Boca Raton, FL, September 11, 2009 --(PR.com
)-- BodyLogicMD, a national network of bioidentical hormone physicians specializing in the treatment of the symptoms of perimenopause, menopause and andropause, has announced their patients will now have access to the latest technology in adult and cord blood stem cell collection and storage through industry leader AssureImmune. The alliance between the companies gives BodyLogicMD patients the option to go beyond balancing their hormone levels and take prevention to the next level by banking their healthy stem cells for future use should they or a family member develop a disease later in life or want to take advantage of emerging regenerative therapies for an increasing number of diseases.
“Our goal is to provide our patients options to help them become more proactive with their medical choices in order to live a longer, better life, so adding access to the most technologically advanced medical procedure is a natural fit for BodyLogicMD,” says Alicia Stanton, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, BodyLogicMD. “Now, not only do we have the ability to treat an individual’s current needs, but also provide them with a way to help treat diseases associated with aging and aid in regenerating the immune system, tissues and even organs through AssureImmune’s adult stem cell storage. This technology is truly incredible.”
BodyLogicMD doctors work with each patient to complete a comprehensive review of aging-related symptoms that often point to hormone imbalance, as well as collecting medical, family and personal histories. In addition, patients undergo a range of laboratory testing, such as blood, saliva and urine, and ongoing evaluations throughout the treatment plan, which consists of a combination of elements, such as bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT), fitness, nutrition and prescription-grade supplements.
AssureImmune offers the additional benefit of “bioinsurance”; the collection and banking of stem cells while they are potent and healthy.
“Stem cell therapies using cells from bone marrow, cord blood and adult blood have been available for more than 40 years to treat debilitating conditions like leukemia and immune system dysfunctions,” says Connie Araps, Ph.D., AssureImmune Vice President of Strategic Planning and Business Development. “Today, there are over 2100 U.S. clinical trials using adult stem cells to treat a much broader range of diseases and conditions including solid tumor cancer, cardiovascular disease, autoimmune disease, diabetes and more. Stem cells age just as we do, so it is critically important for individuals to bank early, while they are healthy” AssureImmune is registered with the FDA.
AssureImmune – a science-based adult stem cell preservation leader – provides its clients with private stem cell collection and preservation services worldwide. The company specializes in collecting, testing and banking an individual’s own healthy adult stem cells from the peripheral blood of children (children must weigh more than 80 lbs. to collect) and adults and from the cord blood of newborn infants. AssureImmune works to assure that the client’s adult and cord blood stem cells will always be available for future use sustaining life and battling disease.
