The Healing Power of Stem Cells and Exosomes

The Healing Power of Stem Cells and Exosomesby Steven F. Hotze, M.D.

God has given your body amazing restorative power, a natural ability to heal itself. This is known as the body’s Innate Regenerative Capacity. Stem cells play a major role in this regenerating process.

Stem cells exert their influence by producing biologically active molecules, called exosomes, which modulate the immune system and stimulate cellular healing.

Over the past several years I have been extremely interested in offering stem cell treatment to our guests, however, the FDA prohibits the most beneficial stem cell therapy. Prior to 2014, stem cell companies could harvest stem cells and then put them in a medium where they would expand and grow into hundreds of millions of stem cells.  These stem cells were then given intravenously or directly into patients’ joints.  This is what the FDA has prohibited. People have to travel outside of the country to obtain this treatment, which is very expensive and inconvenient.

In the past, stem cells were believed to provide their regenerative effect by transforming themselves into the type of cells that had been damaged, i.e., in joints, stem cells were thought to become cartilage. Over the past several years, research has demonstrated that the beneficial effects of stem cells are not related to their ability to differentiate into the cells that have been damaged. Rather, stem cells secrete biologically active molecules, known as exosomes, which create an environment where the injured tissues can regenerate themselves. Exosomes can be given intravenously or directly into joints.

Here is an analogy that will help you understand the relationship between stem cells and exosomes. Many oil refineries line the gulf coast.  Crude oil is refined into various petrochemical products, such as gasoline, diesel, butane, and propane.  These products are shipped to the various industries that use them. When you pull up to a gas station, you fill your car with gasoline that was produced at the refinery. Think of the stem cells as the refinery, and the exosomes as the gasoline.

Health Benefits of Exosomes

There are scores of articles in the medical journals about the regenerative health benefits of exosomes.

Over the past several months, I have attended medical conferences to learn about exosomes and how they can be used to help restore a person’s health.  I have also visited FDA approved tissue laboratories that produce and extract exosomes for clinical use.

The more I have studied about exosomes, the more excited I have become about offering exosome treatment at the Hotze Health & Wellness Center.

Exosomes are nano-sized vesicles that play a key role in cell-to-cell communication. Exosomes alter inflammation, contribute to tissue and organ repair, support neural communication, and enhance the viability and activity of the mitochondria, which are the power plants contained in every cell. They also participate in revitalizing aging cells.

Exosomes are truly catalysts for whole-body health.  They have been used for pain management, immune support, and tissue and organ repair.

The following are some key points about the exosomes that we will be using for treatment.

1. The exosomes are ethically sourced. They are donated by consenting mothers who have passed a comprehensive medical background check, blood screenings, and are full-term, live C-section births, and come from an FDA registered Tissue Bank.

2. Third party testing is done on every batch, specifically for sterility and eligibility.

3. Single generation harvesting. A new placenta is used for every batch of exosomes to produce the highest potency.

4. There must be sufficient exosomes for the treatment to be effective. For example, for a knee treatment, each injection contains 15-30 billion exosomes.  Intravenous treatment contains 75 billion exosomes.

I am enthusiastic about incorporating exosome treatment into our health and wellness program, starting in January. It has shown great potential for allowing individuals to have an additional way to improve and restore their health.
