What is Ulcerative Colitis?
Ulcerative colitis is an inflammatory bowel disease that causes inflammation and will lead to the development of ulcers and sores in your digestive tract. This condition typically affects the interior lining of your large intestine and rectum. Symptoms usually develop gradually over time instead of seeing immediate change. Ulcerative colitis is a progressive condition that will continue to worsen if it is not carefully managed and cared for. Symptom management is the most effective course of action for this condition and will give the patients the greatest improvement in the quality of life!
The team of specialists at Cords of Revitalization helps our patients manage a range of auto-immune conditions and their associated symptoms with stem cell IV therapy. In this case, attempting to suppress or correct the immune system will grant patients the most benefit and symptom relief.
What Causes Ulcerative Colitis?
The exact cause that initiates the development of ulcerative colitis is not known, although improper diet and sustained levels of stress are key contributors to the worsening of this condition.
The most commonly agreed-upon cause is a dysfunctional immune system. When your immune system tries to fight off an invasive bacteria or an initiates abnormal immune response to healthy tissues, this causes the immune system to attack the cells in the digestive tract, too.
These attacks slowly break down healthy tissue in the intestinal tract, causing inflammation and ulcerous sores to develop and become symptomatic.
Ulcerative colitis symptoms can vary, depending on the severity of inflammation and where it occurs. Signs and symptoms may include:
- Abdominal pain and cramping
- Rectal pain/ bleeding
- Urgency to defecate
- Inability to defecate despite urgency
- Weight loss
- Fatigue and fever
The majority of patients have mild to moderate symptoms and will experience times when the condition worsens and others when the symptoms seem to enter remission for periods of time.
Managing Ulcerative Colitis
Cellular Proliferation & Regeneration
Stem cell IV therapy introduces cells into the body that can be programmed to perform specific functions. Embryonic stem cells have the ability to differentiate into various cell and tissue types, making them highly useful for repairing and regenerating damaged tissues caused by Ulcerative Colitis. These cells can help rebuild the areas affected by sores and restore proper function to the bowels.
This 2017 study demonstrates how stem cells have the ability to migrate to areas within the body that are damaged or require regeneration. This shows the potential opportunity for stem cells to focus their regenerative properties on areas that need them the most!
Ulcerative Colitis is likely the result of a dysfunctional immune system. The immunomodulatory properties that are present within stem cells can help suppress an overactive or improperly functioning immune cells. Stem cells can help encourage the production of T cells in the body, which are among the most powerful immunosuppressants, helping to restore balance and proper function to the immune system.
The stem cells used by Cords of Revitalization contain powerful anti-inflammatory properties that do exactly as the name suggests. These elements, once introduced into the body, seek out pro-inflammatory cells and help provide a balance that reduces swelling and general inflammation.
