My mother 76 Y.O. has been diagnosed with COPD, it begun with a sudden decrease in her stamina to walk or climb stairs. the pulmunologist prescribed Veramyst, Symbicort and Ventolin in emergencies she is also taking Simvastatin, Amlidopine and Alprazolam and  NAC, black seed  and various other supplements. her conditon has not improved much can't walk more than a block without geting winded now her cardiologist suggests that she takes the diuretic Lasix 20mg but she does not want to take it because of side effects concerns. The alergist suggested 2000 iu of vitamin D

Does anyone have a similar experience and been able to improve and do you know of any doctors that treat allergies and asthma in NYC who can treat her?

Welcome to the Forums. 

Life Extension recommends that your mother follow her physician's advice.  You will find Life Extension's information on COPD of interest.

There's a forum here http://www.stemcellpioneers.com/forumdisplay.php?f=4

I've got COPD. I'm taking low dose theophylline (200 mg twice a day) along with a steroid inhaler in the hope this research (old article but research is ongoing) is correct about halting the progression of the disease

(my peak flow reading hasn't got any worse in the 2 years I've been taking it)



and I'm about to start taking this

You might want to check out Serrapeptase, also: http://serrapeptase.info/category/lung-and-chest-problems/

You also need to read these articles on the prescribed inhaler's that she uses:

http://www.naturalnews.com/020318_death_patients_COPD.html & http://www.naturalnews.com/024510_COPD_disease_drugs.html

There's further info here: http://www.naturalnews.com/COPD.html

It's a horrible way to die (it took our oldest daughter, only 33, before I had learned any of this stuff), so I hope you take this information to heart. Pete
