Over the past decade, medicine has taken some great leaps forward in treating many serious health disorders. However, where once mainstream healthcare could offer only three types of treatments—medications, surgery, and or radiation—there now has emerged a fourth approach. It is called stem cell therapy. It is an approach that spares patients having any potential side effects, long recovery times, and/or associated pain. Stem cell therapy is a treatment that effectively allows the body to heal itself. And while this may sound too good to be true, the emerging scientific evidence shows it to work—and work well. What You Must Know About Stem Cell Therapy is a clearly written and comprehensive guide that explains how this remarkable new treatment actually works, and what specific ailments it can be used to treat.
We are all born with stem cells. These are the fundamental building block cells that go on to turn into all the other specialized cells in our bodies—skin, muscles, bones, blood, and all of our organs. By utilizing the right stem cells, the body has the ability to repair its damaged or weakened parts. While initially controversial, researchers have been able to cull stems from non-controversial sources. The book covers the history of this therapy and provides the reader with a closer look at some of the most important stem cell breakthroughs for heart disease, COPD, autoimmune disorders, nerve damage, osteoarthritis, body part replacements, and more.
The march forward of traditional medicine too often moves at a relatively slow pace—but it does not have to remain that way. By knowing the facts and making the appropriate choices for yourself and your loved ones, you can take a step into the future—now. What You Must Know About Stem Cell Therapy can be your guide to a healthier you.
