I've been asthmatic since being pregnant at age 26. On medications including steroids and inhalers. Just to make a long story shorter, I began with Vitamin C with bioflavanoids and rosehips (ascorbic acid alone did not seem to help). Vit C 1000 worked many times if I caught an attack early enough, but, omega 3s helped even better so I added them. Another real difference I found was when I went organic. A lot of things improved for one, but, it seems also my asthma as well.

Haven't had a problem in years, eating all kinds of foods, but, organic, in particular organic dairy and grass fed meats. I do now have raw organic Apple Cider Vinegar most everyday as well. Just to add, since going organic, my son's allergies that he had for years since he was a teenager, now in his 30's, have subsided as well. I use all natural household cleaning products as well such as baking soda and vinegar. Kind of "detoxing" as much as I can. Hope that helps anyone.

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 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.

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 ...


  • 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.

Two students I had contact with each had asthma most of their lives. I informed them that bovine colostrum could get rid of the asthma quickly. Both of them followed the protocol that I suggested which was one half scoop of the colostrum powder for the first two days, one scoop for days three and four, one and one half scoops for days five and six, and two scoops for day seven and after until the asthma is gone. You will find the measuring scoop inside the container of colostrum powder.

When they no longer have asthma I suggested that they go back to a half scoop for prevention.

Also, I instructed them to mix the colostrum with eight ounces of "healthy" water in a blender and drink the mixture thirty minutes before breakfast on an empty stomach which is critical in getting the greatest benefit from the colostrum. They followed the protocol that I suggested and both of them got rid of the asthma in four weeks.

It has been over two years for the one student and over one year for the other student since they have gotten rid of the asthma. Praise The Lord! The colostrum powder that I suggested they purchase can be found on the internet for approximately $65.00. Simply enter 21 ounces colostrum powder on any search engine and you will find a powder that is effective and moderately priced.

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.

Aloe Vera

Hello I would like to tell you how I use Aloe Vera to help keep my Asthma under control.

I am 66 YO and had child hood asthma which went away after I was 10.

However about 6 years ago I had a bad viral chest infection which took 6 weeks to clear up. I was left with asthma, although initially it was not very bad. I used a Symbicort inhaler and morning and evening puffs controlled it. Then in 2010 I moved from South Florida to Costa Rica. After a couple of months I was able to get rid of my inhaler. However, in early 2013 a Swiss company started demolishing a mountain so they could build a new resort less then a half mile away. Over a hundred large Mack trucks would drive by my home everyday carrying away the dirt and rocks. My asthma started back up with a vengeance. I ended up using Albuterol and Symbicort inhalers and taking Singulair (Montelukast) every day. (This was all prescribed by my Doctor in the USA.) I was using the Albuterol several times a day. Although they finished up in early December my symptoms continued.

I noted early on the the Singulair acted as anti-viagra. The Singulair made it difficult to impossible to have an erection. So I substituted Lobiella. I would take a capsule just before bedtime and it would help me a lot. It also did not have the side effects of the Singulair.

Recently I found out that Aloe Vera acts like a natural steroid and when I have it, my lungs clear just like the Albuterol. However, the aloe-vera gel is very bitter so I either mix it in juice or I get a bottle of Aloe Vera drink, which does not work as well. A number of roadside stands sell Aloe-vera drink that is not pasteurized and it works better although I do get some relief from the commercial drink.

When I drink several glasses a day it keeps my lungs clear. I had tried ACV but it did not work for me nearly as well.

I hope my experiences help.

Apple cider vinegar made my asthma worse. At first I thought it was just a detoxification reaction, so I toughed it out and kept using it while I did vegetable juice fasts and ate super healthy. But my breathing just got worse, so I stopped. I did elimination diets for a long time and after two years of trying to figure out what was the problem I found out it was SULFUR! ACV is loaded with sulfur, along with other common things such as chocolate, dairy, onions, garlic, eggs, broccoli, cabbage, stratospheric aerosol geoengineering chemicals being sprayed in the air everyday, and stinky things like fermaldahyd in perfume. Apparently, 5% of asthmatics have a sulfur sensitivity. It's not the same as an allergy, but it could be caused by mercury poisoning or even genetic problems with methylation pathways. So when I don't eat sulfur foods, I breathe better. Unfortunately, I can't get away from the stratospheric aerosol geoengineering pollution so I can no longer leave my home or go outside without an uncomfortable gas mask. I now have a nebulizer and very powerful air cleaners. The meds all made things worse I don't use anything but albuterol now. Anyways, eliminating sulfur, sulfates and sulfites, including all preservatives may be beneficial, if sulfur sensitivity is the problem (hey, 5% chance! )

Aloe Vera

I apologize in advance for how lengthy this is. I am writing to let everyone know about the incredible benefits we have experienced with Aloe. About one and a half years ago our whole family came down with whooping cough. I decided to try Aloe, as a friend I had known had had great success with it for treating a serious prolonged cough and my mother also told me that in Colombia SA they would use a beaten concoction of Aloe and egg whites to treat whooping cough when she was a little girl. I reaearched Aloe on the internet, and though I didn't find the egg white recipe, I found many things Aloe is good for. It did work very well for whooping cough, especially helping to calm the nightime attacks, and a friend tried it for her daughter's whooping cough and had the same results. When I looked Aloe up on the internet, the treatment for the ailment that interested me the most was asthma. My son had been struggling with it for several years- not severe, but mostly sports induced and it greatly hindered his ability to play sports. I have tried most home remedies for asthama and have had so-so results. He began drinking it every day and by the end of the second month his attacks were completely gone. As long as he continues to drink it daily, he has no attacks. If he stops it entirely he begins having attacks again after a couple of months.

I found that one of the reasons that Aloe works for asthama (and other conditions like arthritis and lupus) is because it is anti-inflammatory. So, it keeps the airwarys from getting inflamed. Another reason it works is because it is also excellent for treating allergies which many times are a trigger for asthama. One of the reasons it works for allergies is because of the collagen it causes your body to produce which thickens the the mucus linings of your repiratory system and intestinal tract (heals leaky gut) which in turn helps you not to be so sensitive to allergens. Another reason is that it treats systemic candida which is usually the root of asthma and allergies.

The funny thing I noticed, which is not mentioned in any literature I have researched about Aloe, is that it has also helped with his stunted growth. My son is really short for his age and in the two years before taking Aloe, he only grew six inches total. Once he began taking Aloe for his asthma he grew almost six inches in one year. The growth spurt coincided exactly with time he first began the Aloe. I've tried my own "experiments" to see if his growth is related to the Aloe or if it is just his time to start growing, and I've found that if he has a period of a couple of months where he doesn't take his Aloe at all or only takes it once a week or so, he only grows about a quarter of an inch per month or less. When he takes it every single day, he grows about a half inch per month.

My father has been really inspired about my son's story and began taking it himself about four months ago for his prostate. He has been on prostate medication for the past ten years and still gets up to urinate about four times per night. He has tried different prostate medicines as well as his own share of home remedies, and nothing has worked. Well, after drinking Aloe daily for a couple of months, he was able to get off of his prostate medicine completly. Now he only gets up once or twice per night and he's not on any prostate medecine.

I've heard some people make some type of Aloe tea infusion, but the way we take Aloe is this: We buy a fresh Aloe stalk from the produce section of the grocery store. It has to be at least fourteen inches long, or I've read it's not as beneficial. The Aloe has to be nice and firm. Don't use it if it is soft and squishy as it is too old and may actually agravate some candida problems. We slice off a three inch section from the base and peel off the thick green skin with a paring knife and discard it. We then take the gel (from the three inch section) and gently blend it with a drink mixer with some orange juice for palatability. The less you blend, the better as you don't want to destroy the beneficial properties.

You can buy bottled Aloe, but I DON'T RECOMMEND IT! While there may be some good Aloe products out there, I've read that sometimes the bottle can say 100% Aloe and it is actually 95% water, but for some reason the FDA allows them to say 100% Aloe even if it isn't. The other reason is that bottled Aloe is usually pastuerized which kills many of the beneficial enzymes that make Aloe so effective. Fresher is always better with Aloe.

Vitamin K2 MK7 + Vitamin D3 + Zinc cures Asthma!

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.

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 + 2000ui 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.Si

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

Basic 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.

And that is why the Buteyko method is so effective against asthma: it work with the alkalized blood by excess calcium blood calcium.

K2 MK7 is a very rare nutrient nowadays, even harder to find in a vegetatian 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 any are also defficient, K2 MK7 won't be able to do its job.

I'll be honest, people are driving me NUTS with their claims of ACV and coconut oil curing every chronic disease known to man lol. I have serious life threatening asthma, and I eat organic coconut oil with every meal.. it does very little to NOTHING to reduce symptoms.. I took ACV for a full month and it also did nothing.

This is what has reduced my asthma symptoms by 90%... TURMERIC powder.. the cheap stuff not even organic.. it's like $1 for a huge bag. Mix 1 tbsp in water and chug it down 3x a day, or mix it with your food if you prefer.

Next, get lots of SUN, vitamin D deficiency has a major role in asthma attacks.

Next (optional) eat lots of vegetables with every meal (fruits not so much).

I went from needing my inhaler or I would die.. to not using it for weeks at a time.. the #1 thing I mentioned is the turmeric, sunlight is very important too though.

Try it and let me know your results.

I have bronchial asthma and have found that gluten, soy protein, and whey protein send me into severe episodes. Elimination of foods containing these substances has helped me control my asthma effectively.

My son has asthma set off by allergies and we manage it using a lot of tools, many of them I found at EC. The most important thing is to find out what things set you off (food and/or environmental) and then avoid them! For my son, the big ones are woodsmoke (we live in Costa Rica and everyone burns their trash), cigarette smoke, moldy buildings (inside of a carpeted theatre) - those are the biggies. Foods are not so bad for him, but a few give him the dry cough and itchy throat: dairy, white flour, sugar of course - those are common. Corn products, bananas, a few other things. But his worst attacks have been environmental.

When he feels a sinus infection coming on (which is rare these days), he does the Neti pot (1 C warm water, 1/2 t. real salt, 1-2 drops GSE, 1/4 t. baking soda) and gargles. We take a boat load of vitamins (including 500mg magnesium and 2.5g Vit C in a powder).

For colds, 150mg zinc, then again 4 hours later, then again 4 hours later - I find this odd but a friend recommended it and it works.

Garlic is great for lungs: swallow a raw crushed clove (I cut it in pieces).

Drink hot ACV with honey and a tap of cayenne at night - yum! Everything clears up.

That's all I can think of at this moment. Thanks so much for this website. I just wanted to give something back. Pura vida!

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.

H2O2 Inhalation Therapy

I have had mild asthma for years but still had to take a corticosteroid (Advair) once a day. I've been determined to get off that stuff so I threw caution to the wind and used Bill Munroe's method but only inhaled 6 squirts once in the morning of the 3% solution hydrogen peroxide daily. This is day asthma symptoms. Do you all realize how empowering it is to be using a therapy that is $0.50 a month as opposed to $40 (with insurance)? Once I get my 3% food grade hydrogen peroxide, I'll dilute it further till I hit the maintenance dose - hopefully < o.5%. As a nurse, I find this therapy a whole lot less destructive then the steroids offered patients. Period!

H2OH Inhalation for Asthma: The first time I tried the h2oh in my neb, I didnt have the unstabilized kind, but was desperate and used one with a stabilizer. It worked instantly. I went and food the arron brands and started using that. Since then, Every time I try to start the treatment I get really really bad reactions. My asthma gets worse than ever, my heart rate goes crazy going from 40-100 bpm at random, and one one very bad night it was racing and then stopping for about 4 beats. At first I thought the asthma attack were coinciding with my efforts, but after trying so many times, I think it is a result. I have always had some sort of allergy to mold but was never diagnosed by a doctor. I was traveling in Boston at the age of twenty when the first bad attack happened and went to the er around there. They x-rayed my lungs and said there were no signs of asthma but thats the diagnosis because my symptoms point that way. Suddenly getting asthma at the age of twenty seemed like a joke to me!! Isnt that what a 20 year old girl dreams of? I imagined wearing an inhaler on a neclace. Since these reactions, I am wondering if I have some sort of fungus or virus in my lungs, and they are reacting spitefully to the threat of thier environment the excess oxygen is bringing? I did cough up a lot of mucus and some bloody mucus or clots.

Every time I try the treatment I end up having to get an rx for prednisone because I can't take how bad the asthma is. I get really erratic and upset, maybe the lack of oxygen? I also get a chemical smell when my asthma is at its worse. I thought it was my car, but I get whiffs of it everywhere and no one else can smell it. The only chemical I use is mouse in the roots of my hair, don't even use body wash (got a three year skin allergic reaction, not taking that chance again), homemade pure laundry detergent, etc.

Any ideas of how I can safely use the h20h, what the smell is, and if my asthma is really some sort of infection? It has been five years now, the only time I did not have asthma was when I was pregnant and breastfeeding.
