It’s GAME OVER.
I wanted to wait a little bit of time before I openly discuss this but I feel like my body has won and here I can finally open up about what has happened to me.
So, I have had asthma since I was 8 years old. When I first had the first attacks were horrible. I remember laying in bed for hours, at night time, watching the clock go by and I was only little and definitely not having a good sleep pattern. I had to quit swimming and dancing activities because they used to set my lungs on fire and I was left with no breath.
I felt like I couldn’t run anymore. I felt that I was excluded from enjoying life like all the other kids, constantly worrying if I had my puffer with me.
I started to gain weight, and be more and more addicted to my puffer.
Then, things went bad. I started smoking, 10-20 cigarettes a day since the age of 14-15 years old and I used to take my puffer 3 or four times a day or sometimes after every cigarette.
Until my body stopped responding to the inhaler. no matter how many puffs, it just wouldn’t work anymore. I was anxious because I couldn’t see my life without that tool and I thought there was no other option than change inhaler and use the one with Cortisone. I know, very bad my dear.
And so I started the part of my life that I like to call “Dark Ages” of my body, where my health was very bad, my dietary choices were extremely poor and I was the polar opposite of what I would now define a healthy person.
In the past, I did try few times to do some Homeopathic cures for it, but it didn’t work. Becoming more conscious of my body made me realise that Asthma is not only about Lungs: it’s about your guts, mind and heart. I felt that these three organs were connected when I had episodes of asthma. For example, asthma was triggered by food that used to provoke my intestinal tract with overfermentation such as sugars and flours (terrible mix); or I had asthma when I was in the situation where I wasn’t happy, felt judged or anxious my lungs would instantly close. When it comes to the heart, my kind of asthma it’s not the type that it’s triggered by pollen or dust. My asthma was deep. Was embedded in my youth memories and it was strongly linked to the way I genuinely felt, from the bottom of my heart. So in cases where I had to sit down and pretend I was feeling ok, my second reaction to that was take my puffer out and breathe the cold spray, to “open” to this feeling of unease.
It’s so simple, my body was just telling me with the most lovable tone
“Maddy, why do you keep doing this? You know it’s not ok, you know it’s not good for you. Stop. Slow down. Step Away.”
and I never did.
One day, I come across the name of a local Homeopath (in Perth) and I decide to go see him. I had no apparent reason, I wasn’t sick at the time but I thought, why not?
The homoeopathic way of diagnosing is thorough: a lot of time is spent talking and knowing the patient not only from a physical point of view, history of diseases and stuff but also, everything else that happens “behind the curtains” such as family, friends, personal thoughts etc.. sounds like those 5 mins at the GP are a bit rushed uh?
Anyway, he prescribed a remedy that I took every day for a couple of months.
I felt the difference STRAIGHT AWAY. Not only in my lungs, but also in my thoughts processing, my behaviours, my self-care became my first and main priority and I never felt as good in my whole life.
Then, he gave me a stronger potency. I didn’t feel a change from the rise of potency but I just trusted him. It did change something so must have been working.
Well, around 700 words later, I am here to say that has now been one full month that I haven’t touched my inhaler. I don’t even know where it is. I have been running, sprinting, exercising until exhausted, being stressed and under the pump and NOTHING. My lungs aren’t closing anymore. 6 months ago I couldn’t run 500m and I’d need the puffer straight away.
I have to say, I have a remedy that I use as an inhaler substitute but this doesn’t change the fact that I’ve gone from being seriously addicted to the inhaler, to not needing it at all. I’ve gone from taking it 3-5 times a week to zero.
It’s life changing and I got very emotional the last few days when I pushed my self to situations where in the past I would have got asthma but I don’t get it anymore.
I wanted to test myself. Same result. Nothing. My lungs have gone back being the lungs I had when I was 8.
When I was running around, worry-free and full of happiness.
This is it guys, it’s a HUGE news from me and I wanted to share it with you all.
With the help of Homeopathy, better Lifestyle, better Mindset I got rid of my Chronic Illness.
It may come back at times, but if it does it won’t stay anymore, it will be a small episode, the main issue is now resolved.
Bye Bye Asthma, you will NOT be missed xx
