What Are Stem Cells?
Stem Cells are specialized cells that know what you need and where you need it, and they go there and become it.
Mesenchymal Stem Cells are cells (MSC’s) which naturally are produced in every person’s body. These Stem Cells (MSC’s) will home in on the signal of injured areas of the body to help heal. MSC’s are able to adapt and become what the body needs to repair and increase regeneration. As we age, the body has less and less Stem Cells and it can take much longer to recover.

Mesenchymal Stem Cell Decline with Age
At Williamson County Integrative Medicine, we use have used Mesenchymal Stem Cells and produced fantastic results in our medical treatment. Anyone of any age may be a viable patient for stem cell therapy. Because there is a significant decrease in the amount of stem cells present in a patient as they age, we use stem cells extracted from umbilical cord blood donations. They are always screened for your safety in a lab that meets the strictest conditions. This ensures that we are able to provide every patient with a rich source of stem cells instead of extracting an unknown amount of stem cells from the patient’s own body, which may affect patient outcomes.
