I have been looking into what causes the elastin in the lungs to breakdown and Alpha-1 Anti-trypsin seems to be a possible problem. It is made by liver to block trypsin and protect the lungs, but if the liver is clogged from too many liver stones (from carbs and gmo's), it may not supply the trypsin inhibitor.
Has anyone with emphysema ever completely flushed their liver?
I know that silica is good for the bones, but didn't know it could repair lung tissues.
Also, here is a research article showing lowcarb diet improves copd.
One of the goals in treating patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) who suffer from hypoxemia, hypercapnia, and malnutrition is to correct the malnutrition without increasing the respiratory quotient and minimize the production of carbon dioxide. This 3-wk study evaluated the efficacy of feeding a high-fat, low-carbohydrate (CHO) nutritional supplement as opposed to a high-carbohydrate diet in COPD patients on parameters of pulmonary function.
Sixty COPD patients with low body weight (<90% ideal body weight) were randomized to the control group, which received dietary counseling for a high-CHO diet (15% protein, 20% to 30% fat, and 60% to 70% CHO), or the experimental group, which received two to three cans (237 mL/can) of a high-fat, low-CHO oral supplement (16.7% protein, 55.1% fat, and 28.2% CHO) in the evening as part of the diet. Measurements of lung function (forced expiratory volume in 1 s or volume of air exhaled in 1 s of maximal expiration, minute ventilation, oxygen consumption per unit time, carbon dioxide production in unit time, and respiratory quotient) and blood gases (pH, arterial carbon dioxide tension, and arterial oxygen tension) were taken at baseline and after 3 wk.
Lung function measurements decreased significantly and forced expiratory volume increased significantly in the experimental group.
