Stem cells have long been in the news for the possible treatments of many diseases – most notably multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy and Parkinson’s, but stem cells are also being used as an anti-aging treatment. While there is always going to be controversy around the use of stem cells, the truth of the matter is they are helpful when dealing with a variety of diseases and health issues – and in anti-aging, stem cells have improved the quality of life in many patients. Stems cells in the realm of anti-aging has been shown to improve:

  • Energy levels
  • Work capacity
  • Gait and posture
  • Mental focus
  • Sharper attention and short-term memory
  • Emotional balance

Those using stem cells in the traditional sense of anti-aging see an improvement in:

  • Skin color
  • Skin texture
  • Tissue elasticity

One of the most important ways in which to use stem cells is for the improvement of the quality of life. No one wants to age, but it’s an unpleasant fact of life. To help manage age-related diseases and symptoms, EmCell, located in Kiev, Ukraine, offers stem cell transplantation for patients with various health issues. Patients travel from around the world to EmCell to undergo stem cell therapy to deal with the following disorders and diseases:

  • Arthritis
  • Disorders with the gastrointestinal tract
  • Diabetes mellitus
  • Hypertension
  • Chronic bronchitis
  • Ischemic heart disease

Founded in 1994, the EmCell clinic offers thousands of patients from all over a chance to improve their quality of life with stem cell transplants – the clinic has performed more than 6,500 transplants of stem cells since opening. EmCell was featured in a BBC documentary, which called the facility the “Last Hope Clinic” as many cases treated within the facility were complicated and a last effort for treatment.

Patients travel from many countries to gain a renewed sense of life with stem cell transplantation – and costs are substantially lower in the Ukraine as opposed to other locations, such as the United States, even though the methods and technology used at EmCell are modern and patented by the United States, Russia and the Ukraine.

Michelle traveled to Kiev to undergo an anti-aging stem cell treatment and had an amazing experience. “I had really bad discoloration areas to my bilateral upper cheek areas on my face.
This is almost completely gone…It's amazing! I have been comparing pictures of myself taken three months ago and even two weeks ago, and the results are amazing! I look younger today, than even two weeks ago. This anti-aging is really working. I even [was] told I look younger now than in the pictures. I was so happy I wanted to do back flips! The trip to Kiev was a trip of a lifetime. The treatment that we received, ranging from care from the physicians to the drivers taking us [back and forth], was just remarkable. The time and effort that is given to each family is well construed and the result is an amazing trip with the most wonderful people in the world.”

Patients who need treatment for age-related issues and diseases are ideal candidates for stem cell transplantation – and with the reduced price tag, it makes financial sense. Medical tourism is a leading industry in which patients receive comparable and quality care without going into debt to receive such procedures.
