Publisher Comments:

“You can and will be able to make a significant difference in the quality of your life if you make the commitment to take an active role in managing your disease.” — From the book

Armed with good information what can you do?

Breathe easier, live longer, enjoy life more!

Teri Allen, a registered respiratory therapist who has worked with COPD patients for almost 20 years, shows you how in this clearly written and wonderfully comprehensive guide.

While a diagnosis of COPD (a condition that can include emphysema and chronic obstructive bronchitis) can feel devastating, and while symptoms can be debilitating, there is a great deal you can do to experience

more energy less shortness of breath a fuller, happier life

More than 12 million people in the U.S. are currently living with COPD—and an additional 12 million may be undiagnosed—so you are clearly not alone. Whats more, as Allen points out, we all have limitations we must navigate. Still, your challenges are real, and thats why Allen created this resource.

Patients at every stage of COPD can learn to work with their limitations, rather than against them, in all aspects of life—around the home, out and about, and during flare-ups.

You will gain greater control over your disease and your life by learning to

breathe effectively and control coughing

best use medications, including alternative and naturopathic remedies

deal with emotional and psychological issues

identify your personal symptom triggers

exercise safely, choose optimal foods, and quit if you are a smoker

Complete with tips on working with doctors, insurance companies and home-care providers, this is smart, accessible information and advice for everyone who has or cares for someone with COPD.

Synopsis:

The diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) can be devastating. Its important to note, though, that while COPD is debilitating, it is not a death sentence. With proper disease management, people with COPD can expect to live a full and happy life. While there are no magic pills or quick fixes, there are many things COPD sufferers can do to have more energy, less shortness of breath, and an overall better quality of life despite breathlessness or use of home oxygen. This comprehensive guide helps people in any stage of COPD learn to work with their physical limitations rather than against them. Compassionate and clearly written, it covers every aspect of the disease, including the psychological and emotional issues that go along with having COPD, medications and physical therapy, identifying triggers and warning signs, creating an action plan for worsening symptoms, techniques to make breathing easier, working with healthcare providers, and much more.
