There's a lot of respiratory issues going on out there, increasingly so, and I'm a firm believer that all the chemicals in our world play a large part in this.
I wish I had the time for a super long post about greening your home, landscaping products, cleaning products, etc., but you can find tons of that information by googling it anyway. I like to google "mom wellness blog XXXX" for whatever i'm searching for so that any one of the amazing holistic, wellness-minded blogs comes up in the search.
Not too long ago I wrote a post about glutathione and its amazing effects on my dad, and talk about the foods and supplements that can be taken to assist our bodies in producing more glutathione.
In it I referenced The Healthy Home Economists's post: Tylenol Just Once A Month Raises A Child's Asthma Risk 540%, and Dr. Hyman's post: Glutathione, The Mother Of All Antioxidants. I was fascinated to read Sarah's (The HHE) discussion of how Tylenol may reduce glutathione in the lungs and blood, therefore damaging the body.
Well, I've since happened upon information about nebulized glutathione, which combines my croup post and my glutathione post into one amazing discovery!
You can read the incredible Dr. Whitaker's information on glutathione, in all its forms, here. He offers it in various ways at his Wellness Institute in Orange County, CA, including intravenously and nebulized, and says that one would just need to get a prescription for glutathione, to be filled by a compounding pharmacy, and can then be used at home in your own nebulizer.
I've since read many phenomenal stories of people and kids with asthma, COPD, cystic fibrosis and other lung diseases who have gotten great results with nebulized glutathione.
GlutaGenic.com has amazing information about glutathione and glutathione products:
As I always suggest, do some research of your own! If you need a nebulizer, I'd search medical supply stores near you...that's where we got ours!
Have you heard of nebulizing glutathione before? Do you know any lung-issue sufferers?
