How Can Placenta Stem Cell Therapy (PST) Help Heart and Circulatory Conditions?

Introduction to Heart Disease

The heart is like any other muscle, requiring oxygen and nutrient-rich blood for it to function. The coronary arteries that supply blood to the heart muscle spread across the surface of the heart, beginning at the base of the aorta and branching out to all areas of the heart muscle.

The coronary arteries are at risk for narrowing as cholesterol deposits, called plaques, build up inside the artery. If the arteries narrow enough, blood supply to the heart muscle may be compromised (slowed down), and this slowing of blood flow to the heart causes pain, or angina.

A heart attack or myocardial infarction occurs when a plaque ruptures, allowing a blood clot to form. This completely obstructs the artery, stopping all blood flow to part of the heart muscle, and that portion of muscle dies.

What are the risk factors for heart disease?

Risk factors for heart disease include:
  • Smoking
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Family history
  • Peripheral artery disease
  • Heart disease facts
Coronary artery disease is the most common cause of death in the United States. Over a million people each year will have a heart attack and 25% will die before they get to the hospital while or in the Emergency Department.

Prevention is the key to treatment of heart disease.

Diagnosis of heart disease is often made by careful history taken by a health care practitioner. Some individuals may have atypical symptoms, including almost none at all.

The testing strategy to confirm the diagnosis and plan appropriate treatment needs to be individualized for each patient diagnosed with heart disease.

Treatment of heart disease depends upon the severity of disease, and is often directed by the symptoms experienced by the affected individual.

World-wide studies and research have validated that various types of stem cells have a positive and regenerative effect for heart patients.   Stem cell studies have shown that new muscle can be rebuilt within the location of the heart attack, which will replace scar tissue.

Not only does stem cell treatment have the potential to prevent heart attacks from happening, but will also contribute to a better quality of life and health for the patient, avoiding overall heart failure in the future.

Stem cells to be promising in preventing deterioration of the heart after one suffers from a heart attack.

Stem cells have a strong potential in creating new blood vessels which will be used to strengthen blood supply to the heart through the use of stem cell transplants.

Improvement in the overall inflammatory and contracting processes of the heart following a heart attack which aids in halting any consequences and minimizes the chance for future heart failure.

Stem cells help stimulate growth of new blood vessels in order to increase blood supply needed to minimize chest pain. 

With respect to the heart, to have the ability to not only home into the damaged areas but also to initiate a series of biological events which both contribute in healing of the heart muscle. For example, animal studies have demonstrated that stem cell therapy will cause new muscle cells to be formed through stimulation of dormant stem cells that are already inside the heart muscle.  In these studies, the administered stem cells also transformed into new heart muscle cells.

improvement and higher levels of heart-pumping capability. In one study researchers reported that the heart's ability to pump blood increased from 44.1 percent to 48.9 percent. The report also indicated the average amount of dead tissue for the subjects decreased by 20 percent within four months of the stem cell implantation.

In the largest national stem cell study for heart disease  conducted by  Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, the first evidence that transplanting a potent form of stem cells into the heart muscle of subjects with severe angina results in less pain and an improved ability to walk. "This is the first study to show significant benefit in pain reduction and improved exercise capacity in this population with very advanced heart disease," said principal investigator Douglas Losordo, M.D.

Giving people with chronic heart failure injections of stem cells appears to improve their heart function and extend their lives, new research suggests. The benefits of the stem cell treatment were apparent within three months and persisted for the five years the patients were followed, says researcher Bodo-Eckehard Strauer, MD, of Heinrich Heine University in Dusseldorf, Germany.

That stem cell treatment improved the heart's ability to pump blood and restored blood flow to oxygen-starved heart muscle. Patients were able to exercise more.

In Dr. Robert Bolli's study, published in The Lancet, 16 patients with severe heart failure received a purified batch of cardiac stem cells. Within a year, their heart function markedly improved. The heart's pumping ability can be quantified through the "Left Ventricle Ejection Fraction," a measure of how much blood the heart pumps with each contraction. A patient with an LVEF of less than 40% is considered to suffer severe heart failure. When the study began, Bolli's patients had an average LVEF of 30.3%. Four months after receiving stem cells, it was 38.5%. Among seven patients who were followed for a full year, it improved to an astounding 42.5%. A control group of seven patients, given nothing but standard maintenance medications, showed no improvement at all.

How Can Placenta Stem Cell Therapy (PST) Help Heart and Circulatory Conditions?

PST is intended as an improvement on ones condition. It is not a “cure all” or “miracle pill.” We have performed thousands of procedures with positive results but of course results will vary according to each individual patient's existing conditions and lifestyle (attitude, stress, diet, exercise, etc.)! The Placenta stem cell and related protocol for heart and circulatory disorders is designed to be used with conventional medicine to give you the best of both.

As detailed in the research described above, stem cells have demonstrated their ability to aid the heart patient in a number of positive ways. 

PST takes an overall system-approach to combating the wide variety of heart symptoms and underlying causes. Placenta / Stem Cell Therapy (PST) and their unique growth factors have a positive health Impact  on heart and circulatory related issues because they enhance, repair and regenerate these Three Major Biological Systems in the body:

IMMUNE SYSTEM: (IMMUNOMODULATING THERAPY)


The scientific community is focusing much attention on this complex system because so many illnesses result from aberrations in this area. These are the auto-immune diseases (Rheumatoid arthritis, Lupus, Multiple sclerosis etc.) Many conditions like tuberculosis (TB), shingles or chronic infections start when the Immune system is down because of many conditions such as stress, steroid therapy, cancer therapy, or AIDS. PST provides all the vital substances and growth factors but without the toxicity due to their perfect balance in an organ (placenta) that is not designed or manipulated by humans. These substances, along with the increase in "Natural Killer" (NK) cells (these cells are responsible to attack cancerous or infected cells while they are circulating in our body) reset the Immune system the way it was when we were younger.

If this system is in top condition, the degenerative illnesses are delayed or stopped, the auto-immune conditions are helped and chronic infections are better controlled.

HORMONAL SYSTEM:

Studies done in men and women have shown that after the placenta is implanted, the hormonal profile is reset to the way it was years before. In men, there is a noticeable improvement of the initial rates of male hormones, and a new glandular balance that gives more energy and increases the libido. Recent discoveries about Prostate enlargement involve an alteration in sexual hormones as the main reason the prostate grows out of control. This explains why the PST can help this condition tremendously.

In women, the treatment appears to be an interesting alternative to Estrogen Replacement Therapy, given that there is a conversion of minor androgens to estrogen, and an increased secretion of progesterone without the possible side effects.

The fact that the placenta has so many Growth factors, explains why Placenta Stem Cell (PSC) patients are noticing the same improved anti-aging benefits usually attributed to HGH replacement therapy, such as:

Increased resistance to common illnesses, higher energy levels, better memory, increase of muscle mass and diminished visceral fat, preserved or improved bone density, lowered blood pressure, increased exercise performance, etc.

CIRCULATION SYSTEM:

As we all know, the most important nutrients that the body needs to be alive and healthy are, Oxygen and Glucose, and those are delivered by millions of blood vessels all over the body. With aging the circulation becomes less efficient, and if you add other factors like smoking, being sedentary, diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and other lipids, the result is that very important organs like the brain, heart, skin and ultimately the whole body suffers the effects of that inefficiency: poor memory, drier and paler skin, no energy and basically all the signs of aging appear. One of the first signals of improvement with PSC therapy is that the skin color becomes pinker and warmer after just two or three days of the implants, and the skin texture is better in just 3 to 4 weeks. That effect could be explained because of the Vascular Growth Factors that the placenta has along with the millions of Stem Cells.

By enhancing, repairing and regenerating these 3 main systems of the body, in addition to the regenerative placenta stem cells and growth factors, heart sufferers have the potential to receive remarkable improvements in their overall condition and quality of life.
