So no doubt you’ve all heard something weird or wacky at some point about asthma. A cure, a suggestion for improvement, what causes it and just general conspiracies.
Time for use to share what we’ve heard (and if you think they’re true/helpful). Maybe someone has something that’s been suggested which honestly did help, maybe it’ll help those grasping at straws as to what is legitimate and what is an old wives tale, otherwise it’s just time for a bit of a laugh 😅😂😂
Here’s my first few; ‘you have severe asthma because you have a low self esteem’ (erm... I know people with very high self esteem who also have severe asthma so... thanks 🤨🙄😒)
‘Salt caves will help cure/calm asthma’ (not true. For some people they may help, but anyone triggered by cold or damp AVOID!) (friend has a 5yo grandson with severe asthma... someone told family this so they took him down one for a couple hours... he was then in hospital for 10 days afterwards. She told me about it/his asthma then regretted not telling me before the trip cause I actually gave risk/benefit and explained why people believe it. Next ‘suggestion’ was ran past me by her 😅)
‘ENT doctors have been hiding the cure for asthma for 50+ years’ ( 😂😂😂😂 if they had the answer they would share so they could become gods to the resp department and earn all the moolah)
What have you heard?
