WHAT IS INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE?
Integrative Orthopedic Medicine is a heterogeneous mixture of cells including cytokines, scaffolding growth factors, hyaluronic acid, and various proteins to help with orthopedic conditions such as osteoarthritis. These are essential biomolecules our aging bodies need for regeneration.
With the help of the state-of-the-art treatments we offer at Body Systems Wellness in Glendale, CA, the body’s natural restorative processes can be stimulated to resolve pain, inflammation, and so much more. The goal of integrative medicine is to enhance the body’s natural ability to heal itself.
A healthy body should have the power to heal from an injury without any outside intervention. However, in many cases, due to age, disease, or an unhealthy lifestyle, help is needed and integrative medicine is an extremely viable option.
HOW DOES INTEGRATIVE MEDICINE WORK?
Integrative Medicine can address a wide variety of body-health issues that come about as a result of injuries, diseases, and the aging process offering exciting new opportunities for healing and recovery without surgery and little to no downtime.
When people think of Integrative Medicine, it is often associated with stem cells and their cell count in a product to determine treatment effectiveness. This is a common misconception where in reality Integrative Medicine actually involves quite a bit more than just stem cells and their cell counts to be effective in the healing process.
What Integrative Medicine does at Body Systems Wellness, is serve as the vehicle delivering signal molecules to the patient’s own integrative capabilities and enable them to heal the body. These signal molecules (aka chemical messengers) are comprised of growth factors, cellular scaffolding, cytokines, proteins and hyaluronic acids that act as integrative agents in the body.
