Stem Cell Therapy Is Changing The Way We Treat Lung Disease

The Stem Cell Miracle

Since the turn of the 21st century stem cells have served as one of the most important technological breakthroughs around. Hoping to find new ways to treat diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer’s Disease medical researchers have spent years investigating all possible uses of stem cells in treatment. The Lung Institute has revealed one of the first practical applications of stem cells in its treatment plan for lung diseases. Serving patients afflicted with everything from asthma to COPD, the Lung Institute is breaking ground with these stem cell treatments.

How Stem Cell Therapy Works

In an article by, the stem cell therapy offered by the Lung Institute is essentially a form of natural healing. First, stem cells are taken from the blood or bone marrow of the patient. Next, those stem cells are then injected into the afflicted area of the lungs. Once this happens the body can begin to use the stem cells to heal itself naturally. There is no need for physicians to do anything beyond observations after the treatment begins. The Lung Institute understands that there is nothing better for the body than for it to heal itself naturally.

The Potential Impact Of Stem Cell Therapy

The future the Lung Institute is creating looks bright. Stem cells provide new possibilities for patients suffering from a myriad of diseases. Asthma patients can run and exercise without reaching for their inhalers constantly. Someone suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, or COPD, can live life without the debilitating effects of the disease. There is no longer a need for an oxygen tank or any of the other awful setbacks so many victims of COPD suffer. This is ultimately what the Lung Institute is providing. They are finally free to live their lives exactly as they wish.
