Natural ways to cure Asthma and Allergies.
Asthma medication was a big part of my life. I could go out without my puffers and if I did I would freak out. From birth I had bronchial problems. Puffers, anti-histamines and carrying round an Epipen full of adrenalin were just part of my life dependant on drugs to control my allergies. At 14 I started juicing. I began with combinations like carrot and apple, I gradually progressing to more extraordinary and unusual taste sensations. Now I love anything with ginger and a chunk of turmeric.
Asthma and allergies are indicators that the body has resorted to an increase in production of histamine. This is the sensor for the metabolism of water and its distribution within the body. According to Dr F Batmanghelidj in his wonderful book “Your Body’s Many Cries For Water”, when the body is adequately hydrated (link to blog of hydration) histamine activity will remain unexaggerated. When the body is dehydrated, histamine activity becomes exaggerated for water regulation and this has a knock on effect for the immune system and lung function. I wish I had read this book while I was growing up. Anyone with allergies and asthma in the family should get a copy of this book.
Juicing has been my passion of mine since my Mum gave me a juicer for my 14th Birthday, together with a book called the Uses of Juices which I LOVE and still refer to regularly. My aim is to help people, with the power of juicing have more energy and create a healthier lifestyle free from pain and disease. I have experienced the first hand benefits of good nutrition such as more energy; increased tolerance of stress; balanced moods; and stable blood sugar. I suffered allergies and asthma for my whole life. So when I was 14 wrote a diary of my diet to help improve my asthma. But I still battled with asthma until the age of 32.
Mobile Juice Therapy
Within the first year of starting my juicing business in 2003 I started to get really sick. My health goals needed more focus. My allergies were getting worse. I peaked at 12 anaphylactic episodes in one year. I was more dependent on my asthma puffers, I was stressed and was getting very bad headaches. I had to do something. I came across a nutritionist and through kinesiology, a strict elimination process, tinctures and zapping she helped heal me. Her name is Hillary Newman. She diagnosed me with a high candida count, a hook worm, limes disease and parasites. I was put on a very strict diet that included very few food groups no fruit, no sugar, no grains. We had to starve the parasites and get rid of the hook worm that was creating breathlessness. Hillary said I would have been born with this – it was probably passed down from my mum.
When I was first diagnosed, I immediately began on herbal treatments – I took various herbal blends that included the usual anti-parasite herbs including:
Black walnuts (Juglans nigra), Wormwood (Artemisia annua), Garlic (Allium sativum),Barberry (Berberis vulgaris)
The philosophy of nutritional healing
The philosophy of nutritional healing says that it takes at least 3 generations to get to the level of toxicity and this made sense to me. I did several ghastly treatments including cysteine tablets with salt and yogurt, wormwood tinctures and lots more. But over a period of 6 weeks I was cured of candida and asthma. My headaches were gone and I no longer wanted to jump out of a moving vehicle. I go and see Hillary most years for a general service – just like my car. Hillary zaps parasites. You hold a copper rod while an electronic frequency travels through the rod. It is pretty freaky but it really works.
I am delighted to say that I am have remained asthma free for the last 13 years. I no longer use any medication. I really think hydration and elimination are key to cure asthma naturally I have two gorgeous boys and after the birth of my second son, I went on a juice fast and decided to enrol in a Diploma in Nutritional Healing. It was important to me to not pass any allergies and asthma on to my boys. They are both allergy free.
Intestinal parasites occupy the intestines. They have an impact on the ability to uptake essential nutrients and minerals. Taking medication also harms the beneficial gut flora. I would highly recommend anyone who is mending themselves from intestinal parasites seek the help of a naturopath who also specialises in parasites and allergies. Arrange to have blood tests to determine levels of things such as iron, active B12, zinc and protein to be sure to treat any deficiencies. My results showed very low iron, very low B12 and low zinc.
Quitting fruit and sugar
Quitting sugar was of major importance in feeling relief from the symptoms of intestinal parasites, and in healing my gut. I had to eliminate all fruit for 6 weeks and also all sugar.
Probiotic rich foods
I increased my intake of homemade probiotic-rich foods and created regular batches of:
• milk kefir
• coconut kefir
