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 US 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 also can result as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, atherosclerosis, and a host of other health conditions.
Inflammation is a double edge sword. When inflammation is kept in check, the body it deals with it appropriately and promotes healing. When inflammation is chronically sustained at high levels, it can create serious damage to 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. The primary purpose of stem cells is to maintain, heal and regenerate tissue wherever they are in your body. 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. Any time your body is exposed to any sort of toxin, the inflammatory process causes stem cells to quickly migrate to the area so they can repair the damage.
For those struggling with chronic degenerative conditions, your Stem Cell System is 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 Reversing 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 Stem Cell Therapy to reduce cascade of inflammation overwhelming the body. Stem cells are a powerful tool to address both degenerative conditions.
- 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
