Treating Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease(COPD)

 COPD, or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a silent killer that gets very little attention from the media or medical establishments.

But this serious lung disorder is the third leading cause of death in America, behind heart disease and cancer.

And it can become so severe that at times, you can barely breathe.

Conventional wisdom says there’s no cure. Mainstream treatments include bronchodilators, steroids, and oxygen masks. But these treatments only alleviate symptoms. They don’t get to the root of the problem.

Most doctors believe smoking is the primary cause of COPD.

But even if you never smoked, you’re still at risk. A Danish study tracked 6,600 people with COPD. They found a quarter of these patients never smoked at all.1 What’s harming lungs today is a direct result of our modern, polluted environment.2

Polluted air contains nanoparticles of particulate matter that damage your lungs. I’m talking about industrial toxins like mercury, lead, cadmium, and arsenic that penetrate deep in your lungs. These are the same toxins found in cigarette smoke.3,4,5

At the same time, exposure to indoor irritants are just as harmful – even in your own home. In fact, the EPA says the air in your home is between two and five times more toxic than what you breathe outside.

Doing Nothing is Not an Option

At the Sears Institute for Anti-Aging Medicine, I treat patients with a combination of hyperbaric oxygen therapy and glutathione.

HBOT – breathing 100% oxygen under higher pressure – allows your lungs to take in more oxygen. This has a double healing effect on your lungs. First, the higher pressure physically dissolves more oxygen into your red blood cells. When you suffuse your cells with oxygen, tissues and organs begin to function as intended.

But HBOT also activates stem cells. Your body uses stem cells to replace old or damaged cells with new cells, regenerating affected lung tissue.

Unfortunately, you lose stem cell activity with age and your body loses its ability to repair itself. But studies prove that alveolar stem cells in the lungs can be activated in COPD patients.6

Part two of my COPD protocol involves inhaling nebulized glutathione. A glutathione deficiency contributes to many chronic diseases including inflammatory lung conditions like COPD. Glutathione is one of the major antioxidants in the lining of the respiratory tract and nasal cavities. And it’s your body’s first line of defense against the oxidative stress that damages the extracellular matrix of the lungs.

But, in today’s toxic environment, your body uses every bit of glutathione it produces naturally to “clean-up” the harmful chemicals you breathe in. As a result, there’s nothing leftover to protect your lungs.

In a large meta-analysis, researchers looked at 18 studies involving 1,605 patients. They found that glutathione levels were “significantly lower in patients with COPD than control subjects.”7

Glutathione also acts as a powerful detoxifier. It binds toxins and transforms them into compounds that can be flushed from the body. This process creates a demand on the body to make new glutathione. But deficiency results when your lungs can’t keep pace with the demand. In my clinic, patients nebulize glutathione in a simple breathing treatment that takes about 15 minutes.

If you’re interested in treating COPD with HBOT and glutathione, please call my staff at 561-784-7852 for details.

2 Ways You Can Treat COPD At Home

There are natural ways you can open up the airways in your lungs easily at home. Here’s what I recommend:

1. Protect your lungs with CoQ10. CoQ10 is stored in the mitochondria of your cells. While mitochondria are in charge of producing energy, they also protect cells from oxidative damage.8 Your lungs face the most immediate threat from this damage because they have the most contact with the toxic oxygen in the air you breathe. People suffering from chronic lung conditions are even more deficient in CoQ10 than most.

Grass-fed beef and organ meat are your best sources. But I also suggest supplementing with 100 mg of ubiquinol CoQ10 daily.

2. Reverse lung damage with CBD. Recent studies show the anti-inflammatory properties of CBD can relax cells lining blood vessels, reduce lung inflammation, increase oxygen, and repair scarring and swelling in the lungs. This backs up an earlier study that found CBD helps open bronchial passes allowing patients to breathe more easily and avoid low blood oxygen levels.9

I recommend using an oral CBD spray that uses nanotechnology. This method gets 1,500% more CBD past cell membranes. Spray the liquid under your tongue, and hold 60 seconds before swallowing.
