Childhood asthma is, unfortunately, on the rise. If you or someone you know has a child with this condition, here are some suggestions to help you deal with it naturally:
First, try the xylitol nasal wash called Xlear. Rinse nasal passages with the product 3 or 4 times a day and continue to do so every day for two or three months. This alone can work wonders.
Second, have the child’s vitamin D levels checked and if they are low, get them up as quickly as possible by taking higher dosages for a week or two and then cut back to a maintenance level. Dosages for children vary by weight and age:
- 1,000 IU per day for healthy children under age 2
- 2,000 IU per day for those over age 2
- 3,000 IU per day for children weighing 80 to 130 lbs
I’ve seen severe chronic cases of asthma that have responded very quickly to these two methods.
