Product Description
* The first book to fully explore the extraordinary effectiveness of black cumin against immune-system disorders, allergies, asthma, and skin problems.* Written by the world's foremost experts on black cumin.* Includes precise directions for preparation and specific recipes for treating a variety of ailments.

The extraordinary healing powers of black cumin have been known for centuries in the Middle East where the Prophet Mohammed himself declared: "Black cumin heals every disease except for death." It enjoyed wide use in ancient Egypt as a digestive aid and as an effective medicine for colds, headaches, toothaches, and infections. Because of its complex chemical structure--it has over one hundred active ingredients--black cumin has positive effects on the respiratory, immune, circulatory, digestive, and urinary systems. It is enormously effective against asthma, stomach ailments, and numerous skin conditions, ranging from acne to psoriasis. It also has been the subject of intensive scientific research indicating that it strengthens and stabilizes the immune system and is greatly beneficial in the treatment of allergies. It has even been found to be beneficial in the treatment of impotence when the causes are primarily physiological.

This book will serve as an invaluable resource for anyone interested in the healing properties of this incredible plant. It contains everything you need to know in order to use black cumin for the prevention and treatment of illness, including specific recipes for infections and allergies, and precise directions for their preparation. The authors even provide a section on the use of black cumin as a beauty aid and as a culinary staple. ... Read more

I have some Black Cumin seed from a website called www.blackseedusa.com and the book contains many wonderful recipes to use the Black Cumin seeds and oil for different ailments. I am eagerly waiting for the authors to write another book on the subject. To be sure you have the true Black Cumin always look for the botanical name "Nigella sativa"

Asthma prevalence is increasing worldwide, and there is growing concern about the burden of asthma both for patients and for the health sevices. There have also been major changes in the way in which the management of asthma death in some western countries in the 1960's and again in the 1970's. Asthma epidemiology has a major role to play in investigating the causes of these global changes, and in developing preventive interventions.

It describes the types of asthma epidemiology studies, and discusses the strengths and limitations of the various methods of measuring asthma prevalence and asthma morbidity and the major risk factors for asthma, methods of studying the causes of asthma deaths.

This concise little book contains everything you need to know in order to provide yourself or someone in your care with excellent asthma management.Dr. Plaut has taken all of the most up-to-date knowledge we have about asthma care and has distilled it into a highly user-friendly, easy-to-read guide.It is simultaneously comprehensive and brief, complete and to-the-point.It is especially useful for those who wish to learn all they need to know but who may not have the time or inclination to read through a more detailed resource (e.g., Plaut's Asthma Guide for All Ages).I especially recommend it to anyone working with children who may have asthma: teachers, day-care providers, camp counselors, etc.I recently gave it to my teenage daughter (who has asthma) so that she could better understand how to take care of herself.With a busy teenage schedule, she would never have taken the time to read through an entire book, but One-Minute Asthma provided her with the essential information she needed to know without taking up a lot of her time.

5-0 out of 5 stars super
This book is a super source of medically-sound information about treating asthma, including a great section on supplements. And don't let anyone tell you that what you eat can't make a difference!

4-0 out of 5 stars Generally good book
This is a good book that looks at the links between food allergy, candida, fungus and asthma, and offers good advice on diet herbs, supplements and alternative therapies. One thing I didn't like as much is that 2 out of 7 chapters are devoted to healing your mind and spirit. Although I am a big believer in the mind body connection and wouldn't mind a few pages on affirmation and positive thinking, it went a little to much into concepts like play and passion, dealing with anger, work and play, optimism, forgiveness, altruism, and emotional causes of asthma. I thought that the emotional causes of asthma part was also too much of the outdated theoryof let's blame the parents or the patient for the imbalance. I would rather forgo blame and work on where to go from here. This part of the book took it a little too far out of serious natropathic medicine and into self help book for me. Even so there is enough good information for the person looking for alternative treatments for asthma that it is worth the read. I did prefer "Reversing Asthma" although it is a few years older. But I would recommend this book.

4-0 out of 5 stars A totally different way to look at asthma
This book is a really different type of book, and lets you look into your whole health, both mental, and physical to see where problems may lie. I found it to be a big help for my son, and refreshingly different.

5-0 out of 5 stars NAET works - IF you treat to 100% clear on an allergen, not 50%...
NAET can clear even the worst allergies, and help relieve your asthma, if done correctly.

It can happen quickly, or if your allergies were as bad as my son's, it may take some time. The self-help methods in the books work if your allergies are moderate to mild, if you cannot clear them yourself using these methods, then you are probably below 45% clear on those items, and you should see a practitioner.I have learned to do full treatments myself, even on the really bad allergens, just from reading Dr. Devi's books, and Cutler's books, and combining that info. with what I've learned from the two practitioners I've gone to, and the four I spoke with. The practitioners are not permitted to give you all the info. on how it works, and the books do not give you all the "secrets" either, but if you investigate it enough, you can piece it together. (Here are some hints:It's more than just holding it and stimulating the points down the back.It's more than the holding/waiting period and avoidance time, which are essential - there are different levels that need to be checked and cleared on as well.) This is probably mostly for liability reasons, because people with anaphylactic tendencies should not attempt to do those allergens on their own.Just holding the item could invoke an allergic response, and practitioners know how to get around this safely.

If you get only partially clear on an item, and are still below 50% on it, it can actually make your allergies seem worse temporarily. This is called being "stuck on a treatment".You need to go back and finish clearing it the rest of the way. Once you clear an item all the way, you will feel great. Being "stuck on a treatment" usually does not happen on mild allergies, because you are essentially doing a "booster".It does not hurt you to try to clear allergens on your own, but you may need the help of a GOOD practitioner - some are better than others.

When my son and I first started receiving NAET treatments, we were going to a practitioner that didn't get us all the way clear, but we saw enough change to know that there was definitely something to it.I have since switched to a different practitioner, one who does percentages - this makes all the difference in the world!!She is also an RN, so is more familiar with severe allergic reactions, so I trust her more.It is possible to get a strong"ish" muscle test reading when you are at least 50% clear on something, but you may still have problems with the item until you get at least 70% or more clear. (Dr. Devi even says something about this in the patient handbook.) My practitioner treats to 100% on all items, and we are so much better now. (Some practitioners only treat to 50-60%, you may want to switch to another, or self-treat to clear it the rest of the way.)If you can learn to do it at home, like I did, it can really speed up the process.

My 8 yr old son who has been home schooled his whole life due to his severe food allergies, some foods he could not even touch... is now enrolled to attend a charter school this coming fall.This has been an answer to prayer for us in a major way!It works, if you get the right practitioner.We were better on some things, and worse on others until we found someone who would get us all the way clear on the allergens we had.My son has been able to re-introduce apples, chicken, watermelon, oranges, salad, vinegar, many other foods, and even some candy for the holidays.He was also allergic to some of his medications that seemed to make him worse when he used them.Now that he's been cleared on them, he can use them, and gets the full benefit from them.(We are hoping to eliminate the medications all together eventually.) He also used to get welts when cat hair even touched him, but was able to play with a cat for over 20 minutes the other day with no reaction what so ever.We are thrilled!

Some people have asked me how much the practitioners charge.Some are more expensive than others.Our first practitioner was $45 per treatment per person, but our practitioner we are going to now (that we feel does a better job) is only $20 per treatment, $40 for families of four or more seen at same time.There are still others that charge even more.Our current practitioner treats out of her "home-office", so has lower overhead, but she gives a better treatment in our opinion.She is also open to us doing home treatments, and follows up on the ones I have done to make sure they have cleared all the way.

Don't give up, keep trying, and find a good practitioner who knows how to treat you to 100% clear.I am not a practitioner, but I can answer questions based on my experience, or even ask my practitioner on your behalf.Please no junk mail, but for real quesitons, you can e-mail me at rnshormann@yahoo.com. Thanks, and God bless.

Product Description

Over 50 million Americans suffer from a range of frustrating allergy symptoms — from hay fever to asthma, hives to sinusitis. Many have tried medications, visited allergists, and used various treatments, desperate to find a reliable way to alleviate their pain, but just can't seem to get the dependable relief they need. Now, one of New York's top allergists, Dr. Dean Mitchell, lifts the cloud of mystery surrounding allergies and offers a breakthrough new treatment program that will dramatically lessen their severity, if not cure them for good. In Dr. Dean Mitchell's Allergy and Asthma Solution, Mitchell clearly and comprehensively explains what allergies are, why they are so prevalent, and all of the standard treatments. He then presents a cutting edge 5-step program for reversing allergies — called sublingual immunotherapy, or "allergy drops." This new treatment, widely accepted in Europe but still relatively unknown in the United States, is painless, convenient, incredibly effective, and completely safe since it works naturally through the body's immune system. Even better, it can be customized to meet specific needs, is shot-free, and can be self-administered. Dr. Dean Mitchell's Allergy and Asthma Solution is the best guide to understanding allergies and overcoming their symptoms.

4-0 out of 5 stars It works!
I read another review saying it was boring.My son has allergies and I found it very interesting, in fact a door opening for a new solution.With the advice in this book, we found an allergist that uses this drop method.In fact we found the original clinic that started the work in La Crosse WI.My 6 year old son has been on the sublingular drops for his multiple allergies for 8 months and has found quite a bit of relief.His peanut allergy has been downgraded from Severely allergic to Mildly allergic.His Spring allergies are so much better, we rarely have to medicate him, before we were taking zyrtec and benedryl all the time just to stop the sniffles.Its a program to follow and we'll be on it for a few years, his quality of life will beso much better.

1-0 out of 5 stars RUN - do NOT walk- away from BIOSET
I am posting this in the hopes that it saves someone from dealing with what I now have to deal with: I did a series of treatments of Bioset with a doctor trained by "Ellen Cutler", the creator of Bioset, and I am SOOO much worse now than I was before I was treated. I did almost all the treatments, spent a ton of money, and though some things seemed to work at first, about three hours after the last treatment (for which my "bioset technician doctor" treated me for WAAAAAY to many items at once, I got very, very ill with a high fever. Ever since then I have been chemically sensitive - cannot tolerate any scents - and I mean ANY. I also saw "Ellen Cutler" for a treatment or two and had no results. Now, I have to walk around with a shawl so I can cover my nose on elevators, in the movies, etc. because it is a very scented world we live in. We even had to make sure no one wore cologne or perfume to my wedding by printing it on the invitations it was so bad. This may sound a little over the top, and you know - I wish it was. The truth is, it is so much worse than I could ever express here. I did not have any of these sensitivities until I did those treatments, now I am plagued with them. Whatever "Bioset" does the creator and those she's trained do not understand what they are doing to the human body. Clearly they are doing something - but do yourself a favor, and stay as far away from these treatments as possible. There may be answers to your suffering, but I promise you - this is NOT one of them.

1-0 out of 5 stars I did not read this book, so take it for what it is...
I am really writing about my experience with NAET and Bioset. I read Dr. Cutler's book for practitioners as I was going through the "treatments". I have a great deal of respect for her and others who are trying to help sufferers and this protocol does seem to work for a few people, but it does seem to be a few.

I have chemical sensitivities and I tried both NAET and Bioset with NO success, only a big empty hole in my bank account. I was told I had to clear all these other things before getting to the perfume, when the treatment didn't work I was told I had to go back and clear some of the stuff that had already been cleared. In a nutshell, I spent a small fortune and am still allergic to all the stuff I was supposedly cleared for. This does work for some and we are not all the same, but my advice is to try EFT and TAT, both of which offer their basic protocols for FREE and work through it yourself.

You may get info about BIOSET in this book but you can not do the protocol by yourself, so if you want to try it read about it on the net and save a nickel...you'll need it if you want to try it.

I needed to write this because anyone with chemical sensitivities has been bilked out of loads of money, taken thousands in natural remedies and yeast cures, diets etc, In my own humble opinion...stay away from anyone or anything that wants your wallet before helping you! If you really want to do bioset and the practitioner is so sure of it, offer to make a contract to pay them $10,000 placed in an escrow account if they cure you and nothing if they don't...if they truly have those 80% plus success rates that would be a no brainer for them, see how many take the offer:) Everyone has a right to make a living, and recoup their expenses getting info out there, but those who carefully guard their "secrets" and want to sell you an e-book or seminar or something without offering you ANY substantial help or demonstration of efficacy, I would avoid. We can all be quite desperate at times with this thing. Like many of us I have done lots of things, lots and lots of things. Keep your wallet in your purse, until you know something works. I truly believe that anyone who has suffered with this or understands its impact on someone's life would not withhold the cure for ANY reason. I personally would actually be willing to spend my own money to get it out there, but that's me.

Gary Craig and Tapas Flemming I think still make plenty of money on their dvd's and seminars and certifications while giving people their system for free. I have purchased DVDs from both Tapas and Gary after receiving much needed free help. I admire and thank them and they have set the standards for what I look for in a healing system and the integrity of it's creators/promoters.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great Book, But Looking for More Info
This book was a god send.I tried the self techniques she writes about.They actually worked on my husband.However, I'm trying to follow the enzymatic therapy she discusses and it left me wanting/looking for more information.She doesn't really really give exact dosages on some items and there are so many enzymes, I'm not sure which ones to take.This left me wanting to read her other book:Micro Miracle.Also, when I go to the website for more information on digestive enzymes, some of the enzymes said I had to be a practitioner to purchase, which was disappointing.Another note:The author states that this technique is inexpensive....WELL.....I called a provider and she wanted $350 for first evaluation visit and $75 for all subsequent visits.That sounds pretty expensive to me. You could end up having many different allergies so the price tag could potentially be a hefty one.
Overall:I'm glad I read the book.... but need more info!

This is an awesome book that really explains a new-age system.I used to have bad allergies and sensitivities and be sick all the time.Now I feel great and have no congestion, headaches, stomachaches, or joint problems. I can even go for a walk in the weeds and enjoy the fresh air (it used to make me sick).Anyone with questions about the Bioset system needs to read this book and then just try it.Definitely use the enzymes! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent guidelines for the day-to-day with an asthmatic at home
I have an asthmatic in the family and I bought the book to learn more about it. Since I know the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, one of the best for children, I thought this was the place to start. I found the introduction of the book as an ebook online, and as soon as I finished reading I bought the book.

I have learned a lot. It has clear and thorough explanations about asthma and how the different medicines work. Also, incredibly useful and easy to follow advice to asthma-prove your home. I found this incredibly helpful. The book is very easy to read, too.

I strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to learn more about asthma, not just for kids but also for adults.

4-0 out of 5 stars Buy this book, you won't regret it.
Simple, easy to understand English.A very informative and practical guide to asthma for parents, caregivers, uncles , teachers et cetera.

4-0 out of 5 stars Knowledge
Athma is for life - if you child has it you need information to guide your decisions and their treatment - do not assume your pediatrician has a handle on your child's illness; they may - but how do you know if you have not armed yourself with information.This guide is a very helpful, detailed first step in getting a handle on your child's illness - understanding the course of treatment, medicines involved, causes, preventions, ect.Educate yourself for the long haul - it will benifit you, but more importantly it will benifit your child.

This book was very helpful in my understanding of childhood asthma. I know this is an increasing problem in the last few years, and this is a great resource.I especially liked the section on asthma myths - so many of those have been spread around causing misinformation and misunderstanding. I would highly recommend this to parents of children with asthma, and for healthcare professionals that care for these children. Bravo!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
As a parent of a child with asthma, it can be very confusing to understand all the different medications my child takes, and the different tests that she has had. This book helps to make all that clear. I would strongly recommend it for any parents of children with asthma. I feel that I can trust the information from this reputable source. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Asthma
I relied on this book when my son was a toddler (1984).A friend's son was recently diagnosed, so I bought this revised edition for her.It is a "bible" for any parent to educate themselves about asthma.It also contains information about real situations that other parents have experienced.Very valuable information!A must for every parent of an asthmatic child.

5-0 out of 5 stars ESSENTIAL READING
I have read numerous books about asthma in children, but this book is by far the best.The information is presented in a clear, understandable way, but is not so simplified as to be unhelpful.The book is full of good tips and pertinent information; it's like spending an hour or two talking with an asthma specialist.The book has what I found to be invaluable information about how to monitor asthma in children who are too young to use peak flow meters.A system called "asthma signs" is used and is a wonderful way to identify problems and monitor asthma in young children.
There is a also a very helpful section on traveling with a child who has asthma.
If I were to recommend only one book on asthma in children, this would be the book.

This book became my single source for reference about asthma. Till I found this book, I was reading anything and everything that I could find on the net about asthma. My 3 year old had an asthma episode as a result of a viral infection. She has an excellent pediatrician and we chose to care for her at home. I got great comfort in knowing that the things we did intuitively were the recommended things in this book. It helps to have a good doctor. It also helps to have this book as a friend. While I was freaking out that my daughter had asthma, this book helped me calm down cos I realized that it could be worse. My heart goes out to all the children who suffer. If you are a parent of a young child with asthma, read this book. It will help you understand what asthma is all about in plain words and give you an idea of what you can do to make your child's life more comfortable by learning to identify the symptoms and manage your child's asthma better. Make sure you have a good doctor, too!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredibly helpful
Last weekend my seven year old son had an asthma attack with no warning, his first ever.Our doctor treated him competently and he is now recovering nicely, but the information we were given -- and all the drugs and instructions -- were a bit overwhelming.My first response was to try to find some good books on asthma in children, and I was lucky enough to find this one.It explains everything you need to know about asthma in easy-to-understand language.I learned many important facts about the biology of asthma, the drugs my son is taking, long-term care and management of asthma, and -- perhaps most importantly -- the questions I should be asking his doctor.The book is well illustrated, including pictures of all the different kinds of inhalers and spacers, how to properly administer different medications, etc. (particularly useful for newcomers to the world of asthma). I also really liked all the information and sample forms showing how to keep an "asthma diary" of your child's symptoms and treatment.The first-person stories of how other parents have dealt with their children's asthma were helpful, especially for putting things into perspective.In summary, this book really helped me to understand what we are facing, and I now feel much better able to deal with it.I have other asthma books on order, but I doubt I'll need them -- it is hard to imagine how any other book on asthma in children could top this one.

Dr. Plaut was coming to a town near me to speak shortly after my daughter was hospitalized for the third time.One of the nurses handed me a flyer and recommended I go hear him.I bought his book before I went.This book was a lifesaver.I first read it nearly 10 years ago (spring 1992) and my daughter has not been hospitalized since!Dr. Plaut gives the average parent the confidence to handle this illness without falling apart and without having to decipher the medical-ese being spoken by the doctors in charge of their child. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars great information
Easy to understand, eye-opening, information that has helped me understand & move in the direction of remedying a chronic medical condition that I have developed.

1-0 out of 5 stars This book just doesn't deliver
I have developed a chronic inflammation and have been doing research.The title sounds good but it is totally inadequate.It's an easy read but adds very little true knowledge.There are several relationships to foods, spices, and herbs to relieve inflammation and very little is covered in this book.All of the author's credentials and nothing new.Lose weight, eat right,become a vegetarian,get your sleep, be happy is too simplistic.Still it's a good start for those at the very beginning of the road and those without any health knowledge or common sense.

4-0 out of 5 stars Helped me!
I used info gained in this book to help me with my fibromyalgia pain. It has really worked, to my surprise. I am thankful to the author.

1-0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing, no cure,
I know very well what inflammation is and how it adversely affects one's life. I've suffered with idiopathic inflammation for almost two years now. I've been tested for every disease, rheumatoid arthiritis, Lyme, erlichiosis, etc. The doctors cannot find the cause. I'm on Zyrtec 365 days a year to eliminate allergies. But even this does not lessen my joint inflammation at the young age of 43, thin, active and non-smoking.
I anxiously purchased this book to see what potential cures the author had to offer sufferers.None. Don't smoke, don't overeat, eliminition diets, exercise... all the usual stuff found in every health pamphlet. Nothing new here at all. I learned nothing my doctors hadn't already told me or I'd read online. It's a well-written book on an important subject. It just doesn't have answers as the title implies.

1-0 out of 5 stars - book has missed a fundamental point
There is nothing new in this book and from an asthmatic point of view- it misses the most important aspect of reversing inflammation. There is very little mention about controlling hyperventilation or overbreathing. The first step would be to teach asthmatics the importance of nasal breathing so that the airways dont constrict in the first place. One method of which there are several excellent self books are is called the Buteyko method. Do a search on Amazon for Buteyko.

I can guarantee that this area will provide far reaching improvement to quality of life than this book. Other sites which provide a great account of are http://www.buteykointernational.com/ or http://www.buteyko.ie or http://www.asthmacare.ie/

5-0 out of 5 stars Asthma and Allergy Help
I've read a lot of allergy books to help my daughter with her allergies. Allopathic medicine has hardly helped. In the process I've gotten to know a lot of other children with allergies and asthma. Several of us have really followed many of the suggestions in this book with fantastic results. Namely we have followed the supplement suggestions in the book, avoided the chemicals mentioned , and following the protocols for rotation and elimination diets. This is by far the most jam-packed-with-information book on the subject I have found. I wish the title made it clear that this will help with more than asthma, as it has helped my daughter with her allergies too. I also found Chris Reading's book Trace Your Genes to Health invaluable.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very highly recommended and informative reading for anyone suffering from asthma
Very highly recommended and informative reading for anyone suffering from asthma, this expanded and updated second edition of The Asthma Breakthrough: Breathe Freely--Naturally by Henry Osiecki (an international lecturer in clinical nutrition at universities, colleges, and professional seminars) is an extensively researched and expertly presented study of the innovative, safe and effective nutritional and natural medical information for dealing with asthma. Introducing readers to a vast understanding of the crippling disorder, The Asthma Breakthrough offers readers helpful strategies for a greater more healthy and active life despite allergy based asthmatic conditions. The Asthma Breakthrough is a an invaluable addition to alternative medicine library reference collections and would prove of great value for medical practitioners treating asthmatic patients, as well as non-specialist general readers with asthma disorder.
