Hi Everyone! My father is 63 and he has COPD. He stopped smoking 34 years ago but has suffered with Asthma since he was a small boy and unfortunately these things combined have resulted in this diagnosis. Lately he has struggled a lot with being able to clear the excess mucus on his chest and in his throat despite being prescribed steroids and antibiotics. He has a terrible cough and it it wearing him out. Even though he is trying not to let it get him down, I can see it is becoming difficult for him. I have been researching possible natural supplements that are good for clearing mucus and helping with his other symptoms. I was wondering if anyone has any advice or takes anything themselves that they have found to be useful. I have read that Omega 3, Ginseng and N-Acetyl Cysteine NAC could all be helpful! Any advise or tips would be greatly appreciated. Dad has retired now and I want him to be able to enjoy it as much as possible after working so very hard all of his life. Thank you in advance for reading this everyone and as my knowledge and experiences increase hopefully I will be able to help you. Hope you all have a lovely day. Rebecca x
