Holistic Health News: A Licensed Naturopathic Doctor Explains the ...

Western VS Alternative Medicine: What Are the Options When You Are Living with Allergies and Asthma?

According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA: asthma affects more than 20 million Americans (approximately 1 in 15), and over 50% of asthma cases are related to allergies. Combined, more than 60 million Americans suffer from asthma or allergies. Western medicine provides a number of helpful solutions for people suffering from asthma. The most common are:

1. Fast acting, short duration inhalers contain a bronchodilator to open up airways quickly when an asthma attack is in progress. They are often referred to as rescue inhalers.

2. In recent years corticosteroid inhalers have become a common conventional treatment. Corticosteroids effectively reduce inflammation in the lungs and often times are paired together with a long acting bronchodilator.

In addition to inhalers many asthma and allergy specialists seek to identify various allergens with allergy tests. Then they often prescribe allergy medications or shots to help reduce allergic reactions that may lead to lung inflammation and airway constriction.

Holistic Medicine and a Naturopathic Doctor’s Approach to Allergies and Asthma

As a naturopathic doctor I have both personal and professional experience dealing with allergies and asthma. I have struggled with allergies and asthma since childhood and at one time was prescribed nine different medications to mange my symptoms! I believe firmly that Western medicine has a lot to offer, especially to manage emergency situations, but holistic medicine and natural treatments also have an important role to play.

Holistic Health Considerations

Asthma can have many underlying causes. Asthma is an inflammatory condition that affects the airways. The lungs have an increased amount of reactivity to triggers that cause constriction of the airways and mucus production. Allergies are one of the most common triggers. In order to create a holistic health solution for asthma patients with allergies I must evaluate all of the internal and external environmental triggers.

First I speak with the patient about potential external environmental triggers. Do they have sensitivities to dust mites, pet dander, molds, chemicals, etc? Even poor air quality can be a trigger. The AAFA recently released their annual list of Top 10 Worst Cities for Asthma. Six out of ten are in the Southeastern United States.

Next, I evaluate the internal environment of the patient. I examine the patient’s constitutional strengths. I consider nutritional factors, as well as hormonal balance, and identify if the patient requires a body detoxification program.

Naturopathic Treatments for Asthma and Allergies

Important nutrients are often deficient in people who have asthma. Essential fatty acids, antioxidants, vitamins and minerals are often needed in order to strengthen the respiratory system and the body as a whole. Herbal medicine can also be recommended to clear mucus, reduce congestion and tonify the lungs. In my holistic health and naturopathic practice I also use Electrodermal Screening to identify allergens and desensitize patients to them. This is a fairly uncommon treatment, but has excellent results. This natural treatment helps patients remove triggers such as fragrance allergies, seasonal allergies and mold allergies.

Common Food Allergies Related to Asthma

Many people do not know that living with allergies can make their asthma symptoms much worse and more difficult to manage. Common food allergies are often triggers for children and adults suffering from asthma. Electrodermal Screening can also help identify common food allergies like wheat allergies, gluten allergies and milk allergies. This is why, as a naturopathic doctor, I place high value on the relationship between asthma and nutrition.

Dairy and wheat allergies have been shown to aggravate inflammation in susceptible individuals, which makes asthma symptoms worse. With proper nutrition, herbal medicines, allergy desensitization and supplements, people with asthma can see a great reduction in the number of asthma symptoms or attacks. This holistic health approach combined with conventional treatments can improve quality of life for even some of the most serious asthmatics. You may find with more natural treatments that reliance on an inhaler decreases over time as the body becomes healthier and functions at a more optimal level. When Western medicine and naturopathic approaches are combined, patients with asthma have the opportunity to improve quality of life and overall health.

How To Make Money With Pro Wealth Solutions by Terrence Sanders

If you are considering joining Pro Wealth Solutions, there are a couple of things you should consider before you start paying $35 for the membership.

Pro Wealth Solutions is a typical MLM business opportunity. Meaning that you sign up, start paying the $35 membership and then you will be paid a commission on whoever you get to sign below you. In essence, you are being paid a portion of your “downlines” membership money.

Some will classify this as a “Pyramid Scam”. Though it is a pyramid structure, the word “Scam” is a little harsh. One definition of “scam” that is apropos to this situation is “to obtain money from somebody by dishonest means”. If Pro Wealth Solutions promised to give you access to their resources for a membership fee of “X” and did not deliver, then that would be a scam. If they promised that you are going to make “X” amount of money if you pay them and “Y” amount of membership money, and don’t deliver, then THAT would be a scam. Further, if PWS promised to pay you “X” for each person you sign up and fail to send you a check when your downline is 150 deep, then that would be a scam.

We have yet to see that happen. As a matter of fact, PWS is quite prompt with their payment of earned commissions. We have FULL access to their resources. And as with any business, online or off, they have never guaranteed the amount of money we would be making. So we don’t see scam. YET!

I say yet because things can change. But until they do, we will continue to implement what PWS has to offer into our own strategy.

Now, if you have not taken a look at Pro Wealth Solutions, do so now. It is free to evaluate. Of course our mantra: DON’T SIGN UP FOR ANYTHING THAT YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. You are just signing up so that you have access to what PWS has to offer.


Pro Wealth Solutions offers several what they term “Income Streams”. The idea behind these income streams is for the member, in addition to signing people up, to have multiple products to sell which will help you put cash into your pocket while you grow your business. Here are the income streams:

Credit Card Processing
Real Estate Training

And several other training pieces that you are licensed to reproduce and sell in any creative way your little heart desires.

I come from a real estate investment background. So when I saw the Pro Wealth Mortgage Business, it clicked for us. After carefully assessment, and of course extreme due diligence, (I had to speak to whoever was going to be originating the loans, I had to find out the legality of what they were doing, and other loan industry questions like how they handle appraisals, notary issues, origination fees, funding time lines etc.)

The rest was easy! All of our executive members at The Pro Profit Team have since refinanced our homes and investment properties through PWS. The bank that PWS has the relationship with is a publicly traded FDIC insured Bank. Not a mortgage broker. So there are no brokerage fees. I got a better interest rate than I had on a 4-plex that I own and they were able to save me about $800 bucks on my monthly mortgage payment.

Because we are customers, it is truly an easy sell. All of my friends and family are using They are that good!

Our strategy is to present to as many people as we can within our community. We have a great strategy that targets hard working class people (like myself). The sell is the most soft sell in the world! It works like this:

Hey “Homeowner”, Check these guys out. (give them the info) I just recently refinanced my house with the people and they saved me $800. They may be able to save you some money as well!


Hello “stranger in the pub” I overheard you talking about your home, you should check these guys out, they have some of the best interest rates I’ve seen lately.

You wouldn’t believe me if I told you how well these two strategies work! I have yet to meet a homeowner who wouldn’t like to save money on their mortgage. Here is the phrase that is worth $1,000 almost every time you speak it:

“They may or may not be able to save you money. It’s definitely worth checking into!”

It’s that easy! This is not a potion made from some fruit from New Guinea. This is not a super vitamin, this is not set of motivational tapes, this is not protein powder. This is a Mortgage!

(…Unless you are independently wealthy and are paying cash for your home; In which case you don’t need a program like Pro Wealth Solutions!)

That is very VERY POWERFUL!
