The first book to address emphysema and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) from a nutritional and alternative medicine approach

· Explains the benefits of detoxification, dietary changes, and food combining

· Details 45 suggested herbs and 26 nutritional supplements as well as information on how to stop smoking

Approximately 35 million people in the United States have been diagnosed with some form of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)--emphysema constituting 18 million of that group. Worldwide, as many as 293 million people suffer with these conditions. COPD is the fourth leading cause of death in America, claiming nearly 120,000 lives annually. Yet conventional approaches to treatment, with their regimens of drugs and unceasing physical therapy, provide neither cure nor significant relief.

In Natural Therapies for Emphysema and COPD, Robert Green shows that alternative holistic therapies ranging from herbs to homeopathy offer great promise in relieving COPD’s debilitating symptoms. Starting with the basics of the physiology of respiration, Green presents a comprehensive program that includes detoxification, dietary changes, nutritional supplements, and herbal medicine; breathing techniques and exercise options such as aerobics, yoga, qigong, and tai chi; and alternative therapies such as homeopathy, acupuncture, and massage--noting how and why each therapy works. He also details how to stop smoking, includes resources for alternative health practitioners, and provides sources for the alternative products recommended.

From the Back Cover:

ALTERNATIVE MEDICINE / HEALTH

“An important addition to the growing body of literature on natural medicine, Natural Therapies for Emphysema and COPD provides a much needed and in-depth approach to natural therapies for chronic respiratory disorders. Highly recommended.”
--James Strohecker, CEO of HealthWorld Online and executive editor of Alternative Medicine: The Definitive Guide

“Robert Green Jr.’s book on emphysema and COPD is a landmark work. I recommend it as a reference book for all COPD patients, families, professionals, and anyone else seeking self-care tools and other alternatives to complement conventional COPD treatment.”
--Vijai Sharma, Ph.D., director of the Behavioral Medicine Center in Cleveland, Tennessee
