My Quest To Beat Asthma Medication

Postby Coop_de_Ville on Sun Aug 09, 2009 11:57 am

Its been 11 years since I suddenly became asthmatic and since then I have relied on 3 types of inhalers a reliever and preventer and a nasal spray. I have decided I am going to beat this cnut and cure myself of asthma medication!
Since Friday I have started using some natural remedies to help me and they have worked. So far I am drinking a pint of water with 1 squeezed lemon and half a ginger root chopped in to it. As well as this I am sniffing a jar of honey a few times a day lol.
To my surprise this is actually working, my chest has never felt better and I havnt used an inhaler of any form for almost 3 days even when I was pushing yesterday.

I will write in this every so often with updates etc but just wondering if anybody else knows of any other ways to beat this bracksted of a disease?

I'd agree that a more alkaline approach to diet help Asthma.

In addition I'd look to cut out anything that triggers a histamine reaction. For me I found that cutting all alcohol, dairy and processed/refined sugars (especially milk chocolate) made a big difference. I'm more fortunate that my Asthma is seasonal for around 6 weeks with Hayfever but it does allow me to monitor how consuming different foods and drink can make it better or worse.

If you are to take any meds, be sure to talk to some doctors that know about the IOC banned substances list...

Have been doing a bit of reading/research on fatty acids recently and through that stumbled upon an article talking about inflammation in asthma and how balancing omega3/6 is important to limit this - which makes sense.

It also suggested focusing on ensuring the following nutrients are taken adequatly to help the body deal with the inflammatory aspects of asthma;

balanced omega3/6
vit c
vit b 3 (niacin)
vit b 6 (pyroxidine)
magnesium
zinc

Dude i had asthma when i was young, but my ma refused to get me medicine and i can see why, we come dependent. I get tightening when i run on roads, so i don't do it. Other than that i've totally beat it.

As others have said avoid inflammatory foods and eat anti-inflam foods. You're probably half way there already.

Hey Coop, only just saw this thread. How is the new protocol working out for you?

As for cutting out problem foods, milk is the one that causes me most trouble breathing. Soon as I cut it down/out I don't cough gunk.

Superb Coop!! I think it just goes to show what you can do without pharmaceuticals. Obviously they have their place and, if you find you still need it then fine, but the less we have to rely on them the better. Clearly for some illnesses you really should do what the doctor tells you, but I do think complementary medicine and diet is often overlooked. I know since I started weight training and eating properly I've cut the pain medication for the nerve damage in my arm to less than a third of what I was on, and from three types of pain relief to just one at a minimal dose.

Well done! :D
