Young Asthma... Allergy May Not be Cause
Childhood Asthma is a chronic lung disease characterized by tight airways -- a result of airways being too responsive. Our airways are meant to respond to harmful substances in the air. Our airways shrink when we're in a smoky atmosphere, protecting our delicate lung tissues from the noxious ingredients in the smoke. They should go back to normal in fresh air but it doesn't always work that way with asthmatics.
That's the official point of view, from a medical industry that claims not to know how to cure asthma. The people who do cure the problem say that asthma is your body's attempt to compensate for bad breathing methods. So you should learn to breathe properly.
Here are some warning signs
- Sleeping baby breathes faster than 40/minute.
- Child refuses suckling.
- Ribs are prominent from the effort of breathing in.
- Chest is enlarged.
- Your baby's face becomes pale or very red.
- Lack of breath makes him/her cry less for shorter times.
- Gasps breath through open mouth and widened nostrils.
- Grunts during feeding.
Asthma and pregnancy
So much for asthma in kids. Now how could mothers cause asthma? (I'm not letting fathers off the hook either.) Each breath you take is shared with your baby. That means that if you are gasping for breath yourself your baby is getting even less air. there is a free cure and a free emergency treatment available.
Are you looking for a remedy that can't harm your child? Try asthma homeopathic medicine. Even if it doesn't work, it can't harm your baby.
We can't do anything to force doctors to tell us about cheap cures. They say that they can't cure asthma and then have the nerve to expect us to buy their medication loaded with side effects. UPDATE: I've just heard that a doctor will lose his membership if he tells people about the free cure for asthma because the asthma drug companies will lose money.
Here is the official point of view of the medical industry: "Remember: Using asthma medicine during pregnancy is much safer than letting your asthma get out of control. Such asthma medicines as inhaled beta-agonists (quick relief medicines like Maxair or Proventil), cromolyn (medicines that prevent triggers from causing reactions in your lungs, like Intal), and inhaled steroids (long-term controller medicines like Flovent) are safe for pregnant women when you take them as directed by your doctor. Please don't read the instructions as it might decrease our income." Some of that is untrue.
Singing makes you feel good and the feelings are passed on to your child. Your unborn child can hear the music and will recognize tunes before it can understand words. If you sing along with your husband it will make you feel even better and lessen your chance of having to use pediatric asthma medication.
Prevention of asthma in toddlers
The immune system of your baby must get some practice killing bugs or it will have no defences later on. It is normal for a baby to crawl through the dirt in the garden and even put some in its mouth. It's fine to lick up dust mites. It was on Australian TV recently that a shattering discovery had been made. In recent research it was found that dust mites had no effect whatsoever on asthma in spite of everyone believing the opposite.
Doctors responsible for asthma in kids
Parents aren't the only ones to blame. doctors cause a lot of the trouble in their endless attempts to sell you more drugs. Tests show that antibiotics destroy the correct activity in a child's intestine. This leads to impaired immune systems and asthma.
Abusing prescription drugs is as common as, or maybe even more common than, street drug use - and doctors are often to blame. the FDA decided that not enough people had died from asthma prescription drugs to make public oppinion force them to ban these profitable drugs.
Steroid drugs prescribed by doctors can make your child prone to diseases by weakening the immune system.
Danger in the showers. When chlorine vaporizes it combines with other airborne particles and forms chloroform gas which is a known cause and contributor to asthma and other respiratory problems. The U.S. EPA states that "Due to chlorine and showering, there is an elevated level of chloroform gas in virtually every home in America...". soaking in it in a swimming pool is even worse.
Sing Your Cares Away With Asthma Singing
I can still remember the fun we had singing together when I was a child. Singing releases endorphins into the bloodstream, making you feel positive.
But it has other benefits too. It teaches control in breathing (not the best but good) and the vibrations help to loosen mucus in the airways.
Wouldn't it be grand to have a baby that sang instead of crying? My uncle was a band leader. One day he stopped practicing the trumpet at a very difficult passage, but his baby girl kept on singing through the difficult passage from her pram behind him. Let your baby hear music all the time.
