For colds and flu, the normal symptoms are all the bodies way of asking for water. A sore throat is just a plea for water (which the pharma industry uses by providing people with candy-like things which mask the symptom by locally anesticizing the throat). Those sights say allergies are also hydration related, and actually come before full-blown asthma. It's interesting to me that some people would pin "malarkey" on an entire body of work by many people without fully experimenting to see if it is true or false. And where do users find this thread, it's not coming up on New Topics. Thanks.

i had chronic asthma growing up. in and out of hospital a lot. i used to panic a bit which only made me worse.
i tried tablets, inhalers, fresh air, water.
nothing worked for me. until i turned 14...
and guess what cured me of my asthma?
like a lot of kids my age i tried the wicked weed (tobacco)
and within months my asthma was gone. being a smoker you cough up phlegm and as this was a big reason for my asthma, coughing it up cleared my chest and therfore cleared my breathing
when you have a smoke you calm down which also helped me. no more panicky breathing
obviously i dont recommend anyone to start smoking to cure their asthma, but it definitely worked for me
