I'm new to this forum. I've been HCRV for going on 5 days now, and it's going relatively well. I'm getting in 3,000 cals a day, drinking lots of water, and getting as much sleep as I can. However, my asthma has been HORRIBLE! Should I expect my asthma to get worse before it starts getting better? My hope is that I will be able to get off all of my asthma medication through this lifestyle.
Dear Katie!! :)
My dad had asthma almost all his life, it was so horrible that we all thought that one day he will die because of it... he needed an asthma-spray every 15 minutes!! It was 10 years ago when he healed asthma (at this time we were not "raw" yet, just ate a "normal standard diet") when he cut out ALL animals proteins and products of his diet. Against all the doctors who told him to drink more milk, SO stupid!!!!!!
So I REALLY think that a raw food diet will heal your asthma. I can imagine that it gets worse in the beginning because of all the mucus and stuff that is in your body, but it will get better ... I hope it so much and I'm really of the opinion that you will heal it.
All the best to you from my heart! Peace& love from Desi
I previously had asthma and mild allergies. While over all things are improved, on ozone action days, I can still have mild symptoms.
I eat a few mono meals of oranges. Oranges are anti inflammatory, anti pain, anti histamine, and have some compounds similar to caffeine that can open bronchial airways.
I also drink plenty of water like 3-4 quarts on those days, and rest.
Give yourself a few weeks, and overall, you asthma symptoms should improve, heal, and possibly disappear altogether.
