Wow! I have never heard that FreckleFace. I wonder how true that is. It would seem to me though that oxygen would be less harmful (and more natural) than those medications he is taking for relief. I am pretty new to all this though. So certainly not an authority.
I have been using Spiriva recently, in addition to Albuterol, and while Albuterol is quite helpful, I have yet to see any notable positive effects from Spiriva. I have oxygen too, but rarely use it, as it doesn't really seem to help much. I have no experience with Advair though.
