Regenerative Medicine

What is regenerative medicine?

Regenerative medicine is a medical specialty focused on supporting your body’s efforts in regenerating healthier tissue to replace diseased or damaged tissue. It’s a fairly new area of medicine with many possibilities for promoting health and wellness. Bonnie S. Friehling, MD, has been providing holistic health care for more than 20 years and is excited to be able to offer regenerative medicine to you.

What are regenerative medicine treatments?

Dr. Friehling offers many regenerative medicine treatments. Some of the most common include:

Biologic allograft

Stem cells serve as your body’s repair cells. They have the ability to duplicate and transform themselves into specialized cells to repair damaged or diseased tissue. Unfortunately, your body’s stem cells may not work as quickly or effectively as you’d like.

To accelerate your body’s natural healing process, Dr. Friehling uses biologic allografts for her stem cell therapy, which stimulates your body’s own stem cell production to accelerate the healing process.  

Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) therapy

PRP is a blood product Dr. Friehling creates from your own blood that contains a concentrated amount of platelets, growth factors, and specialized cells, which are your blood’s healing properties. With PRP therapy, she can accelerate your body’s natural healing powers.

Ozone therapy

With ozone therapy, Dr. Friehling uses medical grade ozone to stimulate a healing response in your body.

Nutrition

Dr. Friehling has received extensive training in alternative nutritional therapies and conducts hair mineral analysis to assess your overall health and risk of disease. Based on the information gathered from your analysis, she develops an individualized diet plan and nutritional supplement regimen to maintain, restore, or promote health.  

Additional regenerative medicine treatments Dr. Friehling specializes in includes Prolozone, MedicalWave, and ozonated clot matric (OCM) therapy.

Dr. Friehling also utilizes exosome therapy for regenerative medicine. Exosomes are found in your body and assist with cell communication. In regenerative medicine, exosome therapy assists in the regenerative process.
