Causes of Asthma:
• Poor diet
• Dairy most common dietary trigger (ditch dairy!)
• Dehydration can exacerbate
• GI health contributes
• Overstimulation of immune system ‐ allergies, chronic viral or bacterial infections
• Overuse of antibiotics – destroys beneficial bacteria, compromises immune system
• Excess weight contributes to increased inflammation

Effective Treatment Options:

• Eliminate dairy (you will not miss it, I promise!)

• Use salt as a natural antihistamine
• Repair GI tract with probiotics

Triggers other than Dairy:
• Medications such as aspirin, nonsteroidal anti‐inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and beta‐blockers
