Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic lung condition affecting more and more Americans every year. One patient who was struggling with COPD was Judy S., and she had a low quality of life before finding help at Lung Health Institute.
Judy’s life was a series of struggles before her Lung Health Institute treatment. There was no way she could walk across a room in her home, and she felt breathless all the time. Oxygen was a 24/7 companion for her. Even at night, Judy had to use a CPAP machine so that she would have enough oxygen.
At one point, Judy went to a specialist, and they weighed her and gave her some pills to take. She was instructed to come back again in 3 days, and when she came back, she was weighed again. To her surprise, she had lost 9 pounds, and the doctor informed her that all that weight was fluid from her lungs. “I felt like […] I was going to die shortly at that point,” Judy says.
In spite of everything her doctors were doing for her, Judy felt like she needed something more. She started looking up alternative treatments online, and that research led her to Lung Health Institute’s website. After seeing that there was a clinic near her in Tampa, Florida, she decided to make an appointment.
Her first treatment at Lung Health Institute showed Judy just how much her life could improve. She was able to get off oxygen completely, and using the CPAP machine at night became a thing of the past. From not being able to walk across the room, she is now able to walk around at the store. Going to the movies and climbing stairs are activities that are possible for her now. These positive changes in her life helped to ease the depression that her COPD had caused her to feel. The culmination of her recovery was that she and her husband were able to go on a weeklong Caribbean cruise with a huge group of family members. “It was incredible,” Judy says.
She is such a strong believer in the treatment offered by Lung Health Institute, that she encourages other COPD patients to check it out. “Please try to come because it really improves your life and probably will save your life. So, anyone listening to this that needs help, please be confident and hopeful because there is help.”
At Lung Health Institute, we’re proud to offer a natural treatment for COPD and other chronic lung diseases called cellular therapy.
When patients receive cellular therapy, a sample of the patient’s own blood is taken, and therapeutic cells are separated and concentrated from it. These cells include platelets, proteins, growth factors and other beneficial cells, and the concentrated cells are then returned into the bloodstream. This may help promote the repair of damaged tissue and reduce inflammation, which can allow patients to Breathe Easier™ and improve their quality of life.
Take the next step to Breathe Easier. Contact one of our patient coordinators today for more information or to schedule a free consultation.
