W Greg Miller the author of How I Reversed My Moms EmphysemaWhen my mother was first diagnosed with emphysema I began researching the disease online. Every search eventually led back to a pharmaceutical web site telling the bad news, that the disease was terminal and the only hope was taking their medications and slowing its progress.

After two and a half years of my mother taking all the prescribed medications and doing all of the prescribed emphysema treatments she was noticeably worse. The puzzling aspect to me was that she had not smoked during that time. I understood that her emphysema was caused by smoking cigarettes but I also knew from engineering school that once something is taken out of the equation it is no longer a factor in the outcome. Smoking had been taken out of the equation so I knew it could not be causing her deteriorating condition.

I asked the doctor why her emphysema was getting worse so long after she had quit smoking. He replied, at first, with some medical rhetoric about the alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency stating that it "could be the alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency.

By this time I had completed more than 3,000 hours of research on emphysema and knew that this deficiency was a genetic disorder that generally produced visible symptoms in the late 20's or early 30's. When I let him know that I knew of this deficiency and knew this was not my mother's problem. I told him we both knew my mother's problem was a result of more than 30 years of smoking cigarettes. He then looked me right in the eye and told me that the truth was, they simply did not know why emphysema continued progressing long after smoking cessation. It was a mystery.

I decided right then and there I would continue researching emphysema from every aspect and perspective until I either solved the mystery or my mother took her last breath. One thing I was sure of, the pharmaceutical medications and treatments only masked symptoms. They provided no lasting improvement or healing. I later found out when my mother was in End Stage Emphysema that they one-by-one stopped working and would not even provide the temporary relief they once had.

Luckily, through the grace of God and many hours of prayer, God led me to the answers. I subsequently developed six general protocols, the specifics of which, completely reversed my mother's emphysema. By then I had completed more than 6500 hours of research besides graduate courses in Pathology, Pulmonary Physiology, Renal Physiology, Cardiac Physiology, Histology, Human Genetics and Human Anatomy Dissection. I read countless books during that time from doctors all over the world. Medical doctors, Osteopaths, Chiropractors, Naturopaths and Ph.D.'s were among the authors.

My mother in September 2007 in the early stages of recovery from emphysema and COPD.This is a picture of my mother in the early stages of recovery from emphysema. She had deteriorated down to End Stage Emphysema weighing only 77 pounds and requiring 4 liters of supplememtal oxygen 24/7.

In this picture she has gained back 6 pounds of the 26 pounds she lost and is only requiring 3 liters of supplemental oxygen. This is not what she looked like at her worst. She would not let us photograph her at that time. You can see she still has the cannula in her nose but does not look so disheveled like she had a few months earlier.

My mother, my brother and I at my mothers 76th birthday party after her complete recovery from COPD and emphysema.

This is my mother in December 2008 at her 76th birthday party. You can see she looks very vibrant and no longer needs any supplemental oxygen. What you cannot see is the portable oxygen tank on the couch in the other room. She carried it with her for more than a month but never turned it on. It was her "security blanket."

You can see that I am in the middle. I cut out my picture and use it all over the internet. This was the happiest I have ever been in my life. I couldn't believe my mother had recovered completely from emphysema and COPD. The doctors said that reversing emphysema was impossible.

Below is a closeup of my mother from the same picture.

My mother in December 2008 after her full recovery from emphysema and COPD.You can see she is happy and vibrant and her skin looks healthy. Notice there is no cannula in her nose. Out of sight on the couch is her portable oxygen tank which she never used once. She broght it everywhere with her for about a month as a security blanket. You can see my smile. This was as happy as I have ever been in my life. I realized that God was listening to my prayers and had answered them in an amazing way!

I am not sure why the pharmaceutical companies do not embrace these protocols. The only thing I can figure is that my six general protocols do not require any of their very expensive patented medications or treatments except for temporary relief of symptoms or exacerbations.
