Most of current treatments for autoimmune diseases aim at suppressing the overactive immune system. This can be done in a variety of ways, the most popular of which is steroids.
Steroids can be effective in stopping your immune system from attacking the healthy cells in your body, but the adverse effect is that it also halts them from attacking harmful cells that lead to illness.
Unlike the more controversial embryonic stem cells which are harvested from in-vitro fertilizations, autologous stem cells are taken from the patient’s own body.
Known as adult mesenchymal stem cells, these are naturally released by the body when inflammation occurs due to injury. These cells serve multiple functions, including:
If the cells are being harvested from adipose tissues, they come from the sub-dermal layer mini liposuction. This procedure is a similar, but gentler, version of liposuction.
The samples are placed in a centrifuge which spins them around at high velocities to separate out the stem cells. These cells will then be reintroduced to your body through a series of sessions spread out over several weeks, so it’s best to start right away.

Autologous Adipose Enriched Stem Cells can help reverse and repair some of the world's most common medical diseases. Dr Asim Rahman has perfected the Treatment and Recovery process to help patients suffering from some common medical conditions such as, Osteoarthritis, Pulmonary Disease, and autoimmune disorders as well as some Cosmetic Procedures like Face Lifts and Anti-Aging.
Below you'll find our 4 step treatment procedure explained in detail:
It all starts with a local anesthetic to the abdominal area. Then perform a manual mini liposuction procedure. The amount of fat that is extracted depends on which treatment we are performing. In most cases we only need 200cc of fat. The physician will take it from both sides of the abdomen to ensure proper distribution. Once the fat required has been harvested it will be handed to our Tech to begin processing. The Fat Harvesting process has taken roughly 30 minutes.
Each container of harvested fat will now be handled by our Tech who has been carefully trained by clinical personnel from the manufacturer. In some cases not all the containers of fat will be processed as some of the fat harvested may be needed to complete certain other cosmetic procedures. The containers of harvested fat are then spun using a patented centrifuge. This piece of medical equipment is specifically set to spin at varying speeds for varying time lengths. The end result is that we get a container of fat concentrated at the top and millions of stem cells on the bottom. Our Tech, carefully extracts only the stem cells from the test tube using a closed system transfer to eliminate any outside environment contamination. The stem cells are now ready to be enriched and transfused. The Separation process takes roughly 50 minutes.
Dr Rahman continually researches and practices autologous tissue harvest and re-implantation techniques searching for the most refined method to successfully use soft tissue transfer for her patients. With the combination of stem cells to enhance the graft take; Dr Rahman has perfected the re-injection technique to maximize the fat retention, for longer lasting, fuller results.
Adult stem cells offer the tantalizing possibility of an automatic, self-repairing treatment for diseases caused by the damage and loss of neurons in the brain. The use of stem cells for neurodegenerative diseases has been widely studied and become of high interest due to the results demonstrated. Clinical applications of stem cells for Alzheimer disease, Parkinson disease, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, and multiple sclerosis will increase in the coming years as the application of stem cells becomes more and more promising.
A new era of orthopedic therapies encompass techniques and principles using cellular and molecular based strategies. One direction utilizing these strategies is the use of self-derived, autologous cell composites. Clinical data suggests that use of these composites provides numerous capabilities related to tissue regeneration. The range of therapeutic applications is vast with the ability of regenerative cells to repair and regenerate many types of tissues. Some of the Orthopedic indications that have shown significant response are:
In recent years, Cardiologists & Pulmonologists have initiated research and the employment of new principles of cell and molecular therapies to treat their patients. They are most interested in the therapeutic applications of regenerative cells to repair and regenerate damaged tissues.
Current research suggests these new, progressive non-surgical techniques, to potentially repair tissue holds significant promise in the practice of cardiology.
The human cell contains bioactive proteins that have the capability to stimulate soft tissue healing and are capable of promoting the development, and possible, repair of blood vessels, promote growth of new epithelial tissue and can stimulate healing to enhance the physiological process at the site of the injury.
Draw Blood A registered nurse will take blood from the patient to begin the process. The blood is spun in a special centrifuge to separate blood components and get a concentration of platelets which contain growth factors. This is usually referred to as Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP). The tech will now remove these platelets, which contain growth factors, and add them to the stem cells . This entire process takes no longer than 15 minutes.
The enriched stem cells are now ready to be transplanted to the client's body. The procedure to introduce the stem cells into the body depends on what condition we are treating. In most cases the stem cells are fed directly into the patient's blood stream using an intravenous drip. In osteoarthritis and orthopedic cases, enriched stem cells are injected directly into affected areas like shoulders or knees. These patients will also receive an intravenous drip. This process takes roughly 1-3 hours to complete.
Autoimmune diseases are conditions in which the patient’s immune system generates cellular and antibody responses to substances and tissues normally present in the body.
Currently, autoimmune conditions are treated with immune suppressive agents such as steroids and other pharmaceutical agents. Despite inducing temporary improvement, these approaches possess the possibility of long-term adverse effects, as well as need for life-long treatment.
Today, new treatments and advances in research are giving new hope to people affected by these diseases. With stem cell therapy we are able to regenerate some of these tissues to mitigate the symptoms for a long-term relief. These procedures may help patients who don’t respond to typical drug treatment.
Not only does stem cell therapy help treat chronic diseases, it is also very beneficial in improving the overall health and wellbeing of a person.
With the help of the latest in technological advancements, regenerative medicine can now help you to effectively manage the aging process through PRP Therapy and stem cell treatment for anti-aging.
Our closed process helps supply your body with more concentrated levels of stem cells which can help naturally treat the areas of distress, effectively slow down the aging process.
Therapeutic levels of Stem cells have proven to help enhance your mood, energy levels, sexual health, cardiovascular system, immune system and memory. Stem cells can help you get rid of nagging injuries and pains by helping your body heal naturally without the need for surgery or any invasive procedures. For most, they notice the treatment working though significantly less joint and body aches. Unlike before the stem cell treatment for Anti-Aging, where they would easily get tired, cell therapy can revive your vitality, rejuvenate your mind and body. Apart from the improvements in bodily functions, cell therapies can also give you instant aesthetic improvements. The skin usually becomes more elastic and supple and fewer wrinkles can also be achieved.
