Asthma is a chronic lung condition caused by chronic inflammation and thickening of the bronchial tubes. It is extremely serious conditions as it can lead to suffocation.

Most asthma sufferers are allergic and sensitive. Therefore, whenever their lungs are irritated, the muscles tighten and produce phlegm in the throat. The attacks are usually accompanied with shortness of breath, wheezing, and coughing.

People with asthma use an inhaler, a medical device which helps them breathe the medicine straight into the lungs where it is needed. However, inhalers are a potential risk for additional health issues, as they contain many chemicals which are detrimental from the lungs. Interestingly, some people have managed to cure asthma by reducing the use of inhalers.

On the other hand, it has been shown that healthy foods are extremely effective in relieving asthma symptoms, as they remove inflammation in the air passages, reduce the allergy reaction, dilate the air that triggers the attacks, and thin the mucus in the lungs.

In order to eliminate respiratory issues, you need to consume foods rich in vitamin C and beta-carotene. Therefore, the consumption of carrot juice and adding a couple of ribs into your meals would be extremely beneficial. In addition to this, you should consume foods rich in chlorophyll as they detoxify the liver and colon.

Therefore, besides consuming carrot juice, you need to make some changes into your daily diet. Below is the recommended portion of asthma-friendly foods:

-            ¼ pineapple+ 1 fennel+ 8-10 leaves of kale+ 3-4 radish(pungent)+ ½ lemon

-            2 cups of strawberries+ 1 cup cranberries+ 1 pomegranate

-            1 oz(1 shot) wheatgrass juice+ a squeeze of lemon juice

-             ¼ pineapple+ 1 cucumber+ 2 capsicums (yellow/red)+ ½ bunch watercress+ ½ lemon

-             2 green apples+ 6 ribs celery+ a bunch of spinach+ a bunch of parsley+ ¼ lemon

-             1 cucumber+ 2 medium-sized beetroots+ 3 sticks lemongrass+ ½ lemon

Additionally, here is a list of foods you need to avoid in order to prevent future asthma attacks:

-          Sodium and monosodium glutamate ( as they can increase the constriction of the bronchial tubes that the histamine causes)

-          Citrus fruits

-          Animal products like eggs, cow milk, dairy, meat( beef, pork, mutton, chicken and fish)

-          Alcohol and soft drinks

-          Vegetable oil like corn, sunflower, safflower

Note:  Even though citrus fruits should be avoided, lemons and lemon juice are considered beneficial for this condition. In fact, lemon juice owes its anti-asthmatic property to vitamin C and unlike other citrus fruits, it has an alkalizing effect.
