Asthma

May be a bit of a long shot here. I have had asthma for a very long time, not bad but just mild dificulty breathing on accasion which can be triggered by a few things from dust, animals, and even swallowing a drink the wrong way.
 
I can go days without using an inhaler and when I do use it I smtimes wonder how much is simply havit formed over many years. Recently I've been tring to ween myself off them completly and seem to have been doing quite well. I've searched the net and there is a whole host of suggested remedies from breathing exercises, salt inhalers, and something I didn't foow about enzymes!
 
So as aways I turn to the knowledgable chaps on MT for advice.
 
My question is does anyone have asthma and have they controled or treated it with a method other than their inhaler, be it breathing techniques, supplements, otc drugs, foods, etc.
 
Many thanks.

    I know a few people who swear by eating lots of fruit.
    Not enitrely sure how it affects it, but I eat lots of fruit. I still use my preventer twice a day, but my asthma is a bit different anyway.

    Thanks for the response. I think the fruit thing may be linked to Vitamin A which I've read is helpful in some way. Thereis a lot of vitamin A in apples apparently. I eat about five apples a day.

    There's a big trial here about to take place looking at Vitamin D supplementation and asthma. I think it's building on work that suggests that Vitamin D benefits the immune system.

    Ill prob get flamed for giving this advice but taking eph every day will deffinately sort your asthma out even at a low dose, if you look into it you will see that the treatment of bronchil disorders was its original use. Give it a go buddy you will notice a massive improvement straight away.

    Thanks for that JK. It will be interesting to see what comes out of that.

    Thanks for that mate. I have in fact used eph quite a bit in the past. It just not always so easy to get hold of. Thinking about it, isn't there something you can get otc called 'Chesteze' or something which contains eph? I could be wrong.

    I find breathing exercises help me most (yeah, I know that sounds really obvious!) - but I find that as soon as I start wheezing, i get really conscious of it and that in turn then makes the wheezing worse as a lot of it is anxiety. It definitely helps to concentrate on keeping your breathing regular and deep and smooth once you feel the chest tightening.

    I can definately relate to that. Often when I start feeling a bit wheezy, if I can distract myself and put it out of my mind, I'll realise after a while that its simply gone away.
     
    I bought some Chesteze on Saturday and had one yesterday and one this morning. I haven't yet had to use my inhaler.

    I thought that vitamins A & D were fat soluble - and since apples are mostly carbs and water they can't contain either of these vitamins.

    You could well be right. I've never actually looked into it.

    Just looked it up and there are small amounts of vitamin A in apples.

    Thats definitely a factor, theres certain places I know I cant go at certain times of year or in certain weather.
    I can walk all day in the beacons and not get out of breath, or I can walk for 2 hours in London and sound like I have smoked 100 Woodbines.
