In brief: Licorice.

Licorice is one that is mentioned a lot, and is used as an expectorant.
Now whether or not it works better than typical COPD medications - there is no good data. Meaning no one has tested it rigorously. Can it hurt? Probably not, but there are concerns for it causing high blood pressure at massive quantities. It's a good conversation to have with your doctor though!
