ASTHMA SOLVED NATURALLY: The Surprising Underlying Causes and Hundreds of Natural Strategies to Beat Asthma
ASTHMA RATES ARE GOING UP.
IS IT JUST MORE AIR POLLUTION?
ACTUALLY ITS NOT THAT SIMPLE.
THERE ARE OTHER FACTORS, INCLUDING DIET.
AND YET DOCTORS STILL TELL THEIR PATIENTS THAT ASTHMA IS LARGELY HEREDITARY.
IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE HAS ASTHMA, YOU DESERVE TO KNOW WHAT CAUSED IT.
YOU ALSO DESERVE TO KNOW WHAT NATURAL REMEDIES HAVE BEEN SHOWN SCIENTIFICALLY TO REVERSE IT.
WELL, THIS BOOK DOES BOTH. YES, IT SOMETIMES HAS TO GO DEEP INTO THE MEDICAL SCIENCE TO EXPLAIN IT ALL, BUT IN THE END THIS BOOK OFFERS REAL SOLUTIONS.
DESCRIPTION: Millions of people suffer from asthma, and asthma rates have been going up dramatically in the last few decades, primarily among industrialized nations. What is causing this almost epidemic surge of asthma? Is it as simple as air pollution and allergy triggers? More importantly, can asthma be reversed, and if so, how? “Asthma Solved Naturally” provides the surprising answers to these questions. Rejecting the ‘dumbing down’ of this condition as often portrayed by conventional medicine, the author – a California Naturopath – comprehensively demonstrates the underlying causes of asthma while providing hundreds of clinically and scientifically-verified low-cost natural strategies – some thousands of years old.
