14 May Stem Cell Therapy for COPD in Mexico
R3 Stem Cell International offers stem cell therapy for COPD in Mexico. COPD stands for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and may significant affect an individual’s ability to perform simple activities of daily living.
COPD isn’t actually just one disease, it’s actually several combined together. One is emphysema, another would be chronic bronchitis. There is no cure for the condition, which may include the following symptoms:
- shortness of breath, after even mild exercise such as walking up a flight of stairs
- wheezing, which is a type of higher pitched noisy breathing, especially during exhalations
- chest tightness
- chronic cough, with or without mucus
- need to clear mucus from your lungs every day
- frequent colds, flu, or other respiratory infections
- lack of energy
These symptoms are typically progressive, and eventually patients become confined to a wheelchair and an oxygen tank. Traditional treatments are limited, and may consist of medications such as bronchodilators or steroid medications. These may have significant side effects. Steroids may lead to water retention, weight gain, endocrine problems and osteoporosis.
Lifestyle changes may help as well, such as quitting smoking and improving nutrition. There are a few surgical options which may include partial lung resection or even a lung transplant as a last resort. Obviously there are significant risks associated with lung surgery.
Stem cell therapy for COPD in Mexico is a fantastic option for those who are looking to improve their quality of life. The stem cell procedures at R3 are exceptional low risk, very affordable, and performed as an outpatient. Patients receive the treatment with either 30 or 50 million live stem cells through an IV and nebulizer.
The procedures are performed by licensed, experienced stem cell doctors. The biologics come from an accredited lab, with an impeccable safety record and testing that actually exceeds FDA standards in the US.
Does stem cell therapy for COPD work well? First off, initial studies demonstrated that stem cell procedures for lung conditions are very safe (Chest 2013). A 2020 study showed that umbilical cord derived stem cell therapy improved lung function and walking distance in a significant manner with a few treatments over two years (Karaoz et al, 2020).
Another 2020 study published in Stem Cell Research Therapy not only showed significant improvements in lung function and walking ability, but ALSO showed reductions in the amount of COPD exacerbations.
R3 International’s results with stem cell therapy for lung disease in Mexico has been extremely safe and exceptionally effective. We have treated many patients with COPD with no significant adverse events, and patients report the same outcomes with regard to increased walking ability and decreased exacerbations.
In addition, pulmonary fibrosis has responded well to stem cell treatment too. In the US, stem cell therapy for COPD costs well over $6k to $8k, and needs to be repeated every year.
At R3 Stem Cell International in Mexico, treatment with 30 million live stem cells is only 2950, and if patients need or want an additional 20 million live stem cells it’s only 1000 more! We help with travel logistics and also provide concierge transportation from San Diego into Tijuana. The stem cell clinic in Mexico is only 20 minutes from San Diego International Airport.
