Allergies and Inflammation
Asthma is common disorder that many patients suffer from which is caused by allergies and inflammation. Many patients are taking multiple medications in order to control the symptoms of asthma. In essence, asthma is a condition of inflammation. However, in order to treat asthma, we must look further to see the cause of the inflammation.
Today, there is a rise in the number of children who are diagnosed with asthma. At its core, asthma occurs when cells become too inflamed and stressed for oxygen. Oftentimes, dietary changes are recommended, but there are also particular elements of a diet that make asthma worse. Therefore, toxicity is the number one player.
Removing The Cause
Some foods that are causing asthma may even be considered healthy. In other countries where healthcare is hard to find, it is very difficult to find an individual with asthma. If we are removing the cause of the inflammation (asthma), which may be a particular dietary item, the body is able to heal itself from the toxicity (cause). In order to figure out what the cause is, the right types of testing must be completed in order to bring to light the various inflammatory and toxic causes.
