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.

Many times we find adrenal imbalance in patients with a history of asthma.  Once the adrenal imbalance is assessed, the patient 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 patient individually, assessing the causes in each unique case.
