Have asthma? Here’s how I manage it

 

ASTHMA

Breathe...

Have you ever seen anyone have an asthma attack? Not a pretty sight! Throughout my life I have had my few share of attacks and it is not a nice feeling either, let me tell you.

People often ask me what it feels like. It feels like you are being asphyxiated slowly. If I speak nonchalantly about it, it is because I am by now kind of  used to them.

No one seems to know why or how, but more and more people are developing allergies and asthma. In Ireland almost half a million people suffer from some form of it.

Since I was a baby I’ve been prescribed steroid injections, pills, and all sorts of highly chemicalised inhalers. Some of these have worked to a certain extent and for a while. Some probably did me more harm than good.

I never cared about an immediate or short term remedy anyway. Even though, in the past, if I hadn’t had one available I’d probably be dead by now.

I always wanted to know why, and how, and natural ways to make myself better. But no one ever  answered my questions.

No one knows my body like I do, and by listening to my body and doing a lot of research, I have finally found out what works best for me.

This is not to say that everyone’s condition is the same, as it is not. Asthma seems to have a variety of causes, from food allergies, to lifestyle changes, to viral infections… and a range of severity levels.

However, with the help of some of the most noted nutrition experts in the world, I have come to understand that ultimately it all seems to stem from an immune system deficiency.

It was when I got a blood analysis done by world renowned nutritionist Phil Richards that It all started to make sense to me. By looking at my live and dry blood cells, he was able to tell me allergies and deficiencies I have.

I have always known that peanuts give me asthma. But it turns out all nuts do.

Sugar, wheat, white flour, red wine, highly processed foods and chemicalised toiletries and cleaning products… in fact pretty much everything that is bad for me I am allergic to. I am quite lucky in that way.

Dust,  dust mites, pollen, cat fur, cold and damp weather… shall I go on?

I avoid these and I am ok-ish.

But what makes the real difference for me?

 

– I religiously take good quality vitamins, minerals, and fish oils daily.

– I drink alkalized water throughout the day and eat highly alkalizing foods.

– I do anaerobic exercise that really gets me out of breath at least 3 times a week. I do this outdoors as the fresh air and vitamin D I get from the sun (even in winter) helps too.

– I listen to hypnotic cd’s to help me relax when I get wheezy.

 

Everyone is different and we all deal with life in different ways too. I like to take control of it and I wanted to show you how I do this regarding asthma.

Please feel free to post your comments and any questions you may have.
