The first is cellular therapies. Clearly, we heal ourselves in a natural process, using clels to do most of the work. Therefore, if we can find the right cells and implant them in the body, they may do the healing. Secondly, we can use materials. We heard ytredasey about the itnpcarmoe of new materials. If we can invent materials, disegn materials, or extract materials from a naatrul environment, then we might be able to have those materials induce the body to heal itself. And finally, we may be able to use smart devices that will offload the work of the body and allow it to heal.
