I have asthma and now feel like I have picked up some sort

Customer Question

I have asthma and now feel like I have picked up some sort of chest cold which frequently turns into bronchitis. A friend recommended that I check out Takuna. What is your opinion?
JA: Do you have a fever? Do you have any other existing medical conditions?
Customer: I have not checked my temperature, but have felt feverish on and off for the last two days and have a bronchial cough and tightness in my chest. I have been using my rescue inhaler, which I normally don't have to use. As far as other medical conditions, I have osteopenia and arthritis.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I can't think of anything else at the moment.

The brand name Takuna is unlikely to hurt you. The extract of Cecropia strigosa does have some anti-inflammatory and anti-asthmatic properties.

If you aren't much better by Monday you should see your medical provider.
