Is your husband dealing with Emphysema, Asthma? Knowing the answer makes a difference on how to treat the symptoms. No one with Emphysema should ever take cough medicine for instance. He may need to c a doctor and get some breathing treatments to help move the mucus that is sounds like he cannot cough up. Ginger root is a natural way of dealing with reflux. A humidifier cannot hurt that is for sure. Keep us posted. Does your husband c a pulmonologist? If not, he should asap.
