I've 'had' asthma since I moved to Ontario, Canada from Europe at around age 4. Back in Europe as a baby, I had bronchitis, however no asthma, and I think the environment here in Ontario just set me off and I unfortunately got asthma.
Anyways, i've been battling this all my life, and I truly believe deep inside that we as humans have complete control over our bodies, including the ability to heal and remove from our bodies unwanted components.
Over the years I've read many different things regarding asthma. The scientific points of view, alternative medicine, spiritual healing, emotional healing (like EFT), etc... and to be honest, I am totally unsure what to believe.
Which of these methods works?
Which works faster, better?
How can these techniques be combined to produce fast, effective results in curing asthmatics?
How can we improve on these techniques?
These are all valuable questions I believe we as a community could collectively answer. You don't need to have a PhD in medicine or have millions of $$$'s for medical research in order to help. Every one of us has the ability to state opinions, do independent research, share stories of what has worked and what hasn't.
You know, EVERY opinion helps. Every success story is getting one more piece of hope for another. Every little bit of research is helpful.
On the local news recently they mentioned that a recent study had shown that 1 out of 10 people here have asthma. And they showed a school with young children, where a teacher asked them to raise their hands if they had asthma. How many raised their hands? 7 out of 20!
The principal noted that every year the number of 'inhalers' they carry has gone up significantly (nearly doubling yearly).
What does this all mean? Big money for inhaler manufacturers. More people coming into hospitals from asthma attacks. 'Wonderful' corticosteroids
for our children.
What is the cause? They say pollution, which may very well be the case. It definitely aggrevates the condition.
I'm asking any of you that may have stories of defeating asthma (or even battling asthma daily), interesting research, have tried certain products and can say if they helped/cured/did nothing... anything you feel is beneficial really, please contribute a few words (or more
I'll try to post updates on my research here whenever I have the time.
