Natural Strategies for Preventing and Treating COPD and Asthma

Most of us are fortunate enough to take breathing for granted, but millions of people struggle to breathe because of chronic respiratory problems.  COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder) actually describes chronic bronchitis, emphysema, severe bronchiectasis, and asthma.  These diseases generally involve blockage in the air passages, bronchial muscle spasms, inflammation of the mucus membranes, deterioration of the lung tissue, and increased mucus production.  In this article, we'll explain how diet, herbs and other natural methods can help people with COPD and asthma to breathe freely again.

In this webinar we show you how to work on the real causes of most common thyroid problems using natural remedies.

Effective Healing Strategies for Chronic Illness

You can practice "cookbook" alternative healing, which is to simply mimic the medical approach, substituting natural remedies for drugs to try to treat the disease, or you can use a genuinely holistic approach, which means looking beyond the disease to understand why the person is sick. When you do this the strategy for healing is based on the person, not the disease. This class will help you learn how to do this.
