Recent Asthma Studies

About 20 million adults in the US have been diagnosed with asthma, and another 9 million children under the age of 18 have gotten the diagnosis. If anything could cut the risk of an asthma attack in half, that should be big news. And that’s exactly what a recent study found.

A study involving almost 55,000 women in France found that asthma attacks were almost twice as likely to occur when the women ate a “Western” diet. For this study, a Western diet meant eating cured meats, pizza, desserts, etc., the kinds of foods that make up a “standard American diet.” Women eating this type of diet were 79% more likely to have asthma attacks than women eating diets high in fruits and vegetables.

At Nature Cures Clinic we find that not just asthma, but a whole range of other symptoms and conditions resolve once people switch to a healthy diet. This means not simply eating more fruits and vegetables, but also identifying and eliminating food allergens. If you are interested in working with a naturopathic physician to develop a diet plan that is right for you, call our clinic at 503-287-4970 or send us an email at info@naturecuresclinic.com.
