Podcast Intro:

The problem with the Western Medical model is when you have asthma, it's super scary because you can't breathe. We never actually get to the root of the problem of what is causing asthma. All we know is that it is a chronic inflammatory disease. 

In this episode, we will be talking about asthma. We will be exploring the views of modern culture on asthma and the root of the disease. Cate will also share breathing exercises that will help expand your airways. Stay tuned.

What you’ll get out of tuning in:

  • What do you need to understand about asthma?
  • What’s the problem with the Western medical model right now?
  • How can intermittent fasting help someone with inflammation?
  • What is the frequency of shifting parasympathetic?
  • Why is breathing through your nostrils important?



  • Cate talks about the growing issue of chronic inflammatory diseases
  • Cate shares breathing exercises
  • Cate tells a story about chronic inflammation during the 1900s

  • [01:12] “In modern culture, we get a scary diagnosis like asthma and then we get medication for that, which is chemical medication. In general, it's created by chemistry in the lab. And the issue is that if we don't understand the underlying cause. We never get to the root of the problem of what is causing allergies, asthma, or autoimmune conditions. If we don't get to the root of the issue, then what happens is that issues stack on top of each other.” 
  • [07:23] “Asthma is a chronic inflammatory disease. Trying to rewrite our program thinking asthma is something separate from chronic inflammation will remodel the pathways. It is important to understand that asthmatic airway are also characterized by remodeling a term used to define complex morphologic changes involving all the structures of the bronchial wall.”
  • [14:13] “Bacteria, viruses, archaea, and fungi are there for the functionality of your lung tissue. They're not human DNA cells. They're bacterial and viral cells. When the microbiome of your lungs is happy and healthy, you're not inflamed. They actually eat the inflammation the microbes actually eat the viruses actually eat the inflammation.”
  • [17:32] “When we do the easy things that make life harder in the long run that increases chronic inflammation.”
