The human respiratory system is like a machine that works in a complex manner to keep us breathing. The air sacs are delicate, and the site of gaseous exchange, i.e., exchange of deoxygenated blood with oxygenated blood takes place here. Emphysema is a chronic lung condition in which the alveoli/ air sacs are damaged, collapsed, narrowed, stretched or overinflated. It is a part of a group of lung diseases called COPD or Chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder. Over a period, the inner walls of the air sacs weaken and rupture leading to the formation of large air spaces. This results in the reduced surface area of lungs. The stale air becomes trapped when one exhales leaving no space for fresh air to enter. As a result, irreversible damage is done to the air sacs. Only the patients suffering from this condition will be able to know the amount of discomfort that they go through!

 Let’s Have A Look At Some Of The Common Symptoms Experienced By Patients Of Emphysema:

  • Cough
  • Fast breathing
  • Wheezing
  • Shortness of breath ( gets worse with increased physical activity)
  • Increases sputum production
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Fatigue
  • Weight loss
  • Heart problems and sleep problems
  • Over-inflammation of the lungs

Complications are always a downside to any health condition. Likewise, there can be a few complications of emphysema too. Pneumothorax or collapsed lung is a condition which can be seriously life-threatening in people with emphysema. Emphysema puts an added pressure on the arteries that connect the heart and lungs. This can give rise to a condition called cor pulmonale which weakens a section of the heart.  Due to emphysema, the lungs develop empty spaces called bullae. They reduce the space available for the lungs to expand as single bullae can be as large as half the lung.

There can be many causes of emphysema-like tobacco and marijuana smoke, air pollution and chemical fumes and dust.  The rising levels of air pollution in major cities of the world are also increasing the incidents of emphysema. In some of the cases, it can also be caused by the inherited deficiency of a protein called alpha-1-antitrypsin which protects the elastic structure of lungs.

Some Of The Risk Factors Highlighted In Many Studies Are Stated Below:

  • Smoking and exposure to second-hand smoke- Smokers, as well as passive smokers who inhale from someone else’s smoke, are also at a higher risk of developing emphysema.
  • Age- the symptoms of most of the tobacco-related emphysema are seen between the ages of 40-60 years of age.
  • Fumes of certain chemicals or dust from cotton, wood, grains and mining products can increase the risk of emphysema.
  • Breathing pollutants like car exhaust can also cause emphysema.

Diagnoses Of Emphysema

It is extremely important to diagnose emphysema on time, and it can be done by some tests along with medical history/ physical exam. Some of the common tests are as follows:

  • Blood tests
  • Chest X-ray
  • Peak flow monitoring
  • CT scan
  • Spirometry
  • ECG
  • Sputum culture

Prevention Of Emphysema

Since there is no way to repair or grow the damaged tissue, the primary goal of emphysema treatment is to prevent the symptoms and control the symptoms so that the disease does not get worse.

  • Avoiding the smoke of others and staying away from air pollutants.
  • Antibiotics in case of bacterial infections like acute bronchitis and pneumonia
  • Lung transplant
  • Vaccinations for flu and pneumococcal infections
  • Pulmonary rehab program that includes breathing exercises
  • Quitting smoking
  • Surgery to remove the damaged part of the lung
  • Better nutrition for malnutrition and weight loss due to the disease
  • Bronchodilators to relieve a cough, shortness of breath and other breathing problems

Curcumin Can Treat Emphysema

Well, on the flip side there is a ray of hope for the patients with emphysema. Mother Nature does provide a solution for all the problems. Never be disheartened! You will be amazed to see the multi-benefits of curcumin that can produce promising results while treating emphysema.

  • Curcumin is very well-known for its anti-inflammatory properties it significantly reduces the inflammation and relieves the constriction of the airway.
  • Cigarette smoke contains free radicals which are the cause of oxidative damage. Curcumin and turmerone can prevent the loss due to oxidative stress.
  • Over a period, the patients of COPD develop resistance to the prescribed steroids. Curcumin can reverse this resistance.
  • At times, the damage to the tissues in case of emphysema can also turn to cancer. Since curcumin and turmerone both have anti-cancer properties, they prevent the progression of lung cancer.
  • In case, there is a secondary respiratory infection like Streptococcus pneumonia, Haemophilus influenza, etc., curcumin can inhibit the growth of these bacteria.

Clinical Trial & Our Product

Since health care & medicine is an industry, formulations are controlled through intellectual property rights denying easy access to common people and maintaining the buoyancy for the interest holders. Formula’s can be patented and that covers business interests that drive innovations these days.

So instead of conducting trials on the raw root, almost all companies promote clinically tested formulations of extracts to make it appear better then how the phytochemical was in its original state. Its like extracting an important organ from the body and then putting it on support system, expecting it to perform better in insolation then how it could perform when in it was in its natural form. The truth is, that the best way to consume a plant based medicine is in its raw form. Curcumin is one of the active ingredients in the root Curcuma Longa.

Since its more important to know what your food ate then what you ate, its important to know that the supplements you are using based on curcumin has curcumin from a gene modified variety of curcuma longa which suffers from an imbalance of every other mineral. You see a plant also behaves how a human body behaves when it is injected with steroids to gain muscle mass for body building purpose. The plants have higher levels of curcumin but all other secondary minerals found along curcumin in the plant get compromised as the plant can not feed all nutritions equally when it is designed to feed most of its nutrition towards developing higher levels of curcumin. It has severe side effects on the health of the plant and apparently on the people consuming such plants or extracts coming from these plants. However marketing and promotions have evolved to divert attention very wisely.

An extract of any herb can never be stored in its original state and hence needs base agents, preservatives which hardly leave it how it must be. We believe that access to medicine and healthcare is a basic right of every human and animal living on planet earth. Hence we do not first extract and then add preservatives or agents like pepperine to make the extract bio-available. This is the reason we never patent any of our products. We instead hand process the whole root we cultivate in our farms and share it with the people under different brand names for different health conditions based on the concentration of minerals present at testing. You can also buy the seed from us and cultivate it but it will certainly not be as potent as you get from us.

How potent is the active ingredient in the plant depends on the quality of seed, soil, water and environment. Our products work far better then most of the curcumin based supplements globally being used for Therapeutic benefits.

We do not intend to formulate or patent our products. So instead of choosing a supplement with an extract, choose wisely and go for the best and not the Cheapest.

All our products are cultivated, harvested, hand processed and distributed directly from our own farms to ensure that people who depend on our products for their acute and chronic problems get consistent supply of highest quality, ultra premium, medicinal grade, Non-GMO, Indigenous, Naturally enriched with curcumin, Wild Strand curcuma longa powder for therapeutic benefits. We cultivate this in the middle of a national park which happens to be the best breeding ground for Bengal tigers in India called Bandhavgarh.
