How can SoeMac help with your COPD?

 

SoeMac can you help to improve the efficiency of your breathing, enhancing how your body utilises oxygen whilst you sleep at night. It’s designed to help you breathe more freely, maximising the value of each of your breaths, so that you can get a better night’s sleep, and help you to reduce the impact of your COPD.

95% of COPD sufferers see an improvement in their condition, SoeMac can help to:

  • Clear excess mucus from the lungs
  • Enables a deeper, more productive breathing pattern
  • Less gasping for air, spluttering, and coughing
  • Better quality of sleep
  • Fewer nighttime wakings
  • Helps reduce feelings of anxiety by improving your quality of sleep
  • Helps improve your energy levels during the day
  • Supports other COPD treatments safely, without any intervention

Please note - some of our users with more serious breathing conditions find it can take a little longer than 30 days before they feel the full benefit of SoeMac. This is entirely normal.

By breathing in air energised by SoeMac at night, your body can do its essential restoration work more effectively, so you can do more with your life.

What is Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease?

COPD is a type of obstructive lung disease characterised by chronically poor airflow, and it typically worsens over time. It is the umbrella term for a collection of lung diseases including chronic bronchitis, emphysema and chronic obstructive airway disease.

The main symptoms include shortness of breath, cough, and sputum production. Tobacco smoking is the most common cause of COPD.  Worldwide, COPD affects 329 million people or nearly 5% of the population. In 2011, it ranked as the fourth-leading cause of death, killing over 3 million people. The number of deaths is projected to increase due to higher smoking rates and an ageing population in many countries.

The main cause of COPD is smoking because it inflames the lungs. The likelihood of getting COPD increases the more you smoke and the longer you have been smoking. Over time, the lungs become increasingly inflamed and scarred, the walls of the airways thicken and damage is caused to the air sacs in the lungs, which lose their elasticity.

COPD may also be caused by fumes, dust, air pollution and genetic diseases, but this is far less common than nicotine.

What are the symptoms?

Shortness of breath, wheezing, tightness in the chest, and a persistent cough. These symptoms will typically worsen over time. If COPD is severe, it is also possible to experience weight loss, swelling of the ankles and loss of appetite.

How can it be treated?

Although COPD is a chronic illness, there are a number of treatment options that can help to improve the symptoms.

  • Smokers should try to give up smoking as this will reduce the chance of the condition getting worse
  • Managing weight and eating healthily will help to prevent infections and keep lungs healthy
  • Regular exercise and a good night’s sleep, using a SoeMac, will help to maintain energy levels
  • If oxygen levels become too low, this is when oxygen treatment may be necessary
  • With a greater understanding of your breathing disorder or breathing problems, along with an accurate medical diagnosis and effective treatment, you can regain control of your life. Controlling your disorder on a day-to-day basis is crucial to living an active, productive life

Our testimonials from Asthma sufferers

“I received a SoeMac device in July 2012. At first I was very sceptical of the idea. As instructed, I placed the device in my bedroom and turn it on 2 hours before I go to bed, leaving it on overnight.

I have suffered with Asthma for nearly thirty years. During that time I have used many types of inhalers, including steroids. My dependence on inhalers varies due to the time of year and seasonal weather. At worst I use an inhaler 4-5 times per day, at best I use my inhaler twice per day. I always have to use my inhaler before going to bed at night. Sleep has also been difficult; I always wake up at least once per night with a shortage of breath. This interrupted sleep has probably caused me more health issues and discomfort than anything else.

The results of using the SoeMac device are very simple to explain, I sleep 7-8 hours without interruption each night and my use of inhalers has dropped to 1-2 per day on average. In fact there are days where I forget to use the inhaler, which had become a regular habit. I have more energy due to better sleep and I somehow feel fresher and ready to go."

“I am delighted with the SoeMac as it has really helped with my breathing. I have chronic asthma, and I am the start of COPD. Some days are still better than others, but I have noticed the annoying coughing has become less, and my breathing in the morning is much better. One day I even forgot to take my medication as my chest was so clear.

To me it has made a great difference, and it is much better than having to take more medication. I am absolutely delighted with the SoeMac, and have felt a marked difference in my breathing and sleep.”
