Your body has all the tools it needs to self-heal, but sometimes it needs a little bit of direction to put those tools to use correctly. At Proage Institute of Regenerative Medicine in Sugar Land, TX and Brownsville, TX we know that regenerative medicine is the future of medical science. New research into this new field of medicine proves how useful natural regeneration is for your wellness.
What Is Regenerative Medicine Used For?
Regenerative medicine is a new branch of medicine that is used to regenerate, heal, and repair the body – from damaged tissue to hormonal imbalance. The goal of this type of medicine is to help patients improve pain, heal from energies, and find a better health balance. Most people can benefit from regenerative medicine treatments such as:
Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy
Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy is a natural treatment that replaces hormone production that has been lost due to the natural aging process. As people age, they begin to produce fewer secondary sex hormones, such as estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, that regulate essential processes in the body. By replacing hormones with natural-based hormones that are identical to the human body, people can subvert some of the symptoms associated with aging, including:
- Weight gain
- Low libido
- Skin dryness
- Vaginal dryness
- Thinning hair
- Weak nails
- Sleep disturbance
- Emotional changes
- Hot flashes
If you experience any of these symptoms, you are likely coping with hormonal changes brought on by the natural aging process. Regenerative treatments like bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can analyze the amount of hormone you are missing and replace this hormone to help rebalance your bodily processes and improve your sense of wellness.
Vitamin B12 is one of the most important vitamins required by the body to function correctly. Unfortunately, because the body does not make B12 by itself and because absorbing B12 from food is imperfect, many people are deficient in B12. Your body requires B12 to function correctly, specifically your nervous system, your brain, and your blood. Many people who have B12 deficiency feel:
- Confused and disoriented
- Numb in the fingers or toes
- Depression and anxiety
One popular regenerative treatment that can infuse your body with essential Vitamin B12 are injections in the arm or other muscle group. B12 injections are usually administered once a month to reduce symptoms. When you receive a B12 injection, you will notice a marked improvement in the overall energy you have, along with improvement in your mood and memory.
IV Nutrition treatments focus on providing your body with essential nutrients and minerals that are not otherwise adequately obtained from the diet. The nutritional formula of your IV treatment will be determined by your health concerns. The largest part of your IV formula will be saline water, which rehydrates the body. Your formula may contain glucose, amino acids, lipids, dietary minerals, and vitamins to provide your body with the tools necessary for proper functioning.
This treatment can help with a wide variety of health concerns, including asthma, bacterial illness, chronic fatigue syndrome, COPD, migraines, muscle spasms, immune disorders, and viral illnesses. Many patients notice a marked improvement in their symptoms very quickly, usually on the same day or even while the IV treatment is being administered.
How Many Regenerative Treatments Will You Need?
The number of regenerative treatments you will need will depend on your exact health concerns. In general, regenerative treatments work the best when you can have regular treatments. It’s important to remember that regenerative treatments replace what your body lacks, but as you live your day-to-day life, you will use up the resources produced with these therapies. This is why it’s best to have regular treatments for the best health results.
How Often Should You Have Treatments?
Most treatments should be repeated once every four weeks. Patients will get the best results from B12 and IV treatments when these treatments are regularly administered. For a treatment like bio-identical hormone replacement, the treatment will need to be repeated about every four to six months, which is about as long as the hormone treatments last.
Are Regenerative Treatments Right for Everyone?
In general, most regenerative treatments are good options for most people. It’s common for regenerative treatments to be combined with conventional medicine because regenerative therapies can enhance the efficacy of certain medications, physical rehabilitation, and other treatments.
The best way to know if regenerative treatments are right for you is to attend a consultation appointment where we can collect information about your health concerns, your current medications and supplements, and any symptoms you are having. You and your physician will work together to build a treatment plan that meets all of your health concerns and helps you rebalance your wellness.
