Q: Dear Dr. Mao,
Does magnesium work for asthma?
A: Magnesium is frequently mentioned as a treatment for asthma, but no good studies have shown that oral magnesium is helpful. Some evidence exists that intravenous and inhaled magnesium may offer some short-term benefit, but the relevance of these findings to taking magnesium supplements by mouth is unclear.
Additionally, you may find these specially formulated Traditions of Tao products helpful for asthma: “Lung Congestion”, “Breathe Ease”, “Perpetual Shield”, and “Yang Exhaustion”. Of course, discuss with your physician before beginning any new health regime.
