I am looking for treatment that gets to the root of the problem? I am reading ayurverdic articles that speak of cell nutrition. I had stem cells therapy in my knees. I am hoping for them to work.
Does anyone have information,?

Good questions, @lavanda7. Stem cell therapy for osteoarthritis is making progress. Some treatments are available today and others in the near future (hopefully). You can read more about what Mayo Clinic is doing here:
– Regenerative Medicine https://www.mayo.edu/research/centers-programs/center-regenerative-medicine/patient-care/regenerative-medicine-therapeutic-suites
And in this video with Dr. Daniel Saris, an orthopedic surgeon at Mayo Clinic
But, beware. There's a lot of misinformation out there and frankly charlatans trying to make money off the hope of valid stem cell therapy. Be sure to do your research.
By cell nutrition, are you referring specifically to the Ayurvedic diet?
Hi @lavanda7, I would like to add my welcome to Connect along with @colleenyoung and others. I had an injury to my right knee when I was in my 40s and had a small piece of cartilage removed. Over the years the knee had given me trouble and I had several steroid shots. In my mid 70s I started looking into PLP injections and stem cell therapy but I was told it wouldn't help because my knee was too far gone. I even tried to get into a clinical trial for stem cell therapy instead of a knee replacement but I was too old at 76 and didn't meet the criteria.
The surgeon in the video, Dr. Daniel Saris was the one who did my knee replacment and I am extremely happy with the results and the outcome. I second @colleenyoung's comment about doing your research as there are a lot of so called stem cell clinics taking advantage of those who don't do their research.
