I have never heard of an herbal remedy (cure?) for COPD. You don't describe it, so it is not possible to have an opinion.

Sorry. I hadn't noticed your title, but merely read the comment. Hysmeton (I looked it up) makes pretty strong claims. I have used herbs in the past. They were Chinese and were helpful in alleviating symptoms, but never even claimed to cure. My private physician (not an HMO) is also active in alternative medicine. I will ask him if the Hysmeton formula makes any sense. My understanding is that COPD involves irreversible damage.

OK. Now I have read Hysmeton's hype and I will not bother talking to my alternative doctor friend.

(1) They talk of the formula originating with a New Zealander and then a company being set up called GHRC. All the material in the promo is written by a non-native English speaker, so we don't know where this company is and who is running it. Certainly not New Zealanders.

(2) Participants in the emphysema study group are not on any medication. Anyone with emphysema, who knows he has emphysema and has disturbing symptoms, in on some sort of medication. It is not indicated whether the participants have actually been been diagnosed with emphysema by competent doctors.

(3) The "20 data points" are not identified. It is not known if the improvements are anecdotal or confirmed by tests.

(4) They claim to "inhibit the progress" of emphysema, not cure it.

(5) Vis-a-vis the "Physician's Global Assessment," this was actually a "Patient's Global Assessment" because the participants themselves graded the so-called Physician's Global Assessment. Here there is a definite attempt to mislead.

It is my guess that the ingredients in the preparation may give symptomatic relief. There are plenty of alternative preparations that will do that. But halting the disease or making it regress is not credible.

I am a non-fiction writer and editor with several specialties. I have worked in the medical field.

I also suffer from Emphysema, and when I found this site, I thought it was too good to be true.

I also have been hood winked into trying Hysmeton with no result. I have also written to the company and they do not reply.  These people should be reported , but, who to?  It must be illegal to advertise something as a 100 % gaurantee and a money back after thirty days when they say it takes two months to cure you. They also say it is a cure and that is illegal too.  The pills came from Pakistan although the company is supposedly in NZ.  Alax

My husband could not catch his breath and almost died one night if I did not put on a vaporizer to help him breath . Next morning went to Dr. Riggs in Tehachipi Ca.. They did a test on him and it was confirmed that he had a real bad case of Emphysema after smoking two packs a day for over 55 years before he quit last year. The doctor gave him some blue capsuls to inhale ...it's the one advertised on t.v.. It gave him a severe , lasting headache as a side effect and he said he'd never take it again . I found this Hysmeton and out of desperation I ordered it , as I knew my husband would not survive much longer as he flat out could not breath well at all . Well It Worked !! And now he can breath...the hard thick nasty luggies he has spit up 4 or 5 times a day while taking " Hysmeton " is unbeleivable !! It absolutely does what it says and I am ordering more today ...he took it for 90 days and noticed improvement within three days . I told his doctor about it and he said there is no cure and it was all a hype ...untill they gave him another lung capacity test . The first one he had before the Hysmeton was only 58 % lung fuction ....the one last week was 85% !! I am a scheptic too ...but this stuff does work on my husband and the medical findings prove it as there just is no other explanation as he was not on medication for his lungs . He is on medication for 20 years for type 2 diabetes and also high blood pressure . There were absolutely no side affects with the Hysmeton and he took his medication too . Pat , Mojave CA.

It may not work for everybody and God knows... not all people react the same way to medicines and stuff . The instructions say it takes time and I think that because I used a cool mist vaporizor of clean water one hour a night in the bedroom ....it could be the combination of that and the Hysmeton is what made it work so quick as the vapor does put moisture in the air and that helps loosen up flem (phlegm) . This is why hospitals put people in an oxygen tents . Husband was not caughing up as much flem (phlegm) when he ran out of the Hysmeton . To each his own ...ya'll got to do your own thing ...but the truth is when you can't breath ...you do get desperate . My husband is tight with his money and it's a bear to get him to invest in anything , but this was worth it to him , and yeah it's expensive ...but that blue pill inhaler thingy was over $135 for just a 30 day supply and a bad headache to boot . You could try Hysmeton my way with a cool mist vaporizor and see if that is the key to breaking up the hard flem (phlegm) in the lungs...those doctors reports do not lie . Do not over do it on the vaporizor ... just one hour at bedtime and then take the Hysmeton in the morning with breakfast .Pat , Mojave CA.

The blue pill is spiriva and the cost without insurance is over 200 dollars. There are side effects like headaches.
I would like to see some more reports before trying Hysmeton. I have not heard of it. Where would you get it? How much is the cost?
For those who like it please keep us up dated on how it continues to work.

Guys, I am from South Africa, and here we are so used to scams that we do extensive research before you even say "Good Morning".

I have AOAD (advanced) Emphysema due to genetic Alpha One Anti-tripsine Difficiency. This unfortunately is worse than the common one (only 2% of Emphysema cases) as the general medication actually has and adverse affect. I am on Spiriva, Uniphyl and Predisone. Oxygen at night and my lung capacity is sitting around 27%. They cannot find (WHO) something to stop the regression of the condition over the past four years.

When I read this Hysmenton miracle cure, obviously through desperacy you want to try it. Please check this site:

http://onesickmother.typepad.com/my_weblog/2009/07/gordons-herbal-research-center-scam.html

These monkeys prescribe the same ingredients and recipe for anything from an ingrown toe-nail to loss of hair. I would not trust them whatsoever. Rather buy a packet of mint imperials and through your brainpower believe THIS will work, a fraction of the price!

Your choice, but if I cannot trust their product, how do I know what the longterm negative repercussions may be?

Good luck!

Yes, that bothered me as well.  The copany being in New Zealand but the package with the Hysmeton came from Pakistan.  That was the first time.  When I ordered it the second time I never received it and even though they kept saying they sent it it never arrived....They told me it was probable stuck in customs, but never returned my money either.  THIS IS A SCAM PURE AND SIMPLE.........

Is it possible that your husband's main problem is chronic bronchitis? If so, tests would vary widely depending on the degree of congestion at the time the test was taken. There are many herbs that will relieve congestion and they are not part of some new miracle cure. But the best treatment i can think of is plain old vitamin B5 in high dosages. It is a mucolytic (mucus thinner) and an anti-inflammatory. No side effects at all.

What I am thinking is that the herbs relieved the congestion so that he got a proper reading, the first test being inadvertently inaccurate. I do not believe that his ailment was turned around, only that his symptoms were alleviated. In any case, his COPD, if that is what he has, is mild.
