Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease of the airways. When not diagnosed or properly treated, asthma can lead to a host of social and financial problems.
Hospital studies show that the common cold and related bronchial asthma and respiratory illnesses from infection, can be rapidly cured when patients are treated with fulvic acid. Especially pleasing to parents is the powerful and immediate effect this therapy has on young children.

New research by Dr. David L. Hahn of Dean Medical Center, Madison, Wisconsin, shows that pneumonia related respiratory disease and acute bronchitis caused by chlamydia pneumoniae appear to be the cause of most asthma. His recent studies show that asthma patients have been found to have a high level of antibodies for chlamydia pneumoniae, which seems to be a common denominator among asthma sufferers. Dr. Hahn believes that chlamydia antibody detection can be an effective tool in diagnosing asthma.
In hospital studies, profuse otherwise unstoppable bleeding of the mucous membranes of the nose, mouth, throat, bronchial and lung areas, related to acute respiratory and viral infections in patients with tuberculosis, heart failure, leukemia, and other serious diseases, were successfully stopped with fulvic acid therapy.

Extensive research of HMO studies conducted from 1967-1987 showed that "prevalence of asthma increased steadily and significantly...in both males and females in all age ranges." These findings were reported in the April 1998 issue of the American Journal of Respiratory and Critical Care Medicine. Although the data in those studies does not go beyond 1987, the researchers found that "more recent national data suggest that these increases are continuing." The weight of the evidence for an ongoing rise in asthma, they conclude, "is growing steadily."
Hospital studies showed that serious and acute cases of chronic bronchitis were better treated and cured with fulvic acid (96.77% cure rate) that worked significantly better than conventional drug therapy. Symptoms of inflammation, coughing, sputum and asthma, were also much better alleviated.

Speaking for the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma and Immunology, Dr. Gary Rachelefsky said: "Despite the fact that we have a real understanding of the disease and medications to treat it, we still have increased asthma." About 7% of the children in the US have asthma. The prevalence has increased 40% between 1982 and 1993. It is the most common childhood disease and is the top reason for pediatric hospitalization, accounting for up to 300,000 admissions a year. Asthma is the cause of 10-30 missed school days per asthmatic child per year. Asthma effects over five million U.S. children and adolescents, and accounts for 28% of all direct medical expenses totaling nearly $5 billion in spending per year.
