STEM CELL THERAPY: The future for thyroid health support?


Stem cell therapy is still very new in the medical sphere. As you’ll learn from this podcast discussion, it’s still experimental and not yet widely available.
Joy Kong MD says it’s the future of health and will, one day, be a part of regular health management.
This conversation is much broader than just how stem cell therapy could possibly be used as part of thyroid health management – although we do cover some specific thyroid questions too.
This conversation covers:
  • What stem cell therapy is
  • Different kinds of stem cells and ethical considerations.
  • The key functions of stem cell therapy (see below)
  • How stem cells could be used as part of thyroid support
  • Stem Cell therapy research
  • Stem cell therapy in the context of anti-aging
  • How stem cell therapy is administered
  • Benefits of stem cell therapy both systemically and localised

The key mechanisms/functions of stem cell therapy:

  1. Anti-inflammatory
  2. Modulates the immune system
  3. Anti-fibrotic
  4. Salvages damaged cells
  5. Mitochondrial transfer
  6. Angiodemic
  7. Antimicrobial

Please note that no claims are being made by Dr Kong in this podcast.
