    I would like to share my experience with you, cause it might help.

    When I was 2 years of age, I started having severe asthma attacks. After 2 years of western medicine, I was almost in the edge, my mother told me, one day I told here I wanted no more, that I didn´t really care if I died or not.
    That day, she took a decition that may have saved my life, and I believe it did. She went to an old Chinese doctor.
    Interestingly, when she arrived in the doctor´s house, carrying me in her arms, the doctor told her: "Don´t come one step closer if you are not willing to leave all meat from you diet, and your family´s". To that, my mother replied: "If you cure him, I will do as you say". The old Chinese doctor called "Mao", stayed there grumpy and told her to come on in. I say grumpy cause I don´t remember he smiling at all, not even 1 time.
    The doctor told my mother that my blood was contaminated from all the medicines, and before he starts my treatment, I would need 1 month of cleansing, no more western medicine, not even a pill... and no meat.
    When the month was done, the doctor started treating me with acupuncture and homeopathy, I remember that, I was a kid, and that Chinese dude was sliding needles in my back, my whole back, and my fingers. Then they used to put papers in my back so I didn´t fill the car with my blood.
    It seems a little harsh, but long story short, since I was 9 years old, I don´t have asthma anymore, I haven´t experienced an asthma attack since my childhood.
    My respect to Doctor Mao, rest in peace, I believe he cured me.

    "Then they used to put papers in my back so I didn´t fill the car with my blood."

    Does this mean that they provided extra papers so that car will not become dirty.


    Pls clarify.

    Is not as bad as it sounds, the needles passed through my back just barely penetrating the surface. I was a kid, but now that I think about it, it didn´t hurt at all. But after an acupuncture session, my whole back was bleeding, and the doctor covered it with papers beneath my shirt, so I didn´t make a mess with the blood.

    Codine?

    Also, pot has something in it that inhibits coughing. Medical marijuana.

    Now I purchased Nebuliser with the help of this instrument my wife takes vapours of anti bacterial solution (ASTHALIN).

    This has stopped her dry cough.

    Whenever she goes in the market (public space) and if she gets infected.she uses nebuliser.

    It's called antitussive effects, suppresses the body's urge to cough. Yeah codeine does it.
