Carle is a bright, creative young boy but at school, he just doesn’t seem to function well. He has ADHD, anxiety and a bad temper.
He also has asthma. It can be quite severe at times. He has a history of frequent colds, allergies, chemical sensitivities, and bronchitis to go along with it. Like most kids with asthma, his pediatrician prescribed inhalers.
Now, why did I tell you about his behavior and ADHD if this is a blog post about asthma? Because, as I have shown time and again, when you treat a condition with conventional drugs, all these illnesses tend to become interconnected.
Rather expectedly, if you understand what synthetic drugs do, those who use inhalers often become aggressive and have difficulty with concentration. Anxiety caused by specific asthma medicines can also lead to generalized anxiety disorder, which has been shown to carry on for years.
Is this psychiatric condition a side effect of a drug? Some might call it that.
I call it a new disease.
We’ve exchanged bronchial spasms for a behavioral disorder, yet haven’t even cured the original disease! We’ve swapped normal aptitude in the classroom with an inability to learn and (sometimes) the ruining of social acceptance in school and other social circles.
Sounds to me like we’re accumulating diseases, not uprooting them.
Carle and his family have stepped onto the modern medical conveyor belt and will have a difficult time getting off unless they understand just how serious these drugs are on a young body and mind.
The irony is, if the school was to have its way, Carle would be put on more drugs to further suppress his newly acquired behavior.
I looked up steroid inhalers on PubMed, and here is what I found: they “prevent and control airway inflammation” and “decrease severity, frequency, and duration of asthma attacks and treat the attacks as they occur.”
I kept looking for the words “cure” or “life of living free from drugs,” but I could not find them.
I didn’t really expect to find those words.
The drugs are intended to suppress symptoms without regard to what they will likely cause elsewhere in Carle’s delicate system.
We’re told these drugs are tested, but on whom? Children with developing lungs and blooming personalities? Of course not.
By law, children are not tested on. Well, except children like Carle, under the guise of “proper medical intervention.” If enough children were treated in the same manner, and enough of them were reported with psychological damage, it might cause pause for the industry to change the formula (just in time for the next fall-out to present), but that's not likely for now, which essentially means Carle is the test.
In truth, we all are.
I don’t mind being part of the testing of a product such as a new refrigerator or smartphone, but I don’t want to be the lab rat for the pharmaceutical industry. And I especially don’t want my child to be one.
So what to do?
There are a few different ways we can approach a situation such as Carle’s. If his asthma was mild and his parents believed it could be controlled without submitting to an inhaler, they might decide not to give him one in the first place.
But unfortunately, most people don’t come to these kinds of conclusions until they discover just how dangerous drugs can be. This doesn’t happen until they, or someone they love, has suffered harm in which case, they could use one (not all) of the following Banerji Protocols:
- Kali carbonicum 200, every 7 days, for asthma in general
- If there is wheezing, Kali iodatum 6, twice daily can be employed as well.
- If there is gagging, particularly from an extrinsic cause such as cat dander, I also like Ipecac 30 every 1-3 hours if very severe, and less frequently if not. This is also of great value in those who have asthmatic coughing.
- Lachesis 200, one dose every other day, is a great medicine to help uproot asthma, but it should not be taken along with Kali carbonicum.
However, if extrinsic sources such as allergies are the main cause of asthma, other remedies must also be employed.
I won’t go into them this week, but chemical sensitivities, food intolerances, animal dander, pollen and dust, for example, ought to be represented in the remedy choices to help uproot them.
Asthma can be a life-threatening disease and it’s important to note if a medication is abruptly halted, a boomerang effect can become serious.
This is why it is not advisable to stop the use of prescribed drugs, even while on homeopathics, until it’s clear that the drug has become undeniably superfluous. It would be advisable for most drugs to be weaned off with the guidance of the prescribing practitioner.
Remember folks, Homeopathy is medicine — not herbs, vitamins, home remedies, or supplements — so, if the symptoms I've described here are not apparent, it is sloppy and potentially harmful to employ the remedies mentioned above.
There you have it, folks. Homeopathic medicines for asthma, free of the nasty side-effects and behavioral issues.
Now that’s what I call true medicine.
P.S. My flu has been uprooted by our beautiful homeopathics. I sounded raspy on and off for a few days, but never missed a day of work or family obligations. Meanwhile, one of the commenters on this blog offered a great tip; the specific genus epidemicus for this particular influenza. This is the remedy mostly likely to address en masse in the face of this epidemic. My staff is sourcing a pharmacy for you to purchase the medicine, so stay tuned. I hope to have this info for you by next week.
