According to the World Psoriasis Day Consortium, 125 million people across the world—and more than 8 million Americans—suffer from psoriasis. Psoriasis may appear to be a superficial skin disease. However, 60% of psoriasis patients report that the disease creates significant difficulties in their daily routines and considerably decreases their quality of life.
Not only does this skin disease cause itchy and scaly patches to appear on your skin, but individuals with this disease also experience higher rates of other diseases such as metabolic syndrome, depression, and cardiovascular diseases.
There are some treatments available to help you deal with the symptoms of this bothersome skin disease. However, most of them are superficial and not very long-lasting, and are often accompanied by unforeseen side effects. If you are looking for a way to get to the root cause of your health complications, stem cell therapy for psoriasis may be the answer you are searching for.
What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a relatively common disease that impacts your joints, lower back, scalp, and other regions of your body. This chronic disease does not currently have a known cure, but certain treatments and therapies—especially those that are regenerative in nature—can help you better manage your symptoms.
What Are the Symptoms of Psoriasis?
If you’re experiencing any of the following conditions, you may be suffering from psoriasis:
- Dry and cracked skin
- Bleeding skin
- Itching, sore, or burning skin
- Red patches of skin covered with scales
- Stiff and swollen joints
It is important to note that these symptoms may not remain at all times. Psoriasis occurs in cycles, each typically lasting a few weeks or months. After each cycle, the condition may go into remission—only to return again later. Though there is no known cure for this disease, regenerative therapies can help you battle your symptoms and get on the road to recovery.
Will Stem Cell Therapy Help Psoriasis?
GIOSTAR has conducted extensive research demonstrating the potential benefits of stem cells in managing psoriasis. Research shows that stem cell therapy can help prevent or even treat psoriasis. Stem cells are effective because they enhance your body’s ability to heal itself. With this minimally invasive procedure, you won’t have to worry about experiencing the complicated side effects that often come with medication, surgery, and other traditional medical interventions.
What is Psoriatic Arthritis?
If you suffer from psoriasis, and the disease has been ongoing for years, you have a higher chance of developing psoriatic arthritis. This disease occurs when your body’s immune system begins to attack healthy cells and your immune response leads to inflammation in your joints.
Joint pain and swelling on your fingertips and spine are common symptoms of this disease and just like psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis flares up and then goes into remission. There is also no known cure for psoriatic arthritis currently.
The good news is that once again, regenerative therapies can help you manage the pain of this inflammatory joint disease.
Can Stem Cell Therapy Help Psoriatic Arthritis?
A recent study demonstrated the potential therapeutic value of stem cells for patients who suffer from psoriatic arthritis. This investigation further revealed that stem cell therapy is especially beneficial for the patients who are unable to tolerate standard medical interventions.
