Cell Therapies

How can animals help you look and feel younger?  It is their cells. Their cells contain an abundance of hormones and chemical information that our bodies can process in order to trigger rejuvenation and healing.

The History Behind Cell Therapies

Live Cell Therapy is based on a principle that was founded in the 16th century by the physician Paracelsus. In contrast to the beliefs of his contemporaries such as Galen, that the disease of certain intensity should be cured by a medicine of the opposite intensity, Paracelsus and his followers claimed a poison in the body would be cured by a similar poison. Simply put: life cures life. This principle of similitude is the basis for modern homeopathy and the underlying principle of Live Cell Therapy.

In the 1930s the Swiss Physician Paul Niehans further expounded this theory when he injected a solution made of a steer’s parathyroid gland into a woman whose parathyroid gland had accidentally been removed during surgery. This intervention saved her life. Many years later Niehans himself wrote: “ I thought the effect would be short lived, just like the effect of an injection of hormones…but to my great surprise the injection of fresh cells not only failed to provoke a reaction but the effect lasted, and longer than any synthetic hormone, any implant or any surgical craft.” This was the start of Live Cell Therapy.

What are Cell Therapies?

Live Cell Therapy involves the use of animal organs to treat diseases of the same organs in humans. Basically, the organ is removed and ground up with saline solution and electrolytes. This mix is then injected into the patient. Early attempts of this treatment may have resulted in many allergic reactions due to the presence of animal protein and immune components in the mixture. Modern Live Cell Therapy, also called Organ Peptide Therapy, no longer carries this  great risk. During production the organ solution is filtered to remove the cell particles and animal protein. Only the soluble components of the cell remain in the solution. Due to the lack of foreign proteins, the risk of allergic reaction or anaphylactic shock is all but eliminated.

Another form of Live Cell Therapy involves the injection (or implantation) of organ material gained from animal fetuses or extremely young animals suspended in a physiological solution. Due to the young age of the donor animal their cell protein tends not to provoke an allergic reaction in the recipient. Live Cell Therapy is considered by some as a form of organ transplantation. Things would be very simple if it were possible just to exchange an old or damaged organ for a new one. Unfortunately, the body’s immune system rejects entire organs that have been transplanted. Interestingly, this rejection does not seem to take place when individual cells are introduced to the body. This may be due to the use of embryonic cells, as their immunological makeup is not complete. Another very interesting phenomenon is that organ cells injected into the recipient immediately find their way to the corresponding organ (i.e. spleen cells travel to the spleen, cartilage cells travel to the cartilage and liver cells travel to the liver). This phenomenon has been well studied and documented.

Other scientific studies have indicated that the information contained in an individual cell from a specific organ is enough to rebuild an entire organ. Cells contain RNA and DNA, which are the building blocks of all living organisms. Once injected this package of information helps the body to produce healthy new cells.

So animals really can help you look and feel younger.

Orthopedic Implants

Orthopedic implants are implants performed on people who sometimes have lost one or both of their lower extremities. To replace the limb, a surgeon may have to cut deep into the remaining bone and joint to fuse the prosthetic with the bone and joints. This can be quite risky and a per-cursor to infection. Fortunately, live cell therapy can play a role in dealing with this type of predicament.

Orthopedic Implants and Live Cell Therapy

Thymus extract, was shown to be a useful prophylactic against infection resulting from orthopedic implant surgery. Deep prosthetic infections are very difficult to cure without removing the infected device; the outcome can be devastating, such as: total loss of joint function, amputation, and occasionally, death. Preliminary results show that thymus extracts may  play a role both in treatment of infection and prophylaxis against hospital-acquired infection.

CONTRA – INDICATIONS

To avoid unexpected side-effects cell-implantations (or sublingual) should not be carried out under the following conditions:
1.    During acute or chronic bacterial infections. (In chronic infections lasting for many years and no longer responding to chemotherapeutics, an exception to the rule can be made. In such cases, the weakened natural resistance of the body can be activated by revitalizing the patient through cell therapy and by strengthening those organs and organ systems which supply resistance.
2.    During acute viral infections 3.    Before and after vaccinations (4 weeks) 4.    In acute allergic-hyperergic conditions5.    In terminal stages of disease (when a “last try” is attempted)
6.    Cell therapy is also inadvisable as long as the body still contains disseminating foci of infection. Festering teeth, a chronically inflamed appendix or chronic inflammation of the tonsils or gall bladder, for example, would fall into this category.

SIDE – EFFECTS

Foetal cells contain a high concentration of biochemical substrates, enzymes; they have no toxicity. The antigenic potential is much lower than in adult-cell-material. But under certain circumstances there can occur the following side-effects:
1.    A more or less pronounced local reddening and swelling
2.    Pain at the injection site, usually lasting for 2-5 minutes
3.    Rise in temperature (0,5 –1,5 Celsius) on the first and second day after the implantation
4.    A feeling of lassitude, tiredness, desire to sleep, distaste for alcohol 5. Sublingual: Nearly no side-effects
