I have been reading some articles lately that suggest many people with allergies and asthma have undiagnosed milk allergies and that eliminating all dairy products can greatly reduce or even cure allergy and asthma symptoms? What do you think? I was wondering if a milk free diet would be worth a try for a couple of weeks to see if the asthma improves. Has anyone ever done that?

It can. Different people do different things and some are helped by eliminating dairy. Danny is allergic to dairy which we have known since about 2-3 weeks old so we haven't tried it per se but it wouldn't hurt to give it a whirl. Maybe it will help! I know it can make mucous worse even in non asthmatics when they have colds and such so it makes sense to me even from a non-allergy standpoint. I don't think that most or maybe even "many" percentage-wise have this as a trigger/reason but it is certainly possible and worth a try.

Thanks .:Shortcake:. for my GREAT siggy.

I agree and to be honest, I think it can be any kind of allergy, especially delayed food allergies. If you body is constantly fighting allergens, it can cause the body to not be able to fight off asthma induced allergies. If the body is healed, especially in the gut, the body can take on those allergens.

Some are and some aren't helped by elimination of dairy. That being said, we're a dairy-free household. Elimination of dairy did help a couple of my asthma children and didn't help a couple of others. The ones it did help - they only have flair ups when they are sick. The others only had illness-induced asthma to begin with. But anyway you slice it we're still dairy-free.

I think yes. Like milk, it produces more mucus secretions, thus, aggravating the already-narrowed airways through the lungs -- result, difficulty of breathing.
