I’ve never been on this forum but I decided to go on it today. As a child I used to have asthma troubles, I’ve had nebulizers, theophilines (slo-bid), inhalers (asthma court, ventolin), and I was on predinisone a couple of times, only for short periods of time. As I grew older the asthma seemed to get better and I only use my inhaler every once in a while. However I’ve always had consistent sneezing, Every morning every evening, every time I got out of the shower. It does get better when I go to work, but I do have it on my way to work when I'm on the tube.
I wanted to say this as at the present and only 3 weeks in I have been experimenting with a raw foods diet, which is 80% raw foods. So I have had things like boiled potatoes, but mostly green vegetables and fruit. The thing is for the last 3 weeks (and I know I am only 3 weeks in) I have had very little sneezing, in fact the sneezing has almost been non -existent. I found this weird so if anyone else has tried this please let me know, I keep trying to find someone else who has.
I am wondering also does anyone else with asthma also have IDB, because I think the two could be linked.
