My 8 yr old daughters asthma is out of control. I’m into alternative meds. Any suggestions?
Q:She is currently trying singular, but it isn’t working. Uses albuteral every day (not good, I know). I prefer alternative treatment whenever possible. I’ve tried quercitin (sp) and bromeline and several other methods. Anyone tried something that really improves asthma.
More Answers to “My 8 yr old daughters asthma is out of control. I’m into alternative meds. Any suggestions?“Asthma Asthma is a condition which affects the small airways of the lungs. People with asthma have sensitive, or ‘twitchy’ airways. When these sensitive airways are exposed to certain ‘triggers’ the airways can narrow, leading to difficulty in breathing.The narrowing of the airways is caused by inflammation and swelling of the lining of the airways, the tightening of the muscles around the airways and the production of excess mucus. The result is a reduction of the flow of air in and out of the lungs. As we breathe, air moves in and out of the lungs through branching airways. People with asthma have sensitive or ‘twitchy’ airways. When they are exposed to certain ‘triggers’ (e.g. cigarette smoke), their airways narrow making it hard for them to breathe. The three main factors that cause this narrowing of the airway are:1. The inside lining of the airways becomes red and swollen (inflamed).2. The muscle around the airways tighten.3. Extra mucus may be produced. Why do people get asthma? We don’t really know, but we do know that many people are born with a tendency to develop asthma. There is often a history of asthma, eczema or hayfever in brothers, sisters and parents and close relatives. Asthma can occur for the first time at any age. There is also evidence that exposure to certain things, for example cigarette smoke during pregnancy and early childhood, increases the risk of developing asthma.What are the main symptoms?Wheezing – a high pitched raspy sound on breathingCoughing Shortness of breathTightness in the chest These symptoms may vary from person to person, and from time to time within the same person. Some people have all the symptoms, while some may only have a cough or a wheeze. What triggers asthma symptons? colds and the flucigarette smoke exercise inhaled allergens e.g. pollens, moulds, animal hair and dust mitechanges in temperature and weatherchemicals and strong smellssome foods and food preservatives, flavourings and colourings certain drugs e.g. aspirin BUT…often we do not know what triggers an episode. Can asthma be cured?Asthma cannot be cured but it can be controlled. Getting your asthma under control means that you are able to do your daily activities and lead a normal life without having asthma symptoms. Can TRANSFER FACTOR assist to minimise that inflammation? Asthma Symptoms Influenced by Formula Feeding and Dog OwnershipAsthma symptoms in children in the first year of life, were more often influenced by exclusive formula feeding and dog ownership, according to a study presented at the 2004 AAAAI Annual Meeting.

The reasons for the health benefits??The child receives the benefit of the NATURAL immune intelligence from its mother – that the child CANNOT receive from “formula”. ——————————…Transfer factors are made up of three separate fractions that balance the immune system for a more effective immune response. The three fractions are the INDUCER, ANTIGEN SPECIFIC and SUPPRESSOR fractions. The inducer fraction provides a basic training to get the immune system into shape. The antigen specific fraction functions like a set of “wanted” posters that help identify critical features of the infectious enemy. Finally, the suppressor fraction is able to recognize the enemy’s defeat and then calm the immune system back to a normal level.Unlike most immune supplements that only provide building blocks for proper immune function, transfer factors also provide immune intelligence. It is the immune information and education that helps to focus the immune system, keeping it on task and effective.Transfer Factors make up a highly concentrated, immune messaging system – designed by nature – to transfer critical immune programming from one individual to another. It is important to recognise that Transfer Factors are non-species specific. This means that their immune power is universally beneficial to all humans and animals that are mammals.In conclusion, Transfer Factors BALANCE the immune system through boosting it, and controlling it.With the KEY to the cause of asthma being the INFLAMMATION OF THE AIRWAYS…. Transfer Factors have been proven to minimise the degree of inflammation within the body. Whilst at this particular time of writing, there have not been conclusive studies of the effect of Transfer Factor to minimise the inflammation, we have received many Personal Testimonies of the beneficial results of taking transfer factor.Testimonials From People Who Use Transfer Factor and 4Life productsWith terrible asthma since age 7, I began 4Life™ Transfer Factor™ 2 1/2 weeks ago and I’ve gone from 20 medications & inhalers, to one pill and one inhaler. Darlene J.My son Ryan has asthma. He was on three inhalers per day. After 9 days on Transfer Factor, he stopped using his inhalers. We took him to the Doctor and learned that his lung function had returned to normal. He has not touched an inhaler since July of 98. Kevin O.”I have suffered from a severe asthma and allergy condition. I used an inhaler twice a day. I was literally miserable. After taking Transfer Factor™ for a month, I have amazingly improved. I now use the inhaler less than half as much and wake up without the swollen eyes and congestion.” Justin P.
