Perfect Pair: Ketogenic Diet & Stem Cell Therapy

Jul 31, 2019

The ketogenic diet is one of the most popular diet programs in today’s world. When you’re on a keto diet, you’ll need to follow a high fat, low carbohydrate plan. It’s certainly one of the most effective weight loss plans around, and recent studies have shown that it can help with other things as well.

Researchers have found that the keto diet helped control epileptic seizures in children, and showed promise in reversing kidney disease in patients who were suffering from type 2 and type 1 diabetes.

Stem cell treatment for diabetes is one of the most pressing concerns of the National Stem Cell Institute. NSI nutritionists and researchers have found that individuals who went on a ketogenic diet were more receptive to stem cell therapy compared to those who didn’t. More importantly, there were findings that a properly-planned diet consisting of low carbohydrates and high fat can contribute to the wellness of patients suffering from Parkinson’s disease, traumatic brain injuries and others.

The question is, why is keto proving to be a valuable ally when followed alongside stem cell therapy?

To answer, we take a closer look at how the ketogenic diet works and how it coincides with the mechanism of stem cells.

Ketogenic Diet

The term ‘keto’ comes from ketone, a source of energy our bodies can readily use. The ketogenic diet induces a state of ketosis, where ketones flow abundantly within. In this condition, the cells acquire energy largely via the ketones that are produced when an individual has his blood sugar lowered and fat levels raised. Without carbohydrates, the ketones look to fat stores for energy.

Clinical studies have shown that cancer cells do not thrive in a ketogenic environment, largely because the cancerous cells can’t consume ketones. With little fuel to sustain them, these cancer cells starve and die out. This is especially helpful for patients who are suffering from cancer.

Stem Cell Therapy

Stem cell therapy uses stem cells derived from adipose fat to bring about natural regeneration of the tissue, muscle and organs.

MSCs, or mesenchymal stem cells, are commonly used in both experimental and current medicine. The introduction of adipose-derived cells have opened up the world of regenerative medicine like no other. Stem cells derived from bone marrow are similar to those taken from adipose fat in that they are both considered ‘adult’ stem cells, which are naturally produced throughout an individual’s life.

Adipose stem cells are poised to change the whole regenerative medicine landscape due to three factors – they’re potent, easy to harvest, and are innumerable.

The Promise of Adipose Stem Cells

Where do adipose stem cells come from? These types of stem cells are collected just underneath a patient’s skin and inside the fatty layer. The term ‘adipose’ is derived from the layer of fat which shares the same name. Scientists have made a significant breakthrough when they found out that adipose fat is an excellent source of stem cells. Regenerative medicine hit a trifecta in adipose stem cells because, 1) this type of stem cell is very abundant, 2) collecting them wasn’t as invasive as bone marrow extraction, and 3) adipose cells were very potent.

As a whole, stem cells are very promising in terms of healing and regenerating the patient’s body. Their mechanism of action involves ‘differentiating’, or turning into various cell types depending on what the body needs. In short, they can become nerve cells, neurons, cartilage, muscle cells, blood vessels, bone cells, skin cells and more. Stem cells assist with the rejuvenation, regeneration and regrowth of injured, damaged and aged cells.

Before adipose stem cells were discovered, scientists and doctors had to collect mesenchymal stem cells from bone marrow using an invasive maneuver. With stem cells derived from adipose fat, though, researchers could easily collect samples from the patient on the abdomen, buttock or thigh section. Moreover, samples may be taken anytime due to the abundance of these types of cells.

Patients won’t have to stay in hospitals overnight, or be subject to heavy anesthesia when they undergo medical procedures related to stem cell therapy.

Adipose stem cells have been shown to be effective in treating many chronic conditions, illnesses and injuries. In high concentrations, stem cell therapy can be safe and truly effective.

    Bone marrow harvesting now can be done in 10 minutes or less – with no hospital stay and or anesthesia. This article makes it out that bone marrow is painful and more dangerous which is not the case not with the new FDA only device.

    Are there any Stem cell regenerative practices in Portugal? I’m already a fan of Keto and intermittent fasting. Now I just need to find a stem cell practitioner in Portugal or even Spain at a stretch.

    • THM Team

      For those who are outside the US, we have international connections and may be able to refer you to a specialist in your area. A simple Google search (“stem cell clinic” + your region) will pull up a list of treatment centers near you. Always consult your own health care provider to ensure your care is in the best possible hands.
