Treatment Options for Emphysema

Treatment for Emphysema

Conventional treatment has no cure for emphysema. However, there are many medications to relieve symptoms and assuage the damage.
  • Inhalers (bronchodilators) to open the airways, such as ipratropium (Atrovent), tiotropium (Spiriva), salmeterol (Serevent), formoterol (Foradil), or albuterol
  • Anti-inflammatory medications such as montelukast (Singulair) and roflimulast are sometimes used
At times, steroids may be prescribed by doctors to reduce lung inflammation. Also, antibiotics are also used when there is respiratory infection involved.

Oxygen therapy and pulmonary rehabilitation are other procedures which are used in this condition.

In some cases, surgery is advised to remove damaged tissue.

Quitting smoking, avoiding exposure to pollutants and irritants as well as exercise under supervision are the major lifestyle interventions vital to the management to the disease.

Complementary Natural Care

Natural treatment of Emphysema even with Homeopathy is not permitted in your region.

The damage to the air sacs and the obstruction of the bronchioles are the root causes of this condition. Natural Alternatives including Ayurveda and Homeopathy are believed to support the lungs in functioning optimally. No cure or treatment claim can be made in countries that do not support TCM, Ayurveda and Homeopathy.
