I'll try to do my best, but realize this is not medical advice. It's
merely educational information that I'm am freely providing to you at your

Most people are under the impression that emphysema is a one way street.
Once you have this condition, the best you can hope for is to slow down
its progress, but you can't reverse it or cure it. However, I don't
agree with that common conclusion.
The vast majority of people believe that conclusion is true because
the entire country is under the domination of allopathic medicine (drug
medicine) and allopathy has proven to be a dismal failure with emphysema,
cancer, etc. So our allopathic doctors tell us that nothing can be done,
but is that true? No, not necessarily. Those conclusions only mean
that there's nothing that ALLOPATHY can offer to cure the disease, but
that doesn't mean it's isn't curable. By the way, do you know that there
is a law on the books that says that only ALLOPATHIC doctors can use the
word "cure" in describing the end or complete reversal of a disease condition?
Anyone else, other than a licensed allopathic doctor, can be prosecuted
for using the word "cure" even if just TALKING about reversing disease
in a public forum. Such is the control of the medical mafia in this country.
I'm firmly of the belief that any health condition is curable because
the body and mind possess an unlimited capacity to heal itself. It's necessary
to do a number of things to allow that healing to take place though. A
long term, chronic disease takes a lot more work than a short term, new
affliction. You have to work hard both on the physical level and on the
mental/spiritual plane to bring about desirable changes, but it is possible
to improve-sometimes dramatically. It depends on how much effort, sincerity,
and devotion you apply to this work.
1) Physical: There are supplements and foods that you can take which
can have the effect of rebuilding the leathery membranes of your lung avioli
into softer and more pliable cells. These will then expand more and allow
more intake of air. I need to look up which supplements work best in this
regard. I can't remember off the top of my head, but MSM does come to mind.
I'll check. There are other therapies that can help as well. Hyperbaric
oxygen for one, but there are also possibilities in electromedicine as
well. I'll get back to you on these.
2. Mental/Spiritual: The most effective manner of healing can be accomplished
through the mind and the heart. Most people would not believe this, but
it's true. Non belief and doubt are the first obstacles to overcome if
you expect to achieve anything here. Thoughts are AGENTS OF CREATION. You
need to remember that. You can create disease and disharmony through the
mind and you can also create health and harmony through the mind. It cuts
Most cases of cancer, are more due to mental disharmony and negative
thoughts than a purely physical basis, although a physical irritation
can get the ball rolling and trigger the cancer that was waiting to break
out due to the negative mindset of the individual. Of course,
you can still get cancer if you go overboard to irritate the body like
being a heavy smoker for many decades, but even then it's POSSIBLE (but
not easy) to pull out of it, if you do the work that's required.
You should try to obtain these books and read them very carefully and
