Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease /COPD

I first came to see Dr. Giaquinto in January 2012. I had a hard time breathing every day, some days worse than others. I went to a pulmonary doctor six months earlier and they said I had COPD. And I have never smoked or been around many people who have smoked. My blood pressure was starting to rise and I was overweight. The quality of my sleep was getting worse and worse even being on a CPAP machine for the last 4 years. Every night I would wake up every 2 hours. My breathing condition was affecting everything I did. I had very little energy and desire. My ability to do things became less and less. I even wondered how long I would be able to live. I felt like I was getting weaker and weaker as time went on.  The sleep machine the pulmonary specialist prescribed for me did not do what they said they would do, which was not to have the problem anymore but only to treat the symptoms.

I was desperate. I wanted someone who would work with me to get well by alternative means and not have to live on medications for the rest of my life. I prayed and took a half a day to research in yellow pages and online to find an answer. I came across Dr. Giaquinto and liked his approach to health.  Dr. Giaquinto said he would be more than pleased to work with me. I told him that I would work with him. So we teamed up to get me well. I was serious and wanted to get well.

Since January 18th, I started on an exercise program of walking plus doing the exercises Dr. Giaquinto gave me. As of today, just under six months of treatment, I am breathing so much better, sleeping through the night uninterrupted, my blood pressure is normal and I have lost 25-30 pounds without taking drugs or dieting. Thanks to the adjustments, enzyme nutrition, eating healthy and walking, I am now living again.

Thank you Dr. Giaquinto.
