I just wondered if any of you had ever found that food or drink improves asthma symptoms (or makes them worse?). I'm not talking about allergies here. My GP told me to avoid cooking with chilli/spices/garlic and other strongly scented or flavoured foods as it will irritate my airways. I adore all of this type of food, and I've never noticed they make a huge difference (apart from when I was using a food processor on 20 red chillis, that hurt).
I have read that caffiene helps asthma symptoms, and I have noticed that symptoms improve after my morning latte, but I don't know if that's because of the caffiene, or if it is simply that my symptoms are improving as they tend to do after I've been out of bed a while.
Has anyone else found any food or drink beneficial?
