My grandma got very ill



My 91-year-old grandmother used to be quite healthy. But this time, she got very ill. She was rushed to the emergency room after severe episodes of coughing(often with vomiting after the cough). When she was admitted, her heart rate was as low as 35 and as high as 198. Her blood pressure was 60/30. The doctors issued the "Critically-Ill Notice" three days later and asked our family to start preparing for the worst. She was soon diagnosed with COPD(chronic bronchitis), heart disease, diaphragmatic hernia, lower respiratory tract infection, electrolyte imbalance and hepatolith. I thought to myself: I'm going to lose her this time.

I was told I had emphysema in 1987 when I was 45 years old. I smoked for 30 years, but quit smoking as soon as I was told that I had COPD. Quitting smoking was the hardest thing I ever did. But I knew I would die if I didn't. My health was getting so bad that I needed oxygen 24/7 and was down to 92lbs. Thankfully, in 1999 I got lung volume reduction surgery. It saved my life. I no longer needed oxygen and was able to climb stairs, dance, and travel the world. That good fortune lasted for almost 13 years. I am now back on oxygen 24/7 and can't climb stairs, dance or travel the world. i searched for alternative treatment Online i was introduced to Health herbal clinic by a friend here in the United states she told me they have successful herbal treatment to Emphysema and other lungs diseases. I spoke to few people who used the treatment here in USA and they all gave a positive response, so i immediately purchased the COPD herbal formula and commenced usage, its totally unexplainable how all the symptoms totally dissapeared, my cough was gone and i no longer experience shortness of breath(dyspnea), contact this herbal clinic via their email Info@ healthherbalclinic. net Or website www. healthherbalclinic. net Herbs are truely gift from God

My mom was on meds for COPD and eventually oxygen. I had asthma myself. i found this stuff that worked for me and started giving it to my 92yr old mom. She is off oxygen and off the meds for COPD now. It is called MMS and it cost less than $20 for a year supply. look up jimhumble.biz, jim humble, or genesis church 2 forum - it is amazing stuff
