Steroid inhalers suppress the innate immune responseThe body's first line of defense against intracellular and other pathogens. According to the Marshall Pathogenesis the innate immune system becomes disabled as patients develop chronic disease., reduce immunopathologyA temporary increase in disease symptoms experienced by Marshall Protocol patients that results from the release of cytokines and endotoxins as disease-causing bacteria are killed., and delay progress for Marshall ProtocolA curative medical treatment for chronic inflammatory disease. Based on the Marshall Pathogenesis. (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.
