A natural alternative to asthma medication


As I mentioned last week, Moses’ lungs have been clearing. Yay!

But, Moses still needed extra help with his breathing twice this week (which is waaaay better than 6 times a day or more when it was at its worst). I’m excited to share that we discovered a natural alternative to his Ventolin puffer. We’ve been using RespirActin, which is a natural supplement that helps relieve breathing difficulties.  It contains purified water, rosemary, honey, witch  hazel, fenugreek seed, black seed, ginseng powder, damiana leaves, marshmallow, sage, juniper berries, chamomile flowers, clover, spearmint, cinnamon, thyme and potassium sorbate.respiractin

I’ve known about RespirActin for several years and have used it myself in the past, when I have experienced severe asthmatic symptoms (which, fortunately, isn’t very often — I can only remember two times needing it in the last 10 years). Due to Moses’ sensitivities, we hadn’t felt comfortable giving him this supplement since we didn’t know if he could tolerate all of the ingredients.

I know things have really changed because DH came home from the Natural Health Shop with this supplement (typically DH is the one who is reluctant to try something new). And Moses often doesn’t like the taste of many supplements, but happily, he liked the taste of this one, plus he told us it was more effective than his Ventolin puffer.

We’re sooooooo happy to have a natural alternative to use at home. We’ll get one for his dayhome as well.  I’ll have to find out if his school would be open to using it rather than his Ventolin puffer (I kind of doubt they will be since they only administer prescription medication, but I’ll find out…)

During his reflexology appointment this week, Kim detected some “fullness” in his lung points as well as his adrenal gland on his left foot, so I think he’s still clearing things through his lungs.

  1. Incredible. That’s so wonderful. We’ve tried so so many supplements with such few results that I often find myself brushing them off. This is a reminder to keep trying. Thank you so much for your posts and I hope to hear more good news about Moses’s healing!

  2. Hi Sherry: So glad that you found this post a helpful reminder to keep trying… 🙂

  3. Isn’t it great to find an natural alternative medicine?! So happy to hear it even works BETTER than the Ventolin puffer. Funny how you also mention, things must be shifting when your DH came home with it all by himself. Hah! I can soooo relate. 🙂

  4. Hi Hanna: Always great to hear from you! Glad to hear that you can relate re: our husbands! When one of us shifts / heals, we all shift as a family. 🙂
