Diet in Asthma

Asthma is a chronic recurrent respiratory disease with inflammation of bronchial tubes.

Homeopathy has a very good scope in the treatment of asthma. If we combine homeopathic treatment along with some dietary guidelines, we can expect really good results. So a diet for asthma patients is very important.

Best diet in asthma

Best foods for asthma patients:

  • Fruits: Fruits contain a lot of antioxidants and beta carotene. Research has shown that those children who ate a lot of fruits throughout their childhood had a lower risk of developing asthma later in life.
  • Fruits with a high content of Vitamin C and E just like kiwi, oranges etc. reduce the lung swelling and inflammation.
  • Increase intake of green leafy vegetables: Fresh vegetables make a good diet for asthma patients. They contain a high amount of Vitamins and flavonoids which destroy the free radicals in the body. Free radicals are the toxins in the body which aggravate the asthmatic conditions.
  • Vitamin D: It is found that people with asthma usually have low Vitamin D levels. So milk, eggs, fish like salmon must be in the regular diet for asthma patients.
  • Spending time under the sun for a few minutes can increase the level of Vitamin D. which in turn has a good effect on asthmatics.
  • Maintain a healthy weight: Obesity and asthma attacks have a direct link between them. It is found that attacks of asthma significantly reduce when the patient maintains healthy and normal weight. The frequency of asthma increases with the weight gain.

Foods to be avoided in Asthma:

  • Reduce salt intake: High intake of salt is known to increase asthma attacks in children. So as far as possible, children should be discouraged to eat packed salty snacks and packaged foods.  Moreover, research has shown that reduction in salt intake has a positive effect on exercise induced asthma.
  • Monosodium glutamate (MSG): This is found in a plenty of amount in Chinese foods and packaged and processed foods. MSG is known to trigger the asthma attacks. So it should be kept at bay.
  • Sulphites: Sulphites are used as preservatives. They are known to aggravate asthma. Sulphites are found in wine, dried foods, pickles, frozen shrimps and even the fresh shrimps. So this food item should be avoided by the asthmatics.Life Force Homeopathy
