The Importance of Diet

External strategies work well to reduce the factors that trigger allergies, asthma and other breathing problems, but none of them cure the illness. Neither do standard prescription drugs, for their function is to suppress symptoms, not correct causes.

In addition to using the tactics described above, you can treat respiratory illness from the inside out, repairing and improving the immune system so that everyday exposure to low levels of environmental toxins doesn't wreak havoc on the lungs. This same approach helps prevent colds, flu, bronchitis, asthma attacks, hay fever symptoms and sinus congestion. In fact, many experts claim that the true cause of hay fever isn't pollen or dust mites or animal dander at all; it's the human body that interprets these substances as dangerous intruders and activates the immune system to repel them. Correcting this misinterpretation can be done with herbs and diet.
