Keto Diet

5 out of 5 stars

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

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.

Hello Braulio, thank you for this post. I know it's been a long time but a response would be truly appreciated. I just need to know how old your son was and how he is doing now. Thanks in advance.


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. For 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 as 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.

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!


Salt Pipe Inhaler
Posted by Charity (faithville, Us) on 12/17/2020

Asthma is interesting.....the stress hormone cortisol your body makes to run from the bear can cause a mineral hormone and water imbalance. To alert you to this imbalance your body will produce histamine. Histamine creates lots of health drama, like itching, runny nose, watery eyes, anxiety, a cough, heart irregularities, and many other problems like breathing . Dr. Batmanghelidj wrote about how he helped asthma patients by balancing water and minerals salts to stop histamine production. It can take up to six months to slowly increase water and minerals to rehydrate a dehydrated body. Go slow. Blessings, Charity

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 44 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".


Antifungal Supplements and Diet

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.

MSM helps asthma

I've never posted a review on this site, but this is worth writing about! Had to start slowly, because 1000 mg caused drowsiness...but my peak flow went from 400 to 575 after 1 week!! That is life changing! So for asthma and allergies this is a keeper. Now I'm still only taking a 250 mg dose, 1/4 of a tablet, with those results.


Antifungal Supplements and Diet

I was born with asthma even died a couple of times as a child, my mother had to give adrenaline shots till I was 19 years old. We moved out of the San Francisco house into a brand new house in Pacifica. My asthma improved immensely. I believe the San Francisco house was filled with mold and the new house wasn't. Then when I was about 19 years old I got it and supplements and herbs and improve my diet.

Over the years it would get better with diet and then get worse with diet. This past spring was one of the most intense experiences. I was on too many medications and I was not on the right foods in my diet, my asthma really bad.

In the early morning hours searching on Earthclinic.com I found a comment that asthma was fungus based. The recommendation was to take oil of oregano 2 to 4 dropper full‘s per day! I had some in the cabinet so I started taking it and sure enough, I started getting better and getting relief with my asthma.

I went down the rabbit hole Searching for anti-fungal diet and supplements. I found Doug Kaufman wrote a bunch of books on it has a TV show podcast Facebook podcast community for support.

Then I took a prescription drug called NyStaten to kill the fungus even stronger along with herbal remedies and diet But the detox was too strong and I ended up with extremely itchy scalp so I stopped taking the NyStaten and I am back onto the antifungal diet with oil of oregano and olive leaf.

I am posting that asthma and allergies can be illuminated, reduced and healed. All from oil of oregano and olive leaf with an antifungal diet which means no carbs no sugar's no alcohol. Asthma and allergies are fungal yeast or mold based.

Many diseases are fungus yeast mold parasites causing diabetes cancer and a whole other list of conditions. It is upsetting that our medical system has us on all these drugs that were making me angry depressed crazy and not healing my condition or educating me that my foods were feeding the fungus.

I could barely walk up a flight of stairs over this past winter and spring. Once getting on the antifungal diet and taking the oil of oregano I was able to almost run up a flight of steps for the first time in years easily. Now I'm starting all over again to regain that and improve it more and more.

I hope this post of information will help you as well.

I realize that I am very late in responding to Diane's aloe post below from 2009, but I only just read it and I wanted to share my experience with treating asthma with Aloe Vera. I have been using Aloe Vera off and on when needed for a couple of years now and have been totally symptom-free. Prior to that, I was on 2 prescription medications, taking them faithfully every day. The aloe I take twice a day is your regular run-of-the-mill household plant, although it loves the bright indirect light conditions and has grown to be huge. I choose a leaf that is big and fleshy and cut off the pointed ribs on both sides. Then I separate the two pieces of skin, exposing the juice and gel inside, which I scrape either with a spoon into a small bowl or with my teeth straight into my mouth. I find the taste to be clean and refreshing, not bitter at all.

Also, my dogs and cat regularly bite chunks of the leaves off. I hope this is helpful, in that you do not need to have a special plant to achieve positive results. Blessings, Flower's Mom

Iodine

5 out of 5 stars

Hello Earth Clinic,

I have been reading this website for years and have discovered many wonderful cures over the years. This is really the best resource for natural cures for everything!

I had childhood asthma that went away around the age of 10-12. I always had rescue inhalers and had about one asthma attack per year usually from exposure to animal dander but I didn't consider it a problem. When I was pregnant with my daughter at the age of 29 the asthma came back. I figured it was just a symptom of pregnancy and would go away. When she was born the asthma actually got worse and my doctor put me on the daily prevention inhaler as well as my rescue inhaler. I've never been one to take medications not even aspirin for headaches because I go on this website first and follow the advice I find here.

I'm posting this because I tried many of the cures for asthma here and nothing worked, but I've finally been asthma free for 2 weeks by starting Dr. Brownstein's Iodine Protocol. When I asked my doctor why my asthma would get worse during pregnancy and after the birth and then a LONG time after birth as well he just said "pregnancy does weird things to your body". It makes me so angry that he wouldn't test my hormone and thyroid levels at that point knowing that I had a pregnancy (or hormonal) related issue. I have symptoms of hyper and hypothyroidism but I don't fit into either category. From research online I've found that this points to hashimoto's so I started to look for cures for hashimoto's instead of curing my asthma, because as I discovered asthma is a symptom of hashimoto's.

From the first or second day that I started the iodine protocol I didn't need either of my inhalers anymore. I still get a bit of tightness in my chest but not enough to take my rescue inhaler. I'm shocked sometimes when I take a deep breath expecting lots of wheezing but all I get is a huge amount of air!

If you want to try this I would suggest that you read Dr. Brownstein's iodine book because it is a very specific amount of certain supplements being Iodine, Selenium, Vit C and Magnesium and you slowly increase your dosage of Iodine because it can cause detox reactions. It makes me wonder if asthma isn't just a Iodine or Selenium deficiency? I was taking Vitamin C and magnesium before the iodine and still having asthma so I don't think it's a vit c or magnesium deficiency.

You'll want to read the book because there's also a huge iodine controversy with some doctors prescribing it without the selenium which makes thyroid issues worse, then other doctors tell their patients to stay away from it including natural sources such as seaweed even though it's the one thing that the patient really needs.

I know this is a long post but I hope this info helps even just one person who is suffering from asthma.

Hi there Dr Ted,

I'm writting to you on behalf of my wife who has Asma quite severly. She's had some scary Asma attacks due to allergies mostly and these days more often if she walks to fast or over exerts herself but a about a month ago it got really bad had to take her to the doc to get Meds and they put her on a nebuliser apparently not her first time either and she's always got her blue Asma pump with her which provides momentary relief but the Meds being antibiotics and some allergy Meds provided some relieve but not much, last season when I got this bad I tried to get her to eat healthier and made her beetroot smoothies which seem to help a bit but this year it's it's back with a vengeance and she's eating healthy avoiding gluten and milk but still little relief, so I started doing some research and found the one minute cure book online and started her off on the 35‰ food grade diluted down to 3% with the 1:11 ratio which makes 12 parts in total in a nasel spray bottle inhaler which she didn't take too very well as it makes her cough but does provide some relieve. then I came across earth clinic and saw you post and others on the humidifier with 1‰HP, 2‰ sea salt and about 5‰ xylitol in purified water, this worked better the first week, the wheezing of her chest eased up a lil but the cough is still there and when she does cough the chest really tightens up.

now we in the second week same formular but she only uses it at night and helps us both sleep better cause of almost no coughing at night now but during the day it still seems to flare up with cough that bring up no flem or very little got her some tissue salts no.8 no.6 and no.9 and some combin assist tissue salts for allergies as well to try loosen the flem but not much coming up so far to day she did mention there was little steaks of blood in some of the flem she managed to cough up. This is a bit concerning but I hope is positive but I would really like to cure her as she's over weight at the moment as well but can't do any form of exercise.

I read a post mentioning fulvic acid curing Asma wanted to ask you if this mite work rid us of this ailment for good. Cause it feels like I've tried everything allergy Meds, the salt under tongue thing, beatroot smoothies. Tissue salts, HP 3‰ inhaler and humidifier 1% HP, sea salt and xylitol but I want a proper fix something that will show real recovery. Please help

Lung Herbal Tonics, Salt Therapy
Posted by Jennifer (Phoenix, Az) on 11/20/2017
5 out of 5 stars

Have had breathing problems since a little girl due to swimming in chlorinated pool. I finally found a way to cure my lung issues. I take a lung tonic which is a liquid I purchased from a health food store with herbs for the lungs. I take this while I use an herbal inhaler that I got from the health food store. I purchased it at Whole foods. then I did Salt therapy. There are salt therapy clinics all over the country where you sit in a salt room and inhale the salts. Go slow as it can make things very constricted at first. Like 10 minutes to start. I also have purchased a cheap nebulizer on ebay and nebulized salt water into the air where I can breath it in. I have done some essential oils also. You have to go really slow though. As it cleanses your lungs of all the toxins, it can make things feel worse at first. I have also found that a little red wine can loosen things up. I mean a tiny bit. I started to drink it a long time ago after one episode of breathing issues that lasted a year, and finally gave up and started to drink some red wine. And low and behold my breathing came back. I don't know if it was this or all the lung herbs I drank in a tea, like lungwart, lobelia etc.

The most recent situation was very life threatening as I moved into a new home with new construction dust. I almost died. And had to stay at a hotel where someone setoff a smoke bomb outside my hotel room. And I was in massive distress. The taking the tonics I got at Whole foods, and their inhalation stick, together with nebulizing some salt water and essential oils eventually cleared my lungs. I also took some stabilized oxygen pills (non chlorinated - very important) but that doesn't help by itself.

I would also treat for candida and mold knowing that my environmenal scientist friend says that our air is filled with it.

Get a Correct Diagnosis
Posted by Charity (Faithville, Usa) on 08/05/2017

I was just reading your posts and thought I might add some things. I learned a lot from books by Dr.Batmanghelidj about water and minerals, he is passed on but has a website called watercure. One of his books is on how to cure asthma. I also learned a lot from watching Eric Berg on youtube about cortisol. He teaches on others topics but stress has run my life so I study that area.


Get a Correct Diagnosis
Posted by Greystone (Vancouver) on 08/05/2017

Asthma is one of the most common ailments that is misdiagnosed and recently a study came indicating that 88% first diagnosis made is incorrectly. So, please read this: Silent acid reflux mimics asthma.

A couple things to look for 1) You have trouble breathing, 2) you have more difficulty getting air in than getting air out out?

Acid reflux causes you to have trouble getting air in during inspiration. People with asthma have difficulty getting air out of the lungs. Make sure you have the correct diagnosis!

When I was sick I was misdiagnosed at least seven times. That is seven time too many in my book. Getting on an treatment can permanently cure this asthma-like breathing problem. If you do not have enough acid in your stomach and this can happen as you get older or even to someone younger. not correct digestion leads to acid build up which causes acid reflux.

My ND put me on HCL, hydrochlric I simply took a few bites of food then take a HCL pill I was told to take one tablet if not burning in the stomach, then next time you eat take two, then next time you eat take three. As soon as it begins burning in the stomach cut back to two.

There are other ways as well one is licorice or good old baking soda, since we all know it is alkalizing and it neutralizes stomach acid fast, and alkalizes the entire system. Mix 1/2 teaspoon to full teaspoon in an 8 ounce glass of pure waterand drink immediately. You will find out fast if you have asthma or acid reflux Be caution because baking soda can raise your blood pressure.
