Herb’s Story: Better Quality of Life, Less Oxygen Use

by | May 7, 2019 | Featured, Patient Stories

Herb has chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and the emphysema that often goes along with it. He used to depend on his oxygen tank to do basic chores around the house and to go out in public. However, since seeking treatment at Lung Health Institute, Herb has seen significant improvements in his quality of life.

How Herb’s Quality of Life Has Improved Thanks to Treatments From Lung Health Institute

Herb came in for his first Lung Restoration Treatment at the Lung Health Institute Nashville location 4 years ago. His pulmonologist and general practitioner were both skeptical about the treatment, but Herb said, “What do I have to lose? I’m no good the way I am, so I might as well try it.”
Since his first treatment, Herb has regained the ability to do many things he couldn’t do before treatment. For example, he’s now able to run the vacuum, make the bed and do many other cleaning chores around the house. He very rarely uses an oxygen tank at home anymore and typically doesn’t take it with him at all when he goes out. Herb has also noticed that he can now sit down and rest for a few minutes and get his breath back, which wasn’t possible for him before his first treatment.
Herb is also happy that he’s regained some of the weight he had lost and claims that, “I’m 99% improved from where I was.”

Find Treatment Options Designed to Improve Your Quality of Life at Lung Health Institute

If you have a chronic lung condition, our Lung Health Institute health care team is ready and willing to help you find effective treatments.
For instance, we offer 3 Anti-Inflammatory Initiative plans that are designed to benefit chronic lung disease patients. For one thing, these plans may help you take control of your health by boosting your immune system. They are designed to help your body begin using fats as inflammation-fighting fuel.
We also offer a minimally invasive treatment option called cellular therapy. Also referred to as Cellular Therapy, cellular therapy is a procedure that uses concentrated platelets and cells from a small sample of your blood to target lung disease. The platelets release healing properties that, when combined with proteins, growth factors and other helpful cells from your blood, may help promote healing in damaged lung tissue and reduce lung inflammation.
