Pity I am not cleared to moderate this forum; I would give this post a ~BSA for sure. I am so glad you were able to help restore your friend's quality of life, and hopefully extend it for a good long time. I know two men, one a distant cousin and the other the husband of a dear friend who are in late stage COPD. Both use the C-Pap to oxygenate and regulate their blood. Both are failing, both are deeply committed to traditional medicine. Both men are heavy smokers who are married to heavy smokers. Both worked in highly toxic environments before they got too sick to work. Hopefully a copy of your remarkable post will help open their eyes to the possibilities of hope if they would accept non-traditional methods.
