I purchase Apple Cider Vinegar capsules, often from ebay, but also direct from the manufacturer in the USA. I started using them when I was diagnosed with C.O.P.D. lung disease. They changed my life, I could breath again without the need for inhalers or nebulizers, am off the other medications as well. Reduced my cholesterol, and lost weight, normalized my sugar levels, and I no longer suffer with reflux or heartburn. I take 6 capsules a day, and it costs me less than just one of my prescriptions did.
Wow, I too suffer with COPD and I met a lady last week who told me about ACV, I tried the liquid the same day, and immediately started feeling better. I thought it was all in my head, but it does help.
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.
I have had COPD for the past 8 years I have started a treatment of Cayenne pepper with Asparagus, 1 tin of Asparagus and 2 tablespoons of Cayenne Pepper, bring to a boil, then liquidise it and refrigerate.
I take 4 tablespoons in morning and evening.
I also doing the Hydrogen peroxide nebulizer down my throat during the day, and blow balloons before bedtime.
I will keep you posted on results. I have to see the Lung Doc on Dec 15. This should be interesting
Yes to blowing up balloons! I have COPD and started the balloon regiment, it really does help. I posted this on a group page and others have posted positive results. One guy said that he's blowing up big punch balls with no shortness of breath. Easy and cheap to do. Lots of fun if you have a dog and let the balloon go squeeeeeek when you let the air out.
Edgar Cayce's book Handbook for Health says he never knew anyone that did not recover from COPD if they would blow up 7 or 8 balloons a day. Certainly worth a try.
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.
If anyone with COPD has used cellfood products, please let me know what you think of the product. Thank you

re: COPD & Lung Cancer and virgin coconut oil -- I found almost immediate relief from thick mucous taking VCO. I started out with 1 T. with each meal, sometimes in tea or room temp juice. It thins the mucous making it easy to cough up. I also drink 2 quarts of water in addition to the VCO. The water alone did not help. My nasal passages are both open for the first time in years and breathing is much easier. VCO makes the skin lovely.

I just got diagnosed with c.o.p.d. I was born with asrma bronchitis and hay fever; am on cardezam 360 due to atrial fibrilation taking symbicort low dosage. Told most c.o.p.d. patients live 25 years. Trials and research talk most of the time is unreliable, for example t.b is cured with gold collodial yet we are told there is no cure. If the ama or pharmacuetical board cannot get a patent, then they tell you what you're taking is wrong. The 1936 medical journal supported gold collodial use. The ama had the fda refuse to let the collodial continue because no money could be made.
Do you know if colloidal silver has any affect on c.o.p.d.? I also am on warafan for my blood clots I take 400 mg. daily of magnesium , tuna fish and sardines. Does this help at all? I also walk every day until I get tired. Any advice would be well appreciated.

Better But With Side Effects
My father is 66 years old and has been smoking from the age of 18 except for a small period of four years from 2007 when he had his coronary bypass. He was diagnosed with COPD last year and his symptoms have been worsening- Constant wheezing and phlegm, frequent infection of respiratory tube/ food pipe, resistance to antibiotics, recently episodes of fast/heavy breathing, flapping tremors which I'm told is a symptom of Hypoxia. He takes Deriphilin steroids when his attacks get worse; but they have become so frequent( at least once every 3/4 weeks) that he has developed Cushing's ( buffalo hump, moon face, emaciated limbs).
Five days back I started him on Colloidal silver - he nebulizes 2.5 ml every day. The third day he developed Fever, weakness, flu-like symptoms which was a Detox reaction, I guess, from the CS killing the pathogens. His fever is better in the last 2 days, and his phlegm seems to have reduced but he still has constant wheezing. Hope that things will get better. Will keep updating. Hopefully it may help some one. God bless this site and all the people who contribute to it!!!

My husband is 42 and suffers from COPD caused by Sarcoidosis and smoking, he had bacterial pneumonia for 11 months straight in 2010. The doctors gave him every antibiotic imaginable, even Levaquin (which has a black box warning), they use it for treating Anthrax!! Nothing would take it away. I found colloidal silver online that is mixed with Hydro Peroxide and is specifically made for use with a nebulizer. Within three days his pneumoonia was GONE!! We are getting ready to start using the DMSO treatment and I'm hoping with all I have in me that it will help him as well as the silver did alone.

My husband suffers copd, he gets a lot of chest infections and has been told by the Doctor that he has to try something else to try and cure his infections, i was reading about colloidal silver, can he use it in his nebulizer with his asthma treatment and how many times a day, thank you.
I have asthma and bronchiectasis (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). Was diagnosed 8 years ago. I was suffering from monthly (sometimes twice monthly) chest infections, and had to take antibiotics for every outbreak and becoming more and more resistant and sensitive to the drugs. I started using Colloidal Silver in my nebuliser about a year ago now and have not had a chest infection since. As soon as I feel my sputum changing (from clear to yellow) I use the colloidal silver and the infection does not develop any further. Some times I have to do it more than once, but mostly once is enough. I hope this will help anybody out there that is struggling with the same problem. Good luck!!

I was diagnosed with COPD in the summer of 2013 having suffered with constant coughing both day and night for about 6 months prior. I was unable to lie down in bed to sleep and had to sit upright propped-up with pillows so that I could at least get a little relief. Even so I was lucky if I could get more than a couple of hours sleep a night.
Having been issued with a Spiriva powder inhaler and a Ventolin Evohaler, after attending a Pulmonary Rehabilitation Programme at my local hospital and being given advice on how best to manage the condition I had to get on with the rest of my life as best as I could.
Despite taking the prescribed medications as directed they gave me little relief and each day became more of a struggle to combat the illness.
Then at the beginning of December 2015, with my condition rapidly deteriorating, I began to search the Web in earnest to try and find some answers to my problems.
To cut a long story short something steered me in the direction of purchasing a home dehumidifier with a built in charcoal filter and ioniser.
Living in the UK, as I do, we can get very high levels of moisture in our homes due to the excessive amounts of rain that we get.
This can basically fill the lungs with water from the atmosphere and I was coughing up excessive amounts of watery phlegm on an hourly basis.
The humidity level inside your home should be in the range of 40 – 65 (on a scale of 100) and, having purchased a cheap humidity gauge, I found that the levels in my home were reading a massive 85.
So I went online and purchased a dehumidifier which could remove about 10-12 litres of water a day from the air in your home.
It arrived about a week before Christmas and when I set it running it was giving a reading around 85 and, running it for just 12 hours a day, it was removing 2-3 litres of water from the atmosphere on a daily basis and the humidity level reading was gradually getting lower.
After 4 weeks of use the humidity level is now down to between 45 & 50 and the level of water that it is removing is getting less and less everyday.
My home was not showing any signs of having these high levels (such as mould on walls & ceilings, windows running with damp etc.) but I still had very high levels just the same.
My condition has improved in leaps and bounds over those 4 – 5 weeks and I now find that I am no longer coughing day and night, in fact I hardly cough at all now, and I no longer need to use the Ventolin Evohaler.
I am able to sleep at night now and my mental health, (I was getting very depressed and may I also say verging on suicidal?), is also starting to improve as my health gets better.
So the question is did I have or not have COPD? I don't really know, but I do know that my health has started to improve now (although I feel that some damage has been caused to my lungs because of all the years of coughing) and I am looking forward to a healthier life.
The doctors didn't seem to be able to help me – the answer to my problems was the dehumidifier and, although it might not be the answer for everyone, it could possibly be the answer for you too.
So, in conclusion, I offer this advice to those suffering with this dreadful condition.
(1) - Go online and get a humidity gauge.
(2) – Use it throughout the home for a week and see what readings you're getting.
(3) – If you find that you are getting high readings get yourself a dehumidifier.
I CAN'T GUARANTEE IT BUT IT WORKED FOR ME – IT COULD ALSO WORK FOR YOU SURE IT WELL WITH FAITH
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.
