Recent Asthma Studies

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

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.

Preventing Allergies and Asthma

Monday, January 3rd, 2005

Two recent studies reveal the power of preventive medicine in reducing the risk of two common and serious conditions: allergies and asthma. While billions are spent annually on prescription and over-the-counter medications to treat these conditions, a few simple choices could mean the difference between health and chronic disease.

A study published in the journal Infection & Immunity suggests that changes in the normal combination of different healthy bacteria that live in the digestive tract can significantly increase the risk of both allergies and asthma. There are several types of bacteria that are beneficial for the health, the two most prominent being L. acidophilus and L. bifidus.

While these bacteria are important for the health of the digestive system and the immune system, there are many aspects of modern life that deplete these bacteria: stress, alcohol, sugar, medications, processed foods, coffee and others. Unfortunately, once the balance of bacteria is upset, it is difficult to get the healthy bacteria re-established. (more…)
