Why The Lung Institute’s Minimally Invasive Stem Cell Therapy Rejuvenates Lungs And Not Other Body Parts
In November, at the Third International Congress on Responsible Stem Cell Research in Italy, Jack Coleman, Jr., M.D., a doctor at the Lung Institute, spoke about using stem cells as a therapeutic tool. Lamenting that not enough research is done in the United States, except by the government, Dr. Coleman hopes that international advances in stem cell research will benefit U.S. healthcare consumers with lung diseases seeking to improve the quality of their life.
According to PR Web, few people realize how useful their own stem cells can be in healing their body, however, as testimonials appear on various lifestyle websites attesting to the effectiveness of stem cell therapy for COPD, pulmonary fibrosis and other chronic lung diseases, more patients are deciding to try alternative treatment when their doctors have exhausted all the options available to them.
At the Lung Institute, the physicians practice regenerative medicine, where the goal is to restore lung functionality, as opposed to merely treating a person’s symptoms. When an individual with a chronic lung disease seeks treatment at the Lung Institute, their own stem cells are harvested from their body and then returned in their bloodstream, where the cells are trapped once they reach the lungs. Once in the lungs, the stem cells can replicate into healthy lung tissue, however, the stem cells do not travel any further, so they are not effective at treating other diseases in the body.
For individuals interested in determining if they are a candidate for stem cell therapy, the Lung Institute offers a complimentary review of the person’s medical records. They also hold webinars and seminars to explain in detail how stem cell therapy works. Few doctors offer this innovative treatment since it isn’t taught in medical schools yet, however, the Lung Institute employs physicians who have undergone additional training to treat chronic lung diseases using stem cells.
While stem cell therapy, like any other treatment, is not guaranteed to work for everyone, the Lung Institute.com released their most recent COPD patient outcomes, finding that over 80 percent of the people treated at the Lung Institute reported an improved quality of life.
