Stem Cells: What are they?
The human body is an exquisite machine that can flawlessly execute diverse functions for us to live. Many types of cells perform specialized functions: brain cells, bone cells, skin cells, blood cells, and more. Groups of specialized cells form tissues that form organs—for example, the liver, lungs, and heart—each with a particular job within the body.
But how are such specialized cells formed? We know that human reproduction starts with a single cell: the fertilized egg or zygote. The zygote divides itself, originating other cells that later go through a transformation process called differentiation. Differentiation is the process that allows the new cells to specialize and perform a specific function in the body.
The new cells that haven’t differentiated into specialized ones are called Stem Cells; they have the ability to divide and generate copies of themselves or differentiate into specialized cells an unlimited number of times. Other body cells can only replicate a few times before they die.
Stem Cells can be classified according to their origin:
- Adult Stem Cells: present in adult individuals to replace sick cells or repair damaged tissue.
- Embryonic Stem Cells: found in embryos, they develop into all the fetus’s tissues.
- Perinatal Stem Cells: present in tissues discarded after a baby’s birth (placenta, umbilical cord, and amniotic membrane and fluid)
The Renue Medical Center & Laboratory has the most technologically advanced medical facilities and equipment, supported by systematically proven medical practices and a track record of successful treatments.
Onsite production affords total control of the entire chain of custody from the laboratory to the patient for all cellular products.
This guarantees no loss in bioavailability – In other words, we don’t need to freeze our cells for transport, so we preserve them better, avoiding up to a 30%+ loss during transportation.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT)
The Renue Difference
The Renue Centre has the latest multi-place Hyperbaric Chamber capable of treating four patients at one time; it is the only facility in Mexico that requires an emergency-trained nurse to accompany every group of patients during hyperbaric treatments.
The Renue Centre also has a helipad; therefore, the facilities provide care not only for anti-aging, Stem Cell activation, and wound care treatments but also for diving accidents, tissue burns, Parkinson’s, autism, and other disorders and diseases.
Advantages of higher oxygen levels
- Stimulating the production of Stem Cells and new blood vessels
- Strengthening the Immune System
- Healing of wounds and damaged tissues
- Anti-microbial balancing effect
- Reducing fatigue, inflammation and swelling
- Reversing hypoxia and nerve/ischemic brain injuries
- Breaks down senescent cells
Why is it done?
- Your body’s tissues need an adequate supply of oxygen to function. When tissue is injured, it requires even more oxygen to survive.
- Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases the amount of oxygen your blood can carry. With repeated scheduled treatments, the temporary extra high oxygen levels encourage normal tissue oxygen levels, even after the therapy is completed.

HOURS OF OPERATION
Monday – Friday (9 am – 5 pm)
Saturday (9 am- 2 pm)
During the first minutes of the therapy, called “diving” stage, the patients feel the pressure in their ears, just like the pressure changes experienced on a plane during take off or similar to driving down a mountain road.
One session of HBOT lasts generally 1.5 to 2 hours, although it varies from patient to patient. Most of the patients receive one session a day.
The most common side effect is the effect of the pressure change in the ear cavity. This is not a serious issue and it can be prevented through pressure equalization methods.
