ASTHMA: 1 yea for dairy elimination. My best friend's 4 year old has been having difficulty breathing and the doctor wanted to put him on steroids. A holistic nutritionist suggested he eliminate dairy from his diet and like a miracle the breathing problems are gone.

i agree. high alkaline diet reduces asthma attacks. my son's attacks has not recurred in almost 5 years now since he changed his diet to 80% alkaline reacting food and 20% acid reacting food.

The cure for both Asthma and Allergies is a healthy alkaline based diet. Foods come in 2 groups acidic and alkaline. The more acidic foods we eat the more we are susceptible to diseases like cancer, high blood pressure, tumors, colds and asthma and allergies. I am curing my son who has had chronic, food allergies and asthma. There was one point he could only eat 3 foods, now he eat about 15. I realized that he was allergic to all foods acidic and his food allergies were compounded by his asthma. I instituteed a heavy alkaline based diet and now his allergies are better by 50% and asthma went for chronic to mild.... It's all what we eat... do some research into alkalinity and acidity and I guarantee you, you are what you eat!!!

I am a severe asthmatic with sinusitis. I'm not sure if asthmatics are allergic to dairy or if people who are allergic to dairy become asthmatics, but either way, there is a strong connection. Dairy not only effects my asthma, but my sinuses and allergies, as well.

I forgot to mention preservatives also makes it hard to breath, so get rid of the preservatives in your foods when you have asthma... Get rid of the preservatives and white flour, store bought bread, boxed food and most canned foods.

I started developing asthma about a year and half ago... I couldn't even walk a block without wheezing. On the advice of my mother, I stopped eating all wheat products and have had no trouble breathing ever since.

I've been on a dairy-free diet for less than a week and my breathing is much deeper than ever! As well, my allergies are dissipating. I was hospitalized for asthma earlier this year, and wondered if I was ever going to get my symptoms under control. I cannot adequately express how much better I feel. I'm also going to add ACV to my breakfast and dinner -- I feel that it will also help.

My 2 yr old has asthma and frequently has bronchitis. Stopping dairy in his diet is the only thing that has worked for us. We tried all of the medicines the doctors would give it would only make him better for a short while and sick more frequently.
