I would like to talk about Buteyko Breathing.
I was diagnosed with moderate COPD and told to use an inhaler, I refused the inhaler and tried to look for more information on how I could handle this naturally. In the mean time I did the peroxide inhaler according to Bill and oregano oil when I started coughing and knew that a bacterial infection was coming. Both of these were effective somewhat but my oxygen level kept going down. My husband died during this time and because I have agoraphobia my anxiety kicked in really bad. I really thought this was it.
I ordered an oxygen concentrator and was trying to figure out how to hook it up to my sleep apnea machine that I started trying to find out how to get rid of my excess co2 that everyone online said I have too much of.
Instead of finding what I was looking for, I found a site that said we had too little co2. That definitely got my attention. What I discovered was the Buteyko Breathing method. You will have to look up the site online and read for yourself how to do this. They have people who will help but they charge, so that was out, I'm cheap. But I found enough information online to get started.
The most important thing was keeping your mouth closed at all times. You only open it to talk and eat and yawn. The first time I did this I was really in a panic and especially with COPD but I kept it up. Just a small exercise for you that don't want to go to the internet and look up. Keeping your mouth closed take a small breath in and then a small breath out and then hold your breath for the count of 5, pause and do it all over again for about 10 min to start 3 times a day.
There is more to it but the improvement is apparent in about 24 hours. The nice thing is it is free!!!! You really need to research it on line or go to amazon and get a book on Buteyko Breathing. I started this whole routine in 2019. I have never used my oxygen concentrator. I have no more COPD and I walk one and a half to 2 miles a day. This is not just for COPD but for anxiety asthma and a host of other things. We are all over breathing and building up co2 that should be in our blood but is trapped in our lungs. I hope this has been a help to someone and and maybe will get you to thinking in a different direction. We are on a holistic site because maybe we're not sure if the pharmaceutical, doctors, science has it right!!! Or maybe we have tried it all and to no avail.
Free!!!! Oxygen is FREE!!
The best to you, Yolanda
Mullein tea for asthma and COPD:
On a daily basis I take OACV [organic apple cider vinegar] with a pinch of cayenne pepper and the juice of 1 whole lemon.
In addition to this I recently added 1.5 Ltr bottle of Volvic water with a half teaspoon of borax. The reason I chose Volvic water is because it seems to be the only water with 32mg silica per Ltr (it states it on the bottle). I can't find any other water containing silica.
In addition to this I make 1 Ltr of Mullein tea in my cafeteria, which has a fine filter needed to separate floaters in the tea, which I sweeten with raw honey.
Since adding these recent additions to my daily intake of health remedies I have stopped using Ventolin and DuoResp Spiromax inhalers because I no longer wheeze and cough up daily dollops of phlegm. Also and perhaps more importantly, my BPH problems have noticeably decreased. I no longer need to urgently find a toilet when I feel like a pee and I now sleep all night without getting up to pee several times during the night.
I have purposely waited for a month before coming on here to tell you in case it was a fluke, but I don't think it is because I feel so well and everything works as it should (and I mean everything).
The Mullein tea I buy online and I use 2 tablespoons full (heaped) per litre. I drink a mug of it after my OACV mix and drink the rest during the day. I make the brew in the evening and leave it for use the next morning so it has infused all night.
I use a gym and swimming pool 3 times a week and I am 78 years old this year.
COPD. I have been using plantain (the weed, not the banana type plantain), also known as white man's foot, rats tail, broad leaf & long leaf, among other names, for about 18 months. I pick it, wash it thoroughly, using the whole plant including the roots, dry it & freeze it. I take a small handful, pour boiling water over it, cover & let it stew for at least 24hrs, sometimes longer if I make up a few pints. I then strain it, hold my nose, as it doesn't taste the best & drink about half to 3/4 of a pint a day. It took 3 to 4 weeks before I noticed an improvement. My breathing is so much better and I am no longer "wet" in my lungs. I even forgot to take my inhalers a good few times. I didn't have the flu injection this year. I have not had one chest infection, didn't get the Australian flu or any other flu or cold over the winter, even though everyone else in my home did, usually I am the first to get anything going around. I have not been ill once this winter.
A family member rid his tooth abscess using only plantain.
My Mum has been using it for her COPD symptoms for the past 7/8 months. Not only has her COPD improved, she has said it really helps with her arthritis!
Specialist said I had c, p, o, d, could not stop coughing or get any sleep / lungs were full of dust / was on a puffer and pills. I went on h202, 1 drop in water or juice in morning, 1 more in afternoon and added one drop each day up to 25 drops twice a day / I'm 85 yrs old do not have c, p.o, d. any more.
I mix I ounce of h 202 / food grade 35 % hyd, peroxide with 11 ounces of water /distilled/. Also use q tip put some in each ear some up each nostril. I have not had flu or even a cold in 5 years.
I was diagnosed with copd in 2012. I am 56 and have smoked since I was 16. I now take advair, a rescue inhaler, nebulized albuterol and am on continuous 2L of oxygen 24/7. Its been a long time since I've had a good breath. I discovered this site about 3 or 4 months ago and decided to try the dmso, msm and colloidal silver.
First I put 1/2 teaspoon of dmso mixed with 1/2 teaspoon of distilled water in the nebulizer and just held it in front of my face. This is some strong stuff. I don't think I put the mouthpiece directly in my mouth but I did pull some in my lungs via my mouth. I survived that.
Next I nebulized 1/2 teaspoonful of colloidal silver. This went smooth. About 2 or 3 hours later I started trying to clear my throat. I hacked around for a few minutes and just a small amount of yellow looking junk came up. I then took a dose of advair and I think some of it actually got to my lungs because before I don't think the advair was making it pass the back of my tongue. I did this like 2 days ago. I did Not do any yesterday or today. Today I just did the silver only.
I pulled the oxygen hose off for about 4 or 5 hours. I did get up and went slowly to the bathroom but while getting out of breath a little bit I did not get breathless. Tomorrow I will do the dmso again. I will pull a little more in my lungs. I will do the silver again. same dosages, and I also will put 1 teaspoonful of msm in a bottle of drinking water to drink.
For the last 2 days I have also been taking 1 morning probiotic capsule daily, 2 turmeric capsules daily, 1 vitamin c daily, 2 500mg Coq 10 tablets. This is the best I have felt in at least 3 or 4 years that I remember. It has been almost a year since I've left my home. I have a great husband. I have an even greater God who has led me on this path, because before I started healing myself physically, I made sure I was healed spiritually. I would recommend any spiritual healing before the physical.
I love you all. Take care. Breathe good.
My mom is 85 and has asthma and copd for 20 years now. Both started getting worse the last couple years and I could tell the docs couldn't or wouldn't do much to help her. I discovered in my research on youtube that peppermint tea and organic raw honey when drunk daily will clear mucus from lungs. She started using these two simple remedies 6 months ago & her doc told her after 4 months of drinking this that her lungs were clear of mucus. For the first time in years, she (doc) heard no wheezing or rattling noise.
My mom drinks a cup in the morning and later in the day. Whenever she feels like a cold or something is coming on, she doubles the tea bags and honey for safe measures, and so far, praise God, it seems to help war off intruders.
To Start with, the UK has put a ban on 35% Food Grade H2O2, with a two year prison sentence if you are found in possession.You can only purchase the 35% FGH2O2 with a government license.
On visiting South Africa, I freely bought it and the distilled water to take the dosage as laid down in Bill's book. I managed to get as far as 22 drops in 12 fl.ozs (UK) of distilled water. That was on day 14 of the schedule. I had to quit as I kept throwing up, later I found out why, it is very hard to know when your stomach is completely empty, because at this high dose, the stomach must be completely empty. However not to be put off completely, I reduced the 35% down to 3% with distilled water 11 to 1 total 12, 11 being distilled water and 1 the 3%.
I am using an altrasonic nebulizer ( Beurer IH 40 ). The best thing I ever bought, it is almost silent, so it can be used at night without disturbing your partner. My oxygen transfer reading had dropped from 98 to 95 in less than 6 months, before I started the inhaling treatment. I am pleased to say that my readings have improved back to 98/99. I started the treatment with 10 minutes 3 times a day, for 10 days, then I increased the time to 15 minutes 3 times day, for 10 days, I am now on 15 minutes 4 times a day.
I have informed my doctor and COPD nurse of my actions, they were both astonished when I presented the benefits of FG H2O2.They had no answer to my actions. I told them I had stopped taking my inhalers, I don't need them. I will continue until August 2016, then I will have a comparison check up of January 2016. I have read most of the comments here on this site. I sleep up to 10 hours without any problem, and get up at 6 am twice a week to go fishing, I can still lug my fishing gear around, although I do get out of breathe, however my recovery time is getting better by the week.
I heard an amazing testimony about COPD castor oil pack/compress.
A man with advanced COPD went to the emergency room and was told there was nothing they could do for him and that he didn't have long to live with his condition. He then went to my natural practitioner who instructed him to do castor oil compresses for a few days. He did them over his chest/lungs for four days, 4/5 hours per day. After the fourth day he coughed, hacked up a bunch of black plugs that he said looked like worms. Ewww. Alarmed, he went back to the emergency room. After tests the doctor said you don't have COPD. He asked if he could go hiking. The doc said you can do whatever you want to. I heard him tell this testimony to my natural practitioner and profusely thank her for saving his life. I wanted to share this info with others.
Hi to you all I suffered with copd for eight years, six really bad ones.
However by chance - long story - I took some vitamin b12 and within 48 hours or so my symptoms had disappeared.
The tightness in my chest and the excruciating agony of breathing has gone.
Breathlessness is a symptom of vitamin b12 deficiency, pernicious anemia is a serious deficiency. Obviously I have some way to go with my breath as not being able to breathe for six years does take its toll - I get out if breath still but not breathless. So complete recovery could take a while I should think I am still only recently recovered I am no expert but I don't know if it will help all copd cases as they are many different causes - its worth a try.
As for the dosage well I used cherry flavored methyl b12 and just took four or five a day.
Vit b12 is a water based vitamin and the French firemen are given it before going to a fire to protect their lungs.
Good luck to you all
Thanks for looking.
I was diagnosed with mild COPD about 3 years ago. I refused all inhalers and told the doctor I would treat myself. I started using Bill Munro's protocol for the hydrogen peroxide. I buy the 3% hydrogen peroxide from WalMart or any supermarket. I put the straight peroxide in an nasal spray that has been emptied of its contents and rinsed really good in hot water. (you can also buy empty nasal spray bottles from Amazon.)
I also do the same thing with colloidal silver and lugol's iodine 2% solution. The colloidal silver is put straight into the nasal spray bottle but I put 2 drops of silver into water that I put first in the nasal spray bottle. I now have 3 nasal spray bottles,
1. with 3% peroxide
2. with colloidal silver and
3. with lugol's iodine 2 drops in water.
I use these throughout the day whenever I feel mucous and congestion building up and 1 hour before bed to clear up any mucous before bed. I also use p73 extra strength oregano oil. I put 6 drops in a empty gel capsule or just put 6 drops under the tongue. This acts as a natural antibiotic that clears up any infection or viruses. I use this two weeks on two weeks off or however you feel.
I no longer have any problem getting mucus up can walk over a mile without any breathing problems. I know that the copd is still there but it just dosen't bother me. The last time I went to the doctor he had me cough and listened to my breathing but didn't comment on the copd. The year before he insisted I take the inhalers.
Just had to share with you. It has been at least 3 years I have been doing this and I have not gotten any worse. The best to you all, Yolanda
P.S.. I forgot to tell you I do use them all at the same time. Took a while to do that doesn't seem to hurt. Sometimes I take one then later take another. Just try it.
I am 62 years old and have had asthma since I was 3 years old. For the past 15 years or so I have had multiple bouts of pneumonia and bronchitis. One bout of pneumonia lasted for 5 months and the bronchitis usually lasts for 2 to 3 months. Recently I was diagnosed with COPD, never smoked, never experienced second hand smoke. I have been using albuterol inhalers for 45 years or so. Started inhaled steroids 30 years ago. Was put on nebulizer steroids to use with my usual does of nebulizer albuterol and Advair 500/50.
In researching my options, I found the idea of using DMSO and Colloidal Silver in a nebulizer. I mix 7 cc of Colloidal Silver, 3 cc DMSO, 3 cc distilled water. This mix lasts me for 6 treatments, plus a little. I do three or four treatments a day with 2 cc of my mixed solution. When I started the Silver/DMSO treatments I stopped ALL of my asthma COPD meds. I have used my inhaler once. I have been doing this new regimen for 4 days. The phlegm is slowly coming up. I feel better than I have in months. I have an appt. with my GP next week. I hope he hears better lung sounds. My next apt with my Pulmonologist is next month. I will try to repost as time goes on.
I posted two years ago, when I began inhaling H2O2 for COPD. I had been terribly sick for over 15 years and was suffering for nearly six months of the year with chronic bronchitis and pneumonia.
I started with Bill Munro's inhalation method and I am now using between 3 and 5 ccs of .5% (1/2 %) food grade hydrogen peroxide (diluted with distilled water) daily via nebulizer. I have had only two short episodes of bronchitis in two years (and no other illnesses at all)!
I am not a healthcare practitioner, but have been doing exhausting amounts of research and have found a lot of important info I would like to share.
1. You should always use food-grade H2O2 when possible and it should only be diluted with distilled water. (care should be taken when diluting, it is caustic at anything over 3% and WILL burn you). If food grade is not accessible or you don't trust yourself, use the stabilized type (brown bottle), but know that it has additives that can affect you negatively. I used the stabilized type for about a year with no adverse effects and Bill Munro has been using it forever.
2. The food-grade is more potent than the stabilized even at the same diltuion. The dilution I have used (and recommended to hundreds of people) is:
3% stabilized or 2% food-grade for mist inhalation and for anything topical (ears, cuts, etc.).
1% stabilized or .5% food-grade for nebulizer treatments.
3. Many people would like to take H2O2 internally for almost any ailment. I believe it will cure ANYTHING! However, you should know that it is not as simple as putting a few drops in water. There are many foods and meds that interact with H2O2 and you can get quite sick. In "The One-Minute Cure" by Madison Cavanaugh, there is a great chart with dosages and recommendations for detoxing, etc. You can also read about what foods, medicines, etc. to avoid.
4. Speaking of books on the subject, "Hydrogen Peroxide Medical Miracle" by William Campbell Douglass is also a wealth of info. I have also recently downloaded a free Kindle book "Hydrogen Peroxide Miracle Healers From the Kitchen" by Sharon Daniels. It is a short e-book. It appears that this author has condensed other author's info into a quick read. It doesn't really give specifics on how to use H2O2, but it's great for some very interesting facts.
I hope that this info can be posted for others, so that they can take advantage of this amazing and inexpensive cure for almost any ailment out there.
Be well, Maggie
Spices and COPD, Chronic Bronchitis:
A year ago, I was diagnosed with chronic Bronchitis - COPD, so severe that my ears turned blue from lack of Oxygen. My blood pressure was very high, too. The DOT immediately yanked my Health card for driving truck. When I went to the Dr. my Oxy saturation level was 81. He put me on an inhalor and I had to use a Nebulizer several times a day. Nothing really changed. I could breathe a little better, but was still able to walk only for short distances.
I love to cook, and tried to think of the healthiest people that I know. I started cooking with spices from China, India, and other Asian areas. I use curry powders (in various heat ranges), Turmeric, Cayenne, Garlic, Ginger, Paprika, Mustard, Wasabi, and others. I use one or more of these ingredients in every meal, and most snacks, that I cook.
About two months ago I had a physical, blood work, and EKG in preparation for surgery. My lungs no longer "wheeze" (I do have a bad day once in a while...but not DAILY); my blood pressure was normal; my Oxy sat level is 95 to 97 percent; (both) Cholesterols were at healthy levels, and, except for my COPD, I am as healthy as can be! The best result of eating all that good, spicy-hot, healthy food is that I can walk at least a half a mile without "running out of breath."
I have NEVER posted to any Website but feel that people should be aware of the benefits of spices and herbs. I have now found a local store that sells 1 pound packages of spices, instead of paying $4 to $7 in grocery stores for those little bottles. The savings are phenomenal. This is the best site that I have found that re-enforces my belief in hot foods. Thank you EARTH CLINIC.
