What are Exosomes, and why are they useful?
Exosomes are extracellular vesicles – or small structures within a cell – released by stem cells in response to injuries. Generally speaking, Exosomes carry healthy and lost information and insert this to target cells. They act as shuttles for genetic information and proteins to other cells. Exosomes allow for cell-to-cell communication; they transport molecules that are important regulators of intracellular information between cells near and far. They carry information from place to place with different functions and purposes telling cells how and when to react.
What is Exosome Therapy
Regenerative Medicine research has given us valuable insight into the practical application and function of exosomes. By exposing the cells of an older organism to those of a younger organism we can see that exosomes from the young stem cells are responsible for rejuvenating the older cells. The ability to heal can be used in integrative therapies. We use neonatal exosomes to promote cellular healing.
Any continuous deterioration of cells that affects tissues and/or organs are classified as degenerative disease. Stem cells are typically responsible for the rejuvenation of cells. Sometimes, external factors hinder the stem cells from completing their function; they may not be able to supply all the information that is needed for healing.
We provide new information to support the healing process with exosomes. Supporting the stem cells with external exosomes have a greater positive effect in the process of healing the deteriorated tissue and organs.
Exosomes from stem cells contain valuable cell information consisting of proteins and genetic information the cell needs to function correctly. These stem cell derived Exosomes have also shown to assist in transferring NK cells (Killer cells) into T-Regulator cells (Helper cells) By that they assist in calming an over reactive immune system and modulating it to respond in a coordinated fashion.
Who May Benefit from Exosome Therapy?
Exosomes may help regulate processes within the body. Patients with chronic inflammation, autoimmune disease, Lyme disease and other chronic degenerative diseases may benefit from including exosome therapy in their treatment regimen.
Exosomes may also be beneficial as part of our Anti-Aging Therapy. Patients with degenerative joint disease have also experienced relief from the use of exosomes.
Exosomes & Lyme Disease
Lyme Disease is a very complex disease, caused by the Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria, which compromises the immune system. Tick-borne disease can also come with multiple co-infections. A combination of factors causes the onset of illness as immune system functions become disrupted leading to diminishing cellular health, immune function, metabolic function and dramatically increasing inflammation.
Many Lyme patients often have dysfunction of the mast cells, increasing their inflammatory response. Inflammation is a central player in most neurodegenerative diseases as well. Incorporating exosomes into a multi modality treatment regimen may help break the inflammatory cycle and provide the body with necessary cellular information to facilitate healing.
