An elderly friend of mine with asthma began having an asthma attack at another friend's house. (She's wound up in the hospital due to them several times before.) That friend quickly made her some 'Cayenne Tea' & got her to drink it all down ... and the asthma attack disappeared! Cayenne is excellent as a remedy for multiple health problems!

I have stopped wheat before, which alleviated my asthma, but was extremely difficult to maintain.

Recently, to better my health, I eliminated processed sugar, and my asthma completely disappeared! I didn't need my inhaler any more! Shocking! After looking it up, I found medical resources stating that sugar is inflammatory and contributes to asthma. They were right!!! Now, to keep up with no processed sugar ;) (or rarely having sugar)

Hi Dan, we have had improvement with my husband's breathing using heparin filters in each room to clean out the air, I replaced the carpets with Farbo flooring (hypoallergenic and doesnt grow mold or put toxic fumes out gassing into the air and had to look up local suppliers that carried it and could order it). We had to eliminate dairy and wheat from the diet and improvement has been happening one day at a time. Not easy given past fire smoke and mold sensitivities.🙏

I've had asthma for as long as I can remember. I had been using something every day for it. I started using black seed oil in 2020 and in about a week I was no longer using my rescue inhaler. I can breathe without it.


Black Seed Oil

I ordered a food allergen test and found things I were allergic to but didn't realize it. The allergens were expressing themselves as severe lung issues. My question for you is how much black seed oil do you take? I have been buying high quality oil liquid here in Canada but it has never seemed to help noticeably. I'm 69 and worked in heavy industrial polluted environments for most of my life. Any help is appreciated.

Just made an account especially for this. Blackseed oil works for asthma. I can breathe again and I had severe asthma. Somedays I could not even walk up the stairs. When I did I had to lay down and rest. It was that bad. You could hear me breathe. I started using blackseed oil because I read online someone healed their asthma with it. So I tried, because I was desperate, because I had to use a lot of steroids/inhalers. After a few days I noticed a difference. I could breathe deeper, and breathing/inhaling wasn't that hard anymore. I use it with Curcumma/blackpepper capsules.

Just try don't give up. Astma can heal.

I was diagnosed 1st w/ asthma, then COPD, & asbestosis a few years ago. IMO the asbestosis causes the breathing issues. I've tried a number of things for asthma, including Yamoa capsules. Yamoa is the bark of an african gum tree variety. About 30% of those taking Yamoa for asthma have excellent results. Unfortunately I'm not one of them.

The thing that seems to have helped me the most is N-acetyl-L-cysteine (N-A-C) Some sources say asthma is a glutathione deficiency. I still have breathing issues similar to asthma from asbestosis & COPD. But I hardly ever have serious breathing issues unless I have a COPD exacerbation. N-A-C is pretty inexpensive, I paid $13 for 600 capsules, 600mg ea.
I usually buy 3 bottles at a time, shipping was $6. That was at ilifeline DOT com.

N-A-C is very inportant for glutithione production so I take 2 caps twice daily. In my case some amino acids are helpful, including l-glycine.
I'm 67 & it seems my digestion is off so I take Super Enzymes, Dr. Berg's Gallbladder Support, Ox Bile & Tudca. I should add that not eating sugar or anything the body converts to sugar, & especially processed foods is very important, I eat keto, very low carb & I fast so I've lost ~100lb net.

These things helped me, especially the N-A-C, so I wanted to share. Have a GREAT day, Neighbor!

I have the exact issue; dairy and corn really make my breathing difficult. I have turned to nondairy substitutes like almond milk and I'm doing much better!


Hydrogen Peroxide
Posted by Pam E. (South Western California) on 09/19/2022 94 posts

One may not have time for nebulizing the H2O2, but probably can find enough time to breath it in direct....

Many use 3% in a mister, & spray that into the mouth several times *while* taking a deep breath.

(Tried *that* but instantly began coughing ea time.)

Then I tried spraying 3% H2O2 into my mouth, allowing it to bubble / release oxygen in there *while* I carefully take deep breaths through those bubbles & into my lungs (leaving the bubbles in my mouth), then breathing out through my nose ...

Repeat IN thru the mouth, OUT thru the nose ... until the bubbles stop forming from the release of oxygen from the water & into a gas ... Then spray more in if you want to continue the treatment.

It seems I experience the same benefits reported by those who actually inhale the mist of 3% H2O2.

(When I developed a very strong bout of vertigo [unable to walk as everything appeared to be constantly spinning around the room] with Covid-19 [I also had a mild fever, short & rapid breathing, loss of energy] ... I sprayed it directly in my ear & let it bubble in there while my husband tucked me in, & I fast fell asleep.... 3 hours later I woke up with ZERO symptoms! )

My asthma completely disappeared when I followed a No Starch Diet (which I did for about 10 years) to treat my autoimmune disease Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS). A bunch of other immune problems also eased eg iritis, dermatitis, and also peripheral joint inflammation not directly associated with AS.

The No Starch Diet is comparable to Paleo, but a bit stricter:

- No grains

- No dairy

- No legumes, potatoes, yams as all are starchy

- Yes: meat, fish

- Yes: walnuts, hazelnuts, pecans, brazil nuts ..

- Yes: carrots, cauliflower, cucumber, lettuce, tomato

- Yes: most fruit .. except no to banana and stone fruits

After eating Natto (Japanese cultured soy beans) I was able to resume eating starchy foods without the asthma recurring (except curiously have to avoid peanuts, and not too much cheese). Only in extreme conditions did the asthma return eg a cold causing me to cough a lot and then maybe some asthma until the cold abated.


Keto Diet

For the last 12 months, I have found that when I am on a keto diet I am able to completely control my asthma and even eat some broccoli, cabbage etc, however, if I slip up and fall out of keto my asthma will come straight back. The keto diet controls some of the major inflammatory mechanisms affecting the lungs. Finding this out has been a major relief for me and the keto diet can be very satisfying once you get around the learning curve a bit. I hope you or somebody else finds this to be helpful. Cheers Ralph


Allergy Connection

Hi Rachel, Just saw your post. I too am sensitive to sulphur both good and bad types to the point that salbutamol is no longer able to control my asthma. I have avoided corticosteroids use up to this point. For the last 12 months, I have found that when I am on a keto diet I am able to completely control my asthma and even eat some broccoli, cabbage etc, however, if I slip up and fall out of keto my asthma will come straight back.

MSM

I have been in the healing profession (practitioner, researcher, advocate) for 30 years, nothing comes close to my experience with MSM, I am so sorry it took this long to try it. My chronic asthma gone in 3 days!! On albuterol for almost 40 years. I am in shock.

Some side effects which I consider to be cleansing symptoms: nausea, sleeplessness and skin breakouts, but I did start on a high dose of 20 grams a day. After three weeks no more 'side effects'.

My energy has greatly increased, I feel quite euphoric every day now. The only time I had that kind of euphoria was by drinking three glasses of organic green juices a day. I think people on heavy medications, mercury fillings, toxic diet are going to have more difficulties with it, so building up from a small dose with extra vitamin C and plenty of pure water will help.

The other supplement that really helps is Vitamin D3, I take 16,000iu liquid daily, no colds for two years now and my chronic bronchitis of 20 years has disappeared. Some years it was mild others, severe triggering serious asthma attacks. So the combination of Vitamin and MSM has been miraculous for me. This great website encouraged me to try MSM. Thanks so much.

p.s. Brushing my teeth with MSM has whitened them.


Kelp, Brazil Nuts
Posted by Mark (berlin) on 11/09/2021

Hi,

May I ask please which brand of kelp did you take and when you took it in relation to meals(i.e. before a meal on empty stomach or with a meal or after a meal in the morning)? There are lots of kelp supplements on the market which are contaminated with heavy metals. The one you took obviously is clean.

Also, from where did you buy the brazil nuts, were they in their shells? most brazil nuts are rancid on the market... ;(

Thank you.


Turmeric

Yes, I can attest that turmeric does help a lot with asthma. I have had this condition for 5 years now, and I always returned to this yellow powder for relief when I needed it. Sometimes it works very well, like almost as effective as medicine, other times its effect is lower.

Me personally, I usually take one teaspoon of turmeric powder, mixed with water + add a pinch of black pepper for better absorption. It helps, it really does. But I never used it for a long time treatment cause, honestly, it tastes horrible. But it's natural and has possibly no side effects. I would recommend reading more about it for those who want to try it, it's not supposed to be over-used, just be informed.

How much aloe vera do you eat? You mentioned one fleshy leaf. Would you say it's like half a cup worth, or more like a few Tablespoons?

Nebulizing liquid Glutathione that you get from a compounding pharmacy (need a prescription) has stopped asthma in a few people I know.

Hi,

Which brand of kelp tablet you took and which exact brand of brazil nut you took? Could you please provide links to the exact products you took?

Do you still take them?

Thank you


Vitamin E, Cod Liver Oil, Vitamin C

I had bad asthma that could last up to 17 days using prescribed meds. And one day I was given a remedy, & within a year, my asthma went away. The remedy is ...

Take:

  • 2 vitamin E 400 IU,
  • 2 cod liver oil capsules, and
  • 2 vitamin C (500 MG) tablets.

I took them with food, 3 times a day, when I was very sick with asthma, for a year. I stopped taking them when my asthma went away, & started taking them, again, whenever I have problems with it.

My brother, had very bad sinus problems, & this same remedy, above, helped him get better.

Blessings!

I can confirm. I have asthma 4 years now. I have used salt inhalation therapy, bought the inhaler and everything. It does nothing. I threw out the salt inhaler.


K2, D3, Zinc

Vitamin K2 MK7 + Vitamin D3 + Zinc cures Asthma!

Researches have found the cure to asthma and it is an ostheoporosis medicine!

https://www.cardiff.ac.uk/news/view/96649-researchers-hugely-exciting-asthma-discovery

Basically what they discovered is that asthma is linked to the Calcium metabolism. 99% of the calcium is present in bones and teeths. Anywhere else Calcium is present it causes problems: vascular deterioration that causes heart and brain problems, artritis when it goes to articulations, wrinkles when it goes to the skin, etc.

But nature have its natural Calcium GPS called Vitamin K2 MK7! Vitamin D3 absorbs calcium in the intestin to the blood, but it is K2 that takes it from the blood to the right place: bones and teeths. The first asthma symptom is a result of the accumulation of calcium in the periphery of the body: the skin.

Years before the first asthma crisis almost always there is a strong dermatitis resulting from calcium accumulation. Then years later that calcium will end in vital organs like lungs causing bronchospasm and alkalosis in the blood (buteyko method helps a bit as it balances the alkalized blood with excess calcium). Calcium in lungs could also help build homes for bacterias like Chlamydia pneumoniae. K2 MK7 is a very rare nutrient nowadays, even harder to find in a vegetarian diet (although this diet can also be lower on calcium). K2 MK7 metabolism is related to many other nutrients but mostly D3 and Zinc. If those are also defficient, K2 MK7 won't be able to do its job.

My son had 3 severe asthma crisis that led us to emergency, and many others that were administered at home through glucocorticoids, butheyko method and other things. As K2 MK7 suplementation started my son was in the middle of an crisis.

The crisis was quickly reverted. Now after 3 months of taking at least 400mcg K2 + 5000ui D3 + 50mg zinc 4 to 7 days a week, his is far away from an asthma crisis and his skin is slowly recovering to a completely healthy state.

It takes time until the calcium spread through the body to be catch by Vitamin K2. High doses of K2 have no toxicity recorded on rats, but it *must* come with higher doses of D3 and other related nutrients.


Vitamin C
Posted by Paracelsus (Orlando, Fl) on 07/09/2020 47 posts

I read a review on Amazon for liposomal (fat soluble) vitamin C and saw a few people who stated that it cured their asthma. Normal vitamin C taken in large doses gets flushed out of the body quickly since it is water soluble. It can also cause diarrhea. This is not the case with liposomal vitamin C.

Liposomal vitamin C is the next best thing to IV vitamin C. Vitamin C has been shown to cure or ameliorate many disease conditions. I take it daily for its immune boosting function and also in conjunction with niacinamide to keep my arthritis at bay.

I think we should never allow ourselves to think that something isn't curable. As the great physician Paracelsus said, "There are no incurable diseases, only incurable patients".


Mimosa Pudica Seed

I have asthma and have tried every natural remedy over the years. I cut out dairy and processed foods and then went to a plant based diet. This did help some but then I found a product called Mimosa Pudica Seed. This is a gut scrubber and Eliminates parasites. This was a game changer for me and I was able to get off my inhaler. Your health is in your gut. 80-90 of your immune system is in your gut. So gut health is the key! So if you work on you on your gut health you can reverse chronic disease. Most people eat the standard American diet (processed foods, wheat sprayed with glyphosate, fast food, fried foods etc.)and heart disease, cancer, and autoimmunity are epidemic.

Another excellent product is Well of life, they have a bundle which includes Digestive enzymes, Probiotic and Fulvic Acid. When taken for 3-6 months can heal your leaky gut and improve or eliminate autoimmunity and get your health back.
