Why do I have asthma? Is it because of all the second-hand smoke my family created when I was a baby and growing up?

Anybody got any secrets or tips on how to stop asthma without medication?

I'd appreciate it!

Thanks,

Yeah, that's right, though they spell it with a "K" at the beginning and no "t" before the "z."

I suppose my father's people must have come from there originally. He explained to me once that the city (and family) name came from the Latin "confluentia," meaning the place where two rivers—the Rhine and the Mosel—flow together.

Usually the Thai policeofficers would waste hours on discussing who should be "the good cop" and who should be "the bad cop"  ;)

How long has this been going on? Have you considered possible allergies, that might trigger/stack with astma attacks?

Things like improved by swimming for a long time is said, but the inflammation is not subsided.
It is because you feel the medical condition has become better that you have trained the respiratory muscles, to increase the value of the peak flow. It should also be noted that being exacerbated by the chlorine in the pool, in some cases.  The fatigue caused by swimming, some patients became ill with the chlorine.

If you can try with...

[Radish, Daikon]  It is recommended to drink the grated radish (daikon) juice added honey.
[Ginger] Attack will subside to drink the hot ginger juice added honey.
[Leek] Attack will subside to drink take the leek juice.
[Garlic] It is said that if you eat garlic steamed daily, asthma is cured naturally. And the garlic juice is effective for attack.
[Ginkgo] The symptoms are alleviated when you eat about 5-6 pieces of grilled ginkgo.
[Potatoes] Potassium has the effect of improving asthma.  Potatoes are rich in potassium, to be called "King of potassium."

From Japanese Wiki:
http://ja.wikipedia.org/wiki/%E6%B0%97%E7%AE%A1%E6%94%AF%E5%96%98%E6%81%AF#.E3.81.9D.E3.81.AE.E4.BB.96.E3.81.AE.E6.B2.BB.E7.99.82


And protect your breathing with the mask if possible when you use products the type of spray paint in your work.

But I think you probably know unfortunately that your love for the cats has a negative impact on most of your asthma !! :(

Take care of yourself, LCat!  :)

I'm fine, thanks.
Got promoted at work which while wonderful in itself, triggered a workload avalance of different projects, which was the main reason for my recent board hiatus.

But now summer is here, (and it's even the very rare, warm and sunny kind!  :o ) so it's all about enjoying it while we have it.

I'd be enjoying the New York summer more if it hadn't been over 90° F/32° C for seven days in a row!  :o

What is the world coming to if you can't even quote a single line from a novel without being sued by representatives of the dead author's estate? ???

http://artsbeat.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/07/19/the-past-is-not-dead-but-faulkner-case-against-midnight-in-paris-is-dismissed/

Fortunately, the judge threw it out ... and gave me a laugh on a hot summer's afternoon:

Quote
Having viewed “Midnight in Paris” and read “Requiem for a Nun” in the course of the case, Judge Mills wrote that the court was “thankful that the parties did not ask the court to compare ‘The Sound and the Fury’ with ‘Sharknado.’”

At least the case prompted him to watch a good movie and read a good book, so it's not a total loss.

AskReddits new challenge (What is the best horror story you can come up with in two sentences.) has given some damn creepy replies...

A few examples ;

I begin tucking him into bed and he tells me, “Daddy check for monsters under my bed.” I look underneath for his amusement and see him, another him, under the bed, staring back at me quivering and whispering, “Daddy there’s somebody on my bed.”

The doctors told the amputee he might experience a phantom limb from time to time. Nobody prepared him for the moments though, when he felt cold fingers brush across his phantom hand.

They celebrated the first successful cryogenic freezing. He had no way of letting them know he was still conscious.

Remember Tom Ligon, who played young Horton Fenty in Paint Your Wagon? The New York Times had a nice human interest story on him recently:

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/08/17/nyregion/he-used-to-be-on-police-dramas-then-he-met-a-bad-guy-in-real-life.html

In brief, he foiled a burglary. But it's really a vest-pocket biography of the man, and a nice read.

(I put this here rather than in the "Eastwood in the Press: Minor Mentions" thread because, well, it's really not Clint-related. But a good story, anyway.)
