Subject: Herbs to Help Emphysema
Answered by: Christine Dennis


Question from: John

Can you recomend herbs that will help with huffing and puffing (breathing fells like I have a weight on my chest) and my bringing up a thick sticky yellow mucus when I get this out I breath?

This question has been answered before and you can find it at:

However, I would like to add that emphysema can respond quite well when stronger herbs that are used only under the supervision of a qualifying herbalist are used. Additionally, lung tonics such as elecampane, thyme, iceland moss and lungwort are also helpful. Deep breathing exercises can also help to strengthen the lungs and help with the removal of thick mucous.
