Cells Are the New Cure
Stem cells are the means to create new body tissue. They regenerate, rejuvenate and strengthen.

Stem cells are being used in joints where the body wears down. There are mixed results on regenerating cartilage 

They are also used to rebalance the immune system. Cellular therapies are still developing for treating autoimmune disorders.

The older you get, the weaker your stem cells become. Introducing new stem cells into the system can rejuvenate older stem cells.

Listen as Dr. Robin Smith and Dr. Max Gomez join Dr. Susanne Bennett to share the future of stem cell therapy.
