Healing Chemotherapy Damage with Stem Cells

Jul 28, 2017 05:50PM

For cancer patients, chemotherapy can be a double-edged sword. While the treatment is designed to kill cancer cells, it also harms healthy cells in the process. But chemotherapy damage can now be healed by using intravenous stem cell IV therapy.

Stem cells are “super” cells found naturally in the body that heal damaged areas. They’re extremely powerful because they can transform into whatever kind of cell the body needs and multiply without limit to build an army of healthy cells.

Stem cells can be harvested from the patient’s own body or via amniotic fluid. After they undergo chemotherapy, isolated stem cells are delivered back into the body via an IV, where they rush to heal damaged areas. In some cases, stem cells have even been found to kill cancer cells.

Also, stem cell IVs aren’t just beneficial for cancer patients, they have shown benefits for chronic pain, nerve damage, collagen production, anti-aging, joint mobility, autoimmune disorders and neurological disorders.
