I am nearly 43 years old, and I'm a lifelong asthmatic. Instead of "growing out of it", I've had to endure increased asthma problems during adulthood. My situation has worsened again because I got the flu about 5 years ago, and I have severe acid reflux. I get bronchitis very regularly, and when I haven't been diagnosed with it, I still don't breathe freely.

Approximately 3 months ago, one of my mother's friends recommended remedies, from a popular home shopping network, for Acid Reflux. The main remedies are: CoQ10 and N-Acetyl Cysteine. I started taking 4 CoQ10 (100 mg capsules) and 4 NAC (500 mg capsules) in the morning. I usually take the NAC once or twice again during the day. They did not stop my Acid Reflux, but they did greatly reduce my asthma symptoms. For real.

I ran out of the very expensive CoQ10 once, so I bought a less expensive brand at my local mega-market (yes, that one), which worked just as well.

During the 3 months that I've been taking these two remedies, I've only used my nebulizer once (before, I used it 4 times/day), and my inhalers approximately 4 times. I haven't used inhalers in about 3 weeks. That is progress.

I'm not touting these supplements as a cure, because I have to keep taking them to get the benefits. That's fine with me. Every day, I'm shocked and delighted to be breathing freely!

I have had asthma problems for years and after a bad two months with bronchitis I was having even worse asthma. My Dr. told me I needed to be on steriods, inhaler, antihistamines, and get rid of my dogs! Yea right... I'm not an idiot. I never went back to that Dr. but my asthma has gotten better. I did take antihistamines at first (out of desperation) just to settle the allergy induced asthma and get the initial inflamation out of my lungs.

So after two years I have found a few things that work. Every morning before I eat or drink anything else I have a cup of really hot, strong, organic black coffee from our french press. This seems to break up everything that has settled in my lungs while I was sleeping. Cutting out dairy really helps but I tend not to follow my own advice on that. Throughout the day I drink at least two glasses of water with 1-2 Tablespoons Apple Cider Vinegar in them. I notice my asthma is way better on days when I spend time outdoors, at least open your windows. I moved from Portland to the Cascade mountain range and that helped imennsley within two months. And Yoga helps so much too, especially the warrior two position. I do steam inhalation over a pot of boiling water for 3-5 min. Befor bed everynight... This makes my skin look great too.

Two years after having horrible bronchitus I have went from taking my inhaler twice a day to taking it maybe once a week. I'm starting on organic virgin coconut oil so I'm excited to see more positive changes. ACV also cures my boyfriends windburn/rosecea he gets from working outside in the harsh elements. He drinks a glass with 2 tablespoons ACV after work everyday and it clears up within an hour. I LOVE THIS STUFF!

Health to All... I am 63 yrs, never smoked, vegetarian from age 7, yoga teacher, great stamina all day, weight 124 lbs, 5'5" female. It started a couple of years ago with a cough only at night when I would lay down. It then went into a tightening of my lungs & I had trouble breathing. Hard to breath in - Hard to breath out. My sleep every night was disrupted to the extent that I wasn't sleeping at all, had to get up & totally exhausted, I needed oxygen! It got worse with each month until landing in the Emergency room for inhalation. They gave me a puffer which I ended up using every night about 3:00am sometimes 2ce at night, I could see myself dragging an oxygen tank around with me if I didn't come up with a cure soon. I had two separate labs test two large pieces of yellow phlegm that I was finally able to cough up. It didn't happen easily. Both labs said they were not viral or microbial. I did a fast for worms & candida which helped some.

Started using the ACV with baking soda 2ce day. Coconut oil in morning coffee & all hot foods, Vit C with methylene blue 4-8 drops daily, MSM, Magnesium powder at night 1/2 tsp, live on foods low in sugar, use sea salt only, take kelp powder 1tbl daily & iodine drops 15 @ 3%, gave up dairy, tried for 3 months an inhalator with 3% peroxide, with the results all being positive and every week getting better.

It has been 1 year now since I went into the ER for emergency air. I only use the puffer approx. 3 times a month. Now I cough up once in a while these tiny round, formed, mucus balls (smaller than a BB) plus small strings of mucus about 3mm long and less than a pencil lead in width. After they are coughed out I can breath nearly perfect. If only I knew what to take to cleanse the lungs (aveoli) of these "plugs" Please help if any one knows how to cleanse the lungs of these mucus plugs forever. I still have the usual cracking & wheezing with these plugs which still greatly interfere with nightly sleep & oxygen intake. The huge amounts of former mucus is gone, it's only these tiny plugs to get rid of now. Then I will pronounce myself cured of Asthma!
