In brief: Sorry

True hamman-rich pulmonary fibrosis is refractory to treatment, and if some chinese herb worked, the research piranhas at the nih would have snapped it up immediately.
"chinese herbs" are unregulated, often not what they're supposed to be, and some are deadly poisons that have produced epidemics of liver failure. I'm sorry about your lung disease but don't make it worse.
