 Mirror Athlete Enterprises Question and Answer “Asthma Story”

Q.    Is there any relationship with house hold toxins and asthma?

   A.    Let me share Zachary’s Asthma story with all of you.

  When Zachary was 6 months old he was diagnosed with asthma.  My husband and I thought it was strange because no one in our families had asthma.   We were unsuccessful treating him with a nebulizer and steroids.  When he turned 1 and we were still unsuccessful, our Doctor referred us to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics to a Pediatric Pumologist.  Up to that point we had been in the doctors office an average of 2 times per week.   They changed his meds to 2 different inhalers that were attached to a chamber for him to breath the meds through.  They also put him on Orapred (a steroid) that can cause stunted growth.   They had me keep this medication in our refrigerator- when he needed it I had to call Iowa City and talk to a doctor on call – they always had to chart it.When Zachary was 6 months old he was diagnosed with asthma.  My husband and I thought it was strange because no one in our families had asthma.   We were unsuccessful treating him with a nebulizer and steroids.  When he turned 1 and we were still unsuccessful, our Doctor referred us to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics to a Pediatric Pumologist.  Up to that point we had been in the doctors office an average of 2 times per week.   They changed his meds to 2 different inhalers that were attached to a chamber for him to breath the meds through.  They also put him on Orapred (a steroid) that can cause stunted growth.   They had me keep this medication in our refrigerator- when he needed it I had to call Iowa City and talk to a doctor on call – they always had to chart it. When Zachary was 6 months old he was diagnosed with asthma.  My husband and I thought it was strange because no one in our families had asthma.   We were unsuccessful treating him with a nebulizer and steroids.  When he turned 1 and we were still unsuccessful, our Doctor referred us to the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics to a Pediatric Pumologist.  Up to that point we had been in the doctors office an average of 2 times per week.   They changed his meds to 2 different inhalers that were attached to a chamber for him to breath the meds through.  They also put him on Orapred (a steroid) that can cause stunted growth.   They had me keep this medication in our refrigerator- when he needed it I had to call Iowa City and talk to a doctor on call – they always had to chart it. We went on like this for another year.
 

When we moved to North Dakota I was introduced to a Company that had safe, non toxic cleaning products, laundry soap, personal care products, etc.  They told me if you have anyone in your home with asthma, allergies, itchy skin, etc., you will love these products.  I tried them.  It was 100% guaranteed and it was already money I was spending on similar products at Wal-Mart.   It was no new money that came out of my pocket.  Two months after getting rid of the toxic cleaning products we were using,  we saw a remarkable change in Zach’s asthma.  He was no longer wheezing, no longer needed any meds and his lips did not turn blue when he cried now.  It has been the best thing for Zachary we have ever done.  Plus I am saving about $150 a month I was spending on meds.   I am so thankful everyday that I was patient enough to give this a shot- It has made all the difference in the world for Zach.  All we did was switch stores to purchase safe, non-toxic products.  Plus these products are less money and don’t have the toxic chemicals then their equivalent at Wal-Mart.
I have people ask me are you sure it was the products?  I respond to that saying- “We have done nothing else differently and I refuse to go back to what I was buying at Wal-Mart to test it.”  We know- we lived with this little boy for 2 years and have seen the change.  We know it has been the products.  I can not say it has cured his asthma, but it definitely has a handle on controlling the symptoms.
