Asthma is one of the most common diseases of the modern age.
Its cause is an improper functioning immune system. In most cases, asthma is associated with allergies. When the allergen is present in the environment, the immune system reacts to it and causes an inflammatory reaction in the lungs.
Typical allergens are mold, dust mites, dust, food, medicines, pollens, animals and chemicals. Conventional medicine offers a variety of drugs, which help control asthma, but have an adverse effect on health. However, you can prevent asthma and in a natural way.
As we know, in our digestive tract, on the skin, nose, ears, eyes, nails, lungs have a colony of “good” microbes that perform many important functions. One of their duties is to protect us from pathogenic microorganisms. When the normal flora are destroyed, it can appear a whole host of health problems – such as asthma, allergies, leaky gut syndrome, and the growth of Candida, constipation, diarrhea, chronic infections and poor absorption of nutrients.
Eating unhealthy processed foods belongs to the most common allergens. Many additives and preservatives such as bisulfite, potassium metabisulfite and sulfur dioxide can cause severe asthma attacks. Pasteurized dairy, gluten grains, sugar, soybeans and peanuts are foods that stimulate inflammation and contribute to the formation of excess mucus in the body. Avoid them. Anti-inflammatory foods help to coordinate the work of our immune system and suppress inflammation.
List of foods anti-inflammatory action is long, among them are:
- Sweet potato
- Olive oil
- Apple cider vinegar
- Flax seeds, pumpkin seeds and canola
- Green tea
- Shiitake mushrooms
- Green leafy vegetables
- Red and white onions
Is essential to maintain the cleanliness of the home with the help of natural, organic cleaning products that do not contain allergens. Avoid carpets cleaned regularly and vacuum the house. Use only high-quality filters for vacuum cleaners. Ensure that the walls, especially in the bathroom, do not appear black fungus, which are very harmful for people suffering from allergies. Some natural products – for example, grapefruit seed extract, have anti-fungal properties, so you can use them to clean the home of fungi.
