About Cell Therapy


What is Cell Therapy?

The basic theory behind cell therapy was stated best by Paracelsus, a 16th-century physician who wrote: "Heart heals the heart, lung heals lung, spleen heals spleen; like cures like." Paracelsus and many other early physicians believed that the best way to treat illness was to use living tissue to rebuild and revitalize ailing or aging tissue. Modern orthodox medicine lost sight of this method, so it now uses chemicals to interrupt or override living processes. While chemicals and drugs work only until they are broken down by the body's metabolic processes, cell therapy has a long-term effect, because it stimulates the body's own healing and revitalizing powers.

Doctors who practice cell therapy believe that cell therapy acts like an organ transplant and actually makes the old cells to "act younger". This biological "lesson" is not quickly forgotten by the cells.
In Europe, the effectiveness of cell therapy is widely accepted. In West Germany, for example, more than 5,000 German physicians regularly administer cell therapy injections. A great proportion of those injections are funded by the West German social security system. Several million patients the world over have received cell therapy injections since the mid-1950's.

How Does Cell Therapy Work?

Let's be aware that cell therapy is practiced every day all over the world. Blood transfusion and the transfusion  of various other blood components, such as red blood cells, white blood cells, blood platelets, is actually a form of cell therapy where the acceptance has been uniformly widespread. Less commonly, implant of the cells of the thymus have been utilized-essentially without as much as the wink of the eye of the medical authorities.

Cell therapy is actually an implantation by injection of xenogenic (of animal origin) fetal or juvenile suspensions of cells or tissues in physiological solution.
No one knows exactly how cell therapy works. Basically, cell therapy is transplanting an organ; but instead of actually transplanting an organ, you are transplanting the cells of an organ. The transplanted cells then somehow bring about the revitalization of their corresponding organs.

We do not know all that there is yet to know about cell therapy. But we do know that the implantation by injection has the following advantages over conventional procedure of surgical transplant:

1. Implantation of cells by injection brings about a rapid dispersion of the cell material all over the body.

2. The cells are not injured due to lack of blood supplies during the dispersion, which is very commonly the reason for the death of cells after the organ transplant.

3. Since the cells are injected in the form of suspensions, a rapid incorporation into the metabolic processes of the body occurs.

4. Organs that are impossible to transplant (such as the brain or some of the endocrine glands) or very difficult to transplant (such as kidneys, heart, or liver) can be implanted in the form of cells very easily.

5. Fetal tissues, with their higher biological potencies, are implanted in the recipient and used at various sites in the body. The recipient organism itself controls and carries out a selective incorporation of the various fetal cells.

Transplanting an entire organ is impractical, for several reasons. Your immune system might reject any transplanted organ. And who is going to risk trading an "old" organ or gland that is nonetheless functioning for a "new" one that might totally fail if the transplant doesn't work? Thus, organ transplant today are limited to hopeless situations only.

If the body's immune system rejects entire transplanted organs, is there also the possibility that it will reject the individuals cells?

Very little. The fact is that the body usually accepts the individual cells injected during cell therapy. Again, we don't know exactly why.
Perhaps this is so because cell therapy uses embryonic cells, whose immunological makeup is still incomplete. Whatever the reason, we do know the cells do somehow get by the body's immune system.
But that's not all. Not only do they get into the body, they also go straight to their corresponding organs. Liver cells go to the liver, spleen cells go to the spleen, sex gland cells go to the sex glands, and so on. Scientific studies, in which these glandular substances were tagged with radioisotopes before injection, have proved that the injected (and ingested) cells do find their way to the specific corresponding organ.

Once the cells have found their way to the target organs or glands, do they have the power to do any good?

The answer to that appears to be Yes, too. Independent studies by cellular biologists have discovered that a single cell from a specific organ contains the information needed to rebuild the entire organ or gland.

Scientist extracted kidney, skin, and liver cells from chick embryos. After processing them in much the same way the cells are processed for the cell therapy, they were reinjected into the membrane of an egg. The cells developed into their specific organs.

Other independent research by scientists who were not cell therapists, and who were not investigating cell therapy, has arrived at many of the same conclusions used to explain cell therapy.

First of all, they have established that embryonic tissue has the greatest growth stimulating effect. This make sense. Young living things always contain more "life force" than mature ones.

Secondly, they have confirmed that the growth stimulating effect of live cells is definitely organ specific but not species specific. This means that liver cells will only stimulate the growth of liver cells, but they will do so no matter what animal the cells come from.

Finally, it has been demonstrated that unwanted, or unnecessary, cells are rejected without doing harm to the body.

Two major theories explain how cells bring about revitalization of ailing or aging organ. One theory says that the genetic information contained in the RNA and DNA of the "old" cells is defective, because of either age or disease. Perhaps the old cells' genetic codes have developed gaps or incorrect bits of information. This cellular genetic misinformation causes the cells to reproduce inefficiently. The new cells do not look or function as well as they should.

Along comes the fresh, young cells, with their fresh genetic information contained in their DNA and RNA. This theory says that the new cells carry the correct genetic message to the old cells. The new cells replaced the misinformation with the proper original genetic codes. The mistakes are corrected and the gaps filled. Once the correct information is in place, the organ or gland begins to function correctly - as if it, too, were as "young" as the donor cells.

The second theory is simpler. It explains the aging of the cells in much the same way: As we age, our cells gradually lose their ability to function precisely as they were intended. This theory, however, does not bother with genetic codes. It says that the mere presence of the fresh cells stimulates secretions that activate the aging or diseased cells to get back on the track and function properly.

The implantation provides the recipient organisms with a great number of biochemical substrates and enzymes that are found in very high concentrations and unique composition in the fetal and juvenile cells and tissues.

What Can You Expect From Cell Therapy?

Dr. Niehans stated the ultimate aim of cell therapy in this way: "What I am striving after is not only to give more years to life but especially to give more life to years." Niehan's aim was to "make all the organs struck by old age capable once more of functioning properly and, at the same time, bring fresh strength to the whole body by revitalization of the sex gland."

The problem that cell therapy is designed to solve include the following:
  • General loss of vitality
  • Physical and mental exhaustion
  • Convalescence after illness
  • Premature aging
  • Signs of deterioration of the brain, heart, kidneys, lungs, liver, and digestive organs
  • Lack of drive and declining mental efficiency
  • Weakness of the immune system
  • Arthritis and other degenerative diseases of the connective tissue
  • Underfunction of the endocrine glands
  • Disturbances of menopause
  • Parkinsonism
  • Chronic pain, migraine, headaches, neuralgia, back pain, sciatica, artherosclerosis of the brain, heart, and peripheral circulation
Cell therapy successfully revitalizes and extends youth. Cell therapists see their patients' skin tone and complexion improve, their vitality increase, their youthful optimism and energy return, and various other infirmities of aging much improve.

Dr. Niehans used cell therapy for alot more than youth extension. He used live cell injections not only to regenerate diseased or aged organs but also to stimulate development of underdeveloped or retarded organs. In fact, Niehans's successful treatment of dwarfism provided him with some of his earliest notoriety in the United States.

The basic therapeutic effect of cell therapy was described Dr. Niehans as "organotropic cellular regeneration in the impaired organs." In other words, the therapy stimulated the disease and aging-damaged organs to regenerate. This restoration usually takes anywhere from three to six months after the injections.

Doctors who use cell therapy have reported that atherosclerosis patients also benefit. In a study performed on laboratory rats, cell therapy increased the residual pliability of aorta tissue to the extent that when stretched, it returned to its original shape much faster. This is a characteristic of younger tissue.

Experiments on connective tissue have shown that cell therapy can increase the strength and pliability of this important structural elements of the body. The youthful appearance of your skin is determined in large part by the health of your connective tissue. But that's not all. How youthfully your joints, muscles, and blood vessels function also depends on the condition of your connective tissue. Since the success of several cosmetic surgery operations depends upon the strength and elasticity of the skin, a course of cell therapy before rejuvenating surgery is a good idea for older patients whose skin has lost its elasticity.
