YOU PLAN FOR YOUR CHILD’S EDUCATION. PLAN FOR THEIR HEALTHCARE, TOO.
From teaching healthy eating habits to instilling strong values, you already do so much to prepare your child for a happy and healthy life. Banking stem cells may not be as obvious as saving for college, but it could mean just as much to your child’s future well-being and quality of life.
For decades, doctors have harnessed the unique ability of stem cells to treat cancer and genetic blood diseases using therapies such as a bone marrow transplants which is a type of stem cell therapy. Today, more than 1,700 clinical studies are under way, demonstrating the use of stem cells to treat diseases, to heal injuries, and to grow replacement tissues like tendons, muscles, and blood vessels.
This exploding field of research holds the promise that your child, utilizing a toolkit of their own stem cells, will live a life of unprecedented wellness extended by decades.
THE STEM CELL BASICS
Ordinary cells in your body replicate to make new cells of the same type - blood cells make more blood cells, skin cells make more skins cells and so on. However, there is another type of cell, called a stem cell. These are nature’s “master” cells, which can be “programmed” to regenerate a wide variety of cells and tissues.
Because stem cells can regenerate other types of body cells and tissues, stem cells have the ability to aid in healing. This is why scientists and doctors are so excited about the growing role of stem cells to treat disease, injury, and the deterioration of tissue due to aging. Amazingly, after our birth and into adulthood, we keep a store of these stem cells in certain parts of our body.
YOUNGER IS BETTER
The younger the stem cell, the more potent the stem cell. Freezing cells in a youthful state preserves their future ability to generate replacement tissue and heal the body. Younger cells divide more frequently, grow faster, and can turn into a greater variety of cell types. Why do you think a seven year old heals so much faster than a seventy year old?
All of these attributes make stem cells the cornerstone of the emerging field of treatments and therapies called Regenerative Medicine.
