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.
Someone on here asked about cough and reflux. My son had a chronic cough and was treated for asthma. He was in the worst category for asthma. He never had a wheeze. He just had a chronic cough. When he was finally diagnosed with reflux, he had developed Barrett's Oesophagous, a pre cancerous condition. Reflux causes asthma. The meds for asthma cause reflux. You see his problem. He had a laproscopic fundoplication operation which completely stopped reflux. He hasn't had asthma at all since. If you are coughing it could mean your reflux isn't under control. Chronic reflux isn't safe.
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)
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.

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! )
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 last experience with asthma was after I ate a bowl of ice cream, I hadn't had an attack in years and ended up watching the sun come up because of it, I found that dairy was a huge offender for me when it comes to allergies, I cannot consume it. I also found that when I cut all dairy out of my diet any allery symptoms I may have been experiencing was lessened considerably. I also found that corn and any corn products did the same thing.
ASTHMA: 1 yea for dairy elimination. My best friend's 4 year old has been having difficulty breathing and the doctor wanted to put him on steroids. A holistic nutritionist suggested he eliminate dairy from his diet and like a miracle the breathing problems are gone.
The cure for both Asthma and Allergies is a healthy alkaline based diet. Foods come in 2 groups acidic and alkaline. The more acidic foods we eat the more we are susceptible to diseases like cancer, high blood pressure, tumors, colds and asthma and allergies. I am curing my son who has had chronic, food allergies and asthma. There was one point he could only eat 3 foods, now he eat about 15. I realized that he was allergic to all foods acidic and his food allergies were compounded by his asthma. I instituteed a heavy alkaline based diet and now his allergies are better by 50% and asthma went for chronic to mild.... It's all what we eat... do some research into alkalinity and acidity and I guarantee you, you are what you eat!!!
I am a severe asthmatic with sinusitis. I'm not sure if asthmatics are allergic to dairy or if people who are allergic to dairy become asthmatics, but either way, there is a strong connection. Dairy not only effects my asthma, but my sinuses and allergies, as well.
I forgot to mention preservatives also makes it hard to breath, so get rid of the preservatives in your foods when you have asthma... Get rid of the preservatives and white flour, store bought bread, boxed food and most canned foods.
I started developing asthma about a year and half ago... I couldn't even walk a block without wheezing. On the advice of my mother, I stopped eating all wheat products and have had no trouble breathing ever since.
I've been on a dairy-free diet for less than a week and my breathing is much deeper than ever! As well, my allergies are dissipating. I was hospitalized for asthma earlier this year, and wondered if I was ever going to get my symptoms under control. I cannot adequately express how much better I feel. I'm also going to add ACV to my breakfast and dinner -- I feel that it will also help.
My 2 yr old has asthma and frequently has bronchitis. Stopping dairy in his diet is the only thing that has worked for us. We tried all of the medicines the doctors would give it would only make him better for a short while and sick more frequently.
I just wanted to make all those asthma sufferers, including Liz from Wisconcin, a little more aware of their environment and possible triggers that they may not be aware of. I have Multiple Chemical Sensitivities, and developed asthma 18 years ago, when I moved into my sister's new townhouse. I thought her cats were making me sick, including the asthma, but they weren't. It was the townhouse.
Many elements of our home and work environments are overloaded with synthetic chemicals, which are the main trigger for my asthma. For example, carpeting is processed with a number of toxic synthetic chemicals, including formaldehyde. Much of the manufactured furniture is made of composite woods, which also contain formaldehyde and toxic glues. Our interior environments are loaded with many synthetic chemicals, so I suggest you learn more about them. Many manufactured components take months or years to outgas and can silently make a person ill. Furniture, carpet, cleaning solutions, health and beauty aids are loaded. Fragrances, including perfumes and air fresheners are nothing but synthetic chemicals that you and your family are breathing in, and those toxins are building up in your bodies.
With my condition, I try to be very careful about what comes into my home, as it is my safe place. Recently, I purchased a dehumidifier for our basement, which produced some kind of gas that floated up through the floor boards (I couldn't smell anything). It never occured to me that this would be a dangerous piece of equipment, but it was. Just beware of the unknown....four years ago, I took doxycycline which caused a severe asthma episode that lasted for 4 or 5 weeks. You never know!
In addition to the asthma I am currently experiencing,I have also had an annoying cough at night. That's what brought me to Earthclinic tonight, as I needed to deal with this. I figured the most effective concoction would include AVC..I wasn't dissapointed! I can tolerate ACV, but don't like honey, so I heated 2 Tablespoons of ACV, 1 Tablespoon each of honey and lemon in 1 cup of water. With the first sip, it calmed my cough and I think it has eased my asthma some too. This mixture was almost tasty, and I will definitely keep it up! Thanks everyone!
