Getting to the Root of Degeneration
Degenerative disease is the result of a continuous inflammatory process that affects cells, tissues or organs. Degenerative conditions are those that have a tendency to worsen over time. We all get older and tissues age, but degeneration is a process by which the cells, tissues or organs break down and age faster than they should. Degeneration impacts everyone differently.
Marketing companies typically convey the message that aging and degenerative conditions are the same thing, but they are not! Getting older is normal and with that comes aging of tissues. Degeneration is the accelerated deterioration and loss of function in cells and tissues, inappropriate for age (time). Degenerative disorders in the U.S. are skyrocketing with trillions of dollars spent each year to “manage” the signs and symptoms, however, in most cases the root cause is never addressed.
What drives Degeneration in the Body?
The biggest driver of premature degeneration of the cells, tissues and organs of the body is inflammation. Chronic inflammation is associated with a broad spectrum of neurodegenerative diseases of aging. Alzheimer’s Disease (AD), Parkinson’s Disease (PD), Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) are just a few. Degeneration can also present itself as joint pain, arthritis, peripheral neuropathy, cardiovascular disease, and a host of other health conditions.
Inflammation is a double edge sword. When inflammation is kept in check, the body deals with it appropriately and promotes healing. When inflammation is chronically sustained at high levels, it can create serious damage to the cells & tissues of the body.
What can be Done to Repair Degeneration?
Your body has a system to control and manage inflammatory driven degeneration. It’s called your Stem Cell system. However, in the event of injury, the body relies upon more that just a stem cell. It needs the complex combination of many cells and proteins to help start or aid the regenerative process and get you back up to speed. Any time your body is exposed to any sort of toxin, the inflammatory process causes stem cells and other healing growth factors to quickly migrate to the area so they can repair the damage. This is a continuous process that occurs inside your body throughout your life. If you didn’t have stem cells, your lifespan would be about an hour, because there would be nothing to replace exhausted cells or damaged tissue. The primary purpose of Regenerative Cell Therapy is to replenish what the body needs, where the body needs it.
For those struggling with chronic degenerative conditions, your Stem Cell system may be overwhelmed and overworked. This is typically due to chronic inflammation and toxicity resulting from a myriad of stressors on the body including diet & lifestyle factors.
At Rejuvagen, instead of managing the signs and symptoms of degenerative conditions, we focus on addressing the root cause of chronic inflammation.
Rejuvagen Takes a Multi-Faceted Approach to Improving Degenerative Conditions
- We utilize a thorough health evaluation and functional lab testing to determine the underlying cause or causes, whether physical, chemical, emotional, or microbial of the chronic inflammation and pain.
- We use Regenerative Cell Therapy, where appropriate, to reduce the cascade of inflammation. Cell Therapy can help the body repair, replace, cushion, support and function at optimal levels.
- As the inflammatory cascade naturally calms, we continue to support the patient with recommended diet and lifestyle modifications and nutraceutical support to restore cellular function, address micronutrient deficiencies and improve overall health and quality of life.
