Hello: I'm 68 years old. I have COPD and Congestive Heart Disease. Also, as a result of the heart problem I am now confined to a wheelchair. I am on 4 liters of Oxygen 24/7. I take 26 separate medications daily for this and that. Some of them are just to counter-act the side effects of others. My folks owned a drug store when I was a kid and were very cautious about taking medications as they were aware of side effects, sometimes worse than the condition they are supposed to be treating. I too share their concerns and am looking for alternative or natural medicines to treat my conditions. I nearly died five years ago and at that time I was expected to die within months. After five years I am still going so you could say I'm living on borrowed time. Any alternative medicines I might take would have to be thoroughly researched so I don't jump from the frying pan into the fire. I am interested in reading about other's experience with health problems in general or with natural medications. I am completely responsible for my present health conditions and so, so grateful for those who have already helped pull me out of some very dark places.
