I am a non smoker and have just been diagnosed as having "Emphysema"!

I am having repeat attacks of Pneumonia and the future is beginning to look a little bleak!

I have always kept up a reasonable level of physical fitness but recently have been unable to exercise due to breathlessness and complete lack of energy!

As we are just heading into what is normally our "allergy" season I am a little fearful of just what this year may bring!

Trying to follow the "Pulmonary support protocols" to see how that goes. Any other suggestions?

As I recall you had access to a QXCI/SCIO unit. There are some protocols for that unit that are designed for countering the energies of emphysema. These might be helpful to you.

Add antiviral for pneumonia - if nothing else your Elderberry!   So sorry to hear that you are ill! Try going off all grains because of their kinship to grasses and grass pollen......worked for me!!

Don't know that I am qualified for giving advice, so take it and research.  But after my cancer ten years ago, I had lung damage from one of the chemo ingredients.  I was on oxygen for a month.  I looked into it, and found that NAC works for lung issues.  I took it for over a year, and have had no further issues.  Good luck to you.

NAC is a wonderful benefit for lungs and is one of the main ingredients in Dr. D's Redoxa.

Wishing the best for you and hoping all of the above suggestions work!
I was diagnosed 2 years ago with "adult onset asthma" and have never smoked a day in mu life! BUT......my whole family smoked while I was growing up. More and more, I am hearing about non-smokers (especially baby boomers) being told they now have some sort of respiratory disease.

If you did not get exposed to toxins in your home or at work,  it is less likely due to your age it is a genetic issue.

Thanks for all your replies, I have procured most of the ingredients required to enable me to follow the "O" group "Pulmonary support protocols" in the "Blood type encyclopaedia"!

I will try this out and monitor how my condition pans out.

I will also buy a "blood oxygen" exchange (finger) monitoring device off the net and try to track that too.

Have also had a AAT deficiency blood test done but have not heard back yet!

Just about to launch into my most allergic hay fever season so am pretty apprehensive about how the season will go!

Thanks again everyone. Cheers, John.

The Breathe Easy Pack will make a huge difference for you.

Definitely get the Redoxa (NAC) and also the suggestion to take elderberry as an anti-viral is a good one.  Maybe there is yet hope of knocking this thing out for good.  Wishing you all the best, as I've experienced some of what you're going through and it is rough.  Hang in there.  The fact that you've never smoked gives me a lot of hope that maybe the experts were wrong to diagnose you as "emphysemic" just yet.  That makes it sound chronic, which right now, yes, it is, but hopefully not forever, which a diagnosis of emphysema makes it sound like.  It can take a long, LONG time to fully recover from pneumonia, so don't lose hope re really turning this thing around.  Take the elderberry (I suggest DPN's Proberry Caps, which I use regularly and swear by, or you could go to a health food store and get pure elderberry concentrate, which is great mixed into seltzer water for a delish homemade "soda" tonic...but the concentrate is expensive--it goes fast.  The Proberry Caps last longer, are very high-quality/potent, and have other ingredients that work synergistically with the elderberry), take the Redoxa, and also I strongly suggest WALKING, which really helped me recover from a year or so of having shortness-of-breath (which I think was due to undiagnosed pneumonia, which looking back, I now think I had--undiagnosed because I was too DUMB to find and go to a primary care doctor during that time).

Eat right for your type, take the Redoxa, take elderberry, walk, walk, walk, and stay far away from second-hand-smoke, whatever you do.  If you happen to live with a smoker or smokers, ask them to PLEASE not smoke in the house or around you at all.  Tell them it is a serious health matter.  I have become the most assertive person on earth re cigarette smoke, even though I'm actually very non-assertive in most situations.  If at all possible, I will remove myself from the smoker, but if I can't, I WILL ask her or him to please, GET THE HECK AWAY FROM ME!  

Best of luck to you.  I really feel like you could improve a lot and shouldn't give up hope of that just yet.

P.S.  Get yourself a high-quality CoQ10 supplement and take that, too, ideally with some good quality fat such as olive oil, to help it absorb.

pipnjon,
I "had" asthma for a couple decades- adult onset, terrible experience. However I changed my diet and now do not have it. At all. For 7-8 yrs. I began to eat meat, went off gluten and most grains (except rice).
good sups: NAC (redoxa is great)
vit. C in large doses
ubiquinol (a type of CoQ10)
gigartina (brown or red marine algae) (claims it can rebuild lungs)
and probably more.....

Best of luck!

When I had a sudden and severe first experience with Asthma a few months ago, I did a lot of research on options for myself.  As part of my exploring, I discovered Salt Inhalers.  They are ceramic 'inhalers' that are 2 parts, so they can be opened and the salt changed.  I bought a large bag of coarse ground Himalayan pink salt, along with a salt inhaler and used it throughout the day for several weeks.  After I saw improvement, I dropped down to use as needed.

There are many varieties on the internet and I shopped around for one that would open.  Most had a little opening at the bottom and I didn't like the idea of trying to refill it through that tiny hole.  
This is the one I purchased:
http://www.himalayansalt.com/Salt-Inhalers_c_42.html

There is a write-up toward the bottom of that page that explains the reasoning behind the use of something like this.

Hey thanks people, I am slowly getting better or at least feeling better and not coughing so much now!

Still wheezing like an old (out of tune) church organ in cold air and at night! Cheers, John.

Great update!  Like I said:  walk, walk, walk, eat right for your type, take some Proberry Caps and CoQ10, and then walk some more.  

And whatever you do, stay FAR away from secondhand cigarette smoke!
