Hi everyone. I am new to this website, and have actually never participated in something like this before. My son (who is 6) has TERRIBLE, uncontrolled asthma. He was finally diagnosed just before his second birthday. He can present with different symptoms with each exacerbation (anywhere on the severity spectrum), has probably every known trigger out there, and pretty much lives in the yellow zone. He also is highly allergic to dogs and peanuts, and has eczema. We usually have to get oral steroids 6-7 times a year. He has never been "hospitalized" for his asthma or turned blue, and his yellow and red zones are "hazy" (meaning he is "red" on paper, but not severe for 911 – he is a trooper; tough kid).
I am wondering if anyone has ANY suggestions to help make his "living with asthma" a little easier. Does anyone have experience following an "anti-inflammation" diet – does it help? Has anyone tried using local honey to help relieve allergy triggers?
Thanks in advance,
