Stem Cell Therapy Leaps Into the Future Helping To Cure Lung Disease

Many people today suffering from emphysema or chronic bronchitis may have COPD, (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). According to Hawaii News Now, this illness restricts the airflow in and out of the lungs, causing extreme breathing problems.

COPD limits patients from walking, participating in normal activities and weakens their lung capacity. When the lungs are limited to oxygen, less oxygen is transported in the flow of blood leaving the heart and lungs carrying oxygenated blood cells through the body. Patients with this disease become susceptible to many illnesses including pneumonia.

Cigarette smoking is the main cause of emphysema causing the lungs to become inflamed and unable to fill to capacity when inhaling. The damage to the lungs from smoking is said to be irreversible and the lung’s ability to expand and deflate with each breath deteriorates.

The Lung Institute is now treating COPD, Emphysema, Chronic Bronchitis, Bronchiectasis and Pneumoconiosis with the healing power of stem cells. This new process uses autologous stem cells. Autologous stem cells therapy is a treatment using the patient’s blood cells. Blood cells referred to as plasticity, meaning the cells are removed from one part of the body and the cells have the ability to transform into other types of tissue needed by the body, replicating required cells.

The process is simple says The stem cells are removed from the patient by way of blood. The cells are then separated and intravenously returned to the patient through the heart. The stem cells are quickly transported to the lungs where they are caught in a pulmonary trap immediately beginning to produce new healthy cells and released into the bloodstream. When the lungs release this new blood into the system, healthy oxygenated cells are distributed throughout the entire system. Problems can originate in the pulmonary trap if the blood flow does not leave the lungs continuing through the bloodstream.

Consultation to ensure patients are candidates for successful stem cell therapy are available at the Lung Institute therapy clinics. Patients with such lung disorders are encouraged to contact the Lung Institute at 800-729-3065 if they feel they are candidates for this innovative stem cell therapy treatment. Facebook:

The stem cell therapy process is performed as an outpatient process. A total of three days is required as an outpatient to administer the treatment.
