Asthma and Bronchitis: Help Yourself

I just wanted to update you on my success with Calmag-C.  As you may recall, I have been taking Calmag-C for over 2 months now.  At that time, I had bronchitis that wouldn’t go away, despite getting conventional treatment, which turned into an asthmatic event.   After stabilizing, I have found that taking Calmag-C along with vitamin supplements and eliminating sugar and white flours eliminated any asthmatic symptoms.  I can tell that when I stopped taking the Calmag-C, symptoms returned.  You can be sure that I won’t be forgetting to include Calmag-C on a twice daily basis again.   I am sure that if it wasn’t for Calmag-C, I would have had to depend on some medications which are harsh on the body.   So, what worked for me in general was reducing inflammation: Calmag-C along with an anti-inflammatory diet, good hydration, and vitamins did the trick!

WHAT CAUSES IT?

 

Asthma is characterized by bronchial spasm, swelling of the mucous membranes of the lung, excessive mucus production and an inability to fully empty the lungs of air. Asthma affects about 3% of the population.

 

Bronchial spasms occur in both extrinsic asthma (an allergic reaction to external substances such as mold, dust, animal hair, pollens or chemicals) and intrinsic asthma (from exercise, infection and emotional upset).

 

The allergic triggers, known as allergens, spark off the release of histamines in your body, which try to eliminate the allergens by stimulating lots of mucus to mop up the allergens and push them out through sneezing, coughing, watery eyes and so on.

 

Histamine is the chemical (neuro-transmitter) your body produces when you’re having an allergic reaction. Although there is always some histamine in your body, a mosquito bite (for example), causes your body to release more histamine in the area of the bite, making your skin red and itchy.

 

One of the side effects of too much histamine is tightening of the bronchial tubes, which go into spasm and leads to wheezing, coughing, shortness of breath which leads to rapid breathing, difficulty exhaling, anxiety and dehydration. Anyone who has ever had  or seen someone with asthma knows the gripping fear that results from being unable to breathe and this worsens the situation because the sufferer is tensing up even more from the fear.

 

MAGNESIUM DEFICIENCIES

 

Magnesium, being a bronchodilator and an antihistamine, naturally reduces the histamine levels in the body creating a calming effect on the muscles of the bronchial tubes and the rest of the body.

 

Many asthma drugs actually deplete the magnesium stores in the body, worsening the problem. They might be necessary to save a life on an immediate basis but the most important thing is to eliminate the underlying cause of the asthma and replace the magnesium deficiencies very often created by the drugs themselves.

 

CALCIUM AND MAGNESIUM PARTNERSHIP

 

It is important to understand that your body needs both calcium and magnesium to make the nervous system function properly and to build a healthy immune system.

 

If you take magnesium without the calcium, your body will just draw calcium from your bones and/or teeth to balance up with the magnesium so your body can use it. If you’re low on calcium, then your body won’t be able to even use the magnesium you’re taking as it needs the calcium too.

 

OTHER DEFICIENCIES

 

Calcium and magnesium are important for asthmatics but there are other nutrients also vitally important. For example, most people know that vitamin D is needed to absorb calcium into the blood stream but you also need the vitamin F (essential fats) so the calcium can be pulled into your tissues.

 

Just as calcium and magnesium need to be in a 2:1 ratio with each other so do vitamins D and F need to be in balance. These two oils are very important as they are anti-inflammatory and they line your bronchial tubes and help them eradicate the histamines.

 

You also need vitamin C and your other vitamins such as B complex and vitamin E. This is the time to make sure you’re getting everything you need as it will help you handle the histamine onslaught and build your immune system.
