Dairy is one of the most common causes of asthma. People with asthma should avoid milk and other dairy products because they promote mucus production in the lungs, which triggers asthma attacks. Avoid these other mucus-producing foods.

2. Boost your immune system, and clean up the gut.

Our immune system is trained in the gut. When we have good bacteria, they actually suppress inflammation, allergies, autoimmune diseases and asthma. Bad bacteria promote those problems. Eating right helps us clean out the bad bacteria and put in good bacteria, which boosts our immune system. These dietary guidelines will have you saying goodbye to your prescription inhaler for good.

Asthma results from inflammation. Take control of inflammation with exercise. Yes, exercise! It strengthens your lung muscles, which improves lung function. It strengthens your heart, which makes you less winded with exertion. Pick exercises that work best for people with asthma.
