The War On Lung Disease: Traditional Treatments vs Stem Cell Therapy


Sponsored by Lung Institute 

War is hell—particularly when the battleground is inside your own lungs. Unfortunately, for millions of Americans, chronic lung diseases such as COPD, pulmonary fibrosis and emphysema seem to be winning that war. Across the U.S. 6.3% of the adult population have been diagnosed with COPD.

Worse still, as the disease’s symptoms of fatigue, coughing and shortness of breath can often mimic the natural aging process, it’s estimated that another 25 million Americans are currently undiagnosed. As the third leading cause of death in the U.S.—with 730,000 COPD-related hospitalizations in 2011 alone—this a national problem, a problem that is often tragically ignored.

So, what are we doing about it?

Sadly, not that much. Although there are a variety of traditional treatment options, these choices can have their benefits and downsides. As an obstructive lung condition that sparks feelings of breathlessness, traditional medications have included inhalers, medications and supplemental oxygen. Though these treatments can open airways, calm down aggressive symptoms, and in the case of oxygen, address oxygen deprivation directly, these standard treatments are not without their drawbacks.

To start, these medications can be exorbitantly expensive over time—particularly on fixed incomes—creating situations where prescriptions are given up completely rather than forfeit the cost of another refill. In other cases, the side-effects of medications can be worse than the symptoms they’re designed to combat, causing weight loss or gain, nausea, headaches and dizziness. Supplemental oxygen, however, can become an anchor, reducing the mobility and quality of life of those who become tied to it.

However, in the fight against lung disease, a breakthrough may be here to end the war.

Recently, the development of regenerative medicine (the practice of using the body’s own cells to heal itself) has exploded, allowing innovative upstarts like the Lung Institute to enter the fight.

As opposed to traditional treatment options, stem cell therapy involves the careful separation of stem cells (the body’s natural healing mechanism) from a patient’s blood or bone marrow, returning them into the bloodstream where they come to rest within the lungs. Working to relieve inflammation (which opens the airways and allows easier breathing), these specialized cells may also aid in slowing disease progression—a feat that few, if any, traditional medications can attest.

Though the battle may be hard, no war is lost without surrender. Keep fighting.

People suffering with COPD should check out Resprin.com. I know several people who have benefited greatly with this product which is not very expensive. $22.00 at Amazon.com the last time I looked. My brother learned about it 3 years ago and stopped taking two COPD drugs within the first week. He is still taking it daily and says he would not even consider stopping it. A month after starting it he went to his doctor for a pulmonary volume test. It was so good she told him e could stop taking the two drugs. He didn’t mention the he had quit them a month before.

I had the stem cell therapy and highly recommend it. The sad part is, is that it is not covered by insurance at this time. Would love to be able to have a booster, but right now find it cost prohibitive. When I get out of breath my recovery time is much faster. Some type of rehab therapy is really an added dividend.

I have been on prednisone at various dosages from the beginning along with various immune suppressant medications. I began taking tacrolimus in 2008 and have held off any progression of more scarring. I had shortness of breath and coughing. I was relatively active but I learned to pace myself. I have the best medical team that all work together.. As the disease progressed all medication stopped working, i was introduced to Health herbal clinic in South Africa who have successful herbal treatment to Pulmonary fibrosis and other lungs diseases. I spoke to few people who used the treatment here in USA and they all gave a positive response, so i immediately purchased the Pulmonary fibrosis herbal remedy and commenced usage, i used the herbal supplement for only 9 weeks, all symptoms gradually faded away, herbs are truly gift from God. contact this herbal clinic via their email healthherbalclinic @ gmail.… Read more »

Adult stem cell therapy may be the answer for many medical issues, but big pharma may not like it.

My twin sister was diagnosed with COPD few years ago. She was on a trial for some months. It turned out that the drug she was given was not a placebo, but the real thing and it was working. Then they pulled the plug on it saying it was not viable! So. they got her on another trial, that trial also was cancelled after a while. 2017 I ordered COPD herbal remedy from Best Health Herbal Centre online and they shipped it to me. She only used the COPD herbal remedy for 5 weeks, all her symptoms disappeared, she stopped wearing oxygen and my family doctor confirmed her, COPD free now. Is almost 5 months now, no more COPD. Please fellow oxygen user’s or COPD patients, don’t hesitate to purchase this incredible product via email : chiefdrlucky@gmail.com .Whats App or call +2349065398067

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 ww w. richherbsfoundation. c om. I will be… Read more »

After my 3rd pulmonary embolism in 2003, I was diagnosed with pulmonary fibrosis and I read that people usually die within 5 years. My specialist has me on blood thinners, prednisone and other steroids that I inhale daily. October 2006 I decided to go with natural treatment and was introduced to Mbeki Herbal Clinic natural organic COPD Herbal formula, i had a total decline of symptoms with this COPD Herbal formula treatment. The infections, shortness of breath, fatigue, dry cough and other symptoms has subsided. Somehow, the herbs managed to keep me alive for 13 years.Visit Mbeki Herbal Clinic official website

I was not really having a problem breathing at first. My throat was burning; I thought I had strep throat. I had pain in my neck, and there was swelling around my collar bone. The first doctor I went to said he did not know why there was swelling. He gave me antibiotics and told me that if the swelling was not better to come back in two weeks. I went back in two weeks and he said he did not know what was wrong. Since I do not have insurance, I went to a hospital emergency room, and they said I have COPD.The disease does not improve. My “good days” are far and few these days. My dad and his dad died from this. I am only writing this to inform others that nothing was really working to help my condition.I started on COPD herbal formula i ordered from… Read more »

I was looking for copd treatments for my husband who was 72yrs old,my husband has COPD and cancer, his condition was very critical which i was very afraid that will not survive it. His white blood count was very low right now and his doctors are planning on starting some chemo or other treatment soon.. I don’t believe he will last long if he does this.. His copd is getting worse even though he hasn’t smoked in 30 years. so i decided to come online to see if there will be better alternative,during my research i saw a lady post about doctor Abumere who has power over deadly diaereses,so i decided to contact him because i really do not care about what my husband was talking in all i want for him is for him to get well for me because he was all i have,my husband took the remedies… Read more »
