Treating the CAUSES of asthma

October 27, 2013

I am posting here a response to an article about asthma which was describing how to treat asthma—I really like this response.

As a Kinesiologist I test for causes rather than ‘treating’ symptoms.   Extrinsic asthma is mainly due to allergens. Resulting immune reactions release inflammatory compounds that cause spasms of the bronchial tubes. Allergy is a likely cause of asthma in about 90 per cent of children with asthma and about 50 per cent of affected adults. One common cause of a chronic inflammatory setting is the presence of hidden food allergies. ‘Hidden’ means that people are not aware of the allergy because usually the body does not react to an allergenic food to which it is exposed every day. Most asthmatics have been shown to have such hidden food allergies. The most common foods to which asthmatics react are cows’ milk and cheese, gluten, eggs, nuts, and seafood. Intrinsic asthma is not due to allergies, and may come from microbial infestations, such as Candida albicans, emotional factors, and mucus congestion from other causes.
