But recently I went 16 consecutive days without any asthma medication whatsoever.
How did I do it, you ask.
A few months ago, after reading a paper in which I learned that even if you KNOW a pill is fake your brain can still fool you into thinking it helps, I tasked my oldest daughter to transform my Men's Multivitamins into Super Strength Asthma Pills. She did a great job and I take one every day.
A few months later, I'm suddenly going without a rescue inhaler and without my nebulizer machine for the first time in over a decade.
I did nothing else different. That can be the ONLY answer!
Remember, kids: even if a pill is fake, your brain will STILL tell your body that it's real.
