Stem Cell Therapy for Heart Disease: The Benefits and What You Can Expect From Treatment | Stem Cell Treatment Center Northern California

Heart or cardiovascular disease is an unforgiving condition, being the number one cause of death for both men and women worldwide. Heart attacks and congestive heart failure are challenging conditions for patients, researchers and doctors alike, heart attacks can cause serious damage to the muscles in the heart which hurts its pumping efficiency. 

Most treatments out for heart failure and such issues focus on the symptoms but do not get to the root problem that will keep these problems arising. Heart disease stem cell therapy is a new innovative treatment that aims towards fighting the cause, loss of functioning heart muscles. 

As a stem cell treatment center in Northern California, our team is experienced with stem cells and how they can be used to properly heal and restore important functions naturally and effectively. Dr. Ghelfi provides high-quality stem cell treatments for patients in and around Redding, Sacramento, Red Bluff, Anderson, Shasta Lake and surrounding areas to give people the care and support they deserve.


What are stem cells?

Stem cells are part of a body’s natural healing process when injured stem cells travel from the heart or bone marrow straight to the injury. These cells promote repair for damaged cells and regeneration to get healthy and functioning cells working again and repairing any injured tissue. For damage in the heart, they work to secrete hormones that will help rescue damaged cells and stem cells can even turn into heart muscles to aid even further. 

But our bodies aren’t perfect and so this process could use a little help, one thing is typically after a week or more the heart can stop signalling for heart cells which leave the healing job unfinished. Having only partially repaired tissue becomes a burden, making the heart work harder and less efficiently. 


Let’s break down cardiovascular disease

Also known as heart disease, cardiovascular disease is a broad term used for conditions that affect the heart or its blood vessels. This includes; coronary artery disease (CAD), valvular heart disease, heart failure, heart arrhythmia, heart attacks or MI, carditis, venous thrombosis, aortic aneurysms, and many more.

Of course, the most obvious symptoms of heart disease are problems related to your heart, and with such a range of specific diseases under this umbrella term each one will have their own specific issues but some of the most commonly experienced are:

  • Chest pain
  • Racing or slow heartbeat
  • Lightheadedness
  • Fainting
  • Swelling in the legs due to poor circulation
  • Fatigue
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweating
  • Nausea
  • Persistent cough


Is stem cell therapy the right move for you?

While it is a new treatment option and innovations within the world of stem cell treatments are coming out all the time there have been multiple studies showing the effectiveness of heart disease stem cell therapy. With how the transplanted stem cells can repair tissue, release growth factors, aid in regenerating more healthy stem cells, minimize inflation, reduce hypertrophy, and promote new blood cell growth this treatment can significantly help not only the symptoms of cardiovascular disease but also the cause.

Stem cells can bring in the “Paracrine Effect”. This effect stimulates the patient’s cells to repair any harmed or diseased tissue, without any donor cells directly contributing to this new tissue. This happens because the stem cells from the treatment secrete factors that signal the body’s own cells to change behavior and focus on the target issue area.
