Though great progress has been made in medicine, current evidence-based and palliative treatments are increasingly unable to keep pace with patients’ needs, especially given our aging population. There are few effective ways to treat the root causes of many diseases, injuries and congenital conditions. In many cases, clinicians can only manage patients’ symptoms using medications or devices. Regenerative medicine is a game-changing area of medicine with the potential to fully heal damaged tissues and organs, offering solutions and hope for people who have conditions that today are beyond repair (Mayo Clinic)
Rather than treating the symptoms using medication, regenerative medicine attempts to fix the problem from its source.
Regeneration involves delivering specific types of cells or cell products to diseased tissues or organs, where they will ultimately restore tissue and organ function. This can be done through cell-based therapy or by using cell products, such as growth factors. Bone marrow transplants are an example (Mayo Clinic).
TBI Therapy’s techniques of healing a traumatic brain injury include the use of oxygen, blood, and nutrition. Hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) increases the amount of oxygen in the brain that is needed after a head injury. Intranasal therapies such as platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and adult stem cells (PRP-PDSC) directly places the specific type of cells needed to produce and restore tissue function.* The ketogenic diet and nutritional supplementation aids in supplying the brain with the proper nutrients for increased energy and the flushing of toxic by products.*

The role of stem cells: Stem cells have the ability to develop — through a process called differentiation — into many different types of cells, such as skin cells, brain cells, lung cells and so on. Stem cells are a key component of regenerative medicine, as they open the door to new clinical applications (Mayo Clinic).
