I am getting ready to go see my asthma doc. I usually hate this appointment because I am always doing worse than the last time. But the new medication he put me on is doing a great job and I am using my inhalers way less than ever, even now when it is the start of allergy season! I can't wait to show off!

Maybe you can celebrate and do a happy dance for the doctor, and not have to use the inhaler! great news that you have been doing so well!

That's great news LP

I went to Dr. Levine as a child for my asthma. The Homeopath that created Natura Products. Haven't used an inhaler for over 15 yrs now.
Doubt he's still alive today, he looked about 100 when I was 13
He was such a sweet man and I only used his powders and drops till I turned 17.
I just have my nebulizer now for when I get wheezy or battle to breath

When I was young ( a very long time ago) the only thing my mother could get to help with my asthma was a green powder, she would put some on a saucer and lite it with a match. There would be some smoke coming out of it and I would breathe this in. It did help.

This is really great news. Asthma used to make me crazy. My Dr. had me try med after med until we found what worked for me. Now I take a preventative inhaler each morning and very rarely need my emergency inhaler.

Dr. Levine all but cured my asthma. It's great to be able to breath again without feeling restricted. I'm all for alternative remedies.

Dealing with a Staples order I placed on Friday and accidentally gave them the wrong expiry date for the CC. Good grief, what a lot of fuss and bother for a typo. I'm also trying to order some XpressPost envelopes from the post office. It looks like I may have to phone for that, even though I have ordered them online before.

In the early 1920's my father had an inhaler that worked for his asthma. In later years, while attending a high school assembly on drugs and drugs were exhibited, he realized his childhood inhaler had a marjiuana derivitive
