From the EarthClinic link in my OP, some of the comments mentioned to make sure you get the organic version and not some supermarket cheap crap that's been filtered or processed.

An earlier poster even mentioned stuff that's so organic it has apple peel floating in the bottle, that sounds yummy but i imagine hard to get hold of. I posted a link to the organic shop where it shows local branches at the bottom of the page; is there one near you?

N.B. I want to add that i think asthma is 20% psychosomatic, so taking ACV probably helps me believe that i'm breathing easier. I say this because i remember on a few occasions going out then with blind panic, realising i've forgotten my blue inhaler; within seconds the wheezing would start, so it's a state of mind sometimes, and taking ACV is giving me some mental cloak, but i think it really is helping


We need more people to try ACV to know it's full effects, so please report back, thanks

Update

I had to take a blast of my blue inhaler last night


I had a very light wheeze and minor tightness of the chest, enough to make me aware it was there so i had trouble getting to sleep. I tried to resist the inhaler, but i was tired and wanted to get some zzz's.

Probably also the fact of the heat at night, as we are having our customary 3-4 days of sunshine for the year this week


Also, i'm going to go back to taking just ONE cap-ful with honey, as i read one comment on EarthClinic that says the vinegar can start asthma as it's an irritant and the honey is there to calm it down. So i'll see what just one dose does, three times a day.

Smoking and asthma is bad, I don't have asthma but smoking still kills my lungs. I don't think any amount of apple vinegar will cure smokers symptoms. However my girl is asthmatic, I was wondering if you asked them if they shipped out, and if so would they ship international? (i know you probably never asked, but just throwing it out there)

Other great natural treatments include:
Inula Graveleons
Helichrysum Italicum
Ammi Visagna
(there are many more essential oils that are asthma healers but these are the very best and most potent)

Like the OP, I have episodes of Asthma, usually allergy induced.....and I am a smoker. I have a special respiratory blend that I make for myself at home (which include the plant extracts referenced above). I swear by this. A little rub on the chest and bottoms of the feet do wonders.

Why do asthmatics smoke?


Thanks for the list jackieps1975, but i read a comment somewhere joking that some remedies people mention, can only be found when you scour the bottom of an ocean.

Are the oils you mentioned easily obtainable? Is there a shop/franchise that stocks them all in one place?

Thanks in advance.

I'm guessing that people who say that haven't done their homework! Yes, they are readily available! I always stock them but then again I stock everything (because that's what I do!
)!

Some of the more common EO's used to combat asthma are Eucalyptus, Cypress, Clary Sage & Myrrh. Again, the ones I initially listed are the ones I personally find to be most effective.


edit to add: I wanted to mention that another effective way of using the oils for asthma (& other respiratory issues) is by diffusing.

A few weeks back i was getting desperate for a cure to a wart I had on the back of my foot. It was utterly repulsive and I had tried EVERYTHING! I wasn't afraid of taking a scalpel blade to my foot and cutting it off but I was getting sick of it growing back after about 3 or 4 times of having it frozen off too. Acid didn't work either and it goes without saying that other expensive treatments such as "Wartner" were a waste of time and money.

Anyway, through desperation I had heard that ACV was good for skin conditions so I taped a thin piece of cotton to it after dipping in ACV and left it over night. The next day the wart had turned black. I did this every night for 1 week. By the end of thay week the wart had dropped off and died leaving a red patch of skin (which is now fine).

I was so impresed I looked around for other uses and found that there seems to be an endless list of benefits, not just for warts or asthma, which include diarrhoea and arthritis. It really is a miracle cure-all substance, but it takes some persuasion to get other people on it!

Update:

I've been trying this every day since the 1st of July.

1- swig of apple cider vinegar - daily
1- 100 mg tablet Vitamin B-6 - daily
1- CVS Super Omega-3 Tab - daily

The apple cider vinegar seems to impair my breathing at least short term. It feels like it breaks up the mucus in my windpipe temporary and constricts my breathing.

B-6 - no noticeable results yet
omega 3 - no noticeable results yet

I am going to keep trying and will post any results.

I am positive Esecallum's account is hacked.

He would never advise someone use FDA recommended therapies or treatments.

Just like I would never advise that as well. FDA and Big Pharma are your enemies and enemies to good health in general.

Never trust the FDA. Just as Herbert Lay, M.D. and former FDA commissioner said;

"The thing that bugs me is that people think the FDA is protecting them. It isn't."

I'm in no way shape or form condoning it's illegal use..but pot has helped my asthma. It was out of control when i lived in NY when i was younger..but it improved DRASTICALLY when i moved to NC and i mean drastically. I went from being hospitalized once a month for a whole week to seeing my respiratory therapist once every 4 months or so, only during times when natural air borne pollutants was high. I still can't do stuff like cut the grass or go chillin in it without wheezing but it's gotten better.

But it's become alot more manageable since i've started smoking chronic..the only time i have use my inhaler is when the seasons change from spring to summer and fall to winter..that's it.

I had it sense i was a young'un..i remember telling my classmates and teachers i had asthma and they would always ask, "What is that?"

I was diagnosed with asthma when I was about 1 or 2 years old.

I used to 'smoke' ALOT when I was a teenager and thinking back I hardly ever had an attack or wheezed. I think an inhaler would last me 12 months at a time, and I played football among other sports.

I don't 'smoke' at all now and haven't for years. On average I go through one inhaler a month, but my asthma is 90% allergy related, but I don't really have a choice about it at the moment.

I do know the really really good quality stuff makes your lungs feel like they are 10 times the normal size though.

Are you on some kind of commission based placebo BS campaign for your pharm bosses?

If i want to rub dock leaves on my skin to alleviate a rash from nettles, then that's my choice. I won't subscribe to your prescribed crap in a bottle that's been injected into a rabbits eyeball.

Please let us know how you get on with the precious piggy flu vaccine this winter, that will bypass any FDA 'trials'

The stuff killed my lungs, but it wasn't Mary, it was the crappy baccy. I wish i'd used it in cakes instead.

I was a chronic Asthmatic for all my life until i discovered Amphetamine. Ive not had to use my inhaler ever since. Though i wouldn't recommend this for everyone for obvious reasons.

I've had asthma since I was nine. I had to take two puffs of the brown inhaler every morning and night and absolutely had to keep the blue inhaler with me just in case I had an attack. Then five years ago I decided to try and get by without them. It might be childish but I was watching "Lost" and thought to myself what I would do if I was washed up on some island. I came to the conclusion that I couldn't rely on my inhaler so I decided to give it up. At first I wheezed like an old man with a 60 a day ciggy habit but it wasn't long before I found myself quickly recovering from an attack just by staying calm and taking deep breaths. It's now been years since I had a serious attack. I still suffer with my chest when I have a cold or flu but other than that I really have put it behind me.
I think asthma is partly in the mind, perhaps something like a panic attack! When you feel that tightening and tickle in your throat and hear the wheeze you instantly reach for the inhaler. Take it from me, just try and see if you can recover without it! I f you're anything like me you;ll find that in most instances you can. . .

UPDATE



I'm still taking a capful of apple cider vinegar thrice a day, but i wanted to give a rather depressing update.

I went for a check-up with the asthma nurse yesterday and I had to do a peak-flow test, where you blow into a tube. Last time i went, my rating was about 600 but when i had it done this time it was a shocking 500


Use this site to find your optimum levels.

I've put a bid on a peak flow tube on eBay so i can monitor my progress, as they are cheap enough (£5-10). I was annoyed (and worried) to find my 500 peak flow is the same as a 75 year old.


Anyway, i told the nurse i was taking ACV and she seemed pleased and was aware of it but then i told her i had stopped taking the brown inhalers, at which point she was very displeased. She explained that you shouldn't stop taking becotide suddenly and recommended i should take it twice a day, which i will now do.

However, I'm still smoking horrible rollie's and today i ordered some free stuff from the NHS to help you give up smoking. Fill in your details here and you'll get all the info through the post. I will also try one of their clinics to get some patches and you can find your nearest one on this page.

In summary, i need to stop smoking, start jogging and continue to take ACV
It's all baby steps however, so my plan is to stop smoking and then start jogging once my lungs clear. I just need to ride out that 3-day window of craving! I will continue to take ACV and have almost finished my first bottle

Make sure it's the organic type and i also bought some liquid honey (organic). I put a cap-ful of the vinegar with a soupçon of honey and added some warm water and a pinch of sugar into a small glass and necked it in one go; i immediately felt it surge my body and felt nice and warm. That was two days ago and my asthma is much, much better. I've only had one blast of the blue inhaler since, but it's only been a few days.


By the way! It's disgusting. lol What ratio is it supposed to be?

Hello,

I was wondering how you were getting along with this Apple Cider Vinegar routine?

I am just about to purchase some and take your recommended dosage.

When I am running, I never need an inhaler. However, I recently upped my training schedule and so I started taking an inhaler. This actually CAUSED me to feel wheezy.

I am not sure if it was the inhaler that caused my asthma to come back during that week or whether my training programme became more strenuous ...

Now, I am doing the same training schedule, if not tougher, without the inhaler and am fine.

Personally, I think the inhaler (brown) actually made my asthma come back!

Thanks
