I developed asthma after moving into an old house with (I suspect) lots of dust and mold. I've had a history of allergies (food and environmental).
When we close up the house for winter, life became miserable for me with nightly asthma attacks (when the heat came on...we have radiators, not force air).
I tried everything for the asthma (and spent lots of money on lots of supplements/herbs,etc). Vitamin C (powdered, buffered) helps some, as well as relaxation exercises during an attack. But, nothing helped to prevent them, until I did a cleansing fast.
I no longer have the asthma problem, since I did a seven-day fast. I followed a the fast in Daniel Reid's book "The Tao of Health Sex and Longevity." This was before I found this website.
I also find that avoiding wheat, and starchy foods (and needless to say sugar) is paramount to an asthma free life.
Hope this helps!
