Cellular and tissue degeneration happens to everyone, whether it’s from natural aging, an injury, or a chronic condition. At Santa Fe Soul Center for Regenerative Medicine in Santa Fe, New Mexico, acupuncture and integrative medicine specialist Robyn Benson, DOM, and her team turn degeneration into regeneration, with advanced lab testing, acupuncture, platelet-rich plasma, and other regenerative medicine strategies. For a regenerative medicine consultation, call Santa Fe Soul Center for Regenerative Medicine or schedule an appointment online today.
Regenerative medicine is a type of medicine that induces natural processes that already exist in your body for healing and tissue growth. Your tissues and organs might retain damage from an underlying medical condition or acute injury. Regenerative medicine can help you heal and restore the original function of your damaged tissues or organs.
Santa Fe Soul Center for Regenerative Medicine provides several popular and effective regenerative medicine treatment options. There are many different regenerative medicine approaches, all of which aid in healing and functional improvement. During your consultation, the team helps you review your options in the context of your condition or injury and select the treatment that best fits your case.
Before you undergo a regenerative medicine treatment, the team assesses your illness or injury and the difficulties you experience because of it. Regenerative therapies promote healthy tissue growth by increasing stem cell production and promoting more collagen and elastin growth within your tissues to make them stronger, firmer, and tighter.
To make the most of such treatments, the team at Santa Fe Soul Center for Regenerative Medicine created the Amplified Regenerative Therapies (ART) lab. There, they can assess your needs with advanced diagnostic testing before designing a regenerative treatment plan just for you. Your regenerative treatment plan might involve:
Platelet-rich plasma is an injectable substance containing platelets and their growth factors from your blood. PRP can help with sexual rejuvenation, anti-aging appearance enhancements, and injury healing in joints and soft tissues.
Diet therapy involves intermittent fasting, a strategy in which you change your eating habits to avoid eating during certain times of the day. Diet therapy can help you lose weight, but it also helps your cells repair themselves by removing dysfunctional proteins within them.
Acupuncture can be a powerful tool for healing and tissue regeneration. The fine needles in your acupuncture treatment stimulate your body’s natural healing processes and can help repair injured nerves and muscle tissue.
Regenerative medicine can benefit anyone struggling with the bodily changes that occur from disease, injuries, or natural aging. Even if you don’t have a specific injury that needs to heal or a condition causing damage within your body, like arthritis, your cells and tissues can degenerate over time as you get older.
The team at Santa Fe Soul Center for Regenerative Medicine helps you evaluate your overall health and functioning to determine whether or not regenerative medicine can help you reach your goals.

Hyperbaric medicine is medical treatment in which the medical use of oxygen at greater than atmospheric pressure to increase the availability of oxygen in the body and therapeutic recompression, which involves increasing the ambient pressure on a person, such as a diver, to treat decompression sickness by eliminating nitrogen bubbles that have formed within the body.
In the United States the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society, lists approvals for certain diagnoses in hospitals and clinics. The following indications are approved uses of hyperbaric oxygen therapy:
The therapeutic consequences of hyperbaric oxygen and recompression result from multiple effects…
The increased overall pressure is of therapeutic value in the treatment of decompression sickness and air embolism as it provides a physical means of reducing the volume of inert gas bubbles within the body. Exposure to this increased pressure is maintained for a period long enough to ensure that most of the gas is dissolved back into the tissues and eliminated through the lungs.
For many other conditions, the therapeutic principle of hyperbaric oxygen lies in its ability to drastically increase partial pressure of oxygen in the tissues of the body.
This effect is achieved by an increase in the oxygen transport capacity of the blood. At normal atmospheric pressure, oxygen transport is limited by the oxygen binding capacity of hemoglobin in red blood cells and very little oxygen is transported by blood plasma.
Because the hemoglobin of the red blood cells is almost saturated with oxygen at atmospheric pressure, this route of transport cannot be exploited any further. Oxygen saturation and transport by plasma, however, is significantly increased using hyperbaric oxygen because of the higher solubility of oxygen as pressure increases.
The result is an improved capillary transfer mechanism and better overall availability of oxygen, which produces potent anti-inflammatory effects in the tissues.
One study also suggests that exposure to hyperbaric oxygen might also mobilize stem/progenitor cells from the bone marrow by a nitric oxide-dependent mechanism.
In the end this leads to a healthier, more vibrant YOU!
The only absolute contraindication to hyperbaric oxygen therapy is untreated pneumothorax. The concern is that it can progress to tension pneumothorax, especially during the decompression phase of therapy, although treatment on oxygen-based tables may avoid that progression.
