What is asthma?
Asthma is a chronic inflammation of the bronchial tubes (airways) that causes swelling and narrowing of the airways. The result is difficulty breathing.

“Jean had been battling with asthma all her life. Her breathing difficulties had stopped once she arrived in Cuba for a 2-week vacation was an indication that it was something in the air directly around her that was causing these symptoms to arise. After only 3 sessions with me did she stop complaining about her breathing difficulties and she was just fine.”
According to Stats Canada, as of 2009, just under 1 million people (ages 12 and over) were suffering from Asthma in Ontario and 2.3 million Canada wide. In fact, since 1977, Asthma rates have doubled.
So what is Asthma? Well, it often ends with wheezing and laboured breathing, but often starts with a cough or tightness in the chest. It can be quite scary when you’re struggling to capture enough air to breathe; especially in extreme life threatening cases! Often people will cough up mucous. An attack may last from minutes to hours.
There are many types of irritants that may trigger an asthma attack:
Exposure to cold air, changes in temperature or weather
Environmental impurities such as chemicals/pollution, smoke, dust, grasses, mold, pollen, animal hair
Medications – such as Aspirin believe it or not!
Infection – may trigger first attacks; can be yeast(Candida), fungal, bacterial or parasitic
Weakened digestive system due to toxin overload
Food – common ones may include milk, eggs, wheat, citrus, food additives, peanuts and foods containing salicylates. To complicate matters, food may produce delayed reactions.
The fact that foods can be an issue is often overlooked as many scratch tests can come back negative for foods. Foods can also weaken the immune system which would make the body more susceptible to a reaction. This brings us to vaccinations. They as well may weaken the immune system over time.
Do you ever feel stilfled or unable to breath for yourself? That can be an connection to asthma. – Take Charge of your own life.
Helpful nutritional support:
Drink plenty of plain water to help keep the lungs moist; especially after an attack
Eliminate all dairy and sugar from the diet
Consume a diet high in raw fruits and vegetables
Take a high quality probiotic
Antioxidants are a great help; such as Vitamin C
B12 and B Complex
Magnesium helps to relax muscles (known as the anti-stress mineral)
Enzymes help to break down food and metabolic waste
Vitamin D for immunity
