When I went into the health food store to buy my daughters Soy Butter one of the employees suggested Quercetin a Bioflavonoid for my daughters asthma and PA. She said works by strengthening cell walls that release histamines into the blood streem, it also works as an anti-inflammatory agent by deactivating enzymes that produce inflammation. It aids in making more vitamin C available for the body by keeping it from oxidation. Hopefully I got all that right.

Has anyone used this, or anyother non conventional treatment?

pHi,br /
A customer of mine at the restaurant I work in, bought me a book called "The Cure is in The Cupboard".br /
It is all about the pure form of wild oregano oil. It is supposed to be very beneficial for a lot of things, including allergies and asthma.br /
He had told me his grand-child had suffered from asthma and it had helped her a great deal. I understand it's a bit expensive though. A 0.45 fl oz. bottle of the liquid is about $75.00.br /
He gave me a small amount to try, and it did help my son. I keep meaning to order more, but always forget, until I need it!br /
It is only made by one company that I know of- North American Herb Spice. The number is 1-800-768-7873.br /
It has no chemical additives. The book is written by Dr. Cass Ingram./p

pYou know what, I think you need to speak to your allergist and or your ped. I am sure that if this was helpful, and I mean medical proven in a double blind study, then your doctor(s) would know. There is such a thing as the placebo effect in medicine. Basically, it means your body makes itself think it feels better because your brain tells you it must be better.Lots of "health food clerks say alot of stuff, some of it is true and some of it is unproven hogwash. Caveat Empor./p
