"As I developed my Healing Program, I also became aware of another fact that is still unknown to the majority of physicians: There is a powerful link-of both cause and recovery-among autism, ADHD, asthma, and allergies. To most casual observers, and even to most doctors, these 4-A conditions appear to be largely unrelated. However, beneath the surface there is an unmistakable, unshakable web of interrelationship among the 4-A disorders, characterized primarily by toxicity in the brain and body, which causes metabolic dysfunction."

"Environmental controls: Actions that reduce exposure to asthma triggers, such as mold and dander, in the home, school, and work environments. Enzyme: A substance that increases the speed of a chemical reaction, such as the digestion of food. Executive function: Hie cognitive ability to control impulses and to act rationally. Flavonoids: Plant chemicals that are helpful in many essential body functions, including protection from free radicals. Free radical: An unstable molecule that harms the cells, including those of the immune system and nervous system."

"Also, simple deficiencies in brain nutrition, caused by our unhealthy and often toxic food supply, can contribute to the onset of not only full-blown autism, but also ADHD, allergies, and asthma. The causal links among these disorders go on and on. These links even extend, to a significant degree, to other modern childhood epidemics, including those of learning disabilities, depression, teen suicide, substance abuse, speech pathologies, diabetes, childhood obesity, and recurrent ear infections."

"Fungi: Mold plants that lack stems, and provoke asthma and allergy attacks. GABA: Gamma aminobutyric acid, a calming neurotransmitter that is often low among people with autism and ADHD. Gastrointestinal: Referring to or affecting the stomach and intestines. Glutathione: A protein tripeptide, made from glutamic acid, cysteine, and glycine. It is critical for binding and detoxifying heavy metals, and is the main cellular antioxidant. Gluten: Proteins found in wheat, oats, barley, rye, and triticale. They often cause food reactions, which can result in neurological symptoms."

"Sing while you are working around the house, especially songs with lots of words,- sing along with the radio. A vocalist or singer 'throws the voice'?breathing out long and in short. There's no harm in trying it, after all, people who sing or whistle while they are working are usually happy people—and happy people are usually healthy people!"
- Dr Ron Roberts, Asthma Controlled Naturally: Techniques That Work (Get the book.)

"Seaweed stimulates the immune system and in the past folk medicine used it to treat respiratory and gastrointestinal problems. Seaweed has also been shown to lower cholesterol and blood pressure and to maintain balanced thyroid activity. Sourced from the sea bed, seaweed has added minerals not usually associated with 'earthly produce. Japanese cuisine uses seaweed extensively, but Western cooking is not as adventurous. Rather than being served as a vegetable, or in sheets of nori wrapping sushi, we are more likely to encounter seaweed in powdered form or incorporated in prepared foods."

"Avoiding problems or worrying about them does not help us handle them any better. The secret of balanced stress is learning to cope with the underlying causes. Even though we may not have control over the events around us, we can have control over how we react to them and minimise their effects. To create a balanced life, one that flows easily rather than one that is a struggle, we must first want to have a balanced mind and body. An important part of being out of balance is that often we don't feel like doing anything about it."

"Excellent, double-blind, placebo-controlled trials showed that homeopathy works for, among many conditions, asthma,21 diarrhea,22 upper respiratory tract infections in children^ and even heart disease.2?Of at least 105 trials of homeopathy, 81 showed positive results. The most unassailable were carried out in Glasgow by Dr David Reilly whose double-blind, placebo-controlled studies showed that homeopathy works for asthma, with all the usual checks and balances of a pristine scientific study.2?"

"In the tests, subjects who were known to have asthma were given a vapor that the researchers informed them was a chemical irritant. Although it was really only an atomized saline solution, almost half of the participants developed breathing problems, with some experiencing a full-blown asthma attack! When they were told that they were being treated with another, healing substance, they recovered immediately. In reality, however, the new treatment was only saline in water as well."

"Graham, testified that other drugs still on the mar- ket were unsafe, including Accutane and Arava (for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis) that cause "an unacceptably high risk of acute liver failure and death;"148 Crestor (a cholesterol lowering drug) that causes myopathy and rhabdomyalysis; Meridia (a weight loss drug) that causes heart arrhythmias; and Serevent (an asthma drug) that causes a three-fold increase in the risk of death from asthma."
- Jonathan W. Emord, The Rise of Tyranny (Get the book.)

"How about arthritis, asthma, skin lesions like psoriasis, eczema, and autoimmune diseases like lupus, multiple sclerosis, and Crohn's? Ironically, we're looking for the sinister cause of the staggering increase in childhood asthma, all the while stuffing our youngsters with refined grain products. Is it any wonder that we're depressed, achy, and having our hips and knees replaced right and left? But, evidence is mounting that high-dose omega-3 therapy is effective in reversing many of these inflammatory conditions. What's surprising is that we are only now rediscovering these facts."

"Standard, non-cardio-selective beta blockers can trigger asthma attacks. If you have asthma and take one of the standard medications, you could get worse. In heart failure, Coreg is the drug of choice if you don't mind spending an extra $100 a month. It also functions as an antioxidant. Insurance often covers this medication but not always. Some people may not tolerate Coreg, but most do. Benefits may not be experienced for months. These drugs have the potential to amplify depressive symptoms in people already depressed."

"I had this severe asthma attack while doing disaster relief work for the government, and an attorney (who had asthma) told me that he could cure my asthma without any drugs, that all I had to do was try his diet. I was so sick, so depressed, I thought—why not? He put me on a low-fat, high-carbohydrate, medium-protein diet. Within a week I was better, and as long as I stayed on that diet, I never had asthma again. I found out I was allergic to milk and sugar. He told me that asthma was nothing more than hypoglycemia of one form, that it was the opposite of diabetes."
- Elaine Feuer, Innocent Casualties : The FDA's War Against Humanity (Get the book.)

"And one human trial showed that asthma patients on a restricted diet for two months — three meals one day and only five hundred calories the next—had fewer markers of oxidative stress and inflammation in their blood (and their asthma symptoms improved). This finding supports the theory that imposing mild stress on the cells—in this case depriving them of fuel — makes them more resilient to future challenges and reduces free radicals. "It's kind of like exercising for an hour every day," Mattson says. "It's a mild stress, but as long as there's a recovery period, it's good."

"One study found that children who regularly ate oily fish such as salmon or mackerel had a lower risk of developing asthma. On the other hand, studies that looked at children and adults who already had asthma found that oily fish had no effect on the illness.7'8 In this case, I'm not sure that the evidence is anywhere near strong enough to recommend EFA supplementation in those with asthma. However, I wouldn't hesitate to advise people who already have asthma, or who want to prevent it in their children, to go ahead and include more fish on the menu."

"The researchers concluded: "The results of this analysis provide further evidence that ambient soy dust is very asthmogenic and that asthma morbidity in a community can be influenced by exposures in the ambient atmosphere." Soy contains built-in insecticides called isoflavones (genistein and daidzein). Isoflavones are estrogen-like substances that have the same effect in the body as estrogen, and eating soy can make a person estrogenic, contributing to problems such as cancer, irritability and mood swings, fat gain from the waist down, fibrocystic breast disease, and uterine fibroids."

"Some of the reported benefits of the omega-3s include protection against heart disease, strokes, and clots in the lungs; anti-carcinogenic activity against tumors; protection against diabetes; prevention and treatment of arthritis; and treatment for asthma, PMS, allergies, inflammatory diseases, water retention, rough or dry skin, and multiple sclerosis. The omega-3 s are reported to increase vitality and contribute to smoother skin, shinier hair, softer hands, smoother muscle action, the normalization of blood sugar, increased cold weather resistance, and a generally improved immune system."

"Improvement in energy synthesis and turnover Cardiac and Noncardiac Concerns Specific clinical conditions in which magnesium deficiency has been implicated for playing a pathophysiological role include hypertension, ischemic heart disease, arrhythmias, pre-eclampsia, eclampsia, and asthma. It also contributes to insulin resistance, and has been implicated in diabetes. Two conditions where magnesium is now considered the therapeutic agent of choice are preeclampsia and torsades de pointes."

"The condition of acidity thus may be a contributing factor to many different diseases, including piles, cancer, kidney and liver trouble, gallstones and gall bladder infections, impotency, high blood pressure and heart disease, strokes, asthma, and allergies. If the morning urine is consistently above 7.2, it is highly suggestive that the blood is too alkaline. Typical symptoms of excess alkalinity are muscle spasms, cramps, hyperreactivity, spaciness, a sense of ungroundedness, and mental imbalance."

"If you have asthma, bronchitis, emphysema, or if you smoke or recently quit smoking (within six months), you should not use this drug. Because of possible damage to the lungs, you should have your lung function checked six months after starting to use inhalable insulin, and then every year thereafter. Furthermore, if you currently need injectable insulin, inhaled insulin can be used at mealtime, but not as a replacement for your longer-acting injections."

"There was a significant decrease in asthma symptoms. Twenty-four patients (69 percent) fulfilled the treatment. Of these, 71 percent reported improvement at four months and 92 percent at one year.18 Osteoporosis is significantly higher in meat eaters or even women who drink three or more glasses of milk per day. Research suggests that the higher amounts of protein create an acidity that forces the bones to give up calcium to neutralize the acidity. The high phosphorus content in meat actually pulls calcium from the bones."

"Wellmark, the insurer, had helped spur the rise in antidepressants by asking physicians in its network to have patients—whether visiting the doctor for asthma, an annual physical, or a broken leg—answer nine written questions about their mood. Wellmark said doctors should give the quiz to patients who appeared tired, complained of unexplained symptoms, had many worries, could not get enough sleep, were having problems at work or home, or had already visited a physician several times that year. This would cover a substantial number of the patients in any physician's waiting room."

"AstraZeneca, the maker of the asthma drug Pulmicort, had paid the creators of Sesame Street to promote everydaykidz.com during its television episodes and in Sesame Street magazine. The Everydaykidz website was designed for children ages one to eight. It offered a host of games, stories, and art activities, as well as Pulmi, a froglike animated creature adept at cartwheels, that the company called a "thing-a-ma-jiggie." To access the games, parents were required to provide the drug company with their children's names, addresses, birth dates, and details on their health conditions."

"Executives at GlaxoSmithKline were talking about the company's new asthma drug called Advair, which was nothing more than a combination of two of the company's older medicines. The drugs had a new name and a fresh marketing campaign, but patients still had the same two drugs. Then there were the companies that tried to extend their rich monopolies by introducing what they said were new and improved versions of products that had become wildly successful. Schering-Plough was preparing to sell Clarinex, which it said was even better than its best-selling allergy drug Claritin."
