3 year old with asthma - should I give royal jelly?

by Dora Rebola
(Gent, Belgium)

I have heard that 5 drops a day of royal jelly in the breakfast of a child that is developing asthma can cure it. I have a daughter with 3 years old and I use ventolin when I see she is having trouble breathing. Every time she has a cold it develops quickly to short breathing.
But I have been searching and I see there is a lot of contratictory info. Although it is recommended to asthma, is also unrecommended saying that can even cause death.
I would like to know more.

Hi Dora,
Whenever you are dealing with asthma and other respiratory issues, you do need to be careful with bee products such as royal jelly or bee pollen when introducing them into one's system. The risk is always some sort of extreme allergy, which are rare, but can occur. They do tend to occur more frequently in those with respiratory issues such as asthma. As for whether or not royal jelly can cure asthma - this is not something I've encountered. Royal jelly does have many health benefits and it might be worth a try with your daughter. If you do decide to try, start out with extremely tiny amounts of royal jelly and only increase the dose in tiny increments if she shows no signs of reaction. As always, be sure to tell your doctor what you are giving her.

Bee healthy,
Angela

I wouldn't fool around with my 3 year old's asthma. Ask a doctor.

I, too, have heard to take Royal Jelly for asthma, but never ever to take it for asthma, sometimes in the same sentence, just like that.

I was going to ask my doctor, and I will, but today I decided to try the Royal Jelly before i get to see him. I am 51, though, not 3. From everything I've read, you have to be very careful with anyone under 21. Until then, our bodies are still developing, and therefore, extremely vulnerable to missteps.
