Molecular Hydrogen: A Natural COPD Cure
DISCLAIMER: Always consult a doctor before undergoing treatment of any kind.
Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, also known as COPD, is often caused by cigarette smoking. This disease typically involves chronic inflammation throughout the body, most notably in the lungs. Scientists have noted that the oxidants in cigarette smoke can cause DNA damage by altering hydrogen bonds that keep DNA structure stable. By administering molecular hydrogen directly to the lungs via nebulized water that contains high concentrations of molecular hydrogen or via drinking water that contains high concentrations of molecular hydrogen, DNA structure can be restored over time to spur reduced inflammation of the bronchioles immediately and permanent healing over time in COPD patients. Long-term treatment with molecular hydrogen (for at least 1 year) is necessary to produce a permanent cure for COPD. Maintenance doses of molecular hydrogen may be required after permanent healing to maintain results.
How does molecular hydrogen work to cure COPD?
Scientists aren’t sure exactly how molecular hydrogen works to cure COPD, but they do know that molecular hydrogen is a powerful antioxidant that has the ability to penetrate the mitochondria to donate energy in the form of electrons and to also penetrate the nucleus of the cell to heal DNA. Many scientists have theorized that the antioxidant quality of molecular hydrogen counteracts the effects of toxic oxidants that caused the initial lung damage in COPD patients.
Not only can molecular hydrogen in water be used to cure COPD it can also be used to prevent COPD patients from developing chronic bronchitis and emphysema.
Why You Should Do Molecular Hydrogen Treatments for COPD
The number one reason why everyone with COPD should try molecular hydrogen treatments is because this treatment produces NO KNOWN SIDE EFFECTS. At the same time, molecular hydrogen can do a lot of good and even cure COPD with long-term, consistent treatment of at least 1 year.
Scientific studies have shown that nebulizing high concentration molecular hydrogen water can restore static lung compliance in COPD while decreasing levels of oxidative damage to DNA. It can also prevent the decline of lung functioning in COPD patients by reversing the damage to lung tissues. Molecular hydrogen therapy prevented the release of cytokines that cause inflammation (including those that cause inflammation in COVID-19 ARDS patients) while reducing cell death and slowing or preventing the development of emphysema in COPD patients.
There are limited treatment options available through conventional medicine for patients with COPD, but molecular hydrogen is an at-home COPD cure that can be administered by anyone. Most doctors don’t know anything about the use of high-concentration molecular hydrogen water, also know as Kangen water, as a natural treatment for obstructive lung diseases because it is affordable and accessible and it works as a cure and not just a band-aid for COPD and therefore it is not a treatment recommended by Big Pharma.
COPD as a Disease Caused by Toxic Oxidants
The body works hard to maintain a balance between oxidants and antioxidants, but in some situations, the balance becomes impossible to maintain. Patients with COPD often have a lot of oxidant damage in their lungs caused by specific free radicals. Once an imbalance occurs between these toxic oxidants and antioxidants in the body, it can be hard to restore the balance without some kind of therapeutic intervention. COPD patients can use molecular hydrogen to restore this balance, reduce and reverse oxidant damage in the lungs, and administer healing hydrogen to DNA that has been structurally damaged.
Molecular Hydrogen Therapy with Supplemental Oxygen Therapy for COPD Patients
Many COPD patients suffer from shortness of breath. There is a temptation to use only supplemental oxygen therapy in COPD because it’s important to make sure that the organs in COPD patients receive plenty of oxygen. Using supplemental oxygen by itself for COPD can help reduce hypoxia and the downward spiraling effects of hypoxia on the heart, liver, and blood supply. But too much oxygen can function as an “oxidant” in the lungs, particularly in individuals with obstructive lung disease where the oxygen irritates airways, gets trapped, and then can’t escape. Using supplemental oxygen therapy with nebulized molecular hydrogen, on the other hand, not only reduces inflammation in the airways, allowing better oxygenation of the organs just by breathing regular air, but molecular hydrogen can also reduce oxidant-related cell death or damage caused by oxygen that gets trapped in the lungs as a result of obstructions. Studies have shown that in COPD patients, hydrogen and oxygen therapy administered together is superior to oxygen therapy administered by itself. In patients with COPD, this combo therapy has a very good safety profile.
Supplemental Oxygen for COPD Patients
Studies have shown the use of home oxygen therapy can be beneficial for COPD patients. The goal for patients is to keep their oxygen levels within the normal range. Using an oximeter to measure oxygen levels is a helpful tool for COPD sufferers. Blood oxygen levels between 95% and 100% is considered normal.
Patients with COPD, sleep apnea, or other obstructive lung disease issues may have a blood oxygenation level closer to 90%.
How to Use Molecular Hydrogen to Cure COPD
Patients with COPD who wish to use molecular hydrogen to cure the disease should obtain a machine that produces molecular hydrogen that can be inhaled. Machines that produce water with a high concentration of molecular hydrogen that can be ingested as drinking water and/or inhaled via a nebulizer can be purchased as “Molecular Hydrogen Generators” or as “Kangen Machines”.
Inhaling molecular oxygen feels different than inhaling supplemental oxygen. Hydrogen is the smallest atom that weighs less than every other atom. As such, some molecular hydrogen machines are able to passively release hydrogen as bubbles from an electrolysis device at the bottom of a reservoir of water. These bubble release hydrogen that flows up a tube into a nasal cannula for inhalation. The hydrogen naturally rises up quietly through the nasal cannula tube rather than being forced up through the nasal cannula as in supplemental oxygen therapy with air being pushed through the system into the nose. Nonetheless, people often feel the results of molecular hydrogen therapy as a mild lessening of their cough and an increase in their ability to breathe. As such , if you have a machine that produces molecular hydrogen and a different machine that produces supplemental oxygen, it is best to use the molecular hydrogen for about 45 minutes before administering supplemental oxygen. The molecular hydrogen will lessen inflammation in the airways, making it easier for oxygen to reach the blood supply via the lungs. Use supplemental oxygen for only 5 to 30 minutes to restore your oxygen levels to 95-100%. Then, consider administering molecular hydrogen therapy for an additional 5 to 15 minutes to keep inflammation levels down in the airways.
Patients should find a molecular hydrogen machine that either allows direct inhalation of the molecular hydrogen as a gas or that produces molecular hydrogen in high concentrations in water that can be nebulized in a nebulizer that would be purchased separately.
Molecular hydrogen treatments for COPD should be administered for 45 minutes to 60 minutes once daily. These treatments reduce inflammation and oxidation, but patients should commit to doing these treatments for at least one year to really see the effects because there is a process of renewal and rebuilding at the level of DNA that must occur for COPD patients to cure the disease.
