Description
This book challenges conventional wisdom about the causes and treatments of asthma. Could hard-to-treat asthma be triggered by a persistent infection? Dr. David Hahn presents the scientific evidence and compelling case histories that led him to his surprising conclusion. He describes the treatment protocol he has used successfully. Find out if your asthma might be cured instead of managed. If you suffer from adult-onset or steroid-resistant asthma, you will find stories from patients like you who overcame their breathing difficulties using Dr. Hahn's treatment protocol. If you are a health care provider, you will find medical references explaining the biological underpinnings of C. pneumoniae and M. pneumoniae as sources of respiratory inflammation. You will also find Dr. Hahn's specific recommendations on the protocol for treating these smoldering infections.
