I was only diagnosed with asthma a few months ago, so all a bit new to me. I'm very lucky in that at the moment it's mild enough that I just have a reliever inhaler and I'm not having to use it every day. I am scared of it getting worse though, in no small part because my uncle is dying from the side effects of the drugs he's been on for it (he's 73 & I do realise the drugs have improved since he started treatment but it's hard to get that logic into my brain!).
At the moment I'm trying to find out as much as possible about any diet/exercise/lifestyle changes I can make that may help improve it (I HATE taking my inhaler, my side effects include getting the shakes, my brain becoming scrambled & losing my balance to the point of falling over. My doctor's solution to this is that I should sit down!). My mum has had great success with herbal treatment but sadly I can't afford that! I've started to eat much more healthily & include more diary & good oils in my diet & I'm hoping to start Tai Chi next month. I've got the book ""Asthma Free Naturally: Everything You Need to Know About Taking Control of Your Asthma"" by Patrick McKeown on order. I was wondering if anyone here had any tips or could recommend any good books, websites, etc I could look at?
Thanks for any help.
