Do you or someone you know have asthma?

asthma sufferers read on...

This is my families personal story.  Both of my boys have asthma.  My oldest developed it at a very young age and took preventative medication for years.  To this day, we feel the steroids he took most likely stunted his growth.  He is shorter than most kids his age.  My youngest son developed asthma with allergies about 5 years ago.  He was most miserable in Spring.  At first we didn't realize it was asthma.  The doctors would treat him for sinus infections, bronchitis, etc. when it was most likely allergy and asthma symptoms and not a bacterial infection.  After the 3rd Spring, I finally figured out that it was asthma induced by allergies.  For 3 years he was miserable.  He missed school, took several medications including steroids to try to control it, and he lost sleep long with other side effects.  His allergist said the only option would be allergy shots which would be a 5 year commitment.  Nether my son nor myself wanted to go through that process.  Therefore I searched for alternatives.   He had seen a chiropractor which offered no relief. (However, I believe there is value in chiropractic care.)  Then I got a call from a neighbor that shared a similar story about one of her boys.  She said she was giving him an all natural supplement that was helping his asthma.  She introduced me to the company that manufactured and sold this product.  After taking the supplement for 1-2 weeks,  I realized his asthma was gone while taking it!  To this day my son has no asthma symptoms while taking the supplement, and his allergies are better.  This discovery and others with this manufacturer's products led me to change careers.  I'm now on a mission to help others with their health needs.  If anyone has any questions or wants other health topics covered, maybe I can help - BeWell@integra.net

Mary, if you are going to post in a public forum as you did, then post your credentials out in the same forum. I am not emailing you directly and neither should anyone else. You opened this supposed discussion but many of your details are vague and suspect and if anyone listens to you that has asthma, then they are putting themselves at risk. No one can sue you, and your are dispensing medical advice without a license. If you didn't want to "go back and forth" on the issue then you shouldn't have posted on this forum.

It appears no matter what I say or how I say it, you are not getting the answers you need. What is it you are looking for exactly or what is not clarified enough for you? I have been trying to keep this professional, but your comments and responses have not been. If you have specific questions, please ask. However, I will not get involved in argumentive commentary.

Oh, I am the one not keeping it professional, you are the one that is asking people to personally contact you for your treatment; and did it on a public format. You are a person that believes she is a professional .. Quit you job to devote yourself to this treatment. Yet doing public research, you are a marketer not a doctor yet you are dispensing medical advice. Dangerous medical advice. Your first post was not professional, it is misleading and misinformed and deception. You first said you are a concerned mother and your neighbor "called" you with this treatment. You are a marketer for an alternative medicine company; easily found on LinkedIn.com. So you argument that your above my questioning and your professional is not a reason, Mary Hoyt is a professional huckster. Dispensing dangerous and potentially deadly advice to asthma sufferers. Remove you post, that is a true professional.

Just for the record, those beating up on Mary and defending modern medicine should note that most (if not ALL) of the medicines in active use today are derived from sources already found in nature - the same sources in many supplements. All modern science has done/claimed to do is refine it to make it supposedly more effective. Also much confusion stems from the fact it is the FDA's official position that ONLY a prescription drug can cure or treat ANY condition. It has been documented for many years that vitamin C helps one recover from scurvy (http://www.thefreedictionary.com/scurvy) yet if I were state that it "cures" or "treats" scurvy, I could be found guilty of making a medical claim without a medical license, even though I was making a statement that many doctors would agree with.

Heyitsme- The internet is a place were people should be able to express their opinions, beliefs and ideas with out critism, insults and ritacule. Mary is cleary trying to benefit her community with her professional knowledge and work expierence. Her company has FACTS that have been proven by top Universities and Labs all over the country. If you do not like or agree with her postings then simply do not read them. As you stated above you are fourty seven and clearly you are acting very immature and child like for your age. Most people at age fourty seven have better things to do than argue and make childish comments online that are flat out rude. If you further contact Mary Hoyt on ANY of her online websites, blogs or accounts I will contact the police and get it touch with my laywer. You have no right to try and tear down her growing business; at least she is doing something productive with her time unlike your childish self. Thank you and have a nice day.
