Re: Moderate COPD
For the sleeping issue try Calms Forte if its available. its available OTC at our local grocery store, they work really well and I havent noticed any drowsiness...they are also safe & natural from what the label says but what is really natural when its in a pill form?
You may want to see a pulmonologist and have a lung function test. If you arent getting enough oxygen it could cause you to be tired a lot because your body isnt getting the oxygen it needs.
And yes, stopping smoking will help to greatly slow the advancement of your COPD but it wont reverse or completely stop it some COPD (Im guessing emphysema?) can be caused by other things like air polution, chemicals, etc.
I've also been told routine exercise, even if just walking 15 minutes a day, can boost energy levels. Also things like caffiene can tax your system because after the affects of caffiene wears off your body is more tired than when you took/drank it. My nutrionist (im diebetic) told me to also make sure to eat a good breakfast as your bodies metabolism is high in the morning peaks around noon then tapers off from there.
