I am in the early stages of COPD, but never extremely short of breath, until one day, I went upstairs and was out of breath. At first, I thought it was from being idle from arthritis, but instead of getting any better from numerous trips up the stairs, it's actually gotten worse. I had started Apple Cider Vinegar and Baking Soda for the pain (and it helps) but the SOB still as bad. I started inhaling Peroxide a couple of weeks ago and I can't tell any difference at all. When out of breath, if I try to take a deep breath, it causes me to cough and now I'm getting sick at my stomach when I do that. I am wondering if I am inhaling wrong or am I so bad it's only going to take longer than I had hoped. I have thought about low iron, I have had all my life and I ordered some Blackstrap Molasses. There isn't a decent health food store near me, I don't have access to much except thru the internet. Does anyone know anything else I need to do and with what?
