I am struggling with another chest infection at the moment. I have been to the doctors and he has given me antibiotics and oral steroid's. I am supporting that with high levels of vitamin c, 3000 mg per day to try and kill the infection, and also high levels of vitamin E for the immune system, with no luck yet I am still very breathless, although my peak flow is not too bad at 340, and oxygen levels of 96, so that is quite good.
Licorice root has been used to help breathing condition so I will get some of that to help the condition. Here is a report.
Over the past couple of months I have suffered from server asthma attacks and nasty lung infections. Doctors put me on inhalers and heavy steroids to help me breathe easier, but these types of medicines came with multiple side effects that made me really out of it. I simply couldn't stand the prescription drugs anymore so I decide to try and herbal remedy called licorice root. Licorice root is been used for many years as a Chinese herbal medicine to help relieve respiratory problems and so far since I have been taking it my respiratory systems has improved greatly.
A great exercise to help breathing is to stand or sit with your arms crossed your chest, so left arm to right shoulder and right arm to left shoulder, strechch your body to the left, breathing in as you do so. Then turn your body to the right breathing in as you do so, repeat this for about ten times. Hopefully I should soon feel better.
