COPD Treatment Takes Center Stage

sullyArticle Sponsored by The Lung Institute

By – David Ebner

Although not much will compare to the cultural phenomenon that was the Beatles coming to America, a new treatment for lung disease is starting to build a fan base around stem cell therapy.

The world will never forget the momentous day when four young men from Liverpool, England, walked onto the stage of the Ed Sullivan show in 1964. The Fab Four strolled onstage, squinting in the glare of the lights and smiling at the squealing fans, and that grainy black and white image became the music history icon of the “British Invasion.”

Stem cell research appeared on the world stage with much less fanfare. There were no screaming fans or standing ovations when doctors conducted the first stem cell treatment in the form of a bone marrow transplant in 1956. The painstaking hours scientists spent researching and studying cells in laboratories across the world passed unremarked upon in the pages of Life Magazine. Even in 2012, when John B. Gurdon and Shinya Yamanaka won a Nobel Prize for their discovery that “mature cells can be reprogrammed to become pluripotent,” enthusiasm was limited mostly to the medical community.

Adult Stem Cells

The advent of stem cell research may seem inconsequential in comparison to the rise of the Beatles or Elvis Presley, but its impact on the medical industry is nothing less than revolutionary. Although the ethical implications of using embryonic stem cells have a high-profile and controversial history, knowledge of adult stem cells—cells present inside the body of every adult, remains relatively obscure. Adult stem cells live in the blood and bone marrow, and can be extracted and reintroduced into different parts of the body, as needed. For example, when bone marrow stem cells are extracted, isolated and reintroduced to the lungs of the patient with a progressive lung disease, the stem cells have the potential to morph into lung cells. The hope is that the new cells will be disease-free and promote healing, increasing lung function. For someone suffering from a debilitating disease, such stem cell therapy could mean the difference between struggling for air and singing “Twist and Shout” in the shower.

Stem Cell Treatment in use Today

Physicians at the Lung Institute have been performing such procedures since 2013, increasing the quality of life for over 82 percent of the patient’s they’ve treated as reported by the patients themselves. During a stem cell therapy procedure, cells are extracted from the patient’s blood or bone marrow tissue. The cells are then isolated and returned intravenously. This outpatient procedure is completed over three days and is considered minimally invasive.

According to the Lung Institute’s Medical Director, Jack Coleman Jr. M.D.,

“Stem cells are important because they offer a different approach. Instead of treating symptoms simply to make the patient more comfortable, stem cell therapy targets the disease and can promote healing, challenging conventional medicine’s fatalistic mindset that there’s nothing more we can do.”

It’s difficult to imagine a medical breakthrough stealing the show from the latest trending celebrity. However, real people have sought these innovative treatments, and are already seeing these advancements make a difference in their lives. They may not be screaming like the crazed Beatles fans of the sixties, but the alternative treatment fan base grows every day among people who are breathing easier thanks to stem cell therapy.

If you or a loved one suffers from COPD or another lung disease, the Lung Institute may be able to help with a variety of stem cell treatment options. If you’re looking to take control of your health, and wonder if you qualify, don’t wait. Click here to find out more information about the Lung Institute and see if you qualify for this innovative treatment.

No fetal or embryonic stem cells are utilized in Lung Institute’s procedures. All treatments performed at Lung Institute utilize autologous cells, meaning those derived from a patient’s own body.

Thank you for posting this. My dad was diagnosed with ALS about 6 month and a half ago after 1.5 years of undiagnosed symptoms. We are just beginning this journey and it’s very frightening we started multivitamincare org immediately because they have the right medicine to cure this als disease permanently , to say the least. The absolute certainty of the whole thing is the hardest to grasp, I wouldn’t see my father go down this road because of the help of natural organic formulas that was applied immediately . Some days are hard and others are easy all I’m saying that there cure at there multivitamincare. org Your post gave me a lot of perspective and I thank you for that,ALS is a chronic disease that took my dad many months to overcome. God bless

I have had ASTHMA my whole life but about 7 years ago my asthma got so bad and was diagnosed of EMPHYSEMA/COPD which was most likely due to the asthma. I was on double antibiotics and steroids, still didn’t feel any better. My lungs were constantly wheezing in all four chambers, i already used Advair, Spiriva, and Albuterol in my nebulizer, they just didn’t do much. It was hell for me due to the severe difficulty breathing. My sister in-law told us about Rich Herbs Foundation where she ordered herbs that effectively treated her arthritis. We ordered their COPD TREATMENT after reading alot of positive reviews from other patients, i am happy to report the COPD TREATMENT was very effective for my lungs condition, every one of my symptoms including difficulty breathing, respiratory infections, chronic cough and wheezing has simply stopped. Visit www. richherbsfoundation. com. I will be 52 soon and have never been healthier

Hello you are welcome
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs. Symptoms include breathing difficulty, cough, sputum production and wheezing. It’s caused by long-term exposure to irritating gases or particulate matter, most often from cigarette smoke. People with COPD are at increased risk of developing heart disease, lung cancer and a variety of other conditions.
Emphysema and chronic bronchitis are the two most common conditions that contribute to COPD. Chronic bronchitis is inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes, which carry air to and from the air sacs (alveoli) of the lungs. It is characterized by daily cough and sputum production. Emphysema is a condition in which the air sacs (alveoli) at the end of the smallest air passages (bronchioles) of the lungs are destroyed as a result of damaging exposure.though the scientist said that there is no cure for COPD then i undergo for re screech for the herbal remedy for the cure With proper management, most people with COPD can achieve good symptom control and quality of life, well liable to die, the cost of my herbal remedy to this virus is 1. benoslydkine leaves
2.water from ozala sea

4. kokomanido back tree but patents are to pay fro deposit at lest sum money for this then after receiving the cure then he or she can as well pay for the balance as soon as possible okay my dear you have noting to worry about waiting to hear from you as soon as possible. Regard below are the sample of my herb for copd okay i will be waiting to hear from you soon.

I know a man that, if still alive, was given a few months to live 11 years ago. I met him five years ago. He had stem cell treatment in The Phiippines by a Dr. Sam Bernal, a former Harvard Professor and Dr. at UCLA Medical Center. Not only did he not die (as seen from my having met him five years later) but he was completely cured of LUNG CANCER that had metastasized all over his body. Conventional treatment in the US had left him blind in an eye and hearing impaired.
A few years later I learned of a friend who’d been diagnosed with stage four lung cancer. I called a Florida Cancer center asking about stem cell treatment. The woman who answered said that they didn’t believe it worked on what she called hard lung tumors, but did work on blood and lymphatic cancers, which were the only ones they were treating with the person’s stem cells.
Anecdotal, but true.

My younger brother and family lady friend both have COPD. They both have found amazing help breathing using a product called Resprin. Check it out at resprin.com. Cost about $30.00 for months supply. My brother completely gave up two prescription drugs within the first two weeks.

My dear wife died due to COPD. If this treatment can really work it should pursued as fast as possible to extend or save the lives of loved family members. Just as we are pursuing good safe cures for cancer.

My condolences for your loss. When I went for my first visit to the Lung Institute, staffers there told me that I was in much better condition than almost all the other patients they had seen. It seems that most people let their conditions go until they are very close to dieing. And that definitely reduces the amount of healing that can occur.

I took the first treatment with the plan of buying a few added years of life, during which time the field of stem-cell therapy will advance, and perhaps a future treatment will be better, longer lasting and less expensive. I’m 75 now and have much greater mobility and far more enriched experiences than I had been having before the treament.

My next treatment promises to be better and about 25% less cost, so my plan is working so far, but better than I thought it would.

I feel sure that the Lung Institute is not the only facility doing this research and performing such procedures. The article would have seemed less like an advertisement if other institutions had been cited. Self-promoting articles are suspect in my mind.

Your point seems to indicate that, for starters, it might be wise to view their website. Or just google “stem-cell COPD therapies”.

Who is David Ebner who wrote this article? Is he connected to the Lung Institute? Did the Lund Institute pay AMAC to run this article and advertisement?

What’s wrong with the article? Stem cell research and use is a growing part of medicine. I wish I had the advantage of this when I practiced medicine. This has the potential to save millions of lives in the near future.

Nothing wrong with the article. I am just trying to verify the claims that LUNG INSTITUTE make about their therapy. I am a little leary of being sold a bill of goods.

You can read my post on this list. I am one of many satisfied patients of the Lung Institute. I personally know four other people who have used the therapy for several different kinds of lung problem.

You may notice that I did not recommend that anyone else should definitely use the therapy, but that anyone with lung problems check out the Lung Institute. Call them, go to their wedbite, ask for the phone numbers or emails for satisfied clients.

I am one of the past patients who correspond with people who are interested in getting help with problems similar to mine.

If you need help with a lung problem, please check out their website http://lunginstitute.com/

I am not paid, reimbursed, or benefit in any way by recommending the website. I am just so thankful for the people who told me about it, that I feel it’s my duty to share my experience with others in need.

I received my firtst stem-cell therapy in May, 2015, and had excellent improvement in my breathing. I was diagnosed with COPD/Moderate Emphysema in 2006, and by 2015, I was considering getting supplemetary oxygen to be more mobile. After my stem-cell treament, I was amazed at the changes in my life. I could do more things more easily, like chores, laundry, walking to the mailbox each day, working in my garage studio making jewelry, and even vacuuming my carpets. My memory seems to have imporved and my creativity is greater.

The treatment I had is described in the Lung Institute’s brocure as the Adipose Treament, which consists of two sources of the stem-cells; some from my blood, taken in the ususal manner from a blood vessel in the arm, and another bathc that was taken from the fat on my belly, by lipo-suction. The extracted blood and fat cells were treated in alaboratory and later replaced in my body, the blood stem-cells by a veinous drip and the adipose stem-cells by breathing them in as a vapor.

I would compare the treatment to be about as invasive as a routine dental treament with anesthesia, drilling and filling. I’ve had more invasive dental work done for my dentures and periodontal treatments.

My upcoming treatment will be the Bone Marrow and Blood work combination. I was told that research by the Lung Institute and others indicated that the Bone Marrow was more effective. The field of stem-cell research and treatment is so new that most insurance companies do not endorse it yet, but it is becoming more common, and the areas of applicaions is expaning. I’ve heard of uses for knee joint problems, spinal problems, and I’m sure there are or will be dozens of other uses for it as the field expands.

I heartedly endorse the work done for me by the Lung Institute of Tampa, Florida, and recommend that if you even think that stem-cell thera[py may be helpful to you or a friend or family member, don’t hesitate to contact the Lung Institute for more information.

Refer to article in Sciencenews.org, 03/13/2016, for information on using stem cells from fat. They indicate that these cells may be better than bone marrow. It is new research.
