    I was diagnosed of chronic bronchitis (CB). I had it for about 3 years. While it lasted, I coughed every day. My throat was always filled with mucus and it never goes away. Some days my cough is more persistent and I'll cough up the mucus; most days I just have a pitiful cough that bothers my throat but I can't stop. I was given prednisone and different inhalers which I used for years. These medications only subdued it for few weeks, but it will return again coupled with wheezing. I also had other heart challenges from using these medications. I got tired of using English medications and inhalers without a cure; I thought I will be stuck with bronchitis forever.
    I needed alternative medications that will restore my health. The wheezing and coughs was getting too much whenever it returns. In search for a cure I went to googled where I read stories of those who had experienced severe cases worst than mine but got cured after using Herbal Medications. Truth is that I never used Herbal medications because I thought if English med failed, what can herbs do for me. But years of bronchitis has removed my doubt as I have tried all known inhalers and medications without cure. I followed the testimonies of an Herbal medication recommended by someone whose bronchitis was caused from years of smoking, but was cured by herbal medication. I contacted Dr. Scott which he mentioned, placed my order and 3 months of use, I noticed tremendous improvement. After I finished the Herbal medication, I have never had bronchitis again till today which was 2 years ago. Well, I trust Dr. Scott herbal medication as a perfect cure for bronchitis.
