It is difficult to watch our neighbors and friends go through what has become the worst public health crisis in a century.

The fact is that much of Italy has been placed on lockdown. Public gatherings have been forbidden. Weddings, funerals, and baptisms have been canceled. Schools, museums, gyms, etc. - all closed.

Make no mistake, we must take steps to protect our health and communities. 

So, what can you do?

In the broadest sense, we have two lines of defense against ALL illness. 

#1. The first is to avoid anyone who might be ill - that means making the tough decision to skip public and family gatherings, because someone may actually be contagious long before they have symptoms. And if you have been exposed, self-quarantine, even if you feel okay.

#2. When it comes to your own immune system, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Uplevel your immunity. It supports you to stay well, avoid illness and recover faster and more fully if you do become sick - with anything. Your immune system is key. That means having enough of the key immunity builders.

Your immune system is the KEY to staying well and weathering any health crisis.

You must not grow complacent when it comes to your health, especially if you navigate other conditions like chronic illness, Diabetes or autoimmune disease.

Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) has TONS of value, no matter what your starting point.

According to recent studies, PRP regenerates damaged or lost adult lung tissue1 and has significant antimicrobial benefits2. Patients with Coronavirus die from complications of pneumonia and destruction of lung tissue.

 

What Does PRP Stand for in Medical Terms?

PRP means Platelet Rich Plasma. The fluid that makes up 55% of the body’s blood is called plasma. Plasma contains every component of the blood, including platelets and red and white blood cells. Platelets comprise about 10% of our blood’s cellular components, but are highly concentrated in PRP therapy.

 

How do I know if I’m a good candidate for a Platelet Rich Plasma Injection?

People who would not qualify for this process are individuals with a condition called Thrombocytopenia (low platelet levels), anyone with a history of certain types of cancer, and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding will not qualify.
The best way to know for sure is to call today and ask a professional.


What are PRP Injections?

This advanced medical therapy uses platelets and growth factors derived from the individuals own blood to speed recovery and promote healing of the injured tissue.  With a concentrated number of platelets, larger quantities of growth factors are released to stimulate your immune response. 

 

Are There Platelets in Plasma?

Plasma is the fluid that makes up 55% of blood. Circulating within the plasma are components like red blood cells, white blood cells, and the platelets that are used in Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy. The plasma itself is a rich composition of vital proteins.

Platelet Rich Plasma, then, is a powerful tool in accelerating the body’s natural healing abilities.

 

Is Platelet Rich Plasma Therapy Approved by FDA?

It’s a common misconception that the United States Food and Drug Administration oversees medical procedures like Platelet rich Plasma Therapy, when, in fact, the FDA does not regulate medical procedures. However, the FDA does have the authority to approve devices, like centrifuges, for the use of separating blood into its different components in the making of Platelet Rich Plasma. Our processing methods to produce Platelet Rich Plasma for therapy procedures are in full compliance with the FDA.

 

What Is PRP Injection Therapy?

Since the middle of the 1990’s, physicians have utilized Platelet Rich Plasma therapies for critical procedures like boosting healing for bones damage in spinal injuries. But it has also been used in cosmetic procedures to enhance post-surgical healing and even enhance the look of our skin. When sports doctors began using PRP Therapy in the therapeutic applications of injured athletes, its enormous advantage in speeding the body’s natural healing process came into the mainstream.

Often times various injuries and conditions need more proactive treatments that can help you make a faster and full recovery. PRP is a simple outpatient procedure.

Furthermore, PRP injection therapy can have long-term effects that are often felt immediately. How? The stem cells are quick to reproduce and continue to multiply in the affected area.

Platelets release bioactive proteins that enhance tissue regeneration and healing. PRP enhances the body’s natural immune system by 5 – 7 times.
