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
I've been reading EC for a couple of months. Love this site. I have COPD. Supposedly in final stage. But, I'm pretty stubborn. Was already doing common sense things (diet, vitamins, etc.) when I found EC. Now I've added Hydrogen Peroxide (HP aka H2O2) and Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) with Baking Soda (BS). Am doing much better with these additions. Here's my big question: Does anyone else have issues with humidity and air pressure? I can have a pretty good day, then when the sun goes down and the humidity rises, my breathing becomes labored. Same when a rain or snow storm is coming. My breathing is acting like a barometer. All ideas welcome! Just like all of you out there in EC Land, I thank God several times a day for this site.

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 would like to tell you about Buteyko breathing method that has virtually eliminated my COPD. I am 82 and was diagnosed over 7 years ago with this. I refused all inhalers and tried other methods for my copd, like inhaling peroxide which helped some but not nearly enough.
I bought a very expensive oxygen concentrator for breathing but while I was trying to figure out how to use it I started searching the internet for help. I came across this Buteyko breathing site and started using all the information I could find on there. It has been two years since I have been doing this and I have never used the oxygen machine. It is in the back of my closet and my kids will have to do something with it. I very rarely have congestion have never been hospitalized and walk a 1mile or more a day. This will eliminate asthma, constipation and a hundred other things. The Best
Buteyko Breathing Method
I have copd for about 7 years diagnosed. I have never taken any inhalers or medication for it. I only took Bill Monroe's hydrogen peroxide by spraying in throat, but things were not getting better even though Bill peroxide helped. I started experiencing high anxiety and shortness of breath, I even went so far as to buy a very expensive oxygen concentrator. I read how my co2 was the problem and causing my shortness of breath. So I went to Google and tried to find out how to reduce my co2, Boy did I get a shock when I found out that co2 is a good thing and not bad!!! What? The problem was the co2 was being trapped in the lungs and not able to get into the blood where it was needed. I was told we are all overbreathing or hyperventilating. The doctor who found all of this out and was the discover was Doctor Buteyko. If you look up Buteyko breathing and do a search you will find all the information you need. By the way, I have never used my $2,500 dollar oxygen machine. My bronchitis is gone I am walking 1 mile with very little discomfort I am sleeping better at night and anxiety is at a minimal.
For those of you who won't look this up I will give you a very simple exercise to do at least 2 time a day or whenever you think of it. The more you do the better you feel. Keep your mouth closed at all times!!! The feel of smothering with leave, sneeze through your nose and cough through your nose. You can yawn through your mouth. Take a small breath in and a small breath out and then hold for 5 SECONDS.
The best to you all, Yolanda
Buteyko Breathing Method
I have copd and a while back I talked about what I was doing for it. One was Bill Munro's hydrogen peroxide inhalation method since then I have come about a new revelation and have to share it. It is the Buteyko method of breathing.
I know there is a lot of information out there on breathing but this is definitely different. I have refused all inhalers since I was diagnosed about 5 years ago but in the last year I have gotten really bad. I started having a hard time breathing and then I started having extreme anxiety issues and after doing research I found that the build of co2 was a factor. I then tried to find out how to get rid of co2 in the body. Much to my surprise I found out from the Buteyko site that we actually had too much oxygen and it couldn't be utilized because it couldn't mingle with the co2 and enter the bloodstream! It talked about a simple breathing exercise that would actually cure asthma and help with copd. It seems like the biggest problem we have is overbreathing. My oxygen level was always around 93 then sometimes would drop to 90. I ordered a $2,300 dollar oxygen concentrator with a prescription I got from the doctor. I have never used it and that has been 3 months ago.
The biggest but not the most important thing about Buteyko breathing is just shutting your mouth all the time even when coughing and sneezing. I have sleep apnea and I take my mouth shut at night and put on my full face mask. I am now walking a good mile a day without shortness of breath and my oxygen level is alway at 94. The nice thing is it's free. All I bought was a book on Amazon I won't give you the name because I don't want you to think I'm selling books.
Look up Buteyko breathing on line there is enough free stuff to change your breathing. The Best
If anyone with COPD has used cellfood products, please let me know what you think of the product. Thank you

For those who are not having success with COPD remedies:
Looks like you need to back up and try preventing any possible causes to your copd like bad indoor air. Additional air purification will help. I use a neg ion/ozone unit purchased from EBay in addition to a Honeywell HEPA Type.
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.
