Patient Profile: The patient is active and athletic. He excels in all sports especially basketball. He had to have some medication before every game. After 30 minutes of play he would often have to stop for a while because it was hard to breathe. And often he would not play a whole quarter.
Treatment: The bouts began tapering off within the first week treatment. He did experience some minor bouts when the weather got very cold and those were immediately stopped by taking the recommended remedies.
