Here is a snippet of what you will find:
- Eating Healthy: Don’t forget the vitamins! I review the importance of Vitamin C in preventing the development of asthma and allergies. I discuss the good effects of Vitamin D in improving the response to inhaled steroid medications used for asthma and even how it can improve the immune response.
