Understanding The Basics Of Stem Cells

Many of us have heard of the great advances that are taking place in the field of medicine, and one such area where a large amount of progress has been seen is in stem cell research.

Stem cell research is currently being used to find new cures for conditions such as cancer, Parkinson's disease, and Alzheimer's disease, to name but a few. Their role in the discovery of new drugs is invaluable. Now, Aspen has evolved the use of stem cell therapy to treat everyone naturally.

But what exactly are these cells? Here we take a look at some of the basic aspects of these wonderful cells.

What are stem cells?

Stem cells are the most basic of cells in the body. They are the source of all other cells in various organs present in our body.

The primary role of the cells is to divide into a number of daughter cells, that then go on to undergo a process of 'differentiation' leading to the formation of structures such as the heart, brain, spleen, kidneys, eyes, liver etc.

This property of the stem cells makes them totally unique. Think of it like a stem of a plant that branches out with leaves.

Where do they come from?

Scientists often harvest cells from different tissues in the body.

The most common source is the human embryo. Stem cells can be extracted when the embryo is just 3 to 5 days old (these embryos are from donated eggs, not from a growing fetus)!

At this stage, the cells can become anything they want to become, making their role in research invaluable. They can also be derived from adult tissues such as the fat and bone marrow. In addition, they can be derived from the umbilical cord blood and even from the amniotic fluid. Aspen uses stem cell therapy successfully heal everyone.

Why all this interest in these cells?

The unique property of stem cells makes them useful in researching and understanding how diseases occur. This understanding can help us discover new treatments to treat conditions such as cancer and Parkinson's disease.

Stem cell research into the treatment of stroke and heart disease is ongoing, and the results so far are promising. It is believed that in the future, these cells may be modified in a way to treat conditions such as type I diabetes and arthritis.

We are striving to shift the emphasis from disease-driven medicine to an optimal health medical practice. We treat each of our patients individually and safely recommend a program according to their specific situations. To know more about us visit
