Natural Treatment Remedies for Asthma
When it comes to chronic breathing problems, asthma is at the top of the list. Airway inflammation causes a restriction in the breathing tubes. This in turn creates symptoms like wheezing and shortness of breath, among others.
When triggers come in contact with the airways of an asthmatic, inflammation fills the airways, and they become narrow and filled with mucus. This makes airway resistance increase and makes breathing more difficult. It also creates the symptoms associated with asthma.
Millions are affected by this condition. Billions of dollars are collected into Big Pharma coffers for drugs used to mask asthma symptoms. It should not be this way.
Children and adults were not born to get asthma. Something is causing the asthma, which means there is something to fix for a cure.
What Causes Asthma
Asthma is caused by inadequate nutrition and environmental toxins. If you get proper nutrition while removing exposure to environmental toxins, you are well on your way to relief from asthma naturally, without inhalers or other medications. Keep reading for our action plan for relief from asthma.
Many things can trigger asthma, things like mold, pollen, dust mites, household chemicals, foods, air pollution, pets and more. These triggers can be fixed!
We would never recommend giving up your pet before trying everything else. Wash your dog with a natural shampoo and make sure you vacuum often all pet dander. In this post, we also discuss air purifiers. Get one immediately.
Some of the more common triggers for asthma include:
- Food and food additives
- Smoking and other environmental toxins
Tobacco smoke is an obvious trigger, to the smoker AND those around them. Second-hand smoke is horrible on so many levels, especially to children. E-cigarettes are likely not much better.
Natural Relief Remedies for Asthma
Here are some ideas to implement right away.
- Eat organic, Paleo foods. Asthma symptoms improve dramatically in so many people just by giving up all dairy, sugars and processed foods. Gluten is another common culprit. Eat organic to avoid GMOs and pesticide polluted foods. Obesity is linked to asthma risk. Go Paleo and get thin.
- Heal your environment. Everything in your house and workplace impacts your lungs. Outdoor air is well-known to stoke asthma and other lung disorders. Did you know that indoor air quality is, on average, five times worse than outdoor air? Examine your house. Carpet, furniture, mattress, and paint. In what will be a scary self-realization, look at the chemicals used to clean, sanitize, and “freshen” your house and your clothing. Personal care products for hair and skin need an overhaul as well. We also recommend an air purification system. Click here for more information. Here’s a list of some of the things we use in our household.
- Get sunshine. We believe the sun can heal just about any condition. Certainly, improve any condition. Go topless and let the energy of the sun fix your lungs. Naturally produced vitamin D from sun exposure is linked to lower asthma risk. Embrace the sun. Sunburn bad…sunshine good.
- Sleep at sundown. Sleep is when our body recovers. If you are not getting sleep, your lungs cannot heal. As mentioned above, we cannot stress the importance of a healthy mattress. You spend 1/3 of your life on that mattress. The toxins and off-gassing from conventional mattresses are well documented. You need an organic mattress. Contact us for more information on the best mattress in the world. It’s an investment, but you are worth it.
- Get adjusted. The muscles of breathing and the neurologic control of the airway all start with a healthy brain. Vertebral subluxations interfere with the neurology of your body. See your chiropractor regularly. Let the doctor know about your health concerns.
Look at our list of triggers of asthma. If you follow our program of natural remedies, you remove allergies, foods, heartburn, infection and medications from the list. That leaves smoking and exercise. If you smoke, shame on you. Through better diet, nutrition and lifestyle practices, exercise-induced asthma symptoms can become a thing of the past.
In addition to our Foundation 5, here are three supplements that the doctor ordered to help with asthma:
- Superfood – unique blend of chlorella and spirulina. All organic and in glass. Studies and our experience show that Superfood helps the asthma patient. So many other benefits as well.
- Magnesium Glycinate – relax those airways with magnesium. Magnesium is involved in hundreds of different enzymatic reactions in the body. Even the best diets are deficient in this nutrient.
- Paleo Cleanse – asthma is a lung disorder with plenty of inflammation. Stop the inflammation with Paleo Cleanse. This tasty powder is perfect for everyday use to combat environmental pollutants. It is the perfect meal replacement and great for those on the go.
