COPD
(Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease)

We have been treating Patient’s who suffer from COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease) at Poseidonia Healthcare by combining several different innovative therapies to heal this debilitating condition and allow your body to repair and heal the damage caused by COPD.

Completed studies have shown the ability to quantify the effects of stem cell therapy. According to the report produced by the Lung Institute “Stem Cell Therapy and its Effects on COPD”, over 82% of patients that attempted Stem Cell treatment had noticeable improvements in their quality of life after their therapies. Many of these patients reported increased lung capacity and the ability to walk following transfusion. These reports have positioned stem cells as one of the best viable options for current patients with COPD. While stem cell treatment has not shown the ability to cure COPD, its ability to repair damaged tissue and relatively invasive nature makes it an attractive alternative to patients. This path becomes even more desirable when considering the current treatment protocols requiring the use of ventilators or even total lung transplants, which are rare and extremely expensive.

By blending together, a variety of different treatments such as Stem Cell Therapy, Ozone Therapy & Bio-Resonance Therapy we can treat all aspects of COPD. Poseidonia Healthcare has the advantage of having many different therapies under one roof so we can cover all aspects of healing this disease and repairing the damage that has already been done.

By offering a combination of treatments we allow the body all the tools it needs to reduce the symptoms of COPD and give you your life back.

We can administer Stem Cell therapy,  combining it with the detoxifying power of Ozone IV Therapy, then add in Bio-Resonance treatment to allow your respiratory system to rejuvenate and giving you a better quality of life.

COPD means that your lungs are struggling to get all the oxygen that you need, and this can lead to shortness of breath, lack of energy and tightness in your chest. Our unique Stem Cells Therapy can repair this damage and the EBOO Ozone Therapy can allow more oxygen into your bloodstream while the repair is being completed.

Once our Medical team have the full details of your condition they will assess your personal signs and symptoms, this will then allow them to design a treatment package that is best for you.

Poseidonia Healthcare makes sure you are comfortable and well looked after during your treatment.

COPD Is A Lung & Airways Disease

With Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease the airways are restricted, making it difficult to breathe.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a life-threatening lung disease in which the airways are restricted, making it difficult to breathe. It affects up to one in ten adults of the European population and 32 million people die of COPD in the world, every year.

COPD Causes Wheezing

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease causes shortness of breath, chest tightness and other sypmtoms.

Without intervention, the total number of deaths from COPD is projected to increase by more than 30 per cent in the next decade.

COPD Is Often Misdiagnosed

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is often misdiagnosed and confused with asthma.

COPD Is Mainly Caused By Smoking

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is mainly caused by smoking, but long term exposure to other irritants may also contribute to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. E.g. Outdoor air pollution and passive smoking.

What is COPD

(COPD) Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that gets worse over time, making it difficult to breathe. There are two main forms of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease are Chronic bronchitis, which involves a long-term cough with mucus and Emphysema, which involves damage to the lungs over time.

According to the WHO The World Health Organisation 65 million people have moderate to severe Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease. More than 3 million people died from Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease in 2005, which corresponds to 5% of all deaths globally. Most of the information available on COPD prevalence, morbidity and mortality comes from high-income countries. Even in those countries, accurate epidemiologic data on Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease are difficult and expensive to collect. It is known that almost 90% of COPD deaths occur in low- and middle-income countries.

At one time, COPD was more common in men, but because of increased tobacco use among women in high-income countries and the higher risk of exposure to indoor air pollution (such as biomass fuel used for cooking and heating) in low-income countries, the disease now affects men and women almost equally.

In 2002 Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease was the fifth leading cause of death. Total deaths are projected to increase by more than 30% in the next 10 years unless urgent action is taken to reduce the underlying risk factors, especially tobacco use. Estimates show that COPD will become the third leading cause of death worldwide by 2030.

COPD Overview

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease COPD is a chronic inflammatory lung disease that causes obstructed airflow from the lungs. Symptoms include breathing difficulty, cough, mucus (sputum) production and wheezing. It’s caused by long-term exposure to irritating gases or particulate matter, most often from cigarette smoke. People with COPD are at increased risk of developing heart disease, lung cancer and a variety of other conditions.

Emphysema and Chronic Bronchitis are the two most common conditions that contribute to COPD.

Chronic bronchitis is inflammation of the lining of the bronchial tubes, which carry air to and from the air sacs (alveoli) of the lungs. It’s characterised by a daily cough and mucus (sputum) production.

Emphysema is a condition in which the alveoli at the end of the smallest air passages (bronchioles) of the lungs are destroyed as a result of damaging exposure to cigarette smoke and other irritating gases and particulate matter.

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is treatable. With proper management, most people with COPD can achieve good symptom control and quality of life, as well as reduced risk of other associated conditions.

You’re more likely to get Lyme disease if you live or spend time in grassy and heavily wooded areas where ticks carrying Lyme disease thrive. It’s important to take common-sense precautions in tick-infested areas.

Symptoms Of COPD

Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease symptoms often don’t appear until significant lung damage has occurred, and they usually worsen over time, particularly if smoking exposure continues. For chronic bronchitis, the main symptom is a daily cough and mucus (sputum) production at least three months a year for two consecutive years.

Other signs and symptoms of COPD may include:

  • Shortness of breath, especially during physical activities
  • Wheezing
  • Chest tightness
  • Having to clear your throat first thing in the morning, due to excess mucus in your lungs
  • A chronic cough that may produce mucus (sputum) that may be clear, white, yellow or greenish
  • Blueness of the lips or fingernail beds (cyanosis)
  • Frequent respiratory infections
  • Lack of energy
  • Unintended weight loss (in later stages)
  • Swelling in ankles, feet or legs

People with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease are also likely to experience episodes called exacerbations, during which their symptoms become worse than usual day-to-day variation and persist for at least several days.

Causes of COPD are numerous, but for many onset cases of COPD, the patient may not display indications. As the disease progresses, signs and complications start become much more articulated. The most commons signs & indications for COPD diagnosis are:

  1. “Smokers Cough” which is another name for a persistent cough or coughing that produces a lot of excess mucus
  2. Labored Breathing: Especially occurs during physical stress such as playing sports or climbing stairs
  3. Strange sounds while breathing: A dry, squeaky, whistling or wheezing sound when exhaling can indicate early stage COPD
  4. Frequent tightness in the chest area is an early warning sign of chronic inflammatory COPD
  5. A persistent cough occurs primarily in the morning due to airway inflammation or being blocked with thick viscous mucus

Although many COPD patients notice such complaints, they do not take them very seriously. Coughing is usually the first symptom but initially not noticed or very alarming for most. People who are not very physically active may only recognize COPD when it has reached an advanced stage where breathing is difficult even at times of rest. Researchers have also found that many heavy smokers may already have COPD but might not feel any manifestations until it’s confirmed with a lung function test. Having COPD can also damage your bodies defense mechanisms resulting in frequent colds or other respiratory-related infections influenza.

 Advanced Signs of COPD

The severity of patients indications depends entirely on how much lung damage a person has. Patients who keep smoking will cause (lung fibrosis) and damage to the lung tissue much faster than those who stopped smoking. Intractable signs of end-stage COPD may cause swelling in the feet area, ankles, legs, and result in rapid weight loss reduction in overall muscle endurance that can result in injuries to the hips & knees.

The disease develops slowly. But there are always phases in which the signs suddenly worsen, especially for patients of COPD with acute exacerbation’s. The trigger is then usually a respiratory tract infection, and these exacerbation’s significantly accelerate the progression of chronic inflammatory COPD. Over time, COPD exacerbation’s become increasing, and reduction in lung capacity/lung function can also increase the risk of other diseases such as Rheumatoid ArthritisParkinson’s, ataxia, and brain strokes.

Causes Of COPD

The main cause of Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease in developed countries is tobacco smoking. In the developing world, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease often occurs in people exposed to fumes from burning fuel for cooking and heating in poorly ventilated homes.

Only about 20 to 30 percent of chronic smokers may develop clinically apparent Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, although many smokers with long smoking histories may develop reduced lung function. Some smokers develop less common lung conditions. They may be misdiagnosed as having COPD until a more thorough evaluation is performed.

How your lungs are affected

Air travels down your windpipe (trachea) and into your lungs through two large tubes (bronchi). Inside your lungs, these tubes divide many times like the branches of a tree into many smaller tubes (bronchioles) that end in clusters of tiny air sacs (alveoli).

The air sacs have very thin walls full of tiny blood vessels (capillaries). The oxygen in the air you inhale passes into these blood vessels and enters your bloodstream. At the same time, carbon dioxide, a gas that is a waste product of metabolism is exhaled.

Your lungs rely on the natural elasticity of the bronchial tubes and air sacs to force air out of your body. COPD causes them to lose their elasticity and over expand, which leaves some air trapped in your lungs when you exhale.

Causes of airway obstruction

Causes of airway obstruction include:

  • Emphysema. This lung disease causes destruction of the fragile walls and elastic fibers of the alveoli. Small airways collapse when you exhale, impairing airflow out of your lungs.
  • Chronic bronchitis. In this condition, your bronchial tubes become inflamed and narrowed and your lungs produce more mucus, which can further block the narrowed tubes. You develop a chronic cough trying to clear your airways.
Cigarette smoke and other irritants

In the vast majority of cases, the lung damage that leads to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease is caused by long-term cigarette smoking. But there are likely other factors at play in the development of COPD, such as a genetic susceptibility to the disease, because only about 20 to 30 percent of smokers may develop the condition.

Other irritants can cause COPD, including cigar smoke, secondhand smoke, pipe smoke, air pollution and workplace exposure to dust, smoke or fumes.

Alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency

In about 1 percent of people with COPD, the disease results from a genetic disorder that causes low levels of a protein called alpha-1-antitrypsin. Alpha-1-antitrypsin (AAt) is made in the liver and secreted into the bloodstream to help protect the lungs. Alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency can affect the liver as well as the lungs. Damage to the lung can occur in infants and children, not only adults with long smoking histories.

For adults with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease related to AAt deficiency, treatment options include those used for people with more-common types of COPD. In addition, some people can be treated by replacing the missing AAt protein, which may prevent further damage to the lungs.

Diagnosis for COPD

To diagnose your condition, your doctor will review your signs and symptoms, discuss your family and medical history, and discuss any exposure you’ve had to lung irritants especially cigarette smoke. Your doctor may order several tests to diagnose your condition.

Tests may include:

  • Lung (pulmonary) function tests. Pulmonary function tests measure the amount of air you can inhale and exhale, and if your lungs are delivering enough oxygen to your blood.Spirometry is the most common lung function test. During this test, you’ll be asked to blow into a large tube connected to a small machine called a spirometer. This machine measures how much air your lungs can hold and how fast you can blow the air out of your lungs.Spirometry can detect COPD even before you have symptoms of the disease. It can also be used to track the progression of disease and to monitor how well treatment is working. Spirometry often includes measurement of the effect of bronchodilator administration. Other lung function tests include measurement of lung volumes, diffusing capacity and pulse oximetry.
  • Chest X-ray. A chest X-ray can show emphysema, one of the main causes of COPD. An X-ray can also rule out other lung problems or heart failure.
  • CT scan. A CT scan of your lungs can help detect emphysema and help determine if you might benefit from surgery for COPDCT scans can also be used to screen for lung cancer.
  • Arterial blood gas analysis. This blood test measures how well your lungs are bringing oxygen into your blood and removing carbon dioxide

COPD is a chronic lung disease that gets worse over time. It’s sometimes called emphysema or chronic bronchitis. COPD is the third leading cause of death by disease in the United States with more than 15.3 million people suffering from it. It is known to cause serious long-term disability and early death.

However, there is hope! It is now understood that most forms of COPD/ emphysema result from accelerated ageing, a pathological mechanism also involved in various chronic disease. Genes associated with inflammation are upregulated in COPD sufferers while genes associated with tissue repair are down regulated. The leucocyte telomere lengths, one of the main ageing markers, are also much lower than average for COPD patients and their lung fibroblasts have impaired ability to restructure collagen.

Treatments For COPD
  • Personalised cleanse treatments which may include ozone therapy and chelation therapy following the ACAM protocol (American College of Alternative Medicine) to remove toxins, especially the heavy metals for past smokers.
  • Peptides to assist the collagen structure rebuilding. The peptide GHK is used everyday to assist the embryonic stem cell’s work 2. Other peptides are added depending on the need.
  • 20 million Embryonic Stem Cells by IV, 6 times per week for 4-5 weeks.
  • Here at Poseidonia Healthcare we offer a range of treatments for Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, here are a few benefits of the more popular treatments:
Stem Cells Therapy

Pluripotent Stem Cells are known to elongate the telomeres and they repair skin fibroblasts as established in our rejuvenation studies. This is why patients who suffer from COPD are able to reverse some or all of their symptoms with the Pluripotent Stem Cell treatment that we offer in combination with specific peptides such as GHK peptide.

During the first week of the treatment, patients notice increased energy, increased capacity to walk. By the end of the 4th week of treatment, most of the COPD patients have significantly better breathing and capacity of movement. Their family also notice changes in their mood, in their desire to plan ahead and live as their impairment lessens. Progress will depend on how severe the condition is as well as whether other organs have degenerated or not. Each condition is reviewed at the beginning of the treatment and programs are adapted to the needs of each patient. A minimum of 4 weeks is usually recommended in order to see significant changes in the patient’s condition.

COPD
Other Risk Factors

Almost 3 billion people worldwide use biomass and coal as their main source of energy for cooking, heating, and other household needs. In these communities, indoor air pollution is responsible for a greater fraction of COPD risk than smoking or outdoor air pollution.

Biomass fuels used by women for cooking account for the high prevalence of COPD among nonsmoking women in parts of the Middle East, Africa and Asia. Indoor air pollution resulting from the burning of wood and other biomass fuels is estimated to kill two million women and children each year.
