What Are Autoimmune Diseases?

Autoimmune disease is a category representing more than 80 conditions. These conditions are highlighted by a person’s own immune system attacking healthy tissue. A healthy immune system defends against infection and disease, repairing the body and even preventing cancers. However, in autoimmune disease the immune system mistakes healthy tissue as “bad” and attacks it. This weakens the function of the tissue and can even turn life threatening.

Some well known autoimmune diseases are type 1 diabetes, multiple sclerosis (MS), lupus (SLE), rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), psoriasis, polyneuropathy, and Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. These are just a few of more common autoimmune conditions.

Autoimmune Disease Symptoms

Since autoimmune diseases can occur in separate areas of the body it is hard to list specific symptoms. An autoimmune condition like rheumatoid arthritis will have joint pain, while a condition like psoriasis will develop thick, scaly patches. Some autoimmune conditions, such as lupus, attack multiple parts of the body, so can have joint, skin, and organ symptoms. There’s typically not a “black and white” diagnoses.

Some commons symptoms seen are:


Joint Pain and Swelling

Skin Problems

Abdominal Pain or Digestive Issues

Recurring Fever

Swollen Glands

stem cell therapy for AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE

How It Works

Mesenchymal stem cells (aka medicinal signaling cells) are specialized cells in our body designed to improve the immune system and restore damaged tissue. Stem cell therapy with human umbilical cord tissue derived mesenchymal stem cells (UC-MSCs) corrects the inflammatory process by modulating the immune system from a pro-inflammatory attacking state to an anti-inflammatory healthy state. They also have the ability to regenerate damage done from the autoimmune attack. Stem cells do this by secreting healing activators such as growth factors, cytokines, and exosomes to the surrounding environment.

This therapy is the most highly sophisticated treatment for autoimmune disease management since it not only “manages” the pain and symptoms of autoimmune diseases but also heals and regenerates the tissue naturally. There’s an intricate process called the Th1 and Th2 immune response which is out of balance in autoimmune disease. Stem cell, aka medicinal signaling cells, signal the immune system to become balanced through an increase of Th3, Th17, and T-regulatory cells. This is just a small fraction of what’s going on when this amazing medicine is put in our body. For the technically minded patients, MSCs inhibit autoimmune innate immune activation by blocking dendritic cell maturation, suppressing macrophage activation, and producing IL-1 antagonist and IL10 which block antigen presentation and perpetuating autoimmunity. These are just some of the known mechanisms. Also, an increase in T-reg cells helps balance the immune system and keeps it out of a pro-inflammatory state.

How are autoimmune disease treated with stem cell therapy?

The best route of administration is chosen by your doctor and depends on the patient and condition. If there is any brain issues we also administer into the nasal sinus, called a sphenopalatine ganglia administration. In the back of the nasal cavity is a small bundle of nerves that delivers the stem cell medicine to the brain.

What are the advantages of using allogenic (not the patient’s own) umbilical cord tissue derived stem cells?

  • Umbilical cord tissue is one of the most abundant sources of stem cells, producing a greater number and quality of stem cells
  • Stem cells are immune privileged, meaning there is no rejection by our bodies when administered
  • Using UC-MSC means there’s no need for invasive procedures seen in bone-marrow or adipose derived stem cells. These methods also tend to produce inferior numbers and poorer quality of stem cells
  • There is evidence that UC-MSCs are a more viable source compared to other MSC sources. Meaning they perform better at what MSCs do naturally
  • UC-MSCs can be administered safely numerous times, each time adding more and more benefit. Unlike steroid injections which end up damaging your joints even more if administered to often

How is Innate Healthcare’s stem cell therapy protocols different from other clinics?

Our regenerative medicines come from the highest quality labs in the U.S. We follow our vast clinical experience and very well researched protocols from all over the world that achieve the best results. In addition, we treat using a very holistic, comprehensive approach. Some patient’s protocols may vary, as everyone is treated according to their unique presentation:

  • We treat with very high, and safe, doses.
  • Included with the treatment is other forms of healing, such as IV nutrients, and acupuncture, to facilitate the healing.
  • Herbal medicines, nutraceuticals, and nutritional guidelines are provided.
  • Patients are encouraged to return to the clinic for additional care during following months.

“My rheumatoid arthritis has seen significant improvements since starting. I’m almost completely off my medications. Been able to get off Prednisone and Orencia for months now. And lower my Methotrexate dose. At present, RA symptoms are not significant, I think normal aches for a 61 yr old who took too may rides in the box with the flashing red light on top. I think I’m on my way to being medication free.

What To Expect

How it works

Research on umbilical cord-derived mesenchymal stem cells (UC-MSCs) exhibit promising therapeutic potential for autoimmune conditions owing to their unique immunomodulatory properties. When introduced into the body, UC-MSCs have the capacity to interact with immune cells and modulate their activity, thereby regulating the immune response. These cells can suppress the overactive immune system seen in autoimmune disorders by releasing anti-inflammatory molecules and inhibiting the proliferation of immune cells.

Additionally, UC-MSCs have the ability to promote the generation of regulatory T cells, which play a crucial role in maintaining immune system balance. By exerting these immunomodulatory effects, UC-MSCs may help mitigate the aberrant immune responses that characterize autoimmune conditions, providing a novel therapeutic approach for disorders such as rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, and lupus.

We we love it

We love having cells and integrative medicine as an effective and safe option for autoimmune conditions. Many patients’ quality of life is crippled from their autoimmune conditions. Pharmacological approaches aren’t always effective and can have harsh side effects.

Another aspect contributing to the appeal of UC-MSCs is their relative ease of extraction and ethical considerations, as they are obtained from discarded umbilical cords without harm to the donor. The potential for reduced rejection in recipients and the ability to differentiate into various cell types further underscore the therapeutic promise of UC-MSCs for autoimmune conditions. As research progresses, the enthusiasm for these stem cells lies in their potential to revolutionize the treatment landscape for autoimmune disorders by addressing the root causes and promoting immune system harmony.
