Where do Stem Cells come from? Look for the answer below!
Does it require using aborted fetuses? No!
Are babies "murdered" to acquire stem cells? NO!
Believe it or not, we get these questions on almost a daily basis in our holistic medical healthcare clinics in Palm Coast and Edgewater.
While there are multiple sources of stem cells that can be used for therapeutic purposes, the best source of mesenchymal stem cells is from umbilical cord tissue. You can read more about that on a post I made last year HERE.
Ethically, we could never use stem cells acquired from a source that would harm a baby or mother. Fortunately, with medical technology today you don't have to. And because our Edgewater stem cell clinic uses umbilical cord stem cells you don't have to worry about painful or dangerous procedure to harvest adult stem cells.
Other benefits of using umbilical cord tissue include:
- lower cost than adult stem cells
- safer procedure than other sources of stem cells
-higher viability of live mesenchymal stem cells than other sources
