I Can’t Breathe! Is There No Help For Me?

Ever since your first exacerbation of COPD, you have felt unable to breathe, and had to adjust your living conditions in order to accommodate the changed situation surrounding your breath. If you have an oxygen concentrator at home, you have learned to drag that long tube all over the house with you. You’re also learned the quick and easy ways and spots to stop and take a ‘breather’ from walking or doing housework. Your lungs are damaged, and you suffer the consequences of that damage. You long for the days when you could go for a walk, or jog, or even take a shower without help and without having to sit down. Now, you even have to have an oxygen bottle hanging over your shoulder to go shopping.

What if you could get rid of the bottles, the concentrator, the nebulizers, and the medications, and simply lead a normal life?

There is a therapy developed by the Lung Institute called stem cell replacement therapy. It involves the harvesting of stem cells from your own body and replacing them where they will do the most good. It is a relatively non-invasive treatment, and requires only a few overnights’ stay. According to Cedars-Sinai, the stem cells do not originate from a foreign source; they are from your own body, either from your blood or from your fatty tissue, depending on the treatment that is best for you. The Lung Institute has expanded its operations throughout the United States, and there is now a Lung Institute clinic close to you. You owe it to yourself. You owe it to your loved ones. Give the Lung Institute a call or go to lunginstitute.com and see what new hope you have to live a life free of that oxygen tube, bottle, and nebulizer.
