Breathe Easier With The Help of Stem Cell Therapy – The Lung Institute

Stem cell research has made tremendous advances over the last couple of years. People with chronic lung disorders have found help with their breathing difficulties through the stem cell therapy being offered through the Lung Institute.

The Lung Institute has been able to help people with COPD, Chronic Bronchitis, Pulmonary Fibrosis, Pneumoconiosis, Emphysema, Interstitial Lung Disease, and Bronchiectasis. People with these illnesses are being helped with stem cell therapy.

What Is Stem Cell Therapy?

The Lung Institute uses two therapy treatments. One treatment harvests the patient’s blood, removes and treats the stem cells, and returns the cells intravenously back to the patient. The other system is a bone marrow treatment, which is another method of removing stem cells.

When the blood is intravenously returned back to the patient through the right chamber of the heart, the stem cells immediately begin to replicate themselves within two heartbeats. Continuing this replication as the blood travels to the lungs immediately beginning the healing effects. The stem cells can get trapped in the lungs in an area called the “pulmonary trap”, explains Cedars-Sinai experts. This is not always a good sign, but the patient is watched for this entrapment of the newly established stem cells.

How Do Stem Cells Improve Damaged Lung Tissue?

Stem cells have duties and responsibilities. It is their specific job to travel throughout the body repairing the damaged area. If you have a cut on your finger and a couple of days after the cut you notice the area is beginning to heal. It no longer hurts, it is beginning to show signs of closing over and healing, possibly scabbing. It is the same with stem cells traveling through the body coming in contact with damaged tissue in the lungs, etc. The job of the stem cells is to repair and renew.

How Does This Repair Lung Disease

Lung disease is a chronic disease. The new stem cells will not eliminate chronic disease, but improve the symptom quality of life, and ease breathing difficulty. To read more about stem cell therapy, visit
