Dr. Apaliski provides hard-and-fast guidelines (the "rules of two", four questions that include such easy metrics as whether you need your rescue inhaler more than twice a week). Now I know for sure that my asthma has crossed over into the area where it's considered uncontrolled rather than controlled, and that it's time for me to make that appointment and discuss how to get my asthma back under control.
I have a better idea of what medication and treatment options there are. I know that I need to work with my allergist to create an "action plan" so that I know exactly when to get in touch with him, and what to do, should my asthma worsen again. Because I'm aware of these things, I'll know what to ask about while I'm seeing him.Read more ›
SUGAR and other HIGH GLYCEMIC foods are a major stressors. A diet high in these foods makes the body even more sensitive to the other triggers mentioned by the author. A diet that avoids all grains, starchy vegetables, fruit and fruit juice can often get asthmatics in control of their condition. What must be realized is that when the parasympathetics are dominant there is a significant problem with low blood sugar and hyper-insulinism. The bodies attempts to raise low blood sugar creates a hormone rollercoaster ride exhausting the adrenals and depleting their ability to make the corticoids that would naturally control the asthma. Insulin dumping is pro inflammatory. Nut, seed, and other polyunsaturated vegetable oils are also very pro inflammatory. Read the Inflammation Zone by Barry Sears. .Fried foods are dangerous for asthmatics. Eating more healthy saturated fats like coconut oil can supply enough calories to make up for the reduction in total carbohydrate intake. There are also vitamins and minerals that can reduce a parasympathetic excess according to Guy R. Schenker DC. Pantothenic acid and magnesium ascorbate are two very important ones. Caffeine stresses the adrenals and must be eliminated.
A secondary imbalance common in asthmatics is one that is made worse by sterols found in all dairy foods.Read more ›
