COPD/Congestive Lung Disease

NATURAL TREATMENTS FOR COPD

There are many things you can do if you're
diagnosed with COPD:

1.  Quit smoking. According to the American Lung Association, 90% of the cases of COPD are due to smoking, although second hand smoke from a family member or friend adds to the problem.

2.  Be physically active. According to the Mayo Clinic, exercise can strength your respiratory (breathing/lung) ability. Try walking, golfing, dancing, gardening, even shopping, but exercise every day.

3. Eat healthy and maintain a weight appropriate for your height. Every pound over weight you are, the more your heart and lungs have to work. Aim to weigh what you weighed in high school. Limit your intake of salt, sugar, meat, and grains, and eat smaller meals more frequently. Don't eat after dinner. Eat whole foods, not processed (canned or baked) foods, junk foods, cookies, chips, French fries, burgers, sodas, ice cream, etc. Eat as many organic foods as you can; nonorganic foods have substances due to pesticides that make you gain weight.

Don't eat just because you're bored, stressed, nervous, depressed or whatever. Ask yourself, do I need this to be healthy? If the answer is no, don't eat. Instead, take a walk with a friend or your spouse or drink a glass of water, or do some tapping (see below) or deep breathing until you feel better.

4. Learn to breathe from your diaphragm, not in your upper chest. Lie down  on the bed on your back. Place your hand on your abdomen. Practice breathing so your abdomen pushes your hand up. take your time and relax into the bed. Practice breathing this way at least 15 minutes a day and remind yourself to breathe from your abdomen.

     
 5.  Drink lots of fluid, especially 8-10 glasses of filtered or distilled water, and use a humidifier to keep your lungs clear of mucus.

6. Take 60 mg twice a day of the softgel form of coq10 with a meal that contains some fat.

7. Take the nontoxic Chinese medicinal mushroom, cordyceps, which may slow the progression of COPD.

8. Daily, eat at least 5 cups of any combination of steamed carrots, sweet potato,yellow squash and leafy green vegetables.

9. Every day, sing with the radio. This will increase your lung capacity, especially if you hold the notes at the end of each line. Your singing voice will improve, too.

10. Rub warm mustard oil over your chest and upper back or pour a good grade castor oil onto a piece of cotton or flannel that's been dipped in hot water, cover chest with the cotton or flannel for at least 15 minutes 1-2 times a day. 

11. Obtain sufficient touch/massage; get a massage or exchange body or foot massages with a significant other. Hug each other at least 20 times a day; more if you can.

12. For breathlessness: Chew a piece or two of ginger.

13 If you're stressed, depressed, nervous or feeling bad, do some tapping. Choose a phrase that will help you feel better, e.g., even though I'm afraid (depressed, nervous, sad, ashamed, confused, overweight, or whatever you're feeling), I still deeply love and respect myself. (Be sure to say the last part of your phrase in a loud and determined fashion)

Rate yourself from 1-10 on how strong the feeling is.

Start tapping and saying your sentence; go through these acupuncture points with all fingers, two fingers, or fist with sufficient pressure to make a drumming sound, but not to hurt you:

*top of your head
*bony point on outside of eyebrows,
*under eyes,
*each side of nostrils, 
*indentation under lips
*middle of collarbone
*underarm, a couple of inches below armpit
*inside of wrist on the line that goes across
*side of hand by little finger

Take a reading now about how strong your emotion is. It often goes down by 2 points for each time your repeat tapping these points while saying your phrase until you get to zero.

For more information, see the tapping reference LINKS below.
