[Music] 20 patients with allergic eczema were placed on a vegetarian diet for two months and their disease scores covering both objective and subjective science and symptoms were cut in half similar to AC using one of our most powerful drugs the drug worked quicker within about two weeks but since side effects may include kidney failure and cancer the drug is considered the class 1 carcinogen the dietary option may be preferable but this was no ordinary vegetarian diet this was an inpatient studies and extremely calorically restricted diet they’re practically half fasting so we don’t know which component was responsible for the therapeutic effect what about using a more conventional plant based diet against a different allergic disease asthma in Sweden there’s an active health movement the claim that a vegan diet could improve or cure asthma bold claim so in order to test this a skeptical group of orthopedic surgeons at the University Hospital followed a series of patients who were treated with a vegan regiment for one year patients participants had to be willing to go completely plant-based and they had to have physician verified asthma of at least a year’s duration that wasn’t getting better or even getting worse despite the best medical therapies available they found quite a sick group to fall 35 patients long established hospital verified bronchial asthma for an average duration of a dozen years of the 35 patients 20 had been admitted to the hospital for acute asthmatic attacks during the last two years of these one patient had received acute infusion therapy at old twenty-three times during the period which like emergency and a venous another patient claimed had been brought to the hospital hundred times during his disease and whenever you take occasion had evidently required such treatments one patient even had a cardiac arrest during an asthma attack and be brought back to life on a ventilator so we’re talking some pretty serious cases there on up to eight different asthma medications when they started they were each on an average of four and a half drugs is still not getting 22:35 we’re constantly using courtesans one of her most powerful steroids used in severe cases so basically fairly advanced cases the disease but more severe than the vegan practitioners were used to still how’d they do eleven could not stick to the diet for a year but of the 24 that did 71% reported improvement at four months ninety-two percent at one year and these were folks that not improved at all over the previous year before changing their diet concurrently with this improvement the patients who greatly reduced their consumption of medicine four completely given up their medication altogether and only two weren’t able to at least drop their dose they went from four and a half drugs down to 1.2 and some were able to get off cortisone some said that their improvement was so considerable they felt like they had a new life one nurse had difficulty at work because most of her co-workers were smokers but after the year she can withstand the secondhand smoke without getting an attack as well as tolerating other asthma triggers others report the same thing whereas previously they can only live in a clean environment and felt more or less isolated in their homes they can now stay out without getting asthma attacks and it wasn’t just subjective improvements there was a significant improvement a number of clinical variables including most importantly measures of lung function vital capacity forks forced expiratory volume as well as physical working capacity as well as a significant drop in sed rate and IgE which are algae associate bandha body’s bottom line I started out with 35 patient who had suffered from severe asthma for an average of 12 years all receiving long-term medication 20 including cortisone were subjected to vegan food for a year in almost all cases medication was withdrawn or drastically reduced there is a significant decrease in asthma symptoms despite the improved lung function tests and lab bias the placebo effect obviously can’t be discounted since there is no blind and control group but the nice thing about a healthy diet is that there are only good side effects like their cholesterol significantly improved their blood pressures got better they lost 18 pounds so and from a medical and boy I figure why not give it a try [Music] you
