Asthma/Lugols:

OMG!!! 13 days now and I haven't used the asthma ventolin. After 62 years of trying to breath and all the usual nasty drugs, I have to remember to not try, just wait and it comes, just like you folk, without asthma, have been doing it forever, all the way down to my feet. Thanks to the lovely Lugol who made the iodine, which I began using about 6 months ago, starting at 3 – 4 drops in my morning juice or herb tea and after a few weeks raising it to 6 – 7 drops [approx.37mg] at the same time slowly withdrawing from the reliever. I have remained on the steroid evohaler puffer of just one puff only before bed and will start to withdraw from that, hmmm, maybe on new years day. Ha! For a start, will use it every second night and see how it goes. The other things that helped were, from 33 yrs. just after the first lung collapse, I began staying away from supermarkets and eating vegetables plus herb teas and occasional sushi and the last 20 years exercising am and pm. Tai Chi and walking.

Now I am just waiting for the sky to fall. What the nasty PTB's and their big Pharma, Codex Alimentarius, FDA and TGA will introduce next. Never mind, I am 82 and off the planet soon.

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.

Don't forget to take magnesium tablets. They ease Asthma.

Get the good magnesium----Chelated Magnesium.

2 a day after a meal. Almost all diseases are better with a person taking Magnesium. I was an asthamatic, I was lucky. It was the kind that goes away when a person gets to be 14 years old. You might want to take a calcium Magnesium combo.

I had for months this sensation of not being able to get a full breath or yawn, etc. I read somewhere that a deficiency in magnesium can cause this sensation. Sure enough this was the case with me. I started taking Magnesium and all of these symptoms went away. I went to Dr. after Dr. and test after test---all I needed was magnesium. I sure wish I could get the word out to more people with this problem that could get help/relief. Hope this helps!

When I first developed Asthma, I was shocked since I was an adult and at the time did not know you could get athsma as an adult. However, my doctor told me that mine was caused by my allergies. So I have been using 500 mg of Magnesium since last year and have not had an attack since then. I also use Quercetin to help fight it. I use a few others as well, but can't remember what. But will post later.

Good morning! (Or maybe Good evening! :) )

I realized yesterday that my daughter, who has had trouble with asthma for the last few years, and was hospitalized for it in December, is doing great! I can't remember when I last heard her wheeze. We have used many different remedies over the last few years. Until December, we could get her symptoms under control with natural remedies.

Anyway, it took two days of breathing treatments at the hospital to get her oxygen levels normal. I wanted to avoid a repeat of that. I added milk kefir from raw local milk that I am blessed to be able to get to her diet, having read about its benefits her at EC and elsewhere. I make her a smoothie with it most days. She drinks maybe 1 cup to 1.5 cups per day. (She is 11 years old.) It also has organic banana, sucanat and raw cacao powder in it. I had her on several herbs as well. However, a couple of months ago I stopped all other supplements except 1 feverfew a day, which she takes to prevent migraines. (Works great, even though she forgets to take it sometimes.) I took her off of the supplements because she said they made her feel worse. I don't know if that is the case, but I know that what you think about your health affects you. She tends to be a little dramatic, so it isn't always easy to figure out what is really going on with her. I did have a very reasonable doctor for her follow up from the hospitalization. He took her off all meds (that the hospital doctor wanted her on for a year! ) He told me she is fine now and to treat her as such. He was also happy about the raw milk, so he is rather an unusual MD.

Anyway, she has not had any wheezing for months. And she has been quite healthy. She is one of the few that escaped a stomach bug that made the rounds at our house last month. In fact, this is the best her health has been in years, praise the Lord.

This is the same child whose pediatrician thought she had juvenile rhuematoid arthritis a few years ago. She has been symptom free of that for a long time, too. JRA is autoimmune and many consider asthma to be also. Milk Kefir appears to help some with autoimmune diseases, so that is why I tried it. What a blessing it appears to be for her. I know everyone is different, but perhaps this is something that would help someone else. It is a simple and safe thing to try at least.

Have a super day!

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.

I hope my success with MSM may be able others asthma victims...

After 50+years of great doctors & resp- therapists, and numerous asthma meds & devices daily (including but not limited to inhalers, nebulisers, discus, pods, antiboitoics, steroids, cortico-streoids, spirometers, chambers, etc.), and numerous hospitalizations every year since childhood, my lifelong asthma was remedied within 2 weeks after I began taking an arthritis supplement that contained a new ingredient MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane). Nowadays, I take MSM (1500 mg) about once a month, as soon as I sense a twinge of chest tightness; I've been virtuallly asthma free for almost 2 years now!

Yes (unbelievably) it was as simple, cheap, and easy as that!

MSM cured my Asthma. I have been using ACV for quite some time now without any measurable improvement in my Asthma, but I will continue to use it for all its other health benefits. I wanted desperately to find something to help my Asthma. I have had Asthma since I was 6 (I'm now 35) and it became much worse 11 years ago when I was pregnant with my daughter. I have been using Advair and Ventolin for years, but I don't want to be dependent on them. I ran out of my Advair about a week and a half ago and my Asthma became out of control. I was waking up a couple of times a night needing my rescue inhaler and I struggled throughout the day. I took 2 1,000 mg capsules of MSM yesterday (I broke the powder into applesauce) and I was able to sleep through the night and wake up without ANY issues! I took a second dose this morning and again just now. I haven't had so much as a wheeze all day! I feel like a new woman! I will let you know how I feel after continued use. I LOVE this site!

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.

MSM works WONDERFULLY for asthma. Please read up on dosages - I have gone up to 8,000 but I don't want to give someone the wrong dosages.

Please try this remedy if you have asthma or other breathing difficulties. It is such relief from nature!!

I have been on a quest to cure my asthma for a few years now as I feel that allopathic medicine just makes my breathing worse over time. I recently tried apple cider vinegar and oil pulling with no siginifcant improvement. I have also tried many herbal remedies that I won't even list as they never helped enough for me to give up my inhalers. Let me clarify that my asthma is chronic and I have been on Advair, Singular, a daily nubulizer, Proventil, Albuterol, Primetine, and Asthmanex. On most days I was using a combination of these medications and although they helped to a degree, they never gave me complete relief and if I missed doses I would be close to emergency room wheezing (actually, after starting Advair I went to ER two times and prior to this med - I hadn't been to ER in 15 years). Now it may be that my quest is over as I started MSM last week and I feel as though I had a lung transplant. I can't really put into words how overjoyed I feel and how thankful I am to this website for exposing me to this supplement. I have made it through an entire week without using my inhaler at night and have decreased my inhaler to once a day. I was up to about 10-15 times a day depending on weather and allergens in air!!! I have quit taking singular and have thrown out asthmnex. I will continue to keep my albuterol for emergencies but if MSM continues to work so well - I may not have to use it. I have also found that when I have had difficulty breathing like sledding with daughter the other night - if I wait a few minutes it goes away. Normally, I would reach for inhaler for relief but don't feel that it is as urgent or severe. MSM may not work for others but it seems worth a try because for me it is nothing less than a miracle. Thanks again for this site and happy breathing to all. I will post an update if anything changes.

I came across a recent post on earthclinic. I've had a chronic cough for years. finally went to pulmonologist, who diagnosed adult onset asthma, and wanted to put me on Advair. Googled advair and it scared me. Google herbal remedies and came up with "Mullein". Bought a bottle. 30-35 drops in a little water a couple times a day. THE VERY FIRST NIGHT, i took it around 7 pm for the first time, and unbelieveably I was cough-free that night for the first time in i dont know how long. Been on it 3 weeks and its still working (as long as I take it :) ). One site said it may not work for everyone (like everything, I suppose) but it worked for me. Common herb, googleit and try it. Good luck.

I was diagnosed with seasonal asthma, and have had the same brutal cough for about 5 years. It would last for about 3 months untreated. Advair worked but I hated the side effects. Read about mullein on line 4 days ago and my cough is 85% better. The first night I took the drops my cough almost went away and I slept great for the first time in weeks. This miracle plant worked for me. I have been taking the drops 4 times a day and drinking the tea twice a day. In fact... Gonna go make a cup now :)

I have used mullein extract in the past and it has stopped my wheezing almost instantly.
