Interested in Stem Cell Injections? Increase your Chance for Success

By Dr. Noémie Long
August 2021

Stem cell injections are one of the most interesting options for those seeking help with chronic joint issues. People from all over are resting their hopes on this expensive and potentially life-altering procedure and its success. There are all kinds of stem cell injection and varied opinions about which form of regenerative therapy is the best. The point of this article is not to opine on which option is best, but rather to provide ideas for how to make your stem cells go the extra mile, improving your chances for success.

Think about if you were blind folded, taken from your home, and dropped in the middle of the Short Hills Mall during the busiest time of the year. As you opened your eyes, you’d see people running in all directions. Where should you go? Similar things happen with stem cells. They are injected into the body with the hopes that they survive, end up in the right place, and then become the right kind of cells. Quite often stem cells get carried to the most metabolically active sites and that means the heart and lungs which may not be where they are needed.

In cases where stem cells fail, a multitude of factors play into the failure. Did the stem cells go to the right spot (the knee versus the lungs)? Did they become the right kind of cell, or did they not survive? If your toxic body chemistry or a neurochemical shift caused the degeneration in the first place, did the new cells suffer the same fate as the original joints/cells? As an analogy, if we put roses in the garden and forget to water them, what will happen? The soil will dry up killing the roses. And if we plant new roses in the sandy dry soil, will they survive?

If you’re thinking about stem cell injections, how can you stack the odds in favor of success? The best answer is to be properly evaluated. See a provider who specializes in Neurochemical Shifts. The more pre-injection groundwork you lay, the better your odds of success. What else can you do? You can consider laser treatments before and after stem cell injections. We use the Erchonia FX635 laser which contains an advanced frequency that increases the probability that stem cells will go to the “right” place. It’s a safe and painless option with no side effects.

I’m happy to answer questions about Neurochemical Shifts and prepping your body pre-injections. If you need additional information about stem cells, cord blood or PRP, our Dr. Marc Funderlich, who has worked in regenerative medicine clinics, could be an excellent resource.

Light Therapy NJ

The Healing Power of Light

The Healing Power of Light
by Dr. Jason Sonners

We are light sensitive beings. Our bodies convert sunlight into Vitamin D. UV rays can make our skin tan or burn. Dermatologists use light to treat precancerous cells or encourage skin peeling. In surgical centers, light can be used as a cutting tool. So why not use light as a therapeutic healing tool? We actually have a broad spectrum of laser and LED light devices with various uses and strengths at our disposal depending on what benefits we want to attain.

Most importantly, light can be used to attack inflammation in our bodies which, not properly treated, ultimately leads to many chronic illnesses. These include chronic pain, heart disease, stroke, cancer, further autoimmunity and many more. Whether we’re discussing trauma, concussion (TBI), or the varieties of arthritis and degenerative brain conditions: (Dementia, Alzheimer’s), we believe inflammation is a key factor causing the associated pain, brain fog, loss of normal function and decreased quality of life.

So at Core Therapies, we’ve decided to double down on that belief and bring new equipment and staff into our office to help us combat inflammation with every available tool. And that often begins with light! “Light Therapy” – or PhotoBioModulation Therapy (PBMT) – means using laser and/or LED light in order to help improve cellular function. In addition to fighting inflammation, light can be used therapeutically in an attempt to reduce pain, improve skin health and complexion, increase our ability to produce energy and much more. We now have a number of Light Therapy devices in our office: Class 2, 3 and 4 handheld lasers, Violet handheld laser, Far Infrared Sauna and the only full body PBMT Bed in New Jersey.  Here’s a little bit about each to give you the basics:  Class 2, 3 and 4 Handheld Lasers – These handheld lasers are used one-on-one in the treatment rooms. Depending on the issues we’re addressing, we would determine which light or laser device to employ. These pieces of equipment can be used to relieve muscle, joint and back pain, heal tendons and ligaments and even be used to promote healing after a stroke or concussion as well as other brain conditions.  Violet Handheld Laser – Violet light is used to help with acne, sinus and other skin- based or gastrointestinal infection/bacterial imbalances.  Far Infrared Sauna – Far infrared waves penetrate the body to activate our sweat glands. By using light and heat, the sauna helps cells detoxify and improves circulation.  Full Body Light Therapy – This is somewhat similar to the handheld devices, but in a full body treatment. It is used as a full body cellular recovery tool – an excellent way to boost whole body healing, promote exercise recovery, combat systemic inflammatory conditions and more.

We are committed to staying ahead of the curve and bringing our patients the newest, highest quality treatment options that are grounded deeply in proven methods of healing recovery. Please ask us questions if you’d like to know more or try some of our new pieces of equipment.
