Stem Cell Therapy Q & A

Lifestyles Healthcare Group

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are undifferentiated cells that are capable of giving rise to indefinitely more cells of the same type. They have the remarkable potential to develop into many different cell types in the body and serve as what can be accurately describe as an “internal repair system,” replenishing other cells. Each divided cell has the potential to become another type of cell with a specialized function, such as a muscle cell, a red blood cell, or a brain cell.

What is Stem
Cell Therapy ?

Stem cell therapy is the administration of umbilical cord stem cells (UCSC) into a patient’s body based on the recommendation from your medical provider or nurse practitioner. The cells can be administered through injection or IV infusion to maximize the therapy’s reach.

Where do stem cells 
come from ?

Umbilical Cord Stem Cells are derived exclusively from the umbilical cord tissue of healthy birthed babies & healthy mothers, which is the safest and least-invasive method of extraction available.

What do
stem cells do?

Seek out degeneration They build, repair, and grow new tissue

Anti-inflammatory They are effective in reducing inflammation

Immunomodulatory They help modulate the body’s immune responses

What makes them special?
The future of medicine
A search of www.clinicaltrials.gov provides information on more than 4,000 clinical trials being conducted worldwide.

Pluripotent A pluripotent cell has the capability of developing into various types of cells or tissues self-renewal Stem cells replicate themselves every 28 hours for 65 generations, giving rise to millions of undifferentiated cells

Advantages of Umbilical Cord
Stem Cells Therapy

  • Stem cells are immune system privileged, so anyone can be treated.
  • Stem cells support anti-inflammatory activity, immune modulating capacity, and contain the optimum ability to stimulate regeneration.
  • Stem cells can be administered multiple times in uniform dosages that contain high cells counts. 
    Stem cells can be administered two ways: intra-articular (injected directly) or through an intravenous (I.V.) infusion.

THe Procedure

1 Before the Therapy

If possible, stop or reduce all aspirin products, non-steroidals, Vitamin E supplementation, and the use of fish oil at least five days before the therapy. Be sure to stay hydrated prior to the procedure.

2 The Therapy

The duration of the therapy is short, simple, and can take between ten to twenty minutes depending on the amount administered and the procedure chosen. This time will include cleaning and prepping the injection points.

3 After the Therapy

If possible, stop or reduce anti-inflammatory medication for at least one to two weeks. Remember: Stem cells replicate every 28 hours through 65 cycles of replication.

At 3-4 Weeks Post-Therapy: Light exercises and stretching; no high-impact activities.

One Month Post-Therapy: Aggressive stretching, light-weight training; as tolerated by joints

Second Month-Post Therapy: Increase workout regiment and sport-specific activities

Is it Safe? And why?

Yes! The use of Umbilical Cord Stem Cells is FDA cleared and our provider abides by all of the most stringent medical guidelines. Your comfort, safety, and recovery are the top concern. 


The cells are rigorously tested and screened under NIH, FDA, AATB, and AABB guidelines. 


Because UCSC are less mature than other cells, the body’s immune system is unable to recognize them as foreign and therefore, they are not rejected. There has never been a documented instance of rejection in graft vs. host. Journal of Translational Medicine 2007, Stem Cell Therapy for Autism. Thomas E.
