my mother was first diagnosed with emphysema I made sure we
had all prescribed medications and emphysema treatments and
that she took them right on time every day. The intense disappointment
came when her condition continued deteriorating.
had quit smoking so I knew the deterioration was not directly
caused from smoking and none of the doctors she was seeing
seemed interested in addressing the big question namely, WHY
is her emphysema getting worse?
thought the expensive emphysema medications and emphysema
treatments would stop the progression of the disease. I researched
emphysema every day and night looking for answers but found
nothing for more than 10 months.
realized the problem later. My research was only locating
web sites controlled and/or provided by the pharmaceutical
industry. They told how the progression of the disease could
not be stopped or cured but could be slowed down by utilizing
may have noticed that as the disease progresses the deterioration
accelerates even if you continue using all the prescribed
emphysema medications and emphysema treatments. You may have
also realized that when the patient is in Stage IV, or "End
Stage," the medications and treatments, one-by-one, stop
working. This happened to my mother. I did not take my mother
off of any medications. When they stopped working, she would
not use them.
watching my mother's condition deteriorate, in the absence
of smoking and while taking all the prescribed medications,
I began searching for alternative
emphysema treatments that might offer permanent improvement.
drugs provided temporary relief from the emphysema symptoms.
Once the drugs wore off she was right back where she had started
with no lasting improvement.
one truth in all the pharmaceutical web sites is their admission
that you can slow the disease with their emphysema medications
and emphysema treatments but you cannot survive the disease
using them. They sort of dance around this admission but if
you look hard enough it is there.
convince you that you did this to yourself and that they are
helping extend your life with their expensive medications.
I wanted a better option for my mother and I was not convinced
that it was impossible for an emphysema patient to survive
the disease and return to normal life, healthy and happy.
I was convinced that my mother and any other emphysema patient
would absolutely not survive if all they did was take the
prescribed emphysema medications and emphysema treatments.
