Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) is a chronic, progressive autoimmune disease that causes pain and inflammation in the joints and surrounding tissue. More than 1.3 million Americans suffer from rheumatoid arthritis and around 75% of those affected are women.
If a person has RA, their immune system issues a response to various parts of the joint. This causes the patient’s own immune system to destroy healthy joint cells, causing pain and inflammation within the joint. Long term, RA can lead to complications such as kidney and heart damage. Whilst the causes of RA remain unknown, our increased understanding of how the condition works and the damage it causes has made us better able to treat the condition.
Treating Rheumatoid Arthritis
Typically, RA is treated with immune suppressant drugs. Whilst this treatment approach can have short term benefits for rheumatoid arthritis sufferers, long term it can cause adverse effects because the drugs affect all of the individual’s immune system, not just the areas affected by the RA. Current RA treatment approaches address existing pain and inflammation, even preventing or slowing further damage. However, they do not address the damage that has already been caused by the disease.
Stem cell application is proven to heal all forms of arthritis, including osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis. Stem cells have the ability to home in on damaged sites within the body, producing anti-inflammatory agents to reduce inflammation, repair existing damage and help to prevent future damage within the joints and surrounding tissue. These stem cells also promote the production of T regulatory cells, which help to protect the body from being attacked by its own immune system. Whilst conventional rheumatoid arthritis treatment approaches affect the individual’s whole immune system, stem cell application for RA affects only localized, affected areas without adverse side effects on other elements of the patient’s health.
Whilst stem cells are being heralded as the “treatment of the future” in America, with various trials demonstrating their remarkable ability to heal a range of conditions, at Stem Cell Mexico we offer our patients the healing potential of stem cells today. Respected in the medical world we are a BioHeart Stem Cell Center of Excellence, contributing to best practice in stem cell application and conduction life-changing stem cell application to patients who would otherwise have little or no chance of improving their prognosis.
