Your body is truly miraculous in what it can do if you take away the cause of its problems! This case history is of a man who was almost 70, and who had been suffering with asthma since he was 20, and taking medication for it daily since then. His condition was getting worse and worse in that he kept getting chest infections that needed yet more drug intervention; and when I saw him he had even had to give up his daily walk for fear of getting yet more chest infections. It has taken only three months for him to get well, and he is now almost drug free, and back walking his usual 2 miles daily!
Paul and Asthma
I very recently saw Paul (age 69) who had had asthma since he was age 20, and has been on inhalers since then. For the last 10 years he had had a series of chest infections which always started in the wind-pipe trachea. When it was bad it took weeks to clear with antibiotics and steroids, and sometimes the physical intervention of a bronchoscopy too. But it always came back again, with the same cycle of drugs needed to temporarily clear it. He had never been a smoker. He used to walk in the evening, but was now afraid to go out into the cold. He was on 8 puffs a day of the inhaler ventolin, and another inhaler as well. After the allergy test Paul gave up all dairy foods and white bread (these are incidentally the most common causes of asthma, and he was having both daily). read more →
Jacob Age 8 Months
If you are unable to breast-feed, it is so important to find a milk formula that suits your baby – and don’t give up until you do!
Jacob was suffering from almost constant vomiting and diarrhoea, and every nappy change his clothes had to be changed as well. He often seemed to get hives, particularly after certain meals, and subsequently was awake and crying all night. He would then be like a demon the next day! He woke on and off through the night even on the better nights. His nose was either very runny or completely blocked, and he couldn’t breathe through it. He had always had reflux, and so Jacob’s mother had been asked by his doctor to add Gaviscon to all his bottles (a medicine used to relieve heartburn). He had already had 3 antibiotics for ear infections.
Anna Skrine, naturopath and food intolerance tester, recently conducted some lengthy research into food intolerance in young people and we look forward to seeing the full results of that work. In the meantime here’s one case study that came out of it. As is often the case it shows just how beneficial it can be to remove the most basic allergens from the diet of someone suffering with life destroying digestive issues.
OLIVIA* Age 16
Olivia was age 16, but in a dire state when she came to Only Natural, and so we fitted her in as part of our Research Project.
Every time Olivia ate she suffered with reflux; she felt bloated all the time, and was not hungry, and often had cramps and pain in her tummy area. She also suffered with constipation, which sometimes caused bleeding, though a bowel scope had showed her large intestine as being all clear. Her periods were so difficult that for the last 4 years she has had to miss 4 or 5 days of school each month.
