Comprehending COPD

COPD071311387383_s

 

COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) is a disease of the lung caused by chronic bronchitis and emphysema.  According to the American Lung Association (http://www.lung.org/lung-disease/copd/ ) COPD is the third leading cause of death in the US.  It can cause serious disability and early death.  Unfortunately, there is no cure for COPD but there are many ways to prevent and treat COPD.

COPD sufferers have difficulty breathing which is caused by a barrier in the lungs and the flow of air is less than it should be.  When this occurs it’s difficult to get rid of carbon dioxide which is the waste gas.  As COPD progress’s, it’s extremely hard to continue an active lifestyle due to shortness of breath.

What initiates COPD?

  • Smoking is the number one cause of COPD.  If you are a smoker stop smoking now!  If you are considering smoking – don’t!  If you are in a smoke environment you are at risk for COPD.  Protect yourself and loved ones by making your home “Smoke Free.”
  • Air pollution and aggravating fumes and dusts, especially work-related can also cause COPD.
  • In rare cases, COPD can be related to emphysema which is formed by an inherited absence of a protective protein in the blood.

Symptoms of COPD

  • Chronic coughing
  • Shortness of breath performing everyday tasks
  • Wheezing
  • Difficulty breathing or unable to take a deep breath
  • Producing large amounts of phlegm or mucus

Detection

If you or a loved one has symptoms of COPD, is a current smoker or a former smoker you should see your doctor right away.  Don’t ignore the symptoms or wait for them to get worse, valuable treatment time could be lost.  Don’t forget:  Early detection is vital to successful treatment.  Most lung diseases can be treated, allowing you to live a longer and improved quality of life!  For more information on COPD – please contact the specialists of Dominion Internal Medicine @ 540.878.5408 or visit www.dominioninternalmedicine.com.

    For the past few years I have had difficulty working out in yard, then in 2015 it got harder and harder to breathe. After many tests, it was a CT scan that showed COPD, emphysema and scarring in my lungs. I quit smoking 8 years ago but the damage has been done. I got to a point I couldn’t catch my breath and was coughing so hard I thought the top of my head would blow off, nothing was really working to help my condition. Finally i started on COPD herbal formula i purchased from NewLife Herbal Clinic, i read alot of positive reviews from other patients who used the COPD herbal treatment. I used the herbal remedy for 7 weeks, its effects on COPD is amazing, all my symptoms gradually faded away, i breath very more freely now! (Visit www . newlifeherbalclinic. com ) I recommend this COPD herbal formula for all COPD/Emphysema sufferers

    so i decided to come online to see if there will be better alternative,during my research i saw a lady post about doctor Abumere who has power over deadly diaereses,so i decided to contact him because i really do not care about what my husband was talking in all i want for him is for him to get well for me because he was all i have,my husband took the remedies as he told us and few weeks later my husband stop to notice that symptoms of his disease are begging to leave him so he went back to his Dr and he was told he no longer has those diseases.
    My husband is totally free of COPD and cancer if not for doctor abumere who help us rid this problem there is a possibility that my husband wouldn’t be alive today.

    I was not really having a problem breathing at first. My throat was burning; I thought I had strep throat. I had pain in my neck, and there was swelling around my collar bone. The first doctor I went to said he did not know why there was swelling. He gave me antibiotics and told me that if the swelling was not better to come back in two weeks. I went back in two weeks and he said he did not know what was wrong. Since I do not have insurance, I went to a hospital emergency room, and they said I have COPD.The disease does not improve. My “good days” are far and few these days. My dad and his dad died from this. I am only writing this to inform others that nothing was really working to help my condition.I started on COPD herbal formula i ordered from Health Herbal Clinic,i read reviews from other previous patients who used the herbal formula, my symptoms totally declined over a 5 weeks use of the COPD natural herbal formula. i am now doing very well, my lungs are totally repaired!!

    I have had emphysema for about five years. I was on oxygen during the day but not at night. I could go about two hours without the oxygen, and then I need it. I had a converter in the house and oxygen tanks for when I go shopping, etc. I am 64 years old and in relatively good health. The doctor said it was caused by a combination of smoking, dust here in Vegas, and 30 years of smog in California. I believed I will always need the oxygen to breathe. I quit smoking 15 years ago. But the damage has been done. January 2017 my pulmonologist and I decided to go with natural treatment and was introduced to Green House Herbal Clinic natural organic Emphysema Herbal formula, i had a total decline of symptoms with this Emphysema Herbal formula treatment. Visit Green House Herbal Clinic official web-site w w w .

    I am 59 now. I was diagnosed with COPD in March of 2013. I had been a heavy smoker, got a cold I couldn’t get rid of, ended up in the hospital, on a ventilator. I should have known it was coming, but like most smokers, thought it would never happen to me. I don’t smoke now and never will again, but, I still want to. My life has changed drastically. I had to stop working, sold my home (couldn’t afford it without a salary),the COPD disease has kept down since diagnosed if not for the herbal formula of Total cure herbal foundation i would have been in hospital with the use oxygen managing my condition,total cure herbal foundation finally get rid of my disease with their natural herbal products in just 14 weeks of usage which i have been on other medication for ages but am really glad now that my lungs has return to it normal position.

  10. Well written. I truly treasure this kind of information. This could save a lots of lives. Symptoms should not be ignore, early detection can prevent COPD. Smoking is the number cause of COPD, why many cannot quit?

    I had been hospitalized for 3 years in a row all in the same month march, for shortness of breath. They thought it was asthma. The last time which was this year, they hospitalized me for a week. Which they ran lots of test and determined I have COPD. The symptoms I had were shortness of breath, tired, and coughing. Oxygen doesn’t seem to help, medication wasn’t helping too (Spiriva and Advair plus nose sprays).although my doctor was wanted me to use it, to reduce symptoms and slow down progression but I could not tolerate them for long due to severe side effects. I decided to adopt a more natural approach and started on COPD Herbal formula from Green House Herbal Clinic, the COPD natural formula immensely helped my condition, i had a total recovery from COPD with this natural herbal formula treatment.

    For the past few years I have had difficulty working out in yard and carried a lawn chair with me. Then a couple of months ago it got harder and harder to breathe. After many tests it was a CT scan that showed COPD, emphysema and scarring in my lungs. I quit smoking 12 years and 6 months ago. But they told me the damage has been done. I got to the point I couldn’t catch my breath and was coughing so hard I thought the top of my head would blow off. The day after I had the scan I was on oxygen the next night and am on it 24/7. I can take it off to shower and take a few minutes break now and then. Even though I was tethered to the machine or tank I carry when I’m out, I am very thankful for total cure herbal foundation who I we bought the COPD Emphysema from, the COPD herbal treatment cured me totally and reversed all symptoms, our family DR provided us their website where to order the herbal products from because the COPD Herbal formula is 100% Natural organic herbs and MCC approved that was why we had to trusted and give a try on it,I have an understanding family and even though it is entirely my fault they want me to live as long as I can.

    I have Mar-fans Syndrome which can cause early emphysema. I quit smoking 30 yrs ago but the damage was already done. I feel I definitely get treated differently because of the diagnosis of COPD, and have to fight to stay above the depression I feel because I know I helped short-end my life. I was living with a puffer every so often and then had heart surgery and became much worse as far as breathing goes.
