I had asthma for 33 years when I discovered research about
four years ago that stated there are different causes of asthma, and one cause is bacteria. Asthma can be caused by mycoplasma and chlamydia pneumoniae - both airborne bacteria you can get when you catch a viral infection like a cold, flu, bronchitis or pneumonia.
I went to a doctor who had been studying this for over fifteen years and he treated me with antibiotics - three days in a row, followed by a dose taken once a week for a total of twelve weeks. My asthma has been gone ever since, and since that time, my son's exercise induced asthma has been cured this way, and I know several people who have had their asthma treated this way. Some doctors are treating their patients, but others don't seem to know about
this until their patients mention it and they look at the research.
Not everyone's asthma is caused by bacteria - it's a small subset of maybe 30 - 50%, but it's worth looking into. Bacteria can also cause asthma to get worse, so some people have been treated and find great improvement. Also, I was on antibiotics all the time - I got sick a LOT, but it wasn't enough to knock out the bacteria that was causing the asthma. You have to be on it once a week for twelve weeks at the right dose, using the right antibiotic.
There is a yahoo group I started so people can participate in that as well as the discussions here. I've posted many studies and a couple of articles and informative documents there in the Files and Links sections. Go here to join:I had to delete your website address because it violates our forum rule. I suggest you read over the rules.
The studies are legitimate studies run by doctors and the links are to peer reviewed medical journals.
It won't work for everyone, like I said, but it will probably be the case for some of you.
Happy health to all...
