Best Diet for Asthma

In order to help your asthma you need to do everything possible to reduced inflammation in the body. The best way to do this is with diet. Use the following strategies in your diet to help you keep asthma attacks to a minimum:

  1. Eat a diet consisting primarily of fresh fruits and vegetables, nuts, oat meal, brown, rice, and whole grains. The diet should be relatively high in protein, low in carbohydrates, and contain no sugar.
  2. Include garlic and onions in your diet. These foods contain quercetin and mustard oils, which have been shown to inhibit an enzyme that aids in releasing inflammatory chemicals.
  3. Include “green drinks” in your program. Kyo-Green from Wakunaga is excellent. Take it three times a day, one-half hour before meals.
  4. Avoid gas-producing foods, such as beans, brassicas (broccoli, cauliflower, and cabbage) and large amounts of bran. Gas can irritate an asthmatic condition by putting pressure on the diaphragm.
  5. Do not eat ice cream or drink extremely cold liquids. Cold can shock the bronchial tubes into spasms.
  6. Use a juice fast, a fast using distilled water and lemon juice, or a combination of both for three days each month to help rid the body of toxins and mucus.
  7. Eat lightly-a large meal can cause shortness of breath by making the stomach put pressure on the diaphragm.
