Use Nature Instead of Drugs to Treat and Relieve Asthma

Cancer's Natural Enemy

(The Best Years in Life) More than 22 million Americans suffer from the chronic inflammatory disease asthma and the number is steadily growing, especially among children. Asthma symptoms include airflow obstruction, chest tightness and shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing. Severe asthma attacks can be fatal. Mainstream medicine treats asthma symptoms with drugs and medical inhalers, some of which have side effects so dangerous that class actions suits have been filed against the makers. Nature offers a number of safer options for relieving and preventing asthma as well as healing and supporting the lungs.

The ever increasing toxic load man is causing is likely a huge contributor to the increase in asthma, as is the decreasing nutritional value of our foods. Asthma is generally triggered by either bronchial infections, an allergic reaction, or a lung irritant such as smoke or fumes. Besides toxins allergens and irritants, items to avoid to prevent asthma attacks include milk and dairy (which causes allergic reactions and is also mucous forming), gluten and acetaminophen.

One extremely effective way to beat asthma is nebulizing with colloidal silver, lobelia extract and mullein extract (5 parts colloidal silver to 1 part each of lobelia and mullein) in order to help bring up mucous, heal the lungs and eliminate any pathogens present. Adding 1 part mullein can make the treatment even more effective. Mullein is an antispasmodic and anti-inflammatory herb which also fights respiratory viruses and aids in lung healing.  Click on the image to the right for an excellent deal on a nebulizer kit.

Mullein leaves can also be rolled and smoked or else chopped up and smoked in a pipe for almost instant relief during a bout of asthma.

One often effective asthma remedy known as “garlic syrup” can be made as follows:

Separate and peel the cloves of 3 garlic bulbs. Simmer them in a non-aluminum pan with 2 cups of water. When the garlic cloves are soft and there's about a cup of water left in the pan, remove the garlic and put in a jar. Then, add 1 cup of vinegar and 1/4 cup of honey to the water that's left in the pan, boiling the mixture until it is syrupy. Pour the syrup over the garlic in the jar. Cover the jar and let it stand overnight. Swallow 1 - 2 cloves of garlic with a teaspoon of the syrup every morning on an empty stomach.

Garlic can also be used by pressing the juice from raw garlic and then mixing 10 – 15 drops in warm water and taking internally.

Another asthma remedy calls for mixing 1/4 cup of onion juice with 1 tablespoon of raw organic honey and 1/8 tablespoon of black pepper.

The following herbs are often used in various combinations in Chinese herbal medicine for clearing mucous, supporting the immune system and repairing the lungs (the supplement
ClearLungs Extra Strength from our website sponsor Utopia Silver combines all of the below ingredients - and you can get it for 15% off if it isn't on sale by using our group discount code LR001):

*Dong Quai
*Morus root
*Chinese asparagus root


Two other items frequently used in Chinese medicine are the herb astralagus and the medicinal reishi mushroom. Both reduce allergies and build the immune system and the reishi mushroom inhibits histamine production.

Hot or cold tea made from wild cherry tree bark is a popular asthma remedy in India. Likewise, basil leaf tea consumed throughout the day has been effective in relieving asthma.

Endives, celery, carrots, and spinach in various combinations have also been reported to work wonders for some asthmatics. Combine any combination of the vegetables and put them into a juicer. One or two glasses daily are recommended.

Black coffee as hot and as strong as you can stand it can help open up lungs and airways and ward off an asthma attack.

Other items which may be beneficial are:

*Turmeric (curcumin)
*Omega-3 fatty acids
*Eucalyptus (inhaled and used as a soothing lozenge)
*Chamomile tea
