Millions of people suffer from asthma, and asthma rates have been going up dramatically in the last few decades, primarily among industrialized nations. What is causing this almost epidemic surge of asthma? Is it as simple as air pollution and allergy triggers? More importantly, can asthma be reversed, and if so, how? Using over a thousand scientific references and clinical reports, "Asthma Solved Naturally" provides the surprising answers to these questions. Rejecting the 'dumbing down' of this condition as often portrayed, the author - a California Naturopath - comprehensively demonstrates the underlying causes of asthma while providing hundreds of clinically and scientifically verified inexpensive natural strategies - some thousands of years old - used successfully to eliminate asthma.
