The Lung Institute Provides A New Lease On Life

The Lung Institute was founded to give individuals suffering from chronic lung and respiratory illnesses an opportunity to live a healthier and happier life. Some of the chronic lung diseases studied by The Lung include: chronic obstructive pulmonary disease known as COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, and interstitial lung disease.

According to The Lung Institute, autologous stem cells are blank cells that have not be assigned to any function yet. These special cells have the ability to renew and heal themselves. By using autologous stem cells, patients can heal from their body’s own cells. These healthy cells not only ease the symptoms of lung disease, but also work to stop the progression of the disease.

According to PR Web, traditional respiratory treatments only targeted the symptoms associated with the respiratory disease; as opposed to treating the disease itself. Patients treated for respiratory illnesses often suffered for years due to a lack of knowledge and research on properly treating the progression of the disease. Patients of The Lung Institute have access to great tools for education and empowerment. The Long Institute continues to lead in adult stem cell research for chronic lung diseases; offering articles, advice and resources to enrich the lives of those suffering from lung disease.

The Lung Institute focuses on using current condition and medical history from the past to make sure that each stem cell treatment gets the best possible results. For more info, visit
