Asthma must be treated holistically to have lasting healing.
Phytotherapy offers a good and safe alternative, judging from my clinical experiences and the experiences of so many parents.
The basic things to do include:
- Proper breathing method (refer to book Leaf to Life: Unlock’s nature to true health, page 51)
- Stress management: Are you as parent stressing your kids? Tiger mums and dads?
- Possible food allergies – wheat, sugar, chocolate, dairy, peanuts, cooling teas such as oolong, green tea, eggs etc.
One of the finest remedies is hart tongue elixir, a St Hildegard’s remedy to cleanse the liver and strengthen the lungs.

Actually it is not ‘may’. It is true. The more your kids (also adults) are exposed to antibiotics and other drugs (don’t forget antibiotics in food too like farmed fish and meat)., the higher risk of antibiotic resistance, infection, poor immunity and allergy related disorders such as eczema, rhinitis, sinusitis, autoimmunity etc.
I have seen this over and over again in my decade old clinical practice.
Infectious diseases are set to increase in the coming years due to climate change and use of chemicals in our body and the environment (think of the insecticides and pesticides).
There is increasing evidence of the link between climatic factors and the emergence and re-emergence of infectious diseases, including dengue, malaria, tuberculosis (see it is coming back), and other viral diseases. The transmission of diseases has also worsened with frequent travel, human migration, malnutrition, and poor diets in those who lead a fast-paced and stressful lifestyle.
Is there hope? Yes if you are open to incorporating herbs into your lifestyle. You don’t have to keep falling sick, tired all the time, digestive upset, multiple allergies etc.
I will be giving a talk on children’s health on Sept 18. Join us if you can.
Please share this note to your friends who are parents.
