COPD Stem Cell Therapy
These days, the chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is among the common lung diseases that are affecting people. The disease contains some lung conditions including chronic asthma, emphysema, and chronic bronchitis which block the airflow within the lungs making it hard to breathe. Emphysema is a condition that gradually destroys tissues that surrounds the small sacs, known as alveoli. These tissues are responsible for the process of oxygen exchange in the lungs. When a person has emphysema, the air sacs become enlarged thus losing their elasticity.
Exhalation process can become a complicated process since the rate at which oxygen is transferred within breath is reduced. Chronic bronchitis leads to the occurrence of inflammation in the bronchial tubes which allow for air to pass through. Breathing becomes a hard task due to the nature of mucus as a result of the irritation. COPD can only occur when there are severe effects on the chronic asthma condition. According to recent studies, there is a connection between adult COPD and severe childhood asthma.
COPD is nowadays treatable in multiple forms such as steroids, vaccinations, surgeries, bronchodilators, transplants, and supplemental oxygen. Currently, there is no cure for this disease, and therefore the primary purpose of these treatments is to reduce the damages and alleviate the symptoms. The leading causes of this disease are pollutants and smoking, even though research is still current. There is a progressive and irreversible irritation to the lungs that is caused by this chronic condition. An effective way of treating COPD is through stem cell therapy.
Doctors use umbilical cord or adipose stem cells as a way of therapy towards your wellness. The healing process of your body is more effective and faster with these regenerative therapies. Stem cells can replace a lot of cells in the body which also include lung tissues. These cells heal the body through the replacement of the ones that are affected with the diseases hence regenerating new cells. Recently, studies have shown that it is possible to restore the damaged cells through stem cell therapy.
This has brought a lot of hope to those that are suffering from this degenerative disease. After treatment, patients have shown improvements in these symptoms: increased energy, reduction of dyspnea, increase in the ability to walk and perform daily tasks, enhanced mood, improved sleep patterns, and cut on supplemental oxygen reliance. With adult stem cell therapy, the body can be helped so that its natural repair kit can function more effectively. It is not possible to permanently reverse the lungs damages from COPD, even though the symptoms are manageable to prevent further injuries.
