Reversing metabolic age is no easy endeavor. There are 9 hallmarks of aging: genomic instability, telomere attrition, epigenetic alterations, loss of proteostasis, deregulated nutrient sensing, mitochondrial dysfunction, cellular senescence, stem cell exhaustion, and altered intercellular communication. All nine show clinical benefit from the rejuvenative and regenerative signaling content of Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes, since they reach all 220+ tissue types and with their secretive reprogram any nucleic and metabolic pathways that are causing degeneration. Stem cell exhaustion is especially a concern in aging. By the age of 60 we only have about 10% of our origins stores left. Pluripotent stem cells made from the patient’s own skin cells, the Autologous AESC, are a sure way to replenish these stores.
Immune dysregulation is at the root of all auto-immune diseases. All therapies must have their primary focus to re-establish immune tolerance to endogenous tissue. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes have affinity to all 220+ tissue types and signal immunoregulatory molecules and transcriptions factors to help to repair and regenerate all tissues in the body. This is why we have such positive results treating autoimmune processes.
The facial nerve provides varied motor support and sensory communication in the face and nearby anatomical areas. When cranial nerve 7 becomes damaged, the symptoms are many, drooping of the mouth, inability to close the eye, dry eye, sensitivity to sound, tingling and pain, loss of taste, and entrapment neuropathies that extend to the neck and shoulders. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes come in to repair the chronic nerve aggravation and damage via their neurotropic growth factors and mRNA and miRNA transcription factors.
Stem cells have been found to be effective in treating a variety of blood disorders, including blood cancers, lymphocytic leukemia, chronic myelogenous leukemia, lymphoblastic leukemia, plasma cell disorders, and other conditions affecting blood cells. Blood forming stem cells can be obtained from bone marrow cells, which are the cells that produce new blood cells in the body, or from cord blood stem cells, which are found in the umbilical cord after a baby is born. Hematopoietic progenitor cells, which are cells that give rise to all types of blood cells, can also be used for treatment. Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation, also known as bone marrow transplantation, is a common procedure used to treat these conditions. During the transplantation, the patient's own bone marrow cells are first destroyed with chemotherapy or radiation, and then replaced with healthy donor cells. This process allows the patient to receive new, healthy blood cells from the donor. Hematopoietic stem cell transplantation has been found to be a highly effective treatment for a variety of blood disorders, providing hope for patients who were previously considered untreatable. At Stemaid institute, we do not offer bone marrow transplantation. We do however support patients once recovered from these serious procedures with Intravenous administration of Plurisomes, to support recovery, repair and reprogramming.
The pancreas is such a precious organ, yet we so little talk about it. It produces natural insulin that shunts glucose into our cells for energy production. This process becomes dysregulated in excess carbohydrate intake or in diabetes type 1, an autoimmune condition where the islet cells atrophy. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes come to the rescue in both cases, by immunomodulating autoimmunity processes at play, treating oxidative stress in the area, and preventing islet cell apoptosis and tissue atrophy that renders disease reversal nearly impossible.
A fracture is a traumatic injury event to the bone tissue. Bone regeneration and bone remodeling is called into play immediately and long term. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes secrete immunomodulatory factors that help in the acute phase, and specific bone repair factors such as bone morphogenic factors (BMP), osteoprotegerins (OPG), that speed up the healing and prevent complications long term.
Bone spurs, also called osteophytes, form as a result of excessive bone tissue bundling, causing protuberances. Endogenous stem cells are sometimes accused of being the culprits via their accelerating bone regenerative Sox9 gene activity. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes secrete reparative factors such as OPG and BMP and remodel this bone deformation, a mechanism similar to scar and keloid remodeling.
MS needs a treatment strategy that quenches aggravating chronic inflammation, halts disease progression and reverses established neural damage. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes releasing immune & growth factors, neurotropic factors (ex: brain-derived neurotrophic factor, glial-derived neurotrophic factor and other additional factors supporting brain tissue), mRNAs & miRNAs that signal repair and regeneration of central and peripheral nerve tissue. As all neuronal diseases, pulsating doses for extended periods are recommended for this medical condition.
Chronic inflammation is a direct causative factor in the formation of aneurysms. The weakening of the wall is due to the degradation of extracellular matrix in the vessel wall. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes secrete anti-inflammatory and immunosuppressive factors that help with immune responses and mitigate this damage. They also contain vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGF) and numerous angiogenic factors that directly rebuild and strengthen the blood vessel wall.
TIAs and strokes cause neurological damage due to extended periods of oxygen deprivation. This leads to inflammation, apoptosis (cell death), and long term brain tissue atrophy. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes address neurodegenerative diseases repair on all three levels, stimulating immuno-regulation, angiogenesis and neurogenesis. They also release factors that build biobridges between the sites of injury and your own stem cells niches in the brain, waking up dormant stem cells for continual repair.
Temporary lack of oxygen transport to human brain tissue causes inflammation, apoptosis (cell death), and brain tissue atrophy. The long term consequences lead to severe mental and physical disability. Long term administration of pulsing doses of Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes gradually rebuilds blood vessel pathways to the area (angiogenesis) and repairs neural tissue (neurogenesis).
Traumatic brain injury involves neuroinflammation, neurodegeneration and brain cell death and tissue atrophy. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes secrete immunomodulatory, neurotropic factors (ex: brain-derived neurotrophic factors), and create biobridges between stem cell niches and injury sites, all of which stimulates significant repair and regeneration of brain tissue.
Chronic inflammation and senescence are at the root of neurodegenerative diseases and cognitive decline. Pluripotent embryonic stem cells and Plurisomes release into the aging tissue anti-inflammatory, immuno-regulatory, senolytic, senomodulatory, and senopreventive factors. There are 3 ways stem cells help to repair & regenerate brain tissue in neurodegenerative diseases: by releasing neurotropic factors (ex: brain-derived neurotrophic factor), immune & growth factors, mRNAs & miRNAs that signal renewal, repair, and regeneration by waking up 'niched' stem cells and stimulating them, via formation of a neurovascular matrix, a biobridge between the neural stem cells and sites of senoinflammation, injury, damage.
The dysfunction and loss of dopaminergic neurons in Parkinson’s disease leads to serious degeneration of brain tissue and loss of function. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes secrete neurotropic growth factors like NGF, BDNF, NT-3 to NT-5 and other trophic factors that act as protective agents and assist in repair and regeneration of brain tissue. As most neuronal diseases, this medical condition requires long-term treatment.
ALS is one of the most serious of all neuronal diseases. This medical condition involves a systemic loss of upper and lower motor neurons. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes contribute systemically to the halting of disease progression and reversing the loss of motor neurons. Neuroinflammation, denervation at neuromuscular junctions, axonal defects, loss of connectivity along the entire motor axis call for a systemic immunomodulatory, neurodegenerative strategy.
Like any other tissue, the human brain can be affected by cancerous processes and brain tumors develop. Although we do not treat advanced cancers at the Stemaid Institute, the pluripotent stem cells and their secretions, Plurisomes, have potent anti-tumorigenic activity that can potentially revert early forming brain tumors to more benign tissue. Anti-tumorigenic activity of adult stem cells, pluripotent stem cells and their exosomes is well documented in scientific literature. If you are looking for stem cell transplant for active brain tumors, please consult your physician.
Embryonic stem cells have emerged as a promising avenue for repairing damaged heart tissue caused by cardiovascular diseases such as myocardial infarction (heart attack). When a heart attack occurs, a portion of the heart muscle is deprived of oxygen, leading to the death of cardiac cells and impaired heart function. Traditional treatments aim to manage symptoms, but they do not restore the damaged tissue. When introduced into the bloodstream, their paracrine effects lead to regeneration of healthy heart tissue. This not only improves heart function but can also prevent further heart damage. The use of embryonic stem cells in the treatment of cardiovascular disease has shown promise in preclinical studies and clinical study series, raising hopes for a more effective treatment for heart attacks and other heart-related conditions.
Damage to the developing brain, as in cerebral palsy (CP), causes severe mental and physical disabilities. Pluripotent embryonic stem cells and Plurisomes contain signaling factors that help mitigate this developmental injury and repair damaged cells. They release a cascade of immune reponses and growth factors and induce the release of neural stem cells within the young brain that trigger the production of new neurons and glial cells. This particular neurological disorder responds well to pluripotent stem cell treatments, in children especially.
Fluoroquinolones cause systemic damage at the cellular level and at tissue level. The mitochondria take the brunt of the intracellular damage. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes release peptides, enzymes and growth factors that help to protect mitochondrial function and energy production. The tendons and ligaments upholding all organs and limbs are the most damaged tissue. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes release immunomodulatory factors and growth transcription factors that work diligently to rebuild tensile strength and flexibility of tendons and ligaments.
Pre-exisitng conditions and old age show the highest fatality in COVID-19. Immunosenecense (immune aging) is at the root of this. Chronic inflammatory response, excess of senescent cells and the extra affinity that this virus has for lung tissue and ACE2 receptors in the body - all pose an extra challenge. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes secrete immunomodulatory and senolytic factors that help quench the dangerous cytokine storm and attenuate the senescent cells. Functional dysregulation and organ damage from COVID-19 infection can lead to long-term post-viral symptoms. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes reach all 220+ tissue types and signal repair molecules and transcriptions factors that help to get your whole body back on tract.
Although digestion seems like a complex system where so much can go wrong, at the physiological level only three types of injury are happening: inflammation, apoptosis and atrophy. Acid Reflux, Ulcers, SIBO, IBS are all diagnoses of tissue injury due to these 3 physiological processes. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes work at the cellular, tissue and organ level to down-regulate excessive inflammation, to prevent unnecessary apoptosis and to reverse tissue atrophy that flattens the microvilli of the digestive tract and causes mibrobiome imbalances and symptoms of aggravation and irritability in the digestive tract.
Research is now clear that embryonic stem cells and their secretions, exosomes, create an anti-tumorigenic microenvironment. The microenvironment produced by Pluripotent embryonic stem cells suppresses tumorigenic properties, reprograms malignant cells to a benign state and de-creases the invasiveness of cancer cells. Cancer regression is the goal in our early cancer treatment options.

Chelation with intravenous EDTA and systemic detox support is our first line of treatment. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes are added to this protocol to support systemic tissue damage repair, that is significant with high levels of metal toxicity.
Neuroinflammation is one of the major causes of recurrent migraines. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes are masterful at quenching inflammation in the brain for two reasons. Firstly, unlike MSC, they have high affinity to brain tissue. Secondly they are abundant in immune factors and mRNAs and miRNAs thatched for immunomodulatory changes at the cellular level.
Injury brings on inflammation. This is healthy until it becomes dysregulated or chronic. Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes contain immunoregulatory peptides and transcriptions factors that attenuate the runaway inflammation, and allow the body to heal without the chronic pain and aggravation. They also contain potent growth factors that help repair the damage from the injury. We treat joints, ligaments and tendons injury (ex: meniscus injury) with local injections of Plurisomes, available in all our Stemaid programs.
In neuropathy, damaged nervous tissue fibers co-exists side by side to healthy uninjured nervous fibers. The damaged fibers cause inflammation and aggravate the intermingling healthy fibers, leading to neuropathic pain. Stem cell therapies like pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes release neurotropic factors like NGF, BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor), CNTF that protect the healthy fibers and assist the regeneration of damaged nerve tissue simultaneously.
Clinical applications of Pluripotent stem cells and Plurisomes help to prevent the wide range of symptoms that result from opioid addiction. They allow for safe tapering while maintaining therapeutic effect for pain relief. With stem cells, opioid effectiveness is maintained at lower and lower doses and gradually the patient can get off the medication. There is also evidence that exosomes can rewire the brain’s reward and pleasure centers so the patient no longer craves the experience the drug provided. This is a safe and whole-body regenerative way to get patients off opioid addiction, and by extension numerous forms of prescription drug addiction. Consult a health professional if you are planning this treatment.
Chemotherapy and radiation therapy are life saving to many on the cancer diagnosis spectrum. They cause damage to cancer cells and to healthy tissues simultaneously. The recovery must include systemic whole body regeneration.

Additionally, embryonic stem cells can suppress proinflammatory responses, reducing inflammation and pain in the affected area. In preclinical studies and clinical study series, the use of embryonic stem cells has shown promising results in the treatment of severe burns, leading to increased skin regeneration and improved wound healing.
Skin is the great protector. It is also the organ that shows aging first. Skin stem cells age much like our somatic cells, and with age cease to function optimally to repair damage.Damage from the outside and from the inside, it all shows up on the skin. Stem cells release growth factors, peptides, matrix proteins, enzymes, transcriptions factors and important intracellular signaling mediators that code for skin tissue renewal, repair, and regeneration. Rejuvenation from the inside and the outside.
When skin tissue is damaged by sun exposure, injury or stretching, the tissue response is inflammation, apoptosis and fibrosis. These processes are healthy until they go unchecked. Plurisomes contain immunomodulatory, anti-apoptotic and anti-fibrotic factors and regenerative mRNA and miRNA that help remodel damaged tissue such as wrinkles and stretch marks and assist in laying down normal lattice of collagen fibers, which further remodels and rejuvenates the skin.
In damaged epithelial cells and dermal tissue, inflammation and apoptosis lead to tissue degeneration and scar formation due to granulation tissue deposition. Plurisomes contain immune factors growth factors mRNAs & miRNAs that signal immunomodulation, angiogenesis, neurogenesis, anti-apoptotic and anti-fibrotic modulation that allows tissue to clear infection, clear run-away inflammation and begin the process of skin repair swiftly.
