Asthma, coughing and breathing

Recommended Posts

Around a third of problems in the human body are a direct cause of inflammation.

We breathe in polluted air,we eat polluted foods,consume alcohol and take medicines which all have a long term counter productive effect.

My Mrs brews up her polly juice potion.Its tumeric root,ginger root in water and slowly simmered until its a dark yellow(like your piss when you come down out the tree dehydrated)

Add manuka honey to sweeten it and thats it.

Take a mug full twice a day.

It takes a week or so to feel the full effects but its better than any medication ive had for my tendonitis elbows,sore knees,coughs and colds.

Hope your altight blairy

I’m not as fit as I used to be, in the last 5 years I’ve bought machinery to help my work, E bikes to help me cycle and now a mewp to save the climbing.  My body isn’t getting the abuse it used to but maybe it’s time I focused on cardio.


had my first drink last night in a month, some bubbles with my wife watching telly.  Never coughed from 6pm - 3pm today!  Even then it was just a litter splutter as I’d been out burning the Christmas wrapping😀

  I reckon the booze must of relaxed me a bit.

  Merry Christmas everyone.

Happy new year!  Turns out I have asthma and the lung capacity of a 65 year old, I’m 43!

I was given a blue inhaler on the 27th, the first day I needed it 10 times, and it was the first night I’d slept right through in my bed for months.  Second day used it 6 times and then the 3rd once I think and then didn’t need it again.

  Luckily I improved after taking an inhaler on a test and managed to squeeze 300ml more air into my lungs when I visited the respitory nurse on Friday.

  I now have a brown steroid inhaler morning and night and the blue if needed.

  Simply having a diagnosis is such a relief and I’m back on my pills for my back as I thought they were what was making my breathing worse but apparently not.

  I’m easily getting 8-10 hours sleep now right through.  

  So it’s time to brush off the walking boots and get the air into my lungs.  

  I’ve to keep a diary now and triggers is 1 of the things, if fuel, exhausts and this work in general are to blame then that will change too.

  Well worth a trip to the doctors guys if any of you have similar.
