Program Overview

Placenta Stem Cell Regeneration, Hormone Balancing, Platement-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy - Amazing Results.

This powerful regenerative program is actually three therapies – placenta stem cells, hormone balancing and platelet-rich plasma – all of which create powerful regeneration and healing results.  This state-of-the-art program actually encompasses the aspects of all 7 major theories of aging - see below.  

This is the only program of its kind in the world and is currently being delivered at our co-operating clinic in Mexico.

How Placenta Stem Cell Transplant Therapy Helps

As a remedy for aging these therapies are based on 30 years of research during which the evidences below have been observed and documented. As we age, the stem cell reserves we are born with decline. Our cells diminish in their ability to regenerate and repair tissue. Age-related changes occur in the skin, organs, sex glands, immune system, blood-forming system, muscles and other systems. These changes are all due to the decrease in the robustness of the cells and loss of stem cells.

Although an exact mechanism of action for the anti-aging effects of stem cell therapy are still being studied, one thing is certain: cells become progressively weaker over time and die. Thus, replacing aging cells with new ones, which stem cell therapy accomplishes, effectively remediates aging. 

Evidence of an anti-aging effect of stem cells is reported in the medical literature. In one report, stem cell preparations improved immune function and hormonal balance in patients undergoing cosmetic procedures, and thereby enhanced the cosmetic outcome.  A new study (see article below) has demonstrate that loss of Stem Cells Contributes to Premature Aging.

Anecdotal reports have consistently suggested an anti-aging effect of stem cell transplant therapy. Regularly patients reported unexpected positive side effects. These effects differed according to the individual's age and health status, but commonly reported benefits included:
  • Various effects leading to improved fitness, including increased feelings of energy, vigor and inner strength;
  • Improved mobility, coordination, strength and endurance; and increased desire for physical activity. 
  • Improved joint function and reduced symptoms of arthritis. 
  • Improved mental capacity, concentration and ability to maintain attention; increased clarity of thinking, speech and memory. 
  • Improved psychological state, including elevated mood and positive attitude; decreased irritability, sleepiness and apathy. 
  • Improved sleeping pattern, with decreased insomnia and other sleep disturbances, and feelings of being refreshed upon awakening. 
  • Restored activity of impaired and damaged internal organs and tissues. 
  • Normalized production of red and white blood cells and improved immune function. 
  • Enhanced sexual function.
  • Improved appetite.
Others have reported more unusual effects, such as improved hearing and color perception. Finally, some effects may not be immediately obvious, since changes take place on the cellular level.

Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP)

Platelet rich plasma (PRP) therapy is a revolutionary new treatment that relieves pain by promoting long lasting healing of musculoskeletal conditions. This rapidly emerging technique is showing exciting potential with osteoarthritis of the knee, shoulder, hip and spine, rotator cuff tears, chronic plantar fasciitis, anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries, pelvic pain and instability, back and neck injuries, tennis elbow, ankle sprains, tendonitis, and ligament sprains.  Tiger Woods, the famous golf professional and large numbers of professional sports athletes swear by PRP for treatment of their injuries and specifically to facilitate fast healing.

How does PRP therapy help?

The body’s first response to soft tissue injury is to deliver platelet cells. Packed with growth and healing factors, platelets initiate repair and attract the critical assistance of stem cells. PRP therapy’s natural healing process intensifies the body’s efforts by delivering a higher concentration of platelets. Because your own blood is used, there is no risk of a transmissible infection and a very low risk of allergic reaction

Hormone Balancing Therapy

It is clear nowadays that as we get older, all hormones decline; Human Growth hormone, testosterone in men and estrogen in women go down and that is reflected in many aspects of our body. This gradual decline results in the effects of aging commonly experienced by women and men.  Muscle mass is lost 1 % a year, bone density is also lost, skin texture is affected, the energy we need for everyday activities goes down. There is a controversy around replacing these hormones synthetically, so what if you can replace these precious hormones physiologically and by that I mean at the necessary levels that doesn’t have any negative consequences?  Hormone therapy replenishes the hormones our body needs to function at an optimum level.

Customized Patient Treatment & Special Bonus

This revolutionary state-of-the-art anti-aging program is customized to each individual's specific needs and physical condition.  IN ADDITION to this amazing program, each patient will also receive a Pelleve Wrinkle Reduction System treatment which offers patients a new, effective way to remove wrinkles and tighten sagging skin without surgery or injections!
   
Scientific Foundations

The key to the effectiveness of human stem cell transplant treatment and stem cell therapy as an anti-aging treatment may very well be due to the plasticity of these stem cells and their telomerase (an enzyme that influences chromosomes) activity. Stem cell therapy provides an infusion of several million new stem cells, capable of differentiating into any one of the 200 different cells that make up the human body, These cells can be mobilized to regenerate, repair and/or replace damaged or destroyed cells or tissues.

In addition, stem cell transplant procedures provide telomerase, a key enzyme. Telomerase has the ability to preserve or even lengthen the telomere component of each chromosome, prolonging the life of each individual cell and potentially slowing or even reversing the aging process.

Stem cell treatment offers the potential to help repair and renew the damaged tissues associated with these and other diseases and disorders. Billions of dollars are being spent in a worldwide explosion of scientific research, and initial clinical results are encouraging and many times phenomenal.

In the U.S and Western Europe, stem cell therapy primarily remains an area of research, however, its benefits are in the process of being rigorously studied. However, clinical stem cell therapy has been practiced routinely for up to 20 years in other countries such as the Mexico, Germany, China and the Ukraine. A quick search on the internet will reveal that tens of thousands of people worldwide have benefited from various types of stem cell therapy.

We use only placenta stem cells which have been used worldwide to successfully treat over 70 diseases. Keep in mind stem cells built your body and stem cells can help repair and renew your body.

Numerous studies performed by various scientific teams throughout the world, including the National Institute of Health[1] have clearly established that the higher the levels of circulating stem cells the better the ability of the body to maintain optimal health. A recent publication in the New England Journal of Medicine[2] reported that the level of stem cells in the blood was one of the best indicators of cardiovascular health. Elevating the number of stem cells in the blood has been shown to improve health in many ways. [3-6]

New Study Finds Loss of Stem Cells
Contributes to Premature Aging

Medical News Today, June 9, 2007

The early aging and loss of stem cell reservoirs in adult mice is dependent on the deletion of a gene important in embryo development. The discovery was made by researchers at the Abramson Family Cancer Research Institute of the University of Pennsylvania.

Specific varieties of cancer and other disorders in humans are consequences of protein mutations that transpire during DNA damage response. Critical for this response to damaged DNA is a gene called ATR. The inaugural issue of Cell Stem Cell has published the new findings.

"The reason we're seeing the early signs of aging in these mice is that we're exhausting their ability to renew tissues," says Eric J. Brown, PhD, Assistant Professor of Cancer Biology. "We believe these findings may be helpful to the aging and oncology fields since premature aging syndromes and many cancers involve the loss of DNA repair genes."

Within three to four months, the mice used in the study began to exhibit signs of osteoporosis, graying hair, and hair loss. These were obvious characteristics of premature aging. All the symptoms occurred when the researchers deleted ATR in the adult mice tissue.

A reservoir of specific adult stem cells exists in most tissues for the function of self-renewal. Since multiple divisions lead to natural breaks in DNA, in order to preserve the integrity of the DNA, these stem cells don't divide as frequently as other cell types. However, to replenish tissue with new cells, they are capable of rapid division when necessary.

Initially, 10 to 20 percent of cells that escaped ATR deletion were able to reconstitute tissues in the engineered mice explained Brown. But overall, the majority of mouse cells without ATR had an overwhelming amount of DNA damage and could not contribute to tissue renewal.

"Think of aging as a slow loss of stem cells, a deterioration of pools of cells that reside in each tissue type," says Brown. We accelerated the aging process by wiping out a large fraction of these cells prematurely, in one fell swoop. Essentially, these mice start their young adulthood with two strikes against them in terms of long-term tissue maintenance, and so, they subsequently age before their time."

Brown, first author Yaroslava Ruzankina, and Amma Asare will be using the new knowledge of how stem cells, DNA repair, and the aging process interconnect in the mouse model to discover compounds that preserve stem cells and may, consequentially, suppress aging

Theories of Aging

AGING is a complex process, and its causes are not completely understood. Leading theories of aging currently include:

The DNA/Genetic Theory:
Our DNA is a genetic blueprint inherited from our parents. We are therefore born with a unique genetic code, which determines how certain factors affect the rate at which we age. DNA damage can thus be thought of as a cumulative phenomenon based on our lifestyle, diet, and exposure to certain toxins, pollutants, UV radiation or other environmental influences. In addition, as we age, the mechanisms responsible for the repair of genetic damage become less effective. This genetic damage can result in the production of abnormal proteins and sugar-protein complexes. This can result in a loss of elasticity and stiffening of cells and organs, all common features of aging.

The Neuroendocrine Theory: This theory suggests that the aging process is programmed by the brain via the hypothalamus and pituitary system which regulate the release of key hormones influencing cell metabolism, protein synthesis, immune function, and the neuronal and biochemical functioning of all of the cells in the body. As we age, the hypothalamus loses its precise regulatory ability and the secretion of many of these hormones gradually decreases, reducing effectiveness and leading to hormone imbalance and the effects of aging.

The Free Radical Theory:
The production of energy by every cell in the body (a process referred to as cellular respiration) is required for the sustenance of life. Environmental toxins, air pollution and ultraviolet radiation, as well as diet, tobacco, and alcohol all result in the production of highly reactive cell by-products referred to as free radicals. These free radicals attack the structures of the cell, resulting in the accumulation of toxic metabolites that interfere with cell membrane function, and DNA/RNA and protein synthesis, thus decreasing cell energy production, and potentially accelerating the aging process.

The Immune Theory:
As we age, there is a gradual decrease in the functioning of our immune system. The thymus gland is partially responsible for the production of cells that protect us from infections, cancers, and certain immune disorders. The functionality of this gland decreases 80-90% by the time we reach middle age. With advancing age, our immune system is less able to produce sufficient numbers of antibodies and adequate natural immune defense cells (macrophages and NK cells). There is also an increased tendency to produce antibodies directed against one's own cells, a condition referred to as an auto-immune disorder. As a result, the functional capacity of our immune system declines and we are more susceptible to the ravages of the aging process.

The Cell Metabolism Theory: Some scientists are studying how reducing calorie consumption can slow down cell division and lengthen the lifespan. This has been shown in animal studies, but is thought too difficult for humans to endure for an entire lifetime.

The Telomerase Theory:
Cells in the body will normally divide approximately 50 times before they simply stop dividing, and eventually die. Based on this theory, there is a gradual deterioration of our bodies over time (aging), secondary to a decrease in the number and functioning of our cells. A possible explanation for this pre-programmed cell death is due to the telomere, a cap on the end of each of the chromosomes making up the human genome. This can be visualized as similar the plastic cap on the end of a shoelace. With each cell division, the telomere shortens. After a specific number of cell divisions, the telomere is whittled away, and the end of the chromosome becomes frayed (just like a shoelace) and stops dividing, leading to cellular dysfunction and cell death (apoptosis). Over time, this cumulative cell senescence (death) contributes to the aging process. In 1989, an enzyme was discovered which could prevent the shortening of the telomere. This enzyme was called Telomerase. Telomerase acts to repair the damage to telomeres and helps to maintain the telomere's length and stability, prolonging the ability of the cell to continue dividing. Telomerase could hold the key to unlocking the mystery of aging by its ability to prolong cell division and slow down or even reverse the aging process.

Loss of Stem Cells: As we age, the native stem cell reserves we are born with diminish, along with our ability to repair and regenerate tissues. Our bodies increasingly accumulate damaged and dysfunctional cells, leading to age-related changes in the skin, organs, sex glands, immune system, blood-forming system, muscles and other systems.

THE OPTIMUM HEALTH REGENERATION CENTER'S ANTI-AGING REGENERATION THERAPY ACTUALLY ENCOMPASSES THE MAJOR ASPECTS OF ALL THE 7 MAJOR THEORIES OF AGING ABOVE BY:

Regulate our hormonal system by providing growth factors and hormones in physiological levels to maintain muscle, bone and skin mass.

Optimize our circulation to prevent main organs malfunction. By increasing our circulation system we bring oxygen to all our body specially to the main organs like the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs, liver and the big one the skin. But when we age, our blood supply starts to diminish and these main organs start to pay the price; thousands of neurons start to die every month; the heart becomes weak; the kidneys start to deteriorate; the lungs diminish their function and the skin gets thinner and wrinkly. So maintaining or improving this system brings back or keeps these organs in optimal conditions.

Modulate the immune system to help prevent major infections and tumors.

Provide powerful placenta stem cells and growth factors to repair and regenerate existing non-optimum conditions.
