Emphysema is a condition in which there is persistent enlargement of the air spaces (alveoli) in the lungs which results in the breakdown of the airspace walls, which in turn results in a decrease in respiratory function.
The lungs loose elasticity and are unable to expand and contract efficiently.
Symptoms of emphysema can include breathlessness, a chronic cough and at times wheezing when under exertion, or dizziness due to lack of oxygen.
Although the lung damage in cases of emphysema is irreversible, I have in the past seen good results while treating emphysemic conditions with herbs, in the reduction of the frequent use of antibiotics and in the reduction of the number of hospital admissions necessary throughout the winter.
Basically the treatment is aimed at improving the immune status and therefore the likely hood of infection and improving the functional capacity of the lungs.
There are many useful herbs that can make a big difference to those with emphysema. Herbs that have expectorant properties, those that soothe and those that have antibiotic properties.
All work best if prepared specifically for your own use.

As always increasing mineral intake via the use of Colloidal minerals will also greatly help improve the immune status and help prevent the incidence of infection.
At times I have also found that the use of supplements containing Quercetin help greatly as it can reduce inflammation and help prevent further infection.
Breathing exercises can also make a marked difference. Try getting into Yoga.
The slow gentle stretching combined with breathing exercise is excellent for emphysema
sufferers as it can help improve the functional capacity of the lungs.
