Lung Disease Sufferers are Getting Back to the Life They Want with Stem Cell Therapy.
For many people, being diagnosed with a chronic lung disease like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) or pulmonary fibrosis means giving up some of the things you enjoy the most. Many diagnoses are accompanied by a long list of lifestyle modifications, which could mean the end of some of your favorite hobbies. For some sufferers, this is just unacceptable.
The typical treatment options—medications and supplemental oxygen—only treat the symptoms, but they do nothing to combat the condition itself. Other times, individuals spend years on the waiting list for a lung transplant only to have their condition progress too far or for them to get too old. As a result, there are a large group of sufferers who want something better. They spend hours on end searching for alternative treatment options that could help them get back to the lives they love. That’s when they come to the Lung Institute.
Choosing Stem Cell Therapy
At the Lung Institute, we treat sufferers of chronic lung diseases with stem cell therapy. By using the stem cells’ innate healing properties to help combat the symptoms of lung disease, we facilitate the process of breathing easier through regenerative medicine. For our patients, stem cell therapy is a better alternative than the highly invasive lung transplant or lung reduction, and it gives them a great chance to get back to the things they love. Check out how our patients have been breathing easier and putting their life back into their own hands.
A Few Patient Success Stories
“When I went to the Lung Institute, I never thought I’d see any immediate results. On my third and final treatment, we began our road trip back home. My partner and I stopped to visit friends who had just purchased a new dulcimer. They were playing music and everyone started singing—I did too. The thing is, it had been years since I had enough air to sing. It totally amazed me.” – Susan

“I have seen such improvement; I saw my pulmonologist who told me that my lungs showed no signs of COPD! Now, I am able to walk my 22-acre farm without any shortness of breath or portable oxygen!” – Joe
“I can already feel a difference. I was walking around the house a lot more. I went to wash my hair in the kitchen sink, which I take my oxygen off. After I was done, I walked to the bedroom and back, and I noticed that something was different—I didn’t have my oxygen on!”
“Not only am I feeling better, but my lungs are doing better than they have in a long time. Since my treatment in May, I am able to do things again that I haven’t done in months. Walking, shopping and seeing my family are just some of the things that I can do now.” – Vickie
