feeling great

Hi I have had COPD for nearly 4 yrs now and had many ups and downs, at the moment I'm good after a few weeks of emotional turmoil, chest infections, steriods, things were going really bad but now I feel great, have lost some weight which makes a differnce to my health although wasnt over weight, am taking liquorish tablets which have improved my breathing 10 fold. Many people on here have helped me in the past, I'd like to say thank you. and Hello to you all . x

  • Hi Hopeful, I read about these capsules from here, as apparently liquorish is good for breathing, there called liquorish root caps and got them at Holland and Barret. take 2 a day they dont help with my weight loss take other herbal tabs for that but have been told they wont harm me as long as I on a good diet. which I try to be, makes such a difference to my diaphram . good luck hun xx
