Stem cell therapy is a promising alternative treatment of diseases. Presently, in theory, there is no limit to what stem cell therapy could potentially treat. Research is underway for using it as a cure to Alzheimer’s, neurological disorders, deafness, arthritis, HIV/AIDS, various types of cancer, autism, and others.
Stem cell therapy falls under the category of ‘Regenerative Medicine’. A major push to do stem cell therapy is the need for faster results. Many people die waiting to receive their vital transplant because they are on the list for years and there are other individuals ahead of them. It has been suggested that 128 million people in the United States alone would benefit from doing stem cell therapy. Lung disease is the number three killer in the United States. According to lunginstitute.com, worldwide, COPD affects 600 million people.
How the stem cell therapy process works is a patient has their own stem cells extracted from their blood or bone marrow. The stem cells are then separated from the other cells in the sample taken. Since stem cells have what is termed ‘plasticity’ they can be transferred to another location in the body without losing their functionality. The stem cells are then injected into the bloodstream. Stem cells repair and renew damaged areas.
Since its founding in 2013, The Lung Institute has offered stem cell treatment for major pulmonary conditions like chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), emphysema, and chronic bronchitis. The Lung Institute has 5 locations in the United States: Scottsdale, Arizona; Tampa, Florida; Dallas, Texas; Seven Fields, Pennsylvania; and Franklin, Tennessee.
The Lung Institute did a case study and tested 349 of their own patients who were treated for COPD. Results showed that within a three month period of time 84.5% of patients found the quality of their life improved. The Lung Institute has a success rate of 83% from its 3,000 patients and counting. People looking for a serious and effective treatment of their lung condition can start the recovery process by talking to one of The Lung Institute’s patient coordinators.
