As we age, our bodies go through a lot of changes and decline as time passes. Unfortunately, our cells’ healing abilities go down as well. If only it was easy to fix with glue or adhesive tape, right? There is, however, an investigational study for fat stem cell therapy being conducted by Innovations Medical to help us out of this predicament. Dr. Johnson talks about it in this video.
According to Dr. Johnson, a stem cell is a single cell that can replicate itself or differentiate into many cell types. The embryo is actually composed of stem cells that end up becoming the tissues and organs in our bodies. Every time our body needs a new cell, it’s the stem cell’s role to do that. Their ability to self-renew is very important in the healing process of our bodies. As we age, we lose a good supply of stem cells and that is where fat stem cell therapy comes in. It harnesses the stem cell’s ability to self-multiply and deliver to a part of our body that doesn’t heal well.
