Symptoms and Treatment of COPD

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is a term used to define progressive disorders of the lung that impede airflow and decrease its capacity. Emphysema and Chronic Bronchitis are the 2 main types of COPD prevalent globally. It has been estimated that 5% of all deaths that occurred in 2015 worldwide were caused by COPD.

Smoking or exposure to tobacco smoke is one of the primary reasons for COPD and until recently, it was an affliction affecting more men than women; however, the equation is fast changing due to higher smoking prevalence in both sexes, increase in pollution and other respiratory hazards.

Signs and Symptoms of COPD

The worrying part is that early signs of COPD are not conclusive and they don’t appear till significant damage has already occurred. The degenerative changes then progress and worsen over time, especially if the triggering factors are still persistent.

The typical symptoms include:

  1. Breathlessness on exertion
  2. Lingering cough
  3. Lack of energy, chronic fatigue
  4. Chest tightness
  5. Heavy breathing or wheezing
  6. Copious amount of mucus or phlegm production
  7. Increased Respiratory infections
  8. Unexplained weight loss
  9. Bluish appearance on lips or fingernail beds

You should seek medical advice if you experience any of these symptoms on a regular basis. COPD is difficult to reverse once it starts progressing and early COPD detection is vital for successful rehabilitation.  Spirometry is a simple test that measures lung function and can detect COPD in anyone with breathing problems.

Treatment Options for COPD

The first step in limiting COPD is to eliminate the triggering factors namely smoking, tobacco smoke exposure, occupational exposure to chemicals and other allergens. Conventional medicines offer COPD treatments that merely help to alleviate the symptoms and the options include:

  • Bronchodilators: Class of drugs that assist in breathing by relaxing the muscles of the bronchi and bronchioles.
  • Corticosteroids: Steroids that reduce inflammation of the airway passages
  • Antibiotics: Group of drugs that help fight microbial infections excluding viruses
  • Beta-agonists: Medicines that relax the muscles of the airways thereby facilitating easier breathing.
  • Oxygen therapy: Additional oxygen to assist breathing, perfuse organs, and enhance your quality of life

These classes of medication do provide relief; they are however, marred by numerous side effects making long time consumption counterproductive. Moreover, it has been documented that these drugs cannot cure COPD.

On the other hand, ongoing research on natural ingredients have reported that herbs, homeopathic constituents and other natural ingredients exhibit versatile properties that may help by not only improving lung function but also reduce flare-ups and increase breathing capacity.

A number of natural ingredients highlighted for use in improving the respiratory system include:

  • Eucalyptus oil
  • Ginseng
  • Echinacea purpurea
  • Ginger
  • Adhatoda vasica
  • Curcuma longa
  • Ephedra vulgaris
  • Asarum heterothropoides
  • Acorus gramineus soland
  • Lung Sarcodes
  • Homeopathic combinations like Calc phos, Ferrum phos, Kali Mur, Nat sulph, and Oleum
  • Vitamin D
  • N-Acetylcysteine (NAC)

This list is not exhaustive; it is only indicative of some of the many other herbs found in nature that have helped people over centuries to maintain healthy lifestyles.
