Asthma can affect anyone at any age. Asthma is a condition in which a person’s airway becomes inflamed and swells. This causes extra mucus to produce and it becomes difficult to breathe. It can also cause wheezing, chest pain or a cough. Although there is no specific cure for those who suffer from asthma, there are things you can do to help reduce your symptoms. Cutting out dairy can be a key change to really make a difference in episodes. Dairy can cause chronic inflammation and worsen symptoms.
Studies have shown that those who suffer from asthma have seen significant improvement in reduction of symptoms when cutting out dairy. Yes that means saying good bye to nachos, ice cream, milk and grilled cheese sandwiches. Please note that you will not see the changes happen overnight, it may take a few months for you to see a difference in your symptoms. There are many different substitutions you can make instead of having dairy such as using coconut or almond milk instead. There are even many ice creams you can try that are dairy free.
If you continue to have symptoms you may want to try other natural or holistic measure to help with asthma. Did you know that chiropractic can help with reductions of symptoms? San Diego Chiropractors agree getting adjusted on a regular basis helps to keep inflammation levels low and the nerves uninterrupted. My San Diego Chiropractor has been able to help with reduction of my asthma as well as work on my sinuses to help with drainage.
Doing a detox can also help with lowering inflammation as well as speaking to a nutritionist to find out which other foods should be taken out of your diet. Adding in to your daily regimen supplements that boost your immune system can also help with asthma. Try finding supplements that contain elderberry, echinacea and green tea.
