Stem Cell Therapy for Lyme Disease Is it Safe
What can you expect from Stem Cell Therapy for Lyme Disease?
Stem cell therapy can help the patient improve their quality of life by regenerating lost tissue or/and cells, slowing down the deterioration or stopping the disease. This is very important since the nature of a degenerative disease is to damage the organs or tissue to the point where they’re no longer functional. So, to stop or slow down a degeneration actually means more GOOD years for the patient than bad.
Stem Cell Therapy Patient Review Lyme Disease
Jason has Lyme Disease which is incurable and degenerative, this has caused him to experience chronic joint pain, nerve pain, and pain in his feet, amongst others. He tells us about his decision to come to GIOSTAR Mexico to get stem cell therapy for lyme disease:
Lyme Disease is an illness transmitted by a bite of a tick. When the tick latches on to the skin it releases the bacteria (Borrelia burgdorferi, Borrelia afzelii, or Borrelia garinii)infecting the host. It can affect both animals and humans, and the symptoms present themselves in a slow and gradual manner. If left untreated Lyme Disease can compromise movement to the point of being unable to walk. There is no cure for Lyme disease.
The first sign to look out for Lyme Disease is a swollen, tender and red ring area where the tick has bitten. sometimes the tick can still be attached to the skin. Over the next few days, the ring of redness can expand, it’s not painful or itchy but some people present fever, chills, headaches, muscle and joint pain and swollen lymph nodes.
The second sign of Lyme Disease can present in skin inflammation in other body areas, pain in large joints, palsy on part of the face or the whole face. Some patients develop meningitis causing headaches and neck pain.
Later signs can affect the patient to a great level, physical symptoms can compromise movement and can present random arthritis attacks, joint swelling and pain, neurological symptoms can present as shooting pains, numbness, and tingles on the extremities, short-term memory, trouble with cognition, vision, sensation, and fatigue.
Patients with Lyme Disease are usually given antibiotics which can have severe side effects while trying to attend the painful symptoms without being fully effective.
Can stem cells cure?
Stem cell therapy can help ease the symptoms of Lyme disease in a more effective way since stem cells have a natural disposition to regenerate lost tissue and cells and have no severe side effects helping the swelling and pain caused by Lyme disease.
Stem cell therapy for lyme disease helps the swelling in the joints of the major joints such as the knees, shoulders, hips, and ankles or elbows. If the patient has developed arthritis GIOSTAR's Stem Cell Therapy can help repopulate the damaged parts of the joints, through the cells' strong paracrine effects and differentiate into lost or damaged cells of the cartilage, bones and muscles and create new blood vessels to improve the supply of blood or help in production of supporting cells to improve the function of the vascular system helping ease the pain. For the neurological symptoms, stem cell therapy can help meningitis and palsy through the regeneration of brain cells.
Stem Cell Therapy in Mexico
Is stem cell therapy safe and legal in Mexico?
An important question our patients ask before coming to our clinics is: Is stem cell therapy safe? We also understand that, perhaps, the real question is: Is stem cell therapy legal in Mexico? Yes and of course! In Giostar Mexico, we ask for each applicant to submit a health history form, from which our medical directors personally evaluate the viability of each applicant. This means that stem cell therapy may not be for everyone. Important: we currently do not treat macular degeneration and patients with cancer.
Stem cell therapy is thoroughly regulated by the Mexican FDA-equivalent: COFEPRIS. Due to advanced legislation, Mexico enjoys sufficient regulatory framework to offer applications otherwise unavailable in countries such as the US or Canada, for example: local direct applications (hands for arthritis, shoulder pain, knee pain), lumbar and cervical applications, all which have proven better results for patients, than just receiving stem cell therapy intravenously.
Stem cell therapy cost of Lyme Disease
Stem cell therapy cost for Lyme Disease, starts at $8,500.00 USD for one application (half-treatment). Pricing highly depends on the personalized protocol that the Medical Director determines based on each patient's condition. What may this include?
- Transportation from hotel-clinic, clinic-hotel and airport-hotel as well as hotel-airport (mainly for our Clinics in Playa del Carmen and Guadalajara; our Clinic in Los Algodones, due to its proximity to the US-Mexico border crossing, we pick up patients on the border or at Yuma Airport and take them to our clinic or their hotel)
- Lodging (available in our Clinic in Algodones) in Hotel Hacienda or Hotel Cielito Lindo
- Hyperbaric chamber (Los Algodones Clinic) or oxygen therapy (Playa del Carmen and Guadalajara)
- Body preparation – Nutritional IV Therapy
- 1 - 10 billion exosomes (volume depends on Doctor's personal evaluation of each patient)
- 1 - 4 vials (35 - 140 million stem cells)
- Laboratory protocol by Dr. Anand (activation of the stem cells in order to direct them towards the affected tissue or organ)
- Medical Consultation
- Dietitian Follow up post-therapy
- Preferential discount for future reinforcements/applications
- Laboratory exams the previous day before the first application
Financial Option for Stem Cell Therapy
Giostar Mexico is continuously looking to provide our patients with resources and options to receive stem cell therapy at the best stem cell clinics in Mexico. We are happy to announce that, through United Medical Credit, our patients (exclusive for US citizens) may now receive up to $25,000.00 USD in credit for their treatment (note: price for therapy varies depending on the condition to be treated and a number of stem cells [vials] included). Patients can ask for the maximum amount of the credit or ask for a percentage based on the price of the therapy.
Stem cell therapy is a procedure in the regenerative medicine field. Regenerative medicine's ultimate goal is that our body regenerate itself. What stem cell therapy does in your body is slow down or stop the suffered deterioration and it can even regenerate damaged tissue and organs. That is why we ask our patients to fill out health form, so our medical staff may first identify if stem cell therapy is actually an option for them, as well as allow our medical team to understand each patient's specific health conditions.
