From Prevention.com “Food For What Ails You”: “Harvard University researchers found that those taking the most vitamin E in their diets were 47% less likely to have asthma than those getting the least. Vitamin E is found in almonds, sunflower seeds, whole grain cereals, spinach and kale. (Yea Kale!) Also “those getting the most selenium in their diets were five times less likely to have asthma than those getting the least. ” “One Brazil nut contains 120 mcg.” Foods recommended to steer clear of: “egg, milk, peanuts, salt, seafood, soy products, wheat, corn oils, safflower oils, soy oils, and sunflower oils.”
I suffered for years from asthma then it totally disappeared. Other than being surprised, I didn’t bother to question why it disappeared. Now, reading up on health and fitness, I wonder if my asthma was ‘cured’ when I put aside, sugary and processed foods and began to eat fresh, healthy foods. It’s hard to even remember the days of huffing and puffing as I easily hike in areas like beautiful Mt. Rainier, Washington.
