Use Your Body's Natural Ability to Heal
Regenerative Medicine uses your body's ability to heal itself. For example, when you cut the skin on your arm (tissue), your body's cells flood to the area, transferring growth factors to resident cells, to initiate the healing cascade. This process is the same whether it is in the joint...
BOOST YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM
While it may be easier in summer to get exercise in during longer daylight hours and eat healthy with lots of produce in season, it’s important to establish a great summer routine that you can keep up all year long. Doing this will boost your immunity to better handle seasonal sickness and fend off germs as cold and flu seasons come and go.
Maintaining healthy eating and exercise keeps you well and also helps increase your energy levels and mood. Meal planning or adding in supplements as well as incorporating fruits and vegetables are good ways for families with busy schedules to have nutritious meals on hand and avoid slipping into fast foods or other convenient but unhealthy options.
Staying hydrated is crucial especially as we get into warmer summer months. Drinking plenty of water flushes out toxins so your body can get rid of it and fend off sickness easier.
Don’t let summer living...
Believe it or not, stress levels and a proper diet are closely related. When we’re overwhelmed, we often forget to eat well and resort to using sugary, fatty snack foods as a pick-me-up.
Try to avoid sugary snacks by planning ahead. Fruits and vegetables are always a great choice. Eating healthy has been shown to reduce the symptoms of stress.
Exercise doesn't necessarily mean power lifting at the gym or training for a marathon. A short walk around the block or simply standing up to stretch during a break at work can offer immediate relief in a stressful situation.
Getting your blood moving releases endorphins and can improve your mood almost instantaneously. Get your body up and moving!
Everyone knows stress can cause you to lose sleep. Unfortunately, lack of sleep is also a key cause of stress. This vicious cycle causes the brain and body to get out of whack and only gets worse with time.

What Is Regenerative Medicine?
Regenerative medicine works to replace tissue or organs that have been damaged by disease, trauma, or congenital issues. The tools used to achieve these outcomes are tissue engineering, cellular therapies, and medical devices.
These approaches can amplify our natural healing process in the areas you need it the most. Regenerative medicine is an expanding field that brings together many experts in the various fields of biology, chemistry, genetics, medicine, and others to find solutions to some of the medical problems faced by humankind.
When wounded by disease, our bodies have the innate response to heal and defend. What if it was possible to harness the power of the body to heal and then accelerate it in a clinically relevant way? What if we could help the body heal better?
The expanding field of Regenerative Medicine is working to restore structure and function of damaged tissues and organs. It is also working to create solutions...
Dr. Waugh has been in regenerative medicine for 12 years now. He started with PRP way back when it was still considered regenerative orthopedics. He was excited to see patients recover when there was no good surgical alternative or the patient wished to avoid surgery. He had a niche where he knew he could do more than the typical “standard of care” sports medicine physician despite not having the credentials to perform surgery.
Recently, Dr. Waugh had another patient who was blown away by his results. The patient came in for his 6-month follow-up appointment for a right knee meniscus tear. It is well-known now in the industry that surgery for meniscus tears are not necessary in most cases. But most physicians and surgeons recommend surgery no matter what the symptoms are. However, the only cases that mandate surgery are those that are acutely locked in one position, those that continue to swell, have mechanical symptoms or have pain that is affecting activities of daily...

Our quality of life is a direct correlation to the lifestyle choices we make.
What if we took a proactive approach with our health instead of waiting until there are problems?
It is natural for our bodies to feel different as we age, but there are ways we can improve our longevity and our quality of life. Just like our genes are the kindling for a fire, our lifestyle choices are the logs that allow for it to burn bright and long.
