Amber Necklace for Asthma
If you have ever had asthma you will know the feeling is horrible. It’s a feeling of restriction in your chest and a lack of air getting to your lungs. Despite millions of dollars being spent on research the main method of prevention is as always a chemical from a drug company. In most cases you are given a puffer and a steroid is released into the airways. This steroid opens up the lungs and allows you to breath again. Some doctors prescribe the use of this daily or even twice a day. But the use of steroids in young people is not a long-term solution. It simply treats the symptoms not the problem. The human body is also incredibly adaptive and will often simply reject the drug. Then they will need to prescribe higher doses to have any effect. You start to get into a vicious cycle.
Natural Alternatives for Asthma Control
Baltic amber has long been used in ancient Europe for it’s medicinal properties. But it’s only recently that people have started talking about its use in helping asthma sufferers. For those that have asthma they will know the feeling of restricted airways and the wheezing you get in the throat and chest. Baltic Amber worn around the neck of the child or adult has a calming effect and this can aid the flow of oxygen through the lungs.
