Dr. Bernard Thébaud said his research team at the U of A found that stem cells and their byproducts can help heal lungs of people with severe asthma and other lung disease.
When researchers gave the stem cell byproduct juice to mice through their noses, the airways became less inflamed.
Potentially, the stem-cell juice can be put into “super” inhalers, reducing asthma patient’s reliance on drugs.
The two-and-a-half years of research is published in the American Journal of Respiratory Cell and Molecular Biology with funding from Alberta Innovates Health Solutions.
At the age of 30, I was diagnosed with severe Asthma. In 1995 I came close to dying from an asthma attack when a near fatal asthma attack put me into full respiratory and cardiac arrest!
A neighbor took the above picture while paramedics were performing CPR on me as I lay on our front porch.
After this close call, I decided I had to try and reclaim my life and fight this terrible disease. Even despite the false claims of medical professionals that asthma is incurable. My story is proof that extremely severe asthma can be cured.

Only way you will eradicate asthma is by eradicating the biggest polluter which causes it, the Oil refineries, Chemical companies which are located a lot in the UK near big towns.
Where I live there is an increase each year of asthma related cases. Not a decrease.
While the article looks promising a lot more is needed to be done before Asthma can be a thing of the past.
