[YEA] 04/04/2008: kimb from Dallas, TX: "re: Chronic Asthma & Aspergillosis.
I have been suddenly left completely disabled for the last two years. Sudden onset of respiratory illness and lethargy. I'm 35 and have been unable to do even the basic of personal daily routines. I used to ride all terain 20 miles a day up north. After two years of relying on modern medicine and countless hospital stays, I have decided not to die from a pescki fungus or anything else. So I have begun taking matters in my own hands and will try anything that makes sense. I currently began double dose of DHEA for natural precursor to antinflammatory, 7 oranges a day, 2xday apple cider vinegar, copper supplement,probiotic yogurt, and 4 times daily supplement. After 3days my neighbor comment that I have color for the first time. I also have been able to get out of bed. I am going to try the peroxide and apple cider vinegar in my nebulizer and report back. I believe it will work. Make an uncomfortable environment for bacteria, kill it, get it out, and keep it out! All this without dying from side effects of prednisone, advair, and numerous others.
Thanks for your posts! Many prayers for all of you."Replies
[WARNING!] 09/19/2011: Dan from Clearwater, Florida replies: "After reading something like that I get a little worried.
Let me explain.Thirteen months ago, my girlfriend bought some white balsamic vinegar and poured about 1/4 teaspoon in her hand to sip it and check out its taste.
She ended up breathing it into her lungs and burnt them along with her voicebox. But worse, her airway closed off from anaphylactic shock and she very nearly choked to death.
Now balsamic vinegar is supposed to be 6% acetic acid (what she inhaled was higher than that - the insurance company wants to settle out of court) and ACV is generally 5%.
But the fact that kimb never checked back in with her results worries me.
I was researching nebulizer cures to try to help my girlfriend restore her lungs. Her larynx seems to have mostly healed just in the last couple of weeks (she sounds a whole lot less froggy) but she's still not back to 100% on breathing and it's been over a year. The pulmonologist said it was a chemically induced asthma condition (she had no history of breathing problems before this.)
So you might want to go slow if you're trying something new and untested."
[YEA] 01/24/2009: Cindy from Astoria, Oregon: "In desperation I tried turmeric for a very large and painful abcess I had on my inner thigh. I've had problems with a boil there before and took 1 teaspoon of turmeric in water or milk 3 times a day. Day one the pain started to subside greatly... By day two it was shrinking and by day three it was about 75% smaller!! I'm amazed and relived BUT what I found to be extraordinary is that I noticed I have used my rescue inhaler for asthma only once in the time I started taking the turmeric. I am on an oral medication for asthma but still must use my rescue inhaler several times a day. The relief in my asthma is truly a mircle treatment for me. I plan to use turmeric daily for asthma and will play around with the dosage to see what will keep it at bay for me. thank you Earth Clinic!!"
[YEA] 07/09/2008: Catherine from Chicago, USA: "I had terrible asthma and respiratory problems all winter. In the late Spring my doctor told me to start using more B-vitamins. Then I read that B-6 can help asthma (at a later date) and realized that since I have been using a good B Vitamin complex my asthma has been much more manageable, even though it is more humid now, so I have started taking a little extra B-6 and am noticing a difference. I got out my old Prevention and home remedy books and saw B-6 mentioned for asthma there, also. Asthmatics, take note - there are more natural ways of handling asthma than with steroids and chemicals - already I am not needing my emergency inhaler - not for a month now - and am using my nebulizer a LOT less! Yay!"
[YEA] 08/04/2006: Kerrin from Denver, CO: "One year ago, I had a bout of the most severe asthma I have had in years. After a trip to the ER and several hundred $$$ in meds over 4 months, I was determined to find natural substitutes for them. I found Vitamin B12 here. I bought a 1000 mcg. sublingual tablet (with 400 of Folic acid) that I began taking every night at bedtime, and can report an amazing decrease in all asthma symptoms over the last year. I have even taken one at the onset of labored breathing and had the attack subside within 20 minutes!!! I am now totally drug free and so grateful to all who wrote about B12. It is a miracle. Also, in the process of the above, I began an anti-allergy regimen of 2 g of Pantothenic Acid, 2 g of Vitamin C, and a Quercetin capsule in divided dose 2x a day. Goodbye to antihistimines! 1 mg. of Vit. C alone has stopped an allergy attack for me as well as other family members. Hope others can find the relief I have!"Replies
[YEA] 09/03/2011: Chris from Vaughn, Montana replies: "So from late August through Mid-September my asthma is at its worst. This year has been better but not according to my standards. Every night I would have to us my inhaler which is not acceptable to me. After reading through this website I came across Vitamin B and decided to try it. Incredibly my asthma has improved. I am taking Vitamin B-complex daily and I haven't had to use my inhaler since starting. This worked for me but I can't guaruntee it will work for everyone."
[YEA] 02/10/2006: Kevin from NY, NY: "For the past 2 years I have been going to an allergist and a pulmonary specialist. Neither has been able to cure my asthma which was getting progressively worse. All either doctor would do was continue to prescribe medication and keep upping the dosage. I then spoke to a holistic nutrtitionist and she told me to stop eating dairy and to take vitamin B12, Magnesium and a liver cleansing supplement. Within 2 weeks my symptoms began to subside and stopped my prescribed medications. I now feel better than I have in the past 2 years. I am still not 100% but I feel myself getting everyday. I can't say this will work for everyone but for some who prescribed medicine doesn't work I think it is worth a try. It worked for me."
[YEA] Kyriacos from Nicosia, Cyprus: "Since you have done me a good turn by introducing me to 'apple cider vinegar', which has totally revived a very ailing health ravaged by cholesterol over the last couple of years, I would like to return the favour, which I hope may benefit others logging unto your site.
I have totally overcome asthma that I was told was incurable.
It came about within only six months after including in my vitamin regime a small and very cheap vitamin called; B12 (dosage 5ìg daily). I only eat meat once in a while, so I read that a diet short on meat consumption should consider taking a B12 vitamin supplement, which is why I began to include it, in my vitamin regime.
But I am not a medical expert and medical authorities and asthma foundations have both failed to follow up on my claims, so I do not know if B12 is an outright cure for asthma. And about the same time that I began supplementing with vitamin B12 I also made amendments to the location of my accommodation. I moved from life by the sea to deeper inland and city life. And chose to live in an old style house, where the bathroom is separate from living room/bedroom, which implies both have doors leading to outside of the house. It implies that you have to go outside the house of one part to get into the other.
In modern terms that may not be an appealing prospect, but there are real benefits in living in old Cypriot style, house. In summer it is cool and in winter it retains the heat. But the major advantage is that with the bathroom completely separate from living room/bedroom it implies that you get no humidity filling up the rest of the house after bathing. And the combination of moving away from humidity filled environment (by the sea) and house where the bathroom was in the house allowing humidity to freely fill other rooms of the house, may have played a determinant role in wiping out, my asthma. But I do not know which one was responsible for releasing me from this horrendous disease; whether it was the combination of moving away from the sea and choosing to live in an old house, where the bathroom is not a part of the rest of the house, or whether it was B12 vitamin inclusion, or a combination of all those. As I said I am not an expert so I cannot be sure which one of those combinations is a cure for asthma. And medical authorities and asthma foundations don't want to know.
It is also relevant to know that I got a little acquainted with the disease, by reading what foods and beverages to also avoid. So I did things right generally, but the disease was only completely wiped out soon after I began including B12 in my vitamin regime and made the accommodation adjustments, aforementioned.
It has to also be noted that while I had asthma for many years it never reached a critical stage. And my own phasing out of asthma inhalers was gradual. And never did I suppress from using the inhalers, whenever there was an inevitable need for those. So while I no longer have any symptoms of asthma whatsoever and no need for use of inhalers, this was a stage I had reached gradually, by doing all the right things generally.
It more notably implies that the vitamin B12 regime and amendments to life style suggested here for dealing with asthma do not at any time become alternatives to the medication individuals at a critical stage of asthma are more greatly reliant on.
And please do not follow on any tips I give here on this site from my own vitamin regime experiences, without first consulting a competent practitioner (doctor or nutritionist)."
[NAY] Brian from Newark, OH: "I feel that it's good to give both sides -- I can say that what works for one person is NOT necessarily apropriate for another. One user indicated that taking vitamin B-12 helped his asthma -- it didn't mine. I take 1 Vitamin B-12 lozenge sub-lingually daily. The dosage is 5000mcg (about 83,000% the RDA). I also take a B-12 + B-Complex vitamin daily, along with the mulit-vitamin - it raises my B-12 intake to about 100,000% of the recommended daily allowance. What has this done for my asthma? Squat!!! (Although, I'm more mentally alert, and I have more energy)."
[YEA] 05/28/2006: Brian from Newark, OH: "I take 500mg vitamin c (plus a multi-vitamin) daily -- it helps with the inflammation in my body. My ankle feels better (I have a fractured talus, with avascular necrosis) but it also helps with my breathing. NOTHING is going to CURE my asthma -- I'm not that naive -- but, some things help make it less an issue for me . . . vitamin C is one of those things."
[YEA] 04/24/2006: Jazlyn from Raleigh, NC: "I've been taking C-1000's in large doses everyday for about 4 months and I used to have to use my inhaler every single day and now I never need to use it. If you take about 5000mg-10,000mg a day for a week or two it should start to help alot, then you can drop down to 3000mg a day."
Vitamin C, 3% Hydrogen Peroxide Inhalation
[YEA] 08/15/2007: Blanca from San Francisco, California: "My friend in El Salvador found out that her kids had asthma. The doctor gave her kids some medication that was literally poison for such small kids....I told her about this page that I had found, and told her about the inhalation procedure, she did not think twice, the next day she bought it and came home with it. She gave it to the kids and waited, within 0 minutes the kids got out of the bed, started walking around the house without getting exhausted, the sound on their chests was gone within the next day! On the second day the kids did not have anything,nothing! She took them to the on the third day and he assumed that the medication had "healed" them, she told the doctor that she had suspended the medication already for 2 days and that she had given them 3000 milligrams of vitamin c (on the night I spoke to her) and that the next day she had given them the Hydrogen Peroxide....The doctor scratched his head, his face, and not admitting failure said that the medication must have worked a little. This thing is a miracle, a miracle, my friend says that the kids on the second day looked happy, animated and hungry. No more asthma attacks. Thank you very much for this page."Replies

Vocal Cord Dysfunction
[YEA] 08/08/2007: Nancy from Ellis, KS: "Last year, I found a lot of very valuable information on your site, and as a result took several steps to improve my health. I had asthma as a child, and it still occurs occasionally when triggered by outdoor allergies. Last year I had major asthma problems all year, which was uncharacteristic for me. Allergy/asthma medications did not help - in fact I got progressively worse. After being diagnosed with reflux (which I now believe was caused by these medications), I tried reflux medicines, and again, continued to get worse. After viewing your site, I managed to get off of all the asthma and reflux medications, and have used ACV with good results. However, this year, I began experiencing asthma again, and have since learned about Vocal Cord Dysfunction (also called Paradoxical Vocal Cord Movement). I think your readers would benefit from considering this as a possible cause of their breathing difficulties. I've been told that it is actually rather common, and while there are specialists who know about it, it is not yet well known by the medical profession."
07/26/2010: Tom from Regina, Sk: "Yamoa Powder For Asthma
I notice this remedy is not anywhere on this site, and certainly not under Asthma or Hay Fever/allergies.
It was introduced into Britain in the mid-1990's by a Ghanaian immigrant, a Mr. Yamoa, and supposedly is used there quite widely. Britain, likely due to its huge congestion (61 million in a tiny island) has a large percentage of people with asthma or allergies/respiratory ailments. The actual plant extract powder comes from the bark of a species of tree in Ghana. It is sold in capsule form in health stores. Also, there is no need to take it for life prophylacticly. It balances the immune system so that the asthma attacks stop (or the allergies/hay fevers). One will know within the first 2 months of taking the therapeutic dosage if it has worked. There's retail sellers on the Internet, but I can't vouch for any. Just use a search engine."
[BETTER BUT NOT CURED] 08/29/2010: Tenderfoot from Las Cruces, Nm Usa replies: "Hello Tom - This is to let you know how much I appreciate your post about Yamoa Powder. When I read about it I right away went to the web site and read the testimonials and bought myself a bottle as a last resort. I'm happy to say I'm at least 70% better now after less than 4 weeks! At the time I read your post I was considering admitting myself to some kind of care facility. I felt so bad, taking baby steps to reach my inhaler and using furniture to support myself. It's such a good feelinig to be able to take a good breath now and move around freely. I'm glad you took the time to let us know about this wonderful supplement, it's so important to share information where we can all benefit. Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart."
08/31/2010: Tina from Princeton, N J replies: "Hi Tenderfoot, Glad to know that your asthma has improved with the use of yamoa powder. Could you post the name of the website where you bought the powder? Thanks!"
09/01/2010: Tenderfoot from Las Cruces, Nm Usa replies: "Thank you, Tina. The web site I used was http://www.yamoapowder.com/page.html and they are in the UK. It is the official web site for yamoa powder."
[YEA] 04/19/2012: "Holistic Healing - Asthma Answers www.yogajournal.com/health/127
Excellent article. Clearly described practices to reverse/improve asthma. Tried and tested. No expense. Very empowering, I highly recommend, they worked for me."
[YEA] 08/11/2006: Nikki from London: "I suggest that people with asthma should do excercises by a man called Swami Ramdev Ji... You can visit a website with breathing excercises which really are useful. You should do the excercises daily in the morning before having breakfast or any food. The website: knowyoga.org/tiki-index.php?page=Pranayama
BUT REMEMBER: DO NOT PUSH YOURSELF TO DO THESE EXCERCISES ANY MORE THAN YOU CAN HANDLE, START OFF SLOWLY!! IF YOU CAN NOT DO AN EXCERCISE THEN LEAVE IT AN MOVE ONTO SOMETHING ELSE YOU CAN DO."
