Primary Condition 1: COPD, Shortness of Breath, Phlegm, Tight Chest (Lungs)

Comments: Specialized herbal formulas will strengthen the structure and function of the lungs to promote regrowth of lung tissue. A stronger herbal formula is recommended for severe forms of COPD in which the patient is using oxygen. This patient has other health complications that will slow down recovery of their lung conditions, so we recommend doing the GI treatment while using this lung treatment.

Secondary Condition 1: Acid Reflux, Poor Digestion, Gas, Hiccups, Stomach Pain, Abdominal Pain (GI Tract)

Acid reflux can be due to a cold stomach, which consists of poor blood supply and contraction of the stomach. Acid reflux may have burned the esophagus, causing shortness of breath. Weakness of the small and large intestines can result in poor digestion.

The herbal capsules will warm up the middle jiao (upper GI tract) to increase blood supply to the stomach and other liquid herbal formulas will repair degeneration in the upper GI tract and improve digestion.

Herbal capsules will improve small intestine function to help resolve poor digestion and other herbal capsules will increase contraction in the lower GI tract to eliminate constipation.


Treatment: November, 2011, chronic productive cough (thick grey phlegm), exhaustion, fatigue, shortness of breath, difficulty breathing, weakness, acid reflux, poor digestion, abdominal cramps, & stomach pain, swollen ankles for years, difficulty walking 1-2 blocks, needed sleep in the afternoon, restricted social life.
