What is stem cell therapy?
Stem cell therapy is a form of regenerative medicine that uses our body’s natural self-healing mechanisms in order to slow down, stop and regenerate (this is the essence of regenerative medicine) damage on our tissues and organs done by disease or injury. We all have stem cells in our body; however, due to aging, disease and a weaken immune system, our ability to heal is sometimes diminished or completely overrun. Stem cell therapy helps our immune system to recover its balance (immunomodulation), which in turn supports regeneration efforts.
Imagine a city under siege. This is a patient’s body under attack by a disease or condition. The people inside the city are the organs, immune system and various cells that work to combat/rebuild the damage done. Stem Cell Therapy works in three stages: first, it stops the siege (damage/attack to the body); second, it provides the building materials for rebuilding; last, it tells the citizens (organs, immune system and cells) how to use the building materials.
Patients can expect different results even if they have the same condition, because each body reacts differently to stem cell therapy. Like most situations and experiences in life, everyone reacts in their own way. However, common side effects that patients may present are: excess of energy, increased general wellbeing, ease or difficulty to sleep, headaches and soreness.
Is stem cell therapy safe?
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.

What to expect from Cancun Riviera
Cancun Riviera is located in the Yucatan Peninsula, it is a beautiful small town with lots of tourists all year long. The advantage of coming to this paradisiac destination is that there are 100+ direct (non-stop) flights from the U.S. and Canada to the Cancun International Airport (CUN)
The incredible and warm weather year-round attracts tourists from all over the world so English has become a common language in the city. Most people on the Cancun Riviera speak English and Spanish, and maybe even some other languages.
The local currency is the Mexican Peso but the US Dollars is widely accepted all around the Cancun Riviera, there are many ATMs in the hotel, and around Cancun Riviera, there are US dollars and Peso ATM's as well as several that offer the choice of both.
