Adult stem cells treat a host of diseases, say doctors

(NaturalNews) Doctors and researchers are hailing the successes of adult stem cell treatments, which are treating everything from heart disease and diabetes, to leukemia and blindness. Adult stem cells -- the kind harvested from adult bone marrow and other tissues -- can be injected into the body to help regrow and repair organs, tissues and skin.

Unlike controversial embryonic stem cells which are harvested from aborted, human embryos, adult stem cells are extracted from living, adult humans. And based on years of experience using innovative therapy treatments, adult stem cells are proving to be highly successful in treating otherwise "incurable" diseases.

Dr. Thomas Einhorn, chairman of orthopedic surgery at Boston University Medical Center, for example, successfully used a man's pelvic bone stem cells to heal the same man's broken ankle. By drawing bone marrow from the pelvis and condensing it into an injectable liquid, Einhorn was able to spur a complete ankle healing in four months.

Then, there is the case of a patient whose damaged vision was restored after receiving adult stem cell treatment.

A recent Denver Post article explains that adult stem cells are being used to treat people with leukemia, lymphoma, heart disease, multiple sclerosis and diabetes. The possibilities are endless with adult stem cells, say numerous doctors and medical experts.

Adult stem cells can literally turn into bones, blood vessels and tissues that are diseased or damaged, and they seem to adapt to whatever is needed by the body to heal a specific area.

"That gives adult stem cells really a very interesting and potent quality that embryonic stem cells don't have," explains Rocky Tuan from the University of Pittsburgh.
