Last night, I massaged the chest and back of an 80-yr old male hospice senior in the bay area with apricot oil with essential oil of eucalyptus and lemon. Vitamin A deficiency is prevalent among those with lung disease. I instructed the caregiver to get sunshine in the morning and continue on healing massage in other parts of the body too especially the heart, feet, lungs, and liver area.

As we’ve mentioned above, holistic medicine is the practice of treating the body itself to treat the illness. For example, in treating a headache, a holistic method of treatment might be to try hydrotherapy, which involves water for pain relief. In the case of chronic lung diseases, a variety of natural remedies may be used to promote airway clearance and to reduce mucus such as:
- Lobelia– believed to stimulate the adrenal glands to release epinephrine, in effect, this relaxes the airways and allows for easier breathing.
- Osha root– has been used to relieve congestion and make breathing easier.
- Lungwort– known to reduce irritation and provide soothing qualities.
- Elecampane– used to relieve coughs.
- Oregano– known to benefit the respiratory tract, coughing reflex, and nasal passage airflow.
- Orange peel– provides support for the respiratory system by breaking down and expelling congestion.
- Chaparral– protects the body from harmful bacterial agents.
- Eucalyptus– strengthens the immune system against infection.
- Ginger– relieves congestion and improves circulation within the lungs.
- Rosemary– contains healing vitamins A and C, and minerals calcium, magnesium, iron, potassium, sodium and zinc and helps blood flow.
Remember, however, to always consult with your primary doctor or physician before adding any new natural remedies to your diet.
4. Natural Supplements
In the case of natural supplements for COPD, there are a variety of vitamins and nutrients used by the body to reduce inflammation within the airways as well as promote more natural breathing from within. Here are a few examples with their properties and benefits:
- NAC (N-Acetylcysteine) – a powerful antioxidant that has been shown to reduce inflammation, phlegm and cough, as well as thin mucus and ease expectoration.
- Vitamin D – a sun-derived vitamin that has been linked to better lung function tests.
- Bromelain – a chemical enzyme found in pineapple juice, believed to reduce inflammation and has shown in some studies to be an effective supplement for COPD relief.
