The human body contains some four trillion cells, all of which arise after conception from one unified cell through multiple cycles of division. This process of cellular renewal continues throughout life, as old and weak cells are replaced by new ones. In healthy young individuals the division of cells takes place regularly in an energetic and balanced bio-terrain. However, as we grow older, this process begins to slow down. Improper nutrition with large amounts of animal fat, processed sugars, food additives, a decrease in consumption of biologically grown vegetables, life styles with heavy smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, an overall increase in stress due to our fast-paced lives, pollution with carcinogenic solvents, heavy metals and pesticides tend to suppress this renewal process even more. As a result, we tend to age prematurely and can fall ill with chronic degenerative diseases or even cancer.
Cell therapy offers an opportunity to treat many degenerative diseases caused by premature cell death or malfunction of specific cell types and the body's failure to replace or restore them. At present, complete recovery from organ malfunction or failure requires transplant surgery. In most cases, incurable degenerative diseases are normally treated by alleviating symptoms, or delaying an onset of further degeneration.
In cellular therapy, cells or extracts of foetal tissue are administered via intramuscular injection into the human body for therapeutic purposes. These cells are then broken down into their basic elements (enzymes, polypeptides, deoxyribonucleic acids, ribonucleic acids and other basic organic substances) and reused by the cells, tissues and organs of the person treated. The fundamental theory behind organ extract and cell therapy is the principle 'Similia Similibus' or 'Like Cures Like' ,as stated by Paracelsus, a Swiss physician and philosopher of the 16th century.Paracelsus and many other early physicians believed that the best way to rebuild or revitalise ill organs or ageing tissue was to use healthy living cells of the same tissue type. Modern organ extract and cell therapy refers to treatment by injection with cellular elements and whole cells from healthy unborn or foetal sheep or calves specially bred for medical purposes under a controlled environment.
Cell therapy aims to awaken dormant cells within the human body, thereby stimulating the growth and function of existing tissue and repairing or regenerating old and malfunctioning cells. Cellular therapy offers what vitamins, minerals and other conventional or natural treatments cannot. It can provide the exact components necessary for injured or diseased tissue to heal and regenerate. While most pharmaceutical drugs work by suppressing certain symptoms over a short period of time and only for as long as they are taken, cell therapy stimulates the body's own healing and revitalising powers and exerts a long term effect.
