Diet change may benefit asthma patients
Washington: An alteration in dietary habits can be helpful in bringing relief to those suffering from asthma or allergies.
Spring, with its warmer weather could be an unpleasant time for many allergy and asthma sufferers. But according to Fred Pescatore, the acclaimed author of “The Allergy & Asthma Cure” and the bestselling “The Hamptons Diet”, it doesn’t have to be that way.
“If you or someone you love has had to deal with sneezing, itchy eyes, breathlessness, rashes, and other symptoms this time of year, unbalanced eating habits may be to blame,” said Pescatore.
“Proper nutrition can make a dramatic difference. With insights into diet that I have compiled over the years, I have been able to rid or reduce many of my patients’ use of multiple medications for asthma and allergy. There’s no need for anyone to stay indoors or feel miserable for an entire season due to these conditions.” he added.
According to Pescatore, in addition to modifications in diet, certain nutritional supplements can help allergy and asthma sufferers. Specifically, vitamin D3 can decrease inflammation; Vitamin C can help in combating the added stress to our bodies caused by allergies, and Vitamin A can help in ridding the body of mucus. Additionally, Vitamin B12 stabilizes the imbalance of bacteria that occurs in the gut of most allergy sufferers.
Additionally, there are certain substances like Pantethine that work as a natural steroid that produces a helpful enzyme. Quercetin is one of nature’s best antihistamines, and magnesium helps the body to dispose off the toxins we consume daily that helps one to breathe more easily.
