Over the last decade, stem cell treatment has been getting good results for an increasing list of maladies. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) which causes severe inflammation and destruction of lung tissue has been shown to be helped by this type of treatment as well. Stem cells are harvested from the patient’s own lungs, separated from other cells and replaced in the patient’s lungs. This “triggers” the replaced stem cells to begin replacing damaged tissue. As with any other medical treatment, results here can vary widely among patients. But results among many of those undergoing this therapy have been promising, and pulmonary specialists are excited about this new tool for fighting chronic lung disease.
And at the forefront of using stem cell therapy to combat chronic lung disease is the Lung Institute. Its treatment facilities use stem cells derived either from a patient’s blood or bone marrow, and use it to treat not only COPD but:
interstitial lung disease
The Lung Institute was founded by a group of pulmonary specialists from around the country who were concerned that only lung disease symptoms were being treated instead of the underlying diseases. By both treating symptoms and achieving healthier lungs through therapy, this organization has greatly improved the quality of life for many sufferers, and now has clinics in Pennsylvania, Florida, Texas, Tennessee, and Arizona. Check out the website: lunginstitute.com
While stem cell harvesting and transplanting may seem the stuff of science fiction, in the hands of Lung Institute specialists, it’s a minimally invasive two day procedure that is an out-patient event. From the first phone call to follow-up contact, Lung Institute employees help patients submit paperwork, book appointments, and walk them through the process of stem cell healing. And the results? Patients with as little as 15% lung capacity have reported significant improvement in daily functioning, while others have been able to resume abandoned chores, lifestyles, and more. So for those suffering from COPD and other lung issues that have had a crippling effect on routines, the Lung Institute may offer a way to enjoy life and taking a deep breath again.

WEN by Chaz Dean is a popular shampoo, conditioner, and styling treatment that comes in one bottle and works for every hair type. Emily McClure who has fine, thin, and oily hair has reviewed this product on Bustle.com. This product has various version that promise different outcomes. Emily selected the Fig version because it promised to provide hair moisture, bounce and shine.
On the first day that Emily begun using WEN Hair, she was concerned with the recommended amount of product that she would be using because she did not want to weigh down her fine grade of hair. WEN recommends using 10-16 pumps of their product for short hair, 16-24 pumps of their product for long hair and 24-32 pumps of their product for long. However, while Emily was massaging the product into her hair in the shower, she immediately felt her hair thickening. She noticed the bounce and shine in her hair after she blow-dried her hair.
On day 3, Emily decided to use the styling products that she would typically use to style her hair such as heat protectant and texturing paste, after she shampooed her hair with WEN. Emily noticed her hair getting flatter throughout the day but she was not concerned because her hair typically flattens throughout her day. However, Emily did notice that her hair retained its shine and healthy appearance.
On day 7 of Emily’s experiment, she was happy with the results that WEN had on her fine grade of hair. Based on these results, Emily has personally recommended this product to people with fine hair. Emily recommends that you wash and style your hair with WEN Cleansing Conditioner every morning. Her hair looks healthy and retains a great shine and bounce throughout the day.
