Gettysburg Lung Center, PC provides unique treatment options for patients with lung and sleep disorders. We provide an option of treatment for pulmonary and sleep diseases with integration of Ayurveda, yoga, pranayama, and individualized treatment on a case-by-case basis. This is based on Ayurveda about ones own Prakruti (genetics of the person) and Vikruti (toxin build up and balance of energy flow), and integrating the use of modern medical science with Ayurveda for further optimization of health instead of just using one medical system of either allopathy or Ayurveda. By a combination of both, we have noted an improvement in the patient’s health overall.

Our business focus is to provide individualized treatment on a one-on-one basis for patients with bronchial asthma, COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease), emphysema, CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome), fibromyalgia, and insomnia. We provide a goal-oriented program with unique educational aspects, which is based on the person’s body type or genetics, lifestyle changes one needs, selection of foods and dietary modification. We provide a unique holistic approach for overall optimization of the body and mind on an individual basis.

Our goal is to provide the patient with an option of regular medical care or integrative medical care based on the patient’s choice. We provide both treatment options, but we have seen that integrative medical treatment options in the long run work better, decreasing side effects of medications, need of medication doses, and decrease in the need of inhalers, nebulizers and oxygen in patients with lung disorders. Our long-term goals for the asthma program and copd program are to decrease exacerbation of underlying symptoms, decrease emergency room visits and/or hospitalization and overall decrease healthcare costs by understanding one’s own unique body type and balance and energy one has based on Ayurveda. Generally, it takes one to two years for the changes in the body to happen. So, we have created a bronchial asthma care program and COPD/emphysema care program. It is a unique and clinically monitored program on a one-on-one basis with a regular follow up and education sessions.
