COPD New Treatments

Are you interested in learning more about the new treatment options available for COPD?

If you suffer from COPD, you are likely tired of the fatigue, shortness of breath, and reliance on external oxygen tanks the disease forces upon you. Your doctor has probably already advised you of the more traditional treatments for COPD, including medication and surgery, but are you aware of the new treatments currently available? Below are just a few of the new treatment alternatives for COPD, including stem cell therapy, an exciting new prospect that may be able to truly reverse the lung damage caused by COPD:

Herbal Remedies: Herbs have been used for hundreds of years to treat a variety of different diseases and ailments. While the beneficiary effects of herbal remedies for COPD have not yet been clinically proven, herbal remedies are becoming increasingly popular as an alternative treatment method.

Antioxidants: Antioxidants are substances that occur naturally in many fruits and vegetables that help to protect cells from damage related to free radicals. While there is clinical evidence available to prove that antioxidants do offer several health benefits, it is still unclear whether they can offer tangible results for patients with COPD.

Stem Cell Therapy: Unlike other treatment methods, which are capable of treating only the symptoms of COPD and helping to reduce future damage to the lungs, stem cell therapy has the power to actually create healthy, new lung tissue and reverse damage. COPD can currently be treated using adult stem cells to regenerate lung tissue, and the stem cells can often be harvested from the patient’s own body. Stem cell therapy is quickly making headlines as a promising new treatment method--and even possible cure—for COPD.
