World Asthma Month? Really?

World Asthma Day?Yes, today (May 1) is world asthma day, and May is world asthma month. The theme this year is “You Can Control Your Asthma” (with pharmaceuticals, of course). The Global Initiative for Asthma states that the intent of these are to “improve asthma awareness and care around the world.”

Rather, the only “awareness” being pushed is which pharmaceuticals are prescribed for the condition.

Featured by the Centers for Disease Control, nothing in the Global Initiative’s “Asthma Day” announcement and the Centers for Disease Control’s statements discuss any information about how to prevent asthma or how to reverse it.

It is as if the condition is irreversible. It is as if asthma is a condition that parents and their children can do nothing about, other than control it with medication.

Yet significant research indicates otherwise. Research indicates that asthma is related to the diets of children and their parents, toxic exposures to air pollutants, and other lifestyle factors. Clinical data shows that asthma is a reversible inflammatory condition.

Research has illustrated that making changes in diet and lifestyle factors can prevent asthma and lesson its symptoms. Furthermore, a number of medicinal herbal remedies have been shown to provide control of symptoms while reversing airway inflammation without the many side effects related to pharmaceuticals – which tend to require additional dosage over time to achieve the same level of “control.”

Yes, this is illustrated by a combination of peer-reviewed scientific research and clinical experience, some that has taken place over centuries and millions of asthma patients.

This research and clinical data has been gathered and brought together within the book:

Asthma Solved Naturally: The Surprising Underlying Causes and Hundreds of Natural Strategies to Beat Asthma

Case Adams is a California Naturopath with a PhD in Natural Health Sciences, and Board Certified Alternative Medicine Practitioner. He has authored 26 books on natural healing strategies. “My journey into writing about alternative medicine began about 9:30 one evening after I finished with a patient at the clinic I practiced at over a decade ago. I had just spent the last two hours explaining how diet, sleep and other lifestyle choices create health problems and how changes in these, along with certain herbal medicines and other natural strategies can radically yet safely turn ones health around. As I drove home that night, I realized I needed to get this knowledge out to more people. So I began writing about health with a mission to reach those who desperately need this information. The strategies in my books and articles are backed by scientific evidence along with wisdom handed down through traditional medicines for thousands of years.” Case connects with the elements by surfing, hiking and being a beach bum.
