Akhigbe - 9/6/2015 - "DE? Diatomaceous Earth is a white chalky rock sediment built up over eons and eons by fossilized skeletal remains of diatoms. These fossilized rock formation are called diatomite. Diatoms are one of the most common types of phytoplankton, a singled celled algae. The diatoms' cells are encased within a unique cell wall made of silica, in the form of silicon dioxide. These rock sediments are crushed and milled into a flour like consistency and hence it is also called Fossil Shell Flour.
Silica is a major mineral vital to all life forms - animals, plants and humans. Dr. Adolf Butenandt, 1939 Nobel Price winner, proved that 'life cannot exist without silica'. Dr. Barbara Hendel states that 'Silica is the most important trace element in human health'. Perma-Guard's Fresh Water Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth contains 89 - 95% amorphous silica and 14+ essential trace minerals.
It is important to know that amorphous silica is different from crystalline silica. Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth amorphous silica is silicon dioxide in it's natural occurring state. A major mineral that co-exists with essential trace minerals such as: calcium, copper, iron, potassium, sodium, titanium, boron, manganese, copper and zirconium. These are minerals every mammals on the planet needs to live. It becomes crystalline when it is exposed to extreme heat through volcanic activity or commercial manufacturing means. Crystalline silica is used in filtration systems such as those of swimming pools, aquariums, etc...This form is extremely dangerous when inhaled or ingested and not biodegradable.
Food Grade DE is used as: Animal Feed Additive, Anti-Caking Agent, Inert Carrier, Grain Storage Protectant, Trace Mineral Supplements for both animals and humans and food grade insecticide. Churned into soil, it provides the earth with much needed minerals and porosity improving fertility and soil tilth.
In her book, Going Green Using Diatomaceous Earth How-to Tips, Tui Rose, a concerned mother and registered nurse, does an excellent job in providing fact based data and resources for DE. It is an easy guide book for using a safer alternative, natural mineral, food grade insecticide with over 101 uses."  (Alert.  DE can also contain contaminants.)

Coffee - 1 cup freshly brewed coffee AM and late afternoon relax tightened bronchial muscles, allowing tubes and passages to open wider for more air to reach lungs. Caffeine is as effective a theophylline an asthma drug per University of Manitoba, Canadian research. Those 2 cups of coffee may help mood, endurance and colds.

Copper - - "Dr. Steve Pieczenik's case is a perfect example. Several years ago he was diagnosed with mature-onset asthma, for which he was prescribed steroids and an inhaler. He refused to take these medications because he knew that they would cause their own adverse effects. Instead, he made an appointment with Dr. John Neustadt, who ordered a comprehensive biochemical screen that tested more than 450 variables of biochemical function. Biochemical testing revealed the underlying cause for Dr. Pieczenik’s asthma. His symptoms resulted from an inability to produce the hormone epinephrine, which is a bronchodilator, because he became deficient in copper, which is required to convert the amino acid tyrosine to epinephrine. Within 2 weeks of starting the therapy to realign his copper, all of his breathing difficulties stopped and he has had no breathing problem since then."

Silicon trace mineral - - "The silicon in tissues is usually bonded to glycoproteins such as cartilage, whereas the silicon in blood is almost entirely found as either free orthosilicic acid or linked to small compounds.  The biological requirement for silicon was 1st demonstrated by Edith Carlisle and Klaus Schwarz1,2 in experiments with rats and chickens that were fed silicon-deficient diets.
These experiments demonstrated that nutritional silicon deficiency causes skeletal deformities such as abnormal skull and long bone structure, as well as poorly-formed joints with decreased cartilage content. Detailed biochemical analysis revealed that silicon is an essential nutrient for the structural integrity and development of connective tissue.3,4 Silicon's most popular use is as a nutritional supplement to strengthen not only the bones and connective tissues, but also hair, nails and skin...In addition to connective tissue and bone health, several other promising health benefits of silicon, such as protection against aluminum toxicity and protection of arterial tissue have been reported.  (Regarding asthma) "Silicon restores mucosa in the respiratory tract. (Only consume organic silica and in minimal dosage, as is a TRACE mineral.)

Vitamin D - Vitamin D helps you breathe easier (But rather than artifical D3, a rat poison, get your daily dose of D3 from the outdoor sunshine.)

How you think and feel may affect your biology.  The amygdala connects both the hypothalamus and the brain stem.  The amygdala registers threats/stress and signals adrenal glands to flood the body with stress hormones (which also suppress the immune system).  The more demanding the cognitive task, the greater the amygdala and cingulate cortex activation.  Physical problems such as cardiac changes and asthma may be triggered/influenced by (negative emotions and) thought. 3/17/2006

Budesonide - Bartlett, Dr. Richard @
Inhaled budesonide is a (prescription) generic drug that is extremely safe and has been around for over 20 years.
It is FDA-approved for asthma and lung inflammation.
It is not FDA-approved for COVID, but no drug has been approved yet.

Dr. Richard Bartlett’s (successful) full protocol for COVID includes not only inhaled budesonide using a nebulizer (inhaler), but also zinc to help fight the virus and an antibiotic such as clarithromycin for secondary bacterial infections such as pneumonia.
He favors vitamin D3 (from sunshine) and vitamin C (from citrus fruit).
Dr. Bartlett says budensonide is available as an OTC (over the counter) nose spray for asthma.  (This might be good to have in one’s locked medicine cabinet.) 8/2020 interview

Over the counter aspirin in excess can precipitate an asthmatic reaction, more readily than natural herbs (such as white willow or boswella). Vol 8 # 8 The Doctor's Prescription for Healthy Living

Horrobin, Peter - ministry testimony - "When Jim had forgiven his father, we asked Jesus to heal his broken heart. It was then possible for his physical body to be healed also. I will never forget hearing Jim cry out, 'I can breathe! I can breathe!' Jesus had healed him on the inside, he was delivered from a spirit of infirmity and his asthma was gone forever. He had no more symptoms, no more medication and was never again restricted by his condition. When the trauma on the inside was healed, his body could be made whole." - per Sid Roth 3/2011 newsletter
