Pediatric Asthma Healing Story

When I brought my son to Dr. Gillespie, I really didn’t know what to expect. My sisters had already taken several of their children to him for many different conditions. They had tried several times to convince me to take my son. I never thought that brain therapy would actually completely correct his asthma. He had it from infancy, and his doctors kept telling me that he would “outgrow” it as he got older. The crazy part was that instead of “outgrowing” his asthma at nine years of age, he was getting worse. I felt very frustrated and desperate.

Classically, he would start in the fall with croup, snowball into a bad cold, and end up as asthma, pneumonia, and a lot of medicine. This cycle would last until the spring. I would stay up all night with him initially to make sure he was breathing well, and he would then miss several days of school. Finally, I decided that I had enough of this loop and took my sister’s advice.

I often thank God for making that appointment. From the first visit of CFT until the present day almost three years later, my son has not taken any asthma medication. He has had several colds, but never the asthma that had always followed. His pediatrician even confirmed that it was gone after he completed CFT.

I can’t begin to tell you how this approach has changed our lives. Today, he is an athletic 12-year-old boy. He plays soccer, baseball, basketball, and even made it to the regional finals for track. This would have never happened without CFT. Before the treatment he would have to come off the soccer field winded several times in a game. Today, he can run longer and faster than most of the players on his team. I was so taken with this work that I became trained and now successfully do CFT for other asthmatic children.
