What is Wellness Package?
Wellness refers to the harmony and balanced state of the body and mind. Aging is a natural process when the number of cells dying each day starts to outweigh the new cells being created within the body. Inside the body, wellness or the well-being of a person depends on the formation of the cells which originates from stem cells. Aging can be slowed or reversed by the stem cells. However, stem cells are often affected by diseases, illnesses, environmental factors such as smoking and heavy drink, lack of exercise, undernourishment, as well as mental depression.
Wellness Package at our affiliated clinic is a selected stem cell therapy which helps to deal with aging skin and body condition, as well as boosting the immune system.
What Are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are non-specific and do not appear in any tissue-specific structure. Their main and the most impressive function is that they can easily replicate themselves to form specific cells and perform specific functions such as nerve cells, and heart muscle cells, etc. Research shows that stem cells can slow down the progress of some diseases by replicating the specific healthy cells to replace the damaged cells in the body. Also, stem cells can be cultured under laboratory conditions outside the body and later transplanted into the defective area of the organ to regain the functions. With this unique property, stem cells are then known as an effective treatment for anti-aging.
Stem Cells At Our Affiliated Clinic
There are many types of stem cells available; at our affiliated clinic, human mesenchymal stem cell is selected for the treatment. Mesenchymal stem cells, or MSC, has a high regeneration property which is able to change into various important cells inside the body such as heart muscle cells, cartilage, fat cells, nerve cells, etc. to treat several diseases.
MSCs are currently widely researched in clinical studies and have been extensively studied in patients with various severe body conditions. Other than having the greatest ability to turn into other tissue types including the nerves, the heart muscles, blood vessels, cartilage, bone, collagen-producing cells, fat tissue, insulin-producing cells, kidney cells, liver cells, and skin, MSCs are immunopriviledged; this means that they will not be killed by the host immune defense cells and neither will they cause a reaction. They carry a host of growth factors and hormones that aid host cells to rejuvenate and recharge. Hence, MSCs are identified to function in both replenishing stem cells and reviving any dwindling stem cells in the host.
The information on the benefits of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) is widely available. In summary, treatment with MSCs results in a reduction of organ damage, restoration of function, improvement in total well-being, and greater energy; these effects have been noted in varying degree with patients with severe conditions, for instance, heart failures, major heart attacks, strokes, and other neurodegenerative diseases, head and spinal cord injuries, musculoskeletal disease and injuries, autoimmune diseases, and diabetes.
How It Works
Mesenchymal stem cells are handled from the beginning to the end by specially trained and experienced scientists, ensuring that the cells were properly labelled, transported, isolated, and expanded in a professional and sterile manner.
Before the release of stem cells to your body, our affiliated clinic will perform several tests to ensure that the stem cells are free from infectious diseases. The tests included are RPR (VDRL), HIV 1&2 Antibody, Hepatitis B surface Antigen (HbsAg), Hepatitis C Antibody (Total) - Anti-HCV, Cytomegalovirus IgM Antibody, HTLV 1&2 Antibody, and HIV p24 Antigen.
The most modern method of stem cell production is used in our affiliated clinic to produce good and viable stem cells. For the expanded stem cells, they are sent to test for bacterial culture, fungal culture, and mycoplasma before using in the treatment.
The stem cells will be stored in an extremely cold condition until the date of your treatment arranged. On the treatment day, the stem cells will first be thawed and washed before infusing them into your body.
