Feeling sluggish and just not like your “normal” self? Or maybe you’re suffering through the debilitating symptoms of chronic disease with no hope for relief in sight? Instead of blaming it all on the process of aging and accepting life’s hard knocks, start the new year by exploring the many exciting, new treatment options available in regenerative medicine.
Therapies used in regenerative medicine support the body’s own ability to renew, replace or regenerate its cells, tissues or organs to restore “normal” function. Treating patients with a holistic approach, Dr. Dale Guyer, founder of The Guyer Institute of Molecular Medicine, uses various regenerative therapies to treat the underlying causes of a patient’s health condition and help them feel like themself again.
While some early successes of regenerative medicine, also known as cell therapy, include blood transfusions, bone marrow transplants and certain skin-grafting procedures for burn victims, Dr. Guyer helps clients restore their bodies with all-natural peptides, stem cells, platelet-rich plasma, and bioidentical hormone replacement therapies. Read on to learn more about the benefits of each:
Our bodies produce more than 70,000 kinds of peptides, which bind to other cells and molecules and give them targeted directions. By tapping into and tweaking the body’s own biochemistry, we can direct those peptides to heal or restore damaged cells to bring the body back into balance.
Without the side effects of traditional medications, peptides redefine how we dispense medicine. They do their job and then recycle with no build-up or toxic effect on the body. Peptides not only prolong life but increase the quality of it, with an approach to anti-aging that heals and restores the body by using its own chemistry.
Stem Cell Therapy
Stem cell therapy involves isolating adult stem cells from your body’s own abdominal fat, then reinjecting those cells back into the body for regeneration, restoration and repair of cells and tissues in specific areas. Stem cells contain very high levels of peptide growth factors, which signal the body’s cells to regenerate, grow and repair.
Dr. Guyer uses stem cell therapy to treat patients with osteoarthritis, chronic fatigue, pulmonary disease and various autoimmune disorders. Stem cell therapy also offers cosmetic benefits, helping to promote more elasticity and suppleness in the skin. It enhances your mood and energy levels, reduces joint and body aches, boosts your sexual vitality and health, and improves vital cardiovascular and immune systems.
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
PRP Therapy uses a patient’s own blood to create growth factors from the plasma, which we inject back into targeted sites around the body to promote and enhance the repair of connective tissues, thereby allowing the body to heal itself.
By isolating and using the body’s own growth factors, PRP Therapy offers hope to many patients, especially those suffering from long-standing musculoskeletal issues, traumatic injury or scarring. It also relieves joint pain and works amazingly well in nonsurgical cosmetic procedures to reduce sagging skin, fine lines and wrinkles.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
For our bodies to feel good and function optimally, all of our naturally occurring hormones need to operate in conjunction with each other to achieve proper balance. While some doctors use synthetic hormones to treat hormone imbalance, Dr. Guyer takes a more natural approach by only prescribing hormone treatments that are identical to what the body creates.
Patients experience fewer side effects with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy, as Dr. Guyer customizes the hormone levels to relieve each patient’s specific set of symptoms and adjusts as symptoms improve. Finally say goodbye to the mood swings, fatigue, weight gain and diminished sex drive that affect us all as we age!
