Lung Disease, Glutathione and Health

Over 30 million Americans are affected by lung disease. What are the lung related diseases and how do they affect us? The answer will take your breath away.

More importantly, what can be done to protect our lungs from these diseases? And how does glutathione play a role?

One of the most dreadful symptoms people may ever experience is dyspnea or shortness of breath. I know this because of my experience having asthma as a child. To awake in the middle of the night not being able to breathe was terrifying.

Lung disease is divided into two types. Acute (sudden onset) or chronic (persisting more than 6 months). Diseases of the lungs can be congenital (inherited), acquired, or self inflicted.

One commonality of lung diseases is inflammation of the lung tissue. Complimentary treatments used to enhance traditional medicine include antioxidants.

This is where the bodies own natural antioxidant plays an important role.

The Pulmonary Exception

Here is a human body anomaly. Current research indicates we can absorb glutathione (GSH) in the diet, but we do so poorly. Only by eating the building blocks of GSH can we get the best results of improving GSH at the cellular level. The Lungs are the exception. They can absorb glutathione directly. Additionally, Mucomist includes a topical type of cystine (N-acetyl-cysteine) that is an effective glutathione precursor.

advanced stage lung cancer

About 15 percent of all lung cancers are called small cell lung cancer. The remaining 85 percent are non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). They are two different cancers with two different traditional medical treatments.

To measure how far the cancer has progressed or spread, diagnostic testing is preformed. This is called staging.

We will have a brief overview of the stages and implications.

Lung Cancer Warning Signs

The warning signs you will see could be the signs of other serious lung illnesses. If you have any of them, you need to seek medical a diagnosis and treatment. If you do not want to use traditional medical treatments, seek out a medical doctor that uses complimentary and alternative medical treatments. Failure to do so could not only harm you, it could harm others around you if what you have is contagious.

How to Prevent Lung Cancer

Good Lung Bad Lung shines when it comes to preventing lung cancer. Cysteine and NAC are powerful ways to help your lungs turn from bad lungs to good lungs. If you hospice is not an option and you still have a job to be done or want to put dyeing on hold, there are no guarantees but this is a viable option. More importantly, it has worked for some. One of the first patients diagnosed with stage IV lung cancer and sent home at 82 years of age was one such patient. She did end up dying. Only thing, it was at 94, twelve years later.


Tuberculosis or TB is a disease that primarily affects the lungs. TB is caused by breathing in the bacteria called mycobacterium tuberculosis. This can happen when an infected person sneezes or coughs, the bacteria become airborne. Sun light and fluorescent light kills the bacteria. So the greatest risk of infection comes from enclosed spaces.

Many who are exposed to TB become infected are able to fight the infection, leaving the bacteria inactive. The bacteria are still alive and may become active again in the future. Those with latent infection do not suffer from symptoms of the disease and do not spread TB to others.

Once active, if the body's immune system is not strong enough to fight the infection, the TB bacteria will grow and multiply. It can even spread to other parts of the body and is a condition known as active TB. Active TB is contagious. It can be deadly if not treated. There is a cure but it only works if the meds are taken every day, usually for six to nine months. Even if the symptoms improve, it is necessary to continue with the treatment as prescribed by the doctor.

Failure to do so could not only put your life at risk, it could also affect others you come in contact with.

Tick Borne Disease Can Cause Lung Disease

Ehrlichiosis, Tularemia, RMSF, Babesiosis are just a few of the tick borne diseases that have been found to cause lung health related issues.


Chronic Bronchitis

Bronchitis is inflammation or swelling (itis) of the airways (bronchia). Additional symptoms include increased mucous production. Bronchitis can be acute (sudden onset) or chronic (long term).

Chronic bronchitis definition...having a mucous producing cough for 3 months of a year for 2 consecutive years. The condition has a constant irritation of the airways. Smoking, dust and other air pollution can contribute to chronic bronchitis.

Chronic post nasal drip can trigger a cough that will often be diagnosed as chronic bronchitis.

Cough variant asthma is often misdiagnosed as bronchitis.

Black Lung Black Lung Disease

Black lung disease, coal workers' pneumoconiosis (CWP) or anthracosis is a lung disease of older coal industry workers.

Typically affects workers over age 50. Its common name comes from the fact that the inhalation of heavy deposits of coal dust makes miners lungs look black instead of a healthy pink. Although people who live in cities often have some black deposits in their lungs from polluted air, coal miners have much more extensive deposits.

Did You Know?

Did you know that Glutathione has a high affinity for water? This means to build adequate GSH, we need adequate water. Both inside and out side our cells. There is an easy, simple way to get hydrated.

It's called the

Water Cures Protocol.

The Way to Make More GSH For Free

Glutathione has a high affinity for water. Simply put, if we are dehydrated our bodies may not make as much as they could. Or, what we do make may be less effective.

Usually there is something more than just being dehydrated. Often there is a condition called fluid and electrolyte imbalance, less than bodies needs. There is a simple, easy and inexpensive way to correct this, allowing your body to produce even more GSH.

The Water Cures Protocol really works. Give it a try today.

It is simple, easy, sustainable and affordable (the salt should cost less than $10 a year).

And like GSH, it will help with over 76 different diseases and conditions.
