The Lung Institute Breakthrough
The Lung Institute, an organization devoted to the study of lung disease, has announced it will now perform stem cell therapy for its patients. After years of debate and research, stem cells are finally in use among contemporary doctors. The treatments aren’t necessarily a panacea for everything, but they are producing vastly superior results to what doctors are currently able to obtain with conventional methods. Indeed according to Cedars-sinai, many patients are finally able to live their lives without the need for an inhaler or oxygen tank. It may have taken some time to develop this procedure, but the results are paying off.
Theory Turns Into Practice
The ultimate theory behind stem cell therapy revolves around the natural healing process of the body. Stem cells are used by the human body to repair damaged tissues and grow new health tissue. The Lung Institute is taking this understanding and using it to stimulate the repair of damaged lung tissue in its patients. Although the initial process is somewhat invasive, there is little need for further intervention once the adult stem cells are injected into affected areas. From that point on doctors can simply observe and record the pattern of the patient’s progress while the patient recovers.
Where Doctors Go From Here
From this point on the current paradigm of the medical world is headed into an entirely new direction. If the Lung Institutes current results hold up over time doctors in other fields of medicine will apply stem cell therapy to their work as well. We may see a future where doctors reject the use of powerful drugs with side effects in favor of stem cells to treat cancer and dementia.
The success stories posted on lifestylesafter50.com of the Lung Institute give great examples of exactly why physicians have worked so hard to develop stem cell treatments. There are COPD patients (http://www.hawaiinewsnow.com/story/33635903/copd-patients-are-saying-yes-to-stem-cells-at-the-lung-institute-in-tampa) who previously needed oxygen tanks that can now live their lives free from the restraints of their disease. When even more time has passed and the Lung Institute has a better understanding of stem cell therapy, we may see these stories improve.
