COPD Common Causes

Most cases of COPD occur as a result of long-term exposure to lung irritants that damage the lungs and the airways, such as: 

  • Smoking (or inhaling second-hand smoke)
  • Occupational exposures (e.g. dust or chemical fumes)
  • Air pollution
  • Severe and long-term asthma
  • Chronic cough

"Thanks to the Buteyko method of breathing taught by Glenn at his clinic in Auckland my health has improved at an unbelievable rate.  I attended the course in early October 2010. I noticed an improvement within a few days.  In the first week I was no longer using the bronchial dilators. Three months later I continue to improve."
