I suffered deeply with stage four sarcoidosis which progressed to idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis (IPF). I was hospitalized eighteen times in three years, mostly with flare ups and pneumonia. For me, the chronic widespread pain takes my breath away more than the disease itself. At times the pain is so severe I find it difficult to do anything. My life was gradually coming to an end, until I saw World Herbs Clinic on google during my research for alternative help for IPF.. I knew health is wealth thus I decided to give it a try, thank God I did. I got the Lungs disease formula four working days after placing an order. OMG I started noticing change in my breath after one month of taking the herbs formula, My IPF was completely reversed after THREE months of usage. Now i’m happy and free from this deadly disease. I recommend World Herbs Clinic for Lungs disease patients..
