Diet Advice to help improve allergies and asthma
this is from Dr Joel Fuhrmans website- this stuff has started to help me. He is by no means the only source of this sort of advice, but I have found this very helpful during my 4 year struggle with skin allergies.
"Allergies and Asthma improve and can even disappear over time
A significant number of medical investigations have uncovered that, just like other diseases, people develop asthma and allergies for reasons. Asthma and allergies have been linked to nutritional factors:
* Low levels of fresh fruits and flavonoids[iii]
* Fried foods, protein-rich and fat-rich foods of animal origin[iv]
* Low blood levels of fruit and vegetable derived antioxidants[v]
* Dietary fatty acid imbalance—an excess of omega-6 over omega-3 fats[vi]
* Increased intake of high saturated fat foods (meat, cheese and butter)[vii]
* Bread and butter consumption, lower vegetable intake [viii]
My experience in working with hundreds of patients attempting to resolve asthma and allergies has been rewarding. The asthmatics gradually improve, and the allergic patients slowly reduce the severity of their allergies and many become entirely non-allergic. Many patients who had strong allergies to cats, dust mites and pollen, no longer have these sensitivities. From a combination of dietary advice and a limited amount of nutritional supplements, most people start to improve their condition in a few months. I have even had patients who surprisingly continued to be allergic a year late,r and then after about 20 months following my recommendations, their allergies faded away. Recoveries are the rule and not the exception."
