Patches: What are Stem Cells?


    • What are Stem Cells?
    • Stem Cells: The Problem & the Solution (images)
    • “X39™ & Stem Cells” – a David Schmidt webinar

✓ Stem Cells are the master cells and building blocks of the entire body

✓ It is their job to naturally repair and renew

✓ Stem cells are found throughout the body in various tissues and organs

✓ Stem cells replenish dying cells and regenerate damaged tissue by entering the bloodstream, where they migrate to areas most in need of repair and renewal

Stem Cells

1. REPAIR SYSTEM: In adults, stem cells serve as the body’s repair system

  • Stem cells possess the capability of dividing to replenish themselves 
  • Stem cells are cells that have the potential to change into other types of cells in the body during growth and development 

2. DIFFERENTIATION: Stem cells also possess the capability of turning into specialized organ cells in a process called differentiation

  • It is through stem cell differentiation that stem cells can replace damaged organ cells
  • It is through the replacement of damaged cells by new organ cells – derived from stem cells – that regeneration occurs
  • Since stem cells are the precursor to every cell in the body, the potential exists to regenerate the body from damage, even entire organs or entire limbs
  • The use of stem cells to treat human diseases is now termed regenerative medicine.
