COPD Patients Breathing Easier

COPD, which is short for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a term used to describe a range of lung conditions including chronic bronchitis, emphysema, some types of bronchiectasis, and refractory asthma. In the initial stages, patients are often asymptomatic, but will typically experience an increasing degree of breathlessness as the disease progresses. COPD is characterized by restricted airflow in the lungs. Other symptoms include wheezing, frequent coughing, and a tight feeling in the chest.

An estimated 30 million Americans suffer from COPD. Worldwide, it affects 600 million people. In about half of these people, the disease is silent and the person is unaware they have COPD. Early screening with spirometry tests can help prevent an irreversible loss of lung function. There is currently no cure for COPD and treatment is primarily symptomatic. Now, researchers are finding that stem cell therapy in COPD patients may prevent further damage from occurring and may improve the person’s quality of life.

Real World Evidence

Gary V, a patient of The Lung Institute, received treatment for his COPD using stem cells from his own body and has seen a significant improvement in quality of life. He is happier and feels healthier. “I don’t get sick so much anymore. The therapy is working. It’s been good,” he says. The treatment has helped calm down the inflammation and other symptoms from the restrictive and obstructive lung disease in Gary and many other patients treated at the clinic’s Tampa, Nashville, Scottsdale, Pittsburg, and Dallas locations.

Scientific Evidence

A pilot study of 100 patients at The Lung Institute found that stem cell treatment led to improvement in quality of life for 84 percent of the patients within 12 weeks of treatment.

Current treatments for COPD are limited by the inability to stimulate alveolar wall formation. In addition, our understanding of the disease process at a molecular level is incomplete. As a result, treatment for COPD primarily addresses the patient’s symptoms rather than slowing the progression of the disease or reversing the changes in the lungs. Bronchodilators and corticosteroids form the mainstay of treatment for COPD.

Stem cells are undifferentiated and multipotent cells, i.e., they can differentiate into many different types of tissues. Human mesenchymal stromal cells produce growth factors and cytokines in large quantities. These bioactive factors give stem cells their inherent anti-inflammatory properties, thus contributing to repair and regeneration in many parts of the body.

Personalized Treatments: The Future of Medicine

Currently, most diseases, including COPD, are treated with standardized therapies which are chosen based on efficacy and safety demonstrated during clinical trials. However, each human being is a unique individual with a varying response to treatment. Stem cell therapy offers the chance to tailor the treatment to each patient’s unique disease state by testing the individual’s response to the therapy in the laboratory.

Stem Cell Therapy for COPD

Stem cell treatment for COPD is not a miracle cure for the disease, but rather something that can help alleviate symptoms and improve quality of life. This could mean anything from coming off 24×7 oxygen to being able to walk more than a few steps without becoming short of breath. Patients should understand that just like any other treatment, stem cell therapy will not work for everyone. However, for many patients struggling with lifestyle-limiting COPD, stem cell therapy offers real hope that they will be able to breathe easier.

  1. 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 Health Herbal Clinic,i read reviews from other previous patients who used the herbal formula, my symptoms totally declined over a 5 weeks use of the COPD natural herbal formula. i am now doing very well, my lungs are totally repaired!!

  2. I had chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) for 15 years. My first symptoms were dry cough, chest tightness and shortness of breath. My first chest x-ray only showed bronchitis. Finally I went to a pulmonologist, After many tests it was a CT scan that showed COPD, and scarring in my lungs. I quit smoking 17 years and 6 months ago. But the damage has been done. I got to the point I couldn’t catch my breath and was coughing so hard I thought the top of my head would blow off. The day after I had the scan I was on oxygen the next night and was on it 24/7. December 2017 my pulmonologist and 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.

  4. I was diagnosed with Emphysema. My symptoms included shortness of breath, dizziness, lack of oxygen to all body parts, numbness of fingers, no energy, no appetite, fatigue, and bloodshot eyes. I was living at a place that has mold and mildew in the air conditioning unit. I also smoked a pack a day for 20 years. The Pulmonologist started me on Spiriva and Advair plus nose sprays, to reduce symptoms and slow down progression but I could not tolerate them for long due to severe side effects so I opted not to go on prescription medicines but decided on using herbs instead, October 18, 2017 after being on the herbs you recommended, i had a total recovery from Emphysema disease with this natural herbal formula treatment.
