What cure can you have for a patient that is on a g-tube and has difficulty swallowing that has extreme problems with phlegm? We have seen several specialists to try and cure this annoying problem. We have tried humidifiers, silver water, flonase, upper gi, lower gi, ENT, pulmonologist, speech therapist, PCP and as many health care professionals that we know. Any assistance would help.

Eat about 6 three times a day, or get a herbal tincture made up of them and take a teaspoon three times a day.
