Acupuncture Treatment Bronchitis and COPD Relief
Acupuncture provides natural treatment for bronchitis and COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). Respiratory conditions such as chronic bronchitis, asthma, and emphysema are difficult conditions but acupuncture can help you breathe a whole lot easier.
Acute bronchitis is an inflammation of the lung’s airway and occurs shortly after catching a cold. At first you may experience a sore throat, runny nose, and eventually a cough. When it spreads to your lungs and does not improve after several days, you may be experiencing bronchitis.
Bronchitis symptoms include chest pain, a productive cough, shortness of breath, and wheezing. You may be prescribed pharmaceuticals to treat the symptoms. After visiting your doctor and receiving the appropriate medical care, visit your acupuncturist to reduce or eliminate the cough! Acupuncture relieves coughs quickly so you can breathe easier.

For some people coughs can become ongoing and recur year after year. A condition called ‘chronic bronchitis’ is characterized by a ‘cough with sputum production on most days for 3 months of a year for 2 consecutive years (wikipedia). Chronic bronchitis is classified as one of the two types of COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease).
Emphysema is the second type of COPD and is a more serious condition due to long term lung damage. Acupuncture combined with appropriate medical care can help reduce coughing due to bronchitis, chronic bronchitis, and COPD.
