to be on insulin therapy for their entire lives. Before 1924 Type-1 diabetes usually ended with dead after a couple of years but with the advent of insulin those who have this disease are now able to manage this chronic condition. Type-1 diabetes is also known as juvenile diabetes because those who have this type of diabetes are usually diagnosed with it between the ages of 9 and 15 years of age.


If you have lupus, your immune system attacks healthy cells and tissues by mistake. This can damage your joints, skin, blood vessels and organs. There are many kinds of lupus. The most common type, systemic lupus erythematosus, affects many parts of the body. Discoid lupus causes a rash that doesn’t go away. Subacute cutaneous lupus causes sores after being out in the sun. Another type can be caused by medication. Neonatal lupus, which is rare, affects newborns.

Anyone can get lupus, but women are most at risk. Lupus is also more common in African American, Hispanic, Asian and Native American women. The cause of lupus is not known.

Lupus has many symptoms. Some common ones are:

Joint pain or swelling
Muscle pain
Fever with no known cause
Red rashes, often on the face (also called the “butterfly rash”)
There is no one test to diagnose lupus, and it may take months or years to make the diagnosis. There is no cure for lupus, but medicines and lifestyle changes can help control it.


Parkinson’s disease is a disorder that affects nerve cells, or neurons, in a part of the brain that controls muscle movement. In Parkinson’s, neurons that make a chemical called dopamine die or do not work properly. Dopamine normally sends signals that help coordinate your movements. No one knows what damages these cells. Symptoms of Parkinson’s disease may include:

Trembling of hands, arms, legs, jaw and face
Stiffness of the arms, legs and trunk
Slowness of movement
Poor balance and coordination

As symptoms get worse, people with the disease may have trouble walking, talking or doing simple tasks. They may also have problems such as depression, sleep problems or trouble chewing, swallowing or speaking.

Parkinson’s usually begins around age 60, but it can start earlier. It is more common in men than in women. There is no cure for Parkinson’s disease. A variety of medicines sometimes help symptoms dramatically.

Anti Aging:

Medical Tour Cancun offers Stem Cell Therapy as an effective anti-aging treatment with placenta stem cells. Anti-aging therapy helps to improve overall physical condition of the patients resulting in less fatigue, improved gait and posture, and work capacity. Mental capacities improve, leading to acceleration of decision making and restoration of the short-term memory. Emotional balance is achieved. Anti-aging treatment with placenta stem cells leads to marked cosmetic effects, such as skin color improvement, fewer wrinkles, smoother skin, and sparkling eyes.

Stress Disorder:

Stress is simply a fact of nature — forces from the outside world affecting the individual. The individual responds to stress in ways that affect the individual as well as their environment. Hence, all living creatures are in a constant interchange with their surroundings (the ecosystem), both physically and behaviorally. Because of the overabundance of stress in our modern lives, we usually think of stress as a negative experience, but from a biological point of view, stress can be a neutral, negative, or positive experience. Stem Cell Therapy can be extremely beneficial to the patient who suffers from stress disorder.


Stem Cell therapy can replace damaged tissue and aging parts of our bodies in what we call regeneration.
