The sponsors of have years of experience in providing care to adults and children with asthma . They don’t prescribe drugs, like asthma inhalers, with dangerous side effects that only address the symptoms of conditions. No, they go right to the source and try to identify the cause, so that you can heal from the inside out, not the outside in. Outside in (using an asthma inhaler to “fix” your asthma problem) – that’s just not true healing, it’s a band-aid on the problem and it will eventually fall off. When it does, the problem will still be there, and maybe they’ll be another one, in the form of a side effect, that might require another drug. Is that really the way you want to live? Is that really the way you want your child to live?
