Exercise-Induced Asthma Reduced

Dr. Cordain,

I'm having a unique experience. I started slowly adjusting my diet closer to the grass produced or free ranging meats, seafood, vegetables and fruits. I followed the diet even more closely when I came down to Florida. Perhaps it is a coincidence, or perhaps it is the change of climate from Wisconsin to Florida, but my exercise-induced asthma and chronic lung congestion has improved greatly. I haven’t taken my Advair inhaler in almost a week, and I’ve been taking it every day for three, maybe even four years, and my lungs are more clear than they have been in recent memory. I am almost normal in that I am no longer coughing up any phlegm like I have been doing for years. Here’s hoping it was diet related and it continues when I go back to La Crosse. If my change in diet is making the change in my lungs, you ought to get the Nobel Prize in medicine. I’m only sort of joking. That would be incredible. I will be patient as it may be all a coincidence. I have cut way back on the bagels, grains, cereal, rice, pasta and increased the fruits, vegetables, grass produced or free ranging meats and fish. I have also cut back on the bad fats and increased the good fats although I could do even better in this area. Keep your fingers crossed. It is kind of exciting and I'm hoping the change is permanent.
