asthma-and-breathingThe following procedures are very simple, safe and cheap, and really worth the effort as they are very effective in relieving symptoms associated with several breathing issues including Asthma, Whooping cough, Bronchitis, Colds, Influenza, Rhinitis and Sinusitis.

Products required – Colmans Mustard Powder, Garlic Oil, Essential oil of Eucalyptus, Bowl for your feet, Valerian and Passiflora Drops 50/50 mix (optional). Give the procedures a try and let us know how you get on.

Asthma is usually bronchial. Asthma results from narrowing bronchi, the tubes which air passes through to and from the lungs, causing breathing to become laboured particularly on the out breath as the narrowed bronchi can no longer be effectively cleared of mucous by the act of coughing.

Similarly, whooping cough (pertussis) a highly infectious disease caused by Bordetella pertussis, spread by droplet infection. Clinical diagnosis in the early stages of this disease is very difficult until the whoop develops, which is not always present. For this reason, it is often mis-diagnosed as Asthma because in the early stages it provokes similar symptoms.

In Chirokinetic Therapy we see a number of patients suffering from chest complaints, particularly Asthma. Quite often, upon testing, we find a sensitivity or even allergy to airborne products such as house dust mites and fungal spores. In some cases even inhaled medication is poorly tolerated by the body. If Asthma, Rhinitis, Sinusitis or Bronchitis is brought on or worsened by an allergy reaction it is a very good idea to find your nearest CKT practitioner for an allergy treatment or visit us at:


Mustard Foot Bath – Fill bowl with hot water deep to ankle depth. Dissolve half a large tin of mustard powder. Immerse feet for 10 mins then towel dry. For children under 8 use 1/3 of a tin.

Mustard has a drawing action, it literally helps the body to draw down the mucous and enables the body to use the kidneys to excrete thereby taking the pressure off of the lungs.

Foot Balm – 1 teaspoon garlic oil mixed with 10 drops eucalyptus oil (5 for children) Rub mix on soles of feet, cover with an old pair of socks and leave on overnight. (Garlic oil can be home made by placing peeled cloves of garlic in a bottle of Olive or Almond Oil).
The foot balm has the effect of gaining the benefits of Garlic and Eucalyptus quickly into the body, if you think how porous your feet are you will understand how they will be absorbed by the body in this way.

Valerian and Passiflora Drops – Rub on chest and over and under shoulder blades this helps relaxation of the bronchi.

Foods which are mucous forming, such as starchy, sugary and milk products should be kept to a minimum. Foods which are particularly beneficial include onions, garlic, leeks, parsley, chicken soup and those foods rich in Vitamin C. Non-acidic vitamin C supplements are very useful in this regard.
