Some Natural Alternative Options for Sufferers of COPD

Diligent analysis, determining what’s right for one’s individual needs and appropriate within one’s environment needs to be researched further, along with the mindset of making lifestyle changes. Below are some natural alternatives for COPD sufferers to consider.

Cannabis: As mentioned above, one substance that has only recently been discovered as highly effective for COPD sufferers is cannabis. Unfortunately, most if not all states that allow medical marijuana don’t include COPD as an allowable cannabis application. Some states leave what is not spelled out in its list of exemptions for cannabis-use open for a licensed physician’s discretion to prescribe it.

In some states, one may get around the tape—for example, a COPD sufferer may have also been diagnosed with arthritis, and approved for a medical marijuana card. Applying for the card using the diagnosis of arthritis gets one the medical marijuana card for what’s also needed for their COPD symptoms.

Cannabis Oil with THC: The most effective cannabis choice for most COPD sufferers is cannabis oil with THC, however, CBD or cannabidiol without THC is easier to get and seems to work for some early stage COPD sufferers, depending on its quality.

Edibles such as cannabutter and others last longer than the effects from smoking or “vaping” marijuana, (vaping is a less irritating method than smoking).

To determine what would work for your COPD or a friend’s or loved one’s, I recommend searching online for a COPD or cannabis group on Facebook or another social media / chat site.

Hydrogen Peroxide: A recent Health Impact News article covered the potential of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) use for flu symptoms and more. (Note: this protocol for COPD was not brought up in that article.)
H2O2 has improved the lives of many COPD sufferers. It may be ideal to nebulize hydrogen peroxide, but some simply spray it into the mouth while breathing in and some simply drink it. In both cases the H2O2 is diluted down from even 3% strength and more-so at 35%.

It’s important to use only distilled water for diluting only food grade hydrogen peroxide to appropriate levels. The following source uses 35% food grade H2O2 to begin with. Now there are 3% food grade solutions available, whereas prior to recently, the most common food grade solutions were 35%.

Most protocols for healing with H2O2 are based on the older situation with food grade hydrogen peroxide of 35% and decreasing it to 3-3.5% with distilled water. Here is one of those guidelines. More can be gleaned from testimonials accessed here.

Glutathione (nebulized): Glutathione is considered the master antioxidant. It is capable of replenishing itself in the liver after scooping out the free radicals that threaten to damage tissue on a cellular level. It should be in all cells, but various toxins from our environment and fake processed foods can and do get in the way of this metabolic process or simply overburden it.

When lung tissue cells become deficient from glutathione, external sources for this master antioxidant are needed. Glutathione taken orally is relatively useless. It is adulterated by the stomach before it gets to the small intestines to be absorbed into one’s blood. That’s why LET (liposomal encapsulation technology) is now used. LET lets glutathione get through the gastrointestinal tract intact. (Source)
