Pulmonary emphysema is characterized by the destruction of the little sacks (bronchi) in the lungs. It reduces their size and makes them hard and inelastic. This causes stale air to accumulate inside of them. Symptoms are: breathing difficulty due to the hardening of the membrane which covers the lungs, coughing with phlegm and anxiety.Causes: Smoking, polluted air, a lack of some of the nutrients which are destroyed by smoking.


A place with clean air (the villages are a good place for the people with emphysema). Also take Omega-3, Vitamins C, A and E and B-Complex. Proteins are good to build up damaged tissue and therefore the intake of them is recommended.

Warning! Pulmonary emphysema could become serious if it is not attended to in time. Consult your physician.
