Epigenetic Study Finds New Potential Drug Targets for Asthma and Allergies

A new epigenetic study has identified 30 genes connected to allergies and asthma that make people more susceptible to these conditions. Using the newly discovered gene targets from this study, scientists could potentially create drugs to combat allergic diseases and reduce allergic responses. About 6.8 million children and 18.7 million adults in the U.S. suffer … Continue reading Epigenetic Study Finds New Potential Drug Targets for Asthma and Allergies

Ten year study shows that UNVACCINATED are far healthier than their vaccinated peers who suffer from more respiratory infections, asthma, allergies, etc.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the National Institute of Health (NIH) refuse to conduct any study comparing the unvaccinated child to his/her peers. While HHS is legally obligated to conduct safety studies every two years and report to Congress in accordance with the 1986 National Childhood Vaccine … Continue reading Ten year study shows that UNVACCINATED are far healthier than their vaccinated peers who suffer from more respiratory infections, asthma, allergies, etc.

Researchers identify the compounds responsible for Anacardium occidentale’s (cashew) anti-asthma effects

Researchers from Nigeria investigated the bioactive constituents of Anacardium occidentale, also known as cashew, and evaluated its effects on histamine-induced paw edema and bronchoconstriction. They reported their findings in an article published in the Journal of Integrative Medicine. The leaves of A. occidentale have long been used for the treatment of inflammation and asthma, but the bioactive components responsible … Continue reading Researchers identify the compounds responsible for Anacardium occidentale’s (cashew) anti-asthma effects

Researchers find strong evidence linking artificial sweeteners to asthma

Even moderate consumption of fructose and high-fructose corn syrup (HFCS) from soda, fruit drinks and apple juice corresponds to a higher risk of asthma in adults. This is the finding of a recent study by independent researcher Luanne DeChristopher and Katherine Tucker from the University of Massachusetts Lowell (UMass Lowell), published in the British Journal of Nutrition. Their study found that … Continue reading Researchers find strong evidence linking artificial sweeteners to asthma

Investigating the efficacy of honey for treating bronchial asthma

In this study, an international team of researchers investigated whether honey alone or in combination with other ingredients can treat bronchial asthma. Their findings were published in the Journal of Medicinal Food. Bronchial asthma is one of the most common chronic inflammatory diseases. The use of complementary and alternative medicine to treat bronchial asthma is increasing … Continue reading Investigating the efficacy of honey for treating bronchial asthma

Pregnant Moms’ Exposure to Pollution May Epigenetically Increase Child’s Asthma Susceptibility

Exposure to environmental pollution, such as diesel exhaust or concentrated urban air particles, during pregnancy could increase a child’s risk of developing asthma via epigenetic mechanisms. Recent research in the Journal of Physiology – Lung Cellular and Molecular Physiology suggests that this allergic susceptibility might even be epigenetically passed down for several generations. Asthma forms as a result … Continue reading Pregnant Moms’ Exposure to Pollution May Epigenetically Increase Child’s Asthma Susceptibility

This Japanese herbal medicine reduces asthma in patients with upper airway disease

Research has found that traditional medicine could hold the key to managing asthma, especially in patients with upper airway disease. In a study published in The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, a team of scientists from Japan revealed that Shin’iseihaito, a herbal medicine traditionally used in Japanese medicine, can potentially reduce the incidence of asthma in … Continue reading This Japanese herbal medicine reduces asthma in patients with upper airway disease

Herbal combination used in Chinese medicine found to improve efficacy of asthma relief drug, study finds

A mixture of herbs commonly used in traditional Chinese medicine could help those suffering from asthma find relief, according to a study in BMC Complementary and Alternative Medicine. The study, led by researchers from Capital Medical University in Beijing, looked at the effects of using a decoction of Herba Epimedii and Fructus Ligustri Lucidi with the asthma drug budesonide can improve the condition using in … Continue reading Herbal combination used in Chinese medicine found to improve efficacy of asthma relief drug, study finds

Medicinal mushroom found to be an effective natural treatment for bronchial asthma

The medicinal mushroom called Grifola gargal — better known as gargal — has been used to naturally prevent and treat chronic inflammatory diseases. Now, research has found that it is also an effective remedy for allergic diseases, such as allergic bronchial asthma. The study, published in the Journal of Medicinal Food, looked at the effect of gargalextract on allergic diseases, particularly allergic … Continue reading Medicinal mushroom found to be an effective natural treatment for bronchial asthma
