What is Regenerative Medicine?

Happy CoupleRegenerative medicine stems from the word regeneration. Regeneration and rejuvenation of our body’s anatomy and physiology is something that has been ignored by traditional methods of medicine.

Up to this point, medical doctors have been treating patients’ ailments and problems by simply reacting to specific symptoms and having knee-jerk reactions to mask the given problem or symptom that is presented by the patient. This method of practicing medicine works well with some acute process medical problems.

However, when it comes to chronic issues or vague symptoms a physician has to be more comprehensive in the workup of such patients. A “chronic issue” is a problem that has been affecting the patient for a period of more than six months.

The field of regenerative medicine understands that many chronic issues, occur because of the bodies WEAR and TEAR and dys-balancing of the endogenous physiology and hormonal balancing that happens with regular environmental and aging effects that most of us are oblivious about.
