Our body’s immune system is designed to protect us from diseases and infections. However, if you have an autoimmune disease, your immune system attacks healthy cells in your body. Autoimmune diseases can affect many different parts of the body. There are more than 85 types of autoimmune diseases. Symptoms depend on which part of the body is affected.
More than 50 million Americans are living with an autoimmune disease. Currently, the most common treatment for autoimmune disease focuses on controlling the autoimmune reaction with immunosuppressant medications. However, there is now a better way to treat many autoimmune diseases with Stem Cell Therapy.
Who is Susceptible to Autoimmune Disease?
Autoimmune diseases can affect nearly everyone. However, certain people are more at a risk than others. These include:
- Women of childbearing age - Studies show that women are more likely than men to suffer from autoimmune diseases which often start during their childbearing years.
- Those with a family history – Certain autoimmune diseases run in families such as lupus and multiple sclerosis. Inheriting certain genes can make it more likely to get an autoimmune disease.
- Different races or ethnic backgrounds - Specific autoimmune diseases are more prevalent in certain groups of individuals. For instance, type 1 diabetes is more common in white people. Lupus is most severe for African-Americans and Hispanic people.
- Individuals who are around certain environmental elements – Exposure to certain environmental elements such as sunlight, chemicals called solvents, and viral and bacterial infections have been linked to several autoimmune diseases.
Multiple Sclerosis is a volatile and disabling disease of the central nervous system that interrupts the transmission of information within the brain, and between the brain and body. This disease damages the myelin sheath, which is the protective coating that surrounds nerve cells. When the myelin sheath is damaged, transmission of messages between the brain and body are highly affected. Multiple sclerosis affects nearly 400,000 people in the United States. Although, there is currently no cure for Multiple Sclerosis, those suffering with the disease rely on medication to help manage their symptoms. However, there is now a better way with Stem Cell Therapy.
Lupus and Fibromyalgia Treatment
The treatment performed at our clinics is a breakthrough medical procedure where Stem Cells (cellular building blocks) are usually administered intravenously and subcutaneously (under the skin) in Lupus patients. The whole procedure takes approximately one hour and has no known negative side effects. Following the treatment, the Fetal Stem Cells will travel throughout the body, detecting damaged cells and tissue and attempts to restore them. The Fetal Stem Cells can also stimulate existing normal cells and tissues to operate at a higher level of function, boosting the body’s own repair mechanisms to aid in the healing process. These highly adaptive cells then remain in the body, continually locating and repairing any damage they encounter.

Stem cell of America places our patients’ safety as our top priority. Therefore, our Stem Cells undergo extensive screening to ensure no infections or impurities are present. Our testing process makes use of current Stem Cell research and ensures we use only the healthiest cells to enable the safest and most effective Fetal Stem Cell treatment possible. And, unlike other types of Stem Cells, Fetal Stem Cell procedures are proven to be completely safe and effective. Additionally, Stem Cell therapy eliminates a patient’s need to use medications to suppress the immune system.
With over 7500 patients treated, Stem Cell Of America has achieved positive long-term results using Stem Cell therapy to treat various Autoimmune Diseases such as Multiple Sclerosis and Lupus. Patients have reported long-term relief through Stem Cell therapy for Autoimmune Diseases. Contact us today to learn more!
Commonly, positive changes are seen between three to six months post treatment in Autoimmune Disease patients.
