I would like to share an article that was written by one of my past patients for Grass Roots magazine. Its content is a good example of the results that can be achieved by most asthmatics by correcting the diet and following a healthier lifestyle:
I had been diagnosed and treated as asthmatic since I was about 10 years old (I’m now 28). As a child I was treated with Brondecon and eventually placed on Ventolin inhalers. I carried my Ventolin with me everywhere and because I was sports minded I would constantly suffer from attacks that would leave me sidelined, recovering. I had heard of people who had exercised or outgrown their asthma. So every day, off for a 6 km run, Ventolin in pocket, I would go. The result? More attacks and increased frustration. I eventually took some advice and went to see a well-reputed naturopath who advised me I would be rid of asthma in no time. Nodding my head up and down in agreement on the outside, but inside my logical thinking mind questioning this man’s credentials with his so-called advice for asthma.
All the milk I had been drinking up like a good boy and eating all my crusts were, as I was to discover, the major cause of my so-called asthma. I found out I was intolerant to milk and wheat products, which were causing my asthma. I was immediately placed on a detoxification diet of carrot and celery juice for two days, then for the next five days a diet of sweet fruits, e.g., rock melon, honeydew melon, watermelon for breakfast, salad with plenty of greens (no meat, sauces, pickles, salt or pepper )for lunch and steamed vegetables for dinner (at least 3 varieties). I was also given mineral supplements to assist my body with other imbalances, wished good luck and sent on my way.
‘Who does this guy think he is,’ I thought all the way home, ‘a miracle worker. A cure for asthma. Ha!’ Deciding to give it all my best shot I stuck to the diet with my naturopath monitoring my progress with monthly visits over a six-month period.
I no longer carry my bulky little Ventolin inhaler around with me. Asthma! What asthma? This cure worked for me and I wholeheartedly advise anybody with a mild to serious case of asthma to see a naturopath. We don’t have to be sidelined in our favourite sport because of some ailment that was diet related, I do not advise you to ‘go it alone’ on this one, I believe you must work in harmony with your naturopath’s guidance. If I can be of any assistance please write. – Darryl Simmons.
I treated this man many years ago and his story speaks for itself. My experience has been the same for just about all the people who have presented with this condition. In most cases, apart from complicated instances where the patient has been on heavy drug medication for many years, the results are always the same. Positive!
Why? Because correct education is personal power! My motto is: ‘education not just medication’. I reveal the cause of the condition and show them how they can help themselves and effectively remove the cause and give their body a chance to do what it does best – and that is correcting and healing itself. I do none of the curing, I do not offer a cure for asthma or any disease. I do, however, offer education on the cause of health and show my patients, listeners and readers (my students) how to build it so soundly that disease will not be able to continue to exist. Building health destroys disease. I do not fight disease; I build health and let nature do the rest. So simple, so effective and so true.
