Stem Cell for Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Table of Contents
Stem cell therapy has emerged as a dynamic field of research with the focus to revolutionize medical treatments for a wide range of conditions. One such condition that has garnered attention is Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), a gastrointestinal disorder that affects millions of people worldwide. IBS is known for its debilitating symptoms, including abdominal pain, bloating, and irregular bowel habits, which can significantly impact an individual's quality of life. In this blog post, we will delve into the world of stem cell therapy and its application in the treatment of Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
What is Irritable Bowel Syndrome?
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) is a common gastrointestinal disorder that affects the large intestine. It is characterized by a group of symptoms, including abdominal pain, bloating, constipation, and/or diarrhea. Individuals with IBS may experience these symptoms intermittently, with varying severity and duration.
The exact cause of IBS is unknown, but it is believed to result from a combination of factors, such as abnormal muscle contractions in the intestine, heightened sensitivity to certain stimuli, changes in the gut microbiome, and abnormalities in the way the nervous system communicates with the digestive system. While IBS does not cause permanent damage to the intestines or increase the risk of developing other serious conditions, it can significantly impact a person's quality of life.
What are Stem Cells?
Stem cells are a type of undifferentiated cell that have the remarkable ability to differentiate into various specialized cell types in the body. This ability, known as pluripotency, allows stem cells to develop into any cell type found in the body. The unique properties of stem cells make them essential in the development and growth of organisms, as well as in the maintenance and repair of damaged tissues.
One type of stem cell that has gained a lot of attention in recent years is mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). MSCs are multipotent stem cells that can differentiate into a variety of cell types, including bone, cartilage, and fat cells. They are also known to have immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory properties, making them a fundamental tool in regenerative medicine and tissue engineering. MSCs can be obtained from various sources, such as bone marrow, adipose tissue, and umbilical cord tissue.
Stem Cell Therapy for Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Stem cell therapy has emerged as a treatment option for various medical conditions, including Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS). The use of stem cells aims to promote tissue regeneration and repair in the intestine, alleviating the symptoms associated with IBS.
How much does stem cell therapy cost?
The cost of Stem Cell Therapy needs to be determined by our expert medical team, as prices depend on the specific condition and personalized medical recommendations. Our dedicated team of medical professionals carefully evaluates each patient's unique health situation to recommend the most effective therapy. Stem Cell Therapy includes the following:
- Laboratory protocol by Dr. Anand (activation of the stem cells to direct them towards the affected tissue or organ)
- 1 - 3 stem cell vials (35 - 105 million stem cells)
- 1 - 10 billion exosomes (volume depends on the doctor's personal evaluation of each patient)
- Oxygen Therapy
- Body preparation
- Medical Consultation
- Dietitian Follow-up post-therapy
- Transportation hotel-clinic in local shuttle
- Lodging (available in our Clinic in Algodones) at Hotel Hacienda or Hotel Cielito Lindo
- Preferential prices for future reinforcements/applications
If you are interested in receiving the benefits of stem cell therapy, you can fill out this contact form and we will give you a call or email you as soon as possible. You can also contact us directly to our US landline 619-866-6000.
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).
Giostar Stem Cell Therapy
Being part of the last three decades of innovative discoveries in the research-based area of regenerative medicine, Stem Cell Therapy promotes the reduction and stoppage of degenerative diseases or conditions, such as ALS, physical injuries and aging, bolstering the regeneration of damaged tissues, bodily processes and overall well-being.
Giostar Mexico specializes in medical tourism, receiving patients from all over the world. With the acquired understanding based on scientific research, we are able to provide personalized protocols to each patient. Through specialized allogenic mesenchymal adult stem cells, our regenerative therapy concentrates stem cells in the targeted area, organ or immune system, helping the body stop the progression of a disease or condition and begin regeneration.
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.
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 of which have proven better results for patients, than just receiving stem cell therapy intravenously.
Why Choose GIOSTAR Mexico?
GIOSTAR Mexico offers personalized therapy for different diseases. As each patient is different, here at GIOSTAR Mexico we develop personalized protocols for each one of them, although they may suffer from the same condition they are not the same. This is because genetics and other circumstances can affect differently how they respond to therapy.
It’s of utmost importance that you answer our health history form, this will determine two major factors:
- Your eligibility for therapy
- Your personalized protocol is developed according to your needs.
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 regenerates 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 condition.
