    I've just been diagnosed with "a small amount of emphysema." Is this reversible? I am not a smoker, though I did smoke moderately 40 years ago.

    Emphysema is not reversible.  It is a chronic debilitating disease.  Treatments concentrate on interrupting the progress of the disease along with keeping the patient as healthy as possible for as long as possible.  Emphysema now is placed into a category known as COPD, or Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease.

     

    Smokers must quit immediately if the wish to prolong lung activity.  Holistic approaches to treatment can be effective if they relieve symptoms and promote dialog with heath care professionals.

     

    Good luck I will be praying for you.

    • Emphysema is a progressive lung disease that results in shortness of breath and reduces your capacity for physical act

    Need to search for the cause.  Something the medical community doesn't do. They just want to prescribe drugs that take care of symptoms.

     

    You need to learn what the body needs to heal itself.  I can share some information if you are open to learning.  It has nothing to do with drugs.  I study the work of many Nobel Scientists and they have kept me and Mom(80) well.  You can start by listening to this recording  =//tinyurl.com/barneyfeb709  and  1.212.990.7025.   itisup2me@yahoo.com
