My name is Bimini Colt. Since childhood, I've been prone to asthma and recurrent chest infections. It is getting worse as I am getting older, and am starting to resist antibiotics more and more.This means I am at risk of death, because the treatments won't work anymore, and at 6-8 chest infections a year, I'm running out of time. I have actually fractured ribs just from the coughing.Doctors are at a loss, and my biggest hope resides in an intensive 3 week treatment in a salt mine in Poland. The benefits of salt therapy have been known since the 1800s. It's an incredibly well developed treatment program, including exercises designed with my own particular lungs in mind, salt mist inhalations, and having to descend through the mine daily, which strengthens the lungs as you pass from the normal air into air with heavy salt concentrations. 6.5 hours of treatments per day, plus 3 meals a day and hotel are included in the cost.
It is alot of money, but this therapy is well developed and has been around for hundreds of years, and the fact that there are medical doctors,nurses and physiotherapists all looking after you and evaluating you constantly makes me feel very safe. It essentially rebuilds the lungs, so a huge decrease in amount of lung infections and asthma attacks can be expected, as can a general increase in fitness, because of group physio.
Breathing is the most basic and essential of all functions, please consider giving, so that I may breathe easier and live the life I was meant to live.
