The goal of founding the Lung Institute was to improve the quality of life of patients with various respiratory illnesses such as asthma and COPD. Chronic lung diseases make it difficult to perform simple tasks like walking, cooking or taking a shower. They include COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) and pulmonary fibrosis. The lung institute made it their responsibility to relieve suffering and prolong the quality of life using the best and safest means of treatment.

The Lung Institute has an extensive medical experience of more than a century. Its physicians have an established patient care experience that prioritizes quality of care and the patient’s safety. Today, it leads in the medical world as a provider of regenerative stem cell therapy for chronic lung diseases. The revolutionary life changing treatment method has earned the Lung Institute a worldwide reputation in the medical arena.

Stems cells are essential to all organisms. They can form any body tissue by self-renewing and replicating. Adult stem cells exhibit a quality referred to us plasticity. That is, cells from one tissue of the body can transform and function as another tissue. Plasticity is the quality that makes the use of stem cells possible and efficient in regenerative medicine, especially for tissue healing.

The stem cell treatment protocol involves three steps. The first step is to harvest the stem cells from the bone marrow or blood of the patient. They are then separated from other cells in the collected sample before being reintroduced in the patient’s blood stream. Usually, any item introduced in the body is available throughout the body through transportation by blood. However, studies by the National Institute of Health showed that the lung traps stem cells.

Once stuck, they will not only replicate and auto-renew but also function as lung tissues. As a result, they slow down the progression of lung disease and improve the natural healing process. The advantage of stem cells therapy over the traditional treatment options is that it reaches beyond relieving symptoms to hindering disease progression. Besides, it poses no risk of the adverse side effects common with conventional therapies. For more information, visit the Lung Institute’s Facebook page and website at lunginstitute.com.
