Posted on: September 15, 2006
My problems are hypothyroid, diabetes, asthma and high cholesterol. I got asthma when I inhaled toxic fumes at work. That led to taking steroids, which led to my diabetes. What herbs can I take for all of these problems? I am tired of all the medications. Their side effects are worse than the illnesses.
I recommend that you read "The Schwarzbein Principle" by Diana Schwarzbein and Nancy Deville, ISBN 1-55874-680-3. Dr. Schwarzbein is an endocrinologist who has had great success with people suffering from conditions such as yours, allowing her to take most of her patients off medication. She explains well the relationship between all of these conditions, and she describes in detail the diet that she uses with her patients to cure body system imbalances. The diet is not the usual restrictive diet. It is only restrictive in carbohydrate intake, sugar and damaged fats.
