Living with asthma? Eat more fruits and veggies to control your symptoms

The benefits of eating a healthful diet are numerous, ranging from a lower cancer risk to reduced weight and better cardiometabolic health, a better mood, and improved cognition. Basically, a healthy diet is mostly composed of a high intake of fruit, vegetables and fiber. Fruits and veggies are loaded with essential nutrients that offer a range of health benefits.

“These have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties and are elements in a healthy diet that potentially lower symptoms,” said lead researcher Roland Andrianasolo, from University of Paris 13 in France. “In contrast, the least healthy diets include high consumption of meat, salt, and sugar, and these are elements with pro-inflammatory capacities that may potentially worsen symptoms of asthma,” he added.

For the study, the team analysed data from 34,776 adults. The results showed that for men with asthma who followed to healthy diets were 60 percent less likely to have poorly controlled symptoms. Similarly, the likelihood of poorly controlled symptoms was reduced by 27 percent in women who ate healthfully.

Can asthma be cured with a lung transplant?

lol I have asthma, but obviously I am not planning on having one, but I was just wondering...What do you think? Is it possible?? Maybe by transplanting both?? XD

Well, you would have to transplant both lungs and a significant portion of the respiratory tract, but yes, it is certainly possible.

THAT SAID, you would probably get essentially the same therapeutic effects by simply taking the medication

No, asthma is a disease of the alveoli not of the lungs.

Transplanted organs generally don't last too long - plus the operation is incredibly risky, so even if it were possible I don't think it'd be worth it.

Can Asthma be (cured OR controlled) by heating surrounding air?

My mother, 88 years old, got asthma for the past 2 years. She is affected by cold weather. Can it be cured (or controlled) by keeping the room warm, as it will help to inhale warm air ?

Air purifiers helped me rid of my asthma. Set one in your room and turn it on when you got to bed.

As you said she is affected by the cold, keeping her warm will help a great deal.
