mother was diagnosed with emphysema and COPD in 2003.
Signs of the disease were not yet present however,
conventional emphysema treatments were added to her
daily regimen purportedly to slow the progress of
the disease by masking its symptoms.
had worked in a hospital years earlier and remembered
the emphysema patients. I remembered their slow but
steady decline until, eventually, they were no longer
being admitted. I assumed correctly that they had
succumbed to the disease.
the next 2 and a half years I made certain that my
mother took every prescribed medication, performed
every nebulizer treatment and attended every scheduled
Pulmonary Rehab session.
had quit smoking yet this disease continued progressing.
I understood that smoking had caused the emphysema.
What I did not understand was why this disease was
progressing so long after my mother had quit smoking.
I asked her Pulmonary Spceialist what was causing
this progression. He told me that they simply did
not know why emphysema progressed so long after smoking
cessation. He said it was a mystery!
knowing any better, I set out to solve this mystery.
My degree is in engineering and in engineering when
something is removed from the equation, it is no longer
a factor in the outcome. Therefore, smoking could
not be causing the progression of my mother's emphysema
since she no longer smoked. It had to be something
else. It had to be some sort of living organism since
it seemed to be proliferating in my mother's lungs.
medical industry seemed very good at measuring and
testing everything. They were able to quantify everything,
they just never had any answers or solutions.
watched my mother slowly decline over these 2 and
a half years. She continued the conventional
emphysema treatments which did provide temporary
relief from the primary symptoms of emphysema. The
problem was that once these drugs wore off, she was
right back where she started before taking the drug.
Not one of these conventional emphysema treatments
provided any lasting improvement in my mother's condition!
realized that if my mother was going to survive this
disease we would have to find our own solutions. The
treatments being utilized by the medical industry
would obviously not provide any actual improvement.
We would need to rely on them for temporary relief
from the debilitating symptoms but not for anything
I continued researching my mother continued deteriorating.
After the entire 2 and a half years under the care
of the medical industry she had deteriorated down
to "End Stage Emphysema" or "Stage
IV." Their conventional emphysema treatments
were providing no lasting improvements.
weighed only 77 pounds down from her normal 103 pounds.
She required 4 liters of supplemental oxygen 24/7.
She could only eat about a cup of food or she would
complain that she couldn't breathe. I had watched
her meal size decline over this time period and made
a mental note of this fact. It would prove relevant
later on. She could only sleep about an hour at a
time before waking in the middle of an exacerbation
("shortness of breath").
this latter stage of the disease I was shocked to
see these conventional emphysema treatments stop working!
Once by one they stopped providing the temporary relief
they had provided in the beginning. First was the
albuterol sulfate int he nebulizer. I called
her doctor and he switched her to DuoNeb
which is albuterol sulfate with Ipratropium
was Spiriva. My mother said it wasn't doing
anything any more and she refused to use it. My mother's
Pulmonary Specialist told her to swallow after doing
the treatment. This seemed to work for a few more
weeks but also eventually stopped providing the temporary
also contains Ipratropium Bromide. I knew
there were problems associated with these drugs as
they have a tendency to cause bromide toxicity. Naturally,
her doctor never mentioned this potential problem.
next conventional emphysema
treatment that stopped working was Advair.
I had read an article by Morgan Lord in the May 14,
2009 Edition of Men's Health magazine naming the 8
medications that doctors prescribe for their patients
but would not take even if they were presented with
the same medical issues. Advair was one of
the 8. (8
Drugs Doctors Would Never Take) The
disappointing part of this article is they consult
a guy with a doctorate in pharmacology who recommends
a corticosteroid as a new and better strategy. I disagree!
Combivent rescue inhaler had been a life-saver
for acute exacerbations. One inhaler would last at
least 2 or 3 weeks. Now, in End Stage, it
lasted only a few hours since it was no longer prividing
the temporary relief from symptoms it once had provided.
the entire 2 and a half years since my mother's diagnosis,
her Primary Care Physician and her Pulmonary Specialist
scheduled her appointments every 3 months. Now, in
End Stage, they began scheduling her every 6 months!
This is at a desperate time when she needed more help
than ever! I eventually realized the reason her doctors
were not upset and frantic like I was. It was because
my mother was dying right on schedule. Their tests
indicated that she would be dead before the next appointment!
you are still trusting the medical industry I understand.
I did the same thing at the beginning. Once I saw
them fail miserably I stopped trusting them and their
advice. They wanted my mother to shut up and die like
everyone else with this disease. They tried laying
a heavy guilt trip on her for smoking cigarettes.
They were not trying to make her feel better. It seemed
more like they were trying to eliminate any liability
they might incur. I was shocked and furious at how
they treated my dying mother but it only served to
strengthen my resolve and accelerate my research efforts.
research eventually spanned more than 4 and a half
years and totaled more than 6500 hours compiling more
than 30,000 pages of information. You will be shocked
at what I uncovered and relieved to see there are
to the problem of emphysema disease progression.
found researchers who had uncovered alternative
and natural cures for diseases they were studying
that did not have side-effects. I was surprised and
disappointed that their research findings had been
ignored by pharmaceutical industry-controlled mainstream
media and the medical industry.
found a practicing MD who developed an 8-step cure
for allergies and asthma and was subsequently ignored
by his colleagues (all the other MDs) who still prescribe
medications for these illnesses which must be taken
every day by their patients!
eventually realized that the progression of emphysema
and other COPD related diseases, must be the result
of a pathogen entering the
lungs through smoking. Even after smoking cessation
this pathogen is still present and will still cause
problems years, even decades later. Ever known someone
who quit smoking and was subsequently diagnosed 20
or more years later with emphysema? I believe this
is the result of the presence and proliferation of
you like what I am saying or not, you have to agree
that it is logical in the purest sense of the word
and what the medical industry is claiming is not!
If you're not convinced yet, read on! The progression
of this disease is no longer a mystery, in my opinion!
