Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease or COPD is a serious chronic lung disease that is a growing problem amongst baby boomers. You can help COPD by improving lymph flow. COPD, whether it is chronic bronchitis or emphysema is a life-changing diagnosis. The lymphatic system plays a large role in helping to maintain the tissues of the lungs. Your lungs help to reduce cellular waste. Every time you take a deep breath you help remove carbonic acid from the lungs. When carbonic acid builds in the lungs it can breakdown and damage lung tissue. By improving lymph flow with a healthier diet and lymphatic drainage you can help to improve circulation and natural detoxification of damaging acidic waste to help slow the progression of the COPD.
