A 67-year-old patient with stage 3 COPD and Chronic Kidney Disease found Dr. Copes when looking for an alternative treatment. The patient used oxygen at night and as needed throughout the day. They suffered from shortness of breath, chest tightness, a productive cough, frequent cold and flu, asthma, wheezing, and chronic fatigue. Blood work detected deficiencies in the patient's kidneys, liver, and gallbladder. It is also important to note that the patient is Type II diabetic. The patient also had an x-ray in 2011 that revealed considerable cervical damage at C5-C6 with fusion occurring.
Dr. Copes recommended that the patient use Wei Laboratories herbal formals. In conjunction with the Wei herbal products, Dr. Copes used BEMER therapy and a nutritional plan. The Wei Laboratory products that Dr. Copes recommended were:
