Stem Cell

  • By Lazy T

    Have done a little research on stem cell treatments. What opinion is in the community for this treatment?

    Hi Gene Turney and thanks for your inquiry. I think you may find some comments about Stem Cell therapy throughout our Facebook pages. You can access COPD on Facebook here: https://www.facebook.com/COPDDotNet/ While others who see you post (above) may comment, I thought you might find it helpful to look over the published material we have on our website: https://copd.net/news/stem-cell-therapy/
    Thanks for being part of our online community.
    All the best,
    Leon (site moderator)

    I’m not interested in stem cell, I want to know if anyone is familiar with using either medical cannabis or preferably CBD oil for COPD. I’ve read countless testimonies elsewhere that both products helped, because they both relax the lungs.

    I would appreciate any and all input; I am asking for my brother who is going to be 71 in September, too young to be told he has two years left (breaks my heart!) I read that CBD can actually reverse the effects of COPD. I really want to talk to others or someone who may know something about it or better yet, someone who has used CBD oil and had it work for them…I’ll want to know where it came from!

    Thank you!

      Hi CJohnson and thanks for your questions! I’m so sorry to hear your brother was told only two years! I thought you might like to know that we have many longtime COPD’ers on our site who’ve been living full lives for many years, even decades. Two of them are Derek and Mary – here are links to their lists of articles, if it’s helpful for you or your brother to check them out: here’s Derek’s: https://copd.net/author/derekc/ and here’s Mary’s: https://copd.net/author/mary-ultes/.

      To give you some more info on medical marijuana for COPD (and other community members might chime in with their experience as well) – I thought this article could be helpful: https://copd.net/living/risks-and-benefits-of-smokeless-marijuana/.

      Additionally, you may be interested in our Treatments page for more info: https://copd.net/treatment/. While there is not yet a cure for COPD, it IS treatable. I wish you and your brother the best on this journey, and we hope you’ll keep us posted on how you both are doing!

      I do hope this is helpful. Feel free to come by any time!

      Best,
      Jenn (COPD.net Team)
