Asthma is a syndrome of reversible bronchial obstruction in hyper-responsive airways mediated by allergy or other trigger factors. Allergic disease represents true asthma while transient wheezing may be caused by factors such as viral infection, aspiration, prematurity and neonatal lung damage and is likely to be outgrown within a few years
Asthma is produced by: constriction of the bronchial tubes and an excessive amount of mucous production in the bronchial tubes. These abnormalities narrow the airways, so the amount of air entering the lungs decreases .
Asthma is caused by an overreaction of the bronchial tubes to the following:
Airborne pollutants smoke and pollens-
Viral infections of the respiratory tract
Sudden changes in environmental temperature
Immune dysfunction which is often triggered by poor diet
Follow the Acid/Alkaline diet Drink lots of water. Avoid colouring and flavourings-found in almost all refines products-cordial, lollies, biscuits…to name a few…
Other congesting foods include-chocolate, ice-ream, potatoes, capsicums, eggplant, melon, dried fruit, bananas and fruit juices. Avoid oranges and sugar!!!!! Be careful with strawberries, grapes, any berries as they are highly sprayed. Wash all fruit and vegetables carefully or buy Organic produce. Eggs and nuts are always in question?
