COPD: An inflammatory, obstructive lung disorder characterized by chronically poor airflow due to scar tissue formation (fibrosis) and chronic inflammation.


Like so many so-called ‘diseases’, COPD is not a disease at all, but a collection of symptoms the experts sew together in a collage in order to create the illusion of disease.

What the experts forget to mention is that they DO NOT HAVE A CLUE as to why, how COPD manifests, so instead they offer very bad band-aids and preposterously barbaric remedies to alleviate the suffering by way of reduction of symptoms.  This, they call ‘cure!”

Symptoms: poor breathing ability; lack of oxygen in the blood stream and tissues; low metabolic rate due to lack of air and acidosis overload from accumulation of excess CO2 (carbon dioxide); accumulation of toxic waste throughout the system,

Congestion, sluggish bowels and poor digestion are also elements in the progression of COPD.  Oddly, while smoking certainly weakens the respiratory system and body in general, smoking is NOT a prerequisite of the disorder.

Much like Mesothelioma [which supposedly is caused by asbestos exposure] COPD frequently occurs in people who have NEVER smoked or suffered exposure to asbestos.  Cystic fibrosis is another VERY SERIOUS health disorder that involves severe inflammation of the lungs bronchi.

Deal with the cause(s) driving the inflammation that manifests in symptoms of COPD etc. and the problem settles down.  Ignore the causes and listen to the experts and you will surely continue to suffer.  Like it or not, they HAVE NO ANSWERS, just bad band-aids!

COPD is an autoimmune response NOT A DISEASE as is bronchitis and asthma.  Please think in terms of manifestation of the Autoimmune Attack Cycle which you can read about by clicking hyperlink.

Also, insufficient intake of bio-friendly iodine, selenium and magnesium ions plays a MAJOR part in the development of COPD.

Bottom line, if you wish to avoid, improve or rid yourself of the symptoms associated with COPD and its cousins, think ‘terrain’ and learn to care for yourself.

Know, diet and dietary habits also play a part in all breathing disorders.  Read, Special Insights, Change Your Food Habits, Change Your Diet by clicking hyperlink to learn the details of insulin and leptin resistance and its effects on COPD.

Scar tissue formation goes with COPD, and must be addressed for restoration of blood and oxygen flow, elimination of inflammation and healing to naturally occur.
