What does c.o.p.d desease mean & how serious is it?
also can it be controlled with natural remedy's.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, is Emphysema. Very serious, usually resulting in death. There are treatments, but it's not a curable disease.

C.O.P.D means constructive obs ruction pulmonary disorder usually you can use inhalers tablets but natural remedy's are hard to find.

COPD is short for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease....a few conditions fall under this...asthma,emphysema.....once you have it you have it...you can lessen the symptoms by not smoking,losing weight if your overweight and other things...Im not sure if it can be controlled naturally...all COPDers Ive treated usually get breathing treatments and some are bad enough that they are intubated so I breath for them (using a BVM or venturi)....

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease

Check out the web-site

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a broad spectrum term meaning your lungs are damaged. It's "chronic" which means you have to live with it, it's not gonna go away, you just have to treat the symptoms. Emphysema, chronic bronchitis, pulmonary fibrosis, are all examples of this type of lung disease. They aren't curable. Symptoms can be managed with meds and inhalers, and sometimes and o2 tank is needed at home if it's bad enough.

chronic bstructive pulmonary disease:
A progressive lung disease process characterized by difficulty breathing, wheezing, and a chronic cough. Complications include bronchitis, pneumonia, and lung cancer.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is what the letters stand for. It is serious as often the most important Oxygen exchange cells are scarred or blocked so they cannot carry out their work and the person then survives on less oxygen and energy reserves. Smoking is one culprit, so good to stop if so, but takes a few years for full benefits from stopping. Frequent chest infections can also set this up. Sometimes moving to a new locale can help as different triggers. Generally try to keep fit by moderate exercise and healthy diet, without too much fat and balance in your life. Can live a long time if take care.

chronic obstructive pulmonary disease--yes it is very serious. I do not know about natural remedies. Most copders use Spiriva. If you beleive you have COPD then you should see a doctor right away. It will be hard to contrl without meds. Check out lungusa.org for information on the dsiease and support groups.

Everyone is right, it is Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, a catch all for emphysema, chronic bronchitis and asthma.

It is serious but not necessarily a death sentence. While it can be treated, it cannot be cured. With good medical care and monitoring ..it is possible to slow the progression of the disease.

I don't know if it can be controlled with natural remedies. I, myself, am on Prednisone, Spiriva, Advair 250/50 and Xopenex via nebulizer 4 times a day as needed.
I would be afraid to try any natural remedies because of the seriousness of COPD.

Your Pulmonologist or Dr probably needs to do a Pulmonary Function test. Mine revealed a 58% lung capacity. Except for alot of shortness of breath..I still hold down a full time job--it is :however, a sit down job. There is some housework I cannot do and there are times...when just getting ready for work tires me out and leaves me breathless.

You will also notice that any respiratory virus that goes around will inevitably find it's way to you and go straight down into your chest...so if it is possible....avoid those who are sick.

Most importantly---listen to your body. If you are short of breath..it is saying slow down and take it easy... Learn Pursed Lip breathing and get to the Dr at the first sign of a respiratory bug...there is nothing worse than ending up in the hospital with pneumonia or an exacerbation of COPD.

~~Good Luck~~
