    Hello Dr. Sharma,
    In 1997 my husband endured five weeks of radiation to the base of his brain for a schwanomma. Prior to the radiation he began experiencing breathing problems…difficulty getting air into lungs as lungs felt full. This may have been caused by the schwnomma that was located on the 7th cranial nerve. Right after radiation his doctor prescribed Ativan to help with the breathing which did not improve. Now 22 years later he is still have severe issues and he is finding it hard to get the amount of Lorazepam he needs prescribed due to the laws on controlled substances. I have discussed this with many doctors throughout the world and not one has been able to assist. When he does a pulmonary tests it shows a restriction even though there is not. This all be due to the tumor and treatment which also affected his central nervous system and Vagal nerve. We desperately need to find a natural way of treating the breathing. He needs to take a minimum of 8 – 10 2 mg of Lorazapam on a daily basis. He tries to work from home because he cannot drive without Lorazepam and he does not have enough in a months prescription to allow him out of the house. He also suffers from head issues feeling heavy and dizzy and that is why he takes the Lorazepam as well.

  6. Saleha Ahmed Harris says:

    Hello Dr! My father (78 year olds) suffers from severe COPD and churg Strauss. He is constantly short of breath and finds walking and daily activities a real challenge and limiting. He also has a lot of mucus rattling around in him and doesn’t have the strength to cough it up and out. I’m not sure which combination of the above would suit him best. The one for SOB associated with walking or the one with coughing? They both apply to him. Can he have a cocktail of all four medicines?

  15. lien lequang says:

    Hello Dr,
    My husband often has shortness of breath after eating. He has been asthmatic for many years and he used salbutamol to relieve his pain. I strongly believe that homeopathy could help him because i had an experience with a French doctor who helped our son with his asthma when he was young. Due to his shortness of breath, he had troubles sleeping at night. Some nights he can sleep but others not at all. So he became depressed and he worried about just anything, I just hope we could find an homeopathy doctor near our area Santa Ana, 92704 CA to help him with this condition. He is actually 75 years old.
