Conversations about COPD (Addicted to Carbs & Dairy)
GM Feb 3 2014
The diet JC is eating will most likely cause additional illnesses. The diet in my book is also used by Dr. Hunter in his cancer research, Dr. Pescatore in his cure for asthma and allergies and by Dr. Fuhrman who is currently on PBS touting this diet as the cure for every disease. The most common illnesses and problems associated with the bad diet JC is eating are type II diabetes and obesity. Harvard Medical School states that, “You can affect chronic diseases by improving your diet.” The reason you don’t put sugar and garbage into your car’s gas tank is because it will no longer run if you do. The same goes for your body. If you don’t provide it with the fuel it needs to survive and thrive it will shut down and not run. The diet change is imperative whether you have COPD or not.

I am 60 years old,i have had copd 10 years and i don’t follow any programme has regards food simply because no one told me,until only last week the chemist pulled me into his office on a questionnaire and informed me on eating fruit and veg,all the doctors and nurses i have seen over the years have never mentioned diets.I sometimes think they don’t know what my breathing problems are and the only way anyone knows is when you are on that slab and confirm cause of death,i am sorry to be so blunt but that is the reality of it all in my mind.

Im just recovering from being deathly disk for the second time. I thought I was going to choke to death. I bought some good books to learn more about COPD. And knew I had to give up all dairy. I had hung on to butter, yogurt and cheese. All are gone now. I bought some more books. Ordered Yerba Santa oil & gum wood oil. Work best taken together in 8 oz. water. The mucus is so much less I can breathe so much better. It’s such a relief not to be choking. I did change my diet. Using coconut milk, coconut oil & coconut flour. Needless to say more books. The web has a wealth of info. Google it.

Thank you everyone for your comments. You are right Penny J Butler, I need to slow down and start looking into positive changes. I have quit smoking so that is one hurdle I have overcome so far. My weight needs to be the next thing for sure. I have gained weight since quitting and I don’t feel good. I honestly believed that if i was a stage one for instance, that if i quit smoking, I would stay at a stage one. I had no idea it progressed and that has scared the life out of me.
