A patient asks me about therapy of adrenal fatigue with stem cells and platelet-rich plasma (PRP):
If your practice is willing to provide stem cell treatment for adrenal fatigue, can you explain how long the procedure takes and how painful it is? Will I be under local or general anesthesia? Do you extract HGH/PRP from fat or from blood? Does this get injected into the adrenals directly?
My answer was: All together takes about 1 to 2 hours, the fat harvesting by liposuction is done in just 15 minutes, normally no pain, just local anesthetics are used. Stem cells will be extracted from a small portion of your fat, PRP from your own blood. We will inject the stem cells intravenously, which is the appropriate form in most ailments.
