I don't have asthma...
Posted by Reviewer2550937 on Feb 11, 2011
but I've had swollen tonsils and sore throat for years. I took phytocort as a last ditch attempt against a cold I felt I was getting. I didn't catch the cold and felt so good that i stayed on them. Several weeks later it dawned on me that my tonsils are fine - totally fine, no drainage or anything, and no sore throat. I am gluten-intolerant and very strict with my diet but it seems my body reacts to any type of grain and often to other foods almost as if they do contain gluten. I've struggled with this for some years and its always worse when I'm tired or run down. I can only guess that phytoCort in some ways balances my body, whether its the immune system or simply the gut lining, so that its not so reactive. Either way its the best I've felt in some years and I intend to stay on Phytocort. One small note which may or may be important to anyone out there struggling with a similar issue., I found the effect of phytocort was intensified (for me) when combined with a gluten-enzyme digestive and real vitamin c. I've taken it with and without and it definitely intensifies the benefit by combining it with the above. best
Takes the place of steroids without the side effects

My Doctor suggested this, in place of the steroids he prescribed for my emphysema which I refused to take. This works just as well and absolutely no side effects. I'm convinced!

My spouse is a severe asthmatic. PhytoCort is an immense help to him. He takes several prescription medications, too.
So far, so good...

Has been useful for inflammatory condition affecting the lungs and potentially reducing steroid dosage. Based, I believe, on cutting edge research. The jury is still out though regarding long term benefits.

I think the product has helped my breathing and less dependency on prescription drugs.
Contains Shellfish and Egg! In a product made for allergy sufferers?!
Posted by 5387788587363946406 on May 06, 2016
This information is not disclosed in the product description here on iHerb, but only in fine print on the back of the label. Only realized once I ordered it. "Other ingredients: Hydroxypropyl methyl-cellulose, L-Leucine. Contains Egg and Shellfish (shrimp, crab and lobster)." So if you're allergic to shellfish - many of us are - or are dedicated to a vegan diet - AVOID! I've decided to take it anyway as I'm desperate to alleviate my asthma. But with some trepidation. UPDATE: I TOOK THIS PRODUCT FOR 2 DAYS. MY ASTHMA GOT WORSE! I WOKE UP FEELING EXHAUSTED. BRAIN FOG. HEADACHES. EMPTIED THE REMAINING CAPSULES INTO THE FIREPLACE THIS MORNING. WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY.

excellent relief from wheezing

I have a rare condition called eosonophillic pneumonia. It leads to a high eosonophils count in the lungs leading to inflammation, and many of the symptoms of asthma. I was put onto prednisone and struggled hard to gEt off it. After using this for 3 weeks I am off that terrible drug totally and no symptoms at all! I breathe normally at last! I still use a puffer with seretide and ventolin but it is so much better. ThaNks!!?
