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.

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.

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.

emphysema - I am getting a bit confused about DMSO! I didn't know that you could take it internally. I use a nebuliser with abuterol. Can use use a nebulizer with DMSO mixed with food grade Hydrogen Peroxide? An immediate reply would be greatly appreciated...

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!

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.

I am just wondering if there is anyone of the site that has severe emphysema and has this worked for them? My breathing is really bad but I am not on oxygen yet but getting there!!!

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!
Dear sir/madam. i am trying bill munro's inhalation method at present and i am feeling some improvement. i would like to try taking h2o2 orally along with the inhalation method but i am unsure on the safety of doing this . Ido 3% h2o2 @6 puffs four times a day. my problem is emphysema. i am a 66 yr old male. can you or perhaps bill comment.
Hydrogen peroxide diluted with water and also the inhaling method cured my emphysema; wow what a difference in an hour and half or so... very chronic for about week, could hardly breath.
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!
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.

Hi thanks for your recipe for lung disorders just wanted to check some things, 6 seed pods that is the tops with all the pods and seeds from 6 different plants? Quite long about a foot long Also does it matter what time of the season you pick these? Can you pick them while they are still green and just stopped flowering?
Do you have to wait until they are all dried up on the plant?
Many thanks and God bless!!
I found this website purely by accident by doing a search for emphysema. Three years ago my wife suffered a bad cold which in turn became bronchitis and then pneumonia. She was treated with antibiotics for about a month but her health was never the same. She developed allergies and then the symptoms of asthma. She was put on various steroid medications along with inhalers. Sent from one doctor to another until finally told that she suffering from Emphysema. How could a once healthy runner who rarely caught a cold develop into Emphysema? I didn't buy it and questioned each doctor. Believe me they do not take lightly that you question them. Each time I was told that the symptoms are there and that we will treat the systems. Telling us that nothing else can be done other then medication.There is no cure plain and simple. Here I am searching the internet for any information that can find. I come across Earth Clinic and find this thread with Jack's recipe. This is something I want to explore. I ordered the herbs all in powdered form except for mullein. They didn't have it in powdered so I purchased it in herb form.
Made it as per the instructions. Put all the herbs into a nylon stocking and boiled until about a pint had evaporated. This was my first time making this so I didn't know what to expect. The mixture was a dark reddish brown. There was a large amount of fines in the pot which needed to be filtered. I used a funnel and cheese cloth to filter. The cheese cloth takes out a great deal but some of the fines manage to pass through. As you get to the bottom of the pot the process does get slower since most of the fines are on the bottom. The mixture was still cloudy so I decided to use unbleached coffee filters. At first the flow is quick but begins to slow down as it picks up the fines. Change the filter and continue until complete. When I was finished I had two full pints and one three quarters full. The final color was a dark red brown which was clear. One thing you need to know is when buying cayenne red pepper. There is a heat value that you need to take into consideration. I purchased 30,000IU which is about the lowest heat unit. And that still is quite hot since Tabasco sauce is 5,000IU. I was lucky since I had no idea what the IU meant before I had purchased it. Another thing is that I am debating as to whether I should have purchased in herb form verses powdered. I am still waiting on information or email on some questions that I have from who I had purchased this from. They have two products that can be used for placing the herbs in while boiling. One is called a Muslin herb bag and is washable and reusable. It also comes in several sizes. The other is called Press N brew bags which are similar to tea bags. This also comes in different sizes. Using these would cut down on the amount of fines. At the moment I just started giving the Jack's formula to my wife. I do have some high hopes that she will have some improvements. Hopefully I made everything correctly.
I purchased everything from Monterey Spice.
Last but not least I want to thank Jack for so kind and considerate for posting this recipe.
