Hi I'm new here...my mom was diagnosed with COPD about 30 years ago..she is now 89 years old...GOD BLESS HER...however her disease has progressed in the last couple of years because of her age and also several bouts of pneumonia ... Her biggest problem at this time is the mucus in her lungs...she spends so much time trying to expel this junk that it leaves her so tired and out of breathe ...any suggestions on what we could try that would at least eliminate some of this mucus...she uses albuteral and budesonide on the nebulizer along with spiriva and brio once daily...I am interested in some more natural remedies also..any info would be greatly appreciated ..tu
Hi I'm new here and would like some feedback ... - COPD Friends
Drink green tea with honey and lemon, I have a cup of hot water with lemon in the morning to loosen things up and then have the tea. Dr. told me to use Muscinex twice a day. Try Halls Lemon and Honey cough drops, they sometimes work for me and drink lots of water no matter what else you use, water thins it out.
Use an acapella flutter valve (I like the green one- sold on Amazon) and take 1000mg of N-Acetylene Cysteine daily with Doctor approval.(also sold on Amazon). Works great for me - along with mucinex and nebulizer of course. When these things clear me out, I can maintain with just the NAC and go for 6 - 8 weeks without mucus.
Hi Lady at coach,
I just received NAC
Before leaving for AZ I noticed my heartburn acts up.....have you or anyone else same?
I'm on Breo now and oxygen to sleep..the heavy feeling in my chest is gone but still get breathless with activity!
Once again, bless all on this site and thank you always for posting and encouragement.
Check out the comments here. Everyone with COPD ought to be on high dose vitamin C, and lipospheric is the best.
