Integrative Approaches to Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD)

Asha Devereaux, MD
Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is characterized by progressive airway obstruction. It is the fourth most common cause of death in the United States and is projected to be the third leading cause of death worldwide by the year 2030. The management of COPD aims to improve dyspnea and exercise tolerance while reducing acute exacerbations. Asha Devereaux, MD, is a leading authority on integrative approaches to COPD. She encourages practitioners to learn how they can offer adjunctive, integrative therapies for patients with COPD.
