Asthma A Disease?
Yes, severe cases of asthma are labeled as chronic inflammatory disease with obstruction or difficulty or shortness of breathing. Asthma is a chronic lung disease that causes episodes of difficult breathing. Asthma can be caused due to different reasons like allergy, colds, stress, exercise, etc. Allopathic treatments for Asthma include oral and inhaled steroids, Short or long Acting Beta Agonists, Leukotriene Modifiers, Anticholinergic and Immunomodulators. However these Allopathic treatments do not cure Asthma. They are merely a way of suppressing symptoms. Which is pretty much like any doctor who shoves prescription pills in your face. Natural remedies for Asthma embrace Homeopathic remedies including Sarcodes, and Ayurvedic herbs.
Sarcodes like OM 2 – FACTOR (OM 2 Respiratory), HPD Pneumo are potentized bioenergetic impressions of healthy organs, glands and secretions. They are believed by traditional Homeopathy to be of benefit to normal structure and function of corresponding body systems. Homeopathic remedies for Allergies can be prescribed based on the patient’s constitution. This is very effective but success generally depends on the Dr’s ability to pick the right remedy for the patient. Some of the choices include Aspidosperma; Hellaborus; Kali Carb 30-Chest; Carbo Veg 30; Oxygen; Sticta 30; Strophantus 30. Some of the Homeopathic combinations are like C10 ASTH Formula, T26 Lung Liquescence, T31 Allergy Liquescence. Some of the herbs like Vasa (Adhatoda vasica), Kantakari (Hedychium spicatum), Trikatu , Haridra (Curcuma longa), Bibhitaki (Terminalia belerica ), Tulsi (Ocimum sanctum),Yashtimadhu (Glycirrhiza glabra).
What Else Helps Cure Asthma?
Believe it or not, there are natural and SIMPLE things that can help alleviate symptoms and actually reverse your asthma problems. One of the biggest things I tell people to drink is Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV). This helps them digest, regulates stomach acid, easier bowel movements, creates more room for lungs, and 101 other great things! The other is Coconut Oil, and the ability to use it in all your cooking, rub it on your legs, hands and feet as the best moisterizer you will ever feel, the uses are practically endless on how to get coconut oil in you. Next, to really curb your asthma problems you must make Dietary Changes (remove milk/sugars/coffee). If you can eat a raw food diet for simply 3-4 weeks and watch your symptoms and issues with asthma (and probably other ones) disappear. The final thing for asthma is H2O3 therapy, a.k.a. getting rid of oxidation and putting enormous amounts of oxygen into your blood stream. Remember, NO DISEASE can live in a perfect environment suited to PREVENT virus and disease. NOTE: Viruses and disease HATE oxygen rich environments and makes it almost uninhabitable for them to thrive (and really even LIVE).
Personal Story of Asthma Defeat and Success
If your asthma is really bad, you have to change your life like I did. The whole process took about a year. I changed my diet, my amount of exercise, I started using medicinal teas, doing yoga, etc. I even changed my attitude. I would be happy to tell anyone about it, but the thing is, you really have to change your lifestyle. One or two things won’t make much difference. Anyway here is a quick list of the things I do:
Environment: Take all perfumes and artificial chemicals out of your home. Use only natural soaps and detergents and deodorants.
Diet: I became a vegetarian, I cut out all greasy food (no deep fried), I cook all my own food, I eat light. I eat Indian style, lots of lentils. Breakfast is something like fresh oatmeal with raisins and dates. Lunch is lentils with veggies, dinner is something light like rice and tofu and veggies, or a bunch of fruit in the summer. Stop eating all processed foods, no chips, no packaged anything. Stop using the microwave, give it away, only cook on the stove or oven.
Yoga: stretching and relaxation and strengthening exercises. If you body is loose and relaxed, your asthma will be less. I discovered that asthma attacks are related to panic attacks, if you can keep calm, you won’t have an asthma attack.
Teas (especially licorice): boil for ten minutes, let sit for five. Drink. You can get it commercially (try all the commercial brands of anti-asthma tea and see which one works best for you, but don’t just steep the tea, boil it). Health food stores also sell pure licorice both powdered or the raw sticks. You can grind the sticks in your coffee grinder and then boil the powder for very fresh and strong licorice tea. Peppermint tea sometimes works too. There are many India medicinal teas you can try, look up ‘Ayurveda’.
Last Tips: Laugh a lot everyday as much as you can. Avoid alcohol. Avoid bananas. When you feel an attack coming, raise your arms above your head. Walk instead of using a car. Or use a bike. Swim. Drink plenty of water. Sometimes oranges seem to stave off asthma. Get a daily / weekly regime going with exercise, food, etc.
I overcame asthma that literally made it impossible to climb the stairs of a single flight! My asthma is now so light that I no longer even refer to myself as having asthma truly!
