I was broke, sick and scared. My asthma had become much worse. Doctors prescribed loads of asthma drugs, even hospitalized me for nearly a month. I showed little improvement, but the prescriptions were escalating, the unwanted side effects were bizarre and dangerous. The end result had left me on the brink of bankruptcy. Still I was sick. Could internet technology save my life?
I tuned on the computer, began researching the internet about asthma and alternative cures. It was my last hope. I was truly amazed at the wealth of information. I began formulating my own personal plan of attack.
Surprisingly, I learned about numerous simple, free or cheap remedies for asthma.
I started with the water cure. Water helps flush toxins and allergens out of the system. With all that water, I needed sea salt. Sea salt has amazing benefits, besides the good taste.
A splash of organic apple cider vinegar, was incorporated into my daily water intake. I coughed up loads of mucus, but my breathing was becoming much clearer.
I began utilizing Wasabi and horseradish into my meals. Horseradish contains a compound called sinigrin, which acts as a decongestant.
I began cooking with cayenne red pepper, tumeric and garlic. I started trying to avoid processed foods, sticking to healthy ingredients.
I sought out local honey to beef up my immune system against the local triggers of pollen. I eliminated all sugars and sweeteners in favor of a bit of honey made locally.
I learned how to take three minutes here and there to utilize self-hypnosis to urge my bronchial airways to open up, expand and breathe. I practiced chanting to focus my body on healing.
I read how exercise could strengthen the lungs, improve breathing, lessen asthma. I had a million excuses not to exercise. So, I adopted a pathetic needy dog and began walking. At first we barely crept along, while I labored away breathing. Now, I throw my shoulders back, suck in my gut, walking briskly.
A year after I began my odyssey, of researching nearly everything I could find on the internet about alternative treatments for asthma, I am nearly symptom free. The old emergency asthma drugs, are tucked away in a cabinet. I’ve only used them three or four times in the last year, not multiple daily times, as was my practice before. I thank my lucky stars I had the opportunity to utilize the technology of the internet to save my own life.
