Alcohol & Drug Addiction Q & A

How alcohol and drug addiction affect the brain?

Chronic alcohol and drug abuse creates swelling and neurodegeneration in the brain, which scientists believe contributes to the addiction. Researchers have also found that alcohol and drug use reduces stem cell availability in the body. Animal studies show that overconsumption of alcohol can lead to a 50 to 90 percent decline in the availability of stem cells. The stem cells that are most affected by this are the ones found in the hippocampus of the brain. This part of the brain plays an important role in memory, spatial skills, and decision-making.  

What is Regenerative Medicine ? 

The field of regenerative medicine focuses on using non invasive and natural therapies to help restore and repair the body and its natural functioning. Regenerative medicine is highly researched and growing area of medicine that may offer therapies to repair tissue and organs that are damaged due to aging, injury, disease or drug abuse.
