Warning: Conventional Medicine Is Failing to Treat Pain. Here Is What You Should Do Instead

Mar 22, 2022

If you’re one of the millions of sufferers of chronic pain or chronic diseases, then you already know what most of your peers (and medical professionals) seem to miss:

Chronic disease can shorten your lifespan, yes, but it can also destroy the quality of life you experience when you’re forced to live with one.

And conventional medicine and methods simply aren’t cutting it anymore, often contributing to bloated health care costs, long recovery periods, and even severe limitations on what you can and can’t do – even after a surgical intervention!

The landscape of healthcare becomes even more frightening and serious when you consider that:

  • Nearly half of all kids and adolescents have at least one chronic health condition.

  • 90% of the $3.5 trillion we spend on health in the U.S. goes toward managing these chronic conditions.

Maybe the worst outcome of all is how we’ve come to view things like chronic pain and invasive treatment options – as though it’s something normal, commonplace, and unavoidable.

But, amazing advancements in the medical field have expanded health care options using regenerative medicine – and the results are remarkable.

From improved healing time to effective, long-term elimination of pain across issues like sports injuries, fibromyalgia, musculoskeletal disorders like arthritis, and so much more, regenerative medicine is beating out conventional medical treatments in every arena.

Understanding Regenerative vs. Conventional Medicine

Many different methods exist in conventional medicine to relieve pain and control the symptoms of a particular condition. From surgeries to administering pharmaceutical drugs to counteract specific symptoms, conventional medicine does a perfectly adequate job.

But, patients are often left wondering: “Is this what I’ll have to deal with for the rest of my life?” And that’s the main issue – when you spend time, resources, and treatment methods on controlling the symptoms, do you ever get a chance to actually heal the root of the problem?

The answer is obvious from the rising rates of chronic illnesses and pain from chronic disorders like degenerative disc disease, back pain, spinal cord injuries, TBIs (traumatic brain injuries), arthritis, and many more inflammatory medical issues.

Conventional medicine also faces two major limitations: Treatments often require surgical intervention, which then comes with its own set of side effects that have to be “managed” with pharmaceutical drugs. Secondly, the positive effects of treatment options may eventually wear off or regress with time.

In contrast, regenerative medicine and its therapies are designed to eliminate both of these issues. The therapies under regenerative and functional medicine support the body’s self-healing mechanisms, aiming to replace or regenerate human cells, tissues, and even organs, which then leads to a restoration of normal function.

Burn victims, for example, have better long-term outcomes with skin grafts powered by cell therapy. They experience no negative side effects, pain, or open wound development – all of which are realities faced by patients who opt for conventional skin grafts.

These proven, results-based therapies have undergone clinical applications with patients often experiencing a restoration in organ function, improved healing times, and an elimination of the root cause rather than masking or suppressing symptoms.

Top Reasons Why Regenerative Medicine Surpasses Conventional Medicine

Let’s take a look at the truth behind conventional medicine – and why regenerative medicine can help free the body’s natural healing abilities.

#1: Regenerative Medicine Is Effective Long-Term

The standard of healing outcomes for conventional medicine is often a lot lower than the results that regenerative medicine promises.

If pain returns or someone’s chronic condition regresses after improving after a while, it’s less than ideal – but conventional medicine professionals will often simply look to additional treatments or suggest alternate, more serious or escalated solutions.

So, long-term wellness is an ideal – but it’s not an expectation. And, more often than not, pain does return or a new set of symptoms crop up. With regenerative medicine, therapies aim to enhance the tissue, organ, or bodily system’s intrinsic regenerative capacity. And it does this by altering the environment through cell injections or turning on immune system modulations – which then trigger the body’s innate healing and repair mechanisms. This natural healing means cells or tissue won’t regress to their previous condition but simply continue improving.

That’s why regenerative medicine is effective in the long term.

#2: Regenerative Medicine Therapies Rely on the Body’s Natural Ability to Heal

To heal long-term, chronic conditions like heart disease, stroke, spinal injuries, diabetes, osteoarthritis, and more, you need a long-term solution. The symptoms of these chronic conditions can be managed with medical or medical devices, but they can’t be resolved.

So, instead of disease management, you need to choose options that will go beyond this baseline and will repair, regenerate, and restore body systems to their natural state of health and functionality.

As these therapies trigger cells’ natural, self-healing response, patient care across issues like treatments for lifelong degenerative and even disabling conditions becomes about getting back to wellness, and then maintaining optimal health and quality of life.

#3: Regenerative Medicine Opts for Natural Treatments Over Synthetic Options

Regenerative medicine involves a number of specific therapies – but what they all have in common is that they totally eschew synthetic pharmaceuticals as medication or surgical operative procedures that take a long time to heal – and often don’t completely restore a patient’s wellness, mobility, or health.

It’s actually essential for regenerative medicine to be natural, rather than synthetic, because these therapies are the best (and often only) way to jumpstart a cell’s, organ’s, or body system’s intrinsic healing ability.

How to Find Out If Regenerative Medicine Is Right for Your Condition

The main reason why regenerative medicine is as effective as it is for a variety of conditions is because it takes a total-body, holistic approach to wellness, healing, and health. It’s inherently therapeutic and rehabilitative.

This means it works well with other rehabilitation modalities including functional medicine, which looks at the way the systems of your whole body interact and affect one another. If you’re struggling with chronic conditions like skin issues, bowel and bladder problems, hernias, and even joint-related mobility issues, functional medicine, in tandem with regenerative medicine, can help you address the root cause of these disruptions across body systems.

Masking symptoms or treating them so that they subside is simply not the same as supporting the body’s ability to reverse and restore its own health and wellness. And that’s why these solutions can’t be as effective as long-term success provided by regenerative medicine.
