The Importance of Stem Cells As We Get Older

Have you ever noticed how easily a baby or small child bounces back from an injury?

Have you also noticed as you have gotten older, your ability to bounce back from an injury or illness becomes a little bit harder?

There is a reason for that.

Stem cells are the body’s natural repair kit or system.  When we are born, we have the most active amount of stem cells in our bodies.  However, as we age, the number of stem cells decreases.  This explains why our bodies are not able to heal as quickly as we get older.

Below is a chart that shows how stem cells decrease as we age.

As you can see from the chart, the older we get, our bodies take longer to repair and recover.

This chart also shows us the importance of stem cell therapy as we age.  In order for us to heal and regenerate more quickly, we need more stem cells.

Stem cell therapy using Umbilical Cord Stem Cells can give our bodies the boost it needs in order to regenerate and heal itself.

This infusion of viable stem cells begin to seek out inflammation, balance the immune system and cause regenerative actions to take place.

How Many Times Should A Patient Get Stem Cell Therapy

Some patients come in and receive therapy for a particular condition or reason.  However, just because you get stem cell therapy doesn’t mean you stop losing stem cells.

As you age, you will still continue to lose stem cells.  That’s why it is important to consider on going stem cell therapy in order to keep a healthy supply of stem cells in your body.  Prevention is the key to success.
