Natural Emphysema Treatment

Last Modified on Nov 02, 2014

What Is Emphysema?

Emphysema is a lung disease caused by the death of tissues that hold together the shape and function of the lungs. This tissue death causes a collapse of the airways and destruction of tissue around the alveoli sacs that are crucial for getting oxygen into the blood, leading to hypoxemia (decreased oxygen partial pressure in the blood). Emphysema, along with chronic bronchitis, is part of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (or COPD), which sees the degeneration of the lung pathways over time. The symptoms of emphysema are shortness of breath, hyperventilation, and an expanded or barrel chest.

The leading cause of emphysema is smoking tobacco over a period of years, with the smoker developing emphysema gradually. For that reason, 94% of emphysema diagnosis among Americans occurs over the age of 45. Emphysema can also occur as a natural part of aging, and is commonly found in people over the age of 85; second-hand smoke can also increase risk.

[YEA]  My husband has suffered from Emphysema for quite awhile now and has slowly been getting a lot worse with his breathing. He has been on several medications, plus inhalers and none of them seem to be helping much. He is a workaholic and was getting extremely frustrated at the fact that he was becoming unable to go to work several days at a time, and completely out of breath walking a very short distance, in fact 3 days ago, was seriously thinking of going into hospital again for some help. , but stayed in bed.

However, in the meantime, I found this website, read about the cayenne and told him about it. I didn't think for a minute that he would try it, but he did. To his and my surprise, he started to improve. His strength has been improving each day and we are both amazed at how much energy he has. In fact he is back off to work tomorrow - just 3 days after starting this remedy.

Taking the cayenne 3 times a day (1/2 teaspoon in warm water) has worked absolute wonders.

Thanks for your feedback on cayenne, and its great to hear that your hubby is improving. If you add a couple of cloves of raw garlic a day into the mix, he will start to cough up the nasty stuff in his lungs.

[BETTER BUT WITH SIDE EFFECTS]   Cayenne 'tea' - I have COPD and just tried 1/2 a teaspoon of Cayenne powder in warm water and I must say that there was a very prompt and marked improvement in my breathing - but I really dont think I can drink this regularly as it caused an equal impact on my stomach and throat............ Does anyone know if Cayenne extract capsules are also beneficial - also info about the strength to aim for and whether they are gentler on the metabolism ???

I use cayenne as well. It does have a back bite. The irritated tissue gives the 'burn' after drinking the powder in warm water. I bought the pills thinking 'by-pass' that. Well, just got the burn lower in the gut. You want the 'help' focused near your lungs, so the warm in water gets very fast absorbtion. I added extra fermented foods, and lowered the amount I was doing til I found a balance point. If it is 'burning' it is trying to kill or heal an area that isn't right. hope this helps.

To Greg from Bristol, Uk: Although you may experience some benefits from using cayenne in the powdered form, it is much more effective if you use the tincture. Start with a drop in some water or tea 3 times per day and increase the dose by a drop or so each day until you are using a half dropper full(depending on the strength of the cayenne in the tincture). As you noted there is a downside to the powdered form with stomach distress and the effectiveness is very low with a very long term use to gain noticeable benefits. Using the tincture should produce measureable improvements in blood circulation within a few weeks. Jay

I use the powdered form with absolutely no stomach burning or discomfort of any kind. Sometimes I put it in coffee with organic honey and cream. I am a believer that Protein and Fat are the two food groups that will also allow the best healing for any problem.

[YEA]  I have been reading your readers' emails and I wanted to make some comments about Cayenne Pepper. Cayenne is one of my favorite herbs for myself and my clients. I had prostate cancer 18 years ago and I cured it naturally using herbs, cleansing and diet only. For the cancer I used the John Ray Christopher method of cayenne tea with a teaspoon of cayenne pepper in warm water 3 times daily. Today I still use one or more teaspoons daily in my food at every meal. Just recently I received a call from a Doctor of Chinese medicine who was throwing up blood from ulcers. As I alway do I suggested cayenne capsules using 100,000 heat units plus. He could not believe that this would work but he took my advice and within a few days his problem was over. Of course I also gave him some advice on changing diet and lifestyle. In my 18 years as a naturopathic healer I have used cayenne many times for bleeding ulcers. Cayenne also works great for emphysema sufferers, I have seen patients get off oxygen bottles and out of wheelchairs. But the person with the disease must go beyond the herb for the disease and look at the way they eat and their lifestyle. If they do not change their life the disease will appear somewhere else in another form.

How long did the cayenne user take his doses before his prostate numbers were down? I am currently a prostate cancer sufferer, and I have been using essiac tea along with baking soda/maple syrup with what appears to be some results (a 2 point drop in my psa over a six month period). Also just started with h2o2 inhaler.

Check out all the information about D3 and prostate. My husbands urologist was amazed by this low psa number. This was only 3 months between psa readings. Hope this helps and good luck to you. Denise

[YEA]  Lung Congestion

After recovering from pneumonia, I continued to have chronic lung congestion. Coincidentally, my son in Texas mentioned a salsa recipe he'd made and suggested I give it a try. He insisted I use fresh cilantro for superior taste. Well, within 5 minutes of making and sampling the salsa, I coughed up an enormous amount of thick phlegm and breathed easier for the rest of the night. By morning, some sleep congestion returned. I made eggs, and since I had fresh cilantro left over from the salsa, I put it on the eggs. Once again, the congestion cleared, with lots of phlegm purged. All within 5-10 minutes of eating the cilantro.

Thinking maybe I had imagined the results, I went a week without trying the cilantro again. The congestion came back. I ate cilantro again, and the phlegm cleared again. I've repeated that test many times since then, and each time cilantro has proven to be my hero. My aunt, who has emphysema (COPD), tried it and got similar good results.
My lung doctor, originally from India, swears by cilantro (and coriander, which includes the whole plant, not just the leaves). The last time I went for a checkup, he declared that my lungs were completely clear and told me to keep eating cilantro.

So now I cook with cilantro several times a week, no matter what. And whenever I travel, I take a small bottle of dried cilantro to sprinkle on my food.

Cilantro (Coriander) along with lemon juice removes heavy metal poisoning as well. Just got that from another site with some interesting stuff... Another one was for getting rid of mites by immersing the hair in olive oil for an hour then washing it out and repeating in five days. It suffocates the mites

I only use DMSO on the "outside of my skin" in cases where I want a specific med to go right to the internal spot I need it to be. For example, say its joint pain med or cream, I apply the cream to the spot on my skin above the spot where the pain is, THEN ADD THE DMSO ON TOP OF IT. This is like using a hypo to inject the painkiller directly and quickly into the pain area. This how DMSO WORKS!

Hi all, I have just found this site and I find it very interesting. A couple of days ago the doctor told me I had emphysema, WHAT! As I got back up off the floor! I am only 54 go running regularly and a non smoker, although I did smoke in my teens and have sucked in a bit of second hand smoke over the years. The doctor sent me away with a script for symbicourt and said "suck on that for two weeks then come back and see me" like hello I have a hundred million questions! I guess he didn't have the time! Please excuse my ignorance but what is everybody talking about on here regarding emphysema? Is everybody taking some of the items mentioned to remove phlem or what? The symbicourt seems to make it worse or is that my ANXIETY? Any response very much appreciated as my world has changed!

To Sirlaughalot: This doesn't sound right to me. If you can, get a second opinion from a different doctor. You may have emphysema, but it doesn't sound like the doctor took any time to discuss why he made his diagnosis, which he really should have done. Next time, go to the doctor with your questions and symptoms written out. This way if you're nervous or there's a lot to discuss you won't forget to ask or describe something important. Don't leave until you've gone over the sheet with the doctor.

Lots of things can cause lung congestion; emphysema and COPD aren't the same thing although remedies can help both since they generally deal with de-clogging lungs (not a technical term :). I would suggest researching emphysema and COPD and even asthma on reputable websites and also through the library or a bookstore. The more you learn the more you'll be able to help yourself.

Bronchodilators often have drugs which can speed up heartbeat as they dilate your lungs for more air to enter. This may well be what's freaking you out. If you're breathing well enough without it, stip taking the Symbicourt until you get a definitive diagnosis.

If you DO have emphysema, ask about your options, and then look into alternative ones as well and see what combo might work for you. It'll be an ongoing process as you reclaim your health.

Hope you get a clearer diagnosis. Emphysema isn't the end of the road (it may not even be the right diagnosis! ), and it sounds like you're interested in exploring new paths anyway. Happy healing! :)

Hydrogen peroxide for COPD, emphysema: Are there any people currently using Hydrogen Peroxide for COPD? I have a sense of mucous, more like a frog in my throat and inflammation, swelling it feels like in my lungs.

There is very little on the internet about H202, yet quite a lot about Turmeric or curcumin which can also be used, however it causes stomach acid for me.

If it is so good, and safe, how come there is not more about it.

Jan, 35% food grade H2O2 is helping increase my blood oxygen levels from the usual 93 to 96% by using 8 ounces of it in a tub of warm (not hot) water, harmless, absorbing through the skin for 20 minutes. Vaporizing overnight with 1 oz 35% food grade H2O2 to 1 gallon distilled water in a Cool Mister is something I also want to try when the weather is cooler and not humid. Suzannah

Ruby, my breathing problems are not as severe as some others, however, I tried to use the hydrogen peroxide inhalation method, but I was forced to quit after just two days, due to increased use of my rescue inhaler.. each case is different.. And it seemed in mine that the phlegm got heavier in my lungs. It is worth a try, and I plan on doing it again when I'm sure no other issues w/my health may be causing an unfavorable outcome. I wish you the best.. God bless. also; Thanks to EC et al for your caring.

[YEA]   Hi Ruby!

Jerome here - I too have emphysema and have been reading this forum for about 3 years. I have tried nearly everything people have posted here that worked for them. Most of it did not work for me. I think I had a hard core case. I smoked for 17 years and had pnemonia 4 times in 7 years and ended up with a lot of scar tissue. I quit smoking 2 years ago. I used to smoke a pack every 4 days.

What does work for me is Nebulizing H2O in 3% H2O2 and a really good product called Oralmat. These products I have been using for only 2 weeks and I am really amazed at how much it is helping me. I use my Pro Air half of what I did before I started these 2 products. I am breathing easier and my breathing capacity is increasing. I used to wake up congested with thick mucus and now its been 2 days and no morning mucus!

I have had Emphysema for about 3 years and it was getting worse no matter what I did. I don't smoke and the thick mucus would build up and it would take over an hour in the morning for me to be able to do much. Now, I get the most done in the morning!!

Also, I have found that prayer and affirmations have really helped.

Good luck and I will keep everyone here posted on my progress.

My short term goal is to get off prescription breathing medications!

As we all know this is a work in progress and I feel every day I am progressing bit by bit.

After nebulizing the first time with H2O2 and H2orega I felt a little heaviness in my lungs. The next time I mixed the H2orega with bottled spring water and I felt no heaviness and my breathing seemed to deepen. So, I stopped using H2O2 and only use water.

Here's to progress!!

[YEA]  food grade H202 (Hydrogen peroxide Totally helped (took away) my breathing problem, I used a product called OXY BODY - As quoted by: https://www.megasecurestores.com/drwallachsminerals.com/cgi-bin/miva?/Merchant2/merchant.mv Screen=PROD&Store_Code=DWCM&Product_Code=13211 Dr. Wallach formulated Oxy Body as an immune system booster to help aid and enhance the body's immune response during times of stress and exposure to infection and disease. It consists of an aloe vera base with 25 drops of food grade H202 (Hydrogen peroxide) per fluid ounce of product. Oxy Body also boasts a number of herbs found to be of benefit to the immune system. One drinks it on an empty stomach. Once ingested the H2O2 breaks down into H2O, water, and oxygen. Hemoglobin in the blood in the walls of the stomach grabs on to the oxygen molecule and then delivers it to needy cells and tissue around the body. Pathogens thrive in an anaerobic environment. In an oxygen rich environment it is difficult for them to reproduce. Thus it is thought that by keeping the system fully oxygenated one can keep infection and disease at bay. Also the product works for allergy sufferers, smokers, folks with emphysema, etc. to help oxygenate the systemhydrogen peroxide in itmade by Dr. Joel Wallach, http://www.majesticearth-minerals.com/default.php, http://www.wallachonline.com http://www.deaddoctors.com/html/nobel.htm This product really helped me, I used to not be able to walk 5 feet without being totally out of breath, I have not even had to use my inhaler for several years, I keep it on hand just in case I ever need it. However , but once I had a allergic reaction to the antibiotic Levaquin and then developed acid reflux, and my throat started suctioning shut when I swallowed, It seemed to aggravate my throat, don't know why, unless it is because it is a little fizzy, so I have not been able to use the food grade H202 (Hydrogen peroxide, Has anyone had this problem, any suggestions??

[YEA]   I have some wonderful news. I recently bought a bulk supply of 35% fg for my dad, who has emphysema; he is 77 and was a heavy smoker for many years. He was to the point where he would take a few steps and just had absolutely no wind left. Anyhoo, he now uses a nasal pump bottle filled w/ a 3% solution. He does about 4-6 pumps, 2-3 times a day (for the past couple weeks). I went to his house this past weekend and he pulled me off to the side and told me "Hey, I want to tell you that the peroxide really seems to be working. I can work around the yard and don't get winded at all anymore, when I stop it is because of my hip" (He has a reconstructed hip. So there is some solid evidence that peroxide really works. After only 2 weeks he has gone from being able to walk only 50-100 feet at a time to not getting winded anymore. Some of this will be attributed to the fact that he gets more excercise now, which will accelerate the healing effect. This site is truly a blessing from God Cheers!

[BETTER BUT NOT CURED]  My Mom, who is 67, is an ex-smoker. Although she quit back in 1983, she was diagnosed with emphysema in 2013. She has hardly any trust in the medical establishment (long story, but I can't say as I blame her much! ), and so the only reason she went to the doctor last year was because she got a letter to report for jury duty and had to have a doctor's letter saying she was physically unable to serve. So to a clinic she went. The physician asst. was alarmed when he took her oxygen level and wanted her to go to the ER. Mom was very resistant to the idea but because I was so upset, she agreed to go the next day for my sake. They took a lung x-ray and gave her a breathing treatment and told her she had emphysema. She was given a referral to a lung doctor and also a prescription for an inhaler. truth be told, Mom has never actually needed the inhaler, but has kept it around "just in case". Needless to say, she never did go to a lung doctor. So anyway, for the past 4 years I have watched her breathing get worse and listened sadly as she had long violent coughing spells multiple times everyday. Her face looked like someone had been punching her around because of all the dark spots caused by her severe coughing. Through the years, I have tried her on various natural remedies. Nebulizing hydrogen peroxide made her actually feel worse and she couldn't even do the nasal bottle spray method like Bill Munroe demonstrated either, although she really tried. So it goes that I had come to the point where I had just decided that I was at a point where there was nothing else I could do...until very recently. I read where a lady said she did the dmso by nebulizing it and took msm orally. Well, I knew that Mom wasn't going to try nebulizing anything again, but what did we have to lose by trying the MSM?

Some have said that you should only take it as a powder. Well, my stubborn as a mule Mom would never drink it if it tasted bad (it does) so I found out that you can buy it in capsule form, so I did.

She's been taking just one of the 1000mg capsules two times a day for about three weeks now. We have been nothing but AMAZED! Within a few days her coughing was less severe and her breathing was better. The bruised-looking places on her face started fading. The color has been coming back to her face too!

I just want everyone to know that even if you can't take the powder form of MSM , do not assume that you will not get any benefit from it. I am also not saying that my Mom is cured, but I AM saying (and these are HER words actually! ) that she is doing 85% better than she was before! All because of 2000mg of MSM a day.

Oh. One more thing...they give MSM to racehorses. Horses get emphysema and we all know that horses do not smoke!

Thanks for the good news report as it will help others in the same condition.

If I may add, The MSM is probably lubricating the lungs in the same way it does painful joints. If this is the case, it may benefit your mom to try a joint formula (widely available) that contains MSM, Glucosamine, and Chondroitin, as these nutrients will also improve lung function.

Also, you may try a very good traditional herbal lung formula with hundreds or several thousand yrs development from China. Search "Chinese lung formula" for more info.

Hi, MSM powder has been shown to have a profound effect on Emphysema, Bronchitis, Asthma and other lung complaints. As MSM is sulfur based it is well absorbed by the body. In the case of Emphysema being a chronic condition it is advisable to take large doses to detox first. 6 teaspoons of powder to 3litres (5 pints) of water, drink it throughout the day. The effect should noticeable after 3 days. MSM is classified as a food not a drug so anything that the body does not use will be excreted. MSM must be taken with vitamin C, your body will tell you what level of VitC you need, like MSM it will excrete the excess. In Australia and New Zealand we buy MSM with VitC already added. I don't know about other countries. I have used this and nebulised with Baking Soda and Magnesium Chloride for COPD and the results have been unbelievable. From not being able to walk as far as the toilet I now walk everywhere. Good luck - Marlane Ellis

Mom has started the cayenne and is trying Mullein Leaf tincture and Lobelia tincture with Hyssop tea bags since we could not find the seed pods. After she tries it awhile we will update with her results.
