Recently my emphysema has become worse. I could take my medicine and work around the house but not now, seems like over night I went to a new level with this disease.I have been reading the different posts lately on this site and decided to use the nebulizer with hydrogen peroxide and the silver.
The question I have is what should I do first and for how long?
Neither one is really going to really treat your emphysema. Emphysema results from a loss of elastin in the tissue so the alveoli stretch and stay stretched. The elastin can be restored over time with silica supplements, vitamin C sources (preferably natural) and herbs such as gotu kola, plantain leaf and boneset (Eupatorium).
If you are simply trying to clean the lungs out then I would go with diluted food grade hydrogen peroxide. Food grade is 35% peroxide so it needs to be diluted before use. Start by adding one ounce of the peroxide to 11 ounces of distilled water to make a 3% solution. Then you would add 5-10 drops of this to your nebulizer filled with water. I recommend doing this several times daily to help keep infections at bay and to help promote healing. Peroxides are generated by the body for a number of reasons including for the destruction of pathogens, activation of white blood cells that fight infection, destroying cancer cells, etc. But the peroxide does not need to be concentrated to perform these functions.
I have been looking into what causes the elastin in the lungs to breakdown and Alpha-1 Anti-trypsin seems to be a possible problem. It is made by liver to block trypsin and protect the lungs, but if the liver is clogged from too many liver stones (from carbs and gmo's), it may not supply the trypsin inhibitor.
Has anyone with emphysema ever completely flushed their liver?
I know that silica is good for the bones, but didn't know it could repair lung tissues.
Also, here is a research article showing lowcarb diet improves copd.
One of the goals in treating patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who suffer from hypoxemia, hypercapnia, and malnutrition is to correct the malnutrition without increasing the respiratory quotient and minimize the production of carbon dioxide. This 3-wk study evaluated the efficacy of feeding a high-fat, low-carbohydrate (CHO) nutritional supplement as opposed to a high-carbohydrate diet in COPD patients on parameters of pulmonary function.
Sixty COPD patients with low body weight (<90% ideal body weight) were randomized to the control group, which received dietary counseling for a high-CHO diet (15% protein, 20% to 30% fat, and 60% to 70% CHO), or the experimental group, which received two to three cans (237 mL/can) of a high-fat, low-CHO oral supplement (16.7% protein, 55.1% fat, and 28.2% CHO) in the evening as part of the diet. Measurements of lung function (forced expiratory volume in 1 s or volume of air exhaled in 1 s of maximal expiration, minute ventilation, oxygen consumption per unit time, carbon dioxide production in unit time, and respiratory quotient) and blood gases (pH, arterial carbon dioxide tension, and arterial oxygen tension) were taken at baseline and after 3 wk.
Lung function measurements decreased significantly and forced expiratory volume increased significantly in the experimental group.
This study demonstrates that pulmonary function in COPD patients can be significantly improved with a high-fat, low-CHO oral supplement as compared with the traditional high-CHO diet.
