Research shows: Eat more fiber-containing foods may control asthma
The latest research found that intestinal bacteria interact with immune cells and inflammatory cells that cause allergies. As long as you eat more fiber-rich foods, it is possible to control the onset of hay fever, asthma, eczema and food allergies.
According to the Herald Sun, 310 million people in Australia suffer from hay fever, 270 million suffer from asthma, and 80 suffer from eczema.Dr. Emma Beckett, a molecular nutritionist at the University of Newcastle, said that by changing diet to suppress inflammatory cells can help control the onset of hay fever, asthma, eczema and food allergies.
Another research report published this year found that there are fewer types of bacteria in the intestines of hay fever patients and a large number of specific types of bacteria.Another study found that every time people eat "hairy" foods (such as sugar, saturated fat, and refined carbohydrates), the probability of developing asthma increases by 70%.
Beckett said that in order to increase the diversity of intestinal bacteria, people who are prone to allergies need to eat more fiber-rich foods, because bacteria that are beneficial to the human body depend on fiber to survive, and each beneficial bacteria has its own "like" Fiber.
However, Beckett said that there is no need to eat those probiotics or supplements that are good for intestinal health, just eat more general foods such as whole wheat bread, fruits, vegetables and beans.She also warned: "Don't do things that will damage the intestinal bacteria, such as drinking too much alcohol, smoking or eating some high-fat, high-calorie foods."
Professor Mimi Tang of the Murdoch Children's Research Institute said that eating chilled rice, artichokes, onions and green bananas can help produce beneficial gut bacteria.
Melbourne mother, Yvonne Michael, has always tried to get her two daughters, 10-year-old Giselle and 7-year-old Chloe, to eat anti-inflammatory foods to control their asthma attacks.
Giselle was admitted to the hospital for asthma when he was a toddler.Michael said: "The situation at the time was really terrible, so I thought it was necessary to change this state." "I gave them a probiotic and specific foods-almond honey and cinnamon to help reduce inflammation. It's my way."
Michael said that her two daughters have to eat beans such as lentils, cucumbers and tomatoes at least once a week.She said: "Seeing that they need less and less medicine every year, I think it must have something to do with diet."
