Eastern Medicine alternative
Hi everyone, I’m pretty new to the forums. Hope everyone is doing well today. 🙂
I joined today because recently my aunt was taken off of Esbriet (her doctor felt that her side effects were too much) and was due to go in for a chest xray and lung function tests later this month but due to Covid-19, her appointment was cancelled.
My mother spoke to her cousin in London who is a well known eastern medical doctor and recommended this medication from Korea to her. It’s called Pyunkang and is about $500 a month. She said that she had a friend in NY who had a similar diagnosis and after taking this medication for some time, she reported that she started feeling better. Of course I want my aunt to feel better. She has been taking gabapentin for cough but doesn’t seem to be helping that much. My aunt’s voice has been sounding a little coarse lately and she loves to nap often now, which she never really used to do.
I googled this medication and it according to the research, it could possibly improve her symptoms.
Does anyone have any experience with taking this? I am skeptical but the research was done by NIH.
I will leave a link here:
