Hi everyone,



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.

There is a link between UC and Asthma - I saw an article about this a few years ago. I'm glad the raw-food diet is helping. If you have pets at home, that could be one reason for the sneezing at home that improves away from home. Could also be that there is a mold issue in your house, or that you're allergic to dust mites - most office buildings have central air circulation that may remove dust better than home air circulation systems, especially if the air filter on your home air system isn't changed frequently.
