chronic obstructive pulmonary disease program


If you have COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) or emphysema and have frequent infections or persistent respiratory symptoms and standard inhalers or medication has not helped much then we provide a unique 2 year program of COPD treatment and management of its symptoms

We use a very unique method of treatment approach understanding patients own genetic makeup or Prakruti using the ayurvedic method approach and incorporating the ayurvedic herbal treatment and integrating the use the current inhalers or nebulizer or other medication needed to make the drugs more efficient.  Thereby gradually decreasing the need of the dose of the medication and preventing recurrent exacerbation of the COPD symptoms.

The approach includes individualized approach of understanding of the COPD and its severity with associated other disease process like heart disease, diabetes, etc., integrate this understanding with the ayurvedic medical diagnosis and its treatment options; thereby optimizing the use of two different medical systems with different treatment benefit to overall benefit the patient.

The goal at the end of 2 year program is to

  • decrease the exacerbation of the COPD
  • improve cough, shortness of breath, wheezing and nighttime symptoms
  • decrease the use of inhalers and nebulizer gradually if the person’s body responds
  • Improve fatigue symptoms and energy level
  • Improve digestion, heartburn, constipation, abdominal discomfort and gas
  • decrease ER visits, hospitalization and overall long-term healthcare cost if possible
  • Specialized education for that unique individual patient to understand his/her own genetics based on ayurveda and how it can help in the long run and improve the health

As we spend a lot of time with one patient and it is individualized one-on-one treatment we have limited enrollment each year.  We want to enroll the patients who are compliant in medical treatment and not just who can pay the fee for the program.

Our approach is based on taking the best of Eastern and Western medical science, namely, allopathic medicine and ayurvedic medicine to benefit our patient. We have seen this approach is better than either of one use.
