On the contrary.
They should be thinking of a quiet room with a comfy, cushioned chair and a simple, minimally-invasive outpatient procedure that can be as easy as a blood draw.
No Pain, Yes Gain
The process is pretty quick and easy.
The stem cells and natural signaling factors are extracted (just like a blood draw), separated and then reintroduced back into the body while you are awake and sitting in a chair.
During a normal IV-like procedure, when the blood is put back, it quickly circulates throughout the body, but with our process, the stem cells conveniently get trapped in the lungs and the potential to arrest or slow down the progression of the disease can begin.
Bone Marrow Procedure
The Lung Institute’s bone marrow treatment is a two-part, outpatient procedure over two days.
Stem cells harvested from a bone marrow procedure typically have a high concentration of adult stem cells.
Day one is a bone marrow withdrawal and the stem cells are harvested, processed and separated and returned into the body through an IV.
Day two is similar, except it is a venous (blood) procedure.
After the two procedures, the stem cells may begin to promote healing.
Blood (Venous) Procedure
This is an alternative to the bone marrow therapy and is less invasive.
The venous treatment has shown to help many. Just like the bone marrow treatment, there is a blood withdrawal and the stem cells and natural signaling factors are harvested, processed and separated, and they are returned into the body through an IV.
On day two the procedure is repeated.
Two easy treatments step by step, we:
- withdraw a blood or a bone marrow sample
- separate your stem cells and natural signaling factors from your blood or bone marrow.
- reintroduce the stem cells back into your body where they come to rest inside the lungs promoting both natural healing and inflammation reduction.
Since we use your own stem cells to treat and slow down the progression of COPD, side effects are nearly nonexistent.
Stem cell therapy has demonstrated the potential to improve quality of life to those who may have otherwise given up hope.
The sooner you address these conditions, the sooner your COPD can be controlled.
This is not another drug.
It’s a treatment!
