COPD Treatment in Texas
COPD Treatment in Texas
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a progressive form of lung disease ranging from mild to severe. It is characterized by a restriction of airflow into and out of the lungs that makes breathing difficult. COPD is a term for sufferers who have been diagnosed with or show signs of emphysema and/or chronic bronchitis. In Texas, COPD is a health concern for many, in part due to air pollution levels and occupational hazards. The Lung Institute is ready to help patients with COPD treatment in Texas.
Lung Disease and COPD Prevalence in Texas
Residents of the Lone Star State are very proud of where they call home, but the climate in certain regions can make living with COPD difficult. According to the CDC, a person is more likely to have COPD if he or she is over the age of 40 and has a history of smoking, has been exposed to environmental or occupational pollutants, or shows any COPD symptoms.
What is Cellular Therapy for COPD?
The Lung Institute in Dallas, Texas, offers cellular therapys with adult autologous cells. The cells come directly from an adult patient’s body only to be administered to the same patient. This decreases the potential of rejection and undermines any possible controversy about cellular therapy.
The Lung Institute provides two unique cellular therapys: venous (blood-derived) and bone marrow derived. During a physician consultation, the recommended cellular therapy will be determined based on the patients’ health history and their current condition. Once the patient has the cellular therapy, the cells target the damaged tissue or organ in order to promote healing, improve lung function, and hopefully offer a better quality of life.
What Else Can I do While I’m at the Cellular Treatment Center in Texas?
With the Lung Institute situated near the heart of downtown Dallas, Texas, enjoying what this wonderful city has to offer is close by. Stay entertained by visiting one of Dallas’ scenic parks or try some of the local cuisine.
If you’re looking for a scenic park to enjoy some fishing, birding, photography, or a picnic, then check out Cedar Hill State Park. Two unique ecosystems meet here—the rolling tallgrass prairie and the limestone escarpment. With so much natural beauty, you might forget you’re in near the city of Dallas. Watch for birds such as roadrunners, red-tailed hawks, eastern bluebirds, great horned owls. If you’re in town from May through August, you may even spot a painted bunting—the bird that looks like it flew through a rainbow.
Just north of downtown Dallas, Cattleack BBQ nestles in an industrial office park. The shop has very limited hours: Thursday and Friday from 10:30 AM until 2:00 PM. If you don’t show up by 11:00 AM, you may find yourself waiting in a long line. However, if you find yourself waiting, don’t worry because the food is worth the wait. If you’re new to artisan BBQ, be sure to ask for samples of each type of meat you’d like to try. They will be more than happy to offer you a sample.
