Q: What is Respitrol?
A: Respitrol is a liquid OTC medicine that uses a multi-tiered approach to naturally relieve asthma symptoms and promote recovery of the healthy lifestyle. We stabilize natural homeopathic ingredients into our organic purified ionized mineral water base.
Q: Is Respitrol approved by the FDA?
A: Respitrol is an FDA product listed natural medicine, and uses an OTC formulation. The active homeopathic ingredients are officially recognized, as listed in the HPUS and Homeopathic Materia Medica.
The FDA has regulated homeopathic medicine since 1938 by means of the guidelines in the HPUS, as per the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act. Said regulation is conducted in the same manner as that of nonprescription OTC drugs, according to The National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM). Respitrol is manufactured and packaged following the FDA's Current Good Manufacturing Practices (CGMP).
Q: How do I take Respitrol?
A: Dosage and directions are included on the label. You can add liquid Respitrol to a glass of purified water, or dispense directly into your mouth. See detailed instructions in picture below.
Avoid contamination: Do not touch the dropper to anything other than the product. (fig. 1,2)
When dispensing, squirt the homeopathic into your mouth without touching the dropper to your mouth. (fig. 3)
If dispensing directly into mouth is not convenient, you can put the solution into a spoon or a glass of water. (fig. 4,5)
Make sure to use non-metallic objects, as the metal can change the product's effectiveness.
Store in a cool, dry place. Avoid direct sunlight, along with prolonged exposure to high temperatures.
Q: Can Respitrol replace my inhaler?
A: Respitrol is indicated to relieve asthma symptoms including, chest tightness, shortness of breath, wheezing and coughing. Asthma is an inflammatory disease of the airways characterized by variable and recurring symptoms, reversible airflow obstruction, and bronchospasm. Respitrol is not intended to cure chronic asthma, nor is it intended to replace the emergency inhaler prescribed by your physician.
Q: How often do I take Respitrol?
A: For optimal benefit, take Respitrol consistently every day, once in the morning, and again at night.
Q: How soon can I expect to see results from Respitrol?
A: Respitrol is designed to work with your body to relieve your symptoms. For many individuals, results will be apparent within a few hours of the first dose. Because every person is different, however, the exact time taken for relief is indefinable. Respitrol functions best in a body free of underlying conditions, which can hinder the body's ability to achieve balance. A healthy lifestyle that observes proper nutrition and regular exercise is essential in order to experience the results of Respitrol. We encourage you to take Respitrol twice daily for 30 days to begin experiencing the results desired. If you cannot see improvement in the first 30 days, you are welcome to take advantage of our 60-day satisfaction guarantee and return the product. If you do see some improvement, however, we recommend that you stay with the program for 3-6 months to receive the desired results. Please see our 60-day return policy.
Q: How long does one bottle of Respitrol last?
A: A single bottle of Respitrol is two fluid ounces. The product's dosage is given according to weight. So, if you weigh 50+ lbs, each two-ounce bottle will last approximately one month for one person, depending on your individual health needs and usage.
Q: How much Respitrol will I need?
A: Each bottle of Respitrol offers a one month supply for one adult. Children may need less, and multiple family members taking Respitrol may need more than one bottle per month.
Q: Can children take Respitrol?
A: Yes, Respitrol is OTC formulated for safe and effective asthma symptom relief in adults and children over age 2.
Q: How safe is Respitrol?
A: Respitrol is made with natural ingredients and is, first and foremost, formulated to be safe. Respitrol has no reported side effects or drug interactions, and may be used with other prescription or OTC medications. Respitrol is safe for both adults and children 2 years of age and up.
Q: Has Respitrol been clinically tested?
A: The individual ingredients in Respitrol have claims based on the Homeopathic Materia Medica. As a composite formulation, however, Respitrol has not been clinically tested.
Q: Can I safely take Respitrol with medications?
A: The ingredients in Respitrol are natural and safe, but if you are currently taking prescription medications, we recommend you consult your health care professional before use.
Q: Is Respitrol an herbal remedy?
A: Respitrol is not an herbal remedy. Herbal remedies are based on the herb's use in traditional medicine, while homeopathy uses the "law of similars." Herbs use larger quantities of the product per dose. Homeopathic medicines use minute doses of the substance to address the symptoms. Herbal substances are regulated as food, where as the FDA accepts homeopathic products as drugs.
Q: What is the "law of similars?"
A: The "law of similars" is the idea that like relieves like. Homeopathy demonstrates that a substance that produces a certain set of symptoms in a healthy person can relieve the same symptoms in a sick person experiencing them. The homeopathic medicine is diluted to such minute doses that the ingredients are very safe.
Q: What is "Natural Medicine"?
A: As a natural medicine, Respitrol safely activates the body's natural relief and balance mechanisms, unlike many other OTC formulations that rely on chemical responses to activate or block healing responses, and come with notable side effects, as indicated per their product indications.
Natural medicine is safe, and the ingredients in Respitrol are regulated by the FDA according to the guidelines for OTC homeopathic formulation. While "natural" implies indications about the ingredients (Respitrol does contain natural active homeopathic ingredients), "natural medicine" more accurately refers to how the medicine works.
Q: What is Integrated Medicine?
A: Integrated medicine is a functional, balanced approach to wellness. Rather than relying solely on conventional methods, such as prescription drugs and surgery, or alternative methods like acupuncture and homeopathy, integrated medicine recognizes that the two can work together for optimal results. Health care providers who practice integrated medicine will use methods such as homeopathy in complement with more intense and/or invasive treatments.
Q: What is homeopathy?
A: Homeopathy is an officially recognized medicinal therapy that uses safe, naturally occurring substances to relieve symptoms of self-limiting conditions in the body. Observing the homeopathic dilution process per regulatory guidelines, we formulate the active ingredients in Respitrol for safe and effective relief from ADD/ADHD symptoms.
Q: What is the homeopathic dilution process?
A:Homeopathic Medicines are believed to be more effective when its active ingredient is diluted. This is the minimum dose approach to homeopathy. The purpose of potency is to dilute the product until it can do no harm to a person. Homeopathic drug potency is indicated by such terms as "10X," 30X," and "LM1." These refer to the amount of times and by what ratio the base substance has been diluted.
Q: What is HPUS?
A: The Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States (HPUS) is a compilation of standards for the components and preparation of homeopathic drugs. It has been in continuous publication since 1897, and became the official U.S. homeopathic regulatory guideline in 1938, as stated in the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act.
The HPUS is compiled by the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia Convention of the United States (HPCUS), which is a non-governmental, non-profit scientific organization of experts trained and experienced in the field of homeopathy. The HPCUS works closely with the FDA and U.S. homeopathic organizations.
Respitrol's active homeopathic ingredients are listed in the HPUS, and are therefore officially recognized.
Q: What is "Materia Medica"?
A: "Materia Medica" (Latin) refers to a body of information about medical knowledge. At HelloLife, we refer to specific Materia Medica that contain information on homeopathic ingredients. In general, we refer to William Boericke's Homeopathic Materia Medica.
The active homeopathic ingredients in Respitrol are recognized by such long-standing Materia Medica, and thereby are not required to undergo the same safety and interaction testing as new OTC drugs.
Q: What is purified ionized mineral water?
A: Purified ionized mineral water uses organic trace minerals to supplement the minerals necessary for enzyme functions in the body. This can speed up cellular metabolism and support your natural repair processes. The purified ionized mineral water in Respitrol is an effective stabilizing agent for the homeopathic ingredients, as opposed to alcohol, which is common to most homeopathic preparations but irritating to your system.
Q: How is Respitrol different from conventional products?
A: Respitrol is intended to safely relieve symptoms AND promote optimal overall health, while conventional products typically address only the symptoms, and usually with negative side effects, as per product indications.
Q: Is Respitrol a cure?
A: Respitrol is a natural medicine that works quickly to relieve symptoms of asthma, but it is not a cure. Instead, Respitrol is intended as a component of a healthy lifestyle, safely relieving your symptoms so you can focus on the big picture of your health and life. Choose whole, fresh foods, clean, pure water, and plenty of positive thought and movement, and you will naturally increase the effectiveness of Respitrol and the overall health of your lifestyle, and over time find yourself naturally relieved of asthma symptoms.
Q: What are symptoms?
A: Symptoms are the aspects of illness that you can see and feel; they are the way your body responds to an underlying problem. Although they tend to be negative manifestations, they are actually good in the sense that they are your body's way of telling you what is wrong. Respitrol is intended to help relieve the negative symptoms you are experiencing. When you are no longer hindered by uncomfortable symptoms, you can concentrate on helping restore your body to its healthy balance.
Q: Is Respitrol a drug?
A: Because the ingredients in Respitrol meet the "Criteria for Eligibility of Drugs for Inclusion in the Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia of the United States(HPUS)," and that the HPUS is an officially recognized compendium of homeopathic drugs by the FDA, Respitrol is considered an OTC homeopathic drug. Therefore, it has to comply with the Labeling Guidelines of the FDA. Homeopathic products have been considered drug products since 1938, as stated in the Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act.
It is important to note that, although Respitrol is technically considered a homeopathic drug (remedy) by law, its ingredients are natural and safe for supporting your body's healthy balance. Respitrol is not intended for use in the diagnosis, cure, mitigation, treatment, or prevention of any disease.
Q: Will this product cause me to experience detoxification symptoms?
A: The purified ionized mineral water base of this product is OTC formulated to initiate a seamless detoxification process, but some sensitive bodies may experience initial detoxification effects. As minerals begin to activate enzymes and chelate toxins and metals, sensitive bodies may experience mild acute symptoms of sores in the mouth (similar to ones caused by eating excessive salty or acidic foods) or loose stools.
Q: Does Respitrol come with side effects?
A: According to the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM), a systematic review found homeopathic products such as Respitrol to be generally safe and unlikely to cause severe adverse reactions when taken as directed. Respitrol contains no alcohol, making it superior to many other OTC homeopathic formulations in that regard.
While some individuals express concern about homeopathic aggravation (temporary worsening of symptoms after taking a homeopathic medicine), there is little evidence for it in clinical studies. Regardless of Respitrol's safety, it is always important to inform your health care provider about any self-medication you may use.
Q: What do I need to consider if I'm thinking about using homeopathy?
A: There are five important points to consider and act on, as stated by the National Center for Complementary and Alternative Medicine (NCCAM): First, homeopathy is not a replacement for proven conventional care or a visit to your health care professional. Second, research clinical studies conducted around the homeopathic remedies for the health condition you are trying to treat. Third, thoroughly acquaint yourself with any homeopathic practitioner you may visit. Fourth, women who are pregnant or nursing, or those thinking of using homeopathy for a child, should first consult with their health care professional. Fifth, inform all of your health care providers about any complementary and/or alternative practices you use.

What is Asthma?
Asthma is by no means uncommon. It is a disease that affects more than 22 million Americans, causes almost 2 million hospital visits every year, and is becoming ever more prevalent. In fact, since the 1980's the number of children being diagnosed with asthma has doubled. Now, nearly one in every ten children will now be diagnosed with the condition.
Asthma is a chronic disease that affects the airways and makes breathing difficult. It can appear in anyone, at any age, but is most common in individuals under age 40 and with a family history of asthma.
Asthma sufferers have overly sensitive airways which overreact to normally harmless substances and environmental conditions. When encountered, these triggers cause the bands of muscles surrounding airways to tighten or contract, restricting airflow. When air flow is restricted, the sufferer will feel short of breath and if symptoms are bad enough, a whistling or wheezing sound may accompany breathing.
Inflammation can then occur as a result. This can cause long term damage to the lungs, therefore asthma must be monitored and treated. With proper treatment, an asthma sufferer can do most anything those without the condition can do, but without it asthma can affect life at work and home and lead to repeated emergency room visits, even death.

Asthma Contributing Factors
Asthma can be triggered by many common lifestyle factors.
These include, but are not limited to:
80% of people with asthma also have allergies to airborne substances.
The most common food allergies are eggs, milk, peanuts, soy, wheat, fish, and shellfish.
80% of asthmatics will experience asthmatic symptoms during or after strenuous exercise.
89% of people with asthma also suffer from severe heartburn or GERD.
Smoking not only makes a person more likely to develop asthma, but also increases the severity of symptoms on the those with the condition.
Upper-respiratory infections, colds, flu, bronchitis, and sinus infections can all trigger asthmatic symptoms.
Medications, air pollutants, chemicals, weather conditions, and stress can all play a significant role in asthma.
Lifestyle Habits for Asthma Relief
If you or a loved one suffering from asthma, it's important to practice healthy lifestyle habits.
Avoid foods that have triggered reactions in the past, and eat a balanced diet to support good health. Research suggests that asthma rates may be rising because of a lack of fruits and vegetables in diets. Also, people with rich in vitamins C and E, beta-carotene, flavoniods, magnesium, selenium, and omega-3 fatty acids have less chance of developing the condition.
Over-exertion can lead to asthma attack, but regular exercise will help to increase endurance and reduce attacks. Good activities for asthma sufferers involve short periods of enerygy, while activities requiring long periods of strain aren't as easily tolerated. Consult your health care professional to determine what precautions to take and what amount of exercise is safe.
Finding healthy ways to manage stress is especially important for the asthmatic. The arts, yoga, meditation, and quality time with friends and family are all good ways to help manage stress. Experiment with different methods to find those that work best for you.
To quickly and safely relieve asthma symptoms, natural Respitrol is an effective remedy you can easily use in the privacy of your own home.
Respitrol Natural Asthma Medicine is homeopathically OTC formulated to relieve shortness of breath, tightness in chest, wheezing, upper respiratory/bronchial congestion, cough, and mucus congestion. Respitrol is safe for adults and children over age 2.
Additionally, Respitrol goes further than other asthma relievers, and actually promotes balance, recovery and repair. That's because Respitrol works with the body, not against it.
You should still continue to lead a healthy lifestyle while taking Respitrol. If asthma symptoms do not improve or become more severe, consult your health care professional, as this may be an indication of a more serious health condition.
