Julia’s Inn: Natural supplements ease respiratory problems
By Julia Whipkey-Michniewicz, N.D.
Teacher of Naturopathic Medicine
I just heard an advertisement for a scary medication called Breo. An FDA news release dated May 10, 2013, stated that the FDA approved Breo Ellipta to treat chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. The advertisement stated that there is no cure for asthma, but if you take Breo, it has been shown to cause osteoporosis, bone breaks, lymphoma, prostate cancer, kidney problems, and on and on.
Again, the advertisement stated there is no cure for asthma, but in my office, I have had wonderful experiences treating asthma. I recently met a young man by the name of Tyler, who came to see me because of a chronic cough that he had been experiencing for more than a year. The cough now was so constant that his co-workers were getting annoyed, and his wife was now up most of the night unable to sleep. He had been to numerous doctors, and they all told him it was allergies, and to take an over-the-counter drug. This did not help, and he gave up on both doctors and over-the-counter medication.
I took his urine and saliva, examined him through fingernail and tongue analysis, and did applied kinesiology. Tyler tested strong on two herbal remidies, a homeopathic nasal spray, and an essential oil for his chest and feet. I educated him on the foods he was eating that he was allergic to and sent him on his way. Now remember, he was constantly coughing. His wife Tracy called a couple of days later and thanked me, for he has not coughed since taking the supplements, and she has had wonderful nights’ sleep. She did share with me that if he does not take them as directed, the cough does come back, so he can tell they are working.
The herbal supplements I use in my office are powerful. I have been blessed to work under and train under a medical doctor in California. His insight to health through nail and tongue analysis is worldwide. Dr. Tsu-Tsair Chi received his medical training in China and earned his Ph.D. in biochemistry from the Waksman Institute of Microbiology at Rutgers State University, N.J., in 1978. He then became a board-certified Naturopathic Physician. Dr. Chi works closely with Dr. Stephen Wright, M.D.; F. Akbarpour, M.D.; K. Kokayi, M.D.; and G. Mitchell. I was also blessed to be able to shadow Dr. William Hobbins, M.D., for three years. Dr. Hobbins also worked with Dr. Wright.
When I work with Dr. Chi’s supplements for upper respiratory challenges, I specifically target the lungs and cardiovascular function. They protect and repair vascular endothelial cells, reduce C-reactive protein, are a powerful antioxidant, and regulate cholesterol and triglyceride.*
So many people with breathing difficulties like COPD and asthma have experienced amazing relief by taking his herbal products. They have anti-hypoxia effects, thereby increasing the oxygen-carrying capacity of red blood cells.** This helps ease breathing difficulties experienced by patients with lung issues and those who live in higher elevations.
