COPD Treatments: Nigella Sativa (Black Cumin) and Olive Leaf

COPD or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease is the fourth leading cause of death in the US. COPD results in an obstruction of the airways leading to the lungs. As a result, COPD causes severe shortness of breath (dyspnea). COPD is usually a disease that results from years of smoking.

This potentially fatal disease shows promising results with the use of a healthy diet and natural supplements.

 Man Cures COPD with Black Cumin, Mullein Tea with Manuka Honey

A man reported on The Daily Strength that he had good  success with mullein tea and black cumin.  He did use manuka honey for a sweetener and was pleased with the results.  He has combined all the right stuff and there is no reason why anyone could not have the same results.

How Would I Change the Remedy?

I would combine a few known herbs and drink the tea also.  First you want to take the black cumin oil prior to breakfast. So mix 1 teaspoon of Manuka honey with 1 teaspoon of the best black cumin oil you can buy. The best is from Mountain Rose Herbs.  They are more expensive, but they carry the best oil I have seen.

Then I would take 9 capsules of dried olive leaf daily.  You must divide this in 3 equal doses.  Olive leaf is also proven to help treat COPD as it is a natural anti-biotic.  Olive leaf capsules can be purchased at many suppliers, but you need the original and organic dried leaf.

I would drink the tea the man suggested in the afternoon and then before sleeping take another dose of black cumin with Manuka honey.  If Manuka honey is too expensive for you, then you must use a good quality raw honey.

Women Cures COPD with Diet and Exercise

One COPD sufferer named Julie says she eliminated her COPD symptoms by using an exercise bicycle outdoors. In addition to exercise, Julie changed her diet and added supplements like fish oil, CQ10 and olive leaf.

In addition to eliminating her COPD symptoms, Julie`s regime eliminated her depression symptoms as well. Julie also lost 13 pounds with her healthy diet. She attributes much of her success to regular exercise and soaking up the sun in the late afternoon. It is advisable to exercise in the early morning or late afternoon to avoid the sun`s most intense rays.
