Patient Success Stories

Richard B

Treatment Age: 59

Location: Cedar Lake, IN

Condition: Pulmonary Fibrosis

“I had everything to gain and nothing to lose. This is the best I have felt in years.”

Richard’s life has been transformed by cellular therapy and is now back on the golf course two days a week.

After a long career working in a mill and breathing in fine particles, Richard was diagnosed with a severe case of Pulmonary Fibrosis. Over the course of several years, Richard struggled to breathe comfortably, and daily activities such as climbing stairs, taking a shower, and tying his shoes came to a halt.

After his local doctor struggled to determine an exact diagnosis, Richard and his wife traveled to Chicago for further examination and in-depth testing. Test results showed Richard’s lung capacity at only 49% and was told there was not much that could be done. Given a last resort medication, and told to consider a lung transplant to survive, Richard went downhill and the pain he endured daily lead him to say, “I want this over.”

Battling to hold conversations with family, and dealing with painful, non-stop coughing, Richard lived in a cycle of exhaustion with a tremendous number of medications including prednisone, inhalers, and nebulizers. During the lowest point in his health, Richard came to terms with his declining health and met with his sons to discuss very important details on how to care for the family after his passing.

But, deep down, there was still a desire to fight. “I don’t want to sit in a chair and wait to die,” shared Richard. Together with his family, they knew it was time to take control of his total health. His brother saw an ad for Centers for Respiratory Health, and this is where Richard’s transformation began.

“I had everything to gain and nothing to lose,” explained Richard. After he watched the testimonials on our You Tube account, he said, “I want to be where they are at.” The videos sealed it for him, and he immediately made his appointment to receive his first cellular therapy treatment.

“You can’t put a price on the ability to get your life back,” shared Richard

After Richards’ first cellular therapy treatment, he revisited the doctors in Chicago and his lung capacity increased to 61%. The crackling in his lungs is now gone, and he has returned to the golf course two days a week, enjoys daily walks with this wife, kayaking and fishing with his sons, has lost 45 pounds, plays the guitar in his band, and is off almost all medications and supplemental inhalers.

During the flu season, Richard fell very ill and was transported to the hospital. Expecting to be put on a ventilator, the doctors were amazed at this overall strength and decided against it. Richard and his family truly believe if it wasn’t for this cellular therapy treatment, he would not have survived the flu. “He would not have made it thru it,” says his wife, Cindy.

“I am living proof it worked for me, and I’ve got my life back,” shared Richard
