Hi hart,

This is a random question, but do you eat a lot of dairy products? If so, it could be contributing to the congestion and COPD; mainly because dairy is mucus forming and acidic to our body. Just thought I'd throw that out there.

Because doctors and pharmacists only offer "treatment" options as opposed to curative ones, I'd also suggest consuming a lot more fruits and vegetables in your diet. This should help allieviate the symptoms associated with COPD, including any congestion. Eating this way is a lifestyle change however, so it's not something you can just do for a couple weeks and expect all your problems to be solved, but I can say that it will significantly help within a short time frame.

For even more relief you can use essential oils, such as peppermint or eucalyptus to aid as a decongestant.

I hope this advice helps!
