What about stem cell therapy for treating IPF?

I am 4 years into having IPF. Can not tolerate any medications that are used for the symptoms. Have been thinking about alternative medicine, particulary Stem Cell Therapy. Want to know who has had it? and the results they had from the therapy?

Hi Ga-Ma Bell-Key,

Thanks for your post and welcome to EmpowHer.

Stem Cell therapy for Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis is relatively new although lately it seems as though it is the glimmer of hope for many living with IPF. If you're interested in stem cell therapy, it's your call. Since it is so new, chances are any possible negative effects have yet to have been found. Do your research, and if you feel like this is for you--go for it.
I went ahead and found some information for you to read if you haven't already done so :)


Wishing you the best,
