Hello there I have not been around in a long time as I have used many alternative measures to make myself better that being said I logged on the other day and read Carol's post about her lungs. A lady that I work with has SEVERE COPD she is long disability leave I was asking her about you and she sent me this article. She is taking this.. just a thought you can do with it what you like.. I do wish you all the best as I know what a tough time the lady I worked with has. I don't have COPD but do/did have MCTD with high ANA titre of 1:2560 and VERY high rnp antibodies.
New fat fights chronic lung disease

Chronic lung disease is a growing problem in this country. And it's happening in people who don't smoke. It's hitting young and old alike. And it's hitting in a variety of ways. But whether it's asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis, or chronic bronchitis, there's a cheap and easy way to treat it.

Researchers found that one particular omega-3 fatty acid improves ventilation in chronic lung disease. It's DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). They collected data from 593 adults in Germany. The data confirmed a negative association for lung function for the fatty acid pamitoleic acid (which comes from dietary saturated fat). At the same time, DHA has a positive effect on lung hyper-reactivity.

We've known for some time that fish oil can help these patients. But this study focused on DHA in particular. DHA is a marine omega 3. However, you don't have to take the marine variety to see results.

Unlike its counterpart EPA, you can get a vegetarian marine DHA. It goes by the name Neuromins. This DHA is extracted from sea algae. If you have chronic lung disease, you might want to give it a try, perhaps one capsule twice daily. You can find it in many health food stores and on the Internet. Please let me know how it does for you.

Yours for better health and medical freedom,
Robert Jay Rowen, MD

MCTD had a high positive ANA of 1:2650 with high positive anti -rnp using antibiotic therapy and now much much better.

hey angela it's been awhile! that was so sweet of you to think of me. My son is a huge health food nut and he had actually told me I needed to check into it. Of course I blew him off lol. But now that I have heard it for a second time I think it might be worth checking into. So is it just omega 3 that I need to get? I really wasn't quit sure.
thank you and thank your friend for me
