ATP Podcast: Asthma

Went through this podcast and made notes:

Neutrophil: infection type reaction.

tumeric is helpful

Eosinophil: allergic inflamation.

Associated with asthma and ecesema
relates to mast cell degranulation
bioflavanoids/anti allergic herbs are helpful

Histamine is produced by mast cell degranulation, as a responmse to an allergen. Causes blood vessels in the lungs to become leaky to secrete mucous to get rid of the allergen. Causes flushing reactions: itchy nose, roof of mouth itchy.


Perilla frutescens. 90% inhabition of mast cell degranulation. 4-5 leaves per day

bioflavanoids: quercetin, Rutin, luteolin (active in Perilla)

-These stabilise mast cells, lots of mast cell disorders, the solution is to make the mast cells tougher

Antihistamines: dry out the mucosa, which prevents O2 absorbtion, leading to bhroncial constriction. Not a good soltuion and creates reliance.

herb treatment helps educate the immune system to use different strategies to deal with the allergen.

Garlic stimulates the immune system while suppresing allergy

cranberry, cinnamon, pomegranite

Resilliance contains: francinsence, mhyrr, reishi

thyme: “really good antiseptic, very good anti-microbial.” – “If you get in the regular habit of using Thyme, it’ll sterilize a lot of these bad bugs and stop the infection in through the lungs.”

Fruits and vegetables

Vitamin D

Lemongrass ginger

Symptym relief:

Grindelia: beta agonist, like ventolin, makes heart race.

Elecampane: good for flegm in lower lungs


Dairy, grains, gluten, colours

respiratory acidosis: Magnesium and Schisandra
