Steroid inhalers suppress the innate immune response, reduce immunopathology, and delay progress for Marshall Protocol (MP) patients. For patients with obstructive lung diseases such asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and sarcoidosis, a bronchiodilator inhaler is superior choice.
MP patients taking steroid inhalers should work with their physicians to switch drugs.
I can tell you from personal experience that I too had to get off my steroid inhaler when I started the MP. I was so scared to do this, as my asthma was so bad. Much to my relief, the Benicar was better than the steroid inhaler! I also used a long acting (12-hour) non-steroidal inhaler, but after one year on the MP, I no longer needed it. I do still use the short-acting inhaler four times a day, but only need one puff.
My asthma is triggered by MCS. The MCS has also improved on the MP. I actually once left the house without my inhaler, and the Benicar stopped my asthma attack with in 10 minutes. I should have chewed and put it under my tongue, but I was not thinking. This allows for quicker absorption. I was so impressed that the Benicar could do this.
