But deaths to which COPD contribute are many millions in the West, says Robert Redfern
The role of the lungs is to extract what oxygen remains for us. I say remains because 500 years ago we had nearly twice as much oxygen, mainly because we had 6 billion more acres of trees which we’ve now cut down. Trees recycle the carbon Co2, giving us back oxygen.
Aside from the drop in oxygen levels in the atmosphere, we have two major problems:
- Most of us aren’t breathing properly due to our stressed/ sedentary lifestyle, which causes reverse breathing. Damage to the lining of the lungs by pollution, smoke, junk food and the worst culprit, bread! Yes, bread: white bread, brown bread, wholemeal bread and even organic whole grain bread. White breads are particularly noted for their negative effects on health. It’s amazing they do not come with a government warning like cigarettes. Insufficient fresh vegetables and fruits, depleting our nutrients and enzyme reserves.
The net result of these factors is that the lungs are subject to fungal and yeast overgrowth, which leads to chronic inflammation of the lining of the lungs and subsequent degeneration.
This results in even worse oxygen absorption. Consequent inadequate breathing compounds it. The medical monopoly then gets involved and fills the person full of drugs. From here on it is a very slippery slope. I watched this happen to my mother who died in her early 60s from COPD, which prompted me to research the causes. Is it too late once ‘big pharma’ has you in its grasp? Thankfully, no. The good news is that for most people it is relatively easy to recover from lung disease.
Here are two extremes:
- In 2006, Mike Tawse was confined to his wheelchair and his friends were planning his funeral. His lungs and, as a consequence, his heart was rapidly coming to a full stop. All the doctors could do was to add another drug to a total of 14. Luckily for him he was introduced to the plan from my book. Within weeks he was recovering and now 2 years later he is off all drugs, going to the gym 3 times a week and can see properly for the first time in his 38 years of life. He still has Cerebral Palsy but now he has a life. He carried out my plan to the letter and made most of the diet changes.
Compare that to Margaret’s father with asbestosis. She contacted me and was very anxious for his limited life, sitting in his chair, strapped to an oxygen mask. The doctors had told her that such a condition is terminal and he could only get worse. Unfortunately, like many men, he would not consider the diet change but she did persuade him to accept one step of the plan – supplementing with Serrapeptase. “Occasionally he took two steps,” says Margaret. “Nevertheless, he discarded his oxygen mask and enjoyed getting about, going to the shops and chatting to all his friends. He was sufficiently satisfied with that and that it would extend his life… and it did.”
