Measles at the age of six left me with asthma, for which I now need Becotide, Serevent and Ventolin, but not in the same quantities I used to need before I began therapy with a crystal healer and reiki master about eighteen months ago. It's not something that has worked overnight, but improvement is gradual. I carry a crystal called hematite. Although I'll probably be dimissed as a crank, all I can say is that it's helping me. Also, please note that asthma has to live with me, not me with the asthma, and it has to go along with a positive attitude. When I was a child I wasn't allowed to take part in anything physical, which probably accounts for the dreadful shyness I can't overcome, but these days I sing, swim, dance etc. Be positive.Don't let your asthma rule you.
