What Are Stem Cells?

Like most cells, Stem Cells are able to replicate, however, they also have the incredible ability to become any cell type needed to repair damaged tissue. Many scientists describe them as our body’s “internal repair system” because of their potential to become other cells, such as muscle, ligament, nerve, cartilage, brain or red blood cells.

What is Stem Cell Therapy?

Stem cell treatment is the administration of umbilical cord stem cells (UCSC) into a patient’s body based on the recommendation from your medical provider or nurse practitioner. The cells can be administered through injection or IV infusion to maximize the therapy’s reach.

Where do Stem Cells Come From?

Umbilical Cord Stem Cells are derived exclusively from the umbilical cord tissue of healthy birthed babies & healthy mothers, which is the safest and least-invasive method of extraction available.

What Do Stem Cells Do?

Seek out degeneration

They build, repair, and grow new tissue.


They are effective in reducing inflammation.


They help modulate the body’s immune responses.

What Makes Them Special?


A pluripotent cell has the capability of developing into various types of cells or tissues.


Umbilical cord stem cells replicate themselves every 28 hours for 65 generations, giving rise to millions of undifferentiated cells.

  • Stem cells are immune system privileged, so there is no chance of rejection and anyone can be treated.
  • Stem cells reduce inflammation, help to control the immune response, and stimulate regeneration in tissue.
  • Stem cells can be administered in multiple areas of the body with a consistent dosage of high cells counts.
  • Stem cells can be administered two ways: by a direct injection into the joint or through an intravenous (IV) infusion.

The Procedure

1. Before the Therapy

If possible, stop or reduce all aspirin products, non-steroidals, Vitamin E supplementation, and the use of fish oil at least five days before the therapy. Be sure to stay hydrated prior to the procedure.

2. The Therapy

The duration of the therapy is short, simple, and can take between ten minutes to an hour depending on the amount administered and the procedure chosen.

This time will include cleaning, prepping, the stem cell injection, post therapy instructions, and possible IV therapy.

3. After the Therapy

If possible, stop or reduce anti-inflammatory medication for at least one to two weeks. Remember: Stem cells replicate every 28 hours through 65 cycles of replication.

Immediate Post-Therapy: Light exercises and stretching; no high-impact activities

One Month Post-Therapy: Aggressive stretching, light-weight training; as tolerated by joints

Second Month-Post Therapy: Increase workout regimen and sport-specific activities

Is it safe? And why?


The cells are rigorously tested and screened under NIH, FDA, AATB, and AABB guidelines.

Because Umbilical Cord Stem Cells are less mature than other cells, the body’s immune system is unable to recognize them as foreign and therefore, they are not rejected. There has never been a documented instance of rejection in graft vs. host. Could stem cell regeneration help you recover?
