Like the author, I have had horrendous asthma since I was born (I'm now 30). I've been on ALL the asthma meds (inhalers, pills, steroids, myrax, etc.). A HUGE animal lover, I got a dog two years ago and my asthma got even worse (like it could get any worse). I was taking my rescue inhaler 6-10 times a day in addition to my steroids! I told myself I had to do something, so I bought a bunch of books, including this one. Took the test in this book, found out my asthma was moderate to severe (I figured that). I started taking fish oil, vit c, e, a multiple, calcium, magnesium, selenium and quercitin, and a b-complex like he recommends, and SLOWLY (over 4-5 months) weaned myself off of my meds (I was extrememly addicted, and let me tell ya, it was HARD!). It's been over 6 months now that I haven't needed ANY meds, not even in the morning, haven't even had a shortness of breathe, and to top it off, my doggie sleeps in my bed right next to me now, and she doesn't give me the slightest bit of wheezing (for years my pulmonologists/doctors insisted that I give up my pets). this author has changed my life forever for the better. thank you, oh, and my doggie thanks you too!
