OK – I’m a lifelong asthmatic and it’s not quite the same as COPD but it is very similar

My father has COPD – he smoked for 40 years and gave up, but by then the damage had been done, to both of us I guess, him active, me passive as a child.

My advice is

Eat lightly but eat well
Keep active
Use the blue Ventolin of you need to, if it’s the generic inhaler instead of Ventolin kick up a fuss and get Ventolin – it works better
Be consistent with your Incruse – consistency with these inhalers is really important
Sleep in a cool room

Herbally – Schizandra Chinesis is your friend. It does help. I take it every day, my asthma symptoms are worse without it
