Question
Is there any natural medicine out there to help with COPD.
I am in the moderate stage and having a real hard time
quitting smoking.

Answer
Hi Debbie.  
Stopping smoking can be challenging.  If you visit a herbalist, they will be able to help you with a herbal formula to help with the cravings/withdrawal stage, as well as incorporate herbs to support your respiratory system.
Kind regards
