Many people who suffer from shortness of breath caused by irritation in the lungs are diagnosed with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Also known as COPD, this condition grows worse over time and can lead to respiratory failure and heart failure. Because COPD can be fatal if allowed to progress without treatment, people with the disease turn to medical professionals for help.
Treatments for COPD vary depending on the severity of the disease, your age and your medical history. No pill or treatment can completely cure the disease, but modern medical advancements can help slow its progress and reduce the severity of its symptoms.
Since COPD cannot be cured, most treatments primarily focus on reducing inflammation and opening your airways to help you breathe better. After reviewing your symptoms and diagnosing the severity of your COPD, your physician will likely recommend some of the following treatments:
Another treatment that many people with COPD are trying is Lung Restoration Treatment™ from the Lung Health Institute. This form of cellular therapy for your lungs is a treatment that uses your own cells to reduce inflammation.
These cells are taken from a small sample of your blood that is withdrawn in a lab by one of our specialists. Concentrated forms of healing cells are then reintroduced into your bloodstream to fight lung disease.
