respiratory problems

Posted by

With no known past lung problems, I've had a respiratory virus now for six weeks. My lungs continue to remain inflammed and they've put me on three inhalers a day and prednisone just to breath. I have been practicing alternative medicine for the past five years and try to do very little traditionally. I am supporting my system with a variety of herbs/supplements given to me by my alternative doctor even both my D.O. and allergist (both alternative) are getting perplexed. My CDSA came back with severe leaky gut. Could this be affecting my lungs? Any suggestions to reduce the inflmamation? I'm on a strict non-mucous forming diet and drinking tons of water. Would colonics help as an emergency measure? I feel out of answers and am almost out of a job. Knowing I have to be on these traditional medicines just to breathe is driving me nuts and I'm scared. I really respect your opinion. Thanks.

Hi, JulieU.

This is not a virus any more but a hypersensitivity.

Please describe EXACTLY how you are doing your SR, whole foods diet and exercise (that you have been doing for the past 5 years). If you are doing the wellness stool, this should not be happening to you.

Perhaps I misunderstood. If you have only been doing alternative "treatment" and have not done wellness, this IS the kind of thing we can expect.

Dear Walt,
I'm not sure what you mean by SR. I am rotating my foods every four days and have totally eliminated all sugars, glutens, red meats and am incorporating alot of fresh organic vegetables into my diet (2/3 of my plate) and am only drinking filtered water. I haven't been doing much exercise but am starting to work out at my doctor's herbal/sweat spa. What I do notice is that I am constipated and feel like there might be a blockage. My doctor suggested high enemas or colonics. I'm taking supplements (vit. C, mag/pot/cal, flax and fish oil, olive oil, lemon juice in H20 and some herbs). Would I be hypersensitive to something in my gut or airborne? Should I do enemas or colonics? How do I stop this sensitivity? Vit. C brings some relief. The "treatment" is vitamin IV's to boost my immune system, herbs, and herbal spa. Your suggestions would be really appreciated. Thanks, Julie

Hi, Julie.

ALWAYS go to the glossary for any unfamiliar terms. On THIS subject, you can also go to the homepage, search engine and archives for discussions in depth on this
subject.

By the way, the additional information in this note tells me that the basis of your hypersensitivity is LGS (also caused by stress-effect via bracing---best addressed, in the long run, by SR).

Please let us know how we could have made it easier for you to find this information.

Walt

Thanks Walt. Just after I read your message, I did go to your book and realized you were talking about skilled relaxation. I'm starting to do that and have been, just not consistently. I will take your advice in the chapter. I just wondered if you had any advice immediately as I'm in a critical situation with inhalers and prednisone and need to get back to work. I didn't know asthma could onset so fast just due to LGS. It sounds like that is my situation now. It just came on one evening and I was in the emergency room. Any other advice for my gut? Thanks.

Hi Walt:
Just finished reading some research journals on the association of the Vagal nerve to the mast cells lining the small intestines (research done in Norway). They found that when an allergen triggered a mast cell, the vagal afferent was activated. Also have read that esophagial irritations (lower 2/3 of esohagus) create strong Vagal input that can trigger bronchoconstriction via a shared Vagal response.
Just thought this might make some sense. I suspect this is the problem in my son as well as his cranial issues.

Thanks, Pam.

It does make sense.

From MY perspective, the rapid coalescence of global information in this area could not be happening without global networking made possible by the computer. At the rate it is happening, I am beginning to believe that this paradigm shift may actually happen faster than I had thought just a few months ago.

This is just another proof that what I have been saying about the cause of hypersensitivities coming from the lining of the GI tract leaking is as factual as I have known it to be.
