Inside the lungs, an intricate system of tubes called “bronchi” branches out from the trachea and into each lung, getting smaller and smaller
as they spread out. The tiniest tubes are called bronchioles, and each lung
contains about 30,000 bronchioles, terminating in tiny air sacs called alveoli,
where oxygen is received into the bloodstream and carbon dioxide is released
back up through the airways.
Asthma is a swelling and narrowing of the bronchioles, that leads to difficult
breathing. Causes of asthma vary, but it can be triggered by allergies which
lead to an attack. During an asthma attack airways are worsened by an increase
in mucous, inflammation, and muscle spasms. Symptoms may include coughing,
wheezing, shortness of breath, and tightening or pain in the chest.
Asthma attacks are not only frightening, but they can be life threatening if not
treated properly. Taking precautions to avoid asthma attacks is important. Stay
clear of food and other likely asthma triggers, including dander, pollen,
smoke, mold, or any other allergen triggers and respiratory irritants. The use
of air purifiers may help reduce allergens in the air. A healthy diet, plenty
of water, and staying active when possible will also help reduce symptoms. Wash
hands regularly to reduce the risk of respiratory infection and other

AsthmaClear is a classic example of how RidgeCrest Herbals combines two very
different natural sciences to deliver a more powerful result. AsthmaClear
blends the subtle power of Homeopathy with the ancient wisdom of Traditional
Chinese Medicine to create a unique and powerful formula that addresses asthma
in a whole new way.
Homeopathy is thought to work by challenging the body to provoke a natural
healing response, much as a vaccine challenges the immune system to provoke a
natural immune response. AsthmaClear contains several potential allergens and
other natural ingredients in a highly diluted form that are designed to help
the body better respond to respiratory challenges, working to provide both
short-term and long-term relief for tightness in the chest, wheezing and
shortness of breath.
In Traditional Chinese Medicine the focus is always on addressing the underlying
problem, rather than only treating short-term symptoms. AsthmaClear was
formulated to work in both areas. The powerful and time tested spices, Cinnamon
and Ginger are traditionally used to help support proper respiratory function.
Perilla has been used traditionally to help loosen phlegm, reduce cough and
other asthma symptoms. Schizandra root and tangerine peel also have a long
history of use in Traditional Chinese Medicine for the relief of asthma
symptoms. Taken together, the herbal portion of AsthmaClear is designed to
support normal and healthy phlegm and cough, support normal inflammatory
response, and assist the body in the healing process triggered by the
portion of the formula.

AsthmaClear is a very different formula from our flagship ClearLungs formula. While ClearLungs is generally aimed at wet congestion and phlegm,
Asthma Clear is directed more at dry, wheezing conditions. Both are designed to
support a normal and healthy inflammation response and help the body normalize
moisture levels in the lungs. However, individual responses vary, and some
people just respond more completely to one formula than another. The formula
that works best for a particular individual and condition might not be the one
normally expected. AsthmaClear and
ClearLungs offer two alternative approaches to lung health and free breathing, to provide
maximum relief to the broadest range of individual needs and conditions.
“Since beginning your twice a day program with AsthmaClear ... I have stopped
taking all asthma related medications, including several inhalers that I used
regularly during each day for many years. Your AsthmaClear is terriﬁc.” B.S., Hawaii
“Taken as directed, Asthma Clear is the only product that I have regularly used
which consistently gives me superior results—namely, clearing my breathing passages, holding the Asthma at bay, and giving me
at least 4 hours, and sometimes up to 6 hours, of labor free breathing.” H.A.G., New York
