Things that may help with COPD and Asthma.

This is not medical advice I am posting this for educational and informational purposes.

Many of these things will help with asthma also because they reduce inflammation and histamines. Oxidative stress is a major cause of chronic illness including COPD.

http://erj.ersjournals.com/content/39/6/1368

Excess Oxidative stress leads to chronic illness there is a test to see if you have excess oxidative stress. If you do not get it resolved you cannot heal.

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0009898103004534

There are other test that can help identify which areas of the anti-oxidant system are working and which may not be working. This can help identify the sources of high ROS levels or other toxins produced in the body from oxidative stress.

So far this is what they know about asthma and allergies. I have looked at many studies on allergies and asthma and I do not know why they do not see it but in all the studies the cytokines they mention are stimulated by inflammation. Which indicates there is a problem that needs addressed and asthma is a symptom not the cause. It seems the thing to do now days though is to look at the symptoms and not the cause. What has happened to science that has caused them to become blind to the whole picture? They only look at symptoms and how to treat them instead of trying to find the cause.  I compare that to having a flat tire. The air continually leaks out. Instead of trying to find why the air leaks out you try to figure out how to prevent the air leaking out without addressing the cause. Wouldn’t it be easier to find the cause of the leaking air and repair it if possible?

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5800381/

When someone does figure out what the problem is they seem to go to extremes to solve the problem. Instead of looking for the cause of the inflammation they try to figure out how to prevent the inflammation. As with the flat tire, would it not be easier to find the cause like maybe a leaky valve stem or a nail in the tire and patch the tire or replace the valve stem. There are many causes of inflammation, heavy metals, an imbalance in Omega 3 and Omega 6 fatty acids. Diets are too high in Omega 6 now days and Omega 3 levels need to be higher then Omega 6.  Over consumption of processed sugar causes inflammation. Infection can cause inflammation. Also it can be caused by vaccine injury that causes a T cell imbalance. The list of causes goes on and on.

I believe the clinical trials failed when they tried to reduce inflammation in COPD patients is because they where treating the symptoms and not the cause of the inflammation which is a common theme in allopathic medicine.
