Asthma

Vitalia’s Approach to Asthma

Asthma is an inflammatory disease, characterized by difficulty breathing, that may be triggered by exercise, exposure to allergens or a weakened immune system.  Food sensitivities, which are inflammatory to the body, are often a cause of asthma.  At Vitalia, we test for and eliminate food sensitivities in our patients.  Often this treatment alone provides huge benefit to the patient.

Adrenal imbalance may be a cause for some children with a history of asthma.  Once the adrenal imbalance is assessed, the child can be treated to rejuvenate the adrenals, thereby often greatly improving asthma.

Essential fatty acids such as omega-3s are one of the most important nutritional recommendations for asthma patients.  These oils act as potent anti-inflammatories, that decrease the reactiveness of the airway passages and decrease allergic tendencies.  They also support adrenal function and decrease the effects of stress.  At Vitalia, we customize a treatment plan for each child individually, assessing the causes of asthma in each unique case.
