Here’s a look at the variety of ways in which the body heals itself:
Here’s a look at the different types of stem cells:
Mesenchymal Stem Cells - can renew bone cells, fat cells, muscle cells, and cartilage cells.
Epithelial Stem Cells - regenerate skin.
Neural Stem Cells - revive nerve tissue in the brain and spinal cord.
A variety of lifestyle changes may be implemented to ensure that your body is sufficiently rejuvenated and able to fight injury and disease:
Getting sufficient rest - The recommended amount of rest is eight hours for adults and up to 11 hours for children. As mentioned above, the body is in a constant state of restoring and regenerating itself and a large portion of this happens when we are asleep and our body’s energy is not being redirected towards everyday chores and tasks. Lack of sleep is a sure way to weaken one’s immune system.
A healthy diet - Consuming nutrient-rich, whole foods has numerous benefits as opposed to heavily-processed foods high in colorants, preservatives, and sugar. A consistently bad diet may put an enormous amount of pressure on the immune system. Heavily processed diets can lead to inflammation and gut problems later on in life.
Dr. Erik Lundquist is the founder and director of Temecula Center for Integrative Medicine, specializing in all aspects of Functional Medicine. He is an advocate for the benefits of regenerative medicine. Functional Medicine is a result of the wonders of technological innovation and is the process of creating living tissue to heal or replace tissues or organs that have been damaged due to age, illness, or birth defects. For prescribed treatments to be effective, lifestyle changes are also required. The body of a chronic smoker or morbidly obese person will still struggle to regenerate and heal itself adequately, no matter the other treatments the body has undergone. A holistic approach is required to achieve optimal health.
Temecula Center for Integrative Medicine makes use of the following therapies:
Ozone Injection Therapy - helps to encourage cellular metabolism. This helps to assist the immune system in the healing process and injects oxygen into cells to promote tissue regeneration. It also prompts the creation of antioxidants.
Stem cell therapy - is administered with an injection to revert stem cell function to that of a younger age. Doing so helps to reduce inflammation, rejuvenate tissue and benefit the area where the injection is administered
PEMF (Pulsed Electromagnetic Field) - utilizes a resonating magnetic field to return the mitochondria to their peak performance. Once the cells have been restored, they can reproduce and create other healthy cells. (Lundquist, 2019)
