Julie (Grand Rapids, Michigan United States) on 09/22/2012: My daughter has had asthma and allergy issues since birth and it got much worse the past few years. She is now 15 and free of medications for the first time ever! Last fall she was on seven different medications for asthma/allergies. The side effects were terrible and she had severe panic attacks as a result. She missed endless days of school and activities. She was in a vicious cycle because asthma and emotions are so closely related. She saw countless specialists and they kept giving her more and more medications that did not help. Allergy shots caused severe reactions so we stopped those. Not a single thing worked that the traditional medical field offered.
The only thing that has helped her is chiropractic care. She sees a chiropractor that performs the Torque Release Technique. He uses a small spring loaded tool that thunks the spine back in place. It is non-violent and does not hurt her one bit. Whenever the top of her spine is out she fills up with phlem and has a hard time taking a full breath. When a different part of the spine is out she gets sharp pains in the chest. These are only two examples but each symptom of her asthma can be allevaited by an adjustment. It has taken nine months of 1-4 adjustments a week to get her to this point. NO MEDICATIONS!!! She asks to go to the chiropractor whenever her symptoms emerge before her scheduled adjustment day. Now, nine months later, she is off every medication and no longer has panic attacks. Her asthma specialist is amazed and a lot annoyed. Her breathing tests have improved dramatically and she is happy!! The concept of chiropractic care is that the body heals itself from the inside out when the spine is in alignment. It takes time and repeatition to get the spine to align and stay there. She still goes for adjustments every week but that will eventually move to every other week and then monthly. The time and commitment has been worth the effort. My daughter has her life back and that is so important for a teenager!! Her body is truly healing itself from the inside out!!
