Stem cells have tremendous, or some would say miraculous, healing power. According to Orthopedic Stem Cell Expert Harry Adelson, ND, “Anytime you have healing after an injury, it’s a stem cell mediated event.” In fact, doctors that perform surgery don’t heal, rather, they employ their skill to create the conditions right for healing. But they depend on the body’s own healing mechanisms, such as stem cells, to do the job.
The field of Regenerative Medicine applies the concept of stem cell regeneration by using a source of stem cells in order to heal any tissue-related condition. These procedures rely on transplantation of stem cells from a healthy area of the body to another that needs the healing.
Stem cells can be obtained from several sources, such as umbilical cord blood and amniotic fluid from a healthy baby delivery, adipose tissue, and bone marrow. Research is underway to develop various sources for stem cells in a lab because they can be used to treat many diseases, including neurodegenerative disease, and conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. And although you won’t hear much about it in the mainstream news cycle, we have testimonials of people healing tumors, melanomas and other cancerous conditions.
Stem cells are the master cells of your body that continuously regenerate to produce other specialized cells. They are like blank slates, or the raw materials from which come all other cells. They don’t have a specialized job in themselves but can become any type of cell. In the body (or in a lab) these master stem cells divide into other cells called daughter cells.
The daughter cells either become specialized into healthy liver cells, nerve cells, bone cells, blood cells, etc., or they self-renew to form more stem cells for the body to use. In a developing fetus, the stem cells within the umbilical cord blood and amniotic fluid are responsible for its differentiation and growth of body parts. In the fully developed human body, stem cells are used for repair.
One of the most remarkable features of stem cells is their ability to survey a wound and communicate with other cells and systems the extent of damage. Then, the stem cells release specific chemicals called “signaling molecules,” for what is needed at the site for healing. Put that same stem cell in another area and it will activate different chemical signals, or signaling molecules.
Picture going to a drugstore for what ails you; if you have a headache you will buy headache medicine. If you have a cough you will buy cough medicine.
If you’re not getting enough hydrogen the body starts to shut down as a way to try to preserve energy and life. As your hydrogen levels start to increase everything starts to regenerate, including your stem cells.
When you drink hydrogen water and/or inhale hydrogen gas, you are providing the body with the pure energy it needs to begin the molecular, or chemical signaling every cell needs to repair itself. This is because you are providing the body with the base element of molecular hydrogen – a building block of life.
Hydrogen is the smallest element and hence has the ability to penetrate into any and all cells. Hydrogen activates the mitochondria, the so-called powerhouses of our cells, to produce energy. Hydrogen improves blood flow / circulation, and suppresses inflammation; it is called a “super anti-oxidant.”
