COPD is an disease that can severely impact those who suffer from it. Symptoms of COPD and its related conditions include:
- Shortness of breath
- Tightness in the Chest
- Excess mucus, especially upon waking up
- A chronic mucus-producing cough
- Frequent respiratory infections
- Depleted energy levels
- Unexpected weight loss

The two most common conditions that lead to COPD are emphysema and chronic bronchitis. Emphysema is caused by prolonged exposure to cigarette smoke or irritating gases that destroy the tiniest air passages of the lungs known as the bronchiolesis. Chronic bronchitis is inflammation of the lining of the lungs’ bronchial tubes that causes a mucus-producing cough that lasts for three months at a time for at least two consecutive years.
Stem Cell Treatment for COPD
Thankfully, stem cell therapy is showing great results in treating this disease that affects millions of adults in the United States. Recent medical studies have shown that stem cell treatment for lung disease is having a positive impact for sufferers. In this non-invasive treatment autologous stem cells harvested from a patient’s own bone marrow are separated and then administered into the body intravenously.
Studies have shown that autologous stem cell therapy for COPD is safe and produces no known disruptive side effects. Patients in clinical tests have shown improvements in their condition and quality of life.
