Asthma is one of the leading causes of prescription use by individuals under 21 years old. Lung health indicates how the overall body is functioning. Chronic stress weakens the immune system and adrenal gland function. The adrenal glands create cortisone, which reduces inflammation. I typically see asthma reactions in patients who are stressed and consume large amounts of dairy and sugar. Patients who have poor posture as a result of technology and neck displacement may also suffer breathing challenges. Citrus can also trigger an asthmatic reaction.
Chiropractic adjustments have a positive impact. Limit or eliminate sugar, dairy, and peanut butter. Instead use unsweetened coconut milk and unsweetened almond butter.
