    I have terrible incurable asthma and cannot exhale at all. Is there anything that can repair damage from cigarettes?
    I also have a calcified granuloma and want to thake antibiotics to cure the infection
    I think I stroke out every night with hypoxia of 63% and during the day my O2 drops to 70% suddenly with 125 bpm tachycardia.

    I've been taking hydroxo cobalamin to lower my cyanide levels. Is there anything else that could at all possibly help??

    i think you told me, but are you on O2?

    maybe liposomal C?

    hyperbaric oxygen?

    How does NAC help? I thought maybe it could damage the lungs....

    I still can't exhale at all even on prednisone. My pulmonologist before he passed away believed in regular courses of prednisone to prevent the progression of asthma. I tried it maybe 3 courses a year for a week, but my lung function stil deteriorated to such a terrible level that I can't exhale anymore and I stop breathing in my sleep.
    at this point with the granuloma I want to try some courses of antiboitics to see if that will help my poor scarred lungs. I'd love to do HBOT but I can't afford it and I think you need to do 21 treatments

    Studies have shown it to be helpful in COPD.

    yeah I read that online. prednisone may cause diabetes and boneloss. I'm taking hydroxo b12 at 10000mcg day now. Is there a cheaper source than $20 a bottle?
    I've been taking NAC for a long time now and my liver levels are normal on all the blood tests for AST ALT.

    there is a medication losartan that may help repair smoking damage

    if you have a granuloma and you were exposed to tuberculosis for years from your family what would you take for that? I was working overseas on faculty and probably have infectious diseases from there. I was looking at ampicillin and tinidazole
