Natural Cures and Remedies for COPD

Bronchodilators are masters at opening the respiratory pathways to assist with breathing, whether resulting from asthma, bronchitis, pleurisy, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), or smoker’s cough. In my opinion, Mormon tea is the best herbal remedy for opening the airways. Unfortunately, the herb ma huang, the active component of Mormon tea and the source of ephedra, is di?cult to find because of past abuse of ephedra in weight-loss products. Nevertheless, ma huang is one of the best herbs for opening airways quickly when breath is restricted. E?ective bronchodilators include coleus forskohlii, grinde-lia, lobelia, ma huang, and red clover.

The leading cause of COPD is smoking, though extreme air pollution can degrade lung capacity. COPD may start to develop within five to ten years after a person starts smoking. Smoker’s cough is one sign of COPD, as is the tendency for a head cold to move to the chest. By the time a person reaches his or her late fifties or early sixties, reduced lung function may result in shortness of breath, making washing, cooking, and dressing difficult.

fish oils may reduce the impact of air pollutants on lungs and help maintain normal lung function. This does not prove that these nutrients might help reduce the risk or severity of COPD. However, it is likely that these nutrients would exert some benefits in COPD, as long as they were consumed long before lung damage became irreversible.

Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is a chronic blockage of the airways, resulting from chronic bronchitis or emphysema. Chronic bronchitis is defined as a persistent cough with sputum, without a medically identifiable cause. Emphysema describes an enlargement of minute air sacs, called alveoli, and the destruction of their walls, which impair lung function. When the lungs cannot take in adequate oxygen, the body’s cells become oxygen-deprived.

In the United States an estimated 14 million people have COPD, and approximately 104,000 die from it each year.

Smoking: Smoking can lead to the lower esophageal sphincter becoming more relaxed – thus allowing stomach acids to move up. Smoking also increases the level of acid produced in the stomach. Even more seriously, smoking can lead to COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), which is exacerbated by acid reflux.
