    Real Short of breath, not sure what to do

    For about 10 months, maybe longer been short of breath. I do smoke about 5-7 home rolled cigarettes a day without that fire safe paper crap.

    I got a cold a while back, turned from sinus to throat to chest. Thought I got that gone but the chest thing never went away. No other symptoms. Cough up clear foamy shyt, never any other color. Seems like it's foamy and chokes the fuck out of me. Stupidest shit I know I will type. I go out for a smoke and cough a couple times and spit that out and I feel fine.

    But it remains, day after day. Licorice tea kinda helped but wife stopped making it (first sign). Just kidding, not sure what to try or where to go. Jogging not an option since I cant breathe.

    The whole world seems to be closed and getting any answers are under wraps. My doc's and nurses tell me they are not allowed to tell me anything anymore. I am not going to a hospital, nope never. Unless I break a bone or something.

    WTF is this?

    Seriously anything that helps me breathe.

    You may have emphysema and/or anemia. There are other less common possibilities. In any event the good news is you can rebuild your lungs and your body. Commit to quitting tobacco (ween off over time can be done easily using supplements) and commit to a strict diet with supplements. Research the dietary recommendations of Dr. Joel Wallach on Youtube. I can assure you that if you strictly adhere to his recommendations you will experience significant symptomatic improvement within a few weeks and virtual recovery within a year.

    In the short term supplements that improve oxygen delivery to and ameliorate oxidative damage (from smoking) to the tissues include natural vitamin E, selenium, vitamin C and shilajit mineral tar. Also, shortness of breath can be secondary to heart failure. The latter usually responds to megadose thiamine (Vitamin B1), say 20-100 times the RDA. Never take a single B vitamin without taking a full B-complex supplement with the thiamine.

    All good recommendations, and I'd include one more supplement which is N-Acetyl Cysteine (also called NAC). It's key role is to help the body build its most powerful Antioxidant Glutathione. There have also been studies shown that it has helped improve those suffering from COPD which you sound like you might be in the beginning stages of.

    Just take a single 600mg pill a day of NAC, along with the recommendations that Mamboni provided with a change in diet and that should go a long way in helping you breath better.

    Re: Real Short of breath, not sure what to do

    Thanks people, I have some shilat tar on my desk from days gone by will start to use it again. I have started a B complex that seems to really help. Just ordered some NAC also. Seems like a chest infection that just never went away. Other than that I am very well.

    I will give this all some time and see where I am at. They say it sucks getting old but I will never get old lol...

    I notice that vit D3, improves my oxygen uptake.

    I routinely take 10,000 iu per day and when I feel it's slipping, I take 100 to 150,000 iu's. As a precaution I take vit K2 with it especially for the high doses.

    D mobilizes calcium and K2 steers it to the bones and out of the tissues.
    Well over 90 percent of the people Hitler locked up were German's. Only 2 to 3 percent were Jews and most of those Jews were elevated to running the concentration camps.

    Take a couple tablespoons of blackstrap molasses a day.
    It contains high levels of easily absorbable iron, which iron deficiency is usually what leads to anemia.
