Stem cell addiction therapy

Stem Cells - simple explanation

What is a stem cell? Stem cells are elemental cells that can develop into any type of specialized cells. Simply, stem cell can become any of the over two hundred different cells in the human body (brain cell, kidney cell, lung cell etc.) and atop all of that, they have an ability for self renewal through mitosis (cell duplication) which means that each cell can produce more stem cells on its own.

There are two basics categories of stem cells: embryonic (withdrawn from the umbilical cord blood) and adult cells (extracted from the bone marrow, adipose tissue or processed blood) which are more often used in medical practice.

Stem cell technology for addiction

Stem cells addiction therapyNumerous studies have confirmed that more than fifty percent of addictions are a result of genetic predisposition. For instance, children of drug addicts are 7-9 times prone to developing an addiction. We can say that their brain is prewired for drug abuse, alcohol abuse or any other substance abuse, and even after successful therapy they may relapse into some other form of addiction – they are, as we see, genetically bound to.

But, even if a person have lower predisposition for dependencies, they may as well and up with some kind of addiction. How does that happen? By abusing any addictive substances and connecting it with joyful feelings, we are training our brain to associate that substance with happiness and as a result, it makes us pursue that abuse more and more which finally leads to addiction.

It is obvious that this process makes addictions hard to treat, weather it is genetically imposed or acquired over time because the brain itself needs some kind of rewiring. Brain chemistry has changed, brain cells become addicted (so to speak), which means that treatment must be performed on cellular level. Finally, after decades of stem cell research, this can be successfully achieved – with stem cell therapy.   

Stem cell addiction therapy – successful treatment for addiction

Stem cell addiction therapy as a method of treating drug and alcohol addiction

As we pointed out earlier, to successfully treat addictions, we need to approach the problem on a cellular level. Brain chemistry must be rebalanced, deceased cells must be replaced.

This is achieved by transplanting cells into the area of the brain which controls reactions to various substances (drugs, alcohol), or any other addiction. Stem cells than begin their reproduction and conversion into new healthy brain cells. Simultaneously, old and corrupted brain cells are dying, since their life cycle ends. As a result, that area of the brain is overwhelmed with healthy cells. Eventually, this “rebuilding” of the part of the brain that controls addictions, leads to complete healing.  

Stem cell addiction therapy is the purest method of treating addictions since the process itself mimics natural development of the human body. It is the future of the addiction therapy practice in drug rehab centers, since it is non-toxic (no medication is used), it is painless (unlike some other methods) an above all – it is successful.
