World Asthma Month? Really?
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.

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:
