Q: My grandnephew was a premature baby that is now 4yrs. old. He has asthma and your expertise on herbal methods and natural healing I know will help him get rid of this disease.
What advice do you have and what can we give him to get rid of the asthma?
We have a friend that just lost her 5yrs. old to this thing and it is very fresh in our minds.
My grandnephew just had an attack last Sunday also.
A: Asthma is a condition that I myself experienced as a youth. Growing up on a farm and drinking cow’s milk in large amounts and on a daily basis is exactly what had caused it. I was completely cured from asthma within a few weeks after eliminating all diary products and implementing certain herbs.
Asthma is simply MUSCUS in the lungs. That mucus causes the internal tissues of the lungs as well as the bronchial tubes to be inflamed causing breathing difficulties. The mucus, in the majority of cases, is produced due to the consumption of dairy products, however, there are also other acidic processed foods that play a role in developing this uncomfortable condition.
In cases of asthma, the two most important steps are:
1) Taking ALL dairy (milk, lactaid, yogurt, cheese, eggs, sour cream, etc) OUT of the diet. Stores like Whole Foods Market carry dairy alternatives, although faux cheeses etc. should only be used during the transition stage. In terms of milk, there are many healthy alternatives including almond milk, hemp milk, hazelnut milk, cashew milk, etc.
2) Implementing the following herbs: lobelia, mullein leaf, fenugreek seeds, and comfrey leaf. All can be taken as a tea or in capsule form. The herbs should be taken 6 times a week.
The herbal and dietary regimen should be followed until the mucus is eliminated and the condition is gone (the timeframe will vary per individual). The dairy-free diet is to be maintained going forward.
