Open Your Airways For World Asthma Day

little-boy-asthma

Asthma is a chronic condition that affects the passageways that carry air to and from the lungs. Someone who has asthma, an asthmatic, has swollen or inflamed airways, making them susceptible to allergic reactions. When the airways are inflamed, there is a restricted amount of air that goes in and out of the lungs. This causes the person to become wheezy or have shortness of breath.

 

Asthma affects about 24 million people in the US, and that includes over 6 million children with the condition. Asthma causes 3 in ever 5 people with the condition to miss school, work, or limit physical activity, and people usually start noticing these limitations during childhood. The goal of World Asthma Day is to raise awareness about the condition and to support those who are affected by it.

 

There are many free resources for those with asthma. People can learn how to exercise or cope with the condition. There are even resources that help people naturally improve the health of their airways and lungs. Dherbs even has a cleanse that is designed to naturally cleanse your lungs and respiratory system. This can be beneficial for those with asthma, allergies, or bronchial troubles.

 

What Causes Asthma?

Asthma occurs when the airways are inflamed and inhibits proper airflow to and from the lungs. One of the most common causes of asthma is being allergic to certain substances. When the allergen is inhaled it can trigger an asthma attack because it irritates the already inflamed airways. Since asthma usually begins during childhood, children who are exposed to tobacco smoke or highly polluted environments can easily develop asthma. Additionally, the way a child is born can give him/her asthma. Babies born via Caesarean Section are 20% more likely to get asthma than babies born via vaginal birth because it is thought that Caesarean Section babies are exposed to immune system-modifying infections from bacteria during the procedure.

  • Tobacco Smoke
  • Allergies
  • Pregnancy
  • Stress
  • Obesity
  • Genetics
  • Airway Hyperactivity
  • Environmental Factors

    Q: My daughter is now 6 years old and at the age of 1 was diagnosed with asthma. She was on albuterol and predisone for 4 years off and on and only taking the medicine when her asthma flared up. While she was on this medicine I noticed that she had lack of an appetite. I started giving her organic milk and keeping her tightly clothed in the winter and by the time she was 4.5 years I got it under control that she didn't have an attack for a year. During that year I noticed that she eats. She constantly wants to eat, and her stomach is getting bigger even though she is highly active. I'm pretty sure the medicine had something to do with this. She recently had a slight attack 3 months ago, and I've been looking all over the place for something natural to give her when she does have asthma attacks instead of giving her that medicine which is poisoning her system. If I gave her a Children's Detox would this help with the bloating of her stomach? What can I give her that is natural and effective to help with the asthma should it occur again?

    A:

    Let the child perform the Children's Detox. Give her pear juice, plum juice, and prune juice periodically. The child sounds constipated. If the stomach is bloated and growing, clearly the child is backed up. Feed the child more fruits and vegetables (as they are loaded with enzymes which help with bowel movements).

    The asthma can be knocked out with the herbs Mullein leaf, Eucalyptus, Lobelia, and Wild Cherry Bark. Give them to the child in tea form. Alternate the teas, switching them up, making sure she drinks all of them. Mullein leaf by far is the best. Asthma is nothing but a mucus condition. Rub essential oil of Eucalyptus on the child's chest before bedtime. First rub on some olive oil, and then apply the essential oil of Eucalyptus. We have a great Respiratory inhaler made with the best essential oils for lung conditions such as asthma.

    Q: What can I give my son to help him with asthma? He has suffered from asthma since he was about 18 months and the medicine doesn't help him.

    A:

    I recommend the CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) for starters and then give the child the CHILDREN LUNG EXTRACT as a daily regimen (after the child completes the CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts)). Stay on the CHILDREN LUNG EXTRACT with the child for a while (months) until the asthma has subsided. Change the diet too! No dairy, no meat, no refined grains!!! Give the child plenty of water too!!!

    Q: This past May my sister started to have really bad asthma attacks and allergic relations to scents, dust etc, and a horrible cough. She was told by her doctor that she had asthma and was put on asthma medication, inhalers, etc. the symptoms got worse, she couldn't sleep because she was up all night coughing, the claritin didn't work, etc. She had been complaining the past week of feeling bloated, her ankles being swollen, not being able to breath when she layed down, etc. She couldn't even walk from desk to desk at work. On the way home last week she went into the Emergency room and was admitted and stayed 4 days. We soon found out that she had congenital heart failure and only 25% of her heart is pumping properly. She couldn't breath because of the water build up on her lungs and heart. The doctors said that the build up of antibodies in her system showed that she had contracted EB virus some years ago and it permanently damaged her heart. She is limited to only 64 ounces of water a day, takes water pills, blood pressure pills, and is not allowed to eat foods high in sodium. My question is, is there any herbs or vitamins that can be used to help her heart? I do not want her to get a pace maker or have a heart transplant. The medications that she is on now make her so weak and drowsy. I know the doctors said the heart damage is permanent, but I just need to know is there anything else that would help naturally?

    A:

    The heart failure is only permanent if you guys (especially your sister) BELIEVE so! What is believed is achieved! It's nothing but medical BS if you ask me!

    To CURE her heart condition, I would suggest she:

    1. Perform the Full Body Detox (absent any pharmaceutical drugs, but it is your sister's choice to stay on them or get off of them)

    2. While on the FBD, drink 2-4 cups of Hawthorn Berry tea

    3. After the FBD, she needs to take CARDIOVASCULAR Formula (3 capsules 2 times daily), CIRCUL-AID formula (3 capsules once daily), and BOWEL MOVER (3 capsules before bed every night).

    Q: Our 12 year old son has recently been diagnosed with asthma (9 months). Since beginning to play football 3 months ago we noticed he had difficulty after running full speed for a while and took him to the doctor. The doctor has prescribed inhalers as treatment (8.5 ProAir HFA Aerosol) and recently changed to 100/50 Advair. We understand that you were able to rid your childhood asthma and want to try your applicable herbal supplement. Please advise what we should order.

    A:

    I'd recommend the CHILDREN DETOX (liquid extracts) followed by a daily regimen of CHILDREN LUNG EXTRACT and MUCUS BUSTER TEA (1-2 cups daily) and use of our RESPIRATORY INSPIRANT. And you know the diet MUST change, right? Asthma deals with mucus and mucus is diet-related. The solution is not exclusively taking some herb, but to make changes to the lifestyle and diet.

    Q:

    A:

    Diabetes can often create a domino affect on the health as it slows up the circulation in the body. Men often experience erectile dysfunction due to certain health ailments like Diabetes. We recommend starting off with The Full Body Cleanse first to eliminate backed up toxins and waste from your system. In doing the cleanse, you’re detoxing all of your major organs including the lungs putting your overall health into a better state. Your body is always more receptive to healing from the conditions when your health is in a better state.

    The regimen and the diet for the cleanse helps to recondition your body, helping it distinguish the difference between refined sugar and sugar from a natural source. After completing the cleanse, move on to the Pancreas cleanse and Regimen to specifically help aid with the conditions of diabetes.  Cleansing helps give your body a reset, helping it function on it's own. After completing both cleanses, you can better assess what your body needs.  You can always try the Respiratory Cleanse and Regimen and the The Male Cleanse if needed after addressing your number one health issue.

    Q:

    A: We would recommend giving her the Lung Extract, Mucus Formula and Chest Salve. These formula's all have a different approach in addressing asthma, they all help recondition the health of the lungs. We suggest giving her only one capsule a day from the Mucus Formula. The Chest Salve is a product that we usually only include in our Respiratory Cleanse. Because it helps improve the health of the lungs, we would sell it separately. You can also incorporate the Respiratory Aid Extract into her regimen.

    Q: I want to heal from asthma. Should I start with the FULL BODY DETOX or the RESPIRATORY CLEANSE AND REGIMEN?

    A:

    We recommend starting with the Full Body Cleanse first immediately followed by the Respiratory Cleanse and Regimen. Doing the full body cleanse first allows your body to be in a healthier state and therefore more receptive to healing from asthma. The respiratory cleanse helps reduce the amount of mucus on the lungs helping your overall breathing and lung condition.
