Allergies & Asthma :: Approaching Relief Naturally

More and more children in the United States suffer with allergies and asthma – and numbers continue to rise.  With concerns about long-term side effects of prescription drugs, our family took an approach to relieving symptoms naturally.

We do appreciate traditional medical care — our allergists and physicians have been great.

We also seek to help our children’s bodies function as much as possible on their own, with healthy lungs and clear respiratory passages.

I’ve written a series of posts on the approach we took and the tips, resources, and natural remedies we found helpful.

Here they are in order:

Hi Daniele- I’m glad I found your website (actually via browsing Pinterest).Amazing how the world gets connected…. anyways I had childhood asthma that pretty much got under control when my parents treated my allergies. But I always had mild flare ups through teens and 20s when I got sick or occasional extreme Temps. No biggie.

I got bronchitis in January and now I’m recovering from the flu and had a MASSIVE asthma attack rendering my rescue inhaler useless. Docs have me on treatment but obviously I need to be proactive in my health. I found a lot of bloggers who advocate getting rid of traditional medicine and holistic approaches. Glad you’re not doing that. Not breathing is pretty scary.

I’m really curious about how our diet can impact our breathing – from foods that support muscle health, herbs that fight inflammation, and now what you’re pointing out- how most of our illnesses are fought first in the gut. I’ll definitely be reading your posts.


Hello! My 7 yr old son was just diagnosed with asthma this past week, and it seems to acting up very badly. School nurse sent him home, we took him to the e.r. immediately. The Drs there gave him a steroid and breathing treatments before sending him home. He was prescribed the steroid and an inhaler. My problem is that I want this to be cured. My wished for him are to have an asthma free life not something we’re keeping at bay. While that may be false hope, I definitely do not want him on prescriptions. Before this he’s already been exposed to steroids as a baby because of severe eczema and I’ve always felt it stunted his growth in height, and he can have a very short temper at times. I’m no expert but I believe the steroid effected him in these ways. Please help with any advice. My nerves are on edge. Our family wishes for our little boy to have a happy life without complications due to asthma.


I have had ASTHMA my whole life but about 7 years ago my asthma got so bad and was diagnosed of EMPHYSEMA/COPD which was most likely due to the asthma. I was on double antibiotics and steroids, still didn’t feel any better. My lungs were constantly wheezing in all four chambers, i already used Advair, Spiriva, and Albuterol in my nebulizer, they just didn’t do much. It was hell for me due to the severe difficulty breathing. April 2016 my sister in-law told us about Rich Herbs Foundation where she ordered herbs that effectively treated her arthritis. We ordered the COPD herbal treatment after reading positive reviews, i am happy to report this COPD herbal treatment reversed my lungs condition. My quality of life has greatly improved and every one of my symptoms including difficulty breathing and wheezing have gone. Their official web page is ww w. richherbsfoundation. c om. I will be 52 soon and have never been healthier
