Placenta shot

One of the most important factors of newborn development is the placenta, the 'sac' that protects and provides a liquid-filled home for a developing fetus. During pregnancy, the placenta serves as important protection, growth, development and nourishment (via the umbilical cord) of vital organs such as the lungs, liver, kidneys, immune system and digestive system while such organs are developing within the fetus itself. With new scientific technology, there has been a discovery of unique multipotent stem cells to be found within the placenta. Such cells found within placental tissues have been shown to treat such diseases as, among many others: Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, auto-immune disorders, stroke, lupus. muscular dystrophy and cerebral palsy.

While the stem cell controversy is still up for debate, many find that the use of placenta stem cells morally acceptable and ethical because the newborn babies no longer need them after birth. Placenta tissues and afterbirth have been discarded in the past. In addition, acquiring placental stem cells causes no harm to the fetus or embryo or mother. The placental stem cells are harvested after the baby is born via cesarean section so that the placenta does not receive contamination through a traditional birth.

Placenta stem cell treatments are uniquely determined based on medical need or condition. A physician will review the patient’s medical record and decide where to place the stem cells during a patient consultation. Determining where to put the stem cells is vital to offer the greatest impact on the patient’s condition and generate the best results as possible. Placenta stem cell therapy has been utilized for more than twenty years in Europe for treatment of multiple disease processes with promising results.

Undergoing stem cell therapy is ideal for anyone who suffers from numerous medical issues or ailments and has not seen results in other methodology treatment plans. Painless and effective, placental stem cell therapy has been shown to drastically improve many medical conditions. For those who might find the use of stem cells to be a debatable issue, many ethicists and physicians agree that placental stem cells are ethical since the newborn baby no longer needs it, and it is traditionally discarded after birth. Stem cells offer a renewable source of new cells for the body to replace and treat many medical issues such as those listed above.
