Bronchiectasis is an incurable chronic lung disease that causes shortness of breath, coughing, difficulty breathing and fatigue over time. There are, however, several treatment options that may help patients better manage their symptoms and improve their quality of life.
Bronchiectasis falls into the category of chronic obstructive lung diseases, like emphysema and COPD. Traditional treatments may include antibiotics, which may help treat infections caused by the buildup of mucus.
Staying healthy is an important component of managing the symptoms of bronchiectasis. It’s also recommended you stay up to date on vaccinations in order to reduce the risk of developing respiratory infections from viruses like influenza. Pulmonary rehabilitation may be helpful since it involves teaching patients about breathing exercises to help clear the airway and providing with nutritional, physical and emotional support. Some patients also consider alternative forms of bronchiectasis treatment, such as cellular therapy, to further help relieve their symptoms.
Cellular therapy for bronchiectasis
Cellular therapy is a regenerative therapy that may help treat the underlying symptoms of bronchiectasis. While it can’t reverse the existing damage from inflammation and scarring, it may help slow the progression of inflammation and the effects of chronic lung disease. Those who undergo cellular therapy as a form of bronchiectasis treatment may also experience a number of quality of life benefits, including the ability to incorporate daily activity, spend time with family and do day-to-day things like cleaning the house, walking to the mailbox and shopping.
The Lung Health Institute is the only cellular therapy center in the world to focus exclusively on the treatment of lung-related disorders. We use cells from the patient’s own body, which have the ability to replicate and take on characteristics of other surrounding tissue, to help promote healing within the lungs.
