The power of stem cells to heal in Regenerative Medicine does not reside in their ability to grow into new tissue. Although the use of Mesenchymal Stem Cells can include the regrowth of injured tissues, the vast amount of their healing lies in their ability to “reprogram” injured areas. This reprograming process therefore restores the perfect balance of chemistry that precipitates the miracle of healing. Our bodies are amazing, however, far from perfect. When we experience injuries our bodies send healing cells including stem cells and other repair type cells to the site of injury. These cells as well as Platelets from our blood cause a chemical reaction known as inflammation. Inflammation “stirs” up cells, causing them to become more active, opening DNA sequences and generating new tissue. However, when injuries are severe enough, through either trauma or aging, the body “short circuits” from inflammation sitting and brewing. Likewise, this disrupts the natural process causing the healing response to go haywire. As a result, even more damage is caused by continual inflammation being sent to an injury with little healing taking place which eats away at healthy tissue and worsens the injury. Mesenchymal Stem Cells are the master repair cell, the master immune cell of the body. Consequently, when they enter chronically inflamed areas, they get right to work, above all else, restoring the delicate biochemistry that is absolutely necessary for the miracle of healing to unfold.
