Healthy Skin and You: How to Subtract Years from Your Face

Those people who are younger and have never had to face any of the effects of aging firsthand, often have a naive view of getting older– that they will age like fine wine. But in reality, the human body ages more like a fine milk. And this is because, well, we are alive! As the years take their toll, many people find that skin is one of the places that suffers the most as youthful vigor fades away into middle age. Having healthy skin takes a bit of work, and with the wide variety of anti-aging products, treatments, and nutrients that are available both over the counter and through clinical consultations, learning how to take care of your skin can seem like a bit of a daunting task. That’s why we’re here to help! All you need to do is keep a few basic things in mind, and you’ll be on the fast track to younger-looking, healthier skin.

Moisturized Skin is Happy Skin

This might be the simplest tip that there is, and is really the foundation for healthy skin: moisturizing! You must have heard it before, from any variety of sources, and if you haven’t– well, consider this your wakeup call. The skin is the largest organ in the human body, and it is one of the only outwardly-facing ones that there are– because of this, the skin is one of the organs that is most susceptible to damage, and you can think of moisturizer as a shield that can protect and preserve the quality of your skin.

The main use of moisturizers, in a medical sense, is to protect the skin from environmental exposure. This environmental exposure can be present in many ways, from the Sun’s UV rays, to hot showers, to exceedingly cold air– what do these things all have in common? They wear the skin down by causing it to dry out, causing cracks and wrinkles. When we apply moisturizer, it helps to hold water onto the surface of the skin, and draws water deeper into its layers. Hydrated skin looks younger, fuller, and often, more wrinkle-free, but there’s more! The right moisturizer will also serve to help the skin in repairing itself (this is often because it is fortified with certain vitamins), and can also stimulate blood circulation, which is another way to ensure that your skin looks healthy.

Next time you’re shopping for moisturizer, take a look at the ingredients on the back of the label before you apply them to your face. The best anti-aging moisturizers contain vitamins A, B5, C, or E, but it is also important to find a moisturizer that also includes SPF, especially if you live in sunnier climates.

Water, The Liver, & The Skin — A Skincare Cycle

In addition to hydrating the surface of your skin, it is important to hydrate the whole body! Staying hydrated is very important for healthy skin, and, by extension, so is the health of your liver. It is safe to say that having a healthy liver means that your skin will be similarly healthy.

Everything that we eat and drink, whether it is water or rice and beans, is processed in our livers. The liver is the greatest asset the body has to detox it, and it can at times be useful to consider it to be the garbage disposal of the body. After all the nutrients have been used, the liver disposes of the leftovers– and when the liver is dehydrated, it has been found to be significantly less effective in flushing out waste (lack of hydration impacting performance is a trend that can actually be seen all throughout the organs and systems of the human body). When the liver is not working at one-hundred percent, the body often decides to use different routes for detoxification, and one of the first ones is the skin. When the liver isn’t functioning well, people are more likely to experience skin irritation and blemishes like acne.

Stress and Cortisol Management

There’s a decent chance you didn’t expect stress to be on this list. It’s true that when I began researching this topic, I was a bit dubious about stress’ major impact on skin health, but there is no way to refute evidence– and keeping your stress in check has been found to be just as important as moisturizing.

It’s been found to be true that some people break out with rashes or acne when they are stressed. What’s more, people that have rosacea or eczema might find that their condition flares up when they are feeling stressed out. The reality is that there are a number of factors that contribute to this unfortunate correlation. Firstly, stress causes the body to release more cortisol (commonly known as the ‘stress hormone’), which makes the skin oily, clogs the pores, and causes breakouts. The next is that stress can also negatively affect the proteins in the skin, making it harder to retain water and elasticity. Dry skin that is not elastic has a higher chance of developing cracks or wrinkles, and– even worse, perhaps, stress has been found to interrupt a good night’s sleep, which leads to bags under the eyes and often a terrible feeling of sluggishness.

So, how can we reduce stress? That’s largely easier said than done, as many people certainly already know. There are, however, a few things that you can do that might help to wind you down:

  • Exercising
  • Practicing Self-Care
  • Enjoy Relaxing HObbies
  • Connect With Friends and Family
  • Meditate
  • Express your Feelings
  • Speak to A Therapist

Nutrition and the Skin

People often say that you are what you eat, but that is not entirely accurate. It’s probably a bit more accurate to simply say that you are as healthy as the food that you put into your body– this means that if all you are putting into your body is over-processed food with little to no real nutritional value, your skin (and energy, and immune system, and digestive system– everything,really), is going to take a major hit.

One of the most important things that you need to consider specifically for skin health is the presence of antioxidants in food that you eat. Antioxidants help fight off the damage that is caused by free radicals that harm the skin cells, making them one of the most powerful anti-aging tools available. Vitamin C, E, and A are rich in antioxidants and are found in food like strawberries, oranges, nuts, spinach, broccoli, fish, and dairy products. When possible, try to go organic, and we also recommend including a nutrient-rich vitamin IV drip into your routine– it is one of the least invasive ways to ensure that your body has an overabundance of the building blocks it needs to function well.

Similarly, bad nutrition leads to bad skin. Refined carbs like white bread, pastries, candy, and corn syrup, cause glycation, a major factor in premature aging.

The Importance of Humidity

We talked plenty about moisturizers, but there is another important tool that you can use to keep your skin hydrated and healthy, especially if you live in colder climates. It is known as a humidifier– when most people think of one, they get the association with being sick, and this is for good reason. After all, humidifiers are one of the most tried and true methods for reducing sinus inflammation, but they also have a positive effect on the skin.

Dry air strips the skin of oils and makes it easier for our faces to get irritated. Putting a humidifier in the areas of your home that you use the most is a simple, but effective, way of keeping your skin looking happy and healthy.

In Conclusion

How to Check-In on Your Health

Many people say that health is wealth– and this is because, really, many people do not know how important and crucial their health is until a certain part of their body is suffering– at which point they realize that they took their health for granted. However, just like checking your bank statements to verify where your money is being spent, there are several easy ways that you can keep an eye on your health yourself. If you are really concerned, and there might be something seriously wrong with you, a visit to a hospital or clinic might be necessary, but otherwise, there are a few things that you can do right at home if all you need is a simple check. In fact, you’d be surprised at just what you can find out about yourself with just a few simple tests.
Check Your Temperature
One of the easiest ways to simply check on your general health is to take your own temperature. All you need is a digital thermometer, which can be found at nearly any pharmacy, and place it under your tongue for a few moments until it beeps to get a reading. From there, you have an accurate gauge at how ‘hard’ your body is working– the higher the body temperature, the more energy that the body is using.
This could be due to a variety of reasons, including illness or exercise, and the baseline temperature for the majority of people is around 98.6. Any temperature over or under that number (even by a few tenths of a degree) can be cause for concern. If you’d prefer not to put one in your mouth, they make thermometers for the ears, as well as digital forehead scanners– whatever method you’d prefer, it is important to try and invest in a good thermometer, so that you can get as accurate a reading as possible.

Blood Pressure 
If someone was to ask you what your blood pressure was today, would you be able to even give them a ballpark estimate? While many people do not know exactly what it is, even fewer recognize just how important this metric of bodily function is. High blood pressure, also medically known as hypertension, is one of the leading causes of heart disease– it can be caused from eating lots of salty foods, smoking, or drinking. Additionally, it can also depend on a variety of other internal factors including age, race, family history, and your amount of exercise.
A blood pressure that is too high can lead to many major health problems aside from heart disease. It can also cause heart attacks, strokes, heart failure, and can affect the health of the brain as well. A good investment to check blood pressure is a blood pressure cuff– they make electronic ones, which are a bit more expensive, and old-fashioned ones that you blow up yourself by squeezing. In any case, it is important to know that a healthy blood pressure reading is around 120/80– anything higher would be a cause for concern, and a reason to consult with a medical professional.

Checking Your Pulse 
Checking your pulse, or heart rate, is a simple test that doesn’t require any special equipment. In fact, it is something that people have been doing much the same way for centuries! It is very important to know your resting heart rate, as those with a higher average resting heart rate tend to be more at risk for heart disease than those with a lower heart rate (this is simply because the heart works more), and heart disease remains the leading cause of death in the United States of America.
So, how do you check your pulse? All you need to do is take your index and middle finger and place them on your neck by your Adam’s apple. Then, count your heartbeat for a full 60 seconds, and you’re done! Congratulations, you’ve successfully discovered your resting heart rate. The average pulse is somewhere between 70-100 beats per minute, or bpm. If it is lower than that, it means that you are in good shape, and if it is higher, it means you are not. It costs absolutely nothing to check your pulse and get a rough estimate of the health of your heart.

How can you check your own pulse?

Alternatively, as technology continues its relentless march forward, you can use your smartphone or smartwatch to get a quick read of your pulse. Certain devices, such as Galaxy phones and the iWatch come with a built-in heartbeat sensor that can also monitor stress levels.
How to Measure your Waist 
All you need for this is a tape measure, or to look at your pants size. The size of your waist is positively correlated with your weight. To measure it with a tape measure (as, depending on the fit of your pants, it may be the most accurate measure) all you need to do is take the end of the tape measure and bring it around your waist. Tighten it, and you should be able to measure the circumference of the waist. Healthy men are expected to have a waste smaller than 40 in, while women should have a waist lower than 35.
There is no problem with accepting your weight the way it is, but part of accepting it means accepting the fact that being overweight makes you more susceptible for a wide range of health risks.

 this is a tape measure, check your waist

Check for Lumps
This is extremely important, and should be done regularly throughout your life. If you are a woman, you should be regularly checking your breasts for any lumps. This should be done in front of a mirror, as it can often provide a better view. To do this, all you need to do is work your way from the armpits to the nipple and check for any bruises, lumps, or discoloration– in short, anything that looks like it might not belong there. It can be done in as little as five minutes, but it is extremely important and one of the cornerstones to good health. If you find anything that is unusual, the earlier you catch it before it becomes a problem, the better. If you are a man, it is important to examine the testicles in a similar way. Feel around the sack and put a little pressure on the testes to feel for anything unusual. It may feel awkward, but it is far better to be safe than sorry with such a thing.

Check for Lumps with your hands

How Skin Plays into Health 
The sun is something that everyone experiences every single day– at least, we should hope so, but this is not always a good thing. It’s warm, comforting rays can actually make human beings more susceptible to skin cancer. It’s important to put sunscreen on, at least 50 SPF before leaving the house every day. If you want to check your skin at home, you can, but there’s a few simple things that you have to keep in mind. Stand Stand in front of a mirror and examine every part of your body. You might want to have someone there to help you in examining your back– you want to look for warning signs that are known as the “ABCDE” Signs.
A is for asymmetrical shape, B is for irregular borders, C is for abnormal color, D is for diameter, and E is for evolving. If a mole is larger than a pencil in diameter, has a weird color, is not an even circle, or changes appearance over time, you should head over to a dermatologist as soon as possible.
These are just a few of the things that you can do at home to check up on your health. It is important to check your health regularly so that you can catch any strange developments early on– Invest in some equipment like thermometers and blood pressure monitors– they don’t have to break the bank, but they do have to be accurate. This is one way that you can keep an eye on your health, to hopefully catch any problems you might have before it’s too late to do so.

ISSCA Announces Speaker’s List for 7th Annual Symposium

The International Society for Stem Cells Applications has officially announced and published its list of speakers for its 7th Annual Regenerative Medicine Symposium. The seventh event of its kind, it is another effort from the iSSCA to bring together a network of regenerative medicine practitioners from all over the world. At previous events, hundreds of physicians came to share in their knowledge regarding cellular therapies and the patients whose lives they can change, and the aim of this year is no different– of course, as a reunion of medical professionals, several steps will be taken to ensure proper social distancing measures, as well as frequent opportunities for sanitation. 

As with previous editions of the event, the topics discussed and speakers involved have been updated and edited in an effort to reflect the changing of time and the rapid evolution of the field of regenerative medicine. That is why this symposium will focus on Cellular Therapies During and After the Pandemic. Coronavirus has changed life as we know it, but the scientific and medical communities have not stopped researching. In fact, cellular therapies have been an invaluable asset in managing the largest pandemic in modern history, due to their implications in treating respiratory failure and managing some of the complications induced by exposure to COVID-19.  This has resulted in accelerated pathways for regulatory approval and increased funding for new regenerative medicine-based clinical trials, which will all be discussed in greater depth at the event. 

But the Regenerative Medicine Symposium also provides a valuable networking opportunity for physicians in the Latin American community. “Here, people interested in cellular therapy can find everything they need to get on the right path to helping people with regenerative medicine,” Said Benito Novas, VP of Public Relations, ISSCA, “If you’ve done some research yourself, or really have no idea where to start– this would be the place. We’ve got vendors, instructors, and interview panels with several distinguished researchers,” 


The International Society for Stem Cells Applications (ISSCA) is a multidisciplinary community of scientists and physicians, all of whom aspire to treat diseases and lessen human suffering through advances in science, technology, and the practice of regenerative medicine. Incorporated under the Republic of Korea as a non-profit entity, the ISSCA is focused on promoting excellence and standards in the field of regenerative medicine.

ISSCA bridges the gaps between scientists and practitioners in Regenerative Medicine.
Their code of ethics emphasizes principles of morals and ethical conducts.

At ISSCA, their vision is to take a leadership position in promoting excellence and setting standards in the regenerative medicine fields of publication, research, education, training, and certification.

Blood plasma reduces symptoms and fatalities in outbreaks of coronavirus.

The US blood donation centers are making unarguable efforts to collect plasma from COVID-19 patients who have recovered from the disease. They are hoping to use it to save the life of those who are still infected with this disease.
According to the guidelines released on Tuesday by AABB, an international nonprofit agency focused on transfusion medicine and cellular therapies, many community blood centers located nationwide could be an important source for this Old treatment method known as Convalescent plasma therapy.
In this treatment method, Blood products are taking from patients who survived this viral disease, and it’s been injected into those that are still infected. This experimental practice has a history of been used in the 1930s to treat measles. In the 1918s, during the disastrous flu, recently, this plasma therapy has been used to treat those infected with H1N1 influenza, SARS and Ebola.
Clinical researches have shown that the use of plasma offers some hope and reduces symptoms and fatalities in past outbreaks of coronavirus.
In the recent surge of COVID-19, unproven evidence from china has shown that passive antibody treatment has helped COVID-19 patients until they were able to develop their natural antibodies that can fight off the disease.
This procedure is a promising one to try given that there’s no treatment or vaccine for COVID-19, experts say.
“There’s nothing else out there,” said Dr. Louis Katz, an expert in the blood industry, leading the AABB’s working group on Convalescent plasma.
The new guidelines were made a week later after the Federal Food and Drug Administration authorized the immediate use of Convalescent plasma by doctors for critically ill COVID-19 patients. 
The first medical center to use this therapy is the Houston Methodist Hospital, and they have been able to treat two COVID-19 patients since Saturday, says a spokesman. The results are pending.
The New York blood center and some other sites have begun the collection of plasma since last week from patients who have recovered from this pandemic infection, and a few clinical trials have started to test this convalescent plasma for COVID-19.  The American Red Cross has organized a site to collect information about potential plasma donors.
As the AABB join the effort with America’s Blood Centers, a new rollout could develop the practice exponentially, said Katz.
“This is all the medicine on the fly, right?” we don’t have the randomized controlled trials. We’re going to do our best that we can,” said Katz.
At community blood centers, the plasma will be collected from COVID-19 survivor donors with a lab-confirmed test; these donors must have tested negative and stopped experiencing symptoms for over 28days, according to the guidelines.
Several research laboratories and medical companies are trying effortlessly to detect the antibodies that fight the virus. It may be hard for some blood centers to access the test at first, says Katz.
Meanwhile, centers will be allowed to collect plasma from COVID-19 survivor donors, and it will be administered to “Critically ill patient as quickly a possible” and then test for antibody titers later, Said the FDA spokesman on Tuesday.
This will make a great difference in the potential amount of plasma collected from COVID-19 survivors. Said Katz. “We can go the whole hog, now that we have such an accommodating stance from the agency”, he also said.
Felberbaum noted that an emergency investigational new drug or e-IND, authorization is required to transfuse convalescent plasma into patients, but not to distribute it after collecting it from the donor. According to him, the FDA has granted “numerous” requests for emergency INDs and continues to grant them as they are received.
Seattle-area blood center, Bloodworks Northwest, is working effortlessly with the National institutes of health and the University of Washington to start harvesting plasma from victims who have recovered from COVID-19. These donations will become a part of a research study co-led by a professor of medicine, Dr. Terry Gernsheimer, at UW school of medicine. They will also be recorded in a national registry being created to track the result of the plasma therapy, says Dr. Rebecca Haley, a medical director of Bloodworks Bio that produces biological products.
There is a high expectancy of interest among those who have suffered through the global infection.
Dr. Jon Peters is a 66 years old family practice physician in Portland who is also a victim of the Pandemic infection. Although he’s at home and still experiencing symptoms, he plans to donate plasma and get back to work as soon as his symptoms subside and once he’s able to do so.
There is a very low-risk issue or complication for the donor but could be a lifesaver to someone out there, he said.
It is good to know that “at this point, they require every option they can get” hence, this therapy can offer a solution to this ravenous pandemic.

PRP Formulations: Have You heard about Acellular Growth Factor Rich Plasma A-GFRP?

Platelet Rich Plasma is one of the regenerative therapies most popular outhere by concept; it’s a sample of blood that contains 3-5 times the baseline levels of platelets. PRP is obtained after a laboratory process that includes putting the samples in a swing out rotor centrifuge at high speed.There are several systems and ways to obtain PRP, but basically it is done by centrifuging whole blood and obtaining the platelet layer and in some cases, the buffy coat layer.   

For the past 2 decades PRP has become a paramount weapon in regenerative medicine.

Acellular Growth Factor Rich Plasma A-GFRP

There are two different ways of using PRP, one as cellular rich plasma which is mostly used for local applications, and a less known version: The acellular growth factors rich plasma A-GFRP which is used for systemic applications and as a culture media for stimulating Stem Cells  .

To obtain the AGrowth factors rich plasma A-GFRP it is necessary to add Calcium to the original PRP and incubate for 45 min at 37.5 C.this will produce platelet activation, degranulation and ultimate lysis, hence liberating all the growth factors and chemokines to the serum that way we will obtain a contracted clot surrounded by a high protein serum. This serum, rich in growth factors can be administered via IV as a conditioning therapeutic, or as a culture media free of animal products. Watch the Step by Step Video 

What do the platelets have inside?  

Platelets are fragments of cells holding granules in their cytoplasm. Those granules contain up to 8 growth factors that have an important effect on tissue repair, some of the important ones that are key to cellular proliferation and angiogenesis are. 

-VEGF (vascular-endothelial growth factor),

-EGF (epidermal growth factor),

-bFGF (basic fibroblast growth factor) 

What is Exosome therapy?

Exosomes are extracellular vesicles (that’s particles that release naturally from a cell that cannot replicate) that are responsible for certain genetic information, otherwise known as Exosomes cell to cell communication. They transport molecules that are essential regulators of intracellular information between close and distant cells. 
Exosomes play a vital role in the communication and rejuvenation of all the cells in our body. Despite not being a cell, Exosome has proven to be quite important in maintaining a healthy cellular terrain.
Exosomes are typically made by growing stem cells in culture. Taking the media where they grow and then getting rid of the stem cells. Due to the small size of Exosomes, the media is then ultra-centrifuged to concentrate the exosomes.
Exosomes contain different molecular constituents of their cell origin; these include proteins and RNA. Meanwhile, the Exosomal proteins composition varies with the cell and tissue of the origin; most Exsomes contains an evolutionarily conserved common set of protein molecules.
Exosomes can be isolated from culture stem cell using the method Ultracentrifugation. Often combined with sucrose density gradients, they float the relatively low-density Exosomes from other microvesicles. Cells and larger particles are removed by sequentially increasing the centrifugal forces. These procedures can take up to 30hours and requires an ultracentrifuge, extensive training and specialized equipment.
This method provides highly enriched exosomes but requires specialized training and equipment.
Now, this is how Exosomes works:
Exosomes carry genetic information. Protein and messenger RNA, they can relay this information, letting cells know when to and how to react. This Exosomes cell-to-cell communication is possible due to its unique shape and content.
Exosomes from young stem cells rejuvenate the older cells and assist in calming an overreactive immune system or modulating it to respond in a coordinated and more effective fashion.
Exosome therapy is one of the hottest areas of regenerative medicine treatment. Researchers have given us valuable insight into the practical functionality of exosomes. While stem cells are usually responsible for the rejuvenation of older cells, they may not be able to supply all the information needed. So supporting Exosome function could have a greater positive effect, by providing a new piece of information to enhance the healing process.
Exosome therapy is a minimally invasive procedure commonly used in orthopedic injuries, for anti-aging and some other degenerative diseases. Exosomes treatment contains growth factors, messenger RNA, micro RNA, cytokines and other biologically active molecules in conjunction with stem cell therapy to speed up healing benefit.
Exosome therapy can be injected into the affected area like in orthopedic injuries or given intravenously for anti-aging.
This Exosome injection is administered directly into the affected area, and the dosing for every patient varies, and there is no set protocol.
Exosomes treatment is gaining popularity recently, due to its ability to transfer molecules from one cell to another via membrane vesicle, therefore influencing the immune system, such as dendrite cells and B cells. 
What is exosome therapy used for?
HAIR LOSS: Exosomes injection can be used to regrow hair loss due to its growth factor content. When injected, Exosome will trigger healing, cell stimulation and natural regeneration of these hair follicles. Exosome hair loss therapy is cutting-edge in hair restoration. According to research, there is a positive relationship between Exosomes and Hair loss. Exosomes are ideal for people with thinning hair, excessive shedding or hair loss proper. This is because Exosomes are regenerative cells that can heal, repair, stimulate and restore cells and tissues. 
LYME DISEASE: Exosomes may help to regulate processes in the body, and may also be beneficial to patients with Lyme disease. Lyme disease is a very complex disease, which compromises the immune system. Many Lyme patients suffer from dysfunction of the mast cells, increasing their inflammatory response and metabolic function. Incorporating Exosomes treatment in their treatment regimen may help break the inflammatory response and provide the body with necessary cellular information to facilitate healing.
ARTHRITIS:  Arthritis as we all know, is the joint inflammation resulting from an autoimmune disease. Although various types of treatment are available to alleviate symptoms, no known therapy has been confirmed effective in reversing the disease progression.
In the field of regenerative medicine today, with the discovery of extracellular microvesicles, especially exosomes, many researchers have been able to offer a more exciting alternative on this subject matter. Exosome arthritis therapy is believed to play a more substantial role in bone and cartilage remodeling.

How to boost your immune system to fight cancer?

The human immune system helps to protect the body against illness and infection caused by bacteria, viruses, fungi, and parasites.  This process is achieved by a collection of reactions and responses made by the body to damage these infected cells. It is also called immune responses.
This immune system is very crucial in cancer patients to help fight cancer, it dictates this cancer as abnormal and destroys it, but this is not enough to rid of cancer altogether.  In most cases, cancer will weaken this immune system because it will spread into the bone marrow that produces blood cells that fights against infections and cause the bone marrow to decrease in its blood cell production. 
When this immune system is unable to recognize these cells as abnormal, cellular growth will occur, causing uncontrolled growth and division of cells, that will, in turn, lead to cancer. 
Cancer has been a serious and sensitive talk for both patients and doctors. Being diagnosed with cancer is frightening and tormenting, but due to the latest treatment method, recovering from this disease is increasingly possible. Living with cancer often brings an initial psychological crisis, but surprisingly it does not only affect you but your family and others close to you. 
Cancers, especially genetic cancer can’t be prevented, so it is essential to be proactive about your health. If you’re diagnosed with cancer, some individual lifestyles that will help improve your cancer care, which includes managing stress. Reducing your stress level can help you to maintain physical and mental stress; you can use relaxation techniques such as meditation and yoga. Getting enough sleep is also crucial for patients living with cancer; this will help improve their health, mood, and coping ability. Also, it is best the limit their exposure to toxins that can increase one’s risk of being exposed to other deadly diseases. 
A healthy feeding habit is critically important and can help manage cancer side effects, improve health, and quick recovery. Some tips to help you develop a good and healthy feeding diet include:

  • Consuming assorted types of vegetables in all your meals. Vegetables are essential and should not just be a side dish but the centerpiece of your meal.
  • Consuming foods rich in fiber like grains, beans, peas, nuts, and seeds.
  • Consuming less red meat, like pork, lamb, goat, and bison.
  • The presence of probiotic and prebiotic foods helps to support a healthy gut. Probiotic foods include yogurt or other fermented vegetables, and prebiotic foods include raw or cooked onions, dandelion greens, and legumes.
  • Avoid processed and canned foods
  • Avoid foods high in calories and low in nutrients like fruit-flavored drinks, sodas, candies, and sweets.
  • Lastly, cut down on the excessive intake of alcohol.

Some other routines can help improve cancer care like regular exercise. Regular exercise helps to control fatigue, muscle tension, and anxiety in those with cancer, and it is essential, especially during and after cancer treatment, so keep fit and avoid adding unnecessary weight.
There are many cancer treatment options for different types of cancers. Cancer treatments depend on the type and how to advance it is. Some patients with cancer will only have one treatment option, while others will end up with a combination of more that one treatments technique  depending on the type and stage of cancer. 
Curing cancer is one of the significant challenges of the 21st century. However, few advances to tame the immune system are getting closer to a future where cancer can be a curable disease. 
Although cancer treatment is dependent on the stage and type, we need a wide range of therapies that work on cellular level like NK cell and stem cell therapies, wide enough to cover the whole spectrum of cancer. Cancer therapies involving the immune system is believed to be a milestone for cancer treatment advances, and the development of multiple immune cells as a therapeutic tool.
Our knowledge of cancer has dramatically improved in recent years. And it seems increasingly evident that there has been a surge of new technologies, and these technologies could make a great impact on the way we treat cancer, taking us closer to finally curing this deadly disease. 
One of these promising cancer treatment advances is the natural killer (NK) cell-based immunotherapy.
Natural killer cells have emerged as the newest promising therapeutic approach to cancer. Our understanding of the biological processes that take place in cancer is increasing rapidly, leading to this new type of targeted treatment and therapeutic approach.  It is hard to overstate the possible importance of NK cells in the future of cancer. Modern researches have shown that NK cells are a type of treatment that stimulates a persons’ immune system to fight cancer, and this may give room for a greater number of chances to beat cancer for good. NK cells are also known for their ability to target cancer stem cells making these cancer stem cells visible to the immune system.
NK cells was first identified in the 1970s as a unique lymphocyte subset that can recognize and kill abnormal cells without prior sensitization of specific tumor antigen, thus preventing the growth of many cancers. During the late 1980s, something was observed, and this was that NK cells could destroy a lymphoma cell line that had lost MHC class I surface molecules while the original MHC class I+ cells were resistant to lysis, which led to the formation of the “missing self-hypothesis” which states that NK cells can sense the absence of “self” MHC class-I molecule on target cells.  In recent years, the hypothesis was confirmed by the inhibitory and activating NK cell receptors. 
This discovery indicates that autologous cells are not killed by NK cells, thanks to an appropriate expression of all self-HLA alleles, do not kill an autologous cell. In contrast, a wide spec of cancer types can be killed due to the loss of HLA molecules and to the expression/overexpression of ligands for NK cell activating receptors.   
Now, this is how NK therapy works
NK cells firsts recognize the tumor cells via stress or danger signals from their sensors. 
Then, the Activated NK cells directly decimate the target tumor cells through at least four mechanisms. These mechanisms are cytoplasmic granule release, death receptor-induced apoptosis, effector molecule production, or ADCC. 
Furthermore, NK cells act as regulatory cells when reciprocally interact with DCs to improve their antigen uptake and presentation. This action helps in facilitating the generation of antigen-specific CTL responses that is vital in dictating foreign invasion and tumor cells. 
Also, by producing cytokines such as IFN-γ, activated NK cells induce CD8+ T cells to become CTLs. Activated NK cells can also help in the differentiation of CD4+ T cells toward a Th1 response and promote CTL differentiation. Cytokines produced by NK cells might even have the unique ability to regulate antitumor cells, making them more proactive. 
Accordingly, The cytokine gene transfer approach induces NK cell proliferation, and this increases survival capacity. Further enhancing their activation and also making them more potent in malignant cell multiplication dictation. 
The NK cell scientist has assured that by using NK cell lines, modifying genes such as IL-2, IL-12, IL-15, and stem cell factor (SCF). They have been demonstrated the ability of the NK to restore their cytotoxic capacity as well as increase their proliferative rate, survival ability, and in vivo antitumor activity. However, the specificity of NK cells is still limited, and studies are even passing through phases. The approach focuses on retargeting NK cells to tumor cells by gene transfer of chimeric tumor-antigen specific receptors. 
NK therapy is promising research; it raises the prospect of “one-end-solution” to many different types of cancers across the Globe. If the studies and experiments work out pretty well, the NK cells will be able to increase the activity of CD4+, CD19, and other important disease-fighting cells of the body. 
There is no doubt that this an unimaginable feat, both in advancing our basic knowledge about regenerative medicine and for the possibility of future cancer treatment advances.
