What is Stem Cell Therapy for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease?
Stem cell therapy for COPD is the most advanced and modern approach available for helping Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), which is to say, for addressing pulmonary conditions such as COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, chronic bronchitis, emphysema, and interstitial lung disease.*
According to the COPD Foundation, many people mistake their increased breathlessness for aging, when really, it could be an early symptom of COPD. COPD can develop with little to no previous symptoms, so it’s important to talk to your doctor when these symptoms of lung disease arise.
We offer a free consultation with one of our specialists to help answer your questions and begin a customized therapy plan based on your needs for treatment for COPD. Schedule an appointment today or enter your information below to get started!

The COPD Foundation reports that an estimated 30 million individuals in the U.S. suffer from COPD. COPD is the third leading cause of death in the U.S. What’s worse is that over half of the people who have symptoms do not know they may have mild to severe COPD. In Florida, 6.2 percent of adults are affected by COPD, while Kentucky is the state with the highest COPD presence, with 11.3 percent of adults diagnosed with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

Stem Cell Therapy For COPD Success Stories!
I am able to do things that I did when I was 30. I feel like I’m 18. I can’t tell you just how great this is. If you are listening, at least get the consultation.
“I had trouble breathing. Every little thing made me out of breath. Just walking, mowing the lawn, etc. I had my therapy session about 30 days ago, and I’m already feeling much better. I was able to mow my lawn on one of the hottest days with a push mower, and not be out of breath – not once!
I’ve been able to lose some of the weight that I gained quitting smoking two years ago. I’m just feeling like a whole new person.”*
“Now it’s like, 4 months now I’ve been on this stem cell, and it’s amazing. I feel great, and I don’t have to use half the stuff I used to anymore. I cut down on my nebulizer and also my hand helds.”*
“I can breath better, walk better. I do everything a lot better. I can even tie my shoe, I couldn’t before. I can tell the difference in breathing, overall all day experience is better. I am on some medications. Some of them I’ve quit taking.”*
“I had stem cell therapy for COPD 2 months ago. My oxygen level was 92 at the time, and if I moved very fast it was a bit lower than that. I was ready for oxygen full time, and I came and had my stem cell therapy for COPD. It’s wonderful. Right now my oxygen level is at 98. I’m much more active.”*
“It was the best thing I’ve ever did. I went to my lung doctor and she said ‘You’re looking good!’. My oxygen level was up. She checked my lungs of course. No wheezing for the first time in years. It actually was the stem cell that made my day because this is what has made my life better.”*
Five Ways to Control COPD with COPD therapies
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a major disability that can affect your functional capacity and quality of life. Common signs and symptoms of COPD are chronic cough, breathlessness, and sputum production. COPD may also bring anxiety, fear, depression, and stress to COPD patients.
In this case, it is important to perform self-management techniques to cope with the disease, to control symptoms and to continue with your daily routine.
Here is a list of five things COPD patients can do to help control and manage COPD. Read more about the COPD therapies below:
1. No Dairy
Milk contains essential vitamins and minerals; however, it is known to increase sputum production that can worsen signs and symptoms of the disease COPD. If you think you have severe COPD, You should avoid dairy products such as butter, cheese, ice cream, and yogurt.
2. No Gluten
Gluten can increase production of mucus that can plug the airways in the lungs. Gluten is a type of protein that can be found in barley, rye, wheat, and triticale. It is important to check for gluten-containing food.
3. Breathing Exercises
There are breathing exercises that you can perform to ease the way of getting the air you need. You can perform pursed-lip breathing by breathing in gently through your nose and breathing out with your lips pursed as if you are whistling. The relaxed, slow, deep breathing is done by breathing in gently through the nose and breathing out through the nose and mouth.
4. Eat Greens
Greens contain chlorophyll, which carry and bring in oxygen to your cells. This is why juicing greens and drinking them are so beneficial. Note: It is important to avoid juicing fruit, which contains too much sugar.
5. Use a Pulse Oximeter
A pulse oximeter is a device used to measure the percentage of hemoglobin saturated with oxygen in the arterial blood. A pulse oximeter is easy and affordable to use. It helps in monitoring COPD. It is important to use this tool and measure, because if the percentage drops below 93% it will damage the lungs further. Thus, it needs to be checked all the time.
There are still other options to optimize your physical abilities and improve your quality of life despite having COPD. Here at NSI Stem Cell, we use the most advanced technology for our patients, delivering safe and effective patient care with our stem cell treatment for COPD.* The NSI Stem Cell team will be delighted to give you more information about your condition and discuss the best options and COPD treatments for your health and comfort.
Symptoms of COPD are ongoing and tend to worsen over time. The first noticeable indication is an enduring cough and extreme shortness of breath. COPD sufferers often experience persistent coughing that produces mucus from the lower airways. Many people with chronic bronchitis have or will develop COPD. Inflammation of the lungs can cause long-term damage that can be difficult to reverse with COPD treatments. High pressure on the lung arteries can even strain the heart ventricles.
The most common causes of COPD are smoking of tobacco products and long term exposure to environmental and occupational air pollutants. This includes those in contact with harmful lung irritants including certain chemicals, dust, or fumes. Those with asthma and a genetic predisposition are more likely to develop this disease, as certain genetic factors can lead to the deterioration of the lungs. For instance, Alpha-1 Antitrypsin Deficiency (AATD) is a common genetic risk factor for emphysema and is caused by a deficiency of Alpha-1 Antitrypsin protein within the bloodstream. It’s recommended that people with COPD be tested for the presence of these genetic factors.
Furthermore, inflammation from inhaled irritants leads to scarring of the tissues and narrowing of the airways inside the lungs, making it difficult to breathe. A diagnosis of COPD is done by measuring airflow with lung function tests, x-rays, and the length of time a person has experienced symptoms. After a positive diagnosis, it is important to get COPD therapy immediately.
Often times, the different methods of COPD treatments that COPD patients use to manage the disease isn’t enough. Inhalers that are used in emergency situations provide short-term relief—same goes for inhalers that patients use twice a week. Inhalers have side effects, including rapid heart rate, blurred vision and additional coughing. Stem cell therapy, on the other hand, is non invasive and has virtually no side effects, unlike some other COPD treatments. Read below to learn how stem cell therapy can help COPD patients return to a normal life.
Stem Cell Therapy for COPD
NSI Stem Cell therapy does not require the use of medication, contraptions, or equipment, and it may take only around an hour to complete a session of stem cell therapy for COPD. The stem cells derived from your body are utilized for the therapy of lung inflammation and COPD. The process begins first with a physical exam and in depth patient history. We do this to give you the best proper diagnosis and therapy. If additional information is needed, we will conduct the necessary imaging or laboratory reports. We will then discuss patient desires and expected outcomes as well as educate on his/her condition and all possible therapy options.
The Stem Cell procedure is minimally invasive, gathering a sample of adipose tissue from the abdomen, usually by a simple liposuction procedure. Fat cells derived from the body are mixed with a solution before the separation stage. The solution is then put in a specially designed device in order to mix it properly. The bone marrow aspirate procedure is an alternative to adipose derived therapy for some patients.
Next, the stem cells are separated from the fat cells and are placed in a centrifuge which spins rapidly. After a few minutes the stem cells are ready for harvesting. The concentrated and activated cells are then returned into the bloodstream. The therapy is administered via IV as it travels through the bloodstream to the heart and the heart pumps the solution to the lungs. The stem cells introduced into the body can also divide through mitosis to produce even more stem cells.
After therapy sessions with Stem Cells, patients experience improvements in their symptoms caused by COPD.* Forced Volume Capacity increases, breathing improves, there is measurable increased lung function, mucus and phlegm are reduced, and scar tissue begins to heal and reverse to healthy tissue. These are just some of the major differences patients have been experiencing. This relief allows patients to increase their daily activities and movement, getting them back to a healthier, happier life.
Our Adipose (Fat)-Derived Stem Cell Therapy is an innovative therapy uniquely suited to respiratory conditions like COPD.* Yet many people are just learning about it now for the first time. These are not embryonic stem cells or cells from fetuses. These regenerative cells come straight from your own body just a few hours before they’re injected back into your body and put to work to heal disease or dysfunction.
