Regenerative Medicine


Regenerative medicine refers to therapies that repair, restore, and regenerate damaged tissues. These therapies represent a significant advancement from traditional ones, which only offer symptom relief as a proverbial “band-aid.”

Regenerative procedures come in two forms: requiring a biological harvest from the patient (bone marrow or adipose tissue) or an external source (e.g., amniotic fluid/membrane or umbilical cord blood/tissue).

Our regenerative medicine promotes the repair of diseased, dysfunctional, or injured tissues using these procedures. In our clinic, they are used through IV therapies for the restoration of the scalp and penis and penis as part of a procedure for hair loss and erectile dysfunction.

What do they contain?

Known as the “products of conception” or “postnatal tissue”, the regenerative materials from amniotic and umbilical tissue include the following:

The primary function of these materials – to support the growth and health of the fetus- lies outside the scope of the laboratory guide. However, many of these functions provided during fetal growth translate into patient benefits during regenerative procedures, such as preventing infection and tissue growth. These include collagen, tendon, lung, kidney, heart, etc. 

Research done on these products of conception have shown the multitude of benefits that these materials contain:

These components all act together as a “orchestra” of benefits to help the patient.

FDA Regulations:

None of the biological materials previously mentioned come from “aborted fetuses.” The babies are not involved in the acquisition process after separating the biological material- typically discarded- from their bodies.

These use of embryonic stem cells in the US are legally prohibited. There is no fetal tissue, no cloning and all donors are consented and screened according to FDA regulations.

What conditions benefit from their use?

The list of conditions that may benefit from amniotic/umbilical procedures is extensive. However, the biologics are not FDA-approved, and studies are not large enough to state that stem cell therapy is a definitive treatment for any condition.

The FDA regulates these biologics, so they may be used where physicians deem them safe and useful. Our disclaimer is consistent: No treatments mentioned here have been evaluated by the FDA. As with any medical treatment, Wellness Architects and the labs we buy the material from do not guarantee any particular outcome. The FDA has evaluated or approved no treatment protocol or specific biologic indication.

Our material was obtained from a laboratory that offers therapies under IRB Approved Protocols. These protocols are for the investigation of regenerative therapies using amniotic and umbilical cord tissue therapy for the following issues:

Our clinic combines these protocols with these materials and the PRP, where a blood sample is taken from the patient. This blood is placed into a kit and spun quickly for 10-15 minutes in a centrifuge machine, which separates the blood into several layers. The middle layer is termed the “buffy coat” and contains concentrated platelets, white blood cells, and 8-12 growth factors. PRP contains minimal stem cells, but we will obtain a helpful regenerative combination with the plasma taken from the patient and the material obtained from the lab with the stem cells.
