I am a 50 + women who has never smoked or had a breathing problem in my life. But in Feb. I was admitted to the hospital with Acute Bronchitis. Since then I have gotten better for 2-3 weeks then my symptoms get worse. I am put on Prednisone and improve for 2-3 weeks then get worse. Along with inhalers I take allergy medication, acid reflex medication,Albuterol inhaler,symbicort, and when I really have problems I use a Albuterol sulfate inhalation solution in a nebulizer. I feel I have done everything right to improve my health so why can't I shake this thing? I do have a whole new respect for those of you who have suffered with Asthma all your lives and hope that some of you can give me some suggestions on some homeopathic approaches I may try. I well appreciate any suggestions.View Thread
