The Lung Institute Now Treats Pneumoconiosis

by | May 21, 2015 | Press

Sufferers of conditions like black lung disease are finally breathing easier.

Tampa, FL (May 21, 2015)Pneumoconiosis is a debilitating lung disease caused by breathing in the particles of mineral dust. It is an occupational lung disease common among miners, welders, tunnel builders and other manufacturing positions. Oftentimes, symptoms don’t present themselves immediately, so by the time someone shows symptoms, the damage has already been done. Symptoms of pneumoconiosis include: increased mucus, chronic cough, shortness of breath, pulmonary hypertension, chest tightness/pain, heart problems and cyanosis. Unfortunately, there isn’t a cure for this condition, and traditional treatment options have been limited to things like oxygen therapy.

Many workers have been frustrated with current and past employers due to the lack of compensation for these costly medical conditions, which often yield little results. Now, cellular therapy offers another option for these workers to finally breathe easier. The Lung Health Institute is pleased to announce that they are now able to offer treatments for those suffering from pneumoconiosis.

There are three types of pneumoconiosis: black lung, silicosis and siderosis. All three conditions involve inhaling particles into the lungs, which settle and cause severe irritation. This irritation slowly causes scarring to the lung tissue, which causes it to harden and ultimately makes it harder for a person to breathe. As a result, sufferers are at risk for heart failure, pulmonary tuberculosis, respiratory failure and death.

Cellular therapy has helped many lung disease sufferers regain their quality of life. While cellular therapy isn’t a cure, it helps bring a more normal life back into reach. With some Cellular therapy patients being able to do things like shower on their own, walk to the mailbox without oxygen, golf, travel and more—things that they thought they would never be able to do after being diagnosed with pneumoconiosis or another debilitating lung disease.

Lung Health Institute patient Arnold M. explains the results that he has experienced after receiving cellular therapy treatments: “I can walk about 200-300 feet. Prior to this I could only walk 20 feet. The other day, I had two appointments. One was for my lung doctor, a pulmonologist, and the other one was with the eye doctor. The pulmonologist said, ‘You seem to be doing real well; what have you been doing lately?’ I said that I’ve just been taking care of myself, and he goes ‘My god, you’ve been doing a good job.’ He couldn’t believe I was that good; I told him about cells, and he stood there with his mouth hanging open. I guess he didn’t run across anybody that has done it. He was kind of amazed.”

The Lung Health Institute has completed over 800 cellular therapy treatments to date and is excited to now be able to treat those suffering from pneumoconiosis. The Lung Health Institute currently has clinics in Tampa, Scottsdale and Nashville, they look forward to opening a fourth clinic in Pittsburgh in July 2015.
