Regenerative Medicine Solutions (RMS), a global provider of stem cell treatments for degenerative diseases, is now offering Regenerative ColoTherapy (RCT), a proprietary stem cell treatment for people suffering with celiac and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis (UC) are two of the most notable conditions that fall under the IBD umbrella, affecting millions of people across the United States and the world.
It is estimated that there are 1.4 million cases of Crohn’s and colitis in the United States, which roughly translates to the population size of Philadelphia. Although Crohn’s, colitis, and celiac disease are very different conditions, affecting different areas of the intestines, treatment options are similar and mainly consist of diet modification, anti-inflammatories, and immunosuppressants.
In severe cases, sufferers use the restroom over 20 times a day and may require surgery to remove part of their intestine or colon. As you can imagine, symptoms of these disorders take a heavy toll on sufferer’s quality of life. Andrew, a 26-year-old RMS patient that suffers from ulcerative colitis underwent the Regenerative ColoTherapy.
“For three years, I suffered from diarrhea, bleeding, painful stomach cramping, and being completely drained of energy,” Andrew said. “90 days following the RCT procedure, I noticed considerable improvements in my symptoms. My bowel movements went from upwards of 20 times a day to less than five. This procedure was invaluable and in my opinion the best option for treating this disease.”
As stem cells have the ability to differentiate into many different types of tissues and have been found to be immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory in nature, their intrinsic healing capacity is highly beneficial for sufferers of celiac disease and IBD. RMS has harnessed the natural properties of stem cells in the form of Regenerative ColoTherapy, a unique stem cell treatment that utilizes stem cells from a patient’s own body for the regeneration and repair of damaged tissues in the intestines and colon.
