"The global scenario of diseases is shifting from infectious diseases to non-communicable diseases, with chronic conditions such as heart disease, stroke and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) now being the chief causes of death globally."
— World Health Organization (WHO) “World Health
Hundreds of millions of people suffer every day from chronic respiratory conditions. As WHO estimated (2004), there are 235 million people having asthma, 64 million people having chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) while millions have allergic rhinitis and other often under-diagnosed chronic respiratory diseases.
The most important risk factors for preventable chronic respiratory conditions are: tobacco smoking (causing “smokers’ lung”); indoor air pollution; outdoor pollution; allergens; and occupational risks and vulnerability.
One of common chronic lung conditions is COPD. It increases breathing difficulty. There are two primary forms of COPD: Chronic bronchitis (identified by a long-lasting cough with mucus/phlegm) and emphysema (destruction and enlargement of the air sacs (alveoli) in the lungs). Many people with COPD have a mix of both conditions.
The most common symptoms of COPD are breathlessness, or a “need for air,” asthma/wheezing, excessive sputum production, and a chronic cough.
Those who have infection associated with COPD are commonly treated with:
Frequent use of antibiotics, steroids and inhalers carries long-term consequences, including weakened immunity, sinus infection, rash/hives, urinary retention causing organ damage, and lowered bone mineral density leading to osteoporosis.
Asian Wisdom for Improving Chronic Lung Conditions Holistically & Synergistically:
This comprehensive and holistic approach targets multiple components in the pathways of chronic pulmonary conditions and simultaneously allows relief of symptoms. It also re-establishes the healthy immune system, thereby, reducing the change of infection and exacerbation of the existing conditions.
"Your immune system is your interface with the environment. If it is healthy and doing its job right, you can interact with germs and not get infections, with allergens and not have allergic reactions, with carcinogens and not get cancer. A healthy immune system is the cornerstone of good general health."
- Andrew Weil, M.D., in Natural Health, Natural Medicine (2004), p. 210.
A family is a unit composed not only of children but of men, women, an occasional animal, and the common cold - Ogden Nash Every year the Center for Disease Control (CDC) expects that 5% to 20% of the population will get the flu and that 200,000 people will be hospitalized because of it. Even more than that will get a cold. Is it inevitable?
Chronic cough is not a disease in itself; rather it is a symptom of an underlying condition. Chronic cough is a common problem and the reason for many doctor visits.
"People are taking two, three, sometimes four different medications at a time to relieve their symptoms quickly and effectively because they are increasingly unsatisfied with their allergy medications. This can be a very costly, dangerous and frequently ineffective solution to treating bothersome symptoms," Dr. Alpen Patel, a medical-scientific council member of the Asthma and Allergy Association
