Living life with lung disease can no doubt be challenging and problematic to the individuals affected. Those who live with lung disease typically have to come to terms with a depreciating quality of life. It can be overwhelming and may feel a little tragic at times. It doesn’t have to be this way, thanks to treatment options such as stem cell therapy.
It is important to remember that despite the challenges and complications lung disease can present in your life it is possible to dramatically improve it’s quality and reduce the amount of pain that you may be experiencing. At the Lung Institute, stem cell therapy is used to treat disease by utilizing autologous stem cells. These cells already exist in your body and are extracted from your tissues. Since these cells are natural to your body already, stem cell therapy is a safe option for those who are worried about the quality of treatment.
At the Lung Institute two treatment options are offered: blood (venous) and bone marrow. Blood (venous) works by extracting tissue from your blood while a bone marrow treatment takes a sample from the bones in your body. Both have been shown to be safe and effective.
The process of stem cell therapy at the Lung Institute works in three steps. First, stem cells are extracted from the individual and isolated. Then they are re-introduced through the bloodstream. Finally, the stem cells are carried through the blood and into the lungs, where the healing process begins and inflammation is reduced. Further details can be sourced from lunginstitute.com.
Many patients are giving this treatment great reviews and saying that it really has helped improve the quality of their lives. Patients who have gotten stem cell treatment have said that it has helped them to walk and get around more easily, do more of the activities that they enjoy, breathe better and with ease, and spend more time with their loved ones.
