THE BODY’S OWN REPAIR KIT
Stem cells are precursor cells that are a basic substance of life.
During the course of their development stem cells differentiate into different cell types and thus into different organs. The designation “pluripotent adult stem cell” is given to a special type of cell that is found in most tissue and whose future type is not yet defined. These stem cells can be “programmed” by the surrounding tissue into any type of cell – from heart tissue to spinal cord nerve cells to entire organs. These adult stem cells are found in great numbers in the skin.
There they are most easily accessible for harvesting. Stem cells serve to replace old and dead cells to ensure renewed function of the cell groups or organs. Using the body’s own stem cells eliminates rejection reactions that often occur with exogenous substances.
For the body can best tolerate its own cells. We use the body’s own stem cells for treating various diseases and generally for prevention.
