Have you been off work due to your asthma? Does it get worse at certain times of year or under stress? Are you worried that it’s starting to affect your work and restrict your lifestyle?
Just one year ago, I found myself in a comparable situation. Here I was at home (again!) Using a terrible bout of asthma and concerned for the safety of my job because this was my eighth day away with asthma that year. I found me searching the web for a natural remedy for asthma, exploring the causes of asthma, how they relate to allergies (which I had as a kid) and looking to see what medicines and treatments were available. Fed up with taking increasing doses of brown and blue inhalers, that seemed to leave me dependent on medication I browse around to see if anyone had found a successful way of controlling their asthma without drugs.
If you’ve had allergies, you’ll likely relate to the awful feeling when yet another assault comes on and your own life is thrown into disarray. You could find that the doctors don’t have time to go over alternative treatments, but simply prescribe the usual inhalers at every visit, assess your breathing and lung capacity and also sign you off until the next trip.
Everything I found was both intriguing and disturbing. The evidence was that a lot of our asthma now is induced by our contemporary world. The most concerning thing was that there’s not any incentive for the drug companies or the doctors to find a natural remedy, as they’re all making a considerable profit from the traditional inhalers.
By searching for “natural asthma cure” I found stories of individuals who had found alternative ways of managing their asthma and who had been able to decrease their medications (under the advice of their physician, naturally).
The easy regimes involved took less than five minutes every day and within less than a week I could truly feel the benefits. I have managed to cut down but not cut out my asthma medicine and feel much fitter and healthier. The best thing of all, I could have a very long walk with my son without having to take the inhaler with me.
If you’re considering an alternate treatment for your asthma, do a little research on the world wide web, check with your physician or medical practitioner, and be prepared to try more than one idea. Do try it for over a day or two, your body will take time to adjust. What works for one person may not operate for you, we’re all different.
