Hey everybody, what’s up and welcome to my youtube channel mermaids real As a child and young adult asthma ruled my life If I laughed too hard, I needed my inhale. Before I worked out, you guessed it. I needed my inhaler. One year, I even rang in the New Year at the ER because I needed a nebulizer treatment Then in 2012, I had a car accident and was dealing with some chronic pain from some injuries. While I was treated by some of the best surgeons that Western medicine could provide, I wasn’t prepared to take prescription opiates for pain management during that time period. After doing a ton of my own research and consulting with holistic doctors and a few functional MD’s, I decided to try a diet that was geared towards managing pain. I discovered that the best diets to manage chronic pain are those that lower Inflammation in the body, so I stuck to an anti-inflammatory diet. Here’s what my diet consisted of: only organic whole foods such as: veggies fruits Grass-fed meat, fish, and eggs. I cut out dairy and gluten because they are notoriously tough to digest. Although I started the diet to help reduce my pain levels, I was shocked by an additional extraordinary benefit. After a couple weeks, my asthma went away completely. I had no idea that would happen once I was free of my asthma. I experimented with reintroducing those foods back into my diet. I found that dairy was my main culprit. Every time I ingested dairy, my asthma symptoms would spike through the roof. To date, It’s been a couple years since I’ve needed my inhaler. I still avoid dairy 100% of the time I avoid gluten about 99% of the time, and I avoid processed foods a majority of the time although I cheat, and I’m addicted to dark chocolate. To explain why I got better on this diet. Here’s some science for you: According to an article on mind-body-green, on how ditching dairy cured my asthma, the reason why the correlation between asthma, and allergies is often missed is because not all food allergies are alike. allergies to nuts often deal with IgE Antibodies and reactions are immediate. However another more common type of allergy deals with IgG antibodies, and reactions can take anywhere from about an hour to days. That’s why sometimes It’s hard to see the correlation. Hillman, the author of that article, says that he cured his asthma when he discovered he had a delayed reaction to dairy. Once he completely gave up dairy, his asthma disappeared forever. Medical doctor and author Mark Hyman writes, asthma is a huge problem it affects 25 million Americans, and it’s increasing every day Why you might ask? For a number of reasons. He says increasing environmental toxins, increasing pollution, increases in food sensitivities and gut problems, food additives and dyes, increasing use of antibiotics and medications, and an increasing consumption of Franken- foods, which have altered proteins and strange ingredients. All these can trigger asthma So how can you cure your asthma according to Hyman? He says you should focus on finding the root cause of asthma for you Not just treating the symptoms. Get rid of the bad stuff starting with foods that might be a problem. For many its gluten and dairy.. for others, it can be common allergies such as eggs or nuts. Then put in the good things. Take in the types of foods and vitamins that the body needs in order to heal. If you’d like a more In-depth video on how you can look to cure your asthma, I’d be happy to make something about it.
