Gluten and Dairy Free

Recently I have been trying to eat healthier and looking into which foods could help to improve my health and help me get the most out of my body. I currently suffer from Asthma and decided to research if this could be improved through diet.

Asthma –A respiratory condition marked by attacks of spasm in the bronchi of the lungs, causing difficulty in breathing. It is usually connected to allergic reaction or hypersensitivity.

From watching quite a few YouTube videos I discovered that by going gluten free and dairy free this could vastly improve my asthma.

After looking into this I have become informed on how diet can help so many illnesses and conditions that I had never really thought about before.

Therefore, over the next few weeks or so I am going to slowly start to bring this diet into my lifestyle. I am not going to stop taking my inhalers as this could be dangerous, but I am going to try to see if there is any improvement in how often I need to take them.

I will be sharing a few recipes that I try out and I will be letting you know if there are any improvements that I notice along the way.

If anyone had any tips/recipes they know of then please feel free to share 🙂
