  1. It still surprises me, how lot of people do not know about Asthozilax Secrets (just google it), although lots of people completely relief their asthma naturally with this remedy. Thanks to my work buddy who told me about Asthozilax Secrets, I finally eliminated my pain & embarrassment for good with natural ways.

  2. I lost my oldest of 7 children, our 12 year old daughter last year she always had severe asthma as well. We just lost her last year Oct. 21, 2017 from a severe asthma attack in our home. We would have never thought we would have lost her to asthma. Our daughter never wanted to let it stop her she started playing flute in middle school band. Its tough, but you have to keep pushing through for your other loved ones. Praying for Jhevontae's family because I am sure every year that goes by you still miss them, you miss their presence and their voice. Much love The Goss Family
