What is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine may be defined as the process of replacing or “regenerating” human cells, tissues or organs to restore or establish normal function. This field holds the promise of regenerating damaged tissues and organs in the body by stimulating the body’s own repair mechanisms to heal tissues or organs. Regenerative medicine also may enable scientists to grow tissues and organs in the laboratory and safely implant them when the body is unable to heal itself. Current estimates indicate that approximately one in three Americans could potentially benefit from regenerative medicine. Most people may associate Regenerative medicine with stem cells. However, Regenerative medicine is much more. The study of stem cells has advanced to new methodologies that no longer present some of the earlier moral, ethical or religious concerns that confronted the field. Also, Regenerative medicine is made up of many elements. Natural elements that are known as “biologicals”.
We have found that you can get regenerative effects even without the introduction of stem cells from another site or donor. This is because the human body is loaded with stem cells and progenitor cells (partially complete cells). The number of stem cells in each person remains high throughout their life. For instance, the average adult has 35 trillion cells in their bodies, and the average 70-year-old has an estimated one stem cell for every 2 million of those cells. In this example the average adult has 17.5 million stem cells. It is the other ingredients that make the body try and regenerate or repair damaged cells. These are the elements that form the matrix of StimulEyes. That matrix is comprised of hyaluronic acid for lubrication, protein cytokines for possible inflammation reduction, and growth factors for potential cell repair. All of those together form the miraculous work that is seen with Regenerative medicine.
