Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, is a condition that has many symptoms. One of the common symptoms of this chronic lung condition is inflammation, and it can be very hard to treat this symptom effectively. However, the health care team at the Lung Health Institute may be able to help you find ways to reduce your lung tissue inflammation.
How cellular therapy treatments at LHI may help reduce your inflammation
One treatment offered at LHI that may help reduce the inflammation in your lungs is cellular therapy. This form of therapy uses a platelet-rich plasma concentrate taken from your blood that may help reduce your inflammation. At LHI, our cellular therapy process is used in treatments like our Lung Restoration Treatment™ and Lung Restoration Treatment Plus™, and the process for this form of treatment has five steps to it.
First, you’ll be fitted with an IV, and a small blood sample will be taken from you. The second step our health care team will take is to separate platelets and other helpful cells from your blood sample into a plasma concentrate. Third, the concentrated cells will then be returned to your body through your IV. The fourth step in cellular therapy is that the concentrated cells are pulled into your heart. The final step will occur when your heart pumps the plasma concentrate into your lungs where they’re naturally caught. As the plasma concentrate is caught in the lungs, it may begin to promote healing and reduce inflammation.
Other treatments LHI offers that may help reduce your lung inflammation
In addition to cellular therapy, our health care team at LHI also offers other inflammation-fighting treatments. For instance, we offer three Anti-Inflammatory Initiative™ plans that may help reduce your lung inflammation. Also known as AI2™ plans, these plans focus on helping you take control of your health in several ways. For one thing, the plans help you find ways to improve your gut health and strengthen your immune system, which may help you fight secondary infections that may cause more inflammation. Our AI2 plans may also help you train your body to begin using fats as inflammation-fighting fuel.
