My 3.5 year old DD has virus-induced asthma, severe enough that when she gets colds we usually end up in the ER with an rx for inhaled nebulizer meds, prednisone, etc. Since April we’ve had her on a controller nebulizer (Pulmicort) 2x/day, and I HATE that I have her on it! But of course, it’s not good for her to be as sick as she normally has been.
We’ve been going to a holistic chiropractor, had 2 visits and she gave us some vitamins for a smoothie for her daily (something to decrease inflammation, a bottle of Super Greens, GABA in addition to the Omega-3 and vitamin D she was already taking). My concern is that this costs me $250 to purchase those vitamins and I don’t know…just wondering if anyone else has had success treating asthma this way? She was doing this kind of strange thing where she would press a bottle of vitamins we’d been taking against our stomach and have us press up on her arm—she said she was reading our energy to see how effective the vitamins were. Does this seem a little strange? I’m all for alternative medicine but this made me scratch my head. The clinic is a respectable one, she seems intelligent and knowlegdable but there’s a part of me that wonders if I’m being taken for a ride. Anyone else have experience with this?
I really, really, REALLY want to get her off her Pulmicort but also don’t want to see my baby girl not able to breathe.
