Multiple sclerosis (MS) affects nerves in the brain and spinal cord, causing a wide range of symptoms including problems with muscle movement, balance and vision. There is currently no cure for MS, but there are a number of treatments that can help.
Since there is currently no cure for MS, a number of treatments have been used in treatment, which may include MS medications, deep brain stimulation, plasma exchange, Botox, physical therapy and steroids. Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat can help patients with Multiple sclerosis (MS) since our procedure can repair and regenerate nerves of the entire body including those in the brain and spinal cord.
Crohn’s disease inflammation affects the entire digestive tract and in ulcerative colitis only the large intestine is affected. In both illnesses there is an abnormal response to the body’s immune system.
Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with IBD since they can help decrease inflammation and relieve symptoms that patients endure.
Type I diabetes happens when your immune system destroys cells in your pancreas called beta cells. Beta cells make insulin which is a hormone that helps move sugar, or glucose, into our body’s tissues which we use as fuel. Dynamic Stem Cell therapy can help those patients afflicted with Type I diabetes because Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help to regenerate beta cells in the pancreas.
Myasthenia Gravis is chronic condition of muscles weakening. People with this condition improve with rest.
Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with Myasthenia Gravis since they can help regenerate muscle cells in need. This procedure may help with energy and remission of symptoms for patients living with Myasthenia Gravis.
Vasculitis is an inflammation of blood vessels, which includes the veins, arteries, and capillaries. Inflammation in Vasculitis is thought to occur due to infection or a faulty immune system response.
Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with Vasculitis since they can help decrease inflammation, fight infection by turning into white blood cells, or possibly to fix the faulty immune system and correct its’ response.
Certain blood Cancers such as
Oxford Dictionaries defines Leukemia as “a malignant progressive disease in which the bone marrow and other blood-forming organs produce increased numbers of immature or abnormal leukocytes. These suppress the production of normal blood cells, leading to anemia and other symptoms.” Source: Oxford Dictionaries
Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with Leukemia since they can regenerate and rejuvenate white blood cells increasing the body’s ability to fight disease.
Degenerative Eye Disease
Macular Degeneration is the leading cause of vision loss, affecting more than 10 million Americans – more than cataracts and glaucoma combined, according to www.macular.org. Considered to be an incurable eye disease, Macular degeneration is caused due to the deterioration of the central portion of the retina or macula. The macula is the back layer inside of the eye that records the images we see and sends them via the optic nerve from the eye to the brain. The macula is responsible for focusing central vision. Without a proper functioning macula patients have trouble being able to read, recognize faces or colors, see fine detail in objects, or even to drive a car. Deterioration of the macula come in 2 basic types; “dry (atrophic)” which is more common, appearing in 85%-90% of all cases, and “wet (exudative)” which is less common, only occurring in 10%-15% of all patients suffering from Macular degeneration.
Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with Macular degeneration since they can regenerate cells of the central portion of the retina.
Other Metabolic Disorders
Osteoporosis is a medical condition characterized by a degeneration of bones making them brittle and more fragile from loss of tissue. Osteoporosis occurs typically in older patients as a result of hormonal changes or deficiency of calcium or vitamin D.
Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with Osteoporosis since they can regenerate and rejuvenate bone and tissue.
Liver disease or any disorder of the liver involves the largest organ in the upper right quadrant of the abdomen. The liver, which aids in digestion and removal of waste products from the blood is extremely important for the body to function correctly.
Examples of conditions patients with liver disease have are; Cirrhosis, or scarring of the liver, as well as other conditions including Hepatitis stemming from inflammation, hepatitis B and hepatitis C stemming from infection, or even non-infectious causes such as chemical or autoimmune hepatitis. Also, Tumors both benign and malignant are also known to cause liver cancer. Metabolic disorders can cause liver disease. As well as alcohol abuse, Infections, poisons, inherited (genetic) conditions can also cause diseases of the liver. A multitude of other different functions of the liver are impaired in most patients with liver disease.
Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with Liver Disease since they can regenerate and rejuvenate hepatic (liver) cells.
Lyme Disease (under subheading other metabolic conditions)
This deer tick borne illness leaves devastating reprucautions for those that have gotten a delayed diagnosis, or even those still living undiagnosed. Patients are generally very healthy and have great coping mechanisms in place. Nutritionally they have in their own words tried it all. Patients with Lyme have been known to participate in collaborative alternative natural immunotherapies as well. Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients living with Lyme disease and its symptoms since these new healthy cells may be able to recruit native cells with specialized functions to help regenerate and rejuvenate injury as well as help to decrease global internal inflammation. This could lessen pain and symptoms associated with Lyme disease. In theory these cells once purified, isolated and re infused could very well help these patients regain an increased quality of life.
Cardiomyopathy refers to diseases of the heart muscle. These diseases have a variety of causes, symptoms, and treatments. Cardiomyopathy is the thickening and/or enlarging of the heart muscle. Scar tissue forms on the heart, which weakens it. This weakening of the heart decreases its ability to pump blood throughout the body and maintain a normal electrical rhythm. This can lead to heart failure, arrhythmia and other serious complications such as heart valve problems. Heart failure can cause fluid to build up in the lungs, abdomen or lower extremities like the legs, ankles and feet.
Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with Cardiomyopathy since they can rejuvenate heart muscle to a healthier state.
Cardiologists are recognizing the therapeutic applications of regenerative cells to repair and regenerate damaged tissues as it relates to the cardiothoracic system. It is in this field that the largest amount of published data is available, and current research suggests these new, progressive non-surgical techniques hold significant promise for repair tissue.
The human cell contains bioactive proteins capable of accelerating soft tissue healing and the development and possible repair of blood vessels and can promote growth of epithelial tissue and stimulate more rapid healing.

Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with Parkinson’s disease since they can regenerate neurons and rejuvenate dopamine levels in the body.
Premature senility is the cause of Dementia and 60%-70% of all cases turn out to be Alzheimer’s. This generalized degeneration of the brain may be helped with the regenerative power of autologous stem cells rejuvenating patient brain cells in patients with Alzheimer’s disease.
The spinal cord is a major bundle of tightly compacted nerves contained within the vertebral column that carry nerve impulses to and from the brain. The spinal cord and the brain constitute the central nervous system. In SCI spinal cord severing does not have to take place for a loss of function to occur. In most patients that have SCI, the spinal cord is still intact, but damage to cells results from compression or inflammation. This compression or inflammation that occurs results in patients losing function. An SCI is very different from back injuries such as pinched nerves, ruptured disks or spinal stenosis. These other back injuries involve musculoskeletal and peripheral nerve changes where as a spinal cord injury involves damage to the central nervous system.
Autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own body fat may help patients with Spinal Cord Injuries (SCI) since they can regenerate nerve cells needed to decrease inflammation and decompress damaged spinal cords
It is very important for the preservation and normal function of the joints. In the knee, cartilage is responsible for providing a smooth protective layer covering the femur, tibia and the patella undersurface, as well as serving as a shock absorber for the knee. Cartilage does not have its own blood supply so it does not have the natural ability to heal itself after damage from a sports injury, work injury or a traumatic event. If left untreated, a knee cartilage injury can cause deterioration in the joint leading to osteoarthritis and other degenerative disorders.
Emergency medicine doctor and trauma medicine specialist, Dr. Dale Carrison now offers stem cell therapy for selected patients with shoulder arthritis and injuries to manage painful symptoms associated with early to moderate shoulder arthritis and degenerative conditions that cause pain for patients. We also treat traumatic injuries relating to sports or other issues.
Complex tissue repair and replacement have proliferated in Orthopedics / Sports Medicine / Prolotherapy, eclipsing the historic emphasis on mechanical and metallic implants. A new era of orthopedic therapies encompass techniques and principles using cellular and molecular based strategies. Clinical data suggests using autologous cell composites provides a vast range of therapeutic applications that repair and regenerate many types of musculoskeletal tissue. Researchers assert the bioactive proteins within cells initiate soft and hard tissue healing, including bone, tendon, cartilage and ligament regeneration and repair.
Additional data suggests these bioactive proteins develop new vascular and epithelial tissue and stimulate the physiological process of wound healing. Stem Cell Optimization in their cosmetic use and in the field of sports medicine in otherwise healthy individuals are cutting edge avenues that we treat here at Dynamic Stem Cell Therapy.
