Help your body get some relief from respiratory problems with Breathe Better Now. Here are some lung issues you or a family member may have: COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease); ASTHMA; ALLERGY; COLD AND FLU.
Breathe Better Now contains vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and herbs as support factors to promote better breathing naturally. The alkaline formulation neutralizes toxins that rob the body of oxygen. This is so important when dealing with lung issues. These ingredients have been used for centuries in the East to promote better breathing. Our unique proprietary blend contains ingredients which have been studied for their anti-inflammatory properties.
Colds and flu are always going around. In ten years I think I have caught something twice and got rid of it on the first day. Here is what I do. Take IS-3 all year to boost my immune system, as soon as I catch something I take my IS-3 for the virus, my Terminator for bacteria, my Breathe Better now if I am stuffy, and my PH PLUS to detox the germs. I never get real bad, but when people I know do they take an expectorant in the morning and the Breath Better Now at night.
Many of our clients have used this product successfully. Sometimes just one cap really helps with a stuffy nose. I like to take it before bed if I am stuffed up. I have really bad breathing allergies and even some food allergies. Honestly, since I take my IS3 regularly and my Allergy Shield for my allergies I don’t seem to need it often. As you know, falling asleep when you are stuffed up is terrible!
Symptoms of COPD include cough, phlegm, shortness of breath, wheezing and less energy. Chronic inflammation and oxidative stress are features of COPD. Oxidative stress inactivates antiproteases, surfactants, membrane lipid oxidations, mucus hypersecration, and affects alveolar epithelial injury, the extracellular matrix and reduces apoptosis. None of these things are good. By supplying a range of antioxidants for the body to utilize we may help the body in neutralizing these factors. Some doctors and alternative care providers know that patients with COPD do better when taking NAC and magnesium. NAC boosts of glutathione.
We of course add even more ingredients to support people who have COPD. Doctors (MD; DO’s; and ND’s) have noted that the ingredient studies for use in patients with COPD show a reduction in phlegm and cough, thins mucus, and eases expectoration and may reduce the incidence of taking steroids.
In some cases of COPD antibiotics are called for and so perhaps taking Terminator would be helpful. As you can imagine repeated use of various antibiotics builds up resistance and can cause the bacteria to mutate. Trying natural remedies before antibiotic use in mild cases can be helpful.
COPD is different than asthma. It affects the distal airways. Inflammation affects bronchioles. Airway walls are infiltrated with macrophages and lymphocytes. With asthma, lymphocytes are different than those seen in COPD. There can be a structural narrowing caused by inflammation & possibly a loss of elastic recoil are present with advanced asthma. Some doctors who treat asthma patients do not feel allergy is a contributing factor. However allergic asthma is recognized by many doctors today. Patients with allergic asthma may have a zinc deficiency compared to patients with other types of asthma and may reduce symptoms in some with COPD. So this formulation includes the zinc. While some people with Asthma have seen relief with MSM +C and Allergy Shield, when that is not enough Breathe Better Now is a great product to try. Doctors know that Magnesium is a mineral that relaxes the bronchial tubes and can help with asthma. The Chinese have used Gingko for centuries for this condition.
If we can control Asthma & reduce the symptoms of COPD, then maybe less steroids are required. The less steroids we take the better off we can be. Long term steroid use is not recommended.
We suggest that people with any type of condition involving the lungs never smoke. We actually don’t think smoking is good for anybody. Reducing exposure to cigarette smoke and pollution is very helpful. There are machines available that help keep the air in your home clean and there are certain indoor plants that help with that as well. Outside watch burning wood or biofuels. This can be irritating. Also if you live near a high traffic area you could be affected. If you have been a smoker or have been exposed to any of these toxins, I 3C with DIM and PH PLUS will help with the toxic loads.
Diet plays a role in most disease and these diseases are no exception. So eating a healthy diet is very important including the reduction or elimination of nitrates (cured meats), corn syrup, food that is not organic, acid forming foods such as black pepper, sugars, artificial sugars, fried food and a list (we can send this to you) of food. Eating foods like organic fruits and veggies, high in ORAC, Antioxidant & Xanthones is great. Fermented, organic soy products may be helpful.
Exercise that is equivalent to your level of ability as prescribed by your health care practitioner can be very helpful. For some people acupuncture and other natural modalities are good to try.
Suggested Adult Use: Take 1 – 4 capsules as needed. Take with 8 oz. water and pH Plus.
We also suggest that you take with 1 -2 caps of Vitamin D Ultra, formulated to be as bioavailable as possible. EFA Plus is a welcome addition to any protocol for supporting people with lung issues.
Always check with your medical practitioner before taking this or any other supplement to be sure you are not taking anything that would be contraindicated for the ingredients listed in this formulation.
