What is the best way to boost healing and control inflammation? When tested in vitro and in human clinical trials, adipose derived stem cells (ADSCs) and the proteins derived from them have consistently been shown to decrease and control inflammation while guiding and improving healing. This is why ADSCs HAPPY of are often the stem cell type of choice for wound healing and skin remodeling, as well as serious autoimmuneand inflammation-related diseases and disorders, including Crohn’s disease, radiation-induced fibrosis, ulcerative colitis, allergic airway inflammation, autoimmune arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease and lupus dermatitis. ADSCs are a type of mesenchyal stem cell, or MSC, that exist within the fat tissue just under the dermis in a layer called the hypodermis. from the staff of the South Lake Medical Directory! 08/6/17 When the skin is injured, these cells just below the dermis are the first responders. They orchestrate healing and are capable of turning into all of the cell types that compose human skin. Other sources of MSCs include, but are not limited to, liposuction aspirate (fat), bone marrow aspirate, umbilical cord blood and placenta. The healing properties of ADSCs and the proteins they produce have been extensively studied, particularly in regards to the skin. All properly isolated and cultured MSCs, regardless of source, produce remarkably similar protein profiles. This means that the cytokines, growth factors, immunomodulatory factors, antiinflammatory proteins and other signaling molecules produced by MSCs from different source tissues, such as bone marrow, adipose tissue or umbilical cord blood, are more or less the same. In fact, the main differences between the quality and amount of proteins produced by MSCs that are captured for topical use has a lot to do with the technical expertise of the scientists culturing the cells. Differences in cell isolation, cell culture conditions, protein purification, formulation and delivery method can greatly affect the quality of the final product. Stem cell growth factors fight against inflammation and redness, and improve texture, pigmentation problems, sunspots, melasma and wrinkles. It has even been shown to shrink pores. Amazing new technology is now available as a serum for daily use and as a stem cell facial at select spas. It’s Not You ... It’s Your Hormones by Lynne Byron Female Hormone Consultant Olympia Compounding Pharmacy 800-213-4081 Hormones play a huge part in weight gain and weight loss. As early as a woman’s 30s, hormones begin to fluctuate. The estrogen is there, but the progesterone produced by the ovaries begins to decrease. This is known as estrogen dominance — too much estrogen and not enough progesterone. This is an imbalance, and women may start to notice things like irregular menstrual cycles, skipping menstrual cycles, heavier bleeding, more clotting and more cramps. A woman may also start to experience more premenstrual syndrome symptoms such as bloating, irritability, headaches, anxiety, difficulty sleeping and weight gain. PMS is a hormone imbalance. A woman is not birth control deficient or Prozac deficient; she is hormone deficient. When too much estrogen is present, the body stores it in the fatty tissue. Usually, this is in the midsection. At this stage, a woman can work out for hours and eat like a bird, but the weight will not budge. In this case, progesterone is the key. Once this balance is restored to the woman’s physiological norm, the effort she puts into losing weight will pay off. During a woman’s 50s, hormones decline even more until none are left. When menstruation has stopped for a year or more, it is called menopause. This brings about an entirely different hormone balance problem. Estrogen and progesterone are no longer present. There are estrogen receptors on almost every cell in the body, including the skin. Now whatever estrogen a woman’s body can hold on to is being stored in the midsection, because her body is in an estrogen-starvation mode. Both estrogen and progesterone need to be put back in balance for the gamut of menopausal symptoms to be quieted. Weight gain is one of those symptoms. In both cases progesterone is a very important key. It is the forgotten hormone. It is the hormone that affects our metabolism. It also is the hormone that tells the estrogen not to be stored in the fatty tissue. Progesterone is a natural diuretic and a natural antidepressant. It regulates mood and improves sleep, which are very beneficial to weight loss. So, in a nutshell, it’s not you, it’s your hormones! n
