I can certainly vouch for the cold shower remedy. After normal shower I turn up the heat to the hottest possible before it's actually burning for about a minute, then turn almost all the hot off. I have a shower rose that you can hold rather than a fixed one, this helps as I can start on the legs first then work up to head and chest and back. It's important to breath deeply while doing this, you will notice your breathing becoming more intense naturally with the shock but really try to push all the air out of your lungs as this gets rid if the toxins faster. I only leave cold on for about 15 seconds. You won't feel cold stepping out of shower, you will feel warm and indeed invigorated and rejuvenated. I have been doing this for about 3 weeks every day and yes my asthma has improved. Also for those on cleansing regimes this is a great one too.
Cold Shower Therapy
I decided to finish every normal 'hot shower' with a blast of totally cold water, after reading a book by an old healer by the name of Jethro Kloss. Anyway, I am a bad asthmatic, and used to get sick around 6 times per year. When I got sick it really affected my chest, with huge amounts of mucous, and real bad asthma.
Now I rarely get sick (it boosts the immune system as well as circulation), and if I do it's usually just a mildly sore throat. I wish I could better explain the massive difference this has made. Even if you feel sickness coming on, a cold shower will often stop it in its tracks.

I ran into this page by accident, while looking up treatments to help my chronic asthma. I gave it a try and felt amazingly envigorated and my asthma seemed to improve almost immediately as I was having a bad breathing day. Also my skin feels great. I will continue and let u know how it goes.
Yea. Having suffered from bronchitis attacks for years and years, which brought out my asthma, I finally took the plunge and nebulised with colloidal silver. Here's what I did:
Day One - Five minutes of nebulising in the morning and fifteen minutes before bedtime. Day Two: Fifteen minutes in the morning, five minutes at noon and fifteen minutes before bedtime. Day Three: Fifteen minutes in the morning and ten minutes before bedtime
In three days it had all cleared up! That was last February, and I haven't had bronchitis since.
I have asthma and bronchiectasis (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease). Was diagnosed 8 years ago. I was suffering from monthly (sometimes twice monthly) chest infections, and had to take antibiotics for every outbreak and becoming more and more resistant and sensitive to the drugs. I started using Colloidal Silver in my nebuliser about a year ago now and have not had a chest infection since. As soon as I feel my sputum changing (from clear to yellow) I use the colloidal silver and the infection does not develop any further. Some times I have to do it more than once, but mostly once is enough. I hope this will help anybody out there that is struggling with the same problem. Good luck!!
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.
for Jeisea from Byron Bay, Australia: A very good friend just sent me this link and I've been reading for a long time now. I have never heard of these remedies listed here, but think I'll give it a try. But for Jeisea, YES, Acid Reflux does play a large part in asthma. I never had a clue the two could be related and was shocked to find out just how related they were. I had it for years and my asthma went off the deep end so bad that I was prednisone dependant that did not always work, except the huge weight gain, UGH. By pure accident I was seen by a doctor that questioned GERD and Acid Reflux after 13 bouts of pneumonia in little over a year and continual asthma attacks.. I was even diagnosed with COPD. I went to bed fine and woke up deathly ill. At the end, I had another asthma attack before the first one ended. I went into respiratory failure August, 2006. The doctor was a gem, he called it silent GERD/Reflux with a hiatal hernia. My esophogus was as bad as they had seen without Barrett's being present. Life was pure hell from then on, nothing worked. On December 15, 2006 I had surgery to repair the hernia as well as a Nissen Wrap by an outstanding surgeon. I have been asthma free, no meds for asthma, NO PREDNISONE!!! I do not even use my inhaler. The kicker, I am a smoker, now I smoke with ease, but, plan to quit soon. I feel great and losing weight. It has made me extremely lactose intolerant. I did have one major set back 2 weeks ago in that I had what appeared to be a heart attack. All signs for a heart attack were present and strong. I had an angio-gram within hours of getting to the hospital and the results were 100% plaque free in my heart. It was the acid reflux stuck in my chest, a temporary surgery side effect. I am still home recovering, but, tomorrow when I go out, I do plan to buy some apple cider vinegar and give it a chance to see if it will stop this chest thing from ever happening again. It's certainly worth a shot, because honestly that day was the scariest of my life. If I scare anyone with this awful, really I mean too, for your own good. DO NOT IGNORE ACID REFLUX/GERD. It's extremely dangerous and must be dealt with immediately.
Thanks and take care, will be checking in regularly from now on.
Coughs, Acid Reflux and Asthma
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.
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.
