Supporting researchers linking asthma to the bacteria Chlamydia pneumoniae

After years of suffering, a near fatal asthma attack leads to a complete asthma cure

This is where I share my Asthma Story and hopefully stimulate thought and hope for those suffering with Asthma. Especially severe asthma. At the age of 30, I was diagnosed with severe Asthma and ten years later came close to dying when a near fatal asthma attack put me into full respiratory and cardiac arrest.  A neighbor took the above photograph while paramedics administered CPR on me as I lay on our front porch.   After this close call, I needed to try and reclaim my life and learn more about this terrible disease. Even despite repeated claims in the medical community that an asthma cure is impossible. My story, as well as the testimonials of others who got cured, are proof that an asthma cure does exist and that it is possible to be cured of severe asthma.


Introduction to the nasty bacteria Chlamydia pneumoniae

A pharmacist friend of ours then found fascinating new research by Dr. David Hahn in medical journals about the relationship between the bacteria Chlamydia pneumoniae and asthma. These studies indicate this research may help cure asthma in 50% or more of adults and children diagnosed with asthma.  Many have already cured asthma using this research but more studies are needed.


I am not a doctor and offer no medical advice here. Since 2002 I’ve paid for this site with my own funds. I sell nothing and accept no advertising on this website other than a link to Dr. Hahn‘s book of which I receive no financial compensation. This website was created to share the steps I took to become completely cured of my severe asthma and to help others. Now that my asthma is cured, I’ve hiked hundreds of miles of rugged terrain on the Appalachian trail (AT) May 2002 ,May 2005, and May 2012.  And I also kayak, hike and camp in remote areas of the Florida Everglades.  Most importantly…. these hikes and trips are done with no inhalers, no medicines and best of all, no asthma.

I Want My Story To Inspire Others

While viewing the asthma cure research, studies and links you’ll see that there are dozens of researchers around the globe studying the important link between Chlamydia pneumoniae, mycoplasma and asthma. While it doesn’t work for everyone, in many cases a complete asthma cure is possible in adults and children. This website is hosted out of gratitude to support the research of Dr. David Hahn (and others) in understanding more about these life robbing bacteria.

What is Chlamydia pneumoniae

Chlamydia pneumoniae is a complex infectious bacterium that is a major cause of pneumonia. It has a complex life cycle which must infect another cell to reproduce. It travels from an infected person to the lungs of an uninfected person in small droplets.  Eradicating the Chlamydia pneumoniae will cure asthma in most people including adults and children.  Especially those that can strengthen their immune systems while undergoing treatment.   Many people can fight off the infection but there is a select group that develop chronic severe asthma. The bacteria can also live in other tissues within the body and is a strong suspect in causing other chronic ailments like Multiple sclerosis (MS), Als (Lou Gherigs disese), CFS, meningoencephatitis, arthritis, myocarditis, atheosclerosis and coronary heart disease. This bacteria may hold the clue to many chronic diseases….

Steps I Took to Cure Asthma

As more research becomes available, the protocol doctors use to cure asthma has been changing.   What worked for me to cure asthma in 1995 may very well work for you today.   However there are several doctors using stronger doses and multiple antibiotics to address the issue of the difficulty in eradicating the bacteria in some individuals.  For example some people respond well to Azithromycin but others may not and respond better to Doxycyline. One doctor in Ohio prescribes a mixture of both Azithromycin and Doxycyline (for one year) for his patients and claims a 99% success rate in curing asthma of his patients.   This section was originally titled “Steps I took to cure my asthma”. But as I learn more from interactions with readers and doctors, it became obvious this section needed to reflect more current information ….
