I just read this herbs will help with shortness of breath which people with lung cancer eventually have
Osha is an herb native to the Rocky Mountain area and has historically been used by the Native Americans for respiratory support. The roots of the plant contain camphor and other compounds which make it one of the best lung-support herbs in America. One of the main benefits of osha root is that it helps increase circulation to the lungs, which makes it easier to take deep breaths. Also… when seasonal sensitivities flare up your sinuses, osha root, which is not an actual antihistamine, does produce a similar effect and may be help calm respiratory irritation!
I was going to order herbpharm brand tincture of osha but they and all the companies who sell it ems to be out of stock so you might want to contact them and get them to order it
and so I just found some bulk herb of osha that was organic and ordered it just now to make my own tincture for if it gets worst
