Here are the very effective, natural supplements you can take to treat your asthma. These are recommendations for adults and for children over 12 years of age who are in good general health (besides being 'asthmatic') only.
TO STOP AN ASTHMA ATTACK IN IT'S TRACKS:
Take 1 (one) 50 mg Lobelia capsule or 7-10 drops of liquid extract
2 (two) Nettle Root Power capsules
2 (two) Vitamin C 500 mg caps or tabs (=1,000 mg)
with some water. If you take nothing else in the event of uncontrolled asthma, TAKE THE LOBELIA! (For extreme cases, call the Paramedics immediately, of course.)
This is a tried-and-true remedy which has been around since humankind discovered herbal medicine and I have used the regimen above in practice for over thirty years now.
I will write specifics about the supplements above separately in future features of my 'Asthma Chronicles Series' which is indexed on the upper right column of the home page of www.DearOnesHealingMinistry.blogspot.com
Lobelia may be taken IN ADDITION TO your inhaler treatment....or as a 'rescue dose' when it's not yet time for your next inhaler (or other asthma medication) treatment. It is also a terrific 'first line of defense' when someone suffers from their first asthma attack, especially if it is out of 'the-clear-blue' (in which case I would immediately look to FOOD ALLERGIES, also to be discussed in the future!)
HOW TO USE LOBELIA CAPSULES: You may take up to three (3) lobelia (50 mg) capsules per day, as needed. This herb is wonderful for use 'between inhaler treatments' or especially when...God forbid...your inhaler or oral asthma medications totally fail to provide you with relief. Sadly, all inhalers fail after a while (usually within two years) as the body acclimates itself to the pharmaceuticals contained therein.
The brand to use is: SOLARAY Lobelia (Lobelia inflata) 50 mg per capsule:
Here are two options above currently listed in my store: http://astore.amazon.com/deaoneheamin-20 As always, I will provide you with the best picks I can offer at the lowest prices available.
The liquid form of Lobelia that I recommend in the event of throat closure and when persons are unable to swallow a capsule is a vinegar liquid extract of NATURE'S HERBS WILD COUNTRYSIDE EXTRACT OF LOBELIA. It is usually available in many Health Food Stores. Place 7-10 drops of the extract into the mouth of the asthmatic person, followed by some water. The extract will be absorbed under the tongue and provide welcome relief very rapidly, usually within 5 minutes...all after you have called 911, of course. This preparation tastes like Italian salad dressing.
Another liquid preparation that may be 'used in a pinch' is NATURE'S ANSWER LOBELIA EXTRACT IN ORGANIC ALCOHOL. The dose is 7-10 drops under the tongue, or swished in the mouth with some water. Relief, again, will very rapid.
PARENTS, CAREGIVERS AND THOSE WITH CONFIRMED OR SUSPECTED ALLERGIES: Be sure to carry at least six Lobelia capsules (50 mg capsules) with you at all times. If you don't mind the weight, you can carry one of the liquid extracts with you. In the event that you have to use your Lobelia on yourself or others, be sure to replace your purse/pocket supply immediately. Lobelia could save you life or that of a loved one or of someone in your midst and is something that belongs in everyone's emergency kits.
With the way things are in the world today, it makes sense to be prepared in the event that it is impossible to refill one's medical prescriptions or if those prescriptions are lost or destroyed. Run all this by your medical doctor if you plan on using my recommendations. Also, seek the advice of an Alternative Health Care Professional in your area, if you are able to, so that you can reap the benefits of the best of both Alternative and Traditional Medicine. Have you doctor communicate with this person so that your health care encompasses the best of all treatment options.
Now that I've provided you with herbal and natural emergency asthma treatment options, stay tuned for future advice on how to help your body become less 'trigger-happy' when exposed to asthma-inducing substances and factors. We may not always be able to 'avoid trigger's, but the wonderful herbs and other natural substances God gives us are here to help our bodies be the best that they can be and we do well to use these gifts, with gratitude and compassion.
For you with Love in Christ.
