Many people suffer with asthma and, while it’s important for asthma sufferers to work closely with their doctor to control their symptoms, there are also natural remedies and common sense daily precautions that can help asthma sufferers control and minimize symptoms.
Whether you have just found out you have asthma or are a long time sufferer, there are steps you can take to start a natural remedy lifestyle that may help to reduce and control your asthma. One thing that has helped many sufferers is using lemon for asthma relief and control.
Lemon juice is found by many sufferers to have tremendous benefits including, in some cases, stopping, reducing or controlling asthma attacks. Lemon juice can also fortify your internal organs and provide a range of health benefits. Knowing how to combine it with other nutrients will give this citrus fruit extra power.
Step one is to use lemon juice every morning. You may have heard that lemon juice is acid and is bad for you if you have arthritis. It’s true that lemon juice can cut into and break up oil. However, when it enters the body as an acid, it ends up as alkaline residue after your cells use it up.
If you suffer from arthritis as well as asthma you should consult your doctor (and preferably a qualified nutritional therapist) about incorporating lemons safely into your diet.
In fact, because this remedy involves fasting, you should ALWAYS check with a health professional to ensure you are fit to undertake it. If you are already seeing a qualified naturopath or nutritionist they can certainly give you further advice about this treatment, and advise you how to adapt it, if fasting won’t work for you.
Step one for using lemon for asthma relief
Here’s what you don't want to hear. First, do a two day fast using only water and lemon juice. Prepare your lemon drink by squeezing the juice of one organic lemon into eight ounces of distilled water. Warm the distilled water slightly to give this drink extra energy and to reduce the work your body has to do to digest it.
Increase the power of your lemon drink
After your two day fast, continue drinking this lemon drink in the morning at least half an hour before you have breakfast. Now when you prepare this lemon drink add two teaspoons of ionic manganese.
Manganese is known as the love mineral. If you have a lot of anger, hate, stress, depression or anxiety this can aggravate your asthma. Manganese will help to lessen these emotions.
After you drink this lemon juice, rinse out your mouth with distilled water so that the lemon juice acid will not affect the enamel on your teeth.
Super charge your lemon drink
Now, here is one more thing. Add one two tablespoons of liquid chlorophyll to your lemon-manganese drink. Now you have a drink that will help to detoxify your colon little by little. Toxins that get into your blood from your colon weaken the tissues in your lungs and bronchial tract, so it’s helpful to keep your blood clean.
There it is. This is just a start. Go out and get some organic lemons, do the fast, add some manganese, then some chlorophyll and see your asthma attacks lessen day by day.
