The Lung Institute Offers Natural Treatment Options for Pulmonary Fibrosis
Natural treatment options for pulmonary fibrosis can include making lifestyle changes such as getting more exercise, maintaining a healthy diet and quitting smoking. At the Lung Institute, we are proud to offer an additional natural approach to treating pulmonary fibrosis – cellular therapy. As the world’s only cellular therapy center that focuses exclusively on the treatment of lung conditions, we offer a unique opportunity to work with a dedicated medical team that truly specializes in pulmonary care through cellular therapy.
We offer cellular therapy, with the goal of reducing lung inflammation, improving lung function and potentially slowing the progression of pulmonary fibrosis. These forms include Blood-Derived Therapy (in which the cells are derived from the patient’s own blood). During the minimally invasive procedure, our caring medical team will:
- Draw the blood from the patient’s body
- Separate the cells from the other cells in our onsite lab
- Intravenously reintroduce the separated cells into the patient’s body to help stimulate the body’s natural healing processes
Because the cellular therapy we perform is autologous, or coming from the patient’s own body, there is very little risk of rejection. The treatment is performed on an outpatient basis over the course of two days, and most patients are able to return to their regular activities immediately following the procedure. While no treatment can reverse lung damage, regenerate tissue or cure lung disease, cellular therapy can potentially slow the progression of the condition and improve the patient’s overall quality of life.
