Sorry to hear about your father, but there is hope.

In your country grows a plant called: Rooibos. Its Latin name is: Xaspalathus Linearis. People call it Rooibos Tea.

If I where him I would be drinking this tea all day long.

There is also the Great Healer Jesus. Your father has a long time pattern of good health within him. Years of feeling good, breathing good and being happy. That is much more powerful than this illness. When you think of him or see him - See him as you remember him when he was vibrant and well.

You can help. When you call upon God who created your father to heal him and make his lungs new - And thank Him for healing and restoring your fathers health - God will respond.

What we are the most thankful for is what God gives us more abundantly!

Call on Dr. Jesus our creator and healer. After all, He created us and He certanly knows how to fix us!

Go with God and in good health.

I have a lot of mucus in my throat with emphysema. I had periods where I would "lose my voice". I now gargle with salt water several times a day, whenever I feel phlemy, and it discharges the mucus from my throat. Much safer than drugs.

I don't know how much it would help but read the site by Dr. Batmanghelidj to learn how to drink water and eat salt to thin mucus and keep your body from producing histamine that causes symptoms of auto immune issues.

For Emphysema:

  • SSKI (Super Saturated Potassium Iodide). You can buy SSKI tablets or make your own liquid SSKI. (Just Google: "make sski" and click on Tony on YouTube.) Start with 3 drops SSKI 3 X a day. Gradually work up the dose. Some people take 10 or more drops at a time, but do your own research for that. Take Iodine with or after food.
  • Try a salt push for any headache and some potassium for any heart palpitations. (I never got either.)
  • Take selenomethionine - 1000mcg. Magnesium, Beta Carotene, B vitamins, NAC, Omega 3, and high dose Vitamin C when on iodine protocol. (I make my own liposomal C. Just make sure you use Sunflower Lecithin--not Soy)

Separate doses of C and Iodine by about 2 hours or they'll cancel each other out.

I think Someon should look into coconut oil for Emphysema. I HAVE HEARD GOOD REPORTS ABOUT IT, BUT WAS MOST SURPRISED TO READ THAT Ted didn't give it a mention.

Alveoli are made of fat tissue and some naturopaths tell patients to only eat coconut oil and butter and no other oils so that the tissue has a chance to heal - or regenerate if that is possible. we do not have conclusive scientific data showing that alveoli can regenerate - but if it is possible, coconut oil would be a necessary component. So good idea to eat it at least in small amounts daily.

This is what I am doing to treat my emphysema: I am trying an inside/outside Vitamin A cure. I have significantly changed my diet to include Vitamin A foods. These foods include cantaloupe, dried apricots, steamed spinach, sweet potatoes, dried plums, red bell peppers, salsa, and romaine lettuce. Other Vitamin A foods are liver, the fish oils, cayenne pepper, tomatoes, kale, mangos, papaya, broccoli, and dried herbs. This is the inside part of my treatment.

The outside part is something I started about 5 weeks ago. I take spinach leaves and dry them out over three or four days. (I'm using the heat from my TV to slowly dry them out. I don't trust microwaving or conventional ovens, because I've read that vitamins begin to breakdown at 225 degrees.) I take the dried spinach leaves and crumble them into a dope vaporizer bowl heated to 225-230 degrees and inhale and hold my breath like smoking dope. The first time I tried this I was totally surprised that I didn't taste anything and that there was no irritation or coughing afterwards. I smoke just 2 bowls of spinach a day.

These are the results so far: It took about a week before I started noticing any results after I started vaporizing the spinach. The first result that I really noticed was that I stopped having to take a nap after my token daily walk. I retired in 2012 at age 62 because I couldn't keep up at work. I haven't had to use oxygen but I didn't have any energy. For my heart, my doctor wanted me to exercise (walking was all I could do and I didn't have energy for that after working) for an hour a day. Before starting on my "cure" I walked from 45 to 60 minutes a day about 5 times a week. And always afterward, I'd have to take a nap or fall asleep on the couch for one or two hours. So when I stopped nodding out after my walk, I really noticed it. Then I started noticing other changes. I stopped having cold feet. I woke up in the morning with more energy. During my walks I had more energy. I started striding instead of strolling. Because of the striding I was walking farther, and then I was walking longer. At first, at least for an hour and that became an hour and fifteen minutes. My excitement has just grown and I am now up to two hours daily of hard striding going aprox. 6-7 miles at a time, six days a week.

The logic behind what I'm doing: I had been looking online for emphysema research for treatment and cures. One thing I found was a report of an experiment with mice in 1998 where artificial emphysema was reversed with retinoic acid. Retinoic acid is a metabolized form of Vitamin A. Retinol is used in skin creams to rejuvenate skin cells. UCLA did a study in the early 2000's with humans but they didn't have any positive results. But I did find a note that suggested that if they had increased the dosage of retinoic acid …. Also, in an N.I.H./pub.med web site, I read about a German doctor who had developed an aerosol form a Vitamin A to treat kids in the Congo who were deficient in A. (I even found his US patent application.)

So, as I understand it, emphysema is when the alveoli sacs in the lungs can't hold their shape when the lungs are exhaling. The alveoli sacs are surrounded by tiny capillaries and this is where oxygen is absorbed into the blood. So with the diet I have metabolized Vitamin A inside the blood, and with the vaporized spinach I'm working on the alveoli sacs from the outside.

I don't know if this will work for anyone else, but I am so excited about my own results I felt I had to share this. When I read about other peoples' problems with emphysema I kind of feel like mine hadn't progressed that far. And I had already stopped smoking tobacco and marijuana. So these factors may effect the results

Cautionary notes: It is possible to overdose on Vitamin A. It can cause nausea, liver problems, jaundice, and even hair loss. At one point I added a fish oil supplement while still maintaining the diet and I started getting heavy post nasal drip. When I stopped taking the supplement that went away.

Hi, be careful to balance out Vitamin A with Vitamin D. Also, some people cannot convert beta carotene to Vit A no matter how many carrots they eat.

I am aware of those studies - and I am contemplating whether mixing 2% retin A (tretinoin - something many women keep around for acne) with DMSO in a chest rub might work as a transdermal route to reaching the lungs - rather than inhaling spinach vapors. I have no idea of the safety issues, so I am not recommending this, just putting it out there as a thought and wondering if this has occurred to any other readers.
