Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. (COPD) image 1

"It is easy to hate, and it is difficult to love. This is how the whole scheme of things works. All good things are difficult to achieve, and bad things are straightforward."

Confucius (551 BC – 479 BC) was a Chinese teacher, politician, and philosopher. By Simran Khurana (Updated March 18, 2017)

The article looks at smokers and non-smokers separately. For smokers, the cause of the disease is usually straightforward but not exclusive. For those who do not smoke (and there are quite a few) different approach is presented.

 

COPD (Asthma, Emphysema, Bronchitis) - Introduction.

Link:  Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) World Health Organization. 

COPD is a common disease among active and passive smokers and those exposed to contaminated air, yet not all smokers are ill. There are also COPD patients who have never smoked and have not been exposed to severe air pollution, and therefore a more comprehensive and in-depth explanation is required.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) combines a group of respiratory inflammatory diseases. (Asthma, Emphysema, Chronic bronchitis.)

  • According to WHO, Around 80% of the world's 1.1 billion smokers live in low- and middle-income countries.
  • Smoking results are devastating, with a low quality of life for smokers and high mortality rates, and yet, the percentage of smoking cessation is in the single digits.
  • The distribution of smokers worldwide indicates that environmental factors, nutrition, and Lifestyle significantly impact COPD's likelihood.
    • Men, on average, smoke more, but women tend to get sick more seriously! We will try to understand the reasons.
  • Most smokers try to quit smoking and fail!

The well-known story of the uncle who has smoked his entire life and lived to the age of 100 is not feasible in the modern era, with a lifestyle and diet that encourages inflammation in our bodies.

 

Self-healing is like "Performing miracles." Every human being has this capability. It just needs to be revealed.

The Self-healing approach - Weaning from smoking addiction.

Link: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. (Wikipedia)

What is Addiction?

  • Addiction is a compulsive, repetitive action that, over time, causes harm to the addict or the environment (or both) that the addict is aware of, except that they do not control the addiction. The reward mechanism of addiction is far more potent than any means of logic and persuasion.

Is smoking addiction a quantitative definition?

  • Smoking addicts will usually smoke much more than non-addicts, but the definition is not quantitative. The definition of addiction is a loss of control and a strong urge to smoke at any given moment without rejecting immediate satisfaction.

What is the difference between smoking addiction and just a bad habit?

  • The main difference is that addictions must have a distinctive reward mechanism while bad habits have no real reward, so getting rid of bad habits is relatively straightforward. Still, it is tough to stop addictions.

Is smoking a familial genetic predisposition or a socioeconomic social phenomenon?

  • Children of smokers and drinkers are more exposed, but the explanation is more profound than the question of accessibility. Other children also often have the option of obtaining alcoholic beverages and cigarettes. On average, the potential mental trauma in heavy smokers' homes is higher, especially in lower socioeconomic levels. 

The "Chinese method" of sharply reducing smoking. (Willpower and perseverance are still needed)

  • China is a country with one of the highest smoking rates globally. During my extended stay in China, I learned the method that seems practical (for those who want to quit) a sharp reduction in smoking.
  • For those who cannot quit smoking entirely or are in the weaning process, there is an alternative that significantly reduces the scope of smoking. (Still requires self-discipline)
  • The method is based on the obligation to drink freshly squeezed natural fresh juice throughout the day as a smoking condition! The juice can be grapefruit juice or any other natural squeezed juice. (Very sweet and Not orange juice.)
  • Smoking is limited to 2-3 cigarettes in the morning, after meals, and before bed. A total of 10-15 cigarettes a day. No more!
    In most cases, this is a sharp decline in smoking. The cumulative damage is significantly reduced as a result of drinking natural juices. The method may be ideal, but better than nothing!

Are e-cigarettes a less harmful alternative than tobacco?

  • E-cigarettes have been around for less than ten years and are very popular, especially with young people.
  • E-cigarettes are based on a tiny (battery-powered) heating element that heats a liquid that becomes aerosol and inhales into the airways. Different manufacturers have different fillers.
  • It would seem that e-cigarettes are less harmful because they have no tar, and nicotine levels are significantly lower than tobacco. There is no unanimity on the matter, but formaldehyde in some e-cigarettes is recognized as a carcinogen!

 

The self-healing approach to smoking addiction.

This article deals with smoking as a phenomenon of addiction that usually onset in adolescence and continues through adulthood. We will also explain the underlying causes of smoking and how to address it using self-healing rehab methodologies. 

  • All addictions, including smoking, allow the body to improve the energy flow in the specific blocked energetic center/s. (At the expense of extensive damage to many organs and systems.)

Why don't smoking addicts respond to persuasion?

  • Heavy smokers are not unreasonable people, nor are they self-destructive. In a state of addiction, the subconscious paralyzes reason in the smoking context, and thus, persuasion is not a helpful tool for healing smoking addiction.

The reward mechanism of addictions is chemical and primarily an energetic tool for conserving the critical life-force energy needed for survival.

  • Therefore, rehab from smoking addiction should eliminate the primary factor that created the need for addiction. (That is, to open the respective life-force energy blockages.)
  • Any addiction not only manifests itself in certain chemicals (such as nicotine) but also, and mainly as a psycho-energetic phenomenon. Releasing traumatic non-resolved issues from the past that caused the addiction is far more complicated than detoxification from the addictive substances.

Why do many smoking withdrawal programs fail in the long run?

  • The main difficulty in most rehab programs stems from the need to release from the subconscious mind the specific traumatic non-resolved event that caused the energy blockage, which created the need for addiction. Cleansing the body of the addictive toxins is relatively easy compared to the energy part that does not get any attention, mainly because Western culture does not acknowledge the existence of life-force energy.
  • Drug treatment cannot "cure" any addiction, including smoking addiction. 
  • Often, smoking rehab programs do not address the human body's psychological-energetic side, so success rates are usually relatively low.

The first task in the smoking rehab program is releasing the subconscious mind's initial and painful traumatic memories.

  • Achieving successful rehab from smoking addiction requires reconstruction of the past traumatic events that caused the energy blockage and created the need for smoking from the start. Traumatic memories are usually stored subconsciously (as part of the mental defense mechanisms). They are often challenging to retrieve (sometimes they involve memories of parents or family members who are no longer alive.) The rehab process requires releasing the trauma from the subconscious to the conscious, where one can be forgiven and let go of the painful memories. Trauma release does not require forgetting.
  • Most people are unable to reconstruct the traumatic events on their own. I needed dozens of sessions in a type of treatment that is not available worldwide, which is quite similar to hypnosis. It is hard to believe in retrospect that these were the events that, at the time, caused the severe liver disease I experienced.

 

Explaining why so many smokers fail to quit! (Smoking addiction.)

It is clear that smoking is not just a chemical addiction to nicotine but also profound.

The (unconventional) perception of the human body as a dual, physical, and energetic entity is essential to understanding addiction.

  • These principles come from traditional Indian medicine (Ayurveda) and traditional Chinese medicine. 
  • The Indian concept of qi's life energy in Chinese culture shows that the mouth, bronchial, and lungs are associated with the fifth and fourth centers. The emotions involved in these centers are mainly related to communication, love, and healing.
  • Smokers often start smoking at very young ages. Reconstructing the events that led to smoking will teach that environmental and social pressure reflects increased communication and attention mistakenly interpreted as love!
  • The leading cause of smoking in the first place is the energy blockage of the 5th and 4th Energy Centers. These blockages result from non-resolved traumatic events that pass through the mental self-defense mechanism into the subconscious.

Any addiction not only manifests itself in certain chemicals (such as nicotine) but also, and mainly as a psycho-energetic phenomenon. Releasing traumatic non-resolved issues from the past that caused the addiction is far more complicated than detoxification from the addictive substances.

 

What does it take to quit smoking?

  • All addictions, including smoking, allow the body to improve the energy flow in the specific blocked energetic center/s. (At the expense of extensive damage to many organs and systems.) Therefore, rehab from addiction should eliminate the primary factor that created the need for addiction. (That is, to open the life-force energy blockages.)
  • Chemical rehab from nicotine is a relatively easy part. The incredibly challenging part is the release of the life-force energy blocks.
  • Addiction to alcoholic beverages has very similar initial characteristics; rehab's energetic treatment should have similar properties.

The seven human Chakras (Energy Centers) and organs represent respective influential emotions. (The emotional settings I brought are slightly broader.)

General & Introduction -  The concept of energy centers. (Chakras)

Only Traumatic Non-resolved mental & spiritual events from our past may block the life-force energy. (Traumatic resolved mental & spiritual events do not block the energy centers.) 

  • These principles come from traditional Indian medicine (Ayurveda) and Chinese medicine, balancing the body. Western medicine completely ignores the human body's energetic being and misses an opportunity for a deep understanding of chronic disease formation.
  • Diseases break out where life-force energy does not flow smoothly.
  • When we talk about stress and anxiety as a major causes of chronic morbidity, we must deepen and label the traumatic emotions involved to release them consciously.

Short analysis concerning Smoking & Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. (COPD)

Smokers.

  • The initial relevant respiratory system organs are, according to this diagram, in centers 4-5. The possible corresponding traumatic emotions are Love, Relationships & self-acceptance, and Communication & self-expression.
  • Among heavy smokers over time, the centers that control the infections are also involved. (Centers 2-3.) These matching traumatic feelings are probably related to Sexuality and Pleasure, creativity, wisdom, Personal Power, and channel ability.
  • Note: Only the patient themself can interpret past traumatic events.

Non-Smokers. (Symptomatic.) 

  • Those who do not smoke and are not exposed to very polluted air probably have Life-force energy obstructions in centers 2,3,4.
  • The possible corresponding traumatic emotions are Sexuality and Pleasure, Creativity, Wisdom, Personal Power, and the ability to channel. Love, Relationships & self-acceptance.
  • The main difference between smokers and non-smokers lies in the fifth center associated with the communication.  

 

The smoking cessation strategies integrate Body, Mind& Spirit altogether. 

The events that caused smoking in the first place are usually buried deep in the subconscious, which stores unwanted memories, sometimes from the very distant past. The subconscious mind is part of the mental defense mechanism. Extracting events into the conscious realm allows them to be released. (No need to forget.)

Critical - Mental & Energetic. (If necessary, the two techniques can be combined.)

Releasing traumatic non-resolved events from the past - Through Self-psychoanalysis.

  • It requires self-hypnosis, yoga, and meditation at very high levels. 
  • Support groups sometimes have a meditative effect. (Depends on the facilitator and group participants.)

Releasing traumatic non-resolved events from the past -  Through experts.

  • Hypnosis (usually can pinpoint the source of the initial addiction and treat the problem to lower the chances of returning to smoking.
  • Acupuncture manages to cope differently, without poking around, but by opening the blocked meridians that affect the life-force energy causing the smoking addiction.

 

Desirable - Social and communicative. (It is advisable to combine social & mental-energetic activities.)

  • Social activity of any kind is vital. Detachment and remoteness may create isolation and depression.
  • Joining theater, acting, drama, poetry, and literature is especially recommended. Of course, this is a communication activity.
  • Loners - Finding a meaningful relationship with a love and sex partner can change a lot! (Communication, sex, and pleasure at the same time.)
    • A deep emotional relationship charges life-force energy and helps recovery.

 

Physical and pharmaceutical. 

  • Using nicotine patches or e-cigarettes as a substitute is not a long-term solution.

The active substance MDMA in Ecstasy drug. (Not yet approved for use.)

  • MDMA may help with additional supportive care in releasing traumatic events. Studies have shown an effect on three brain neurotransmitters. Reactions to the MDMA drug were increased pleasure, a reduction in the sense of fear, love, and acceptance of the environment, a decrease in criticism, and increased emotional openness.
  • MDMA treatment may be beneficial (if approved) not as a stand-alone treatment but as part of a supportive process for a smoking acute addiction.
  • I have to point out that I am usually against using drugs; this is an unusual case where a drug may treat the cause rather than the symptom. (MDMA is currently not approved for use.)

 

Which is the best strategy?

In addition to the physical rehab, a combination of the mental-energetic and social parts at the same time is most desirable.

  • It is important to emphasize that treating smoking addiction by chemical and pharmaceutical means without psycho-energetic and complementary social action has a low chance of success.
  • For those who have already had previous smoking withdrawal failures, I recommend contacting a qualified hypnosis specialist. It is essential to know that rehab is a process that combines body, mind, and spirit altogether.

 

Non-smokers' COPD's underlying causes. (Body, Mind & Spirit.)

Smoking is only the catalyst and trigger that contribute to further deterioration. 

  • My father died of complications of severe pulmonary edema, though he had never smoked. Smoking alone doesn't explain everything!

Pathogens as a cause of chronic disease outbreaks.

  • In chronic diseases, pathogens are not a cause of the disease but only catalysts and further deterioration. The fundamental cause is always a weak immune system.

Lifestyle vs. Genetics. 

  • Smoking is, of course, an essential catalyst in COPD formation, but more risk factors are usually added to it.
  • An unhealthy lifestyle (Mental & Physical)  is the leading cause of COPD. (80% or more). Genetics explains only a small part of the failures. (20% or less.)

Age factor (Unhealthy physical Lifestyle) vs. Traumatic non-resolved events from the past.

  • The age factor - As symptoms onset at a younger age (30 years or less), it is more likely that the weight of unresolved mental traumas is higher than the unhealthy Lifestyle. The explanation lies in the fact that the process of cell aging and death is cumulative, while unresolved traumatic events have an immediate and cumulative effect.

Physical Body.

  • An unhealthy Lifestyle reflected in Improper nutrition, high body toxicity, drinking alcoholic beverages, smoking, low physical activities, and exposure to the sun, lack of sleep, manifests itself in:
    • Weak flow of body fluids. (Blood, lymph, bile.)
    • Gut flora imbalance and parasite overgrowth create a heavy load on the immune system.

Mind & Spirit.

Happiness, Love, Satisfaction, and other positive emotions charge life-force energy.   

Anxiety, stress, disappointment, hate, fear, guilt, envy, and negative emotions deplete the life-force energy.

  • Traumatic Non-resolved mental & spiritual events from our past (usually subconscious) can cause low life-force energy flow. (Blockages in the flow of life-force energy have far-reaching physical and mental effects.)

The combined effect of body, mind, and spirit.

  • A long list of symptoms. (Physical & Mental.)

Prognosis.

  • Recovery occurs only when all the disease causes (mental & physical) are resolved and eliminated.
  • Symptomatic treatments usually cannot cure the patient, as they do not eliminate the disease's causes.

 

What is the additional factor needs consideration regarding t COPD?

  • The modern Lifestyle with processed foods, alcoholic beverages, and synthetic sugar beverages is primarily inflammatory.
  • If we add smoking, stress, little sleep, and irregular physical activity, COPD is almost inevitable.
  • Smoking is essentially inflammation. Phlegm, cough, and edema are the body's attempts to remove toxins. Combining an inflammatory body with a respiratory system contaminated with toxins creates a situation where the body directs the infections to the respiratory system's weakest energetic place. (Oral, bronchial, lung, and skin.)

 

 How to explain COPD among non-smokers?

  • Non-smokers, of course, do not have the smoking factor as a catalyst. In these cases, there is a mix of diet and Lifestyle with energetic blockages resulting from unresolved mental crises in the energy centers relevant to the respiratory system and the immune system.

 

Why doesn't drug treatment cure COPD?

The answer to this lies in that all COPD treatments are designed to treat symptoms rather than causes.

  • Steroids, bronchodilators, receptor blockers, antibiotics, etc., are inherently unable to cure; their ability to relieve the patient's suffering is limited.
  • The problem is that COPD is a progressive disease. The drugs themselves have severe side effects; they harm the immune system over extended periods. 

 

Every COPD patient can avoid this image of an oxygen balloon or a respirator. 

 

The first stage of recovery from COPD - How to start? 

Review the principles of self-healing - with an emphasis on former smokers and non-smokers. (After the patient has faced a complete or near-complete cessation of smoking. ) 

Link: How to get started with self-healing therapies?

Self-healing is a challenging process that often involves changes in diet and Lifestyle. The first stages of adaptation are the most difficult. Don't expect your attending physicians (they believe and know only the conventional methods), so support from your spouse, family, and friends is critical.

  • It would help if you adopted the available treatments & lifestyle changes that best suit your condition. However, a Balanced diet and liver & kidney cleansing are usually needed.
  • The benefits of adopting a self-healing lifestyle are immense; discipline and strong willpower are mainly required in the early stages.
  • If you followed self-healing principles for at least three months without a significant improvement in symptoms, it means that the more systemic inflammation, you need more time! And more intense treatments.
  • Urine Ph. of 6.0 or below usually indicates that the intestines are too acidic. It can suggest that gut flora is imbalanced!

If you seek doctors' advice about self-healing from COPD, you will most likely encounter reactions ranging from cancellation to contempt.

 

A partial list of recommended activities will improve the shortness of breath of COPD patients in the long run.

(In the meantime, it is advisable to use low-dose drugs and only in cases with a clear and immediate need.)

Mental.

  • Attending verbal communication workshops or activities. (Improves energy flow in the 5th energy center, the Throat Chakra.)
  • Practice Yoga, Meditation, and Tai Chi. As part of the process of mental empowerment. (Improves energy flow in the 6th energy center, the Third Eye Chakra.)

Physical.

Food & Beverages.

  • Start your morning by drinking one cup of squeezed lemon juice mixed with lukewarm water. (It is even better if you add one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar + one tablespoon of olive oil.)
  • High quality, varied, fresh, and natural food (without industrial or processed products.)
  • Eating berries with goat yogurt is highly recommended. (Probiotic Bacteria with Strong Antioxidants.)
  • Consuming dietary fiber (found in plant baes diet) and fermented products such as goat yogurt.
  • Natural oils/fat are essential for gut tissue lubrication and proper absorption.   
  • Regular eating of bone marrow (possible in soup) is especially recommended.

Supplements.

In general, it is advisable to avoid taking supplements. The best way is through proper and balanced nutrition.

  • If you do not eat deep water oily fish, you probably need omega-three supplements. (DHA/EPA)
  • Vitamin b12 is a great anti-inflammatory. (Simple blood test will reveal if you are deficient.)
  • Serrapeptase is an enzyme that is capable of decomposition of lung scar tissue.
    • Enzyme serrapeptase is the enzyme that breaks down the silkworm's cocoon - it breaks down dead cells without affecting living cells. Simultaneously, caution and testing are required as there are no side effects from taking this supplement. (Opinions about it are not uniform.)
  • Drinking a teaspoon of bentonite clay in a glass of lukewarm water will help toxin absorption and reduce emitted mucus. 

 

Liver & kidney cleansing.

COPD patients with severe symptoms may need cleansing of the liver and kidneys. The results of the cleaning can be felt after a relatively short time.

  • The cleansing of the liver and kidneys has a far-reaching impact on all inflammatory processes in the body, including the respiratory system.
    • Freshly squeezed juices.
    • Coffee enemas.
    • Liver & Gallbladder flush. 
    • Kidneys cleansing. (Such as Drinking Parsley tea, Steam Sauna, and Jacuzzi.)

Other available therapies. 

  • Controlled exposure to the sun has a significant impact on breathing quality.
  • Massage of the back and lungs may help remove the mucus to relieve respiration.
  • Swimming is a highly recommended aerobic exercise for strengthening both the lungs and heart.

Environmental.

  • It is advisable to avoid contact with allergens such as mold or dust mites, pollen, etc.
  • It is advisable to avoid wall-to-wall carpets. It is advisable for those who have carpets to do a thorough cleaning with steam, without chemicals.
  • In many places where air quality is not good (especially in cities), it is advisable to introduce air purifiers without various chemicals.
  • Environmentally friendly detergents should be used. Many detergents (such as window cleaners) are very harmful and worsen breathing problems.
  • Homes with mildew and mold must be treated urgently to remove moisture, and mold-caused infection, endangering COPD patients with a compromised immune system.

  

14 Things That Happen to Your Body When You Quit Smoking (Don't Avoid)

Detailed overview of each one of the self-healing principles to achieve full recovery from COPD.

Link: How to get started with self-healing therapies?

  1. Dealing with smoking cessation or drastic reduction. (Only for smokers, of course)
  2. Self-healing general principles & guidelines.
  3. Adapted to a self-healing lifestyle regarding smokers.
  4. Mental-energetic aspects of improving the vital energy function essential to recovery.
  5. Recommended Diet and Natural physical therapies.

Dealing with smoking cessation or drastic reduction. (Only for smokers, of course.)

  • I recommend using one of the two smoking withdrawal strategies listed in paragraph 2, which attempt to detect and counteract the need for smoking through subconscious mind penetration. 
  • I recommend thinking about a strategy (I learned in China) of smoking 2-5 cigarettes a day for those who have never quit smoking altogether. (Usually at regular times) and only on days when drinking natural squeezed juice. (Not ideal but far superior to the routine of heavy smoking.)

Self-healing general principles & guidelines.

Harnessing the extraordinary capabilities of Self-Healing.

Self-healing is like "Performing miracles." Every human being has this capability. It just needs to be revealed.

  • Our body, mind & spirit are reflections of each other.
  • The influence of our mind & spirit on our physical body is immense. 
  • I prefer to call it Complementary Alternative Medicine. (CAM) "Self-healing medicine."

The Holistic approach to self-healing.

  • The location of symptoms does not necessarily reveal the main problem.
  • A single organ or system cannot be cured apart of the rest of the body. The entire body's immune system has to recover as well.

The self-healing allegedly paradox - Few symptoms during the recovery period may be more severe, but other symptoms disappear!

  • Be aware that self-healing has ups and downs; it does not indicate that it does not work. The last stage might be the hardest because the immune system becomes more responsive. (Light fever and fatigue during the self-healing process are usually signs that recovery takes place.)

 

Adapted to a self-healing lifestyle regarding smokers.

  • Controlled exposure to the sun regularly. (Immense importance.)
  • Go out frequently to the free air; walking after the rain is especially recommended.
  • A home and office air freshener may help, especially with allergens.
  • Try to minimize your medication intake. (They all harm the immune system.)
  • Minimize exposure to toxins from all possible sources. (Such as toxins in food and beverages, detergents, drugs, various chemicals, and radiation).
  • Avoid or minimize all alcoholic beverages.
  • The frequency of sexual activity depends on age. Meaningless sex depletes energy. Sexual activity, combined with love, increases energy. (Happiness.)
  • Although you may feel healthy and not tired, seven hours of sleep at night is essential. Working night shifts continuously confuses the biological clock; it harms the Qi life force in the long run.
  • Physical activity is necessary for maintaining a good mood and proper physiological functioning.
    • Swimming is one of the best sports for COPD patients. (It is rather harsh in the beginning but highly beneficial) 
  • Try to avoid very crowded places for extended periods. They consume energy.

Eating habits.

  • Each morning on an empty stomach, squeeze one lemon and drink it mixed with lukewarm water. (You can add one tablespoon of apple cider vinegar.)
  • Try to minimize eating away from home, preferably take-home food, and not buy outside.
  • Chew well, take a break, eat comfortably, and do not eat late at night.
  • Intermittent fasting (not with zero calories) has many benefits.

 

Mental-energetic aspects of improving the vital energy function essential to recovery.

Links: Mental & spiritual enhancement.

Although these principles sound clear and logical, they are sometimes difficult to apply. It is recommended to use empowerment workshops or other professionals.

1 Happiness has a high impact on Qi life-force-energy.

  • Unfortunately, there is no sure recipe for joy, but you can take small steps, such as: 
  •  More free time is essential to gaining high levels of Qi.
  • If necessary, you should reduce your working hours – you will be surprised that your productivity will not be significantly lowered.

2 Find a suitable activity to free your mind and spirit, such as:

  • Tai Qi, Yoga, Meditation, Guided Imagery, Swimming!
  • Any exercise that helps release mental stress. (Preference is individual.)

3 Make peace with yourself, your environment, and your family.

  • You must do all you can to resolve all meaningful disputes. Hate, envy, anxiety, and shouting consume Qi's life-force energy.

4. Do not be disappointed with what you have achieved.

  • Be happy with what you have. Unfulfilled ambition is frustrating and depletes energy in the long run. Curb your ambition for a while. It will help you to regain lost strength.

5 Love and giving elevate life-force energy. (Qi)

  • By volunteering & assisting others, you gain satisfaction; it increases the life-force energy. (Qi)
  • Donations of money alone are not considered giving.  

6 Having a profound, deep belief. (With or without praying and worshiping the god.)

  • Deep belief is like meditation and promotes Qi energy. There are claims that the placebo effect results from this mechanism.

7 Having a good couple's relationship is essential to maintaining high Qi.

  • Love and understanding are crucial in recovery, while fighting and shouting deplete your Qi. Try to resolve marital issues. If you are having problems, seek professional advice.

8 The use of hypnosis. (Recommended)

  • The use of hypnosis may be perceived by many as unrelated to their illness, but the release of mental distress has far-reaching effects on the body. 

 

Recommended Diet and Natural physical therapies.

Link: Physical treatments & supplements - Summary table.

Detailed explanations of this chapter can be found in the links provided below each headline.

  1. Eating & drinking a large balanced variety of unprocessed food & beverages helps initiate the body's natural regeneration process.
    1. Much unprocessed natural food (preferably organic and not genetically modified) with all macronutrients and ingredients. Reduced quantities of animal protein, preferably grass-fed or organic range-free products. Much dietary fiber is mixed with natural oils & fats that enable an effective emulsification process. Fermented products with natural live bacteria are essential for good health.
    2. "The balanced diet" provides the body with all the nutrients required for maintaining a healthy body, supporting the regeneration & rejuvenation process, including the Pancreas beta cells & Brain neurogenesis.
    3. Intermittent fasting (not with zero calories) has many benefits.

    6. A balanced diet is the best diet for maintaining good health and optimal weight.
  2. Mechanical Detoxification. (By unblocking and cleansing the liver & kidneys.)
    1. The liver and kidneys fill a long list of critical metabolic processes. A burden on one creates a strain on the other, and therefore it is essential to address both. 
    2. Liver Flush dissolves the intra-hepatic stones and cleanses the liver. By unblocking the liver & kidneys, you can initiate the tissue regeneration & rejuvenation process. 
    3. Liver & Gallbladder flush + Cleansing the kidneys.
    4. Cleansing the kidneys. (Drinking parsley tea, Steam Sauna, Jacuzzi.)

    2. All types of massages have only benefits - No side effects.
    3. All massages Types, methods, and benefits.
  4. Controlled Solar-baths. (Essential for proper physiology and charges the life-force energy.)
    1. Controlled exposure to the sun has many unique benefits.
    2. Fear of contracting skin cancer and working indoors for many hours has created a situation where many people, even in sunny countries, are deficient in vitamin D.
    3. Solar baths - sun tanning.
  5. Acupuncture can restore the life-force energy flow and relieve pain.
    1. Acupuncture - Scientifically proven with excellent results and No side - effects. 
    2. Acupuncture – Balancing the life-force energy (Qi) flow.
  6. It uses mainly Herbal food supplements and antioxidants (as little as possible) to restore the body's balance and deficiencies.
    1. One should always prefer good quality food & beverages with a high nutritional value over supplements. However, one might need a few (though not many) carefully selected supplements during the recovery process.
    2. Food supplements, antioxidants & probiotics.

 

Summary, conclusions, and recommendations.

All addictions, including smoking, allow the body to improve the specific energetic center's blocked energy flow. Therefore, rehab from addiction should eliminate the primary factor that created the need for addiction. (That is, to open the life-force energy blockages.)

  • It is clear that smoking is not just a chemical addiction to nicotine but also profound.
  • Chemical rehab from nicotine is a relatively easy part. The incredibly challenging part is the release of the life-force energy blocks. 

The reward mechanism of addictions is not only chemical but primarily an energetic tool for conserving the critical life-force energy needed for survival.

  • Therefore, rehab from smoking addiction should eliminate the primary factor that created the need for addiction. (That is, to open the respective life-force energy blockages.)
  • Any addiction not only manifests itself in certain chemicals (such as nicotine) but also, and mainly as a psycho-energetic phenomenon. Releasing traumatic non-resolved issues from the past that caused the addiction is far more challenging than detoxification from the addictive substances.

COPD is not an incurable disease!

  • Reducing inflammatory processes in the body using self-healing methods without medication can help COPD patients ( including active smokers) reduce many annoying symptoms.

COPD underlying causes. (Lifestyle vs. Genetics.) 

  • My father died of complications of severe pulmonary edema, though he had never smoked. Smoking alone doesn't explain everything!
  • Smoking is, of course, an essential catalyst in COPD formation, but more risk factors are usually added to it.
  • An unhealthy lifestyle (Mental & Physical)  is the leading cause of COPD. (80% or more). Genetics explains only a small part of the failures. (20% or less.)
  • Recovery occurs only when all the disease causes (mental & physical) are resolved and eliminated.
  • Symptomatic treatments usually cannot cure the patient, as they do not eliminate the disease's causes.

Prolonged use of medications & Supplements. 

  • Steroids cannot cure the disease but only moderate the symptoms, so the aim is to minimize their use to the minimum possible.
  • Prolonged use of most drugs, especially non-herbal drugs, has side effects (sometimes intolerable) and cumulative damage to the body that comes out of balance.
  • The use of dietary supplements is often excessive and sometimes even harmful. A balanced and appropriate diet with naturally fermented products (or live probiotics) and controlled exposure to the sun are recommended to minimize dietary supplements for those who are not vegan.

Economic aspects.

  • The economic burden of doctors, drugs, and treatments is sometimes very high. (In my case, the expenditure was exceptionally high.)
  • Despite the significant spending on food and juices, the savings on medicines and doctors, not to mention the suffering and reduced quality of life, make the investment in self-healing exceptionally economical in the long run.

Self-healing is like "Performing miracles." Every human being has this capability. It just needs to be revealed.

For smokers who tried to quit and failed, I recommend an intermediate mode of drinking freshly squeezed juices with limited smoking.

Dear Ivanna Santino,
• The email you sent is very revealing, exciting, and challenging. I immediately reminded my father, who died of chronic edema, breathing difficulties were unbearable. The concern of your husband and children raises excellent hope for recovery because the self-healing processes are greatly enhanced by love and emotional support.
• It is advisable to internalize that smoking addiction at a very young age is due to unresolved mental trauma from your past. (In the article I gave more detailed indicators)
• I understand your need for smoking; smoking releases energetic barriers. Probably in your physical condition you have no choice at least for now, but keep on smoking, but much less!
• Since I have been in China for extended periods over the last 13 years, I have encountered many heavy smokers who try to quit without success.
• My closest friend (a Chinese woman) smokes, who has not been able to stop. Since I drink natural squeezed juice every day, I suggested that she smoke only on the days when she drinks natural squeezed juice. Smoking is limited to 2-3 cigarettes after meals. She also has to smoke a cigarette before bed. With this method, she smokes 5-10 cigarettes a day. She has been applying the technique for three years successfully. Sometimes when she wants to smoke, she also drinks fresh grapefruit juice. Recommend that you adopt a similar method right now.

My recommendations for you.
If you apply this method successfully, you will earn twice. Drink both freshly squeezed natural juice and reduce smoking to a quarter or less of the current amount.
• Because of lung weakness, balanced anti-inflammatory nutrition is essential. Recommend that you read and apply the balanced diet listed on the website.
• While there are herbs that can help you (I have a lot of experience from China), these are limited treatments with a relatively moderate effect. Conventional drug treatment in your condition may only make your situation worse. Antibiotic and steroid therapy may even worsen your health in the longer term.
• It is essential to be exposed to direct sun (currently, you may be cold), but when possible, you should sit in the sun with short clothing sunbathing in a controlled manner.
• Recommending you (if you have the financial ability) to take acupuncture treatments, they will significantly help you in immediate relief of the symptoms.
• After 2-3 months of self-healing therapy, you can try to move on to the next step. The next step also includes hypnosis to eliminate the compulsive need for smoking and can even start with coffee enemas twice a week. Coffee enemas significantly strengthen the liver that carries a considerable burden of removing the waste that the inflamed lungs produce.
• The articles on the sf-healing.com site contain a lot of information and are not difficult to read. Recommend that you read and understand more deeply the principles of self-healing. The support and love of the family and your husband is especially critical to the success of the process; they must accept and agree with the way you are going.

I wish you success on your new path, the road is not easy, but the benefits it brings are tremendous.

Best regards,

Harel Samuel

I'm 59 years old and female. I was diagnosed a couple of years ago with COPD and I was beyond scared! My lung function test indicated 49% capacity. After having had flu a year ago, the shortness of breath, coughing and chest pains continued even after being treated with antibiotics. I've been smoking two packs a day for 36 years. Being born without a sternum caused my ribs to be curled in just one inch away from my spine, resulting to underdeveloped lungs. At age 34 I had surgery and it was fixed. Unfortunately my smoking just caused more damage to my already under developed lungs. The problem was having is that I enjoy smoking and don't want to give up! Have tried twice before and nearly went crazy and don't want to go through that again. I saw the fear in my husband and children's eyes when I told them about my condition then they start to find solution on their own to help my condition.I am an 59 now who was diagnose COPD emphysema which I know was from my years of smoking. I started smoking in school when smoking was socially acceptable. I remember when smoking was permitted in hospitals. It was not known then how dangerous cigarettes were for us, and it seemed everybody smoked but i was able to get rid of my COPD lung condition through the help of total cure herbal foundation my husband bought, totalcureherbsfoundation .c om has the right herbal formula to help you get rid and repair any lung conditions and cure you totally with their natural organic herbs,it class products at affordable prices. Purchase these medicines and get the generic medicines delivered in USA, UK & Australia,I wish anybody who starts smoking at a young age would realize what will eventually happen to their bodies if they continue that vile habit throughout their life.
