What is Cell Therapy?

Every tissue in the human body is composed by cells that are responsible of running a function and maintenance of each organ. The cells and their natural combinations has been used successfully for over 50 years, an example of this is the bone marrow transplant and organ tissues transplants like skin and cornea.

Cell Therapy was developed in Switzerland in the 1930 by Dr. Paul Niehans. The principles of the cell therapy can be reduced to a simple formula “Like cures like”*. Cell therapy is focused in regenerating damaged tissues and organs by rejuvenating them and by stimulating the body’s own repair mechanism to heal*.

cell therapy

Damaged organs and tissues can be regenerated, strengthen or invigorated by new living cells obtained from unborn or very young animals thanks to several scientific procedures*. Once these cells get in the body, are directed by the own patient’s organism towards the diseased organ or tissue to be treated with the purpose of making it strong and regenerating its cellular structure*.

Cell therapy application takes place in the following diseases and organs:

  • Issues in the locomotor system.
  • Diabetes Mellitus types 1 and 2.
  • Heart diseases.
  • Blood circulation problems, including arthrosclerosis.
  • Kidney failure.
  • Hepatic and pancreatic problems.
  • Autoimmune diseases such as Chron’s Disease and Multiple Sclerosis.
  • Aids the immune system in diseases such as HIV and Cancer.
  • Brain pathologies.
  • Pulmonary fibrosis.
  • Degenerative diseases of joints and bones.
  • Gastrointestinal problems.
  • Chronic infections.
  • Respiratory and skin allergies.

For a complete treatment, several cells can be administered at the same time. The organism’s auto identification and distribution processes are the ones that allow to carry the cells to related organs and tissues.

The length of the cell therapy varies according the patient’s condition and its benefits depend on the cells administered. Nowadays, cell therapy is in a big development phase which is well documented by an important and increasing number of medical researches with the purpose of developing more effective treatments*.

Stem Cells

Stem cells have the special features of auto regeneration and the ability of producing several differentiated cells like skin cells, hepatocytes, myocytes, neurons, and others; all of this is thanks to all the genetic information carry by them of each of our body organs. Due to this characteristics, stem cells are stablished as a therapeutic method, reversing the pathology that suffers the patient*.

stem cells

There are different kinds of stem cells, each of them has its own features and functions.

The Adult Stem Cells (ASC) stay in our organism even after the embryonic development with the objective of transmitting genetic information to our children. It has been discovered that these cells are found in organs with poor regeneration ability like muscles, liver and even the brain. This kind of cells are also known as multipotent because of their ability of producing every cell type starting from a tissue.

The Embryonic Stem Cells (ESC), are pluripotent stem cells because they are able to differentiate in almost all the tissues of our body. This cells have unlimited regeneration abilities and when they are cultivated in a controlled way they can produce any tissue needed.

Stem cells are used for treating several diseases such as:

  • Parkinson.
  • Diabetes Mellitus insulin dependent in which pancreas’s beta cells have been destroyed by an immune attack.
  • Leukemia.
  • Myocardial infarction.

sheep

Stem cells must come from animals with a strong immune system, this is why the best donor is the sheep because its cells have albumin, making them very well tolerated by humans and practically there is no rejection from the recipient organism. This compatibility between human and sheep allows the damaged cells of specific organs to be reinforced by the young cells, regenerating them and stimulating their proper functioning.

The cells distributed in Provita Health Store are lyophilized alive because, through this process, the cells are preserved more efficiently and the biological substances’ purity is guaranteed. This treatment has a large length effect and repairs the affected organs*. With cell therapy, we obtain two fundamental effects, our whole body revitalization and a focalized effect on the treated organs*.

Cell therapy is contraindicated in infectious and inflammatory diseases, above all, in the affected area. Furthermore, it is not recommended the administration of the therapy while there are isolated infectious foci such as dental abscess and tonsillitis.

Thymus Therapy

As we know, we have to maintain our immune system strong and healthy in order to keep our body free of diseases. The thymus is a gland that is part of this function because it regulates our body defenses and hence, it is called the “master gland” of the human body.

thymus gland

This gland is located bellow the thyroid gland and behind the breastbone. In the childhood it is the heaviest organ of the body, and during puberty the epithelial and lymphatic thymus tissues are progressively replaced by connective tissue and blood vessels. The Thymus hormones support the psychic-nervous and endocrine processes and influence in the organism’s defenses.

Living beings that does not have thymus die in a short time as consequence of infections caused by opportunist microorganism, because of a total deficiency in the immune system. The experience acquired about the Human Immunodeficiency Virus infection, known as AIDS, clearly shows that in the course of the illness the thymus and the lymphocytes dependent of it are destroyed which leads to a series of severe diseases.

The Thymus has the following functions:

  • Regulates digestive system, liver, gall bladder, pancreas, kidneys, etc.
  • Works with the lymphatic and endocrine system.
  • Strengthens the immune system.
  • Balances the white and red blood cells amounts and stimulates the blood flow for diminishing cardiovascular problems.

The blood cells produced by the Thymus are programmed for maintaining the body’s defenses until adolescence. Thymus Therapy is used in the following pathologies:

  • Skin and respiratory allergic diseases.
  • Infectious diseases like herpes simplex, herpes zoster, hepatitis B and C, HIV, flu and others.
  • Skin illnesses such as dermatitis.
  • Degenerative diseases due to aging.
  • Immune system problems and imbalances.
  • Locomotor system problems.
  • Neuro-immune and emotional disorders caused by stress.
  • Autoimmune diseases such as diabetes, cancer, arthritis rheumatoid, lupus, etc.

immune system

Also, the Thymus Therapy is recommended to apply after major illness and surgical procedure. This is a long term treatment, however, you can notice a remarkable general health improvement after several weeks*. What this therapy does is stimulating the cooperation between defense cells, forming lymphocytes in the bone marrow in order to mature them so they can be useful defense cells*.

There are more than 1500 medical researches that support this benefits and prove the balance between support suppressor cells and immune system modulation and regulation.

Thymus lymphocytes

The lymphocytes of the thymus or T Lymphocytes are produced in the bone marrow’s stem cells through the thymus. The 3% of lymphocytes are directed to the blood and the other 97% stay in the thymus with the role of recognize individual cells of our organism. The thymus develops lymphocytes until de they reach maturity and once they reach this phase, they turn to be immune cells from the lymph system.

T Lymphocytes recognize our body’s cells because all this information has been saved while they were at the thymus. Later, the T lymphocytes are formed in subgroups as cooperator T cells called Thymocytes. When it is necessary to defend the organism against infections or diseases, this cells produce immunoglobulins for attacking the aggressor agent. If there are no cooperator cells, the lymphocytes are not able to convert themselves in immunoglobulin plasma producer cells and the organism cannot defend itself from the attack.

lymphocytes

There are two other types of T lymphocytes, T Lymphocytes suppressors control the lymphocytes with the purpose of not allowing an over production of antibodies. T Lymphocytes cytotoxic have the function of eliminating foreign cells to the body such as the carcinogenic ones; this cells are part of the first cellular defense barrier.
