It sure is great to have the warm weather. Today, I want to talk about a very serious condition that many suffer from.

Asthma is a chronic disease that affects the respiratory passages, which become filled with mucus, making it difficult to breath. Frequently, there is shortness of breath and the patient fears that he may choke to death. The severe attacks usually occur at night or early morning. Other symptoms include wheezing and dry coughing.  Asthma is considered an auto-immune disease, meaning that the body is attacking itself. This affliction is also believed to be due to hypersensitivity to inhaled or ingested substances such as, odors, pollen, dust, smoke, foods, etc.

There is no easy cure for Asthma. One must be very diligent when dealing with this disease, but there are several things that one can do to obtain relief from the symptoms of this debilitating disease. The corresponding organ to the lungs are the intestines. Often in the case of asthma, there will be problems with the bowels, so these must be addressed. Here are some helps.
For a more detailed explanation, please go to our website.
  • Water – Chronic dehydration is said to be linked to bronchoconstriction. One should drink at least ½  their body weight in ounces, ex.  140 lbs = 70 oz. of water. 
  • Magnesium –  Magnesium helps keep smooth muscle fibers relax and some have found help for their asthma by supplementing with it. 
  • Avoid gluten and eat a whole food diet -  There are those who claim that the Paleolithic diet helps with asthma. The diet consists of fresh fruit, vegetables, animal protein, olive oil, butter, and nuts.
  • Do a cleanse – Whenever there is a chronic condition, a cleanse is very important. 
  • Support the bowels -  Make sure to have two-three bowel movements a day. 
  • Calm the immune system – Since it is considered an auto-immune disease, we need to address this. Use the Immune Ease formula. 
  • Hot showers or hot tub – Hot baths are especially beneficial in producing perspiration and opening up the airways. You may add essential oils to the bath water.
  • Clean air – This is very important, so keep your house well ventilated, especially the sleeping room. Sleeping with the window open is a great option, or have a good air purification system.
  • Herbs – There are many herbs that are helpful for  asthma. You may take one or mix two or more of the following herbs: lobelia, coltsfoot, mullein, horehound, popular, vervain, boneweed chickweed, lungwort, skunk cabbage, masterwort, thyme, blue cohosh, pleurisy root, black cohosh, cayenne, bloodroot.
  • Essential oils – There are several essential oils that can help Asthma. 
  • Antioxidants - Building the immune system by taking antioxidants is a must. We recommend Juice Plus, as this is affordable, easy to take, and has clinically proven results.

Body Stress Release UPDATE!

Body Stress Release (BSR) practitioner that I had contacted, will not be able to come in January. I just visited with him this past week, and due to his own practice being busy, he will not be able to come to Sioux Falls until June. I have contacted another practitioner and he is considering coming in the Spring (March/April).

I will have to work out the details regarding this, but regardless, we must have a minimum number of people to ensure that it will be worth his coming. If you have not yet let me know that you would like to participate, please let me know. I believe the minimum may be 20 and the max 36.  Again the cost is $65 per session, and 3 sessions are recommended at the beginning.

For more information about BSR's ability to assist the body in releasing stored tension which becomes locked into the physical structure when the body fails to adapt to stress, visit the Herbs4You website.
